God’s “Call to You” IS a “Call From God to You”; Are You Ready? No “Call from God” Is Too Big or Too Small for You

God’s “Call to You” IS a “Call From God to You”; Are You Ready? No “Call from God” Is Too Big or Too Small for You

September 7, 2020

God’s “Call to You” IS a “Call From God to You”; Are You Ready? No “Call from God” Is Too Big or Too Small for You           

MESSAGE SUMMARY:

No interaction with the Holy Spirit is too small for you or for God, and no Spiritual outcomes are too big for you or for God. Jesus illustrates, in the “Parable of the Mustard Seed", that big things come from small beginnings. The selection, by Jesus, of His initial twelve Apostles, led to the growth of Christianity from twelve followers to more than two billion Christians. So, when God gives you a vision or He puts on your heart to start a ministry or to visit the home bound; and you think the Spirit’s is so small or inconsequential, just remember small beginnings lead to significant outcomes through the Lord. In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus commissions and promises His support to His Apostles and to us; therefore, how can any call, from the Holy Spirit, be too inconsequential or unsupported for us to embrace: “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’” Pray, listen, and be patient. After all, you have a personal relationship with God, the Creator of the Universe!

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONToday, Because of who I am in Jesus Christ, I will not be driven by Anger. Rather, I will abide in the Lord’s Forgiveness. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5).

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (ESV): Matthew 20:1-16; Philippians 2:21-30; Matthew 25:34-46; Psalms 37b:11-20.

God Will Call You to Serve Him; God’s Calls to His Service Are Never Too Small or Inconsequential

God Will Call You to Serve Him; God’s Calls to His Service Are Never Too Small or Inconsequential

God Will Call You to Serve Him; God’s Calls to His Service Are Never Too Small or Inconsequential

MESSAGE SUMMARY:  

When God gives you a vision to start a ministry or to witness to co-workers or if God calls you to serve His Kingdom, God will walk with you through the Holy Spirit. When God calls you as a follower of Jesus, and He will call you, remember that God’s calls to His service are never too small or inconsequential. Therefore, you must remember Jesus’ Parable of the Mustard Seed in Mathew 13:31-32“. . . a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree . . .”. From this parable, we learn that God will take what He asks you to do and multiply it many times. You can be sure, like Paul tells us in Romans 8:28, that when God calls you in your life that He walks with you as you strive to meet His expectations: “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.".

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONToday, I affirm that because I am in Jesus Christ, I will not be ashamed of the Gospel. I will not be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes (including me). (From Romans 1:16).

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (ESV): Mathew 13:31-34; Romans 8:26-28; Galatians 5:22-24; Psalms 26:1-12.

In the Covid-19 “New Normal” Implementation, Will You Tell God, When Called, “Hear Am I, Send Me!”?

In the Covid-19 “New Normal” Implementation, Will You Tell God, When Called, “Hear Am I, Send Me!”?

May 22, 2020

MESSAGE SUMMARY:

Do you, like many Christians, see little, spiritually, going on in your life? As a follower of Jesus, God calls you just as He called the Prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 6:8: “And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”. Therefore, as a follower of Jesus, you should be asking the question: “Am I ready for something spiritual to happen in my life; am I dressed and ready for His service?”. Are you ready to say: “Lord, here am I; send me.”? The call of the Holy Spirit to you may be diverse such as: working on planning and implementing the “new normal” in your church as Corporate Worship is redefined in the Covit-19 world; becoming a missionary in a third world country; being a Christian business leader; or taking a stand for Jesus that is not politically correct. Can you be as ready as Isaiah when he said to God’s call, in Isaiah 6:8: “Lord, here am I; send me.”? If you are not ready to be sent, why not?

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATION: Today, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my Heartlessness. Rather, I will walk in the Spirit’s fruit of Kindness. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (ESV): Romans 8:12-17; Acts 2:1-4; Genesis 46:2-4; Psalms 76:1-12.

Apostle Paul Instructs You to Make Wise Use of Your Limited Time on Earth, Seeking God’s Will for You Through the Holy Spirit

Apostle Paul Instructs You to Make Wise Use of Your Limited Time on Earth, Seeking God’s Will for You Through the Holy Spirit

March 17, 2020

MESSAGE SUMMARY:

If you believe that Christianity is just a bunch of rules and laws for you (all of which you can’t keep!), then you really don’t know what Christianity is all about. Be filled with the Holy Spirit – all of us are filled with something. With what are you filled? The Apostle Peter, in 1 Peter 4:5-6, admonishes you to be faithful to the Gospel and to live in the Spirit like God: “but they will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For this is why the gospel was preached even to those who are dead, that though judged in the flesh the way people are, they might live in the spirit the way God does.". Some people are filled with the world or the devil or alcohol or drugs or materialism or their jobs or just themselves. However, you need to be filled with the Holy Spirit. As you walk with the Holy Spirit, Paul instructs in Ephesians 5:15-17 to make wise use of our limited time on earth and to seek God’s will through the Holy Spirit: “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.". Come Holy Spirit; fill us with your presence and power. Are you filled with the Holy Spirit? If not, why not?

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONToday, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my CompulsionsRather, I will walk in the Spirit’s fruit of Patience. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

God’s Gift To You, Through His Grace, Is Important to His Kingdom and the Body of Christ

God’s Gift To You, Through His Grace, Is Important to His Kingdom and the Body of Christ

March 1, 2020

MESSAGE SUMMARY:

To each one of us, Grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. As Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 12:4-6: “Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.”. Just because one of us has a certain gift, it does not mean that your gift is not just as important in the Body of Christ. While some in the church teach that some of the gifts of the Holy Spirit have faded away and are no longer needed. “Says who?” The Bible teaches that all gifts are needed and are necessary if the Body of Christ to function properly. The Apostle Peter tells us, in 1 Peter 4:10, how we, as followers of Jesus, should consider our gifts from God: “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.". In addition to God’s gift of your Salvation, through your Faith and His Grace, what other personal gifts Has God given you; and how are you using God’s gift to you?

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONI affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, Jesus, I AM A CHILD OF GOD. Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God-- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. (John 1:12f).

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (ESV): 1 Corinthians 3:10-17; Romans 12:3-8; 1 Peter 4:10-11; Psalms 28:1-9.
