THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL

The power of the gospel 

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first and also to the Greek." Romans 1:16. The gospel means "Good News." Paul preached very boldly about the plan of salvation because God gave him a special calling. This verse is one of the most powerful verses in the Bible and is quoted often. Here the Word of God is very clear that people are to believe on the name of Jesus Christ. Our Lord made this so plain and clear on wh

JESUS CHRIST OUR DELIVER

Before Jesus Christ ever physically walked on this earth the Bible has some things to say about the Son of God on how He delivers us in our daily routine of life. "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound." Isaiah 61:1. Can we break this verse down? If Jesus tells us a biblical truth who would He most prefer to talk to? This passage is saying ... "To preach good tidings unto the meek." They are open in their heart to learn. When I talk to a meek person there are no barriers in their spirit that have to be plowed through to get to the Person of Jesus Christ. This should give us a clue as to what spirit we are to have when our Lord the great teacher of all time is trying to impart a message to us. Jesus Christ has always desired to bind up the brokenhearted. The B…

Sunday’s Inspiration God's Greatness God is beauty and splendour,
Awesome and magnificent
He's full of awesome wonder
And is wholly omnipotent But despite God's greatness,
He always has time for us,
Nothing is too great or small
That He won't want to touch So praise Him for His greatness
And everything He is,
But also for the little things
That we so often miss.

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 2 Corinthians 4:15 King James Version (KJV)
15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. Isaiah 41:10 King James Version (KJV)

HOW TO WAIT ON GOD

How to wait on God " Our soul waiteth for the Lord: He is our help and our shield. " Psalm 33:20. Our reward for waiting on the Lord is help and  assistance for our life with protection.  Do we need help from God in our life? I would hope so or we  are living our lives on our own which is prohibited in the Word  of God. If we did that as a lifestyle then Jesus Christ is not in  our path and we could not call ourselves true Christians. Jesus Christ loves giving us help and assistance as long as we  are waiting on Him. He also desires to be our shield. Jesus  Christ wants to be our protection. This comforts me because  He knows exactly how to do it and when but it is always through  our faith in Him. Waiting on the Lord takes courage but with this characteristic  comes strength. You may say, " Well I have a hard time with  courage." Join the club because we can only acquire true  character through Jesus Christ. The end result of a brave  spirit is peace. The order t…

LOVE

God not only loved us beyond comprehension by sending His Son to die for  our sins but He loves us at present and will continue to love us for all eternity. We could never go up to anyone else and say," On a scale of one to ten God loves me a nine." The other person could never respond back to us  and say, "Well in my case God loves me an eight. There are different mercy levels God has for us depending on how  bad we are hurting mentally, emotionally or physically as opposed  to another person that is just coasting through life without any problems  but the level of love God has for us can never be measured. This love is not limited to His children but also to unbelievers.  This is not even including love He has for all of His created beings. I hear this every once in a while but some people believe God does not  love a reprobate sinner that goes straight to hell for all eternity. This is not true. Nothing can change the fact that God will always love  even the very wo…

Beneath The Shadow Of Thy Wings15 hrs ·  Tuesday’s Inspiration What Is It We're Looking For So often we try to fill the void
With what the world provides,
In hope that we will find contentment
For our dreary, empty lives
But listen my friend it's only temporary
And is like chasing the wind,
The things of the world simply won't fulfil
The unhappiness we have within We mustn't look for our fulfilment
In pleasures that won't satisfy,
For we can never fulfil what's lacking
Unless Christ comes inside
For God has created us to need Him
And fills us with His love,
So we won't need more worldly things,
Nor crave for ungodly stuff We need to stop and ask ourselves,
What is it we're looking for?
And can we truly be fulfilled
If we don't allow the Lord
To come inside and bring the change
That's needed in our lives?
So we will find that true happiness
Is only found in Christ.

HOW TO ABIDE IN CHRIST

How to Abide in Christ How to abide in Jesus Christ
How do we know if we are abiding in Jesus Christ? In John 15 the whole chapter is devoted to this subject. As Christians we want to make sure we are abiding in Jesus Christ because our relationship with Him determines if we are walking with our Lord the right way. John 15:1 says “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.” Here we see that Jesus represents the vine. A vine that is on a tree is big and strong. The branches that grow out of the vine are not strong. We are the branches and Jesus is the vine. We need to embrace Jesus Christ because He is strong and we are not. John 15:2 says “Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring more fruit.” Every Christian who is not bearing fruit for Jesus just gets pushed aside and thrown out because it has no eternal value. When we bear fruit for Jesus our Lord purgeth it so we can bring forth more frui…
