These stand for Prayer, Action, Word (Bible) and Spirit (Holy). I believe these four are the basic ingredients of our Christian life. How did I arrive with this ? I was looking at my books written by various Christian authors and I look at my Christian life for over 30 years and just recently I fully realized the need for every Christian on the Holy Spirit.
Let me offer a simple explanation on these four basic ingredients. Prayer is needed because it is our communication with God. I learned that prayer does not change God but it changes us. Action is needed because that represents our obedience to God. The Word or the Bible presents us with the written Word of God. The Holy Spirit teaches us, intercedes for us, help us, empower us, warn us, guide us.
Faith, service, love, repentance,character I believe are included in these four.These four ingredients need to be present in our daily Christian life. Perhaps this could still be modified or refined. Let me know your comments.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned,but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogantor rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.For we know in part and we prophesy in part,but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
According to the words of out Lord, love is the most important; and because Christ laid down His life for us all who accept Him in our heart while becoming the only true church as His body following only our Head Jesus Christ -- and because God is love who is the Head of Christ, the only way to know God in spirit and truth is to love others as we love ourselves. Yet this man and all believers have been spiritually murdering me for years while claiming love and salvation -- but until icy hearts repent salvation is only salvation without becoming eternal salvation until Christ has been obeyed as written in Hebrews 5:9 -- yet ped has been tearing me down for years by offering zero help and only wanting to know if I have been saved. Here I have over two decades with our Lord while looking only to the Father with now eleven wensites, a published book and a half million views of what I write while looking to the Father just as Christ in John 8:28b-29 -- and ped speaks of love while being exactly who our Lord speaks of in 1 John 3:14-17 meaning they have no love as written on these words. . . "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:7-8
So why have a world of brothers and sisters never offered me any help at all? Just one jar of skippy peanut butter would make me happy -- but instead all I ever get is hate with scorn and judgment against me. Thank you all so much!
When our life comes down to trusting in only God just as our Lord who we seek and follow, even when our cooking gas runs out, we but our cats fish on credit, we eat just rice with lucky noodles along with owes at all the little stores -- we just keep our faith because we know that there is nothing more important. Your help as just food to eat would greatly help us -- and God will be pleased because you actually chose His words rather than scorn with hate towards me just as I have been getting from brothers and sisters for years now.
My wife and I prayed strongly to our Father through our Lord this morning, than things just seemed to worsen, yet we have just learned to live and accept because our hearts belong to only our Father through our Lord -- and now after 12 noon, I read your words. God is always there and does work in mysterious ways for those who keep their faith.
We are very hungry my friend because you are showing kindness.
Last year because of my first and only good job in six years, I had to open a BPI with account number #9389097699
What is best, fastest and easy so we can eat is any help through western union.
I just read this comment of yours and I will see what I can do. You sent me another comment on another blog which confused me and prompted me to answer in a different manner. We could have dealt with this in private but something prevented me which I believe you knew why.
May we know the truth and that the truth will set us free.
