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

What do you want to see in a 21st century church?

 I wanna see the glory of the Lord come in the temple! Once again, that when I come in the temple, behold, the whole place "is most holy," Ezekiel 43:12, and the glory of the Lord is full in the Temple. I like this verse; “Seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it. When these days are over it shall be, on the eighth day and thereafter, that the priests shall offer your burnt offerings and your peace offerings on the altar; and I will accept you,' says the Lord GOD,” Ezekiel 43:26-27. Now, "…make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it…and I will accept you," says the Lord. There is a river, healing waters; "flowing from under the threshold of the temple," Ezekiel 47:1. "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, wi

The people of Israel

The journey of the people of Israel is a fascinating story, and understanding it could possibly make your own life story too. It began when God called Abraham, and said to him, " Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee " Acts 7:3. He obeyed, and he left and lived in Haran, in a country they now call Israel. But God, gave him no " inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child " Acts 7:5. So, God promised that eventually the whole country would belong to him and his descendants, but these descendants of his would leave the land and live in a foreign country and there become slaves for 400 years. He said  I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and afterwards they will return to this land of Israel and worship me here. Later, Isaac was born, and Isaac had Jacob, and Jaco
