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

Acts 1: 8 says, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the Earth.
Thought: No matter what ministry God has given to you, your highest reward and greatest joy should be those who come to believe in Christ Jesus and growing in HIM.
Be brave and courageous! Our future is secure in Christ Jesus because he knows all about it.

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.

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

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.

Twelve Ordinary Men

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: Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. Matthew 10: 1

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+10&version=NIV

Thought: God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called.

The twelve disciples were personally selected and called by Christ. Ordinary men-people like you and me – became the instrument by which Christ’s message was carried to the ends of the earth. No wonder they are such fascinating characters. – Adapted from John Macarthur’s Twelve Ordinary Men.

Never Underestimate God’s Love for us in Christ Jesus!

Dear all,

Be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus. II Timothy 2: 1

Word: Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1: 3

“And the LORD formed the man out of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.” Genesis 2: 7

Thought: The verb “formed” suggests the potter making a work of art in his skilled hands. The human body is indeed a work of art, an amazingly complex organism that only the wisdom of God could design and the power of God could create.

Elohim reveals His power by creating everything by merely speaking the Word. He created us by touching mud from the ground. This shows God’s love for mankind and He proved again His love by generously giving His son LORD Jesus Christ for us on the cross to make the path to salvation.

Never underestimate God’s love for us in Christ Jesus!

When God speaks, miracles happen.
