The Promise to the Faithful

John 15: 2

“He (Jehovah) cuts off every branch that doesn’t produce fruit, and He prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.”

  • The unfaithful are threatened in comparison to the faithful.
  • The faithful are rewarded with more fruit.
  • Jehovah taketh away that which is superfluous, which hinders its growth and fruitfulness of the faithful.
  • Don’t be disappointed by the pruning process.  The pruning or purging of fruitful branches, in order to their greater fruitfulness, is the care and work of Jehovah, for His Glory.

Lesson: Faithfulness leads to fruitfulness.


BE A BLESSING!

Romans 14: 22

“You may have the faith to believe that there is nothing wrong with what you are doing, but keep it between yourself and God.”

Lesson: Trust in the Lord and do good.

·         Let us consider our actions – don’t lord it on others.

·         Be careful not to be a stumbling block.

·         God wants you dead (to sin and self), but He also wants you alive (for service).

·         Children imitate – they follow.


O LORD, our Lord,how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Psalms 8 

A psalm of David.

1 O LORD, our Lord,how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens. 2 From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies,to silence the foe and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens,the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars,which you have set in place,

4 what is man that you are mindful of him,the son of man that you care for him? 5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands;you put everything under his feet: 7 all flocks and herds,and the beasts of the field, 8 the birds of the air,and the fish of the sea,all that swim the paths of the seas.
9 O LORD, our Lord,how majestic is your name in all the earth! NIV


CHRIST IS RISEN

“He is not here, but is Risen!” Luke 24: 6

Easter Sunday is the most triumphant and joyous day in the calendar of the Christian Church – and it should be!

For many people the resurrection of Jesus Christ is symbolized by new Easter clothes, or the bright color of daffodils and beautiful white lilies. But most of all, the wonder of His resurrection is symbolized in the hope that beats the hearts of believers everywhere as they sing triumphantly: “Christ the Lord is risen today.”

It is the message “JESUS IS ALIVE!” that lifts Christianity out of the dead superstitions and archaic religions and makes it the abiding faith of millions. The angel’s message is true: “He is not here, but is risen!”

And now God’s promise is for you: “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” Romans 10: 9.

Can I invite you to consider being part of the greater family of Christ Jesus this Easter, so that you may have eternal life. All you need to do is confess Jesus Christ as Lord over your life, and believe in your heart that He still lives, you become an integral part in the body of Christ.

God Bless!
