Called to be saints!

Reverend LC Muzembi
"God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord" 1 Corinthians 1:9.

God is the one who invited you into the fellowship of his dear Son, Jesus Christ. He called us to be saints, and by believing we answered His call to be his own holy people. He made us holy saints by means of Christ Jesus, "just as he did for all people everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours" 1 Corinthians 1:2.

There is enough grace for you in the fellowship; "That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" 1 Corinthians 1:5-7.

Grace simply means God is helping you, he has given you gifts, and now that you are in Christ, you’ve good grace, favour, and God’s most important consideration for life situations.  In this fellowship, you’re not on your own - God’s inexhaustible grace is with you. No wonder why Paul said, "Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ" 1 Corinthians 1:3.

You’ve been called to be saints, "for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ" 1 Corinthians 1:4. But first, Christ has to be confirmed/born in you, before you can partake of this grace. When you do this, he will also confirm you to the end.

Those who are called, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God, "that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God-and righteousness and sanctification and redemption- that, as it is written, "He who glories, let him glory in the LORD."" 1 Corinthians 1:29-31.

Different as we are God invited us into the fellowship of his Son, and is become to us the author and finisher of our faith. He’s our Lord, meaning he became our righteousness, sanctification and redemption.

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 troubl

Questionable circumstances are a red flag

  Stay away from a preacher who never takes time off even if ill/old, who insists on dealing with certain people - that’s a red flag!  Questionable circumstances are a red flag believers have to look out for. Here is how the gospel works; you’re told the news first and then you relay it to others. Never claim ownership of it, instead pass it on, share and never enforce it upon a generation. Treating it as if it is yours is corruption or abuse of the delegated powers. Remember Rome was not built in one day, meaning the gospel is a complex task, it takes all our efforts, and great achievement takes time and effort and should not be rushed. So you pass it own to show that you have understood the gospel. No generation claims supremacy, the fathers passed it own to their sons (kings), prophets to other prophets too, and to Jesus, and Jesus to the apostles (Holy Ghost), and the apostles to us and so forth. I like how John puts it, he said, "I baptize with water: but there standeth one a

Experience God's peace!

Reverend LC Muzembi  "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" Philippians 4:8 KJV Yes my friend, stay true to the Lord, remember he is coming soon. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, and it’s peace which will keep you through this journey.  The Lord said, " Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you " John 14:27. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. And the Apostle said, " Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you " Philippians 4:9. In short, read your bible, study it through, receive its truths with open heart or the hearing of faith, acknowledge
