The Name of Jesus is greater and higher than all names it is not an ordinary Name, is a Name that is full of power and Praise. The Name of Jesus x2 set us free; in sin and sorrow, the Name of Jesus set us free.
Blessed Redeemer, we thank You for waking us up this morning. Thank You for Your protection over us, we are not unmindful of Your banner over us. Hallow be Thy Name, let Thy kingdom come and Thy will be done on earth (Act 21:14).
The call of salvation is not such that is run for today, take a rest tomorrow to continue later, it is a continual race. Till you pass on to eternity. It can be likened to a marathon kind of race. The rule of the game is ‘no loitering; no waiting’ else you become a prey to the enemy.
You must focus else you drift away from the purpose- ‘Eternal Life’. Jesus is so passionate, kind and loving, when Apostle Peter fell, He did not demote Him but restored him to his position; what about Paul, the chief sinner of them all, Christ forgave him and made him a bearer of the gospel to the gentiles.
Mary Magdalene possessed by seven demons was all a fore runner of the gospel even to the Apostle. What befall Judas, he was following Christ for the purse and not grace, he did not the person and mission of Christ, so he fall he not only convicted himself, he condemned himself and hang himself.
Never be too wise in your own eyes, make bible your companion to sieve out the truth about God and the gift of eternal life. He is faithful, kind and loving, He will not in away cast you away, do not be harden.
This is also a call for those who are standing to help those are fallen to stand again (Rom 12:10).

“And when he thought thereon, he wept.” Mark 14:72
It has been thought by some that as long as Peter lived, the fountain of his tears began to flow whenever he remembered his denying his Lord. It is not unlikely that it was so, (for his sin was very great, and grace in him had afterwards a perfect work. This same experience is common to all the redeemed family according to the degree in which the Spirit of God has removed the natural heart of stone. We, like Peter, remember our boastful promise: “Though all men shall forsake Thee, yet will not I.” We eat our own words with the bitter herbs of repentance.
When we think of what we vowed we would be, and of what we have been, we may weep whole showers of grief. He thought on his denying his Lord. The place in which he did it, the little cause which led him into such heinous sin, the oaths and blasphemies with which he sought to confirm his falsehood, and the dreadful hardness of heart which drove him to do so again and yet again.
Can we, when we are reminded of our sins, and their exceeding sinfulness, remain stolid and stubborn? Will we not make our house a Bochim, and cry unto the Lord for renewed assurances of pardoning love? May we never take a dry-eyed look at sin, lest ere long we have a tongue parched in the flames of hell. Peter also thought upon his Master’s look of love. The Lord followed up the cock’s warning voice with an admonitory look of sorrow, pity, and love.
That glance was never out of Peter’s mind so long as he lived. It was far more effectual than ten thousand sermons would have been without the Spirit. The penitent apostle would be sure to weep when he recollected the Saviour’s full forgiveness, which restored him to his former place.
To think that we have offended so kind and good a Lord is more than sufficient reason for being constant weepers. Lord, smite our rocky hearts, and make the waters flow.
Yes! Lord let it flow. Help us to be repentant of our sins and not to make excuses for it O! Lord we pray in Jesus Name. Beloved, do not harden your heart, be sober and let go of all manners flitness, that your life will glorify your Father in heaven. He promised never to cast away. Like Peter we are all vulnerable, don’t try to be older than God, He knows what you are made of. Is only with humility in Spirit that you be His child. The poor in Spirit are children not of poverty but of heart. come as you are my dear, He is ready to meet with you.
Peradventure, you have fallen into sin as a believer, don’t go hiding as Adam, don’t forget that God still found him out. And if you are yet to accept Christ please click here to so now. Don’t buy into the lie of satan, Jesus will never cast you away!
“Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out.” John 6:37
No limit is set to the duration of this promise. It does not merely say, “I will not cast out a sinner at his first coming,” but, “I will in no wise cast out.” The original reads, “I will not, not cast out,” or “I will never, never cast out.” The text means, that Christ will not at first reject a believer; and that as He will not do it at first, so He will not to the last.
But suppose the believer sins after coming? “If any man sin we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” But suppose that believers backslide? “I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for Mine anger is turned away from him.” But believers may fall under temptation! “God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” But the believer may fall into sin as David did! Yes, but He will “Purge them with hyssop, and they shall be clean; He will wash them and they shall be whiter than snow”; “From all their iniquities will I cleanse them.”
“Once in Christ, in Christ for ever,
Nothing from His love can sever.”
“I give unto My sheep,” saith He, “eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.” What sayest thou to this, O trembling feeble mind? Is not this a precious mercy, that coming to Christ, thou dost not come to One who will treat thee well for a little while, and then send thee about thy business, but He will receive thee and make thee His bride, and thou shalt be His for ever?
Receive no longer the spirit of bondage again to fear, but the spirit of adoption whereby thou shalt cry, Abba, Father! Oh! The grace of these words: “I will in no wise cast out.”
He will not cast away. Don’t sit in the dungeon, don’t buy into the lie of satan, Jesus will never, never cast you out, neither will He forsake You. Glory be to God.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
