Jesus desires through love to stretch people into a greater depth of commitment and BELIEIVING. BELIEVNIG is to be living, growing, and maturing, so that we can bear fruit for Christ glory. Question? Have we become stagnant, like water which has been sitting for too long? Christ’s desire is that we BELIEVE and to become channels of living waters to others? Ask God to stretch your circle of BELIEVING today! AMEN!
The woman at the well heard, BELIEVED, and testified to other of her faith in Jesus Christ. Then the community head and BELIEVED and because of that they received eternal life. Christ proclaimed that “I AM the Bread of life” for all who would BELIEVE they would also receive. Peter would not walk away but confessed and BELIEVED that Christ has the words of eternal life. Now it is our tern what do we believe during this Christmas season.
Many people BELIEVED somewhat in the baby Jesus, but when they look into the manger, do they BELIEVE in their hearts that He is the “Son of God”, the “Christ” the “Anointed One” of God, the “Immanuel” who chose to come and to live amongst us and fill us with the Holy Spirit. This is the same question that the Jews struggled with and the people of the world STRUGGLE WITH TODAY. Remember what we BELIEVE will determine one’s eternal destination.
God greatest gift, that He desires to give with all His heart, is that we would BELIEVE on His Son Jesus Christ, whom He sent to us, so that we may know Him, understand Him, BELIEVE in Him with our hearts. God wants us all to receive the most precious gift this season, which is His love, grace and mercy, which will come to all who BEIEVE. This I promise to you, just BELIEVE, and receive today!
A man said to Jesus, “Lord I BELIEVE, help my UNBELEIF” (Mark 9:23-24). This too may be our cry before the Lord today. Belief is a discipline that leads into a deeper person relation with Jesus Christ. It connects us to His will for our lives. Our daily prayer should be, Lord help me to BELIEVE and to have the faith to walk out your will in my life today.
Mary Magdalene encounter the truth, BELIEVED, and rush back to the disciples to tell them that Jesus “is alive”, but at first, they did not BELIEVE, but Christ entered into their presence, face to face and they now truly BELIEVED in their hearts that “He is alive”. This is the Good News, the reason for the season and we need to proclaim it today. I exhort you, BELIEVE for “He is alive”.
The truth is that BELIEVING is receiving. Remember that Jesus is the reason for the season, and we need to come to the place of faith and that by BELIEVING we are able to stand before a Holy God because He given to us His righteous One. That Righteous One has a name, JESUS CHRIST, and all we must do is BELIEVE. Question? What keeping you from BELIEVING?
Life is full of challenges both in the world and with the BELIEVING in Christ Jesus. Believing is always under attack by various enemies, but the key is to stand firm on the Rock of Christ (The anointed One) and BELIEVE that He is pouring forth His living waters to all. BELIEVING is a daily act of faith, trust, and hope. Today rise up and stand firm, BELEIVING in what He has already done and what He will continue to do in our lives in the future.
People love to challenge each other when it comes to faith in Christ Jesus. Most conversation can be boiled down to two positions, unbelieve, or believing. Our choice that we face today is, will we believe in God, like Job, King David, King Hezekiah, or be like Job’s counsellors, Sennacherib, and his army, “it’s our move and choice”.
The CHURCH is Christ ordained body, which He desires to be ONE with. Why? Because He loves her and gave His life for the CHURCH (the called-out ones) and one day soon, He is coming back for the CHURCH so that He can take her and present her to the Father as His eternal Bide.
A disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ, we are part of the Firstborn whose name is kept in the CHURCH registry in heaven. The disciple needs to get a bigger vision and focus. One, a disciple is a “discipline one” in Christ who has been “called out” from the world. Secondly, we need to be part of a local church for growing and maturing. Thirdly, we are part of a worldwide CHURCH body that Christ Jesus is the head of which soon He is coming back for. The CHURCH is His BELOVED!
The book of Revelation needs to be read as a book that was given to the Churches so that they would prepare themselves for the Groom who soon will come for His Bride. People we need to hear what the Spirit is trying to say to the CHURCHES and in this day and age, we need to tune out the noise of the world and tune into hearing the voice of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is proclaiming now to the CHURCHES, that it is time to hear and to get ready. (Rev. 2:7, 11, 17, 23, 29, 3:6, 13, 22)
It is time that we become part of Christ building program, to commit whole heartedly to Him, to be people who are “called out” from the world, different and unique one’s. To become part of His living body the CHURCH. The key is to “come out”, then to be equipped, so that we then can go back to others with the Goods News of Jesus Christ. Jesus wants us, to be connected with the Power of the Holy Spirit where we serve together as CALLED OUT ONE’S, to “calls out” more people to be part of Christ body the CHURCH.
The key to understanding the purpose of the CHURCH; one, that its focus is to call people out of bondage and destruction of the world. Two, to equip and nurture the people. Three, to prepare the people so that they can be sent out to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others. Finally, to understand, that Christ wants to add to His CHURCH daily through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Called as a Church, to work together as His church, where He has appointed to us various gifts so that we can plant, water, equip, nurture, and share the Good News of Jesus Christ to the lost world. Remember: We are called to “server together” as a community of believers in faith, under His headship.
We need to look into the mirror and asked what have I BUILT? Does it glorifying myself or is my BUILDING (life) bring glory to God? Challenges often are there to help us to look and to refocus on the Master Builder Jesus Christ. Jesus will take all that we are and if we put it all into His hands, He will transform us into a unique temple that He desires to fill with His Holy Spirit. Today is the day to rise in Christ and together let’s BUILD!
We are all BUILDING something whether it is physically, emotionally and spiritual and Jesus through the Gospel caution people to “hear and do” what He teaches. He exhorts us that if we do, He has promised us that we will be like a wise BUILDER whose house is established on Him as the true “Rock foundation”. Question? How and what are we BUILDING today and for the future?
Something is being built in all our lives either by ourselves or by others. The questions need to be asked, what kind of a foundation are we building on and secondly have we given our lives over to the Chief Master BUILDER who has a wonderful blueprint (Bible), that is unique and special, for who we can be in Christ Jesus and for His Kingdom. Today, make a decision to put your life into the hands of the Chief Master BUILDER! Amen!
God is not trying to build our kingdom; He desires that we come together with Him and BUILD His Kingdom and eternal place which He is asking us to become a part of forever. What God desire more than anything is to BUILD us into such a person, that we glorify His Name and His Kingdom together.
Let us not focus on the destruction or captivity we may find ourselves in, but to be like Ezra (a teacher), Nehemiah (a cup bearer), David (a shepherd) and Solomon (a king) and respond to our Lord Jesus Christ and say, “ let us rise up and BUILD” (Neh 2:17-20). Do not focus on the despair and destruction around us, focus on the Lord who desires in His heart to BUILD and REBUILD our lives.
We are challenged by life to keep building, but this needs to be done in all areas of one’s life (Physically, Emotional & Spiritually). To be a builder we need wisdom and understanding when comes to building or rebuilding our lives. Discipleship is a process of building our lives into the likeness of Christ and His Kingdom. Even if things look desolate or like waste land or destroyed, it is never to late to BUILD. I want to prophecy that in the midst of chaos that we see, the discouragement and destruction that is all around us, this is the day to “rise up and BUILD”. Jesus is our Master BUILDER. Amen!

The disciple is challenge by Christ to be living BRANCHES and from that relationship, we then through pruning and time we will bear fruit that will last, for God’s glory, but if we are not fruit producers there is a warning. Question: When we think of different season, where is the church at when it comes to John 15:1-11 and Romans 11:16-25? Are we living branches of fruitfulness or fruitless branches or dead branches or branches that are going to be burned?

A disciple must keep his live in balance with the Word of God and the will of God by being filled each day with the Power of God.
God still is calling today people to Himself and to the ministry, we just need to have our eyes, ears and heart open to His voice.
The disciple does not need to lean on their own ability but to lean on God's ability and power. We are made overcomers because of God's ability flowing through us by the Holy Spirit. Our understanding of the depth of God’s ability comes by walking with Him. We learn more about faith and the importance of walking in His will.
All disciples must make a personal decision to follow Christ in the waters of baptism; this act is to be a sign and testimony that we have died to self and now live totally for Christ. But the other side of the coin is that we need to be baptized with the fire of the Holy Spirit to purify and empower so that we can be an anointed vessel for Christ Jesus to this lost world.Check out this great video

It is needful that one gives testimony and declares before man that they are commitment to Christ Jesus. It is taking a stand, proclaiming, testifying to other that Jesus Christ is Lord and Saviour of your Life. What are our words and actions declaring to others today.
We are to be quick to hear but slow to speak. With our hearts, we need to come to the place where we can hear the still small voice of God calling us out from this world to do His will here on earth. Do we really hear, do we tune in to hear physically and spiritually? Do we have wax, that block our hearing – do we need to clean them out (spiritually)? Our ears are the doors to our heart to hear God with and to be taught and comforted by the Holy Spirit. Check out this great video.
Disciples – we are under a binding covenant with Jesus Christ. Communion reminds us of our commitment to this New Covenant we have made together with Him. Remember a covenant has binding conditions to them that both parties must follow. God is the issuer of the covenant contract – He is the keeper of the covenant – God sent His Son as the Mediator of a new covenant – the Holy Spirit is the seal that the covenant has been agreed upon.
