WE’RE ALL IN ONE SHIP

The Holy Spirit, who is the Spirit of wisdom, is that excellent spirit.

WE’RE ALL IN ONE SHIP
(Learn To Pray For Your Nation And Its Leaders)

TO THE BIBLE
Jeremiah 29:7 NIV
“Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”

LET’S TALK

“I just can’t wait to escape from this country for good,” “Nothing works here!” “We’re far behind,” are some of the regular complaints made about our country today. A lot complain about the corruption, religious intolerance and other endemic vices in the society. But the only way the corruption and other vices can wane in any nation is when Christians rise to the challenge, and take up the responsibility of prayer and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Think about this: you’re on board a huge cruise ship, journeying somewhere on a pleasure voyage. If the captain and cabin crew members somehow get confused and announce that the ship had lost its bearing, everyone on board would be in trouble, right? This is because everyone trusted the captain to steer the ship in the right destination. That ship can be likened to the nation where you live, and the captain and crew members, the leaders. This shows how important your role is, therefore, to pray for the leaders of your country. They ought to be yielded to m God’s Spirit to guide them aright to steer the nation in the mdirection of His will and purpose, hence, their need for your prayers.

1 Timothy 2:1-4 tells us God’s desire for all men is to be saved; He wants His righteousness to rule the hearts of everyone and guide their thinking. This is the reason we must intercede for their hearts to be opened and receptive to the message of the Gospel.

You must pray that the Word of God will have free course, be glorified and have prevailing power in the lives of the leaders and citizens of your country. Remember, whatever happens in your country affects you directly or indirectly, so don’t put the fate of the country in the hands of others. Bear the responsibility as well.

GO DEEPER

Colossians 4:2
Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

Luke 18:1
And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

Psalms 122:6
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

PRAY

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the privilege and opportunity to impact my nation positively through prayer. I decree that there’s peace, progress and prosperity within her borders, as the leaders are guided by your wisdom and fortitude to do your 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.

Go Deeper

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.
