Adoration for Jesus

It isn’t all the time that we focus on self. Sometimes we must focus on God, his son and the Holy Spirit. We must look up to heaven and sing a new song to God. We must serenade the Triune God with words of adoration. God loves to hear from you that you love him as much as he also loves you.

Here’s my little way of serenading Jesus with words of adoration. Join me to adore Jesus with the following

There are moments in a Christian life when doubts set in and he needs an assurance of his salvation.

Is my salvation real? Continue reading “Speak the Word of Assurance for Your Salvation”

Let The Holy Spirit Teach You

Life is overwhelming sometimes. One moment you are sure of the way to go. You seem to be in control of your life. You know which direction your life is heading. Then something throws in the spanner and throws you off course. Something happens to a perfectly planned life creating a state of confusion and frustration.

It is very easy to throw in the towel at the moment things are not working according to plan. The moral thing to do is to give up and stop living life. But there is somebody who is always available to show the way forward, that person is the Holy Spirit.

When feelings of lost sets in, the Holy Spirit will teach you what you need to do to find your bearing. Why not call out to him for help today?

Make a Declaration of Faith

I declare the Holy Spirit is my advocate, he will teach me all things. I am anointed to abide in him. His gifts will not be taken from me. He will remind of all the things that I need to know for the moment. I will not be left stranded nor frustrated. I have the tongue of the learned to speak comfort to the weary. I will not lack for words. I will call on him for help in times of need and he will answer me. He will give me the right solution to each problem I may be facing. He will prepare and instruct me on the best pathway for my life. I will not be lost in life. This is my declaration.

Declare God’s Presence Into Your Life

The Lord Jesus Christ is Emmanuel. God with us. Whatever you are going through, God is with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. He will not leave you comfortless (John 14:20). His hands are not too short to save and his ears are not dull to hear your heart cry (Isaiah 59:1).

Conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of man for the main purpose to save the children of God from their sins (Mathew 1:21) and to set free from slavery (Romans 6:18). He came to the world, not for his own selfishness but he selflessly gave up his throne in heaven just to be with you on earth (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14), to show you the way to the father’s heart (John 14:6) and to redeem you from the world of slavery (Deuteronomy 15:15).

Are You Observing Lent? Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs) About Lent Answered

Lent starts today. Are you observing lent? What is lent? What is the purpose of lent? How long is Lent? Should Christians observe lent? and how should Christians observe lent?

What is Lent?

Lent is the period of forty(40) days, about six weeks of fasting and praying for Christians. It has been linked to the accounts of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, in commemoration of the period of fasting of Jesus Christ in the wilderness before his temptation and the beginning of his ministry. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and it ends on Easter Sunday.

It is a season where many Christians deny the flesh, give up food and water, with the hope to connect with God through prayers, repentance of sins, atonement and giving of alms. Not all denominations participate but the Anglican, Roman Catholic, Calvinist, Lutheran, Methodist, Orthodox, Anabaptist and some Evangelicals participate in the season.

What is the purpose of Lent?

Its main purpose is to deny the flesh of its luxuries in participating in the suffering of Christ which leads to the death, the burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ accounted for in the New Testament of the Bible. Christs’ suffering started on the night he was arrested, beaten and tortured before his crucifixion and his death on Good Friday. All of these leads to a joyful celebration of Easter Sunday.

Is Lent compulsory for all Christians?

Lent is not compulsory for all Christians. In fact, it is not mentioned in the Bible but it is linked to the Bible verse instructing Christians on how to fast and pray(Mathew 6:16-18). Many Christians who observe lent participate in a traditional culture established by the church at Rome during the Council of Nicea in A.D. 325, when Emperor Constantine officially recognized church as the Roman Empire’s state religion.

What is the duration of Lent?

Lent is for a period of forty days.

What Should a Christian give up for Lent?

Many Christians give up food and water during the day and they break their fast usually in the evening.

What should I do during Lent?

During Lent, many Christians fast and pray. Some Christians commit to reading the whole Bible during this period. Other Christians commit to reading a devotional to help them get closer to God. Some denominations use The stations of the Cross devotional, Many Roman Catholic and some Protestant churches remove flowers from their altars, while crucifixes, religious statues, and other elaborate religious symbols are often veiled in violet fabrics in solemn observance of the event. Throughout Christendom, some adherents mark the season with the traditional abstention from the consumption of meat, most notably among Roman Catholics – Wikipedia.

Christians who observe lent must not do it as a religious exercise but as a way to build a closer relationship with God. It must be done with humility before God and in sincereness of heart. Lent should be a time to humble the heart, purify the heart and the mind from its lustful desires. It must be a time to reflect, repent and pray to God in preparation for a lifestyle of holiness.

7 Critical Things Jesus Did Just For You

Jesus did not go through agonising pain on the cross for no reason. He did not suffer rejection in the hands of those he cared for and loved for no just cause. His betrayal by the most trusted disciple was no child’s play. Jesus did it all for a reason in the season. He went through it all so that you might have abundant life.

Like a criminal he was harshly treated, beaten, spat upon, stripped naked, pierced, whipped with seventy lashes, condemned to death on the cross, so that you could be redeemed from the harsh consequences of sin and just so that you do not have to go through the same injustice he suffered on earth.
