Great is Thy faithfulness great is Thy faithfulness, morning by morning new mercies I see, all that I needed Thy hand has provided great is Thy faithfulness  Lord unto Thee, // I will Praise Thee forever, I will Praise Thee forever Lord, I will Praise Thee forever more.

Heavenly Father, we come to thank You this day for the grace to be alive and well. Thank You for Your love that has no end. How wonderful are works Lord, You are great and greatly to be Praise. Who is like unto Thee. The heaven is your Throne and the earth Your footstool and we are Your creature O Praise be to Your Name forever and ever.

Faithful God how much can we use to pay back all the goodness You bestowed on us? even is our bodies are tongues is will not be enough to Praise You and that is why we come to say thank You, thank You and thank You again, glory, adoration be unto Thee alone in Jesus Name.

Beloved, how are doing? Hope your week end was smooth? Glory be to God? Do you have testimony with regard to the theme of the month or the season we are in. o I have a lot to testify to the glory of God what He is doing and will continue to do in my life, family and ministry. Praise God!

Before I go ahead with today’s topic I will like to further comment on the topic of last week Friday. Beloved, is grace an opportunity to continue in sin and believe that God is gracious and will always forgive us our sins?

Let read Rom 6:1 – What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid Romans 6:1-2 (KJV) Beloved, the Word of God said “God forbid.” I also concur, God forbid. I will never take the grace of God upon my life for granted neither will I have it as a ground to continue in sin. God forbid.

Beloved rather we are to reflect the beauty of God in all our undertaking. In all we do we are epistle of our Lord Jesus.  We are the aroma of our Lord Jesus. We are the bible of our Lord Jesus which an unbeliever will read and turn to Christ. Praise the Lord.

Beloved often times we pray and ask God for some things that we will not respond to if God wants to bring it to past. In order word, if God wants to answer our pray.

For you to reflect God’s beauty, you must conform to the image of our Lord. We must be willing to die to sin and hate sin as our Lord Jesus Christ did at the cross of Calvary. Praise the Lord.

Beloved, a reflector of God’s beauty must not live in sin. Must be willing to offer his/her life as a sacrificial offering to God as did Christ.

Some claim that Jesus has die for their sin therefore they are not call to die again but let me shock you, turn your bible to Rom 6:2 and read down to the end. Beloved, you are to die to sin and yield not your member to any work of unrighteousness. As Christ die for our sin, you are called to die to sin, self (flesh), and to world. And Christ having risen from sin; you have also risen from sin and live unto righteous living. May God help you understanding in Jesus Name.

To further help us in understanding this topic is to understand the word “man”. Man is divided into three nature – the Natural man, the carnal Man and the Spirit filled man.

Beloved, a natural man can never please God. his naturally attracted to sin and desires to do evil. A carnal man took a step further by the workings of the Holy Spirit, he has been save – born again but he is limited because he allow some level of compromise in his life and can easily backslid if he is living daily to please God. A spiritual man has pass through the two stages below, however he is constantly under the counsel of the Holy Spirit and he is willing to live as he is directed by Holy Spirit irrespective of the pain and price. Beloved, the Spirit filled man is the only man that can reflect the beauty of God if given the same opportunity to the three nature of man.

Were are you? or better still who are you? What nature or stage are you in your spiritual life? if you are yet to attain to the last stage of man’s nature read Jas 4:6.

Let discover more below:

“As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.” Ps. 17:15

The portion of other men fills their bodies, and enriches their children, but the portion of the believer is of another sort. Men of the world have their treasure in this world, but men of the world to come look higher and further.

Our possession is twofold. We have God’s presence here and His likeness hereafter. Here we behold the face of the Lord in righteousness, for we are justified in Christ Jesus. Oh, the joy of beholding the face of a reconciled God! The glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ yields us Heaven below, and it will be to us the Heaven of Heaven above.

But seeing does not end it: we are to be changed into that which we gaze upon. We shall sleep a while and then wake up to find ourselves as mirrors which reflect the beauties of our Lord. Faith sees God with a transforming look. The heart receives the image of Jesus into its own depths, till the character of Jesus is imprinted on the soul. This is satisfaction. To see God and to be like Him — what more can I desire? David’s assured confidence is here by the Holy Ghost made to be the Lord’s promise. I believe it. I expect it. Lord, vouchsafe it. Amen.

Beloved, do you know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If a man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is Holy, which temple ye are (1 Cor 3:16).

And when that happen beloved you will experience what we have below. Read to discover more:

“Faultless before the presence of His glory.” Jude 1:24

 

Revolve in your mind that wondrous word, faultless!” We are far off from it now; but as our Lord never stops short of perfection in His work of love, we shall reach it one day. The Saviour who will keep His people to the Lend, will also present them at last to Himself, as “a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing, but holy and without blemish.”

All the jewels in the Saviour’s crown are of the first water and without a single flaw. All the maids of honour who attend the Lamb’s wife are pure virgins without spot or stain. But how will Jesus make us faultless? He will wash us from our sins in His own blood until we are white and fair as God’s purest angel; and we shall be clothed in His righteousness, that righteousness which makes the saint who wears it positively faultless; yea, perfect in the sight of God. We shall be unblameable and unreproveable even in His eyes. His law will not only have no charge against us, but it will be magnified in us.

Moreover, the work of the Holy Spirit within us will be altogether complete. He will make us so perfectly holy, that we shall have no lingering tendency to sin. Judgment, memory, will—every power and passion shall be emancipated from the thraldom of evil. We shall be holy even as God is holy, and in His presence we shall dwell for ever. Saints will not be out of place in heaven, their beauty will be as great as that of the place prepared for them.

Oh the rapture of that hour when the everlasting doors shall be lifted up, and we, being made meet for the inheritance, shall dwell with the saints in light. Sin gone, Satan shut out, temptation past for ever, and ourselves “faultless” before God, this will be heaven indeed! Let us be joyful now as we rehearse the song of eternal praise so soon to roll forth in full chorus from all the blood-washed host; let us copy David’s exultings before the ark as a prelude to our ecstasies before the throne.

Beloved, what a glorious moment it will be on that glorious day, when the Jesus will appear in His glory to take us home either we are still in this body or not. We will not miss the homecoming beloved. That is why we must work as to reflect His beauty afterall. We must work to be faultless in the Name of Jesus. We must work to appear holy before the judgment of God. Glory be to God on high.

Yes! We are Christ epistle – 2 Cor 3:3, and if you are asking or finding it difficult to align yourself to this teaching I believe the Spirit of God will help you – Ps 124:8. We must work to be faultless. Jesus is working in us to bring it to pass that is how to enter into the theme of the year- your greater glory. No atom of sin must be found in you. (1 Tim 6:11; 2 Cor 6:14- 18)

Beloved, have a wonderful week as we declare this week blessed in the

Name of the Lord and return with testimonies in the Name of the Lord.

Remain blessed in the Lord
