Love the brotherhood

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend Muzembi 
"I hear of your love and of your faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints (God's people). I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective and powerful because of your accurate knowledge of every good thing which is ours in Christ" Philemon 1:5-6.

People should hear good things about you, only good news, your LOVE towards all saints, and  your FAITH in Christ. As a believer, keep breathing love, unleash all your potential, and continue to trust in the Lord, and in his people, that the communication of your faith may be effectual. Paul says, "Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men" 2 Corinthians 3:2.

Acknowledge all the graces of God in you, put them to use, and remember "the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal" 1 Corinthians 12:7. Where you love, love to the end. Don’t forget Jesus, "having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end"  John 13:1. You too see that you serve God, not half heartedly, but "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself" Luke 10:27. Your services for God must be delivered to your  uttermost ability!

Paul said to Philemon, "For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother" Philemon 1:7. Be kind, not because you have to, but because you want to.

Love the brotherhood; welcome others, forgive and nourish them, and the blessing of our Lord Jesus Christ will be upon you.

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 troubled ab…

Spirits are subject to you!

In Luke 10, Jesus sends seventy others, two by two into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.He said to them go your way; "And heal the sick there, and say to them, 'The kingdom of God has come near to you.'’ Luke 10:9 They came back thrilled and excited. This is the same experience we should have when we give out the Word of God, and when we pray for the sick and heal them. How glorious we feel also when more labourers are come into His harvest!Luke said, "the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name." And He said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven." Luke 10:17-20.Satan’s new home is t…

The sign of Jonah

And while the crowds were thickly gathered together, He began to say, "This is an evil generation. It seeks a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet, Luke 11:29 NKJV.Jesus looked at our generation and concluded; This is an evil generation. A profoundly immoral and wicked generation; very ungodly, sinful, corrupt, demonic and shocking because it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet.It seeks a sign, meaning that they thought what Jesus was doing was funfair, circus or some form of joke or entertainment. It’s a generation that never took the things of God serious for themselves."Others, testing Him, sought from Him a sign from heaven" Luke 11:16. They cross-examined Him about many things, but He said no sign will be given to [this generation] except the sign of Jonah the prophet.Paul bemoaned how the Corinthians sought for proof of Christ speaking in him. He said, "I pray to God that you…
