I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High. When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence. For thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right. Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever. Ps 9:1-5 (KJV)
Blessed the Lord O my soul and forget not all His Faithfulness. Beloved, is your soul praising the Lord this day ? Are you rejoicing in the Lord Your Saviour? I want you to praise the King of kings and the Lord of lords as we begin this new week for the Lord adorn our praises unto Himself. Therefore make a joyful noise unto the Lord, somebody!!!!!
The Lord Jesus commanded us go to all nations and make disciples of all creation. In this month of blessedness, we are encouraged to bring “souls to the kingdom”. Disciple one person for the Lord.
Again we ask, “Are you engaged or entangled”? Referring to last Friday message, your answer will determine your priority in life and help you to be more focus. Someone is complaining of (Time), good a reason to give, if the Lord wants you right now, surly you leave that all important job, business, career, family and answer.
Make out time for the Lord, you will be counted faithful among His children. Sometime dear beloved, we waste a lot of time the front of television, reading all the Newspapers, listen to all the world news, some spent so much time getting dress up in front of the mirror but no time to preach the “good news”.
We are encouraged to seek after the lost sheep, are you ready? If you want to be His disciple or beloved like John, you must go fishing for only fisher’s follows Him. Are you surprise to hear that, a little step further will give you farther insight on this:
“And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.” Mark 1:17
Only by coming after Jesus can we obtain our heart’s desire, and be really useful to our fellow men. Oh, how we long to be successful fishers for Jesus! We would sacrifice our lives to win souls. But we are tempted to try methods which Jesus would never have tried. Shall we yield to this suggestion of the enemy? If so, we may splash the water, but we shall never take the fish.
We must follow after Jesus if we would succeed. Sensational methods, entertainments, and so forth — are these coming after Jesus? Can we imagine the Lord Jesus drawing a congregation by such means as are now commonly used? What is the result of such expedients? The result is nothing which Jesus will count up at the last great day.
We must keep to our preaching as our Master did, for by this means souls are saved. We must preach our Lord’s doctrine, and proclaim a full and free gospel; for this is the net in which souls are taken. We must preach with His gentleness, boldness, and love; for this is the secret of success with human hearts. We must work under divine anointing, depending upon the sacred Spirit. Thus, coming after Jesus, and not running before Him, nor aside from Him, we shall be fishers of men.
As children of God and followers of our Lord Jesus Christ, our life styles and conversation should always typify who our father is. Wondering what am talking about. The message below will explain further how we should conduct ourselves. Don’t forget we are the gospel others get to ready and be drawn to our heavenly father. We should be doers of the Word also. More below:
“Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ.” Philippians 1:27
The word “conversation” does not merely mean our talk and converse with one another, but the whole course of our life and behaviour in the world. The Greek word signifies the actions and the privileges of citizenship: and thus we are commanded to let our actions, as citizens of the New Jerusalem, be such as becometh the gospel of Christ. What sort of conversation is this? In the first place, the gospel is very simple.
So Christians should be simple and plain in their habits. There should be about our manner, our speech, our dress, our whole behaviour, that simplicity which is the very soul of beauty. The gospel is pre-eminently true, it is gold without dross; and the Christian’s life will be lustreless and valueless without the jewel of truth. The gospel is a very fearless gospel, it boldly proclaims the truth, whether men like it or not: we must be equally faithful and unflinching. But the gospel is also very gentle. Mark this spirit in its Founder: “a bruised reed He will not break.” Some professors are sharper than a thorn-hedge; such men are not like Jesus. Let us seek to win others by the gentleness of our words and acts.
The gospel is very loving. It is the message of the God of love to a lost and fallen race. Christ’s last command to His disciples was, “Love one another.” O for more real, hearty union and love to all the saints; for more tender compassion towards the souls of the worst and vilest of men! We must not forget that the gospel of Christ is holy. It never excuses sin: it pardons it, but only through an atonement.
If our life is to resemble the gospel, we must shun, not merely the grosser vices, but everything that would hinder our perfect conformity to Christ. For His sake, for our own sakes, and for the sakes of others, we must strive day by day to let our conversation be more in accordance with His gospel.
Did you go fishing last weekend? Did you have a catch? Disciple them for Christ, He will reward you, if you are yet to catch one, try out this week and the good Lord will bless you all the days of your life. Amen (Phil 4:1). Have a fruitful week ahead with Jesus directing your affairs. Amen! See you at the “testimony stand” of the Lord goodness over you.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
