Are you submitting to God? I will pause for answers! Awesome I am sure all of you just lied. Okay, do not get mad I am just joking. Why Submit to God? Why submit to anything? We are free spirited people with all of our own ideas and plans!! Why should I stop and think what God or anyone else thinks? I will do whatever I want. Because God made me this way and it is my life.
If you AMENED me during my outrage, you are in need of THE SAVIOR. IF you said that is not what I think, Because I know that there is a GOD and I know He sent His Son. I have trusted in Him I believe in the resurrection of Jesus. I believe He died, so that, I can have life. I have ask Him into my heart and the Holy Spirit cleans my life and I AM SEALED. If I just described you then guess what??? Your are Saved and Sealed to the day of Redemption. Now for the point of this BLOG, Why is it so easy to say "I COMMIT TO GOD" but we live life like God is just something that we do on Sunday. Many of us do not trust God with our lives we only trust with our mouths. We are standing on Sunday morning and worshiping God, but then on Monday we live our lives like HE IS NOT THERE!!!! As you look at the computer Screen right now I want you to say this phrase "I AM NASTY, GROSS, AND DISGUSTING, I AM DEFILING WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CHRISTIAN, I LIE TO GOD EVERY SUNDAY." Wow, Kris pretty strong words!!! Thank you! When you live life like there is no God everyday until Sunday when you drag yourself to church to worship a Holy God, and when the convicting power of the Holy Spirit tries to take over you Kick Him to the curb and tell Him, "your only my God on Sunday." Then, You are nasty to our Holy God. "Christian" please listen to my Call. We need Revival. No just in our "World" but in our Church. For your neighbors sake please stop living life like you have no Savior. Philippians 1:27-30 Paul writes,

27 Just one thing: live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or am absent, I will hear about you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, working side by side for the faith of the gospel, 28 not being frightened in any way by your opponents. This is evidence of their destruction, but of your deliverance —and this is from God. 29 For it has been given to you on Christ's behalf not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for Him, 30 having the same struggle that you saw I had and now hear about me.

Now as you read that passage my question is: Are you living a life worthy of the Gospel of Christ? Take a look at the word gospel for a second. What is the Gospel? It is the account of Jesus' life from the Virgin Birth to when Jesus ascended to Heaven to be on the right side of the Father. Okay, so how can we ever be worthy of that Gospel? Well, we cannot. That is easy enough since we all fall short of His glory lets just stop trying!!! I hope you yelled "that is absurd." Because it is. But that is what we do. We forget that we are to strive to perfection not just ask God for the get out of HELL card, so we can live like we deserve the punishment, in which He has delivered us from.

Now lets pause...........Shake your heads a little get ready for the next part!!!! SUBMISSION! My favorite sport when I was growing up was Wrestling. Not the Olympics, that stuff looks fake, but the real deal WCW-WWF-WWE. That is what I am talking about. I know all of the Real Wrestling haters are mad at me now and I am sorry. Anyways my favorite Wrestler is Sting. He does the Stinger Splash, the Scorpion Death Drop and the Scorpion Death Lock. Now lets take a minute to talk about the Death Lock! It is a submission move. The point of the move was to get his opponent to basically tap out or submit that Sting Wins.

If you are a Christian, then you should have already Submitted to the KING of KINGS and and Lord of Lords. Because salvation comes through Submitting to Him as master. However some of us after our love to the father wore off a little we got back up and hit Him with a Chair. Wrestling also has a lot of deception. We try to deceive God, who knows everything and we deceive others into thinking that we have total submitted, but you know that God is not your only master. Submitting to God is essential for your life. God wants to lead, guide and direct you! The last couple of weeks I have decide that it is about time to totally give God the control in my Life. I do not have a clue what He is about to do, but Jessi and I know that Christ is about to be unleashed in our lives and He is going to blow our minds. The book Crazy Love has changed our lives. Do you know that we serve a big God who wants to eliminate the places in our lives that we have not Submitted to Him? Right now take time to Search for these places. It could be Time, Money, Trust, or any number of things. Submit to Him and be willing to Suffer for Him. NOW Go and Sin No More!!!!! Matthew 28:18-20

Because of Him,

Why do I even try?????

Have you ever tried to be bigger than God? Before you fly off the handle and yell NO!!! at the computer screen just STOP lying. Because your not perfect. Think about it. Sometimes we take all of our problems on and never think about God. This week I figured somethings out. We rely on stress and worry and not God.
First, lets talk a little about the STRESS factor. Thanks to Francis Chan's book Crazy Love, God's convicting power has rocked my world this week. "Stress says that the things we are involved in are important enough to merit our impatience, our lack of grace toward others, or out tight grip of control." Is impatience your best-worst quality? It is mine. I cannot wait to finish this blog because I am I need to proof read it. See what I mean. I want everything I do in my timing not in God's. I know what you are thinking, "Kris how can you say that." I might of said it, but your actions show that you are the exact same way. Do you not think it is funny that we are guilty of over half of the things we judge others for. Now I know what you are thinking "Kris you Judge others" see what I mean you are doing it again. I was watching the biggest loser the other day, they was playing a game and if they lose then they had to eat high calorie food. As they ate the cookies, doughnut, peanut butter and Jelly, apple pies, and bagels, I was saying "that is nasty." When I have easily ate that many calories before and loved it. I blows my stinking mind that when we see others sin it is easy to judge, but we are blinded my our own excuses. Now back to stress, it is a SIN. In my life and yours. I am a sinner. Thank God for His grace. You can ask Jessi, this last 2 or 3 weeks I have stressed so much I have made myself sick literally with Stress and worry. God has brought me to my knees begging for forgiveness.

Worry is another of my many sins and another way I do not trust God. Stress and Worry go hand in hand. Chan wrote, "worry implies that we don't quite trust that God is big enough, Powerful enough, or loving enough to take care of what's happening in our lives." This basically speaks for it's self.

HOW BIG IS GOD?? Well, guess what? He is bigger than you let Him be! God is not limited by your faith in the world. However, your lack of faith limits you from showing God that He is your World. I will end this Blog with some encouraging words that my wife tells me, when I stress and worry. JUST STOP IT.

Because of Him,

BTW, I am sorry about not blogging lately. I was not trusting in God's power and I was to stressed and worried. SEE I AM A SINNER!!
