What we feed our minds?

Dear all,

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace and bless you as a channel of blessings.

Acts 14: 17 says “He sends rain and good crops and give you food and joyful hearts”.

Let us receive His blessings and share the blessings to many nations.

Thought:

What we feed our minds is just more as important as what we feed our bodies. The kinds of websites we visit, kinds of books we read, the people we talk with, the Christian music we listen to, and the Christian preachers we listen to are all part of our mental diet. Be discerning, because what you feed your mind influences your total health and well-being. Thus a strong desire like Heroes of faith Joshua, Daniel, and Paul etc etc (Hebrews 11) to discover knowledge is a mark of wisdom in Christ Jesus. Our attitude colors our whole personality. The true happiness in Christ Jesus is in your thoughts not based on the things what we have. We cannot always choose what happens to us, but we can choose our attitude toward each situation. The secret to a joyful heart is filling our mind with thoughts that dwell on the good things in life (Philip 4: 8). This was Paul’s secret as he faced imprisonment because of the true Gospel of Christ Jesus and it can be ours as we face struggles of daily living. Look and check your attitude and then examine in the presence of God what you allow to enter your mind and what you choose to dwell on. You may need to make some positive changes and seek to do what is right, walk humbly with the LORD Jesus Christ in this Journey (Zephaniah 2: 3). Be the Church (Romans 12:3-5) and be the tent maker like Aquila and Pricilla’s family (Acts 18:1-4; 18-20; 24-26).

Arise and Shine for Christ Jesus

Have a blessed walk in Christ

Wish you all a Christ centered Christmas season

Four types of soils: What kind of soil are you?

Dear all,

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

Four types of soils: What kind of soil are you?

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+13%3A19-23&version=NIV

When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. But the seed falling on good soilrefers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” Matthew 13:19-23 New International Version (NIV).

Thought:

The four types of soils represent different responses to God’s message. People respond differently because they are in different states. Some are hardened,others are shallowothers are contaminated by distracting by distracting worriesand some are receptive.

How has God’s Word taken root in your life?

What kind of soil are you?

Let us be ready to accept the Word of God and grow in Christ Jesus and live for Him.

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

sIn Vs SON – Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ

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:  Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ – Romans 6

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin— because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.9 For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.

Thought: Have you stepped into Christ? Are you living on a plane far above evil principalities and powers? Have you come to the end of “self”? Remember, I never brings anything but failures. It is the I in “s-I-n” that must be removed put O in its place and you have “SON”. He will give you victory! – Adapted from “What the Bible is All About by Henrietta Mears”

‘God’s deep secrets’

Dear all,

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

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

Word:

However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” the things God has prepared for those who love him. These are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.1 Corinthians 2:9-10

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Corinthians+2%3A9-10&version=NASB

Thought:

‘God’s deep secrets’ refer to God’s unfathomable nature and his wonderful plan – Jesus’ Death and Resurrection and the promise of salvation, revealed only to those who believe that what God says is true.

God never forgets His People. He is good at all time. God’s eyes are watching us and His grace and mercy are hovering over us. Honestly, we cannot hide anything from Him.

Be brave!

O God, You are my God;

Dear all,

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

Word: Psalms 63: 1 -8

O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.2 Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because Your loving kindness is better than life, My lips will praise You. So I will bless You as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches, For You have been my help, And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.  My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me.

Thought:

In these Bible verses King David reviewed all the ways God had already helped him, and he greeted the next day with songs of praise. In our quiet moments or wakeful nights, make it a point to count examples of God’s faithfulness to us. Doing so is far more likely to give us rest than any other items we might count!

COST OF DISCIPLESHIP

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:  “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15: 5

Thought: The Spirit filled life is the Christ-directed life by which Christ lives His life in and through us in the power of the Holy Spirit. Faith is the only means by which a Christian can live the Spirit filled life.

Action plan: Pray for the Holy Spirit to lead your life and be humble to accept his guidance. The cost of discipleship may be different for each and every one.

“Transformed souls impacting the campuses and the globe as disciples of the LORD Jesus Christ”

Dear all,

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Phil 1:2

Word: 

Led by the Holy Spirit series

Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is unsearchable.  One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts. Psalms 145: 3 – 4

Thought:

Remember God’s goodness in Christ Jesus, grace and dependability in our lives. He never puts his people to shame. Worship Him with whole heart, mind and soul.  Thank and Praise Him – His love endures forever and it is deeper than the ocean.
