Christ Approved Inc, has a heart for the global community. We aim to strengthen, empower and inform our Christian family.
Let it all out when you speak to God. Apart of being a Christian is sharing your faith with others so that they may know the power of God as it is working but also praying with them or for them. Here is a place to leave prayer requests of your own or someone else’s. Also, we also suggest that out of the love inside you, consider praying for a few of the prayers that are posted. Prayer is a way to communicate to God through Jesus Christ. In love, we commune with God and in love we support those around us in the discipline of prayer.
Mission: Hey, Christ Approved is here to support you! The people we love and aim to empower. So we can keep reaching out to the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ we always welcome donations and gifts. We partner with various organizations and churches to further develop our communities and support global initiatives for those in need. We want to educate our youth, build our local impoverished communities and develop people in every positive aspect we can.
It’s an indisputable fact of the universe: we will sin. The Bible even says, “If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth” (1 John 1:8 NLT).
Having said that, it doesn’t give us an excuse to go out and willfully sin against God.
Yet some Christians say, “I believe that once saved, always saved. And because I’m saved, because I’m justified, I can go out and pretty much do whatever I want to do.”
So, they live in a pattern of habitual and continual sin. Talk about missing the point. They have misunderstood and misused the wonderful biblical teaching known as justification.
The apostle Paul wrote, “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:1 NKJV).
We see the word justification several times in the Book of Romans. Justification means that when we put our faith in Jesus Christ, God forgives all our sin. He also places the righteousness of Christ into our spiritual account.
One-way justification has been defined is “just as if it never had happened.” The problem is that some Christians stop at salvation. They don’t understand that the fruit of salvation should be evident in their lives.
Whoever continues in sin without remorse is not in danger of losing their salvation; rather, by their choices, they reveal they may never have had salvation to begin with.
The Bible tells us that “when people keep on sinning, it shows that they belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8 NLT).
God has justified us. And in light of that, we should want to live lives that honor Him.

Many people think they should wait to accept Christ’s offer of salvation until after they have improved themselves in some way. But that is actually the exact opposite of the gospel’s message.
We’re all unworthy of salvation. There is nothing we could ever do to merit God’s forgiveness and acceptance. However, He bridged the gap of sin that separated us and Him. We didn’t deserve this act of love; God did it on His own, motivated by His unfailing grace.
It would be a tragic error to think we had to make ourselves more presentable without first depending on Christ to enter our life. Jesus didn’t say, “Go clean yourselves up, get some rest, and then come to Me,” did He? Rather, He opened His arms and said, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).
Jesus didn’t wait until we deserved Him—He knew that we never could. Instead, He gave Himself freely for all mankind and extended an invitation for every sinner, just as he or she is, to come to Him and find rest.
If your goals are Godcentred, He will help you to achieve them. But if you are asking Him for something just because your neighbour has it, you’ll be disappointed. The Bible says, ‘…No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.’ (Psalm 84:11) When God withholds something from you, trust Him; He knows what He’s doing. God loves you too much to give you what you’re not ready for, can’t handle, doesn’t fit into His plan for your life, or will end up draining your energies and maybe even destroying you.
When you covet something, make it essential to your happiness, and beg God to give it to you, you’re asking Him to replace Himself with something you consider more important. When you do this, God may allow you to experience the consequences Israel suffered. ‘He gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.’ (Psalm 106:15) Don’t reach the end of your life only to look back with regret on a shattered marriage, children who’ve gone astray, a blighted conscience or the pain of realising you missed out on God’s best.
Our problem is not that we don’t want God; it’s that we want God – plus – a house by the sea, an impressive career, a perfect spouse, or whatever catches our fancy. That’s why Jesus said, ‘…Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.’ (Luke 12:15) Life is not built on things, it’s built on relationships. And the first relationship you need to work on is your relationship with God.
No matter what you may be going through — the pain you may be feeling or the place you are at in your life — you are not alone.
We want to help you or someone you may know who is facing depression or suicidal thoughts take steps towards health and healing.
We have gathered some articles, resources and stories from others who have been where you are.
You are not alone. There is hope. You have a purpose and we want to help you.
Covetousness begins with craving, and then evolves into conniving to get what you want. Achan, Ahab, Ananias and Sapphira were willing to steal, lie or kill to get what they wanted. ‘Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said,;I will never leave you nor forsake you;’ -Hebrews 13:5 _This Scripture means that what you have in Christ is greater than whatever else you don’t have! Covetousness is:
(1) Wanting status but not wanting to serve; wanting control so that you can be at the centre; wanting wealth strictly for yourself; wanting praise from others.
(2) Wanting the right things but for the wrong reasons ‘…If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work.’ (1 Timothy 3:1 NKJV) Wanting to make an impact is a good thing, but you must want it for the right reasons. If you want it for personal recognition and power over others, that’s covetousness.
(3) Wanting the right things but at the wrong time A young couple says, ‘We love each other. We’re going to get married in three months. But we want to sleep together now.’ They want the right thing for the right reason, but they want it at the wrong time. That’s covetousness.
(4) Wanting the right things but in the wrong amount Covetousness is wanting more than is required for your needs, and to fulfil God’s purpose for your life. Understand this: More of anything other than God will never satisfy the longing for fulfilment He’s placed within you. Only when you acknowledge that, will you find true and lasting happiness.

[04/02/20] “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” -2 Corinthians 4:17-18.

[03/31/20] For He Himself has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.' —Hebrews 13:5
Seeking God’s truth is like digging for gold: If we find a tiny flake, we keep scraping and shoveling until we come upon another, which may be a morsel no bigger than an apple seed. That little bit keeps us searching until we find a chunk the size of a marble, and so on. Each new nugget of God-experience is so exciting that we can’t stop excavating for more.
Just think of the advantages of this pursuit. First of all, seeking truth about the Lord naturally results in a more intimate relationship with Him. And aligning our life with these discoveries brings us confidence and the assurance that He is always guarding and guiding us.
Sometimes it’s hard to understand what God is doing in your life, but over time I’ve learned that we can identify His fingerprints in several ways:
First, the work God does is creative and powerful. He made heaven, earth, and all living creatures, and He knitted each of us in our mother’s womb. Then, through His Son Jesus, He powerfully accomplished salvation for all who trust in the Savior. What’s more, He adopted all believers into His family.
Second, we can see God’s work through Christ-centered prayers, which narrow our focus on the Lord. When we pray actively and persistently, we can more readily identify His actions and see how to join Him.
Third, the work of God becomes clear to a yielded heart, which prepares us to listen and obey. Regularly concentrating on God’s Word will clear our mind and help us understand what the Lord is up to.
Have you been too busy or distracted to notice what God is doing? If you want to perceive His work, these things can give you a fresh perspective. Admit your lack of attention, and refocus your heart and mind on the Lord.
Pray for our comrades across the world 🙏🏻

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
The only way you can live a life of truth, meaning, and abundance is by personally knowing Jesus Christ.
Pray. The greatest timesaver is prayer. Jesus recognized that His most valuable and productive use of time occurred when He was alone with the Father. As you seek God’s will, prayer acts as a compass in your life.
