Apart from Him

John‬ ‭15‬:‭5‬ – “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” Can you imagine a life without Jesus? Those of us who know Him and have tasted His love, cannot even think of […]

Created for good work

Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭10 – “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Imagine a potter fashioning a clay vessel on his wheel. Even before he puts the lump of clay on the wheel, he has a basic idea of what the finished product […]

Humble yourself

‭1 Peter‬ ‭5‬:‭6-7 – “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” We live in a generation that craves recognition. Whether it is the number of ‘likes’ on a Facebook status update, or words of praise from a boss, […]

The righteous will flourish

Psalm 92:12-14 – “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.” One pattern that seems consistent through much of the Old Testament and the New Testament is that God is on […]

God, our shield

Psalm 3:3:  But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. The psalmist acknowledges God as his shield or in other words God is his defence.  God is also his glory as well as the lifter up of his head.  These are the three things that the […]

Planted by the rivers

Psalm 1:3:  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season, his leaf also shall not wither and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. A person who loves God and does what He says is favoured by the Lord.  A tree on a river […]

Excellent spirit

Daniel 6:3:  Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes because an excellent spirit was in him and the king thought to set him over the whole realm. Daniel had an excellent spirit in him.  He was preferred above the presidents and the princes because of the excellent spirit.  He was a man […]

Bearing fruits

Matthew 3:8:  Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance. All those of us who are saved and baptized need to bear fruits that are worthy of salvation.  Our life and our character should match.  We cannot have a holy life at a holy place and behave erratically outside the holy place.  We cannot have a […]

Pray continually

I Thessalonians 4:2:  Continue in prayer and watch in the same with thanksgiving. Prayer is the vital source of energy to grow in the Lord.  Jesus, when he was on the earth, prayed for long hours to His Father. He communed with Him every single day irrespective of His busy ministerial life. We should also […]
