My Everything

Romans 4:24 ” But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead:”

 

It is great to worship the Lord on Sunday, but it is even greater when we serve Him Monday through Saturday. Many walk straight on Sunday but their walk seems crooked the rest of the week. The Lord is seeking dedicated servants, who will willfully follow Him.

It ought to be the great care of every one of us to follow the Lord fully.We must in a course of obedience to God’s will and service to His honor follow Him universally,without dividing. Uprightly, without dissembling; cheerfully, without disputing; and constantly, without declining, and this is following him fully. A disciple of Christ is one that gives up himself to be wholly at Christ’s disposing; to learn what he teaches, to believe what he reveals, to do what he commands, to avoid what he forbids, to suffer what is inflicted by him or for him, in expectation of that reward which he hath promised. Such a one is a disciple of Christ, and he, and none else, is a dedicated Christian.

 

This thing is solely about Jesus and Him alone. Everything that we are is because of Jesus; all that we have is from Jesus. He is everything that God had to say to man, all that He needed to give to man; and in him is everything man needs to say to God. Jesus is all in all.

Will You Stand With The Lord?

Exodus 32:26 “Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp,and said, Who is on the Lord’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him”.

Much like Israel many today have rebelled against God’s word, making gods of the riches of this world which they have begun to worship. They profess the Lord as long as His ways don’t interfere with their desires. Here the people began to doubt the Lord and made themselves other gods to worship. Moses appeared among them, and in great wrath threw down their idol and rebuked Aaron. The people were awe-struck by the presence of the servant of the Lord, and sought their tents, except for a number who chose to be bold in their defiance. Moses, feeling that this great rebellion must be crushed and punished, called the faithful to his standard, and those who came were of the tribe of Levi.

All true men ought to decide, because there is a major conflict going on inside each of us. A battle that we must fight with daily, and all who remain neutral will be subject to the wrath. The conflict; belief in God or Atheism; the truth of the scripture or falsehoods of mans imagination.The  gospel versus superstition; Christ versus self-righteousness; the commands of God or men pleasing; and holiness and right against sin and oppression.These are conflict which we face daily and sometime hourly, will you deny Christ at a time when a witness is needed for fear of standing alone. Will you make a decision from the heart and stand boldly with the Lord even if it means standing alone. Will you profess openly and loudly your alligence with the Lord?  When you do all to stand, will you still stand?

To Be Like Jesus

Galatians 3:27   For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

 

A Christian believes that Jesus is the Son of God. In addition, he or she should desire to be like Christ. To be united with Christ means to be one with Jesus, and is a statement of a Christian’s partnership with Jesus in communicating to other in our walk and our talk, what he is like. The hearts and action of Christians are to be the same as that of Jesus Christ. Our lives should characterize the tenderness, compassion, unity and love of Jesus and we should have a desire to serve others. What should be absent are selfish ambitions and vain conceit. God understands that doing these things will not be easy. But neither was Jesus’ journey to the cross. Jesus was “obedient unto death” knowing that his sacrifice would ultimately result in restoring man’s broken relationship with God. God wants Christians to be obedient to the same degree, knowing that this will fulfill His purpose for our lives and work out or finish what was started when we first put our faith in Jesus.

Being one with Christ should result in a desire to be like Christ. This in turn should lead to a commitment to be obedient. The net result should be a life that reflects Christ character, one where our attitude and actions are a good reflection on God. Like Noah’s ark, there is only one door into salvation, and that door is Jesus, and only those inside Christ spiritual body, His Church, will be saved when the flood of judgment comes. The Fathers will is that none will be lost, let us live a life that leads all men to the salvation of the Lord.

Do You Know Enough To Truly Believe

John 6:69 “And we believe and are sure that thou art the Christ, the son of the living God”
 

Do you believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of the living God?  Is your belief  a committment to follow Him. Is your belief one of total surrender, or is it just the fact that you believe that Jesus lived, died and rose again, but not strong enough to bring you to action. Do you know enough about the Lord to truly believe.

 

People it is a must to learn about the Lord. How can you trust Him if you don’t know Him.Yes what mommy and grand mommy,and even daddy tells you is good, but you have to know God personally and for yourself. Paul scolded the Corinthian Christians for their un spiritual attitudes and conduct. He explained that their problems were cause partly by some of them having too little knowledge of God’s ways. Most of the division the church now suffers, is from our lack of knowledge and  understanding of the knowledge we think we have about our Lord.  We cannot properly honor and serve God or his Son, Jesus Christ, unless we have knowledge of his will.We aquire that knowledge through regular, diligent Bible study.We must study to show ourselves approved unto God, that we might truthfully live the word of truth. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that we may be complete and thoroughly equipped for every good work. It is through our knowledge of God and his word that we are equipped to do that which he calls us to do.

 

Think about your relationship with Christ. How much time do you truly spend with Him.If He was to do with you the way you do Him, would you feel like you were in a good relationship with Him?
