Divide & Conquer

One of our goals, as Christians, should be to continuously be effective in ministry. We have to remember that the church is not a social club. We are family in Christ. Because we are family, little things will come up to test us. It glorifies God when we overlook the little stuff and work together for His kingdom. Part of working together is sharing your testimony with each other. Your testimony is powerful, it gives others hope. Just like you are constantly looking for something else, somebody is looking for what you already have. It is also important to share your testimony because most people don’t know Jesus and the only Jesus they are going to ever know and see is the Jesus in you. Fellowship is imperative to being effective in ministry. Growth happens through the relationships you have with the other saints in the church. The adversary gets us by dividing and conquering.

I’m In It…But I’m Coming Out

We have all heard the story of Paul and Silas but there are some interesting things that were happening in the background of this well-known story. Barnabas was the reason Paul got in with the apostles but they ended up having a disagreement and parting ways. Barnabas and Paul had problems but it didn’t stop them from working for God. People in church feel like, if a problem arises, they need to leave the church but if the apostles had problems and could still do the work of God, so can we. Sometimes, when you live for God more stuff happens to you. In fact, we don’t really grow unless stuff is happening to us. We can’t grow in the mountaintops, we grow in the valley! Paul and Silas were having a valley experience, but instead of complaining and pointing fingers they prayed and sang praises to God. It was at midnight that their praises tore down the prison walls and loosed all chains. Midnight signifies the darkest hour. Some of us are in trouble but we have to remember that we can come out of it, and we can drag others out of it with us!

Are You Ashamed of Jesus?

Are you ashamed of Jesus? Do you realize how hard it was to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in biblical times? Paul wrote letters that he had to hand deliver the various churches, one of which was the Roman church. In his letter to the Romans he wrote, “I am not ashamed of the gospel”. Rome was the capitol of the world, where Caesar lived. Caesar was considered their god, so they did not take kindly to someone who was saying that our God is greater than all other gods. It is not nearly as hard to spread the gospel in this day and age, but it seems that many of us are ashamed of the gospel. We can’t be in the world and of the world. Just like Paul, we have to be bold and unashamed. We have to be the light that shares the gospel! The Gospel is all about the lamb of God who was slain and the savor who loved us so much that he did not want to see us ruined and destroyed because of sin.

The Whole Armor of God Part 1

A couple of weeks ago we talked about spiritual warfare. We talked about who we should be fighting and how the battlefield is not physical but it is in the mind. This week we are going to talk about how to fight the adversary. It’s all about being victorious over the enemy and knowing who the enemy is. God tells us the tricks of the devil in our Bibles including the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life. If you know the spirit and you realize that greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world, you know you have power over the devil and all of his tricks. When we come against things, God already knows about it. He has equipped us with everything that we need to fight. Our battles make us stronger in the Lord. Our tools are the armor of God. They are not carnal weapons. We have to put on the whole armor of God every day. Don’t forget your armor because you never know when the enemy is going to attack. The first thing God tells us to put on is the belt of truth. Truth holds it all together.

Remembering Jesus: The Blood & The Flesh

A couple of weeks ago we talked about the peculiarity and power of the blood and how significant it was to Passover. In the last supper Jesus told his disciples to drink His blood and eat His flesh. The scripture it says “This do in remembrance of me.” When many Christians hear that today, they think He wanted us to remember the life He lived, but Jesus wanted us to remember his death. The victory was won when his blood was shed! Back in biblical times, when Jesus said this they got confused. But Jesus was speaking from a spiritual standpoint. There is a difference between our physical senses and our spiritual senses. There is a scripture that says “taste and see.” The remarkable thing about the sense of taste is it is the one sense that takes in every other sense. Jesus wants us to remember how he shed his blood as complete payment for our sins so that we can live with no guilt of what we have done. There is nothing we can do to earn salvation.
