Life Through the Spirit

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Hope you are doing well.


Life Through the Spirit:

 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2 because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8: 1-2

Thought: Before we believed in Christ our nature was evil. Born-again Christians have a new nature in Christ. God has crucified the old nature (Romans 6:6) and replaced and replaced it with a new loving nature (Colossians 3: 9-10).

“Transformed souls impacting the campuses and the globe as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Hospitality to Strangers

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


Hebrews 13:1-2

Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing so some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

Matthew 25:43

I was a stranger, and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me


The author of Hebrews in the first reference urges the readers to show hospitality to even strangers.  Jesus also associates our treatment of strangers with our treatment of Him.  How many times are we quick to ignore strangers and turn the other way? Is that the way we would want to treat Jesus?


Lord, we pray that you work on our hearts to be loving and hospitable to be people around us. Amen.

Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


Romans 3:23

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 6:1-2

What should we say then? Should we continue to sin so that God’s kindness will increase?  That’s unthinkable! As far as sin is concerned, we have died. So how can we still live under sin’s influence?


It can sometimes be confusing knowing sin separates us from God, but at the same time knowing we have a sinful nature. How, then, can we reconcile with Him? Jesus died for our sins and paid the price, so we don’t face its consequences, when we truly believe this, we are His followers, we are no longer followers of sin, and we do not do what our sinful nature asks us to do, but since we believe in the gospel, we strive to imitate Christ’s nature in everything we do. One way we can discern whose followers we are is to see how we respond to sin, are we defeated by it? Are we dragged down by it? depressed because of it? Are we stuck in a cycle of falling to sin again and again, or are we running to God knowing that the grace of God powerfully overcomes the hurt caused by sin?  


Lord, we thank you for your grace and mercies through Jesus Christ who died for us on the cross for our sins, we ask for power and strength to overcome our sinful nature and desires. Amen.

Let us Hold Unswervingly to the Hope!

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


Is fellowship vital for a believer? The hope we hold means that Jesus is the sole author of our salvation, should we then exclude ourselves from others. The Bible answers that in Hebrews 10 23:25, it mentions that we should tightly hold on to hope but at the same time we are also called to spur one another in doing good things and be encouraging to others. Also, it warns about some people who have a habit of not meeting. Though Christ alone is sufficient for our faith, how can we put that faith into action without outwardly showing that love among others, including believers? Hold on to fellowships if you are in one or seek and find fellowships if you are not in one, or in some cases even start one. In any case, do it prayerfully, listening to God’s will.


Hebrews 10:23-25

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.


Lord, we pray that you lead us to find fellowships and grow in them. We pray that we can encourage and love others. Amen.

Thanksgiving and Encouragement

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


Apostle Paul thanks God for the people of Colossae because of their faith and love; it is almost certain that people would be encouraged to see such things written about them. In Paul’s letters, we sometimes see warnings and instructions, but he also shows appreciation wherever apt. Often our minds only see the differences and wrongdoings of a person or a community, but we are completely ignorant of their positive impacts on someone or society. This divisive mindset can only be removed if we understand the love of Christ in the true message of the gospel, the main motive of which is, to reconcile God with man as opposed to causing division.


Colossians 1:3-5

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people—the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel.


Lord, we thank You for the love you have shown through Jesus Christ, help us to love others by encouraging others. We ask that You remove any divisive thoughts that harbor within us. Amen.


A man of God, who finished well in Christ – Jesus! FORGIVEN! Many people believe that to thrive in this world the person must be tough, strong, unbending and harsh. But God says, “Not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit.” The key word is “by my Spirit.”

As you lead a Christ centered life, determine not to trust in your own strength or abilities. Instead, depend on God’s unlimited resources and work in the power of His Spirit.
