Jesus sends out the Twelve Disciples

And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits, Mark 6:7.

For the first time the disciples were commissioned to go out on their own and preach, "that men should repent," Mark 6:12, the same message He himself Jesus, was preaching, a message of repentance. If there is one thing you need do is to look for a true understanding of God’s wishes for you, that you should seek after, not to unreasonably follow traditions and doctrines of men.

As they went he instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a staff - no bread, no traveling bag, no money in their belts, but to wear sandals and not put on an extra coat. And he said to them, "Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that place. If any place does not welcome you or listen to you, when you leave there, shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them." Mark 6:11.  

So he sent them to preach, he gave them authority over unclean spirits and to cast them out, he instructed what they’d take and how they’d behave themselves. If you’re a minister of Christ people want to gladly hear you despite their reservations. "Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and OBSERVED HIM; and when he heard him, he did many things, and HEARD HIM GLADLY" Mark 6:18-20.

So under authority, the disciples went out preaching, casting out demons and anointing many sick people with oil, and healed them, and afterwards "the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught," Mark 6:30.

So the apostles regrouped, and reported to him all things that they had done and taught,

"And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. And they departed into a desert place by ship privately." Mark 6:31-32. So they went away in the boat by themselves to a remote place.

God is a rewarder; when you do well He says, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

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

Why is finding God so difficult?

  God says, ‘Here I am’ My hands stretched all day long for you, but “... when I called, you did not answer; When I spoke, you did not hear, But did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight," Isaiah 65:12. He said you’ve walked in a way that is not good, i.e. according to you own thoughts. That’s why I "was found by those who did not seek Me." ‘Here I am!‘ The good thing with God is he reveals himself to you, but sadly we choose not to see, seek, listen nor to find him. To “find God” is an expression that can mean different things to different people. For some, is getting religion, whatever religion that may be. For others, to “find God” means to “clean up one’s life,” usually with his help. In any case, to “find God” involves a change in someone’s attitude and behaviour. Biblically speaking, to find God means to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is only through Jesus that anyone can come to God (John 14:6), and receiving Christ results in a

You are a chosen generation

Reverend Muzembi  " Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded " 1 Peter 2:6 KJV Christ, is very precious to God. He is a chief corner stone upon this spiritual house God is building. You’re precious to God too, and " as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ " 1 Peter 2:5. We’re priests, who offer to God those things that please him - you matter so much to God. Christ is precious to you who believe in God through him, for without him we can do nothing, all our royalty is because him, and to those who reject him still he’s  precious, that when iniquity abounds they may fall. But you are not like them, for  through Christ you have been chosen by God himself, you are God's very own - all this so that you may show to others how God called you o
