Are you a new believer, or just returning to the Lord? Do you feel the Lord calling you into fellowship with His son Jesus? Maybe you have been reading a Sign4Jesus each day, or maybe someone has been talking to you about Jesus. You are sensing His word having an affect on you. You feel your spirit stirring and rising up within you, but your not exactly sure what is your next step. You are being drawn by the Holy Spirit into relationship with Jesus and into fellowship with the body of Christ. In the book of Hebrews Ch 10 we are instructed not to forsake the assembling of the saints. Why? Because this is a critical time for you to seek mature believers in your life to come along side with you, to look out for you and encourage you forward into a deeper, fuller and richer relationship with Jesus.
Mathew 13: 18 “Therefore hear the parable of the sower: 19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. 20 But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles. 22 Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. 23 But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”
In the scriptures above we see that their are 4 categories of those who hear the word. Sadly three of those four are drawn away by various circumstances.
1. Some have that word snatched away from them by the wicked one.
2. Some experience tribulation because of the word and stumble.
3. Some due to the deceitfulness and cares of the world, the word is choked out of them.
But you must be of the fourth category! You are of those who hear the word and receive it on good ground, understanding His word, bearing and producing much fruit!
Hold Fast Your Confession
Hebrews 10: 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
If you have received Jesus into your life, you are now a member of the household of God! You are a brother, a sister, a citizen of the Saints!
