SPEAK of the Great and Good THINGS of Christ Jesus in your Life! As truly Born-again Believers we are all MOST blessed in Christ Jesus our Lord, Saviour and King! We Pray that each ONE of us as His sons and daughters, are daily testifying of the Great and Good THINGS that Jesus has DONE in our lives since we RECEIVED His Incorruptible SEED into our Hearts! Let us consider the life of virgin Mary and be encouraged by her amazing testimony! Mary said, my soul doth magnify the Lord, (47) and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. (48) For God hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. (49) For He that is mighty hath done to me Great Things; and holy is His Name. (50) And His mercy is on them that fear Him from generation to generation. (51) He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. (52) He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. (53) He hath filled the hungry with Good Things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. (54) He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy; (55) As God spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever. Luke 1:46-55 We read the Gospels and we SEE the great things that the Lord Jesus has done for His people – Amen The Holy Spirit quickened my spirit to consider all the Great and Good THINGS that Christ has GIVEN unto us as Born-Again Christians!

God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John4:23-24 Obey the Will of the Father. Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:21-23 As the children of Abba Father we have:

The WORD would encourage us to RESPOND and DECLARE the awesome TRUTH of Salvation! We were born in sin and iniquity and by nature we were children of wrath (Satan) Romans 3:23 The anger of God towards our sin, was placed upon His only Begotten Son when Christ Jesus was Crucified and forsaken at Calvary!

Isaiah 41:10 The Lord Jesus divinely saves us by GRACE and then GOD ADD us to His Body. Acts 2:47 As co-members IN His Body we are led to green pastures and still waters. Psalm 23 and Acts 2:42

Here we are fed on His Spiritual food (The Living Word) and we GROW in Grace and Maturity to become His hands and feed on earth. 2 Corinthians 5:15-21 JESUS gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the (1) perfecting of the saints, for the (2) work of the ministry, for the (3) edifying of the body of Christ: Till (4) we all come in the unity of the faith, and of (5) the knowledge of the Son of God, (6) unto a perfect man, unto (7) the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the (1) truth in love, may (2) grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the (3) whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to (4) the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the (5) edifying of itself in love. Ephesians 4:11-16 Are your speech and your deeds DAILY manifesting the EXCELLENT THINGS that the Lord has DONE!? Surely if I am DRINKING at the Well of Salvation and feasting on the Heavenly manna INSIDE of the True Body of Christ, there MUST be a Mighty MANIFESTATION of the Messiah IN my life and THROUGH my life! The ABUNDANT Life of John 10:10 – Amen How could I ever keep quiet of the Goodness and Grace of the Lord Jesus that SAVED me! How could I not Shine, Share and Serve other souls with the Love and Grace of Christ? Surely my life must MANIFEST the INDWELLING Spirit of Christ! 2 Corinthians 4:10-11 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:5-12 The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-25 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:17-20 I Pray that we (I) will Sing unto the LORD and DECLARE the EXCELLENT THINGS that Jesus has DONE and daily still DOING in my saved Life!This must be made KNOWN in all the earth! We are born again believers and member’s one of another in the Body of Christ – Hallelujah! You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of JESUS who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10

GOD hath put all things under His feet, and gave CHRIST to be the head over all things to the church. Ephesians 1:22 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Ephesians 5:23 JESUS is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things JESUS might have the pre-eminence. Colossians 1:18 We are the Body of Christ on earth and the Lord Jesus is IN the midst of us! The mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: Whereunto I also labour, striving according to His working, which worketh in me mightily. Colossians 1:26-29 I Pray that we (I) will be totally Saturated in Christ Jesus, fully Consecrated to Christ ALONE; completely Surrendered to His Word; daily OBEDIENT to DOING His Will and Walking in His Way!
