Today we will considering a topic “having a fresh encounter with Christ? If I may ask you a question, “Are you ready to have a fresh encounter with Christ this day and always?”

When Mary encountered Jesus in the resurrection morning, Jesus told her to touch Him not because He was yet to ascend to His Father but he sent her to go tell the brethren that He is to ascend unto His Father and our Father and my God and our God. Jn 20:17.

Same when He encountered the two disciple on the way to Emmaus- He expounded the Word to them though the recognized Him not but they confess that they feel a burning within their heart while He spoke with them.  Lk 24:27-33

When Jesus encountered the disciples behind closed door as they were hiding from the Jews, Jesus came in and said to them “Peace be unto you” then showed them His hands and feet. Jn 20:19-23.

Another encounter with His disciple He commissioned Peter to feed His lamb.” Jn 21:15-17.

Beloved, are you having a burning desire to have a fresh encounter with Jesus? Jesus told His disciple to tarry they are endue with power from above. That power is the quickening Spirit (Holy Ghost) that will quicken your mortal bodies and enable you to be all that God has created you to be.

The quickening power that raised Christ from death will encounter today and you will have a fresh encounter with Jesus today. Don’t be left out as Lord said so will do with you if you believe.

Last week Friday we are taught how to be contented, the life we saw Jesus exhibited, today we are going to encounter another virtue of Christ that made excel in all His Father sent him to do while He was here on earth. Beloved, are you ready to partake the month promise then this piece is a must read for you, the Lord will help you and perfect all that concerns you.

Arise and be counted for the Lord. His encounter will never leave you the same way. It will lead you to do exploits for the Lord because the Spirit of the Living God will do beyond your expectation. Praise God!

 

What we have seen and heard we also declare to you, so that you may have fellowship along with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. We are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.—1 John 1:3–4

 

John the apostle never ceased to marvel at the life-changing relationship he enjoyed with his Lord. It overwhelmed him to know that, at a particular time in history, the God of the universe chose to have fellowship with him, a simple fisherman. John was so overjoyed that he earnestly wanted to share his joy with others so they, too, might experience the same joy. A special fellowship or “bonding” developed between those who had personally encountered Christ as they rejoiced together at God’s goodness to them.

Those around you desperately need to be encouraged by your latest encounter with Christ. Some have lost hope that they can experience the reality of God’s presence in their lives. They don’t need your philosophies or theological speculations. They don’t need to hear your opinions on what they should do. They need to hear from someone who has just come from a personal, life-changing encounter with the living Christ.

When you have had such an experience you will be like the apostle John, hardly able to contain yourself as you rush out to tell others of your amazing encounter with God. Your responsibility will not be to convince others of the reality of God, but simply to bear witness to what your Lord has said and done for you. The change in your life will be your greatest testimony of your relationship to Christ.

There is nothing more appealing or convincing to a watching world than to hear the testimony of someone who has just been with Jesus.

Your testimony will convince someone about the doings of Jesus in life. if you are yet to encounter Jesus then you are limited to be on go for Him. So click here to accept Jesus now.

Now that you have accepted Him we are glad to welcome you into the family of God. let learn more from Him -the of Humility. Ride on-

 

“Before honour is humility.” Proverbs 15:33

                                                                              

Humiliation of soul always brings a positive blessing with it. If we empty our hearts of self God will fill them with His love. He who desires close communion with Christ should remember the word of the Lord, “To this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at My word.”

Stoop if you would climb to heaven. Do we not say of Jesus, “He descended that He might ascend”? so must you. You must grow downwards, that you may grow upwards; for the sweetest fellowship with heaven is to be had by humble souls, and by them alone. God will deny no blessing to a thoroughly humbled spirit. “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven,” with all its riches and treasures.

The whole exchequer of God shall be made over by deed of gift to the soul which is humble enough to be able to receive it without growing proud because of it. God blesses us all up to the full measure and extremity of what it is safe for Him to do. If you do not get a blessing, it is because it is not safe for you to have one. If our heavenly Father were to let your unhumbled spirit win a victory in His holy war, you would pilfer the crown for yourself, and meeting with a fresh enemy you would fall a victim; so that you are kept low for your own safety.

When a man is sincerely humble, and never ventures to touch so much as a grain of the praise, there is scarcely any limit to what God will do for him. Humility makes us ready to be blessed by the God of all grace, and fits us to deal efficiently with our fellow men.

True humility is a flower which will adorn any garden. This is a sauce with which you may season every dish of life, and you will find an improvement in every case. Whether it be prayer or praise, whether it be work or suffering, the genuine salt of humility cannot be used in excess.

Beloved, contentment and humility are two keys handed over to you to explore the power of the quickening Spirit. As contentment is not a natural propensity of man but need to be cultivated likewise humility. We must sow the seed and allow it grow. The quickening power that raised Jesus from death will not do less but you must believe and it shall be well with you. Praise God. Fresh encounter with Jesus will set you on higher pedestrian as you see from those who encountered Him Yours will not be an exception in Jesus Name.

On this note we kick off the week and by the grace of God come end of this week we will return with great testimonies.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
