Words words words....

When you pray, watch out for both hasty words and too many words (Mat 6:7). The secret of acceptable praying is a prepared heart (Ps 141:1-2) because the mouth speaks what the heart contains (Mat 12:34). If we pray only to impress people, we will not get through to God. The author of Pilgrim’s Progress, John Bunyan, wrote. “In prayer, it is better to have a heart without words, than words without a heart.” Ecc 5:2Be notrash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou uponearth: therefore let thy words be few.”Helping you to win in life through Jesus Christ, Dr Shaun

If you are born once, you will die twice. If you are born twice you will die once.

Wow! Think about this, the bible says you must be born again or you will never get to see the Kingdom of God (John 3v3).“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God”.Jesus said in John 3v5“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water (natural birth) and of the Spirit (spiritual rebirth), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God”.John 3v6-7“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not (don’t be amazed or wonder how can this be) that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again”.Jesus here was speaking about a second birth, not a natural birth, but a spiritual birth. This second birth takes place by the Spirit of God in your heart, your inner being, your spirit man, making you born again. John 3v16For God so loved (God is a God of love) the world (that’s you, me, everybody, everywhere, every time, every race, every colour and creed, th…

We must Decrease so He can Increase

“Jesus was the personification of humility in the midst of His unlimited power”. Our goal should be, to be like our teacher Jesus.In Philipines 2v5-9, we learn that Jesus made himself of no reputation but took on Himself the form of a servant.He humbled Himself and became obedient (He became obedient, it was not automatic) unto death, even the death of the cross.Luke 14v27 says “And whosoever does not bear his cross and come [or go] after Jesus, cannot be His Disciple”.Jesus emptied Himself, we must empty our self and get full of Him. John the Baptise said “I must decrease, while He increases”.We must decrease so He can increase in us.A disciple is a disciplined follower; it takes discipline to be a disciple, that’s delayed gratification. Isaiah 8v16 : “Bind up the testimony; seal the law among my disciples”.The Hebrew word for disciple means: one who is instructed, accustomed, learned, taught and used.In the Greek it means “A learner”, one who is permeated or soaked with the knowledg…
