Come and see the Lord is good, come and see the Lord is good. there is nothing He cannot do, come and see the Lord is good. He gave me victory, He gave me peace mind. there is nothing He cannot do, I have seen the Lord is good.// I will lift my voice, I will joyfully sing not for what He has done but for Who He is, You are song that I sing, melody in my song, the reason I sing is to praise You Lord.

Everlasting King of glory, we worship You we bow before Your Throne to give You Praise and to adore You, You who is sitted in heaven above be glorified. Immortal God be Thou exalted above heavens. The God whose breathe blast the cedar of Lebanon, Who is enthrone up above and oversees the affairs of men to bring glory and pleasure to Himself. Be Thou exalted high above in Jesus Name.

Beloved, the best day of the week is here again. Are you excited for the PCL session? I am always look forward to it, what about you? I believe God that it is going to be a blessing to us as we be blessed with the Word coming our way. Praise God.

Are you familiar with the topic for the day “Ethics” “Integrity”? Can I ask you a question on the scale of 1-10 where do you fall? Beloveth, the world we are living now if you ask me I will say it is different from the world of old.

When truthfulness is a virtue people desires to have and live it out. Beloved, in the world of today, you cannot even trust those who claims to be Christians or born again. Is so frightening what you see among those that called themselves children of God.

Clearly, you know what you are doing is wrong, is against the law, cannot be mentioned among believes, but you go ahead to do same, then when caught in the act or discover after, you blame the devil.

Those in business offers nothing but sub-standard products in exchange of the original product and still collects same amount.   This is so common. Those in service cut corners and do eye service to those they are serving.

Interesting, today’s topic is not referring to believers alone so you can forward it to all your contacts to make our world a better place.

Cheating, lying, deception is the order of the day. The most astonishing is thing happening is blaming others for your deliberate acts and decisions just to look good. Is so perplexing that a Christian can be involved in some acts that are daily occurrening round the globe.

The Word of God condemns it and we must live as children of light not of darkness. It must be said of you that you are good epistle of Christ to be read by all and sundries. Let us desist from such negative attitudes that are repulsive and shouldn’t be mention among children of light.

Ask yourself where are you missing it in your life and make amend. We are not here to blame anyone because there is still time to repent but a time will come when it will be late to make amend.

Let us do all while it is still day before night comes when no one work.

Are you are a true child of God? Are your ways right before God in heaven? If rapture take place now will you be worthy be before the Lamb that was slain at Calvary?

Beloved, this called for a sober reflection and demands our repentance before God Who knows the very intent of your heart. One song says – “You cannot hide it from God. You cannot hide it from God, You can cover your sins from men to see but you cannot hid it from God.”

Beloved, you cannot hide it from God. Repent now and ask for forgiveness from God or those you offended and God will forgive you.

Be upright and sincere before God and God will honour you in return. Don’t miss this opportunity that presented itself to help you from everlasting damnation. Take away pride and save your soul from hell.

Let integrity be your watch word from today onward. God knows the intent of your heart so beware. You can get away with your pranks but God will remember it against you.

Well let’s look into our message for today and discover more:

Ethics — Integrity

Recently I had lunch with a businessman who is struggling to return to Christ after a 10 year hiatus. In returning, one of his major conflicts centers on his claim that during that period he encountered professing Christian businessmen, but none who actually lived out a Biblical ethic.

Keeping in mind our daily struggle with ethics and integrity, let me make three observations :

  1. All people believe in absolute truth:

Years ago in California, a drifter picked up a hitchhiking teenage girl, raped her and cut off her arms. Throughout the region, irrespective of religious or philosophical persuasions, there was a universal sense of rage as this riffraff received a relatively light sentence for the crime. The Word of God tells us the source of that rage:

When the Gentiles (non-believers), who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselvessince they show that the requirements of the law are written in their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.” (Romans 2:14, 15)

2. The essence of morality is the Golden Rule:

We need not complicate the ethics issue, but simply ask this question the next time we are inclined to drop a piece of trash on the ground, or hedge on our income tax : “By engaging in this act, am I loving my neighbor as myself ?” (See Galatians 5:14)

    3.  The force of the Law is enhanced through accountability:

Given our depravity, we know that if there is no accountability, there is no keeping of the law:

 “In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devisesHe says to himself, God has forgotten; He covers his face and never sees.‘” (Psalm 10:2, 11)

Conversely, the serious disciple of Christ is sobered by the reality of coming answerability, and chooses to live accordingly:

So we make it our goal to please HimFor we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:9b, 10)

 Did you just read that “Conversely, the serious disciple of Christ is sobered by the reality of coming answerability, and chooses to live accordingly.”

Remember the “Name that is guaranteed” just call on Jesus to help you and you will be glad you did.

Below is another ministration that will help you if you really and sincerely wants to live a true and upright life for the remaining days of your life. Let’s discover more:

Five Questions To A Serious Follower Of Christ

 

As a serious follower of Christ, here are five questions you may want to ask yourself:

  1. Have I forsaken that which is dearest to me to follow Him — regardless of the cost?

Any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.” (Luke 14:33b)

2. Do my priorities, intentions, and inner attitudes reflect a settled resolve to become like Jesus?

All the things I once thought were so important are gone from my life. Compared to the high privilege of knowing Christ Jesus as my Master, firsthand, everything I once thought I had going for me is insignificant – dog dung. Ive dumped it all in the trash so that I could embrace Christ and be embraced by Him.” (Philippians 3:7, 8 – The Message)

3. Am I choosing to forfeit things normally sought out by the masses in order to follow Him?

What is highly valued among men is detestable in Gods sight[Therefore,] enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Luke 16:15b, Matthew 7:13, 14))

  1. Am I systematically and progressively rearranging my affairs to get His training? To become His pupil?

 “Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accuratelyas wise (sensible, intelligent people)Do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians 5:15, 17 – Amplified)

  1. Is my manner of life, as a determined follower of Christ, obvious to the thoughtful people around me? Is it obvious to me?

 “This should be your ambition: to live a quiet life, minding your own business and doing your own work, just as we told you before. As a result, people who are not Christians will trust and respect you… ” (1 Thessalonians 4:11, 12a – Living)

 Conclusion: “The cross-shaped yoke of Christ isan instrument of liberation and power to those who live in it with Him and learn the meekness and lowliness of heart that brings rest to the soul… [It is] the fulfillment of the highest human possibilities and is life on the highest plane.

 May God help us and make us His children indeed. Have a nice weekend and be blessed as you live it out. Bye for now and see you next week by God’s bless.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
