God’s Forgiveness

 

Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

 

Matthew 6:12, NKJV

Jesus, the Lamb of God, God’s own Son, was sacrificed on the altar of a wooden Roman cross.

Normally, crucifixion victims cursed and screamed obscenities and even passed into unconsciousness from the initial pain. Jesus reacted in a stunningly different way – He prayed, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34, NIV). Fifty days later when Peter preached at Pentecost, Jesus’ prayer was answered when some of the very men who crucified Him repented of their sins, placed their faith in Him, and were baptized in His Name!

If God could forgive the men who nailed His Son to the Cross, why do you think He won’t forgive you?

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Trust God‘s Goodness

He will wipe every tear from their eyes.

Revelation 21:4, NIV

One day God will call us forth from the dead, and we will rise again! Praise God! Praise God! Praise God! All of our suffering will be over, and God Himself “‘will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’ He who was seated on the throne said . . . , ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true'” (Rev. 21:4-5, NIV).

When you don’t understand why, just trust Him!

Trust His heart! Trust His purpose!

Trust His goodness!

Trust His plan to be bigger than yours!

Trust Him because . . . God is enough

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

God Is Working Out His Plan for You

 

 

 

“I make known the end from the beginning.”

Isaiah 46:10 NIV
God Is Working Out His Plan for You
You are not a mistake your parents made in the heat of passion. What your parents did may have been illegitimate, but you are not. You may wonder: “God, is it possible that You have a reason for my conception? Am I called to do something great in life? Is there something so unique to my personality, so connected to my life experiences, so relative to my sphere of influence, so dependent upon my colour and culture, so necessary to my needs and shortcomings that nobody can do it exactly the way You want it done but me?” Yes.
God says, “’I make known the end from the beginning…My purpose will stand.’” You are going to succeed because God has already determined your destiny. Before God establishes the procedure, He decides the purpose. When a builder is confused he refers back to the blueprint and checks with the architect. God is the architect and builder of your life. He never gets confused about what He’s planned or how it’s to be built. When He builds something, it’s built for maximum efficiency and optimal performance. We think, “Lord, why are You holding me back while others get to go forward? Why is it taking so long for my breakthrough to come?” God responds, “What does the blueprint say?” God is building a solid foundation under you so that you’ll be able to handle the pressures that accompany His blessing, and go through the storms of life without being moved or shaken. Anything that’s made well is made slowly. Anything that’s worth having is worth fighting for.

Carrying the Cross

 

 

 

 

 

“Anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.”

Luke 14:27, NIV

Imagine what it would have been like to be Simon, and to have carried the Cross of Christ while following Him up Calvary.

What would it have been like to have shared in the humiliation of rejection as He was cast out of the city?

What would it have been like to have felt the sticky warmth of His blood from the Cross on your skin?

What would it have been like to have felt the encroaching horror as the place of execution neared?

What would it have been like to have looked up through the sweat that trickled down your face, and seen the executioners who stood waiting impassively with hammers in hand?

What would it have been like to have the burden of the Cross

lifted from your back as someone said, “This is His Cross; you’re free to go now,” and He was nailed to it, not you?

Thank You Jesus

 

 

 

 

 

Thank Him Now!

 

 

 

 

 

He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities.

Isaiah 53:5, NIV

Perhaps thinking to satisfy the crowd’s thirst for blood without actually going so far as to execute Jesus, Pilate had Him flogged. The flogging would have ripped the flesh off of His back, exposing His internal organs. History records that flogging victims either passed into unconsciousness, went insane, or died. The miracle is not that Jesus survived the whipping, but that He submitted to it! How easy it would have been for Him to defy them and, without cursing but in righteous judgment, send them all to hell!

Why? Why would God allow His Son to endure such physical torture? The answer had been given years earlier, when Isaiah solemnly prophesied, “Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows. . . . He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed” (Isa. 53:4-5, NIV). Hallelujah!

Thank Him now for bearing God’s judgment that should have been ours!

Blessings

Share Your Faith Now! Somebody needs it!

Share your faith now! Somebody needs it

“Then I will teach transgressors your ways.” (Psalm 51:13 (NIV).

John was hitchhiking home when he was picked up by Mr. Patrick. As they drove towards Lagos from Ibadan, John felt God urging him to share his faith. When he overcame his fear and asked the man if he would like to receive Christ, Mr. Patrick stopped, weeping, he bowed his head and received Christ. “This is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me,” he said

Shortly afterwards he dropped John at his house at Mowe and went on to Lagos, which was about an hour down the road.

Years later, while preparing for a business trip to Lagos, John came across the gold-embossed business card Mr. Patrick had given him years earlier. When he arrived in Lagos he decided to look up De Patricko Enterprises and found it located in a skyscraper in Marina. When he asked the receptionist if he could see Mr. Patrick, she said, “No, but his wife is here.”

You knew my husband?” the woman in her 50’s asked.

John explained that her husband had given him a ride and how he’d led him to Christ.

When was that?” she asked.

May 7th, five years ago, the day I was discharged from the army.”

She began to sob.

After several minutes she regained control and said, “I prayed for my husband’s salvation for years, believing God would save him. But right after he let you out of his car, on May 7th, he was killed in a head-on collision. I thought God had not answered my prayer, and I stopped living for Him five years ago.

That day she recommitted her life to Christ.

Share your faith today! Somebody needs it!

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
