Will You Worship Him In The Storm

February 27, 2013

In Job 1, Satan is looking for someone to devour and the Lord presents him with Job. Job was a perfect and upright man, even one who shunned or avoided evil. However, Satan was convinced that the only reason Job served God was because God protected and shielded him from evil. Thus, God allowed Satan to test and afflict Job…to the degree that all he had from his Children, to his wealth and even his health was taken from him. But in (Job 1:20) it says “Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped.”

What a man of God! Through all that he went through, through all that he had lost, even through the frustration of his wife telling him to curse God and die, Job worshipped God in the midst of great trouble and affliction. However, though Job’s story has been told, ours has yet to be written, and the fact is will we who call ourselves Christians worship God in the midst of the storm and remain who he has called us to be? I guess only time in the storm will reveal your true worship.

The Role Of A Godly Wife-3

February 19, 2013

The Third characteristic of a Godly wife is: a beautiful heart. Peter said that if a wife was going to win her husband it won’t be the outward beauty that grabs his attention because that type of beauty is only temporary. However, Peter said win him with “the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God a great price.”

Thus, wives if you plan to win your husband with the hidden man of the heart, allow your heart to be led by God. Let it be led by God in how you speak to him, in how you love him, in how you carry yourself in and out of his presence, in how you make love to him. Let him know that you love him whether he is saved or not; that you won’t try to undermine his authority by trying to operate as the head of the home when God called him to be the head. Let him know that you have his best interest at heart, and through it all, don’t forget to pray for him because as the head he truly needs your prayers.

The Role Of A Godly Wife-2

February 14, 2013

The second characteristic of A Godly wife according to (1Peter 3:1-2) is she must be one of Godly behavior. She must know how to carry herself. She must know how to love, respect and treat her husband, whether he is saved or not; because the Apostle Paul said that a unbelieving husband who desires to stay with his wife is sanctified by a believing wife. In other words, sanctification (holiness or being set apart for God) can birth itself in a husband whose wife understands how to remain Godly in marriage regardless of how good or bad the marriage is. Thus, a wife can put her unsaved husband in an atmosphere where he can hear from God if she would only be who she is suppose to be in Christ Jesus. Many husbands have gotten saved or have drawn nearer to Christ because of the holiness of God they witnessed in their wives. Wives remain Godly, no matter what, because you never know when a change is going to come upon your spouse and your house.

The Role of A Godly Wife-1

February 12, 2013

First Peter 3:1-12 shares with us the behaviors of husbands and wives, however for the sake of this series I will talk about the role of a Godly wife. According to (1.Pt 3:1) the first role of a Godly wife is the role of Submission: Peter opens up by saying “Likewise ye wives, be in subjection to your own husband”. In the culture we live in today, not many women want to talk about submission but if you are a wife, it simply means to obey or come under the authority of. Submission is a key component to a healthy marriage. Submission is not surrender, withdrawal or apathy, biblical submission demonstrates your love for your husband, it glorifies God and it brings a power into the marriage and the home that you wouldn’t have otherwise. In essence, to submit to your own husband is to submit unto the Lord and anytime you obey God there is a blessing at the end of your obedience.

A Forgiving God

February 7, 2013

The God whom we serve is a good God, a forgiving God and a merciful God. And even though He is all of that many people still make the decision not to serve him. We know He is all of that because (Psalm 86:5) says “For thou Lord art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.” Thus, God is not like man in that if you do something to man or cross man in a way that displeases him, he tends to hold that against you for years, if not forever. Man doesn’t understand that to live his life in un-forgiveness is really binding him up instead of the one who he believes created the offence. However, God is ready to forgive those who call upon him; He is ready to cast our wrong doing into the sea of forgetfulness when we come to him with a repentant heart. The question for the believer is: Are we prepared to forgive at the level that God requires us too?

Those That Know Him, Obey Him

February 5, 2013

And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments (1 John 2:3).

This particular text of scripture is clear… those who confess to be Christians intentionally obey God. This is the dividing line for those who say I serve Him and those who don’t. You see in order to be a Christian and walk in the power of God it’s not about how well we sing or how well our preaching sounds, or even how well we can speak in tongues. It’s really about how well we obey and the motives of our heart when we do obey. The Apostle John makes it clear when he says “And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments” (1 John 2:3).
So the question is:can you say that you know him? If your level of obedience is not something you have committed to on a regular and consistent basis with God, then the scripture says you don’t know Jesus, and he certainly doesn’t know you.

God Bless You
