Against The Work? No!

Whoever is not against us is for us. Mark 9:40

With all the talk about Christians supporting Kanye West and the likes, I wonder what main stream Christian clergy/authority are thinking.

We cannot deny that the Lord has used Kanye West as a medium to reach the very people the mainstream are supposed to have reached en-massed, but have not reached due to misappropriation of our priority.

Many should be reviewing the Works done in the name of Christ to actually see if it was for him rather than satisfying our own ego and maintaining status quo!

Every Bible believer should be happy as Jesus was happy when the disciples told him about someone driving out demons in Christ name in Mark 9:38 to which He responded, “Whoever is not against us is for us.”

Let us also intensify our works, The Lord’s Work to preach the Gospel to all nations and people!

In what way can you propagate the Gospel personally as an individual?

  • Share yourself/your God testimony with others
  • Be real with your struggles and triumphs and what difference having a relationship with Christ makes
  • Be genuine with your walk, don’t be two faced, walk the talk

Shalom!

His Cause! My Cause!

“The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.” 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it. Mark 9:31-32

The disciples did not understand what Jesus was alluding to, however, amongst themselves they were busy arguing about who is the greatest much like the competition and argument in Christian circle today.

So many disciple of the gospel today are not conscious of the season we are in, the handwriting on the wall written on walls all across the world seem not to mean anything to the Church establishment. Why am I of this opinion you may ask! How else can it be that we (The Church) are busy building structures, investing in esthetics, and bickering about the mundane, while souls in millions are going to decay even while they live?

We all want to be great, we want to be the first, be hailed, celebrated, feel important, fulfilled, but how can we be fulfilled while the very purpose for which we came into being and called forth goes to rut?

It is time for each and everyone, for we all have influence, not only the Pastors, preachers, bishops, but folks on the pews, mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts, grandparent, teachers, everyone saved by grace are to serve the cause of Christ Jesus. The first shall really be the last and the last shall be the first.

Leadership, influence is about serving a cause. As a wife and mother, sister, aunt and friend, I am called to be of service. I must always ask myself, “what can I do to ensure the future of my kids are pleasant? What does my friend, nephew, neice, or even co worker need? Am I available, willing and ready to serve? For my kids, I invest in their today, serve their need, guide and guard them so that they can be who God created them to be.

Leadership, position, motherhood, fatherhood is not just to be a title, it is a call to serve a cause much higher than yourself. I remember a time I was overwhelmed by life’s event and then a teenager I was serving was acting up. I was so overwhelmed that I cried unto the Lord. I said here is this gift you gave me to care for, what would you have me do! Please step in and guide my hands, emotions and everything to do it right and that was it. God showed up big time!

I knew all along that it was a call to serve, and acknowledging this before God invited Christ to work in me to will and to act in order for his good pleasure to be fulfilled in the situation – Philippians 2:13

Father help us to genuinely serve your cause in spirit and in truth. May we yearn and thirst for your cause – the salvation and well being of all souls you present all around us in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Proclaiming Good News

“When people realize it is the living God you are presenting and not some idol that makes them feel good, they are going to turn on you, even people in your own family.

There is a great irony here: proclaiming so much love, experiencing so much hate! But don’t quit.

Don’t cave in. It is all well worth it in the end. It is not success you are after in such times but survival.

Be survivors! Before you’ve run out of options, the Son of Man will have arrived.
