What Christ sees in you; And what you are to HIM !
by Chaplain Jimmie Warren
I have talked to many numbers of Christians in the last fifteen years of this ministry that God has given me, They feel they are living below their Spiritual potential and failing their God and religion. With many personal encounters of e-mails, letters, and phone calls, many men and women share their hearts with me about the fact that something is missing in their walk with Christ.
I hear these kinds of questions;
1.“Why do I keep failing when I try so hard to follow Christ Jesus/Yashua?
”I asked them if they have turned their whole life over to Yashua Messiah /Jesus Christ for real and confessed all their sins both past and now?
2.“Why can't I stop these destructive habit, like smoking, drinking, cursing etc....etc...?
”There are not salvation issues and we will be tested until and to the end and some of these things ,we may never over come until we are made perfect in the next life .
3.“Is going to church all there is to the Spiritual life?
”NO Church is just a building, the real Church of God is in you as is the kingdom. Do not look for it in a building or any groups of people, though you can find it there but search your minds and hearts and read your Bible ,for all the answers are there."Where two or three are meeting in my name, there will I be also!" This is church Amen
These kinds of questions has give me the idea that there are many of God's people who see themselves as failures? With polls like this something is something very wrong in our churches?
A poll taken by minister's of many churches around the US where asked "DO YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE SAVED"? 85%
The Word of God says that in order for you and I to move on in Spiritual maturity and overcome destructive tendencies or deadness in our walk for Christ, then we must see ourselves as Christ sees us.
This list will show you how Christ sees you; IN HIM! Then, after you meditate on them for a while, praise him for showing you afresh what His sacrifice did for you! Check it out and be blessed.

Beloved we all feel alone at times. BUT JESUS said “I AM ALWAYS WITH YOU; EVEN TO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD”
When we depend on others to determine our value, then we place ourselves in a position to be disappointed. Don’t let other men or women of some church judge you, Jesus/Yashua says “come just as you are, any who believes on me and acknowledges my name before my Father is SAVED!(Paraphrased)
Go to the Word Of God read it yourself do not let others tell you what your God says ,see and ask and learn what YOUR GOD and His son JESUS said to do, to have Grace and Salvation.
He is our only hope and salvation and He is waiting for you to turn your life over to Him!
