Working For Jesus (Colossians 3:23-24)

Graceway Christian Ministries International

Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.

Colossians 3:23-24 (NLT)

We are called to do everything unto the Lord. Rather than seeing ourselves as working for people, let us understand that we are working for Jesus. He is the one who has placed us in our current position, whether it be a job or a business. And so let us perform our every task with excellence, knowing that our reward will ultimately come from Him. When we show up every day with this spirit of excellence, no matter where we may currently find ourselves, we may rest assured that we will be blessed and that God will use us to be a blessing to others.

The promised land

Precious Sheep Of Renown

For some the promised land was the exodus of the Israelites taken out of the bondage of egypt,but the promised land given to the people of God far extends over many generations til the return of Christ!

The promised land is for all of us who do the will of God by keeping the covenant He has made with His people.To keep His commandments and by being obedient in following His righteous ways.

When we stand on the many promises of God,it is then that we too live in the promised land given us by a faithful creator!

Hebrews chapter 11 is a wonderful read of those who have gone before us and by faith stayed the course being assured that after living a life of blessings from the hand of God will one day enter eternal life through our salvation the Lord Jesus Christ!(Hebrews 6:7-12). For the earth…

The Most Powerful Weapon in Heaven and on Earth

Faith and Footsteps

“The pen is mightier than the sword.”

I’m sure we’ve all heard of this adage and probably know its intended meaning.  While there is obvious strength and great power in weapons that kill or cause violence, the written word has always been more effective at swaying the hearts of men.

There’s no better example of this than God’s word itself, written down for our instruction and encouragement in the pages of the Bible.  It’s no wonder that the word of God has not only stood the test of time, but is the most widely recognized piece of literature the world has ever known.  God’s word is the most powerful thing in the universe and gives us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3), and it’s the understanding and belief of the Bible’s main message (Jesus Christ) that gives us our salvation.

One has to look…

Recognize The Supreme Greatness Of Jesus

Ramblings from Real Man's Land

He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.” John 3:31 (NKJV)

John tells us that Jesus is from above. This is a way of saying that Jesus came from Heaven to earth. Jesus was not merely called from Heaven, or empowered by Heaven but He literally came from Heaven. Later Jesus will tell the people that He came down from Heaven not to do His own will but to do the will of the Father (John 6:38-42). This statement will offend the people because they will recognize it as Jesus claiming to be equal with God.

That is a part of the point John is making here. John recognizes that Jesus isn’t just a man. John recognizes that Jesus is in fact God in the flesh who…

Bethlehem

Center for Evangelists

Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus was foretold by Micah 700 years before Christ’s birth. Micah named the exact town and Matthew records the event.Bethlehem is still standing today and both Biblically and historically is proven to be the actual place where Jesus was born.

Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Matthew 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saved and Sealed until Final Redemption

finalcall07

Many believers have been deceived into believing that they have received the gift of eternal life when they accept Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ saves us from our sin when we accept Him. He delivers us from the powers of darkness; He sets us free from the bondage of sin so that we can follow and obey Him. If we repent and are baptized in water then He puts His seal of acceptance on us by giving us the gift of the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in tongues. That does not mean that we are finally saved.
Jesus enables us to enter the race with Him, to become children of God, to serve Him and to prove ourselves worthy of Him. It is only those who endure with Jesus Christ until the very end that will finally be redeemed, be saved from eternal damnation. Those who do not…

Cast Love

pastorjohnb

Reading: Luke 12: 49-53

Love is patient, love is kind. Love is not rude, love is not easily angered. Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. These words from 1 Corinthians 13 seem so appropriate when we consider today’s passage. Jesus’ words today seem harsh and challenging. ”I have come to bring fire to the earth” sounds ominous and destructive at first. He states He came not to bring peace but to bring division. The passage ends telling of the hardest division: the division of families.

I come not to be served but to be served. Let me wash your feet. Love thine enemies. How can Jesus speak these words elsewhere in the Bible and then say He came to divide families? While all Jesus did and said was based on love, He knew that not all would choose to follow Him. Jesus knew that…
