Don’t abdicate your right to reign in life

”For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:17 The secret of reigning in life lies with receiving everything that Jesus has accomplished for us on the […]

You have to receive, not achieve

As Christians we are often driven to “do, do, do”, forgetting that Christianity is actually about “done, done, done”. God’s ways are contrary to man’s ways. Man thinks that for God to bless him he needs to deserve, earn and merit God’s favour and blessings by his own efforts.  Man thinks that God’s blessings are […]

We are sons and heirs through salvation

He is not embarrassed about me. He is not ashamed to call me the brother of His Son. His own Spirit bears witness with my spirit that I am a child of God. I am no longer a slave. How wonderful is that?  “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have […]

Enter His rest

So, are you in God’s rest? If you are more persuaded by your circumstances than God’s ability to work out what He has promised – then you are probably not! You need to allow the integrity of God’s Word to produce persuasion in your heart. In the New Testament, entering into God’s rest – is […]

This rightly means you have no merit in your own performance, and God engages you on the basis of  you having no merit. But grace is more than unmerited […]

God gets poetic about you!

My life is not the product of my religious efforts to be more holy, to be more happy or to be more religious. But my life and my testimony is the product of His workmanship. God has placed His stamp of approval upon His workmanship. “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good […]

Praise – the fruit of our faith

Ephesians 1:6: “This is to the praise of his glorious grace.” Praise isn’t some religious routine you go through from Sunday to Sunday. Praise is the fruit of our faith, which now knows and sees Christ and stands in awe of His glorious grace which He gave freely. Praise is how we show our appreciation […]

Pay attention!

Hebrews 2:1: “Pay the closest attention, take heed in what you have heard.” Do you know who you really are? Do you know what God says about you? You had better pay the closest attention. The name of the game of life on earth is not mere survival, but life and abundance. God has made […]
