Undaunted

Today I finished a book called Undaunted by Christine Caine. It is a book written to inspire you to go into a dark and troubled world - because each of us possesses all it takes to bring hope, create change, and live completely for Christ. The book dares you to do what God has called you to do. It is a great book, but it has caused me to give myself a heart check-up. I have recently been praying that God would reveal to me little things about my life that I need to fix or improve and that He would test the purity of my heart. And He has done just that.

Some Important Questions

1. Can we be believers in Jesus yet not bear any fruit?
"So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits." Matthew 7:17-20
Here Jesus tells us that we recognize people by the fruit they bear. Also, He doesn't say that some healthy trees bear good fruit - He says EVERY. And EVERY tree that doesn't bear good fruit is cut thrown and tossed to the flames.

The Cross [Part 2]

And He said to all, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me." Luke 9:23

The cross is more than two intersecting horizontal and vertical lines. The cross is more than a symbol on a cute pair of earrings. The cross is SO much more than that and in today's American culture, we often fail to understand or even see the significance of the cross.
