Growing in Christ: All About Jesus

Goooooood morning King Jesus! Goooood morning family and friends..

Philippians 3:3The Message (MSG)
2-6 Steer clear of the barking dogs, those religious busybodies, all bark and no bite. All they’re interested in is appearances—knife-happy circumcisers, I call them. The real believers are the ones the Spirit of God leads to work away at this ministry, filling the air with Christ’s praise as we do it. We couldn’t carry this off by our own efforts, and we know it—even though we can list what many might think are impressive credentials. You know my (Paul)pedigree: a legitimate birth, circumcised on the eighth day; an Israelite from the elite tribe of Benjamin; a strict and devout adherent to God’s law; a fiery defender of the purity of my religion, even to the point of persecuting the church; a meticulous observer of everything set down in God’s law Book.

7-9 The very credentials these people are waving around as something special, I’m tearing up and throwing out with the trash—along with everything else I used to take credit for. And why? Because of Christ. Yes, all the things I once thought were so important are gone from my life. Compared to the high privilege of knowing Christ Jesus as my Master, firsthand, everything I once thought I had going for me is insignificant—dog dung. I’ve dumped it all in the trash so that I could embrace Christ and be embraced by him. I didn’t want some petty, inferior brand of righteousness that comes from keeping a list of rules when I could get the robust kind that comes from trusting Christ—God’s righteousness.

It's not about you or me! It's all about Christ that shines through us to the world!

Spiritual Coffee: Pride...

Gooooood morning King Jesus! Gooooood morning family and friends!

Though right now I really would love a slice of carrot cake for breakfast! LOL I will have to be satisfied with my spiritual breakfast, and a bowl of ice cold milk, and cereal!! LOL

And it reads...
2 Corinthians 10:17-18 However, let him who boasts and glories boast and glory in the Lord.
18 For [it is] not [the man] who praises and commends himself who is approved and accepted, but [it is the person] whom the Lord accredits and commends.

King Nebuchadnezzar greatest fall! (Daniel 4:28-36) Praising himself instead praising God, the one who gives us ...

Wisdom: James 1:5 
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Strength: Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Wealth: Deuteronomy 8:18
“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

Health:Psalm 103:3
Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,

Life:Jeremiah 1:5 
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

Christ is the Alpha and the Omega the beginning and the end! All praise and honor belongs to Him and Christ alone! Pride always causes a nasty fall! Alway remember who has given you what you have to be standing strong today... It is The Lord!! 

Enjoy your Monday, love Sis Rashida...

Growing in Christ: words of our mouth

Philippians 2:14 Do all things without grumbling and faultfinding and complaining [against God] and questioning and doubting [among yourselves],

I am constantly reminding my children to do everything without murmuring and complaining. From cleaning their rooms , or doing their homework; it is a constant battle to get things done without an eye rolling, huffing and puffing attack! 

Teaching them that the words of their mouth produces life or death ! Blessing or cursing! The words of their mouth should always be chosen wisely ... Note this verse...

Matthew 12:36 But I tell you, on the day of judgment men will have to give account for every idle (inoperative, nonworking) word they speak.

It is easy to murmur and complain and become stagnate! Just as it is very easy let our words be pleasing unto God!

Psalm 19:14
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my [firm, impenetrable] Rock and my Redeemer.

Goooood morning King Jesus ! Gooood morning family and friends! Love Sis Rashida

Growing in Christ: Loving God's word



You know when your bible reading time is getting into your Spirit, when you find yourself talking to your bible! LOL 

I found myself this morning talking to my bible, while shouting..." You can say that again!" "Speak to me Lord"! Then quickly looked around to make sure the kids didn't think I lost my mind! LOL

My spiritual breakfast for today...
2 Peter 3 New King James Version (NKJV)

God’s Promise Is Not Slack
3 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us,[a] the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

Jesus is coming back, be ready!!

Growing in Christ: Filthy Rags

There is absolutely nothing we could do, on our "own" to be considered righteous in God's sight! No good works nor good deeds...

You could sing the best song, quote a million of scriptures, pray every night, and even give to the poor! None of these " works" makes us righteous before God.

Isaiah 64:6 
But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away.

Galatians 2:21
I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.”

What makes us righteous is the blood of Jesus!
What makes us sinless is the blood of Jesus!
What makes us in right standing before the King of kings is the blood of Jesus!

His Blood covers it all! Christ took ALL your sins, every last one of them, and now you are the RIGHTEOUSNESS of Christ, through "faith" in Christ Jesus!

All you have to do is accept His invitation of redemption in "faith", and walk this life in His righteousness!
Philippians 3:9
and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;
