We are Marvelously made

WE ARE MARVELOUSLY MADE

 FORMED BY THE MOST AWESOME GOD IN OUR MOTHER’S WOMB

“Oh yes, glory Halleluiah, thank you Heavenly Father; you shaped me first inside, then out; YOU FORMED ME IN MY MOTHER’S WOMB. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am MARVELOUSLY MADE! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; you know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, the days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.” Psalm 139:13-14 (MSG)

All that I am and all that I will ever be, God is. God created me in his own image, and likeness. Everything about me God knew before I was even formed in my mother’s womb. I know, without a shadow of doubt, that I am MARVELOUSLY MADE.

Now when we look in our Bibles, we see a picture of just how God begin the process in Genesis chapter 1 verse 2. In the (a) verse the Bible says this “let us make man in our own image, according to our likeness.” This is a very important statement, because God spoke with His team before we were created in our mother’s womb, how he would design His most important creature, and then bring them into the physical realm of life.  How awesome, a God this is, that we now serve.

When I think about how MARVELOUSLY MADE you and I really are, I see a picture of a newborn baby, in my mind’s eye. This baby is in his mother’s womb. In a speck of watery material smaller than that over the dot of this i, all the future characteristics of this child are programmed, the color of his skin, eyes and hair, the shape of his facial features, the natural abilities he will have. All that the child will be physically and mentally is contained the in germ form in that fertilized egg. From it will develop: …60 trillion cells, 100,000 miles of nerve fiber, 60,000 miles of vessels carrying blood around the body, 250 bones, to say nothing of joints, ligaments and muscles.

Lord I thank you because you formed my inward parts; you covered me while I was still in my mother’s womb. Today Lord I give you the praise, the glory, and the entire honor, because without you there will be no me. All glory belongs to you and you alone, thank you Lord, thank you, thank you, thank you, for you deserve all the praise and glory that my mind can muster up. I am just a small part of this great universe.

Today, as I look towards the heels, from which all my blessings flow, a think of the marvelous creation that you accomplished in my mother’s womb. While I was in my mother’s womb, you formed my inward parts; each one a marvel of divine engineering. I think of my brain, for instance, with its capacity for recording facts, sounds, odors, sites, touch, pain; with its ability to recall; with its power to make computations; with its seemingly endless flair for making decisions and solving problems.

When I think of who I am and what I am in this vast universal, I know without a shadow of doubt that I am a marvelous created man. Sometimes I stop and think of God’s careful planning in the creation of my spirit, my soul, and body. How precious, are his thoughts, his attention to the minutest detail. Each cell almost without exception knows its role in carrying out design a purpose for which the welfare of the body as a whole is so marvelous made.

Now in conclusion, I refer you to Psalms 66 verses one through five, which reads as follow. Make a joyful shout to God, all the Earth! Sing out the honor of his name; make His praise glorious. Say to God, how awesome is your works! Through the greatness of your power, your enemies shall submit themselves to you. All the Earth shall worship you and sing praises to you; they shall sing praises to your name. And see the works of God; he is awesome in his doing towards the sons of man.

Truly I say to you, these powerful words that keep rolling around in my head; what an AWESOME GOD we serve, thank you Heavenly Father for I know that I AM MARVELOUSLY MADE!

What happens when you Believe

WEDNESDAY INSPIRATIONAL AND MOTIVATIONAL SERVICE 

My Brothers and Sisters, on this day, you were awaken into your brand new reality of a day you have never seen before, nor experienced any of the joy or even the pain, that lies ahead of you at this very moment in time.

But you have a choice to embrace the moment to go with the flow, and experience the possibilities of a greater reward by accepting the fact that God has favored you and rewarded you for greatness as His Servant, or you can follow the devil’s plan and miss out on your blessing all together.

The choice is truly yours, Jesus awaken you into His Marvelous light and allowed this thought to enter into your mind, now I ask you, “WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BELIEVE?

Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins. (Mark 11:22-23 MSG)

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BELIEVE?  Now I encourage you to click on this short video and allow Pastor Davis to speak a word of truth into your thought as you open your mind and receive the Lord’s Favor and Blessing over your life this day.

Knowing the Power and Grace of Jesus Christ

Knowing the Power and Grace of Jesus Christ

EVERYTHING IS GROWING AND REFLECTING IN THE MANNER GOD HAS CHOSEN IT TO BE (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

EVERYTHING IS GROWING AND REFLECTING IN THE MANNER GOD HAS CHOSEN IT TO BE                          (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, the Word of God teaches us that in our getting daily, the first and most important thing we must get in order to overcome the World is, “Get Understanding!”  Let us understand truly who we are, who God is, and who we are in God, then and only then can we know how to “Grow up in His power and grace.”  “Get Understanding!”

We were created in the image of God and given His Character that we “MAY GROW UP NOW IN THE AWESOME POWER AND GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST.”  We can do nothing of our own.  Our growth is totally depended upon the actions of God.  Everything in the Universe was created by God and for God that it may grow and flourish in the manner God has chosen it to be.  Therefore, as a newborn creature in this life, “IS TO GROW UP IN THE AWESOME POWER AND GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST!”

Now the question becomes, how do we accomplish our MISSION that God has given us?  As with all life, so it is with GROWTH.  We must learn to lean and depend on the maker and giver of all life.  Know that it is only God, who brings the bud to bloom and the flower to fruit. It is by his power that the seed develops,” first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.” Mark 4:28.

The plants and flowers grow not by their own care, anxiety, or effort, but by receiving that which God has furnished to minister to their life. The child cannot by any anxiety or power of its own, add to its own stature. No more can you, by anxiety or effort of yourself, secure spiritual growth.  No, all life is the mystery and work of God provided to us through His power and grace.

The plant, as well as the child, grows by receiving from its surroundings that which ministers to its life – air, sunshine, and food. What these gifts of nature are to animal and plant, such is Christ to those who trust in him. He is there” everlasting light,”  “a sun and shield.”  Isaiah 60:19; Psalms 84:11, he shall be as” the dew unto Israel.” “He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass.” Hosea 14:5; Psalms 72:6. He is the living water,” the bread of God… Which cometh down from heaven, and gives life unto the world” John 6:33!

THE SUNFLOWER (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE SUNFLOWER (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

As the flower turns to the sun, that the bright beams of day aid in perfecting its beauty and symmetry, so should we turn to the Son of righteousness, that heavens light may shine upon us, that our character may be developed into the likeness of Christ.

Jesus teaches the same thing when he says, “abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abides in the vine; no more can ye, except he abide in me… Without me you can do nothing.” John 15:4-5. You are just as dependent upon Christ, in order to live a holy life, as is the branch upon the parent stock for growth and fruitfulness. Apart From Him, you have no life. You have no power to resist temptation or to grow in grace and holiness. Abiding in him, you may flourish. Drawing your life from him, you will not wither nor be fruitless. You will be like a tree, planted by the rivers of water.

Many have an idea that they must do some part of the work alone. They have trusted in Christ for the forgiveness of sin, but now they seek by their own efforts to live aright. However, every such effort must fail. Jesus says,” Without me ye can do nothing.” Our growth in grace, our joy, our usefulness, all depend upon our union with Christ. It is by communion with him, daily, hourly, by abiding in him, that we are to grow in grace. He is not only the author, but the finisher of our faith. It is Christ first, last, and always. He is to be with us, not only at the beginning and the end of our course, but at every step of the way.” I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.” Psalms 16:8.

By faith, you became Christ’s, and by faith, you are to grow up in him through grace, by giving and taking. You are to give all, your heart, your will, your service, give yourself to him to obey all his requirements; and you must take all, Christ, the fullness of all blessings, to abide in your heart, to be your strength, your righteousness, your everlasting helper, to give you power to obey, and when you do all these things, your GROWING UP IN THE AWESOME POWER AND GRACE OF JESUS CHRIST is now under way.  Now you must stay focus and keep your eye on the prize.  For you are truly a child of the King, and He requires you to grow up in His grace.

 

 

Living in the Power and Reflection of your Thoughts

Living in the Power and Reflection of your Thoughts

AS A MAN THINKS IN HIS HEART SO WILL HE BE. (Proverbs 23:7

AS A MAN THINKS IN HIS HEART SO WILL HE BE. (Proverbs 23:7

Good morning my brothers and sisters, as you prepare your hearts and minds this day after a long week facing the many trials and tribulations that the world has set forth for you to deal with, let us encourage you to lift your thoughts into the spiritual reams of heaven and think on the goodness and mercies of the Lord.  Let your hearts and minds be filled with joy and praises for he has brought you through it all.

Now know that every single thing you do and say this day is about the power of your thought. For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. As one who reckons, he says to you, eat and drink, yet his heart is not with you [but is grudging the cost].  (Proverbs 23:7 AMP)

For many people, their thoughts and actions are the jailers of their own Fate.  They imprison them, being base they are also the angels of FREEDOM, they liberate, being noble.  Now what a person wishes and prays for does that person get, but what that person justly earns.  Your wishes and prayers are only gratified and answered when you are harmonizing with your thoughts and actions.

Now let us understand this very important fact, there is a world within each of us—a world of thought and feelings and power; of light and life and beauty and, although invisible, its forces are mighty.

This world that is within us is governed by our mind. When we discover this world we shall find the solution for every problem, the cause for every effect; and since the world within is subject to our control, and all laws of power and possession are also within our control.

However, our world that is without is a reflection of the world within.  What appears without is what has been found within.  In the world within may be found Infinite Wisdom, Infinite Power, and Infinite Supply of all that is necessary, waiting for enfoldment, development, and expression.  If we recognize these potentialities in the world within they will take form in the world without.

GOD IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

Greetings my dear brothers and sisters, we have journeyed a long ways together, and today is another milestone on the journey that the Lord has set us on.  He wants us to be lifted up and rejoice in our trials and tribulations knowing the old devil is trying to keep us from reaching our destination and attempting to fill our minds with worry and greed as he makes every effort to keep us away from our joy and receiving our crown of glory. But the Lord told me to tell you, not to worry, but Rejoice in Him!

Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice! (Philippians 4:4 AMP)

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. (Philippians 4:6 MSG)

Living a truly Divine Life in the Moment by the Word

Living a truly Divine Life in the Moment by the Word

THE PROCESS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

THE PROCESS (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My dear brothers and sisters, today I release my God given creed to you on how you can live in the moment and truly live a Divine Life.  Take it, read it, study it, claim it for yourself and write it upon your heart in order that you may begin the process.  Remember, today is the first day of the rest of your life.  Believe in the power of the Word, and be Free to live your Divine Life by the Power and Presence of the Word.

MY CREED

I LIVE BY DIVINE FAITH—a faith in God that is like a bridge over troubled waters.   Secure and confident, I rise in thought and act above whatever challenges may be swirling around me.  I live the fullness of life.

MY FAITH assures me, so that I accept each change for what it is:  a new beginning.  This is a time for greater strengths to be realized and expressed by me, for greater blessings to flow to and from me, for greater fulfillment to be accepted and shared by me.

MY JOY COMES FROM WITHIN! Today my life is fuller, richer, and more fun than ever, because I approach each day from the joy in my heart. The people I know and love bring me joy, but I can also choose to manifest happiness on my own. My happiness is an inside job.  As I appreciate everything in life, I am joy in expression!

MY PROSPERITY IS IN DIVINE ORDER:  I accept the abundance of God that is always flowing to me and through me.  I give and receive joyously and gratefully.  When God said that the promise land will be flowing with milk and honey He was assuring us that if our faith was strong as a mustard seed, that our world would be flowing with blessings, and filled with a life of divine potential.  Knowing this, I am bold in spirit. I am aware of my own divine potential for living a life of my dreams.

I am assured by the word of God that peace and tranquility will prevail in my life because I am a work in progress. I do all that needs to be done by me with ease and efficiency.  I balance my work, family, and social life, my schedule may be tight and my responsibilities many, but I am not concerned.  I keep my thoughts up above the busyness and remain calm and clear, knowing that divine order is established in my life, and in all of life.

MY LIVING INDIVINE ORDER ASSURES ME; that I am abundantly supplied with all I need.  Time and resources are available to me.  Strength, energy, and intelligence are mine.  Aligned with God’s law of order, I flow with life’s scheduled and unscheduled events.

Getting past a time of trouble is not about my knowing the details of how blessings will come to me.  In faith I know with certainly that I will receive them.  Living in the moment with God, I understand that change ushers in a time of newness and discovery.

I ACCEPT, I RELEASE, AND I AM FREE!  Today I am FREE, and my FREEDOM, comes from knowing that I am a son of the KING. Peace and power prevails within me. I release all things to God—all worry all pain. Both physically and spiritually, I feel His peace washing over me. I am comforted. The Spirit of God is here—within me and everywhere around me. His Spirit sustains and upholds me at all times and allows me to remain FREE.

Today my life is in DIVINE ORDER and I am living FREE, because I am a work of ART in progress.

To God be the glory, may you live in the Peace, Power, Purpose and Prosperity of the Lord our  and Savior Jesus Christ.

SCRIPTURE READING FOR TODAY IS PSALMS 1 FROM THE MESSAGE BIBLE:

How well God must like you—
you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon,
you don’t slink along Dead-End Road,
you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College.

2-3 Instead you thrill to God’s Word,
you chew on Scripture day and night.
You’re a tree replanted in Eden,
bearing fresh fruit every month,
Never dropping a leaf,
always in blossom.

4-5 You’re not at all like the wicked,
who are mere windblown dust—
Without defense in court,
unfit company for innocent people.

God charts the road you take.
The road they take is Skid Row.

Psalms 1 MSG

TIME FOR ALTER CALL:

HOW TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF ETERNITAL LIFE

What must I do to be saved? This question was first asked by a jailer at Ephesus, who witnessed an earthquake that freed Paul and Silas. Paul and Silas were the Church’s first official evangelists, who had been falsely arrested and beaten and left in his charge. The earthquake came as the climax to a midnight prison cell prayer and praise meeting and it spurred the jailer to consider the condition of his soul.  What must I do to be saved, you asked?  If you truly want to be saved, listen to what the Lord says you must do, “you should first go to God in prayer.  When praying to Him you should tell Him you are sorry for the sinful things that you have done against Him and how you want to do the right thing from now on (1 John 1:9Acts 20:21). Next you should ask Him to forgive your sins through His death payment on the cross (Colossians 2:10-14). Last, make a commitment to God that you will wholly follow His commandments and believe on Him and His Word, with the help of His Holy Spirit (John 14:15).  Congratulations, you are SAVED (John 8:32)! You have become a new person, and you will be able to live a life that is pleasing to God (2 Corinthians 5:14-17 ). Now, God will come into your heart and live with you (Revelation 3:20). This is so you can be close to Him, receive His power, and understand His Word (1 John 3:16Acts1:8John14:26).

 

Believe that with God nothing is Impossible Lesson 4

Believe that with God nothing is Impossible Lesson 4

Pastor Davis plays the role of the Priest Zacharias in the play BELIEVE

Pastor Davis plays the role of the Priest Zacharias in the play BELIEVE

The Life-Light was the real thing: Every person entering Life he brings into Light. He was in the world, the world was there through him, and yet the world didn’t even notice. He came to his own people, but they didn’t want him. But whoever did want him, who believed he was who he claimed and would do what he said, He made to be their true selves, their child-of-God selves. These are the God-begotten, not blood-begotten, not flesh-begotten, not sex-begotten.

John 1:12-13 MSG

My brothers and sisters, today I encourage you as you prepare yourselves to go into the world and face the most dangerous enemy of all times, that you girdle your entire body and mind up with a mustard seed of faith; and when you do, look the enemy in the eye and tell him,“I BELIEVE TH AT WITH GOD NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE,”  and this moment of trials and tribulations, they to shall pass.  Because I am living in the light and the light is shinning in me and through me.  “I BELIEVE!”

Faith and doubt cannot live in the same house, one are the other is going to rule.  Which do you want to rule over your life?  The cold hard choice we make concerning these two very important people in our lives will determine our destiny.  We cannot serve two masters that on this day, which we are going to serve, and then begin to live our lives accordingly?

Now my brothers and sisters I want you to listen and understand this very important story of Zacharias the Priest and how God dealt with him when he doubted the word of God.  You see both Zacharias and his wife were up in age when the angel of the Lord approached him and told him that he and his wife were going to have a baby. And Zacharias expressed all the pent-up doubt in his heart.

But the angel reassured him, “Don’t fear, Zachariah. Your prayer has been heard. Elizabeth, your wife, will bear a son by you. You are to name him John. You’re going to leap like a gazelle for joy, and not only you—many will delight in his birth. He’ll achieve great stature with God.

 “He’ll drink neither wine nor beer. He’ll be filled with the Holy Spirit from the moment he leaves his mother’s womb. He will turn many sons and daughters of Israel back to their God. He will herald God’s arrival in the style and strength of Elijah, soften the hearts of parents to children, and kindle devout understanding among hardened skeptics—he’ll get the people ready for God.”

Zachariah said to the angel, “Do you expect me to believe this? I’m an old man and my wife is an old woman.”

This is the exact same way that Abraham expressed himself to God when God told him that he was going to have a son. You see my brothers and sister, Zachariah thinking is the way we think by being in the world. Our thoughts like his not being centered in the Spirit of the Lord and what the Lord can do when we get out of the way and let God have His way.

The angel of the Lord continued by saying, “I am Gabriel, the sentinel of God, sent especially to bring you this glad news. But because you won’t believe me, you’ll be unable to say a word until the day of your son’s birth. Every word I’ve spoken to you will come true on time—God’s time.” (Luke 1:13-20 MSG.

You see my brothers and sisters, because Zacharias had doubted, he would lose the power of speech until the child was born.  Whenever a believer entertains doubts concerning God’s word, he loses his testimony and his song.  Unbelief of the lips, and they remain sealed until faith returns and bursts forth in praise and witness.

Gabriel the angel of the Lord continue to pursue the mission which God had dispatched him on and entered into the space of Mary whom God had blessed and highly favored, and this is what he spoke to her, he begin by saying, “and did you know that your cousin Elizabeth conceived a son, old as she is? Everyone called her barren, and here she is six months pregnant! Nothing, you see, is impossible with God.”

And Mary said,

Yes, I see it all now:
I’m the Lord’s maid, ready to serve.
Let it be with me36
just as you say.

Then the angel left her. (Luke 1:37-38 MSG)

My brothers and sisters “BELIEVE” that is the lesson the Lord wants us to learn. Believe that with God all things are possible. Stop living your life in doubt, allowing your faith to waiver and  become like the motions of the oceans, always going back and forth.  When you learn to believe, a whole new world of possibilities will open unto you.  “BELIEVE, BELIEVE” my brothers and sisters and you too will receive the favor of the Lord.

 

SATURDAY/ SUNDAY MORNING DEVOTIONAL SERVICE OF PRAYER AND PRAISE 72 IN GOD I TRUST

SATURDAY/ SUNDAY MORNING DEVOTIONAL SERVICE OF PRAYER AND PRAISE 72 IN GOD I TRUST

My Brothers and Sisters, we enter into the presence of the Lord to Worship Him and Serve Him.  Sometimes our hearts are troubled and we find it difficult to understand why we are having to face down our enemies day in and day out, week end and week out.  The stress upon our daily lives seems to be beating us down and sometimes we feel like we want to just give up and let the enemy have his way. But I tell you for a believer, this should never be an option.  You should always be able to find enough strength within your FAITH to lift up your heads towards heaven and say, “IN GOD I TRUST!”

David faced a similar situation from his own countrymen, and he turned to the Lord in prayer for God’s gracious help in view of the constant harassment of his pursuers, and this is David’s prayer:

LET US PRAY THIS PRAYER WITH DAVID THIS MORNING:

Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;
all day long an attacker oppresses me;
my enemies trample on me all day long,
for many attack me proudly.
When I am afraid,
I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?

All day long they injure my cause;

all their thoughts are against me for evil.
They stir up strife, they lurk;
they watch my steps,
as they have waited for my life. AMEN! (Psalm 56:1-6 ESV)

LIFT THE LORD UP IN HIGH PRAISES:

Now put your hands together and open your mouth wide and give the Lord a big shout out of hallelujah praises. When prayer and praises go up, faith breaks out all over the place.  David said, whenever I am afraid, “I will trust in you Lord.”  This cheerful courage is based on the character of God and on the faithfulness of His promises.  He is more powerful than all our foes combined, and He has promised to protect us from harm.  Nothing can penetrate the protective hedge which He sets up around us except by His permissive will.  This is why we can trust in God without a fear.

My Brothers and Sisters let us be bold in our praises before the Lord, for He is truly worthy.  What can mere man do to me, I ask you?  If I reason, I might answer, “Plenty.”  Man can persecute, injure, maim, shoot, and even kill me.  But the fact is that the child of God which I am, and you are, is immortal until his work is done.  Also we should understand David’s fearlessness in the light of our Savior’s words.

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.  But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.  (Matthew 10:28)

My Brothers and Sisters let this be a day of remembrances that the Lord is good all the time, and He will never fail you nor forsake you, therefore, when your enemies come upon you to do harm to you, STAND YOUR GROUND and say out loud, “IN GOD I TRUST!”

This concludes our SATURDAY/ SUNDAY MORNING DEVOTIONAL SERVICE OF PRAYER AND PRAISE 72 IN GOD I TRUST!

We will return in a few hours to continue our Sunday portion of our PRAYER, PRAISE AND WORSHIP SERVICE 72 titles: STIR UP YOUR GIFT!

Until we meet in our next session, may God bless each of you ABUNDANTLY!

EXPERIENCING THE FREEDOM OF ETERNAL LIFE (BY PASTOR DAVIS)

EXPERIENCING THE FREEDOM OF ETERNAL LIFE (Photo of Pastor Davis by Pastor Davis)

With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.

God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn’t deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that.

The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it. And now what the law code asked for but we couldn’t deliver is accomplished as we, instead of redoubling our own efforts, simply embrace what the Spirit is doing in us.

Those who think they can do it on their own end up obsessed with measuring their own moral muscle but never get around to exercising it in real life. Those who trust God’s action in them find that God’s Spirit is in them—living and breathing God! Obsession with self in these matters is a dead end; attention to God leads us out into the open, into a spacious, free life. Focusing on the self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God, ends up thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what he is doing. And God isn’t pleased at being ignored.

But if God himself has taken up residence in your life, you can hardly be thinking more of yourself than of him. Anyone, of course, who has not welcomed this invisible but clearly present God, the Spirit of Christ, won’t know what we’re talking about. But for you who welcome him, in whom he dwells—even though you still experience all the limitations of sin—you yourself experience life on God’s terms. It stands to reason, doesn’t it, that if the alive-and-present God who raised Jesus from the dead moves into your life, he’ll do the same thing in you that he did in Jesus, bringing you alive to himself? When God lives and breathes in you (and he does, as surely as he did in Jesus), you are delivered from that dead life. With his Spirit living in you, your body will be as alive as Christ’s!

Jesus teaches us to have Empathy for our Brethren

Do you ever experience Empathy for your Brethren?

OUR CAPACITY FOR EMPATHY IS A RESOURCE OF LIMITLESS POTENTIAL

Here is how the dictionary defines the word EMPATHY.  It says empathy is defined as the identification with and understanding of another’s situation as in; if I put myself in your shoes, I can understand how angry you must be about not getting that promotion.  Empathy is distinguished from sympathy which is defined as the ability to share the feelings of another as in I am so sorry about the death of your co-worker.

My Bishop, whom I consider a true Prophet a man of much knowledge and wisdom once made the wise observation, and he said to me, “That a person wrapped up in his or her own self, makes a very small package.  Such a person is a self-centered individual.  The dimensions of their life are dwarfed and limited.”

This was the situation that Jesus found himself in when he attended a dinner party in his honor at the home of Simon.  Jesus teaches us a real down to earth lesson when a sinful woman enters into his presents; now listen to how Jesus handles the situation:

One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee‘s house and reclined at the table. And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man was a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner.” And Jesus answering said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” And he answered, “Say it, Teacher.”

“A certain moneylender had two debtors. One owed five-hundred denarius, and the other fifty. When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?” Simon answered, “The one, I suppose, for whom he cancelled the larger debt.” And he said to him, “You have judged rightly.” Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” Then those who were at table with him began to say among themselves, “Who is this, who even forgives sins?”  And he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”  (Luke 7:36-50 ESV)

Now let us example some of the lessons Jesus taught us in this story:

Through empathy a person learns not to judge others in terms of his or her own personal interests, likes and dislikes, but in terms of what life means to them.

Through the power of a person’s creative imagination, empathy enables a person to project themselves into the consciousness of others that they may know how the other person may think and how they feel.  Sympathy merely mirrors another person’s trouble; empathy discovers the causes of the trouble with the searchlight of insight.

Through empathy a person may closely identify themselves with anyone he or she may wish to understand.  They may seek inspiration from the gifted, the victorious, the happy.  They may develop a deep comprehension of the problems of the blind, the crippled, the sorrowing and the defeated.

Empathy helps to create harmony in the home.  Family members may play the roles of each other.  For instance, the father can play the part of the son and the son the part of the father, that each may learn to know and appreciate the feelings of the other.

Practicing the art of empathy will enlarge a person’s life.  It will broaden their humanity, expand their understanding and inspire tolerance and forbearance, compassion and forgiveness.

Finally, all of you have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.  (1 Peter3:8 ESV)  Now my brothers and sisters may the grace of the Lord be with you as you show empathy for your brethren.

MONDAY’S WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].  (Philippians 4:13 AMP)

 

 

My dear brothers and sisters, it is my hope and prayer that the Word for this day and week has encouraged you in some small way not to allow the devil to steal your joy and keep you from reaching your destination which the Lord has determined for you.  Make this a day of sharing and caring and being kind by showing that brotherly love and affection towards one another, always with a song and a prayer in your heart.  Thank you for being a part of this ministry and sharing the word of God with those who have ears to hear and a open mind to receive.  May the Lord our God bless you abundantly this week as you walk out your purpose.

You are perfect right now

YOU ARE PERFECT RIGHT NOW

YOU ARE CALLED BY THE WORD OF GOD

YOU ARE CALLED BY THE WORD OF GOD

By Pastor Davis M. Byars, Jr.

You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:48 ESV)

The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master.  (Luke 6:40 KJV)

You are perfect right now, because you are right where you are suppose to be.  If you were not, God would have placed you in a different place and a higher level of consciousness for this moment and time.  Therefore, you are who you are, where you are right this very moment because of your own individual thoughts.

My brothers and sisters, I present this lesson to you today that you may be fully equipped by the grace of God, filled with the Holy Spirit and His wisdom and knowledge will empower you to understand that “YOU ARE TRULY PERFECT RIGHT NOW!”  I do however; recognize that everyone that reads this message will not understand it and some of you will even criticize me for writing it.  But I say to you what the bible says, and that is “GET UNDERSTANDING!”  Know the truth and the truth will set you FREE.

I am constantly reminded by people that nobody is perfect. When I ask them to explain their thoughts, they mostly draw a blank and then say that only God is perfect. To here Christians make such a broad statement only shows ignorant to the word of God because the scripture is full of reference of the perfect individual.  The word of God says, “You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”  (Matthew 5:48 ESV)

Every time I hear someone say these words, “But nobody is perfect!” I cringe.  Why?  Because most of the time, they are looking at the imperfect lives of others and using the weaknesses of others to excuse some sin or issue in their own life.  We need to stop comparing ourselves to one another, and begin to compare ourselves to the one that we are to be conformed to His image…that is Jesus Christ… who set an example of what He wants to see in us.

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. (Romans 8:29 NIV)

Saying that nobody is perfect puts a serious damper on God’s ability to transform us. “Be ye therefore transformed by the renewing of your mind. (Romans 12:2)  When we deny what God can do, it turns a positive (our ability to become perfect) into a negative (we’ll never be perfect).

You, therefore, must be perfect [growing into complete maturity of godliness in mind and character, [reached the proper height of virtue and integrity], as your heavenly Father is perfect.  (Matthew 5:48 AMP)

 

PERFECT INDIVIDUALS IN THE BIBLE

“Gen 6:9 — Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. 22Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.”

Job 1:8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?” The Word of God says that Job has not committed sin. “Job1:22 In all this Job sinned not,—“

Gen 17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect”.Abraham fulfilled what God has required of him and received the testimony even from Jesus Christ. “John 8:39They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.”

2 King 20:3 I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight.” King Hezekiah had asked God to extend his life when he was sick and God favored him and gave him and additional 15 years.

We see in the book of Philippians that the Apostle Paul was speaking to those who were already perfect in the Church of Philippians. This proves that there were perfect people in the Church. “Phil 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in anything ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.” The Apostle rebukes the Corinthian Church for its sins. However, in the middle of the rebuke, he recognizes that there are perfect people in the Church and speaks in spiritual wisdom to those perfect ones. “1 Cor 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among themthat are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world.”

 

THE CHURCH DOCTRINE

It is truly unfortunately that too many of our Churches teach a false doctrine to the Children of God which allows them to think wrongly about Becoming that perfect individual.  They teach an evasive false doctrine saying that it is impossible for man to become perfect.  How can that possibly be when Jesus teaches and leads by example that nothing is impossible?  The Word of God teaches us that all things are possible to those who believe.  This leads the members to repeat such a false doctrine to others and the teaching is carried on by the members as they spread this false doctrine deep into the world.  However, God’s purpose for the Church is to perfect believers even to the measure of the perfection of Jesus Christ.

Now let’s see what the word of God has to say concerning the Church’s teaching on this matter as we open the book of Ephesians 4:11-14 AMP)  11 And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers.

12 His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ’s body (the church),

13 [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [[a]full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.

14 So then, we may no longer be children, tossed [like ships] to and fro between chance gusts of teaching and wavering with every changing wind of doctrine, [the prey of] the cunning and cleverness of [b]unscrupulous men, [gamblers engaged] in every shifting form of trickery in inventing errors to mislead.

THE MINISTRY OF TEACHING

In the Ministry of Teaching, Jesus appointed the apostles to be special massagers to present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.  Therefore, when we look in the book of Colossians 1:28-29 AMP)  28 Him we preach and proclaim, warning and admonishing everyone and instructing everyone in all wisdom ([a]comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God), that we may present every person mature (full-grown, fully initiated, complete, and perfect) in Christ (the Anointed One).

29 For this I labor [[b]unto weariness], striving with all the [c]superhuman energy which He so mightily enkindles and works within me.

THE VINE AND THE BRANCH

The vine and the branch connects you to that real perfection in Christ Jesus, by abiding in him you will receive the same power as the sap from the vine to become powerful and produce an abundant harvest, because the bible says it this way, “I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned.

If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in youand continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.

When you bear (produce) much fruit, My Father is honored and glorified, and you show and prove yourselves to be true followers of Mine.  (John 15:5-8 AMP)

 

LIVING THE PERFECT LIFE

THE UNIVERSE OPERATES IN PERFECT HARMONY

The universe is always operating in perfection and harmony. When we align ourselves with it, we will experience the same perfection and harmony for ourselves. That is how living the perfect life is possible. It is an illusion that the world tries to pull over our eyes about what the perfect life is about and how it is supposed to look. The truth is that the perfect life for every individual is different and unique according to the special purpose and life path that the universe has for them. All they have to do is to go for it.

When you are connected with your true self, you know what is it you are being guided to do and you will be doing it. You will know that it is the best thing in the world for you to be doing in that moment and therefore you are perfectly satisfied about doing it. You are totally presence to the moment and are truly living life in the now. You are following the spirit always. You are connected to the essence of who you really are which is the power and the presence of God that is expressing itself through you.

You never have to worry about whether you can be what you want to be, do what you want to do or have what you want to have. Because whatever that you are meant to be, do or have has already been chosen by the larger you as the universe for the smaller you that is living in this world. What you are meant to be, do and have is the best choice that you could ever experience because it is that which fully satisfies the innermost desires of your heart. Your deepest heart desires are also given by the universe.

WHERE YOU ARE THIS MOMENT IS PERFECT

Godliness with contentment is great gain.

A devout life does bring wealth, but it’s the rich simplicity of being yourself before God. Since we entered the world penniless and will leave it penniless, if we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that’s enough.  (1Timothy 6:6 MSG)

Those who know they have enough are truly wealthy. What you have and what you are getting now is enough. Where you are is perfect because it is exactly where you need to be. Perfection is not something that you have to wait for until one day when it comes. Perfection exists in every moment. It is because every step of the way is part of the process. The process does not exist without the steps. Every step is perfection itself and when you are in it, you are perfect.

The universe operates all things in such perfect precision and harmony that you will only be presented with a situation at the right time and when you are ready for it. Everything occurs as part of the universal plan. You will always be provided with the resources you need in the moment, not before or after. When you know the divine power that is always taking care of you, and have the awareness of all things happening in DIVINE ORDER and DIVINE TIMING, you will be perfectly contented in every moment.

Yes, that is correct, perfectly contented in every moment.  You don’t have to try and allow this moment, for this moment is already allowed to be exactly as it is.  You don’t even have to except this moment, for this moment has already been accepted.  Acceptance is not something that you “do” it’s what you are.

Experiencing Unity Through Humility

He took on the status of a Slave

 If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.  (Philippians 2:1-4 Msg)

 

 

Now my Brothers and Sisters, may the love of Christ Jesus reside in each of you this day and throughout the rest of your lives as you learn to share and Experience Unity Through Humility.  I leave you with my peace and the peace of the Lord. “BE BLESSED”

How to experience Humility as a way of Life

THE TOWER OF STRENGTH (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, do you really understand who you are when you look into the mirror and see that face looking back at you?  Do you ever ask the question, Oh God, who am I?  What I want you to understand in this lesson and the many lessons we teach here is How Humility works to bring you into the knowledge and power of  just who you are, who God is, and who you are in God.  Re-read and comprehend this last statement because it holds more power than an atom bomb.

The reward for HUMILITY and fear of the LORD is RICHES and HONOR and LIFE. (Proverbs 22:4 ESV) Now I ask you, how many of you do not want to experience these blessings in your life. God is teaching us how to live as that new person in this season and experience a true abundant lifestyle, BY LEARNING HOW TO EXPERIENCE HUMILITY AS A WAY OF LIFE!

In this, we are given a choice, we can befriend God are we can befriend the world. Some of us may say that we will befriend both God and the world, but in practice, we can only choose one way. The more we give ourselves to the world, the stronger will be our allegiance to the world. The more we give ourselves to God, the stronger will be our bond with him. This is what Jesus says, “Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be. (Matthew 6:21)

We have to remember, that we can find strength in the Lord, to live a humble lifestyle and receive all the lords abundant BLESSINGS. Although the world may consider us weak, when we show HUMILITY, this is because the world wants us to be filled with pride, and God sets himself against the proud, because pride makes us self-centered and leads us to conclude that we deserve all we can see, touch, or imagine. It creates greedy appetites far more than we need. Pride can subtly cause us to no longer see our sins or our need for forgiveness.

But remember this one great truth, HUMILITY opens the way for God’s grace to flow into our lives; thus, God shows favor to the HUMBLE.

Do not get so caught up in the ways of the world and the people that surrounds you, that you lose sight of who you are, who God is, who you are in God, that your heart becomes so hearten that you cannot HUMBLE yourselves in the presence of the Lord.

Understand this fact, “HUMILITY is not weakness; instead, it is the only place that believers gain courage to face all their temptations and sins with God’s strength.” As God gives us more grace, we realize that this world’s seductive attractions are only cheap substitutes for what God has to offer. It is our choice we can HUMBLE ourselves and receive God’s grace, or we can continue in our pride and self-sufficiency and experience his anger.

Now let me conclude this by leaving you with these two questions; (1). How do we, so prone to pride at the very moment when we think we might be approaching humility, discover true humility? (2). How do we become the kind of humble people who find the overflowing grace that God promises?

Well, listen to how Scripture teaches us to do it; “Let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.” (James 4:7-10 MSG)

May the grace of God fill your lives with His overflowing blessings, and bring you much joy and peace now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!

GOD IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

GOD IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD (PHOTO BY PASTOR DAVIS)

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, this day sets forth for each of us another day of possibilities.  Choose ye this day how you shall live and enjoy all that has been set before you as you journey through this moment and time.  Hold onto God’s unchanging hands, because He is the light of the world and in Him, there is no darkness.

Now open your hearts and minds and allow the WORD to fill you with joy and peace, for this is your day to believe in the possibilities of what is!

 

 

The Word was first,
the Word present to God,
God present to the Word.
The Word was God,
in readiness for God from day one.

3-5 Everything was created through him;
nothing—not one thing!—
came into being without him.
What came into existence was Life,
and the Life was Light to live by.
The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness;
the darkness couldn’t put it out.

6-8 There once was a man, his name John, sent by God to point out the way to the Life-Light. He came to show everyone where to look, who to believe in. John was not himself the Light; he was there to show the way to the Light.

9-13 The Life-Light was the real thing:
Every person entering Life
he brings into Light.
He was in the world,
the world was there through him,
and yet the world didn’t even notice.
He came to his own people,
but they didn’t want him.
But whoever did want him,
who believed he was who he claimed
and would do what he said,
He made to be their true selves,
their child-of-God selves.
These are the God-begotten,
not blood-begotten,
not flesh-begotten,
not sex-begotten.

14 The Word became flesh and blood,
and moved into the neighborhood.
We saw the glory with our own eyes,
the one-of-a-kind glory,
like Father, like Son,
Generous inside and out,
true from start to finish.  (John 1:1-14 MSG)

Be strong and be of good courage part 2

Be strong and be of good courage part 2

WEDNESDAY INSPIRATIONAL AND MOTIVATIONAL SERVICES 14

Good Morning My Brothers and Sisters, today we greet you in the name and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  For it is another day that He has blessed us to share his word with you for the uplifting and building of his kingdom.  For the old devil is moving through this land and the minds of the Children of God making every effort to tear down and destroy their lives.  But the Lord has a word for you to enable you to with stand the trials and tribulations that will come upon you this day.

Now click on the video below as Pastor Davis presents to you a word from God to encourage and strengthen you for your journey this day.

 

 

Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.  (Deuteronomy 31:6 AMP)

Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9 AMP)

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:7 AMP)

May the peace and blessings of the Lord be with you now and always as you walk out your purpose doing the will of the Lord in Jesus name.

 

LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH MEETS REALITY PART 4

LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH MEETS REALITY PART 4

YOU CAN BECOME PERFECT THROUGH SUFFERING

Know the truth and the truth will set you free

Know the truth and the truth will set you free

You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Matthew 5:48 ESV)

When truth meets reality you will become perfect, by denying self and allowing the spirit of Jesus Christ to come alive and dwell within you.  Know the truth and the truth will set you free. The time is now to be released from the chains of bondage in order that this moment will become perfect in your brand new life in Christ.  In the book of John, the bible says if you would live in me I will live in you and you will bare much fruit.  In other words, you will be changed, you will become new, having being transformed from the inside out and you are now made perfect in Jesus Christ through your suffering for his sake.

Jesus Christ was God and had equal status with God the Most High. But when he became a man, with no godly power attributes, he had to endure suffering in order to become perfect. “Heb 5:8-9 though he was a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;”

We are called to obey him by following his steps for the heavenly journey. In this we will have to endure sufferings. But through these sufferings, God will make us perfect. So, we must enter in through the tight gate to endure suffering to become perfect. If we run away from it, we cannot become perfect.

The grace of God is taught as a good gesture of God, which is given to most Christians. This grace will accept a sinning person into heaven. But in truth, grace is the power and presence of God, which is given to those who are humble. This grace will strive with them, endure sufferings and will make them perfect.

“1 Pet 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.”

For you have been granted [the privilege] for Christ’s sake not only to believe in (adhere to, rely on, and trust in) Him, but also to suffer in His behalf. (Philippians 1:29 AMP)  But when you have obeyed him, suffered through the agony, temptations, trials and tribulations in this life on his behalf, he will strengthen you, and enable you to walk in the path way as he recreate within you a brand new spirit and make you perfect.

Now listen to what he says about you walking through the pathway of righteousness.  “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (Matthew 5:11-12)

Therefore, let us understand that when TRUTH MEETS REALITY, we are justified (acquitted, declared righteous, and given a right standing with God) through faith, let us [grasp the fact that we] have [the peace of reconciliation to hold and to enjoy] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).

 Through Him also we have [our] access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we [firmly and safely] stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God.

Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance.

And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character (approved faith and tried integrity). And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] [e]joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation.

Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us. (Romans 5:1-5 AMP)

Now be encouraged My Brothers and Sisters and know that your living for Christ Jesus is not in vain because Truth will meet Reality when you let go of self and live in Him, live for Him and He will live in you and your results will be Perfect.

Good Morning my Brothers and Sisters, yes it is Monday and the beginning of our brand new week living and working in the physical world where we discover the many difficulties of this life when Truth meets Reality.  We encourage you to Be Strong, Be Courageous, stay focus and keep your eye on the prize of Jesus Christ.  For He never assigns you a task that he does not first empowers you with all the necessary tools to carry it out and complete it with time to spare.

He has made you perfect for this moment in time, your job is to be an obedient servant and walk out your assigned purpose doing His Will as you come face to face in the space and time where, “Truth meets Reality!”

This week we will be studying Romans 12:1-2, learning how we can live for Christ when Truth meets Reality.  The Bible tells us to know the Truth and the Truth will set us Free.  How we get to that truth will be the basics of our teaching this week.  Here is what Romans says, Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.  This is the reality of the truth we must come to know if we are to live for Christ.

Now let me share this truth with you as we begin this week in the newness of the Holy Spirit working through us.  There is but one religion, and that religion is the religion of Truth.  There is also but one error, and that error is of self.  Sometimes we allow self to get in the way of Truth.  Where self is, we will not find Truth, where Truth is self is not.  Therefore, let us discover Truth within ourselves about ourselves and move self out of the way and learn to live each day for Christ.  Jesus declared that if any man wishes to be His Disciple, he must deny himself daily.

Finally, let us learn that self is the denial of Truth.  Truth is the denial of self.  As you let self die, you will be reborn in Truth.  As you cling to self, truth will be hidden from you.  Now know this,  “LIVING FOR CHRIST TRUTH WILL MEET REALITY!
