January 9th 2018 – You Are A Miracle, Share Your Testimony

“When I first came to you, dear brothers and sisters, I didn’t use lofty words and impressive wisdom to tell you God’s secret plan. For I decided that while I was with you I would forget everything except Jesus Christ, the one who was crucified. I came to you in weakness—timid and trembling. And my message and my preaching were very plain. Rather than using clever and persuasive speeches, I relied only on the power of the Holy Spirit. I did this so you would trust not in human wisdom but in the power of God. (1 Corinthians 2:1-5)

Above are the humble words of the Apostle Paul in a letter to the Corinthians. He states that he relied only on the Holy Spirit to reach the people. No lofty words and impressive wisdom.

Do you think that more people would have accepted Jesus, if during Pauls message he could have dazzled the croud with a modern worship experience? Lasers and Lights, beautiful worship songs. What if Paul had through the Holy Spirit preformed a miracles?

Have you ever wondered that if you could do a miracle for your non-Christian friends, they would become believers? Maybe you’ve thought to youself, “If I could just do a miracle, I know they would believe on the spot.”

I don’t think so. I am sure it would be amazing. It probably would move them deeply. But a million signs and wonders would not make the world turn to Christ. When a person believes in Jesus, it is an act of the heart; an act of the will that has to take place.

A miracle is not going to convince someone. Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, and afterward, they plotted to kill Jesus and Lazarus. (John 12) says that when all the people heard of Jesus’ arrival, they flocked to see Him and also Lazarus, the man whom Jesus raised from the dead. And then the leading priests decided to kill Lazarus too. Poor Lazarus. Wasn’t bad enough that he had to die once, and then the religious leaders wanted to kill him again. Why? Because Lazarus was a living, breathing miracle. His presence alone was a testimony to the power of God.

And guess what? You are a living, breathing miracle.  If you can talk about how God has changed your life and how He has transformed you. You are a powerful representative of Jesus Christ. So be one.

Our message to a lost world is that we are all sinners. We are separated from God. But God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins and to pay the price for us on the cross and to rise again from the dead. That is the gospel. Just proclaim it, and watch what God will do!

“The revelation of God’s Truth can be that hope which sets you free.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for Your generous love for me. I am so grateful that I can run to You in times of need and You will hear my cry. Father, I ask for Your strength and wisdom today. I am so thankful for the many promises found in Your Word. Help me take each one to heart and to allow Your Truths to change me. Protect me from the fears and doubts that can cloud my thinking, and give me boldness to stand on Your Word and to share it with others. No matter where I find myself I ask that You would guide my steps and use me for Your purposes. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

God has made it possible for you to know Him and experience an amazing change in your own life. Click here  to discover how you can find peace with God.

November 5th 2017 – A Hunger for?

“In the meantime His disciples urged Him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” But He said to them, “I have food to eat of which you do not know.” Therefore the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought Him anything to eat?” Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. (John 4:31-34)

“A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” (John 4:7-10)

I have a question for you. What you you hunger for in life? In the scriptures above, The disciples had a meal, and one they had to ponder, and that’s fine. It’s important to take care of those basics of life, but Jesus is pointing them and us to something greater, a harvest of souls of men, women, and children that need to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus spent His lunchtime not physically eating, but rather conversing with the Samaritan woman at the well leading her to the saving grace of God. The Samaritan woman then made her way into the city speaking to the men of Samaria sharing her testimony about Christ. Then they began making their way toward Jesus and the disciples.

We have to remember that the Jewish people considered the Samaritans a people that they did not care for. Jesus was willing to minister to these people who were outcasts. He saw them as part of the harvest. God is desiring for us also to participate with Him in this harvest, but the harvest is found in the problem people and problematic circumstances that surround our day to day life. If a particular group of people come to mind when you think ‘problem people’ it could be that the Lord is laying these people in front of you to be pursuing, praying for, and proclaiming the goodness of the gospel to. Who could the Lord be trying to point out to you? Ask the Spirit of God to pour into your heart the love of God for those people today. Ask for boldness to speak, serve, and see His love and truth manifested in the problems and problem people in your life today. Let’s have a hunger for the harvest!

“God often uses the ‘Problem People’ in our lives in His desire to bring a Harvest in us and to us. We need to see God’s purpose in the problem.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, please help me to see people as You see them. Help me to have a heart for the harvest like You have. Please forgive me for my lack of hunger for the harvest and please give me a continual appetite for Your will in all areas of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

September 5th 2017 – Holy Boldness

“He will not crush those who are weak, or quench the smallest hope, until he brings full justice with his final victory. And his name will be the hope of all the world.” (Matthew 12:20-21)

God does not want His children to feel beat up about sharing their faith in Him. He wants to encourage us to share our faith.

Take a look at the apostle Peter’s life, we see certain things that are important for us to recognize. Peter had not only failed miserably by not sharing his faith, but also by denying his faith. Then, in the book of Acts we see a changed Peter. He boldly declares to the Jewish leaders “let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole.” (Acts 4:10)

Despite Peter’s failure, God still worked through him. Perhaps you have had some failures in sharing your faith. Maybe you have even denied Jesus in your words or your actions. However small or frail your desire to tell others about Jesus may be, God will take that desire and fan the flames of it until it is a roaring inferno. God wants us to share our faith and He works with us right where we are. All He asks for is a willing heart and mouth to speak on His behalf.

“God can give us a Holy Boldness to share our faith.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You for this gift of salvation. Help me to be bold in sharing it with others. I haven’t been so bold in the past and have closed my mouth when I should have spoken. Please forgive me for that and renew my desire to share this message of forgiveness of sins to the world. I pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

February 1st 2017 – The Mission of Jesus

“And they said, “Cornelius the centurion, a just man, one who fears God and has a good reputation among all the nation of the Jews, was divinely instructed by a holy angel to summon you to his house, and to hear words from you.” Then he invited them in and lodged them. On the next day Peter went away with them, and some brethren from Joppa accompanied him.” (Acts 10:22-23)

 

In Acts chapter 10, we see the doors opening wide for all of humanity to hear the Gospel. Until this time, only a select few knew of the good news about Jesus. That was about to change, drastically. The good news to be presented and accepted by this group of gentiles would impact all of mankind. The world would never be the same.

Now that we have heard the good news, we have the privilege to help others hear it. It is my desire to reach people with the good news through any means possible, short of sin. In Genesis chapter 4, Cain posed the question, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” The answer is a resounding ‘yes’. We are responsible for reaching this generation with the good news that God loves them and died for their sins.

 Jesus’ mission is to reach the world, we as Christians should follow in faith to share our testimony”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank You that because I asked You to forgive me, You have indeed forgiven me. There are still many people who have not accepted You as Lord and Savior. Lord, please give me a burden to reach people. Lord, I will join together with my brothers and sisters to reach the out and share what You did for me. Help me to care about whether they come to You or not. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
