Growing in Christ: Living a surrendered life

A Christian`s ( Christ follower) life is quite simply! This life you see that we all live is not our own, but the Spirit of God that dwells in each of us! We were bought with a price and sealed with His Holy Spirit. There is no other way to live this life, but to allow Christ to lead......." Living this life for Jesus, every step of the way"!
Galatians 4:6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the" SPIRIT of HIS Son into" your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!”
Galatians 2:20 (MSG) 19-21 What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man. Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ live…

Growing in Christ: Paul debunks the greatest debate!

Gooood morning King Jesus! Goood morning familiy and friend!


Here is my morning scriptural breakfast...

Galatians 5 (NKJV)
5 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. 2 Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. 3 And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law. 4 You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. 5 For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.

The biggest debate of the year, was debunked within this verse. "You must be circumcise to truly be saved!" Paul answer was that we are saved only by the Grace of God. through Faith!

Water Baptism or Not!
Skirt verses pants!
Pork or not!
Make up or Not…

Growing in Christ: My lips will not curse God, but trust!

Like in the book of Job, each of us have been through some tough trials in our life. From the death of love ones, sickness, miscarriages, loss of jobs, etc...

Job in the bible is seen, teaching us a lesson on how to make it through heartache , depression, pain, and suffering.... Job trust God, no matter what!

Job 1:9-12(NKJV)
9 So Satan answered the Lord and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. 11 But now, stretch out Your hand and touch all that he has, and he will surely curse You to Your face!”

12 And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person.”

So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.

Though satan attacked job's children, his possessions, and Job's health. Job understood, one thing! That God is always more then able to r…

Growing in Christ: Seeking Jesus

Been up since 4am! First thing that I did this morning, was to roll over in the bed, and grab my breakfast ! The bible .... You see, the bible tells us that," Man can NOT live by bread alone, but by every word the proceeds from the mouth of God"!
(Matthew 4:4)

I must fill myself daily in the word of God! For I am living by faith, daily in the word...

(Romans 1:17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”)

And we ALL know that Faith only comes by Hearing, and hearing the word of God! Amen!

(Romans 10:17
17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.)

So as the Sun begins to rise, and baby Jacob has already swung his feet in my face twice.( he is asleep in my bed). Ha hahahaha. I am enjoying my quiet time, getting to know Christ, even more this morning !

As the scriptures say... Psalms 63:

63 O God, You are my God;
Early will I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You
In a dry a…

Growing in Christ: Train them up!

Had a wonderful day at church! It so nice to be out and fellowshipping with other believers...

Church is a delightful opportunity to continue to raise our children in Christ! To come in unity of worship, praise, and prayers!

The bible is so clear when it says...Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it."

Train your children how to live righteously, while they are in "Your Home". Lead your children to seek out who Christ, is for themselves. Teach them about the loving God we serve!

For when they " Leave your Home", they will have been taught very well!

Don't be like Eli, and fail to restrain your children from doing Evil! For faith in the word, without works ( being a parent) is dead !

1 Samuel 3:1313 For I have told him that I will judge his house forever for the iniquity which he knows, because his sons made themselves vile, and he did not restrain them.

Have a Bless week, Love Sis Rashida:)

Growing in Christ: Justify in Christ!

Up early reading the book of Romans ! I love this verse...
Romans 8:33-34
33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

Christ died for all of our sins, past, present, and future! The bible tells us if we confess our sins He is Faithful and Just to forgive us of all unrighteousness!

So since this is true, and we know that God can not lie! Who dares accuses His elect? His people? What charges can anyone bring against you? What past mistakes, do they dare hold you to?

Are they greater than God? Of course not!
The bible( which is the living word of God) goes on to say... Who the son sets free, is free indeed!

Don't allow anyone to condemn you, because God has already justify you and I, through His blood! Jesus once told a women, who was brought to Him caught in adultery...
John 8:10-11(NKJV)
10 When Jesus had rai…

Growing in Christ: Have you read your bible, lately?

Each morning I have a cup of " Red Raspberry Leaf tea"! The nutritional benefits are amazing. Though it takes time for the tea to work, the benefits of drinking it daily, is worth the results!
Have you read your bible lately? Just like drinking my daily tea, brings forth amazing results for my physical body; daily reading of the word, brings out astonishing results, for your spiritual body!
Note these verses...
Matthew 4:4  But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.
Romans 12:2  Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]…

Growing in Christ: How can it be?

John 8:36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

That is the beauty of the cross! Once you receive Christ's blood shed at the Cross, your free!

Free from Sin!
Free frome spiritual death!
Free from bondage!
Free from works of the flesh!
Free from sickness, and disease!
From shame, guilt, and dispear!

Your free! Nothing can every bond you in Chains again! The message of the Cross is simple. God came to make you free, through the shedding of His blood, through faith in Him! So, today choose to live this life Free, to worship your Lord, and Savior, King Jesus!!

John 10:10 
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Have a bless day in Jesus , love Sis Rashida:)
