If you love me-by Joan Orok

MOW
MOW- IF YOU LOVE ME
If I ask you; do you love me? Of course  you will say yes! but how can you prove your proclamation?
Ever wondered why Jesus asked Peter even up to three times if he (Peter) loved him? Remember when I asked if you loved me What was your reply? I can guess… I think you said yes; guess what! That is exactly what Peter said.
 If you truly love me, can you prove your love? Aside from me, if you say you love God can you prove it? The true test of love is in the response. In Matthew 25:14-30, Jesus tells a parable of the servants to whom he gave talents and their proof of love and obedience to the master was in the multiplication of the talents wherein they were given.
God is not interested in our proclamation of love, rather he is interested in our acts of faith in response to his word. Then Jesus say’s “And why call ye me Lord, Lord and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46).  
 “If you love me, keep my commandment” If you say you love God, then prove your love by believing his word without doubt and also acting accordingly. How far can you go to keep his word? Your believing is not enough until you act it. God knows his children that showers them back by blessing them immensely even in ways untold. He says “I love those who love me” If you love God, never mind; because He sees all your acts of love towards the brethren, the ministry and the propagation of the gospel of Jesus. 

  

Let us look a little further: Besides God, How about your pastor? Or the leader of any spiritual group you belong to. The bible says, God has given us apostles, evangelist, pastors, teachers for the perfecting of the saints. Meaning they are shepherds, and we are the sheep. A true sheep is a good follower, he follows without complain, any of our leader is our shepherd, for to prove your love is to follow. If you say you love; how far can you go in ensuring that the instruction given by your leader is carried out? that is the true test of love! The extent you can go in ensuring that your leaders instruction is obeyed and accomplished is the extent of your love. “Be not deceived God is not mocked…” (Gal. 6:7).

The only way to show our true love as disciples is by “doing” however, the “doing is not only applicable to the God, but also to your pastor, co-ordinator, sunday-school teacher, MOW leader, choir director or any one delegated to head of any Christians  group or organisation that you belong to. If you cannot obey and follow the instructions  of your leader here on earth how then can you obey God in heaven which you do not see. Watch out for a Christians who cannot follow after the instructions of his or her spiritual leader or pastor then you will see a man who cannot obey God.
Don’t be deceived if you are always looking down on the instruction of your leader, so would you treat Gods instructions.  

 Remember if you ever love me… I need prove … That prove is keep my commandment. i.e do my words.
“But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone.” (Gal. 6:4)

Anointing (5): Be aware of Negative Anointing.

MOW-TS
Word for Today
Anointing (5)-Be aware of Negative anointing.
Beloved 

Do you know that one can be anointed negatively for evil? Anger is a common example of demonic anointing. Do you get angry easily? Please, bind such spirit in yourself with the power of God ( Matthew 18:18).
Many people have lost their destinies in life to anger. The Word says: “Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools” (Eccl 7:9).
Grace & peace be multiplied to you… in Jesus name (2Peter 1:2). Amen.

WHAT COUNTS-by Rev A Akpan 

“Yea doubtless, I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them as dung, that I may win Christ “(Phil. 3:8)
A friend of mine who is also a pioneer pastor in Aba, Abia State of Nigeria visited me sometime ago and requested that I should accompany him to see a friend of his who’s been of tremendous support to him in the ministry. I had heard so much about the brother so I decided to go with him so I can use that opportunity to appreciate him for his love for the kingdom and for his encouragement to my friend in the ministry. I was meeting him for the first time. So after the introduction, I began to thank him for all he’s been doing to help my friend fulfill his calling.
Surprisingly, the brother just smiled and asked “What matters?” He didn’t say anything else. I was deeply touched by that statement. And in response, I said to him “I wish all Christians have the same understanding you have about the kingdom”. Majority of today’s Christians are more Church minded, rather than being kingdom minded. They talk much about “our Church” than the kingdom of God.
By that question, what he implied was “what is more important in life than to serve God with whatever he blesses us with?”, What gives fulfilment in life than to help others fulfill their purpose in life?, He was asking: “what counts in life than to live for the cause of the kingdom?”
That brother understands that there’s nothing one has that he didn’t receive (1Cor. 4:7). He understands that it is God who gives the power to get wealth (Deutr. 8:18), and that it is for the purpose of advancing His kingdom.
A foremost Missionary statesman, Oswald J. Smith once said “It is not how much of my money, but how much of God’s money that I keep for myself” Every heaven conscious believer knows that he or she is only a custodian of whatever God entrusts him or her with, and that everything he or she owns belongs to God.
King Solomon the preacher, the wisest, and the richest man that ever lived counsels thus “Whatsoever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for there’s no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave where you are going” (Ecl.9:10).
Finally, that brother understands that what counts in life is what we do for God and His kingdom while still alive. That should be the understanding of every one that is looking forward to meet with Jesus someday.

Be a Carrier of the Presence of God.

Ministry Of the Word (MOW)
MOW-True Spirituality 
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding 

Theme: Be a Carrier of the Presence of God.
Memory Verse:

” Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21)
Beloved

We bless God in Christ for the victory in His word, and for the new thing He is doing in our lives. Praise God. Hallelujah!
All over the world, true believers often travel long distances to look for God in Christ Jesus . The truth is that if Christ is well formed in your heart (Gal 4:19), then be sure you are a carrier of the presence God. However, you need understanding to enable the God within you to be manifested.
 

When Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God will come, His response was: “the kingdom of God is within you” (Luk 17:21). This statement is loaded with hidden meaning. The Bible says our body is the living temple of God, hence we ought to keep it holy. According to Apostle Paul with the help of the Holy Spirit: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” (1Cor 6:19). He continued : “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1Cor 6:20). Holiness is a key factor to being a carrier of God. Holiness is linked to purity. No wonder Jesus Himself taught us: “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God” ( Matthew 5:8). To experience purity in your inner self, ensure you have no bad thoughts against any one.

 

 

We need this deep understanding and God’s consciousness in our walk with God in Christ Jesus. Once, we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, then the true God lives in us through His HolySpirit. This is why Apostle John assured us: “Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). This is why Brother Paul assured us: “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Col 1:27).This why king David, the Psalmist, with the help of the Holy Spirit assured us: ” I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High” (Psalm 82:6). The list could go on and on. Once, you have received Jesus Christ into your heart, there is the need for you to grow in grace and knowledge that is in Christ Jesus, to enable Christ to be well formed in you. The plan of God is to manifest all true believers as Jesus on earth, and enable them do greater works; Apostle Paul clearly revealed this to us: “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God” (Rom 8:19).

 

God is a Spirit (John 4:24). The Holy Spirit of God will NOT dwell in a vessel (body) that is impure. What is that ‘habit’ that you secretly hold unto, which you know very well does not glorify God in your life? You may call it any name, but if it does not bring glory to God, please drop it NOW. Is it procrastination? Is it laziness? Is it coldness? Is it miserliness? Is it sleeping too much? Is it impure thoughts? Is it immoral thoughts? Is it frequent errors and mistakes? Is it poverty of ideas? etc. As a Spirit, God has ears, feelings, eyes etc. The Holy Spirit cannot withstand imperfection. The word of God affirms this “Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity”(Hab 1:13).

 

Many people have been ‘going to church ‘ for years, with nothing to show for it. Some believers lack the understanding that because of impurities the Holy Spirit finds it difficult to dwell in them. Some people make Christianity so uninteresting that even unbelievers do not envy them. They are toothless or powerless Christians. If you belong to this category, please wake up NOW. Arise and shine for your light has come.
To optimise your work and walk with God in Christ, you need to carry that consciousness that the kingdom God is within you. The kingdom of God is a kingdom of power, boldness, hardwork, diligence, righteousness, holiness, transparency, honesty, integrity, compassion , comfort, mercy, peace, joy, faith and love. 

 

 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). However, the first thing you must desire greatly is total spiritual freedom through the truth in the word of God ( John 8:32).

Prayer: There is someone reading this message, receive the grace to have increasingly consciousness that you are a carrier of the presence of God in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Thy Word have I hid in mine heart- by Sist Oghosa Ekhator 

MOW–TS
Theme:Thy Word have I hid in mine heart
Memory Verse: “Thy Word have i hid in mine heart, that i might not sin against thee”(Psalms 119:11)
Beloved

We thank God for bringing us to the last Sunday in the month of completion(June) in Jesus name .Amen.
Beloved,

According to our memory verse for today,Thy Word have i hid in mine heart that i might not sin against God means that,God’s Word hid,guards against sin.
God’s Word is to be hid in our heart because it can not lie(Titus 1:2).Again,when we hide the Word of God in our heart,it guides us to be truthful because as we all know ,The Word of God is Truth.( John 17:17).
Beloved

To “hid in mine heart” means to “Treasure”.In other words,to Treasure involves

i.Value

ii.Intent

iii.Steadfastness
The book of (Psalms 19:7-10) tells us about the value of the Word of God.When we talk about” Intent” Ezra 7:10,tells us of how prepared Ezra was to seek the law of the LORD and to keep it and teach it.Then “Steadfastness” Acts 2:42 says “And they continued steadfastly…”

Beloved

The heart with the Word (hidden treasure) Causes No Offense
1.God turns from us when we are in sin.(Isaiah 59:1-2)

2.The sin problem is universal and Fatal.(Romans 3:23 & 6:23)

3.The heart with the Word treasured,will obey the gospel.(Romans 6:17)

4.Walks in the light.(1John 1:7-9)

5.Seeks forgiveness.(Acts 8:22)

6.Even in a wilderness.(Acts 8:36)
Beloved

I believe we can all see the essentiality of these matters and pay our closest attention.God’s Word is the most effective I have ever seen. Hebrews 4:12 says”For the word of God is quick,and powerful…”
The word of God is like a fire and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces(Jeremiah 23:29).

Beloved

Only the Word of God can save.(Romans1:16). Only the Word of God can equip us.(2 Timothy 3:16-17).
In Conclusion

Beloved,I urge us to hide this Word of God in our heart because it is the only weapon to stand against the wiles of the devil.(Ephesians 6:11).
Prayer

May the good Lord give us the Grace to hide His Word in our heart always in Jesus Name Amen.
