How you can become someone God can use
October 12, 2012
“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.’”
I think one of the greatest victories Satan has accomplished in our culture today is not the conversion of so many to atheism or agnosticism, but the dumbing down of the Gospel message to a feel-good religion. In his book, Early Christians of the Twenty-first Century, Chad Walsh wrote,
“Millions of Christians live in a sentimental haze of vague piety, with soft organ music trembling in the lovely light from the stained glass windows. Their religion is a thing of pleasant emotional quivers divorced from the intellect, divorced from the will, and demanding little except lip service to a few harmless platitudes.
“I suspect that Satan has called off the attempt to convert people to agnosticism.... It is much safer from Satan's point of view to vaccinate a man with a case of mild Christianity so as to protect him from the real thing.”
The problem that we have today is that so many who call themselves Christians haven’t woken up to the war. They’re so spiritually mellowed-out and lukewarm that they’ve essentially become useless!
The church today must be on the attack. Don’t let “vague piety” become your spiritual life. Stay focused on making Jesus the Lord of your life every day and you’ll become someone God can really use!
LET GOD USE YOU BY ABANDONING PETTY RELIGION AND MAKING JESUS LORD OF YOUR LIFE!

Become the man God desires!
You might think Jesus’ disciples were so extraordinary that you can’t possibly relate to them today.
But the truth is Jesus chose ordinary men to be His disciples and change the world—proof that He uses ordinary guys to do extraordinary things!
That’s why I want to send you two powerful resources today to help you or the man in your life become the man God desires: my 8-CD series called Why Believe – The 12, and my book, Man of God: Study Guide Edition.
In Why Believe – The 12, I give you inspiration—and words of warning—from the lives and beliefs of the disciples to help you live every day with significance and purpose.
And in Man of God: Study Guide Edition, you’ll come to understand the four vital areas of a man’s life that make him who he is!
These two resources are my gift to thank youfor your donation to help PowerPoint Ministries continue proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, so please request yours when you give today!
