Grace to You blog - Backsliding

http://www.gty.org/Blog/B160127/backsliding

Here is the most recent in the series of articles about Christian cliches. This one discusses backsliding.

As one who 'backslid' for many years, this  one hit close to home.

On a slightly different note, reading this series and recent conversation with my pastor has made me think that maybe I should relate my own personal story of how the Lord God has worked in my life. Perhaps those of you reading this will see my experiences and find how God can work in all of us. Or maybe I just need to write it so that I can share my testimony with the lost. More to come.

God bless.

A very good series of articles on Christian cliches

http://www.gty.org/Blog/B160120/ask-jesus-into-your-heart

This is the first in a series of articles on the Grace To You blog dealing with Christian cliches. This one c9nfronts the cliche of 'asking Jesus into your heart'. As usual, this is well-written and I don't have much to add.

The last paragraph really gets to the heart of the matter regarding this first cliche:

"Rather than asking sinners to accept Christ we should call them to plead for His acceptance. Rather than telling sinners to “make Jesus Lord” we should call them to submit to His lordship. And instead of calling sinners to a saving altar, we should entrust them to a sovereign Savior."

There are several more articles and I'll post links to those as well.

Thanks and God bless.
