Local Ministries Vs Global Ministries

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word:

28 Therefore I am all the more eager to send him, so that when you see him again you may be glad and I may have less anxiety. 29 So then, welcome him in the Lord with great joy, and honor people like him, 30 because he almost died for the work of Christ. He risked his life to make up for the help you yourselves could not give me.

Thought:

Even though Paul was in prison he is preaching about Christ. Circumstances cannot stop Christ’s work if we are doing God’s ministry according to His perfect plan. From the prison cell he indicates that we should honor those who give their lives for the sake of Christ, going where we cannot go ourselves. Our missionaries do that for us today by providing ministry where we are not able to go physically.

Are we supporting missionaries by prayers and sending some kind of support? We need to support local ministries as well as global ministries to share the love of Christ to those who are living next door as well as next continent. Jesus said come and I will make you fishers of man.

Stand firm in Christ

 CHAZAK CHAZAK V’NITCHAZEK – “Be Strong. Be strong and be strengthened”.

Dear all,

Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. Galatians 1: 3 – 4.

Word:

Revelation: 21: 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.

Psalm: 100: 3 Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Thought:

God doesn’t live in buildings but in people’s hearts. He made our heart for His dwelling. Have you experienced the true deliverance in Christ Jesus? If not, during this Christmas season come closer to the light of God’s presence and make a quick evaluation of your spiritual condition.

Citizens of Heaven

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word: But we are the citizens of heaven, where the LORD Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under control.

Thought:

God’s Sovereign Plan:

Citizens of heaven have to promote heaven’s interests on earth and lead lives worthy of heavenly citizenship. As Bible says we are here living as aliens and strangers. In this faith journey, God is equipping us to live forever with him. Our earthly pleasures and treasures should not be a hurdle in our walk with Christ Jesus.

Have you transferred your citizenship? How are you promoting heaven’s interest?

IS THE LORD JESUS’S POWER LIMITED?

IS THE LORD JESUS’S POWER LIMITED?

Promises – Problems – Promotion

The answer is “NO”, because our LORD Jesus is still on His throne.

Read Isaiah 6 and Revelation 1

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah+6&version=NASB

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=revelation%201&version=NASB

Suffering – is it the true path of a successful Christian life? The answer is amazingly “YES”. There are too many ways to hell but the only way to heaven is through LORD Jesus (John 15). We may ask why these things are happening in my life or why a lot of natural disasters around me? Is it God’s judgement or does God call people in a different way to have a closer walk with him? Are these your questions? Remember, LORD Jesus is the only person who can change the question mark into an exclamation mark! You may read any passage from his teachings and connect these dots and get a full picture.

God has given the promises! But, problems are arising; remember God has a perfect time for a wonderful promotion. Every promise from God will be fulfilled in the life of the child of God according to the master plan of Almighty God. For example, in the life of Joseph (Genesis 37) the problems could not kill or destroy the promise of God. Remember, our names are written by God in the book of life and this life is a faith journey to equip us to be with him forever.

Never underestimate the resurrected power of LORD Jesus! Since, we are the temple of the Holy Spirit we are carrying the presence of God with us wherever we go. For instance, God created turtle with a dwelling place on the top of the animal and we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Let the Joy of the LORD fill our hearts and mind to build us as His holy temple.

We have been delivered by the power of Jesus name and we should not go and voluntarily tie up with sin again! Sin is not fun and I strongly believe that Holy life in Christ Jesus is a Jolly life. When we lay a strong foundation for our Spiritual life (Matthew 7), God is able to construct the superstructure. Even in the midst of a bundle of problems we will be victorious in the name of Jesus! We should not obey the voice of Satan but put on the full armor of God to stand firm in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 6). Satanic forces want to destroy our character by triggering us to sin.  In addition, the ultimate aim of the satanic forces is to steal your relationship with Christ Jesus and kill the peace of mind in Christ Jesus.

What do we need to do? Resist the devil in Jesus’ name and stand firm in Christ Jesus.  The immediate preventive measures should be taken against the strategies of satanic forces by the heavenly guidance of the Holy Spirit. God is able to carry us through it. Have faith in Him for His Omnipotence and His Omnipresence. Joseph never compromised with sin (Genesis 37).

Repent, Realize and Visualize – God’s plan cannot be destroyed by satanic devices and by his strategies. God will promote us when we submit our thought life, emotional life and physical life absolutely to God. Partial submission is disobedience. For a believer in Christ Jesus every problem is an opportunity to proclaim Jesus’ name!

Where are we? Redemption is near! Let us walk with Him humbly!  Jesus will not permit us to be ashamed and He will not permit us to walk through a path of suffering without a reason. Let us grow in Christ Jesus in a well-balanced way, by reading the Word of God and applying the Word of God in every situation. Prayer can change anything and prayer can change any one and it can change the emptiness of life into a fulfilled and meaningful life!

No matter what, God can make every tragedy as a strategy to proclaim His holy name like He did it in His Holy Bible’s characters such as Joseph, Daniel, Paul, Peter, and on and on and on.

 

Cost of Christian discipleship

Dear all,

Greetings in the name of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word:        Luke 14: 25 – 33

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2014:25-33

 

  1. And if you do not carry your cross and follow me, you can not be my disciple.

Thought: Cost of Christian discipleship

LORD Jesus encouraged those who were superficial either to go deeper or to turn back. Following Christ Jesus means an absolute submission to do God’s will and to follow His foot prints.

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

“JOYFUL JOURNEY WITH GOD IS INITIATED AND IGNITED IN LORD JESUS CHRIST BY THE POWER OF HOLY SPIRIT”

We live by faith, not by sight

Dear all,

May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. II Thes 3: 16

Word: Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, The righteous man shall live by faith.” Galatians 3:11

We live by faith, not by sight – II Corinthians 5: 11

Thought: Trying to be right with God by our own effort doesn’t work. Good intentions such as “I’ll do better next time” or “I’ll never do that again” usually end in failure. Paul points out here that by trusting God – believing in his provision for our sins and living each day in his power – we can break this cycle of failure.

Divine power of LORD Jesus

Dear all,

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1:2

Word:

                       His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. II Peter 1:3 and 4

Thought:

The power to lead a godly life comes from God. He allows us to “share his divine nature” in order to keep us away from sin and help us to live every day for him. When we are born again, God by his spirit empowers us with his own goodness to show the love of Christ to others.
