Focus

Life sure has a lot to it doesn't it??? So many things that call our attention. Bible says to *be still and know I AM God* There is so much emphasis on how we think, the renewal of our mind. Praying without ceasing. I think females have an easier time with focus, after all males are supposed to think about sex every 8 seconds or so LOL

Jesus fulfilled the Law and gives us access to God directly. He died for us while we were yet sinners. He turned all over to disobedience so that He might have mercy on ALL. Romans 11 there. Why is it calvinists/reformed believe that there are a special electthat are the only ones who Jesus saved??? This will be discussed ad nauseum i'm sure but i still cringe to think a God who defines Himself as love would create a humaity who would end up mostly all being banished from Him to suffer in eternal flame??? A lil schizophrenic there imho.

Does Jesus need anything from us to save us??? Doesn't repentance come AFTER we realize what He has done??? Even so we all still sin so??? Does Jesus require our obedient performance in order to save us??? Take a peek at Kingdom Grace for a post exploring this. What do you think though??

If we performed obediently...we wouldn't require saving ;P

You ask a thought-provoking question though, Does Jesus need anything from us to save us? ...Well, what does the Word say?
Mark 16:16 John 1:12 John 3:15 John 3:36 John 5:24 John 6:40
The primary need from us that Jesus requires is that we believe.
Beyond that, we engage in a deepening relationship with Him and in doing so, we become more like Him, reflecting Him to others so that they will believe...What we do does not save us, it is what we believe.
That is my 2cents ;)

Howdy

I am new to this spot. Loads of individuals have added so many good things here. I would also like to add up some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you wish to know how to lose 10 lb in a week, you are likely not looking for a common diet and exercise plan. You can lose weight with a regular diet and workout plan, However this requires a lot of time doing utmost cardio works out and sticking with a strict diet. Here I will outline the right steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a workweek.

1. Stay away from all fried foods for the week
2. Drink In an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast every day. (this speeds up your metabolism)
3. Eat Up fair portions (stop taking when you are full)
4. Rather than eating 3 big a meals a day, eat 5-6 smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod eating after 9 P.M.. Its good to eat before 9 P.M. so that our body gets proper time to burn calories before sleep.
6. Have a proper sleep everyday. Not getting enough rest causes been proven to be a major factor to the body putting up excess fat.
7. Utilize a body/colon cleanse for the 7 days. This will get rid of excessive fat stored close to the stomach area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that makes you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I suggest you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is tested to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those man's/womans who want to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic drink.
