He Will Always Be With Us :

When Christ lives in us, our whole nature is
uplifted. His Spirit, His love, humbles our hearts and turns our thoughts and desires
toward God and heaven.

Even after Jesus returned to heaven, His
followers still felt His presence with them.

They felt His love and light. Jesus, the Saviour, had walked and talked and prayed
with them.

He had spoken words of hope and comfort.
And while He was giving them His message of peace, He had been taken up from them into heaven.

As the cloud of angels received Him, the disciples had heard Him say, " I am with you always, even until the end of the World" ( Matthew 28: 20, KJV).

Christ Is :

He is the " eternal light" (Isaiah 60:19).
He is " a sun and a shield" (Psalm 84:11,
KJV). He is like "rain in a dry land"
( Hosea 14:15), like rain on the fields"
(Psalm 72:6). He is the living water and
"the bread of God.... which comes down
from heaven, and gives life to the world"
(John 6:33, RSV).

God gave a wonderful gift to the world
His Son. This unequaled gift has circled
the world with grace, like the air, which is
everywhere.

It is as real as the air we breathe. If we choose to receive this life- giving grace
of Christ, we will live and grow up to
become men and women in Christ Jesus.

The flower turns to the sun to receive it's
bright rays. The light helps the flower

become beautiful and perfect. So we should
turn to Christ, the Sun of Righteousness.

Heaven's light will then shine upon us, and
our character will grow into His likeness.

Jesus teaches us this lesson when He
says, "Remain united to me, and I will
remain united to you.

A branch cannot bear fruit by itself; it can do
so only if it remains in the vine... You can do
nothing without me" (John 15:4,5). We must
depend on Christ in order to live a holy life,
just as branches depend on the vine for growth.

Apart from Him we have no life. Away from
Him we will have no power to fight against
sin or to grow in grace and holiness.

But when we live in Him, we grow and bear fruit.We will be like a tree planted by a river.

God bless you in Jesus name I pray Amen.


Psalms 119 V 105
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

Do You Have A Unforgiving Spirit :

When we come to ask mercy and blessing
from God we should have a spirit of love and
forgiveness in our own 💓.

How can we pray, "Forgive us our Debts, as
we forgive our debtors" ( Matthew 6:12), and
yet indulge an unforgiving Spirit? If we expect our own prayers to be heard we must

forgive others in the same manner and to
the same extent as we hope to be forgiven.

Perseverance in prayer has been made a
condition of receiving. We must pray always if we would grow in faith and experience.

We are to be "instant in prayer" ( Romans 12:12 ), to "continue in payer, and watch in
the same with Thanksgiving" (Colossians 4:2).

Rhapsody of Realities . Believe And Affirm . Friday, Dec 08 . Pastor Chris "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:10)." . Man is a spirit being, and not a body. His physical body is his domicile, where the spirit, the real man, lives. Your body isn’t you. Your spirit is the real you, and every human spirit has the capacity to believe; you don’t have to see to believe. . This debunks the...

I’ve read Genesis dozens of times, but this time I noticed something for the first time in the story of Joseph and Potiphar. Not that it is of any great theological importance, but what I saw caught my attention for a few moments. You’ll find the vignette in chapters 39-41.

In 39:1, Potiphar is called “captain of [Pharaoh’s] bodyguard” – a position similar to the Chief of the U.S. President’s Secret Service.

Potiphar had purchased Joseph as his slave, and eventually, Joseph rose to what we might call, “Head Butler” of Potiphar’s household. If you remember the story, in time, Potiphar’s wife falsely accused Joseph of attempted rape and Potiphar threw Joseph into prison (it is of interest that Potiphar did not have Joseph executed.

(It’s has been theorized that Potiphar did not believe his wife’s accusation, but could not take the word of a slave against his wife’s. But that is another discussion).

So, Joseph is now in prison where the jail’s warden soon put Joseph into a position of rank among the prisoners. You’d think that by this time Potiphar was done with the guy and had forgotten all about him. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.

In 40:4, “the captain of [Pharaoh’s] bodyguard” (Potiphar) put Joseph in charge of two recently incarcerated special prisoners (Pharaoh’s personal chef and butler). Apparently, Potiphar was not only still keeping tabs on Joseph, but he considered him worthy of supervising those special prisoners.

Then in 41:12 – which occurs two full years later—Joseph is still called “a servant of the captain of the bodyguard” (i.e. Potiphar).

As I said, this likely has little theological value – at least, none that I can see – but I’d never noticed that Potiphar seemed to have a continued ‘trusting’ relationship with Joseph all those years, even after his wife’s false charges.

Maybe 39:21 holds a key. It occurs after Potiphar throws Joseph into prison. The text reads: “But the Lord was with Joseph and extended kindness to him, and gave him favor in the sight of the chief jailer.”

Perhaps there is a theological point after all: Trust God. Always do the right thing. God will forever stand by your side.

We Must Humble Ourselves Before God :

And admit that we have sinned. This is the
first rule for being accepted by God. If we
have not repented and humbled ourselves,
confessing our sins, we have not truly asked
for forgiveness. If we do not hate our sins, we do not truly want to be forgiven, and we do not truly want to be forgiven, and we do

not find the peace of God. If we have not been forgiven for our sins, the only reason is that we are not willing to humble ourselves.


We are not willing to follow the rules set
forth in the Bible. God has carefully told us what we are to do.We must open our hearts
and freely admit we have sinned.

We should not do this in a light or careless
way. Nor should we be forced to do it.

We must realize how bad sin is, and hate
it.If we truly confess, pouring out our hearts
to God, He will hear us.

The Psalmist, David, wrote, " The Lord is
nigh unto them that are of a broken heart ;

And saveth such as be a contrite Spirit" ( Psalm 34:18 ).

Has Your Heart Been Changed ?

If our hearts have been changed by the
Spirit of God, our lives will show the change.

We cannot change our hearts or make our
characters like God's. We must not trust in
our own strength or believe that our good
deeds will save us.

But our lives will show whether we have the grace of God in our hearts. It will change our
characters, our habits, and the way we live.

Other people will see the difference between
what we used to be and what we now are.
The character is not shown by one good
deed or even a bad one.

The character is shown by the way we speak and act day after day.

God bless you all and have a blessed night
in Jesus name Amen.
