PRAYER CHANGES THINGS PART I

Text: Mt.6:9-14; Ro. 8:26- 27; 1Jn. 5:14-15

Prayer is an act of worship by which we offer our praises and thanksgiving to God and then bring our request before Him. It is fellowship with God through Jesus Christ expressed in worship, in adoration and in thanksgiving; it is the only way by which we draw near to God and God draws near to us.

The Holy Spirit plays a vital role in stimulating and guiding our prayer life.

LIVING IN THE SPIRIT PART 4 – BRAND (MARK) BEARING

Text: Gal. 6:11-17; He. 13:11-13; 1Pe. 4:14-15

As believers, our willingness to crucify the flesh and be subject to the Holy Spirit enables us to operate as sons of God that we are.

The marks of Jesus Christ that Christians are expected to bear are real and not superficial; they are products of reproaches borne for Christ ‘outside the camp’.

LIVING IN THE SPIRIT PART 3 – SEED BEARING

Text Gal.6: 7-9; He. 12:22-24; Ps. 126: 1-6; Mt 21:44; Jn. 12:24

 

There is a due season of reaping for every seed sown.

Fruit produced by the Holy Spirit in the life of believers nourishes souls, but the seed must be planted for propagation of the fruit. Usually, sowing is accompanied with tears but the harvest is always joyous.

In a believer, the flesh entombs the Spirit of God. Therefore, the power of the Holy Spirit within a believer becomes manifest only in lives of those who die to the flesh. To die to flesh, there is  need to be broken by the Word of God.

LIVING IN THE SPIRIT PART 1 – FRUIT BEARING

Text: Gal 5:24-25, 22-23; Jn. 15:1-5

The first of the four-fold picture of living in the Spirit is ‘Fruit bearing’. Every fruit is seed bearing, and every seed produces after it’s own kind.

Fruit bearing means Christ –likeness. Flesh produces works of the flesh but the Spirit produces Fruit. As believers, we are called to bear Fruit by subjecting ourselves to the Holy Spirit who produces His Fruit in us.

THE TRAGEDY OF UNBELIEF – PART 3

Text : He. 3: 12; Nu. 11:21-22; Mt. 11: 2-

Any heart that habours unbelief has the tendency to depart from the Lord.

In our Christian journey, when unbelief creeps in, we must always turn our decisions over to God no matter the circumstance or situation; our position must always be – ‘nevertheless, not my will, but your will be done’.

Unbelief is the blindness of man to the glory of God of Heaven by the god of this world.

THE TRAGEDY OF UNBELIEF – PART 2

Text: He. 3:7-19

Whenever the gospel is preached, it always provokes one of two reactions in the hearts of hearers– conviction of sins or anger. Anger is evidence of rebellion against the word of God and the mark of unbelief.

THE TRAGEDY OF UNBELIEF – PART 1

TEXT: He. 3:12; Re. 21:8; Acts 2: 37-38; Acts 5:29-33

Unbelief is the lack of faith and trust in God that finds expression in disobedience and rebellion. It is tragic when believers are plagued by unbelief because it translates into an evil heart that causes departure from the living God.

IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO SPEAK TO YOURSELF FOR YOURSELF

SALVATION OF THE SOUL PART 23– THE MEANS IS THE CROSS.

Text: Mt. 16:24-26; Mk.8: 34-37: Lk.9: 23-25; Phil. 2:5-9; Mt. 26: 36- 44

Our personal cross is distinct from our burden. Usually, our burdens leave no room for choices, but every individual has the choice to deny or take up own cross. Our personal cross is a place of decision where we choose either to obey God’s will or assert our own will.

SALVATION OF THE SOUL PART 2 – WHAT IT MEANS

Text: Le. 17:11; Ro. 5:11: Mt. 16: 24-26: Mk.8: 34-37; Lk.9:23-25; 1Pe.2:11

God, through Jesus Christ, has put everything in place for the salvation of our souls. Jesus came that our souls may be saved, so all that is required of us is that we follow the instructions laid down in the word of God in order to enter into the experience of our salvation already completed in Christ.

SALVATION OF THE SOUL PART 1

Text: 1Thes. 5:23; Ep. 2:8-9; Tit.3: 4

A man is a living soul that has a spirit and lives in a body. God has put in place provisions for all that constitutes man i.e. the spirit, the soul and the body; to be saved.

At rebirth, the spirit is quickened, regenerated- saved by grace through faith. The spirit of man must be regenerated for his soul to be saved because the whole essence of Christianity is the salvation of the soul. The body will be redeemed at the end of time purely by the act of God.

Giving is an expression of thanksgiving to God. The righteousness of a generous and cheerful giver remains forever.

THE VALUE OF AFFLICTION

Text: Jas. 1:2-4; 12; Ps. 119:65-71; 2Cor. 4:17-18; He. 11:23; 1Ti. 6:6-11

A believer is called to endure afflictions, trials and tribulations allowed by God. Such afflictions, seen through the eye of faith, are light, momentary and work for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. We are able to endure such afflictions by focusing on eternal things through the eye of faith as well.

GIVE CAREFUL THOUGHTS TO YOUR WAYS

Texts: Hag.1: 5-6; La.3:40; Ps. 119:59-60; Is. 64:7; Je. 48:11; Zep.1:1

It is necessary, from time to time to stop and consider our ways so that we are not merely fully but wrongfully committed to our individual pursuit while leaving out the purpose of God for our lives.

Such regular appraisals will afford us the opportunity to make timely changes where necessary by aligning our lives with the scriptures.

Additionally, Christ is also the shadow of a great rock for believers in a weary land.

CHRIST THE ROCK PART 1

Text: Is. 32:1 – 2; Is. 33:17, 22; Ps. 11:1

Every committed believer must regard Jesus Christ as the hiding place from the winds and shelter from the storms. A man who puts his trust in the Lord must not fall for the temptation to seek for help outside of Christ, but he must continue to trust in the Lord no matter the hardship.
