Luke 16:10-11 “Whoever is faithful in small matters will be faithful in large ones; whoever is dishonest in small matters will be dishonest in large ones. If, then, you have not been faithful in handling worldly wealth, how can you be trusted with true wealth?” (GNT].
We are still wrestling with the question from two days ago, which is, with God’s work, are you a hireling or a shepherd? In your office, in your home and family, are you a hireling or a shepherd? If you are not faithful in that which is another’s, how can God commit even yours to you? A lot of times, Read the rest of this entry
John 10:3 “and because the gatekeeper knows who he is, he opens the gate to let him in. And the sheep recognize the voice of the true Shepherd, for he calls his own by name and leads them out, for they belong to him.” (TPT].
Yesterday, I shared that no matter how noisy the marketplace is, when my grandmother calls me, I hear her voice above all the noise. I cannot explain how I know her voice, I just know it. In an experiment [and you can attempt this as well]; a child and his friend were put inside a room. Read the rest of this entry
John 9:4 “We must work the works of Him Who sent Me and be busy with His business while it is daylight; night is coming on, when no man can work.” (AMPC].
We thank God for His Word; our study of the Book of John has been both revealing and refreshing. We must commit to act on the things God has been revealing to us in His Word. We are now in John Chapter 9 and our discourse over the next few days will be centered on John 9:1- 41 [please read]. Read the rest of this entry
John 6:15 “When Jesus saw that they were ready to force him to be their king, he slipped away into the hills by himself.” (emphasis added).
As parents, we must understand the importance of growing strong roots so that we can model it for and teach it to our children. I shared with you yesterday how the host of a podcast I was listening to was expressing sincere shock at the number of people in their twenties and thirties that want to be Read the rest of this entry
John 6:11-12 “…And they all ate as much as they wanted. After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples, “Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted.” (emphasis added).
Every time Jesus provided, He always provided more than enough. They had more than enough. We need to shred the scarcity mentality, even in our homes. There are homes where it is ‘Daddy’ that rations what everybody eats. Read the rest of this entry
John 5:20 “For the Father loves the Son and shows him everything he is doing. In fact, the Father will show him how to do even greater works than healing this man. Then you will truly be astonished.” (emphasis added).
John 21:15-17 “After breakfast Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter replied, “you know I love you.” “Then feed my lambs,” Jesus told him. Jesus repeated the question: “Simon son of John, do you love me?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter said, “you know I love you.” “Then take care of my sheep,” Jesus said. A third time he asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep.” God measures our love for Him by our service for His people. Read the rest of this entry
John 3:30 “He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.”
Jesus was an equalizer he came to show man that nobody is better than anybody. In Luke 14:7-11 [please read], Jesus advised that when you go to a party, do not take the front seat because someone greater than you can come. Jesus is saying, people are on different levels. Read the rest of this entry
John 4:28-29 “The woman left her water jar beside the well and ran back to the village, telling everyone, “Come and see a man who told me everything I ever did! Could he possibly be the Messiah?”
The Psalmist said in Ps.84:10 “A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked.” (emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry
John 1:38 “Jesus looked around and saw them following. “What do you want?” he asked them. They replied, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), where are you staying?’”
Yesterday, we looked at Jesus’ first words in the Book of John and how we would respond if Jesus asked us that exact question. We are confident that we would receive what we have asked for in Jesus Name. Read the rest of this entry
