Ageless One, how pleasing it is to come into your presence this morning, Thank You Lord for the safety granted unto us, the protections, provisions, Love, Peace and security all through last week and we know You are able to do more than we can ever imagine or think about. Let Your Name alone be glorified in Jesus Name.
Beloved, what a privilege to enter into the Holies of Holy and part take of the Lord’s Table. As we gather at His feet to learn and be built, may He make us a good workmanship approved unto every good works, may His grace be available to us, may we be filled to overflowing and be healed of every infirmities in the Name of Jesus.
Beloved, do you know that a call to salvation is a call to duty? A service unto the Lord. It is on behalf of every born- again child of God to respond to kingdom business. Are you there already or are you thinking you are not part of, it is for some specific individuals.
We are all part of that body of Christ, God has put you somewhere to influence people in that environment for Him. Are you doing that? Or you are waiting for an ideal time to evangelize, there may never be such a time, keep doing it as you move along in life, that way, we will all contribute our quota especially now the end time is here with us.
A glorious life is a living to God’s honour and we dare not dishonor God by the way we live. Unbelievers should be able to see Jesus through us. That is, our lives should be ensign to all seeking Jesus. Are you ready to make your life an ensign come along with me as read more on this below:
“We live unto the Lord.” Romans 14:8
If God had willed it, each of us might have entered heaven at the moment of conversion. It was not absolutely necessary for our preparation for immortality that we should tarry here. It is possible for a man to be taken to heaven, and to be found meet to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light, though he has but just believed in Jesus.
It is true that our sanctification is a long and continued process, and we shall not be perfected till we lay aside our bodies and enter within the veil; but nevertheless, had the Lord so willed it, He might have changed us from imperfection to perfection, and have taken us to heaven at once.
Why then are we here? Would God keep His children out of paradise a single moment longer than was necessary? Why is the army of the living God still on the battle-field when one charge might give them the victory? Why are His children still wandering hither and thither through a maze, when a solitary word from His lips would bring them into the centre of their hopes in heaven?
The answer is—they are here that they may “live unto the Lord,” and may bring others to know His love. We remain on earth as sowers to scatter good seed; as ploughmen to break up the fallow ground; as heralds publishing salvation. We are here as the “salt of the earth,” to be a blessing to the world. We are here to glorify Christ in our daily life.
We are here as workers for Him, and as “workers together with Him.” Let us see that our life answereth its end. Let us live earnest, useful, holy lives, to “the praise of the glory of His grace.” Meanwhile we long to be with Him, and daily sing—
“My heart is with Him on His throne,
And ill can brook delay;
Each moment listening for the voice,
‘Rise up, and come away.'”
God created us for His own glory (Isa 43:7), is your life depiting His glory, His blessedness, come on you are created in the image of God and the devil knows who you are more than you do and that is why he is making to cut corners thereby sinning against your creator thereby living below the standard God originally planned for your life. Adam lost his glory in the garden and God moved him from taking care of the garden to tilling the land.
Are you still my beloved, but the good news is that God has also provided a way of ascape for you and for me. Click here to give your life to Jesus. somebody is eager to know, come along with me as we consider the next message to see a way out. Glory be to God!
“Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling.” 2Timothy 1:9
The apostle uses the perfect tense and says, “Who hath saved us.” Believers in Christ Jesus are saved. They are not looked upon as persons who are in a hopeful state, and may ultimately be saved, but they are already saved. Salvation is not a blessing to be enjoyed upon the dying bed, and to be sung of in a future state above, but a matter to be obtained, received, promised, and enjoyed now.
The Christian is perfectly saved in God’s purpose; God has ordained him unto salvation, and that purpose is complete. He is saved also as to the price which has been paid for him: “It is finished” was the cry of the Saviour ere He died. The believer is also perfectly saved in His covenant head, for as he fell in Adam, so he lives in Christ. This complete salvation is accompanied by a holy calling.
Those whom the Saviour saved upon the cross are in due time effectually called by the power of God the Holy Spirit unto holiness: they leave their sins; they endeavour to be like Christ; they choose holiness, not out of any compulsion, but from the stress of a new nature, which leads them to rejoice in holiness just as naturally as aforetime they delighted in sin.
God neither chose them nor called them because they were holy, but He called them that they might be holy, and holiness is the beauty produced by His workmanship in them. The excellencies which we see in a believer are as much the work of God as the atonement itself. Thus is brought out very sweetly the fulness of the grace of God.
Salvation must be of grace, because the Lord is the author of it: and what motive but grace could move Him to save the guilty? Salvation must be of grace, because the Lord works in such a manner that our righteousness is for ever excluded.
Such is the believer’s privilege—a present salvation; such is the evidence that he is called to it—a holy life.
Beloved, it is indeed a privilege least anyone may boast except the cross of Jesus Christ (Gal 6:14). Brethren, you can only maintain your salvation through humility and God’s grace (1 Pet. 5:5-6)
Salvation in Christ is born out of God’s love, He went to the cross while you are still dead in your sin and He is now beckoning on you to come and part take of that salvation He bought for you. Will you be willing and obedient? For His goodness and glory on our life is imbedded in our obedience to His Word.
Beloved, what a beautiful way the Lord chose to start with us this week, is going to be indeed a glorious week, a week to remember, keep a date with us as the Lord is set again to reveal to us His mysteries through His Word. Don’t miss out!
Finally, beloved, this week is blessed, it has been ordained to be a week to remember in your life for good, God is turning your story around. Your shifting ground this week; whether the devil likes it not you are moving to your next level, only by ready to obey that small still voice as He leads you, don’t revolt or you miss Him. You are moving into your glory! Praise God!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
