DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  ROMANS 12:4-8

(4)  For as we have many members in one body,  and all members have not the same office:
(5)  So we,  being many,  are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
(6)  Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us,  whether prophecy,  let us prophesy  according to the proportion of faith;
(7)  Or ministry,  let us wait on our ministering:  or he that teacheth, on teaching;
(8)  Or he that exhorteth,  on exhortation:  he that giveth,  let him do it with simplicity;  he that ruleth,  with diligence;  he that sheweth mercy,  with cheerfulness.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  every living soul is gifted with detailed plan on how to do something wisely on this planet earth;  we congregate as one body in Christ, but with different god given abilities for glorification of the Father, through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior:  we receive differs gifts from the LORD, not because we earn them, but by his grace they are given, to ed…

(KJV.)  JEREMIAH 32:37-40

(37)  Behold,  I will gather them out of all countries,  whither  I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath;  and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:
(38)  And they shall be my people, and I will be their God:.
(39)  And I will give them one heart,  and one way,  that they may fear me for ever,  for the good of them, and of their children after them:
(40)  And I will make an everlasting covenant with them,  that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts,  that they shall not depart from me.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  when our eyes are fix up in trusting the LORD, and in unity and obedience to him;  then our hearts are in tuned with him;  when we reverence him, and love one another, and stay steadfast in him;  he will delight himself in our ways and bless us:  our Lord and Savior Jesus, forgives all our sins, and set us free from bondage,…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  PHILIPPIANS 2:5-11

(5)  Let this mind be in you,  which was also in Christ Jesus:
(6)  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.
(7)  But made himself of no reputation,  and took upon him the form of a servant,  and was made in the likeness of men:
(8)  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
(9)  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
(10) That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,  of things in heaven,  and things in earth, and things under the earth;
(11) And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  Jesus, gave his life as a sacrifice to redeem our souls from destruction;  therefore, let us be grateful and rejoice at his presence, with praises and adoration:  Jesus, being in a form of the LORD, made himself of no reputatio…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  ZECHARIAH 8:16-17

(16)  These are things that ye shall do;  Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour;  execute the judgment of truth and peace in you gates:
(17)  And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour;  and love no false oath:  for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren, we are to enrich and strengthen ourselves everyday with the scriptures, judge truthfully and live peaceably with all men:  let us not form negative ideas about people, or make vain promises to one another; for all these traits are an abomination to the LORD of hosts.

Brethren,  as believers in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  (i)  we are to stand for justice for all humanity, regardless of social backgrounds or countries of origination;  (ii)  we are to speak the truth to ourselves no matter what our circumstances may be;  (iii)  we are to clear our consciences on matters that we know are evil speaking of;  (iv)  we are to speak …

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  GENESIS 12:1-3

(1)  Now the LORD had said unto Abram,  Get thee out of thy country,  and from thy kindred,  and from thy father's house,  unto a land that I will shew thee:
(2)  And I will make of thee a great nation,  and I will bless thee,  and make thy name great;  and thou shalt be a blessing:
(3)  And  I will bless them that bless thee,  and curse him, that curseth thee;  and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  it pleases the LORD to convert and bless us, even though we are not worthy of his blessings:  let us not doubt him;  for his ways are mysterious and his blessings are everlasting; from generations to generations, he is faithful through his covenant of blessings with Abram, father of all nations.

Brethren, the LORD, commanded Abram to leave the country of his origin, and his idol worshiping father to unknown destination;  he did not know exactly where he was going, yet obeyed, took his wife Sa-rai, nephew Lot and…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  I CORINTHIANS 5:6-8

(6)  Your glorying is not good,  Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
(7)  Purge out therefore the old leaven,  that ye may be a new lump,  as ye are unleavened.  For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.
(8)  Therefore let us keep the feast,  not with old leaven,  neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness,  but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren, let us be humble in all our ways, and not be puffed up ourselves over things of this world, and take glory for the fact that we know everything, and can do everything within our own powers, knowledge and capabilities, for these types of  attitudes can lead us into destruction;  the scriptures says,  this is not good!

Brethren,  the leaven referred to in this context is our sinful natures, leaven is fermented dough, things that are rotten are unholy to the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  ther…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  I JOHN 2:21-25

(21)  I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth,  but because ye know, and that no lie is of the truth.
(22)  Who is a liar  but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?  He is an-ti-christ,  that denieth the Father and the Son.
(23)  Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:  (but)  he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
(24)  Let that therefore abide in you,  which ye have heard from the beginning.  If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you,  ye also shall continue in the Son,  and in the Father.
(25)  And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  the word of the LORD, is given to us everyday, not because we do not already know what we read, but so we continue to believe the truth that Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is the Son of the LORD of hosts, the only way, truth, and the life of this world, no man cometh to the Father, but by…

DAILY BREAD OF LIIFE

(KJV.)  JEREMIAH 29:11-14

(11)  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,  saith  the LORD,  thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
(12)  Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.
(13)  And ye shall seek me,  and find me,  when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
(14)  And I will be found of you,  saith the LORD:  and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you,  saith the LORD;  and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  no matter what mountains of difficulties we face in life today, the LORD of host is thinking good thoughts about us;  thoughts of peace and not of calamities;  thoughts to restore our lives back to eternity:  though we are sick, poor and needy, he does not see us as children of afflictions, or lack but of abundance of…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  PROVERBS 21:21

(21)  He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life,  righteousness, and honour.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  when we try to act justly with tender loving kindness to others, and live in godliness, the scriptures says, we shall  prosper in all our ways, and receive justice and worthiness ourselves by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forever.

Brethren,  the context above is pretty clear and straight forward;  but my point is,  when we receive Jesus Christ, into our lives as our Lord and Savior, and are baptized into the faith, our lives are changed forever;  all ungodly attributes are cleansed by his blood and we receive newness of hearts by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit;  the Holy Spirit takes control and directs our ways unto righteousness so we dwell in sin no more, but seek after righteousness of Jesus Christ; therefore, let us love our neighbors as ourselves;  for love is the fulfillment of the whole law, and know…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  II PETER 1:4-8

(4)  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:  that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
(5)  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue;  and to virtue knowledge;
(6)  And to knowledge temperance;  and to temperance patience;  and to patience godliness;
(7)  And to godliness brotherly kindness;  and to brotherly kindness charity.
(8)  For if these things be in you, and abound,  they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren, we receive grace and peace by knowing the LORD, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  by his heavenly powers, we also receive instructions and assurances of all things regarding this life, and righteousness by his wisdom, to praise and honor him, with good behaviors in this sinful world, and thereafter inherit life everlasti…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  I THESSALONIANS 4:13-17

(13)  But  I would not have you to be ignorant,  brethren,  concerning them which are asleep,  that ye sorrow not,  even as others which have no hope.
(14)  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,  even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
(15)  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord,  that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
(16)  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:  and the dead in Christ shall rise first.
(17)  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:  and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  concerning those who pass away from physical into the spiritual realms, we do not want to feel sad and grieve as though there is no hope after death, but comfort others…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  MARK 6:41-44

(41)  And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes,  he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them;  and the two fishes divided he among them all.
(42)  And they did all eat, and were filled.
(43)  And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
(44)  And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  what a miracle!  there is nothing impossible with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  when we put him and his will first, trust him with everything we do, he will manifest his glory in our lives and we shall not lack anything but have abundance of blessings:  this miracle is an example of his love for humanity;  he cares for our needs, and provides our daily bread, wells of water to drink, shelter through the storms, and will not forsake us forever.

Points to ponder;  (i)  in the desert, the followers of Jesus Christ, ha…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  MATTHEW 17:20

(20)  And Jesus said unto them,  Because of your unbelief:  for verily I say unto you,  If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed,  ye shall say unto this mountain,  Remove hence to yonder place;  and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  let us believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, and have an unshakable faith to perform miracles, signs and wonders;  that at the mention of his Holy Name, positive things should manifest in our lives and negative reproaches should disappear with the whirlwind forever. 

Case in point,  to be a follower of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, we already have faith and believe in him that;  (i)  he is the only begotten son of the father, who loves us all regardless of who we are in this sinful world;  (ii)  that he suffered for our sins in the hands of evil men, died and rose again to save us all from bondage of sins;  (iii)  and by his resurrection, we receive peace and gra…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  JEREMIAH 22:3

(3)  Thus saith the LORD;  Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor:  and do no wrong,  do no violence to the stranger,  the fatherless,  nor the widow,  neither shed innocent blood in this place.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren, the LORD, is speaking to us today to exercise godliness in all our ways;  when we find ourselves in positions of judgments, let us judge righteously, and bring back things into proper perspective;  we are not to mistreat others who are foreign among us, children without parents or women without husbands, nor testify falsely against those who do no wrong to be put to death on this planet earth.

Points to ponder,  our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, said it all;  ......, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.  (Matthews 22:39);  therefore, we owe it to ourselves to love one another, as Jesus, loves us and gave himself as a sacrificial lamb to redeem our souls from bondage of sins:  if …

(1)  BLESS the LORD,  O my soul:  and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
(2)  Bless the LORD,  O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.
(3)  Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;  who healeth all thy diseases;
(4)  Who redeemeth thy life from destruction;  who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
(5)  Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things;  so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren, let us give praises and adoration to the LORD, with all our hearts, souls and bodies, and with shouts, timbrel and dances, and let his Holy Name be glorified over all the earth forevermore! praise him, for his goodness and mercies ever faithful and forever sure to all humanity;  thank him for undeserved kindnesses bestowed upon our lives everyday;  for the LORD is good to all, both godly and the ungodly, his loves never fails.

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren, it is godly to read the scriptures everyday, for the word is our spiritual food and living water;  if we constantly read the word, it will nourish and strengthen our souls:  however, let us not only read but study also, both day and night, and apply its wisdom to our daily lives;  by doing so, we shall have abundance of blessings and succeed in all our ways.  

Case in point,  Jesus, is the word, life and light of this world, (John 1:1-4);  when we read the word daily, we are partakers of the light and life in him, and no darkness shall indwell or overshadow our souls;  also, if we study the word carefully, the word will empower us with spirits of discernment, to guide ou…

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  we need to appreciate the LORD of hosts, everyday;  for, he gives us the ability and strength to acquire possessions by the Grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ;  and fulfills all promises given to our fore fathers, even to this present day, we are still enjoying his goodness and mercies.

Brethren, the LORD, ways are unsearchable, who can understand?;   because of his goodness and mercies, we enjoy all things freely;  (i)  the air we breathe has oxygen to sustain our lives;  (ii)  the water we drink quenches our thirst so our souls are strengthen;  (iii)  the plants, livestock and fishes of the ocean are for our consumption, so our souls are nourish everyday;   (iv)  the sun and moon lights shines upon the earth, so we dwell not in darkness b…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  PSALM 123:1-4

(1)  UNTO thee lift I up mine eyes,  O  thou that dwellest in the heavens.
(2)  Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress;  so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God,  until that he have mercy upon us.
(3)  Have mercy upon us,  O LORD,  have mercy upon us:  for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
(4)  Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  when our enemies provoke us because of our standing with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  as believers, we can only lift up our eyes unto our maker the LORD of hosts, who lives on high, to seek his face for divine interventions, to fight our battles and prevail against all odds:  while hurdles are over our heads, let us persevere in prayers and supplications, and reading of his word; until Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, will have c…

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  MATTHEW 6:9-13

(9)  After this manner therefore pray ye:  Our Father which art in heaven,  Hallowed be thy name.
(10) Thy kingdom come.  Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
(11) Give us this day our daily bread.
(12) And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
(13) And lead us not into temptation,  but deliver us from evil:  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, andthe glory,  for ever.  Amen.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  this is a perfect example of how we ought to pray to the LORD of hosts everyday:  Jesus, simplifies all our prayer requests by condensing them into three sections as follows; when we pray, (a)  we have to acknowledge his supremacy, that he created all things;  (b) and have faith, humility and love to approach him, and believe that he owns everything, and our petitions will be granted; (c)  we also need to have the assurance that all things are in his possession, and will surely give us our heart desires.

Brethren,  Jesus, our Lord …

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  I CORINTHIANS 15:19-26

(19)  If in this life only we have hope in Christ,  we are of all men most miserable.
(20)  But now is Christ risen from the dead,  and become the first-fruits of them that slept.
(21)  For since by man came death,  by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
(22)  For as in Adam all die,  even so in Christ shall all be made alive.



WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Brethren,  if we Christians have hope only in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and there is no life beyond this present life, and we deny ourselves the enjoyment of this life;  but suffer trials and tribulations, and live miserable lives, then our lives are in vain, with no hope of everlasting life;  but Jesus Christ, by his resurrection made the earliest gift of fruitfulness;  he paid the price for those who believe in him, to receive rebirth unto eternity:  therefore, we have hope now,  for by the sin of man (Adam) came death into humanity, so also by the resurrection of  Jesus Christ, came life an…
