What the great earthquake is to the Californian the great Tribulation is to the whole world. You will not escape it.
Have you felt alone or isolated during 2020 or 2021? Then this conversation with Pastor Chuck Swindoll is for you.
Certain anchors are dropped during childhood and if they’re not dealt with, they remain dropped, clinging to the bottom. And as the boat goes on in life, and as we get older, the anchor is dragging all along in whatever area is dropped and not dealt with.
What do you see when you look in the mirror? How do you perceive yourself? Someone has said, “Perceptions are reality.” Someone else said, “Whatever you think you are—you are!”
Here is a bold statement: If you see yourself as a sinner, saved by grace, you will sin and your Christian life will be mediocre at best. You will be riddled with guilt and open to Satan’s attack along that line. In other words, what we believe about ourselves determines our behaviour. One of Satan’s most successful schemes is that of keeping Christians ignorant of their true identity in Christ.
What’s the key to winning people for Christ? Is it a convincing argument or an emotional church service? Perhaps a specific formula of verses and prayers? In this message, Chuck Swindoll explains the most important factor in evangelism.
Here’s a funny story from Chuck illustrating how easy it is to talk to someone and yet not communicate with him. To be on the same page we need to meet people where they’re at and accept them without judgment or criticism.
Pray about everything. When you pray you’re giving your worries to God. He understands what you’re worrying about and He knows exactly what He’s doing. If you leave it to Him, He’ll work it out.
