I will worship the Lord forever; I will worship Him every day 2x. His Name is Jesus; His Name Lord. I am free from condemnation. Jesus is the Rock of my salvation. I will ran through a troop, I will leap over wall. Halleluia Halleluia!
What shall I say unto the Lord all I have to say is “Thank You”. Father, thank you Lord for who You Are, You Are my salvation, thank You Jesus for the dying that I may live, thank You Holy Spirit, thank You for Your ever abiding Presence. Glory be to Your Father now and forever.
Beloved, are rejoicing with me? My pains are take way, I am rejoicing in the Lord my Savior, cos’ I believe, cos I believe. Is that you case also? A powerful light dropped into my heart as result of yesterday’s topic. The truth though know but the power in that revelation surged back powerfully as I was going the second part of the message. “God’s grace overrides every Satan accusations”
Wow! Like I said yesterday if you remain bound in the net of the crafty after yesterday, it is your own making no longer the wiles of the devil. God said “My Word endureth forever (1 Pet 1:25) whatever God do is forever (Eccl 3:14). Jesus healeth all my diseases. Therefore when you are healed, set free, delivered, made whole is permanent is for ever. No demon has the power to counter or alter what God has already done and settle. Let;s leave it at that, because today’s message is burning with fire; is the heart of God from the very beginning.
Are you bringing men to Christ? Do you know the “Worth of an individual” to God? When Adam and Eve fall in Garden of Eden; everything God created was at the edge of collapsing but not to our Omniscience God. Right there God brought in His Redemption plan into focus “salvation through His son Jesus Christ (Gen 3:15).
His undying love for the man He created made Jesus to give up the Throne for you and for me. What a marvelous act of love. God gave His best to redeem you and I from everlasting damnation.
Jesus on arrival look for men that will carry the goodnews to the end of the world. He chose the twelve and later the seventy and sooner before He ascended back into heaven, He appear to many and finally gave the great commission.
Philip is one apostle that understood the mind of God. When He discovered the Messiah, he went about telling people but first to his brother who later became the pillar in the house of God. When devote men were discourage after Stephen’s death, Philip went into Samaria preaching the gospel of Jesus and the whole town was rejoicing (Acts 8:8). It was also Philip who first took the message to the gentile when the Holy Spirit led him to Jerusalem to meet with an Ethiopian Eunuch.
Beloved, how are you responding to this redemption call? Philip started in his own Jerusalem, where are you starting from. Do members of your own house come to know Christ through you? Are they dropping strife because of your early intervention to matters to save the day? The wealth of your resources and knowledge, what are you using it for?
Recently, we discovered in our study that stagnated water stink. Are you stinking or are flowing into other river around you to make them full and better? No matter how beautiful you are or God has made you to be, if you influence others if you rob off your beauty on others around you, you will soon turn to a monument like the Egyptian mummy whose seed can never increase but remain same year after year.
The worthy of an individual. Philip started with his brother Simon. Who are you starting with? What impart are you making in peoples life? How are you helping to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ? All that God gave you, all your blessings and belongings are for you and your immediate family. Every other person’s “come and see” like Philip told Simon is to come and see how blessed you are, they will not part take of it or were they will, they only have a bit.
For many whom God are using mightily in building His kingdom and its value my prayer for you is in (Ps 115:13; 10:15 Ps 27:11). Also receive exceeding grace to continue in your exploits in the Lord by bring people to the Lord:
He first found his own brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah!” (which means “Anointed One”). . . —John 1:41
People become known for many things. Noah is known as a righteous man in an evil age. David is known as the man after God’s own heart. Peter is known as the outspoken disciple. John is known as the disciple whom Jesus loved. Judas is known as the betrayer. Paul is known as a fearless proclaimer of the gospel. Andrew is known for bringing others to Jesus.
The first person Andrew brought to Jesus was his brother Peter. As soon as Peter joined the disciples, he became the spokesperson for the Twelve, while Andrew remained in the background. It was Peter, not Andrew, who rose to prominence as one of Jesus’ inner circle of three. We do not read of Andrew resenting Peter; it seems he was satisfied to bring others to Jesus and leave the results to Him.
It is not surprising that Andrew found the boy with the loaves and fishes and brought him to Jesus (John 6:8–9). Andrew brought Greeks to Jesus, even though they were despised by pious Jews (John 12:20–22). There is no record of Andrew ever preaching a sermon, performing a miracle, or writing a book of Scripture. He is remembered for those whom he brought to Jesus.
Andrew is a good role model for us. Our job is not to transform people into Christians nor to convict them of their sin. It is not our responsibility to make people do what they ought to do. Our task is to bring them to Jesus, and He will perform His divine work in their lives.
The value of an individual cost God his dear son. What is it is costing you to make a worth of an individual? Are you oppressing or liberating people around you? Read and see what God expects of you:
The Worth Of The Individual
The story is told of a little girl walking along the beach who discovers hundreds of starfish washed up onto the shore, dying from the heat of the sun. Here and there, as she skips along, she tosses a starfish back into the surf. They will live while the hundreds remaining on the shore will die.
Upon returning home the little girl tells here mother what she has done. “What you did with those few starfish doesn’t make any difference,” replies her mother.
“Well it made a difference with the ONEs I threw back,” retorts the little girl.
- Jesus left 99 sheep for the ONE who was lost. It made a difference to him. (Luke 15:1-7)
- Jesus healed ONE man by a pool of water. It made a difference to him. (John 5:1-17)
- Jesus walked 90 miles through the desert to find and win Philip. It made a difference to him. (John 1:43)
Some ONE probably singled you out – as an INDIVIDUAL. And it made a difference to YOU.
In a world where numbers impress; where people are herded around like cattle and analyzed, counted, and generalized to death, keep in mind the fact that God still died for each INDIVIDUAL.
And the deep, significant differences made in people’s lives are usually done at the INDIVIDUAL level: ONE by ONE, and ONE on ONE.
Paul understood the worth of the INDIVIDUAL: “As you well know, we dealt with you ONE by ONE, as a father deals with his children.” (1 Thessalonians 2:11 neb)
QUESTION: Has God placed a beached and parched “starfish” across your path who could use a helping hand in getting to the cool healing waters of Jesus Christ, the living water? (John 4:14). Why not decide today… this week… to make a difference to him? (Adapted from FOTM)
Beloved, look round you, who and who are you hoping to make a difference in there live either by bring them to accept Christ or making impart in their life? Pay attention to that one person, if it is what you can presently do. Some people are strategically position to influence a wider society than you so like Philip to the Ethiopian eunuch, take advantage of where you are and win a soul to Christ.
This message inspires me even in my daily writing to that one individual who will be save just because I send a Word of light/ life his or her way. Please join me in bring people to the Lord. A great reward awaits us all.
Many thanks to all those the Lord has been using in furthering the gospel of Jesus Christ through their giving to the ministry, to me and my family, your resources will not run dry. God’s blessings will attend to you richly.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
