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.

Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Prayer – Two Way Communication with God

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:

16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews+4%3A16&version=NASB

Thought:

Prayer is our humble approach to God, and we are to come “boldly.” In addition, come with reverence because he is our King. Are we prayerful and empowered by the power of Holy Spirit?

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.

A Portrait of the Christian Life

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

A Portrait of the Christian Life

The Incomparable Christ: For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1: 13 – 14

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

Thoughts: Benefits God offers to all believers through Christ Jesus:

  1. God has rescued his people from Satan’s kingdom of darkness and made us his children.
  2. God has brought us into his eternal kingdom.
  3. God has purchased our freedom from sin and judgment with his blood.
  4. God has forgiven all our sins.

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.

Be Strong in the LORD and in His Mighty Power

Dear all,

Be strong in the LORD and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10 – 20

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+6%3A10-20&version=NASB

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

In our spiritual battle we face a powerful army that has well-organized strategies to defeat Christ’s church at any cost. Although, at the end we are assured victory in Christ, now we must engage in the struggle until Christ returns. “Take courage” in God’s strength to withstand and to overcome enemy’s every evil action. In James 4: 7, Bible says “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you”.

Living with grateful Heart

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: “Living with grateful Heart”

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalms 100: 4 and 5

Thought:

Nothing will get out of control when Christ Jesus is your LORD! Never forget God’s goodness and dependability.

May God bless and strengthen you all the days of your life. Ephesians 6: 12 -17

Inner Essence of Worship

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 of God:

45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=luke+1%3A+26-45&version=NIV

The inner essence of worship is to know God truly and then to respond from the heart to that knowledge by: valuing God, treasuring God, prizing God, enjoying God being satisfied with God above all earthly things. And then that deep, restful, joyful satisfaction in God overflows in demonstrable acts of love in serving others for the sake of Christ Jesus. – John Piper.

Application:

1.      Is Jesus asking me to obey Him in a specific area?

2.      How can I be a true worshipper of Jesus this Christmas season?

Stand firm in Christ
