Ephesians 3:21 “Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.”
We are still on the question – ‘why church?’ Remember, the longer we stay with the question, the deeper our revelation. So, why church, why do we exist? Beginning today, we will be looking at four main reasons why we exist. The first is, we exist to celebrate God’s Presence [Worship]. When we gather, we celebrate the presence of our King, our God, and our Maker. Read the rest of this entry
Psalm 127:1 “Except the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; except the Lord keeps the city, the watchman wakes but in vain.” (AMPC)
The second Biblical attitude for work metamorphosis, and to have a work that God blesses is, You Must I Must Understand Who You Are Really Working For. Even if you are self-employed or running your business, you are still not working for yourself. Read the rest of this entry
Matthew 28:19-20 “…wherever you go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. And teach them to faithfully follow all that I have commanded you. And never forget that I am with you every day….” (TPT)
Imagine you get to heaven, walking on the streets of gold, relishing the scenery, and enjoying the presence of Jehovah. Then somebody walks up to you and says, ‘Thank you! It is because of you that I made it here’. And you are like, ‘I do not even know you…’ and the person says, ‘Yes, you do not know me. Read the rest of this entry
Romans 13:8 “Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbour, you will fulfil the requirements of God’s law.”
So far we have looked at five of the seven things we need to do to experience metamorphosis in our spiritual health. LOVE JESUS Supremely. MEET WITH HIM Daily. STUDY And DO God’s Word. TITHE Your Income. Learn To LOVE Other Believers. Spiritual growth happens in community. Read the rest of this entry
Philip.2:9 “Because of that obedience, God exalted him and multiplied his greatness! He has now been given the greatest of all names!” (TPT).
What has God said to you? What are you doing? That is how you will know if humility is flowing, or you are cutting off the flow. In all my years of pastoring and counselling couples through marital issues, I cannot remember any party in the marriage admitting that it was his or her Read the rest of this entry
Lu.22:27 “Who is more important, the one who sits at the table or the one who serves? The one who sits at the table, of course. But not here! For I am among you as one who serves.” (emphasis added).
Even among the disciples Jesus had to deal with the matter of humility. Lu.22:24 -26 “Then they began to argue among themselves about who would be the greatest among them. Jesus told them, “In this world the kings and great men lord it over their people, yet they are called ‘friends of the people.’ But among you it will be different. Those who are the greatest among you should take the lowest rank, and the leader should be like a servant.” Read the rest of this entry
2 Kings 20:2-3 “Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Remember, Lord, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.” (NIV).
We kick-off today’s devotional by reading 2 Kings 20:1-6. The Bible says that Hezekiah was at the point of death; but the point of prayer can erase the point of death. Hezekiah made a case for himself. Read the rest of this entry
Matt. 20:28 “For even the Son of Man did not come expecting to be served but to serve and give his life in exchange for the salvation of many.” (TPT).
Luke 17:10 “And that’s how it should be with you. When you’ve done all you should, then say, “We are merely servants, and we have simply done our duty.” (CEV, emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry
John 21:7 “Then the disciple Jesus loved said to Peter, “It’s the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his tunic (for he had stripped for work), jumped into the water, and headed to shore.”
Peter jumped into the water and swam to the shore… wait a minute, why didn’t John also jump and outswim Peter? My thoughts were, he probably knew he would not stand a chance. Peter was probably a better swimmer and John hated to lose so much that he would not even get into the contest. Read the rest of this entry
