Ministry of the Word (MOW):
True Spirituality (TS).
Improving our Spiritual Understanding
Theme: Be Aware of Distraction.
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith…(Heb 12:2).
In your walk with the Lord, you are bound to face distractions in so many ways. Distractions could take different guise. The primary purpose of distraction is to take your focus away from JESUS. Without knowing what to do, fear, discouragement, stagnation and failure can easily set it.
When Jesus went to the house of Mary and Martha, the Bible says whereas Mary was focused on Jesus, sitting at His feet to hear the Word, Martha was distracted (Luke 10:40) as she was more concerned with service and house work. She actually felt she was the one doing the right thing, hence complained to the Lord about her sister Mary, until Jesus reminded her that compared with other life needs, only “one thing is needful” (Luke 10:42).
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matt 6:33).
Remember Peter, how he began to walk on water towards Jesus, and suddenly started to sink due to distraction, when he took his focus away from Jesus to look at the boisterous wind ( Matt 14:22-33).
Believe me, even in the Church, there are spirits of distraction, manipulation and seduction, flying around. Without knowledge, it is very easy to become a prey. Recognising contrary spirits in others is a specific gift every true believer should ask the Lord for, if you are to fight a good fight.
Resist the devil and he will flee from you(James 4:7).
PRAYER: For every one reading this message, may you receive the grace of spiritual discernment in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen

Spiritual Counselling Helpline:
In the Ministry Of the Word (MOW)-Acts 6:4, we primarily encourage and empower believers to be rich in the words of God: “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom” (Col 3:16). The entrance of the WORD is the true source of LIGHT in a dark world(Ps 119:130). We also encourage believers to speak to one another “in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs(Eph 5:19). We encourage everyone to “seek first the kingdom of God his righteousness” Matt 6:33). Righteousness exalts(Prov 14:34). We emphasize that pure Christianity is about True Spirituality in Christ Jesus. We emphasize that the POWER in the blood of Jesus has set us FREE from bondage, and that where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (2Cor 3:17). Jesus Christ is the Word of God (John 1:1). Jesus is the Truth (John 14:6). The words of God are spirit & are Life(John 6:63). We allow the Scriptures to answer all questions. We create the awareness that Jesus has made all true believers kings and priests unto God and his Father(Rev 1:6). In addition, as a spiritual body, we also empower unbelievers, using the principles of our Lord Jesus Christ with the understanding that when they witness the power of the living God, they will exalt his holy name (Psalm 46:10). One major objective of MOW is to increasingly improve everyone’s spiritual understanding! Spiritual ignorance is a major cause of human destruction(Hosea 4:6). Indeed, many children of God have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge (Isa 5:13). Please note that the MOW is an initiative and the spiritual arm of Abasi Health Foundation (AHF). AHF is a registered NGO in Nigeria , with the primary objective of empowering all groups of people to optimize their health. It is aimed at encouraging everyone to have increasing awareness of three broad levels of health: Physical, Mental and Spiritual. May God give you the grace of increasing understanding in Jesus Name. Amen. Websites: http//www.ministryoftheword.org
