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

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

When I am weak, then I am strong!

What is it in which you are inferior to other people, to other believers, other churches, etc? Is it your lack, need, illness, or weakness? Paul says, "for in nothing was I behind the most eminent apostles, though I am nothing," "…most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me," 2 Corinthians 12:9 "And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, " and be found of such as you do not wish; with "contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, backbitings, whisperings, conceits, tumults," 2 Corinthians 12:20. “… I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong," 2 Corinthians 12:10.  He says I take pleasure in infirmities, "lest, … my God will humble me among you, and I shall mourn for many who have sinned before and have not repented of the unclean

The Word of life!

The word of life is eternal life preached, manifested, or exhibited to you. The choice is yours my friend, to want to look upon, touch, hear, declare or bear witness of the same, but “whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him," 1 John 2:5. The message of the word of life is, eternal life, that God is light, and that we have fellowship with Him if we walk just as He walked. And now because you have the light of God, "darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining," 1 John 2:8. There is no cause for stumbling in you. The apostle says, “I have written to you, … Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one," 1 John 2:14.  It is the word of truth, an anointing,  "the same teaches you concerning all things," 1 John 2:27. Let this truth abide in you, and you abide in Him. He who does the will of God abides forever! "We have an Advoc
