DON’T HOLD BACK! SHARE!
(Be Stirred To Share The Gospel Because You Can!)

TO THE BIBLE 2 Corinthians 3:5-6 GNB

“…There is nothing in us that allows us to claim that we are capable of doing this work. The capacity we have comes from God; it is he who made us capable of serving the new covenant, which consists not of a written law but of the Spirit. The written law brings death, but the Spirit gives life.”

LET’S TALK➡
God has made you a competent minister of reconciliation, and there should be no discouragement in this world strong enough to stop you from preaching the Gospel. You should be able to open your mouth and declare His Word of salvation boldly anywhere you find yourself. Let those you come in contact with you know that God isn’t mad at them, and that they can now embrace life through the Gospel.

The Prophet Joel, in the Old Testament, foretold what would happen in the lives of God’s people when they receive the Holy Spirit. He said, “…your sons and your daughters shall prophesy…” (Joel 2:28). Notice he didn’t say they shall be quiet, but that they shall prophesy, i.e., speak words of power. You see, this is one of the many signs that you’ve received the Holy Spirit. You become passionate about preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and you preach it with boldness, because it’s like fire shut up in your bones.

Maybe you’re experiencing some persecution for preaching the Gospel, and right now, you feel like giving up. No, don’t be discouraged, and don’t stop preaching! When Jeremiah preached the Word of God, he was severely persecuted and even thrown in prison for all his trouble. But in spite of the pressure and temptation to give up, he exclaimed “…I said, “I will not make mention of Him, nor speak anymore in His name.” But His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not” (Jeremiah 20:9). So don’t give up or give in; refuse to be quiet. Let the fire of the Gospel spread from you to everyone in your world!

GO DEEPER

1 Corinthians 9:16
For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!

2 Timothy 4:2
Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of Season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

PRAY🙋‍♂

Dear Father, I thank you for your Word in my heart is as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I’ll preach it everywhere I go. My words are anointed to produce life for everyone who listens, to the glory and
praise of the Father, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 3RD JANUARY, 2021, THE WORD AND YOUR EXPERIENCE

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 3RD JANUARY, 2021, THE WORD AND YOUR EXPERIENCE

PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME;

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses (1 Timothy 6:12).

There’re people who say they pray and don’t receive answers. Some others lament that they gave so much to God, but never received much in return. There’re also those who say, “I’ve been speaking the Word over my body for a long time, yet I’m sick.” If you’ve found yourself in a similar situation, here’s something you should know: Your experience should never affect your confidence in the Word. The Word never fails.

The Word of God is truth, irrespective of what your experiences might be. Just because it’s been several days or months and there’s still no change as you expect doesn’t mean the Word isn’t working. You must understand that Christian growth and maturity is progressive and there’s a fight of faith.

There’s also the issue of your limited knowledge of the Word. Perhaps you don’t know enough on the subject you’re dealing with. Therefore, what you’re supposed to do is to keep feeding on the Word and exercising your faith. It’s a training.

If, for example, at a certain time in your life, it took you a while to use your faith to accomplish a certain goal, don’t be discouraged. Rather, grow your faith to the level where it can produce that same result anytime you want it! If it took you three months the first time, tell yourself, “Next time, I’ll get it in a week or even less.” Then, begin to study and meditate on the Word with your new goal in focus.

That’s how you train yourself in the Word and in the faith life; you don’t give up! You stand your ground, confident that God’s Word will prevail over circumstances and put you over all the time.

PRAYER

Dear Father, thank you for the veracity of your Word. Irrespective of the adversities I face, I stay on your Word! Every unfavourable situation aligns with my nature as an associate of the God-kind. I keep my eyes on the Word, and I win always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING

Rhapsody of Realities 1st January, 2021

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things (Matthew 6:31-32).

Rhapsody of Realities 1st January, 2021

Why should anyone read this and still fret about anything in life? The one who has told you not to worry about tomorrow is the owner of tomorrow; He’s aware that everything you require for an excellent life has already been made available. So, refuse to be burdened with stress and anxiety.

Don’t worry about your work, family, business, finances, or anything. Worry is fear in disguise. It’s fear of negative possibilities; the imminence of unwanted outcomes. Fear attracts its images. If you keep worrying about getting sick, for example, soon enough, you’ll fall sick.

The cure for worrying is living in God’s Word. Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28- 30). Philippians 4:6 says, “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

Act on the Word. Rather than worry, receive whatever you require, and live in the consciousness of Christ’s victory, grace and abundant provisions. Anything short of a life of absolute joy and fulfilment in Christ Jesus isn’t God’s best for you.

Hebrews 4:3 says, “For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said….” God finished all His works from the foundation of the world before He made man and rested from His works. That’s the same life He’s given us; a life free of struggles.

PRAYER

Dear Father, thank you for dispelling every form of anxiety in my heart through the Word. I have already overcome Satan, the world and every crisis, being conscious that the greater One lives in me. I live in the peace and provisions of Christ. You’ve perfected all that concerns me. The peace of God which passes all understanding mantles my heart and mind, in Christ Jesus. Amen.
