This Verse Says It All.

evil desires

 And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God Titus 2:11-12 The Holy Bible New Living Translation

This verse says it all.

There are those that foolishly believe that once they are saved by grace alone they can go out and do whatever their flesh desires and it is okay because Jesus died for their sins.

You cannot have it both ways.

Either you will be a slave to fleshly desires or you will obediently serve Christ of your own free will.

The first one is a cruel slave master which kills the spirit and slowly painfully destroys the soul.

The second one brings life to the body and brings joyous eternity to the spirit. Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy, the world curses us with anger, fear, depression, worry and unfulfillment. I choose Christ. Which one do you choose? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Ps10:16 for blessing me with the honour of being Your humble obedient servant. I thank You in Your majestic name. Amen

Christ blesses us with love, peace and joy May you be blessed with many opportunities to share these with others today.

Not Good Enoughs.

HE IS THE BOSS

Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men Colossians 3:23 The Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever worked for the “not good enoughs”?

These are ungrateful folks that no matter how hard you try it is never good enough for them. I used to be a people pleaser. It was not that their praise was needed for my ego but that there was a genuine desire to make others happy. It was and still is devastating to try your best only to experience their gratitude by slowly slicing it apart as with a knife with their complaints on how it is not good enough.

Now, that I am a more mature Christian, I seek Jesus’ pleasure not mans. He does not make a big deal out of it but there is a gentle loving feeling in the heart when He softly whispers:” Well done My good and faithful servant.” That is more rewarding than anyone else could say or do.

Work for Christ nor man. He is much easier to work for and much more appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) – Psalm 98:6 for blessing me with the honour of being Your obedient servant. I am filled with such wonderful joy when You esteem my dedication unto You in daily service to the King I adore. I thank you in Your majestic name. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

To Even Equal

GODS DELIGHTS

The world has nothing to offer to even equal much less surpass Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have worked for many that no matter how hard I worked our how great the job was when completed they could would and did always find something to complain about.

There were good employers as well but even then even though their praise and satisfaction was it always seemed as if there was something missing.

Society is a cruel slave master, I prefer Jesus as my King. He is much more loving and appreciative. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have worked for Christ and even when it is a minor accomplishment there was a sense of accomplishment that pleased my Heavenly King. It wasn’t inflating my ego, just a well done good and faithful servant feeling. It surpassed any accolades any employer gave me.

For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13 The Holy Bible, New Living Translation

Obedience is an act of faith. Joseph a son of Jehovah

The master said, ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. Matthew 25:23 Holy Bible New Living Translation

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 for blessing me with assigning me duties to accomplish that has eternal gratitude and well as receiving Your accolades here and now. This blesses me with meaning in my life. I exalt You in Your majestic name. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Do What Pleases Him.

his instruction

 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. Philippians 2:13 Holy Bible New Living Translation

At some point in everyones life we all ask the same question:” Why am I here?”

Now you do not build a car to drive on rail road tracks do you?

Why?

Because it was not built to travel on rail road track but on roads that is why.

So many folks waste their lives going out and trying to drive their cars (lives) on railroad tracks and then wonder why their lives have no meaning.

Jesus Christ is our King.As such, He has specif planned for our lives. We can only find fulfillment in life when we stop trying to find meaning in life by following what we want to do and we start doing what Christ designed for us to do.

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 Holy Bible New Living Translation 

So, get off of the railroad tracks and get on the Road to Heaven Christ has chosen for you to travel on.

“God left you on earth for a purpose. Do it.” Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Bara (The Lord Creator) for creating me for a unique purpose in service to You.Please guide me to fulfill Your purpose in my life, which blesses me with meaning in my life. I meekly request this in the name of He who followed Your purpose for Him on earth all the way to the cross Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Following the Example Of

FOLLOWING CHTISTS EXAMPLE

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. Ephesians 5:2 Holy Bible New Living Translation

We imitate that which we admire. Joseph a son of Jehovah

True Christians admire, adore and worship Christ. As such, they are not haughty nor self righteous. They are humble ( which means we do not put ourselves above nor below others. We are confident in who we are in Christ so we do not need to impress anybody. ), loving, compassionate and respectful.

When folks see this in a selfish self centered world they are drawn to us like bugs to a light. That is how we imitate Christ, which is the only way to attract the little lost sheep to the Great Sheppard flock.

“There is not a hint of one person who was afraid to draw near him [Jesus]. There were those who mocked him. There were those who were envious of him. There were those who misunderstood him. There were those who revered him. But there was not one person who considered him too holy, too divine, or too celestial to touch. Max Lucado

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the casual manner in which we can commune together. Please bless me with this ability to emulate You when in the midst of the lost so they can relax and be open to receiving Your message of a desire to bless them with a loving relationship with You as You have blessed me. I sincerely request this in Your beautiful name. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Wanna Know so I can Do.

follow your ways

 Commit yourself to instruction; listen carefully to words of knowledge. Proverbs 23:12 Holy Bible, New Living Translation Version

 I wanna know so I can do as my Heavenly King desires. Because I love Jesus so much I have a deep desire to know what He wishes for me to do.

We need to daily commit to seeking out the best instruction for our lives.

And, of course, the best instruction manual is The Holy Bible.

There are other resources such as on line daily devotionals like Our Daily Bread. For those who prefer to listen rather than read a fantastic resource is https://www.sermonaudio.com/main.asp Both are great.

When we dedicate ourselves to asking for instructions for the coming day with commitment to obeying the instructions given, we will find that Jehovah guides us along on our day even though many times it does not feel as if He is there.

Then, there is the big picture in which Jehovah moulds our personality which takes decades. Being a little slow at catching on at times (we all are) it means there are occasions when the information must be digested a little at a time.

As well, there is a slow process for us to serve Jesus’ big purpose.

This may take years and involve many baby steps along the way.

I love to learn but sometimes it is difficult to put that knowledge into practice. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Rabbi (God our Teacher) for the distinction of being one of Your disciples. I love to sit and listen and learn from the Holy Spirit whom You have sent to instruct me in the proper manner in which to be a revered servant of Yours. I applaud You for this favour in Your holy name. Amen

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

He Made You Something Special

work-in-progress

 

For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

Have you ever looked at the life of the majority of movie stars, musicians and TV stars? How many of them are all messed up on drugs and booze? How many of them are involved with sexual promiscuity? How many of their lives are all messed up? How many of them change partners more than you change the tires on your car? Have you noticed how shallow and self centred they are? Then why in the world would desire to emulate them?

The same can be said about the majority of the most popular kids in school when we see them later in life. Most have squandered their lives away on booze, drugs and failed marriages. Being older, it still amazes me when I see this.

Jehovah does not make junk. He made you something special and when you accept Christ as your Savior, He moulds you into an even more beautiful child of God. This is a lifetime endeavor. The longer we walk with Jesus and look back at how far the Holy Spirit has taken us and changed us, it is awesome and amazing.

We forfeit three fourths of ourselves to be like other people. Arthur Schopenhauer

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator) for the patience, skill and endurance to continuously mould this difficult lump of clay into a beautiful Heavenly child of Yours. I long to see Your reflection in my daily life become more and more inlaid in my character. I praise You in the name of the most beautiful of all Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah
