Spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus

Grace and peace be to you in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Pet 1:2

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Eph 1:3

Word:

 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him—  you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame. II Peter 2: 4-6.

Thought: Let us renew our vision and confidence in Christ Jesus.

The Characteristics of Christ- the Corner stone, are completely trustworthy and precious to those who believe in Him.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Glorifying God and Making Disciples

Dear all,

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

Word:

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Thought:

Jesus left the disciples with these last words of instruction. We have to go – whether it is next door or another country – and make disciples. As we obey, we have comfort in the knowledge that Jesus is always with us.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Fear not! Stand Still! See the miraculous deliverance of our Lord!

Dear all,

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

Fear not! Stand Still! See the miraculous deliverance of our Lord!

13 Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14: 13 – 14

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” II Chronicles 20: 13b

 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” – Psalm 46: 10

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+46&version=NIV

Trusting in the LORD Jesus is the patient expectation that God will fulfill His promises in his Word and strengthen us to rise above life’s difficulties.

Do you have confident in Christ Jesus that His purposes are right? Do you believe God loves you and wants the best for you?

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Ruth 3: 18 – Sit still; Psalms 46 – Be still – To see the glory of God

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

Ruth 3: 18 – Sit still; Psalms 46 – Be still – To see the glory of God

  1. Then she said, “Wait, my daughter, until you know how the matter turns out; for the man will not rest until he has settled it today.”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+46&version=NASB

  1. “Cease strivingand know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Thought:

Let us understand the Word of God and apply it in our day-to-day life in every dimension. In addition, let us share the love of Christ Jesus to as many people as we can. Who knows? Ruth 3: 2 says “And it happened”. In our LORD’S Sovereign plan He decided to bring Ruth as “Mother of Kings” and our LORD Jesus when he came to this world, he came as a descendant of Ruth (Matthew 1: 5). We should never under estimate the resurrected power of Christ Jesus in us.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Made Alive In Christ Jesus

Dear all,

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

Made Alive In Christ Jesus: Ephesians 2: 1-10

Word: For by grace you have been saved through faith; and [h]that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. (Verses 8 – 10).

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+2%3A1-10&version=NASB

Thought:  The advantages of new life through our LORD Jesus Christ are in multiple folds. For example, we can live under an open heaven. Living under an open heaven means we are God’s children and our day-to-day life will be totally transformed by Christ’s resurrection power for His glory. A transformed life is an effective witness to the power of God’s Word. It is not based on the righteous works we do, but only by His grace.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Gift of Forgiveness in Christ Jesus

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

As we studied about God’s amazing forgiveness in Psalms 51, let us continue to remember His goodness and faithfulness in our life.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+51&version=NASB

Word: Gift of Forgiveness in Christ Jesus – Romans 5: 5 – 20

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+5%3A12+-+20&version=NASB

                But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.

Thought:

Through the cross of Christ Jesus we have salvation and new life. Moreover, we also have an excellent opportunity to be born into His Spiritual family. Certainly, this spiritual family line starts with His amazing forgiveness and results in everlasting life.

Are you confessing the same sins over and over?

Dear all,

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and we wish you a blessed New Year. As we continue to learn more about wisdom let us live obedient to His Word.

Word:

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.  1 John 1:9

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20John%201:9

Thought: Are you confessing the same sins over and over?

When we come to Christ and genuinely confess our sins to God, He forgives our sins. True confession also includes a strong and unwavering commitment to not continue to live in sin. In addition, we need to remain strong in Christ and set godly boundaries. God is able to give us the strength we need to defeat temptation and trials every single time. Totally relying on His power is more than enough to lead a victorious Christian life.
