As the Apostles of Christ

First, true apostles of Christ do not use flattery words; 

Paul said, "For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile: But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts" 1 Thessalonians 2:3-4.

Preach the gospel of God whichever way you like; only don’t use flattering words which is kind like common practice these days. Flattery is excessive informalsweet talk given especially to further one's own interests. Know it’s flattery at this day and age hearing a million times someone say "God told me" and all he’s ever said are porkies.

Second, true apostles of Christ aren’t burdensome, but are gentle among believers, "even as a nurse cherisheth her children" 1 Thessalonians 2:7. Paul says, "our expenses would not be a burden to anyone, as we preached the gospel among you." He went on to say, "Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe" 1 Thessalonians 2:10.

I have this to say also to our apostles our day, behave yourselves among those who believe - walk worthy of God, perfectly straightforward and sincere, or rather please God at all times! Preach the gospel, as you were allowed of God, not with false motives or evil purpose in mind though. I don’t know how many of our apostles would be able to say "Ye are witnesses, and God also"?

If you holily and justly and unblameably behave yourselves, the word of God, will become effectual in the lives of those who believe, and that’s our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing. We don’t want those who believe to say because of you it’s vain to serve the Lord. As the apostles of Christ were not burdensome so should you.

God bless,

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…

Receive the Holy Spirit!

In Mark chapter one John the Baptist told his audience that the one who is more powerful is coming, he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.
And in those days Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized in the Jordan by John, and as soon as he came up out of the water, John saw the heavens open and the Spirit descending on Jesus like a dove, and immediately the Spirit drove him into the wilderness.
Now listen my friend; when you receive the Holy Spirit, immediately your life changes. 
God does not give you of his spirit to only experience a funny feeling; quaking, trembling, or entertaining others like what they do in circus, but he gave us that he should drive us to doing his will. The Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness for "forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him." It was not fun, but serious business, such that later a man with an unclean spirit, "cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, tho…

It is well with my soul

Jesus said, "In your patience possess ye your souls." Luke 21:19.
He says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36-37.
My message here for you is after you have done all in life, gain your souls, know how you can possess it. When you are self-aware, you consciously know and understand your own character, feelings, motives, desires and what these should serve in life. When we are self-aware, we are able to experience ourselves as separate individuals, with unique personalities natured for the divine, and it is what makes it possible for us to make lasting changes in our lives. 
Self-awareness is empowering, because the more self-aware we are, the more we know who we are, what our strengths are, where we need to make improvements, and  what to do. Know that you have a soul, and that soul needs to grow and it does grow only when you feed it with things divine, no…
