Weapons of Spiritual Warfare are not Worldly

Dear all,

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

Word and Thought:

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. (2 Corinthians10:3, 4)

The weapons of spiritual warfare are not worldly. They are powerful through God to demolish the devil’s forts. We don’t wage war with human plans and methods. Remember, we should always sharpen our spiritual weapons in prayer and by waiting before God with perseverance (Ephesians 6:13 -18).

The Lord of the Armies is with us. We stand still and know that He is God! (Psalms 46:9-11). Stop and listen to Him before you proceed!

When God is supplying all your weapons for the spiritual battle, no challenge is too big to win. While you are walking through the rocky road – Remember Jesus also walked on the same road. So He is able to give strength to overcome the evil with good.

Whatever the resources we have let us use them for the development of Christ’s kingdom. Moses had a stick – God asked Moses what is in your hand and God used Moses mightily. David had a pebble – God has used that pebble. Gideon – God encouraged him by addressing him as a” mighty man”. Now whatever resources we have in our hands – let us use for Christ’s Kingdom.

Though the ills of earth may wound me,

And the storms of life confound me—

With His loving arms around me,

I’ll go with Him all the way!

(Fanny J. Crosby, 1823-1915)

LORD JesusChrist – Alpha and the Omega

Dear all,

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

Word: “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1: 8

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+1%3A8&version=NIV

Thought: He is God of the past, present and future, bending time ti His perfect will, unfettered by its constraints. He is never late, never subject to the tyranny of a deadline, never in a hurry, never playing catch-up with a schedule that has careened out of control (Ecclesiastes 3).

Adapted from More like Him by Jen Wilkin https://www.crossway.org/books/none-like-him-tpb/

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.

Peace with God 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 Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word of God: Romans 5: 1-2

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b]boast in the hope of the glory of God.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+5&version=NIV

Thoughts: When we accept LORD Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, a significant exchange takes place in our heart. We give Him our sins, and He forgives and makes us right with God. Are we right with God? If not today is the day of Salvation.

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.

Gift of Forgiveness 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 Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

As we studied about God’s amazing forgiveness in Psalms 51, let us continue to remember His goodness and faithfulness in our life.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+51&version=NASB

Word: Gift of Forgiveness in Christ Jesus – Romans 5: 5 – 20

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+5%3A12+-+20&version=NASB

                But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.

Thought:

Through the cross of Christ Jesus we have salvation and new life. Moreover, we also have an excellent opportunity to be born into His Spiritual family. Certainly, this spiritual family line starts with His amazing forgiveness and results in everlasting life.

The Cleansed Life – Godly Sorrows Vs Worldly Sorrows

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: Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+7:10

Thought: The Cleansed Life – Godly Sorrows Vs Worldly Sorrows

If the Holy Spirit was sent to give us power to live a victorious life in all the areas of our life, why do we feel so powerless, so defeated?  Do we have any unconfessed sin in our life? What kind of concerns do we have in our lives? Is it Godly or worldly? God does not fill an unclean vessel with His limitless power and His amazing love. The vessels of our lives must be cleansed by the blood of our LORD Jesus before it can be filled with the Holy Spirit of God.

Ministry of Reconciliation

Dear all,

Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. Psalms 43: 3

Word: Ministry of Reconciliation

18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.       2 Corinthians 5:18-21 (NIV)

 

Thought:

We are called to be ambassadors for Christ Jesus and His Kingdom.

An ambassador is an official representative of a country to another. As believers, we are Christ’s ambassadors, sent with the message of redemption in Christ Jesus to the World.

In what ways we are fulfilling our call?

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

The Ultimate Result of True Faith 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 Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word:

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4: 12- 13

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews%204:12-13

Thought:

The word of God is living, life changing, and dynamic as it works in us. It penetrates the core of our moral and spiritual life. The demands of God’s word require decisions. Let us listen to the word of God and apply it in our day to day walk.

True faith in Christ Jesus transforms our conduct, attitude, character, speech pattern, motives and actions resulting in a joyful life.

Stand firm in Christ
