See God’s Grace in all

You’ve to develop certain habits in order to see the grace of God in other people also. Habits are the small decisions you make and actions you perform every day. What you spend time thinking about and doing each day ultimately forms the person you are, the things you believe, the personality that you portray towards yourself and how you see others also. 

In Mark 8:23-25 Jesus heals a blind man, and he asked him if he saw ought. The man looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking. He put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly. Develop a habit to see others as who they really are, not as trees. But see God’s grace upon them.

When it comes to dealing with other believers first know this principle; "What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common" Acts 10:15.

Peter said, “Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?" Acts 11:17.

Before you doubt or question a fellow believer’s faith, first ask yourself, what or who am I, that I can withstand God in them? 

Remember God also gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ. Barnabas came to Antioch and saw the grace of God among the people and was glad, "and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord" Acts 11:23. There are people who when they visit your church they cause great havoc, but Barnabas was not like that. He saw the grace of God among them; that others were Christians just as he was also, that they also received the word of God, and had like gifts as they also had.

Sometimes believers forget that we eat the same spiritual meat and drink the same spiritual drink. They’ve a tendency of "preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only." But 2 Corinthians 4:13 says, "We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you."


What’s pastor saying? I’m saying see God’s grace in all. Romans 8:16-17 says, "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together."

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…
