Good News

John 1:41-42 Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means “Christ”). Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus…” (emphasis added).

Yesterday, I shared with you how after I got saved, I could not keep Jesus to myself. Andrew went looking for his brother, Simon, and told him, so did I. Guess what? Today, my brother is a Pastor and he is pastoring a great church. You never know what God is going to do with that your relative. Read the rest of this entry

True Focus

John 1:26-27 “John answered them, “I baptize with water. Among you stands one whom you do not know, the one who is coming after me; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandal.” (NRSV, emphasis added)

John in reference to Jesus said, “I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandal.” What did he mean? At that time, what is called the “Rabbinic Movement” was very strong. The Rabbis are the teachers and each Rabbi will have students. Read the rest of this entry

The Witness

John 1:6-7 “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.” (NRSV, emphasis added)

The story is told about a young man who told his Pastor that he had consecrated his life to Jesus. The Pastor looked at him intently and said, “We are going for evangelism tomorrow and we will need your car tomorrow morning.” Read the rest of this entry

Martyrion

Acts 5:32-33 “We are witnesses of these things and so is the Holy Spirit, who is given by God to those who obey him.’ When they heard this, the high council was furious and decided to kill them.”

John 1:6-9 (NRSV) “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.  He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.  The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.” Read the rest of this entry

Overflow

Rom. 9:15 “For God said to Moses, “I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.”

Please read Matt.20:30-33; These blind beggars did not have a functional life. Jesus probably played their entire life right there and then. They had no money, no work, Read the rest of this entry

Gains

Psa.105:“Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done.”

 

The value of a car three years after purchase, is not the same as when it was purchased. The reason is because the car has depreciated in value.

Quality Check

Matt.5:13 “You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavour… 14 “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden… 16 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”

 

The quality of your work can speak for you in places and ways that you cannot even speak for yourself. God wants us to work so that we can be examples to others. Remember Daniel? He was not going around with a mega phone preaching Jehovah. Read the rest of this entry

Light

1 Thess. 4:11 (GN) “Make it your aim to live a quiet life, to mind your own business, and earn your own living… In this way, you will win the respect of those who are not believers…”

 

Over the past few days, God has been answering the question, “Why Work?” In addition to work being God’s idea, work being a tool God uses to supply our needs, and work being a platform that God uses to build character in us, today God is saying to us work because work allows you to be generous.

Eye Witness II

John 20:25 “They told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side.”

 

One of the striking things about God is that He is committed to record the whole truth about everyone in His Word. Like Peter, Thomas was not going to stick his neck out for Jesus without a hundred percent proof. Read the rest of this entry

Eye Witness I

Rev.12:11 (AMPC) “And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].”

 

Yesterday, we established that not many people would argue with the fact that Jesus actually walked on earth. We also answered the question about His resurrection based on scriptural witnesses. Read the rest of this entry
