Are you Generous?

Do you make a point of being generous to those around you? Generosity isn’t just about money.

Generosity can be in the form of:

  • Spending time with others.
  • Sharing your skills or expertise.
  • Being a good listener.
  • Taking an interest in people.
  • Being compassionate.
  • Making quality time for your family.
  • Helping out a co-worker.

Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.
2 Corinthians 9:11 NLT

Your GREATNESS is not what you have, it’s what you GIVE.

One of the joy in helping humanity is that it is more blessed to give than to receive.

Thankful Thursday

Thank God…

  • For WHO God is.
  • For HOW He has shown Himself faithful in the past.
  • For WHAT He has provided.
  • For WHOM He has placed in our lives.
  • For WHERE He will guide and provide in the future.

If God still means anything to us, then praise and thanksgiving is the only way to show it.

SANCTIFICATION

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: 1 Thessalonians 4:3KJV

SANCTIFICATION also means Holiness.

SANCTIFICATION is the removal of all tentacles of sin.

SANCTIFICATION is a relationship with God. It is a bond unto Holiness.

SANCTIFICATION is the separation from evil and dedication unto God.

SANCTIFICATION is the work of Grace.

BE CAREFUL OF THE FRIENDS YOU MAKE OR WALK WITH, DON’T ALLOW ANYONE TO CORRUPT YOUR MIND AND WAY OF LIFE.

HOW TO BE TO SANCTIFIED?

THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD:

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
John 17:17 KJV

THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS:
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1 John 1:7 KJV

THROUGH FERVENT PRAYERS:
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Matthew 5:6 KJV

THROUGH DIVINE HEART SURGERY:
For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:24‭-‬26 KJV

REMEMBER, JESUS IS THE SANCTIFIER AND WE ARE THE SANCTIFIED.

But before a person can be sanctified he or she must:
Accept Jesus as his/her Lord and Saviour, and receive Him into his/her life (John 1:12)
Believe unto righteousness with your heart (Romans 10:10a)
Confess with his/her mouth. With the mouth, confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:10b)

Delightful Tuesday: Just Like Every Other Day

Wishing you a delightful week ahead..

Beware a Cup that’s Full

When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.

And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar–jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
Matthew 16:13‭-‬14‭, ‬16‭-‬23 KJV

Immediately Peter had been commended and exalted by Jesus. He thought he had become “the man” of the moment, he must have thought to have known it all not knowing that the devil was waiting patiently for him to use him.

You recall Peter also did similar thing when Jesus told him that he’d deny Him three times before the rooster crows. But thank God for Jesus, He had already prayed ahead for him.

Just like Peter we can easily be carried away by so many things, we shouldn’t be so full of ourselves with any slight opportunity, success that comes our way, neither by fame or status. We shouldn’t let our achievements get to us.

Let us learn from the experiences of Peter and be careful to handle a cup that’s full so as not to fall prey to the devil because he prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for whom to devour.

A cup that’s full can be liken to someone who is in a position of power and authority, someone who has attain some level of achievement or success.

People like King Saul, Samson and Judas Iscariot are example of Bible characters who didn’t fulfill God’s purpose for their lives just because they were not mindful of a cup that’s full.

We should have at the back of our mind that the mishandling of such cup can cause an irreparable damage thereby bringing a person from grace to grass.

With this, we should beware of a cup that’s full and handle it with utmost caution and humility.
