When You Are Sought After! Seek After!

Mark 1:37 And when they found Him, they exclaimed; “Everyone is looking for you!”

38 Jesus replied, ” Let us go somewhere else – to the nearby villages- so I can preach there also. That is why I have come”.

39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.

Again here, like in Verse 22, when Christ Jesus was been sought after, he went seeking for who to impact. He new He had to touch many others, He knew he was a conduit of love, kindness, grace, and everything good, most importantly, Salvation!

Friends, we are a conduit of everything we have received, we must keep pouring out grace to remain fresh or else we become stale and loose touch with the purpose for which we have been called.

I wonder where you and I have stopped because we are presently sought after, and we have limited the grace bestowed by Christ to be His extension to the whole world.

This must be why He gave the charge when He was finally leaving us in Matthew 28:19 -20

“”Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age”

I pray Lord for the grace to obey, to seek after, to be an extension of you to the “nearby villages”

May we all as beholding Of Christ reach out to our world – those nearest to us with the virtues we already have.

Shalom! Shalom!

Turn Away From Evil!

The blood of Jesus cleanses from all unrighteousness, making you and I sinless and joint heirs with Christ Jesus. We are brand new, born again and complete in Him, nothing missing. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Friends, the fact still remains that some will taste that the Lord is good and will still go after the desires of their flesh. I want you to know that it is a terrible thing to neglect such a great gift given by the blood of Jesus Christ – The Salvation of your soul and still rebel against that which is of His great pleasure. Disaster will fall upon the rebellious -everyone seeking after his own ways and not the Lord’s.

Jeremiah 5:2 Though they say, ‘As the Lord lives,’ Surely they swear falsely.”O Lord, are not Your eyes on the truth? You have stricken them, but they have not grieved; You have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder than rock; they have refused to return. Therefore I said, “Surely these are poor. They are foolish; for they do not know the way of the Lord, the judgment of their God. I will go to the great men and speak to them, For they have known the way of the Lord, The judgment of their God.” But these have altogether broken the yoke and burst the bonds.

repentJeremiah 8: Why has this people slidden back, Jerusalem, in a perpetual backsliding? They hold fast to deceit, they refuse to return.I listened and heard, but they do not speak aright. No man repented of his wickedness, saying, ‘What have I done?’  Everyone turned to his own course, as the horse rushes into the battle. 7 “Even the stork in the heavens knows her appointed times; and the turtledove, the swift, and the swallow observe the time of their coming. But My people do not know the judgment of the Lord“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; So what wisdom do they have? 10 Therefore I will give their wives to others, and their fields to those who will inherit them; because from the least even to the greatest everyone is given to covetousness; From the prophet even to the priest, everyone deals falsely. 11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace!’ When there is no peace.

Hosea 11:7 My people are bent on backsliding from Me. Though they call to the Most High, None at all exalt Him. God in His infinite mercy is not willing that any should perish but to come to everlasting life. Repent therefore of your many sins and be cleansed. Examine your ways and make necessary correction today. Our Lord is a merciful God, He will show mercy!Hosea 14:4“I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely, For My anger has turned away from him.

2 Corinthians 7:10 Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 11 See what this godly sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, what readiness to see justice done.

Most High God we thank you for your faithfulness. Thank you Jesus Christ for the ultimate sacrifice on Calvary’s tree. That sacrifice is what enables us to come to the throne of grace to receive mercy even right now. For everyone of us that have lightly esteemed what you wrought on our behalf and for us, we ask for mercy Lord, forgive us, our unbelief, doubt, disobedience, rebellion, and the desire to chart our own course away from you. We repent today Lord Jesus and ask thy will be done in our lives. In every way that we have hindered your move in the midst of your chosen one, Lord forgive us. We yield ourselves to your will, have your way Holy Spirit, move us to will and to act in order to fulfill your good pleasure in US. Thank you Lord for loving us even in our unfaithfulness. We bless your Holy Name oh Lord, be  magnified, for in Jesus Christ name we pray. Amen!

Shalom! Shalom!
