From Me to You… Message: 29th April, 2020.

Brothers and Sisters,

He is Risen! Alleluia Alleluia!

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4

There are three specific things that the Christian has been instructed to overcome – the world, the flesh and the devil.. and in each case, we have been equipped with the tools to do just that. when we submit ourselves to God, and resist the devil – he will flee from us.

Overcoming the works of the flesh, is to walk in the spirit and adhere to the truth.. and the Word of God gives many helpful instructions on how to be filled with the spirit, so that the lusts of the flesh will be starved of their sinful desires.

It is our faith that overcomes the world. But faith must have an object.. and the object of our faith is Jesus Christ. It is our faith in the Person and Work of the Lord Jesus that gains victory over the world. It is trusting in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus our Saviour, for the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting, that overcomes the world.

Suppose we understand by the world the evil principles and practices which are among men, and in the human heart; then the influence of God in the soul may be properly said to overcome this; and by faith in the Son of God a man is able to overcome all that is in the world, the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eye, and the pride of life.

By faith in Christ, we have overcome the ungodly world system that is saturated in sin and seeks to entrap us all in its many and varied temptations and enticements. And God has given us all we need to not only overcome the word – but also to overcome the flesh and the devil. Let us live and work to His praise and glory – for He alone deserves all honour and glory, for He alone is worthy.

You are reminded to be proactive always. Please do as you are required to ensure your safety and the safety of others. We pray for the souls of the departed from the Covid-19 virus and ask God to grant them pardon for their shortcomings and bring them into the Glory of his Kingdom.

You possess GOD DNA ?
You have exactly what it takes to rise above. Be thankful in every situation that you are faced with.

Fr. David.
