Get Some Rest!

Mark 6:31b “come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

Jesus sent his disciples out in twos to do exploits. They came back, gathering around Christ Jesus excitedly reporting all they had done and taught.

There were other people coming and going interrupting this meeting that Jesus felt it was good to take them aside to rest.

This says to me that in whatever we are doing, we do need to rest. As Christians, after every exploits which I believe is daily, it will be good to cultivate a time alone with Christ where we unburden, and take up his strength.

This weekend dear reader, find time to unwind, rest, breath deeper, and relax in His presence!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Recognized!

Jairus, one of the religious leaders recognized the grace and power upon the Carpenter’s Son, a Carpenter himself. Mark 5:22-24

Lord Jesus, let your glory fill our hearts, let your Spirit fill our soul, let US, the vessels you purchased, washed by your blood offer unto you continuously, sacrifices of praise.

Lord, let the religious begin to recognize your power within us. As your disciples Lord, may we be an extension of your love, grace and power.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

The Devil Knows!

Mark 3:11 Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of God.”

Friends, this should explain the animosity you get from some quarters. You see, the wicked can perceive the grace of God upon your life. They can see

Christ in you the hope of your gloryColossians 1:27

and this is not their wish for you, so they will antagonize you.

You wonder why your mere presence causes discomfort? This is why!

You my friend carry the very presence of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Like my sister said, a good morning to some people is an invitation to find fault with you. This ought not be so if Christ lives within!

Jesus said they, the wicked, the haters of anything good, and Christ-like will hate you and I. John 15:18-27. It is a guarantee. Don’t take it personal my friend, they will never like you and you do not have to care about it. You cannot please these and Christ at the same time. You have to choose who’s side you want to be!

Friends, be wise like a serpent and innocent as doves. Matthew 10:16. Ask for grace to keep your heart free from offenses. Do not stray from the path of righteousness. The Lord Himself watches over you!

Do not forget to pray for your perceived enemies. Matthew 5 :44

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Renewed!Restored!

New Wine In New Wine-Skins

Mark 2: 21 “No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. Otherwise, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse. 22 And no one pours new wine into old wine-skins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wine-skins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wine-skins.”

We must not continue in the same old ways! There must be a change, a turnaround, a retraction, an improvement, an upgrade of our character to reflect Christ in us, the hope of glory.

We have received of Christ, a character building mechanism in the person of the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

So now then, since we have received of the Lord newness of life, let us walk accordingly in line with who we are, a new creation, a renewed being, re-energized, refocused, re-validated, restored, and retracted from every form of unwholesome, unworthy endeavors that does not serve Christ’s purpose.

Declare with me friends, I am redeemed, I am set free from all sorts that binds, I am refreshed, I am renewed, I am re-energized to serve, to love, to honor the purpose of my creation and to fulfill every single dream so help me God.

As you have said in His ears, so will he do. Numbers 14:28

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Selfless Love! Interceding!

Mark 2:4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. 5. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, ” Son, your sins are forgiven.”

Oh friends, pray for the Lord to make you a friend, that will bring another’s matter before Jesus, even if you do not get to bring yours before him.

These friends have their own issues do you know? Of course, they do, for they are human, however, they put their issues aside to lower this man.

To lower down or up your friend before Jesus takes a lot of selfless love. It is this kind that can build up faith and transform lives as this man’s life was transformed. He became a reference point unto all eternity. And these gentlemen? They have crowns of gold and for sure their generation is still living even today.

This kind of love is not common, except bestowed by the Holy Spirit. May the Lord bestow such love on you and I in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Welcome July!

Presenting a transformed you to your world.

I believe being born again means reintroducing ourselves, our new being in Christ to the world.

When there is no difference between us and the world other than the words we speak, then we cannot impact the world, try as we may.

The world knows words are cheap.

However, acting out The Word, seeing a transformed being cannot be explained away! This is what can change the world

Romans 12:2 And be not conformed this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


Change the world one person at a time starting with You! Your good self!

Shalom!
