Grace for you today !
Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,” ‭‭Jude‬ ‭1:20‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Praying in the Holy Spirit means praying in tongues.

Tongues is a weapon from God, a powerful instrument made in heaven, that has many wonderful benefits. One has to experience it to really appreciate its blessedness. One of them is that you can build yourselves up on your most holy faith by praying in tongues.

When you go through depression or disappointments, heart aches or failure, speaking in tongues will amazingly lift you up. You will experience the gloom & frustration disappear like smoke and instead joy and peace will flood your sun scorched life.

Spend time praying in tongues even if it is for just 15 minutes. You will definitely see your sorrow turned into joy. Hallelujah! Amen 🙏

Tongues speaks how good God is & how wonderful His works are !

Grace for you today !
Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭2:7-8, 11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The reason that God gave the law is that man should come to the point of realization that he is a sinner & needs a Savior!

If our sinning is not in our deeds, then definitely in our hearts and minds. But the Good News is that even though we all have sinned, God still loves us. He demonstrated His love for us by giving us His Son to die for us while we were yet sinners.

Under the New Covenant , when God gave the Spirit and the gift of tongues, the emphasis is no longer on how bad man is but its on how good God is.

The grace gift of Tongues glorifies God & speaks how good God is . Also when you speak in tongues, you apply grace in every area that is a matter of concern. “The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, ….” Proverbs‬ ‭10:32‬. This is possible when you confess that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and speak in tongues. Amen 🙏

Tongues gives us rest & refreshing

Tongues gives us rest & refreshing!

14th September 2021
Grace for you today !
Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“For with stammering lips and another tongue He will speak to this people, To whom He said, “This is the rest with which You may cause the weary to rest,” And, “This is the refreshing”; Yet they would not hear.” Isaiah‬ ‭28:11-12‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

If we understand the true benefit of speaking in the heavenly language called “Tongues”, we would never cease to pray.

Tongues is a grace gift that God has given you to help you in the areas of stress, anxiety, worry, panic attacks, physical trouble, and even chronic illness and disease.
Tongues can repair our mortal bodies which perhaps even Medical Science fail to address.

If this is Grace gift, then it is not our works or holiness. When we don’t receive this gift , we simply conclude that may be there is still some sin in our lives or may be God wants me to be patient for the set time hasn’t come. Neither is right . Grace is never based on your merit or demerit. Grace is not how good am I but how good God is. Remember, Christ chose to die when we were still sinners. He didn’t consult us whether we would respond positively. He went ahead to do what is best for us whether we understand or not , whether we acknowledge or not , whether we believe or not . In this , Grace is unconditional and unmerited . It just takes on us to receive what He has achieved .

The greatest basis for us to receive undoubtedly is that we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus . Keep confessing this and you will speak in tongues. What I am writing now is tested and proven.

Amen 🙏

Praise Jesus!

Tongues My Glory

Tongues My Glory!

13th September 2021
Grace for you today !
Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad; Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭2:26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
“Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭16:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

On the day of Pentecost, the Apostle Peter was giving his apologetics on the coming of the Holy Spirit to be with us forever and also the blessing of the most precious gift in our lives – speaking in tongues. God has given us this powerful prayer language called Tongues which is our glory!
It is notably very interesting to understand how he quotes Psalm 16:9 to define “Glory” as “Tongues”. ( compare both the quotations above). “Glory” in the Old Testament meant excellence, fame , majesty , popularity and even riches.

Jesus our Lord , through his gruesome death at the Cross of Calvary, crossed out all our sins and declared us righteous forever. He rose again & entered Heaven being glorified to sit at the Right Hand of the Father & poured out the Holy Spirit to glorify us.
Speaking in tongues is the gift of the Holy Spirit given to every believer who believes that all his sins are forgiven and therefore he is the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
My beloved , this week, let us dedicate ourselves to speak in tongues as often as we can . As we speak this God given heavenly language called “Tongues”, God will ensure great glory upon our lives.
He has already arranged a glorious comeback to every setback you have encountered in the past.
Amen 🙏

Jesus died my death that I should live His Life forever!

Grace for you today
!
Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Jesus Christ became a human being in order to redeem mankind from death.
Death is the consequence of sin ( Romans 5:12).
Death is an enemy of God and is the last enemy ( 1 Corinthians 15:26)
Jesus Christ came to abolish death and this He did by choosing to die. He tasted death for everyone so that we don’t have to die.

Since He tasted death for you and me, why should we accept death ?
We shouldn’t. Death is not our portion. The blood of Jesus has destroyed death. Therefore, death has lost its dominion over mankind.

Today let’s fervently confess to reject death and embrace Jesus. His righteousness has conquered death. He is our righteousness, therefore death has no power over us.
Amen 🙏

Praise Jesus!

Jesus proudly calls us His brothers !

9th September 2021
Grace for you today
!
Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying: “I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.””
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭2:11-12‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

We find three awesome liberating truth in the above verses :
1. Jesus is not ashamed to call us His brother / sister. Those who are lower in status will always feel delighted to associate with those who are higher is status. But the higher ones may not feel comfortable to associate with those who are lower. THIS IS NOT SO WITH JESUS ! He is not ashamed of us at all, rather He loves to identify Himself with us despite our wretchedness, frailty & repeated failures.
2. Jesus delights in revealing God the Father to us. He is the First Preacher to introduce God as our Father. He has instilled in our hearts Father’s true love.
3. He is the One who leads the worship unto the Father from the midst of the church. When the Assembly of God sings and worships, Jesus Himself leads to glorify the Father. This awareness will bring us into a dynamic & powerful worship.
The Lord Jesus has to come to this earth in the human form to accomplish the above.
Hallelujah!

Praise Jesus! 🙏🏽

Jesus our brother in adversity!

Grace for you today

Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭2:11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The Eternal Word who is God Almighty stepped down to earth to redeem mankind from sin and death.

He not only identified Himself with us as a human but also identified Himself with us as our own brother. The Holy Scripture says, “A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity.” Proverbs‬ ‭17:17‬.
A true brother can be safely trusted for the times of adversity. Much more, Jesus our brother can be trusted during our trying times of life.

Many years back when I was a little boy, I hit on my head against something hard and was bleeding profusely. My older brother carried me in his arms & rushed me to the nearby hospital to treat me. When I think back now, I really wonder how he ever managed to carry me all by himself as he was only 5 years older than me . That’s a true brother!

My beloved, the Lord Jesus is our True Brother! How much He should have Loved us dearly to lay down even His very life for us! You can always trust Him! He is a friend in need & a brother in adversity! He is always willing to offer His shoulders for you to lean on and is ever ready to carry you through your most adverse times.

He wants to lift you up to be crowned with glory and honour. Now is the appointed time of God for your excellence! Amen 🙏

Praise Jesus!

Jesus- the Captain of our Salvation!

7th September 2021
Grace for you today
!
Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.” Hebrews‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The mission of Christ was not just to save us but to bring us to glory.
Glory means excellence, honor, exaltation, peace, prominence, dominance, riches, unending blessing, everlasting life..
Can you imagine this Jesus, the Lord of the whole universe, has picked you and me up from the miry clay to put us up on the most elevated & exalted life?

Yes my beloved, this Lord will surely turn around the fortunes of many this week/ month. Have you given up on yourself? Have people given up on you? The Lord Jesus will turn around things in your favor and lift you up to the highest level. Amen 🙏

You may think, “Do I deserve this elevation or excellence?” Your thought is right. You don’t deserve anything at all. But it’s all on account of His goodness & sacrifice! That’s grace ! And He deserves all our praises because it cost Him His very life to bring you & me to Glory.
Hallelujah!

Praise Jesus!🙏🏽

Christ’s Elevation My Excellence!

Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

God has called you to excellence! Excellence in every aspect of your life! It takes Christ’s glory that causes excellence.
He is the author and the finisher of our faith. We need to just focus on Him. Looking unto Jesus simply means focusing on Him continuously & steadfastly.

What exactly are we to focus on?
Christ was glorified when He sat at the right hand of the throne of God. For this joy that was set before Him He endured the cross & all the suffering.

What is that Joy ?
It is the joy to see us completely forgiven, forever righteous & to be raised us up to the highest level of excellence.
His joy of reaching my heart involved two major hurdles – Enduring the cross ( thereby crossed out all allegations and accusations) and despising the shame ( to give you and me name and fame).
If this has really sunk into your heart, then your heart will swell with gratitude and tearful thanks.

My beloved, your darling Jesus had done it all for you & as you in order to cause you excellence.
Christ’s Elevation My Excellence! Amen 🙏

Praise Jesus!

Rags To Riches !

Grace for you today

Christ’s Glory Our Excellence!

“You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands. You have put all things in subjection under his feet.” For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him.” ‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭2:7-8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

The Eternal Word, the Creator of the Universe, who created angels, became man & His name was Jesus . And He was made a little lower than the angels so that He could raise the lowliest of men to the highest level.

See the plan of God – He makes us a little lower economically, financially, physically academically ….and from there raises us to sit with Kings. The problem with us is that we don’t see the big picture of God.

Submission is one of the greatest virtues of God yet it is least understood.
Jesus led a exemplary life of submission. He was in submission to His parents, in total submission to the requirements of the law, in submission to the local government, to the Governor, to the angels and to God the Father. Therefore, God exalted Him to the highest level & has given him a name above every name so that every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is LORD.

My beloved, do not despise small beginnings (Zechariah 4:10). Just learn to submit to your parents, teachers, your boss at place of work, to your spouse at home and let the Lord set you over all things. This is Christ’s glory that leads you to excellence. Amen 🙏

Praise Jesus!
