The Christian life

This came to me one morning in my prayer time. Our role is to be living witnesses for Christ, our lives should shine. We should share Him boldly but in love. Let God's love rule our lives. We need to press in to Him, his word, and pray in faith for all things and people as the Spirit leads. Let God do the changing in others but let’s be open for him to change us; humble and teachable. Let us think, speak and act as He directs. Let us be emptied of self but filled with Him, vessels fit for the masters service, living sacrifices. Amen. 

What are you sowing today?


Living in Saskatchewan, with our vast farmlands, we are all familiar with sowing and reaping. But do we realize that this principle is throughout the bible and affects every aspect of our lives? “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him” (Gen 26:12; KJV). That’s a good crop!

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal, it shall be measured to you again" (Luke 6:38; KJV).

It’s Interesting that how we give affects how we receive.

In Galatians 6:7, we read that God is not deceived, we reap what we sow. Sowing and reaping affect every aspect of our lives not just farming and financial or material giving. Job lamented that: “they that plough iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same (Job 4:8; KJV). Hosea observed that those who have: “sown the wind”; “reap the whirlwind” (Hos 8:7; KJV). In Proverbs 18:24, we read that to have a friend we must be a friend. We also know that our words can reap a harvest of good or evil (Prov 15:1).

Have you noticed that everything reproduces after its own kind? I think a pig would be surprised if it produced chickens. Let’s meditate on our giving and receiving; sowing and reaping today. Let’s do a checkup today; we need to be reminded that how we give, in every aspect of our lives determines what we will receive, good or evil. Is that an amen or an ouch?

Take the limits off of God.

Matthew 6:25-34, is a wonderful exhortation for us not to worry about our needs. God says look at the beauty and magnificence of my creation; the wild flowers that surround us in the countryside and the birds that swoop through the sky, see how I created them and care for them. If God can do that how much more will he care for us. God says, you focus on me and being like me and pleasing me and I will take care of the provision.

God is not short on supplies for our provision. Everything on this earth belongs to God. “For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills” (Ps 50:10; KJV). “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts” (Hag 2:8; KJV).

I like his instruction to us to leave the worry with him. In 1 Peter 5:6-7 (KJV), we are told to: “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you”. Now this does not tell us to sit idly by and wait for God to provide; no, we are to work with our hands to provide our needs. In the apostle Paul’s second letter to the Thessalonians, he wrote: “For even when we were with you, we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat” (2 Thess 3:10; KJV). But, if we trust God and do our part we don’t need to worry, we need to trust God that everything will be taken care of; ends will more than meet. Trust God, take the limits off of him; he will provide.

God has you covered

We are spiritual beings, living in bodies and having souls, which are our minds, wills and emotions (1 Thess 5:23). In 1 Peter 1, the apostle Peter talks about salvation. Salvation means to be spiritually reborn, born again or saved (John 3:3-8). We are saved from the spiritual death (Rom 6:23) that resulted from our sinful life prior to us becoming Christians. We are spiritually saved or born again by repenting of sin and asking Jesus into our life as Lord and Savior (Acts 3:19; Rom 10:9-10). Salvation encompasses forgiveness, restoration, prosperity, protection, safety, healing, preservation, joy, eternal life and so much more. This is all available to us when we are saved and is referred to in 1 Peter 1:3.

However, 1 Peter 1:4-5, 9, also refer to the promise of the completion of our salvation, or final salvation as we meet our Lord and savior in heaven at the end of our life on this earth. This is the continuation in heaven of our eternal life, which started when we asked Christ into our lives here on this earth.

The apostle Peter also writes about how God by his power (Greek word dunamis, from which we get the English word, dynamite) keeps us in this present life (v 5). He works in us to grow and change us to be more like him (Phil 1:6) and to protect us and keep us for our final reward of eternal life in heaven (Ps 91:17a). Wow, what an awesome journey.

God has us covered; all we have to do is submit (James 4:7-8,10) and cooperate with him. How do we cooperate as Christians? Start with prayer and immersing yourself in the Bible.

Victory in Christ

The apostle Paul wrote that: “Christ liveth in me” (Gal 2:20). Christ lives in us as well (Rom 8:10), and we are in him (Rom 8:1). Jesus is the vine and we are branches of that vine (John 15:5). We have been grafted in to the vine. Spiritually this means that we are in Christ. As the life of the vine flows out to its branches, so the life of Jesus, the Holy Spirit, lives in us and flows from us.

In the book of Colossians, we are told that our heavenly Father has: “delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear son” (Col 1:13; KJV). This is God’s spiritual kingdom of light; we are connected to Jesus and live in his sphere of influence.

Satan was defeated through Christ’s victory at the cross and he (satan) was stripped of all power and authority in our lives as Christians (Col 2:15).

In Christ, God sees us as righteous (1 Cor 1:30), his sons and daughters (Gal 3:26), and: “more than conquerors” (Rom 8:37; KJV). “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil 4:13; KJV).

This is who we are but we need to walk in it. This requires that we study the word and find out who we are in Christ; build up our faith so we can stand up to satan when he comes to question our new life in Christ. Satan is defeated but he will try to question your relationship with God using people and by sending you negative thoughts. You must be convinced of who you are so you can stand firm in your victory in Jesus.
