Settle your own differences!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi
Today we’re examining 1 Corinthians Chapter 6. God wants us Christians to settle our own differences. Believers and nonbelievers are a different species living in the same community, but we’ve unrelated societal and cultural values.

We may keep company, but socially we avoid each other, and us Christians are more distinctive because, "they that feared the Lord spake often one to another..." Malachi 3:16. We maintain social distancing partly because God wants us to be separate in all manner of conversation, "unto the gospel of God" and for what shall happen hereafter that we shall judge the world, and shall also judge angels.  How one conducts his/her life here on earth will indeed define their destiny hereafter.

Anyway, it's a shame for those who shall inherit the kingdom of God, who shall judge the world, and  judge angels, that they should associate with the ungodly nor be judged by the unrighteous who shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Actually Paul said, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them ; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing ; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty" 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.

It’s unacceptable that brother should go law with brother, "and that before the unbelievers. Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?" 1 Corinthians 6:6-7.

Although we are in the world, we are not of this world, we belong to Christ.

He asked,  "If you have legal disputes about such matters, why go to outside judges who are not respected by the church?" 1 Corinthians 6:4. He said, I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren than that you should go to court with one another before the unrighteous of this world?

He said, do not be deceived;

"All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any" 1 Corinthians 6:12. Even though you’re allowed to do anything, remember you don’t belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price, to lead you. So you must glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

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
