Christian faith without spiritual deeds is useless!

mikehill4jesus “Christian faith, Churchianity, without spiritual deeds is useless!”

30th June 2016 (10.25) My .mp3 Thought for Today Audio

I have been sharing my Testimony describing John 14:23 since 1977.
I have been requesting Testimony that proves John 14:23 is true since 1996.
Since 1977 I have received only a couple of Testimonies proving John 14:23 is true.

That is 39 years and I don’t have a Christian Friend in my daily life! Christian Church Leaders don’t want anything to do with me!

Quoting the Holy Bible is not sharing Testimony!
It’s so easy for Christians to simply quote the Lord Jesus from the Holy Bible.
John 16:33 ‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’

We have to provide examples that prove to the Lost Souls that the Lord Jesus tells the truth. True Christians can do this, but Churchianity Christians can’t.

Question: “What is a Christian Testimony?”

Answer: The word “testimony” is used in few different ways. One common usage is when a person is brought into a courtroom and placed under oath to tell, attest to, or give witness to his or her personal knowledge or experience with reference to the case that is being heard. To link the word “Christian” to the word “testimony” is to narrow the focus of the testimony and who can give it. Only a Christian can give a Christian testimony, and a Christian is one who has received forgiveness for sin by trusting alone in the person and work of Jesus Christ for that forgiveness.

A Christian testimony is given when Christians relate how we came to know the God of the Bible through the moving of the Holy Spirit in our hearts. Most commonly, we are sharing how we became Christians by God’s miraculous intervention and work in our lives through specific events. Often we can only see that in hindsight, but sharing that experience is vital. Also, when giving this testimony, a sharing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is always a necessity. Though we can include specific information about how we came to accept Christ as Saviour, those details should not be the focus of the testimony. The focus should be about the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.

A Christian testimony should not end with the conversion experience, but should also include the ways in which the Lord has worked in our lives to sanctify us for His service. As an example, a testimony could include how He brought us through a difficult time in our life (such as a loss or some sort or a severe illness) and built our faith in Him through that experience. We should also be able to describe the continual process by which the Spirit who now indwells us leads, guides, moulds and shapes us into mature Christians. Again, the focus should be on the Lord and His faithfulness, and should include at least one verse that speaks of that faithfulness.

Psalm 18:2-6 (NIVUK)
2
The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield [Or sovereign] and the horn [Horn here symbolises strength] of my salvation, my stronghold.

3
I called to the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
and I have been saved from my enemies.
4
The cords of death entangled me;
the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
5
The cords of the grave coiled around me;
the snares of death confronted me.

6
In my distress I called to the Lord;
I cried to my God for help.
From his temple he heard my voice;
my cry came before him, into his ears.

So, if it was me saying that, should I not be able to tell you the who, what, where and when of it all?

James, an early Church Leader taught
James 2:14-26 (NIVUK)
Faith and deeds
14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

18 But someone will say, ‘You have faith; I have deeds.’

Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that – and shudder.

20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless [dead]? 21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that says, ‘Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,’ [Genesis 15:6] and he was called God’s friend. 24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.

25 In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different direction? 26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

The false Christians [Churchianity] can’t provide a true Spiritual Testimony
They do not have the Holy Spirit of God to empower them in their lives and witness for the Lord Jesus, so have nothing to share that is spiritual.
John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. [the Christians] 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. {those involved in Churchianity] These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.’
