Methodists, Charismatics, or any other conservative, Nicene- derived Christian Church.

Christforums is:

.... an orthodox Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another forum.

Enjoy your fellowship

In order to understand the importance of Christian fellowship, we must first understand what Christian fellowship is and what it isn’t. The Greek words translated “fellowship” in the New Testament mean essentially a partnership to the mutual benefit of those involved. Christian fellowship, then, is the mutually beneficial relationship between Christians, who can’t have the identical relationship with those outside the faith. Those who believe the gospel are united in the Spirit through Christ to the Father, and that unity is the basis of fellowship. This relationship is described by Jesus in His high-priestly prayer for His followers in John 17:23. The importance of true Christian fellowship is that it reinforces Christ centeredness in our mind and helps us to focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us. As iron sharpens iron, in true Christian fellowship Christians sharpen one another's faith and stir one another to exercise that faith in love and good works, all to God’s glory.

My son's salvation

Recommended Posts

My son is 11 years old. We have bible study every night with his sister. I'm praying God will bring him to a saving knowledge of his son Jesus. My son's name is Jeremiah.

Hi brother, is there reason to doubt that he is already saved? I do love the idea of daily bible study, and I will pray for it to be successful in his spiritual growth.

He has never accepted Christ into his heart. We have talked about it.

I'll sure be praying for Jeremiah. Many times with young people there can be the rebellion of submitting to authority even if they do believe something. God bless you brother for your profession to your children in Jesus' name.

Be assured of my prayers for your son, asking the Lord to draw him close to Himself into a personal relationship with Himself. May God fill your home with His peace and comfort.

I have a special place in my prayer notes that offer up prayers for the unredeemed . I'm sure to include your son as well as many more God may bring to  a sovereign saving knowledge of Jesus in salvation .   M

It would seem from what you say that there is every likelihood that God intends to do just that, in your son's own good time. You may be thinking there is some urgency about what you want him to do, because you are concerned for his eternal welfare. That is adequately covered by God Himself, just trust that that is so and do not pressure Jeremiah to do anything other than be attentive to God's voice when the time comes. God has a covenant with you and that covenant contains the promise that your children will enter a covenant relationship with Him on the same terms you yourself did. Meanwhile Jeremiah is covered by God's with you. Jeremiah will eventually take responsibility for his own walk with God by faith in the Atoning Power of Jesus Christ His Son. It may take a lifetime for Jeremiah to fulfill his covenant responsibility and place his trust for salvation, in His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, rather than relying on his supposed, 'knowledge of good and evil', stolen illicitly in that 'garden', back in the ancient mists of time but God has it in hand nonetheless.

 

God is on your side. Love your son, as God loves you, and you and him cannot go wrong. Teach by love, example and regular discussion. Ps.119:27.
