Not Unclean

Outward conformity is not the same as inner transformation. A person cannot be said to be truly clean if he is not clean within. Can you do a proper checking of your heart today?


There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. (Mark 7:15|KJV)


Oh Lord my God, please purge my heart of every uncleanness that may contaminate my body and my soul in Jesus name.

Give It ALL to Jesus


Give it all to God: your past regrets, your present problems, your future ambitions, your fears, dreams, weaknesses, habits, hurts, and hang-ups. Put Jesus Christ in the driverโ€™s seat of your life and take your hands off the steering wheel. Do not be afraid; nothing under His control can ever be out of control. – Rick Warren


Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfullyโ€ (1 Peter 5:7 AMP)

Don’t be Judgemental


It is your attitude in life that will determine your altitude. Break away from all self-imposed limitations and embargoes. Quit complaining


And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath showed me that I should not call any man common or unclean. (Acts 10:28|KJV)


Free yourself from procrastination. Just witness Christ. Donโ€™t be selective or judgmental. Christ died for all, even the worst sinner, so do not deny the people around you the privilege of hearing the message of salvation.

Get rid of sinfulness

God does not and cannot
work or walk among sinful people who have
not separated themselves unto Him. There
must be a distinction between the people of
the world and the people of God. Light and
darkness do not have anything in common;
the same thing goes for the children of God
and the children of this world.ย ย 
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1|KJV)


Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1|KJV)


It is the holiness of life that qualifies a man to
be His temple; for He cannot live in a
contaminated place. So, are you ready to live
as Godโ€™s temple? Then rid yourself of things
that can desecrate the temple of God, which
you are.

Surrender to Jesus?

If you are willing to believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and if you are willing to accept Him as your savior, then you are invited to pray this prayer with me:

Lord Jesus, I have been a sinner, please forgive me.
Thank You for dying on the cross for me and freeing me from sin.
Help us to live as You commanded us, “That we love one another as You have loved us.”
Please send me the Holy Spirit, and help me live by that Spirit.
I’m praying this in the name of Jesus Christ, amen

How you treat people

Relating with people based on their social status is an indication of faithlessness; those who know God treat people as God would treat them. – Author Unknown


For I know your manifold transgressions and your mighty sins.โ€ (Amos 5:12, KJV)


How do we treat the poor in our midst? How do we relate with someone whose lifestyle is characterised by truthfulness? Do we commend them or see them as going beyond bounds? Do we not demand bribe before rendering help to fellow believers? The truth is until the church begins to model the life of the kingdom to the society, unrighteousness will continue to thrive unabated.

Christianity


Going to church does not make you a Christian; nor does saying a prayer, going down an aisle, passing a catechism, telling yourself that you are, or trying to be a decent person. You can only be a Christian if Christ is in you, which can be tested and proven according to the scriptures.


And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. (Acts 11:26|KJV)


A Christianย  is a newย  man andย  a manย  withย  the mindย  of Christ notย  by name.

Hypocrisy

When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost. โ€“ Billy Graham


Woe to youโ€ฆfor ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.โ€ (Matthew 23:25, KJV)


You need to experience total victory from self and allow the Holy Spirit to guide your heart and speech

You can’t deceive God


You get faith by studying the Word. Study that Word until something in you “knows that you know” and that you do not just hope that you know. – Carrie Judd Montgomery


Will you say in Godโ€™s name what is not right, and put false words into His mouth? (Job.13:7)


Are you living a deceitful life or are you even being deceived? The only antidote to deceit is Godโ€™s Word. It is the true light that uncovers all forms of darkness. Study it.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

  • We have all
    sinned and deserve God’s judgment.
    God, the Father, sent His only Son to
    satisfy that judgment for those who
    believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and
    eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless
    life, loves us so much that He died for
    our sins, taking the punishment that we
    deserve, was buried, and rose from the
    dead according to the Bible. If you truly
    believe and trust this in your heart,
    receiving Jesus alone as your Savior,
    declaring, “Jesus is Lord,” you will be
    saved from judgment and spend
    eternity with God in heaven.
    What is your response?

Yes, today I am deciding to follow Jesus

Yes, I am already a follower of Jesus

I still have questions

Wisdom


Wisdom helps us see things beyond the present into the future. With wisdom you can weigh your options well and make a right choice. The only way to get hold of this wisdom is by fearing the Lord. To fear the Lord is to pay attention to His instructions and this will in turn earn you wisdom.


The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverbs 1:7|KJV)


As God’s children, our decisions should be guided by God’s wisdom, especially when it comes to forming associations. We should allow the wisdom of God to guide us in choosing friends and partners that will add value to our lives and not lead us astray. As you go out today, let God’s wisdom guide all your decisions.

Donโ€™t stay in that valley of despair and depression. Donโ€™t allow what people say to control you. You control your own destiny. Maybe everyone isnโ€™t going to be thrilled about you. But God is. You are who God created you to be. And God likes you just fine. Heโ€™s thrilled about you! Brenda Thomas

Faithfulness

It is not acceptable to the Lord for anyone to be unfaithful, whether such a person is being watched or not. A Christian who is not faithful does not belong to the Lord because if he or she is, then he or she would know that the Lord is, then he or she would know that the Lord sees everything. Nothing can be hidden from the Lord.


Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. (Matthew 24:45-46|KJV)



If unfaithfulness is found in anyone, it is a sin to be repented of and forsaken. Every day should be a day to be faithful.

God will reward everyone for what is done on earth, not just a particular time or day. Hence, it pays to be faithful in all things at all time.

The Race

So I run the race straight to the goal with purpose in every step. I am not like a boxer who misses his punches.- Apostle Paul.


For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: (2 Timothy 4:6-7|KJV)


Remember that everyone will finish the race one day. What shall your report be?

God made you a Champion ๐Ÿ†

What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more’ … Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: ‘You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine. Friedrich Nietzsche


Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.(1Timothy 4:12)

Welcome to your month of victory. Throughout this month, all your songs shall be ‘Thank you Lord’ Your testimony shall come and you will laugh last in Jesus’s name

God is Just

God is upright and faithful

God is a just God. He deals with people with equity; He is not partial in His judgment. He allows both the wicked and the righteous to continue in their deeds and then rewards each accordingly.



When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly. (Psalms 75:2|KJV)





As you go out today, live with the consciousness that God is watching whatever you do โ€“ good or bad.

The psalmist reminded the wicked of the fact that God holds in His hands a cup full of His wrath and it is meant for those who do wickedly (Psalm 75:8).

God does not exalt His mercy at the expense of His justice. And in order to maintain His justice, all sin without exception must be punished.

God’s Hedge


There is a natural hedge of protection around God’s people, which can only be removed by them. Yes, you are the only one who can remove that hedge through sin. Even Satan does not have power to remove it.


I from now on will also not drive out from before them any of the nations which Joshua left when he died. (Judges 2:21)


To keep God’s hedge around you, you need to keep a constant fellowship with Him through the spiritual disciplines of prayer, Bible study, holy living, and doing His will.

The Scripture says, “…whoever breaks an hedge the serpent shall bite him” (Ecclesiastes 10:8). Unforgiveness, backsliding, disobedience can make us lose God’s protection around us, and it is a dangerous thing to lose it.

The fullness of God


The mystery of Godโ€™s love will not be a mystery if we know all the answers. โ€“ Billy Grahamย 


And to know this love that surpasses knowledge โ€” that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:19 NIV)


As a child of God, you must always bear it in mind that God has placed you in His kingdom for a purpose; you are expected to be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

The Day of Joy

Every man on earth desires joy, not sadness. We all detect sorrow. A joyous heart rejoices and feel good. But joy that is not from Jesus remains transient.

To have a joyous faith, you need a real encounter with Jesus. You need to admit where you have fallen short of God’s expectations.



A Prayer of David. Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy. Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee. Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily. (Psalms 86:1-3KJV)



As you celebrate the newness of God’s faithfulness in life today, may the Lord cause a great shaking in heavens and on earth for your favour. You are blessed.

Abiding in Christ

Oh, that you would come and begin simply to listen to His Word and to ask only the one question: Does He really mean that I should abide in Him?

By faith you became partakers of the initial grace; by that same faith you can enjoy the continuous grace of abiding in Him. Andrew Murray

Favour of God

It is the favour of God that announces a man

Without the favour of God, it will be impossible to go far in life. His favour separate and move you from the ordinary to the extraordinary

Joel Osteen says “You don’t need everyone to help you. You just need one touch of favour, and you will accomplish in a split second what could have taken your whole lifetime”


A Prayer of David. Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy. Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee. Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily. (Psalms 86:1-3KJV)

Do you desire the favour of God? Then you have to trust Him and obey His commandments, all will go well with you.


As from today, everywhere you go, the favour of God will be evident in your life. Amen

Prayer of humility

God surely listens, understands and knows the hopes and fears you keep in your heart. For when you trust in His love, miracles happen! – Anonymous

Humility makes us persist in prayer because we know that there is no help elsewhere. God wants you to come to Him as you are, without any pretence

The Powerful blood of Jesus

Today’s ๐Ÿž Bread

By His death He destroyed the power of death on our behalf so that all who accept Him as Lord and Saviour will be free from the fear of death. Since Christ has won the battle for you, you need not fear Satan anymore.


Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death โ€“ that is, the devil -โ€. (Hebrews 2:14)


There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Are you in Christ?

Worshiping in Faith

Today’s ๐Ÿž Bread

Singing faith has to do with rejoicing to declare the greatness of God.

Praising and worshiping the Almighty comes from such a faith even when oneโ€™s expectation has not been sighted. It is obvious that wherever a singing faith operates, God Himself is provoked to prove that He is God.


Sing, O heavens, for the LORD has done this wonderful thing. (Isaiah 44:23, NIV)


You can boost the singing faith in you today. Build up such a faith, regardless of intimidations, lack, storms of life around you, and frustrate the token of liars, make diviners mad and confound the wise.

The blood of Jesus cleanses from all sin

The deepest part of a man’s heart is too shallow to comprehend the depth of God’s love.โ€ Anonymous


And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. (Exodus 34:6-7|KJV)


Ask the Lord to forgive, and cleanse you with the blood of Jesus that was shed for your sins on the cross of Calvary. Receive grace for a new life that is free from sins in Jesus’ name.ย 

Repent and be saved

Today’s ๐Ÿž Bread

God is a faithful and merciful God. Whenever people genuinely turn away from their evil ways, He is always willing to forgive them.


And God saw their works that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.โ€ (Jonah 3:10, NIV)


In Christ there is limitless forgiveness of our sins. There is always joy in heaven over a sinner that repents

It is a great disaster to die a sinner, ask for the mercy of God to cleanse you of your sins today.

Remember He sent His begotten Son to pay the price for our sins and transgressions. John 3:16

Pray this short prayer with me; Lord Jesus, i realised i have sinned and come short of Your glory, please forgive me of all my secret sins, let my name be written in the book of life, thank you Jesus for saving me. Amen

Serving God Faithfully

Today’s ๐Ÿž Bread

Serving God with a pure heart


You can no longer continue to serve God with an unstable or a double mind. God demands a practical Christian service based on His own terms, not yours. His terms are that you serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul.


And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, (Deuteronomy 10:12|KJV)


Ask for the grace to serve God faithfully and wholeheartedly.

Tongue

Today’s ๐Ÿž Bread

Watch your tongue


The point you need to know as a child of God is that though others may misuse their tongue, you cannot afford to. This is because you belong to Christ, thus everything you do must be to His glory.


Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.โ€ (James 3:5, NIV)



As you go out today, decide in your heart that whatever will come out of your mouth will bring glory to God, and bless people around you.

You are a winner, in Jesusโ€™ name

JESUS PAID THE PRICE WE COULD NOT PAY

Jesus my SAVIOUR


The price of our redemption was high.
We never could have redeemed
ourselves with corruptible things such
as silver and gold. Only through the
shed blood and broken body of Jesus
Christ could eternal life be obtained for
us.
Yes, The price was high, but Jesus paid it all!
Image
Jesus was born into this world with a mission:
He was born to die. Jesus’ death on the Cross
was not only divinely appointed, it was
necessary, for a great price had to be paid to
redeem us from sin.
In the natural, thinking about death makes
us uncomfortable. Why? Because we weren’t
created to die; we were created to live
eternally. But when Adam disobeyed God,
death entered the world (Rom 5:12). So God
sent Jesus to die on the Cross to restore us to
life.
While Jesus was on the earth, He kept the
Law and boldly proclaimed the Gospel, yet
He still had to suffer and die. Jesus’ death
could be seen as the greatest injustice ever
known to mankind. He didn’t deserve to die;
He died because, as Isaiah said, “the Lord
laid on Him the iniquity of us all” (Isa. 53:6).
Jesus endured the agony of the Cross so you
and I could be washed clean and set free
from sin.
Second Corinthians 5:21 tells us what Jesus
suffered on the Cross for us: ” For He HATH
MADE HIM TO BE SIN FOR US, who knew
no sin; that we might be made the
righteousness of God in him. ” I don’t
know that we could ever fathom the depth of
those words, but I thank God for them!
Jesus never sinned, yet He became a sin
offering for us and died a sinner’s death.
When Jesus lived on the earth. crosses were
used for capital punishment of the most
wicked criminals. But because of Calvary, we
as believers can look at the Cross in the light
of God’s Word through the eye of faith. And
instead of seeing a hideous instrument of
penalty and punishment for crime, we behold
a beautiful, visible symbol of God’s great love
for us!

Saved by His precious blood


The Cross does represent God’s wrath and
punishment for sin, but it also proclaims His
love for the world. Someone might say,
“That’s a paradox! The Cross can’t stand for
both punishment and love at the same time!”
But it does and it always will! Out of love for
us, Jesus bore the punishment for our sin.
Jesus paid the price that we could not pay.
There is nothing we could have ever done to
gain citizenship in Heaven. But because
Jesus Christ became our substitute on the
Cross at Calvary, we who believe in Him have
been brought into the Kingdom of Heaven
and loosed from the chains of sin, sickness,
poverty, and spiritual death!
What happened on the Cross is a reality. It’s
not a myth or a fairy tale, as some people
would like us to believe. The Cross stand in
the midst of human history as a warning to
those who refuse to believe the Word of God.
It also stands as a blessing to those who
recognize it as the supreme revelation of
God’s grace.
When God looked down from “Heaven’s
Courtroom” at our sinful state, we didn’t
receive justice; we received grace and
mercy. If we had received justice, we would
have paid the price instead of Jesus’ paying
it.
In earthly courtrooms, many people stand
before a judge and throw themselves on the
mercy of the court. The judge can either be
lenient and show them mercy, or he can be
severe and sentence them to the fullest
extent of the law. The out come depends on
the judge presiding over the case.
I thanks God that I can stand unafraid before
the Judge of all mankind, because He has
already extended mercy to me! Because I
have accepted that mercy, I now legally
stand before Him pure and clean by the
blood of Jesus.
Some people want to wait until Judgement
Day to ask for God’s mercy. But right now is
the time for them to accept the offer of
mercy that God has extended. Then they can
know where they will spend eternity before
they ever stand before His throne.
God showed you mercy when He offered you
eternal life through Christ’s death on the
Cross. I’m not saying that your body received
eternal life; it’s the real you — your spirit —
who received eternal life.
The moment you accept the shed blood and
broken body of Jesus Christ as atonement for
your sins, you become a new creature in
Christ; you pass from death unto life (1 John
3:14)
You’ll still look the same way you did before
you accepted Christ because your salvation
has nothing to do with your physical body.
However, it has everything to do with the
real man who lives on the inside. The Apostle
Paul said it this way: “I have been crucified
with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ
lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live
by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and
GAVE HIMSELF FOR ME” (Gal. 2:20 NIV).
We can live eternally because Jesus bore our
sins when He laid down His life for us (John
10:11,15). To better understand the
significance of the transferral that took place
on the Cross, we should go back and study
what the prophet Isaiah had to say about it.
First, let’s look at how Isaiah described the
glory of Jesus’ birth.
Isaiah 9:6
For to us a child is born, to us a son is
give, and the government will be on his
shoulders. And he will be called
Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Now contrast Isaiah’s account of Jesus’ birth
with his graphic description of Jesus’ death.
Isaiah understood that man faced the vexing
problem os sin, and he understood that God
was going to send the Messiah. But he also
received a revelation that the Messiah would
become the sin offering for mankind. In
Isaiah 53, he spoke of Jesus’ agony and
crucifixion as if the coming events had
already happened.
Isaiah 53:3-6
3 He has despised and rejected by men.
a man of sorrows, and familiar with
suffering. Like one from whom men hide
their faces he was despised, and we
esteemed him not.
4 Surely he took up our infirmities and
carried our sorrows, yet we considered
him stricken by God, smitten by him,
and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our
transgressions, he was crushed for our
iniquities; the punishment that brought
us peace was upon him, and by his
wounds we are healed.
6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and THE LORD HAS LAID ON HIM THE
INIQUITY OF US ALL.
Isaiah’s prophecy tells us that our sins were
laid upon or transferred to Jesus. That
glorious transferral was reflected in the
symbolic exchange that took place every
year on the Day of Atonement. In the Book of
Leviticus, God gave Aaron, God’s anointed
priest, specific instructions regarding the
ceremonial atonement for the sins of the
Israelites on that day.
Aaron would select two goats and present
them before the Lord at the entrance to the
Tent of Meeting. Then he cast lots for the two
goats — one for the Lord and the other for the
scapegoat. The goat whose lot fell to the Lord
was sacrificed as the sin offering. The other
goat, the scapegoat, was kept alive to make
atonement for the people by symbolically
taking away their sins. (Lev. 16:7-10).
The goats that were selected had to be free
of any kind of blemish or defect. The priests
could never offer to the Lord a sacrifice that
was imperfect. The goat for the sin offering
was slain, and its blood was sprinkled on the
mercy seat and the altar. The body of the
goat was then burned outside the camp.
Next, the priest laid his hands on the
scapegoat and confessed over it the sins of
the Israelites, laying the people’s guilt on the
scapegoat. Then the scapegoat was led away
and turned loose in the desert, removing the
sins of the Israel from their camp.
The Israelites had to go through that ritual
every year to atone for their sins. But, thank
God, at the proper time there came a
spotless Lamb! This Lamb was perfect
because He did not come from the loins of a
man. Through the Holy Spirit, Many
conceived, and the perfect sacrificial Lamb
came into the earth (see Luke 1:26-35)
Over the years, the blood of many bulls,
lambs, and goats was shed to cover sin. But
finally, once and for all, the blood of the
Lamb of God was shed for the remission of
sin (Matt. 26:28)! Jesus Christ became our
sin offering and our scapegoat! Today we can
enjoy God’s Presence and His peace because
Jesus took our iniquity away from us (John
1:29). Jesus chose to become the supreme
sacrifice by dying on the Cross so that we
could have life and have it more abundantly!
I realize it’s difficult to fully comprehend all
there is to know about the price Jesus paid
for us. But thank God that Jesus was willing
to pay the price!
What’s even more difficult for us to
understand is the kind of love that compelled
God to sacrifice the life of His Son for us. God
so loved the world that He gave His only
begotten Son, that you and I might believe in
Him and receive eternal life (John 3:16).
Thank God for the Cross! Thank God for the
Lamb who was slain! Thank God for His great
plan of redemption!
I dare say we will not have the full
understanding of what happened as a result
of the shed blood and broken body of Jesus
Christ until we arrive in Heaven and see for
ourselves what the Apostle John saw in a
vision on the isle of Patmos.
Revelation 7:9-10
9 After this I looked and there before
me was a great multitude that no one
could count, from every nation, tribe,
people and language, standing before
the throne and in front of the Lamb.
They were wearing white robes and
were holding palm branches in their
hands.
10 And they cried out in a loud voice:
“Salvation belongs to our God, who sits
on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
I belive that we will only begin to fully
comprehend the magnitude of God’s love
and forgiving power when we stand with
people from every nation and tongue before
His throne. With the Lamb of God seated at
His right hand. Only then will we begin to
gain a full appreciation of the great price
Jesus paid.
The goat whose blood was shed on the Day
of Atonement could never come back to life,
and the scapegoat was turned loose in the
desert, never to be seen again. But the
sacrificial Lamb of God lives forevermore!
As Jesus hung on the Cross, blood flowed
from the stripes on His back. Blood flowed
from His head, pricked by the crown of
thorns, and from His hands and feet, pierced
by the cruel nails. The Jesus looked toward
Heaven and said, “It is finished.” His head
sunk to His chest, and He died (John 19:30).
The curtain in the temple that separated the
Holy of Holies from the Holy Place was torn in
two from top to bottom (Matt. 27:51; Mark
15:38).
Then Jesus’ friends took His broken body off
the Cross and placed Him in the tomb. But on
the third morning, Jesus Himself came forth
from the tomb alive with the keys of death,
hell, and the grave.
Today we celebrate the fact that Jesus took
our place on the Cross. To some, the Cross is
a hideous object of disgrace. But to the
children of God, it is a precious reminder of
God’s mercy and love, because it was there
that Jesus’ blood flowed, and the price for the
remission of sin was paid.
Through the blood of Jesus, we are set free
from sin and can receive abundant life,
health, and prosperity. No other blood, no
other lamb, and no other offering for sin
could have provided that for us. Now we can
rejoice, knowing that all the blessings God
has promised in His Word are available to us
— because Jesus paid the price we could not
pay!

Salvation

Today’s ๐Ÿž Bread

Repent now and be saved


It is time to truly repent, make a U-turn so that there would be an outburst of joy in heaven on your account. May your life not be the reason for heaven to sorrow.


Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till, she find it? And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbors together,,,, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost. Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. (Luke 15:8-10|KJV)


A repentant sinner adds value to the kingdom of God, and heaven could not but rejoice.

Be Perfect

A person, seeking to be perfect, will always strive to mature in Christ. When he/she does any wrong, he/she gives no excuse; rather he/she confesses, apologises, repents and
moves on to do that which is right in the sight of God.


โ€œBe perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:48, NIV)


As believers we must strive to grow into the full stature of Christ.

No one is as wise as God. It does not make sense struggling with Him. Anytime you are sure it is God speaking and giving direction, the best is to surrender even if it seems unreasonable to you. It may be difficult and painful, but if it is God, His grace is always sufficient.

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom


Loving God has to do with
reverencing Him. Our love for God is
demonstrated by how much we fear Him.
God is interested in the fact that we fear
(reverence) Him and obey His Word.


โ€œAnd Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. (Exodus 20:20|KJV)


Do you fear God? Do you
hallow His Name and Word? Or, do you take
His instructions for granted? Note that God
will always test your heart to see if you will
fear and obey Him. It is in your own interest
to fear God.

Gratitude is not only what we say, but how we act. How we treat the gifts we have received is usually a reflection of how thankful we are for the gifts.

Every time somebody wrongs you, every time somebody sins against you, make the decision to immediately forgive them, between you and God. You say, you donโ€™t understand. This person doesnโ€™t deserve to be forgiven. This person abused me all my life. This person nearly destroyed me. Let me ask this. Did Jesus forgive your sins? Does He continue to forgive your sins? Will He continue to forgive your sins in the future?


โ€œSo shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. (Genesis 50:17|KJV)

Contemporary Christians know how to pray hard; fast for days and weep when God has not answered their prayers. But when the Lord answers, they rarely give thanks. Some give thanks briefly and begin to present other requests. This is why we have several prayer centres rather than thanksgiving centres today.

Titanic

The Titanic was presumed to be the largest, safest
and strongest luxury ship in the world before it embarked on its disastrous maiden voyage in April 1912.
All kinds of people were welcomed on the ship for
its first voyage.

Titanic

The rich, the famous, the elite, women, children, families and staff of the ship were all happy to be on board. It was billed to be the ship that could not sink, but it did sink on its first journey from Southampton to New York. This was one of the greatest tragedies of all time.


After the ship sank, two lists were presented at the
offices of The White Star Company (the company which built the Titanic). The list was simple. It had only two sections: โ€˜LOSTโ€™ and โ€˜SAVEDโ€™.
People came to read these lists to find out if their
loved ones had survived. Interestingly, before the
journey so many things were important. Whether they worked on the ship or were on vacation? Whether they were rich or poor. Whether they were millionaires or peasants. Whether they were stockbrokers or not. Whether they were in first class or economy class.
Whether they were men or women. Whether they
had a lot of luggage or not.


But after the sinking of the Titanic none of these things mattered anymore. Only one thing mattered- whether they were saved or lost.
Dear friend that is how Eternity will be.
A time will come when none of the things we have on this earth will matter. A time will come when it will not matter whether you are a man or a woman! A time will come when it will not matter whether you are rich or poor!


What will matter is whether you are โ€˜LOSTโ€™ or โ€˜SAVEDโ€™ on the day you die and meet your creator! GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS TODAY! AND IF YOU ALREADY HAVE,LIVE FOR HIM!!!!

BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY
But understand this, that in the last days
there will come times of difficulty. For people
will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud,
arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their
parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless,
unappeasable, slanderous, without self-
control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous,
reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of
pleasure rather than lovers of God, having
the appearance of godliness, but denying its
power. Avoid such people.(2 Timothy 3:1-5)

There is something about those quiet
morning hours before the hustle and bustle
of the day that is so special, when it is just

and in spending time in His word that I find
strength for the day, strength to meet the
trials and whatever else the day may hold. Elyssa Sims

I imagine that all of us would agree that this
commandmentโ€”to thank God at all times for
all thingsโ€”is perhaps the hardest in all of the
Bible to practice. But it is the secret to a
happy and productive life. Adrian Roger

โ€œRejoice always, pray continually, give
thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s
will for you in Christ Jesus.(1Thess.5:16-18)

Beware of Idleness

Since laziness and idleness go hand in hand you have to beware so that you will not be idle. Get yourself busy at all times with fruitful/productive things that can improve your life and your relationship with your Creator.

Paul sounded the warning in his epistle to the Thessalonians that they should stay away from any brother/sister who is leading a life of idleness or walking in idleness and not in accordance with the tradition received from him 2 Thessalonians 3: 6. Brothers and sisters, keep away from all the so-called believers who live idle lives and donโ€™t follow the doctrines of the Bible. Most especially, those who are slack in the performance of their duties, plus those who avoid, neglect or evade their responsibilities. _What does this says to me and you?_

At this period of time, seek God, determine to know more of Him, stay connected to the Master, don’t do what the unbelievers do.

This is the time to build a good relationship with God.

Since the beginning of this compulsory holiday, many have deviated from the path of righteousness, they now join the world to do evil and commit sin. If care is not taken, social media will lead many astray.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, the end near, be WATCHFUL .

In hard times, part of trusting God is being
willing to do what needs to be done,
especially if one has a spouse, a family or
people depending on them. God is faithful
and the ultimate multi-tasker. He makes
executive decisions, so to speak, and takes
appropriate actions on those decisions. He is
reliable, punctual, and trustworthy. GOd
never lies. Pete Miller

know I’ve felt that way. Does God seem
to be blessing everyone except you? Do
your expectations of God seem to meet
with cold indifference from Him? Do
you find yourself asking “What is God
doing?” and “What’s going on here?” If
your answer is “yes,” then rejoice,
because you are at the edge of a
miracle! You are on the verge of a
breakthrough! Don’t give up now your

BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY
โ€œBut don’t just listen to God’s word. You must
do what it says. Otherwise, you are only
fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the
word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at
your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk
away, and forget what you look like. But if
you look carefully into the perfect law that
sets you free, and if you do what it says and
don’t forget what you heard, then God will
bless you for doing it. (James.1:22-25 NLT)
