Led by the Holy-Spirit

Dear all,

May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. II Thes 3: 16

Word:

Led by the Holy-Spirit:

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.  For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. Galatians 5:16-18

Thought:

Being led by the Holy Spirit involves the desire to hear, the readiness to obey God’s Word, and the sensitivity to discern between your feelings and His promptings. Live each day controlled and guided by the Holy Spirit. Then the words of Christ will be in your mind, the love of Christ will be behind your actions, and the power of Christ will help you control your selfish desires.

Have a Victorious walk in Christ

How is our Spiritual walk with our LORD Jesus 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:

And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. Matthew 16:18

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%2016%3A18&version=NIV

Thought:

Jesus’ first words to Simon Peter were “Come, follow me” (Mark 1: 17). His last words to him were “Follow me” (John 21: 22). Every step of the way between those two challenges, Peter never failed to follow – even though he often stumbled.

God used Peter as the first great voice of the gospel during and after Pentecost.

How is our Spiritual walk with our LORD Jesus Christ? Let us make some self-analysis and come to the throne of grace today.

 

Stand firm in Christ

“Jesus Reinstates Peter”

Dear all,

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

Word: “Jesus Reinstates Peter

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”  Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you loveme?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.” The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. John 21: 15 – 17

Thought:

Jesus asked Peter three times if he loved him. The first time Jesus said, “Do you love me more than these? (Greekagape: self-sacrificial love). The second time, Jesus focused on peter alone and still used the word translated into Greek,agape. The third time, Jesus used the word translated into Greek, phileo (brotherly love) and asked, in effect, “Are you even my friend?

If Lord Jesus Christ asked us the same question today, what will be our response? If we do everything out of love we will never be disappointed. Let us run for the Lord with love.

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Roman 5:5

All to Jesus I surrender;

All to him I freely give;

I will ever love and trust him,

In his presence daily live.    Judson W. Van DeVenter, 1896

Truth Will Set You Free

Dear Friends,

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

Word:

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Mat 11:28-30.

Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Mat 8:31-32

Thought:

 Frustration to Fruitation

Jesus frees people from the bondage of sins. The rest that Jesus promises is love, healing and peace with God.

A true relationship with God changes meaningless, wearisome toil in to spiritual productivity and purpose.

  • True faith in Christ Jesus transforms our conduct, attitude, character, speech pattern, motives and actions.
  • No matter what the cost, let us follow the foot prints of Jesus.

Stand firm in Christ

Cost of True Christian Discipleship

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:        Luke 14: 25 – 33

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2014:25-33

  1. And if you do not carry your cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple.

Thought: Cost of True Christian Discipleship

LORD Jesus encouraged those who were superficial either to go deeper or to turn back. Following Christ Jesus means an absolute submission to do God’s will and to follow His foot prints.

  • True faith in Christ Jesus transforms our conduct, attitude, character, speech pattern, motives and actions.
  • No matter what the cost, let us follow the foot prints of Jesus.

Great Commission

Dear all,

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 within 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

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

Jesus Gives the Great Commission

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: Jesus Gives the Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%2028&version=NIV

Thought: God gave Jesus authority over heaven and earth. On the basis of that authority, Jesus told his disciples to make more disciples as they preached, baptized, and taught. With this same authority Jesus still commands us to tell others the Good News and make them disciples for the Kingdom.

Question: Are we doing our part in this great mission?

Stand firm in Christ
