Word for Today: One heart and one soul.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality ( TS)
“And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common” ( Acts 4:32).
Greetings to everyone especially the family of our Lord Jesus Christ. We bless the Lord for a brand new day.
Brethren, Christ is a body of knowledge that needs to be learned . It’s unfortunate that many Christians of today are walking in ignorance. Many Christians are in captivity because of ignorance:
“Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst” (Isaiah 5:13)
In our memory verse the word of God says the early believers were of “one heart and of one soul “. This is the exact nature of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Compare to what is happening in the church today. The church members get poorer while the church leaders get richer. When you watch some videos of how some pastors get money from their members, you have no doubt that ignorance is really dangerous.
Recently, I was discussing the word of God and the church with a Christian brother on the telephone and he kept making reference to Hebrews 10:25, do not forsake the assembly of brethren. I needed to explain to him that this was a wise counsel by apostle Paul, but not a command. And that it’s not a mere physical gathering of people but spiritual gathering of sons God. And that discussing and sharing the word of God like we were doing on the telephone was a part of the gathering and I referred him to Matthew 18:20. I asked him how many people that normally gathered in his church have fulfilled the commandment in Colossians 3:16 and he laughed.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” ( Colossians 3:16).
Actually when I asked the brother where do not forsake the assembly of brethren is written, his reply was: it is in the bible.
You tell people you are a Christian, when last did you say “it is written ” ( Matthew 4: 4-10).
Let your heart be filled richly with the word of Christ.
Spend time with the Word and be free indeed. It would then be very difficult for you to be oppressed or deceived by people who have corrupted the word of God and only look after their pockets.
Stay connected to JESUS, also called the Word. He is the bread of life. He is the true light of the world. Be knowledgeable. Seek wisdom. Be enlightened.
Keep your thoughts & mind positive & healthy . Avoid negativity as much as possible.
Think no evil against anyone. Live in peace with one another as much as it depends on you.
Be compassionate and kind to one another.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Dear Father, please give your church the grace to be one in heart and soul in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Father, please continue to frustrate and expose every pretender and wrong doer in our churches and societies in Jesus name.
Thank you Jesus for filling my heart richly with the word of Christ.
Blood of Jesus!
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
