When Light Flows, III

Prov. 27:17 “Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend [to show rage or worthy purpose].” (AMPC)

My light flows and shines when I call things that be not as though they were and my light flows when I am engaged in community. There are things that you want to get, there are levels of light and revelation that you need for life that will only come when you do life with other Christians. Read the rest of this entry

Idiōtēs

Acts 4:13 “When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. (NIV, emphasis added)

In other words, the only significant thing about Peter and John was that they had been with Jesus. These men were unschooled and ordinary, yet they were doing amazing things, extraordinary things. Read the rest of this entry

Worship Stance, I

2 Sam.6:18-19 “Then he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of heaven and gave a present to everyone—men and women alike—of a loaf of bread, some wine, and a cake of raisins. When it was all over, and everyone had gone home” (TLB)

Today’s anchor scripture is a demonstration of letting your worship flow into your words and deeds. Even though David had sacrificed after every six steps, he went further to sacrifice again when the Ark of God entered Jerusalem. Read the rest of this entry

I Will

Ps.108:1-3 “My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart! Wake up, lyre and harp! I will wake the dawn with my song.  I will thank you, Lord, among all the people. I will sing your praises among the nations.” (emphasis added)

David is teaching us something very crucial about active worship in today’s anchor scripture which is, sometimes you need to tell yourself to get up and praise God. There will be times that you will need to command yourself to be active in worship. Read the rest of this entry

Centre of Attraction

John 4:23 ““It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship.” (MSG, emphasis added)

We must be big on worship as people of God. Worship must be a huge part of your identity as a disciple of Christ Jesus. The truth is that the most important thing that we do is worship. Read the rest of this entry

On Trial

Matt. 1:18 “This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit”

The first joy killer in our lives during Christmas and beyond is anxiety, and the second is resentment over hurt or bitterness. When Mary told Joseph that she was pregnant, Joseph was hurt because he knew the baby was not for him. So, what did Joseph do when he was hurt? Read the rest of this entry

Expressions

John 21:17 Then Jesus asked him again, “Peter, son of John, do you have great affection for me?” Peter was saddened by being asked the third time and said, “My Lord, you know everything. You know that I burn with love for you!” Jesus replied, “Then feed my lambs!” (TPT)

Your expression of love to God depends on your level with God. How an ‘infant’ – a baby Christian, will  express love to God is different from how ‘a child’ in God that is not an infant will express love. How a ‘teenager’ in Christ will express love is different from how a ‘child’ would. Read the rest of this entry

Lead-A-Sheep

John 21:9 “When they got there, they found breakfast waiting for them—fish cooking over a charcoal fire, and some bread.”

What do you say to boys that you left, and you expected them to be waiting for the baptism of the Holy Spirit and going for missions, but they have gone back to fishing? You saw them for the first time and you are making breakfast. ‘Boys, come and eat breakfast.’ Read the rest of this entry

This Too

John 19:19,21-22  “And Pilate posted a sign on the cross that read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” …Then the leading priests objected and said to Pilate, “Change it from ‘The King of the Jews’ to ‘He said, I am King of the Jews.’” Pilate replied, “No, what I have written, I have written.”

John 19:38-39Afterward Joseph of Arimathea, who had been a secret disciple of Jesus (because he feared the Jewish leaders), asked Pilate for permission to take down Jesus’ body. When Pilate gave permission, Joseph came and took the body away. With him came Nicodemus, the man who had come to Jesus at night. He brought about seventy-five pounds of perfumed ointment made from myrrh and aloes.” Read the rest of this entry

Note This

Isa.53:5 “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”

John 19:1Then Pilate had Jesus flogged with a lead-tipped whip.” The whip used here is known as flagrum. It is no ordinary whip; it is a collection of heavy leather straps into which bone, glass, and led balls were embedded. Read the rest of this entry
