AN IN MESSAGE FOR TODAY

In a restless world traumatised by the Evil One and all kinds of disturbing forces, do not be in or live in this condition. You are to know the rest of God at all times so that nothing alarms or reduces you to fear and impotence. God’s Word to you is this today: “There is a rest that remains for the people of God”. Learn to receive and live in a spirit of calm, quietness and confidence so you will always be in charge of life.

IMITATION OF CHRIST – Thomas A. Kempis

Whoso knoweth himself, is lowly in his own eyes, and delighteth not in the praises of men.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY 

Thought for the Day follows an instructive theme for everyday of the Week. A good word in Christian thought and experience is ‘joy’ and this refers primarily to the knowledge and understanding that God seeks to impart to those who have a daily dynamic accord with Him. Those who really know and relate to God believe in His supreme power, that He can do anything. God the Father desires that His offspring through Christ will know how to perform in similar fashion.

JOY THAT COMES THROUGH THE BLESSEDNESS OF FORGIVENESS – Psalm 32

Thought for the Day follows an instructive theme for everyday of the Week. A good word in Christian thought and experience is ‘joy’ and this refers primarily to the knowledge and understanding that God seeks to impart to those who have a daily dynamic accord with Him. Those who really know and relate to God believe in His supreme power, that He can do anything. God the Father desires that His offspring through Christ will know how to perform in similar fashion.

When you have received direct from the LORD total forgiveness regarding sin, the result is one of gladness. There is no prospect of having to face divine judgment and retribution. You can be both grateful and glad that God has been willing and made it possible for you to know a full pardon and cleansing so making a relationship with Him a great reality. There is not simply relief, there is a delight you are reconciled with Him and you can now taste the pleasure of acceptance and fellowship.

David declared in Psalm 32: 1, 2 this truth. He said: “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity”. He regrettably had sinned enormously and knew what it was to experience untold conviction, sorrow and remorse and was very glad and appreciative of the LORD in His readiness to bestow forgiveness. What relief and rejoicing was his lot when the evil had been effectively dealt with!

 

The Cross of Christ is where God dealt with the great sin question for all men. In one glorious act, Jesus became the sin-offering and paid the price for our transgressions. He makes it possible for God to both cleanse and forgive sin and restore you into accord with Himself. When this is known, there is the expressiveness of true joy. Do you rejoice in the knowledge that all your sins have been effectively cancelled out and now you can enjoy God in your daily living?

DAILY MEDITATIONS

POWERFUL TIMES – Acts 4

This was a wonderful phase in the history of the Christian church as it manifested itself ina dynamic fashion. The two leaders, Peter and John, did not sense any fear on or inhibition as they stood before the religious opposition to give a bold and powerful witness to Christ. They made their opponents feel as if they were in the dock and on trial as a true testimony to Christ was given. The healed man stood as a powerful  witness to the fact that Christ was alive  and still in business.

As they congregated with the Christian community in prayer therewas to be powerful praying as they presented the immediate issue to the Lord. The response from heaven was explosive! It states: “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spake the Word of God with boldness”.

These present days should be no less powerful in and for God in the body of Christendom. There should be no wilting under the challenge of the times because the same spiritual means are available and accessible. The Holy Spirit and the Word of God are all conquering factors to be possessed to make each Christian and fellowship a force to be reckoned with. Let your life and witness be blessed and backed up with these divine resources and so become a potent testimony to Christ.
