Seek First His Righteousness

Introduction

This study goes in depth with abundant scripture to prove that once a person places their faith and trust in Jesus, they are declared righteous, right with God by faith. It has nothing to do with our personal actions and everything to do with Jesus obedience. This study will set you on the firm foundation of Jesus righteousness. The Bible is clear that once your mind and heart is established in His Righteousness, the other things you need and have been seeking will be added unto you. Get your Bible out and study with me. If you have any questions, comments or objections, I really hope you will post them below the study or contact me through private messenger.

Spiritual Warfare Part 1

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12, KJV). Ephesians 6:12 is a verse of Scripture that is commonly quoted by those who engage in “spiritual warfare.” The question is: what does it mean to wrestle, and what does that look like? What are the true weapons of the Christian, and how do they apply? Perhaps a clue may be that the phrase, “spiritual warfare,” is not in the Bible. That is to say, the word “spiritual” and the word “warfare” can be found, but they are not joined together. Perhaps the warfare is to stay spiritual, regardless of our circumstances. What does the word, “wrestle,” mean? In essence, it means just that, to struggle or to engage in hand-to-hand combat on an individual basis. However, we cannot approach the subject from a naturalistic approach. Our opening text plainly states, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood.” Our fight is not against people, which is very important to remember. It goes beyond flesh and blood; nevertheless, the way we deal with people goes hand in hand with the way we wrestle.

A Hurting Soul Speaks Out Part 2

You may have to wait for many years to experience your morning breeze, which will naturally take you into the brightness of the day. Some individuals will find that it takes decades while others will have a much shorter time to endure the pain.

However long your night is, remember that God designed us and He knows our threshold. He alone knows how much we can bear and He promised that He will not give us more than we can bear. So know that the challenges you currently face, God has already granted you the strength to endure and He says, ‘My grace is sufficient for you.’ The enemy of our souls will try to make us think otherwise, when things do not seem to be happening in the time that we expected it. But they were never going to happen within our timescale; God is always in control.

Bread of Life Part 2

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” John 6:35-40 NIV

Unconditional Love with Conditions

Most Christians have heard of the term “agape” love, which means loving unconditionally. We are to love others as we love ourselves; husbands are to love their wives as Christ loves the Church. We are told to accept others as they are, and to exercise tolerance, patience, gentleness, forbearance, and kindness.

Yet, with all of this teaching on love, there is an imbalance that raises several crucial thoughts. I think we could all agree that a big part of loving people is exhibiting the fruits of the Spirit, like those mentioned above, and simply being “nice” to others. I mean, no one wants to come across as mean, hard, callous, uncaring and unforgiving. But does being nice always mean accepting a situation or showing tolerance, no matter what? Does it mean going along just to get along with someone else? Does it mean being a people pleaser?

Nobody Warned Me

I was born in Kenya and lived there for the next 30 years.

When I went abroad for further studies in a cold country, I knew nothing practical about winter. The way the ground could get frozen and slippery, especially an icy road, was something that I would have appreciated if someone warned me about.

I was out one morning cycling to the university, some 6 km away. The lecture was soon beginning. If I cycled as fast as I used to, I wouldn’t be late for the lecture.

It was cold but that was all I had known that far about winter. I had taken care of that by putting on warm clothes. For me, that was all that I needed to do against the cold weather.
