Sparrow’s Nest and Christ-Centered Family Life

Dear all,

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

Word of God:

Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young a place near your altar, O LORD Almighty, my King, and my God. Psalms 84: 3

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Luke 12: 7

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “You are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 41 – 42.

Thought:

To live a practical and a victorious Christian life we must keep our eyes on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is our King and we are His People. In addition, we have our sonship in Christ-Jesus. He is our role model too. Our LORD is faithful, and His faithfulness endures to all generations (Psalms 119: 90).

Revival is an experience in the Church; Evangelism is an expression of the Church – Paul-S. Rees.

“Alpha and the Omega”

Dear all,

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16: 13 -14.

Word: Revelation 1: 7-8

Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.  “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Thought: When we put our trust in Christ Jesus, no matter what the circumstances are we can rejoice in the new life in him at every moment of life. God is the “Alpha and the Omega” – the beginning and the end. He is the eternal God, unlimited by time. He is also the Almighty, able to do anything. We can have hope and peace because God is in control of our past, present and future.

God is our Refuge and Strength, an ever-Present Help in Trouble

Dear all,

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.  II Cor 1: 2

Word:        

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth gives way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalms 46: 1 – 3

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. John 15: 1 – 4.

Thought: How can I receive strength and confidence?

LORD Jesus is our eternal refuge and gives strength and confidence in all circumstances.

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

Faith can Move the Mountains of Obstacles

Dear all,

Grace and peace be to you in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word of God:

“Faith can move the mountains of obstacles”

Fight the good fight of faith… (I Tim 6:12)

This is the victory that hath overcome the world, even our faith (I John 5:4)

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. Heb 4: 12 -13

Thought:

The word of God is living, life-changing and dynamic as it works in us. The demands of God’s word require decisions … a strong and firm decision in Christ. We must also let it shape our lives.

Dare to be a Daniel! Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm! Dare to make it known!
Hold the Gospel banner high! On to vict’ry grand!
Satan and his host defy, And shout for Daniel’s Band!
(Philip P. Bliss, 1838-1876)

LORD Jesus Christ: Light of the World

Dear all,

May God bless you and keep you in His presence and His peace during this Christmas season and years to come.

 Word:

“For unto us a child is born, unto us, a Son is given”. (Isaiah 9)

Thought:

God sent us the light of the world LORD Jesus Christ to show His light to those who are in darkness.

God sent us the Savior to seek and save those who are lost.

Pass it On! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Be strong and glad!

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a blessed new-year 2020.

We are the Aroma of Christ-Jesus

Dear all,

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

Memory verse:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Thought for the week:

But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. IICor 2: 14 -15

Do we have Authentic Friends 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 the Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word: Mark 2: 1 – 12

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+2%3A1-12&version=NIV

Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Verses 3 – 5.

Thought:

Jesus came not only to heal physical problems but also to solve the sin problem. If we have not yet come to know Jesus, we are paralyzed in spirit, as powerless to help ourselves as was this paralyzed man. If our faith is still too weak to carry us to the point of healing, the faith of “four friends” may be enough to get us there. Adapted from Every Man’s Bible, Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.

 How did Christ’s Resurrection Influence your Spiritual Journey?

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:

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you. Romans 8: 11

Thought:

The Holy Spirit is God’s promise of eternal life for those who believe in Him. The Spirit is in us now by faith, and by faith, we are certain to live with Christ forever. He is the power source behind the spiritual rebirth of every Christian and He gives the power to live a victorious Christian life in this world.

 How did Christ’s resurrection influence your spiritual walk?

We can trust God with anything because the resurrection changes everything.

What will God Testify about you and me? 

Greetings in LORD Jesus Christ’s mighty name.
 
Praise Him- for His love endures forever
 
Psalm 113:3
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
    the name of the Lord is to be praised.  
 
Such is the greatness of our Lord and God almighty. He is Holy and He is worthy to be praised. This is what we see in Revelation 4:8-11
 

…“‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’[a] who was, and is, and is to come.”….“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will, they were created and have their being.”  

There is so much more in Praising God than we can ever imagine (especially in our struggles).  When we start praising God, Our focus changes from self to GOD. This is where we often have trouble, especially in difficult times. But the movement we open our hearts to praise HIM, He fills us with joy, peace, comfort, strength, etc. Such is the goodness of our God. He is Trustworthy. When we praise God, it helps us to humble and rely on Him to bring us out of struggles, to overcome. Praise changes our mindset from complaining to trusting God, reliance on GOD. Praise invites HIS Presence into our lives, situations. Praise refreshes and renews our spirit in HIM. Praise allows God to release His power and do miracles. (Acts 16:25-26)
 
We can trust in many things, but nothing can ever come close or even be compared to what God offers us in Him. So Praise Him
Our sufferings are temporary. But remember who we are in Christ, He loves us, He has called us His Children, He Blessed us. Let us praise the Lord forever. 
 
May the LORD fill us with His Holy Spirit and let we Praise Him all day long and all the days of our life as King David, whom God testified as “A man after my Own Heart”(1 Samuel 13:14, Acts 13:22)
What will God Testify about you and me? 
 

God Bless.    

“Personal Evangelism “ – “One Person with God is a Majority”

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: 

And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. II Timothy 2: 2

Thought: “Personal Evangelism “ – “One Person with God is a Majority”

Personal evangelism plays a major role in making disciples for LORD Jesus Christ. The ministry is not something we get for ourselves and keep to ourselves. We are stewards of the spiritual treasure God has given us. It is our responsibility to guard the deposit and then invest in the lives of others. They, in turn, are to share the Word with the next generation of believers. – Adapted from Warren Wiersbe Bible commentary.

Have you ever considered how one generation carries the Gospel of Christ Jesus to the next generation? Have you ever wondered what would happen to the Gospel of Christ Jesus if one generation failed to pass it on?

Revival is an experience in the Church; Evangelism is an expression of the Church – Paul-S. Rees.
