Before apostle Paul discussed how important it is to be transparent, hold one another accountable and be proactive in our walk --
Jesus wanted it for us too.

He came here and lived among us, He encountered our same struggles and knows how necessary it is that we be honest and admit that in order to get through good and bad times we can't do it on our own. And He never intended for us to.

Something else I've read puts 'our place' in a different light:
God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters.
~Unknown

These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another.
John 15:11-17

Think of all the beauty, hope and wonder that is proposed here -- this is what God wants for us. Even though we are inadequate, our faith and His grace negates our inadequacy. So let's seek God, step outside of our inhibitions and insecurities to experience and live the potential Jesus knows is within. Today when you're at church feeling all the joy and awesomeness of worship, wisdom and fellowship -- hold on to that feeling throughout the week, don't let it end there because in all reality it's only the beginning!

Philippians 1:6
being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;

Philippians 2:1-4
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!

Honestly consider if you by your own actions --
show that you love your neighbor as yourself or put the latter into practice more often...?

Freedom in Christ

For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them." But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for "the just shall live by faith." Yet the law is not of faith, but "the man who does them shall live by them." Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree") that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator. Now a mediator does not mediate for one only, but God is one. Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Local Music Concert tonight at Lestat's:

Trevor Davis on Myspace

(In his words):
"I'm going to be at Lestat's in San Diego tonight and I think you should be there too! The show starts at 9, but it tends to get packed so early arrival is suggested. And in case you haven't heard, I've been recording my new album and it's finally starting to take shape! I'm excited to play some new material, so if you can make it, make it!

Thanks for the support. Hope to see you tonight!"

Something it's essential as Christians for us to keep in mind:
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
Romans 6:1-14

So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.
~2 Corinthians 5:16-18

Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
~1 Corinthians 15:57-58

God calls us His 'beloved':
To those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ:
May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you.
~Jude 1:1-2

hey everyone
I was searching and searching for a place where there would be other Christians from San Diego and finally found this place. awesomeness. I hope that people still look here because no one has said anything in a while but anywho, I live in Chula vista but mostly travel to east county [i go to Grossmont College]. if anyone thinks about it could you pray for me, my husband and i are looking into buying a house in la mesa that will totally be for the youth but we need as many people as we can to be praying for us to do this in God's timing and will. if we try to do this ahead of God then it totally will not turn out right and we will majorly struggle. thanks and my name is alyssa.

That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie brown.Collapse )

And in case you didn't know:
The reason I created sd_christians is because there was none (until now). I didn't create this community for me, I created it for everyone. It's not just about having get togethers, it's about sharing devotionals, prayer requests, praise reports. I purposely don't want the community to be about me or what I want from it.
I want everyone to participate, and share -- so that whoever is a member expresses whatever that maybe and it proves to meet a vast amount of needs.

Mood: contemplative.
Often times I've been asked why I put up with some of my friends, yes their concerns have been warranted, and I'm not likely to have as much stamina as these verses are asking, but it's something to seriously consider in times of difficulty.

Some words to meditate on:

Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. And when he had begun to settle accounts, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents. But as he was not able to pay, his master commanded that he be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and that payment be made. The servant therefore fell down before him, saying, ‘Master, have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’ Then the master of that servant was moved with compassion, released him, and forgave him the debt. “But that servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, ‘Pay me what you owe!’ So his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you all.' And he would not, but went and threw him into prison till he should pay the debt. So when his fellow servants saw what had been done, they were very grieved, and came and told their master all that had been done. Then his master, after he had called him, said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me. Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you?’ And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him. “So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses.”
~Matt 18:21-35 (NKJV)

Welcome to San Diego Christians. If any of you have other friends who are also a 'San Diego Christian' please encourage them to join. Please don't hesitate to post anything that comes to mind. I'm interested in having get-togethers, but this is first and foremost a Christian community--intending to adhere to our faith first.

What kind of Christian music is among your favorites? A few of mine includes: Jennifer Knapp, Newsboys, Sonic Flood & Bleach.
Also what does everyone have planned for Monday?
