You are the salt of the earth

You are the salt of the earth.

I would have to admit before the Lord and before you that I do not fully comprehend this. Briefly salt is for flavor and for preservative. But how as Christians can we be flavor and preservative to the world ?

Can anyone help me ?

Receiving and giving

Receiving and giving

I just noticed most of my blogs are about receiving. Receiving salvation, love, mercy, blessing, protection from God. So going straight to the point, let's look at giving. Our God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit is about giving.

According to my electronic Bible there are1931 verses in the Bible that has the word "give", while there are 353 verses with the word "receive".So giving is mentioned about 5 times more than receiving.

Here is a verse from our Lord Jesus about giving as wiritten in Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Let's repeat that:Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Let's pray about this and be blessed and obey.

Two duplicate keys

Two duplicate keys

The other day, i had two duplicate keys done on my lock.I brought only the original key to the store so when i got home i tried the duplicate keys. One worked and the other did not no matter how much I tried. How come ? they looked almost exactly the same.

This reminds me of the two thieves who died with Jesus in Calvary. One repented ,one did not.

Another story as told by our Lord Jesus , two identical houses were built, but one was built on the sand but the other was built on a rock.

Today's modern choice is basically to believe in Jesus or not.Either Jesus is our number one or somebody else.To follow Jesus or not.

I chose Jesus , i hope you do too.

Let your light so shine before men

Let your light so shine before men.

This blog (internet log/ web log) is based on Matthew 5:14-5:16. I believe these verses are addressed to  Christians or believers in Christ or followers of Christ all over the world.

Jesus said you are the light of the world in Matthew 5:14. In John 8:12 Jesus said He is the Light of the world.

comment:  Jesus is the main or true light while we the Christians get our light from Jesus. Like the sun and the moon. We the Christians reflect the light coming from our Lord. We do not make our own light but we receive what we got from Him.

It is interesting that we Christians feel that sometimes we do not reflect the light coming from the Lord. It could be due to some sin in our lives. The Bible says to confess them to the Lord.  Or  our reflection could be like the moon as quarter, half, full moon. The point is let us not condemn ourselves but encourage ourselves in the Lord.

Let's pray that God will use us today or daily,whether in a tiny way or a big way.To God be the glory.

Sometimes i feel like an ant

Sometimes i feel like an ant

There are times when I feel like an ant, that is when i can't measure what i see around me. I am talking about a ministry that is started and blessed by the Lord some years around 1954-to the 70's which produced fruits which still continue today. I am talking about the ministry of our retired pastor who came or resulted from the vision of an American missionary couple.

I believe there will come a time when we still see more of the wonders of the kingdom of God. By faith i will continue to invite people to a life with Jesus, it is not a one day event but a journey that will continue to eternity.

Actually God has been working even before the creation of the world and up to now even through eternity, bigger, greater than we can imagine , think and see.

But through God's grace and mercy we are invited into God's kingdom which we see and will see through faith.

Temptation to stray

Temptation to stray

One of the realities of Christian life is meeting temptation. Even when alone the flesh could say " what's the excitement today ?", " is there anything to do today?", have you got any results ? or it could be some moments of silence.

In times like these that it is best and safe to go towards the Lord and not away.

Temptation could come in various forms with sinning as the result or something to hurt or to divert our relationship with the Lord. But let's be firm, submit ourselves to God, pray sincerely and fervently, and temptation will weaken.

Another thing is to check our heart if it is 100 % for the Lord. According to Apostle Paul in II Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalt itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

Passion for the Lost

Passion for the Lost

Have you experienced losing something, and felt so desperate that you can't rest till you find that something ? I have today, i am about to lose my patience, so I prayed to God , Help ! and I repeated that many times, even Psalm 22 which I tried to match with today's date, expressed what appears to be a desperate call.

God seemed to answer and say, I want you to feel what I feel when seeking lost souls or lost sheeps. I believe God is saying I know where they are but I need my people to find them. But where are my people ?

Yes, where are God's people ? Are you one of God's people ? if yes, , are you looking  for our lost brothers and sisters ?

Let's us not hinder others who are looking for the lost but instead help them.

Renew our life with Jesus daily

Renew our life with Jesus daily

For those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we know we need to renew our life with Jesus daily, i hope you agree ?

For some reason , i rearranged my study room , and I seemed to be missing something, could physical arrangement  of Christian materials affect our orientation with respect to our worship ? Let me find out, or maybe I did something else ?

Perhaps this is personal but i hope i'll see something. Maybe my heart  has shifted, i hope not. Please pray for me.

The true Jesus and the false Jesus

The true Jesus and the false Jesus

Even the Lord Jesus warned while He was in human form that many will come in His name deceiving many.

A true believer believes in the true Jesus but a deceived believer will believe in false Jesus.

The Holy Spirit teaches or leads to the true Jesus while a different/ evil spirit leads to a false Jesus.

Here are some general rules to discern the true Jesus from the false one:

1. Always pray to God for help in discerning.

2. Read Authorized Version of the Bible, and/or other reliable versions.

3. Apply the words of God in our lives.

4.Seek Jesus with all your mind, heart, and soul.

In Jesus name, Amen.

God builds for eternity

God builds for eternity

Let's give glory to God for He builds for eternity. Man has been building for thousands of years but most of what man builds soon breaks down, falls down,  but yet man has been able to build engineering marvels.

I will let your imagination look around and also look back  and think of what you admired before and think ,or visualize where are they now. Do you wish they are still standing now ?

God wants us to enjoy what Jesus is building or preparing now. About 2,000 years  Jesus said to his disciples ." I go to prepare a place for you. In my Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so I could have told you. And if I go to prepare a  place for you, then I'll be back to take you unto myself. That where I am  , there will you be also.
