Only God Can SAVE You From The Judgement to come.

Good works or following religious rules and regulations can't save us from our sins. We can only be saved by God alone.

Daily Spirit & Word: 796: Being Saved Is Possible, but ONLY by God’s Grace and Mercy.

Only God Can SAVE You.

From the Judgement to Come.

Being SAVED Is Possible, But Only By God.

Can A Camel Go Through The Eye of a Needle?

Good morning my friends, today we’re back with the Gospel of Mark. In our gatherings in church, we’ve been going through Mark for almost a year now. The Journey has been amazing. We’re discovering what an amazing LORD Jesus really is, and how inspired Mark (the author) must have been by Holy Spirit. I don’t think it’s possible that a man could put this work together, without the help of God. For we’ve been experiencing progressive revelation and this portion of God’s Word has built for us a wonderful picture of Jesus nature and character, but in doing so He’s also opened up what true Discipleship is like, from each and every story, parable and incident He recorded.

What we’ve observed:

  • Jesus is more Godlike that we at first would imagine.
  • The Disciples are more human and unable to save themselves from the consequences of sin.
  • Jesus (God) needs less human and earthly resources to sustain His life.
  • The Disciples, followers of Jesus, need more and more Divine intervention and revelation.

What I’ve discovered afresh, as if I didn’t know, is that we all need to stay very close to Jesus, every day, just to keep going as His followers. Yes we have advantages over His own disciples; we have the Holy Spirit’s indwelling, the Word of God in full; so we know how to serve and we have Jesus’ promises to be with us always for the journey. However, we must be willing to maintain that connection with God.

Today we’re back with Mark 10:23-31. Being SAVED Is Possible, But Only By An Act Of God.

  • Can a Camel Go Through The Eye of a Needle?
  • Can a Man Be SAVED by Good Works?

 

Mark 10:23-31 (NIV)
23  Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!”
24  The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!
25  It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
26  The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?”
27  Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
28  Peter said to him, “We have left everything to follow you!”
29  “I tell you the truth,” Jesus replied, “no-one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel
30  will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life.
31  But many who are first will be last, and the last first.”
Last week Robert preached, whilst I was away in Plymouth, about the Rich Young Ruler and how he thought he’d fulfilled and lived according to the requirements of the Old Testament Law (Summarised in the Ten Commandments)… When he said to Jesus, “All these I have kept since I was a boy” Jesus didn’t react by saying what He knew, “No, my friend you have not lived according to God’s Commandments”… Instead, Jesus looked at him and, as the Bible tells us, “He loved him”…

 

I wonder if Jesus look of love was one of pity; because the Rich Young Man was BLIND (He couldn’t see his Spiritual need and didn’t understand how much he was in need of God’s forgiveness). I do not think that WEALTH was his only problem. In fact I’ll go as far a declaring I KNOW it wasn’t. Because, when we look at the Ten Commandments properly and honestly we’ll soon see we’ve all FALLEN SHORT of every single one of them: None of us can say in front of God: “I’ve kept all of these since I was a child”…

 

However, Jesus did focus upon his WEALTH.

Jesus knows what a TRAP WEALTH IS for most people in this world.

It was back then and it is today.

That’s why He said, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God”.

 

The Disciples Knew It Too: “If A Camel CAN’T, Then We CAN’T either”

They knew that EVERYONE wanted to be RICH: Like the Rich Young Ruler…

 

Today, many people, all over the world, are clamouring for WEALTH, Health and Happiness:

People are risking life and limb in the Mediterranean Sea to get to Europe, the Land of PROMISE.

They know, people in the West are Prosperous, Wealthy and Healthy: So, willing to risking everything in flimsy boats, that’s what they want for themselves. They launch themselves into the Mediterranean Ocean from all over Africa in their thousands ever month. Many of those boats are without even an engine, cram-packed with people; men, women and babies. How foolish to go to sea like that, without an engine in a flimsy rubber boat. That’s how desperate people in this world are for Wealth, Health and Happiness.

 

When they arrive, they head for the most prosperous, populous areas; Germany and the UK.

 

Oh my friends, if only they could see; Health, Wealth and Happiness can’t SAVE you; Only Jesus Christ can give you lasting peace and happiness upon this earth and the life to come.

 

THE IMPOSSIBILITY:

The Disciples KNEW it’s IMPOSSIBLE then, for ANYONE to enter the Kingdom of God.

So they asked that pertinent question; “Who Then Can Be SAVED?”

 

JESUS ANSWER: It’s Impossible for man to save himself: Therefore ONLY God can save.

The Disciples asked in Mark 10:26 and Jesus answered in Mark 10:27.
26  The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?”
27  Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
It’s IMPOSSIBLE: For anyone to SAVE themselves by human effort, by your own goodness or by your own righteousness.

The Rich Young Man: Good in his own eyes; couldn’t.

The Rest of Humanity: Good in their own eyes; can’t either.

However, Jesus revealed the IMPOSSIBILITY:

A Camel can’t ever FIT through the eye of a needle.

A Human being can’t ever FIT in the Kingdom of God.

 

NOTICE: The DISCIPLES: Were EVEN MORE AMAZED… i.e. They were amazed the Rich Young Man couldn’t be SAVED. Now they were EVEN MORE AMAZED, because they knew “NO ONE” could be saved. Unless God did something.

 

That “MORE AMAZED”: Reveals to me something about the Disciples.

Perhaps they we secretly thinking they were good enough themselves. After all they’d been with Jesus (they’d left EVERYTHING to follow Him).

Perhaps they’re just beginning to get Jesus message, that EVERYONE needs God’s intervention; if they ever hope to enter the Kingdom of God.

“Not with God, ALL THINGS are POSSIBLE with God”.

 

It’s POSSIBLE: But ONLY with God.

A Camel Can’t go through the eye of a needle (Impossible).

A Man Can’t enter the Kingdom of God (Impossible).

 

Unless, God does something. (Mark has been revealing that Jesus is God, because only God can do the things Jesus did).

  • Only God could make a Camel fit through the eye of a needle.
  • Only God could turn water into wine.
  • Only God could walk on water.
  • Only God could calm a storm with a word.
  • Only God could command Demons.
  • Only God could open the eyes of a man born blind.
  • Only God could bring a dead girl back to life.
  • Only God could make you FIT Enough to enter into Heaven.

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD.

ONLY GOD CAN SAVE YOU; YOU CAN’T SAVE YOURSELF.

Peter Reveals: (Why he was even more amazed) “We’ve left everything to follow You”… i.e. surely we’ll be saved by our human effort… “Look at the sacrifice we’ve made Jesus”… “Surely you can see how serious we are in following you”… My friends, no matter how hard you try, you’ll NEVER be good enough for Heaven. No matter what EFFORT you put into it yourself. You’ve got to STOP trying to SAVE yourself and let Jesus SAVE you. Why? Because no amount of effort to be good will wash away your sins that contaminate your soul.

Jesus answer, “No, Peter, because by leaving everything, you’ve gained much more”..

Mark 10:28-30.
28  Peter said to him, “We have left everything to follow you!”
29  “I tell you the truth,” Jesus replied, “no-one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30  will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age (homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—and with them, persecutions) and in the age to come, eternal life.

If we let go of EVERYTHING: Then it’s possible to be SAVED: But only by God.

The great temptation is that most people think they can do enough good works to earn a place in Heaven. That’s why the Disciples asked Jesus that question, “Who then can be saved?”. Deep down inside all of us, is this desire to work for or earn Salvation for ourselves. It’s hard to let go and let God do the saving, but that’s exactly what we’ve got to do or we CAN’T be SAVED.

  • Let go of Human Effort to be GOOD enough for Heaven.
  • Let Jesus come into your life and take away all your SINS.
  • Then His blood will cleanse you and make you FIT for Heaven.
  • It’s impossible with MEN: But it’s POSSIBLE with God.

How is it POSSIBLE?

Next Week: We’re going to be looking at “Why Jesus Came To Die?” Mark 10.

He came into this world to SAVE SINNERS.

Everyone has sinned, The Disciples knew, so they asked “Who then can be saved?”

My friends, you don’t want to wait until next week:

God’s Word tells us, “Today is the DAY of SALVATION”.

i.e. Get right with God today.

A) Confess your sins to God: How, like the Rich Young Ruler, you’ve not kept the Ten Commandments. You’ve lied, you’ve stolen, you’ve not put God first in all things, all the time. You’ve dishonoured you mum and dad. You’ve lusted and been unfaithful sometimes. You’ve coveted what your neighbour has. We’ve all done it. Everyone has broken God’s Commandments: Confess how you’ve done it to God.

B) Believe Jesus died on the Cross for all your sins:

His death was in your place. He died so that you can receive Heaven, once you Repent, Believe and Receive Him as Lord and Saviour.

C) Repent: Turn away from living a life of sin a rebellion and turn around and come to Jesus Christ to be cleansed and forgiven and renewed by Holy Spirit.

D) Receive: Receive Jesus Christ by an act of faith.

Just like you would board a plane to go on holiday. You trust the Captain knows how to get you to your destination. You RECEIVE Jesus as your Captain, He’ll take you all the way to Heaven.

More than that; you’ll receive the Holy Spirit Birth. New Life and Abundant LIFE right now.

E) Live: Become a Disciple of Jesus and live according to His teaching in fellowship with other followers. (Your Christian brothers and sisters in God’s family).

In order to do that, to live this Christian life, you’ll need: To gather regularly in worship, fellowship and receive Discipleship training from God’s Word. You’ll need to sort out your TIME and make time for daily prayer to connect with Jesus every day. You’ll need TIME: to Study and begin to practice God’s Word; daily.

You’ll get God’s HEART for others, that they might know Him too. You’ll be overflowing with a burning desire to lead others to Jesus Christ.

All of these things are indicators that you’ve really and truly been SAVED by Jesus.

You’ll also notice the Fruit of the Holy Spirit begining to ripen in your life: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control.

NOTE: Passages by Way of Illustrating of these points in today’s message.

Titus 3:4-7 (NIV)
4  But when the kindness and love of God our Saviour appeared, 5  he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6  whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Saviour, 7  so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.

Titus 3 shows us;

  • We can’t be saved by ‘the good things we have done’… i.e. no amount of human effort will suffice.
  • That God in His mercy saves us by REGENERATION (RENEWAL) NEW LIFE, NEW BIRTH by The Holy Spirit.
  • We are JUSTIFIED (Made right with God: Justified = Just as if I’d never sinned). How? By God’s Grace and Kindness.
  • What happens? We become heirs (inheritors) of Eternal Life (Through this faith and trust in Jesus, we can enter into the Kingdom of Heaven).

Romans 5:6-8 (NIV) We’re POWERLESS: i.e. we don’t possess the strength or ability to SAVE ourselves.
6  You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
7  Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.
8  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Jesus died on the Cross for us, so that we can be forgiven, cleansed, set free from sin’s power, so that we can be made fit for God’s Kingdom of Heaven.

Ephesians 2:1-5 (NIV) Before We Put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ, we are DEAD in our Transgressions and Sins.
1  As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,
2  in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air (Satan), the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient (Those who break God’s Commandments; all people).
3  All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath.
4  But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5  made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

Conclusion:

We’ve seen today that the Disciples discovered the impossibility of anyone being able to SAVE themselves by human effort to get into God’s Kingdom of Heaven.

We can’t SAVE ourselves, it’s impossible for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle. It’s impossible for a human being to be cleansed from sin by doing good or being religious or following the Ten Commandments.

So, it is only through God’s kindness, mercy and Grace that anyone can ever be SAVED from God’s wrath and anger against sin.

If we were to die without coming to Jesus Christ, then we would carry our sins to the Judgement. If we come to Jesus, we’ll be set free from sin, forgiven and cleansed. We’ll be born of the Spirit and receive NEW LIFE in Christ Jesus. When God sees us coming, He’ll throw open the gates of Heaven and welcome us in. Why? Not because of the good we’ve done, but because of His Son; Lord Jesus, who washed our sins away.

My friends, God has demonstrated just how much He loves everyone by sending Jesus to die for us. He doesn’t want anyone to end up in Hell or be judged because of their sins. He’s giving us all this moment in time to reflect, to repent, to return to Him. Do it right now! Don’t waste another moment of time. Get right with God today: Confess, Repent, Believe, Receive and Live. Amen!

Let us PRAY:

Have and awesome week with the LORD.

Trust Him every day and come close to Him in praise, worship, adoration. Then go out and share the Good News so that many more can come to Know HIM.

He’s alive! He wants to give your family, friends, workmates, school friends, college comrades and neighbours that NEW LIFE too.

Be blessed,

Don.

 

Sharing IS Caring

You can't let your little light hide for long

Daily Spirit & Word: 690: Sharing IS Caring.

Let Your Radiant Face Shine.

At pre-school they try to get the two, three and four year old kids to share things: bikes, toys, prams, dolls, etc… It doesn’t come naturally to most infants, they want things for themselves. However, if we can get the message through at a very young age, then perhaps we’ll influence a whole generation into Kind-Heartedness right?

Well, I’ve observed it in our own grandchildren and their friends. They do understand the principle, “Sharing Is Caring”. They’ll say up until they are about four or five, “Sharing’s Caring”, but as soon as they begin to experience ownership of something valuable for themselves, things that THEY actually care about, love, like etc… Then you try getting them to SHARE… They don’t like it, but even when they do share, they’ll watch their precious treasure like a hawk. Like a Lioness her cubs. No my friends, SHARING doesn’t come naturally to human beings, we’re selfish by nature. We want to keep our precious stuff for ourselves and our family to enjoy, am I right?

It takes MATURITY and AGE to see that we really should care about the plight of others. Yes there are some who care from a very young age, we’re all different. However, the vast majority only care about NO 1… In our late teens or early 20s something happens within us, we begin to FEEL for others. When we’ve been through some tough stuff, we can sympathise and empathise with others.

This PARABLE of Jesus in Mark’s Gospel today follows on from Jesus’ teaching in the Parable of the Sower. You do need to keep BOTH Parables / Jesus’ Teaching in mind. What did Jesus want us to discover in the Parable of the Sower?

That the CROP we produce reveals if we are Good Soil Hearers. He wants us to be FRUITFUL (Vine and Branches John 15.)

Here in this Parable, we can also see if we are good soil hearers… crop producers / fruitful.

Mark 4:21-25 (NIV)
21 He said to them, “Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand?
22  For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open.
23  If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.”
24  “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more.
25  Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.”

VERSE 21: Hiding Your Light. 

Imagine for a moment, you are living in a place that has NO LIGHT. Like Alaska for a few months of the year, it’s in TOTAL DARKNESS. One Day: You are given a light, no one else has a light, but instead of letting everybody else see the light, you decide to hide it. What is the condition of the other people? Answer: They are still in complete darkness.

YOU ARE THE LIGHT: 

That’s what Jesus told EVERYONE who puts their faith and trust in Him. You are the Light of the world.

Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)
14  “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
15  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
16  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

How Do We Hide The Light?

Have you ever been in company and had the thought come to your mind, “I can tell them about Jesus now”, but thought to yourself, “No, I can’t, it’s not the right time, they won’t like it, it will spoil the evening”… It might just have been the LORD prompting you to share.

VERSE 22: Hidden / Concealed: Disclosed / Brought out into the open.

You can’t HIDE the Light: God will make sure of that (If your are a TRULY BORN AGAIN Christian).

I had an experience of that when I joined a brand new Submarine as a Petty Officer. I was given charge of a small electrical maintenance section. I didn’t want to start Evangelising immediately or let others know of my Christian faith. I thought, I’ll let them see I’m good at my job, a great Artificer, then once I’ve got their respect, I’ll let them know I follow Jesus.

After just two days a young man said, “There’s something weird about you” I said, “What do you mean?” “He said I don’t know, but there is” Then the next day he said, “I know what it is”. “What do you know?” I asked. “You don’t swear” He said, “Why don’t you swear, it’s weird” Well I had to tell him the reason, “It’s because I’m a Christian Sean, I can’t swear or steal or tell lies because I’m following Jesus as my Lord”…… My friends, you cannot HIDE your light for long as a Christian, there are certain ways, if you are living in the world, that they will sus-you-out. If you are really following Jesus, the LIGHT will shine out from you and give light to the world. Like me, you can TRY to hide it, but It will NOT remain hidden for long. (that’s because it’s meant to be DISCLOSED, IT’S MEANT TO BE BROUGHT INTO THE OPEN).

I fully intended to let everyone know that I was a follower of Jesus, but in my own good time. However, God had different plans. He wanted people to know from the first moment that I set foot on that Submarine that I was His man, that I was a Christian and that Christians are different. It was only after about 18 Months that I discovered why. That young man, Sean Frow from Hull in Yorkshire, later gave his life to Jesus Christ whilst at sea, submerged 200 meters under the waves. He’d been watching my life, listening to my words, hearing me tell others about Jesus and I’d shared the Gospel with him too. He came to Jesus Christ.

ALWAYS A CHRISTIAN: (Light Always On).

You may be in your place of work or neighbourhood: Do the people you work with KNOW about your faith in Jesus?

I’ve known some people who try and compartmentalise their FAITH in Jesus. “At work I’m a nurse, doctor, administrator, telephonist, secretary, builder, plumber, etc… At home I’m a Christian.”

My friends, let’s be real and true to Jesus Christ. At Work or At Home: You are ALWAYS A CHRISTIAN. Your light is NEVER to be switched off.

Think of the Christian life like this: As soon as you open your eyes in the morning, Jesus light is shining out of them.

Your FACE should shine with Holy Light.

How Can We Make Our Light Shine Brighter?

Moses Face: (Read Exodus 34:29-35)

Exodus 34:29-35 (ANIV)
29  When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the LORD.
30  When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, his face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him.
31  But Moses called to them; so Aaron and all the leaders of the community came back to him, and he spoke to them.
32  Afterwards all the Israelites came near him, and he gave them all the commands the LORD had given him on Mount Sinai.
33  When Moses finished speaking to them, he put a veil over his face.
34  But whenever he entered the LORD’S presence to speak with him, he removed the veil until he came out. And when he came out and told the Israelites what he had been commanded,
35  they saw that his face was radiant. Then Moses would put the veil back over his face until he went in to speak with the LORD.
Whenever Moses was in the presence of the Lord, whenever he’d spent time with God, his face was radiant.

The people were terrified by it, they asked Moses to put a veil over his face, because it shone so much.

Ok, we know all about Moses: (Google: Radiant Faces In The Bible) But did you know there are 14 more examples of RADIANT FACES in God’s Word. Each one happens because a person is spending time seeking the Lord, being in God’s presence.

Here’s one example from Psalm 34:5 Radiant FACES. (There are at least 14 others).

Psalm 34:3-14 (NIV)
3  Glorify the LORD with me: let us exalt his name together.
4  I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
5  Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
6  This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.
7  The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
8  Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
9  Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.
10  The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
11  Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12  Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,
13  keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
14  Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.

My friends, here’s how you to can get the Glory Glow (Radiant FACE): By spending TIME with Jesus every day. In the morning, when you get up, go and get your Bible, Pray to Jesus, Ask Him to speak to you through His Word, let the Word soak into your being. Ask Jesus to fill you with Holy Spirit… My friends, when you spend time with Jesus, your light is going to shine. Your FACE WILL BE RADIANT.

a) It takes a DECISION:

Although God will make your light shine, sometimes against your will, like me. Most times He wants you to LET IT SHINE.

You know the little song? “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine, this little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine”… It’s a choice and a decision every day.

Jesus said, “Take up your cross daily and follow me”… We’re to follow Jesus when? On a Sunday? No! On a Wednesday or Thursday? NO! We are to follow Jesus EVERY DAY….

b) Paul said to Philemon. 

Philemon 1:4-7 (NIV) “I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, 5  because I hear about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints. 6  I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. 7  Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints.”

First Paul commends Philemon for his sincere love for the Saints (His fellow brothers and sisters in Christ). Then he encourages him to “SHARE HIS FAITH” Why does Paul encourage Philemon to share his faith? Because “FAITH SHARING” is much harder than being loving to the saints.

However, there’s more, listen carefully my friends, “I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, SO THAT (That “So That” in this section is there for a very good reason). SO THAT “You will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ”… WOWzer!

So by just sharing our faith, by letting our light shine, we don’t only bring others out of darkness, we too have an increase in our awareness, knowledge and experience of “EVERY GOOD THING WE HAVE IN CHRIST”… That’s totally AWESOME.

Use it or Lose It:

My friends, we can see this truth in the light of Jesus teaching in Mark’s Gospel today.

23  If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.”
24  “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more.
25  Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.”

Sharing is Caring: Use it or loose it. 

It’s a very sad state to be in, to be a Christian, but to have such a dim-light-for-Jesus. “Even what he has will be taken from him”… My friends, if we don’t SHARE Jesus with folks, then our light is going to get dimmer and dimmer and dimmer until we’re as good as in the Darkness again.

Share it and it grows brighter. Let your light shine and you’re light will grow even brighter.

Your light in Christ is not like a TORCH. When you shine a torch-light after a while the battery runs down.

What Jesus is telling us here is this: It’s a KINGDOM secret: The more you let your light shine, the BRIGHTER it will become.

You will have a full GLORY GLOW, like Moses, the more you do the will of Jesus and let your light shine. (It’s like living with FULL-BEAM HEADLIGHT ON)…

How do we do it?:

How can we let our light shine for Jesus?

By being good, by doing good, by sharing our faith in Jesus. We’re going to GLOW BRIGHTER.

Of course there’s only one way we can be good or do good: And that’s by staying CONNECTED with Jesus Christ. We can try to do all sorts of ‘good things’ but if we’re not connected with Jesus, the VINE (John 15), then we’re as good a dead.

  • You are going to get a RADIANT FACE when you spend time in Jesus company.
  • You are going to get a DEEPER KNOWLEDGE AND EXPEREINCE of all the good things you have in Christ, when you don’t just do good, but share your faith as well.

My friends, “Sharing IS Caring”: Sharing the light of Jesus Christ shows that you do care about those who are living in the DARKNESS, let your light shine. You’ve been given a wonderful TREASURE in the Gospel Seed that’s been planted in your heart by Jesus. Now, you have a choice, will you let your light shine?

Here’s how to measure: Tea Cup or Barrel: Which one holds the most water? How many cups are in a barrel? With the measure you use, it will be measured unto you. Kingdom Secret: Share your faith as much as you can, your understanding will grow of all the good things you have in Christ, Share your faith as much as your can, your light will GLOW EVEN BRIGHTER.

Have and awesome week with Jesus.

Don.

P.S. I just wanted to say a quick thank you for all your prayers and thoughts for my daughter Stephanie. She is in hospital now, ready to give birth, but they are keeping her in until the baby comes.
