Poor, weak and worthless though I am

I have a rich almighty Friend;

Jesus, the Savior, is His Name;

He freely loves, and without end.

 

He ransomed me from hell with blood,

And by His power my foes controlled;

He found me wandering far from God,

And brought me to His chosen fold.

 

Heavenly Father we bow before Your Presence and Worship You. thank You for the gift of this week. Thank You for bring us to the very last week of the Month of March. It can only be You Lord. we give You praises. We give You adorations, we give You honour, alleluia to Your Holy Name. Be though exalted forever in Jesus Name.

Glory be to You on high Father. Thank You for the greatest gift ever – the redemption of my Spirit from hell. Thank You for the shaded blood of your Son Jesus Christ for mankind. Thank You for the power that broke the chains of hell and death. Alleluia to Your Name Father in Jesus Name.

Beloveth Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!! Thank God for the grace to be part of week, The Passion – A great week in Christendom. The week Christ accomplished His mission here on earth. Thank God that Jesus said Yes O! Yes to the very reason while He sojourned here on earth. Thank God that He did not back out at the end seeing the agony ahead of Him.

Beloveth, if you are truly a child of God, you need celebrate The Easter Feast with great joy and rejoicing because this is when your eternal glorification was secured week. Because Jesus said Yes to His Father’s Will. Praise the Lord!!!

The topic today is the reason for the sojourn of Christ here on earth that every Christian should be with Him at the end of their journey here on earth. Our Lord Jesus Christ went to the Cross and die so that we shall live after we have done the “Will” of His Father.

The greatest tragedy will be to miss where Jesus has prepared for you at last. “God forbid.” The remembrance of this season every year is to remind us the reason why we are here on earth lest we stray away from the course..

Beloveth, the death of Christ will not be in vain in our life, we must be among the number which He (groom) will present to His Father at the Last Supper. We must wear the wedding garment dearly beloved lest we will be throw into outermost darkness.

The reason for the season is not only in wearing good apparels; good at it may be, is also in preparing our spirit, soul and body to stay tune with the Will of our Father. Amen!

Beloveth, mediated therein in all the passion that Jesus went through and take a decision to make heaven at last. Alleluia!

If you are yet to receive Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, please endeavour to do click here so that we will also be with Christ at the end.

Apostle Paul said “for me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Beloveth the strength of this statement lies in the topic of today. For Apostle Paul, as longer as he is in this part of eternity “Christ and Christ alone.” Wherefore he is died; he must did in Christ which is an ultimate gain.

Is that your confession too or you don’t know where you belong. Or you are among those who said that when the appear at the judgment seat and if they are to go to hell, God in His anger while trying to fling them into hell; will fling them into heaven. Praise the Lord.

Come along for more:

 

“Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am.” John 17:24

O death! why dost thou touch the tree beneath whose spreading branches weariness hath rest? Why dost thou snatch away the excellent of the earth, in whom is all our delight? If thou must use thine axe, use it upon the trees which yield no fruit; thou mightest be thanked then. But why wilt thou fell the goodly cedars of Lebanon?

O stay thine axe, and spare the righteous. But no, it must not be; death smites the goodliest of our friends; the most generous, the most prayerful, the most holy, the most devoted must die. And why? It is through Jesus’ prevailing prayer—”Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am.” It is that which bears them on eagle’s wings to heaven. Every time a believer mounts from this earth to paradise, it is an answer to Christ’s prayer.

A good old divine remarks, “Many times Jesus and His people pull against one another in prayer. You bend your knee in prayer and say ‘Father, I will that Thy saints be with me where I am’; Christ says, ‘Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am.'” Thus the disciple is at cross-purposes with his Lord. The soul cannot be in both places: the beloved one cannot be with Christ and with you too. Now, which pleader shall win the day?

If you had your choice; if the King should step from His throne, and say, “Here are two supplicants praying in opposition to one another, which shall be answered?” Oh! I am sure, though it were agony, you would start from your feet, and say, “Jesus, not my will, but Thine be done.” You would give up your prayer for your loved one’s life, if you could realize the thoughts that Christ is praying in the opposite direction—”Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am.” Lord, Thou shalt have them.

By faith we let them go.

Beloveth, we and our family must serve the Lord the only true God, so that if the time of earthly sparation we will be confident to let go knowing that we will see again at the end of time Amen!

I want to see you also. God bless your spirit, soul, and body in Jesus Name. We are poise for His blessings! alleluia somebody!!!!!!!!!!!!

On this note we declare this week blessed, we will return at the end with greater testimonies in Jesus Name.

Let complete the opening hymn – Christ the Redeemer and Friend…..

 

He cheers my heart, my wants supplies,

And says that I shall shortly be,

Enthroned with Him above the skies;

O what a Friend is Christ to me!

 

But, ah! my inmost spirit mourns;

And well my eyes with tears may swim,

To think of my perverse returns:

I’ve been a faithless friend to Him.

 

Often my gracious Friend I grieve,

Neglect, distrust, and disobey;

And often Satan’s lies believe

Sooner than all my Friend can say.

 

He bids me always freely come,

And promises whate’er I ask:

But I am straitened, cold and dumb,

And count my privilege a task

 

Before the world that hates his course,

My treach’rous heart has throbbed with shame;

Loath to forego the worlds applause,

I hardly dare avow his name.

 

Sure, were I not most vile and base,

I could not thus my Friend requite!

And were not He the God of grace,

He’d frown and spurn me from His sight.
