(KJV.) I CORINTHIANS 1:17
(17) For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
THE CROSS OF CHRIST!
Grace be unto you!
Believe it or not to believe; the divine nature of God is replicable with man; however, he does not give all of his wisdom to one soul, but rather distributes them according to their purposes to fulfill upon the earth, and also per his own prerogatives; therefore, it is an important factor, that we do not cover up the glory of God implanted within our innermost spirits, think or believe that our gifts are inferior compared to other people blessings, every gift is important to implicate among others.
Thoughtfully, when a soul is born to earth, everyone has a particular blueprint identification that no other person has, think of a fingerprint as an example; it is clueless, to decipher the code of how God, in his infinite power, thought of the idea to create an embedded mark upon mortal bodies, in other to give every individual a unique identity to differentiate who they are from others; therefore, everyone knows how to do something very well that many do not know how, and it has nothing to do with where you came from or educational background, because, God' the creator of souls and giver of the gift of life has also apportioned every bit of his wisdom to every person in a distinctive style to perform right along with the others.
The point is, from the early stages of human existence, God in his infinite wisdom implanted the know how to do spirits within our mortal souls; therefore, the gifts that we possess have nothing to do with our own intellects, how good we are at what we do; it is excellent for the glory of God, the giver; Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Corinthians; For Christ, sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel; this proclamation signifies to me that he was not envious of those who baptized the people in the name of Jesus Christ, he was pleased with his own calling to preach the gospel: therefore, it is a lesson for us, to learn how to be content with our callings, and do the best we can to help other people, and successfully finish our assignments.
Secondly, the fact that he was not educated to preach the gospel never bothered him, for his gift to evangelize was given to him by the Holy Spirit through the wisdom of Christ; that's it! all gifts are empowered from the spirits; so that his focus cannot be polluted with other peoples concept of what the cross of Jesus Christ should be, deviated from the truth, made it useless in the eyes of men: this type of inclination should remind us that in our preachings to never forget to mention the events that transpired during the crucifixion of Christ, his death and resurrection; for if he did not die on the cross, resurrected from death to redeem us, what would be our testimony? there will be no Christian faith of today; if not, what would have happened to our burdens of iniquities? Ponder over it!
Beloved, you are a significant person, what you contribute to society is important as well; know that you are chosen at a time like this, to share your gifts with others; no matter what may be, do the best you can do for others as they need you, your participation to serve others is appreciated by Jesus Christ; therefore, be encouraged to be the best you can be for him, share your wisdom with others, cf. James 1:17; today, the ball is in your court to play, handle it energetically, faithfully, be goal oriented, score your goals perfectly; for someday, you will be rewarded according to your works.
Continue ye in love! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) EPHESIANS 2:8
(8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
THANK YOU, FOR THE GIFT!
Grace be unto you!
What an amazing grace! For God, loves the world so much that he gave his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior so that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. cf. John 3:16; therefore, salvation is made accessible to all souls because of the love of God, revealed through grace, and it is for everyone who believes in him, and not of works; consequently, grace is a gift from God, that appeared in the salvation of sinners who believed in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Most assuredly, God sent his love to us; at the time when we wobbled in iniquities, Jesus Christ died and resurrected to save us from the hands of our taskmasters; such grace is not the same as a privilege, and it has nothing to do with a merit, a privilege is, a special right or advantage, a merit is, a reward for being good, but a grace, is a blessing from God, that we do not work for or deserve to receive from him, yet for his love, he gives to those who believe and trust him; today, if there is anyone among us, who for some type of a reason feels like you have fallen short of this grace, I tell you, that is not true! be encouraged, it is still available to you free of charge, pray and seek the face of Jesus Christ, read the scriptures, his promises are sure to enjoy his blessings.
Beloved, though there is a certain degree of grace available to humanity, such as the grace to live again every morning, the air we breathe into our nostrils, food, and water we drink to sustain lives, good health, and vitality', loved ones around us; these are the blessings that we cannot attain by ourselves, but received by his grace; therefore, if we have received such lovely favors from God, going forward, it will be nice on our parts if we love, and show kindness to one another, if God has exemplified his love for us through Jesus Christ, redeemed us from the past, present, and future sins; my question to you is, what are you doing to show your love to others? Ponder over it! The answer is your grace to others!
Continue to love one another as yourself! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
THE WORD OF APPRECIATION:
(KJV.) II Corinthians 9:15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

(KJV.) COLOSSIANS 3:9
(9) Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
TELL IT LIKE IT IS!
Grace be unto you!
Hmm! A white lie, a black lie, a lie is a lie! Interestingly, humanity has not changed its attributes, it is the blood of Jesus Christ that washes away our transgressions; as true Christians, let us be truthful to ourselves and to others.
When in a position to say something positive or negative about what you know, tell the truth of the matter, call a spade a spade, never tell a lie to cover up another lie; if it is a matter of life or death, be encouraged to choose life, be truthful anyways, standing with the word of God, with his word, if you should die for telling the truth about what you know, your soul leaves on with him in eternity; if you choose to live a life of deceptions, always trying to defend yourself against life pressures, it is not advisable for you to live your life in a delusion, for lying is the greatest attribute of the devil; and as a Christian believer, cast away the past attitudes and behaviors, emulate and exemplify Christ, put on the new you, with faith in his words and integrity in his righteousness.
Case in point, in the garden of Eden, the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtly to partake of the forbidden fruit, she convinced Adam who partook of it as well, cf. Genesis 3; because of the lies of the devil, sin entered into the world: after they ate the fruit, something else happened to them; the devil infiltrated their true natures with his spirit of deception; when God, asked Adam why he hid himself from him, he passes the blame to Eve, then Eve, in turn, passed the barton blame to the serpent, lying, shifting the blame upon one another to cover up their sinful behaviors, read the entire chapter of Genesis 3, emphasizing on verses11 to 13; there is one important thing that you should never do, that is to blame other people for your erroneous actions.
Beloved, the aftermath of what transpired between the Serpent, Adam and Eve inside the garden of Eden, is still on to the present times; the attribute of lying had tormented the heart of souls to lie against one another, sworn under the oath against the truth of matters; in another instance of lies, due to the envious and jealous actions of Cain, he angrily killed his brother Abel over a burnt sacrifices; read the book of Genesis chapter 4, pondering on verse 9: when God, asked Cain of Abel's whereabouts, Cain lied to him, saying, I know not, am I my brother's keeper? therefore, no matter who you are in this world, everyone has the tendency of lying, talk is free, but should we lie to one another in this world? I say, No, absolutely Not! and Yes! absolutely, positively tell the truth of matters.
Continue to Love one another as yourself! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
