    Walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers: Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. He said to them, 'Come after me, and I will make you fishers for men.' They immediately left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18 WEBAs J...

    He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor repaid us for our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his loving kindness toward those who fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. Psalms 103:10 WEBDuring our...

Perverted Gospel

  • I marvel that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ to a different 'good news', but there isn't another 'good news.' Only there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the Good News of Christ. But even though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you any 'good news' other than that which we preached to you, let him be cursed. Galatians 1:6 WEB

    There was an uproar amongst the Galatians. Though they had begun in the spirit, they were seduced back into keeping religious laws. Gentiles, people who were not Jews, were told that they needed to be circumcised and obey the law of Moses like they were Jews in order to be saved. Paul made it very clear that we are saved through faith in the Lord Jesus alone, and not by legalism. In Galatians 3:3 Paul wrote 'Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?'

    We need to stay in tune with the Holy Spirit. When we start to become stale, our Christian walk is reduced to keeping a set of rules. Then that becomes our measurement of faith, and we will spread it to those following us. The close relationship gradually fades into the background. Yes we still pray, we still go through the motions, but it is mostly legalism. Rule keeping by rote.

    Our heart and our eyes begin to stray and wander after other things. The grass seems to become greener over there. At that point, we have left our first love and our gospel has become perverted. It has been reduced to rules, and what was once a hot relationship, is now cold legalism. You can visit cold, dead churches all across the world where Jesus is only a distant memory, but He longs to speak to each of us today.

    Stay in tune with the Lord daily. When you are walking close to Him, you will fulfill His requirements and be pleasing in His sight without all of the religious rules. I found that many of the things that I was brought up to believe as 'God Pleasing' were not even in the Bible. They were merely the teachings of men. Check behind your leaders and be sure to read it for yourself. Rekindle that relationship with Jesus. Speak to Him as the friend that sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please pour fresh fire on me and give me a zeal to shake off the water. Draw my heart to You and give me an extreme spiritual makeover. Fire me up God, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: Happy Monday! For those who didn't see the announcement, we did not bring a Bible Study this week because of Dion's wisdom tooth surgery. Thank you all for your prayers on that! You are more than welcome to catch up with the previous studies here: RHM Bible Study
