Mark 7:20-23
And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man.  For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,  thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness.  All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”

This is Jesus explaining in more depth the evil that comes from the heart. After they encountered the Pharisees while eating with unclean hands, Jesus corrected the damaging tradition and rightly defended His disciples from their deceit. Evil in our hearts come in many different thoughts, and many times those thoughts are driven by very powerful emotions, or find fuel in some unresolved past experience. Apart from Christ, we flee from the evil that rises up in our hearts. Sometimes running to Jesus is like running away from ourselves, because we must die to ourselves to truly live for Him.

CAST YOUR BURDENS

20130207-211926.jpg

I just want to repeat the good old saying that says ‘a burden shared is a burden halved’ for those of you who have faith the word tells us to cast our burdens onto the lord because he cares for us. So if this is true and I believe it is why is it that we as people are in the habit of picking up the very same burdens we cast and expecting different results in our situations?? maybe we should rethink that very scripture and understand that to cast means to lay off to put down to throw or hurl. So in other words it’s something that we are taught to get rid of in order that we feel lighter. So why not take a deep breath Inhale think of that thing, situaiton or care that may be burdening you down and blow , exhaling it out of your system and as far away from you as possible. The key to casting is to do it and not reel it back in again or yolk yourself with the same thing try it it is truly liberating.

Discipleship-

                             TITLE: GO INTO ALL THE WORLD

Acts 1v8 But you shall receive power when the holy spirit has come upon you and you shall be witnesses to me in Jerusalem ( local ) and in all Judea (national) Samaria (cross cultural) and to the end of the earth (international)

Jesus last earthly command begins with the promise that you shall receive power from the Holy ghost and ties this directly to the fact that  you shall be witnesses

We need to wait to receive his power to act as the early church did v4 – and being assembled together he commanded them not to go from Jerusalem but to wait for the promise of the father.

So once anointed you will have the power then to preach the good news and boldly declare Jesus as the son of God.

FAITH FOR SALVATION

Faith leading to salvation implies various things

  • Commitment To God

ASSURANCE OF SALVATION

  • Always rely on the facts not feelings i.e. the word and witness of the Holy Spirit
  • At conversion the Holy spirit convicts of sin righteousness and judgement and brings about a new awareness of sin that was not thought of before

Sinners Prayer

Dear Lord,
I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life towards you.  Please forgive me  and wash me in your blood, help me to avoid sinning again.  I believe that your son Jesus Christ died for my sins and was raised from the dead is alive and hears my prayer.  /I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and to reign in my heart from this day forward. fill me with your holy spirit to help me obey you and to do your will for the rest of my life in Jesus name I pray.  Amen
