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

“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.

How did Christ’s resurrection influence your spiritual walk?

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.

SPIRITUAL EYES

Dear Friends in Christ,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let us remember the resurrected Lord Jesus’ Great Commission.

Word:

When He (Jesus) was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other “Were not our hearts burning with in us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” Luke 24: 30-32

Thought:

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Cor 4:4

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20Corinthians%204:4

Prayer:

Dear God open our eyes to see the mission fields that are ready for harvest. Help us see with a moving compassion the multitudes of people without someone to show them the way. In Jesus name. Amen.

Stand firm in Christ

“Ephphatha!” – “Be opened!”

Dear Friends in Christ,

Thought for the week: Look at the Stars

Word for the week: The LORD took Abram outside and said, “Look up at the heavens and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.

Genesis 15:5-6

Jesus looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means, “Be opened!”). Mark 7:34

Imagine never worrying about anything!

Dear all,

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

Word:

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians%204:6-9

Thought: Imagine never worrying about anything! God’s peace is totally different from world’s peace. True peace is not found in positive thinking, in absence of conflict, in good feelings or with abundance of worldly blessings. It comes from knowing Christ in a personal way and believing that God is in control. Do we have this? Let God’s peace guard your heart against anxiety.

Stand firm in Christ

What kind of follower would a new Christian become if he or she imitated you?

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:

Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.

Philippians 3:17-21New International Version (NIV)

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+3:17-21

Thought: Paul challenged the Philippians to pursue Christlikeness by following Paul’s own pattern of example.

What kind of follower would a new Christian become if he or she imitated you?

2 Corinthians 3:2-3 says that you yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

Stand firm in Christ
