When you Fear God, you Fear Nothing Else!

Dear all,

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

Word: Life by the Spirit

(Jesus) I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10b

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him, we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8: 14-17

“The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else.” – Oswald Chambers

A.W. Tozer says that “A frightened world needs a fearless church.”

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.

Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

“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.

Christ Jesus is the Victor

Dear all,

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.

Thought Conditioners: God’s Clock doesn’t Function Like a Man’s Clock

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 of God:

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

Keep your conscience clear. 1 Peter 3: 16

You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. The grasslands of the wilderness overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing. Psalms 65: 11-13

A couple of thoughts:

  • God’s clock doesn’t function like a man’s clock.
  • Never underestimate the resurrected power of Christ Jesus in you. Retain the promises of Godin your consciousness. This will give you the strength to overcome every difficulty you are facing in this faith journey.
  • Be brave in Christ Jesus. Ask God to fill your heart with the confidence in Christ Jesus.
  • How often do we pour out our hearts to God? How often do you give him a specific request to answer?
  • True faith in Christ Jesus transforms our conduct, attitude, character, speech pattern, motives, and actions.
  • Motives are just as important as actions.
  • Quiet convictions often earn long term respect.
  • God’s opinion is important.
  • Remembering God’s faithfulness is worth a pause for reflection.
  • When God forgives our sins He totally forgets them.
  • Don’t stop trusting God just as you are ready to reach your goal.
  • Be corrected by God and become who God intended. Train your tongue to speak well!
  •        Are you a fan or a follower? No matter what the cost, let us follow the footprints of Jesus.

Today is the Day of Salvation

Dear Friends in Christ,

We wish you all a Christ-centered Christmas season. Remember Christ Jesus is the reason for this season!

Word:

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. Luke 21: 33-34

Thought: Are we caught up with materialism? Who/what is ruling our hearts?

If we replace Christ with anything else that becomes idol worship.

Our role model is Christ and He lived a humble and holy life. Do we have humbleness in our hearts?

Today is the day of Salvation. Turn to Jesus and He will change our hearts.

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

Be strong and glad!

Stand firm in Christ

Be Strong and Glad – Seek and Save

Dear all,

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

Word: “For unto us a child is born, unto us, a Son is given”. (Isaiah 9:6)

Thought: God sent us the light of the world 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.

To make ready a group of people to meet our LORD Jesus Christ.

Be strong and glad! Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Arise and Shine for Christ Jesus

Dear all,

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace and bless you as a channel of blessings.

Acts 14: 17 says “He sends rain and good crops and gives you food and joyful hearts”. 

Let us receive His blessings and share the blessings with many nations.

Thought:

True happiness is in Christ Jesus and it is not based on the things that we have. We cannot always choose what happens to us, but we can choose our attitude toward each situation. The secret to a joyful heart is filling our minds with thoughts that dwell on the things that are true and pure (Philip 4: 8). This was Paul’s secret as he faced imprisonment because of the Gospel of Christ Jesus and it can be ours as we face struggles in our daily life. Check your attitude. Examine, in the presence of God what we allow to enter our mind and what we choose to dwell on. We may need to make some positive changes. Seek to do what is right and walk humbly with the LORD Jesus Christ in this faith journey (Zephaniah 2: 3).

Let us be the Church (Romans 12:3-5) and be tentmakers like Aquila and Pricilla’s family (Acts 18:1-4; 18-20; 24-26). 

Arise and Shine for Christ Jesus
