First Corinthians 1:9 says, “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

The Faithfulness Of God

Have you ever thought about God’s faithfulness? Just think about how faithful God is in so many areas! For example, look at God’s forgiveness. First John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Suppose you have done something and you don’t know whether He would forgive you or not? Wouldn’t that be incredibly sad? What a joy to know that every time, any time, all the time, if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and to cleanse us, from ALL unrighteousness. Hallelujah, what a Savior!

Oh, the God who saved you is the God who keeps you. Praise God for His faithfulness!

“In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:12‬

Written by Angie Liu

Faith is believing God is in control, even when we feel absolutely out of control. We have human teachings that tell us what we much to in order to achieve an outcome..sometimes it works, sometimes it is temporary, sometimes it doesn’t work. During those times our emotions yo-yo up and down with it, and deep inside, something still feels empty and missing. What we must do is close our eyes and breathe and remember our Father is the beginning and the end. He already knows what you are going through and thinking of. You do not need to feel ashamed. Or shy to speak with Him. He already knows and is just waiting patiently with love for you to reach out! If he tried to force you a lesson you were are not ready to learn yet..it would not go over to well. After all He gave man choice. So…what is your choice today? Have faith.. trust in our Lord. He can move mountains for you. Love Him.

We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin.
Romans 6:6

Written by Papama

The Word says that we were slaves to sin. And what comes along with sin? Pain, suffering, anger, anxiety, disease, and death.
Jesus is the inheritance. His never-ending love, joy, peace, and kindness are available to you right in this very moment. Yes, we are called to die with Christ and share in His suffering, and sin still sucks, but we weren’t made to be miserable. That wasn’t the design. The plan has always been for us to be in communion with God. To have a relationship with our loving Creator. But it requires taking every thought captive, focusing our heart and attention on Jesus, and walking in step with the Holy Spirit.

I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know him through your deepening intimacy with him.
Ephesians 1:17

Written by Lynnet

This was Paul’s prayer to all the devoted believers in Ephesus and this its also the kind of prayer we can also pray in our lives.
Firstly we need to acknowledge Gods majesty🙏🏽,his goodness and his love that he has lavished on us through his beloved son Jesus Christ🥰He truly deserve all our honour and worship.🌟
We then ask him to give us the spirit of wisdom and revelation so that we can grow to know him more and be able to walk a Christ-like life..We also pray to be able to have good judgement in every decision we make for thats what wisdom does and we ask him to open our eyes daily so we could see ourselves the way he sees us and see everyone around us the way he does..For if we do this thats when we would be able to love others the way we love ourself(the great commandment)🙏🏽❤️

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15).

Written by Lucious Henry, ANMC Dunoon Vuku Leader

Jesus: The Only Hope

Are Christians fools for believing in Jesus? Are we mere sentimentalists, or do we have reasonable reasons for believing in the Lord Jesus Christ? My dear friend, false religion will never satisfy the hungry heart.

If you go to the tomb of Confucius, you’ll find it is occupied. If you go to the tomb of Buddha, you’ll find it is occupied. If you go to the tomb of Jesus, you’ll find it empty. He is a risen Savior. Hallelujah!

Now that’s very important because, you see, you can take Confucius out of Confucianism and still have Confucianism. And you can take Buddha out of Buddhism and still have Buddhism. But you cannot take Jesus Christ out of Christianity and still have Christianity, because Christianity is not a code, it’s not a creed, it’s not a cause. It is Christ Himself in you.

Jesus alone takes the sting out of sin, the pain out of parting, the gloom out of the grave, the dread out of dying. And Jesus alone gives a hope that is steadfast and sure.

“And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭2:21

Written by Zukisani

Ultimately it is only the Lord Who can rescue and save us. He is the One Who can turn our darkness into light. All that God requires of us is that we stop and call on Him.
He holds the power to save, to deliver and to set us free.

Life is filled with endless questions and uncertainty. Where is my solid ground in this shaky world? Who can I count on that does NOT disappoint, fail, or forsake me? What about these feelings that I struggle with on a daily basis? Who is always with me and for me? Who can redeem and restore my messes? Where is my hope for the future? Who will love me unconditionally,no matter what? The answer is Jesus. My peace lies in Him and not in things of this world.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
‭‭John‬ ‭14:27‬

Written by Zukisani

Often our hearts and our minds are harassed by the worries of life.
Even in the face of trouble, our confidence and trust can be in God.
God does not want us to be troubled or overcome with fear or sadness. It is  only in Him can our weary souls find rest and no other comforter knows exactly what we need except Jesus christ who gives hope beyond the present situation.

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16‭-‬18

Written by Papama

In worship, a lens shift happens. A beautiful shift, where the focus moves from our problems in the moment to His presence. You could be having a terrible day. You could be focusing too hard on the past. But the moment you enter worship, you start to see things more clearly through the highs and lows of life.

When I think about all that God has done for me and how He’s been there for me in every season of life, I can’t help but feel joy and freedom.

Joy is a daily choice that we get to make. In my life I’ve found that I experience true joy through worship and Thanksgiving.

“I leave the gift of peace with you—my peace. Not the kind of fragile peace given by the world, but my perfect peace. Don’t yield to fear or be troubled in your hearts—instead, be courageous!
John 14:27 TPT

Written by Lynnet

oh how privileged we are to experience Christ loving gift of peace he gave us..This gift he gave and left for his disciples is still available for us to also receive it🙏🏼💖
Jesus’ peace goes beyond just believing in him but doing what he requires us to do, so that we can actually experience his fullness of peace..
He told us to not worry or be troubled in our hearts but to be courageous for he knows that his presence is with us and no situation or anyone can take us away from the palm of Gods hands..
besides worrying never does us any good,it actually robs us to hear from God.
So let’s yield our heart each day to him and allow his peace that surpasses all our understanding to guard our hearts and mind in Jesus name🙏🏼❤️
