A new normal

By On Monday, 16th September 2013

You have heard that it was said…But I say to you…

Jesus called us to go the other way; he gave us a different kind of normal. Exhorting us to go the direction that is contrary to what we feel/think is right, contrary to what is popular, contrary to how we were raised, contrary to what is socially acceptable.

Eye for eye tooth for tooth, is that going to get us anywhere? Here’s what I propose if someone strikes you, stand there and take it. If someone drags you to court and sues for the shirt off your back, gift wrap your best coat and make a present of it. And if someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life. No more tit for tat stuff. Live generously. Mathew 5:38 (The Message)

JESUS THE EXCLUSIVE WAY-(PART 1)

By On Monday, 16th September 2013

John 14:6 “Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.”


Jesus here makes quite an exclusive declaration, wherein He defines Himself by three elements, viz., the way, the truth and the life, and immediately links these three elements with His function as a mediator in the statement that follows; “no man comes unto the Father but by Me”. In order to understand the exclusiveness which this declaration bears on Jesus, we shall attempt to separately link the mediation function of Jesus with these three elements.

Blessings Redefined

The evening of Saturday the 7th of September saw us go through the Beatitudes with Pastor Calisto at Saturday PM. I first heard the word beatitudes in a CRE class when I was in primary school; I remember being specifically intrigued by the word. I have heard it preached and discussed several times after that. However, true to itself the word of God is living and active and as I listened to Pastor Calisto new thoughts began to form in my head, almost as if I was hearing about the beatitudes for the first time. Hold that thought.

RICH RICH RICH

It will be great when we are dead.

That's what people think the Christian faith is about. Especially those of us who have never really experienced God in their lives. They think that it's "Pie in the sky after you die".

People feel that to be a Christian is to miss out on all the fun and be tied down to a poor, boring life full of restrictions.

But that's not what our faith is like. See, your life is better when God is in it. In every single way, you will succeed more in your life if you follow Christ.

DO NOT WORRY

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry ...." Matt. 6:25ff

It is interesting that when u worry you cease to work effectively; in effect, worry tops your mental activities and in a way becomes your top priority. And as you continue to entertain worry in ua mind, you find uaself wasting alot of ua productive time, and eventually u realize that you havent gained anything by so worrying (Cf. verse 27)

Do not let worry to become ua priority. Cast out fear with faith, worry with work. Our Lord Jesus Christ desires that we live a sound minded and productive life that is dominated not by anxiety and worry, but with fervency for work.

Let us therefore like Him say, "My Father works, and so do I" John 5:17
