Grace(2)-By Grace Alone!

Word for Today
Grace (2)-By Grace Alone!

What have you that you have not received? (1Cor 4:7). Truly, we brought nothing into this world, and we shall depart this world with nothing. 
Our lives, our qualifications, our titles, our positions, our wealth are given to us purely by grace. This understanding should help us to appreciate God more than ever and to learn increasing humility. A heart of gratitude is all we need.

Apostle Paul said: 

” I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase…” ( 1Cor 3:6-7). There is no goodness without God.
No matter your circumstances today, be thankful to God continually for His GRACE.
Grace & peace be multiplied to you… in Jesus name (2Peter 1:2). Amen.

The Integrity of God- by Iyobosa Ben- Bassey

MEMORY VERSE:”God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken and shall he not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19).

Glory to God Almighty for bringing us to the last sunday of the Month of June 2016; We thank our Creator for His Protection, Love, Mercy and Grace that has been upon our lives IJN.

Integrity is the quality of being honest and upright in  character. It simply means saying what you will do and doing what you say (Numb 23:19).

He is the unchangeable God (Mal 3:6).

Our God remains the same Yesterday today and forever ( Heb 13:8). Whatever He has done before He can do again. There are testimonies in the Bible that confirm His integrity.

In Genesis 17:4-5, God promised to make Abraham father of many nations and He fulfilled it. 

God spoke about captivity of Israelites in a strange land and their deliverance after four  hundred years (Genesis 15:13).
CONCLUSION: God cannot lie and as children of God, we should stand for integrity. 

PRAYER: As u focus more on the word of God this week, the grace to live a life of integrity  will be given to u IJN.

If you love me-by Joan Orok

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)
