Beloved, how are doing? Warming up for the arrival of New Born King – Jesus. Wow! Is someone excited about this? I was privileged to minister to the children last Sunday during service and the topic is –A King is Born. It was an interesting session. I had fun myself. It was all involving as I have to engage them in questions and answers all through the ministration. The children participated actively especially when there is a price to be won at the end.

Among these children are the GO’s, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers, name it the fivefold ministries. My heart went out for them because I know that as they are being expose to the Word of God, the enemy is also strategizing o how to take some out from the fold. At the end I made an altar call and so many were winning and eager to give the lives to Christ- typical of children church. I concluded by praying that the Lord will preserve them to the end.

Beloved, we need to bring the children to the Lord. Don’t wait until is late to pluck them out from net of sin which have ensnared them.

Beloved, what are doing for the Lord? How do intend to make this Christmas joyful for someone out there? How do you want someone who has not receive Jesus as His Lord and personal Saviour to see your Jesus? Are you planning on how to make this season in someone’s life?

At such a time like this in the past, prophet Micah read it out to the people of his time what God expected them. This same message we are bringing to you today what God expected you to do that is pleasing to Him. Are willing and obedient to live out the commands of God?

Come along with me for more discovery:

He has told you men what is good and what it is the Lord requires of you: Only to act justly, to love faithfulness, and to walk humbly with your God.—Micah 6:8

 

God never conceals His expectations from us. We never have to guess how we should live. In response to the misguided ways in which people sought to please God, the prophet Micah clearly explained what God does and does not expect. The people asked: Should we come to God with many offerings? Should we bring a thousand rams and ten thousand rivers of oil? Would God be pleased if we gave our firstborn child to Him to express our devotion? (Mic. 6:6–7). Micah’s response was straightforward: “He has shown you, O man, what is good.”

Micah listed three things God desires. First, He wants us to show justice. The desire to receive justice is not enough. We must also be absolutely just in the way we treat others. If we have given our word, we should keep it with complete integrity. If we have people working for us, we should treat them as fairly as Jesus would. We should act justly in every relationship.

Second, we are to love mercy. The knowledge that we have received undeserved mercy from God should motivate us to show mercy to others. We must resist the temptation to retaliate against those who have wronged us, choosing to show them mercy instead.

Finally, God requires us to walk humbly with Him. God does not ask us for spectacular acts of service—He asks for humility. At times we try to make the Christian life far more complicated than it is. We may hide behind questions about the Bible or uncertainty about the second coming of Christ. We can allow ourselves to become distracted in order to avoid confronting what God has clearly told us to do today. If we strive to be completely obedient in the basics, the more complex assignments will become clear.

Are you will to act justly? To love faithfulness and to walk humbly before God? Is a person decision. In order to help us also for better understanding of what is expected of us, we brought to you some of the resolved of one of our founding fathers in faith. How pleasant it will be if someone will copy it and leave it out. Let’s keep going:

Seven Resolves Of Jonathan Edwards (1703 – 1758)

 

Jonathan Edwards, perhaps more than any other person, laid the foundation of Christianity in early America. He, along with George Whitefield affected “The Great Awakening,” the first of several major revivals in the USA.

  1. “Resolved, never to do any manner of thing, whether in soul or body, less or more, but what tends to the glory of God…

Jesus: “I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.” (John 17:4b) (See Matthew 5:16; 1 Corinthians 6:20; Galatians 6:14; Philippians 1:11; 1 Peter 2:12)

  1. “Resolved, never to give over, nor in the least to slacken my fight with my corruptions, however unsuccessful I may be.”

Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.” (Romans 6:13) (See Romans 6:6, 14; 7:15-23; 8:1, 2; Galatians 5:16-18, 24; 2 Timothy 4:7; 1 Peter 2:11)

  1. “Resolved, never to speak evil of anyone, so that it shall tend to his dishonor… “

Get rid of allslander… ” (Ephesians 4:31b) (See Proverbs 11:9; Titus 3:2; 1 Timothy 5:13; 1 Peter 3:16)

  1. “Resolved, to study the Scriptures so steadily, constantly and frequently, as that I may find, and plainly perceive myself to grow in the knowledge of the same.”

Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” (Acts 17:11) (See Psalm 1:1, 2; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:10-12; 2 Peter 1:19)

  1. “Resolved, to examine carefully, and constantly, what that one thing in me is, which causes me in the least to doubt of the love of God; and to direct all my forces against it.”

Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?” (2 Corinthians 13:5) (See Psalm 26:2; Lamentations 3:40)

  1. “Resolved, to strive my utmost every week to be brought… to a higher exercise of grace… “

Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ… ” (2 Peter 3:18b)

  1. “Resolved, never henceforward, until I die, to act as if I were any way my own, but entirely and altogether God’s.”

For none of us lives to himself alone and none of us dies to himself alone. If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the LordWe belong to the Lord.” (Romans 14:7, 8a,c) (See 1 Chronicles 29:14; Luke 9:23, 24; Romans 12:2; 14:7-9; 2 Corinthians 5:15; Colossians 3:17)

 Beloved, which of the resolve are starting with? Where do you need to grow more. The year is ending a new year is coming are you going to make it better than this year. Greater Glory is a life that honours and fear the Lord, is that sending a signal to someone today?

Let us begin now and make the above resolves and more our way of life. the Holy Spirit will you if you decide to do so.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
