Satisfy God Daily

AUTHOR: JIFAN

THEME: SATISFY GOD DAILY

KEY VERSE: 1 Samuel 16:7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

MESSAGE: Samuel before anointed David may have been trying to find someone who looked like Saul to be Israel’s next king because Saul was tall and handsome; he was an impressive looking man. The difference between one human being and another, as God sees us, has little or nothing to do with the size of our house, the kind of car we drive, how much money we have in our pockets or banks, the job we do, or any of these outward things. It is not these things that God is looking at; He is looking at something else – the HEART. The supreme issue with God is – What sort of a HEART have you got? Because human beings cannot see the HEART as God can – but only go to the HEART in a measure through outward things – human beings are very good at disguising their HEARTS. We can disguise what is in our HEARTS with our clothes, accent, jewellery or whatever. God goes straight to the centre, right to the closet of the soul which is the thing He calls here the ‘HEART’. This is why it is so important for you and I to go to CHURCH. It is only as we come to the presence of God that we learn the difference between the outward things of life and our HEART. Nobody else will tell you that. The world is only interested in the peripheral things, the externals of life: how much money, how good looking, what perfume, and what hairstyle. That’s all the world is interest in but God is interested in the REAL YOU. In a sense that is profoundly disturbing because you can’t hide yourself from God as you can from men.

He knows what we are without being confused by those disguises we are apt to put on. In another way this is profoundly comforting because it means that before the Almighty’s gaze, all men are level. Whether they be rich or poor God cares nothing. Whether they be clever or dull, He cares nothing. Whether they have had an exquisite education at UNZA, Nkrumah, CBU, Mulungushi, ZICAS, NIPA, Oxford or Cambridge – He cares nothing. What He wants to know is what you are like in your SOUL and in your HEART. You may be a sweeper of streets or a cleaner of rooms or a ploughboy, or a bus conductor, house cleaner, or not having a job, but if your HEART is RIGHT God is SATISFIED. If you have all the other things and your HEART is NOT RIGHT then God is NOT SATISFIED, and that was the trouble with Saul. Saul was very handsome, very impressive, very personable, very talented in many ways – brave, courageous, intelligent – but his HEART WAS WRONG. This is why we must keep on going to CHURCH and READING THE BIBLE DAY AND NIGHT AND OBEY IT because only the BIBLE tells us these things in plain language which we can understand. IF YOUR HEART IS WRONG OR NOT RIGHT BEFORE GOD, you can not satisfy Him by having higher job position, being the richest in your community or world, having higher education, having good complexion, having good spouce, having a good job, doing his mission work, talking good about Him all the times or trying to attract all outward things seem to be first and good to us. JUST SATISFY GOD BY FOCUSING FIRST ON BEAUTIFYING YOUR HEART WITH HIS WORD AND OBEDIENCE TO HIS WORD AND VOICE WHILST ENJOYING ALL THE ACHIEVEMENTS YOU MAY HAVE IN THIS WORLD. TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEART BECAUSE IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN ANYTHING YOU MAY HAVE IN THIS WORLD.

Ask God to forgive you if you find that the condition of your heart is not good before God. Pray for strength to continue satisfying Him. God judges by faith and character. Therefore, take care and keep your heart pure before God. Don’t spend hours and more money beautifying and maintaining your outward appearance. Satisfy God daily by developing your inner character. By God’s power take some steps to improve your heart’s attitude. Pray God to show you who you can share what you have discovered or learned about God through this devotion. LETS DESIRE TO SATISFY GOD DAILY

Kingdom on the move

AUTHOR: SH

THEME: Kingdom on the Move

KEY VERSES:Luke 9:1-17

When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal those who were ill. He told them: ‘Take nothing for the journey – no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt. Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave that town. If people do not welcome you, leave their town and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.’ So they set out and went from village to village, proclaiming the good news and healing people everywhere.

Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was going on. And he was perplexed because some were saying that John had been raised from the dead, others that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had come back to life. But Herod said, ‘I beheaded John. Who, then, is this I hear such things about?’ And he tried to see him.

When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida, but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing.

Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, ‘Send the crowd away so they can go to the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here.’

He replied, ‘You give them something to eat.’

They answered, ‘We have only five loaves of bread and two fish – unless we go and buy food for all this crowd.’ (About five thousand men were there.)

But he said to his disciples, ‘Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.’ The disciples did so, and everyone sat down. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.

MESSAGE: taking nothing with you!

Jesus, with all his power and authority invites 12 ordinary people to join him to share the good news, cast out demons and heal all diseases. 12 ordinary people doing the extraordinary for the kingdom. These were exciting times, people witnessing the messiah at work, fulfilment of prophesy, hearing the Good News from the anointed messenger, witnessing his amazing power and authority. I genuinely believe I would have been one of the many eager to see all this action, caught up in the swell of the curiosity, intrigue and amazement.

Jesus, as he prepares these ordinary men for furthering the kingdom, gives them authority to speak the good news, heal and cast out demons. What an incredible opportunity. This is massive. But Jesus also adds, Oh and by the way, as you depart – ‘take nothing with you for your journey’ (v3). Jesus is asking for their total dependence from God and the charity of those whom they meet. He needs them to trust him and have faith in him and his people.

How many of us when going on a trip, family holiday, visiting friends or on business, make sure we have everything we need and possibly more or too much. Cases, bags, files, iPads, laptops, kindles, phones stuffed with all we could possibly need. It seems such a strange request, that the disciples are asked to take nothing, literally nothing, as they begin such an important journey.

How many of us, preparing for events, conferences, work commitments ensure we have every detail covered pouring heaps of energy and much focus on resources, materials, what things should look like, and so on. Don’t misunderstand me, it’s important to be prepared, of course, however there is a bigger challenge here. Despite our preparedness (making sure everything is where we need it in case we do and have we remembered all the essential items) that actually God, wants us to totally rely on him. Even for the two-day conference in Manchester, the training event in work, or the presentation in a lecture!

As we go into our day, as believers, as followers of Jesus, as His disciples, what do we need with us to further Gods kingdom? Do we honestly rely totally on God, His spirit? Do we discern his prompting and lean on his wisdom as we encounter people, people of little Christian faith, no Christian faith, or those confused about Christian faith? At times we are so preoccupied with how things should look, how correct things should be, fearful of being too bold, fearful of saying the wrong thing. Sometimes we are so distracted by all the other things we think we need that we don’t fully focus on God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Sometimes there is so much clutter, we can’t hear what is being said to us, or focus on what is truly needed.

We have the Holy Spirit, to be our guide, teacher, friend. This is what we truly need. This is the essential item as we seek to build Gods Kingdom around us, work, college, school, university, among friends, among family. May He provide the opportunity, may He give us the wisdom, the courage and the discernment. May we lean on him, like those ordinary men, trust God completely, having faith in Him and Him in us.

The ordinary men travelled from town to town, with nothing and awaiting Gods provision through people to provide food, shelter, companionship, help and support. I wonder what is God saying to us through the words of Jesus ‘wherever you go stay in the same house until you leave town’ (v4). It makes me consider how giving we are to those who are sacrificing life to serve God in a full time capacity. If those ordinary men came to my town, would I open my house? Would I open my fridge? Would I open my purse? Would I think, someone else has it covered? Would my apathy, cynical attitude about their approach in ministry prevent my provision? As a believer and someone who wants to see God’s kingdom extended, I have a responsibility to seek God and know how I can resource and support those who take steps of faith to stand in places I can’t. Are we willing to give, donate, support and resource local Christian ministry, and or various projects that help bring Christian message across the world?

We are ordinary people, but through God and His Spirit we can do extraordinary things for Him, to further His Kingdom. Jesus has much to give us, even we come only with what we have. As we witness in Luke 9:10-17, Jesus feeds the masses with a tiny offering. He blessed, He resourced. Jesus showed great compassion on the crowd, even after a full and busy day. There was not much on the table ‘we only have five loaves of bread and two fish’ (v13). But with what was given he did immeasurably more. Amazing. Bring to God what you have, allow Him to provide, that others may be blessed, that others may truly encounter something of the amazing grace and power of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We have a great message to share.

As we walk into the day, moving in our workplace, being among peers, present among family, friends or various people we encounter may we truly live in dependence from God. May He provide opportunity, wisdom, discernment, grace and courage to share Him, his message, his love and grace. May we be aware of Gods prompting as we consider the many people locally and internationally being on the pathway of people’s lives where we can’t be, growing Gods kingdom. May we know that we come to God with all we have and he can do immeasurably more. He just needs us to trust Him, having faith in Him and Him in us.

 PRAY in line with what you have read and as the Spirit leads.

Share the gospel of peace

AUTHOR: SDB

THEME: SHARE THE GOSPEL OF PEACE!

VERSE: Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

FROM THE VERSE: The founders and promoters of peace, who not only keep the peace, but seek to bring people into harmony with each other. Those who make men friends with each other; those who work to stop people from being enemies. Those who not only seek peace and avoid quarrels, as far as in their power, but who also labor to settle differences among others, who advice all men to live at peace, and take away every occasion of hatred and strife. Those lovers of God and man who utterly detest and abhor all strife and debate, all variance and contention, and accordingly labor with all their might, either to prevent this fire of hell from being kindled, or when it is kindled from breaking out, or when it is broken out, from spreading farther. They endeavor to calm the stormy spirits of men, to quiet their turbulent passions, to soften the minds of contending parties, and, if possible, reconcile them to each other. They use all innocent arts,and employ all their strength, all the talents which God has given them, as well as to preserve peace where it is, and restore it where it is not. It is the joy of their heart to promote, to confirm, to increase, mutual good-will among men, but more especially among the children of God. God will consider them and he will have a relationship with them like a father with his children. Christians should bring peace between people and God and between those who are at odds with each other. Our great effort is to preserve life and to reconcile sinners to God. Strive to bring others to a knowledge of Jesus, that they may know the true peace. Peacemakers love, make and promote peace. We become children of God by obeying Him.

From your discovery and inline with the verse; Pray that the church may help nations/communities/friends/neighbors to live in peace. Pray that the peace-receivers may become transformed into peace-diffusers through our Lord Jesus Christ. Pray that the church may become peacemakers in the troubled world and channels for God’s mercy, purity, and peace.

Ministers of the. Gospel, people of influence, may do much to promote peace. Let’s restore peace among nations and use our influence of wisdom to reconcile the contending parties, adjust their differences, and restore them to a state of unity. The gospel of peace tends to reconcile men to God and to each other. Christ never intended his gospel to be propagated by fire and sword, or war, or penal laws, or intemperate zeal, as the mark of his disciples.

Let’s strive to prevent contention, strife, and war; and use our influence to reconcile opposing parties, and to prevent lawsuits and hostilities in families and neighborhoods.The perfect peacemaker is the Son of God who came into the world to slay all enmities, and to proclaim peace on earth.

Let’s love, desire, and delight in becoming peacemakers. Work for peace. Let’s resemble God, and endeavor to promote peace like him and we will be worthy to be accounted as his children. Let’s seek and obtain inward peace for ourselves, and it becomes our duty to promote and restore it where lacking; between God and man; man and man; in the church/community or world at large.

Be involved by becoming a PEACEMAKER! MAY IT BE BLESSED AS YOU SEEK PEACE BETWEEN GOD AND MAN OR BETWEEN MAN AND MAN!

Never Look Behind

AUTHOR: TKN

THEME: NEVER LOOK BEHIND

VERSE:

*Matthew 1:6*

And Jesse begot David the king; and David the king begat Solomon through her that had been the wife of Urias;

MESSAGE:

David sinned before God and he was punished for that sin. He killed Uriah and took his wife just to hide his previous sin because he had slept with his soldier’s wife and made her pregnant. This is one of David’s bad days and God sent him a messanger to tell him that God was very unhappy. David’s punishments were given and among them, the child being expected died even though David pleaded with God to serve the child. Why are we reminded of this story today? Do you remember *king Solomon*?, This Solomon is one of the successful people that lived on the face of the earth. This is him who was given *wisdom* and shone around the world. Well, this Solomon was born from this woman whom David sinned with (Uriah’s wife). A stolen wife gave birth to a great king and this son talked with God and asked wisdom and it was given. Dear reader, *God does not dwell in the past*. Ways that went wrong can be rebuilt and you can enjoy walking with Christ today. Stop looking behind and focus on your journey from today. because God is ready to make you His child daily. Repent fully and truly and move on because God deletes your previous sins. *If the devil makes you feel you can’t be forgiven, why not go to Christ and remind Him of His word*. The devil is a liar, God can give you a fresh start. My family finish the devotion with this song titled “Tekwesha” meaning “Don’t Try” by following this link https://zambianmusicblog.co/jifan-tekwesha-prod-mr-percussion/

PRAYER:

Please forgive me of my sins Jehovah and give me a peace that confirms your forgiveness and keep me moving forward. Remove all the David’s lies and set me free. In Jesus Christ’s name i pray, Amen.

Build your house on the Rock!

AUTHOR: GB

THEME: Build your house on the Rock!

KEY VERSES: Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn’t fall, for it was founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of mine, and doesn’t do them will be like a foolish man, who built his house on the sand. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.

Matthew 7:24–27.

MESSAGE: This won’t be long but I want you to take a moment to think of this past week or few days. Have you been building your house on a firm foundation? Have you been spending time with God? Reading the Bible? Growing in knowledge of Him? Ready to turn to God this past week?

Hearing our verse, we realise there are two things you tend to do in life when bad things happen: you don’t want anything to do with God or you cling to God with all you’ve got.

Here is a question for the day: have you been international with your time with God today? If you haven’t please take some time to do just that.

Also lets be international with our chats with people around us. Our friends, family, co-workers, neighbours may be going through a tough time and need the firm foundation we have to help them get through the storm that foundation is JESUS!

PRAYER: Lord, thank you that You are the best builder! Please teach me how to build a firm foundation in my life based off spending time with You and growing in knowledge of who You really are. Please keep me from giving up through the storms in my life that my faith in You can be sure and stead fast. Thank you for a new day Father!

Serve Others (2)

AUTHOR: JIFAN

THEME: Serve Others (2)

KEY VERSE: 1 Peter 4:10-11 Each one should use whatever gift he has received to SERVE OTHERS, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen

MESSAGE: Every Christian/Disciple is saved, equipped and empowered by God to serve. God is worshipped when we serve others, whether inside or outside the walls of the family/neighborhood/community/church. We are never more like Jesus than when we are SERVING OTHERS. Serving others brings personal fulfillment, encourages people we are serving, and brings glory to God which must be the goal/motive/intention to see God be glorified through our LOVE OBEDIENCE BASED SERVICES. Each one of us has special gifts/talents/abilities from God which must be used not to PLEASE SELF BUT GOD. All our gifts/abilities/talents/professions/capabilities should be used in serving GOD through serving OTHERS unconditionally.

I believe and biblically convinced that every person has abilities/gifts/talents etc. So pray to discover them and pray for strength and wisdom to use them in serving others for God. Pray for your church that members will discover their gifts/abilities/talents and use them to God’s glory. If you discover that you have been using your abilities/gifts/talents/possessions etc selfishly please repent to God and start a new life with others in mind. I can not say iam serving God in Germany while not serving Germans, iam serving God in Brazil while not serving Brazillians, iam serving God in Tanzania while not serving people of Tanzania or iam serving God in Thailand while not serving people of Thailand. IF YOU CLAIM TO SERVE GOD, GOD WILL LEAD YOU TO SERVE HIS PEOPLE! Serving God is serving His people. PEOPLE IS GOD’S MISSION AND MISSION IS ALL ABOUT PEOPLE. You hate people, you hate God’s mission. Love people Serve people

THINK ABOUT IT:

Just knowing your gifts/abilities/talents/possessions and not using them to serve others does not please God. DONT WAIT TO BE SERVED BY OTHERS, BE WILLING TO SERVE OTHERS AND SERVE THEM FIRST UNCONDITIONALLY

Your Testimony

AUTHOR: AI

THEME: YOUR TESTIMONY

MAIN VERSE: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony…” (Revelation 12:11).

MESSAGE: A testimony is a statement or affirmation of a fact. In a court of law, for instance, a testimony is the aggregate of proof offered in a case; it is the statement of a witness. Our opening scripture says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.” The question is, what is your testimony? Your testimony is your witness of Christ – your declaration of the activity of His Word and grace in your life.

What’s your testimony? For me, I testify that I’m walking in God’s grace and in His victory! I testify that I am winning in everything that I do! I testify that I’m excellent all the way! I testify that His grace is working in, for, and through me! I testify that the Lord is my Rock and my Strength! I testify that I’m more than a conqueror; greater is He that’s in me than He that is in the world!

Testify of your victories; testify of what He’s done in your life. Sometimes, the problem is that some people want to feel or see it first before they testify, but it’s not so. Testify first! Don’t wait to feel or see anything; God’s Word is real; that should be the basis of your testimony, that’s what overcomes the enemy – Satan.

When people are crying that, “Life is very hard these days,” you should declare, “I’m highly favoured and abundantly blessed of God!” That becomes your testimony, and with it, you overcome limitations. When you speak God’s Word and testify of Him, you bring His presence into the situation. Let His testimony be on your lips always; let the testimony of His Word and the efficacy of the Spirit put you over and above every situation.

Never be moved by the unpleasantness of your present circumstances; don’t observe negative symptoms of lack or ill-health; prophesy your victory. Proclaim the Word. Worship God in the midst of any seemingly hopeless situation you may find yourself in. Testify that you have overcome and thank God for your deliverance and victory.

Maintain God’s testimony of you; His testimony is that you are a new creation in Christ Jesus. His testimony is that you are more than a conqueror – superior to Satan and placed over and above all circumstances and situations. Affirm the same things in consent with Him today. Every day, say what God has said about you. Remember, “…He hath said…so that we may boldly say…” (Hebrews 13:5-6). The glorious things He has spoken about you in His Word (Psalm 87:3) are your testimonies. You are who and what God says you are. So, study the Word to ascertain for yourself what God has said concerning you, and proclaim those things boldly.

This Pain Is Better

AUTHOR: TKN

THEME: THIS PAIN IS BETTER

KEY VERSE:

LUKE 18: 35, 38-39

  1. As He drew near Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 38. And he cried ” Jesus! Son of David, have mercy on me! 39. Those who were in front rebuked him to be silent but he cried the more.

MESSAGE:

This is a story of someone who has been blind for a long time. When he heard Christ passed by, he cried out for help. Picture this. Many people tried to silence him but he cried the more. Being blind he could fall down and could not be sure of which direction Christ was. This was painful. But something kept him going. He knew that he had to endure this pain until he gets his sight! it was better to endure this pain for a moment than the pain he had throughout his blindness. So he cried out more! Have you ever thought of the pain that will be in hell forever? Many of us have failled to accept Christ for the fear of the suffering we are to go through for sake of Christ. Do you know that THIS PAIN IS BETTER THAN HELL.? Dont allow the devil to deceive you. It is better to be in pains for a while and be happy eternally. This blind man new that if he had not passed through this pain, he would have been in pains all his life. We should never be moved by the little pain we pass through we should bear it because THIS PAIN IS BETTER THAN HELL.

PRAYER:

Dear God,

Thank you for teaching me that what i fear is small compared to what lies ahead for those who are disobidient. Christ be my guide and see me through. In Jesus Christ’s name i pray. Amen

Courageous For The Gospel

AUTHOR : C A

THEME : COURAGEOUS FOR THE GOSPEL

MAIN VERSE: Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Ephesians 6:14-15).

MESSAGE: To be an effective witness for Christ, you must be courageous, with the boldness of the Spirit, in increasing measure. It brings to mind the charge the Lord gave to Joshua as He prepared to lead the children of Israel to their promised land. He said to Him, ” Only be thou strong and very courageous. ..” ( Joshua 1 :7). Courage is the ability to face danger and opposition fearlessly. It’s also the will and ability to stand for what’s right in spite of opposition. So being courageous for the Gospel means being willing and ready to do what’s right and necessary for the propagation of the Gospel, in spite of opposition.

What’s needed in the ministry of the Gospel today are men and women of courage; courage to affirm faith in Christ, no matter the adversity. The Lord Jesus, the apostles, and the early Church stood their grounds for the Gospel in spite of oppositions. They didn’t chicken out. They withstood kings and despots of their time, nothing could intimidate them. This courage and passion to minister life, to strengthen others, and bring them into God’s light should spur you on for the Gospel.

We’ve been ordained of God to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ; we’re to tell the untold about Jesus and reach the unreached. It’s a task for everyone who is in Christ; you have a ministry to your world. The Lord knows you’d require courage to achieve this, hence He gave you the Holy Spirit, to strengthen and empower you for the task.

You have all it takes; therefore, have that inner fortitude to make the Gospel known at any cost. Be willing to do anything that’s right and necessary for the propagation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; it’s the greatest cause to live for.

SCRIPTURE READING

Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant – not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. ( 2 Corinthians 3: 5-6 )

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the privilege given to me to preach the unsearchable riches of Christ, and minister life to those in my world, through the Gospel. Thank you for empowering me for this glorious task, which I’m glad to carry out today, by the power of your Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

The Mark Of A True Disciple Of Jesus (2)

AUTHOR: JIFAN

THEME: THE MARK OF A TRUE DISCIPLE OF JESUS (2)

KEY VERSE: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35

MESSAGE: What makes the disciples of Jesus different from others and what makes Christianity distinct from any other religion? It is grace – treating others, not as they deserve, but as God wishes them to be treated – with loving-kindness, forbearance, and mercy. God is good to the unjust as well as the just. His love embraces saint and sinner alike. God seeks our highest good and teaches us to seek the greatest good of others, even those who hate and abuse us. Our love for others, even those who are ungrateful and selfish towards us, must be marked by the same kindness and mercy which God has shown to us. It is easier to show kindness and mercy when we can expect to benefit from doing so. How much harder when we can expect nothing in return. Our prayer for those who do us ill both breaks the power of revenge and releases the power of love to do good in the face of evil.

How can we possibly love those who cause us harm or ill-will? With God all things are possible. He gives power and grace to those who believe and accept the gift of the Holy Spirit. His love conquers all, even our hurts, fears, prejudices and griefs. Only the cross of Jesus Christ can free us from the tyranny of malice, hatred, revenge, and resentment and gives us the courage to return evil with good. Such love and grace has power to heal and to save from destruction. Do you know the power of Christ’s redeeming love and mercy?

Was Jesus exaggerating when he said we must be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect? The original meaning of “perfect” in Aramaic is “completeness” or “wholeness – not lacking in what is essential.” God gives us every good gift in Jesus Christ so that we may not lack anything we need to do his will and to live as his sons and daughters (2 Peter 1:3). He knows our weakness and sinfulness better than we do. And he assures us of his LOVE, MERCY, and GRACE to follow in his ways. Do you want to grow in your love for God and for your neighbor? Ask the Holy Spirit to change and transform you in the image of the Father that you may walk in the JOY and FREEDOM of the Gospel.

LET LOVING GOD AND EVERYONE EVERYWHERE UNCONDITIONALLY BE YOUR LIFE’S NUMBER ONE JOB. YOU CAN! I CAN AND WE CAN THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. LOVE IS THE MARK OF A TRUE FOLLOWER OF JESUS AND THIS LOVE, LOVES AND FORGIVES EVERYONE NEAR AND FAR AND ALL TO GOD’S GLORY. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE AND LOVE.

♡THINK ABOUT IT♡

[1 Corinthians 13:1-13]
