Eph 5:31
31 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh."NIV

the scripture that redefines mathematics, 1+1=1 flesh

Don't give people a piece of your mind, give em the peace in your heart that you have learned to walk in through Jesus

1 Peter 2:9-10
9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. NKJV

It is a fact that believers in Jesus Christ are now the PEOPLE of God who have been chosen as HIS OWN SPECIAL people to become a ROYAL priesthood.......not when we get to heaven some day but now as we live our lives on earth..........so rather than be UNHOLY COMPLAINERS let us PROCLAIM His praises all week long 24-7, don't wait to get into Church on Sunday to praise with others, do it all week long just between you and HIM

“If you don’t love where you are right now, you won’t love where you are going. Here is what I know: People who are passionate about what they do every day and love where they are in life are the fortunate ones. They have discovered their purpose. They are the difference makers who fully understand the gift of adding value, and yes, they can’t help but love where they are going on their journey.” – John C. Maxwell

The mark of a GREAT Church is not about the number of people who come, but how many people live differently for having been there.

When we stop dreaming we start dying. Without a vision and purpose people have nothing to LIVE for

You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks....Sir Winston Churchill

"The world never burned a casual Christian at the stake." --John R. Rice

The kingdom within us is more powerful than the kingdom around us

Mark 12:26-27
26 But concerning the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? 27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. You are therefore greatly mistaken." NKJV

God is the God of the living and not the dead

Ps 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the LORD shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they trust in Him. NKJV

The Lord Himself is our HELPER and our STRENGTH in troubled times

"When we say we want to be the hands and feet of Jesus we must remember what happened to the hands and feet of Jesus." --Eric Geiger

Supernatural ministry should be normal for followers of Jesus. Answered prayers healings salvations etc

”If your dream's not bigger than you, you don't have a very big dream. We should always dream much larger than what we are capable of – otherwise, how will we grow? I have often said that you should stay in your strength zone, but get out of your comfort zone. And that only happens when you take on a challenge that is bigger than you and can only be realized through purposeful self-development.” ~ John C. Maxwell

If your vision is getting BLURRED it may be time to refocus

Eph 6:18-20
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
19 Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should. NIV

Paul says we are to pray in the Spirit on every occasion or opportunity with all the different kinds of prayer. It says to pray for all the saints and even for him. Everybody needs prayer from the body of Christ, especially leaders and nations and pastors and children and parents and everybody else................

Matt 18:19-20
19 Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them." NKJV

it always takes at least two for there to be agreement, cant do it by yourself

Jesus was crucified AS US not just FOR US and His righteousness became ours

Ps 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the LORD shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they trust in Him. NKJV

The Lord Himself is our HELPER and our STRENGTH in troubled times

Our abilities are not as important to God as our availability.....afterall if we arent making ourselves available for HIS-story, we will miss the blessings of our story being told like the Biblical narrative of all the people God used in history.....

When His story enters our story, HISTORY is made for heaven to record
