When I survey the wondrous cross on
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride
Our Father, we thank You we bless our Holy Name, we adore You, we give You glory, adoration to You alone Who is worthy of my Praise. Thank You for all Your Divine assistant and blessings showers upon your children. blessed Your Name forever.
Forever O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven. Thank You for being there for us, thank You for Your love that endureth forever. When we are weak; You become our strength, thank You Lord, we are grateful to You Lord. I am most grateful to Your Kindness towards me, I give You Praise.
Beloved, how are doing? Great! I suppose. Praise God. Let us be glad that it pleased God to preserve us from all evil and to keep us in path of righteousness.
Is prayer time, can I hear Praise the Lord. Prayer is the key. It is indeed the master key. It is the universal key that when it opens no one can close. Do you hear that? When you pray and God harken, he send down your request without wasting time but if the time is not ripe, he still answers by saying hold on. Praise the Lord.
Prayer like bodily exercise energizes the spirit, soul and body. It keeps you fit and refreshes your soul. Beloved, what are those needs that is weighing down your spirit? Remember that vex spirit cannot do much.
Jesus prayed for His disciple to be one. talking about unity, one mind, one Spirit is what Jesus prayed for disciples before He went to the cross.
What is happening in the body of Christ today? Can it be said that they are one? Why are wars among brethren, family, husband and wife, children against parents and vice versa? Satan is waging war against the body of Christ. Luring many to hell. Using divide and rule method, satan oppress the children of God but woo betide that man and woman through who the devil will use to send many to hell.
Brethren, we need to pray for oneness in the body of Christ, in our home and in our life.
We also pray that God will deliver us from presumption sin.
May they all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You. May they also be one in Us, so the world may believe You sent Me.—John 17:21
God often speaks of human relationships as a part of His mission to redeem a lost world (John 13:20; Matt. 25:40). One reason He gives for a husband and wife to live in unity is so they can produce a “godly seed,” that is, children who love and obey God, who can be used in God’s mission to bring redemption to a lost world (Mal. 2:14–15).
Similarly, the church is the body of Christ. A church cannot be on mission with the Father in our world if its members are waging war with one another (1 Cor. 12:12). There is a crucial connection between our relationships with others and the salvation of those around us.
We might assume that during Jesus’ prayer before His crucifixion, He would have prayed that His disciples would have courage, or would remain faithful, or would remember what they had been taught. Yet He asked that His followers would remain united in their love for one another. Jesus understood that it is spiritually impossible to love God but not love others.
A test of your love for God is to examine your love for others. Our tendency is to say, “Heavenly Father, the problem is not between You and me. I love You with all my heart. I just don’t love my brother.” And God says, “That is an impossibility. You cannot love Me without loving the ones for whom My Son died” (John 13:34–35).
Your life will not convince those around you of the reality of Jesus if you cannot live in unity with your fellow Christians.
Can that be said of you that you live one with another in unity? May God help us and keep us, we cannot help ourselves but I know that God will help us, help us O Lord we pray Thee in Jesus Name! Keep back your servant from presumption sins O my God. Let’s discover more:
“Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins.” Psalm 19:13
Such was the prayer of the “man after God’s own heart.” Did holy David need to pray thus? How needful, then, must such a prayer be for us babes in grace! It is as if he said, “Keep me back, or I shall rush headlong over the precipice of sin.” Our evil nature, like an ill-tempered horse, is apt to run away. May the grace of God put the bridle upon it, and hold it in, that it rush not into mischief. What might not the best of us do if it were not for the checks which the Lord sets upon us both in providence and in grace!
The psalmist’s prayer is directed against the worst form of sin—that which is done with deliberation and wilfulness. Even the holiest need to be “kept back” from the vilest transgressions. It is a solemn thing to find the apostle Paul warning saints against the most loathsome sins. “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.”
What! do saints want warning against such sins as these? Yes, they do. The whitest robes, unless their purity be preserved by divine grace, will be defiled by the blackest spots. Experienced Christian, boast not in your experience; you will trip yet if you look away from Him who is able to keep you from falling.
Ye whose love is fervent, whose faith is constant, whose hopes are bright, say not, “We shall never sin,” but rather cry, “Lead us not into temptation.” There is enough tinder in the heart of the best of men to light a fire that shall burn to the lowest hell, unless God shall quench the sparks as they fall.
Who would have dreamed that righteous Lot could be found drunken, and committing uncleanness? Hazael said, “Is Thy servant a dog, that he should do this thing?” and we are very apt to use the same self-righteous question. May infinite wisdom cure us of the madness of self-confidence.
Give us wisdom to hide behind the cross and never depend on ourselves. May God help us and shield us from presumption sins in Jesus Name.
Hear us O Lord as we pray in Jesus Name. Let our prayer come up like a smoke and come down with dews from heaven in Jesus Name. Beloved, let God keep us as one forever and ever in Jesus Name. Deliver us from presumption sins we pray Thee in Jesus Name. Amen!
May the death of Christ not be in vain in our lives in Jesus Name.
- Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to His blood.
- See from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
- Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
