Tonight in the latest devotional we will discover what makes a Jesus Freak, a freak for Jesus.
Most people when hear they phrase or term Jesus freak most people would automatically assume that they are "Christian." But to determine what a Jesus freak is first at the word "Christian." and what it means to be a Christian. If we look up a passage in Acts more specifically Acts 19:26 it says, 19A)">(A)So then those who were scattered because of the persecution that occurred in connection with Stephen made their way to B)">(B)Phoenicia and C)">(C)Cyprus and D)">(D)Antioch, speaking the word to no one except to Jews alone.
23Then when he arrived and witnessed N)">(N)the grace of God, he rejoiced and began to encourage them all with resolute heart to remain true to the Lord;
25And he left for Q)">(Q)Tarsus to look for Saul;
26and when he had found him, he brought him to R)">(R)Antioch And for an entire year they met with the church and taught considerable numbers; and S)">(S)the disciples were first called T)">(T)Christians in U)">(U)Antioch.
Its hard to tell where Christians are now, its very difficult to determine who's Christian and whos not? Christianity has now become has a sub-culture.
Some people say anybody who believes in Jesus is Christian we now turn our attention to Mathew 7:12
1"A)">(A)Do not judge so that you will not be judged.
2"For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and B)">(B)by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.
3"Why do you C)">(C)look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?
4"D)">(D)Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and behold, the log is in your own eye?
5"You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.
6"E)">(E)Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
Prayer and the Golden Rule7"F)">(F)Ask, and G)">(G)it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
8"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
9"Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone?
10"Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he?
11"If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, H)">(H)how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!
