Every single one of us who have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as our PERSONAL saviour has two stories to tell:
1. What our lives were like before
2. What our lives are like how.
There are tangible changes that we and other people can identify with, we are different:
2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Some people came from what some may call very destructive lifestyle, so they were into drugs, alcohol, wild parties, basically fast living. Then there are others who came from more calmer backgrounds, so they may not have lived that wild lifestyles but they may have told the odd lie here are there or had resentment against someone, been a gossipers maybe a little dishonest with money, etc.
However in God’s eyes both of those lifestyles were very destructive and were leading to death and this is why he came to save us from sin and from ourselves.
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
So when we recognised that he paid a price for our sins, which we could not afford, the result of that should be praise and worship.
King David, after he had been discovered as having a man killed so he should take his wife, was so broken and repentant about his lifestyle that he cried to God to “ Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit in me”. He was basically asking to be BORN AGAIN.
He then went on to say:
Psa 51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Psa 51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Psa 51:13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
He was basically going on to say, if you forgive me, my lifestyle will reflect my confession and people that don’t know you will be attracted to you.
He was describing the life that every believer should be living.
David as a result of his repentance wrote some amazing psalms of praise to the Lord.
Our praise should be natural, based out of a relationship with God, not out of following a religious system. We should love God for who he is not just for what he does.
Unfortunately a lot of times our praise is re-active instead of pro-active, in other words we praise because he did this or he did that. However if we would just praise God for being God, he would do those things anyway.
Many times the things that we pray about over and over again, if we would just pray for them once and then get into the area of praise and worship and thanking God for answered prayer, through faith, we would see a lot more results.
Jas 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
So in all that we do we should bless the lord:
Psa 103:1 Of David. Bless Jehovah, O my soul, and all within me, bless His holy name.
Psa 103:2 Bless Jehovah, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits;
Psa 103:3 He who forgives all your iniquities; who heals all your diseases;
Psa 103:4 who redeems your life from destruction; who crowns you with kindness and tender mercies;
Psa 103:5 who satisfies your desire with good; your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Psa 103:6 Jehovah works righteousness and judgments for all the oppressed.
Psa 103:7 He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the sons of Israel.
Psa 103:8 Jehovah is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and of abundant mercy.
Psa 103:9 He will not always chasten, nor will He keep His anger forever.
Psa 103:10 He has not done to us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
Psa 103:11 For as the heavens are above the earth, so is His mercy mighty over those who fear Him.
Psa 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
So why do we praise God? Because he is GOD!
Why do we promote Reliv?
Well first of all we have 2 stories to tell:
1. What was happening before we started to take Reliv
2. What happened as a result of taking Reliv
Nobody can take away our own personal story no matter how negative they are being.
Now because of our story we can promote Reliv with confidence knowing it works and as we continue to promote Reliv we start developing and larger and larger check, then we have a financial story to tell.
As you discover move about Dr Ted, you get a greater understand as to why the product he created is so powerful. Your life becomes and living testimony to good nutrition and people start complimenting you on how good you look.
People start asking you questions about what you are taking and how can it help them.
This is why people get very passionate about their Reliv business, because see how building their business is happing many people and many cases the money takes second place to the intrinsic benefits. Then the thing that seals it is the work of the Kalogris foundation and how all of the those feeding centres are impacting so many lives on a day to day basis.
So if you cannot get passionate about that, you are in the wrong business.
This is why we promote Reliv.
