My King

Dr. S. M. Lockridge Introduces the King of Kings

When trying to describe Jesus Christ, words are in adequate. However when it comes to what can be done with words and images, this video is about as good as it gets. I encourage you to take 3 minutes and watch it. You will be inspired!

Human beings are a spirit, we have a mind, and we live in a body.

We maximize our health potential by aligning our lives more fully with God's natural design for spirit, mind and body.

God can be trusted. Therefore, if he tells us to do something, it's for our benefit. If He tells us to avoid something it's for our protection.

God's word says "Fear the Lord, depart from evil, it will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones (Proverbs 3:7-8). In the next chapter of Proverbs we see this: "give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body (Proverbs 4:20-22).

When we cooperate with our design rather than resist it, it's like swimming with the current not against it. We make far more progress with much less effort! The problem is, how can we align our lives more fully with God's design if we haven't surrendered to His Lordship?  If this makes sense to you, read my statement of faith below.

 My Statement of Faith

  • There is one Holy and Living God who exists in 3 persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • All Scripture was given by inspiration of God, and in it's original form is infallible and inerrant.
  • The creation account in Genesis is literal and the first human beings Adam and Eve were created to live in perfect harmony with God's created order. As such, they had eternal life, and they enjoyed ideal health and vitality in spirit, mind, and body.
  • Adam and Eve through willful rebellion to God's design, (sin) fell from their position of right standing with God, surrendered mankind's authority to Satan, and became spiritually dead. As a result, everyone born after the fall are also under the consequence of sin and unless their sins are atoned for are eternally separated from God.
  • God sent His Son Jesus, born of a virgin, conceived by The Holy Spirit to live a sinless life and assume the consequences of our disobedience on himself. 
  • In order to rescue or "save" the human race from our sinful state, Jesus was crucified on a cross, died, was buried, and resurrected on the third day, thus conquering sin and death and now reigns with power and authority over all creation.
  • All who repent of their sins, put their trust in Jesus as savior and Lord and accept the free gift of His atoning sacrifice for their sins, will receive forgiveness, and inherit eternal life (John 3:16).

Many believe Jesus to be a "good teacher" or a "prophet". I would agree. However, Jesus said he is the way to God the Father (John 14:16). He didn't say he is way, but the way. He claimed equality with God (John 8:58, 14:11 )! These claims leave us with 3 possible conclusions. He's either a liar, a lunatic, or Lord.

It's impossible to be a "good teacher" and a liar or lunatic at the same time. If He's a liar (a con-artist) or a lunatic that somehow pulled off the biggest hoax in the history of mankind, that would prevent Him from being a "good teacher".

That leaves us with only one feasible conclusion: He is the one-and-only son of God, the Messiah, the Savior of the world and the only one worthy of surrendering our lives to. 

To accept the free gift of salvation pray a prayer like this: "Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Name I pray. Amen." 

Once saved, although spiritually alive, we continue to live in an imperfect, sinful, fallen world and are still subject to illness and physical death. However, as stated above, we can put ourselves is better positions to enjoy all the health and vitality God has is in mind for us by surrendering to God's goodness and His great love. Let's not let our poor choices keep us from living abundantly as christ promised (John 10:10).
