We can rejoice, too!

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God" Romans 5:1-2 KJV.

All because of what our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us;
  • we have peace with God
  • we have access by faith
  • we glory in tribulations also
"And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement" Romans 5:11.

We joy, because through Jesus Christ, this grace of God and the gift of righteousness came also upon us, resulting in our justification.

"...we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand...."

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom grace is multiplied in our lives, to counter the profusion of sin, that, just as sin reigned in death, so also will grace reign, resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. God’s love is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us, to guarantee our salvation, to keep this grace alive and "reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord" Romans 5:21.

Walk in newness of life!

"I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness." Romans 6:19
  • yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness,
  • yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God, Romans 6:13
His benefits to you is you become a part of him, to include holiness and everlasting life.

"Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God" Romans 7:4.

What it means is, now you can really serve God; not in the old way, but in the new way, with all your heart and mind, you can now produce good fruit, that is, good deeds for God.

So you see how it is: the new life tells you to do right, Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord.

"So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you" Romans 8:8-11.

All who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God; they are controlled by their new nature if they have the Spirit of God living in them. Those who follow after the Holy Spirit find themselves doing those things that please God.
  • they walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit,
  • they that are after the Spirit mind the things of the Spirit.

"...we glory in tribulations also..."

"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" Romans 8:16-17

If we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.

"And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body" Romans 8:23.

We Christians, although we have the Holy Spirit within us as a preview of future glory, yet we also groan to be released from pain and suffering. We, too, wait anxiously for that day when God will give us our full rights as his children, including the new bodies he has promised us- heavenly bodies that will never be sick again and will never die. But despite all our tribulations, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us enough to die for us.

Jesus is Rejected at Nazareth!

Then Jesus left the wilderness of Judea, where Satan tempted him for forty days, and " returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. " Luke 4:14-16 NKJV. Before, full of the Holy Spirit, he spent forty days in the wilderness being tempted by the devil, and now he returns to Galilee, in the power of the Spirit to begin his ministry. He taught in other synagogues, being glorified by all, but here in Nazareth, where He was brought up, is rejected. They handed to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: " The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To

Who are you really working for?

I’m here to help you figure out who you’re really working for, because if you know you will provide great service for him/her, or them, no matter what you do, you need to know who they are and what they’re looking for. Someone is saying I am working for God, but that could be a blanket statement my friend because working for God means feeding His lambs, and is how you offer His sheep the best service possible. For some of us it is more clear cut than for others. I can’t tell you who you are working for, it would be wrong to assume that you’re serving God, men or yourself, etc, but I can help you identify who you’re really working for, and how you can do it with all of your heart if you find it well. Why we serve! We serve God for different reasons, but the work of the Lord couldn’t be same as the work of men or of the world. His is light, with no darkness at all - pure religion! The angel said to the church in Thyatira, “‘ These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of

The Wedding at Cana

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him, John 2:11 KJV. The first time Jesus performed a miracle (revealed his glory) was at a wedding in Cana. Jesus' mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. Wine ran out, and Jesus' mother told him, " They have no more wine ." She went to him anticipating a miracle, and Jesus said, " Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come " John 2:4. But she tells the servants anyway, " Whatever He says to you, do it ."  This you should also know my friend, tell him your need anyway, and " Do whatever he tells you ." But be fully aware of the divine timing also. The timing by which waters are stirred up or the spirit moves is set by the Father. Jesus said to them, " Fill the waterpots with water. " And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, " Dr
