A closer walk with our beloved friend.

First You Have to Die


My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Before you can become a Christian, first you have to die.

You have to die to self and be resurrected unto Christ first in your life.

It is not natural so we must depend upon Christs super natural powers to transform us from the caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly. This is not a one of experience but a daily one.

The manner in which we mature from a child of Christ into a man or woman of Christ is to trust Him. Many times what He desires of us does not make senses. That is where trust and obedience matures us. It begins with baby steps and slowly progresses into larger steps as we mature more and more.

I have walked with my bestest friend for many decades and am still maturing in Him. Being a Christian is a life time commitment. We will not be mature Christians until we are in our Heavenly home. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The more we trust and obey our Heavenly King the easier it is to follow in His footsteps as He guides us into service for Him.

As He is our King so too does that makes us His servants. We are not to accept Him as our saviour and sit on our hands waiting for Him to take us to Heaven but rather we are to serve Him in dedicating our daily lives unto Him. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King Psalm 98:6 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation ) for the privilege of being Your humble obedient servant. It is the greatest honour there can ever been given.

May my service always bring joy to Your precious heart. It is in Your majestic name I pray. Amen

May you be blessed with numerous opportunities to serve the most majestic Emperor there can ever be today and every day. Joseph a son of JehovahThis article and photo @ Joseph a son of Jehovah 2021

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
