(1) Giving Thanks

“God has two dwellings; one in heaven, and the other in a meek and thankful heart” (Izaac Walton)

“It’s not what we say about our blessings, but the way we use them, that is the measure of our thanksgiving”

************

You are somebody because Somebody (Christ) lives in you!

Thank God for what you have.

Trust God for all you need.

(2) Hearing the call of God means going into action with the assurance of His presence and His power and He will equip you for the task.  Ezekiel the prophet heard the call of God.

When God call us to do difficult task for Him like He did with Ezekiel, He will give us the courage to accomplish the task.

                                                    *************

My life may not be going the way I planned it, but it is going exactly the way God planned it.

Mary’s Song was a song of praise, purpose and promise. If God could work through an unwed mother, to fulfil His purposes, then He can certainly work through each one of us if we follow the example of Jesus and humble ourselves.

“Salvation is not a human invention, but a divine visitation. It is not something we achieve by going to God, but something God has done by coming to us in Jesus Christ” Philip Ryken. the message of Christmas is hope because Jesus came.

The wonder of Christmas begins in the presence of Christ. The wonder of Christmas produces the worship of God. The wonder of Christmas proclaims the message of peace to mankind.  “Christmas began in the heart of God. It is complete only when it reaches the heart of man.”

Whenever God sets about to do a new thing, He always sets His people praying.” J. Edwin Orr
We should pray in times of distress, in times of sickness. God answers prayer. It is in God’s power to heal according to His will. “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5:16               God answers prayer. The question is are you asking?

“It is easy to look at ourselves and see ourselves as what we are now.  God looks at us and sees what we can become.”  Sarah Ann Neil.

“You change your life by changing your heart.” Max Lucado

The gospel of grace gives us true identity.

Moses had big plans, broken dreams and a bruised spirit but God wasn’t finished with him yet! “The safest place in all the world is in the will of God.” Warren Wiersbe

The true church remains focused on the Lord Jesus Christ–the Head of the Church. He is supreme in all things. He is Lord of the Church.


Pentecost–The Day that Changed the Church

Bethlehem means God with us – Calvary means God for us – Pentecost means God in us.

2 Tim 1:7 “For the Spirit that God has given us does not make us timid, instead His Spirit fills us with power, love and self-control.”

It is not how can I have more of the Spirit but how can the Spirit have more of me.  Holy Spirit fill me today, I pray.

The hillside is empty.  the cross is empty.  The tomb is empty.  One day Jesus will come again.  That’s a certainty.  I’m forgiven because Jesus says I am.  I will worship because Jesus deserves my love.
