Here Is Life

Have you ever looked at this words by the Lord Jesus Christ “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. “
(John 10:10)

Is it just a religious Statement or is there more to it. From it, you can truly discover the amazing reality of this statement and how it can bring great positive impact and answers to the life of an ordinary girl or woman wrestling with issues of life. I discovered in it the impact was so real and down to earth in my life, that I packaged it in a simple phrase “ Batsha Here is life “ that’s African for “Young People here is life”

Take this short time to gain an understanding of who Jesus Christ really is.
Though you can’t see him, He is God present everywhere who came to earth by an action of love fought and defeated all the power of evil in your life, by dying on the cross of Calvary for us.
When you sincerely ask him to come into your life and give you the answers you need ( from the salvation of your soul to solutions to very real and personal problems), Jesus will definitely come into your life and do for you what you requested.

In my work with troubled people all over the world, I keep getting report after report from young girls who have looked to Jesus in this simple way and asked him to come into their lives to forgive, save, heal and help them in different ways.- and they have had very real and continuing answers and interventions from the Lord Jesus Christ.

I confidently recommend to you that whatsoever situation you face, you right now talk very sincerely to Jesus Christ in this way.
“Lord Jesus I believe in you and I acknowledge you as the one who suffered and died on the cross on my behalf and rose again so that you may bring forgiveness, salvation and help in my life. I welcome you now – come into my heart save forgive and change me and bring me help and answers in every area of my life. Amen”
As you talk to Jesus like this you must, of course, talk to him in more detail about your life and concerning the requests for the life you want to make with Him. You will begin to find like I and many people did that Jesus Christ brings real answers to issues of life to you. Woman: Here is life.

Dress Code As Ambassadors

dresscode

Hey lovelies ladies, how are you feeling on this day that the Lord has made? Over this side in Melbourne, it is absolutely boiling. Forreal, it’s like I’m sitting in an oven all day, who’s in the same situation?

Topic: The Dress code as Ambassadors of Christ

Okay, this is not going to be a post about don’t wear this, Don’t wear that, DON’T, DON’T, DON’T! Eh nope. This dress code is a spiritual dress code, the dress code of our inner man “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.” (2 Corinthians 4:16)

Okay, so now you are thinking OH NO! Do I need to flip like 10 chapters and memorize 50 verses in the bible? Again no, so relax. This dress code can be found in 1 simple place. Colossians 3:12-17, Yes! in just 1 chapter and 5 verses, Hallelujah right!. This dress code comes when we ourselves as Christians are made new creatures being born again. If you are not born again that is alright, the good thing about God’s saving grace is that anybody can be born again. If you want to do so check out my blog post “The way of Salvation” or just email me through the contact page.

Colossians 3:12-17
“12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

Now isn’t it weird how it say’s “put on” in this passage instead of having? Yes, these characteristics are ones we can’t just learn but need God to grant unto us. The reason we must put these on is so that they can become part of our inner man. Just as we put on normal clothes on our flesh, they become part of us, right? representing who we are, yes?. Exactly the same concept with the inner man, it needs clothes too. We are advised by God to put on these characteristics so that we may represent ourselves in the right manner as ambassadors of Christ. Just as the saying your clothes can reflect your personality more to others, so does the right clothing on our inner man reflect more of who we are in Christ.

So, where ever you go put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, and longsuffering. But above all put on LOVE, for it was through God’s love that we are saved, it is through His love that we are alive today. So that where ever we go people will know that Christ is with us. When we put on these characteristics in our everyday lives we benefit more, for our flesh is not the one that will be judged on judgment day but our inner man.

Even when we commit sins because we are still human, let that not take away this apparel. We must always have it on. Jesus understands our temptations and that is why we are given mercy, but our spiritual apparel must never be taken off. Not for our sake but for His sake as His ambassadors. Stay blessed!

Above all put on Love, let love not be taken away from your spiritual apparel 🙂

The Way Of Salvation

post20

Okay, I have been meaning to post about this topic for a very long time. Many people don’t understand when you start to talk about salvation to them. Some believe salvation is when you choose to become a Christian, others think it’s when you believe that Jesus is real and is the Son of God.

Salvation is not only about believing in Christ but also RECEIVING Him. Salvation is the divine plan of God for us to be in connection with Him again. To not experience death through sin but be free from sin and have everlasting life in heaven.

1st we need to understand that we are all born sinner, through one man. and with sin came death. “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned” (Romans 5:12)

2nd we need knowledge of the saviour. Jesus Christ came on this earth to fulfil this divine plan of God.”For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.” (1 Corinthians 15:21). Through the blood that was shed at the cross, we are free from the bondage of sin. We gain everlasting life in heaven. “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free,[a] and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” (Galatians 5:1)

3rdly there is only 1 way to salvation, not 2, 5, or 10 but 1. Through Jesus Christ we obtain Salvation. I was on twitter the other day, you know doing my thang. I came across this tweet speaking of people in church complaining about how God only made 1 way and why not many ways. This is unacceptable, we should be grateful and rejoice that God loved us so much to even give us 1 way. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

Okay, knowing this you are now aware of salvation. You’re probably thinking great, with this information surely I now have salvation. Girl, No! It’s not enough to just know it, you have to call on Jesus Christ and receive Him in your life. “For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)

Once you have received you are now born again and you are now a new creature. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” ( 2 Corinthians 5:17). You now have a connection to the Father through Jesus Christ. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6). Stay Blessed!

Guideline for A Prayer to receive Salvation
1. Acknowledge that you now understand that you are a sinner and Christ came so that you may be saved “Lord, God, I now know that I am a sinner and cannot save myself, but you sent your son, Jesus Christ. Who carried my sins at the cross and died, that I may be saved and be free from the bondage of sin.”
2. Ask for Jesus to come into your life “Lord, Jesus come into my life, be my personal saviour, wash me clean of all my sins, make me a new creature.”
3. Declare that you are no longer of the world but you now belong to the kingdom of God and resist the devil “Devil I resist you, you have no control over my life, I am not yours, I am no longer of the world but I now belong to God, I am now a child in the Kingdom of God.”
4. Thank God for salvation and receive it “Thanking God for this salvation through your son, Jesus Christ. I receive this salvation today. IN JESUS NAME. Amen.”
