“When We have the Aroma of Christ Jesus We cannot hide it”.

Dear all,

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

Word:

For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14

Thought:

True believers have been transferred from darkness to light, from slavery to freedom, from guilt to forgiveness and from the power of Satan to the power of God.

Our conduct should reflect our new allegiance.

“When you have the Aroma of Christ Jesus you cannot hide it”.

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

God Wants to Walk with us before He Works through us

Dear all,

Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10

Word: Enoch Walked with God – Hebrews 11: 5-6 (NIV)

By faith Enoch was taken from this life so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith, it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Thought:

God wants to walk with us before He works through us. His ways are reflected in our thoughts, our actions, our motivations, and our life choices because we spend so much time with Him.

How is our faith life? Are we spending quality time in the presence of God every day?  I personally believe that nothing is more important than carrying the presence of God wherever He leads us. God has called us to fix our eyes on Jesus (Hebrews 12). Let us do some self-analysis and make corrections wherever required.

Quiet Convictions often Earn Long Term Respect

Dear all,

Grace and peace be to you in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Pet 1:2

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. Ephesians 1:3

Word:

As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him—  you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame. II Peter 2: 4-6.

Thought: Let us renew our vision and confidence in Christ.

The Characteristics of Christ – the Cornerstone, is completely trustworthy and precious to those who believe in Him.

Quiet convictions often earn long term respect.

God Reveals His Will in His Word

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

Plan Ahead:

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil. If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them. James 4: 13-17

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+4%3A13-17&version=NIV

Thought: The will of God comes from the heart of God. God reveals His will in His Word. Only when we are in His will can we be confident of tomorrow, for we know that He is leading us.

 But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. Psalms 33:11

Moving Forward

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:

Philippians 3:12-14

12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+3%3A12-14&version=NIV

 

Thought:

Paul said that his goal was to know Christ in a personal way, and to be all Christ had in mind for him. This goal took all of Paul’s energies, focus and time. We should not let anything take our eyes off our goal. Knowing Christ with the single-mindedness of an athlete in training we must lay aside everything harmful and forsake anything that may distract us from being effective and mission minded Christians.

THE LORD OF HOSTS IS WITH US

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 of God:

At the beginning of your supplications the command was issued, and I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed; so give heed to the message and gain understanding of the vision. Daniel 9: 23

Thought: Prayer – Always Pray and Don’t Give up! THE LORD OF HOSTS IS WITH US. Martin Luther rightly applied this title to LORD Jesus Christ in his Hymn”A Mighty Fortress of God.”

Did we in our own strength confide,

Our striving would be losing;

Were not the right Man on our side,

The Man of God’s own choosing:

Dost ask who that may be?

Christ Jesus, it is He;

Lord Sabaoth His Name,

From age to age the same,

And He must win the battle. – Martin Luther (1483-1546)

Confidence in Christ

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:

7 or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:7-9

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+12%3A7-9&version=NIV

Thought: Confidence in Christ means that LORD Jesus does “strange things I cannot always understand”. In addition, a sense of humility in knowing God realizing that there will always be more to learn from Him. The appropriate response to God is a heart of wonder and awe in light of His incomprhensible greatness.

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!
