IN MESSAGE FOR TODAY

There is still much that is latent in you that has been placed by the LORD waiting to be revealed, developed and brought forth to achieve great things. He did not, make any mistake when He naturally created and renewed you in Christ. He is desirous that in the course of life, work and ministry you realize your full potential. Much lies in the realm of one simple acorn; yes the possibility of a forest! And you are of more worth than an acorn. Even in this present life there is so much that He seeks to bring forth for His glory. As you live in His Word and vice-versa, His Word lives in you, and as you are possessed by His Holy Spirit, the possibilities still are there awaiting release. Let today be a sensing that the best is yet to be and let it begin to break forth, NOW!

WISE SAYINGS

“The end of the matter is better than its beginning and patience is better than pride. Do not be quickly reproved in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools” – Ecclesiastes 7:8, 9 NIV Pride leads to the undoing of a person: patience to their making. Likewise with anger. Be wise and be humble!

IN ADDITION

CHRISTLIKENESS

Peter in his message to early Christians reveals that they have been blessed: “According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue.” You are called to be like Christ and manifest  His quality characteristics in an ever-increasing capacity. These are the things to added with all diligence – vv4,5.

1/. The basic quality faith  – v5 “add to your faith.” You have been saved by faith, kept by faith, grow by faith . . . . . and so on. Let your faith be released through. God’s Word and Spirit and you will know and grow increasingly like Christ. As Christ was and is so you can be. Commence your growth from a positive standpoint. Each day live by faith and so move into addition and multiplication. Be a person of faith. The first book I read was ‘Ever Increasing Faith’ by Smith Wigglesworth. It serves to initiate and motivate and show what you can be and do.

DAILY MEDITATIONS`

ULTIMATE ACCOUNTABILITY – Romans 14

In the schedule of the Lord, for the believer, there is to be a moment of ultimate accountability before the Lord. The sinner is to appear before Him to be judged of his sins but the saint and son of God is to stand before Him to be judged of His life and service within His kingdom. It is important therefore that great care is taken on performance in areas within the family of God and in work enterprise. There has to be constant, wise judgment on one’s one behaviour and worthy spiritual principles and faith must govern the whole of one’s conduct.

Instead of spending time and thought judging others, a watchful eye must be maintained on one’s self and all that is done will bear the ultimate scrutiny and approbation of the Lord. Great grace and toleration must be exercised especially to weaker brothers and sisters but a firm and wholesome commitment must be shown on the personal front. Mention is made as what the kingdom of God is really about in v17 – “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.” It is these things that stand the Lord’s acceptance and approval.

This sense of divine accountability is to be a guiding factor within the outworking of Christian life and experience. It is not to be treated as a fearful threat but a pure motive in achieving the best in terms of relationship and service. On that day, the Lord desires to be pleased with each one and reward accordingly and so it is purposed to be a wholesome incentive to great and noble living. The Lord wills to attest your life before all at that coming hour, so let today’s events and experiences, with others and life, be outworked with this in view.
