“To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to see Him is the greatest adventure; to find Him the greatest human achievement.”
Wow! How beautiful! Can you believe those words were said by St. Augustine of Hippo, who lived from 354 until 430? Yes, such wisdom has been around for that long. Yet, here we are in 2023, and look at the world around us. It seems that the majority of the world has NOT fallen in love with God, nor do they try to SEE Him, which, of course, means they won’t find Him. And even if, perchance, they should hear about Him during the course of their lives, many reject Him rather than strive to OBTAIN what St. Augustine says is possible for us. Hmmm… it makes you wonder if humanity has progressed spiritually AT ALL or if spiritual awareness is on the decline.
Hello, and thank you for tuning in today. This is Celine Nice speaking to you on behalf of the Ladies of Living Grace Foursquare Church located in North Las Vegas, NV. My hope and prayer for you today is that after watching this video, you will be able to know if your soul is truly in sync with our Jesus.
Now I need to tell you these truths are not new; in fact, many of us have heard them before from great evangelicals like Dr. Billy Graham and Dr. Charles Stanley. So, for many, this video may be a reminder of those truths. But whether you’re hearing these for the first time or as a review, this message will inspire you. So, let’s dive in.
How do I know if my soul is truly “in sync” with my Jesus? I’m gonna present actionable behaviors, nine of them, to help you remove any doubt that you are in sync with Him, for it is only when we’re in sync with God that we will be living out the plan He had predestined for us. Many of you know that I have a love for music, so I’ve also identified and included some hymns and songs of praise that will help you meditate on these precepts.
#1 – First and foremost, we must be born again. In John 3:3, Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”(NLT) (Song – Softly and Tenderly)
#2 – Pray – Luke 6:12 says that “One day afterward Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and he prayed to God all night.” (NLT) I Thess. 5:17 says to “Pray without ceasing.” (KJV) (Song – Whisper a Prayer)
#3 – Listen to God – Matt. 17:5 “But even as he spoke, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy. Listen to him.” In this passage, God the Father is giving us a command, He’s saying listen to Jesus! (Song – We Must Not Forget God’s Word)
#4 – Believe God – John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (Song – Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ)
#5 – Obey God – In John 8:12 “Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (Song – Follow I will Follow Thee/Trust and Obey)
#6 – Love Him – Mark 12:30 says, “And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength.” – (Song – I Love you, Lord)
#7 – Share him – In Matt. 28:19, Jesus said, “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nation, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” This doesn’t mean you have to be a missionary to Myanmar or China. No, start in your own home and with your own family. (Song – Go Tell it On the Mountain)
#8 – Serve him – In John 12:26, Jesus says, “Anyone who wants to be my disciple must follow me, because my servants must be where I am. And the Father will honor anyone who serves me.” (Song – I Will Serve Thee)
#9 – Suffer for Him – In Phil. 1:29, Paul writes, “For you have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ but also the privilege of suffering for him.” (Song – Precious Lord, Take My Hand)
So, if you want to know if your soul is in sync with Jesus, follow and do these nine behaviors, and you will have a peace in your life that surpasses all human understanding. Your relationships will flourish, and you will enjoy a higher quality of life, such that you have never known before.
And if you’re watching this video, but have not been born again. In other words you have never invited Jesus into your heart, confessed your sins and asked him to be your Lord and Savior, then do it now! As long as you have breath in your lungs, it’s not too late.
Let us Pray: Dear Heavenly Father,
Please bless every soul that is watching. Work in their hearts and minds so that they will know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that their actions, words, and behaviors are in sync with your Word and your divine plan for their lives. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
Arise and Health and Multiply in Wholeness! Thank you for watching, have a blessed day, and see you next time. God bless.
