The seal of my apostleship!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi
This is my answer to those who ask me why I preach, and this they ask because they think I have no right to, but the scripture says, "how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" Romans 10:15.

What’s my job?

I am God’s messenger, an apostle if you like, responsible to no mere man, but Christ himself, and that I do is enlist you for the race, so that you may run your race too, and run much so to win.

"For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more" 1 Corinthians 9:19. I have freely and happily become a servant of any and all so that I can win them to Christ.

Do I have rights at all?

Of course I do.  I can claim the same power or privileges the other apostles have to burden you. Instead of me working, I can make demands of you to give towards my needs, pay my expenses, and that I eat your food, and this you will do because God commands you to, "...that Christian workers should be paid by those they help. Those who do the plowing and threshing should expect some share of the harvest. We have planted good spiritual seed in your souls. Is it too much to ask, in return, for mere food and clothing? 1 Corinthians 9:9 -11.

In the same way the Lord has given orders that those who preach the Gospel should be supported by those who accept it. Paul support this by saying, "... I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me" Galatians 4:15.

"If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ" 1 Corinthians 9:12.

I would rather die of hunger than lose the satisfaction I get from preaching to you without charge.

What is my pay?

It is the special joy I get from preaching the Gospel without expense to anyone, never demanding my rights.

What’s the purpose?

That I win you, that you fight on, and run until you obtain.

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

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
