Mother's Day!!!

main image
John 19:26-27 "26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! 27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home."
In the waining hours at the cross, Jesus remained faithful to his calling. But, he never relieved himself of his Human responsibilities. He stayed true to his heritage, by appointing the disciple whom he loved (John) as executor of his will. His will was to have the Mother who took care of him, to be taken care of in his absence. He also made it clear to her that she should make her place under the watchful eye of this disciple. He not only fulfilled Jewish law and custom, but in every area completed it down to signing every "I" and crossing every "T". His human heart cared very dearly about Mary his mother and up to his last breath he provided for her.
So, remember this when you think of your own mother today on Mother's Day!!!

Fit For The Kingdom

main image

If I was to ask you if you were fit for the kingdom, you'd probably look at me funny and say "of course I am, what kind of question is that"? Well what if I was to tell you that this question is more about your commitment, than your hearts condition. Would you still say yes?

Today's church has been asked this very thing according to The book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. He tells most of the Churches that he has somewhat against them because of their fitness for the kingdom. Listen to what he says to Ephesus return to your first works and repent. To Smyrna he says do not be afraid of persecution. To Pergamum he says repent of idolatry and sexual immorality that has crept in. He says to Thyatira to be sanctified and hold on to his promises. He says to Sardis wake up and fortify his teachings in their lives before they are too worldly and miss out on his return. He says to Philadelphia that they should keep holding on to what they have done in Christ and don't lose it. And to Laodicea, he says don't be as destitute as the rest of the world is;but become true disciples of him.

We can't be satisfied with the status quo when it comes to the kingdom. We must always be like Paul and press towards the mark of achievement for the King. We must be striving the furthering the kingdom of Christ. If not then we are not fit for the kingdom! Are you fit for the kingdom?

We'd love to hear from you please comment and we'll be glad to respond, with a word of encouragement!!!
