Christians United and on Our Part

If God is for Us Who Can Stand Against Us

Welcome to our Christianity Oasis Tell Me the Story of Jesus study program. This is our thought provoking and quite interesting ... Christians United trek for truth seeking the true meaning of the Bible passage which asks, If God is for us who can stand against us as well as the definition of the Biblical phrase, For he that is not against us is on our part. The truth extracted from the extremely exciting and faith increasing message within this who can stand against us when they are on our part Bible study will enhance your be-YOU-tiful Christian walk. Let's look into this together.

Start our Tell Me the Story of Jesus
Bible Study from the beginning:

After our last Tell Me the Story of Jesus story, hopefully you've come to understand the truth of that matter. No matter how old you are, you are a child of God. Children of the Lord aren't only a group of elementary Sunday school kids are they?! So, boys and girls, shall we continue with the story of Jesus?

In this Christians United journey, we will be delving into the excellent question, If God is for us who can stand against us. We have a smorgasbord of different things to share. After Jesus told the Apostles that you must be as a child to enter Heaven and that the least would be the greatest, John spoke up and told Jesus, Master, we saw someone casting out devils in your name and we stopped him because he doesn't follow us. Jesus said, Don't forbid him. There isn't a man that will do a miracle in my name who can easily speak evil about me. Whoever isn't against us, is for us.

Let's stop and discuss this Christians United meaning of the Biblical statement that if God is for us who can stand against us for a moment. Whoever is not against us is for us and on our part? Let's get the Spiritual essence of that Truth.

Let's compare this to the world today. We have Christians of all kinds. Many different denominations are Christians. Some go to church, others don't. Some are evangelists who have huge ministries. Some are quiet folks who aren't outgoing, but are private people who love the Lord. Some are Mother Theresa types, missionaries, ministers, nuns, monks, and on and on and on.

Some are charismatic, some pray silently. We're on the same team. We cheer one another on. If you're on the other side, you may see us fall sometimes, but only a worm is free from the worry of stumble. If we fall, we get back up. Sometimes one of our teammates gives us a hand.

Who Can Stand Against Us Point of Interest ... There are a lot of people who are skeptical about Christianity. They think that Christians are saying that if you become a Christian, your life will be perfect. There isn't a Christian that ever lived that can claim such a thing. Did you read the last paragraph? We fall! We get up. Now, here's the clincher. When we acknowledge our sin (fall) to God and don't hide it - and when we confess it to the Lord, we're forgiven! Only one string attached ... We must be sorry. That comes from a Psalm of David by the way, Psalms 32:5.

Now we've gotten off the beaten Christians United voyage into the meaning of if God is for us who can stand against us path just a little, so let's get back to this "Whoever is not against us is for us is on our part" stuff. Do you think it matters to Jesus if you go to this Christian church or that one, or if passing along inspirational writings through e-mail is church to you, if you sing loudly or softly or off key from the hymnal or if you put on your headphones and whistle along to a modern Christian tune.

It doesn't matter what your, Who Can Stand Against Us recipe is for casting out devils, or anything else you do from the goodness of your heart is, as long as you do it in Jesus' name, you've got the key ingredient and that's what counts. That puts you on the "for us" side! The last thing Jesus wanted ... Was for His team to have competition among themselves. Division ... We're all on the same Christians United team, so let's work together!

Jesus said, Woe to the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! What does that mean? It means sorrow will come to the world because of harmful events, and that bad things will happen, but the man who causes those events will have the worst sorrow of all.

Whew! Time for a little who can stand against us who is on our part field trip ... It's a good thing that Jesus spoke in parables, isn't it?! We learned about this in an earlier story, remember? Of course He doesn't want us to cut off our hands or feet, but to cut off the evil that causes them to perform mischief. He was thinking of His Father's children when He said this.

Remember, the children of the Lord that we've been talking about? In other words, we are all His little children and whoever harms any of us in any way is in deep trouble. I'd call a millstone around someone's neck and thrown into the bottom of the sea ... Deep trouble.

Jesus emphasized a number of times that those who offend His children will end up where the fire is never quenched and the worm never dies. That's a pretty gruesome picture that Jesus painted. Then He said a very interesting thing for those of you who have always wondered about whether Angels are real or not.

Jesus said, (concerning God's children) Be careful that you never harm one of these little ones, because I tell you, that in Heaven their Angels always look upon the face of my Father. So, that not only clarifies that there are Angels. but that each of us has an Angel. which are known as Guardian Angels. God does Love His children and He gave us Angels to protect us because we're so precious to Him.

Well, now you've got another identity to add to your persona ... Christians United team player! Don't forget, even though we may have to wear many hats as a Christian, that each of us has a specific purpose that God intended for us, and no matter what that purpose is, without that one part, the team will suffer. Just like a missing ingredient in a recipe. The ingredient alone may be disgusting to you ... But, when added to the entire recipe ... It becomes perfect.

Here is a lil Who Can Stand Against Us tidbit of Truth ... Fear not what some other Christian is doing and how they are doing it. If God is for us who can stand against us. For he who is not against us is on our part as one member of the complete Body of Christ. This Christian may just have a different administration, yet called by the same God. Let God judge as He knows the heart of man. Because the odd man (or woman) out, could be you that is being whispered against.

Glad you're part of the team! Always remember ... Whoever is not against us is for us and that means they are on our part (side). Who can stand against us? Nobody but ourselves. That is because when you have Christians united ... They will never be divided.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
