If you are not being transformed in the inner man to be made into the image of Christ, then your religion - no matter how active - is in vain. God is not concerned with the outside works, but the inner work. If the inside is clean, then such will take care of the outside all by itself
Nothing speaks so clearly to the fact that God alone is the Creator of all than to see what happens to man when he turns away from God. If there is no God, then man in his most vile state should still be able to flourish from a societal perspective...but this has never happened. What is the leading predictor of society's decline? Their views on sex.
One of the characteristics of man in the last days is that he will be high-minded. We must not seek after the wisdom of men. Our goal must be to redeem the times we are in and seek God while He may be found so that we are conformed into His image and prepared for every good work.
We know that Jesus came as the second Adam to crucify the old sin nature which man was born with as a result of the fall. However, Scripture also makes plain what exemplifies that nature and shows exactly what was crucified on the cross.
Don't think that a bunch of activity means you are close to the Lord. Oftentimes, a bunch of fervor in religious circles is a cover for those who are actually running away from Christ. They are a lot of good - but dead - works.
When God changes your heart into a reflection of His own and grants you new life in Him by His Spirit, the natural result is gratitude
What God decrees is not up for human debate or input. God is not concerned with humanistic perspectives of "fairness". He does exactly what He wants to do, for He is sovereign. Further, even His enemies can only do what He allows and likewise serve to fulfill His purposes.

I then said, we sing praise and worship for a while, we pray and there is teaching. "What kind of teaching?", he asked. I told him teaching out of God's word.
The purpose of church has been largely lost in terms of spending time studying and meditating on God's word versus being entertained. Yet, there is a ministry whose focus is on building up disciples for the Body of Christ, and I invite you to come out and join us if you are able.
What: Dunamis Tabernacle
Location: Atlanta Renaissance Hotel
1 Hartsfield Center Parkway
Atlanta, GA 30354

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again." John 3:3-7
The following sermon is from Min. David Pawson as he explains what it means to be born again.
Many do not understand what it means to be born again and therefore are unprepared to live the Christian life. They have not been born again, but have simply undertaken religious rituals without understanding what they mean or what they require in order to walk them out.
I believe that this series will be a tremendous blessing for many. Please take some quiet time to listen and study regarding what has been said; it is worth it. May God give us ears to hear His word.
What is the New Birth?
- The new birth is not instantaneous, but is a process.
- How you begin your spiritual life impacts how you live your spiritual life
- Many are leading others to Christ with religious euphemisms instead of biblical truths
- The Bible indicates four steps necessary to be born again:
- Be Baptized in Water
- Receive the Holy Spirit
- All four steps are acts of men (constituting conversion), but they are also acts of God (constituting regeneration). At every stage, man is doing something and God is doing something; it is a beautiful cooperation.

Since I had some questions, I stopped writing it until I received the answer. Then in church the next day, a video was shown that answered every question (I have included that below). It is so wonderful to me how the Father is a personal God. He knows and hears every petition of our hearts.
Okay, so I have an easy science question for you. Let's say you set some ice cubes out before a hot sun. What is going to happen? The cubes are going to melt.
Now let's place some clay pots before that same sun. What will happen? The clay will get harder. See, I told you this was easy. :-)
Is it the sun which causes the ice to melt? Yes.
Is it the sun which causes the clay to harden? Yes.
So how can the same sun cause such different reactions? The difference is due to the varying make-up of the objects in the sun. It is the same with God. Some people can be exposed to God and their hearts will melt; others can be exposed to God, and the hearts become harder. It is the same God who causes the result, but the difference is based upon the condition of the object.
