We Must Ask for Every Day

The most important blessing we must ask for every day is for Christ to bless us with His love. When He generously gives that to us, then we will have patience, self control, wisdom, love, respect and compassion towards others and towards ourselves. These are the foundation of a Christians every day walk in a life committed to serving Jesus Christ our Lord and King. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

As You Have Received Christ

As You Have Received Christ

The only way you can live the Christian life is by divine provision.  Jesus said, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).

The apostle Paul wrote, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him (Colossians 2:6).

“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord…”

How did you receive Him?  There is only one way as taught in scripture.  It is by grace through faith in Christ (Acts 4:12).

Phillips translates Colossians 2:6, “Just as you received Christ, so go on living in Him – simple faith.”

The apostle John said, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12, NASB 1995).

You receive “Jesus Christ the Lord” by believing on His name.  “As many as received Him, as many as have believed on Him.”  To have faith in Him is to receive Him.

Do you have that attitude of faith and trust in Jesus Christ?  Faith indicates a relation to Christ as Savior.  It is submission to His Lordship as King of our lives and confidence in Him as our high priest.  Do I conduct my life in submission to the king of my life?

Have you received Jesus Christ the Lord?  “Jesus” is the name given to Him at His birth meaning “Yahweh saves,” “Jehovah saves.”  That is why the apostle Peter declared there is no other name given among men whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).  Calling on all other names for eternal salvation will send you to an eternal hell.  There is salvation and eternal life only in Jesus Christ.  Jesus is the Savior who came to this earth to die for our sins and give us God’s kind of life.  Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me” (John 14:6).  “He who has seen Me has seen the Father” (v.9).

This same “Jesus” of Nazareth is the Messiah, the anointed King and High Priest.  The Messiah to the Hebrew people was the King – Priest.  He is both the One who reigns as sovereign over our lives and the One who intercedes on our behalf.  The King is also the Priest.  The King who has supreme authority is also the Priest who offers the one perfect sacrifice of Himself on behalf of His people.

Has Jesus Christ become your Lord?  “For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11, NASB 1995).  Have you bowed to that name?

If you have never “received” Him as “Jesus Christ the Lord,” you cannot “so walk in Him.”  Do you have this kind of a relationship with Him?  Have you surrendered your soul to Him?

The comparison the apostle is bringing out in Colossians 2:6 is the fact that we have been saved by grace through faith is the same way we live the Christian life. We are saved and sustained by that same kind of faith in our Lord.

“Just as you received Christ, so go on living in Him – simple faith.”  Taylor paraphrased, “And now just as you trusted Christ to save you, trust Him too for each day’s problems; live in vital union with Him.”

The word “walk” (peripateo) is figurative of “the walk of life,” or your life conduct.  Make the Lord Jesus Christ truly “Lord” and Master of each day you live.  Maintain a close personal fellowship with Christ; your very life depends on it.  We must conduct our lives as men and women who have been united with Christ deriving our life from Him.  Because of this living relationship with Him, we are to conduct our lives in dependence upon Him (Jn. 15:5).

As you have received Him, keep on walking.

Selah! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

Jesus Called Into Existence a Community Of

“Jesus called into existence a community of disciples to follow him at extreme risk. A safe Christianity is not genuinely Christ-like. Christianity will always be counter-cultural, a protest culture. And this means that we will always dare to stand up for what we believe in, to commit ourselves to our beliefs in spite of the tension between being a believer and belonging to the secular culture.” Edward Farrell

Know That the Lord Has

Know that the Lord has set apart him who is God like for Himself. The Lord hears when I call to Him. Psalms 4: 3 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

Yes we have been set apart from the world to serve Jesus. We are His free will servants.

God like means we live, as best as we can, imitating Christs character in our daily lives because we love Him and worship Him. We are not perfect but our heart, minds and bodies are dedicated to Jesus and in service to Him.

So, of course, we who serve Jesus because we love Him and respect Him, when we call out unto Him He not only listens but speaks back with us in return. It is a wonderful experience.

Those who are servants of the King always receive royal attention from Him when we call out to Him. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) for the honour of being Your free will servant ( I serve You because I want to out of an act of love towards You ). Thank you that whenever this humble servant calls out to His loving Lord, not only does the Lord instantly listen but also send the appropriate help as well. Oh what a blessing it is to be a servant of Your my Love. It is in Your glorious name I give thanks. Amen

Will be Repaid Many Times Over

Yes,” Jesus replied, “and I assure you that everyone who has given up house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the Kingdom of God, will be repaid many times over in this life, and will have eternal life in the world to come.” Luke 18: 29- 30 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

This is the best retirement investment there is.

When we give up everything for Christ, He will give us everything we need to live a comfortable life in our elder years. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I have made plans for my retirement that went up in smoke.

There was land purchased in my younger years that was taken away from me to by the politically correct. I lost all my dreams when I lost that.

Then I fell for what I now believe were scams by an investment company and went broke. Being a slow learner, it took three times before understanding that investment was a scam. Again my dreams were shattered.

When I dedicated my life to service unto our Heavenly King He sent me all over the world serving under very strenuous circumstances with little materially to show for the years of effort. There was deep concern that my final years would be spent living the paupers life with nothing to show for decades of service as old age crept in.

It was taken to my Heavenly Love and He reassured me with Bible verse after Bible verse for about three hours that He would bless me in this life as well as our eternal one.

One night Jesus gave me a dream that I was walking down a dark deserted street and was homeless. Then a rich man came to me and softly demanded I follow Him. He took me to an apartment that had nice clothes in it, the apartment was nice and there was food in the refrigerator and in the cupboards. Then He informed me that as long as I was obedient unto Him I would never be homeless, wear rags or have an empty belly.

He has been true to His word then, I am sure He is good for it now that the elder years are creeping ever faster in this old boys life.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ghmolah ( The God of Recompense. Job 11:20 ) that even though it looks like I am being a sucker and many times being abused in my service unto You, I believe Your promise to me to always take care of me including when I am in Your beautiful Heavenly home You have graciously prepared for me. It is in Your wonderful name I thank you. Amen

May you be blessed daily with the faith in our Heavenly provider that He always provides for all your needs. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Keeping Our Eyes On

 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith Hebrews 12:2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

I have travelled a lot and taken only two routes.

The first one was to wing it. Let’s just go and see where the road will take us. Although it was adventurous, it was also very dangerous at times and there were many times I had to back track.

On the other hand, when I followed a map the journey was a lot less stressful and unnecessarily complicated.

Once we become Christians we depend upon Jesus to lead us where our Heavenly King desires His free will servant to go. During the journey He initiates circumstances which will strengthen our faith, trust, in Him. This causes us to trust Him more, respect Him more, appreciate Him more and most importantly, to love Him more.

How can you see where you are going? With keeping your eyes on the map and Jesus is the map? Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Roi (Psalms 23:1 The LORD My Shepherd ) for constantly guiding this gullible sheep that could easily be led astray if left on my own. Thank you for blessing me with fine tuning me to be ever more mature every day. I praise You in Your wise name. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah T
