Chosen

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 he’s created you to uniquely serve him.
Ask God, “What kind of God-legacy do you want me to leave?”
Thank God you are among “the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you” (1 Peter 2:9 MSG).

Excruciating Pain

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 Stones

It 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 it was the end of my happy days with food.


These excruciating pains were enough for me to be able to say "No" to eating junk foods and even those which are not junk but are not healthy for me after God has been gracious to heal me and allow me to keep my gall bladder.




But I guess, just like any human being, I easily forget like the Israelites.

I began to try and taste cheese again after a month that I had naturally flushed my gall stones.


Relapse

And now, after more than a year, It's embarrassing to admit that I have fallen back into my old way of eating. I forgot the diet that I had religiously followed right after I felt the pain.

I have missed all the exercises that I had carefully observed and resolved right after I got my eating privileges back to me.

Why do I have to wait, for myself to experience pain before I choose to live a healthy lifestyle?


Why can't I just choose to live a healthy lifestyle even if there are no outright consequences?


Why is it hard for me to say No to temporal pleasures of food, when I could easily say No to these when it is a matter of life and death situation.


Do I actually have to wait when it is too late before I change my ways?


I praise and thank God for always warning me. 

Sadly, it had to take pain before I hear His Gentle voice.

I thank God that I realize through pain, how much He loves me and that He wants me to take care of my body the best way that I can - 
Not mediocre way.

Not being complacent. 

I thank God for making me realize before it is too late.


Kindly pray for me, that, despite my busy and hectic schedule, God will part the Red sea for me so that I could find time to go to the gym, which He has blessed me to be a member of.


I'm genuinely terribly sorry that I had to realize it now.

Kindly pray for my complete and total healing.

Create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10)

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?

Holiness and Faith

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 calls us to obey God, even when it requires deliberate sacrifice, even exposure to danger.

A Balanced Life


A Balanced Life

A 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, and
  • He 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.

Trisha Claudine Sebastian with Beverly Jardine Santos
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?

Many people burn out because of improper personal maintenance.
Take care of your physical self.

Do you make time for your relationship with God?
Do you feel too busy for prayer, Bible study, meditation, or devotions?
"Take time and know that I am God." Psalms 46:10:
Take time to be holy, speak with the Lord . 
Do you make time for primary relationships?
Do you have enough time for your family, and friends?
