THEME: FAITH AND WORKS
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.”
-Christ demonstrated His power by works of healing the sick, performing miracles, raising the dead, casting out demons and restoration of souls through the infilling of the Holy Spirit. Those who believed, their faith made them well (Mark 5:34). Christ has given us the power and authority to perform greater signs and commissioned us to preach the Gospel to the whole world. We are called to have faith when we ask and it shall be given unto us, to seek and we will find, to knock and the door shall be opened unto us. We should also believe in His works and have unwavering faith that these works will be manifested in us and through us; for the glory of His name.
Faith in Christ is the basic foundation of our Christian lives. We should then put on faith in Christ which is pleasing to God. Abraham the father of faith did not consider his body as dead or the deadness of Sarah’s womb but was fully convinced that what God promised, He is able to perform. When he was instructed to sacrifice his son Isaac, he did not relent but obeyed putting in works and God revealed Himself faithful to him. We too are called to believe entirely on God in everything for nothing is impossible with Him. We are also called to apply faith and works through providing for our families, as one who does not provide for his own household is worse than an unbeliever. Further, to give alms to the needy which is a duty of every Christians; for the benefit of the kingdom of God. Having been founded on a Rock Who is Christ, we are called to serve Him as each one is called as we hold fast faith putting in works, for faith without works is dead.
We humbly ask You Jesus to have mercy on us for we have sinned. Forgive us and cleanse us with Your precious blood. Many are suffering all over the world because of corona virus, heal them merciful Father and grant them peace. Heal our land Father from all evil and prosper us with plenty of fruit for the glory of Your name. We seek Your face everyday that You may increase our faith in You and grant us power to perform greater signs for Your names sake. Fill us the wisdom that only comes from You so that we may put in works in our households and society; for the benefit of those who need us most. We knock at Your door for Jesus grant us grace and open many divine opportunities for us. We ask for Your direction as we seek first Your kingdom and righteousness and believe that all other things You will add unto us. Only You are Holy, only You are Lord, teach us to remain in You as You are in us. Amen
