PUT OFF…THE OLD MAN

2 Corinthians 5:17

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

What does it really mean to be a new creation? What is the experience like? When Jesus said to Nicodemus that he needed to be born again. He must have asked Jesus this similar question. What does it mean?

In John 3:3-8

3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

JESUS, THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER

Mark 5: 25 - 34

25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. 28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”

29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the [a]affliction. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”

31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ”

32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”

This woman had suffered a long time. She had gone round and round seeking a miracle but all to no avail. She had spent all that she had. She had looked for solution everywhere till she met the Lord Jesus and received her miracle. Power was released from Christ and she received her miracle. Power oozed out of Him as she reached at in faith and her case was settled.

The Lord is still doing miracles today and will keep doing miracles because according to Hebrews 13: 8

CALLED TO BE FRUITFUL AND TO FLOURISH

There are many believers today who are ignorant of their innate nature to be fruitful and to flourish.

We have all been created to be fruitful. God wants us to flourish.

In John 15:16, Jesus tells His disciples that He chose them to be fruitful.

16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.

KEEPING GOD ALWAYS BEFORE YOU

Have you ever felt as though you are on your own?

Felt as though everyone has moved on, and you seem to be in a place of complete stagnation.

Feeling forgotten by God? Wondering if God’s promise will ever be fulfilled in your life? Are you wondering if He would ever open that door He promised? Are you hoping praying and trusting God for a breakthrough? Yet there is no breakthrough.

Joseph was a man with a dream, he had the most amazing dream, even his brothers became jealous, his father was upset with him. His brothers knew his dreams could come true one day and the only solution to joseph realising that dream was to kill him.  

Genesis 37:18-20

18 Now when they saw him afar off, even before he came near them, they conspired against him to kill him. 19 Then they said to one another, “Look, this dreamer is coming! 20 Come therefore, let us now kill him and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, ‘Some wild beast has devoured him.’ We shall see what will become of his dreams!”

LIVING A LIFE OF VICTORY THROUGH PRAYER

1 Thessalonians 5:17

Pray without ceasing

Ephesians 6: 18

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Paul writes to the early church and exhorts them to pray without ceasing.

He tells the Ephesians Church to pray always.

What does it mean to pray without ceasing? What does it mean to pray always?

COULD YOU NOT WATCH WITH ME ONE HOUR?

Matthew 26:40

Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour?

We sometimes miss the importance of prayer because we do not understand it’s importance.

Jesus said to His disciples could you not watch with me for just one hour.

This statement is very important to note because prayer is what keeps us from temptation.

Prayer keeps you away from falling.

Prayer strengthens your faith.

Prayer keeps you from losing faith.

THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS

John 14:12

“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.

A quote I picked up recently, this is what is says.

Being the hands and feet of Jesus means that Christ’s followers, past, present, and future, are obedient in their commission to preach the gospel and co-labour with Christ to love, serve, and heal the broken, hurting, and hopeless of this world.

Thirty-two years ago, I gave my life to Christ, He became my Lord and my Saviour. The journey to my salvation began more than 32 years ago because there were people who preached the gospel to me, people who prayed for me, people who saw beyond my defensive mechanism, people who never stopped loving me despite my attitude towards them, they were the hands and feet of Jesus.
