When you become a Christian, then the old you passes away and
you are a new creation. Yes?
God will let you live just about the same way for a
while, then he will start showing you how to be better. Always showing you ways
to improve. Yes?
And when you see the hypocrisy of your old life, in the
light of your new, Its a new level of understanding and standards. Yes?
Then how is it that we have so many Christians claiming
to follow Jesus yet they live their lives comforted by false doctrines and
blindly following wolves in sheep's clothing.
We need to pray for the Body of Christ. we are to be
his hands and feet, yet so many of us are going with the flow. We need a
revival! Amen?! Amen~
;) I thought of another way
of expressing what is on my heart:) ill try and type it best i can. I sparred
some of the students tonight and I caught an elbow with my pinky
knuckle..OUCH*IE:) hahahaok, so just about everyone knows about the belt ranking
system;) we dont use one, we have our own system, its called when u get there
youll know (well, we have one, we just dont make a big deal to the students
about it;) Belts lead to pride and pride leads to bragging;)
White belts are new Christians. Fresh in the faith!
Praise the LORD!! WooOOHoooO! Happy Birthday little sissy & bro!LOVE YA! =)
Next is Yellow belts~This is the group who knows the
basics of Sunday school,and they are reading thru the Bible, learning ALL the
Chosen ppl, and battles :) for now its enough to process.
Then they mature into green! (my fav color btw;)
Greenies start to question parts of the Bible. Where was God before he created
the Earth, Why did the Israelite s FORGET so OFTEN! At this point, you are
learning So much and putting the knowledge out there for discussion. Hopefully
you have someone Higher in the belt system to talk to, a mentor. But even if
you do, your BIGGEST sensei should be the Holy Spirit.
Brown is a rank you get after many trials and tears. I
like to think of it as muddy;) This is a season in your life when all the
Sunday school lessons, daily devotionals and memory verses are put to the test,
thru you. The Devil will try and make you question everything. This is when you
find out if you have a religion, or a relationship with the Living God.
Then theres a black belt. Black Belt Christians still
face hard times! This is the time when you will have to stand and fight. hold
fast to Jesus's teachings. The world will hate you, but we are to expect that.
It hated Him first. This is a time when the Lord will speak to you in every
thing you do. The holy Spirit will tug on your hearts strings and let you know
when you are straying off the path. If you lean away, you may very well slip into
a rut. Black Belt Christians are teachers. Able to lead others, to sooth the
younger ones with out watering down the Gospel. a baby cant grow on watered
Hebrews 5: 11 We have much to say about this, but it is
hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 12 In
fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach
you the elementary truths of God’s word ALL OVER again. You need MILK, not
solid food! 13Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not
acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14But solid food is for the
mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from
I know its a little silly to put it this way. My brain
is still in the gym. My hand hurts too:)
But i just now became aware of the levels, and it was
either try and explain them like this, or go with Donkey Kong;) hahahahahaLove ya'll!=)
