Receive Favor

Monday, August 11, 2014

Proverbs 8:35 - For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord.

Many are searching and finding in this world, and everyone has a different goal to achieve in life. Some are looking for prosperity, some are looking for health, some are looking for love, and some are looking for freedom. You might be one of them searching and looking all these years, and you end up wounded and found that everything just turn you down. That's why we are unable to rely on human being or even our surroundings, because whatever that we can see are all temporary and what we cannot see are eternal. That's why you just have to rely on Jesus Christ and him alone because only He is eternal and forever.

Therefore, today if you are discouraged by all the circumstances around you, remember that there is one direction that you can always run to! That is to the embrace of your Father in Heaven. It says here in Proverbs that whoever finds me finds life. So, today when you find Jesus, you will find life! Life in terms on not only breath, but also health, sound mind, peace, goodness, prosperity and good relationships with family! This is exactly the life that God wants to bless you with!

Not only that, you will receive favor from the Lord! how wonderful when you are searching for Him and beholding Jesus, you will see life and favor manifest in your life! It means wherever you are, you find favor in people's eyes. You have no idea why people will just help you and show favor on you! It is all because of God's glory are manifesting on you when you choose to find Jesus and behold His beauty all the time!

So find Him today in the Words of God, and you will find life and receive favor super abundantly!

因着神的恩典

Saturday, August 9, 2014

林前 15:10 然而我今日成了何等人,是蒙神的恩才成的;并且他所赐我的恩不是徒然的。我比众使徒格外劳苦,这原不是我乃是神的恩与我同在。
林后 12:9 他对我说:“我的恩典够你用,因为我的能力是在人的软弱上显得完全。”所以,我更喜欢夸自己的软弱,好叫基督的能力覆庇我。

嗨,被爱的,你今天好吗?无论你身处于什么环境,不管你正在面对什么,你当知道你是被拣选被大大祝福的,你是被召成为众人的祝福,并且是在生命中掌权的。
你当知道你所持有的身份,那就是神国度的国籍,是带有能力和权柄的,是能够战胜一切环境的!
凭着神的恩,你是健康的!
凭着神的恩,你是富足的!
凭着神的恩,你是完全被保护的的!
凭着神的恩,你靠着那加给你力量的凡事都能做的!
凭着神的恩,你是居上不居下的!
凭着神的恩,你是满有恩惠的!
凭着神的恩,你是深深被爱的!
凭着神的恩,你是大受祝福的!
凭着神的恩,机会是追随着你的!
凭着神的恩,祝福的门为你而开!
凭着神的恩,你能成就超乎你所能想象的!

所以,不要让你的生命只停滞于现状,而开始使用神所赐你的恩典。
亲爱的朋友,开始经历突破并且见证神如何带领你走过。从现在开始,你的生命应当是得胜有余的生命,因为你有耶稣和神的恩典。

He Took Your Sufferings

Saturday, August 9, 2014

Matthew 8:17 - ..... He took our suffering on him. And he felt our pain for us.

What kind of pain that you are having right now? Be it physical, or emotionally, if you think that there is no cure for this, then you are wrong. There is always solution when you come to Jesus! Do you know that at the cross He suffered for you, He took all the sufferings that was supposed to be on us and made an exchange with us at the cross. Therefore now you are at the place that Jesus was supposed to have, you now can enjoy all the inheritance, blessings and life more abundantly!

Do bear in mind that no problems, no sicknesses, no sufferings that can be greater than Jesus. He bore it all at the cross, so therefore you are no longer sick! The moment when you feel that pain physically or emotionally, remember Jesus who died for you at the cross, who loves you everlasting, and who takes care of all your need. He proved His love for you by laying down His life solely for you! So that now, by His stripes, you have already been healed! You are not going to get heal, but you are healed! You are not going to be set free, but you are already free indeed! You are not going to get what you do not have, instead you are already having them and they are yours!

Therefore, fight a good fight of faith by focusing on what Jesus has purchased for you. Healing is your right, it is your bread, it belongs to you, keep it and never ever let the devil fool you again by telling you "you are forever sick", no, tell him back that " In Christ, I am so healthy and strong! As Christ is healthy and strong, so am I in this world!"

By The Grace Of God

Friday, August 8, 2014

1Co 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.
2Co 12:9 But he said to me," My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Hi beloved, how are you today? No matter what situation are you in right now, regardless what are the things that you are facing right now, do know that you are chosen to be greatly blessed, called to be a blessing and destined to reign in life.
You are to know the identity you are holding, which is the citizenship of God's kingdom, who is with power and authority, is the one who can overcome all circumstances!
By the grace of God, you are healthy!
By the grace of God, you are prosperous!
By the grace of God, you are well protected!

So, do not let your life stagnant but to start using the grace of God.
Dear friend, start to experience a breakthrough and see how God leads you through. From now on, you shall live a victorious life because you have Jesus and the grace of God.

恩典的大能

Friday, August 8, 2014

何谓恩典?就是你不配得,但神还是白白的赐给你,这就是恩典。很多时候,因着律法,人们总觉得自己不配得,总要等到觉得自己能够的时候才愿意回到神的面前。其实,有哪个人是洗完澡,弄干净了自己,还要再次洗澡的?同样的,今天我们在神的国度里,当我们口里承认,心里相信基督为主,我们就已经成为圣洁,并且这圣洁不是我们自己能靠自己做成的,乃是神所赐的恩。我们没有能力让我们的罪被赦,我们不能靠自己成为圣洁,唯有靠着耶稣基督的血我们才能。

因着律法,我们常觉得自己是罪人,不配得领受神的一切丰盛的恩典。但是,你可否知道?律法本是外添的,叫过犯显多;只是罪在哪里显多,恩典就更显多了。(罗 5:20)正因为如此,更让我们看见我们的不能,我们是需要一个救主帮助我们,使我们能成为义,而这个救主就是耶稣基督。唯有祂,是不纪念我们的过犯和罪愆(希 10:17);唯有祂,在我们还作罪人的时候,就为我们死(罗5:8);唯有祂,明知我们不配得,祂还是定意爱我们到底。(约 13:1不但如此,神的恩典领我们悔改,并且让我们成为新造的人,一切都重新再来,如今,我们在祂里面是完全的、是圣洁的、是毫无瑕疵的、是得着义的、是得胜有余的!)如此的恩典,我们又如何能错过呢?

朋友们,不要靠自己的感觉来断定自己配不配得,因为这不是你能做决定的,乃是耶稣基督。祂早已为了你我牺牲了自己,完成那救赎的工作。如今,凡相信基督的人都是义人,都能领受恩典的大能,都能够来到神的施恩宝座前,得怜恤,蒙恩惠,做那随时的帮助。(希 4:16)阿门!

Good News

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Romans 1:16- I am proud of Good News. It is the power God uses to save everyone who believes.

The world may be full of bad news at this time, people are living in fear and insecurity, people are striving to survive and get better. But do you know that when Jesus comes, He is not here to give you bad news, but He himself is the Good News! What is Good News for one who is in lack? That is he never lack anymore! What is Good News for one who is sick? That is he is healed! What is Good News for one who is in fear? That is he shall no longer live in fear!
Therefore, know that as you come to Jesus, He is the one who brings good news to you. Regardless what may happen around you, remember that your good news, your turnaround happens in Christ!

Therefore, the good news of God is the power of God. It is powerful enough to save everyone who BELIEVES. Hence, the condition for you to encounter this power is to believe! Believe that your Father in Heaven loves you! Believe that He is a good shepherd and you shall never be in want! Believe that when you are in His love, there is no fear! Believe that right now you are a new creation, the old has gone and the new has come! Believe that when no one cares about you, you have Jesus who daily bears your burden! Believe that in Christ there is no more condemnation! Believe that by one sacrifice, your sin has been removed! Believe in Jesus and all that He has done for you is what you need to do, and guess what? It is the very power of God uses to save! You shall see your life move on with power and courage!

Be proud of the good news today! It has already given to you through Jesus Christ, therefore, be rejoice and never look at what happen at your surroundings and count how many bad news has happened, instead count the blessings of God and remember His goodness, stay in His court is far more better than staying outside!

原谅

Thursday, August 7, 2014

以赛亚书43:18-19耶和华如此说:“你们不要纪念从前的事,也不要思想古时的事。看哪,我要做一件新事,如今要发现,你们岂不知道吗?我必在旷野开道路,在沙漠开江河。

每个人都有无知犯错的时候,也需要被饶恕与接纳,得着新的机会,这就是耶稣为我们上十字架的原因与结果。若你被人原谅过,又何苦不原谅别人,而把自己困在这过犯的痛苦中呢?

可知道对方只伤害了你一次,也许是无心的。但是,当你总是耿耿于怀,就是逼迫自己回到当时,自己又再伤害了自己一次,让自己陷入痛苦的深渊里。想要有更新,更棒,更蒙福的生命,就得放下过去的一切;当你向前奔跑时,是义无反顾的往前冲。

没有太大太难的问题,耶稣不能解决;没有太深太痛的伤害,耶稣不能抚平;让你的心被神的爱充满,领受祂的爱。你会发现,纵然有问题在生活当中,有了耶稣,盼望在其中,生命依然是美好的。阿们!

First Importance

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Ephesians 1:21 - God made Christ more important than all rulers, authorities, powers and kings. Christ is more important than anything in this world or in the next world.

Things that we value as important vary among individuals, some may see money as their first importance, some may see their family as the first importance, some may see their careers as the first importance; however, evaluating all these things that we value so much and so important, none of these last forever. It is of course that all these things are important, but in the end of the day, what is our FIRST importance out of all these things? The Word of God says Christ is MORE important than anything in this world. Jesus Christ should be at the first place among all the "first" we have in our lives! Many would have thought that this God is a dictator, but He is not. It is biblical as stated in Colossians 1:17-18 that Christ was there before anything was made. And all things continue because of him. He is the head of the body. Everything comes from Him. And He is the first one who raised from death. So in all things Jesus is most important.

If you will put Christ as the most important out of your 100 other important things, you can be sure that He is well able to take care of all the rest! Therefore, instead of putting your fear, your emotion, your feeling as the first, put Christ as the first! But how? In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1), therefore as you start to put the Word of God as the first importance in your life, you shall see that the rest that you concerned of shall be well taken by Him! Being as a child of God, just trust your Daddy God enough that He is well able to do it!

与基督亲密的关系

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

在我们的一生中,会有许许多多的关系存在。有亲人之间的关系;有爱情之间的关系;有友情之间的关系;有工作伙伴的关系;有上司与下属的关系;还有许许多多的关系等等。我们都希望所有的关系能够维持的好,维持的密切,但是很多时候现实却是与我们所想要的有差落。若要有好的关系,彼此的信任和互相的尊重是非常需要的。但不可缺少的乃是要有良好的沟通。同样的今天,我们与基督若要有密切的关系,不可少的就是与神沟通,与祂联系。要如何与基督联系呢?就是通过神的话,通过祷告。
朋友们,想想看。一对在热恋中的情侣,是无时无刻都挂念着对方,常常都在找机会与对方联系,恨不得能二十四小时呆在对方的身边。同样的今天,当我们说我们与基督谈恋爱,那我们的生命不可能常忙到忘了与我们的亲密爱人联系的,不是吗?我们不会有很多的藉口来告诉自己,没空或是不能与神沟通的。你知道吗?耶稣基督二十四小时都在等我们与祂亲近,等我们联系祂。很多时候当祂要找我们,与我们谈恋爱的时候,我们却以“忙”当借口,匆匆忙忙的就离开了。等到问题出现,人们又开始埋怨为何神这样那样了。
我们若甘心听从神的话,祂必让我们吃那地上的美物。(赛 1:19)我们每天的生活都需要耶稣基督的同在,而祂是不撇下我们,也从来不曾丢弃我们,祂是爱我们到底的神。(书 1:5,约 13:1)祂要与我们有密切的关系,祂不愿看到祂所爱的人活在问题当中。我们原是祂的工作,祂必作成祂的工,并且确保祂所造的我们是完美的。今天我们不能靠自己变得完美,但是那造我们的主却能。试问看,在这世上的人类,当他们创造了一样物品,他们肯定确保这物品是完美的,若有一点点的瑕疵,他们也会想办法改善,使这物品成为最好的。同样的今天,当神创造了我们,就算我们在成长过程中或许犯错了,或许跌倒了,或许迷失了,但是神的慈爱却是领我们悔改,再次回到祂面前的,并且祂的恩典够我们用,使我们能重新得力,再次的勇往向前。
朋友们,让我们与基督有密切的关系,知道并且明白祂的旨意,好让我们在这世上的路程是祂所引领的,是能够顺利亨通,是居上不居下的。阿门!

His Love Watches Over You

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

Psalm 89:28 - My love will watch over him forever. My agreement with him never end.

It is such an assurance to know that the love of God is watching over you day and night. When His love is watching over you, you can be sure that you are not afraid of any evil, no pestilence and harm can come near you. Ultimately in the love of God there is no fear! Therefore regardless how many bad news is surrounding you, keep yourself focus on His love and you shall find rest in Him.

Not only that, His agreement with you shall never end. Man made promises may fail, but when God is here to have a covenant with you, this covenant shall last forever! In a covenant, it signifies that all that belong to Him are yours, and all that you have is His; He is your covenant partner, and if you are in lack, you can just say "Jesus, where is our cheque book?"! As this covenant is bonded by the blood of Jesus, you can be sure that as you come to the throne of grace, you can find help and favor in times of need!

Just simply focus on His love today, remember that you have the best covenant partner, He loves you, He watches over you, He is your shield, He is your Comforter, He is your all in all!

改变你的思维

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

我們常让負面思想、話語和其它可怕的細菌进入我們的思想,这不知不觉地改变我們的軟件,破坏我們的知识或价值观。我們是依照上帝的形像受造,甚 至在我們受造之前,祂就設定我們有個丰盛的生命,要喜乐、健康與完整地活着。祂来不是要定我们的罪,乃是藉着祂的独生爱子来救赎我们(约翰3:17-18)。
但因着我們的思想被世界的想法深刻的影响,很难顺服遵行上帝的話,我们的肉体常常与神的话敌对(加拉太书5:17)。當你意识到這些事情正在发生,你必須重新設定電腦;你必須改变你的思維模式。要了解,你不是瑕疵品,你是上帝精心所造,而且祂設定你得勝。但除非你依照創造者的使用手冊來运作,也就是上帝的話語,否則將永远無法充分發挥你的潛能。惟有那位造你的上帝最了解你,认识你。
所以,要将你的心志改换一新,穿上新人,就是你在基督里的新身份。当你坚心倚赖祂,祂必必保守你十分平安,纵然还是会有软弱犯错的时刻,在基督里,依然是义人。阿们!

Your Protection

Monday, August 4, 2014

The world might be bombarding you with news of new deadly viruses that has killed thousands, but do you know that you are under the wings of the God Almighty? Under His refuge, you can be sure that you are well taken care of.
Therefore, let's meditate the verses below, make it your daily meditation, and you shall find rest and confidence in the Word.

Psalm 91:1-16
Those who go to God Most High for safety will be protected by God All-Powerful.
I will say to the Lord "You are my place of safety and protection. You are my God, and I trust you."
God will save you from hidden traps and from deadly diseases.
He will protect you like a bird spreading its wing over its young. His truth will be like your armor and shield.
You will not fear any danger by night or an arrow during the day.
You will not be afraid of diseases that come in the dark or sickness that strikes at noon.
At your side 1,000 people may die, or even 10,000 right beside you. But you will not be hurt.
You will only watch what happens. You will see the wicked punished.
The Lord is your protection. You have made God Most High your place of safety.
Nothing bad will happen to you. No disaster will come to your home.
He has put his angels in charge of you. They will watch over you wherever you go.
They will catch you with their hands. And you will not hit your foot on a rock.
You will walk on lions and cobras. You will step on strong lions and snakes.
The Lord says "If someone loves me, I will save him. I will protect those who know me.
They will call to me, and I will answer them. I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue them and honor them.
I will give them a long, full life. They will see how I can save.

茁壮的成长

Monday, August 4, 2014

起初,神创造天地,又造了这世上的所有一切,包括了一切生物。而每个生物,无论是人类,是植物,或是任何的动物,都是有生命的,会成长的。而每个成长阶段,都会面对各样的问题。我们人类也一样,并且我们面对的会比其他的生物更多,因为我们是照着神的形象被造的,而且我们有神的气息。在这世上,我们会面对许许多多的问题,每天一睁开眼睛已经有很多的事情在等着我们,若是一个不留神,我们便会陷入那问题中,进而被影响了。

朋友们,我们要用对的态度来面对问题。若要有对的态度,就要有对的根基,对的相信。而这个对的根基就是耶稣基督,此外没有人可以立别的根基在我们的生命中。(林前 3:11)当基督成为我们的根基,我们的生命肯定不倒塌,因为祂是那稳固的磐石,并且祂胜过这是世界,所以在这世上没有什么能胜过耶稣基督。我们若要在世上过着得胜的生活,我们的生命就肯定要连接于耶稣基督,因为离了祂我们不能做什么。(约 15:5)同样的,若要看到我们的生命在这世上是茁壮成长,得胜有余的话,那么神的话不可离开我们的眼目,总要刻在心版上,昼夜思想。当我们这样行的时候,我们就能过着作首不做尾,居上但不居下的生命。

神的话就像我们生命的养分,当我们一直不停地吸取那养分,我们的生命就能一直不停地往前走,往上攀。如同一颗树,用了足够的养分,它就能一直的往上伸延,长成坚固茁壮的大树。我们的生命也如此,当我们的眼目不离开神的话,单单定睛在基督的身上,谨守遵行祂所说的一切话,我们肯定也必在这世上是坚固,不容易倒塌的。阿门!

信而见

Monday, August 4, 2014

希伯来书11:27-「他恆心忍耐,如同看見那不能看見的主。」

在我们的生活当中,我们时常一時冷,一時热;一時高,一時低;這是什么原因呢?原因就是我们时常被眼见的迷惑了,我们本該以上帝為中心的,卻去以環境为中心了。但上帝要我們在每一件事物上都看見祂,时刻仰望祂,称颂高举祂的名。

我們一直過着一上一下的生活,这是一种倚靠環境的信心,但上帝不要我们这样,圣经说我们行事为人要凭着信心,不要凭着眼见(哥林多后书5:7)。世界告訴我們【见而信】,但是上帝要我們【信而見】。耶稣是昨日、今日、一直到永远都是一样都的(希伯来书13:8)。祂看见我们的未来,祂是时间以外的神,当祂告诉我们不要挂心忧虑时,我们是可以相信祂的,唯有祂是我们最坚固的磐石。

所以保罗说“应当一无挂虑,只要凡事藉着祷告、祈求和感谢,将你们所要的告诉神。神所赐出人意外的平安,必在基督耶稣里,保守你们的心怀意念”(腓立比书4:6-7)。亲爱的朋友,不要让環境来决定你生命的走向,却要让上帝的真理彰显在生命中。信心是相信我們所不見的,信心的酬報就是得着我們所相信的。啊们!

Your Care Taker

Monday, August 4, 2014

Psalm 16:5- No, the Lord is all I need. He takes care of me.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but do know that the Word of God shall never pass away. He has promised to love you with an everlasting love, not only that He has blessed you with all that you need throughout your journey with Him. Therefore, as men are seeking all sorts of ways to help themselves, do be reminded that you have the Lord! When you have Jesus, you have all! He is your all in all! Furthermore, He longs to fill you with all that He has done, and crown you with His glory!

Therefore, all that you need today is Jesus. Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all that you need shall be added! Desire Him along the day, meditate on His love every moment, seek His Word from time to time, and you shall see yourself soak in His love! Most importantly, when no one takes care of you, He takes care of you! How great! Be sure that He is a good care taker, He will make sure all things are well in your life, never be troubled again about your future for He is taking care! Tell yourself today "The Lord takes care of me, He is all that I need!"

You Are Loved

Saturday, August 2, 2014

Jeremiah 31:3 - I have loved you with an everlasting love, I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

Do you know that it is such a comfort and assurance to know that the one and only God who created the heaven and earth is now loving you? The love in this world may be temporal, but His love is from everlasting to everlasting. Regardless what are the hurts that you have gone through, regardless how many promises that people has broken, today just bear in mind that Jesus loves you! Long before you know Him, long before you can do any good to deserve this love, He already loves you! His love is unconditional, it is sacrificial, and ultimately this love can empower you to change!

If you are tired of the journey of your life today, sit down and meditate on His love. He longs to draw you with His unfailing kindness and His everlasting love. All you need to do is to come to your senses and know that you are being deeply loved! The moment when you grasp this truth, it shall set you free from all bondages, fear, insecurity and all! Jesus loves you, do you know that? Let Him embrace you today!

问题不大,耶稣最大

Saturday, August 2, 2014

约一4:4 小子们哪,你们是属神的,并且胜了他们,因为那在你们里面的,比那在世界上的更大。
约16:33 我将这些事告诉你们,是要叫你们在我里面有平安。在世上你们有苦难,但你们可以放心,我已经胜了世界。

亲爱的朋友,在前一刻你经历了什么事情呢?是否有很多问题围绕着你?是否有很多无形的压力把你压倒?也许你刚拿到让你担心的医药报告,或者你刚出席升值的面试让你放不下心,又或许你正在经历有好多人所不能够明白的问题...现在,这里就是让你得释放的地方。这一刻就是你在所有问题中画上句点的时候,并且转向耶稣。
在忧虑的时候,当知道耶稣他最大,他是帮助你战胜忧虑的平安;
在不肯定的当儿,耶稣最大,他是让你战胜不肯定的肯定;
在缺乏的时候,耶稣最大,他的供应永不断缺;
当你生病的时候,耶稣最大,他是使你战胜病痛的医治;
当你软弱的时候,耶稣最大,他的恩典帮助你战胜你一切的软弱;
当你害怕的时候,耶稣最大,当他与你同在,没有什么能够阻挡你。

记得,无论什么,问题,烦恼,挑战,只要你能够命名出来的都不大,因为耶稣才是那最大的!在他里面,你必不惧怕;在他里面,你是得胜有余的!
所以,定睛与他且满心的相信他,因为他就是你的全部!

The Problem Is Not Big, The Biggest Is Jesus

Friday, August 1, 2014

1John4:4 Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
John16:33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

Dear friend, what have you encountered a moment ago? Is there a lot of troubles surrounding you? Is there tonnes of pressure that press you down? Perhaps you just got your medical report that makes you worry, maybe you have just attended an interview for promotion that brings you uncertainty, or there can be even a lot of problems that others might not understand yet you are going through... Right now, here is the place for you to get released. Now is the time for you to put an end on all these problems and turn your focus to Jesus.
In times of worry, know that Jesus is the biggest, He is your peace that helps you to overcome worries;
In times of uncertain, Jesus is the biggest, He is your assurance that helps you to overcome uncertainties;
In times of lacking, Jesus is the biggest, He is your provision that will never end;
When you are sick, Jesus is the biggest, He is your healing that helps you to overcome diseases;
When you are weak, Jesus is the biggest, His grace helps you to overcome all your weaknesses;
When you are afraid, Jesus is the biggest, when He is with you, nothing can be against you.

Remember, no matter what, problems, troubles, challenges, all that you can named out is not big, JESUS is the biggest among all. In Him, you shall not be afraid; In Him, you are more than conquerors!
So, eyes on Him and put your full trust in Him, He is our all in all!

福音的大能

Friday, August 1, 2014

罗 1:16 - 我不以福音为耻;这福音本是神的大能,要救一切相信的,先是犹太人,后是希利尼人。

福音,既是好消息,是让我们生命得着改变的好消息。消息,意思就是已经发生的事情,而福音这好消息是从神而来的,是耶稣基督已经作成的,而不是人为的。福音是神的大能,相信的人凡事都能做。在两千多年前,耶稣基督已作成了一切,祂也知道我们今天一切所需要的,无论是在我们的家庭、事业、健康、经济、关系、学业等等,祂都知道,并且都预备好给我们了,只要我们相信,这一切丰盛都属于我们的。

朋友们,神的儿子耶稣基督就是福音的起头,(可 1:1)一切的好消息都是从祂而来。在耶稣基督为我们走上十字架的时候,一切我们所需要的祂都为我们做成了,但是,为什么人很多时候还是得不着呢?人们总觉得是神的时间,是神的问题,但是其实这所有的耶稣基督都已经做成了,问题并不出于在神身上,而是我们,我们的信心让我们得着。今天,当我们相信的时候,病痛已经被医治;缺乏已经成为富足;软弱已成为刚强;失败已转为成功;凡我们生命中不好的都要变成好。而这一切的转变,不是因为我们的行为,而是神的作为。我们信的有多快,就多快得着!

所以,让福音这好消息能藉着我们得以广传,把我们自己成为神福音的见证,神的广告,让人看见我们是分别为圣的,知道我们是属基督的门徒,好让这好消息能临到每一个人的生命中。因为我们的神是有恩惠,有怜悯的神,祂不愿看见一人沉沦,乃要人人得救。阿门!

You Are In His House

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Ephesians 2:19 - Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household.

Do you know that Jesus has broken the barrier between you and the Father by His body? We were brought near to God never by our own efforts or good behavior, but solely by the blood of Jesus Christ. Because of His one sacrifice, we are perfected forever! Therefore, when there is no longer a barrier between you and the Father, when we are already brought near to God, your identity has changed! We used to be foreigners and aliens, being foreigner and alien means being separated, has no part with the things of God, and without power!

However, the moment when you accepted Jesus, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, you are His fellow citizens, you are His people and ultimately, you are in the household of God! Being a member of His household simply means you have shares in the things of God, you are reconciled, you are now equipped with power! Just like when you are in the household of your own father on earth, you simply enjoy everything in that house! You will not need to plead your mum for food, or kneeling down to your dad in order to get him to send you to school! You can freely enjoy whatever there is in the fridge without paying, and surely your parents will not get you to pay. That is what happen in your normal household, what's more in the household of God! In the household of God, you are His child, you can enjoy whatever it is that Jesus has purchased for you! He has purchased you freedom, love, joy, peace, blessings,and all that you need! He has stored them within you, and all you need to do is to open the fridge and just get whatever you want! God the Father will never ask you to pay, because the payment is Jesus, the Lamb of God! How wonderful!

Therefore, the moment when you know how much that He loves you, you will be more assured of your identity in Christ, you are in His house, hence, you will live life, you will talk, you will react like His child! It's never by force or effort, you can live it out supernaturally natural just because you are already His child, you are already in His household, you are already righteous, you are already being loved, therefore you can!
