I learned that Jesus Christ had died for my sins and was raised again so that I might experience God’s forgiveness and new life in Him. At that moment, I turned my life over to Christ. I prayed, “Lord Jesus, if You can change me, come into me and do it. I sure need to be changed."
Is this, then, what Jesus had in mind when He talked of an “abundant life”? No! But if people have never experienced anything different, they will accept their predicament as normal. They will assume “that’s just the way it is."
I knew the Bible frontward and backward, but that knowledge alone didn’t change my condition. In my experience, Jesus got lost in the Bible.
Lord, I don’t care what the organization that I used to be with taught me. I don’t care what the church I’m in or the denomination to which I belong has taught me. I want You to teach me afresh, all over again. I want to know the truth that You promised would set me free. I’m tired of listening to people. I’m ready to listen to You.
More than anything else, I wanted to know more fully the Person of Jesus Christ whom the Bible reveals. I thank God with all my heart that He led me to find what I was looking for—a return to Classic Christianity.
Christianity is not a religion; it’s a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ did not come just to get men out of hell and into heaven; He came to get Himself out of heaven and into men!
The issue in salvation is life and death. Jesus Christ, spiritually alive, laid down His life for us. Why? So that He could give His life to us!
Until you rest in the finality of the cross, you will never experience the reality of the resurrection.
There is only one way to determine your identity that cannot be shaken, one foundation that cannot be taken away from you: “I am a child of God.”
We don’t need a good self-image. We need a proper self-image—one that comes from God’s Word.
The most powerful, life-changing power in existence is the message of God’s unconditional love and acceptance in Jesus Christ.
God will never love or accept you one ounce less or one ounce more than He does right this minute. That’s a truth to build a life on!
The goal of the Christian life is not to stop sinning! It is to start trusting.
To be filled with the Spirit is to be totally filled with the knowledge of God’s love and grace in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ laid down His life for us, so that He could give His life to us, so that He could live His life through us! That’s the entire gospel in a nutshell.
We must first receive God’s unconditional love and acceptance for us before we will ever learn to love Him in return.
You may not know what will happen to you tomorrow, but you can know that the same Christ who loves you perfectly today is already there.
Listen, open the door of your heart, and discover that Classic Christianity is a Person—the living Lord Jesus Christ.
Classic Comments I was just religious

I was just religious

I am 73 years old, and accepted Christ into my life at the age of 6 years old. From that point I began a life of being in church every time...etc. I attended independent churches, Baptist churches, So. Bapt. church. I was just religious. They all told the same story of how salvation is free but discipleship will cost you something. My husband and I raised 7 children. Three of our sons are pastors, and preached the same things. Until God took them to the end of their own endeavors and they got hold of Classic Christianity. I believe that God has to reveal truth to each of us and usually it is when we are at the point of desperation. That is where I was. I went to a squeaky clean church,

and did all the things that I thought were making me a good Christian. But it was hollow and I began to see that there were numerous thoughts and actions that didn't match, and that I couldn't live up to the rules of the church, the Bible and even my own set of do's and dont's. One day in my living room, in desperation I said, "Lord, I cannot do it anymore! I can't live this life, I have tried, and I love you, but You will have to show me something else, because this can't be all there is...!" It is almost as if He said, "I thought you'd never ask." Someone gave me a book called Gracewalk. I picked it up again and began to read, asking the Lord to open my eyes to truth, to know Him and learn what He teaches. Then I read Classic Christianity. What wonderful things God showed me out of those books, and I read them right along with the Scriptures and He began to reveal truth to me. This happened to our four sons, my husband and I, around the same time. This was about 2004. I could never go back to where I was before. I must say it took a good while for Christ to de-program our minds and replace with truth that we could live by. My trust and faith, which is really His faith, given to me because our Spirits are one, is unshakeable no matter my circumstances, and I am secure in His deep unfathomable love. Our sons are preaching the truth of Grace, who is a person. And one of them leads our home group. Thank you so much for your testimony and ministry which is helping so many who are longing to know God.
