John 2:18-19

Christ Jesus must not Lord just on our lips but it should show in our lives. Our actions should portray his rule over our very existence.

Authority Edit

But the Jewish leaders demanded, “What are you doing? If God gave you authority to do this, show us a miraculous sign to prove it.” “All right,” Jesus replied. “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:18-19)

Daily Bible Reading: Exodus 39:32 – 40:38, Numbers 9:15-23

respect-my-authorityRelate: I don’t even watch the show. I think I saw one episode in it’s entirety. That was about a trapper keeper that turned into a monster and terrorized the world. It was pretty stupid. The bits and pieces I’ve seen here and there when I’ve been around other people watching it has done nothing to change my opinion. With that said, however, when I was thinking about the topic for today it was Cartman’s voice ringing through my head. I don’t even like Southpark. But some lines for better or worse have transcended their original use and found their…

Lord of My Doing

The world must see christ in what we do.

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

(Colossians 3:17)

Reflection:

To say that Jesus is Lord is to acknowledge and commit ourselves to a lifetime of ministry. There is no exception to this commitment. Jesus made it quite clear in the Great Commission and when He prayed to the Father and also later said,

  • “As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.” (John 17:18)
  • “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” (John 20:21)

 We are all called into ministry, equipped for ministry and empowered for ministry. That does not mean that we are all called into the same type of ministry. There are many different vocations –teachers, doctors, nurses, lawyers, engineers, bus drivers, sales people, scientists, plumbers…

Abundance (John 2:6)

THE RIVER WALK

overflow edit

Read: Exodus 20:1 – 22:15

Standing nearby were six stone water jars, used for Jewish ceremonial washing. Each could hold twenty to thirty gallons. (John 2:6)

Relate: Jesus has this bad habit of overdoing it. OK, OK, since it is Jesus we’re talking about, and since He is the Son of God, perhaps we shouldn’t call the habit “bad”. Nothing He does is bad. It is just that, when He decides to bless… He overdoes it. Just think about when he decided to feed the five thousand. He didn’t just provide enough for everyone to have two hours devours each. He didn’t make sure there was just enough for each person to meet their two thousand calorie diet and that’s it. (By the way, I think a two thousand calorie diet is ridiculous. Two thousand calories is what I call breakfast.) He provided enough food so that every man (five…

SANCTIFICATION

We have been predestinated for Sanctification ie
Fore-ordained for conformity to the image or nature or likeness of Christ Jesus our Lord.
Sanctification is the process by which God makes us holy and conformed to Christ’s image.
This is purely the work of the Holy Spirit but highly dependent on our willingness to submit to the Lordship of Christ Jesus.
However,  for sanctification to be effective,  there has to be Justification (the process by which God chooses to see us in our ‘finished state’ rather than our ‘factual state’ ie is being seen as sinless even though we are still struggling with sin).
Justification frees us from ourselves and the devil ; from their taunts on the mind.
Romans 8:29, Ephesians 1:4

Don’t Give It Up

Eze 3:8 But I will make you as unyielding and hardened as they are.

May the Lord make you as stubborn and as unyielding as your enemies who are in pursuit of you and until you make a full end of them, may you never give up. Until favourable results are seen may you never have cause to relax.

HAPPY NEW WEEK!!!!!!

LIFE AND GROWTH

Life is all about growth. All things that have life are expected to grow. Life however becomes meaningless when we cease to grow by fearing the new.
We fail to grow when we fear what is ahead and are anxious about tomorrow. Much of this fear is prompted by issues and defeats of the past but as Paul says in Philippians 3:13-14; ‘this one thing i do, forgetting about what is BEHIND….., i press on towards the mark….!
Until we can lay to rest the past, we can never live the present and the uncertainties of the future will always drown us.
