Rivers of Living Water

Dear all,
Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10

Word: Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again and again. Anyone who drinks the water I (Jesus Christ) give will never thirst – not ever. The water I give will be an artisan spring within, gushing fountains of an endless life. If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Rivers of living water will brim and spill out of the depths of anyone who believes in me this way, just as the scripture says ‘ You’ll be like a well-watered garden, a gurgling spring that never runs dry. (John 4: 13-14, John 7: 38-39; Isaiah 58:11).

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

LORD Jesus, you quench the thirst and longing of my soul, Praise your blessed name – Billy Graham.

By Grace, you have been saved, through Faith In Christ Jesus

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:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Thought:

Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19: 9-10

2 Corinthians 2:14 says, But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.

We are saved by God’s grace, and grace is love that pays a price. The sovereignty of God and the responsibility of man must be balanced.

The Parable of the Loving Father

Dear all, 

Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10

Word: The Joys of Salvation:

“When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! Luke 15: 17

Thought:

The story of the lost son wonderfully demonstrates the theme of Luke’s gospel and the keys to spiritual renewal.

Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19: 9-10

We are saved by God’s grace, and grace is love that pays a price. The sovereignty of God and the responsibility of mankind must be balanced. 

Great Banquet – God Extends His Grace and Mercy to everyone who Repents!

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:  “‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’ “Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in so that my house will be full. 

Thought: The story of the great banquet illustrates one of the major themes in Luke’s Gospel. God extends His grace and mercy to everyone who repents. Confession and repentance mean a change in the deepest heart. With God’s help, we can accept Christ’s forgiveness and stop our wrongdoing. Jesus heals our inner wounds as well as outer wounds by his stripes.

“Jesus was wounded… Jesus was crushed… By His stripes, we are healed” (Isa 53:5)

Word:  

            He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6: 8

Thought:

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30; The Message (MSG)Have a Victorious walk in Christ

Past…Present…Future!

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: Gift of Forgiveness in Christ Jesus – Romans 5: 5 – 20

                But the gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.

Thought:

Through the cross of Christ Jesus, we have salvation and new life. Moreover, we also have an excellent opportunity to be born into His spiritual family. Certainly, this spiritual family line starts with His amazing forgiveness and results in everlasting life. Overall, In Christ Jesus, we have peace with the past, purpose in present, and hope for the future.

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!

The Sovereignty of God!

Dear all,

Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power. Ephesians 6: 10  

Word: Be dressed for service and keep your lamps burning – Luke 12: 35

Be – Personal call for you – God saved our forefathers through thousands of years, even in the middle of famine, war and natural calamities and brought us into this World. God’s sovereign plan in Christ Jesus for you and me was well planned by God before the foundations of the earth (Ephesians 1).

Dressed: Zechariah 3: 1-10 and Ephesians 6 talk about the garment.  It is referred to as the Salvation in Christ Jesus and the full armor of God. With these we will be secured and saved by God from satanic attacks. Submit to God and resist the devil in Jesus’ name.

For service: What is the ultimate service for us on this Earth? The answer is simple – sharing the love of Christ Jesus to the people who are in need of salvation. Our life should have a solid foundation in the Word of God. We need to have one desire, one passion, one goal and that is, to proclaim Jesus’ name by our words and actions everywhere (Matthew 7: 24).

Keep your lamps burning: Plug your mind into the power of prayer and be filled with the Holy Spirit, which results in a continuous victorious walk in Christ in all the areas of your life. In which area do you need a continuous victory? Let us ask God like Jacob and He is ready to bless us with a victorious life. In addition, God called us to be a light in the darkness (Matthew 5). Oil lamp needs a continuous supply of oil and if it is an electric lamp it needs a continuous electric supply. Here we can compare oil and electricity with God’s anointment of the Holy Spirit.

Let us spend some time in prayer and re-evaluate our walk with Christ.

Thought: The Sovereignty of God

God is sovereign, He is in charge. When your life seems chaotic, rest in this truth and rest in His arms. God is in control; Jesus is LORD, and the Holy Spirit is with you as Jesus Promised.

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.”
https://classic.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%205%3A1-11&version=NIV
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

Choose Life! Obedience is the Way of True Blessings In 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:

When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. James 1:13-15 (NIV)

Thought: 

Choose life! Please God always! Pray for discernment and wisdom to make the correct choices. Remember, desire leads to deception. Deception leads to lust. Lust conceives plans to disobey. Partial obedience is disobedience!

Memorize: Obedience is the way of true blessings in Christ Jesus!
