Mission Impossible

The Apostle Peter writes that we must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose us is holy - but how could we possibly even approach God’s holiness as we live our lives? We believe God is holy, but for us to be holy the way He is holy feels like an impossible standard to attain. Why are we being commanded to do something that seems to be completely impossible?

Death and Life are in the Power of the Tongue

Each and every day we speak many words; some are carefully planned and selected; others are spoken impulsively. Some are spoken quietly; others are spoken with more volume. Some of our words are spoken with the desire to help and encourage; some with the motivation to hurt, belittle and retaliate. However, most of our words are spoken with little, if any, thought about how they will affect others. James speaks to us about the importance of every word we speak. For each word will make an impact, not only on those to whom they’re directed, but also on God who records, evaluates and will judge every careless spoken word.

The Power of One

No matter how much there is to divide us: our likes and dislikes, our race, our economic status, our language our profession; the Gospel unites us – one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God. By showing these qualities in our lives: humility, gentleness, patience and enduring love; we will keep the unity that God has created and given us by His Holy Spirit. Our unity will be a testimony to a world that is divided in many ways. We will be living in a way that is worthy of our calling as Christians as our lives will speak of the glorious oneness and fullness of the Gospel.

Powerful!

It doesn’t make sense to that Almighty God would have us, His children, characterized by fear and insecurity and apathy and lukewarmness. He has put His Spirit in us so that we can be known for our power. His power in us, working through us for the furtherance of His Kingdom upon the earth. Christ said it is better for us that the Spirit came, live like you know that is true. Move from knowledge about the Holy Spirit to experiencing His presence. Draw into deeper communion with the Holy Spirit and experience His power and presence in your life. Don’t keep crawling when you have the ability to fly.

Psalm 19

The universe is designed to glorify God even when we, the pinnacle of creation, do not want to or inadequately do so. But when we do – we join all of creation in directing our attention and affection to God. In unity we proclaim the glory of God as one voice, the voice of creation. There is no excuse for any of us to say that we did not have a chance to know about God because His creation points to Him. The heavens declare the glory of God even when we do not.

“I Am the True Vine”

The word abide/remain is used ten times in John 15, emphasising the importance of remaining and abiding in Christ, staying connected to Him. If we do this then the rest will fall into place. Jesus doesn’t say “work hard” and give the disciples a list of things they must do, He just tells them "remain"! God does not want us to do more for Him but to do more with Him.

“I Am the Resurrection and the Life”

What does it mean to us that Jesus is the resurrection and the life? We do not need to fear death for we know that it is not the end but rather the beginning of eternity. Life is full of unfulfilled dreams and unmet expectations. There are disappointments and struggles. Flaws and failings in us and others. This life will never be enough. When Jesus says that He is the resurrection and the life it gives us hope for the future. All in this life will die, it will all come to an end, but there is new life in Jesus. What was dead will be reborn. In Him death becomes new life and the life lived in Christ will always be enough!

“I Am the Bread of Life”

Don’t focus your life and your efforts on food that spoils. Focus your life and your efforts on the food that will enable you to live forever. Today as you think of your own life, what do you focus your life on? What needs do you spend most of your time trying to satisfy? Jesus isn’t saying don’t have a good career, a nice house, leisure activities, or money in the bank. But He is saying, “Don’t labour for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life. I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry.”
