<![CDATA[The G.O.D Blog: Grace Overcomes Destruction - Weekly Question]]>Sat, 27 Feb 2016 19:35:05 -0800Weebly<![CDATA[Where do we fit in as Christians with social injustices?]]>Tue, 26 Jan 2016 21:50:57 GMThttp://graceovercomesdestruction.weebly.com/weekly-question/where-do-we-fit-in-as-christians-with-social-injustices
Frequently, I find myself pondering where I fit in when it comes to social injustices and being a follower of Christ. Think about what we may consider an injustice up against what the Bible would consider immoral. I would like to hear what spaces you feel God would have a Christian in to help in societal corruption, or if you think that believers have a place at all. Happy pondering! God bless! Shalom!

Somehow over years, each of us has developed a "routine." Whether it is eating breakfast before we shower, or picking out our clothes to wear for the next day. But somewhere in there we forget to sit down, and read our word. I know, "The King James Version is hard to understand," or "I don't really have time to read the  bible, I go to church," and my all time favorite "God knows my heart." You're right, He does know your heart...But do you know His? I've used some of these same excuses. And then they started to make no sense to me. We get comfortable with a routine of telling God we love Him, but not reading the love letter He left for us... The bible. So my question to you is, How in fact do we ACCEPT God's word?

<![CDATA[What does it take to be a DISCIPLE for God?]]>Tue, 05 Aug 2014 03:09:15 GMThttp://graceovercomesdestruction.weebly.com/weekly-question/what-does-it-take-to-be-a-disciple-for-god

Often times in conversations about the gospel I'll speak about being a "lackluster Christian." Now, do not take that out of context. That was just my expression for how I was sitting on my calling in order to just merely "look" like I was saved. I sang in the choir, praise danced, and even paid my tithes and offering faithfully. But, that was not enough. "You'll find me when you seek me with all of your heart," were the words I read in Jeremiah 29:13. I looked at that page for awhile trying to figure out what all of my heart meant... AND if I was able to hand over that much of myself. That is when I realized I wanted to be a DISCIPLE. I decided to commit myself to the man who so boldly asked for my entire heart and commitment through that scripture. I wanted to pray dangerous prayers, have unwavering faith, and live in the supernatural. Thus, I decided to live unafraid, and bear my cross. What is a DISCIPLE to you?  How do you become a DISCIPLE for Christ? Is there a difference between a Christian and a DISCIPLE?

<![CDATA[Do you feel as though going to church is necessary?]]>Mon, 07 Jul 2014 17:28:33 GMThttp://graceovercomesdestruction.weebly.com/weekly-question/do-you-feel-as-though-going-to-church-is-necessary
We live in such a "digital age," and so everything is at the very tips of our fingers...even the church. Everything from our bible, bible study, devotionals, and even preached messages are accessible from our smart phone home screen. Streaming a service from the comfort of your queen size bed has become a normality. Sometimes if you oversleep service you can watch the recorded version, and skip right over praise and worship. Many churches even allow their members to mail in their tithes and offering. Churches are trying to stay relevant in an ever progressing society. So, how do you feel? Is Sunday morning service a necessity?

Often times there are  stereotypes that plague the minds of those who do not quite know what a "believer" is. They are called the "bible thumpers," "holier-than-thou," and often times even "hypocrites" among many other names. We would like to hear from you! Comment below where it says "Add Comment" and let us know what it means to be a "believer" to you. Include your thoughts and how you feel about skewed opinions you've come in contact with.
