After accepting Jesus Christ, as my personal Savior and Lord, one of my main concerns was the Spiritual growth and development of mankind, whether he or she is saved or not. The Apostle Paul by the Holy Spirit has classified all mankind into three groups or categories, (1 Corinthians 2: 9 - 3: 4): (1) The, " Natural Man," the one who lives a worldly life, a sinner, and has not accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord; (2) The, "Carnal Man," one who has accepted Christ, but is still living and doing worldly things; (3) ...
After accepting Jesus Christ, as my personal Savior and Lord, one of my main concerns was the Spiritual growth and development of mankind, whether he or she is saved or not. The Apostle Paul by the Holy Spirit has classified all mankind into three groups or categories, (1 Corinthians 2: 9 - 3: 4): (1) The, " Natural Man," the one who lives a worldly life, a sinner, and has not accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord; (2) The, "Carnal Man," one who has accepted Christ, but is still living and doing worldly things; (3) The, "Spiritual Man," one who is saved and is truly dedicated in pleasing and serving God. As I previously stated, I was concerned about the aspects and condition of the spiritual growth and development of mankind. After reading about what the apostle Paul had written in 1 Corinthians 2: 9 - 3: 4, it made me become more aware of these conditions, and what I could do to assess the situation. Immediately, I began to focus back on my life. How God had transformed me from a "natural man," (worldly/sinner) man to a "spiritual man." Within this process, I realized that God had allowed me to come through so many trials and tribulations, for my good. God, through His grace had performed many miracles in my life, which have contributed to my spiritual growth and development. I give thanks to God for His blessings and miracles. I decided to praising and glorify Him by witnessing to people for a testimony on how He brought me as a sinner to become a Christians (spiritual man). During all of this time, I did not know that God was cleansing, conditioning, and preparing me, for Him to commission me to do His will. One evening while lying in bed, staring up at the ceiling of my bedroom, God spoke to me, and told me to write a book about, "testimonies of His divine blessings." A funny feeling came over me, and I said to my self, why hadn't I thought about this before now. Then I realized it wasn't for me to think of own my own, but it was God's will and not mine. This commission was of His will and to glorify Him only. Later God inspired me to realize that there are many people today that really do not believe that He is still blessing people and performing miracles in their lives, as He did in the Bible days. But if those people can witness God's blessings and miracles, it could possibly change their views about Jesus Christ, and inspire them to repent of their sins, and become saved. After I began thinking about all the miracles and blessing that God allowed me to witness; I realized He was preparing me for the purpose of writing His book. With much prayer for God's guidance, I began witnessing to others by sharing what God commissioned me to do, and the importance of sharing their testimonies for this project. In sharing their testimonies, some was hesitant to respond, and there were many eager to honor and glorify God in sharing their testimonies. My testimonies and other testimonies could help convict the belief of the "natural man," revive the beliefs of the "carnal man" and inspire the "Spiritual man." There are many people today that just do not realized that there is another way, a way provided through Jesus' suffering, His death, His Word, and His resurrection; that will allow mankind to live a life that is pleasing in God's site, and His divine will. This way is through his Son Jesus Christ, by the way of repentance. By repenting and accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, mankind will have an everlasting life (John 3: 16). By accepting Christ as your Lord and Savior, you will become empowered with the Holy Spirit; which will assure you the opportunity of salvation; His presence, His love, His grace, will be there when you need Him, if you believe. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ can restore and change broken hearts, and fragile lives of those that are willing to risk and totally submit their lives unto His will; within His own timing.
