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?
Luke 6:46-47 (KJV)
46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
James 1:21-22 (KJV)
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
Oh Lord, I pray that people will wake up to live for You, starting today. May they truly desire to live a life that is pleasing in Your sight and no longer walk in sin. May You take them by the hands and lead them out of the darkness and into Your light. I know that there are many people on a road to destruction, where in their eyes, they feel like they are saved. I do not wish these people to die this way and to face the truth of their actions come judgement day. Instead, I wish people would start reading the Bible daily and find time to truly give themselves over to You in prayer. Maybe then will they start seeking You more often and desire to have a relationship with You, God. Then, will they be led by the Spirit and enjoy Your blessings from above. I know that our own works can do nothing good for our future, but Your good works, plus our faith, can move mountains. We can do all things with the Spirit of God in our lives. Nothing is impossible with You Jesus giving us direction. I am truly blessed, Lord, just to know Your will, by reading the Bible daily and through prayer. Your words have helped deepen my walk with You and now I can truly do what You have said. My walk is no longer led by my own hand but by Your works in my life. Thank You for taking me away from my hurtful desires. I was on rocky ground until you firmly placed me on Your rock. Now I am safe and am able to endure in this faith till the end. I am grateful for everything You have done for my life and pray that You will continue to lead me in the ways that are right. I trust in You Lord. I love You. Amen.
Now that we have defined what a true Christian is, I would like you to think to yourself if you are living a life of a Christian. Continue Reading
Jeremiah 23:5,6 (KJV)
5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.
The promised Messiah has come down in the flesh to save us all from our sins. His Name is Jesus, and through Him we are saved.
We are so blessed to have Jesus come down and pay the price for our sins on the cross. He has opened the doors to salvation.
Every person will be resurrected from the dead. After that, heaven or hell will be our destination. Are you ready?
