Dedication And Re-dedication! Are You In?

The invitation has been sent. Have you received yours, my friends? Here it is!

Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Don’t tell me you don’t have any burdens for that would be a lie! Yes, and that my friend is a burden! Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. There is need to dedicate your life to Jesus Christ this moment.

truth gets enemies

Are you in the faith? There is a need for the rededication of our lives to the Lord. 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified. But I trust that you will know that we are not disqualified.   Now I pray to God that you do no evil, not that we should appear approved, but that you should do what is honorable, though we may seem disqualified. For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 

Matthew 28:16 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Dullness In Hearing! Seeing Heart!

cslewisbbbAs a child of God, be it a prophet, teacher, evangelist, encourager, etc, our familiarity with The Word, our “knowing” of the things of God, the mind of God, our age and the likes often and may cause us to have “dullness” of hearing, “weakness” in our eyes like Eli had in 1 Samuel 3. Yet God in His infinite mercy and love makes provision for us. He sent Samuel to Eli’s household and has sent His Holy Spirit to us in this end time as Christ promised in John 14:15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 1And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth.  

 

To use today’s word, God gave us a conscience, to nudge, prick and commune with us amongst all others. Are we listening, or is our conscience seared as in 1 Timothy 4: 1-2?  Friends, examine yourself, examine your ways!!!! Romans 2: 13 For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. 14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law.15 They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.)16 This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.

Father, we ask in Jesus mighty name that you will recreate in us a right spirit, may your Holy Spirit convict us of our sins bringing about repentance, may our hearts that have been seared receive life, may your truth take root in our minds, may we be quickened by your Holy Spirit to live right before you, holding unto faith and a good conscience in Christ Jesus mighty name we pray. We magnify your name for rekindling your fire within us. Thank you Father for speedy answers in Jesus name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
