Do not misunderstand when Christians try to preach and ask you to go to church like direct sales do. Personally I think sometime they are too aggressive probably because they want you (a friend) not to miss out something great -the good news(gospel). Which is something you might not want in terms of different religion faith.
They were suppose to share the good news, not force you into direct sales!
Now why they wanna do this? It is because the Lord Jesus has commanded these to Christians.Notice the bolded verse 16. To bear fruit meaning to spread the Gospel to another soul for their salvation.
2"This is (O)My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.
15"No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for (T)all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.
16"(U)You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and (V)bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that (W)whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.
17"This (X)I command you, that you love one another.John 15:12-17
Why God created man kind ?
Some may ask why God create us in His image ? I studied this in Master life class and I am hapy to share it again with the readers here and tell my friend kimberly and rixin again.
It is because the God's love outflow like husband and wife love each other..they have babies and grow them in their image provide them everything they need with laws and rules guiding them.
26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, [a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
What do the Chrisitans believe in?
Word of God particularly focusing on The new testament, Jesus as the Son of God, Jehovah God the father, and the holy spirit that dwells in all Christian believers.
The below phrase is a teaching i would like to share that we all may have peace and the purity of hearts.
8Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.Philippians 4:4-13
Do not sigh and groan in sufferings... I share the below verses with you...
3Not only so, but we[a] also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
