Meekness & Humility Leads to Fruitfulness

Philippians 2:3 (KJV) Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Authenticity is the key to genuineness. Impressiveness in any form of it leads to compromise. We live in a world where people are not comfortable in who they are and with what they have. We see its impact on every aspect of life. Every outlet of information seems to push the idea that you are to have a…

To Love God is to “Serve Others”

Matthew 23:11 (KJV) But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. One of the things Christ had to confront His disciples was their mentality and mindset about greatness. They were still holding on to the mentality of their environment as it defined what constitutes greatness. Their mindset was wrapped up in thinking that a great person was or is that person who others served. One who had great material wealth. One who commanded such influences and affluence.…

Thanksgiving: The Believer’s Way of Life

Psalm 100:4 (KJV) Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. The approach determines response. It is a spiritual and natural law that the way and manner in which you approach someone determines the response you will receive. God is both our Father and our God; we, therefore, must understand the necessity of approaching Him as such. Reverence, Praise, and Worship are biblical and reveal manners by which we…

God Commands us to LOVE one another

Romans 13:10 (KJV) Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. We seek it and are drawn to it as humans. It is the hallmark of genuine relationships. Those who live by its standards make a lot of difference in the world. It is the very nature of God. We are called and commanded to live by it. It is spoken of as the only hallmark of being a follower of Jesus Christ.…

“Come Boldly To God’s Throne and……….”

Hebrews 4:16 (KJV) Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. We are being expected by the King Himself. We are called and invited by the King Himself. Access is the key to Influence. And we have access to the very Throne Room of God Himself. Now, we must understand why this invitation is given, we are co-partners with God in the great harvest…

Love As Christ Loves!

John 13:34 (KJV) A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. As we continue to count down to Easter, it is imperative we reflect on the very events that took place before the crucifixion of Christ – especially His Last words and actions. The above scripture underscores the importance of loving one another and Christ Himself demonstrated how true love is seen and shown. 1. In…

Obedience & Humility

Philippians 2:8 (KJV) And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. This week is a remembrance of the very core of our Faith. Jesus died for us as an atoning sacrifice but as we reflect on this wonderful Truth, we must also reflect on the lessons of this season: 1. There is nothing that can stop you when your heart is made up to serve God. 2.…

Every Seed Reaps a Harvest

Psalm 126:5 (KJV) They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. Often when we hear of sowing our minds run to a special seed or offering called for by a preacher. The Biblical concept of sowing is all encompassing. In this context, sowing has to do with deep spiritual investments in one’s healing, deliverance, and breakthroughs. We are being called to make such personal and spiritual sacrifices that will open the doors of such blessings in our lives. In Gods Economy…

Christ: Our Sacrifice!

Romans 8:32 (KJV) He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? The sacrifice ensured that all things are yours. Start believing it and start walking in it. You are a blessed person. Remember,  that nothing is greater than the sacrifice of Jesus and it demonstrates your worth before God. The key here is Faith. Believe in who you are and be open to…

Love can be seen & touched

1 John 3:16-18  Hereby perceive we the love of God , because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. [17] But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? [18] My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. Greetings.…
