What does it mean that God is with us?”

Answer: It is good to know that God is omnipresent (everywhere at one time)—it is one of His attributes. Coinciding with His omnipresence are the attributes of omniscience (all knowledge) and omnipotence (all power). These concepts are a bit much for us humans to comprehend, but God knows that, too (Isaiah 55:8). God fills His creation and is universally present in person, in understanding, and in power at all times. “He is not far from any one of us” (Acts 17:27).   On a more personal level, God is with all believers today in that His Holy Spirit indwells us. This indwelling can only happen if one is born again (John 3:3). First John 5:11-12 tells us it is Jesus who indwells us: “This is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.   Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not… Read More »What does it mean that God is with us?”

Jesus prayed to the father

Reasons why Jesus prayed Prayer is a means of talking to our heavenly father. Jesus, while he was physically here on earth, did pray to his father. Why did Jesus pray? He prayed to receive power, strength and grace to fulfill his mission, or task, on earth. Jesus always prayed to be a role model to his disciples. He also prayed to honour God, his father.   We as the followers of Jesus must do the same. Contents of Jesus’ prayer Jesus taught us how to pray when he gave us ‘The Lord’s Prayer’. So, when we pray we should first give thanks to God. We thank God for giving us a new a day, a new life. We thank him for providing food, clothes, money for our parents.   After thanks, we should confess our sins. We must forgive those who have offended us. This is to allow God… Read More »Jesus prayed to the father

Jesus gives us a new life

A new life means a changed life. It means that a person living in sin suddenly changes and gives up his sinful ways. As a result 1          The old character gives way to a new character. 2          The old way that led to destruction now changes and leads to a new life of salvation. 3          The old attitude changes to new attitude. 4 The old attitude of cheating, lying, fighting, abusing, cheating in examination, disobedience, etc., now changes to telling the truth, loving, obedience and kindness.   A new life in Christ means that a sinner who had lived his life in deceit, lying, disobedience, and so on, now accepts Jesus Christ into his life and so becomes a child of God. Such a person has a new life. New life can only come through Jesus Christ. Repentance of sins and acceptance of Jesus Christ will give us a new… Read More »Jesus gives us a new life

THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

According to Paul in his teaching, a person that has the Holy Spirit in him manifests these qualities in his daily life activities – love, joy, peace, patience or longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, self-control, and so on. With the above qualities, we would be able to be law-abiding towards God and men.   Moral lessons 1 As Christians we should pray for the gift of the Holy Spirit to help us avoid the life of sin. 2 Anytime we want to engage in Christian programmes like evangelism, church service, fellowship, children’s concert, etc., we should pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. 3. In our daily personal activities like going to school, work, travelling, etc. we should ask the Holy Spirit to guide us.   Remember Jesus promised his disciples the gift of the Holy Spirit which he said would come from the father after his ascension into… Read More »THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

When Paul was persecuting the Christians in Jerusalem before his conversion, many disciples left the place and went to other parts of the world. The Spirit of Christ was with them guiding them on how to do the work of the Gospel.   An example was Philip who went to Samaria and preached the Gospel. The Spirit of Christ in him made him to convert many people and to baptise them in the name of Jesus. The Spirit of Christ also gave him the power to heal the lame and blind people. He also cast demons from those that were possessed.   The Spirit also made Peter to have the power to lay hands on people and they received the Holy Spirit. When some believers that remained in Jerusalem heard that Philip had converted a lot of people to Christianity in Samaria, they were happy. They sent Peter to go… Read More »The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Jesus promises His Spirit

When Jesus was about to ascend into Heaven, he promised his disciples the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit represents the spirit of Jesus and of God the father. In John 16:4-11, Jesus told his disciples that he would soon go back to his father. They became very sad. Jesus then explained to them that he would not leave them alone. He said he would send them the Holy Spirit who would be their counsellor. The Holy Spirit would teach the world righteousness and condemn evil in the hearts of people.   On Pentecost Day, the Holy Spirit was sent on the twelve apostles. Later, other believers started receiving the spirit because the promise was for all who would believe in Jesus. The Holy Spirit guided the early disciples in their work of spreading the gospel. The same Holy Spirit is also guiding us today as Christians.   Evidence of the… Read More »Jesus promises His Spirit

Jesus demonstrated his love to people

There are many instances in the Bible when Jesus demonstrated his love to people. Examples are Blind Bartimeaus. One day, Jesus came to Jericho. As he was leaving, the disciples and many people followed him. Bartimeaus, a blind beggar and son of Timaeus, was sitting by the roadside. When he heard that Jesus was passing by, he cried out to Jesus for help. He said, ‘Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me’. He did not stop shouting out until Jesus heard him and stopped.   Jesus sent for him. As he was coming, he threw away his garment. When he got to Jesus, Jesus asked him, ‘What do you want me to do for you’? The blind man answered, ‘Master, let me receive my sight’. Jesus replied him, ‘Go your way; your faith has made you well’. Immediately, the blind man received his sight and followed Jesus. Blind Bartimaeus… Read More »Jesus demonstrated his love to people

God’s way of showing love to His people

The love of God to his people is shown through many ways. He provides such needs as food, shelter/house and clothes for his children. He makes the sun to shine both on the good and on evil people. God also sends rain on both the just and the unjust. It is the love of God that brings sinners to repentance. The love of God for the world made him to send his only begotten son, Jesus, into the world to perform different miracles, signs and wonders. Jesus had pity on the sick, lame, blind, and many who had any need. He gave hope to the hopeless and life to the lifeless.   Jesus was nailed to the cross and died for the sins of the people. He shed his blood for the forgiveness of sins. Jesus told us that we should love one another and be perfect as our heavenly… Read More »God’s way of showing love to His people
