Word for Today: The gospel is advanced through our challenges .
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS)
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” ( Romans 8:28).
Joyful Sunday to the great family of the true God in Christ Jesus .
Truly, all things work together for our good, if truly we love God. God uses our negative experiences to demonstrate His power and advance the kingdom of light. Please, do not murmur or complain when you go through challenges. The gospel of our Lord Jesus is advanced through our challenges. Am a living example :
“But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things which happened unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel…” ( Phil 1:12-14).
Many people will do everything possible to avoid challenges. Remember Joseph, Job, Paul etc. Saint James puts it this way:
“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing” ( James 1:2-4).
Rather than praying to avoid challenges, pray to God for more grace. His grace is sufficient for us (2Corinthians 12:9).
Meditate on the word of God daily.
Stay connected with Jesus, the Word. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Seek knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Stand by the truth. Only the truth can make you free indeed ( John 8:32).
Be careful with your thoughts, words, and actions.
Father, please help use to choose a life of righteousness in Jesus name. Amen. Please, Father, continue to frustrate and expose every pretender in our midst in Jesus name. Amen.
Thank you Jesus. Blood of Jesus!
