Compare Yourself To.

NO CONCIET

 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross[expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Matthew 16:24 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

What is pride—but the worship of self?

Why do you think folks have themselves covered with tattoos but as an act of self worship?

Why do you think social media is so reverent in society today except as a means to puff up ones own importance? The list goes on and on.

Compare yourself to Christ and then see how good you are. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Why are folks so reluctant to give their time and labour for the good of others, and the glory of God? Because they want it for ease, and the enjoyment of self! As well, they want it for bragging rights of look at all the toys I have.

Imagine all the good we could accomplish if everyone gave one tenth of their earnings to a worthy cause. What good are your toys compared to the riches of Heaven stored up for the dutiful good stewards?

When we are Christians we put Christ first, others second and self last. It is hard and most times we receive little recognition from others for our efforts, even those we help. 

A warning for those considering becoming the Heavenly Kings servants, when you become a servant unto Christ expect a lot of suffering. Indeed, Christ spoke more of suffering than He did pleasures of being His servants.

Being a servant unto Christ is the hardest endeavor you shall ever participate in but it has eternal Heavenly rewards. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever)for the wonderful privilege of being a humble servant to such a magnificent Heavenly King. I give all praise in Your awesome 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

Non-serving Does Not Belong to Us.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do Ephesians 2:10 New International Version

There is no such thing.

There is no such thing as a non-serving Christian.

Yes we have been saved by grace alone with Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.

That does not mean we can accept Christ and sit on our hands waiting for Him to take us to Heaven.

Once we become a member of Jehovah’s family He has His set chores for us to do. These are chores that are specially prepared just for us in our service to Christ.

Do not forget that if Jesus is our king then we are His servants.

What does a servant do?

They serve.

It need not be anything spectacular like missionary work. Whatever you do, when you do it for the glory of Christ, you are fulfilling your duties as His servant.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for the numerous opportunities You so graciously provide me with to serve You both great and small every day. I give thanks in the name of Your wonderful child who served You so admirably when we walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.

That is Who I Am.

HE HAS THE WORK PREPARED

 You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you are right in doing so, for that is who I am.John 13:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many in the Christian community love to chant that Christ is their Savior (which He is) and their best Friend (which He is) but how many talk about how He is their Lord?

Because, in a Christians life, that is who He is, Lord over all. How many daily live by the motto:Christ first, others second, self last?

In todays world of me first, others second and who cares about Jesus a Christian is to be different.

Do you put Christ first in your finances?

Do you put Christ first in your time?

Do you put Christ first in your hobbies?

Do you put Christ first in your family?

If not, how can you expect Him to say: “Well done good and faithful servant” to you at Heavens Gate?

Or, do you think He will say: Get away from Me thou wicked one. You served other Gods now go live with them for an eternity in Hell.”

The Christian motto is: Not my will but Thy will be done my Lord. Show me where You want me to go. Teach me what You want me to do for You that I may bring glory and honour unto Thee and bring the little lost sheep unto Thee.” Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with teaching this meek servant of Yours to always put You above all others, including myself. I relish every opportunity to place the best of everything You bless me with as a loving gift unto You my cherished King. In You majestic name I exalt Thee amen.

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

He Can Do the Impossible.

faith in the future

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13New King James Version

Have you ever been given a “mission impossible” by Jehovah?

You know, when He asks you to do something and you do not have the recourses to do it, skill to do it or experience to do it.

More than once I accused Jehovah of being crazy. You want me to do what? Are You crazy? You want me to go where? Are You crazy?

The thing is though, He always starts me out with small tasks. As I am more and more obedient to Him and reliant upon Him to provide for the task to be completed He gives me more challenging tasks

That may not sound too inviting in our do as little as possible and demand as much as possible world but the bonus is that the more obedient we are to our Master (if Jesus is our King then we are His servants) the more He reveals just how awesome and amazing He is. This creates a more respectful, awestruck and loving heart towards Him and we develop a strong loving relationship with Him.

Wow, what an incredible bonus huh?

“God is looking for those with whom He can do the impossible what a pity that we plan only the things that we can do by ourselves.” A. W. Tozer

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with amazing adventures as I am Your obedient child in which You always provide for me. Thank you that this blesses me with a deer understanding, love and respect for You my cherished Heavenly Father. I exalt You in the name of my awesome King Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

What Are You Going to be Receiving?

You render to each one according to his work. Psalm 62:12 New King James Version

Be warned, you will harvest what you have planted.                                                          

I know some souls who in their early years laughed and thought they were so smart and were getting away with being mean spirited (intentionally saying and doing things to hurt innocent victims), always being a schemer and manipulator. Usually once they hit their mid forties it comes back to haunt them. Their mental and physical health slowly deteriorate and they are left with no support. Their lives become a slow decent into a living hell which becomes worse by they day.

I have met those who had a kind loving heart that were servants of Christ. They aged gracefully and were constantly surrounded with loving caregivers. In the end, the loving kind hearted Christians are taken to a beautiful place called Heaven where there is joy, love and peace to be with a loving king called Jesus.                                                                    

The wicked are dragged down into the burning bowls of Hell, a place of sorrow, pain and torment to be with vicious demons.                                                                                      

What kind of harvest are you planting? Be careful, your eternity depends upon it.        

Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim(God our creator) create in me a loving, caring, generous obedient heart unto You so I am able to emulate Your most precious son Jesus Christ. I do humbly ask this in His gracious name. Amen.,                                                                                                                                                            

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
