Keep the ordinances, as I delivered them!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi
Ordinances are traditions, statutes, acts or customs you have to observe  to show that you believe, and as Christians we have many of these which Paul has put it briefly saying, "Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ" 1 Corinthians 11:1.

Following his good example; his Christlike ethical behaviours, makes the burden lighter for you. Jesus said, "For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" Matthew 11:30. He said to his disciples, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me" Matthew 16:24. And again Paul said, "Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you" 1 Corinthians 11:2.

We’ve loads of these ordinances to observe, basically on how to go about everything; praying, fasting, giving,  attire, and concerning the Lord’s supper.

He’s worried about some traditions that we Christians sometimes approve, that he said, "we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God." He says, "Judge among yourselves. Is it proper? "Now in giving these instructions I do not praise you, since you come together not for the better but for the worse" 1 Corinthians 11:17.

Examine yourself 

"For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged" 1 Corinthians 11:31.

He said, "Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee" 1 Timothy 4:16. Lest you come together unto condemnation.

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 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
