“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.

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.

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?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg_zRWyypK8

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.

Stand Firm in Christ

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
