Discipleship is a Life-long Process

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:        Luke 14: 25 – 33

  1. And if you donot carry your cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple.

Thought: Cost of True Christian Discipleship

A disciple of Jesus is someone who possesses a heart for God and a teachable attitude toward Jesus. He or She is ready to receive forgiveness, teaching, direction, help, love and encouragement for him.

Following Christ Jesus means an absolute submission to do God’s will and to follow His foot prints. No matter what the cost, let us follow the foot prints of Jesus.

  • True faith in Christ Jesus transforms our conduct, attitude, character, speech pattern, motives and actions.
  •      Discipleship is a life-long process

Stand firm in Christ

How has God’s Word taken root in your 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

Word:

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

19 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. 20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 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. 22 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. 23 But the seed falling on good soil refers 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 13:19-23New 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 shallow, others are contaminated by distracting by distracting worries, and 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

‘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!

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

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.

“Jesus Reinstates Peter”

Dear all,

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

Word: “Jesus Reinstates Peter

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”  Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you loveme?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.” The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. John 21: 15 – 17

Thought:

Jesus asked Peter three times if he loved him. The first time Jesus said, “Do you love me more than these? (Greekagape: self-sacrificial love). The second time, Jesus focused on peter alone and still used the word translated into Greek,agape. The third time, Jesus used the word translated into Greek, phileo (brotherly love) and asked, in effect, “Are you even my friend?

If Lord Jesus Christ asked us the same question today, what will be our response? If we do everything out of love we will never be disappointed. Let us run for the Lord with love.

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Roman 5:5

All to Jesus I surrender;

All to him I freely give;

I will ever love and trust him,

In his presence daily live.    Judson W. Van DeVenter, 1896

Truth Will Set You Free

Dear Friends,

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Word:

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Mat 11:28-30.

Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Mat 8:31-32

Thought:

 Frustration to Fruitation

Jesus frees people from the bondage of sins. The rest that Jesus promises is love, healing and peace with God.

A true relationship with God changes meaningless, wearisome toil in to spiritual productivity and purpose.

  • True faith in Christ Jesus transforms our conduct, attitude, character, speech pattern, motives and actions.
  • No matter what the cost, let us follow the foot prints of Jesus.

Stand firm in Christ
