Be ready to every good work!

Paul says, let ours, our people, learn to maintain good works, and to help all who need your assistance.

He says, "This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men." Titus 3:8 

It’s every believer’s duty to know the things that are good and profitable, and what’s not profitable for them and others too.

For that unprofitable he says, avoid; 

"But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain" Titus 3:9. Avoid or reject evil, brawling, deceit, lust, pleasure, envy, malice, hate, disobedience, and the list goes on.

However, he says affirm constantly, that they be careful to maintain good works, that their lives may be fruitful in all good works. Ever good work which you do is rewarded accordingly.

Being sound in faith as well as contending for it are good works, and "in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you" Titus 2:7-8. Good behaviour is good works, "that the word of God be not blasphemed" Titus 2:5.

He said, "be ready to every good work," as it is fit in the Lord because some believers can’t be bothered, "they profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate" Titus 1:16. "But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness, 1 Timothy 6:11.(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. Ephesians 5:9-10.

The gospel of Christ!

The gospel of God, is that which pertains to His Son Jesus Christ, through him we have received grace and apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith to all.

Our service is rendered to God, whom we serve by our spirits telling the good news about his Son.

Preaching the gospel is all manner of witnessing and imparting spiritual gifts on God’s people, the believers, the called of Jesus Christ, who are called to be saints. That method of believing is called faith, and mutual faith when we together believe.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith" Romans 1:16-17.

The gospel of God is that which concerns His Son. God can be known only through the gospel of Christ, and that which may be known of God has now been made manifest in us; for God r…

Partakers of Christ's sufferings!

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy" 1 Peter 4:12-13

It is no shame to suffer for being a Christian, instead it is a privilege, folks. For "if ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye ; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified" 1 Peter 4:14.

Suffer according to God's will, not "as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters" 1 Peter 4:15.  But do what is right folks, and trust yourself to God who made you, for he will never fail you.

"The end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: …

Your kingdom come!

One of the disciples said to Jesus, "Lord, teach us to pray," and he said, "When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth" Luke 11:2.

"...Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven..." You find this in the King James Version, some other translations don’t have this, and you can understand why from scripture.

After resurrection the disciples came together and asked Jesus "Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth" Acts 1:6-8.

The Holy Ghost came to give us who believe an experience of "things pertaining to the ki…
