And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’
–John 4:36-37 (NKJV Strong’s,)
Leading someone to Jesus is one of the most important things we are called to do. It’s so fun to be a part of bringing someone to eternal life! We don’t always have a chance to lead them to the Lord, but every day you should have a chance to talk about Jesus with the people around you.
What you told someone yesterday is what may bring them to Jesus today.
Don’t see yourself as just another human on this earth. Remember you are a royal priesthood, a chosen child of God. If you don’t plan the seed of faith for salvation today, who will reap it tomorrow?
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
–John 4:23-24 (NKJV Strong’s,)
This is how we do it. By recognizing that worship is physical but yet a spiritual thing. Secondly by walking in truth. That means purity in our relationship with God.
He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
–John 3:36 (NKJV)
Is Gods wrath and judgment on people?. Not while you live in the body whose eyes are reading this.
Once you depart your body, like a foot us pulled out of a boot, your decision to know or reject Jesus is eternal life or death and destruction. Whatever you do, choose life!
Invading the Impossible
Lord, teach us to pray.
Jesus’ disciples asked Him, “Lord, teach us to pray.”
In response, Jesus taught them nothing of mysticism, religious pretense, or meditation. Nothing of bizarre physical contortions or memorized incantations attended by clouds of incense.
But He did teach them something about violence. Jesus was very clear about it: Prayer is a matter of war—prayer is about invasion, assault, and force.
On earth-side, things may seem impenetrable, yet from the heaven-side, activated by prayer, there is a spiritual violence that can invade and overthrow the impossible.
Encouraging Word by Jack Hayford
Choose a good reputation over great riches;
being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold.
–Proverbs 22:1 (NLT)
A great reputation is something you build. You do it every day.
People like us when we are consistent and reliable. Start your life of being a caring promise keeper today. As you do this, you’ll begin to realize the benefits.
It is with sadness we say farewell to Billy Graham. The man famous for telling his generation about Jesus Christ, our sin, and how to be right with God. It’s all about Jesus Christ. He passed at 99 years old on 21 Feb. 2018.
Millions of people came to Jesus through his powerful preaching of the love of God. He wasn’t a Kathryn Kuhlman or an Oral Roberts with huge meetings were the Holy Spirit moved through healing the sick or raising the dead. Nor was he flashy about getting people to walk in the abundance prosperity that other ministers did. But this man of God created a ruckus in Heaven! We know that the angels rejoice when another person comes to Jesus (Luke 15:7). Billy Graham the soul winner of his generation. Billy gave people advice in life about death he said
- Accept the fact that you will die.
- Make arrangements
- Make provisions for those you are leaving behind
- Most importantly, make an appointment with God.
Billy is with our Heavenly Father now. Now it is time for others to rise and take the message of eternal life and freedom that only Jesus brings to this world.
Mark 8:12 (NLT)
When he heard this, he sighed deeply in his spirit and said, “Why do these people keep demanding a miraculous sign? I tell you the truth, I will not give this generation any such sign.”
We want to see miracles. Miracles are for today and are a sign of Gods hand on your life and church. In Mark 8, people are pushing the Lord Jesus to perform more miracles. It’s interesting that verse 12 says He sighed deeply when people asked for signs.
Of course Jesus can perform miracles but in this case He left. Why? Miracles are a sign of Gods presence, faith, and people who trust God. Miracles and signs are the Fathers way of broadcasting His goodness. Miracles are not entertainment.
Let your faith be strong, believe God, and walk by faith. These other things shall follow.
