The glory of this light!

Reverend LC Muzembi
When you say you’re born again, it means you have received Christ, you are a Christian, and have been taught by someone, the word, and two things happened to you;  "repentance towards God, and faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ" Acts 20:21.  You’ve turned to God through our Lord Jesus Christ, or Faith in Christ.

I was educated in this way under Andrew Wutawunashe, at whose feet I learned to follow our God very carefully. Since then I’ve been zealous towards God, as Paul says, just as everyone is trying to do.
It’s a journey to know God; how do you find it yourself?

As for me it came to pass, that, one day, I also saw this light. When the true light of God shines upon your darkness, you go blind on other things. Paul said, "I could not see for the glory of that light" Acts 22:11. He aborted his mission to persecute the believers.

The prophet Isaiah said, "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined" Isaiah 9:2.

This light should shine on you too my friend, it should shine up on your darkness, to make you see properly, and know, that you serve God as you should.

Paul says, "brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified" Acts 20:32.

Now, I help new believers and those growing in the Lord to believe God through this grace. And the word of his grace, releases  in you faith which causes you to obtain. It picks you out among many, it makes you render service according to God’s own will and ways, not your ways. He’s not God if we tell him what to do.

Knowing this is important, it builds you up, it makes you receive an inheritance among those sanctified.

I said I testify to all, two things;

  1. "repentance towards God, and 
  2. faith towards our Lord Jesus Christ" Acts 20:21.  

Faith in Christ is it which guides us, it justifies us before God, that we’re walking aright, and after this way, we worship God, and have hope towards God, the hope of resurrection, even the promise of eternal life.

We follow Christ; he’s the way to come to the father, we’ve access by him. Our Christian ethical behaviours are measured by him, he’s the standard bearer. We measure ourselves with him, and our standards shouldn’t be lower, but greater, he said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father" John 14:12.
He went on, and while there, he poured upon us the precious gift of the Holy Ghost, who we now work with. We are not alone in this business.

Ananias, said to Saul, "Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour [he said] I looked up upon him. And he said, 
The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard" Acts 22:12-15.

Com’on my friend, receive your sight, receive the Holy Spirit also. The glory of that light shown on you so that you should operate in his will; a sign that he has chosen you, to know his will, that you see the Just One, and be his witness, of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come.

God bless,
Laurence

The weapons of our warfare!

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong" 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV

The weapons of our warfare are mighty through God, they are in the simplicity of Christ, in the fruit of the Spirit; "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law" Galatians 5:22-23.

"If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities" 2 Corinthians 11:30. "So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye m…

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts!

Pursue love for if you don't love, you’re nothing; love the brotherhood!

No matter what you say, what you believe, and what you do, you’re nothing without love.

" Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away" 1 Corinthians 13:8. Yes all these will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever, "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity" 1 Corinthians 13:13.

If you didn’t love others, with all that you do, you would only be making noise.

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things" 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. With this we know we lov…
