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

Prayer – Always Pray and Don’t Give up

Dear all,

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

Word:  For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust. Psalms 103: 11 – 14

 

Thought:  Prayer – Always Pray and Don’t Give up

Knowing God:

Unless we know God in a personal way through the love of Christ Jesus we cannot love God. If we don’t have the love of God we may not carry the Word of God. If we don’t have the Word of God we can’t have the fear of God.

When we know He loves us, we can believe He will hear our cries for help. Holy Spirit is the key person to reveal the divine essence of God in Christ Jesus.

May God enhance our Spiritual eyes to see the marvelous light in Christ Jesus!

Fan or Follower

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word:  “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9: 23

Thought:  Fan or Follower!

Not a fan 3

In order to carry the cross we must “put down” some things:  what is the LORD calling you to put down?

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.

 

Rivers Of Difficulty

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:

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.

When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up;

The flames will not consume you. Isaiah 43: 2

Thought:  Going through rivers of difficulty will either cause you to drown or force you to grow stronger. If you go in your own strength, you are more likely to drown. If you invite the LORD to go with you, He will protect you. It is our choice! May God help us to make wise choices.

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

led by the Spirit of God are the children of God

Dear all,

Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10

Word: Life by the Spirit

(Jesus) I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10b

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to son ship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8: 14-17

16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Galatians 5: 16-18

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galatians+5&version=NIV

Thought: When you follow God’s call on your life, you might find yourself in some unfamiliar places. A seedy part of town. Onstage, speaking in front of a large group. A completely different country. You might get a little scared. And that’s okay. What’s important to remember is that God is always with you.
