Leadership for the hearts and minds of the people

YOUR MISSION CHILDREN OF GOD SHOULD YOU DECIDE TO ACCEPT IT IS:

Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, the son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  (Matthew 28:19-20)

JESUS INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO CARRY OUT THE MISSION

In order for us to climb that ladder of success, move to that high place that God is trying to take us, it requires strong and deciles leadership.  Jesus has called not only His Disciples, but each believer to GO and become a leader by obeying the Great Commission and making disciples of all nations.

After Jesus had given his disciples their assigned MISSION, he did what any great leader would do.  He then gave them instructions on just how to carry out their mission.

Jesus instructions were crystal clear and concise.  Now listen, take note and understand how these instructions were also meant for you as you accepted Jesus call to GO. These are the instructions Jesus gave his twelve disciples.

“Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans.  Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.  As you go, preach this message: The kingdom of heaven is near.  Heal the sick, raise the dead, and cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.  Freely you have received, freely give.  Do not take along any gold or silver or copper in your belts; take no bag for the journey, or extra tunic, or sandals or a staff; for the worker is worth his keep.” “Whatever town or village you enter, search for some worthy person there and stay at his house until you leave.  As you enter the home, give it your greeting.  If the home deserves, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you.  If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town.  I tell you the truth; it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the Day of Judgment than for the town.  I am sending you out like sheep among wolves.  Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.”  (Matthews 10:5-16)

These instructions will never self-destruct.  They are a permanent part of your road map into the future.  The choice is yours, the future is NOW!  You must stop wasting time and be about God’s business.  He is standing at the gate waiting on each one of us that has accepted His call to GO, to walk swiftly through the gate and into the arms of the FATHER who is patiently waiting.

HAVE YOU DECIDED TO ACCEPT THE MISSION?

Your Purpose is the engine that drives success

 

The “bull’s eye” may not be hit by the rifleman whose hand is uncertain, and his footing infirm.  The goal will never be reached by the runner who swerves from a straight course, and wanders into a pathless wilderness.  The student will accomplish nothing who flies from study to study with the restlessness of disease; and no man, whatever his condition or mental powers, will win or deserve success, unless he fixes upon some special object to be carried out, and through cloud and sunshine steadily perseveres in his settled purpose.

Purpose, indeed, is the very essence the main element of a heroic character.  It was purpose which animated Ignatius Loyola in his ascetic labors; in persecution, and captivity, and physical suffering, still toiling at the fulfillment of his cherished design, the establishment of that “Society of Jesus,” whose influence on the world’s history has been so signal and remarkable.  Martin Luther’s purpose” achieved the ReformationOliver Cromwell’s purpose” turned the tide of battle at Naseby, and placed him in the seat of the English Kings.  Mahoney’s “purpose” built up a mighty empire and fixed the firm foundations of a new creed.  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “purpose” was to build a powerful non violent movement and bring people of color excess to the ballot box.  Barack Obama “purpose” was to create a movement of change that would propel him to the President of the United States of America and the leader of the free world.

The man who concentrates his energies upon the fulfillment of an unalterable design will assuredly wring success from the hands of a reluctant fortune.  Such a man will take no heed of “impossibilities.”  “Impossible?” exclaimed Napoleon, “there is nothing impossible; it is a word only found in the dictionary of fools.” Jesus said, “If you have the faith of a grain of mustard seed, nothing will be impossible for you.”  The difference between genius and mediocrity lies chiefly in this matter of “purpose” for true genius has, what mediocrity usually wants, the capacity of labor.  “Work and purpose” is the moral of every heroic life.

 

How to loose weight by changing your thinking

 

In everything we do, it is not the actual physical actions themselves that create the results, but it is the mindset we have while doing it. The physical actions themselves are a means by which we channel the energy of intent into physical manifestation. It is the energy of intent we do things with that determines the outcome we get. This is the secret that explains why different people can do the same exact things but get very different results. In truth, Mind is Principle over everything in life that we engage in.

Learning to use your mind power to control your physical body is your key to your weight reduction.  There is no genie in the bottle that is going to help you lose weight.  You can listen to all the commercials and so call experts tell you about the greatest methods they have discovered that will help you lose weight and you can end up spending hundreds and even thousands of dollars trying to drop those extra pounds and yes for a short time you might be able to lose a few of those pounds because someone has convinced you that you really could and you yourself has told yourself that you were going to do it this time.

Look around any city and you will see all kinds of gym springing up.  Radio and TV commercials advertising great rates for the first time user, you see some people with great looking bodies coming out of those beautiful places and you say wow, I want to get my body looking like that.  Well guest what, you can get your body into any desired physical condition that you may desire.  And yes, going to the gym will help, but it is not the key to your body becoming physically sculptured. 

The first thing you must remember is the word, “Desire” keep this word in the fore front of your mind.  Pray on it, meditate on it, and write it down and all the time ask yourself, what is it that I desire?  Why do I desire it?  When you answer these questions, allow that desire to become a burning desire within you.  So much so, that everywhere you go, and everything that you do, you will feel that burning desire deep within your soul to make a change in your life.  It is that burning desire to make that change that will propel you into action in such a way that you will begin to feel thinner, you will look into the mirror and see yourself at the desired weight loss and sculptured figured you desired for yourself.

The second thing you must remember is the word, “Belief.”  You see nothing happens until you can believe within your mind that it can happen.  You can go to the gym and work out daily, take all kinds of diet pills, sign onto all the weight loss programs in the world, but until you believe it in your own mind that you really can lose 10, 20, 50, 100 pounds or any desired amount nothing is going to happen.  The reason so many people become so discussed with their weight loss programs, is that the people don’t always tell you the whole truth.  All they care about is getting your money and then you are really left on your own.  Another reason is that a great many of them don’t understand the secret to weight loss and therefore how can they really help you when they have not come into the reality of how the power of the minds works.  You must believe it in order to conceive it and then have it.  Set your weight lost goal, set a reasonable time frame in which to achieve it, then believe in your mind that you are going to achieve it and then wow, you would have achieve what everyone has been telling you that could not be done.

The third thing you must remember is the word, “Faith.”  Faith must be your central focus point to keeping you on track towards reaching your desired goal.  Remember what faith is:  “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  (Hebrews 11:1).”  This is not a definition of faith, but it is a description of what faith does when one takes it and truly believes that it will work for them.  This word substance means “essence” or “reality.”  Faith treats things hoped for as reality.  When your reality is centered upon your weight reduction program and you do not allow doubt to enter into your desired goal, the results will be faith in action.  The word “Evidence” means “proof” or “conviction.”  Faith itself proves that what is unseen is real.  Whatever you have fixed in your mind to make happen in reducing your weight to your desired goal, although it may not be seen with the physical eye at this very moment, but the mind’s eye sees it, accepts it, and then begins to execute your request to bring it into reality at your desired date and time. 

The fourth thing you must remember is the word, “Intent.”  What is your intent for wanting to lose weight?  What purpose will it serve you?   Your intent must be clear and communicated to your mind through a clear thought process.  Allowing your mind the opportunity to gather unto itself all the necessary forces of energy it needs to transform you into the person you desire to be.  Be certain about what you want and why you want it.  Let your intent become crystal clear in your mind. 

The fifth and final point you must remember is the word, “Transform.”  The word transform simply means to change.  You see if you want to lose weight for any reason, there must be a change in your thinking.  Everything begins and ends in the mind.  In order for you to lose weight, you have to think it.  If you want a sculptured body, thinking about how you would look, the clothes you would wear and how others would be attracted to you.  Your mind is an energy field.  It attracts to it the thoughts that are broad cast into it by your very own thoughts.  A negative thought attracts negative things.  Positive thoughts attract positive things.  Therefore if you think eating health foods will help you be health and help to reduce your weight, it will do just that.  The law of attraction is at work here.  Weather it is good or bad, your mind will produce the desired results that you ask it to do.  The Bible teaches us to ask, believe and we shall receive.  You were created with the mind of God.  A mind that can create, build up and tear down.  Whatever you want your mind to do, it is there at your command waiting for instructions from you.  You have the power to change whatever circumstances that you are now facing.  Nothing in your life is impossible to you.  The transforming from the old to the new begins with you.  It all begins in your mind.  You must change your thinking from the, “I can’t” to the “I can.”  I can do all things through God who strengths me.  The weight that I have on now is only temporary.  I can reduce my weight by 50 pounds within the next 10 months by transforming my thinking, executing this formula and excepting nothing less than my own reality.  With that in mind the brand new me is a done deal.

We are saved by God’s Grace

  Paul says in Romans, chapter five, that we are justified by faith (v. 1). Faith means trusting God to love us, because of what he did in Jesus Christ, and entrusting ourselves wholeheartedly to that divine love. Salvation is by grace — we do not deserve God’s favor toward us and we can never earn it. We access this grace by faith, which means that we must always look outside ourselves for our salvation (2 Tim. 1:12).

     We cannot perform the work which results in our salvation, for Jesus has already done that, once for all time. We cannot add to that finished work, or improve on it. We can only trust God to be gracious to us as he promises in Christ. If we picture grace as the room of God’s favor, we may think of faith as the door into that room (Rom. 5:1-2).

     God accepts us because of Christ’s work on our behalf. We enjoy that grace by accepting it as fact, trusting it as sufficient, and throwing ourselves on it in total and eternal abandon, to become servants of righteousness and true holiness in Christ. We do not earn God’s favor. We can not ever please Him enough to be given His blessings. We certainly could never pay for our own sins and be saved. But in Christ God has brought together the justice that is his nature and the weakness that is ours: Christ became a man and took our place.

     God’s grace deals with the weakness of our flesh because salvation does not depend on our weak flesh — Jesus has earned it for us already! It also takes into account God’s holiness, because sin is punished — by the death of God’s sinless Son! And so Paul can say to the EphesiansChristians:

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast (Eph. 2:8-9).

The great and mighty God of all the Universe, I bow before you this day in the name of your son Jesus, I want to thank you for what you have already done in my life and the lives of those you have placed under my care. I am not going to wait until I see results or receive rewards; I am thanking you right now. I am not going to wait until I feel better or things look better; I am thanking you right now.

I am thanking you because I am alive. I am thanking you because I made it through the day’s difficulties. I am thanking you because I have walked around the obstacles.

I am thanking you because I have the ability and the opportunity to do more and do better.

I am thanking you because FATHER, YOU have not given up on me.

There is nothing that is more important to me right now than to thank you and praise your holy name because you are worthy to be praised.

Sunday Prayer Praise and Worship Service 100 (Being Thankful Lesson 3)

 

Scripture Reading: Luke 17:11-19 MSG

It happened that as he made his way toward Jerusalem, he crossed over the border between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered a village, ten men, all lepers, met him. They kept their distance but raised their voices, calling out, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”

Taking a good look at them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.”being thankful 08

They went, and while still on their way, became clean. One of them, when he realized that he was healed, turned around and came back, shouting his gratitude, glorifying God. He kneeled at Jesus’ feet, so grateful. He couldn’t thank him enough—and he was a Samaritan.

Jesus said, “Were not ten healed? Where are the nine? Can none be found to come back and give glory to God except this outsider?” Then he said to him, “Get up. On your way. Your faith has healed and saved you.”

Today’s Worship Service title: Being Thankful

 

 

 QUESTION: How important is Alter Call?
It is the most important thing that any Servant of the Lord can do. We are called to bring the lost sheep in from the cold. How can we do this if we never call them to come forth and accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior? When we make the call the Holy Spirit will convict them to answer the call. Therefore, if you are truly a disciple of Christ, it is your obligation to make the call.

Being Thankful (Lesson 2)

 

Today My Brothers and Sisters, we lift our eyes up towards heaven and give the Lord all our praises for He has brought us through the trials and tribulations of this life and allowed us to be right where we are on this very day.  Let our hearts be filled with gratitude for the awesome works He has done in chiseling us out and making us the person we are today and who we are to become in the future.

 

 

LET US PRAY:

All wise God our Heavenly Father, we enter into your presence with thanksgiving and into the Holy gates with praise. For on this day Father, there is so much that we have to be thankful for, and if we try to list all the things we have been blessed with, there would not be enough space are time to list them all.  So Father I will just say, thank you for every blessing that I have received, for every blessing you have provided to the people you have placed in my life, for all the readers, followers, bloggers, ministers and especially our disciples that are building ministries all over the world.  For without you Heavenly Father, there would be no us, so Father we go forth this day lifting up your Holy name in high praise and with great honor because you have given so much and asked for so little in return.  We thank you Father for all that you do, to enrich our lives and make us a better people, in Jesus name, Amen!

Today’s Scriptures on Being Thankful:

Come, let’s shout praises to God,being thankful 08
raise the roof for the Rock who saved us!
Let’s march into his presence singing praises,
lifting the rafters with our hymns!

And why? Because God is the best,
High King over all the gods.
In one hand he holds deep caves and caverns,
in the other hand grasps the high mountains.
He made Ocean—he owns it!
His hands sculpted Earth! (Psalms 95:1-5 MSG)

Every time I think of you—and I think of you often!—I thank God for your lives of free and open access to God, given by Jesus. There’s no end to what has happened in you—it’s beyond speech, beyond knowledge. The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives.         (1 Corinthian 1:4-5 MSG)

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17 ESV)

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.                                       (1 Thessalonians 5:18 ESV)

Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

(Psalms 106:1 ESV)

For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints,  I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.         (Ephesians 1:15-16 ESV)

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.  This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. (2 Corinthians 9:11-12 ESV)

Being Thankful (Lesson 1)

Being Thankful (Lesson 1)

being thankful 08

Today My Brothers and Sisters, we begin a series of lessons on “Being Thankful.”  Because we are entering into the Holiday Season these lessons will be a reminder for us to share with one another our gratefulness in our Spiritual Being as one people, living in the body of Christ, and embracing our uniqueness as sons and daughters of the most high.

For me, I am thankful for each one of you who take the time to visit here with us day in and day out, taking the time to read, study and share the Word of God with others.  I am grateful for being given the privilege to serve as one of the Lord’s servant in a capacity that helps fulfill His Mission of taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the World, and thankful that the Lord has sent so many of you who has decided to join in with me and be a total part of reaching out to help the Lord’s people.

My heart is humble and I am grateful for your service to the Kingdom of God beyond measure.  Therefore, I will say to you the same words that Paul spoke to the Corinthians.  “Every time I think of you—and I think of you often!—I thank God for your lives of free and open access to God, given by Jesus. There’s no end to what has happened in you—it’s beyond speech, beyond knowledge. The evidence of Christ has been clearly verified in your lives. (1 Corinthians 1:4-5 MSG)

May you continue to find joy and peace in the work you do as you embrace each other with a heart filled with love and understanding for what the Lord has done for each one of His Children.  For we all are His people and the Sheep of His pasture, let there be no division between us as we go forth into this Holiday Season being thankful and sharing with each other the many blessings that the Lord has set before us this day.  May His mercy and grace be with you through all eternity, in Jesus name, Amen!
