Holy Spirit Will Help Anyone Overcome His Limitation

 

love God

A person who claims to love God must express it by loving his Son Jesus Christ. The person must also love his or her neighbors. Here are God’s words,

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’”(Luke 10:27 NIV).

“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments” (1 John 5:1-2 NKJV).

The task to love God and our fellow human beings may sound easy but it can be sometimes intensive. It can be tough to truly love the hostile people. Also, it can be challenging to love God wholeheartedly during a difficult situation. However, despite the challenges, believers still have the privilege of depending on empowerment of the Holy Spirit to fully meet the standard of God – “Love God and love your neighbors.”

To overcome the challenge of struggling to fully love God and truly love our neighbors, we must rely on the power of the Holy Spirit.

holy spirit

Christian: Have Confidence In Holy Spirit!

Holy Spirit can help us overcome our limitations and adequately meet the standard of God. To achieve this, we must express our dependence on God. That is, we must pray and express our frustrations and fears to God. We must tell him how we feel, and how powerless we are in a situation. More importantly, we must ask God to send his Holy Spirit to possess us, empower us, and guide us to behave appropriately according to his commandments.

A believer who operates in the realm of the Holy Spirit through prayers and Bible study will receive God’s empowerment to prosper. The person will regain the strength to behave in a manner that glorifies God.

No doubt that Satan will tempt a Christian to act in the flesh and be less loving in a hostile environment, but the fellow can depend on the power of the Holy Spirit to adequately meet the standard of God.

Holy Spirit gives us the power to fully love God and our neighbors. The Bible states, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

Every Christian needs the supernatural power of God (Holy Spirit) to overcome his or her limitations. The divine Spirit of God will energize us to live above sin if we can allow him to lead us! He (Holy Spirit) will empower us to love God as well as loving our fellow human beings – Even under a poisoned atmosphere! The more we rely on the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, the more our strength will increase to fully conform to the standard of God.

Submit yourself to God. Read his word (The Bible); pray, and rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to fully conform to his standard.

genuine love

Christians are required to demonstrate selfless love towards other people. We are not expected to seek selfish gains before we can offer assistance to people who are in need. God himself knows the best way to reward good services; he will reward his selfless children! It is therefore important that Christians endeavor to open-heartedly serve other people. We must do it diligently so that God can bless us.

Implication of the Blood of Jesus Christ

blood of jesus

Crucify him; crucify him, shouted the Pharisees who wanted Jesus dead by all means. The enemies got their wish, but it became my blessing!

Jesus Christ shed his blood on the Cross of Calvary for humanity. He suffered and languished in pain from his persecutors who beat him mercilessly and squeezed the crown of thorns on his head. An already weaken Son of God was forced to carry his own cross as mob chanted “crucify him” to Roman soldiers.

The main goal of the enemies was to kill Jesus Christ. They hope that their effort will stop him from being proclaimed as the Messiah – the Savior of the world.

“Crucify him, crucify him” the mob were shouting. They wanted Jesus dead by all means. The authority (in collaboration with the Pharisees) dragged Jesus to Golgotha where they nailed his arms and feet on the cross. Hammers pounded the nails as they were driven into his arms and feet; he cried in pain but no one was ready to help. The enemies laughed and mocked him as he groaned in pain!

crucifixion

Jesus’ enemies were having a field day as they hung the body of Jesus on the cross and hammered the crown of thorns to his head. They even took their time to post on Jesus’ cross to showcase the allegation they brought against him. The signage was “Hinri” meaning The self-proclaimed “King of Jews.”

Blood run all over Jesus’ body as he was groaning in excruciating pain.

Not just the enemies mocked Jesus Christ, the onlookers and passersby did the same. Even one of the two thieves nailed to the cross took a cheap shot at Jesus stating, “If you are the Son of God, save yourself, and save us also.” (Luke 23:37).

No one sympathized with Jesus Christ, except a few mothers and some men of integrity. Perhaps those few ones murmured, “This is an act of injustice; this man doesn’t deserve this kind of treatment!” However, what influence have the sympathizers gotten? They were powerless by all standards!

suffering

Jesus Shed His Blood to Save Mankind!

Jesus Christ languished in excruciating pain on the cross. Blood flowed from wounds sustained from beatings and crown of thorns hammered to his head. Meanwhile a soldier doubled his punishment as he gave him vinegar to drink when he lamented for water. Perhaps the same soldier tossed spear into his side as water and blood gushed out from his side!

However, the experience of Christ from his enemies is a prophecy in fulfillment. Long before he was born, Isaiah had prophesied about him,

“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:4-5 KJV).

O that the blood of Jesus Christ may never be in vain over my life!

salvation

The Importance of The Blood of Jesus Christ

What has the blood of Jesus Christ gotten to do for anyone who believes?

The blood washes sins away! He cleanses people’s lives from their past mistakes and make them fit for God’s kingdom. Believers receive God’s forgiveness via the blood of Jesus Christ! That is, someone who confesses his sins and prays in the name of Jesus will receive God’s forgiveness.

The blood of Jesus Christ heal all kinds of diseases and sickness. The power of God transpires from the blood of Jesus Christ to perform miracles in the lives of people who believe! That is, anyone who anchors his faith in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ and also trust in his blood will experience God’s supernatural power of healing and deliverance.

The blood of Jesus Christ gives Christians upper hands over the power of darkness! Since no activity of men could prevent Jesus Christ from resurrection, whoever anchors his faith in the same Jesus will have similar experience. No power of man or of Satan will be able to prevail over him!

Here comes the sweetest part:

People who share in the privilege of Jesus’ blood and resurrection power are the candidates of heaven. Jesus Christ will advocate for them on the last day of judgement! They will receive pardon for their sins since Christ himself has already paid for the penalty on the cross! The followers of Jesus Christ will confidently match into God’s paradise where they will rejoice in the presence of God forever!

Having mentioned the great benefits of the blood of Jesus Christ, a person who wants to live an overcomer’s life on earth and also qualify for heaven ought to consider the necessity of becoming a Christian. An inquisitive mind will check out the benefits. Perhaps he may have his own advantage to ditch out! More importantly, someone who is concerned about life after death ought to attempt to declare Jesus Christ as his Lord and Personal Savior!

CHRISTIANS TO WITHSTAND PERSECUTION

persecution
Christians will face persecution in this world, but God will help us overcome!

Today’s believers are in no way different from early day Christians that were severely persecuted by their opponents.

Early believers survived their trial moments; they also had effective evangelism.

Many new souls were added to the faith on daily basis when early Christians were severely persecuted.

 

A young lawyer called Saul spearheaded the persecution of early Christians.

He was obsessed of his Judaism (religion) and persecuted Christianity.

He persecuted Christians from door to door, and from town to town.

Eventually, Saul met with the Lord and became saved.

(Saul converted to Christianity and changed his name to Paul).

 

Jesus Christ saved Paul and turned him to his fisherman – an evangelist! (Acts 9).

 

The conversion of Paul from Judaism to Christianity infuriated the Pharisees who considered him as their effective agent.

They attempted to kill Paul, however God protected him.

God exposed the anti-gospel individuals that wanted to kill Saul as the scripture reported,

 

“… So he (Saul) was with them at Jerusalem, coming in and going out. And he spoke boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus and disputed against the Hellenists, but they attempted to kill him. When the brethren found out, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him out to Tarsus” (Acts 9:28-30).

 

Important Lessons on Persecution of Saints

 

1. Persecution of saints is inevitable

People who have professed their faith in Jesus Christ will suffer persecution in this world, but Jesus will help us prevail.

The persecution of saints would come in different forms, and make believers experience pain.

However, believers ought to maintain focus and serve God effectively.

2. Resolute faith will help Christians overcome persecutions

 

Christians must maintain confidence in God and hold on to our profession of faith in Jesus Christ.

“For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me” (1 cor 15:9-10).

Christians must be courageous to find motivation in our persecutions.

As we endure in faith, we must allow the Holy Spirit of God to rule us.

We must let God’s light shine through us to make Satan ashamed.

 

God will utilize our irresistible faith to conquer Satan.

That is, believers should proclaim the faithfulness of God while we are being persecuted.

The evil wall of the enemy will crack and ultimately collapse as we affirm the faithfulness of God.

 

Christians must ensure to proclaim the faithfulness of God during adversity.

Satan cannot withstand God’s light; he will cave in and yield to God’s light to shine as we maintain irresistible faith in God.

 

3. Christians to preach gospel while under persecution

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you” (2 Corinthians 4:7-12 KJV).

 

A Christian who suffers persecution should endeavor to live a pious lifestyle like Apostle Paul.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:35-39).

Despite repeated persecutions that Paul suffered from his opponents during his time, he was determined to remain an active Christian.

He traveled far and wide to preach gospel.

 

Paul traveled beyond the border of his country and visited various remote countries to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He reached out to many gentile nations and led many unbelievers to Christ.

 

Perhaps the greatest achievement of Apostle Paul is that he wrote many inspiring letters to early Christian churches that were sparsely located around the globe.

Paul’s letter edified early Christians worldwide!

Those letters of Paul eventually became part of the manuscripts that were canonized into the bible.

 

Today, Christians throughout the world continue to find motivation and inspiration from the letters that Paul wrote to early Christian churches!

Christians to Pray for Power to Endure Persecution

 

Christians to pray for God’s strength to endure persecution; we need to ask God for strength to turn our adversity into a motivating factor to preach effective gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

Please pray:

 

Dear Jesus Christ, I appreciate your word that states, “In this world you will be of much tribulation, but be of good shares, I have overcome the world” (Acts 16:32-33).

 

Please give me strength to find motivation in any persecution that I suffer.

Help me to stand firm in faith and preach your gospel under whatever circumstance!

Endow me with strength to maintain stable faith in you always!

 

Please subdue the power of my enemies, and let your Holy Spirit energize me to remain faithful to you, so that I can reign with you in heaven.

 

Please God help me! For the in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

“Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:11-14).

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBORS AS YOURSELF

love

Are Christians allowed to segregate?

Our Lord Jesus commands us to Love our neighbors as ourselves. Christian are expected to love all people equally and avoid segregation.

Believers must understand that it is sinful to give preferential treatment to anyone.

We must not specially favor anyone (or a group of people) at the expense of others. God requires that his worshipers desist from segregation and treat all people equally.

The scripture stated,

“If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors” (James 2:8-9).

 

A Child of God to Avoid Segregation

A person who gives preferential treatment is an unjust person, and he would suffer consequences of his action from God if he (or she) does not repent.

God’s children must love all people and treat them equally – Without partiality.

No Christian is allowed to favor the rich at the expense of the poor. Also, a follower of Jesus Christ must not respect influential people and look down on common people.

A good Christian must learn from God who cares for all people equally.

No iota of partiality is with God! He sends rain in its season to benefit all people. God waters the whole earth to bring out its produce for everyone’s consumption.

In addition, believers must learn from Jesus Christ who demonstrated unbiased love to people of his time (while on earth).

He walked around the town doing good to all people without an element of partiality. Jesus even went out of his way to care for people that were rejected by the society. The Son of God fed poor people and gave hope to the hopeless!

Any Christian who violates the rule of openness and unbiased love will suffer consequences of his action – irrespective of his religious title and/or affiliation.

Every believer must have the mind of Jesus Christ. We must serve God with humility and truly represent Christ. Our openness and sincere interaction will preach better sermons than our speeches.

Children of God ought to pray for God’s grace to practice true love that glorifies Christ.

Believers from all walks of life should read their Bible and practice the teachings of Jesus Christ to the letter!

Our faithful services to Jesus Christ will motivate other people to come closer and receive his salvation. Also, our faithful services will result to our blessings!

Please pray for grace to treat all people equally

Dear God, please give me grace to treat all people equally. Help me to desist from giving preferential treatment to anyone, so that I will not sin against you!

I ask for strength to treat people with respect and love. Let my actions motivate other people to receive your salvation.

Also let my honest services transform to my blessing. For in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed. Amen.

Christians To Love Their Family

family
Family matters to God, therefore Christians are called to be responsible for our family.

All believers must represent God in our various homes.

Our love expression will benefit everyone – Including God!

Bible challenged Christians to be responsible for our homes as stated,

“Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear.

Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel—rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God…

Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered. Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous” (1 Peter 3:1-8).

Bible harshly rebuke any believer who is not responsible for his home. He is called ”An Infidel! (1 Timothy 5:8)

christian family

Show Love to Your Family As You Claim to Love God

Charity begins at home. Therefore, anyone who claims to love God must first start to express it at home.

Our family members share the common blood. They are much closer to us in this world than anyone else; therefore, we must choose to love them dearly.

No argument that every Christian is directly responsible for the welfare of his home!

Our family members deserve our first class attention.

 

Christians Must Not Be Sentimental with Love

There is no exception for the rule of true love.

Christians are not to only specialize in loving our relatives, but we must also love other people as well.

No substitute for genuine love. Therefore, each Christian must love God and also love our neighbors.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)

Believers Must Love Our Christian Community

If fellow Christians do not love our Christian community who else would do?

Believers must dearly love one another.

Christians must care for each other. We must be on the lookout and be protective of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Iron sharpeneth iron. Believers must care and forgive each other. We must move on to celebrate the true love of Jesus Christ despite our minor differences.

So watch yourselves. “If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; and if they repent, forgive them. Even if they sin against you seven times in a day and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ you must forgive them.” (Luke 17:3-4)

Believers must pray and care for one another.

Christians must have common love to benefit ourselves and also promote God’s kingdom.

home love

Back to Home Love!

Christians must not forget that God requires us to promote genuine love in our homes.

We must genuinely express sincere love towards our family members.

A husband must love his wife; the wife must love her husband.

Parents must love their children, and children must love and respect their parents.

Face The Fact of Home Love

Any child of God who ignores the call to care for his (or her) family is simply not practicing true Christianity!

How can a Christian claim he loves God and neglects his family at the same time?

God despises people who are hypocritical with their love!

Our God can only celebrate a person who is not hypocritical but practice the genuine love that glorifies his name.


Family Love Disclaimer

Fact remains that some families have a complicated relationship. Members of a family may have differences that are not easily solved.

However, Christians must understand that we are still obligated to love our family members despite our differences.

We must not allow any sort of differences to prevent us from effectively performing our godly roles in our family.

Every child of God must make a significant effort to put the devil to shame in his (or her) family.

We must demonstrate a true and thorough love of Jesus to glorify God.

True Love Is Essential To Christianity

true love

True love reigns! Christianity is rooted in God’s love, and every Christian must demonstrate it sincerely to satisfy our Maker.

Paul explained the necessity of God’s love to Christians as quoted,

“If I gave everything I have to poor people, and if I were burned alive for preaching the Gospel but didn’t love others, it would be of no value whatever.

Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud” (1 Corinthians 13:3-4 TLB).

Christians Must Allow True Love To Reign

True Love

True and thorough love of God (Genuine love) must be paramount among Christians. We must love other people dearly.

Each believer must understand that nothing is more significant to God than an expression of genuine love towards him, and towards other people.

Jesus Christ declares, Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second most important commandment is this: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’

There is no other commandment more important than these two.” (Mark 12:30-31 GNT)

All Christians must adopt the principle that Jesus Christ came here on earth to establish.

Christ solely came to earth for the sake of love. The Bible states,

“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 NKJV)

Christ is the author of genuine love that all people must celebrate.

He came to earth for the sake of love. He preached love; he was persecuted for the sake of love.

Christ died for the sake of love, and he resurrected for his love to save humanity.

Jesus Christ remains selfless and loving to all people. Through his love, believers will inherit the kingdom of God.

hatredA person that claims to love Christ must not exercise hatred.

God is God of love; his children must also express same true love towards other people so that they too can be able to enter his kingdom.

Are you a Christian? Do you love God? Do you love other people?

Anyone who claims to be a follower of Jesus Christ must prove his or her faith with demonstration of sincere love.

A person who hates others is not in love. Such person will have no place in the kingdom of God.

Jesus declares, “He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now” (1 John 2:9 NKJV)

Christians are heavenly bound people, and we must express true and thorough love for other people.

We must love other people; we must seek their welfare, and we must pray for their salvation.

God’s blessings will remain with people that genuinely love others.

Prayer to have Genuine Love for others

love

Dear God I understand that it takes demonstration of genuine love to inherit your kingdom.

Please give me grace to truly love you and other people.

Let your Holy Spirit empower me to love and seek positive interest of others.

Let my activities promote your interest in people’s lives so that your name can be glorified in every situation.

More importantly, let my heart be sold out for you and help me to live in your righteousness so that I can inherit your eternal kingdom.

For in the name of your only Son Jesus Christ I have prayed.

Amen.

True Love Rules: Seek The Love of God

love of godJesus Christ established a rule that his disciples must love one another dearly, and every Christian must abide by this rule. Also, the love of God must be paramount in the life of every believer. Jesus Christ emphasized the importance of God’s agape’s love (true love); he stated,

“So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples” (John 13:34-35 NLT)

 

Lesson on Love of God

loveLove is God’s law, and all Christians must duly apply it. In fact, nothing is more important to God than love.

He sent his only Son Jesus Christ to die for the world because of love (John 3:16).

Jesus himself testified that he has remarkable love for his disciples.

He stated, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep” (John 10:11 NLT).

roseJesus also emphasized that all his followers must demonstrate love towards one another (John 13:34-35).

Therefore, anyone who claims to be a Christian and lacks love is yet to understand his or her confession.

Christianity means love, and every Christian must demonstrate love to receive God’s blessings on earth and in heaven.

 

Prayer on Genuine Love of God

flowerIn the name of Jesus Christ, I pray for fellow Christians and myself that God give us the spirit of love.

May the Almighty God empower us to love each other! May the churches put segregation aside to love and serve God with the spirit of unity! May pride, stubbornness, and self-righteous spirits be subdued in Christian fold!

May all children of God feel and experience genuine love of God that is beyond human comprehension!

May it be well for all believers in Christ today, tomorrow, and forevermore! Amen.
