The obedience of faith!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi 
" Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation about Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept silent for long ages but now revealed and made known through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the command of the eternal God to advance the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles - to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ-to him be the glory forever! Amen" Romans 16:25-27 CSB.

My friend, I know God is able to strengthen you  through these articles of mine. The preaching of Christ is so that you may have faith in him and as you obey him, you will be established, as you grow through his word.

God wants to establish you through scripture, and  reward you for your obedience of faith. But first, He must bring  into captivity your thoughts to the obedience of Christ; that you have “a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled" 2 Corinthians 10:5-6.

Obedience, i.e.  Your faith in him is it that shows you’re ready to revenge all disobedience.

Hebrews 11:2 says, For by it [faith] the elders obtained a good report, and we see in Romans 16 how others believed and it was counted unto them for righteousness.

  • Phoebe made herself useful in the church she belonged, she helped many who believed, and the man of God, vs 1-2.
  • Priscilla and Aquila availed themselves to all the churches, not only to the one in their house, but they were coworkers in the ministry of Christ, they risked even their own lives, Romans 16:3-5
  • Mary, the Apostle said she worked so hard to our benefit., vs 6. And some were genuine, like good friends, and hard working.

But "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple" Romans 16:17-18

Stay away from those who cause divisions, whose aim is to destroy other people's faith, teaching things about Christ that are contrary to what you have been taught. Stay away from Balaams, Judas Iscariots, and Demas who’re evil workers.

"And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen" Romans 16:20.

Always remember, God will strengthen you, not by your own effort, but by his spirit which works in you through the prophetic Scriptures, according to the command of the eternal God to advance the obedience of faith to you.

God bless,

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…

Your fellowship in the gospel

As we fellowship with each other as believers, remember that our fellowship is only in the gospel. We love the brotherhood with the affection of Jesus Christ only, nothing more.Apostle Paul says, "And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God," Philippians 1:9-11.So, as you fellowship with other believers, always remember that your job as a Christian is to ensure the progress of others and joy of faith, and to defend the gospel. The Apostle says, "Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so...that you may stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel." Philippians 1:27.Be like-minded; help each other, work together with one heart, be warm-h…

The Lord’s Supper - Do this in remembrance of Me

Jesus prepared for the passover with his disciples, and then "He said to them, "With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God." Luke 22:15-16He would no longer eat of it because He’s the Fulfilment of the Passover.The Passover lamb was prepared/ killed a day before The Passover Feast, a day Jews commemorate their deliverance from slavery in Egypt. On Passover, Jews also celebrate the birth of the Jewish nation after being freed by God from captivity.Jesus is the fulfilment of the Passover. He is the Lamb of God, sacrificed to set us free from bondage to sin (John 1:29; Psalm 22; Isaiah 53). The blood of Jesus covers and protects us, and his body was broken to free us from eternal death (1 Corinthians 5:7).In the Jewish tradition, a hymn of praise known as the Hallel is sung during the Passover Seder. In it is Psalm 118:22, speaking of the Messiah:…
