The Aroma of Christ Jesus

Dear all,

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

Word:

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. II Cor 2: 14 -15

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

When we have the aroma of Christ Jesus in our heart, we can’t hide the fragrance.

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.

Clear Vision to See Things the Way LORD Jesus sees them

Dear all,

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

1 Corinthians 1: 3

Word: Clear Vision to See Things the way LORD Jesus sees them

Why did Jesus touch the man a second time before he could see?

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+8%3A22+-+26&version=NIV

This miracle was not difficult for Jesus, but he chose to do it in stages. Jesus asked him  “Can you see anything now?”  “Yes”, he said, “I see people, but I can’t see them very clearly. They look like trees walking around.” Interestingly, this healed man expressed his true status to LORD Jesus.

Are we healed completely by the healing power of LORD Jesus or still do we have any inner wounds? If our answer is yes, we need to pray for his “second healing touch” in our hearts.

Are we able to see souls with his eyes or are we still seeing them like trees walking around?

Mark 8: 25 says that, Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again and his eyes were opened. His sight was completely restored, and he could see everything clearly.

We need to understand God’s heart for the people and their souls. God created mankind as eternal beings.

Let us make a list of all of our unsaved colleagues and family members and pray for their salvation. I strongly believe that God is more than able to save their souls.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+3%3A20-21&version=NIV

One man Elijah prayed earnestly and God answered his prayers (James 5: 17). It is our responsibility to protect them with our true prayers like a fence around a new plant .

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+5%3A17&version=NKJV

How is our prayer 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. Let us do some self-analysis and make corrections wherever required.

Let us ask God to give a total restoration and a great revival for our spiritual eyes to focus clearly, to see the people and their souls like Him.

A backslider cannot pray and a prayer warrior cannot dwell in sin.

The Judge is Standing at the Door! 

Dear all,

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

1 Corinthians 1: 3

 Word:

Patience in Suffering

Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. Don’t grumble against one another, brothers and sisters, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door! Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.” Otherwise, you will be condemned.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=James+5%3A7-12&version=NIV

Thought:

The spiritual root system is the fundamental foundation of our growth in Christ Jesus. Remember to rely on Him for everything. His promises are kept for you and will come true in His time. May God give us the patience to plan according to His master blueprint and wait and receive His blessings. The key idea is trust and obeys to accomplish His vision in our life.

True Contentment

Dear all,

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

Word:

I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last, you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4: 10 – 13

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Philippians+4&version=NIV

Thought:

True contentment comes only when we submit ourselves to God and absolutely follow His plan. As we admit our failures and humbly seek to do God’s will, we find ourselves drawing closer to God. As we draw close to God, He will renew our Spiritual lives. Once we have renewed our mind in Christ Jesus, we will have a vision that was inscribed by our LORD Jesus on our hearts and minds to carry out His will without grumbling.

Stand Firm in Christ

Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

By Grace Vs No by Works – Faith Journey In Christ Jesus

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2Faith 12

Word:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2: 9 – 10.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+2%3A9-10&version=NIV

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit-fruit that will last – and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. John 15:16

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John+15%3A+16&version=NIV

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

We are God’s new creation and God continues to work in us to make us what He wants us to be. To do this God uses three tools.

  1. Word of God
  2. Prayer
  3. Suffering

As we read God’s Word, understand it, meditate on it, and feed on it, the Word goes to work in our lives to cleanse us and nourish us. As we pray, God’s Spirit works in us to release power. And as we suffer, the Spirit of God ministers to us. Suffering drives us back to the Word and prayer, and the cycle is repeated. Adapted from Warren W. Wiersbe’s Bible Commentary.

Doers Vs Hearers

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

Listening and Doing:

But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.

James 1: 22 – 25

It is important to listen to what God’s Word says, but it is much more important to obey it and to do what it says. We can measure the effectiveness of our Bible study time by the effect it has on our behavior and attitudes. Do you put into action what you have studied?

Matthew 7:24-27 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

The Two Foundations

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and [a]acts on them, [b]may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the [c]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not [d]act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 The rain fell, and the [e]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+7%3A24-27+&version=NASB

When a person is truly born again, he has the Spirit of God living within (Romans 8:9), and the Spirit enables him to know and do the Father’s will. God’s love in his heart (Rom 5:5) motivates him to obey God and serve others.

Obedience to God’s word – Evidence of true faith (James 2: 14).

 Pass it on! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!
