HOW ABOUT POSSESING THE MIND OF CHRIST?

        Philippians 2:5
“Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”

That’s what I want! Don’t you?

The mind is the
faculty of a human being’s
reasoning and thoughts.

God made us perfect but because of the sin our mind,everyone of us, is debased and degraded.

From a logical standpoint- we don’t reason as we are supposed to .

Our thoughts are evil continually.

But if Christ possessed  a perfect mind, then it must be chance for each one of us to posses it.

Through Daily Bible study,Prayer and meditation the mind of Christ is promised.

I thank God that my weak mind is transformable into a strong mind of Christ.
What say you about God today?

You and I can benefit much from studying the life of Jesus. It will give us the same power from the Father that He received. Power that will slowly change our desires to be more pure. Power that will slowly help us to dislike sinful things. When our desires and “likes” change we can be used by God as a sweet aroma to help others.

Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.

So, join me and spend time with God. Spiritual Exercises are fun, You’ll love it!

NOT NUCLEAR WEAPONS NOR MISSILES.

2 Corinthians 10:4
“We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.

No,not worldly weapons.

Not pistols nor measles nor rifles nor nuclear weapons but God’s mighty weapons.
God’s mighty weapons alone can bring peace.

“God’s mighty weapons”-I love that.
While the whole world is struggling with  conflict resolution and peacemaking.

while the government is Wasting millions of dollars on armsrace .

And while men are busy arguing true Bible doctrines and entrusting their belief into the hands of their  fellow men, we have the mighty weapons of God.

Weapons that can knock down  all strongholds of human reason.

Weapons that can destroy all false arguments.

I am glad Paul got it right even though most of the world is still struggling over this single thing.

Obidience to Christ is the only solution to obtain this mighty weapon of God.

As come closer to God.

He through Christ bestows to each peace and happiness and power.

Power to even overcome sin and to live in obidience to him.

I really need this power.

I really need this mighty weapon of God.

I thank God for His providence through Christ.

ARE YOU AN INFIRMITY BEARER?

 

“Now we that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.”- Romans 15:1

Jesus himself did not live to please himself.

When talking of himself as a minister he said “For the son of man came not to be ministered unto but to minister. “(see Mark 10:45 )

Yet I see many of my brothers and sisters living to please themselves.

The strong have become a curse upon the weak and position has taken more honor than brotherly love.

Jesus the strongest never trampled upon the weak any single time. In fact, he uplifted them all.

Often taking their weakness in exchange for His strength.

Through Bible study, Prayer and meditation we all can receive strength to be strong from the Father.

We then can use this strength to please the weak and not ourselves.

Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit all self must vanishes so Christ can be uplifted.

I thank God for Jesus.

If Jesus spent all night in prayer then why do we think we need so little?

Jesus would arise early in the morning and go outside and find a place of seclusion to pray. He spent time with the Father and received strength. It allowed Him to resist temptation. It allowed Him to succeed in His mission.

TRUST IS A MUST ( :

“The Lord is good a stronghold in the time of trouble, He knows those who trust in him. “-Nahum 1:7

Trust is an important component of every relationship.

“Trust” is  a “Must”.

When Nahum echoed,”the Lord is a stronghold in the time of trouble.” he did not stop there ,he added “He knows those who trust Him. ”

Trust and belief are strongly interelated and almost if not inseparable.

If you believe then you must trust.

You must trust in your belief and that makes it complete.

If you  trust in His promises .

If you  trust in His word.

Then you must trust in him who promised and said.

You must trust God.

As come closer to God through our relationship with Christ each must come under the trust of the Lord as guided by the Holy Spirit.

Through daily Bible study, Prayer and meditation our belief and trust must grow and strengthen.

The more I pray,study and meditate  the more I  trust in His goodness and the more I am  identified together with Him.

So I  “Must”

I  must become one with Christ as Christ one is one with God.

I must study, pray and meditate.

I must grow closer to God.

I think as I  draw closer to His glory I  must appear like Him.

Then I must be more noticeable before God.

How much I trust Him must become the measure of how much He knows me.

Trust must become the measure of how much He knows me? Yes.

Through trust my will must be  brought into submission of His will.

Same thing to you.

Same thing if you believe and trust.

Do you see the mental picture ?

Isn’t it beautiful thing?

I Praise God for this beautiful path of trust I must tread on  today.

HOW AM I LIVING TODAY?

“By the power of the Saviour that dwelt in them while living and because they were partakers of the divine nature, they are brought forth from the dead. FLB 185.2”

How am I  living today?

Do I have the power of the saviour dwelling in me?

Am I a partaker of His divine nature? (see 2 Peter 1:4)

If my answers to all these questions are negative and then I  happen to die today  then I have no hope in the resurrection.

On the contrary, if I am living with Christ as my personal saviour and have Him as my best friend.

If I  have the power of the Saviour in me.

That is if I pray daily, have Bible study and meditation then I am safe.

I also begin to bear good fruit to the glory of the Father.

Then I also expirience the power of God by His Holy Spirit guiding me in everything I do.

If I die on the way, there is good hope.

Hope to be brought forth from the sleep when the redeemer comes.

If I am living well with Christ then I have nothing to  worry about.

I can live happily  and die happily and the next instant wake up happily into the glorious morn of the resurrection to be caught up with the Lord. (see 1 Thes 4:16)

I Praise God for His spiritual  interest in me  today.

If I love God with all my heart, all my soul and all my mind.

Surely I must not give up on Him nor  spit on His face and overlook Him and His ways.

Through Bible study, Prayer and meditation we all can live to to the standards of Christ.

I Praise God for making provision for us all.

HAVE WE FORGOTTEN?

“I will remember the works of the
LORD: surely I will remember thy
wonders of old.” Psalms 77:11

In one way or another most of us get very much concerned about what happens  next.

When we are sick.

When we lack .

When destitute.

And when things seem to go all quite.
Yes , we get dissapointed and  often tend to spend more time on our situation.

As though capable of providing the best solutions to our  problems,we spend long hours of struggle   thinking  deeply and steadily.

Yet we remain helpless and distressed.

In fact, we  suffer mental suppression and depression.

It’s not untrue, when we look so much at our hard moments, this is exactly what happens.

We begin to crumble and stumble off the journey.

I know sometimes we appear brave and strong before the storm but when it strikes we often are the weakest to fall.

As a result, we tend to forget  God and His promises.

Forgetting God? Yes forgetting God.

Sounds terrible, right?

It certainly is.

However, through Bible study, prayer and meditation we are brought in contact with the Sovereign loving God.

Our provider and sustainer.

Our only hope and comfort.

The reason of our existence.
Through  daily  Bible study, Prayer and meditation are we  not only bestowed with power but instilled with it as an eternal shield of life.

Our thoughts are constantly yield above.

We cast our cares upon Him alone who is able to save us from death.

Through Prayer we talk to Him and He hears us.

Through Study we are brought in contact with Him and we become triumphant.

Through meditation He talks to us and we have the blessed assurance .

I thank God for His channel.

Today if I will not forget then I am at peace not only with man but we God.

Isn’t  it beautiful thing?

I Praise God for His way.
