Word for Today:
Work out your own salvation.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS).
“Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12).
Good morning to the people of God in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed new week ahead.
Your salvation is the most single important gift from the Lord ; you need to protect it at all cost because salvation can be lost. Some Christians are not conscious of their salvation daily . We are admonished by our memory verse to regularly ‘work out your own salvation with fear and trembling ‘ ( Phil 2:12).
With the current events in the world there is no doubt that RAPTURE is at hand . The signs are very glaring. I agree with most the observers on this platform and outside this platform that every Christian should examine himself/herself and ensure that he/she is heaven bound. There is not much time left. The word says:
“Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man” (Proverbs 3:3-4).
Life is full of challenges. In order to minimise distractions, we are to keep our mind and thoughts focused on the Word. The word of God is nourishing to your heart and spirit. Take time to ‘eat’ the word of God like Jeremiah, so as to sustain your joy in the Lord:
“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts” (Jeremiah 15:16).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Stay CONNECTED with the Jesus, the grace of God to humanity. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. He is the light of the world. He is the Spirit of God.

Thank you Jesus for granting salvation to a fallen humanity out of love.
Blood of Jesus envelopes us. Amen.
