Nominal Christians

I want you to know something. God wants to come today and He wants to reignite the fire in your heart.

Hello, this is Robert Henderson and I am with Robert Henderson Ministries and you are watching God Today.  You know, there is something that we term or call “nominal Christians” today.  What is that?  That is believers that really are not energized in their faith.  They are really not energized in their relationship with the Lord.  They are just kind of going in life existing if you will, but they are not excited about the salvation that Jesus actually bought for them.


In Hebrews 2, I believe it is, the Bible talks about those who become untied and slip away.  In fact, the writer says, “Let us therefore not slip away.”  That is what nominal Christians do.  They actually can become untied from that which would anchor their faith.  And this is the picture.  The motion of the water would cause them to be washed out away from shore.  All of a sudden, they would wake up and realize, “How did I get so far away from Jesus?” That’s what happens to nominal Christians.


But I want you to know something.  God wants to come today and He wants to reignite the fire in your heart.  Maybe you have slipped away from the Lord.  Maybe the motion of the ocean, if you will, the movement of the waters of life has caused you to suddenly realize, “You know what? I am not close to Jesus anymore.”  The Lord wants to come and He wants to bring you back, He wants to re-tie you, He wants to anchor you back to who He is.  I promise you as that happens, a great peace, a great excitement, a great stirring will again begin to stir in your heart.


Let me pray for you because God wants to bring you back to Himself.  Father, I pray right now, even as Peter said, let us return to the Bishop of our souls.  Father, I am asking that all that would watch me right now, that might feel like they are just going through the motions and they have slipped away from the Lord, would you let them be restored?  And would you let them, I pray, Lord, be returned to you? And reignite the fire in their hearts again. In Jesus’ name. Lord bless you, God has a great destiny for you as you set your heart back on Him.  This is God Today with Robert Henderson.
