CR Testimony–2013-04-26

I’ve attached the seven (7) page testimony that I shared this past Friday at Celebrate Recovery (CR). It’s a bit of what PAPA has done in my life & took me approximately 22 minutes to read aloud. You can probably read it faster than that, though!

PAPA’S Blessings on you & all of yours, Dear Readers!

I am thinking and/or acting like a Pharisee if . . .

PAPA,

I’ve been pondering for some time on what a Pharisee really is & I just finished reading the last half of Matthew 22. These are some of my thoughts . . .

____________

I am thinking and/or acting like a Pharisee if . . .

1. I don’t think I need JESUS in every area of my life.

2. I believe I can work my way into right standing with GOD.

3. I tithe “perfectly,” but do not give generously or self-sacrificially or with a joyful heart.

4. I recognize other people’s sins, but not my own sin.

5. I recognize my own sin, but think other people’s sins are worse or bigger.

6. I refuse to humble myself before The LORD; meaning, I refuse to admit I am sick & in desperate need of Him–every moment of every day.

7. I realize I’m sick, but think I’m not as sick as other people.

8. I focus on “image-management,” rather than loving The LORD with all my heart, soul, mind, & strength.

 9. I focus on “not getting dirty,” rather than going into the trenches & loving others as I love myself.

10. I look for “loopholes” (or an “easier, softer way”), rather than obeying KING JESUS.

11. I attempt to find flaws in JESUS’ Character.

12. I think, speak, & act in such a way that communicates I believe that I don’t desperately need daily intimacy with KING JESUS–that’s just for “weak”people.

13. I place obstacles in front of others who are seeking JESUS.

14. I call good, evil, and evil, good.

15. I want JESUS & His Word (both past Written & current Verbal) to “go away” & leave me alone with my sin.

____________

Well, PAPA, I am sometimes thinking, talking, &/or behaving like a Pharisee–ouch!

I’m sorry for the times I’ve thought, talked, & behaved like a Pharisee. Please forgive me. Thank You for Forgiving me! And thank You for doing whatever it takes to soften my heart towards You, Your Word, & Your Will in every area of my life–no matter what it takes!

I love you, PAPA!!! Thank You for Loving me FIRST!!!

And Readers, thank YOU for reading & letting me share!

Warrior Princess Melanee!
