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 Spectacles of Love

We know God through love, loving one another.  "He who does not love does not know God, for God is love," 1 John 4:8. "Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another," 1 John 4:11 Only love gives us the assurance we want, that we know him, we have no fear, but boldness on the day of judgment. But love  aught to have been perfected among us to see us through. He who claims he knows God must first wear his spectacles of love, “And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him,” 1 John 4:16.  Jesus said it’s a new commandment, and you as a believer should realise how important it is to love, to love your brother also. One can’t see as they should without the spectacles of love. Who is a liar? One whose speech is cheap, measly and worthless; who says I love God, yet hates his brother or sister, that kind of love or faith is substandard, is below what is required. There is yet

The Wedding at Cana

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him, John 2:11 KJV. The first time Jesus performed a miracle (revealed his glory) was at a wedding in Cana. Jesus' mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. Wine ran out, and Jesus' mother told him, " They have no more wine ." She went to him anticipating a miracle, and Jesus said, " Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come " John 2:4. But she tells the servants anyway, " Whatever He says to you, do it ."  This you should also know my friend, tell him your need anyway, and " Do whatever he tells you ." But be fully aware of the divine timing also. The timing by which waters are stirred up or the spirit moves is set by the Father. Jesus said to them, " Fill the waterpots with water. " And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, " Dr

Jesus is Rejected at Nazareth!

Then Jesus left the wilderness of Judea, where Satan tempted him for forty days, and " returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region. And He taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all. So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. " Luke 4:14-16 NKJV. Before, full of the Holy Spirit, he spent forty days in the wilderness being tempted by the devil, and now he returns to Galilee, in the power of the Spirit to begin his ministry. He taught in other synagogues, being glorified by all, but here in Nazareth, where He was brought up, is rejected. They handed to him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: " The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To
