I find it hardest to be christlike when hott women are involved.Beautiful ladies definately take my mind into a lustful place.A trick a christian friend taught me just this week is as follows.
Have someone count to 20 silentley in there head. While they are counting tell them to "say thier name" When they say it ask them what number they were on. The lesson behind this is they wont remember the number they were on.
Meaning when you get off track.Speak it somewhere else. Say something that puts you somewhere else. Im not saying speaking is Christlike.But trying to keep love and service in your mind( instead of the trash we deal with) is one step closer to Him.
I find another thing that helps me.Is to start my day off right.On my way to work I will tell satan to get off my back in the name of Jesus.He has no power over the name. When I was a kid our preacher taught us that .
I might sound crazy to some of you.But I am building my relationship with Christ everyday. I know I'll never be worthy myself.But through him I can live in Glory! And I know were gonna be Jammin in Heaven one day.
My life is hardest to be a Christian in real life. I'm content with me and mine. He smiles on me. I work alone...
Sometimes it's hardest when I'm reminded of scripture in situations. Good ones and bad ones. Sometimes the timing isn't right to raise your hands. Other times it's not a receptive crowd and you sit on your hands. Most times you just think you know what's right then it's gone. And other times you're caught up in it...
sometimes you toss spears...
Then go to confession online... LaughOutLoud
No penance so far...
Is this open to any religion?
Ok. I am a Celtic Christian and I was looking for the same views and some guidance in life. How long have you been a pastor?
I would have to say definitely in the workplace! I am a carpenter ( need I say more) . All my coworkers are into drugs ,porno,and most just plain wordly. I try to read the Bible daily and alot of times will carry a verse written on a piece of paper that will inspire me for the day! I have tried bringing a small Bible but they can get wrecked if I have it on me and it is raining. I also put some of the Bible apps on my ipod touch, and will peak at them from time to time throughout the day!
OK to not knock on doors?..... sure, but sometimes it's "needful"... the trick is know when which is which... I know this, I have to work harder reaching someone "offended" by a self-righteous, condemning Christian that I do reaching someone who has had little or no contact with Christ, the church and Christians....
Each of us have gifts and "styles" that are hard wired... and for the most part, that's where we should live... ah, except for the times when we know we are called to live bigger and bolder... beyond our "comfort zones". But when that is only each person can tell...
Ted Crocker said:Sam, I missed "Christ-like".
What you do is be proud of how you act all the time.
Is it okay if some of us are religious or theological but don't knock on doors? Some of us think there were more than 2 termites on the Ark, but still appreciate a good passage. You're cool 'cause you don't tell anyone why their God is wrong, you get that! He has a tan and a different language south of the border with a different statue. Still Him...
ANYONE who worships will receive
Faith counts, right?
