Advantage IV

2 Cor.1:22 and he has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first instalment that guarantees everything he has promised us.”

The first thing that you need to do to develop your relationship with the Holy Spirit is, you need to hunger for Him. You need to thirst for Him. If you are not thirsty, you cannot drink the water He is pouring out. You can taste the water, but you cannot really drink the water. Read the rest of this entry

Advantage II

Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Yesterday, we looked at two benefits of walking with the Holy Spirit and they are: The Holy Spirit Teaches Us To Pray And Gives Us A Prayer Language and The Holy Spirit Comes Bearing Gifts. Read the rest of this entry

Advantage I

John 7:37-38On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”

Accept It!

Philip.2:6 “Though he was God he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to.”

The Call

Dan.3:17 “If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18 But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.”

God’s Favourite House is not a Baptist church, or an Anglican church, or a Catholic church, or even a Pentecostal church. God’s Favourite House is a church of Jesus Christ. We believe in baptism, we believe in the order of Read the rest of this entry

Public Knowledge

“So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority” Col.2:10 [emphasis added]

 

It is amazing that it is the same issues that the church in Colossae had. “ These rules may seem wise because they require strong devotion, pious self-denial, and severe bodily discipline. But they provide no help in conquering a person’s evil desires. No help! It is only in Christ that we have help. It is only in Christ that our obedience is complete. And obedience Read the rest of this entry
