Stay Clean With The Word And The Holy Spirit.

Published

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Peter 1:2 RSV

“Chosen and destined by God the Father and sanctified by the Spirit for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood: May grace and peace be multiplied to you.”

LET’S TALK

If your mind isn’t constantly renewed and sanctified by God’s Word, it would occasionally pick up the wrong stuff and act them out. This is because the carnal pictures, images, words, ideas, and imaginations that were in your mind before you were born again, don’t automatically leave your mind! You’d have to replace them with God’s holy thoughts, His holy words, and the manifestation of His Kingdom. His Word is the divine cleanser as Jesus said in John 15:3 (AMP): “You are cleansed and pruned already, because of the word which I have given you [the teachings I have discussed with you].”

After you’re born again, the Spirit of God uses the Word of God to take the “dirt” out of your life. He cleanses your mind, because even though your spirit is born again and alive to God, your mind still needs to be renewed: “…Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:2).

Then in John 17:17, He said, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” God’s Word displaces unrighteousness from a person’s heart and replaces it with God’s righteousness. It wipes out fear and replaces it with faith. Colossians 3:16 tells us, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom….” Those desires to make the wrong choices, or to go in the way of the world and act like you used to before coming to Christ, can only be gotten rid of through God’s Word. Therefore, cleanse yourself with God’s Word, and stay pure in Him today and always.

Go Deeper: Psalm 119:9; John 15:3; John 17:17

Pray

Dear Father, I thank you for the sanctification of my mind through the ministry of your Word and Holy Spirit. My focus is on your Word and as I give it my attention, the Word cleanses and sanctifies my mind, getting rid of everything that’s inconsistent with your perfect will, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

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

BRING THEM BACK!

Be Concerned For Those Who May Have Strayed Away

Rhapsody of Realities TEEVO 5TH January 2021.

TO THE BIBLE Luke 15:23-24

“…Bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found….”

LET’S TALK

“Speaking of Jamie, I don’t think I’ve seen him in Church for a while; perhaps I will give him a call?” “Better yet, let’s go visit him at his place; I’m sure he will appreciate the visit,” Tom suggested to Phil.

n a church, particularly one with a large congregation, it’s possible for some members to be inconsistent in their attendance; some may even have stopped coming altogether. This may not be immediately obvious, especially if the church is always full during the services.

As Christians and soul winners, we should be concerned enough to know if anyone in our congregation has strayed away or fallen by the wayside. In Luke 15, the Lord Jesus told the parable of a shepherd with one hundred sheep. One of them got missing, and he left the ninety-nine in the wilderness to search for the missing sheep. When he found it, he carried it home rejoicing, and invited his friends and neighbours to celebrate with him. Then, Jesus said, “…Likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance” (Luke 15:7).

Jesus was preaching here to the Jews. He was talking to them about the lost. Understand that He wasn’t talking about one who had never come to the Lord, but one who had strayed away. There’s a difference between the one who has never been inside (the church) and the one who was inside, but strayed away. Remember, Jesus was dealing with Old Testament church here; so He wasn’t referring to the lost sinners of the world.

Matthew 10:5-6 says, “These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, saying: “Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” The Lord is sending you today to that brother or sister who no longer comes to church. Don’t give up on them; find them, intercede for them and win them back. When you bring them back, the Bible says there’ll be great joy in heaven. This is something you have to do.

Ephesians 3:14-17; Galatians 4:19; Galatians 6:1

Pray

Dear Father, thank you for making me genuinely concerned about your children who have strayed from the way. I pray that Christ be formed in them, and that they’d be established, rooted and grounded in your love, being fully persuaded that in you alone lie their joy and total fulfilment, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south (Psalm 75:6).

For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south

PROMOTE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 4TH JANUARY, 2020

For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south (Psalm 75:6).

When God puts you in a particular job or business, His interest isn’t about the office or your designation. What matters to Him is how effectively you’re using your office to promote His righteousness. He wants you passionate for the Gospel, and the establishment of His Kingdom in the hearts of men and nations of the earth.

Everywhere you are, be busy for the Lord. Stand for Him. You’re His ambassador, and a minister of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:20-21). What counts the most in your life is what you do with the Gospel, for the salvation of men, regardless of your vocation.

The Apostle Paul, in 2 Corinthians 8:23, commended certain individuals who were with him on his missionary journeys. He was proud of their commitment to the Gospel and said, “…they are the messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ.” What a testimony! Messengers of the churches and the glory of Christ. What an honour! It makes no difference where you are, or what your vocation is; see yourself as a sent one, representing the Church and the glory of Christ.

Preach the Gospel. Minister the Word to those in your world. The Bible says He’s made you an “able minister of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life” (2 Corinthians 3:6). You’re God’s mouthpiece; speak for Him! Do His work. Do great things for the Kingdom. Be bold. Let nothing keep you quiet. Keep bearing His message of faith, hope and love with urgency, for the end of all things is near (1 Peter 4:7).

PRAYER

Blessed Father, I thank you for the grace you’ve granted me to be relevant in the ministry of the Gospel, preaching and spreading your righteousness around the world. My life is the testimony of your power as I bear witness of Christ and testify of His saving grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
