Christian Events This Week

It is a new week and we are stepping into it gracefully with the Lord as our shield, our guide, our only solution.

The message yesterday was clear and simple on “You are born to be a blessing” drawn from 1 Peter 3:9.
It is a divine appointment to be blessed and you must be a blessing to others. You cannot be a blessing to others if you are not blessed.
We are called into different blessings seen in Ephesians 4: 11 and everyone is called to be a blessing.Don’t let the devil fool you that this Scriptures are for a chosen group of people.
Look for someone below you and bless them and do not also make yourself the poverty chairman of your community.Go ye therefore and be a blessing to all.

Born Again!!!

For me I can’t say I just met God.I have known Him as long as I could understand, to read and to write.Amazingly I have had a taste of the Catholic Faith because I went to a Catholic Primary School for Seven Years, born to a Protestant (Presbyterian) Mother and had to walk back home from Presbyterian Church Bota to Behind Ambas Bay, Gardens, Limbe.
I learnt how to pray as a family when I spent time with my childhood friends the Achus (Aunty Kay, Ethel, Nina, Lloyd and Mummy Rosemary of blessed memory) just a few weeks before going to college.
I got into contact with the Baptist Faith in Saker Baptist College and this is where I got to really know who God is and will always be.
Through our daily devotions, Sunday school and the Spiritual Emphasis, this school taught me that the only way to live was to start each day with God.
In 2001, I went to the Presbyterian High School in Kumba where Morning & Event Devotion is part of the school program as it in the case with most mission schools.

In 2013 I began fellowshipping at Lighthouse Chapel International and this is where I learnt on what it means to be born again and creating a deep relationship with God.
In a summary I would say it helped to put all what I had learnt in the Catholic, Presbyterian & Baptist School into perspective and into practice.
A lot of people criticize others when they say they are born again and sometimes the newly born again Christians are taken aback when asked what they mean by they are born again.
I will share what I learnt from LCI New Believers School and once I understood salvation I was baptized with water (immersion) and the Holy Spirit (speaking in tongues ) .
Being born again simply implies that you understand what salvation is all about , why , when and how.
I think this is the part where you will need your Bible ,a pen , and a highlighter… I will like to explain this backed by scriptures as I am taught by my Father, Bishop Dag Heward Mills.

In Romans 3:23 we learn that we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and Psalm 51:1 gives us a deep understanding of how we came into contact with sin
‘Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.’

We deserve to be punished and we shall be punished if we continue to hold the truth in unrighteousness.The wages of sin is death – Romans 6:23.

No one is judging you or me but our Father in Heaven knows it all .Look into Romans 1:18 -32 and be honest to yourself, are you for God or against God?
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

The conclusion is we are all sinners but because of the Love which God had for his beautiful creation mankind, He sent His only Son that whosoever believe that in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life – John 3:16.

A Scripture that most of us know by heart and were taught right from Sunday School. The Verse 17 of this Scripture is usually left out, but amazingly it reiterates God’s intention towards us ” For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
Usually, we condemn ourselves for the wrong things we have done , the goodnews is that Jesus did came for us sinners , for us to turn away from sin and be saved.

We become born again when believe that Jesus died , resurrected for the forgiveness of our sins (Hebrews 9:22) and receiving him as our personal savior which is clearly enacted in John 1:12
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the
sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”

Being Born Again is fulfillment of the Bible in Romans 10:9,10
” 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

* After this confession you have become a new creation 2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are
passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
* All your sins past, present and future are remitted, I am not the one saying so it is what the Bible tells us in Hebrews 9:12 and I love the way The Message Bible puts it “He also bypassed the sacrifices consisting of goat and calf blood, instead using his own blood as the price to set us free once and for all.”
* You are now a son or daughter of God – John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
* You have eternal life – John 5:24 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

The Big Question is who then is Born Again?
A Born Again Christian is someone who has invited Jesus Christ into his life and is determined to live a life controlled by the Bible(Word) and the Holy Spirit.

Do you Know Jesus as your Lord and Personal Savior?
If you don’t then now is the time to turn to Jesus wherever you are and say the sinner’s prayer to God not to man:
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
