2 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.[a] 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3 I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. 4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, 5 so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
The Gospel is a demonstration of the Spirit's Power. If you have received Jesus, He has set you free of sin, that means you have repented and turned away from sin. Jesus states you cannot walk in darkness and light, because darkness is sin, and when the light walks into darkness, it is no longer dark, that means you cannot follow Jesus and live in sin. Repent means to turn 180 degrees, that means when you except Jesus you are set free of sin and you turn and go the other way.
When you are born again a transformation takes place through the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit. If churches and Pastors have told you, all you have to do is say some words with your mouth and you are locked in going to heaven and nobody can take that away from you, and no Spiritual transformation takes place, you are not born again, and Jesus says to have eternal life you must be born of the Spirit, you must be born again.
If you still live in sin and you claim you are a Christian, you are a liar, I did not say you would not make mistakes and stumble. I said you cannot live in sin and be born again. If you are not born again, you have not given your life to Jesus and you will not possess eternal life. It is not about words, it is about giving your life and being transformed by the Spirit. It Is Time to get serious about your eternal direction. What is taking place in this world is going to take you out if you are not born again. You must remain in Jesus,(THE WORD) and He (THE WORD) must remain in you. The times are serious, Luke warm will not be excepted, it is not free, It will cost you your life to have eternal life.
If there is no Spiritual Power taking place in your building that you call a church, you might want to question where is The Holy Spirit??? Why is the Holy Spirit not operating in your building. You are the church, the building is the gathering place for the church to fellowship. The church is the body of Christ, that means the church goes with you when you walk out of the building into the world where you are supposed to be delivering Jesus to all those who don't know Him.
