FORGIVE EVERYONE

*Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.* Luke 23:34

If Jesus forgave those who nailed Him to the cross, and if God forgives you and me, how can you withhold your forgiveness from someone else?  How can you withhold your forgiveness from yourself? If God says, “I forgive you,” then the only appropriate response is to say, “God, thank You. I don’t deserve it, but I accept it.  And to express my gratitude, I, in turn, forgive that person who has sinned against me.”

We forgive others, not because they deserve it, but because Jesus deserves it. The only reason we have to forgive is that He commands us to, and our obedience gives us opportunity to say to Him, “Thank You for forgiving me. I love You.”

 *Our forgiveness of others then becomes an act of worship that we would not enter into except for Who Jesus is and for the overwhelming debt of love we owe Jesus*

As you celebrate and remember the liberation Jesus brought to us by going to the cross, we have no moral right to hold up any grudge against anyone during and after this season.

Forgive your brother, as your Master has forgiven you ( Matthew 18:32-35)

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I come before you in the name of Jesus and i ask for grace to sincerely forgive all those who have hurt me in the past and even today. Please deliver me from hatred and bitterness and create in me a clean and loving heart in Jesus' name........ Amen🙏🏼

JESUS WANTS YOU TO FORGIVE OTHERS OF THEIR DEBTS TO YOU

JESUS PAID IT ALL

 *You have cast all my sins behind Your back.*
Isaiah 38:17

We shall never understand the extent of God’s love in Christ at the Cross until we understand that we shall never have to stand before the judgment of God for our sins.

All our sins, without exception were placed on Jesus Christ, and He took the judgment we deserve. He finished the work of redemption.

Billy Graham once told of an incidence that happened while crossing the North Atlantic in a ship he said "I looked out my porthole when I got up in the morning and saw one of the blackest clouds I had ever seen. I was certain that we were in for a terrible storm. I ordered my breakfast sent to my room and spoke to the steward about the storm." the steward replied “Oh, we’ve already come through that storm. It’s behind us.”

 *If we are believers in Jesus Christ* , we have already come through the storm of judgment.  It happened at the Cross. Don’t be bound by your guilt or your fears any more, *but realize that sin’s penalty has already been paid by Christ completely and fully.*

PRAYER: Almighty Father, i thank you for your son Jesus Christ whose sacrifice on the cross has relieved me of the punishment i deserve. Thank you Jesus.
Amen🙏🏼

JESUS ENDURED THE PAIN FOR YOUR SAKE.

TOP PRIORITY

 *He is able to establish you in accordance with my gospel, the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past, but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God.* Romans 16:25-26

The first priority of the Church is relating to Christ Himself. Beware of human plans, trending ideas and personal agendas. That’s not God’s agenda for the Church. Paul says in Romans 16:25, ‘ *Now to him who is able to establish you …’*

We don’t do the establishing, Christ does. As a result, the first priority of the Church is to know Christ, to bring people into an experiential knowledge of Him, to encourage people to relate directly to Him, so that He establishes us with roots in Himself, and fruit that express His presence and activity in us.

As a preacher, if you are not leading people to greater dependence on Christ, you are merely giving them a ‘to-do’ list to take home with them, or a bit of psychological advice that they can apply and make work themselves. And to that extent we have ceased to be functioning as a church and have become a ‘self-help’ club, although we do it ‘in the name of Jesus.’ At best, Christ may be the patron of our Christianity, but He is not its life and the content of its Gospel.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, please help me to keep Christ central as the head of your church and as the life of my very own life.... Amen🙏🏼

DEPEND TOTALLY ON JESUS CHRIST.

THE SAMARITANS

 *The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?”(For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)* John 4:9

The woman at the well was surprised that Jesus, a Jew, talked to her, a Samaritan. Her surprise stemmed from the fact that the Samaritans had been continually rejected by the Jews for so many years before Christ’s birth. He didn’t see her as a ‘Samaritan,’ but as a woman thirsting for a satisfaction she had searched for but not found.

Jesus offered her living water for which she would never thirst again. She took it and her life was so transformed that ‘many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony’ (John 4:39).

What is the definitive identity of people we meet? Is it their racial background? Their religious affiliation? Their past life? Or are they people with a deep thirst for God that may have expressed itself in many foolish ways in the past, leaving them more thirsty than ever?

Jesus knew a secret about this woman that you and I know about everyone we meet. He knew she was thirsty for a drink for which she would never thirst again. So He offered it to her and today He offers it to us.

 *See people as Jesus would see them and never deny them the living water.*

PRAYER: My Heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of Jesus. I pray that your Spirit will help me to continuously fellowship with your son Jesus....Amen

JESUS SACRIFICED HIS LIFE FOR YOU

EVIDENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

 *Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.*
Ephesians 5:18

Living daily in the fullness of the Spirit takes place on the same basis on which we received Him into our lives. Confessing our sin, acknowledging our need and placing continuing trust in Christ. It’s a day-by-day relationship of dependence and obedience.

In every reference to the filling of the Spirit in the Book of Acts and the epistles, it is interesting that something happens to the mouth. For example, on the day of Pentecost, ‘All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them’ (Acts 2:4).

Paul writes, ‘Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit’ (Ephesians 5:18). He then immediately says, ‘Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord’ (Ephesians 5:19).

Look up every reference to being full of the Spirit and you will discover something happens to the mouth. The best indication of what is going on in our hearts is what comes out of our mouths.

The gentleness, holiness and truthfulness of the Spirit will find expression in the gentleness, holiness and truthfulness of our speech. It’s the surest evidence
The fullness of the Holy Spirit will
change your speech.

What does your speech say about what is going on in your heart?

PRAYER: Almighty Father, please enable me to manifest the presence of the Holy Spirit in me in all that I do. In Jesus mighty name... Amen🙏🏼

WHAT ARE YOU WILLING TO DO FOR GOD'S KINGDOM

Wednesday, 30 May 2018

PAIN CAN LEAD TO PURPOSE.

* But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive*. Genesis 50:20

Joseph suffered from the hands of his own brothers . *He was sold, buried, lied against and imprisoned*. All these suffering was for a purpose.

Suffering is part of Christianity.
The moment you decide to follow Christ, there are two things you can't avoid. Suffering and Grace.
The enemy throw things at you to make you loose faith.

The devil tempted Job to the extent of taking the lives of his children. But remember there is no temptation that is taken you but such as is  common to man. There is a ministry in every suffering.

I have come to a realization in life that every great person has a story. God allowed it for a purpose.
*I have seen a great woman of God who ate from the dustbin but today she is feeding many people*.
I have seen a young man who lost the mother who provided for him and his siblings but now he is inspiring and teaching and raising young leaders.
I heard of a woman of God who was diagnosed of terminal cancer but now praying for people with chronic diseases and miracles are happening.
*There is a purpose in your pain*.

Your pain often reveals God's purpose for you.
*God never wastes hurt*. If you have gone through a hurt, God wants you to help other people going through the same.

Beloved I don't know what sort of pain you are going through. I will urge you to hold onto your faith. Dont give up on yourself.
*Jesus suffered so we might be free*

*THERE IS A PURPOSE IN YOUR PAIN*.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, please help me to stay strong in every challenging situation.
Help me to find the purpose in my pain.

JESUS IS WITH YOU IN THE BOAT

EXPECT PERSECUTION

 *Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.* 2 Timothy 3:12

A story is told of the British preacher John Wesley, who was riding along on his horse when he realized that several days had gone by, and he hadn’t suffered any persecution. For three days, not a brick or an egg had been thrown in his direction, which apparently was a common practice when Wesley would get up to preach. So he got off his horse and cried out, “Could it be that I have sinned, and I am backslidden?” Then he got down on his knees and asked God to show him if there was anything wrong in his life spiritually.

All the time he was praying, a man was watching and listening to all of this. He thought, “That preacher is crazy. I will teach him a lesson.” He picked up a brick and threw it at John Wesley, just missing his head but when Wesley saw the brick, he jumped up and said joyfully, “Thank God, everything is okay! I still have His presence.”

The devil will oppose us outwardly and try to stop us through persecution. But there is another way he will attack, and it is not very noticeable. He will whisper in our ear, “You are so powerful. You’re a man or woman of God. You are not supposed to be just a servant in the church. You are a great preacher. When you speak, your words resonate. You are so wonderful. You are so great.”

The devil knows that pride goes before a fall and that more people probably have been brought down by pride than by any other sin. He knows all about pride because it’s the very thing that brought him down as well.

The Bible tells us, “Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution” Are you living a godly life? Then get ready, because persecution will come your way as a follower of Jesus Christ.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, i humbly ask that your Spirit will uphold me in time of trials and persecution. In Jesus mighty name.... Amen.
