Journey on the Roads Less Traveled
Journey on the Roads Less Traveled is a spiritual journey providing an avenue for people to change their lives through Jesus Christ in a way that is not commonly understood. The less traveled roads take the reader down a comprehensive and well-rounded foundational understanding into the biblical world of acceptance, beliefs, spirituality, feelings, marriage, children, family, forgiveness, temptation, faith, and finally prayer while applying the power of “real love” into all of the above elements. The book will challenge the reader to go a step further in their faith and beliefs by helping them to identify with all the aspects of their character, namely the spiritual element of who they are and can become. In her book, Angie Lewis offers the spiritual counsel we need to live at peace with ourselves, and have a closer relationship with God.
What is "real love"? It is something that comes from the Holy Spirit within us. It is the Holy spirit working through us. That is what "real love" is.
No one can truly forgive on their own, to forgive completely is giving up the control of unforgiveness (negative feelings) and allowing Christ to go to work in your life.
Are you having second thoughts about
that divorce? What do you think, is it easier to divorce and call it quits
or work on restoring marriage? Many couples believe divorce is the easier
way out, but is it? Do you think that part of the reason we end up
divorcing is because of an attitude problem. How is your attitude? What we
think and how we feel gives us justification for many of our actions, but
that does not make those actions right.
If we are afraid of handing our life
over to God then how on earth can we ever surrender ourselves to the
person we married? Divorce looks and feels like the right thing to do
because we didn’t ask God. If you’re not sure about a situation,
always get a second opinion; ask the Spirit of Christ within you. I
don’t think you will regret it.
Okay, so you’re getting married in
a few months, how prepared are you for marriage? There are many factors
about marriage you should ask yourself before diving in headfirst. Sit by
the edge of the pool with me for a moment and get your feet a little wet
first, then, if you’re ready to take the plunge then go ahead and dive
Most of you reading this article already know that
good deeds will not help you into heaven. I could help all of my neighbors
financially, and I could feed and clothe all of the hungry and poor in the
world, but that is not what God wants from me. What does God want from me?
God wants me to have faith! And the funny thing about that is, faith is a
gift from God.
God wants us to “believe” with all of our being
that Jesus is who He says He is, and then God will bless us with faith.
It’s not that God does not want us to do good deeds and help our
neighbors, friends, brothers and sisters in the Lord, but that is a given
of being a Christian. On the contrary, it is our Christian
responsibility to always do what is right. But first, to be responsible
stewards, we must believe in and love God with all of our heart,
mind, and soul.
Did you know that as a believer you have a duty to
“go” and preach to all nations about the awesome power of Jesus? There
are many different ways a Christian can evangelize. God has given us all
gifts to use for His purpose. Find your gift and use it to help
build up God’s earthly kingdom – the Kingdom of God.
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”.
The most important aspect of our Christian walk is
for us to realize, we are not the only Christian (family, individual)
working for Christ – it is not about us and what we do and what we
say – it is about Jesus and what He has done for
those people who have faith to believe in Him as their personal Savior.
If it was about the Christian then he or she would
have the authority to moderate others faith and tell them what to believe
and how to believe. But it is not about us!! It is about Jesus. It is
about building up God’s earthly kingdom and doing it in love. If we do
not encourage and love others then what kind of faith is that?
“Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of
Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in
stewards, that a man be found faithful. But with me it is a very small
thing that I should be judged of you, or of a man’s judgment: yea, I
judge not mine own self. For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not
hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the
Lord come who both will bring to light the hidden things of
darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts, and then
shall every man have praise of God”. (1 Corinthians 4:1-5)
Unfortunately, there will always be dissection within
God’s kingdom because personal opinions and judgments cloud love.
Where love is clouded boundaries are made segregating God’s
people from each other. Then…the self-righteous attitude gets in the way
of ever breaking that boundary and loving one another in the ways of the
Lord. Where kind of faith is that?
“Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you
not, that ye come together not for the better but for the worse. For first
of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be
divisions among you; and I partly believe it. For there also must be also
heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest
among you. (1 Corinthians 11:17-19)
Good deeds, gifts, abilities, and talents are of no
use to God unless done in love. Good Stewardship must make love its
foundation; otherwise we are only feeding our self and not God. But it
is not about us; it is about Jesus and what He has done for us. To
have love we first have to have faith to love. When Christians
finally have the faith to love that is when boundaries will be broken and
God’s love shine through in the Christian so that God’s kingdom can be
built up on love rather than selfish indignation.
“And though I have the gift of prophesy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all of my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing”. (1 Corinthians 13:2-3)
have the gift of prophesy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am
nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the
flames, but have not love, I gain nothing". (1 Corinthians 13:2,3 NIV)
