The Cost to Others


Who is like unto thee, O Lord! Who is like unto thee, O Lord! Among the gods who is like thee, You are glorious in holiness fearful in praises doing wonders alleluia 2x. all the glory must be for He is worthy of our Praise no man on earth should be glory to Himself all the glory must be to you O Lord!

Let the earth rejoice and people be glad that Lord God reign. Thank You Father for Your mercies that enduerth forever and ever. Who is like unto my God Who made us higher than the angels that obey His bidding. Thank You Father be Thou exalted. Thank You for the gift of today it can only be You, be Thou Praise forever. We are grateful for Your wonders in our lives, be Thou magnify in Jesus Name.

Beloved, how has been? The month is gradually rolling by, has God been good to you? Do you have any reason to Praise Him? Okay can you still Praise Him in spite of all your feelings and disappointments? Is good you know that God owns no man rather we are indebted to Him for so many things He has done for us.

We talk about gratitude that is from the depth of our heart, we should consider the salutation of Elizabeth to Mary and Mary’s response to her (Lk 1:40-55).

The greeting was instantaneous and full of adoration. Beloved such gratitude lifts the Name of God high and it draws blessings down to us. Praise God.

We considered the necessary adjustment the calling of God in our lives might place on us and today we are going to consider the cost of such callings to those around us. Oftentimes it might not be palatable but it is a way we must go and at such a time what is required of us.

What are those things we must do to help us fill the mandate placed on our life. Jesus sojourned to the cross brought devastation to the Apostles, a knife pierced the heart His mother and faithful that supported His ministry with their materials and substances.

So it has been from the beginning and so shall it continued to be so what do we do in order to stand strong in place our faith.

To know what to do will be easy and well understood if we know what is in for us God has many blessing on the line for as many as we deny themselves and serve Him.

God is willing and have blessed all with spiritual blessings. If God did not bless His own who then will He bless? It will be an aberration for God to bless the ungodly as many terms it to be to the detriment of His children. The Word of God has no proof to such in it therefore we must believe the lies from the pit of hell.

We are blessed will all spiritual blessings. Come along with to us discover more:

Standing by the cross of Jesus were His mother, His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.—John 19:25

There is no Christianity without a cross, for you cannot be a disciple of Jesus without taking up your cross. Crosses are painful, they forever change your life, but sometimes the greatest cost will not be to you but to those you love. You may be prepared to obey the Lord’s commands, whatever they are, because you’ve walked with Him and know that His way is best. Yet there will be those close to you who have not related to Jesus in the same way and have not heard His voice as clearly.

Jesus understood that His Father’s will for Him led to a cross. The cross would mean a painful death for Jesus, and it would also bring suffering to those closest to Him. Because of the cross, Jesus’ mother would watch in agony as her son was publicly humiliated, tortured, and murdered. Jesus’ aunt and close friends would witness His excruciating death. His disciples would be scattered in terror and confusion in what would be the longest, darkest night of their lives. Because of Jesus’ obedience, there would also be a cross for each of His disciples.

Obedience to your Lord’s commands will affect others (Luke 14:26). Don’t refuse to obey what you know God is asking because you fear the cost to your family will be too great. Beware lest you seek to prevent those you love from taking up the cross God has for them.

Don’t ever try to protect those you love by disobeying God. The cost of disobedience is always far greater. Rather, look to Jesus, your model, and see what it cost those around Him for Him to be obedient to His Father.

I have my fair share of the topic before us but I can tell you that God’s did not call the children of Israel to worship Him in vain is my testimony and someone will also have same testimonies to share. Glory be to God on high.

“Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings.” Ephesians 1:3


All the goodness of the past, the present, and the future, Christ bestows upon His people. In the mysterious ages of the past the Lord Jesus was His Father’s first elect, and in His election He gave us an interest, for we were chosen in Him from before the foundation of the world. He had from all eternity the prerogatives of Sonship, as His Father’s only-begotten and well-beloved Son, and He has, in the riches of His grace, by adoption and regeneration, elevated us to sonship also, so that to us He has given “power to become the sons of God.” The eternal covenant, based upon suretiship and confirmed by oath, is ours, for our strong consolation and security.

In the everlasting settlements of predestinating wisdom and omnipotent decree, the eye of the Lord Jesus was ever fixed on us; and we may rest assured that in the whole roll of destiny there is not a line which militates against the interests of His redeemed. The great betrothal of the Prince of Glory is ours, for it is to us that He is affianced, as the sacred nuptials shall ere long declare to an assembled universe.

The marvellous incarnation of the God of heaven, with all the amazing condescension and humiliation which attended it, is ours. The bloody sweat, the scourge, the cross, are ours for ever. Whatever blissful consequences flow from perfect obedience, finished atonement, resurrection, ascension, or intercession, all are ours by His own gift.

Upon His breastplate he is now bearing our names; and in His authoritative pleadings at the throne He remembers our persons and pleads our cause. His dominion over principalities and powers, and His absolute majesty in heaven, He employs for the benefit of them who trust in Him.

His high estate is as much at our service as was His condition of abasement. He who gave Himself for us in the depths of woe and death, doth not withdraw the grant now that He is enthroned in the highest heavens.

Beloved, look steadily unto Jesus the author and finisher of your faith, hold on Him and it shall be well with you. You will testify in Jesus Name.

This year victorious living will not elude you in Jesus Name; it must be a reality in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
