Tag: Christ Love

Today I thought about what to write that would inspire and encourage you to keep pressing forward.  The word that resonated in my heart was “Christ lives in you”.  You can go on living a normal life,  day in day out forgetting that Jesus Christ is alive in you and His demonstrating power is at work in you.

To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27

You are the image and likeness of Christ Jesus, Because you are a living being ( not dead being) in Christ Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit that is at work you within you, your actions, reactions and works should display His empowerment and enablement to fulfil His works on earth as it has already been established in Heaven (Acts 17:28, Matthew 6:10)

“A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. 20 At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. 2He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” John 14:19-21

You in Him (Christ), I (Christ ) in you, what a strong  connecting relationship we have.  It does not end there, it extends to our Heavenly Father, I (Christ ) in My Father, means that Jesus Christ had an intimate relationship with our Father in Heaven that thought Him to be obedient to His Word, even on the cross He was still obedient.  He accomplished all that He was called to do on earth and said “It is finished ” (John 19:28-30 ).  Because of His sacrificial love for you and me.

Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father are one, they work in unity.  The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one that bears witness in Heaven (John 10:30, 1 John 5:7).  The Holy Spirit is the guarantee that we have direct access to our Heavenly Father, Holy Spirit is our Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener and  Standby who guides us in the whole truth received from Heavenly Father (John 16:13).  As Christ lives  in you, the Holy Spirit helps you to walk the journey of faith and perseverance through it all.  For you are not meant to do it alone.

Therefore do not work in your own effort but the with help of the Holy Spirit by His grace, walking in obedience to every instruction revealed to you by our Heavenly Father .

MY PRAYER FOR YOU

I pray that you will come to a solid understanding of the heights and depths of the love of Christ.  His glory shall be unveiled in you so that we might understand His abundant grace.  My He continually empower, enable you to walk in complete obedience by His grace fulfilling all that He has called you to do.  May you have a perfect knowledge and understanding of how to walk in the boldness and authority of His power is at work in you because Christ lives in you.  May you walk from strength to strength, glory to glory and faith to ever increasing faith and grace for grace every step of the way.  Amen

When Christ was crucified He paid a costly price for our sake.  He came down to this earth in human form to bear our pains and sufferings.  God’s love for us is beyond our understanding, His love for us is so deep,  as deep as the ocean, so sweet but sweeter than honey.  Because of His love He gave His only begotten Son Jesus Christ the Messiah that we might not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).  A divine exchange took place on the cross of Calvary.  On the cross an exchange took place and all records of accusations against us was wiped out completely for good.   He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.15 In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross Colossians 2:14-15 NLT.  He crushed all principalities and powers right under His feet, rendering them powerless.

An exchange took place at the cross when He was crucified, He bore our pains and sufferings that we might live life in His fullness.  He bore our pains, He was despised and rejected, He was oppressed and afflicted, He was wounded for our transgressions,  bruised for our guilt and iniquities, all these He suffered for our sake (Isaiah 53:3-5)

 

This is my personal conviction of Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour ……..

You took my filth for righteousness
You bore my pains for healing
You were crucified that I might have life eternal
You surrendered Your life for my liberation
You took my shame for honour

You were pierced to immerse me in Your blood
You came in human form to suffer on this sinful earth
You sacrificed Your life for my sake
You first loved me before I knew You

You have given me beauty for ashes
You have given me oil of joy for mourning
You have given me the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness

 

My life has never been the same ever since I knew Him as my Lord and personal  Saviour Jesus Christ.  I experienced a great transformation that impacted my lifestyle, mindset and everything about me for His glory.  Would you like to know Him as your Lord and Saviour?

It is time to take a step of faith and invite Him into your heart.  If so, now is the time to pray a simple prayer of salvation.  I pray that the Lord will strengthen you, guide you as you walk with Him, He will make the crooked path straight and smooth.  In Jesus name, Amen.

I love you

By Ngozi Ngadi

I received a postcard from my Daddy, who reminded me of how much He loves me.  His words were repeated several times  ‘ I love you ‘,  ‘ I love you ‘,  ‘ I love you ‘ until it clicked.   And truly it did, that my Father really loves me, He loved yesterday in my sins, hopelessness, brokenhearted and imperfection, He loves me now  and He always will, regardless.

Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you; therefore I will give men for you, and people for your life Isaiah 43:4.  

 I am His special daughter, He has every detail of my life planned because He  is the master planner (Ephesians 1:11).  He has great plans for me, plans of hope and for me to prosper in all that I do.  His ways are higher than my ways, so are His thoughts higher than my thoughts.

He loves me dearly and because He loves me, my spirit, body and my soul clings to Him for safety.  My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me Psalm 63:8 amp.

As you read this love note from Daddy to me, His beloved daughter I hope that you will discover more of Christ love for you.  Moreover that He will bring you to a deeper level of intimacy with Him, knowing Him for who He is,  He is love, God is love (1 John 4:8).  He will walk with you as a Father walks with the child, supporting the child along the long tiring road.

This is a reflection of His love to me…………………….

heart

How great is Your love for me
So great You shed your blood on the cross
How deep is Your love
So deep deeper than the ocean
How wide is Your love
So wide are Your arms to rest in Your comfort
Who can compare to Your love?
I still stand amazed in precious love

My prayer towards you is that : May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,

    18That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
    19[That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!   Ephesians 3:17-19 amp

Dear Child,
I love you so much from the depths of My heart.  I have your heart and know the intimate matters that bothers you, even the secrets petitions of your heart .  I know the strong desires of your heart because I am Lord Almighty, the lover of your soul.  I am with you always, never will I leave you nor forsake you.

Dont worry about worry about the pressures of this life.  Look I have taken care of it all, only if you could see beyond the situation.  I have made a way where there seemed to be no way.  The crooked path has been made straight. My yoke is easy and My burden is light, take My yoke, rest in Me.  I am taking you to a place of rest, where you do not have to fret about the bits and pieces of life.  Be still and know that I am God.  Be still, be still I said, I am leading you beside the still waters to restore your soul and make you perfectly whole again.

I know I have broken, crushed you into pieces and you have given up on life. You have stopped in the middle of the road wondering which direction to turn. Life seems so meaningless to you, you have been hurt, disappointed by people you have trusted and loved.  My precious child, I am the Potter, you are the clay, I will mold you back the way I want you to be, during this process the clutters, dirty pieces and junks will be taken off.  I am the way, the truth and life, follow Me and I will show you the way.  Trust Me lean not on your on own understanding and in all your ways acknowledge Me, I will direct your path.

Your Daddy
