Chosen

Image
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. - 1 Peter 2:9.
Created for ministry (Ephesians 2:10)Saved for ministry (2 Timothy 1:9)Called into ministry (1 Peter 2:9-10)Gifted for ministry (1 Peter 4:10)Authorized for ministry (Matthew 28:18-20)Commanded to minister (Matthew 20:26-28)Prepared for ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12)Needed for ministry (1 Corinthians 12:27)Accountable for and rewarded according to his or her ministry (Colossians 3:23-24)
God shaped you for ministry.  The God of the universe shaped you uniquely to make a contribution in this world and the world to come.
God will support you in ministry.  There is no way you can fail in your mission unless you fail to accept the calling of ministry that comes with being a Jesus-one.

God will answer your questions.  Ask God how he wants you to contribute.
Ask Him how he wants to use the way…

Excruciating Pain

Image
Excruciating Pain Walk with me and work with me — watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly. (Matthew 11:29.) Today, I remember why I had been extraordinarily watchful of my diet and why I had been exceptionally active in my exercise.

It was because I suffered an awful excruciating pain where I had to stop eating...
For three months... literally!

I remember the times when I smell the sweet smell of food, but I wasn't allowed to eat anything because it would trigger pain in my body.
Gall StonesIt was because I had gall stones. These gall stones were formed by my gall bladder, due to food that I enjoyed for a moment of pleasure.

I enjoyed fatty foods, and all unnecessary junk foods, thinking they would not bring me any harm since they are not considered poison...Until the day my stomach ache intensely.

I was brought to the hospital, and in it, I found out that…

Happy Birthday Teacher Bujo

Happy Birthday to one of my Mentors in Nxtgen.

Thank you for the food and the accidental quality time! :D

Follow me

Dear brothers and sisters, pattern your lives after mine, and learn from those who follow our example. Philippians 3:17
Paul challenged the Philippians to pursue Christ-likeness by following his example.

He did not mean that they should copy everything he did, since he had just stated that he was not perfect. But he means that they should follow him as he focuses his life on being like Christ.

Paul could not tell them to read the Bible to see what Christ was like, since the Gospels might not yet be in circulation at that time. So he urged them to imitate him.

Paul's confidence to tell people to follow his example is a testimony to his character. Can you do the same?
What kind of follower would a new Christian become if he or she imitated you?

Holiness and Faith

Image
Holiness and Faith In the pursuit of holiness, there would be times that we will be called to perform duties that appear unreasonable and absurd in an unbelieving world.
Obedience is the pathway to holiness. A holy life is essential in an obedient life.
No one  can become holy without faith.

Faith is not only necessary to salvation, but also to live a life that is pleasing to God.Faith enables us to claim the promises of God.
Faith enables us to obey the commands of God.
Faith enables us to obey when Obedience is costly.Faith enables us to obey when Obedience seem unreasonable to the natural mind.

Obedience to the revealed will of God is often just as much a step of faith as claiming a promise of God.
Holiness is obedience to the will of God in whatever God directs. Here I am I have come to do your will God- Hebrews 10:7
No one who is not prepared to obey God in every area of his life can pursue holiness.
Holiness calls us to obey God, even when that obedience is costly.
Holiness call…

A Balanced Life

Image
A Balanced LifeA balanced life is characterized by order, peace, and wholeness.
The life of Jesus is an excellent model concerning balance.He never hurried.He never had to play catch up, andHe was never taken by surprise.Jesus managed His time well.

Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people. (Luke 2:52)

Each part of our life should get the right amount of time and effort at the right time.

This is not giving each part of our life the same amount of time, but giving each part the necessary allotment of time, that makes life balanced.

Throughout his life, Jesus was under constant pressure. Friend and enemy alike pursued him, but Jesus brought time under control. He is well rounded. He grew intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially.

Does your life reflect a balance?
Do you make time for intellectual growth?

If you are too busy to read a book or engage in a study that stimulates the mind, you are too busy.

Do you make time for your physical health?
