I have been having a great time listening to Beth Moore online at oneplace.com. I tell you, if God ever lifts His ban on women preachers (and He won't) I want to be one! I used to want to be a singer like Sandi Patti when I grew up and now I want to be a teacher like Beth Moore;) But I'll need to work on my Texan accent. Hey, how come it is that a lot of women preachers have real thick southern accents?
All kidding aside, I have been enormously blessed over the past two days by Beth, and Chuck Swindoll and Voddie Baucham and Michael Pearl.
Here are some of the things I have gleaned:
1. God can and does cleanse us from all our filthiness. And we are all filthy, even us "good" ones.
2. When God saved you, He forgave all your sins, past, present and future. I knew this, of course, but its always good to remember it. It is also necessary to understand the even though ALL your sins have been (past tense) forgiven, you have no license to sin. We have been Born Again, we are dead to sin.
3.Children are a blessing, a gift from God. We should not view them as simply a drain on our resources.
4. We should never ridicule anyone whom God has blessed with many children.
5.It is the father's responsability to Win his kids for Christ and desciple them.
Grace and peace from God our Father!
