Old Habits Die Hard

When we come to Christ, some of our longstanding “bad and destructive” habits instantly disappear and we say, “I used to smoke cigarette and right after I invited Jesus Christ into my life, my desire to smoke cigarette totally disappeared. I even tried to smoke but it didn’t feel the same. I hated it. So, from that day on, I quit smoking.”

Don’t you love hearing this kind of testimony? I do! Continue reading Old Habits Die Hard

Shake the Dust off Your Feet

A4P Guest: Hi Missy, I love listening to your video messages and reading your blogs. You have no idea how God has been ministering to me through your channel. May God bless you! I always pray for you and Appeal for Purity. I have one question though. So, I have one small Bible study group that I go to every week and I encourage all my Bible study group members to watch your videos and read your posts but some of them are totally against your messages. They think that your message is not good for born again Christians. None of the men in my Bible study ever watched any of your videos. And every time I bring up a topic you addressed in one of your videos or blogs, they get irritated. I am not sure how to encourage them to embrace Appeal for Purity. What do you advise me?

Your Wife LEGALLY

A4P Guest: I lived outside of Ethiopia since 2000. Last time I went back home was in 2011. I met this amazing girl at that time and fell in love with her instantly. We couldn’t spend much time together since I had to come back in short period of time. Before I went for vacation, I told my friends that I was going to meet my future wife and told them that I wouldn’t touch her except shaking her hands and that was exactly what I did. It’s been more than three years now and we are still together. We are actually more in love now than back then. I’m planning to bring her down here anytime soon. My eyes are dying to see her. I missed her so much. My question is when she arrives here, she only has me. I don’t want to sin against God and I’m a bit worried. I don’t even know if I can kiss her before we get married. I’ve already made my mind to propose to her. I just want to know if we can start kissing after I propose to her. What do you think about that?

A Person Who Has Wandering Eyes

The word of God commands us to love God and our neighbor (Matthew 22:36-40).
 
Why?
 
We are originally created for love. All our body organs work perfectly in love. We enjoy life when we live in love. Not loving God and others is the shortest and easiest way to make our life miserable. And guess what? Our vital organs, primarily our hearts and kidneys, work efficiently when we love God and others. Our body parts are perfectly compatible with love, and incompatible with hate.
