THEME: CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST
“Having confidence in your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I say.”
-Apostle Paul who described himself as an ambassador in chains, exhorted Philemon to continue in love and faith for others, holding fast obedience in Christ. Confidence in Christ is also obedience to His word. Like Moses was given the law which he deliver to the Israelites that they may be obedient to God. We have been given the law of love that we may edify the kingdom of God. Since the word of God has been summarized in the law of love, we should then display our obedience by loving God, our neighbours and our enemies, by the power of the Holy Spirit. For without love we do not know God, for God is love, and without faith we cannot please God. Anyone who loves God is known by Him (1 Corinthians 8:3). We should then adhere to love through obedience, holding fast faith in God with the confidence that we belong to the Lord.
Lord You are Holy and Your holiness is everlasting. Cleanse us from all unrighteousness and deliver us from all evil. Grant us the grace to love Holy Spirit. The grace to love You, our neighbor and even our enemies. Help us to only repay evil with good and not evil with evil. Grant us the grace to follow You will and always be obedient to Your word. Only You Holy Spirit can give us the grace and power. May Your power overtake our personal desires, emotions and interests, so that we may be selfless for Your kingdom benefit. May our leaders be selfless for Your glory Lord. May our churches be selfless for Your kingdom purposes. May our families be selfless for the sake of love. May our entire nation be selfless for Your sake of Your kingdom. May Your kingdom come Jesus and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Your kingdom which is filled with righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost, help us to remain in You as You are in us. Only You are Holy Lord, only You are love. Washing us by Your precious blood and fill us with Your fruit and gifts for the sake Your kingdom. May Your church Lord bear much fruit as You have empowered it. All glory, honor, power, riches, wisdom and blessings belongs to You Lord, now and forever. Amen
