Right Standing! Faith!

Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Mark 2:17

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Roman 3:23

For a fact, none of us is righteous on our own even after we have received Christ Jesus in our hearts. Our righteousness is like a garment that Christ gave us, for we take hold of Christ righteousness through faith.

Therefore, my friend, do not be puffed up, you and I were sinners saved by grace. We both were sick by nature and in deeds, but Christ Jesus saved us!

I must say here that our righteousness is obtained by faith, but must be maintained by choice. Stay rooted in The Word. Your very life depend on it

I thank God for that saving grace, for I can only imagine where I would be without it! Oh my, Lord please keep us in your presence ALWAYS!

Are you saved?
You!
And you!
Yes!

Do you have a relationship with the Lord Jesus? You can take up His righteousness, His right standing by acknowledging that you need His help today. He loves you anyways, why don’t you call on Him right now?

He will save you from those sins that easily befalls you. Talk to Him today, He will heal you!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Good Decision! Repentance!

 

Jeremiah 4:1 “If you will return, O Israel,” says the Lord“Return to Me; and if you will put away your abominations out of My sight, Then you shall not be moved. And you shall swear, ‘The Lord lives,’ In truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; the nations shall bless themselves in Him, and in Him they shall glory.”

 

LysaJames 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

15 Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.

Father in Jesus Christ Mighty Name, may I begin to make one decision after another that will bring me closer to you. I want to draw near to you more than before. Help me that I might see wondrous things in your law. Give sight to my eyes, quicken my heart after you more and more. Cleanse thou me from all filthiness in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom!

 

Ask Him In!

Friends, as you all know, every single human on this side of eternity has one or two issues. We are either just getting out of that valley, on mountain top, on plain ground, with our peace intact or not, in control or not. Life is full of challenges and this is the  more reason to enlist the help of Him who created and gave life.

You see, life will happen, there will be good times and bad times, and what makes the difference in how it affect us in the long run is who we have living inside of us. Times and chance happens to all men, both great and small, young and old. However, a life of faith in Jesus Christ keeps things in perspective!

Friends, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3;23, For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord – Romans 6:23. John 3:16 says ” For God so loved the world ( you and I) that He gave His only begotten Son, (Jesus Christ) that whoever believes in Him(Jesus) should not perish but have everlasting (eternal) life.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden,and I will give you rest – Matthew 11:28. Living life without faith in Jesus is a laborious journey filled with uncertainty. Jesus is inviting you and I! Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light – Matthew 11:29 -30

Will you come to Jesus today? Open your heart to him today and invite Him in. Trust God to give you perspective, for The Word says, Romans 10:8 what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

There is provision for living life effectively and efficiently here on earth towards eternity, will you embrace it today? Be born again!! Open up your hearts Jesus is calling you!

Shalom

Boasting In God!!!!

As-it-is-you-boast-inJeremiah 9:23 Thus says the Lord:

“Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom,
Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches;
24 But let him who glories glory in this,
That he understands and knows Me,
That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.
For in these I delight,” says the Lord.

25 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “that I will punish all who are circumcised with the uncircumcised— 26 Egypt, Judah, Edom, the people of Ammon, Moab, and all who are in the farthest corners, who dwell in the wilderness. For all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart.”

There are quite a lot of Us brethren that are so puffed up with our “suffering” for Christ, triumphs, victories, exploit and so on that we have forgotten that we are Vessels through which God makes His manifest power known. Our victories and successes have so much blinded us that we have become to share the glory with God.

Our hearts have become so calloused that we have become the alpha and the omega, all knowing, all seeing mini god!!!! Humble thou yourself now under the mighty hand of God. In your private space friends, is God enthroned?

Or have you and I gone off tangent, in darkness without an iota of consciousness. Are we subverting the work of God – carelessly speaking, acting and living in a way that unbelievers don’t really want to know the kind of God we say we serve. We preach and speak love but hatred and wickedness is our undergarment. Lord have mercy!!!!

God Almighty is Sovereign and rules in the affairs of men. Oh yes, we have mastered some things, we are intelligent and knowledgeable, self sufficient, self made, etc! Where is God in the equation of our lives? Is our hearts really circumcised? Or maybe it is riddled with wickedness, hatred, greed, envy, jealousy, deceit, pride – our nature before Christ found us.

Most High God we come to you today by the blood of Jesus Christ. Cleanse us, purify us and help us to see ourselves through your eyes. Our eyes have been blinded by the deceitfulness of sin.Wash us clean by the blood of Jesus Christ. Please Lord help us in Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen

We want you Lord to work in Us to will and to act in order for your good pleasure to be fulfilled in our lives. That we might be a sign and a wonder to this world of wickedness. We pray Lord that your light will shine through us to the uttermost part of the earth. Let our lifes, conduct and all bring others to the sheep fold in Christ Jesus name. May you open the eyes of our hearts to see wondrous things in your words Oh Lord in Jesus name. Amen.
