“CHOSEN SERIES” #6 You are Completely Favored by God

You have been chosen to be completely favored and receive the gift of God’s grace. But to enjoy God’s favor,  you have to accept His gift of redeeming grace. Hebrews 10: 35 So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. 36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.                              Hebrews 11 :1 Now faith is…

Reaching People For Christ

Matthew 5:13-14 “13 You are the salt of the earth……  14 You are the light of the world..…  “ What you say and do can  affect your circle of influence. Like a pebble thrown into a pond, the ripple effects spread out all around. Your words, your actions are like the ripple effects. If you have received God’s amazing grace, you would want to share this to everyone, as much as you can.   .  

You Are God’s Co-Worker!

“Whatever you do, work at it with your whole being, for the Lord and not for men,” Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31) Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord Romans 12:11

The Great Power of Words

Your words do : praise and magnify; build up or tear down; comfort and console; encourage, correct, instruct. Words are powerful. Luke 6:45 [Amp version] The good man produces what is good and honorable and moral out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart; …   .  for his mouth speaks from the overflow of his heart. Job 16:5 [Amp version] “[But instead] I could strengthen and encourage you with [the words of] my mouth, And the consolation and solace of my lips would soothe your suffering and lessen your anguish. Ephesians 6:19 [Amp version] And pray for me, that words may be given to me when I open my mouth, to proclaim boldly the mystery of the good news [of salvation],

Generous Great “GIVING”

This is what “generous giving” really means :     “John 3:16 ” For God So Loved … that He GAVE  His Only begotten Son…” As the saying goes you cannot love with giving.   11You will be enriched in every way to be generous on every occasion, and your giving through us will produce thanksgiving to God. 12For this ministry of service is not only supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanksgiving to God.… (2 Cor. 9:11-12) Romans 12:8 if it is encouraging, let…

Earnest Sowing ensures Fruitful Harvest

2018 is Going to Be Great: Obedience Shows Others Who You Love

New Year’s Resolutions may be hard to keep, but pleasing God is one goal that we can all do. Romans 5:8 tells us that we please the Lord simply by being His children, and 1 John 5:1-3 says that we obey God because He is our loving Father. Obedience even enriches our relationship with the Lord and improves our lives, but what else does obedience do? John 14:30-31 tells us that through his obedience to the Father, Jesus revealed to…
