Remembering Your Purpose
Part I

Mark 1:38.  "And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth."

Sometines in life we get distracted and begin to focus on things that have no value for the kingdom of God.  Sometimes we get lazy and become relaxed with the work of the kingdom, and take our eyes off what matters most.  We allow our desires, our needs, and our problems to smother the purpose of God in our lives, and we lose visibility of what should be given priority.

We devalue ourselves and instead of becoming fishers of men, we become friends of the world.  Instead of hating what God hates, we take pleasure in what He hates.  Instead of building the kingdom, we find ourselves destroying it with our words, deeds, and thoughts; and there seems to be a "falling away and a walking afar off" going on in our lives, all because we have forgotten our purpose--why we were saved, and the reason for which we came into the world.

Jesus said to his disciples, let us go over to the other towns, for this is the reason that I was sent into this world.  Today, God is asking you a few questions.  Why were you saved?  What is your purpose in His kingdom?  And are you fulfilling your calling?  Or have you fallen away and is walking afar off?  The Bible, said that Peter followed Jesus from afar off at a point, and later denied Him thrice.  When we start following Jesus from a distance, it is a signal that something is radically wrong with our spiritual lives and that we've forgotten our purpose.

Ephesians 2:10.  "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." 

God's purpose for all of us in Christ Jesus is that, we should walk in good works.  Walking in good works is what separates the children of obedience from the children of disobedience.  Walking in good works is another way of saying that we should be holy and without blame before him in love (Ephesians 1:4).  Walking in good works is another way of saying that we should be to the praise of His glory (Ephesians 1:12).  Our lives should extol the name of the Lord, and if it isn't, we are not walking in good works.

Walking in good works encompasses the following:

Ephesians 4:25-32.

  1. Not being lascivious.
  2. Not practicing uncleanness and not being greedy.
  3. Putting away lying.
  4. Being angry and not sinning, nor letting the sun go down on your wrath. 
  5. Not giving place to the devil.
  6. Not stealing, but working so that you will have to give to those in need.
  7. Letting no corrupt communication proceed from your mouth, but only that which edifies, so that it ministers grace to the hearers.
  8. Being kind to one another.
  9. Being tender-hearted enough to forgive others.
We should not forget the time when we were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise.  We should not forget the time when we had no hope, and were without God in the world; but, we should remember that we have now been drawn near to God, by the blood of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:11-13) in order to accomplish the desires that God had for us when we became born-again.  All saints, including Women of Praise, must remember the purposes of God in their lives or else, they will find themselves walking afar off and falling away.  May God richly bless you.  Grace and Peace.



" Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger,
and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice."

Ephesians 4:31


He's With You
by K. Bamkefa

And when the music stops playing
and you turn of the light
Kiss the children goodnight
and pull the cover tight:
You're still faced with reality

Whether you kneel down to pray
or you sit down to cry:
You're still faced with reality
You must go on
Dying is not an option
The children need you

So whether you go gamboling
or limping, it doesn't matter
because He is with you
You are not alone

He's always with you
Caring for you
as a mother cares for her babes
Feeding you
Holding you
Cuddling you
Nurturing you
Loving you
Watching over you

The Good Shepherd
Your God
Your Companion
Your King
Your Friend is always with you



His Banqueting Table

Mark 7:31-37
A Deaf and Dumb Man Healed

"And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis.  v32.  And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him.  v33.  And he took him aside from the multitude, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spit, and touched his tongue:  v34.  And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephatha, that is, Be opened.  v35.  And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain.  v36.  And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much more a great deal they published it; v37.  And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak."

Mark 10:46-42
Bartimaeus Receives His Sight
"And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.  v47.  And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.  v48.  And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.  v49.  And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called.  And they called the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. 
v50.  And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.  v51.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee?  The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.  v52.  And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way."

Jesus and the Widow's Mite
Luke 21. 1-4

"And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and how many that were rich cast in much.  v42.  And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.  v43.  And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:  v44.  For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living."

St John 15: 1-8

"I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.  v2.  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.  v3.  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.  v4.  Abide in me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  v5.  I am the vine, ye are the branches: ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.  v6.  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, into the fire, and they are burned.  v7.  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.  v8.  Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples."
