In my studies I came across some alarming statics: “There are 200 million non-believers in America and of the younger generation 63%-Don’t believe Jesus is the Son of God, 58%-believe all faith teach equal spiritual values, 51% – don’t believe Jesus rose from the dead, 68% do not believe the Holy Spirit is a real entity and 65% do not believe Satan is real. The results in these believes are a rise in anger by 225%, 216, rise in resentment 210, lack of purpose in one’s life, and 200% chance of experiencing a disappointing life. In addition 48% of students are likely to cheat on exams, 200% more likely to steal, 200%, more like to hurt someone, 300% likely to use illegal drugs, and 600% more likely to commit suicide.” Dave Early and David WheelerEvangelism Is How to Share Jesus with Passion and Confidence”.(B&H Academics, Nashville, TN). 27-28.

 

What is the solution?

To find Salvation through Jesus and follow his Great Commission:

Matthew 28:18-20

New International Version (NIV)

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

Is this enough For true Salvation?

No!

One must also remember Micah 6:8

Micah 6:8

New International Version (NIV)

8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.

And what does the Lord require of you?

To act justly and to love mercy

and to walk humbly[a] with your God

What does it mean to live justly: Obey God, Seek Guidance in his word, and to Trust Him in all areas of your Life.

What does it mean to life merciful: to forgive like Christ and to repent. A whole study could be pursued on this.

Finally humility: to be free form selfishness, vanity, self-centeredness, Ego and to be small less than those you witness to, teach and lead. So they may learn.

One Should  give God the Glory and  and not man the credit, Say “Thanks be to God for what you have done for me instead of Thank You!” Pride is a struggle for most and blocks spiritual; growth.

 

Humility takes a lifetime to master.

 

In Christ Love and Grace,

 

Trent
