1 Corinthians 12:12-27 One body and many members of Christ!

1 Corinthians 12:27

“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” 

King James Version (KJV)

Good morning, afternoon and evening to you all!

I do pray that you all will have a blessed day and that our GOD will be with you and give you all of the comfort that you will need! And I do pray for all of those who do not seek after GOD and HIS son JESUS right now that will from here on. For if you are lead here today, I pray that GOD will give you the answers that you need to give you insight and faith in HIM to be a member of the body of Christ. Amen!!

We who are followers of JESUS are in the body, making us one family of GOD. There are no man made barriers that divide us from one group of people to another. We are one unit. Forget about the skin color, where a person came from, how little a person has, what clothes they have on, their height or weight, what language they speak. How much education they have or how little they have. Or anything else that man has thought of to divide people from being united in Christ!

I thank GOD for JESUS!!!! JESUS is the savior for all mankind!!!

Getting past the stereotypes we judge people by, I feel that once we do that and redo our thinking to think Christ like we wont care about the ways of the world. For how they judge us with their own ways. We will see a person, a soul with flesh, and to focus on the soul getting past the outside appearance to their heart. Doing so with GODLY discernment.

1 Corinthians 12:27

24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 

25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 

26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 

28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 

29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 

30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

Pastor Douglas J. Helton of Calvary Baptist Church, St. Charles Iowa.

Being in the body of Christ we are compassionate towards one another at all times, knowing that the person in front of you has Christ in them. We can not divide our selves and destroy each other and assume GOD will not see what is in our hearts. Or to do evil in the dark and closed places assuming GOD does not have the power to know all. GOD does know all.

The sermon that my husbands friend, Pastor Helton is teaching here in the 8/11/19 message is about just that. Any hurtful words, actions or thoughts GOD know all about it. Pastor Helton speaks of Galatians chapter 5:22-23.

Galatians 5:22-23 KJV

22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

KJV: King James Version

Let us get more into the practice of doing what this verse mentions about the 9 fruits of the spirit. We will then have more inner peace with in us. Knowing that we are doing GODS will and are spreading the peace that is in us to others.

Galatians chapter 5 22-23

May you all receive a blessing fro reading GOD’s word in this post. Please do share this message to others so they can read it and be blessed to from GOD and to know our beloved savior Christ Jesus! Pass it forward!

Peace!

Matthew 5:44 Prayer Lists. Pray for you enemies as well as your loved ones too.

Good morning , afternoon or evening to all who are reading this blog today. I do pray that you all will have a blessed day in the LORD!

As each year in time, it gets closer to the return of our JESUS coming again to take all of the people who love HIM away with HIM. We are here in this fallen world to cling to our faith in our loving GOD and HIS loving son JESUS. Our trust and prayers to our GOD for us to have eternal peace.

Confusion, defiance, going against all that is right and Holy by calling it wrong seems to be the normal way of things today. It must be close to what Noah saw in his days before the great flood.

And in all of this confusion we wait in prayer for our saviour to return. But while we are here we must pray for all those we meet in passing. Our families and loved ones. Our beloved friends who we hold close to us too as if they are family. And also our enemies, those who seek to do us harm.

These people who hate us , hate our ever loving GOD too. They feel the need to hate us too because they know that GOD is in our hearts….they can sense it. Even at 1st glance. They do not want you around. Period. They will have to answer to our GOD for all they do to us.

These worldly people will always have more friends than you simply because they will be around like minded worldly people. There are more worldly thinking people around than there are saved and love GOD.

It is our job as Christians to try to spread the good news about salvation to these people in a loving way. Never harsh. We should give them hope and an truthful answer to why things happen. We all have a burden to carry or a cross to bear. But because of the confusion, they will or may assume wrong. This is why we need to tell them about JESUS in a loving way and let them know we all are sinners too. No one is better than the other, the only man to walk the earth with out sin was JESUS.

You will find people who do not have a connection to our GOD everywhere there are pepople, for the devil is busy trying to steal souls.

So this is why I say we need to not only pray for our loved ones, but for all people we know. Friends or not, they need prayer as well as you and I do.

My prayer book.

I started a prayer book. My book is not a fancy one. I little spiral note book that is small enough to fit in my pocket or bag. Love how small and thick it is at the same time.

The first page has my prayer for all of the people I add to the book. I add the names and what the need is or not. The LORD knows their need and that is what is important their need. The LORD knows the details.

It will fill up fast when you see how many people might confide in you with the situations that they may have. When you have a peacefulness about you, people will come to you who are seeking GOD and want to have someone who cares about them around .

Not like those who hate GOD and have no intentions on changing, but those who want to know GOD and are aware that there is a GOD. They are “babes in the LORD” as how my Husband will best explain it. I think this is a good explanation!

I have heard of people praying for people and then adding them to their prayer list since a child. Some would have more than book from doing so for years. Each person will do so in the way that they feel the LORD is leading them to do it. There is no set formula but a sincere heart and compassion for the people you write in your prayer book.

Matthew 5:44

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;” 

King James Version (KJV)

Our enemies do not realize what they are doing and the consequences that will come from it. They have not a clue. And if they feel there in a GOD, they may not care what our GOD thinks or GOD will not see what they do if they do so in secret. Yeah, but we who love and fear GOD know way better than that.

Here is some scripture to get things started in understanding why we as CHristians need to pray for all people. JESUS sacrificed HIS life on all of us people. So a loving prayer for all people is nothing compared to what our JESUS has done to save us all from sin.

Pray for all mankind, for we all need prayer. Everyone that you know and don’t know. We all will need to answer to our GOD for all of the wrongs we have done, thought, and said. Everyone.

Prayer will not hurt ever. And maybe with us praying for our enemies they will be saved, we do not know how the LORD will intervene in our favor. But we do know that he will because HE does love us!

Stay blessed and please pass this forward to the next person so that thay will recieve a blessing as well too.

Peace
