THE PREACHER’S UTMOST PRAYER. 1 Corinthians 9:16-27


IMG_163697742828679

1 Corinthians 9:16-27 (KJV)

16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

17 For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.

18 What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.

19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more.

20 And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law;

21 To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.

22 To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

23 And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

O’ Lord see me through, Jesus see me through, there is a race that I must run, there are victories to be won! Oh God give me power every hour to be true!!! Lord Jesus see me through!!

As ordained servants of God, there is just one goal. The crown on the head and the voice that says “ Well Done and Welcome Home.”

But how do we achieve this goal? Every true believer is a minister of God and a preacher of the gospel. May I remind you, some people were specifically called, some called themselves and some was just simple availability.

Matthew 19:12.

For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

But I tell you, God Equips the Called, He never calls the Equipped! Availability is a key ingredient in the call of God.

“If God Calls you, He will Provide for the Vision.”

Apostle Paul is our example in this study, and our study is divided into three subheadings.

The Pattern of Self-Denial, 1 Corinthians 9:16-19.
As Christians, preaching the gospel of Christ and everything Christ stands for is unavoidable. We are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ.

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

To some, we might look like fools and sound stupid, but whence we know our target and know that our goal is to win them to Christ, we ought to remain steadfast not boasting about it, nor feeling “ I have arrived.” It is a must as true Christians to preach the gospel.

1 Corinthians 1:18

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God.

 Jesus Christ said; if anyone wants to be His servant, he must first denial everything including his own self, pick up his cross and follow Jesus. Luke 14:25-33, Luke 9:23.

Self-denial is a must to become a true child of God. We have to deny ourselves a lot of things, from the way speak, to the way we act. We are now a new creature; our old lifestyles have been nailed to the cross.

There’s a reward for selfless service to God and mankind. We should never abuse the gift of God upon our lives. “ Those who preach the gospel must live the gospel”

 

Serving all men, 1 Corinthians 19-23.
As workers in the vineyard, we ought to remember,

“Your Goal is very much more Important than the Role you Play.”

If we have this at the back of our mind, certainly we will preach Christ effortlessly and selflessly. Our utmost desire for should be the desire of total flexibility. I mean we have to be flexible to change in accordance to God’s words and will. Apostle Paul became four different persons on four different occasions.

And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might, by all means, save some.

But notice, he was still under God’s commandments and rules. He did not break any of them to please men.

He talks about becoming a Jew so that he could win the Jews; those under the law so he could win them; those without the law; and to the weak he became weak. At the end of the day, he became all things to men, in pursuit of saving them. As fellow laborers in the vineyard, we need to study our situation before we can lead the situation.

We need to add value to our work as ministers before God is going to give us direction.

Striving for a Crown, 1 Corinthians 26-27.
This is it!

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

There is a race to run, a crown to be worn. If we truly understand this, our walk with God will have a huge impact on our service towards the propagation of the gospel of Christ. We have to run with Focus, Train & Compete with Passion, and Fight with Purpose and Master our Flesh.

 Mr. Flesh!

jmJosephAndChrist 001

Mr. flesh is one entity that refuses to let go without a fight. Romans 7:15-25, Apostle Paul was talking about the power of the flesh confronting him and trying to prevent him from serving God.

Romans 7:15

What I don’t understand about myself is that I decide one way, but then I act another, doing things I absolutely despise.

Galatians 5:16 give us the Antidote to kill the flesh, we have to walk only in the spirit and do the things that are spiritually minded.

“Watch & Pray!” notice the bible says, Watch first. We need to observe every step we are taking and everything we are doing. Focus on the high calling of God in Christ Jesus lay aside every weight of sin and never pamper our weaknesses. Deal with our internal rubbish, confront our foundation because it will spring up and destroy our calling. We need to set our affections on the things that are above, mortify our body, (fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness). We need to put off the old man, which is lying, anger, lust, greed, pride, and filthy communication. Only then can we safeguard ourselves. It is compulsory we put on the new man and practice charity (love), which is the golden rule in becoming perfect in our walk with Christ. This guarantees our finishing well. Col 3:1-17. 

Col 4:2 &17

Finally, continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving. Please take heed to the ministry, which you have receive from God, that you may fulfill it.

3090240_1425163596.2939_updates

Have great Passion for the Work, which exceeds our Position, Gains and personal Preferences. Remain fixed on our Mission and Flexible in our Methods in Achieving it.

Remember we have to keep under our body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means when we have preached to others, we ourselves should be a castaway.

Our goal and target are hearing those sayings from God when we have gone the last mile of the way, and we are resting at the close of the day. We only want to hear God say.

“ Well Done & Welcome Home My Good & Faithful Servant!”

Remembers the true Picture, less you lose sight of the Vision. Priority is key, Discernment is Priceless.

The Valley Of Restoration. Ezekiel 37:1-14


Ezek37A

Can these bones live? Can we actually come back alive from our past and dead self? Can we be totally free from the power of sin? Can the resurrecting power in the Blood of Jesus resurrect us from the grip and power of the grave? Can our dead glory come back alive? Can be breakthrough unto God’s perfect and divine plans for our lives? Can every dry bone in our lives rise again? Only God Knows!

The book of Ezekiel from chapter 36:24-38 was talking about the restoration of the nation Israel. In chapter 37, God gives a vision and symbol of the methods of its accomplishments. Verse 11 of Ezekiel 37 gives us the clue.

  • The bones, which are the whole house of Israel, who shall be living and the graves, are the nations where they dwell.

The order of the procedure is

  • Bringing the people out. (Vs 12)
  • Bringing them in. (vs 12)
  • Their conversion. (Vs 13)
  • The filling with the spirit. (Vs 14)

Resurrection is very important in our new walk with Christ. It means we are dead to sin; we’ve been crucified with Christ. It means we are no more under the law of sin but of Grace. The law is no more our schoolmaster, our flesh is dead to sin and our inner man has risen with Christ. This entails we are a New Creature.

Note: Romans 6:1-2a “ we cannot continue to live in sin, thinking grace may abound. We should not use the liberty we have as an occasion to glorify and satisfy the flesh.

The Valley of Resurrection is a place where:

Screen-Shot-2014-01-06-at-4.55.14-PM

  • The resurrection of the soul occurs from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, to a holy, heavenly, spiritual and divine life by the power of divine grace going down with the word of Christ. John 5:24-25.

God took prophet Ezekiel to a valley full of dead dry bones and asked him, can these Bones Live? The prophet answered only for answering sake, so it wouldn’t be as if he lacked faith! “Oh Lord Thou Knowest”

“In life there comes a time when the situations and difficulties we are facing challenges our faith and hope in God. Then we are asked simple questions, but the answer becomes very difficult. Not because we don’t believe in God or we have lost faith. It’s simply because the situation seems impossible. But thank God we have a God that specializes in making the impossible to become possible.”

 Let’s observe the particulars of this Vision.

  • The Hand of the Lord was upon the Prophet and He carried him to a valley full of dry bones, probably the one of Ezekiel 3:22.

When God asked him if the bones could live vs 3? Is it likely? Can thou devise how it should be done? NO said the prophet, “ I know not how it should be done, but thou knowest Lord.” He didn’t say they couldn’t live, lest it would sound a bit insulting and limiting the power of the Almighty.

Faith and hope are two key ingredients in living a life pleasing to God. We have to trust God no matter how hard and difficult the situation might seem.

  • The spoken command word to bring these dry bones back to life. Vs 4-6.

God asked him to prophesy, pray, speak, and issue a command in the name of the Lord. This means using the power of God to speak life.

“ Life and death are in the power of the tongue.”

God is known to speak things to be. Ezekiel prophesying to dry disperses and scattered bones, commanding them to live must have been done only by prophecy. He had to issue a command (preach), he did so and the dead bones lived by a power that went along with the word of God, which he preached.

He must pray, he did so and the dead bones were made to live in answer to the prayer; for a spirit of life entered into them.

Back to us

There are many dead situations in our lives, so many valleys of dry bones. One thing certain and sure, the word of God can bring them back to life.

Isaiah 55:11

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

 Jeremiah 23:29

Is not my word like as a fire? Saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Speak the word of God to every area that needs resurrection in your life. God words are powerful; they have the power to bring the invisible things to visible. His words make the impossible to become possible.

Speak the power of resurrection to every dead area in your life, from sin to lust, to immoralities. It doesn’t matter how bad the situation might seem, the power of resurrection can bring you back on track. God can restore you, don’t give up on yourself. There is hope for a better tomorrow. The grace to needed to bounce back from every unpleasant situation must and only be obtained and sought by prayer.

God grace can save us without our preaching, but our preaching cannot save us without God’s grace. You need His grace to resurrect.

We must faithfully and diligently use the means of grace given to us by faith to speak life into every area of our lives. We have to discharge our trust, we must speak life as we are commanded only in the name of Jesus according to Philippians 2:5-11. Only that name has the key to unlock every dead potential in us. The power in the of Jesus makes us dead to sin, that we may have life and live it abundantly.

Speak life and see life in every situation around and within your life.

God Bless.

REBUILDING YOUR BROKEN WALLS


Nehemiah_BuiltWall1-23mtq7y

We will be talking about Nehemiah, which describes his work in rebuilding Jerusalem during the Second Temple period. He was governor of Persian Judea under Artaxerxes I of Persia.

When they were taken captive, their temple (the one King Solomon built) was destroyed and the walls as well. Ezra the scribe built the temple and Nehemiah the Tirshatha built the walls.

Nehemiah was cupbearer to the king. Learning that the remnants of Judah were in distress and that the walls of Jerusalem were broken down, he wept for Jerusalem. Notice Nehemiah did not just weep, he also asked for forgiveness, took up the challenge and stood in the gap for the Jews. Nehemiah 1:1-11.

Prophet Jeremiah prophesied against Jerusalem, her kings, and the people because of their sins. The prophecy was fulfilled during the reign of king Zedekiah. 2 Chronicles 36.

Sin has a payday, trust me; it is never a good payday!!! Sin opens the door for the enemy to come in. Nehemiah agreed and accepted that the Jews had sin and he asked for forgiveness both for himself and his people. He was not playing the blame game.

In chapter two, he asked for king Artaxerxes permission to return and rebuild the city. Artaxerxes sent him to Judah as governor of the province with a mission to rebuild, letters explaining his support for the venture, and provision for timber from the king’s forest.

Upon his return to Jerusalem at night, he took along with him “ Trusted Few”

108.Nehemiah_Views_the_Ruins_of_Jerusalem's_Walls

(To be successful in life, you can’t have the crowd as your friend. You need an inner circle of people that understand your vision, which will encourage you to accomplish it. This group of people will stop at nothing until they see you become the best at what you do.)

These trusted few had the same mind, vision, purpose, and goal with him. They observed and took stock of the damage done to the walls. His inner circle was silent, they didn’t speak about it.

We need to learn how to stay silence; Godly silence is a powerful weapon to success. It is not everything happening around us or every plan we have that we are going to broadcast.

In chapter 2:17-18 Nehemiah encouraged his team in building back the walls. We need people to encourage us to get back up when we fall, we people with like minds to push us and make us see success as our only option.

When we have something great to achieve, there is a great door of opposition!

1 Corinthians 16:9. For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. (Other translations says, “ Many Oppose Me, Many Enemies.”

There are forces to contend with on the pathway in rebuilding your broken walls. They are problems at the edge of a breakthrough. The door of opportunity was open for Nehemiah and the Jews but a mighty force of opposition led by Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite was present. Nehemiah 1:10, 2:19-20.

At the peak of your breakthrough, the devil becomes real to you. When you have made the decision of a new start, a new turn around, the opposition will arise. It is very funny and strange to comprehend because you were once down, the devil was not noticing. But as soon as you make the decision for a new start, there’s a rage of hell against you.

When Nehemiah and the builders decided to build and the work for the rebuilding of the walls started from chapter four, they encountered all sorts of oppositions. They conquered because they stayed focus and they were determined.

262

  • Opposition by Ridicule: Nehemiah 4:1-6.

The enemies of the Jews mocked them saying, “What do theses Feeble Jews?” people around you who do not understand where you are coming from and where you are heading to will mock and ridicule you as soon as you being rebuilding your broken walls.

You have to stay focus, be determined. It’s your end that matters most. Focus on the positive things you are doing.

  • Opposition by Anger: Nehemiah 4:7-9.

When the enemy mocked Nehemiah and the Jews and didn’t succeed in making them stop the building of the walls. They became very angry with them. Vs 9.

In every good thing you want to achieve in life, the opposition will arise. When people can’t stop you from achieving your God-given dream, they start getting angry with you at every given opportunity. You will defeat this opposition with intense prayer in Nehemiah 4:9.

  • Opposition by Discouraged Co-Workers: Nehemiah 4:10-23.

When oppositions arise from people close to us, it is sometimes very hard to conquer. Nehemiah understood the power of the inner circle and its effects. He tackled the situation immediately. You are the carrier of your own vision. You need to strengthen your inner circle. The prayer of faith is needed and encouraging ourselves in the lord is a weapon to succeed.

  • Opposition by Greed and Heartlessness:

People will envy you when you start taking positive steps and having positive results. It is all because of jealousy. The people who you trusted most will disappoint you. It is not because they hate you; perhaps they can’t handle your new self. Jealousy is very common these days; the only antidote is focus and determination. Keeping and protecting your vision with silence.

Joseph was talkative; he paid the price dearly for it. David did not announce to Saul and the rest of Israel that he has been anointed a king. Jesus stayed silent for 30 years.

To build back our broken walls, silence is a great tool. It keeps the enemy guessing, and we keep on advancing.

  • Opposition by Deceits and Craftiness: Nehemiah 6:1-14.

When the enemies of the Jews had tried every means possible is stopping the rebuilding of the walls and did not succeed, they tried deceits and false prophesy. Nehemiah 6:1-14.

Nehemiah is a man filled with the Spirit of God, without the Spirit of God in man, man is living a life without meaning.

The Spirit of God in man gives Life and Inspiration, which leads to a better Understanding. And Wisdom to be able to Discern and learn the strategies of the devil.

Job 32:8

But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

The next verse says

“Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.”

The message translations say, “Getting old doesn’t guarantee good sense”

A false prophet was hired to distract and stop the work. We need to say, guard, using the Gift Of Discernment, this way we’re able to conquer the devil. The Spirit of God in us helps in making and taking decisions, it gives insight also on right and wrong bits of advice.

Nehemiah was focused, watchful and prayerful. His inner circle had the same goal and vision with him. Having people around us with the same mindset and goals are the quickest and easiest way to achieve our great dreams. Because they will stop at nothing until they see us as the top.

“We need to carefully choose our circle”

Finally

nehemiah-1024x731

The walls were finally built and completed in 52 days, not because they were many and they had the manpower. Nah it was because they were only determined and like minds were working together. Focus and success were their driving force.

Like I said from the beginning, Ezra built the Temple. The Temple signifies the return of True Worship to God. Nehemiah built the Walls. The Walls signifies the Defense of the Jerusalem and its inhabitants.

In the era of Ezra, the opposition was not as fierce as that of Nehemiah. Why? The enemy knew with the walls down and the temple rebuilt, the enemy could still attack with ease. But with the building of the walls of Jerusalem which signifies her defense, the opposition was great and fierce because the enemy knew, she’s now protected and her people are safe.

The enemy doesn’t care about those that are already down. He cares about those that are standing and the one planning to get back up.

“Righteous man falls 7 times and still get back up, because of his Vision.”

You need to get back to your original Vision for your life. Face the opposition and stay focus, you will be victorious if you do. The best is only good enough for you, go for the best and press harder for the utmost goal. You will definitely come out successful.

After Nehemiah had finished building the walls of Jerusalem, he restored order and put everything in place. He placed the right people in the right department.

He read the laws of God to the people. We need to do exactly the same and we will have positive results.

Making God number 1 in our lives will keep our walls, which signifies our defense safe from attacks.

Sin is not Negotiable, we must Avoid Sin.

THE PROMISES OF A NEW BEGINNING


new-beginnings_t_nv

There come a time when a new page is needed to be open, a time when a fresh start is required. A time where decisions are on the crossroad.

The new beginning is an era of new walk with Christ Jesus, an era where carnality is nailed to the cross of Christ Jesus. The new beginning is an initial and crucial stage of a closer walk with God, a time where a solid foundation is needed for a new start. The new beginning is a fresh start where by the old foundation cannot carry the new structures and standards of God.

The new beginning is a time and season where by you forget the past: past failures, trials, defeats, problems, guilt, bondage, and calamities. And you look only unto Jesus. Hebrews 12:1-2.

New beginning is an era where credibility and honesty becomes maximum priority. A time where No is No and Yes is Yes! It’s a time when purity and holiness is no more an option, but a Divine mandate.

Promises attached to the New Beginning

Bl0__iRIUAIx0-b.jpg-large

  1. The former things are by gone.

Isaiah 42:9:

Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

God is assuring us that old things are by gone. We cannot put a new wine into an old one it will sour it. A new start, prize, goal, and target are needed now.

God is promising to do new and great things in the new beginning. Better covenant, better start than we have had in times past.

Isaiah 43:18-19:

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

God is promising to do greater things than He has done before. God is saying forget the former things, better days are ahead.

God will do a new thing it shall spring forth. Do you get the revelation here?

Spring Forth: This means for a new thing to happen, there must be the Planting of the Lord. Isaiah 61:3b: a time where God is going to plant new things, the seed of: greatness, prosperity, purity, righteousness, holiness, success and lots more.

God is promising to make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. God is promising us, if only we can fully trust Him. God is guaranteeing us that in the new start, He will be our Shepard and we will not lack anything good. He will be our provider. Psalm 23.

  1. The promises of Mercies and Unfailing Love.

Isaiah 43:25:

I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

God is assuring us that the new start comes with total pardon. He said He has blotted out our sins. This implies the devil can no longer accuse us. The devil has no say over our lives because God Has forgiven us all.

The blood of Jesus washes us as white as snow. It cries for mercy, it speaks better things than the blood of Abel. Hebrews 12:24b.

God is saying, “ He will not remember our sins” our past is forgotten.

Don’t get me wrong!!!

“ Wrong doing is never right, and sin has it payday. Trust me, it is not a good payday.” But grace will find and locate us; it will help us deal with the consequences.

  1. There is complete Redemption with the New Beginning.

Isaiah 44:22:

I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.

Our transgression and sins are as a cloud, a thick cloud. They interpose and separate us form God. But God is still assuring us that with the decision for a new beginning, He will take away this thick cloud, this burden so we can have a better fellowship with Him.

To have a new start we only need to perform these three things

928724_854888511231689_2071300305_n

  • Walk on the High Way of Holiness: Isaiah 35:8.

And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

This is the way of Godliness, the way of Holy worship, Holy conversation and most importantly: Holy living.

The way of holiness carries righteous duties in which we ought to walk and press forward with our eyes focus on Jesus, which is our ultimate goal as Christians.

  • Walk on the Old Path, the Good Old Way: Jeremiah 6:16.

Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said; We will not walk therein.

This is the good old way, the old time religion. We have an Unchanging God in a Changing World. His Words, Rules and Standards remain the same!

We need to follow God and obey Him fully to benefit from this new start. It might look very difficult but it is very possible.

God wants to have a new covenant with us. Not the old ones, He wants to be our God and We His people. He wants His laws to be on the table of our hearts written there. He wants us to practice the true religion of truth and holiness.

  • Sow in Righteousness and Reap Mercy: Hosea 10:12.

Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

When you sow in righteousness, you will reap mercy. God wants us to break that fallow/harden ground of sin and worldly pleasures. We need to cleanse our heart from all unfruitful affections and lust, which are as weed and be of a broken and contrite spirit.

Finally,

  • We need to be wise and very vigilant in the journey of the new beginning. We should sow a seed of holy and righteous living. We need to return to the practice of good works according to the law of God. Lets feed our faith, so our flesh can starve and loose its grip over us: Galatians 5:16.
  • Every action is a seed sown let us sow in righteousness. Let us sow what we ought to sow (Holiness and Righteous living). Let us do what we ought to do and we shall have the benefits of it.
  • To get the full benefits of the new beginning, we need to seek God and grace to press on. “ For by strength shall no man prevail.” We can’t run this race on our own, but His grace is very sufficient for us.
  • It is time for us to seek and look for God; if we do our part, He will do His. If we sow to ourselves in righteousness, if we be willing and obedient, if we be diligent and careful to do our rightful duties in dependence upon His Grace: Then He will shower down His Grace upon us and will rain Righteousness upon us. Righteousness is what we need to practice, for by the grace of God we are what we are.

Remember: 2Corinthians 7:1.Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

We have these promises but we have to cleanse ourselves from all dirt’s of the Flesh and Spirit. WE MUST PRACTICE HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD.

 

God bless. Pst Zino

“Run The Race!”Laying Aside Every Weight & Sin. Hebrews 12:1-2.


lay-aside

Hebrews 12:1-21 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

heb-12

There’s a Race to Run as a Christian, the Race is not to the swift, we need the grace to accomplish our goals in life.

Grace is already available, Jesus told us that His grace is sufficient for us. This means everything we need in life to help us fulfill our dream is already at our disposal. But one thing is missing and we are to find it and apply it to our lives. This missing puzzle is FOCUS. Hebrews 12:1-2, Hebrews 4:15-16 bears a lot of witnesses against us. In the sense that, Jesus our role model came into the earth as flesh so He can understand our pains, worries, and struggles. This means we are not justified if we do not make it, it is not God’s fault.

To succeed in life we need to put our trust in Jesus, focusing on Him only. Our lives are compared to a race, if we plan well, we will definitely have a perfect finish.We have to Run with Passion, Purpose and Perspective and in all we need to be Persistence.

The Key to Persistence is Passion, and the Key to Passion is Purpose. The race before us is a race of Purpose, we must run with Purpose not aimlessly. And the Key to Purpose is having the Right Perspective.

This duty consist of two parts, the preparatory and the perfective phase.

The Preparatory: Lay aside every weight, and sin.

  • Every weight, that is not in line with the will of God, the inordinate affection and concern for the body, and for the present life and world. The wrong care for the present life, the wrong ideas and perspective towards life. This weighs upon us, preventing us to actually see what God have destine for us. This weigh pull us down, instead to uplift us, it drags us backward instead of to push us forward. This makes our walk with God heavier and very difficult. we have to lay aside all external and internal hindrances.
  • The Sin that so easily Beset Us; those little things that we think it doesn’t matter, the little sin of hatred, talkative, backbiting, quarrelling, those sin that we easily fall into. We have to drop it totally.

The Perfective: Run with patience the race that is set before us. There is a race before us, we must finish well. But we have to persevere, press on knowing that there there is a crown for well doing. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9

  • We have a race to run, a race of service, and a race of sufferings, a part of total obedience to God.
  • This race is set before us, both by the word of God, and the examples of His faithful servants. They are the cloud of witnesses which are compassed round about us.

This race must be Run with Patience and Perseverance. There will be a great deal of patience to overcome the difficulties we will encounter in life, and also a great will to persevere in times of temptation.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Remember I said Focus is our main goal and priority in finishing well.

Why should we focus on Jesus?

  1. He is the Author of our faith, the beginning, perfecter and rewarder of it.  His life is a living example of a man of vision and purpose. He had His reasons for coming to earth. He came to take away the sins of this world, He trusted in God and totally yielded Himself to the will of the father.
  2. He is the Finisher of our faith, He fulfilled all promises of God concerning redemption and He restored hope to man and reconciled us back to our father.
  3. He is the finisher of Grace.
  4. He endured the contradiction sinners against Himself, we as focus people, we need to have the same mind set. Opposition will arise but a positive attitude makes all the difference.
  5. He endure the cross, He Despised the shame. but He is sitting with the Father in Heaven. After the Thorn Comes the Crown

Jesus had something in view despite all the hardship and sufferings, through His sufferings, we have boldness to enter into the Holiest, the middle wall of Partition is broken down, we are redeemed from the Curse of the law, the Handwriting of ordinances written against us is blotted out.

He did all this so we could have authority. This makes me understand that, no matter what you might be going through, better days are ahead, joy comes in the morning no matter how hard or dark the night may be. There is hope!!

Finally: We need to drop all the excess luggages we are carrying, the load of Guilt, past Mistakes, past Errors and Focus only on Jesus. Forget what you have done before in the past, I might have done worst. There’s always someone who have done worst than you. turn your mess into a beautiful message and your tests and trials into wonderful testimony and look only to Jesus. Press forward, for the Mark of the Price of the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Faith and constant meditation in the things of God will fetch in fresh supplies of strength, comfort and courage, and it will help us run our race till the end when we will rest at the close of the day. There is a great Crown of Glory that awaits us AT THE FINISHING LINE. Faith and Patience are conquering Grace for the Great finish. For the great finish we consider these Rules.

  • We must get serious about finishing well, since a great cloud of witnesses have gone before us.
  • It is now our turn to run the race and watch the mistakes and  errors of our great leaders and learn from it so we don’t make the same mistake.
  • We must lay aside every encumbrance that would prevent us from finishing well.
  • Jesus ran His own race and endured hardship by fixing His eyes on the rewards, we must follow His own example. Philippians 2:5-11.

God Richly Bless You

One Purpose, One Target, One Goal!


IMG_1042.JPG
Living a life of purpose is the most easiest thing to do, yet many people find it hard to live a life of purpose. There are millions of materials, books and utilities at our disposal yet man is till ignorant in finding his purpose and how to pursue it.

We must live for something in life. Either something positive or negative!
Bro Paul said ” For me to live is Christ and to Die is Gain! ” Phil 1:21.
We have to make choices in life and these choices will be the foundation of our future.

When we talk of purpose we are talking of our aim, our objectives, the reason for our existence, our intended desire, our goal and the determination to drive us through in fulfilling our God-given dream.

The simplicity of life is found in our purpose and we can only achieve these purposes by obeying the standards and principles of God given to us through the Bible.

Some of these principles are:

1. The love of the Father (1 John 2:15-17)
This love we are talking about here is the basis of our Christianity because our Father God Almighty is love and we as His children are commanded to love one another as Christ loved us and gave Himself for us. We have to give ourselves to His agenda and purposes for our life. We have no reasons to be here but to accomplish God’s plans for our lives.

2. The power of priority (Isaiah 28:10)
Precept must be upon precept, line must be upon line, here a little and there a little. The power of priority has made every successful man we see today become who God wanted them to be.
Priority means doing first things first, the right to take precedence in obtaining certain goals and objectives. It is also the law of order.

3. The law of wisdom (Proverbs 4:7; Job 28:28)
Wisdom is the ability to follow the instructions of God, it is the fear of God, the ability to understand your purpose, to spot the difference in people. This gives you and edge over your peers. It is the ability to understand how necessary and essential it is to sacrifice the lusts for today for tomorrow’s eternity.

4. The law of difference.
If the difference in a man is spotted out, being positive or negative, it is because there’s something unique or outstanding about him and this is what makes him different from other people.
You must study what makes you positively unique (differences) and not your weakness, this will help you get closer to your assignment. Your success in life is strictly related to what makes you stand out from the multitude.

5. The law of the mind.
We are all products of our minds. The mind can be compared to a fertile ground that yields fruits depending on what is sown, according to the unbreakable laws of nature. Your mind will always return multiples of what it’s fed with. To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction (Newton’s third law). This implies that your mind must be adequately fed because your mind is your world. Therefore, if you can manage your mind, you can manage your life and subsequently your day. Positive motivation is vital for the human mind. The process of motivation of the human mind has the tendency to travel along a projectile motion, but that of an ideal mind is the concatenation of the first half-life of a projectile motion. As the ideal mind, your mind needs constant renewal, new projects, positive inspirations and mentoring.
Shouts out to my engineering guys, for explaining the projectile part and Newton third law!! 🙌👏😄😊 am a pharmacist I deal with drugs🙈🙈🙌

When you understand these principles life becomes simple, you are able to answer these three questions which are:

1. Who are You? This solves your IDENTITY! If you read the book of John, you remember he was the first prophet to appear after 400 years of silence. He knew who he was. When they asked him Who are You? He could answer! He said “I AM THE VOOICE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS!” This is it👌👊. John 1:19-25.

2. Why are you Here? This solves your PURPOSE! Your assignment is found in your purpose. This influences your decisions and approaches towards life.👏🙌

3. How Shall I Be? This solves how you FUNCTION AND HOW YOU OPERATE! It directs you to your destiny with ease!

Finally!! Answers to the questions will narrow down your life to a simple one. You actually remove from your life, Confusion, Frustration, Stress, Anxiety & Worry. Leading you to a successful life and great achievements in life.
Some People are Satisfied with it, if it good; Some want it Better. The Best is only Good Enough For Me!!!!🙌👏💒💎
God bless,

IL VERO TE


IMG_3434.JPG
Tu sei più che il corpo che si vede. Tu sei più il caso che ospita i sensi (vista, udito, tatto, gusto e dei sensi).
Dentro di te, c’è qualcosa, in realtà, qualcuno molto più del tuo corpo.
L’uomo interiore è quella che la Bibbia definisce in 1 Pietro 3:4
“Ma sia che l’uomo nascosto del cuore, in ciò che non è corruttibile, anche l’ornamento di un mite e spirito quieto … “
Quando il corpo di un uomo muore, il suo spirito vive. E’ ancora tanto la persona umana che era prima di morire, egli non ha perso nulla, tranne che ha perso la capacità di funzionare nel mondo fisico. Il suo corpo potrebbe essere morto, ma la persona reale, l’uomo spirito, ha ancora la coscienza che aveva prima di morire.

Gesù Cristo ha raccontato una storia in Luca 16:19-31 circa due uomini che sono morti. Uno era un mendicante, di nome Lazzaro. Il punto non è che lui era un mendicante, ma se era povera, aveva un cuore retto. Quando morì fu portato nel seno d’Abramo. Il secondo uomo è morto anche, sebbene ricco del mondo, non aveva vissuto una vita retta così quando morì, non è stato trovato nel seno d’Abramo. Si noti che quando morì, il suo corpo fu sepolto in terra, ma Gesù ha detto che all’inferno, questo ricco uomo alzò gli occhi e vide Lazzaro nel seno d’Abramo e riconobbe Lazzaro. Questo significa che vedeva ancora. Poi chiamò Abramo e disse: “per favore aiutami”.

Questo dimostra poteva ancora parlare. Abramo ha parlato di nuovo con lui e udì la voce di Abramo, il che implica che poteva ancora sentire. L’uomo ricco ha anche detto che aveva sete e, non solo, era anche in agonia così pregava” vi preghiamo di Lazzaro vieni a darmi una goccia d’ acqua per raffreddare la mia sete”. C’è ancora un altro punto da notare qui, poteva ancora sentire.
Tutti i suoi sensi, dove ancora intatte. In realtà, egli riusciva nemmeno a ricordare le cose perché ha detto, “per favore, manda qualcuno tra i morti per andare a predicare ai miei fratelli”. Ebbe cinque fratelli sulla terra. Così ha pensato, ‘magari se qualcuno dai morti andrà da loro, loro lo credono. Ricordava i suoi fratelli!

Questo permette di sapere che lo spirito dell’uomo vive. C’è una vita dopo la morte: essa non solo finisce qui. Come siete preparati per questa vita senza fine dopo la morte? Quando un uomo è nato di nuovo, è il suo spirito che nasce ancora una volta! 2 Corinzi 5:17-18 dice, quindi se uno è in Cristo, egli è una nuova creatura, le cose vecchie sono passate, ecco, tutte le cose sono diventate nuove. Ora tutte le cose sono di Dio, che ci ha riconciliati con sé per mezzo di Gesù Cristo, e ci ha dato il ministero della riconciliazione.
