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

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
