The Word (42)- Greatness is in Serving.

The Word (42)-Greatness is in Serving.

“But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant ” (Matthew 23:11).

Beloved 
Greatness is in humility and service to humanity. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ washed His disciple’s feet to show us example of humility and service.
Today, all over the world, both in the church and outside the church, we have leaders who want to be served by their subjects. The greatest teacher who ever lived is telling us that to be great, we must be willing to serve with humility. Many people are jobless today, not because there is no work, but because they are highly selective of what they want to do.
If you believe in the truth, go out sharing the word of truth with others. Your have just one master, that is the truth of the gospel. Stop running around. The words below are from the Lord Himself:

“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ ” (Matthew 23:9-10).

PRAYER

Father, please give me the grace of greatness in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

The Word (41)-With the Word, it’s All or None.

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today

The Word (41)-With the Word, it’s All or None.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).

Beloved 

If you have chosen the truth (Jesus), stay with the light in the truth. If you prefer darkness, stay in darkness. There should be no mixing. There are many in the church of Christ shouting Lord, Lord, but their hearts are far from the Lord.
Our Lord Himself speaking in the book of revelation, declares:
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3:15-16)
If you are for the Lord, be crucified with Him. Do no longer stand on the fence. Joshua in his farewell speech to the children of Israel asked them to choose one master to serve:
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15).
As for me and those who are faithful within the MOW family, we will serve the true God in Christ Jesus with integrity. Please, emulate apostle Paul and be crucified with Christ daily.

PRAYER

Father, please give me the grace to crucify every part of me with you in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

The Word (40)-Be the Word for others to READ.

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today

The Word (40)-Be the Word for others to READ.

“Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart” (2Corinthians 3:2-3).

Beloved 

Do you KNOW that depending on the way you live your life, you can be the message, gospel and the bible for others to read and emulate? As most people know, children often learn by imitation and modelling rather than reading and analysis of information. 
Without carrying a big bible and standing on the pulpit to verbally preach the gospel, what can others learn from you? I have said it many times, a dump person can preach CHRIST effectively through actions if he or she chooses to do so. Let people learn from your words and actions.
Many people spend a lot of time talking, without a single word of God being mentioned. Speak the Word only and miracles will begin to happen.
Henceforth, be careful with your words. The Word says:
“In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise” ( Proverbs 10:19).

PRAYER

Father, please give me the grace to live a life of truth and integrity for others to emulate in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

The Word (39)-the Word of God is the head of the Church.

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today

The Word (39)-the Word of God is the head of the Church .

“And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence” (Colossians 1:18)

Beloved 

The Word of God is the head of the church the world over. In the world today, there is so much ignorance regarding the spiritual meaning of church. The church is NOT the building, though building is important to the body of Christ. 
The church of our Lord Jesus Christ are all those who are truly born again taken together. When our Lord and Saviour first used the word church, it was with reference to the person of Peter:

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” ( Matthew 16:18).

Ignorance has made many Christians to reduce the Church of Jesus Christ to the level of ordinary building. You often hear worshippers say ‘I am going to church’.

As someone has rightly said, if you are born again, you CAN NEVER go to yourself! If you are truly born again, you are part and parcel of the body of Christ (the church) at all times:
“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular” (1Corinthians 12:27).
We need this understanding to remain connected to the Word of God at all times, not only on Sundays, as most Christians tend to do. In Christ, every day is holy.

Receive the grace of understanding to be connected to the Word of God at all times in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

The Word (38)-the Word of God is the Word of Life.

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today

The Word (38)-the Word of God is the Word of Life.

“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life” (1John 1:1)

Beloved 

The Word of God is the Word of life. Life is the opposite of death. Once you are born again in Christ Jesus, you are a son of God by His grace. However, it is your responsibility to align your thoughts and words with the Word of God. 
In the contemporary church, many are born again, but they are ignorant of the Word of Life. By their words you know them. The word you speak out is a signal to the angelic world, whether good or bad. It is your responsibility to speak the word of life and live, otherwise, you negate your born again status.

Having accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, choose life and live:
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live” (Deuteronomy 30:19).

Receive the grace of Life in the Word of God in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.

REJOICE, THERE’S A HEDGE!-by Rev A AKPAN.

“Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has…?” (Job 1:10).
Above quotation was Satan’s answer to God when He (God) was telling him about Job’s faithfulness. Even Satan knows that every child of God has a hedge of protection around him or her that makes it impossible for him to touch or hurt such a person. Satan knows that except the hedge is removed or except by God’s permission, his attempt to harm God’s child will be futile.
God expects all of His children who are daily living to please Him to live with this understanding. Jesus speaking in Luke 12:7 says “Indeed, the very hairs of your head are numbered. Don’t be afraid, you are worth more than many sparrows”. Psalm 91:1-2 says “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most high God shall rest under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord He is my refuge and my fortress in whom I trust”
Every child of God need to understand that he or she enjoys a covenant of divine protection with God by reason of he or she being born again and lives a consistent life of separation from sin. The scripture says “For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3). Yes, our life is hidden with Christ, that’s why the devil cannot have access to us since he cannot go pass God and Jesus and get to us. Hallelujah!
This is a glorious revelation that God wants us to have that will make us to fear less, be safety-conscious, and walk tall always, knowing that we’re divinely secured. The name of the Lord, we’re told is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and is safe (Prov. 18:10). Let’s understand that our lives are hid in Christ with God, and because the devil cannot touch God, he won’t be able to access us as well. We are untouchable!
The only time we become susceptible to the devil is when we deliberately break the hedge we are surrounded with. “He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it, and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him” (Ecl. 10:8) KJV. So long as the hedge God puts around us remains intact, the serpent, representing the devil cannot bite (hurt) us.
So in order to continue to enjoy this provision of divine security, and protection, which is our birthright as God’s elect, we’re to shun sinful acts, sternly refuse to compromise with anything that doesn’t glorify God, but live to please Him at all times. This is the key to ensuring our hedge is not broken, and as long as our hedge remains unbroken, the devil’s effort to reach and harm us will perpetually remain a fiasco. 
INSIGHT: let’s understand that our life is hid with Christ in God, and as long as the devil cannot touch God, he won’t be able to access us.

The Word (37)- the Word of God is God.

MOW-True Spirituality 

Word for Today

The Word (37)-the Word of God is God.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1)

Beloved 

The main reason I am very passionate about the Word of God is because I have come to the understanding that there is no difference between God and His Word. Anything God can do for you, the Word of God can do for you. The Word of God was with God in the beginning and is God. Someone has said God is a mystery. The truth is that God can be experienced personally.

The more of the Word of God you know and have, the more of God you discover. Every successful person in life, whether born again or NOT born again, will agree that life is full of battles. Life becomes very difficult if you are not CONNECTED to the Word of God through spiritual understanding.
The Word of God is the single most important being in heaven and on earth. Irrespective of your job and work, embrace the word of God today and start having a purpose in life:
“Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away” (Mark 13:31).

Receive the grace to embrace the Word of God in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
