“Open The Gift”


Bishop' inspirational word”  Week 1 Open The Gift.png
Praise the Lord Beloved!!!
I hope your day is being blessed by the Lord.

Beloved, if I stopped by your house or apartment and brought you a beautifully wrapped gift and set it in your living room, that gift would be yours. It’s in your home. I gave it to you. There’s nothing you could do to make it “more” yours or “less” yours. Now, you could see that present and be very excited. You could call your friends and tell them about it. You could even write me a thank you note. But, you really can’t enjoy the gift until you open it. It wouldn’t do you any good until you put it to use.

In other words, you have to receive that gift before it affects your life.

Beloved, it’s the same way with spiritual gifts. God has a package of grace, favor, mercy, forgiveness, blessing, joy, peace and so much more available to you. But you have to receive it by faith in order for it to affect your life. You can’t earn it. You can’t pay for it. You simply have to receive it by faith.

Today my friend, if you’ve never received the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ, that’s the first gift to receive. Then once you become a child of His, you can partake of His glorious inheritance.
But first, you have to open the gift.

“To God Be the Glory!!!”

Our Body is the Holy Spirit’s Home


Bishop' inspirational word”  Week 1 Our Body is the  Holy Spirit’s Home
Every time we hear a news program that reports a story about vandalism at a church or ministry, we as believers shake our heads in disbelief. It’s hard for us to bear the thought of anyone spray-painting graffiti on sanctuary walls or damaging the stained glass windows, let alone setting fire to a place of worship. It’s a desecration!!! The churches and ministries are sacred places

Not long ago I noticed a fresh tattoo on one of my children.
Even though I have taught them about not engraving or carving their bodies.They still continue to defy what I have taught them and lean on their own understanding.

It is sad because the fact is that there are so many Christians who don’t have the same reservations about destroying the church or ministry when it comes to harming the temple of the Holy Spirit “their own bodies.” There are many like my children that insist on getting tattoos, some put junk into their stomachs, their veins, or their lungs. Others wear themselves down under a weight of stress or exhaustion.

And it’s even sadder because many of these “CHRISTIANS” justify these abuses as their right by saying: It’s my body, I can do what I want.

BUT THAT ISN’T TRUE!!!

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NLT)
19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

Beloved as believers (Christians) we are the Lord’s possession. He has created our earthen vessels to serve Him and carry out the work He’s planned for us to accomplish. God created us with a mind, body, and spirit—of the three aspects, the body is the one that allows us to interact with our environment. People cannot reach their full potential while neglecting the proper care of their bodies. What good are education, talent, and gifts if we’re carved up, too tired or sick to complete tasks well?

Here in the world, we can do nothing apart from our physical body. Since it’s the only one we’ll have in this life, we should do our best to keep it in good condition.

James 4:17 (NLT)
Remember, it is a sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.

2 Peter 2:21 (NLT)
It would be better if they had never known the way of righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life.

In other words, it’s better not to know than to know.
NOW YOU KNOW!!! There is no excuse.
