How excellent x2 is lovingkindness x2 O Lord!. I need You every hour, Most gracious Lord; No tender voice like Thine can peace afford. I need Thee, O I need Thee; Ev’ry hour I need Thee! O bless me now, my Saviour, I come to Thee. You made my life so beautiful and as You are You have made me here on earth, there is nothing greater than You, that is why I love You forever more. I want more of You, Jesus x2. The more I want You, the more want to know you. Jesus more of You.

O Father we thank You for the privilege to have more of You. Thank You Lord, for thou Faithfulness endureth forever more. Thank You Lord for preserving us from all evil that fly by day and at night.

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want, this saying is the confident of a child of God. Yes! But there comes a time when we cannot boldly or confidently said that to our self even if we pretend in the public. What went wrong, if you bother to ask?

Sin we know separates us from the love of God and whoever breaks the edge placed by Lord round His beloved, the serpent will bite. God forbid.

Beloved, are you under the shadow of the Almighty or has the edge broken? Is possible you are not the one whose edge was broken possible is a friend, brother or sister, your child or spouse. What are you doing concerning it.

Are you playing up attitude that it is not your business or are you so concern that you are seeking out ways to restore such a person back to God? Is so important to note that among the many reasons why God did not take you home at salvation is for you to help disciple others.

I feel so uncomfortable when someone is claiming to be so busy that he/she cannot get involve in a noble course like evangelizing and soul winning. Do you know that some action aids soul winning? You may not be directly involve but you action or inaction can go a long way to either make or mar the opportunity to win a perishing soul.

You also forgot that is God that enabled you to have something doing that you are now saying ‘O! Am so busy or I don’t have time’. Let us be very careful that we do not give the devil occasion to tempt us and get us confounded. God forbid.

The soul of an individual is so important to God that He wants us to be involved in saving the perishing one. When an occasion arise that will destruct your schedule, do you first consider whose interest should be serve first, God or yours? Let us not fall into the God’s wrath.

Whatever you are involve in cannot take the place of God neither will it substitute it. We must be all out to ensure that our family, children, friends, relations are all for Christ. Their heart must be panting for Christ.

Don’t ever fall in the category of people who thinks correcting a brother sister is meddling into the affairs of such an individual. I will rather offend you and apologize than assume that all is well even when this person is crossing a rubicon without any outward manifestation in some cases but the spirit of God has alerted you about the backsliding.

Let us stop assuming, confrontation sometime will go a long way to help, even when this person blatantly said that nothing is wrong still follow through till you can establish same yourself, but we must be careful to do all in love. Why, some want to know.

Beloved, do you know the price of a soul before God? Ever come across Jn 3:16, the whole essence of salvation is emphasis in Lk 15:7; 10 and we must be part of this vision. We must be on mission for God to accomplish this all important goal bearing in mind Christ our Passover was sacrifice for us (1 Cor 5:7). And peradventure you loses anything in the course of your ministration for the Kingdom, God ia able to give you much more than this (2 Chr 25; 9c)

Is very possible that the person involved is not seeing what you are seeing and as such will not agree with you even when you point the obvious to him. Let us be careful because the gods of age has blinded their eyes. Read more from the message below and be guided on how to pray:

My brothers, if any among you strays from the truth, and someone turns him back, he should know that whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his life from death and cover a multitude of sins.—James 5:19–20

One of the Christian’s greatest deterrents from sin is the life of another Christian. Some Christians maintain that it is none of their business if another chooses to sin. They are convinced that they are being judgmental if they respond to someone in sin. The world persuades them not to get involved, but this inaction prevents them from being an effective intercessor.

As Christians we are aware that sin brings death (Rom. 6:23). Sin kills relationships, dismantles marriages, stifles joy, and destroys peace. When we see someone wander from the truth into error, how should we respond? When Jesus saw sin it broke His heart. He wept over entire cities as He saw them rejecting the truth (Matt. 23:37–39). He prayed fervently for His disciples to be strong when they were tempted (John 17).

He warned those who were heading toward spiritual failure (Matt. 26:20–25, 34). Jesus was even willing to die to save people from their sins because He knew the devastation that sin causes. Jesus never stood idle as those around Him were led astray by their sin. He always took an active role in turning them back to God.

“Minding your own business” will save you some discomfort, but it will not help a brother sister who needs to return to the Lord. If you are truly aware of the grave consequences for those who continue in sin, you will be moved to weep even as Jesus wept.

 Pray fervently for your friend. That will safeguard your motives and prepare you to minister to him. Be alert, in the event that God asks you to confront your friend. If you do so, be loving and gentle lest you, too, be tempted (Gal. 6:1).

As mentioned earlier, we must be wise in our approach else we being tempted fall. More so the God of this age has blinded them and you need to help them to see where they are missing it in love not in condemnation because you were once like them but Christ saved you from eternal destruction (1 Cor 6:11).

Regarding them: the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers so they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.—2 Corinthians 4:4

When you are blinded, you cannot see things as they really are, even though others around you see them clearly. You cannot experience the full reality of all that is around you. You may feel you are experiencing all that there is to life, yet you may be unaware that you are missing what God desires for you. You may even be in danger because of your blindness and not know it.

Paul warned that the “god of this age” can blind you to the reality of Jesus Christ. Christ’s presence can make a significant difference in your life. However, if Satan convinces you to doubt that Christ can do what He promised, he will have blinded you to the reality of what your life is really like and to what it could become. Others may see what your unbelief causes you to miss, but you will be unaware of it. Your life may be steadily moving toward disaster, but you will be oblivious to it.

Christ comes to you as light (John 1:4, 5, 9). He illuminates your sin so that you see its ugliness and destructiveness. He reveals Himself so that you can appreciate the glory of His person and the marvelous riches He brings. His presence lights your path so that you can see impending danger. Don’t let the god of this age distort your spiritual vision. Don’t be fooled into thinking that everything is as it should be when, in fact, you are missing out on so much that God wants to do in your life. Ask Christ to illuminate your life and let you clearly see your spiritual condition.

Let us pray that God will help to restore our brethren who has fallen and them from eternal destruction. Finally, Gal 1:9-10 – let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Beloved save the soul that is perishing for it worth more than gold (Mk 8:36)

In conclusion, whatever we do in word or deed, let all be to the glory of God (Col 3:17) for he that winneth a soul is wise (Prov 11:30).

Remain blessed in the Lord.
