 Acts17:28

3     Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

4     According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

5     Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

6     To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

7     In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

8     Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;

 Eph1:8

27            To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory Col1:27

29            And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Gal3:29

 2Pet1:2-4

12   He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

 1John5:11-12

20   I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Gal2:20

4     But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

5     Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)

6     And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

 Eph2:4-6

30   But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

18            And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

21   For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

2Cor5:17-18,21

How Loving and Caring (by Fenny West)

How Loving, How Caring! 

“I heard Him say, “Go there and speak” 
But I ran away, boarded a ship
Like the Titanic, I was bold.
I was wise in my way, in my eyes. 
Unbeknown to me, I leaked and was weak. 
I had betrayed myself, my soul sold. 

And down I went, drowning 
to a point of no return. 
Then I remembered my fault 
And cried out to Him. 
In the depths I raised a hymn of praise, 
I worshipped my Maker for His mercy, 
His wisdom, power, sovereignty. 
Like Paul and Silas, I was not silenced, 
Even in the rain, pain and grave. 

He was moved, quickly forgave
Commanded an earthquake 
To wash me ashore. 
And there I was, 
Even with a pillow 
Under my head. 
How loving, how caring!

Made to Last ( by Fenny West)

Made to Last

Autumn Floral Heart — Image by © Royalty-Free/Corbis

Whether you leave or cleave 
All the choice is yours
Let not the foe deceive 
Today, I counsel you

We were made for one another
And made to last
Let none put asunder 
What He made to last 

Why do you want to play 
a fast one only to lose? 
Love endures long 
when it is strong;

It Pays back good 
for all that is wrong
And this is the God-kind of love. 

to make our song

So my love think again
Think again in spite of the rain
What you see is passing away
It’s transient, not come to stay. 

The true meaning of love is to give and take
for better or worse, none to forsake
We’re glued and none can pull apart
So put the past behind for a New start 

Yes, we can…

 

Hear What the Spirit says

No Greater Love

13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. John15:13

https://youtu.be/aNwATxgGhuY

 

“My sermon is entitled: No Greater love.”

 

“What did I say Church?”

 

No Greater Love.

As I look at the great examples of love stories throughout the ages, there is a list of notable references:

  1. Romeo and Juliet,

  2. Cleopatra and Mark Anthony,

  3. Napoleon and Josephine

The list goes on and on…. But it’s so shocking that there is no mention of the one story that I know, which is the greatest love story where the Father gave His only Son to die an agonizing cruel death- to save you and you and you and even me.

What a love that is! Nothing else can even come close. Because I have lots of love in my heart for Jesus, because of the love I have for you, I appeal to you today that we focus on the love He has for you because of the great sacrifice. And in turn we should love one another with a new love, with a true love.

Let us look at what the Father did for us and think of self, less; and think of others more.  Let us love and let our love be a genuine love.

We have been told time and time again that life is too short, too short! because Jesus will soon come. Can I get an Amen?

Amen!

And He is coming for a Church that can demonstrate attribute of Christ Character. No time for so called fake love.

I believe in 1Corinthians which says: 4 Charity ( love) suffereth long, and is kind; charity (love) envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.8 Charity ( love) never fails!

If it is your desire that the transforming love of Jesus begin its work in your heart today, please stand up and I will call pastor Manning to pray with you.

 

This is the Spirit Speaking. Divinity in humanity. What a sermon from a child genius!

Out of the mouth of a babe the Spirit speaketh. Let Him that has an ear hear what He is saying.

 

 

You Are Valuable To God ( By Fenny West)

You Are Valuable To God

You are valuable to God
And created in His image.
Pay attention to His Word
And you’ll see your destiny.

He paid a great price for you
Because you are valuable.
He emptied Himself for you
Because you are valuable.
He became a ransom for you
Because you are valuable.
Yes, the sinless became sin
Because you are valuable.
He took your shame and curse
Because you are valuable.
The Son of Man, Son of God went to hell,
He abandoned His seat in glory,
Abandoned His majesty,
All because you are valuable.
He was separated from the Father
came down to earth
Because you are valuable.
He died the death on the cross
Because you are valuable.

He took you from the ‘guttermost’ to the uppermost
Because you are valuable.
He cleansed you from your sin
Because you are valuable.
He broke the jail door to set you free
Because you are valuable.
He would leave the ninety-nine and go for the one missing sheep-you
Because you are valuable.
He made you an heir of God and joint heir with Christ 
Because you are valuable to Him.

You were bought with a great price.
So what should your response be?
What would your response be?

Give Him your all, 
Give Him your heart.
He raised you from the fall.
He gave you a New start
He gave you a head start.
He gave you His divine nature.
He made you a New Creature,
gave you the free gift of life-salvation.

Now make the most of it.
Now maximise your potential.

You are valuable to God
He created you for good works He foreordained.
He made you a co-worker with Him.
He made you an apple of His eyes.
He made you a priest and a king.
He made you a light of the world just as He was and is the light of the world.
He made you a saviour even as He is the Saviour of the world.
So go and shed your light.
Go and make an impact.
Go as His hands and feet.
Go as His voice.
Go as His representative.
Go as His ambassador.
Go to your Jerusalem.
Go to your Judea.
Go to your Samaria
And then to the uttermost of the earth.
Go to the highways and byways.
Leave no stone unturned.
Go like the woman at the well.
Go like the mad man of Gadara who became an evangelist to ten cities-Decapolis.
Go like the Ethiopian Eunuch who went back with the Good News and spread it to Africa.
Go like the four lepers who went to tell others about the bread they received.
Go like Peter to the house of Cornelius and there was a household salvation.
Go like Joseph and fulfil your destiny.
Go like the three Hebrew exiles in Babylon, who honoured God and lived by faith even when their lives were on the line and changed the decree of the king and brought glory to God.
Go like Daniel, who distinguished himself in a foreign land and was used mightily and glorified His Maker and was entrusted with the end-time prophecy and was instrumental to the fulfilment of a prophecy in abeyance.
Go like Peter on the Day of Pentecost who preached so fiery and passionately that about 3000 were

Saved.
You are valuable to God especially in these end-times. You are God’s finest wine in the last time.
So stand up and be counted. 
Arise and take your rightful place. Arise, shine!  It’s your time. It’s your season.
Yield a great dividend for your God. Eye has not seen. Ear has not heard, neither has the mind comprehended what God has in store for you.
Yield to the Holy Spirit and He will do exceeding abundantly, far above what you can ask or think or even imagine, according to the power at work in you.

You are valuable to God.
There is more to you than meets the eye. See yourself as God sees you. Do not demean what He has esteemed. You are unique and a masterpiece.

You are valuable to God!

God is Goodness Personified (by Fenny West)

 

God is Goodness Personified

God is Goodness Personified;
Perfect in all His ways;
Gave His best-Jesus-to us all.
His love knows no bounds.
His grace is sufficient for us.
He is able to do exceeding abundantly-far above our wildest dreams.
He can be trusted to keep against that day that committed into His loving and powerful Arms.
He is the Lord-the Lord God; merciful and gracious, extra-ordinarily patient and abundant in goodness and in truth.
When Moses was burdened by the enormity of the vision of taking the children into the Promised Land, he pleaded for the presence of God to go with him, praying, “Show me your glory!”

18 And He said , “Please , show me Your glory.”

19 Then He said , “I will make all My goodness pass before you , and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” Ex.33:18-19

 

Later God declared Who He was:
6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed , “The Lord , the Lord God , merciful and gracious , longsuffering , and abounding in goodness and truth , …”
So if you are in dire straits or burdened by a vision that God has given you, meditate on Who has called you-“The Lord, the Lord God.” His grace is sufficient for you. In your weakness, His strength will be made perfect.  
If you have failed Him in any way, remember He is merciful and gracious, extra-ordinarily patient and abundant in goodness and in truth.

Jesus was God personified. Little wonder why He went about doing good, healing all those oppressed by the devil.

38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.Act10:38

It is God who gives good gifts.

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Jam1:17

 

 He made us in His own image. He has given us good gifts. So let us explore and discover the good gifts of God in us and begin to imitate Him and also go about doing good like our Father in heaven.
