Disadvantages In Being A Christian

Today’s Verse: “And He was saying to them all, ‘If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me'” (Luke 9:23 NAU)
If a salesman spent time talking about the disadvantages in buying a new car, he wouldn’t be employed long. When we think about the advantages of being a Christian, we must remember Jesus said we must count the cost.


Advantages of Being A Christian

Today’s Verse “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10 NASU).
I certainly don’t want to sound like a pushy car salesman (apologies to all the fine salesmen), but there are advantages in being a Christian. Having advantages is not a bad thing. Paul informed the rich to use their advantages by helping the less fortunate (1 Tim. 6:17-18).
You don’t have to be rich to have special advantages. Christians, rich or poor, have many priceless advantages.


Is God Your Father

Today’s Verse: “For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother” (Matt 12:50 NASU).
Have you given much thought that, in a very special sense, the Christian has God as His Father? I understand that there are those who acknowledge the Christian God as Father before they become Christians. I know. I was one of them. I remember praying the Lord’s Prayer every night for years without realizing that I was not a child of God. I had not repented and been baptized (Acts 2:38).
