The Name of Jesus is Very Powerful

Today, let us consider Acts 3:1-11.  Peter and John were going to the temple at the time of prayer.  And at the same time, a man crippled from birth was being taken to the temple gate called beautiful where he normally begged.  When he saw Peter and John, he fixed his attention on them expecting something but he got more than he expected- i.e. healing in the name of Jesus.

The following lessons can be deduced from the account above.

1.  We should pray regularly to God.  Peter and John made it a habit to pray regularly to God.  Remember that prayer is an effective tool in the hands of Christians and with it; hopeless situations can be turned around for good.  Many notable Christians were/are successful in life because they made/make it a habit to pray to God regularly.  Ben Carson for example, is a successful African American Neurosurgeon and one of the most excellent in the field globally.  When asked, he attributed his success story to his mother’s positive influence on him, hard work and most importantly, the power of prayer.  If you want to make it to the top, then make it a habit to pray to God regularly (James 5:16b).

2.  We must be focussed.  The man was focussed.  He did not allow anything or anybody to distract his attention from Peter and John.  If you want any spectacular miracle from God, then you must be prepared to focus your attention on Him at all times.  Furthermore, you must not entertain any doubt in your mind otherwise; you will not receive anything substantial from Him (James 1:6-8).

3.  The name of Jesus is very powerful.  Peter and John had no silver or gold but they had the name of Jesus which is a very powerful tool to work with.  With boldness, Peter commanded the man to walk in the name of Jesus and he did.  You too can use His name to transform your life, to stay afloat, heal the sick, set the captives free, give hope to the hopeless etc (Mark 16:17-18).  Let me assure you here that you don’t really need any special faith before using this powerful name; all you need is boldness.  Therefore, go ahead and use right now!

4.  We must exercise our faith.  The man exercised his faith by leaping, standing and walking into the temple.  If you desire a miracle today, then be prepared to exercise your faith in God.  Remember that without faith, it is impossible to please him (Hebrew 11:6) and that faith without action is dead (James 2:17).  Use the name of Jesus today and exercise your faith by doing those things which you have not been able to do hitherto and you will experience a life changing outcome.

5.  We must always praise God.  The man went into the temple walking and praising God.  Likewise you too should make it a habit to praise Him.  You should also remember to thank Him always because it is His will that we should do so (1 Thessalonians 5:18).  Do you know that by praising God, you are indirectly asking Him to come closer to you (Psalms 22:3)? And do you know that in a situation like this; miracles cannot be far from you?

6.  We must keep the company of the children of God.  This is made very plain in Hebrews 10:25.  As individuals, our capacity is very limited but if we work in partnership with other children of God, we can move mountains.  For example, as individuals, we may not be able to defeat more than one of our enemies at a time.  But if only five of us can collaborate closely, then we should be able to chase at least a hundred of them to their early grave without stress.  Now imagine what a hundred of us can achieve if we team up! Definitely ten thousand of our enemies will be exterminated (Leviticus 26:8).  The man appreciated the importance of collaborating with the children of God hence; he did not forsake their gathering.  You too must emulate him.  Don’t allow Satan to isolate you from the body of Christ!

Friends put all these lessons into practice as from today and very soon; you will be on your way to big time success. 

Jesus is Lord!

Question and Answer Series (Part 1)

Of late, I have been studying some questions often asked by people (including Christians) about God and the Christian faith.  And today, we shall commence a staggered Question and Answer series where some of them will be considered.  Let me therefore welcome you to part one (1) of the series.  May you be blessed as you read it in Jesus name.  Amen.

1.  Is God still relevant in today’s world?

Yes He is!  Now, let us look at it from this angle.  Jesus is the custodian of all authority in heaven and on earth (Mathew 28:18).  In John 15:5, He made it clear that we can do nothing without Him and this is true.  Hence, we can conclude that Jesus is relevant to us.  Meanwhile, this same Jesus made it abundantly clear in John 5:19 that He cannot do anything outside what He sees God doing.  That means God is relevant to Him.  Therefore, if Jesus is relevant to us, and God is relevant to Him, then God must be relevant to us in today’s world.

2.  Why can’t He banish hardship?

Since Satan is residing in this world, hardship cannot be banished.  As a matter of fact, it will surely come from time to time.  Though hardship is capable of making our lives very complicated, it also has the advantage of preparing us for victory over life’s numerous battles.  However, we have nothing to worry about since Jesus Christ is in full control (John 16:33).

Now let us consider the modus operandi of earthly Soldiers.  They regularly undergo intense training which may bring about a measure of hardship.  This is not to punish them, but to ensure that they are combat ready and safe.  As children of God we are also Soldiers but this time around, we are Soldiers of Christ and if we want to live long and in safety, then we must be prepared to undergo rigorous training; the resultant hardship not withstanding.  This is very important because our situation is more precarious than that of our earthly counterparts.  Whilst their enemies are visible, ours are not.  Ours are also very fierce and ruinous in nature (Ephesians 6:12).  However, we are not without adequate protection.  God has placed a huge cache of weapons at our disposal which we can utilize to protect ourselves and to destroy our enemies.  These weapons are utterly spiritual, extraordinarily precise and exceptionally potent (2 Corinthians 10:4-5) but we must be properly trained to use them effectively.  We can only attain the required level of effectiveness by undergoing a continuous and painstaking training program which may involve a variable degree of hardship.  The program involves sessions of fasting and prayers (Matthew 17:21).  It also involves studying the words of God and applying them appropriately.  Please note that the words of God constitutes a very important part of our spiritual arsenal (Hebrews 4:12) therefore, you must be conversant with them (Joshua 1:8).    And whenever you encounter any hardship, find an appropriate word of God and unleash it against the situation and you can be sure of victory.  In the end, you will emerge stronger, wiser, more reformed and better informed and in life hereafter, you will receive a crown of life (Revelation 2:10). 

Friend, you can now see that God is still very relevant in today’s world.  It is also clear that it is not in our best interest for him to banish hardship on earth.  Let us therefore face it with vigour and with God being on our side, we will triumph in Jesus name.  Amen.

Jesus is Lord!

GO OVER TO THE OTHER SIDE!

In Luke Chapter 8, we can see that Jesus Christ and His disciples had a very busy day. So, at a point, He addressed them, saying: “let us GO over TO THE OTHER SIDE of the lake’’ (Luke 8: 22), ostensibly to catch some rest from the huge crowd that followed them everywhere.

Before I continue any further, I will like to spend a little time on the statement ‘GO OVER TO THE OTHER SIDE’, which is central to what Jesus Christ said in Luke 8: 22. This will enable us to understand the import of this piece better.

The statement can mean different things to different people at different times. But for the purpose of this write up, I will like us to pitch my tent with the school of thought that sees it as an instruction to shift position. That is, an instruction to move from a current position to a new one. The said position can be a street, a town, a county, a country, a school, a career, a relationship, a religion, a church, an allegiance, etc. And there are several reasons why people change their position now and again. For example, to improve their capabilities, status, earning power, or to seek better education, better life, fun, rest, security, and justice.

A lot of people also change their position (i.e. ‘GO OVER TO THE OTHER SIDE’), to align with God through Jesus Christ; having been with the Devil with dire consequences. Such people do often enjoy eye-popping benefits in the end (Luke 18:29). Some of the benefits include:

1. Peace

Peace, is one of the foremost benefits that comes with consenting to the advice, ‘Go Over to the Other Side’, where Jesus reigns.

In Luke 8:22-24, Jesus and His disciples launched out in a boat, with the aim of crossing over to the other side of the lake, apparently to rest. After a while, Jesus fell asleep, and a windstorm, which threatened their lives, came down forcefully on the lake. And the disciples became sore afraid, and they woke Jesus Christ up from His sleep lest they perished. Then, He arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water, and they ceased. There was a great calm (peace) all around afterwards!

This same Jesus, who happens to be the Prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6), is alive and willing to rebuke all the storms and troubles in your life today and then, give you peace instead (John 14:27). However, you have to ask Him in prayer to help you first of all, and you can be rest assured that He will not ignore you (John 6:37). Please do not waste time; make the move, right now, in Jesus name. Amen.

2. Provision

In John 2:1-11, a wise couple invited Jesus Christ to their wedding ceremony. Soon, they ran out of wine and shame was looming. But Jesus came to their rescue by providing them with choice wine, which was subsequently served, and the guests were stunned, but satisfied at the end of the day. In a nutshell, Jesus turned the couple’s shame, to fame that day.

Perhaps you lack certain life changing provisions at this moment in time, and it seems there is no relief in sight, and shame is looming ahead; please ‘Go Over to the Other Side’, where Jesus is in charge. He is well suited to provide all that you need to improve your life, family, health, business, finance, education, ministry, etc. (Philippians 4:19). Not only that, He will turn what is meant for your shame, into what will earn you outstanding fame in Jesus name. Amen.

3. Protection

In John 8:1-11, a woman was caught in the act of adultery and led to Jesus Christ for condemnation and execution by stoning to death. Though, their intention was to test Jesus, but His support, even if it was feeble, would have been enough to end her life. But trust Jesus, He did not condemn her, instead He offered her robust Protection via His principled stand. He challenged them saying: “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first’’ (John 8:7). Since none of them was clean, they quietly left the scene one after the other. Not only that, Jesus later sent her away with a soothing advice that she should sin no more (John 8:11).

This same Jesus is prepared to protect you (John 10:27-28), no matter how odious your past may be. So, ‘Go Over to the Other Side’ where He reigns today, and you will be happy you did, in Jesus name. Amen.

4. Promotion

In Matthew 4:18-22, Jesus Christ invited Peter and Andrew to join His ministry, and they agreed. And for this reason, they earned instant promotion from being ordinary fishermen, to being fishers of men; a position that made them highly visible, superbly famous, and greatly revered up till now. If not for their lavish promotion, I believe they would have spent the rest of their lives ordinarily, and end up unsung and unmourn like their contemporaries.

You too can acquire a great promotion from God (Psalm 75:6-7), which will astound the whole world, and make you relevant even after you might have departed the world to be with God. But you can only acquire it through Jesus Christ (John 14:6). That is why you have got to ‘Go Over to the Other Side’ where He is waiting for you. Please don’t let this huge opportunity elude you; grab it right now, in Jesus name. Amen.

5. Salvation

Salvation is the chief of all the benefits accruable from consenting to the advice, ‘Go Over to the Other Side’, where Jesus Christ is the boss.

Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10) was a chief tax collector hence, a big time sinner. One day, he learnt that Jesus would pass through Jericho, and he sought to see Him. However, the task of doing so was too much for him owing to his short stature. So, he helped himself by climbing up into a sycamore tree. As Jesus was passing by, He looked up, saw Zacchaeus, and commanded him to come down. Immediately, he complied, and Jesus received Him joyfully. It was at this point, that some people rose up against Zacchaeus, and accused Jesus Christ of socializing with a sinner. But trust Him, He ignored their accusations, stayed in Zacchaeus’ house, and gave him salvation, which is the passport to heaven, the kingdom of God (John 3:3).

You too need salvation i.e., you need to become born again, to attain the kingdom of God, and Jesus is ready to help you, if you ‘Go Over to the Other Side’, where He reigns.

So, how can I become born again, you may wish to ask at this point in time? Well, very simple! Confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. If you do these, then it is believe you have been saved (Romans 10:9), and that you are born again. It is after you might have settled all issues concerning your salvation, that you can become a member of the kingdom of God, and reap exceptional benefits like Peace, Protection, Provision, Promotion, and Salvation among others. May you never lose out on any of them, and may your joy be full now and forever, in Jesus name. Amen.

Let’s Take Stock

Looking through year 2005, it is evident that our world experienced many earth shaking events which led to the loss of several thousands of lives.  These events also cost more people their past, present and future.  We have every reason to be happy that we are alive today but we should remember that it is by God’s special mercies that we were not consumed (Lamentations 3:22).  As we give thanks to God Almighty during this special season, and as we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ (we ought to do this in a very big way), let us remember those who started the year with us but are no longer alive.  Especially, let us remember to pray for and reach out to their parents, spouses, children, relatives and other people they left behind.  Let us remember the underprivileged amongst us too.  They obviously need us more than ever before.

Furthermore, let us utilize this unique period to prepare for year 2006.  This time last year, I wrote and I quote ”Let it not be said of you that you prepared to fail because you failed to prepare”.  This statement is still as golden as it was then therefore; let us skew all our resources towards preparing for success in year 2006.  Let us set aside quality time to fast, pray and to commit everything about us into God’s able hands.  If we do this, he will take absolute control of our lives (Proverbs 3:6).

Now this is very important!  Let us create time to appraise our current position in the Lord.  In 1 Corinthians 10:12, Apostle Paul said ”let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall”.  Since standing is just a step from falling, we shouldn’t assume that all is well with us without first checking our lives thoroughly. Let’s take stock and let’s be mindful of the need to be vigilant.  If we want to excel in 2006, then it will be helpful to consider the following tips.  We should:

1.  Involve Jesus Christ in all our activities.  We should also make Him our personal Lord and Saviour.  If you have done this before now-brilliant otherwise, do so at this instant because tomorrow may be too late.  From John 14:6, it is clear that Jesus is the only way that worth following and the only truth that can stand us out.  He is also the only person that is capable of putting life back into those areas of our lives that may have been functioning sub optimally hitherto.

2.  Allow the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives.  Remember that he is in charge in the current dispensation and he has an extraordinary capacity to teach us all things and to bring them to our remembrance (John 14:26).  Let us therefore align with him so that he can put us on the path of success.

3.  Not be far away from the Holy Bible.  This amazing book has been programmed to give us incredible success in life (Joshua 1:8) and it is one of the major ways by which God will reach out to us in year 2006.

4.  Make it a point of duty to pray without ceasing (1Thessalonians 5:17).  This is an important chore and it is very close to God’s heart.  It is also through it that we can convey our heart felt concerns to him.  If you want a first-rate report in 2006, then pray to God!

5.  Make sure that we give thanks to God always-it is his will that we should do this (1Thessalonians 5:18).  Whilst thanking him, we should not forget to praise him too.  And the moment we start doing these, he will shift his base to our side (Psalms 22:3) then signs and wonders will take place.

Friend, if you want to crack year 2006 without being cracked then, get cracking with the tips above.  May the good Lord help you as you labour to attain your best in him and may his joy be your strength throughout this season and beyond in Jesus name.  Amen.

Finally, let me use this opportunity to wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS in advance.  God bless you real good.

Jesus is Lord!

Launch Out Into The Deep

In Luke 5:1-11, the bible says Simon and his friends fished all night, and caught nothing!  Obviously, they must have been very frustrated that day, but, as they were washing their nets preparing to go home, Jesus approached them and requested for the use of Simon’s boat, and he agreed.  And in appreciation, Jesus asked him to lunch out into the deep for a catch.  Reluctantly, he agreed, and he and his colleagues then caught loads and loads fishes, which they could not handle on their own.  So, they requested for outside help, still they could not cope!  This startling incidence prompted Simon to ask Jesus to depart from him but, He refused because once He has made up His mind to bless someone, nobody can stop Him.

There are many points in the account above; Let us now consider some of them.

1.  Frustrating moments may crop up now and again.

Frustrating moments may crop up now and again in your business or job, health, education, finance, relationship, spiritual life, etc. Simon and his friends were expert fishermen, but that night, frustrating moment cropped up in their business. Perhaps you were doing very well in certain area of your life before, but the story has changed lately; please don’t worry as such is common. Remember that you are not alone; God is around the corner to help you out (Psalms 46:1).

2.  You may have to give God your all, to get His all.

Simon’s only tangible possession in life was his boat, but he gave it to Jesus Christ unconditionally. That is, he gave Jesus his all! And in appreciation, Jesus gave him His all (loads and loads of fishes) as well. You too can give your all vis-à-vis money, time, energy, skill, influence etc., to God today, and He’ll give you His all too (Luke 6:38).

3.  God will remember you at some point.

It wasn’t immediately after Simon released his boat to Jesus Christ that He remembered him.  No!  He remembered him only after He had finished speaking!  Perhaps you have given God what seems to be your all today, but it seems a commensurate reward is yet to come, don’t worry;  just tarry on, He will reward you at the most auspicious time (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

4.  You must be prepared to obey God when He remembers you.

When Jesus remembered Simon and his friends, He told them to launch out into the deep for a catch, and they obeyed him. Today, is He telling you to start a Ministry, or dabble into a particular trade? Is He telling you to change your present job? Is He telling you to attempt a particular examination, or to just relax for the time being? Please obey whatever He asks you to do.

5.  Amazing result awaits you if you obey God.

Simon and his friends obeyed Jesus and launched out into the deep and their destiny changed immediately. They caught so much fish such that they had to call for outside help. As if that was not enough, Jesus also made them Fishers of Men; prominent ambassadors of the Kingdom of God. Amazing results awaits you too, if you obey God today, through Jesus Christ (Isaiah 1:19).

Today, do not hesitate to launch out into the deep; Jesus is waiting to surprise you!

Jesus is Lord!

Let Thy Kingdom Come

The Lord’s Prayer (Mathew 6:9-13) is a very vital part of the bible, as it shows the world the best way to approach the concept of prayer. And as expected, it is popular among Christians, and many of us learnt it by heart when we were young. Its second verse (verse 10) will form the pivot of this write up, and it says:

“Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.

For us to appreciate above passage very well, I suggest that we should closely look around the word KINGDOM first. It is a compound word made up of two other words; KING and DOMAIN fused together.

A King by definition is someone who rules over a country and a people. His position is usually hereditary, and he reigns for as long as he lives. His domain on the other hand, is his territory, and in it, his words carry maximum weight. It is also a reflection of his influence and affluence. If you invite a King to your house for example, he will come down with his entire domain, because wherever he goes, his domain goes. And when he arrives, power will manifest, and events will take place in quick succession.

God is the King in the domain called Heaven. There, He has absolute power (Psalm 62:11), and reigns forever (Isaiah 26:4). And like many earthly kings, God can be invited by individuals, communities, nations, etc. for one reason or the other. But, He can only heed their invitation through Jesus Christ (John 14:6). For example, if you invite Him into an area of your life, He will come with His entire domain, and in a situation like that, power must exchange hands, and stunning results must follow.

Now, let us look at some of the results that follow when God brings His Kingdom into a person’s life, or into a particular place.

1. Great Joy

In Acts 8:4-8, Phillip preached Jesus to the people of Samaria, and they accepted him warmly, and took to all he said. Their action no doubt, was like asking God to bring His Kingdom into their land, and He did with stunning miracles taking place. Subsequently, there was great joy all over the land.

In the same vein, if your life is currently devoid of joy, please ask God to bring His Kingdom into it. He will, and stunning miracles coupled with great joy will follow, in Jesus name. Amen.

2. Great Calm

In Mark 4:35-41, Jesus Christ and His disciples were in a boat on the sea. A great storm, which threatened their existence, soon began. Meanwhile, Jesus was fast asleep, and they had to wake Him up. Without a shred of doubt, their action can be interpreted as asking God to bring His Kingdom into their situation through Jesus Christ. And immediately, He arose and rebuked the storm, and there was a great calm afterwards.

Is your life or the life of someone close to you being threatened by a raging ‘storm’ lately? Or is it your ministry, business, education, health, finances, etc. that is being threatened? If your answer is yes, then ask God to bring His Kingdom into the picture right now. He will oblige you, and there will be great calm before long, in Jesus name. Amen.

3. Deliverance

In Luke 9:37-42, a wise father brought his son who had epilepsy to Jesus for deliverance. His action, as we can see, is akin to asking God to bring His Kingdom into his son’s life through Jesus Christ. Without wasting time, Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit tormenting the boy, and healed (delivered) him.

Maybe you are presently being tormented by an affliction (physical, mental, spiritual, professional, financial, etc.) which you cannot deal with by yourself, then invite God to bring His Kingdom into the situation without delay. I am positive that He will answer and deliver you, and your life will never be the same again, in Jesus name. Amen.

4. Life

In John 11:1-44, Jesus brought Lazarus back to life, having been dead for four days. Please recall that it was Mary and her sister Martha, which sent words to Jesus Christ concerning Lazarus to start with. So, in some way, we can safely conclude that their action is comparable to asking God, through Jesus Christ, to bring His Kingdom into Lazarus’ dead body, and He did, and Lazarus bounced back to life.

Above scenario can be repeated again these days, given that Jesus is still as potent as He was in the past (Hebrews 13:8). Therefore, if any of your circumstances is proving too taxing for you nowadays, please ask God to bring His Kingdom into it.  He will answer you (Matthew 7:7), and it will jump back to life, in Jesus name. Amen.

5. Salvation

Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10), a Chief Tax Collector, hence a big time crook, knew that Jesus Christ was coming to their territory, and like other people, he wanted to see Him at all cost. No doubt, he wanted God to bring His Kingdom into his evil life; perhaps he could have a new one through Jesus Christ (salvation). So, he pressed on with the multitude in search of Jesus, but he was hampered by his short stature, and for that reason, he climbed a sycamore tree to have a better view of Him. When Jesus got to the tree, He looked up, and asked him (Zacchaeus) to come down. He later followed him home, and gave him salvation.

Friend, God can also bring His Kingdom into your life or situation today if you wish, but, you must be ready to follow the right protocol first. You must be ready to give your life to Jesus so that He can be your personal Lord and savior. That is, you must be born again (if you are not yet)! When this step is over then, you can confidently ask Him to bring His Kingdom into your life or into your situation; He will not snub you (John 6:37). Subsequently, you will have great joy, great calm, deliverance, new life etc. as your benefits, in Jesus name. Amen.

Your Life Changer May Be In the Desert

In Luke 9:10-17, the Apostles had just returned from a preaching tour, and as they were recounting their experiences to Jesus Christ, loads of people kept coming to them, such that they had no time to themselves. And being mindful of their plight, Jesus led them to a desert place for respite. Still, the people kept on coming! In the end, He addressed and fed 5000 of them (excluding women and children) with five loaves and two fishes.

Deserts as we know are huge expanse of barren lands, where most things, especially food and water are considerably scarce. They usually have extremes of weather conditions i.e. very hot during the day and very cold at night. And being hostile by nature, very few species of plants and animals does very well in them. What’s more, security of lives and properties is a major problem in desert places.

Above and many other issues, make survival in desert places a big deal. However, not everything about them is bad, because buried deep in their bowels, are huge deposits of mineral resources e.g. Oil and Gas, Gold, Precious Stones, Uranium, Copper, Nitrate, Lithium, Bromine, Iodine, Calcium, etc. I label these mineral resources ‘Life changers’ because, a lot of them have been used in the past to change deserts’ life into paradise on earth.

What we can liken to ‘Deserts or Desert situations’ are also common in people’s lives. Usually, they are very harsh, and make people’s lives very difficult. A few examples are wars, natural disasters, debt, joblessness, illness, poverty, starvation, oppressive institutions/leaders, and silence from God.

If any of them is affecting you at the moment, then you need a ‘Life changer’ to help you overcome it. But, you have to locate it first! The disciples located the ‘Life changers’ within their reach (five loaves and two fishes) first, before they handed them over to Jesus Christ for increase, and use to eliminate the peoples’ most pressing ‘desert situation’ at that time; i.e. hunger.

Friend, let me congratulate you here, if you have no ‘desert situation’ in your life at the moment. Your type is extremely rare these days! But, if you have any troubling you , then you need to rise up and get rid of it strongly with whatever ‘Life changer(s)’ at your disposal. Thank God that He deposited a lot of them in us right from the beginning, and if we use them wisely, they will turn our heart-breaking experiences into delight.

So what are life changers, you may wish to ask at this point? Well, they are things that we can use to turn our heart-breaking experiences into delight. Usually, they are things that we have, which others do not have; things that we do with relative ease; things that stands us out in the society; our unique characteristics.

Are you a good writer, an eloquent speaker, a charming personality, a crowd puller, an organiser of resources, a brilliant folk, etc.? Are you good looking, healthy, strong, well educated, well connected, rich, humble, kind, eager to work for God, etc.? If any of above describes you, then it could be your ‘Life changer’. The onus is now on you, to prayerfully hand it over to God through Jesus Christ. After that, He will increase it, and use it to get rid of your ‘desert situation(s)’.

Friend, let me conclude this piece by telling you that the greatest ‘Life changer’ available to humanity for the purpose of combating ‘desert situations’ is the name of Jesus Christ (John 16:23-24). But, it can only work for you if you are born again, or better still, if you have accepted Jesus Christ into your life as your personal Lord and Saviour. If you have already, I say congratulations! But if you haven’t, please work towards becoming born again without delay. It is after this has been done with, that you can boldly use the unfailing name of Jesus Christ to achieve mind-blowing results (Mark 16:17-18).

Jesus is Lord!
