 Story…..I feel that I could jump on his lap!!

 I have a friend who said, I feel like I’m back to the way I was when I was first saved, that if I died, I could run up to the Lord and jump on his lap… Now there is a danger in what he was saying, I said if you didn’t feel so good with God would you run up and jump on his lap?

  • Where was his faith?

  • It wasn’t in Christ it was in his relationship with God, in other words his own righteousness, self righteous, religious… you might as well throw away Jesus!

They will probably venting sin everywhere, foundation of human is security, power, and purpose, earthquakes – coz these things a shaking in the subconscious level of their hearts.
