Ephesians: Chapter 4 verse 1
As a prisoner for The Lord,
then I urge you to live a life
worthy of the calling
you have received.
What a wonderful thing it is when God Himself has called us into His Kingdom. What an honour to be a prisoner for Jesus. It’s only with His help that we can ever be truly worthy of the calling we have received to work for the Kingdom of God.
So – if we are Christians we need to try to be worthy and do some work at least for The Kingdom of God.
I do know that we do not have to work for our Salvation as it is already ours when we invite Jesus into our lives having then repented of our sins and have been forgiven of them.
Therefore one of the things that we can do for God our Father in Heaven would be a good thing to try not to do that sin again. Then how good would we feel that being a prisoner of Jesus we can do that for Him.
If you happen to feel that you are living in a prison at the moment, either in your home or a relationship – remember what the disciples did when they were in a real prison……?
Well they sang – what a privilege to be able to sing out loud or in our hearts to God and thank Him for our Salvation which no-one can take away from us.
Praise The Lord.
I pray that you have a lovely Day today and all through the coming week.
* Rejoice in being
Prisoner for Jesus *
Accused of being a Christian?
If someone accused you of being aChristian
would there be enough evidence
to prove that you are one?
Don’t be offended by the above, think quietly a moment to understand what it means. i.e. is there enough evidence in our every day living to show that we belong to Gods Kingdom?
Do we speak and act lovingly towards others each day, not just when we feel like it!
What evidence can we show today?
Can we forgive?
Are we walking in truth and righteousness?
The above is taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’
Well that certainly gives us something to think about dosn’t it?
Mostly as Christians we think that we do pretty good but when we actually sit quietly and think about it, what do we really see.
How do we think that others observe us? How do we observe them? i.e. our friends – our neighbours – our Church friends – our Congregations – our families – our work mates.
We are not to judge others that is our Father in Heaven’s job to do that but we can look and see – then we may see our own shortcomings.
Oh! Dear,,,,, what do we see. …. are we walking in righteousness and truth, have we forgiven whoever we need to have forgiven, are we using swere words, are we listening to The Holy Spirit?……..not to the unholy one.
Looks like we do have a fair bit to consider – then it is really nice if someone does accuse us of being a Christian, that would be a blessing indeed.
John Chapter 14 verse 6
I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.
So to be a Christian (if you are not one) all you have to do is ask Jesus to come into your life, repent of your sins and He will be with you forever, including The Holy Spirit also God (Jesus Father in Heaven).
Then let a Christian know that you too belong to The Kingdom of God.
And Look forward to being accused of being a Christian.!!!
It is a privilege to be a Christian.
* God Bless and keep you
in His Love
