Acts 14:1 Paul and Barnabas spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews and Greeks believed. 2 But the Jews who refused to believe stirred up the other Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers. 3 So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to perform signs and wonders. 4 The people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews, others with the apostles. 5 There was a plot afoot among both Gentiles and Jews, together with their leaders, to mistreat them and stone them. 6 But they found out about it and fled to the Lycaonian cities of Lystra and Derbe and to the surrounding country,7 where they continued to preach the gospel………21 They preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch,22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said. ……26 From Attalia they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been committed to the grace of God for the work they had now completed.27 On arriving there, they gathered the church together and reported all that God had done through them and how he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 And they stayed there a long time with the disciples.
The gospel message spoken with love and truth has inherent power to transform the most depraved heart, present signs and wonders in the most unlikely vessels, in the most unlikely places. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. God’s love for you and I took Jesus Christ to the Cross. He died that you and I may have life and have it more abundantly.
Friends, with or without faith, there will be challenges. Life is a battle ground. There will always be something contending for your peace. However faith in the saving grace in Jesus Christ makes a lot of difference. In John 16:33 Jesus said “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Jesus Christ paid it all friends! Only in Him is hope, joy and everything that makes living life beautiful. Christ grace will make you to thread on your high places, go through storm but not drown, through the fire and it will not kindle upon you. Please if you do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ, now is the time to open your heart for Jesus to come in, He is always knocking.
Leap forward to the platform of grace and receive eternal life.

My past? Well, it is wiped off, erased, cleaned up with my saviors blood! How dare you taunt me with it? How dare you? My savior shed His blood for it. Yes, Jesus shed his blood to wipe it off record? And the false accusations?
Exodus 20:16 You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
How dare you, supposed Sister or the devils advocate? Ploy to distract me will not succeed. My face is set like a flint!!!!
The scripture state in Revelation 12:10-12, “Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. 11 They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. 12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”
Repent now, you judge of Israel! The blood of Jesus is available to wash away your filth. Purge your heart of all the filth spewing out every now and then. Do not let it consume you, Jesus is not willing that any should perish, but come to genuine repentance.
Dear Lord God Most High, have mercy on my friends and I in Jesus name. Lord cleanse us of all filthiness, renew a right spirit within us, endow our lips oh Lord with wisdom – the words that will sustain the weary. Let us not be a stumbling block to our brethren. Let our conduct bring many to your presence and the truth of your love in Jesus mighty name. Amen
What a joy to be in the presence of the Most High God?
What a privilege oh Lord to stand before you?
What an honor to be called your child?
You who created the heavens and the earth!
You created everything that was, is and is to come
Yet you love us and ours with an unconditional love
You became flesh, took up human likeness
You stood in our stead
On the cross at Calvary
Bearing the weight of our guilt
You nailed it to the cross
You! Lord Jesus gave us life
And more abundantly
Accept us Lord as a living sacrifice unto you
Let our life’s bring you glory
Let us be used Lord to shine forth your light
Let the light of your countenance shine in and through us
Let us shine in the dark
Let us glow in the light
Glory and honor oh Lord
Belongs to you
Now and forever more
