11 months down…18 days to go….

Eleven months down and just 18 days more and the curtain falls to end 2013.
The door will shut to 2013 and a new door will open to step into 2014.
Some questions we can ask ourselves~
What have we done for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ this year?
His commission to us was,
Mark 16:15
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
He also said in
Matthew 24:14
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
How many lives have we touched and made a difference to?
Have we shared the gospel to those who have not heard about the saving grace of our Lord, this year?
How much have we grown spiritually?
Has our relationship with Jesus Christ our Saviour grown stronger? Do we know Him better than last year?
How much of our time,forgiveness, love, joy, laughter, money, material things, prayer and other good things have we sown in the Kingdom and the lives of others? (For we reap what we sow!)
His greatest commandment was,
Matthew 22:36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
How many of our new year resolutions have we fulfilled?
I think it’s good we took a stock of our life today.
Then we can step into new year with a new vision and get ready to do all that we can for our Lord Jesus Christ, His Kingdom, our family, friends and for those who still need to hear the Word of God! 
So in the next few days let’s…..
 At least share the GOOD NEWS to one person who does not know Jesus. How will they know if we don’t tell them?
 Sow our time, love, prayer for the Kingdom’s extension and in the lives of people who are dear to us, for the lost and for the Nations!
 Get closer to God by spending more time reading HIS WORD, meditating on it, in prayer and listening to HIS voice.
 Take time off everything to sit at HIS feet and receive strength and anointing to step into a new year. A 3 days of fasting (partial or total) and prayer is a good idea!
 Let’s let go of things  of the world that hold on to us and slow us down in our spiritual walk.
 Let’s visit the people we promised we would but never made it.
 Let’s forgive the people who hurt us and forget all that upset us. Let’s try to get right with anybody we have problem relating too, even if that person doesn’t want to forgive and forget, let’s just release all ill feelings and love them, if they still hold bitterness against us let’s not worry about it but walk in freedom.
Luke 6:28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
 Let’s try to complete a part of our pending  new year resolutions (If we had made any!!) the rest we can carry it on to the next years list (if we want to!!).
 Let’s give quality time to do the Lord’s work, for family and friends.
 If the Lord had been urging us to do something and we’ve been putting it off..LET’S DO IT NOW!
The time to stand up for our Lord and Savior JESUS/ YESHUA is NOW.
We have just a short opportunity to witness for CHRIST and live for HIM.
If ever you ought to read the BIBLE, meditate on HIS word, FAST, pray and win souls….it has to be NOW!!
Come on…let’s get going!
Let’s be obedient to HIS Voice if we hear it! 
Hebrews 3:15As has just been said: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”
Heb:3: 7-8: ‘So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion,  during the time of testing in the desert.”
Let’s ask God to break us, remake us and use us for His Glory 
Be Blessed

Integrity and Reputation………

 ❀“Integrity is our record with God.”
PSALM7:8, “The Lord shall judge the peoples; Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, And according to my integrity
within me.”
People we interact with and those around do watch our word and deeds!
 “So reputation is our record with men,”
 1 Timothy 3:7 “He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil’s trap.”
 Esther 9:4, “Mordecai was prominent in the palace; his reputation spread throughout the provinces, and he became more and more powerful.”
‘Even God watches our deeds, words, thoughts and all…
 Revelation 3:1[ To the Church in Sardis ] “To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.”
Brian Koslow  writes”Never make negative comments or spread rumors about anyone. It depreciates their reputation and yours.”
Abraham Lincoln said, “Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.”
Someone said, “If you lose your integrity, you will also lose your identity, your sensitivity and your dignity. Integrity is honesty, modesty and security in all kinds of weather. It should be our priority.”
Baltasar Gracian “A single lie destroys a whole reputation of integrity.”
May the Lord help us to follow Him sincerely and walks in His ways and to be a man/woman of integrity!
 Proverbs 20:7, “The righteous man walks in his integrity;”
Lord may we walk the righteous way, be men and women of integrity and earn a good us to be honest in all we do and say, in our business dealing, manufacture and sell products of good quality and also give a good after sales service. May we give our best in all that we lay our hands on. May we work faithfully for our employers, ever if our boss is not around because Your eyes are on us. Set a guard at our lips O Lord….
In the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord,
Stay blessed,
