DIVINE FOUNTAIN IN EARTHEN VESSELS

DIVINE FOUNTAIN IN EARTHEN VESSELS

The Lord Jesus Christ does not only invite us to drink freely and abundantly of the fountain of living water, He also invites us to become a channel through which the living water can flow to others. While we are only seeking for just enough living water to satisfy our thirsty souls, Christ has something infinitely greater to offer us. What could that be? To be His earthen vessels or channels carrying and dispensing the living water to thirsty souls!

If you have truly come to Christ in humility and faith, acknowledging and confessing Him as your personal Saviour and Lord, you are not only perfectly and eternally satisfied with the living water; you have also become a vessel carrying the fountain of living water…

HINDRANCES TO TRUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH (Part 2)

HINDRANCES TO TRUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH (Part 2)

Unhealthy spiritual comparison is one of the major causes of spiritual retardation among the believers today. It is unwise to compare, judge or measure your spiritual growth by the life and character of anyone else except that of Christ (2 Cor. 10:12).

While there is nothing wrong to have a spiritual mentor, leader, or a discipler whose love for God, godly lifestyle, faith, and labours and sacrifices for God’s kingdom you can emulate, you must however be careful not to set any man regardless of his spiritual level or maturity as your perfect or ultimate standard and model of spirituality or maturity…

HINDRANCES TO TRUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH (Part 1)

Every normal parent takes special delight in the healthy growth and development of his child. Parents derive a sort of pleasure, joy, or fulfillment in watching their children grow up in every aspect of life into responsible adults who can be trusted with responsibility and authority.

Parents take special pride or delight in speaking about their children’s healthy growth and development, successes and achievements in life. Likewise, God takes delight in His children healthy growth and development. God loves to see every believer grow up in all things into Christ…

TRUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH

TRUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Growing into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ or becoming fully conformed to the image of Christ has nothing to do with your recreated spirit, but it has everything to do with your soul (your mind, will and emotions) and your body.

While your spirit is already quickened and raised up together with Christ and is presently seated in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, your soul and your body are still full citizens of this earth. While the fullness of Christ is dwelling presently in your born-again spirit, your soul still have the negative and ungodly imprints and stuffs of your old man that was crucified with Christ, and your body still has all the human weaknesses and frailties…

WHAT SPIRITUAL GROWTH IS NOT

WHAT SPIRITUAL GROWTH IS NOT

One of the primary characteristics of every living thing is growth. Synonyms for growth are: “development, increase, growing, maturation.” When any living thing is not growing or developing as it should, something is definitely wrong somewhere. Similarly, when a believer is not growing spiritually, there is a problem somewhere.

It is God’s plan and expectation that all His children will grow up in every way into the full stature of Christ. This is one of the primary God-ordained purposes or responsibilities of church leaders…

DON’T FALL AWAY FROM GRACE

DON’T FALL AWAY FROM GRACE

Like the foolish Galatians, who began their walk with God by faith and in the Spirit but later began to seek perfection by the works of the law, many believers today are also falling away from grace by seeking to please and impress God or by striving to earn and deserve God’s love, acceptance, favour, or blessing by their performance, self-righteousness, good works or holy acts.

When you seek to add your performance, self-righteousness, good works or holy acts to the finished work of Jesus Christ as a basis of having a loving and intimate relationship with God or as a means of obtaining and enjoying God’s approval, favour, goodness or blessing; you have fallen away from grace…
