Ministry of the Word(MOW)
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
Theme: Without the Truth, there is a Vacuum.
” Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
Let’s praise God for the power of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Truly, our God is all powerful. The only omnipotent God. All powers bow before Him. Nothing can work successfully against the truth. Satan and his demons have no choice but take permission from Him before they can do anything (Job 1:12).
Beloved, have you ever wondered why more rich people end up killing themselves compared to the middle class? Have you ever wondered why more rich people feel insecure compared to the middle class? It is largely because, without deep knowledge of the truth and passion for the truth, there is a big vacuum in the life of that person. Ordinarily, wealth is not evil. Unfortunately most rich people tend to put their faith and trust in their wealth, rather than on the author of life. Jesus is the way, the truth and the only true source of life. This might explain why the Truth Himself says:
“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:24).
The significant question is: If it is so difficult for riches to lead us to heaven, why do many young men and women in our societies compromise so easily when it comes to handling money ? Why is it difficult to find integrity among Christians? I am not ashamed to say this, in most churches today, it is difficult to find the truth. In the last few years ( 2008 to be precise ) that the merciful and gracious Lord has led me through the Ministry Of the Word(MOW), it has been disheartening to observe almost total lack of truth, integrity, honesty, openness, transparency and sincerity amongst the brothers and sisters that the Lord has enabled me to interact with. Often times I ask why this should be the case in the body of Christ. One would have expected the body of Christ to be the epitome of truth and integrity.
Beloved, money , title, position, wealth or material things can never bring true peace and joy to a person. Only the word of God, also known as the truth ( John 17:17) does. JESUS is the Word of God (John 1:1); He was with God in the beginning ; He is the only source of true joy and peace. He says:
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Beloved, henceforth , do no longer compromise with the truth. Only the truth can make you free( John 8:32); Only the Son of God (the Truth), can make you free indeed (John 8:36). Some people can lie or distort information very easily without guilt feelings. You begin to wonder what has happened to their conscience. The freedom we are talking about is primarily spiritual; secondarily , mental and physical freedom.
You were purchased with a price. You are worth more than you know. Embrace a life of truth, honesty, purity and integrity so as to enjoy intimacy with the Lord. Without these you are separated from Him (Isaiah 59:1-2), no matter how often you ‘go to church’ or the titles you hold.
Without the truth, you are never complete. Without the truth there will be a vacuum in your life. Please, choose to embrace the truth from now on to enjoy all round life prosperity. Henceforth, tell the devil, I will never honour you and dishonour Jesus by lying or distorting information.
It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh profit nothing ( John 6:63)
Have a Spirit-filled and blessed week.
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33).
Prayer: There is someone reading this message , receive the grace to embrace the Truth henceforth in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
