II Corinthians 4 – Persecution unto Glorification

Thursday, February 24th, 2011


February 24, 2011

There are two opposing forces fighting for us, the one true God and the god of this world. Both promise things and both bring them to pass but only our one true God brings good, perfect, loving things. He brings peace and contentment. He brings joy and riches. He sent his one true son the Christ Jesus that we may have truth and life and riches. We are earthen vessels, corruptable and fleeting, that we may not say our power is from us but rather that it is from God eternal; the excellency of our power is of God.
So not matter what we face let us turn our thought and focus to God and let our mouths be full of His grace and power that we may spread His glory rather than the that of lesser idols.

Peace through Christ

Jesus Christ bought back our lives from the thief, from the devil. His payment was his perfect, unblemished blood. He was our ransom and our redemption; through him we are now justified in the sight of God. There is no emnity, no middle partition between us and God because of Jesus’ work. And not only are we righteous and justified before God, but we have peace and access with and to God, so much so that God declares we have boldness in our access to him. Amen!

Why Jesus Christ? The need for redemption

Thursday, October 29th, 2009


October 29, 2009

Jesus Christ is our savior but why does man need a savior? Because of Adam’s transgression regarding God’s commandment, man no longer had the loving relationship with God he was intended; moreover man was now subject unto the devil and unto death. God was not one to destroy, instead he worked up the plan of redemption, that through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the spilling of his blood, man’s ransom would be payed and fulfilled. Our covenant with God now is not one of flesh and works such as the law was, but now is an eternal one, based on faith wherein we are called God’s children and fellow heirs with Jesus Christ. This is the need that man has for Jesus Christ, that man may have a relationship with God and no longer be subject to the Devil.
