Fat Albert Christians
   Got this message from a Yahoo Christian Group that I am a member of indeed a very good eye opener and this is indeed a very good refecltion to consider.. let me share...

Fat Albert Christians By Brandon Bracey
Key Verse: James 2:26," As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead."

    I enjoy getting fed a good word in church. There is nothing like a sermon that speaks directly to you and your situation when you need it! I  enjoy wonderful sermons and receiving life-transforming words. Recently, we had campmeeting services at my church. For a whole week of every year, we listen to wonderful sermons from guest speakers in the morning and evening. You talk about getting fed... I felt like I had just eaten a whole buffet! But then it hit me... this was a great meal but if I do not exercise or apply what I have learned, I'll get really big and comfortable!!!

   I love Fat Albert. He was cool and he was big. I recently heard a preacher use the phrase," Fat Albert Christians" in one of his sermons. He was referring to people who come to church and get a good word and never operate in service in the church. They get a good knowledge of the word, but never grow because they do not exercise the knowledge. They get fed, but then become comfortable in the pews.

   This is interesting because we can easily be deceived into thinking that all we need to do is get a word from a popular preacher and go to a wonderful service and that's it. Then we come home for the rest of the week, eat popcorn, watch Dr. Phil, and say the Lord is good. But God needs us in service now! Yes you need the word, but God expects us to be working to fulfill the Great Commission and to spread love for the building of the Kingdom of God on earth. It may come in the form of preaching, but not always. You could be called to be an usher, work as a greeter, or with the television equipment, or evangelism. Even if you have yet to know what you are truly called to do, you can still lend a helping hand until it is revealed to you by God.

   Also service is important for our growth as believers. It allows us to exercise the gifts God has given us, as well as, learn and grow from one another.

   In order to not fall into the trap of being a Fat Albert Christian, we must make sure our love life is right. If you are motivated by love, you will gladly go out of your way to serve God. It was love that motivated Jesus to die for the sins of the world. It was love- not nails- that kept him on the cross. Therefore, we should be motivated by gratitude to go out of our way for him. Once we are grounded in love, we can then walk by faith. If you have faith in God, then it should be accompanied by service for the Kingdom of God. Commitment is great and needs to be a part of every Christian's life, but it must be rooted in a heart of passionate love for God for it to last.

    Is God still your first love or has a walk for God become a habit that makes you comfortable and feel good? Make God your first love and escape the trap of "The Fat Albert Christian". Your love for God will pay dividends in your spiritual journey and service for the Lord!

   Scripture Reference: James 2:14-26

   Heavenly Father,
  
   You are my first love and I am committed to faithfully serving you. I am your child and I will be the light that this world needs to see. I will serve faithfully so that you can be glorified through my works. I will be grounded in love. Holy Spirit lead me in my love walk. I love you Daddy in Jesus name Amen.

   Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior is the most important and wonderful decision you will ever make in your life. If you would like to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life please pray with me," Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your only begotten Son to die on the cross for my sins. Lord Jesus I thank you for your shed blood and I ask you to forgive me of all sin. I ask you to come into my heart. I make you the Lord and Savior of my life. Amen." If you have just prayed this prayer congratulations! You are saved and are now in the family of God! Please email me at: brandon_bracey00@yahoo.com so I can assist you in your new beginning!

God Uses Problems
   Got this message from a friend and let me just share it to you... Happy reading...


The problems you face will either defeat you or develop you - depending on how you respond to them. 

Unfortunately, most people fail to see how God wants to use problems for good in their lives. They react foolishly and resent their problems rather than pausing to consider what benefit they might bring.

Here are some reasons GOD use the problems in your life...


   1. God uses problems to DIRECT you.

   Sometimes God must light a fire under you to get you moving. Problems often point us in a new direction and motivate us to change. Is God trying to get your attention? "Sometimes it takes a painful situation to make us change our ways." Proverbs 20:30

   2. God uses problems to INSPECT you. 

   People are like tea bags...if you want to know what's inside them, just drop them into hot ever water! Has God tested  your faith with a problem What do problems reveal about you? "When you have many kinds of
troubles, you should  be full of joy, because you know that these troubles test your faith, and this will give you patience." James 1:2-3

   3. God uses problems to CORRECT you.

   Some lessons we learn only through  pain and failure. It's likely that as a child your parents told you not to touch a hot stove. But you probably learned by being burned. Sometimes we only learn the value of
something...health, money, a relationship... by losing it. "It was the best thing that could have happened to me, for it taught me to pay attention to your laws."  Psalm 119:71-72

   4. God uses problems to PROTECT you.

   A problem can be a blessing in disguise if it prevents you from being harmed by something more serious. Last year a friend  was fired for refusing to do something unethical that his boss had asked him to do. His unemployment was a problem - but it saved him from being convicted and sent to prison a year  later when management's actions were eventually discovered. "You intended to harm me, but God intended it  for good... Genesis 50:20

   5. God uses problems to PERFECT you.

   Problems, when responded to correctly, are character builders. God is far more interested in your character than your comfort. Your relationship to God  and your character are the only two things you're
going to take with you into eternity. "We can rejoice when we run into problems... they help us learn to be patient. And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we
use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady." Romans 5:3-4

   Here's the point:

   God is at work in your life - even when you do not recognize it or understand it. But it's much easier and profitable when you  cooperate with Him.

"Success can be measured not only in achievements,
but in lessons learned, lives touched and moments shared along the way."
