Marriage: Love & Respect – True Joy and Peace, that is from God!

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Thought:

 People of the world might suggest several things for a joyful marriage. Some of them might sound good and feel good but the Bible is clear on the roles of a husband/wife in a marriage and upon following, it can lead to the best marriages in terms of true joy and peace, that is from God.

Word:
Ephesians 5:21-33 (Also refer 1 Peter 3:1-7)
21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body. 31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”32 This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.

Prayer:
LORD, thank you for the institution of marriage, help us to fulfill the roles you have given us. Help us to imitate the relationship of Christ and Church in the marriage. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

“O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good”

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word: For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints. 1 Corinthians 14:33

Thought: In Psalms 107, we see that people face different circumstances and end up in trouble. But the one thing they all did and experienced is that they called out to the LORD and He saved them from distress (verses 6,13,19,28).

Prayer:
LORD, help us to focus on you in times of problems and not on the problems themselves. Increase our faith through Your grace to overcome our fears. In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen

Practical and Victorious Christian Life

Dear all,
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Word: “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “You are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 41 – 42.

Thought:

To live a practical and victorious Christian life we must keep our eyes on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ without any distractions. Distractions diminish our devotion to Jesus. In contrast, our devotion to Jesus diminish our distractions.

Aroma of Christ Jesus

Dear all,

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. 1 Corinthians 16: 13 -14.

Word:

But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. II Cor 2: 14 -15

Thought: When we have the aroma of Christ in our hearts, we cannot hide the fragrance.

What Happens When We don’t Practice the Discipline of Gratitude?

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

 Word: “Living with a Grateful Heart” – Are you grateful to the LORD?

Luke 17:11-19 – Jesus Heals Ten Men With Leprosy

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalms 100: 4 and 5

Thought:

What happens when we don’t practice the discipline of gratitude?

We will be fueled and filled with ingratitude, refusing to acknowledge and respond to what Christ has done for us. This will produce in us a very unhealthy attitude and a life that is not Spirit-led. We will not realize what we have or could have, but rather focus on an “entitlement” mentality that says we deserve this or that, and where humbleness and servitude are absent. It will create in us a life of dissatisfaction and dysfunction.

Let us have a life that overflows with gratitude in Christ Jesus!

Pass it On! Proclaiming Jesus Wherever He Leads us!

Word:

Always Remember – We are on the Winning side – Christ Jesus is the Victor!

Dear all,
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Phil 1:2
Word:
When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”

Thought: Always Remember – We are on the Winning side – Christ Jesus is the Victor because He cares, He Loves, He knows the future, He knows what is the best for us and for the upcoming new generations too. 
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. Phil 2: 5 Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25

Thirsty?

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

Word:  Jesus answered, “All who drink this water will be thirsty again.  But anyone who drinks the water I give him will never be thirsty. In fact, the water I give him will become a spring of water in him. It will flow up into eternal life.” John 4: 13 and 14

The Lord says, “I sent a great army of locusts to attack you. They included common locusts, giant locusts, young locusts and other locusts. I will make up for the years they ate your crops. You will have plenty to eat. It will satisfy you completely. Then you will praise me. I am the Lord your God. I have done wonderful miracles for you. My people will never be put to shame again. You will know that I am with you in Israel. I am the Lord your God. There is no other God. So my people will never be put to shame again. Joel 2: 25-27.

Thought:

Are we looking up to Jesus to satisfy us or are we running vainly behind the worldly things?

Christ-centered attitude colors our whole personality!

Dear all,

May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace and bless you as a channel of blessings.

Romans 12:2 says “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”.

Thought: How to Be a Discerning person? –  Our attitude colors our whole personality!

What we feed our minds is more important than what we feed our bodies. The websites we visit, the books we read, the people we talk with, the Christian music we listen to, and the Christian preachers we listen to are all part of our diet to our mind. Be discerning, because what you feed your mind influences your overall health and well-being. Thus a strong desire like Heroes of faith Joshua, Daniel, and Paul, etc (Hebrews 11) to discover knowledge is a mark of wisdom in Christ Jesus. Our attitude colors our whole personality.

The true happiness in Christ Jesus is in our thoughts, not based on the things that we have. We cannot always choose what happens to us, but we can choose our attitude toward each situation. The secret to a joyful heart is filling our minds with thoughts that dwell on the good things in life (Philip 4: 8). This was Paul’s secret as he faced imprisonment because of the true Gospel of Christ Jesus and it can be ours as we face struggles of daily living. Look and check your attitude and then examine in the presence of God what you allow to enter your mind and what you choose to dwell on. You may need to make some positive changes and seek to do what is right, walk humbly with the LORD Jesus Christ in this Journey (Zephaniah 2: 3). Be the Church (Romans 12:3-5) and be a tentmaker like Aquila and Pricilla’s family (Acts 18:1-4; 18-20; 24-26).
