GRATEFUL HEART

I am greatful for life, to be counted amongst the living, what about you? are you grateful for the gift of life? It is just by the mercies of God Almighty, so many wished to see this day but they are no more, you and i are alive this day. in spite of our enemies.  it has please the Lord to keep us alive. dont you think you should be grateful for that singular reason?

Or are you saying to yourselves why should i be grateful? when there are  issues surrounding me, or because of the challenges you are faced with? or that problem? The lord is saying to you this morning, do not feel discourage, forgotten, abandoned, nor dejected

Isaiah 49:15-16 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget, Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me

The Lord is saying to you this morning that He cares for you. He sees and He knows, but you see, if you are not in Jesus Christ, He becomes helpless in some matters of yours,

Isaiah 59:1-2, Behold, the Lord‘s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

People of God, sin is the major cause of the problem we are been faced with today, even in the world at large.

this is why He said abide in Me and I in you.

John 15:4-5, Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

For without Jesus Christ we cannot do anything of our own. we must abide in Him, by drawing near to him so He can draw near unto us james 4:8.

We must surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. and as we do so our lives will never remain the same.

PURPOSE

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Do you know you have been made in the image of God and after His likeness, and that you have been created for a purpose? and the essence of your existence is to worship your creator?

But what do we see today, men have become worshippers of their fellow men, other gods, and the devil.

 Exodus 20:3-5 saysThou shalt have no other gods before me.

 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

So then you can can only have fellowship withn your creator and fulfill purpose only when you: accept Jesus as you Lord and personal saviour, and begin to walk in the light of your salvation.

John 15:4-5 says, Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Our creator knows what He has created each an everyone of us for, therefore without Him we are nothing and we can do nothing without Him,

Just as the fish when taken out of water gasp for breath and dies within minutes, so also we, we are dead spiritually without Christ Jesus.

You can only find rest for your soul and fulfill purpose only in Jesus Christ.

For those who have looked else, out Jesus , or we have bowed and served other gods, Jesus is saying to you today, I want to have mercy on you anmd abundantly pardon ypu. only confess your sins before Him and He will give you a clean start.

 

 

STANDING FIRM

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose

keep standing, the bible says resist the devil and he flee away.

THE RICH MAN AND LAZARUS

The story of the rich man and lazarus is still much applicable in today’s world; this present generation ,men have become lovers of themselves, their heart is smeared, some can even kill their own flesh and blood, for evil fortification, for wealth, promotion, etc, they can go to any length to get what they want, they have exchanged eternal life for total condemnation.

We see the story of Lazarus and the richman in Luke 16, the richman thought he had everything to himself and he couldnt care less, even while lazarus came to him soliciting for help, until death came knocking.

19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

From verses 27-28 the ricnman was begging Abraham to send lazarus to his father’s house, his neighbors, to friends to warn them of the danger that lies ahead, when one is living in sin, when you are living carelessly, when you are been carried away by the frivolities of life, and forgotten there is a day for judgement.

The servants of the Lord are every where preaching the mesage of salvation, repentance and deliverance, but attention is not paid to this servants of God.

29 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’

30 “‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’31 “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”

Today, may it not be too late for us as it where for the richman, amend your ways, the life He gave you will be accounted for, God the father didnt send the son to die for us in vain, one day we will give account of ourselves,

Always remember this, Jesus is coming back soon,

Praise the Lord.
