Growing in Christ: Get rid of the gunk!

Yesterday, I ended my evening washing a pan out, that had been soaking on the kitchen counter. As I scrubbed away the once hard residue, off the pan. I am reminded of a life of a Christian.

The more time you spend with Christ, the more you become like Him. There is a transformation of the mind; old thinking is slowly replaced with Christ thinking ! Sinful nature, is placed under the authority of a righteous, Christ nature! You become more, and more like Jesus, the longer you saturated yourself in Him... Like that dirty pan, that once had stuck on gunk! It is easily transformed into a clean pan, the longer it soaked in the water! Hallelujah!

(Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.)

The bible tells us here...
Romans 12:2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

The only way that our minds can ever be renewed/ transformed is by the word of God! Reading, studying, and praying. Spending time with our Heavenly Father and soaking in His presence. Allow Christ to wash away everything that hinders our spiritual growth with Christ. Transforming our old ways into His ways!

Today, have you soaked yourself in the word of God? Are you allowing Christ to continue to transform you? Are you reading your bible ?

I love, love, love! How Paul puts HIS TRANSFORMATION ...
Galations 2:20
20 I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.

Paul is one of the greatest example of a transformation! A persecutor of Christian, who recieved a spiritual heart transplant!  

Gooood morning King Jesus !! Gooood morning FB family and friends! Have a blessed Tuesday, love Sis Rashida

Happy Resurrection Sunday!!

Wonderful Easter Sermon from Pastor Chinaemerem...

Walking In Newness Of Life

Romans 6:4 NKJV "Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life."

Something is wrong if after everything Jesus did you are still living and sinning as if you were never saved; something is wrong if after the sufferings of Christ before and on the cross you are still suffering and in the same condition you were before you got born again. Jesus gave us a new life, we should be walking in it now!

Today, a lot of us are celebrating the fact that Jesus died for us, but not many realize that we were in Him the entire time! When He died, we died with Him; when He was buried, we were buried with Him; and when He rose from the dead, we rose with Him! No wonder it says that if any man be in Christ he is a new creature! We are new creatures with a new life, the God life, and God expects us to live it here and now!

Brothers and sisters, if the Son set you free, you are free indeed! Sin has no dominion over you; poverty has no dominion over you; failure has no dominion over you; sickness has no dominion over you; curses have no dominion over you; even death has no dominion over you! Stop living the old life! Get rid of the mentality of the old man; the old man was crucified with Jesus! Choose to enjoy this new life; decide that from today you will walk in it and live it to the full. Become aware of it! Walk in righteousness, holiness, dominion and love.

Happy Easter!

Growing in Christ: Simply just ask

Matthew 7:7-11
Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

It's quite simply ... Just ask Christ!
What do you need today? What are your hearts desire? Have you ask the one who answers prayers? Have you truly ask in faith?

The bible says..
Ephesians 3:20 (NKJV)
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

Remember God is your provider, your keeper, your peace, your everything ! Whatever you need today, stop and ask in prayers! God is more than able to take good care of you! 

Today, step out in FAITH, and Simply Just ask Christ.... And He will always answer back!

Have a bless Thursday in Christ! Love Sis Rashida

Growing in Christ: Joy of the Lord

The bible tells us that the Joy of the Lord is our strength! This morning as I awoke, and got ready to run a few more errands. I felt pretty run down from everything this week! But our gracious, and loving God gently reminded me, about the appointment that I had yesterday. Christ reminded me of several compliments, I received from different people. It made my day a whole lots better!

When we are feeling down God will always use other people to encourage us! Either with a smile, a kind word, or with a word from Christ! Do you need a little encouragement today?

This bible tells you and I, that the Joy of the Lord is our strength! As you listen to the song below. Allow God to fill you with His Joy! Cast every care at His feet, and take up His perfect peace! Remember God is ALWAYS for you! You are Wonderfully, Beautifully, and Created in Christ! He withholds nothing good from you!!

Nehemiah 8:10
Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Growing in Christ: No Weapon!

Don't waste your breath, or strength fighting your enemies!

The bible is so clear. Countless times in the bible. God is seen saying. I will fight your battles, and be still and know that I am God!

When you see your enemies coming against you! Stand still! Sit down and take a seat, and watch the battle that belongs to the Lord. God's word does not lie! He promises that every tongue that rises up against you, He is about to seal it shut. He is about to put your enemies to shame! He is about to lift you up, before those who plot against you!

Proverbs 26:27(NKJV)
27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it,
And he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him.

Psalm 23:5
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

Isaiah 54:17 
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.

God tells us this is our Heritage! Our blessing and covering, that belongs to His children! We have a mighty God that goes into battle for us! 
Note these verses...
Isaiah 59:19
19 So shall they fear
The name of the Lord from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.

Psalm 37  
[ The Heritage of the Righteous and the Calamity of the Wicked ] Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. ...

So instead of worrying about those who oppose you! Pray for them, hold your peace ! This battles is not yours, But The Lords!

Gooooooood morning King Jesus!! Gooood morning family and friends!!
