IN MESSAGE

You do not have to ape somebody else in their manners and abilities to become like them. You may learn from other people but you are not become as them. The LORD made you to be you with all your individuality, potentiality and energy, to be released by Him under His inspiration and guidance. Your fulfilment is found in knowing His intimate fellowship and the constant input of His revelation, presence and power and so be enabled to live a positive and successful life. There will never be any need to be jealous of others because you will be utterly satisfied in the way the Lord is making and using you to utmost profit and pleasure. Remember, you are being prepared for the manifestation of His eternal kingdom and it is vital that you are wholly ready for it. The promotion will soon be!

WISE SAYINGS

“Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray . . . .” – James 5:13

The best antidotes to trials and problems is prayer, down on your knees and talk to Him who has all the perfect and absolute answers. And He gives grace, patience, faith and other qualities in the meantime.

IN ADDITION SPRITUAL GIFTEDNESS

In and through Christ, God the Father has blessed you with the Holy Spirit who has come inside of you to add to your life. He comes to produce both fruit and gift and both are purpose to make you Christ-like. In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul reveals that there are at least none gifts to be known within the Christian community in its life and witness. The appeal within the chapter is to ‘desire spiritual gifts’ – v31 “But covet earnestly the best gifts”. The gifts are planned to make the Christian powerful and influential in ministry and service.

“God hath set some in the Church . . . . helps” – 1 Corinthians 12:28. One of the greatest needs in every Christian fellowship is that of helps. These kind of people who quietly see a task to be performed for others or some practical task in their assembly. They do not have to be told but note there is something to be done that can be of benefit and help to Christ’s kingdom. Barnabas originally was that kind of person in the Jerusalem church – Acts 2: 36-37. He was able to assist a little financially and in other ways. When someone was required to help in the fast-growing church at Antioch the apostles felt he was just the man who would do a good job – Acts 11:23. He later teamed up with Paul, did apostolic work and became his great helper. He was able also to help John Mark succeed. Being a ‘help’ is within the bounds of all!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A VERY SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS – Jeremiah 15

In reading this section there is an immediate sense of the very sad state of affairs that existed at this point amongst God’s people. Things had deteriorated to such a degree that they could not be worse. The Lord made it obvious that they had reached the point of seemingly no return because evil had reached such a dominancy and hardness that judgment was inevitable. All that could be done by Him to avert this ultimate measure had been done and so there was nothing left than His people entering into an atrocious experience of suffering and pain.

It shows how wicked the conditions had become that the Lord states: “Even if Moses and Samuel stood before me pleading for these people. I wouldn’t help them. Away with them! Get them out of my sight!” –v1. This certainly depicts the awful state that the nation was in. When no longer the Lord can listen to the pressing intercessions of favoured men and women of God because of the blatant evils existent then trouble of a serious nature is at hand. Whilst God respected these men and their praying He could and would not respect this people.

In the midst of the corrupt age that Christians are placed in today it is essential that the body of Christ be aware of the situation. It is apparent that because of the prevailing iniquity on a local, national and international scale that God cannot tolerate this much further. The cup of iniquity is almost full and so the prospect of the wrath of God. If ever the Christian Church needed to pray it is today and to be busy sounding God’s prophetic Word. Be on your guard against being seduced and corrupted by evil.
