Speaking of someone that God was still able to use during the most difficult of times was Paul, the apostle. Continue Reading
Romans 12:3,4 (KJV)
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
Even when things are going great with your life and with God, be careful not to lift up yourself in your pride but in God alone.
We witness in order to open the eyes of the lost to the cross of Jesus and His resurrection, that they may be forgiven.
When our blinders come off, we will finally see the truth of the gospel of Jesus and be set free from the power of sin and death.
Acts 26:15-18 (KJV)
15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
Oh Lord, I pray that more people will experience the blessings of living for You and Your kingdom. It is surely a blessing to be a part of Your plan and to be led by You. So often have I fallen because of my own desires to do my own things and this has left me empty and guilty. I am never satisfied when I do things that are only for my own well-being, while other people are left out. This is the kind of life that I do not miss. Not only was I selfish, but family suffered because of my actions. Now that I have given my life to You, Jesus, every person is benefited. It is because Your great love has come into my life, that doors have been opened. Instead of just going out to eat, I now look to make sure that others are not in need. When I am on the road, I make sure that people's needs are met also, so I stop and care for them when I see any person that needs prayer, hungry or cold. If there is anything that I have that can benefit another, I will surely give it them. And my greatest thing to do is to witness for You, Jesus. To see others be blessed and come unto You, is the greatest gift I could ever receive. I know that the things I mentioned are because of Your presence in my life. If I do anything that seems good, it is because You have done it through me. Because I have sought Your hand, is when I get these good instincts to serve and bless one another. May my life ever be willing to look to You, that people will find comfort and peace through my actions. You are my love and I wish to showcase that same love to all people. I say these things in Your holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
The message that I have to share with people comes from the Bible and by of the Holy Spirit. This I teach and preach that all people will be drawn unto the Lord and repent. Continue Reading
If you are a witness for Jesus, then you will know that great opportunities and miracles will take place, along with persecution.
Nobody said being a witness for Christ would be easy. However, it is worth it when we can be a part of the lost being saved.
Acts 25:9-11 (KJV)
9 But Festus, willing to do the Jews a pleasure, answered Paul, and said, Wilt thou go up to Jerusalem, and there be judged of these things before me?
10 Then said Paul, I stand at Caesar's judgment seat, where I ought to be judged: to the Jews have I done no wrong, as thou very well knowest.
11 For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Caesar.
James 1:12 (KJV)
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
I pray, Lord, that more people will have a heart for evangelism. May every believer desire to be a witness for You, Jesus. Even if there is fear and doubt in these people now, may they be humbled to a point that Your will may overcome any faults of their own. Will you come inside of them and instill boldness and courage, as they look to You in faith? It may seem like a very large task at hand to go into Your harvest. People may think that they will have nothing to say and will back down in fear because of this, but I know that You can take any person and make them great in Your sight. I know this because You have taken a person like me, who has a stuttering problem, and allow me to find words to speak. In my confidence in You, I am able to articulate my words in a way that people can understand. Even the proud are laid low because of the words that flow through my mouth. This I know that I could never do this, unless the Spirit was with me, leading me to know what to say. You are the one, God, that opens every door and leads me to have divine appointments. Each week, it is a new person to search out and draw unto You. This surely is a blessing to be Your messenger. I just pray that more people will join me in the harvest. One thing that saddens me is that less and less people are willing to get out there and proclaim Your great name. Instead, they are busy doing other thing that are not pleasing in Your sight. I've even heard people say they get bored sometimes. Well, one thing I know Lord is that being a Christian never brings boredom. I am always busy and it brings me so much happiness. Thank You for leading the way in my life. I love You. Amen.
While in the service of God there will be persecution, even to the point of death. Nobody said that being a witness for Christ will come easy, instead it comes with a lot of hard work and tears. Continue Reading
You are not a true Christian unless you are doing what Jesus says. So read the Bible daily and start being obedient to God.
A Christian is not only a believer in Jesus but also a doer of the Word. So how can we do this if we do not read the Bible daily?
