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.

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

The ways of the Gentiles

Thus says the LORD: "Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, For the Gentiles are dismayed at them , Jeremiah 10:2 NKJV. Gentiles are the people of this world; are people who care for the things of this life, who glory in flesh and blood, but sit in darkness and the shadow of death.  The LORD said, first, " Do not learn the way of the Gentiles, " second, do not listen to their foolish predictions, and thirdly, Jesus sending His disciples said," Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. " Matthew 10:5. Why? Because their ways are futile and foolish. This world is their portion, but us Christians, as Jesus was so are we in this world - strangers and pilgrims, for we are of God. All the wealth that you see around is the world's goods, but our treasure is above, and our help comes from there too. 1 John 3:14-15 says, " We know that we have passed from death to life, because w

Wise men from the East

After Jesus was born, wise men from the East came  to worship him bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh with them. Many people came to  worship him; shepherds, kings, and angels also. Shepherds came to a manger but these wise men came to the house where Mary were with the child. They came from the East to Jerusalem, asking, "Where is He who has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East, and have come to worship him." When King Herod heard this, he was frightened and all Jerusalem with him; and calling together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born.  They told him, " In Bethlehem of Judea; for so it has been written by the prophet: ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel. ’”  Then Herod secretly called for the wise men and learned from them the exact time when th
