Citate de A.W.Tozer (via) Angela Peschir

Multumesc unei prietene pentru urmatoarele rinduri scrise de A.W.Tozer:

1. Straduieste-te sa treci dincolo de o simpla tanjire a gandului. – Fa-ti fata ca o cremene si incepe sa iti pui in ordine viata. Orice om este atat de sfant pe cat isi doreste sa fie. Dar dorinta trebuie sa fie, intr-adevar, irezistibila.
2. Leapada orice obicei necrestin. – Daca alti crestini il practica fara sa ii mustre constiinta, poate ca Dumnezeu te cheama pe tine sa te apropii mai mult de El decat sunt dispusi acesti alti crestini sa o faca. Aminteste-ti cuvintele: “Altii au voie, tu nu”. Nu condamna si nu critica, ci cauta o cale mai buna. Dumnezeu te va onora.
3. Adu-L pe insusi Hristos in centrul inimii tale si pastreaza-L acolo in mod continuu. – Doar in Hristos vei gasi implinire totala. In El poti fi unit cu Dumnezeu intr-o constienta lucida, vitala.
4. Deschideti inima pentru Duhul Sfant si invita-L sa te umple. – O va face. Nu lasa pe nimeni sa iti interpreteze Scriptura in asa fel incat sa elimine darul Tatalui, Duhul. Fiecare om este atat de plin de Duhul pe cat vrea sa fie.
5. Poarta-te mai aspru cu tine si mai bland cu altii. – Poarta-ti crucea, dar nu pune niciodata una pe spatele altcuiva. Cultiva partasia cu Dumnezeu prin rugaciune, smerenie, ascultare si renuntare la sine. (parereataconteaza1)

Ligon Duncan – Why the Resurrection Matters

…a very good insight on an aspect of postmodern style thinking from sermon-     „the plot always has these three components:  the church used to believe this – that is, that Jesus was literally raised from the dead on the third day – but through our brilliant insight and our scholarly pursuit, we now know that  is not true. But not to worry! We don’t have to abandon Christianity! We just need to reinterpret it.”

Please read entire sermon for an accurate assessment of the times we live in:

1 Corinthians 15:1-58

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to I Corinthians 15.  It is appropriate that on this day that we would spend some time considering the biblical teaching about the resurrection and its significance. There is much confusion on this  subject in our own day and time. There are many in the secular world who delight in calling into the truth of the resurrection. There are many within the Christian church who are confused about the truth of the resurrection, and some who are laboring hard to sound a trumpet with an uncertain sound about the resurrection. Many are speaking about the resurrection in such a way as to reinterpret it, to call it into question in the minds of Christians. And it is altogether appropriate that we pause and reflect what the biblical teaching is about the resurrection,  and especially the resurrection of Jesus Christ,  and its significance. We cannot jump too quickly to the significance of the resurrection before we have embraced the truth of the resurrection, itself. C. S. Lewis reminded us,  long ago, that there is a tendency in our age “to believe something because its good, rather than because it is true.” But if it is not true, than ultimately it does not matter if it seems good or not. We must be convinced both of the truth of the resurrection as well as its positive, good, and beneficial significance for us, before we can drink deeply of the draft of blessings which the Lord has prepared for us. So, let’s hear God’s Holy word here in 1 Corinthians, beginning in verse 1:

„Now, I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all, as it were to one untimely born, He appeared to me also. For I am the least of the apostles, who am not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me. Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you  believe.”

Amen. This is God’s Holy and inspired word. May He write its eternal truth upon our hearts. Let’s pray.

O Lord, by Your Spirit, make us behold wonderful truths from Your word, and enlighten us to the saving truth of the resurrection, and its great significance for our Christian living. In Jesus’ name, we ask it. Amen.

About this time of year, every year that I can remember in the age of my teenage to adulthood, somebody – somewhere – and usually many people in many places, write articles, release books, do interviews or are interviewed on a television special, that attempt to debunk the historic Christian teaching about the resurrection. It may be a professor at the local university that announces in a startling interview with the newspaper that “Now all intelligent people everywhere know that Jesus did not rise again from the dead on the third day.” Or it may be a famous New Testament scholar, who is hawking books that he is preparing to sell in the market, through writing articles in a newspaper or in a major new magazine, debunking the resurrection. Or, it may be a television special, offered on one of the special cable channels that purports to give you the „real story” behind the resurrection account in the gospel. But it just seems that every year about this time, someone is making what they say is a new and startling revelation about the truth surrounding the death and burial of Jesus Christ. And the plot always has these three components:  the church used to believe this – that is, that Jesus was literally raised from the dead on the third day – but through our brilliant insight and our scholarly pursuit, we now know that  is not true. But not to worry! We don’t have to abandon Christianity! We just need to reinterpret it. The resurrection isn’t Jesus coming back from the dead – it is the cosmic victory of life over mortality. Whatever that means! And the plot is always the same: the church used to believe this; we are smarter than that now. We don’t believe it anymore,  but we can still believe the Easter Story even if the Easter Story didn’t happen.
