YOU HAVE DIED TO SIN (Part 1)

YOU HAVE DIED TO SIN (Part 1)

Your daily victory over sin depends on you knowing, believing, internalizing, and walking in the truth that your former sinful and corrupt self (the old man) had been crucified and buried with Christ, and you are now a new creation, a new self, a new man in Christ.

The death of your old self was not a gradual, progressive, or incomplete death. Rather, it was a ONCE FOR ALL, TOTAL, COMPLETE and PERFECT DEATH. This truth is the primary key to a victorious life in Christ! There is certainly a huge difference between a man who has been confirmed dead and a man who is about to die or who is dying…

THE MODEL WALL FOR TODAY’S CHURCH

THE MODEL WALL FOR TODAY’S CHURCH

While the Lord Jesus Christ is the only Good Shepherd and “the Gate” to the sheepfold, yet He has graciously called and given some believers the privilege and responsibility to be His under-shepherds. These God’s chosen and appointed leaders in the Church are those who constitute “the spiritual wall of the Church.” They are the spiritual walls for the flock of God!

Beyond nurturing, feeding and caring for the sheep of God, the shepherds or spiritual leaders in the Church are also charged with the responsibility of watching over, protecting and defending God’s flock against the encroachment and invasion of the world and the devil…

COMFORT THE FAINTHEARTED

COMFORT THE FAINTHEARTED

God is undoubtedly the Great Comforter. He is the Father of mercies and God of all comfort. God always seeks to comfort His children in all their tribulations and trials. The Word of God offers us a great comfort and hope when we are going through tough times and situations.

The Holy Spirit abides in and with the born-again believers to comfort and strengthen our hearts so that our hearts may not be overwhelmed with much grief or sorrow as a result of a sudden disappointment and failure, a shocking medical report, unexpected death of loved ones, a sudden disaster, tribulation or persecution we may face in this evil world…

TAKE YOUR REST IN THE LORD

TAKE YOUR REST IN THE LORD

There is surely an eternal rest for the believers in heaven; however, the Scripture assures that there is also a true rest, peace, and joy in the Lord available to the believers now in this present life.

Sadly, many believers today have been deceived by the devil into postponing their rest in the Lord to when they get to heaven. As a born-again believer you don’t need to defer your rest, peace, and joy in the Lord till after you leave this evil world. The Lord Jesus has made provision for you to have rest, peace and joy in this present troubled world…

GOD’S BEST FOR YOU

GOD’S BEST FOR YOU

The longest miracle recorded in the Bible is the daily rain of manna in the wilderness for forty years to sustain the children of Israel in the wilderness while they were journeying to the Promised Land.

Obviously, God didn’t intend for the children of Israel to live on the “miracle-food” (manna) all the days of their lives. It was only meant to be a temporary sustenance for them in their time of crisis. Similarly, in will gladly give us the miracles we need to deliver us or sustain us temporarily, but He does not intend for us or expect us to live on miracles for the rest of our lives…

BEWARE OF PRESUMPTUOUSNESS

BEWARE OF PRESUMPTUOUSNESS

David’s exuberance and excitement to bring the ark of God into the city of David was brought to an abrupt sad end when God struck Uzzah dead for putting his hands on the ark to prevent it from falling when the oxen carrying the ark stumbled.

As a result of the sad incidence, David became angry, sad, fearful and confused. Therefore, he sought God to know what went wrong and why God killed Uzzah. It is also wisdom for us today to find out why God struck Uzzah, who was one of the key players or drivers in the move to bring God into the city of David and who apparently acted out of a good intention to keep the ark of God safe in its place…
