Never Stop Learning. #BarkadeSallah and #HappyEidelFitri to my #Muslim Brothers & Sisters

28 Jul

‘…You need someone to teach you…’ HEBREWS 5:12

Marlene LeFever quipped, ‘Becoming an effective teacher is simple. You just prepare and prepare until drops of blood appear on your forehead.’

In the 1920s Charlie Chaplin was the most famous person in the world. Born into poverty, he worked on the stage to support himself and by the age of 17 he was a veteran performer. Then at the age of 29 he did something unheard of: he signed the entertainment industry’s first million-dollar contract.

But he wasn’t successful simply because he had talent and drive. He was also teachable. He kept learning and perfecting his gift. Even at the height of his career, the highest paid performer in the world didn’t rest on his laurels. He said: ‘When I watch one of my pictures, I pay attention to what the audience doesn’t laugh at. If several audiences don’t laugh at a stunt, I tear it apart and try to discover what’s wrong. On the other hand, if I hear laughter I hadn’t expected, I ask myself why that particular thing rang the bell with the audience.’

The truth is, if Charlie Chaplin had replaced teachability with complacency and arrogance, we probably wouldn’t even remember his name today. But he didn’t. He never forgot the basics and he committed himself to learning.

Eventually he co-founded United Artists, a mega-movie company that’s still in business today.

There’s an important principle in this story. The Bible says, ‘Though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s Word all over again.’

If you want God to use you, stay teachable and never stop learning.


2 Sam 3:22-7:17; 
Ps 46;
Luke 9:57-62;
Pr 16:20-22;

Don’t Lose Your Compassionate Edge (3)

26 Jul

‘…We have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities…’ HEBREWS 4:15

Dr Joseph Parker told his theology students, ‘Preach to the suffering and you will never lack a congregation.

There is a broken heart in every pew.’ Don’t lose your compassionate edge, because you can’t heal a broken heart unless you can first empathise with it.

The Bible says, ‘We have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities.’ When you lose touch with people, you lose your touch when it comes to ministering to them.

Jesus went looking for the leper, the loser, the lonely, the lost and the lowest in society. And He was comfortable around them. Are you?

Serving others is actually good for your health. A survey conducted at 44 major universities reveals that giving protects your overall health twice as much as an aspirin protects your heart against disease. Dr Stephen Post, who conducted the survey, says, ‘Giving is the most potent force on the planet and will protect your whole life.’

The benefits of compassion to your physical health are so strong that if compassion wasn’t free, pharmaceutical companies would herald the discovery of a stupendous new drug called ‘give back’ instead of ‘Prozac’.’

We give for different reasons: to get an income tax deduction; to make a good impression and have people think well of us; or because we’re put under pressure.

You can give without loving, but you can’t love without giving. Your time, talent and treasure are to be shared with others. When you refuse, you’re neither happy, holy nor healthy.


2 Sam 1:1-3:21; 
Luke 9:46-56; 
Ps 42:6-11; 
Pr 16:17-19;

Don’t Lose Your Compassionate Edge (2)

‘…Faith…if it does not have works, is dead.’ JAMES 2:17

Mother Teresa said, ‘The biggest disease today isn’t leprosy or cancer. It’s the feeling of being uncared for, unwanted-of being deserted and alone.’ As a result, she spent her life rescuing sick babies and giving dignity to the dying. Asked why she did it, she replied, ‘Because Jesus did.’ What a great answer!

When simultaneous disasters hit different countries around the world, humanitarian organisations say we suffer from ‘donor fatigue’. Let’s add one more: ‘compassion failure.’

Philosopher Miguel de Unamuno wrote, ‘Warmth, warmth, more warmth! For we are dying of cold and not of darkness. It is not the night that kills, but the frost.’

Think about this: of the 1,189 chapters in the Bible, 250 contain the words of the prophets. That’s roughly 25 percent. Half of what they say denounces sin and the other half condemns those who see human suffering and do nothing about it.

Yet events that horrified those same prophets take place in our world every day, and we’re immune to them. Like wearing a watch, you get used to it and after a while you don’t even notice it. But the prophets noticed! They never became desensitised to sin-or human suffering. And you mustn’t either. You say, ‘But my main focus at the moment is on building up my faith.’ That’s a good thing; but never forget that ‘Faith by itself, if it does not have works [of compassion], is dead.’


Eph 4:17-6:24; 
Ps 42:1-5;
Luke 9:37-45;
Pr 16:16; 


This is your morning dew. You shall Succeed IJN!

‘…When He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them…’ MATTHEW 9:36

Christ’s concern for a hurting world revealed itself in two ways: condemnation towards those who took advantage of others and compassion towards those who couldn’t help themselves.

One time He took a whip and threw the money changers out of the temple; another time He healed the sick and fed the hungry.

There’s a lesson here: you can become complacent and say, ‘I know there’s trouble in the world. It’s regrettable. But as long as it doesn’t touch me personally, I’d prefer not to think about it.

Cheating goes on every day in business and politics. That’s just the way things are.’ Like the priest and the Levite in the story of the Good Samaritan, you ‘pass by on the other side’ (Luke 10:30-36).

The sad fact is that even churches that faithfully preach the Word and win souls (two all-important missions) fail in this area. Why? Because they’re afraid of being identified with those who promote a ‘social gospel’.

But the opposite should concern us! ‘If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity…how can the love of God be in him?…Let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth’ (1John 3:17-18 NIV).
What moves you? Success in business? Building a great family? Excelling in ministry? Those are worthy goals, but if you want to know what moved Christ, read this: ‘When He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion.’ So don’t lose your compassionate edge.


Eph 1:1-4:16;

Encouragement-It’s a Powerful Thing

23 Jul

‘If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging.’ ROMANS 12:8

Many a man and woman who quit would have kept going if they had just received a word of encouragement from someone.

Encouragement is so vital that the Scriptures rank it up there with gifts like teaching and leadership (Romans 12:6-8).

Here are two stories that illustrate the power of encouragement.

Story one:
Not long ago, the world watched as three grey whales, icebound off Point Barrow, Alaska, floated battered and bloody, gasping for breath at a hole in the ice. The whales’ only hope was to be somehow transported five miles past the ice pack to the open sea. Rescuers began cutting a string of breathing holes about twenty yards apart in the six-inch thick ice. For eight days they painstakingly coaxed the whales from one hole to the next, mile after mile. Along the way, one of the trio vanished and was presumed dead. But finally, with the help of Russian icebreakers, the other two whales, Putu and Siku, swam to freedom.

Story two:
Jackie Robinson was the first black player in the US to play major league baseball. While breaking baseball’s colour barrier, he faced jeering crowds in every stadium. Playing one day in his home stadium in Brooklyn, he made an error and his own fans began to boo him. As he stood, humiliated, at second base, ‘Pee Wee’ Reese came over and stood next to him. He put his arm around Robinson and they faced the crowd together. The fans grew quiet; the game continued. Robinson later said that arm around his shoulder saved his career!

Encouragement-it’s a powerful thing. So who can you encourage today?

1 Cor 15:39-55;

The Loneliness of Leadership

20 Jul

‘…That you may not bear it yourself alone.’ NUMBERS 11:17

Moses said to God, ‘Why have You…laid the burden of all these people on me?’ (v. 11 NKJV).

God replied, ‘…Gather to Me seventy men…I will take of the Spirit that is upon you and will put the same upon them…that you may not bear it yourself alone’ (vv. 16-17 NKJV).

Identify your God-given strengths, then delegate the rest to those who have strengths in your areas of weakness.

Every leader is responsible for areas in which they have little or no competence. And when they try to exercise authority in those areas, they hinder everything and everybody under their watch. Put bluntly, there are things you are responsible for that you’ll never be good at, that you need to keep your nose out of and give to others!

Why do we have such a hard time doing this?

1) Pride. Success is intoxicating and intoxicated people don’t think too clearly.
We assume our abilities are broader than they actually are. Admitting weakness doesn’t make you less effective; it just confirms what everybody around you already knows!

2) Ignorance. We feel bad about delegating our weak areas because we assume everybody hates to do what we hate to do.
Not so.
You’re allowing others to shine; your limitations are their opportunities.

3) Independence. We think if the job is to be done ‘right’ we must do it ourselves. But leadership isn’t just about getting things done; it’s about getting things done through others.
If you can’t find somebody to hand things to, look in the mirror! The people who follow you are exactly where you’ve led them! If you’ve nobody to delegate things to, guess who needs to change?

Looking Good, or Doing Good? 18 July, 2014.

18 Jul

‘…Jesus…went about doing good…’ ACTS 10:38

The Bible says, ‘God anointed Jesus…with the Holy Spirit and with power, Who went about doing good…’

When you’re led by God’s Spirit, your focus won’t be on looking good, but on doing good.

You say, ‘But I’m so busy!’ Nobody was busier than Jesus, yet He always responded to those in need.

In Luke chapter 10 He tells of a Jewish traveller who was attacked by a gang and left to die by the road. First a Levite, then a priest passed by. But each had important appointments to keep, so they didn’t stop. Then a Samaritan came along. Now, he had every reason to look the other way, because the Jews and the Samaritans were long-standing enemies. Instead, ‘…He…came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion’ (Luke 10:33 NKJV).

Compassion will make you stop and rearrange your priorities. This Samaritan realised that where he was at that moment was more important than his next appointment.

What would you have done that day? Do you think you’d have acted like him?

How about when God tries to interrupt your inflexible, tightly-organised, written-in-concrete schedule and asks you to make time for someone who’s hurting? Are you willing to forgo your plans and do what He wants? If you’re too busy to reach out to those who are hurting, you’re too busy!

You say, ‘But I’m shy around people.’ Then start with the people you know in your local church.

‘Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith’ (Galatians 6:10 NKJV).


1 Sam 18:1-20:29; 
Ps 140;
Luke 8:26-39; 
Pr 16:3; 


This is your morning dew. You shall Succeed IJN!

Are You a ‘Stephen’? (2)

18 Jul

‘Choose…men…full…of the Spirit.’ ACTS 6:3

Stephen was also chosen for leadership in the New Testament church because he was ‘full of…the Holy Spirit’ (v. 5 NIV).

Why is that important? Because Jesus said to His disciples: ‘…You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem (your home base), and in all Judea (those within driving distance) and Samaria (places where you won’t necessarily be welcomed) and to the end of the earth’ (Acts 1:8 NKJV).

Paul writes, ‘…Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit…’ (Ephesians 5:18).

The story is told of a pastor who was seen drinking a glass of wine at dinner. Seizing on Paul’s words, ‘Be not drunk with wine,’ the deacon board called for his immediate resignation. Whereupon the pastor responded, ‘Then let’s all resign. You say I failed the first half of the commandment, “Be not drunk with wine.” But you’ve all failed the second half, “Be filled with the spirit”.’ Understand this: you need to be continually filled with God’s Spirit. After all, you’re not running your car on the first tank of petrol you put in it, are you? Remember the old ad for Brylcreem hair gel for men? ‘A little dab’ll do ya!’ That doesn’t work when it comes to leadership in God’s kingdom! You’re either being led by the Holy Spirit-or your own spirit.

‘But I have talent,’ you say. Yes, and God will use it. But when it comes to building what He wants built, it’s, ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord’ (Zechariah 4:6 NKJV).

Are You a ‘Stephen’? (3)

16 Jul

‘Choose…men…full of…wisdom.’ ACTS 6:3

Another leadership qualification Stephen possessed was: wisdom.

‘Seek out…men…full of…wisdom’ (v. 3 NKJV).

Charles Spurgeon said, ‘Wisdom is the right use of knowledge.’

You can have a head full of knowledge, but if you don’t have the wisdom to use it properly, you can’t lead people.

Just as a stream rises no higher than its source, an organisation can rise no higher than its leadership.

Dr John Maxwell refers to this as ‘the law of the lid’. In his book ‘The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership’, he writes: ‘Leadership ability is the lid that determines a person’s level of effectiveness. The lower an individual’s ability to lead, the lower the lid on his potential. The higher their leadership, the greater their effectiveness. To give you an example, if your leadership scores an eight, then your effectiveness can never be greater than a seven. If your leadership is only a four, then your effectiveness will be no higher than a three. Your leadership ability-for better or for worse-always determines your effectiveness and the potential impact of your organisation.’

Paul told Timothy, ‘…Give attendance to reading…’ (1 Timothy 4:13 NKJV). Someone who won’t read is more to be pitied than someone who can’t read.

The difference in what you are right now and what you’ll be 25 years from now will always be in direct proportion to your reading habits, the relationships you cultivate and the time you spend with God.

Obviously Stephen was the right choice. ‘Then the word of God spread and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith’ (Acts 6:7 NKJV).

Are You a ‘Stephen’? (1)

15 Jul

‘…And they chose Stephen…’ ACTS 6:5

The New Testament church grew so fast that the administrative aspect of it became overwhelming. The apostles weren’t getting enough time to pray and study the Scriptures, so they picked seven men to handle the business side of things. Stephen was one of them.

For the next few days let’s examine his qualifications:

financial integrity.

‘…Seek out from among you seven men of good reputation…whom we may appoint over this business’ (v. 3 NKJV).

Now, it goes without saying that if you’re going to handle the church’s finances, you must first have a proven track record in handling your own. That calls for saving, sowing and spending wisely. It also means putting God first in your finances.

Here’s a biblical question you need to think about: ‘Will a man rob God?’ Apparently, yes. God said, ‘…You have robbed Me! But you say, “In what way have we robbed You?” In tithes and offerings’ (Malachi 3:8 NKJV). Maybe you’re thinking, ‘Uh-oh, here comes the commercial!’ No, tithing isn’t a matter of money, but of priorities.

God doesn’t want your leftovers, He wants your ‘first-fruits’ (Proverbs 3:9). Tithing is also a matter of obedience. ‘If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity…’ (Job 36:11 NKJV).

When it comes to leadership in God’s work, if you’re not 10% behind it, how can you be 100% behind it? If you’re not already doing it, try tithing your income for one year. It’s like going into partnership with God. He promises to ‘…pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it’ (Malachi 3:10 NKJV).


1 Sam 11-13; 
Pr 15:33;
Luke 7:36-50; 
Ps 118:19-29; 


This is your morning dew. You shall Succeed IJN!

The Law of Love (2).

10 Jul

‘Above all, clothe yourselves with love…’ COLOSSIANS 3:14

God’s love is the most powerful force the world has ever seen. And as a follower of Christ, it is up to you to carry the torch and keep it burning.

The Bible says, ‘…Clothe yourselves with tender-hearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience…Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony’ (vv. 12 & 14 NLT).

It’s one thing to quote Scriptures, pray long articulate prayers in public, study theology and attend church. But only when people see your love will they be impacted by your life. Love, not words, is the true test of your discipleship.

It’s said that General Omar Bradley once made a business trip on a commercial airline wearing a regular suit instead of his military uniform. When he reached his seat, he started doing some paperwork. As it turned out, the man sitting next to him was a young army private who didn’t recognise Bradley. So, after take-off, he turned to the general and said, ‘Since we’re going to be together for a while, it would be nice if we got to know each other. My guess is that you’re a banker.’ Not wishing to seem rude, but needing to finish his work, Bradley replied, ‘No, I’m General Omar Bradley, a five-star general in the US Army. I head up the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon in Washington, DC’. Without missing a beat, the young private replied, ‘Well, sir, that’s a very important job, and I sure hope you don’t blow it!’

Your most important job today is to show God’s love-so don’t blow it!

Ps 79;

The Law of Love.

9 Jul

‘A new command I give you: Love one another.’ JOHN 13:34

A newspaper told the story of a boy with cancer who was going through chemotherapy and losing his hair. To show their love and support, his classmates all shaved their heads so he wouldn’t be embarrassed about returning to school. The newspaper carried a picture of them all with their bald heads, accompanied by the caption, ‘Everything we do, we do together.’

That’s the ‘law of love’ Jesus was talking about when He said, ‘A new command I give you: Love one another.’

This must have sounded radical to the people Jesus was addressing, for they lived by two Old Testament laws:

1) the law of revenge. Before Moses came along, the law of the land was the law of the jungle. It said in essence, ‘If you hurt me I’ll hurt you and then hurt you even more!’ Enemies actively sought ways to settle old scores because revenge wasn’t just acceptable, it was encouraged.

2) the law of retribution. In Moses’ time, revenge was replaced with retribution, which allowed ‘an eye for an eye’, but no more (Leviticus 24:20). You could do to your enemies only what they had done to you. To us this sounds harsh, but back then it was major progress.

Then Jesus came along and introduced a third law: the law of love. It meant you didn’t have to get even; you could choose to forgive. Indeed, if you didn’t, your prayers wouldn’t be answered. This new commandment demonstrates the unconditional love God shows to us-then calls us to live the same way. So the law of love should govern your life every day.


Judges 16:23-31; 
John 15:1-17; 


This is your morning dew. You shall Succeed IJN!

It’s Up to You.

8 Jul

‘…He will reward each person according to what he has done.’ MATTHEW 16:27

The Bible says, ‘For the Son of Man is going to come in His Father’s glory with His angels and then He will reward each person according to what he has done.’

Let’s be clear: how you live now will determine what happens to you after you die. The choices you make each day don’t come to nothing when you pass away. They matter and they’ll continue to matter throughout eternity. Your eternal destination is determined by what you believe, but your eternal reward is the result of how you behave. If you believe that and live accordingly, it will change how you think about life, how you think about God, indeed what you do one minute from now.

God wants you to know that the positive consequences of your actions today can change your eternal prospects in astounding and wonderful ways and He doesn’t want you to waste another minute.

You don’t have to worry what awaits you on the other side of your last heartbeat. Others don’t decide that-you do! When the truth of this hits you, you’ll say, ‘I can’t believe I’ve prepared for my children’s future and my own retirement, but not given a thought to my real future!’

One man put it like this: ‘I’ve always thought about finishing well. Now it turns out that death is just the starting gate.’

The truth is that you can’t do anything about your past, but starting right now you can change your future-one choice, one day, one act at a time. It’s up to you.

Forgive, for Your Own Sake!

6 Jul

‘…Forgive as the Lord forgave you.’ COLOSSIANS 3:13

A lady writes: ‘I found my husband with another woman. Although he begged me for forgiveness, I wanted my pound of flesh, so I filed for divorce even though our kids asked me not to. Two years later my husband was still trying to get me back, but I wanted none of it. He’d hurt me and I wanted revenge. Finally he gave up, married a young widow with two children, and rebuilt his life without me. They’re all so happy and I’m just a lonely, miserable woman, who let bitterness ruin her life.’

Now there’s no question that infidelity is wrong. But without forgiveness, what’s left? There’s a point at which anger stops being a healthy emotion and becomes a driving force. Like a drug, you need larger and larger doses. Once that happens, you move even further from forgiveness, because without anger you’ve no energy at all. It’s what drives hate groups and extremists. Without bitterness they’ve no reason to exist. If you take bigotry from the racist, revenge from the zealot and chauvinism from the sexist, what’s left?

‘Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.’

Bitterness is fatal; it kills your soul.
So how can you stop yourself from becoming bitter when you’ve been hurt?

a) By looking into the face of the person who hurt you and seeing, instead, the face of the One who showed you mercy when nobody else would have given you another chance.

B-) By realising that before the day, the week, the month or the year is out, you’ll be needing mercy yourself.

Do You Want Your Church to Grow? (4)

5 Jul

‘The new wine is found in the cluster…’ ISAIAH 65:8

The fourth, and perhaps the most frustrating challenge we face when it comes to church growth, is to involve them. Why is that? A message on a bulletin board outside a church gives us a clue. The top line says, ‘We care about you,’ and the line underneath reads: ‘Sundays. 10 am only.’

A cartoon by Erik Johnson puts it another way. At the top in big bold letters is a sign that reads: ‘The challenge of starting a men’s ministry.’ Standing directly under the sign is a group of bored-looking guys. To the right of the group is the pastor, who quips: ‘So far, the only thing we have in common is an aversion to singing, socialising and sharing.’

People can feel lost and lonely in a crowd, even if it’s in church. Sitting in a pew looking at the back of somebody’s head for an hour and a half doesn’t meet anyone’s emotional, relational, or spiritual needs.

As a member of Christ’s body, the church, it’s your job to take the first step and initiate contact with those around you.

Jesus went out of His way to love the fallen, the fraudulent and the faithless-people others wouldn’t have anything to do with.

When someone comes into your church and finds Christ, your job has only begun. They are called to serve and you are called to show them how, when and where. ‘The new wine is found in the cluster…’ Wine speaks of joy. But you can’t get it out of a single grape; you’ve got to have a ‘cluster’. Are you getting the idea?

Do You Want Your Church to Grow? (3)

4 Jul

‘…They were all filled with the Holy Spirit…’ ACTS 4:31

Inspire them. To be inspired is to feel motivated and excited about what you are doing.

The story is told of a little boy sitting in church with his mother. On the platform behind the pastor were three flags; the little boy asked her about the first one. ‘That’s our nation’s flag,’ she said. Then he wanted to know about the second flag. She whispered, ‘That’s the Christian flag.’ Finally he asked about the third flag. Telling him to be quiet, she whispered, ‘That’s for those who died in service.’ Innocently he asked, ‘Which service did they die in, the morning or evening service?’

Yes, your church should be a place of reverence and order, but it should also be alive with the power and presence of God.

A sign on a little country store said it all: ‘There’s no place anywhere near this place, that’s anything like this place, so this must be the place!’

That’s what God wants His church to be. You ask, ‘What was church like back in the days of the early apostles?’ Distinctive! Dynamic! Demonstrative! ‘When they had prayed, the place where they were assembled…was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.’

According to the latest opinion poll, nowadays a ‘committed’ church member is somebody who attends church twice a month. Wow!

The New Testament believers went every day. Furthermore, ‘They were all (every member) filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness.’

Jesus is many things-but boring isn’t one of them. So let’s invite people, instruct them, and inspire them!


Ezek 46-48; 
Pr 15:3;
Luke 5:1-11; 
Ps 102:12-17; 


You shall Succeed IJN!

Do You Want Your Church to Grow? (2)

3 Jul

‘My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.’ HOSEA 4:6

Instruct them. ‘Go…make disciples…teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…’ (Matthew 28:19-20 NKJV).

When your focus is on not only winning people to Jesus but making them disciples of Jesus, He promises, ‘…I am with you…’ (v. 20 NKJV).

Today we are raising a scripturally unenlightened generation. In a survey conducted in New York City, nine out of ten people couldn’t repeat one of the Ten Commandments or name one of the first four books of the New Testament. One man thought Dan and Beersheba were husband and wife! Another thought an epistle was the wife of an apostle! We smile, but it’s a deadly serious issue.

God said, ‘My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.’ Jesus said, ‘…Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures?…’ (Mark 12:24 NIV).

Many of the problems we seek counselling for could be resolved and in some cases avoided altogether, if we took time each day to get into God’s Word.

The reason many of us are spiritually sick is not because the medicine failed, but because we don’t take it.

Basically, we’re all motivated by reward. So read this: ‘This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success’ (Joshua 1:8 NKJV).

Do you want to be strong spiritually? Get into the Scriptures. Do you want to succeed in life? Get into the Scriptures.


Ezek 43-45; 
Luke 4:31-44; 
Ps 102:1-11; 
Pr 14:35-15:2; 


This is your morning dew. You shall Succeed IJN!

Do You Want Your Church to Grow? (1)

2 Jul

‘…And the Lord added to the church daily…’ ACTS 2:47

God doesn’t mind your church having a small congregation. What He objects to is your church having a small vision, for that limits what He can do through you.

The story’s told of a tourist visiting a small English village. He asked an old gentleman, ‘Is there anything special about this place?’ The old man smiled and said, ‘Yes, you can start here and go anywhere else on earth.’

In Acts chapter 5 verse 28 the New Testament church was accused of ‘…filling Jerusalem with your doctrine…’. And in chapter 17 verse 6, Paul and Silas were accused of ‘…turning the world upside down…’ What impact!

God has a plan for church growth and you have a part to play. You are called to: invite them. You say, ‘Isn’t that my pastor’s job?’ No, your pastor is a shepherd. Shepherds don’t give birth to sheep; sheep do that. When was the last time you brought someone to church? If you discovered a cure for cancer or Alzheimer’s, wouldn’t you share it?

Jesus said, ‘A certain man gave a great supper and invited many and sent his servant…to say to those who were invited, ‘Come, for all things are now ready’ (Luke 14:16-17 NKJV). When the invited guests started making excuses as to why they couldn’t come, ‘The master said to the servant, “Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled”‘ (v. 23 NKJV). Note the words ‘compel them to come’. Pick them up in your car, arrange breakfast before church or lunch afterwards. Get creative, but whatever you do, bring them to church!

What Will You Leave Behind?

1 Jul

‘A good man leaves an inheritance…’ Proverbs 13:22

Paul probably didn’t leave any money or property when he died, but he did leave a legacy-a superior one! His legacy was his writings, those he won to Christ, those he mentored and his enduring influence.

Every day your life touches other lives in unseen ways. You don’t have to know someone personally in order to experience the blessing of their legacy. Like walking into an empty room and catching a whiff of someone’s perfume, your impact can continue to be felt long after you’re gone.

Usually we associate legacies with dying and we don’t particularly like the topic. Or we assume that since our legacy won’t be revealed for years, we don’t need to start investing in it now. In some cases, we feel like we’ve little or no control over what we leave behind anyway. Not so: ‘A good man leaves an inheritance.’ What will yours be? More importantly, what’s it going to cost you? Since the best gifts aren’t always handed down in your will, why not try for something more meaningful-something that points to who you were.

It’s one thing to measure success by the money in your bank account, the size of your property holdings and the value of your stocks portfolio. It’s entirely another to measure it by intangibles like being a faithful marriage partner, raising great kids, building God’s kingdom and leaving your light burning brightly when you go.

All great legacies come with a price tag. To move beyond mediocrity, you must invest every day in the accounts of those who follow you!

Ps 98;
Luke 4:14-30;

‘…After waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.’ Hebrews 6:15

When you’re praying for something, the last thing you want to hear God say is ‘Wait!’ But sometimes He does. And in order to walk with Him you must learn to be patient, because He works according to His schedule and not yours. All your praying and pleading won’t accelerate the process, it’ll just frustrate you.

Furthermore, if life has indulged your every want and whim, learning to wait on God will be like going through spiritual rehab.

When Abraham was 75, God promised to make him ‘…a father of many nations’ (Genesis 17:4 NKJV). But he had to wait 24 more years before he ‘received what was promised’.

Waiting isn’t simply something you do in order to get what you want; waiting produces patience, maturity, understanding and character.

What God accomplishes in you while you’re waiting is often more important than the thing you’re waiting for.
‘You need to persevere, so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised’ (Hebrews 10:36 NIV).

Now, waiting isn’t an excuse for dodging reality, shirking your responsibility, or not doing the right thing. For example, if you’re up to your eyeballs in debt due to overspending, don’t sit around waiting for God to send you a big cheque. Learn to discipline yourself and adopt sound financial principles like tithing, budgeting, and doing without it until you can pay for it.

Above all, waiting means making a decision to trust and obey God when things aren’t going the way you planned. It’s saying, ‘Lord, I’m counting on You and I don’t have a backup plan.’

Lessons from the Prodigal Son (1). 24 June, 2014.

24 Jun

‘…[He] wasted his substance…’ Luke 15:13

The Prodigal Son made two mistakes:

1) He rejected his father’s authority.
The first step that gets you into trouble is the one that takes you away from God. Like the Prodigal Son, you leave home saying, ‘Give me.’ And if you’re fortunate enough to survive your own best thinking, you come back home saying, ‘Forgive me.’
God loves you. Everything you need, He has already provided!

2) He left his father’s house. The devil will do whatever it takes to get you out from under God’s influence and protection.
He’ll put a restless spirit in you so that nothing makes you happy.
Two areas he will work the hardest to generate discontent in are:

a) Your marriage. That’s why you constantly need to work on it. The reason there are weeds in your garden instead of roses is because you don’t spend enough time working there. Your marriage isn’t just a covenant before God, it’s a shelter for your passions and dysfunctions. Furthermore, that ‘other person’, who looks so attractive to you, has baggage, too. And when they move in, they’ll bring it with them!

b) Your church. Who feeds you spiritually? Who monitors your growth in God? Would you let your children stay home from school because they don’t like the teacher or don’t want to learn? Come on, be sensible! God says His Word is like ‘…a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces’ (Jeremiah 23:29 NKJV).
When the hammer of God’s Word falls in church next Sunday morning-you need to be under it. You should say, ‘I was glad when they said unto me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord”‘ (Psalms 122:1 NKJV).

1 Sam 25:2-42; 
Rom 12:14-21; 


This is your morning dew. You shall Succeed IJN!
