SCRIPTURE READING….COLOSSIANS 2:6-7….
” As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it[a] with thanksgiving”
NOTE;…….Hear me, “WHAT YOU HEAR CAN GROW OR STAGNATE YOU DEPENDING ON HOW YOU APPLY IT.”
Believers in Christ Jesus grows through the word of God. “WHERE GOD’S WORD IS NEGLECTED, FAITH CAN’T SURVIVE.”
Romans 10:17….”So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”
Meaning that FAITH is the product of God’s word. That is why where God is neglected, faith can’t survive.
God does not want you to be weak, instead, He wants you to be strong. Believers in Christ should reflect the life of Christ for the world to see. “NOTHING SHOULD KEEP YOU FROM STANDING FIRM IN CHRIST JESUS AS CHRISTIANS.” Not to stand firm in Christ is to STAND WITH THE DEVIL. If you don’t stand firm in Christ, you’re going to stand firm with the devil. You draw your strength from Christ as a believer.
John 15:1-6… “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;[a] and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned”
Child of God, it is IMPOSSIBLE TO BE FAITHFUL AND FRUITFUL CHRISTIAN IF YOU ARE DETACHED FROM CHRIST. We are to be Rooted in Christ. And that is, we’re to talk in Him. It is not enough to just confess your life to Christ but also stand firm in Him.
When you come to Christ Jesus, you must live THE CHRIST-LIKE-LIFESTYLE. How are you living your life as a Christian? If you confess Christ Jesus, then live a Christ like lifestyle.
Child of God, let us learn to abide and persevere in the faith. We must rest upon Christ as a building upon a foundation. We should build our faith to overcome temptations. We should be growing stronger in our habit by growing strong in the Lord. You have been taught about God and holiness so you must live as such.
Beginning from today, nothing should deceived you as Mogparians rather than the true teachings of God. “UNTIL YOU ARE SATISFIED AND HAPPY WITH YOUR STAND IN CHRIST JESUS, YOU CANNOT BE HAPPY”
Be thankful to God for Jesus Christ because He is the reason for our salvation.
This is what you must do starting from today….
1. Determined to grow your Faith daily and deeper in Christ Jesus. And you can do this by staying with the word.
2. You must also improve your relationship with Christ and resist whatever can stop you from having a good relationship with Him.
3. You must examined every teaching by the mirror of God before accepting it.
4. Be firm in Christ Jesus and do not be shaking.
5. Be happy and be firm with your Faith in Christ.
Don’t forget that “WHERE GOD IS NEGLECTED, FAITH CAN’T SURVIVE”. And when your Faith dies, you cannot please God. See yourself as God sees you.
God loves you and so do I.
If you’re yet to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior… Say this prayer after me…
Say…ALMIGHTY GOD, I THANT YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY, I KNOW I’M A SINNER AND CAN’T SAVE MYSELF. TODAY, FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS AND ACCEPT ME AS YOUR SON. THE SIN I USED TO DO, I WILL DO THEM NO MORE.
THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME IN THE NAME OF JESUS…..AMEN!!!
