Zac Poonen – Bible Teacher
I’ve been thinking quite a bit as to what exactly I should share with you in the four sessions we have today, apart from the Q and A session. And after giving it some thought, I felt I should share with you something that I spoke about 13 years ago, where I gave a series of four messages on some of the truths I had learned in 50 years of my life — my Christian life.
So I wrote them down here. There were 16 truths. I hope to take four of them in each session. But these are truths that have tremendously affected my life and my ministry, given me a security in God and a confidence, helped in spiritual growth and also influenced me greatly in building the church and the different churches.
See, the devil always tries to make us condemned for one reason or another. Romans 8:1 is a great verse. I would encourage all of you to remember it: ‘There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.’ So don’t ever let the devil condemn you saying you’re good for nothing, you’re useless.
I was useless and good for nothing as an unconverted person. But when Jesus chose me and made me His, I became very valuable to God. And I don’t care what other people think about it. If I’m valuable to God, that’s the most important thing. And that’s true of you, too. If you have given your life to Christ, don’t let anyone make you feel — don’t let the devil make you feel, you’re small, you’re not gifted, you’ve been a Christian so long, and there’s hardly any progress in your life.
