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."

Who are you following?

Each and every one of us will follow someone, however the person you follow will either lead you to fulfil your potential or will lead you to the wrong place.
Who are you following? A deaf-blind leader always lead someone into a ditch. Paul said, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2 
 He reminds us of who to follow and that person is none other than God himself who’s to lead you until you encounter his purpose and will. 
Following God will lead you to a new birth with Jesus, and life in the spirit. You never go wrong with his plan. But if you follow people they’ll lead you to all uncleanness; idolatry, covetousness and fornication. "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope..."Romans 8:20.

The office of a bishop!

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach." 1 Timothy 3:2
You got to tick all the boxes to be a bishop, not to tick tick the only one box that suits you most, but all. It‘s not enough only to be able to teach whilst you fail on the other aspects. A bishop must be blameless and beyond reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine, not a bully, but gentle, considerate, and free from the love of money. Now consider also your leader, if he/she can teach, but falls short on the other characteristics then you should know you’re both liable to falling into the devil’s trap. How will he/she take care of the church of God while ethically wrong?
Paul says, "These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, …

Why we go to church

Church is a place where the Lord your God has chosen to place his name there.

Moses said, thou shalt go there, "and worship before the Lord thy God" Deuteronomy 26:10.

You go to Church to worship the Lord, and to "rejoice in every good thing which the Lord thy God hath given unto thee, and unto thine house..." Deuteronomy 26:11. While there also you petition the Lord to bless you too.

Deuteronomy 26:16-19 says, "This day the Lord thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. Thou hast avouched the Lord this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice: And the Lord hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, a…
