Are You Willing To

CHRIST FIRST, OTHERS SECOND

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives. Galatians 5:24-25 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

In order for us to have a deep relationship with Jehovah first we must sacrifice the most important thing in our lives, we must sacrifice ourselves. Self is the opaque veil that hides the face of God from us. It can be removed only in spiritual experience, never by mere instruction.A. W. Tozer

Are you willing to perform that difficult sacrifice?

Let’s face it, without Christ everything we do we do for ourselves isn’t it ?

In our relationships isn’t it really all about ourselves?

Oh we may be dedicated husbands or wives, we may be dedicated parents, but what are our motives?

Isn’t it to satisfy a need to be loved and respected?

When we have all the latest toys isn’t it to satisfy ourselves or to impress people so as to inflate our ego?

On the other hand when we sacrifice ourselves unto God we put Him first.

Christ first, others second, self last is every Christians motto. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Now why would we do something stupid like that you ask?

Every Christian will reply it is in gratitude for His deep divine love for us.

Now, that does not sound stupid does it? 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Only one life, so live it well, And keep your candle trimmed and bright; Eternity, not time, will tell The radius of that candle’s light. —Miller

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) Psalms 10:16 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation for blessing me with the honor of being Your humble, loyal servant. Thank you Holy Spirit for teaching me how to always put my Beloved King first and for blessing me with the strength to do so. I exalt You my Holy Beloved in Your majestic name. Amen

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

How to Make it Special

goodness-is

 Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. Proverbs 3:9-10, The Holy Bible, New International Version

Do you give to the Lord with a joyous heart, or, do you give niggardly?

Niggardly: giving or sharing as little as possible Webster’s Dictionary

For me, I love to give with a joyous heart. A heart of gratitude to my loving creator for all the wonderful gifts He has so graciously given me. Not just material things like a place to live, but also insights into how truly awesome He is, how ingenious He is, how loving and caring He is. When I meditate on these things my heart cannot but help but give joyously to our wonderful God.

Think of how much you would pay to go to the best university in the world?

That is where you are when you read and digest the great wisdom in the Bible.

Then think of how much you give back to the great I Am?

“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40 The Holy Bible, New International Version

Think of all the wonderful gifts He so hospitably gives us?

Mull over the beautiful sunrise, the wonderful fragrance of flowers, and the sweet serenade of the tiny song birds. While delighting in these special treasures, why not take this time to talk with Him as well.

What better time or place?

These are all amazing gifts He freely shares with us if we take the time to enjoy them. Our reciprocation should therefore be one of joyous returning to the marvelous Immanuel (God who walks amongst us) whether the commitment is financial or elegantly serving in a volunteer capacity.

When we give appreciatively to the magnificent God we are exhibiting our gratitude towards Him the way He intended it to be and the way that brings a smile to His beautiful face. There is joyous celebration with angels singing when you share in this manner.

The Holy Spirit is the secret of the power in my life All I have to do is surrender my life to Him. Kathryn Kuhlman

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with an abundance of both physical and spiritual security (not overabundance but enough to live comfortably). Thank you my Beloved for blessing me with numerous opportunities to share this wealth with those who are in need and are appreciative of the gifts given to them through Your grace. I praise You in the name of He who is Your greatest gift to me Jesus Christ. Amen

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

He is Three in One.

JESUS MY BEST FRIEND

God is faithful [He is reliable, trustworthy and ever true to His promise—He can be depended on], and through Him you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:9  The Holy Bible Amplified Version                

First Jesus is our Saviour. It is only He who has the key to unlock Heavens door. There is no hoops to jump through or any religion that can open that door. Yes it seems intolerant but the truth is intolerant to lies.

Second He is my best friend. My greatest joy is when in communion with Him. Not necessarily talking about problems or victories, but just being silent and enjoying communion with Him. There is no piece of wood or sliver whether it be of paintings of saints or Buddhist (or catholic one either) statutes that you can talk with (now to talk with someone means not only do you talk with them but they talk with you as well) that will answer back.

 Third, He is my King, which means I am His free will servant.

We all serve someone or something. I can think of nothing nor no one I would rather serve than Christ. It is the greatest honor and pleasure to serve than Jesus. Joseph a son of Jehovah He is three in one every moment of my life. Isn’t that amazing.

“We meet God through entering into a relationship both of dependence on Jesus as our Savior and Friend and of discipleship to Him as our Lord and Master.” — J. I. Packer

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honor of serving my best friend whose blood has bought me an entrance through Heavens Gate to spend an eternity with You. You are truly the most amazing of all. I exalt You in You magnificent 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.

Who Better is There Than

The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. My eyes are always on the Lord, for he rescues me from the traps of my enemies. Psalm 25:14-15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation.

A covenant is an agreement between two people (in this case between Jehovah and us). It is an unbroken promise.

Jehovah teaches us to be the closest of best friends with Him.

Close friends share the good times and the bad times together. Jehovah is there to enjoy the good times with us and to encourage us through the hard times.

Close friends confidently confide with each other their deepest secrets. We can confidently confide in Jehovah and He never blabs it all over town. He loves to confide in us.

Close friends watch out for each other. Now it is impossible for us to watch out for Jehovah but we can watch out for His other children around us. He is always watching out for us. He never sleeps nor is too busy or on vacation and unavailable.

Close friends are always there to help each other. We cannot help Jehovah personally but we can help out those in His community as an act of helping Him out. Jehovah is always there to help us not matter the problem.

Close friends will fight to the death to protect each other. We cannot fight to protect Jehovah but we can fight to protect His children suffering because of injustice (this need not be confined to third world countries but look around us today in industrialized countries and we see the wicked ones constantly at battle against Jehovahs children (and yes, the socialists called liberals are the worst perpetrators).

I cannot count the number of times Jehovah has laughed at the wicked ones as He led me safely away from their vile traps and they became entangled in their own traps.

Who better is there than Jehovah to be our closest of closest best friend. It is impossible to think of anyone to be His equal much less His superior. That is why Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are my closest of closest best friends. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pyyrand (Jesus my best friend) for the honor of being my best friend like no other is capable of being. It is the most wonderful of all relationships. I extol You in Your loving 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

The Yeah Buts.

 Because of these [sinful] things the [divine] wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience [those who fail to listen and who routinely and obstinately disregard God’s precepts] Colossians 3:6 Holy Bible, Amplified Version

We have all experienced the yeah buts.

Someone instructs us to do something we do not want to do and we all come up with the yeah buts. Yeah but _____ as an excuse for not doing as we are told to do.

Someone tells us not to do something and we come back with yeah but__________ for reasons we will do as we like.

The worst offence of course is when we are continuously disobedient unto Jehovahs direction in our life. We do so at our own peril.

If Jehovah directs us to do something it is for our own good or to advance His kingdom.

If Jehovah directs us not to do something it is because it will turn out bad for us or for others.

We will pay for our arrogant disobedience in painful fashion.

I have experienced it and it most certainly was not an enjoyable experience. Sad to say, I was a slow learner and it took decades before submitting to Jehovah with no thought of anything but obedience unto Him.

“Today we are overboard on belief but bankrupt on obedience.” — Author Unknown

Prayer: Please Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) help me, as You always have, to be an obedient child of Yours. I know that Your call to obedience is for my own good as well as for Your honour. It is my greatest joy to bring glory and honor to the one I love the deepest. I humbly request this in the name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year.

All scripture is for instruction.

GODS GUIDEBOOK

 All Scripture is God breathed [given by divine inspiration] and is profitable for instruction, for conviction [of sin], for correction [of error and restoration to obedience], for training in righteousness [learning to live in conformity to God’s will, both publicly and privately behaving honorably with personal integrity and moral courage]. 2 Timothy 3:16 Holy Bible Amplified Version

A desire to know merely to know, is curiosity.

But a desire to know in order to do, is godliness.

I have met many that can quote any Bible verse for any situation. When asked if they put it into application in their lives they just give me a dumb look and walk away.

I have met a few of the wise that can quote a Bible verse for any situation and explain what it means and how the Holy Spirit helped them to put it into application in their lives. Those are the ones I will listen to and respect.

“To know God is to know that our obedience is due to Him.” C. S. Lewis

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for blessing me with the wisdom and fortitude to obey what has been taught to me by Your wise teacher The Holy Spirit. Doing so blesses me with being a good and faithful servant. I edify You in the name of Your most obedient son Jesus Christ. Amen

May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ.
