Bearing Fruits

Dear all,

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1: 3

Word: 

Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do. Psalms 1: 1-3

Thought:

Bearing Fruits – The spiritual root system is the vital base of our growth in Christ Jesus. Remember to rely on Him for everything: such as Godly Characters, winning people for Christ Jesus, service, and good works, giving resources (Time, Talent & Treasures) to the LORD’S work. Reflecting the characters of LORD Jesus Christ through our witnessing life is the key!

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

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.

Prayer – Always Pray and Don’t Give up

Dear all,

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

Word:  For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust. Psalms 103: 11 – 14

 

Thought:  Prayer – Always Pray and Don’t Give up

Knowing God:

Unless we know God in a personal way through the love of Christ Jesus we cannot love God. If we don’t have the love of God we may not carry the Word of God. If we don’t have the Word of God we can’t have the fear of God.

When we know He loves us, we can believe He will hear our cries for help. Holy Spirit is the key person to reveal the divine essence of God in Christ Jesus.

May God enhance our Spiritual eyes to see the marvelous light in Christ Jesus!

Fan or Follower

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word:  “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9: 23

Thought:  Fan or Follower!

Not a fan 3

In order to carry the cross we must “put down” some things:  what is the LORD calling you to put down?

Citizens of Heaven

Dear all,

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

Word: But we are the citizens of heaven, where the LORD Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under control.

Thought:

God’s Sovereign Plan:

Citizens of heaven have to promote heaven’s interests on earth and lead lives worthy of heavenly citizenship. As Bible says we are here living as aliens and strangers. In this faith journey, God is equipping us to live forever with him. Our earthly pleasures and treasures should not be a hurdle in our walk with Christ Jesus.

Have you transferred your citizenship? How are you promoting heaven’s interest?

God offers comforts to all:

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word:

God offers comforts to all:

2 Corinthians 1:3-7New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in [a]any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are [b]ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ. But if we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; or if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which is effective in the patient enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer; and our hope for you is firmly grounded, knowing that as you are sharers of our sufferings, so also you are sharers of our comfort.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Corinthians+1%3A3-7&version=NASB

Thought: Being comforted by God – Receiving strength, encouragement, and hope to deal with our troubles. The more we suffer, the more comfort God gives us. If you are feeling overwhelmed, allow God to comfort you. Remember that every trial we endure for the Kingdom of God will help us comfort other people who are suffering similar troubles.
