A Holy Calling

A Holy Calling

A Holy Calling has been destined by the Lord God Almighty for all those who will come to Him through Jesus Christ. 2 Timothy 1:9 says, “for He delivered us and saved us and called us with a holy calling [a calling that leads to a consecrated life—a life set apart—a life of purpose], not because of our works [or because of any personal merit—we could do nothing to earn this], but because of His own purpose and grace [His amazing, undeserved favor] which was granted to us in Christ Jesus before the world began [eternal ages ago],” Likewise, when reading the Bible, we frequently hear of people being called by the Lord God Almighty for a specific ministry or service. There are many examples of people being called by the Lord God in the Bible for His service. Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, Elijah, Elisha, Isaiah, Jeremiah, David, Ezekiel, and many others were called by the Lord God Almighty to be His Prophets. Likewise, Paul was called by the Lord God: “Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God(Romans 1:1; cf. 1 Corinthians 1:1). Likewise, the Old Testament priests were called by the Lord God to their special work (Hebrews 5:4; cf. Exodus 28:1). To be called by the Lord God Almighty is to be chosen by Him for certain purposes. When a person is aware of God’s calling in his/her life and surrenders to it, he/she starts living out the Lord God’s purpose for his/her life.

Isaiah 49:1 says, “Listen to Me, O islands and coastlands,
And pay attention, you peoples from far away.
The Lord has called Me from the womb;
From the body of My mother He has named Me
.”
Jeremiah 1:4-5 says, Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you [and approved of you as My chosen instrument], And before you were born I consecrated you [to Myself as My own]; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Galatians 1:14-18 says, “And [you have heard how] I surpassed many of my contemporaries among my countrymen in [my advanced study of the laws of] Judaism, as I was extremely loyal to the traditions of my ancestors. But when God, who had chosen me and set me apart before I was born, and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles [as the good news—the way of salvation], I did not immediately consult with anyone [for guidance regarding God’s call and His revelation to me]. Nor did I [even] go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia and stayed awhile, and afterward returned once more to Damascus. Then three years later I did go up to Jerusalem to get acquainted with Cephas (Peter), and I stayed with him fifteen days.

A Holy Calling

The Lord God Almighty called the entire nation of Israel to be “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation” (Exodus 19:6). Likewise, the church, redeemed by the blood of the beloved Son of God, Jesus Christ, is called: “You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth” (Revelation 5:10). The Lord God’s calling of Israel was to showcase His salvation to the pagan world. Sadly, Israel rejected that call by following idols and as a result never flourished in the way the Lord God wanted to prosper them. Nevertheless, the Lord God’s call today is to all those redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ to showcase to the world God’s love, mercy, grace, and salvation (Hebrews 12:14; Matthew 5:16). The Lord God is actively involved with His Universe than many people actually think. The Lord God is sovereign over the Universe and all creation as confirmed by Isaiah 46:9–11. Although the Lord God created humankind to be freewill beings and as such possess the freedom to make choices, His choices have already been made (Exodus 33:19; Romans 9:10–18). Likewise, Romans 11:29 says, “God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.”

John 3:16 says, “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.” Behold, we are called by the Lord God to Salvation. In the New Testament, the Greek word ekklesia translated “church” means “a called-out assembly,” or “the called out ones.” God’s call to salvation involves conforming us “to the image of his Son.” Both His election and call to salvation are part of an eternal plan for us that guarantees our inheritance in heaven: “And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified” (Romans 8:29–30). After salvation, we are further called to grow in Christian virtue and serve the Lord God by good works. As a matter of fact, it is this maturation process in the Christian faith that confirms our calling by the Lord God (2 Peter 1:5–10). The Lord God has provided us with Spiritual Gifts to aid us in our call to service in His vineyard. The Holy Spirit distributes the gifts as He sees fit and then calls us into a field of service that makes use of those gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1–11).

Biblical Facts About Being Called By God

Behold, each and every Christian has a calling in his/her life. In fact, we were designed before the foundation of the world to be His workmanship, glorifying Him as we bring forth the fruit He desires.
Ephesians 1:4-5 says, “ just as [in His love] He chose us in Christ [actually selected us for Himself as His own] before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy [that is, consecrated, set apart for Him, purpose-driven] and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined and lovingly planned for us to be adopted to Himself as [His own] children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the kind intention and good pleasure of His will—
Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us].

Generally, the Lord God’s call to service usually begins with a burden for a particular need that relates to His kingdom. Some are called to the political arena where they can contribute to ending things like child abuse, and human trafficking, as well as contributing to the well-being of society in one way or the other for the glory of God. Others are called to be Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers, Worship leaders, Bible translators, or to a host of other avenues that honor and glorify the Lord God (Matthew 23:34; 1 Corinthians 12:27-31; Ephesians 4:11). In this way, each one makes use of the gifts the Spirit has given to bring honor and glory to God’s name. We discover our call to a specific area of service by walking closely with the Lord God, loving Him, obeying Him, and offering ourselves as living sacrifices  (Romans 12:1–2; Colossians 1:10). With time, we’ll grow spiritually and develop sensitivity to the voice of the Lord God. He can confirm His call in any way of His choice. Most of the time, confirmation can come through Scripture, godly counsel, fruitful results, natural gifting, and/or a sense of “rightness” that does not conflict with any of the other Scriptural confirmations.

Responding To God’s Call

When the Lord God calls us, He leads us into an awareness of the call. When we accept His calling on our lives, He prepares and equips us to be successful in His service. In the field, our callings are manifested through the works we are able to accomplish by the strength and gifts that God prepared and equipped us with. For example, a person may begin to have a burden for a particular foreign nation and its people regarding their salvation and spiritual well-being. The burden was placed there by the Lord God as part of His calling. The person makes further research about that nation and enrolls in a missions-focused school as his/her way to prepare for the work ahead. Once on the mission field, he/she is willing to suffer hardships and separation from family and friends because the call of God is his/her greatest motivation and focus. Apostle Paul wrote, “I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:16). Notice that God’s call on Apostle Paul’s life became his motivating force. Acts 9:15–16 says, But the Lord said to him, “Go, for this man is a [deliberately] chosen instrument of Mine, to bear My name before the Gentiles and kings and the sons of Israel; for I will make clear to him how much he must suffer and endure for My name’s sake.”

In answering God’s call, we must obey His instructions in Scripture. By being faithful to the call of obedience, the Lord God can call us to more specific areas as well as increase our responsibility in his vineyard.
Luke 16:10 says, “He who is faithful in a very little thing is also faithful in much; and he who is dishonest in a very little thing is also dishonest in much.
Matthew 25:21 says, “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’
Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”
Hebrews 10:23 says, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.”
Hebrews 12:1-29 says, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. …

Resisting/Refusing to Accept/Surrender to God’s Call

The Bible tells us that Jonah was called by the Lord God but refused to surrender to the call; rather, he ran the other way (Jonah 1:1–3). In spite of that, the Lord God pursued His disobedient servant until Jonah submitted himself to the call. With clear knowledge and understanding of Jonah’s disobedience beforehand, the Lord God had already prepared a big fish to swallow him and spit him out when he was humbled enough to repent (Jonah 1:17—2:1). When Jonah was back on dry land, the word of the Lord came to him for a second time, giving him another chance to obey. Jonah 3:1-3 says, “Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.” Jonah obeyed the word of the Lord and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it.”

It’s without a doubt that the Lord God Almighty could have rescued the Israelites from captivity in Egypt without Moses’ help. But He chose to do it through Moses (Matthew 19:26). Appearing to Moses at the burning bush, the Lord God said, “I have observed the misery of my people in Egypt … and I have come down to rescue them” (Exodus 3:7-8). Surprisingly, the Lord God said, “Therefore, go! I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring My people the Israelites out of Egypt” (Exodus 3:10). Notice that the Lord God had a plan to deliver His people; His plan was Moses. However, in response to God’s call, Moses immediately began making excuses. From the Bible, we can deduce 4 different excuses made by Moses in an attempt not to accept or surrender to God’s call on his life:

1) I am not Adequate for the Task (Lack of Confidence) – Exodus 3:11-12

Exodus 3:11-12 says, “But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?” And God said, “Certainly I will be with you, and this shall be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve and worship God at this mountain.
Who am I,” Moses asked. In fact, he felt inadequate, and he was eventually right to feel that way. By himself, he was inadequate, just as each and every one of us is. Amazingly, the Lord God in reply said to Moses, “certainly I will be with you.” Notice that the deliverance of the Israelites who were held captive in Egypt didn’t depend on the ability of Moses but on the presence, mightiness, power, sovereignty, strength, and sufficiency of the Lord God. From this Scripture, it’s clear that when the Lord God calls people to serve His purpose, He always provides

Fascinatingly, in Exodus 3:11-12, no longer is Moses the bold, strong 40 years old man in Egypt, who could singlehandedly kill an Egyptian slave master and successfully flee away from the Egyptian army unhurt. It seems the last 40 years in the wilderness did erase his confidence. From a prince to a pauper, it’s clear that Moses suffered a serious demotion from royalty to one of Egypt’s most-wanted assassins who was on the run. This probably explains why after all these years of tending sheep in the desert with no prospects of any change on the horizon, Moses had a serious sense of personal inferiority. But what Moses failed to know was that the Lord God had His eyes on him all the time. Behold, the Lord God had chosen him to accomplish a task greater than anything he could have imagined. As a matter of fact, the last 40 years of tending sheep weren’t wasted. Rather, they had taught Moses a lot about leadership, for sheep are renowned for:
1) Wandering away, completely unaware of dangers that may lurk ahead of them.
2) Their crowd mentality, mob mentality, herd mentality, or pack mentality.
3) Their complete dependence on the shepherd to guard and provide for them.

Behold, if Moses could lead sheep, then he could certainly lead people.
Moses had gained field experience in leading the sheep around the Median desert, leading them in finding food and water, and protecting them from wild animals. And as such, we think that Moses was best placed to lead the Israelites out of captivity and into the promised land. Although his objection sounds like an expression of deep humility, it’s not really about humility but lack of confidence, not lack of confidence in self but lack of confidence in the Lord God who called him. Given that the Lord God had seemingly abandoned Moses just when he was intervening to use his strength and position to ameliorate the plight of the Israelites who were held captive in Egypt, could he still trust Him for the future especially as it involved Pharaoh? (Exodus 2:11-22). Absolutely yes, Moses could trust the Lord God for the future and just everything that he needed. God’s reply, “I will be with you” was all that Moses needed. The expression “be with you” indicates intimacy, protection, guidance, provision, and comfort. In other words, everything that Moses would need, the Lord God would provide. Notice that this expression of encouragement in Exodus 3:12a was the same expression of encouragement that Jesus Christ gave to His disciples just before He ascended back to heaven and before they would face tremendous tests of their newfound faith: “Remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20).

2) I don’t Know Enough (A Lack of Knowledge of God) – Exodus 3:13-22

Exodus 3:13-14 says, Then Moses said to God, “Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers (ancestors) has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ What shall I say to them?” God said to Moses, “I Am Who I Am”; and He said, “You shall say this to the Israelites, ‘I Am has sent me to you.’”
Here, we see that Moses was worried about what to say should in case the Israelites challenge his authority and integrity by testing his personal knowledge of God. In fact, Moses was afraid the Israelites might ask him a question he couldn’t answer. Notice that he had to know the correct answer or else his authority would be in doubt. And knowing who he had been and what he had done, the Israelites were more likely to challenge him. Given his track record, they were likely to be suspicious of him.

Behold, if Moses didn’t answer correctly their hypothetical question as to God’s identity, they certainly would not welcome him, talk less of following him. The Lord God replied to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you.” And behold, whenever we say, “I don’t know enough,” “I’m not smart enough,” I’m not capable,” the Lord God Almighty says, but “I AM.” With this in mind, we should always trust Him because He is loving, worthy, faithful, and never fails.

3) People won’t take me Serious (Lack of Credibility with the People) – Exodus 4:1-9

Exodus 4:1 says, Then Moses answered [the Lord] and said, “What if they will not believe me or take seriously what I say? For they may say, ‘The Lord has not appeared to you.’”
The Lord God had already promised Moses, “They will listen to what you say” (Exodus 3:18). Still, Moses protested. Notice that now it’s not a matter of the Israelites questioning who had sent him, but whether they would believe him and obey him. Now it’s more of a matter of personal credibility. Well, Moses certainly had cause to wonder if they would believe him. Remember, his track record wasn’t that great. Indeed, he had earlier attempted to protect the Hebrew slave who was being mistreated by the slave master, but then he had disappeared for up to 40 years. The people were likely to question his whereabouts for all these years, who he had become, and whether or not he would abandon them again.

Amazingly, the Lord God graciously gives him three miraculous signs by which he could prove his credibility and convince the Israelites that he had been sent to them by I Am, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. First, his miraculous rod – when he threw it to the ground, it became a serpent and when he took hold of it again it became a rod again (Exodus 4:2-5). Second, his hand – when he put it into his cloak, it became leprous and when he put it into his cloak again it was immediately restored to perfect health (Exodus 4:6-7). Third, water from the river Nile – when Moses poured it on dry land it would become blood (Exodus 4:9).

4) A Lack of Oral Ability – Exodus 4:10-12

Exodus 4:10-12 says, Then Moses said to the Lord, “Please, Lord, I am not a man of words (eloquent, fluent), neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; for I am slow of speech and tongue.” The Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the mute or the deaf, or the seeing or the blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and will teach you what you shall say.”
Behold, public speaking happens to be a problem for many people. In fact, it’s a daunting task for many people. Moses found himself in a situation whereby he was called by the Lord God to speak to a multitude as vast as the Israelites and to the pharaoh, the very man who wanted to kill him and from whom he had fled many years ago for his life. Again, the Lord God graciously provides comfort and assurance to Moses. Surely, the Creator Himself is able to empower us to speak for Him and to give us the right words to speak at the right time (Luke 12:12).

I am not willing – Exodus 4:13-17

Exodus 4:13-17 says, But he said, “Please my Lord, send the message [of rescue to Israel] by [someone else,] whomever else You will [choose].” Then the anger of the Lord was kindled and burned against Moses; He said, “Is there not your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know that he speaks fluently. Also, he is coming out to meet you, and when he sees you, he will be overjoyed. You must speak to him and put the words in his mouth; I, even I, will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will teach you what you are to do. Moreover, he shall speak for you to the people; he will act as a mouthpiece for you, and you will be as God to him [telling him what I say to you]. You shall take in your hand this staff, with which you shall perform the signs [the miracles which prove I sent you].”

Please, Lord, Send someone else,” Moses said (Exodus 4:13). Indeed, Moses said this despite God’s grace, patience, and provision for his weakness and fears. Behold, this was not an excuse/objection, but it reveals the real issue. Notice that for every excuse/objection Moses had made, the Lord God offered His promise and provision. Upon running out of excuses/objections, Moses revealed what the real issue was: I am not willing or I don’t want to do this or get someone to do it. As a matter of fact, this is usually the real issue; we are simply not willing to step out in faith and obey God’s call and instructions for us. Sadly, there are many other excuses that we make when the Lord God calls us. One might say, “I’m too old” (Moses was 80 years old) or another might say, like Jeremiah, “I am only a youth” (Jeremiah 1:7). In reality, whatever the excuse, it often boils down to lack of trust and an unwillingness to obey the Lord God Almighty.

Can I Reject God’s Calling to be a Minister or His Servant?

If I refuse God’s calling to be a minister or His servant, will I be punished? What are the consequences of refusing God’s calling? Can I reject God’s call on my life and go free? From the previously presented cases of Moses and Jonah, we can draw some very important Biblical conclusions about resisting/rejecting God’s call. But before that, let’s get some Scriptural facts about this topic:
Romans 14:12 says, “So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.
1 Peter 4:5 says, “But they will give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.”
Revelation 20:12 says, “And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done.”
Matthew 12:36-37 says, “I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak, for by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Luke 12:47-48 says, “And that servant who knew his master’s will but did not get ready or act according to his will, will receive a severe beating. But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.

From the Biblical examples of Moses and Jonah, we learn that when the Lord God calls us to be His servants or to minister for Him, it is wisest to obey. Moses refused to be God’s minister in the desert and as a result, God took part of his ministry away and gave it to someone else. Later in Numbers 20, we are told that Moses sinned and as a result, the Lord God did not let him go into the Promised Land. The Lord God gave his ministry to Joshua. With this in mind, it’s clear that the Lord God does not ultimately need you for the accomplishment of His purpose. If you refuse or get involved in sin, the Lord God can possibly give part or all of your ministry to someone else. In the Bible, we see an example of blatant and defiant refusal from Jonah. Jonah was a reluctant prophet who did not enjoy the ministry that the Lord God gave him. Although his ministry was phenomenally successful, he missed the joy of ministry because he refused. Still, notice that the Lord God once again did not let Jonah say no.

Following the calling of Moses and Jonah, is it possible to successfully refuse or reject God’s calling on your life? No. Romans 11:29 says, “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable [for He does not withdraw what He has given, nor does He change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call].” The message of the Scripture is that if the Lord God is calling you to minister for Him, He will not let you say no. He will pursue you until you say “yes.” The question now is, what ministry will you receive and how will you operate it? Scripturally, the Lord God can give part of the ministry that you could have had to someone else. In addition, you may not enjoy the ministry that you end up with, but then at least you are obedient, like Jonah.

Sadly, many people these days are battling in an attempt to refuse or reject God’s call on their lives. As a matter of fact, doing this is fighting a losing battle. Deep down in your heart, you know without a doubt that the Lord God is calling you into His service but you just can’t imagine yourself becoming a minister or His servant. The Lord God has revealed Himself and His calling on your life in different ways. He has confirmed His calling on your life through the Scriptures, godly counsel, spiritual leaders, dreams, visions, fruitful results, natural gifting, and/or a sense of “rightness” that does not conflict with any of the other Scriptural confirmations. Perhaps, you’ve even stopped attending church in an attempt to get your mind off the things of God, but He keeps reminding you of His calling on your life.
Jeremiah 20:9 says, “But if I say I’ll never mention the LORD or speak in his name, his word burns in my heart like a fire. It’s like a fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can’t do it!” Yet, you still keep trying to reject His calling. Trying to reject God’s call on your life as Jonah did is something that will put you in a more or less situation like that of Jonah whereby nothing in your life is moving as planned and on your own, you’ll be moving on towards distress, trouble, disaster and destruction as was the case with Jonah. Repent as Jonah did (Jonah 2), trust and serve the Lord God, “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the LORD, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).

The Secret to answer God’s call for your life – 2 Chronicles 30:8

2 Chronicles 30:8 says, “Now do not stiffen your neck [becoming obstinate] like your fathers, but yield to the LORD and come to His sanctuary which He has sanctified and set apart forever, and serve the LORD your God, so that His burning anger will turn away from you.” When it comes to hearing and answering God’s call for your life, 2 Chronicles 30:8 is the scripture to embrace. It presents a powerful three-step principle on how to be used by God. This three-step principle remains the secret or answer to the question of how you prepare yourself to be used by God Almighty. This three-step principle can be presented with the following three words: Yield, Enter, and Serve. Likewise, Jesus Christ said in Luke 9:23, “Then He said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” By doing these things, you’ll make yourself receptive to God’s call as well as ready to be used by God anywhere and at any time depending on His will. It’s our prayer that after examining these secrets to answer God’s call on your life, you’ll be equipped with what it takes to be successful in doing God’s work thereby winning more souls into His Kingdom.

1. Completely Yield Yourself to God’s Will

Webster’s definition of yielding reads
1) to give up possession of on claim or demand: such as
a: to surrender or relinquish to the physical control of anotherhand over possession of
b: to give (oneself) up to an inclination, temptation, or habit
c: to relinquish one’s possession of (something, such as a position of advantage or point of superiority) yield precedence
d: to surrender or submit (oneself) to another
e: to give up (one’s breath, life, or spirit) and so die
2) to be fruitful or productive. 
Below are characteristics of genuine yielding:

  • Yielding is fully letting God have His way in your life.
  • Genuine yielding prioritizes God’s will over your will.
  • It has to do with completely surrendering yourself to God.
  • True yielding acknowledges the confession; Not MY will but THY will be done in my life.
  • Through yielding, we become profitable to God’s kingdom.
  • Consecration and Sanctification are the two words used in the Bible for yielding.
  • Yielding is setting aside yourself for the sole purpose of God’s use.
  • By yielding ourselves, we are made available for God to use according to His will.
  • Our availability for God’s use depends on how much we give Him.
  • Hence, anyone who gives just a little of themselves to God will be used in a small way but anyone who gives much of themselves and their time to God will be used mightily in ways beyond human understanding.

Galatians 2:20 says, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Luke 9:23 says, And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
Galatians 5:24 says, “And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
John 12:24 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
Matthew 10:38 says, “And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.”
Romans 6:11 says, “So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

2. Enter into God’s Sanctuary

Entering into God’s sanctuary is an important Christian exercise that we can’t afford to omit in answering the question “how do I prepare myself to be used by God?” This is to say that if you are serious about answering God’s call in your life, you’ll need to build a deep relationship or establish a covenant with Him. It is the process of establishing a faithful relationship with God that we refer to as entering His sanctuary. Entering God’s sanctuary is not necessarily going to a Christian assembly which we’ve come to refer to as a Church. It is more of getting into your secret place, where you regularly talk with God in all quietness. Referring to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Mark 6:46 says, “And after He said goodbye to them, He went to the mountain to pray.” Likewise, Luke 5:16 says, “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.

God’s sanctuary can as well be perceived as your heart, a place where His Spirit dwells. This is a call for you to treasure your heart as you strive hard to always keep it clean so that God’s spirit won’t be grieved. You do this by paying attention to what proceeds forth from your heart thereby making sure that it is in line with the will of God. In the same light, you should pay attention and align your thoughts, words, and actions according to the will of God. Remember to fill your heart with the Love of God and that of your neighbor. By so doing, you’ll reflect the loving nature of God Almighty thereby gaining mercy and favor on His side.
Matthew 5:8 says, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
Psalm 51:10 says, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.

Acts 15:9 says, “And he made no distinction between us and them, having cleansed their hearts by faith.

Matthew 15:11 says, “It is not what goes into the mouth of a man that defiles and dishonors him, but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles and dishonors him.”
Below are some of the spiritual exercises that will grow your relationship with God and maintain you in His sanctuary:

a. Praying without ceasing

As Christians, we are called to pray at all times and pray without ceasing. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, started with prayers and ended with prayers. It is without a doubt that a prayerful life was the key to achieving success in the Divine Mission which was attributed to Him by God the Father. It is in the light of following His footsteps that we ought to pray at all times and pray without ceasing. If you expect God to use you, you must value the aspect of regularly communicating with Him. It is through a prayerful life that you will identify what God wants you to do. Prayer is a two-sided communication line – that is, as you speak to God, He is also speaking to you. Hence, you should learn to listen and hear from God because He is always saying something.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 says, “Pray without ceasing,
Mark 6:46 says, “And after He said goodbye to them, He went to the mountain to pray.
Luke 5:16 says, “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.

Matthew 6:9-13 says, Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

b. Regularly reading and meditating on your Bible

The Bible is an authoritative means through which God speaks, teaches, and confirms His Holy Will to mankind. It is one of the greatest means of communication with God. The Bible teaches us about the great things which God has done, those that He is still doing, and those that He will do in times to come. God’s word is to our spirit what food is to our body. Failure to hear God’s word is likely to lead to what we refer to as spiritual starvation. By daily and regularly studying God’s word, you are equipped with what it takes to do His will as well as minister it to others.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.”
Matthew 4:4 says, But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Psalm 119:9 says, “How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word.
Psalm 19:7-11 says, “The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
Proverbs 4:20-23 says, “My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.
Jeremiah 15:16 says, “Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name, O Lord, God of hosts.
James 1:22 says, “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”
Matthew 7:24 says, “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.

c. Thanksgiving to God at all times

It is our Christian duty to be thankful to God at all times and in all circumstances. That is, we are to thank God for everything that comes our way – whether good or bad. We do this because God is always in control; nothing happens without His knowledge. Hence, we can say without a doubt that God is aware of all things that are happening to us. In short, He is in total control of all things that come our way. That’s why we should not dwell our hearts on worries. Always remember that God is working and turning all things for the good of His children. Let’s support this message by reading from Jeremiah 29:11 – “I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.”

1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
Psalm 107:1 says, “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!
Psalm 7:17 says, “I will give to the Lord the thanks due to his righteousness, and I will sing praise to the name of the Lord, the Most High.”
Ephesians 5:20 says, “Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Colossians 3:15 says, “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.”
James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”
Psalm 100:1-5 says, “A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.

d. Singing praises to God

Offering praises to God is more of an outer expression of the inward joy and happiness in one’s heart. This is generally done in acknowledgment of God’s goodness, immeasurable and unconditional love. True praise is a spontaneous action that is mental, physical, emotional, and highly verbal. In reading across the Bible, we hear more of the vocalization of praise than dances or other expressions of praise. Remember that it was the vocal praise that brought down the great walls of Jericho. Hence, it is without a doubt that vocal praise moves God into action as He locates His people in mercy and favor. The Greek word for praise is “Story.” The moment something proclaims the work of God, it is offering praise. In simple terms, praise is telling a story of God’s goodness, might, power, love, mercy, compassion, and sovereignty.

Psalm 69:30 says, “I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.”
Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Psalm 100:1-2 says, “A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

Ephesians 5:19 says, “Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,
Psalm 147:1 says, “Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.”
James 5:13 says, “Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.”
Acts 16:25 says, “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them,”
Psalm 104:33 says, “I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being.
Psalm 150:1-6 says, “Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! …

e. Worship

Worship is a spiritual exercise being carried out in the presence of God Almighty. It is more of a personal experience with God, the Father of Creation. Since it requires a personal experience with God, you’ll need to have been baptized (filled) with the Holy Ghost in order to genuinely worship God for who He is. Remember the words of Jesus Christ when He said that all those who worship God MUST do so in Spirit and Truth. In worship, the Holy Spirit fills us with what is necessary to truly acknowledge God for who He is. It provides us with the necessary reasons to genuinely worship God in spirit and truth. Genuine worship is not necessarily due to what God has done but for who He is. This is more likely when the Holy Spirit renews your mind and convinces you of God’s unfailing, unconditional, and immeasurable love. You can also learn what the Bible says about Prophetic Worship.

John 4:23 says, “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.”
John 4:24 says, “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.
Psalm 95:6 says, “Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
Romans 12:1 says, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Luke 4:8 says, And Jesus answered him, “It is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.’”
Psalm 29:2 – “Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.”
Psalm 96:9 says, “Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth!
Psalm 99:5 says, “Exalt the Lord our God; worship at his footstool! Holy is he!
Psalm 66:4 says, “All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.” Selah
Matthew 4:10 says, Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’”

f. Praying in the Spirit

Note that praying in the spirit is different from your normal or daily prayer routine. Here, you willingly allow the Holy Spirit to pray through you with its own words. Praying in the spirit can involve praying in tongues, prophesying into the air, and carrying out an intercessory prayer. When praying in the spirit, you speak many things which you would not speak under normal prayers. That is, the Spirit prays for those things through you that you normally should have prayed for but you are not aware of. At times, we lack words to pray or simply do not know how to pray. However, as we yield to praying in the spirit, the Spirit of God within us prays for all those things we ought to pray for and also intercedes on our behalf and that of our close ones before God. You can as well read the following: Understanding how praying in tongues opens supernatural dimensions and How to be filled with the Holy Spirit

Romans 8:26-27 says, “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.”
Ephesians 6:18 says, “Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,”
Jude 1:20 says, “But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit,
1 Corinthians 14:15 says, “What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.
Colossians 3:14-17 says, “And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

3. Serve the Lord your God

Behold, serving God is an act of voluntary service. There are many ways through which you can serve God. You can serve God when you minister to Him in worship, showing Him homage, and when you witness His love, sovereignty, goodness, mercy, favor, and faithfulness to others. Note that your greatest service to God Almighty is spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ which is a call for mankind to sincerely repent from their sins and turn to God. There are also many places in which you can serve God in Spirit and Truth. You can serve God in your local Christian assembly, you can serve God in a private location, and you can serve God in a different country. In short, you can serve God anywhere and at any time according to His will. Your service to God is reflected by certain characters and values in your life:

a. Holiness

Holiness is one of the key elements in answering the question of “how do I prepare myself to be used by God?” It is the power of God within you that strengthens and guides you to walk no longer in sin. This power is achieved through Christ by being faithful to His teachings. Jesus Christ is the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the faithful thereby making them Holy before God. In Christ, we’ve all been given the power to overcome our corrupted flesh and reflect God’s righteous nature. Holiness is what causes a separation to manifest. A genuine follower of Christ who strives for righteousness on daily basis appears different in thoughts, words, and actions as compared to those who claim just by mouth to be of Christ. He/she who becomes righteous in Christ is easily detected by a change in morals, thoughts, words, and actions.

Leviticus 20:26 says, “You shall be holy to me, for I the Lord am holy and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be mine.
1 Samuel 2:2 says, “There is none holy like the Lord; there is none besides you; there is no rock like our God.
1 Thessalonians 4:7 says, “For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.
1 Peter 1:15-16 says, “But as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.
Hebrews 12:14 says, “Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.”
2 Corinthians 7:1 says, “Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.
Romans 6:22 says, “But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life.
Matthew 5:48 says, “You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Leviticus 19:2 says, “Speak to all the congregation of the people of Israel and say to them, You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.”

b. Ministry

A person can as well serve God by working in the ministry. We can’t afford to omit ministry work when answering the question of how to prepare yourself to be used by God. Behold brethren, let no one deceive you for we have all been called into ministry in the presence of God. Indeed, we’ve been called as ministers, ministers of love, reconciliation, mercy, truth, and faithfulness to God Almighty. We’ve all been commissioned by Christ to spread the Good News of Repentance and Life Everlasting to the four corners of the World thereby restoring to God all His lost children. You can also serve God by joining local Christian ministries in your assembly. Here, you can willingly serve as a Minister, Usher, Deacon, Pastor, Evangelist, Teacher, Apostle, Prophet, or any other ministry that is available and that God has called and anointed you in it.

Ephesians 4:11-13 says, “And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,
1 Corinthians 12:27-31 says, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.
2 Timothy 2:15 says, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
2 Corinthians 6:3-10 says, “We put no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, but as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: by great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love; by truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; …
Romans 10:13-15 says, For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

c. Witnessing

Still, on how to prepare yourself to be used by God, we’ll say that witnessing is a great way to serve God in Spirit and Truth. This is more of a personal practice that does not necessarily require that you teach, preach or share out tracks. In simple terms, witnessing is all about telling others about the mighty things that God has done in your life out of His unfailing, unconditional, faithful, and immeasurable love. A witness is someone who has clearly seen or heard about something he/she can give a consistent account of how it took place. Here, the person gives his/her witness based on what they say or heard thereby persuading the audience to believe. In our case, when you witness, you are giving a testimony of Jesus Christ, the savior of the World.

Mark 16:15 says, “And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.
1 Peter 3:15 says, “But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,
Jeremiah 1:7-8But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the Lord.”
Matthew 5:14-16 – “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Acts 1:8 says, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Romans 1:16 says, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”

d. Loving

Loving is the greatest way of serving God. Christ spoke through His Apostles saying that “anyone who does not love does not know God.” This is because God has a loving nature. An objective look across the Bible will reveal that it revolves around Love – that is the love of God and the love of your neighbor. It is for this reason that some have gone to the very extent of calling the Bible “God’s Love Letter” to mankind. For God so loved the world that He sent His beloved Son, Jesus Christ so that anyone who hears, believes, and obeys his teachings will not die but have everlasting life in Heaven (John 3:16). Jesus Christ did not come to condemn the World but to invite everyone to Sincerely Repent and start obeying the Commands of God.

Love is a lasting value in the Kingdom of God. Christ Himself summarized the Law of Moses and the teachings of the Prophets into loving God with all your being and loving your neighbor as you love yourself. Through love, we clearly reflect the nature of God and Jesus’ mark of ownership. It is Jesus’ command that we love our neighbors as we love ourselves (Mark 12:29-31; John 15:12). In this way, we will please God in the things that we do. Hence, we should never stop loving or get tired of loving. Behold, he/she who does not love does not know God just as the scriptures point out (1 John 4:7-8). On the other hand, he who loves is one who knows God, and one who knows God will live forever in His presence. When we say we Love God or our neighbor, our thoughts, words, and actions must reflect this saying.
Mark 12:29-31 says, Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
John 15:12 says, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
1 John 4:7-8 says, “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

A Holy Calling

2 Timothy 1:9 – “for He delivered us and saved us and called us with a holy calling [a calling that leads to a consecrated life—a life set apart—a life of purpose], not because of our works [or because of any personal merit—we could do nothing to earn this], but because of His own purpose and grace [His amazing, undeserved favor] which was granted to us in Christ Jesus before the world began [eternal ages ago],”

Ephesians 4:11-13 says, “And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,

Mark 16:15-18 – “He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.””

Matthew 5:14-16 – “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.

    100 Christian Prompts For Adoring God

    Discover100 Christian Prompts For Adoring God. By definition, Adoration is the profound love and respect paid to someone we revere, chiefly as it pertains to a divine being. Notice that the noun adoration comes from the Latin word adorationem, which means “worship,” particularly in a religious way. When it comes to veneration, adoration and worship are synonymous. Biblically, adoration is required of any and all who profess to know the Lord God Almighty. Adoration is akin to paying homage or worship. Several versions of the New Testament do not make use of the word adoration in reference to our worship of God, but they translate the Greek word proskuneó as “worship.” Proskuneó means “to bow before or to revere”; the root word means “to kiss,” so the whole idea of proskuneó is “to kiss the ground in reverence before someone.”

    When the three (3) wise men from the East arrived in Jerusalem and inquired as to the whereabouts of the newborn King, they said to Herod, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him” (Matthew 2:2). Notice here that the word translated “worship” is the word proskuneó, which clearly communicates an adoration and reverence for the Son of God. In the same light, the refrain of the Christmas hymn “O Come, All Ye Faithful” encourages and instructs us to follow the example of the 3 wise men with a threefold iteration:
    O come, let us adore Him;
    O come, let us adore Him;
    O come, let us adore Him, Christ, the Lord!

    What The Scriptures Say About Adoration

    In the Old Testament of the Bible, the word that most often refers to adoration is the Hebrew word shachah, which is also translated as “worship.” In truth, such adoration is forbidden to offer to idols (Psalm 97:7; Leviticus 26:1). The Lord God Almighty is a jealous God (Exodus 20:5; Deuteronomy 4:24), as a loving husband is jealous of his bride’s affections toward other men. It’s important for us to understand that the Lord God made us for Himself and desires that all our worshipful adoration be directed to Him alone. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, said that the Father is looking for people who will adore Him as we were designed to do.
    Jesus Christ said, “true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:23–24). The word for “worship” in these verses can as well be translated as “adore.”

    Although related, adoration differs from praise. Adoration, or worship, should be reserved for the Lord God Almighty alone (Luke 4:8). While praise can be a part of adoration, adoration actually goes beyond praise. Adoration, or worship, gets to the heart of who we are. To truly worship the Lord God Almighty, we must let go of our self-worship. Likewise, we must be willing to humble ourselves before the Lord God, surrender every part of our lives to His control, and deeply adore Him for Who He Truly Is, not just what He has done. Hebrews 12:28–29 reminds us of Deuteronomy 4:24: “Let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.’” That consuming fire strips us of self-gratification, pride, and self-consciousness. True worship means to lose ourselves in the adoration of another. This leaves us with only the thought of the majesty and glory of the one we adore. When we truly adore the Lord God Almighty, our daily activities become acts of worship and pleasing to Him.

    Worship, Adoration, and Praise

    Revelation 5:13 says, “And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!
    Ephesians 5:19-20 says, “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
    Behold, worship is our offering to God of our recognition that He is God. Having created Heaven and earth together with everything in them, only the Lord God Almighty deserves our greatest respect. We show this respect in worship. It’s difficult to distinguish worship from adoration. In terms of veneration, adoration and worship are synonymous. Adoration is the expression of our love for God, in thoughts, words, and actions. In the context of worship, adoration is the expression of our sincere love for the Lord God Almighty in a fitting manner of worship, in the attitudes we display during the worship service, in the method by which we raise our voices to sing as well as pray, in our devotedness to the exhortation of the sermon.

    Notice that adoration may be offered in settings other than the worship service, but it should always be most prominent during the worship service. In fact, adoration is the fulfillment of the greatest commandment. In Matthew 22:37, Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. Praise is the outgrowth of faith, adoration, and worship – as well as of confession. Praise is the act of expressing our love and respect and esteem for the Lord God in the form of words and songs. Psalms 150:2 says, “Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!” It’s important for us to give God the glory and honor that He deserves from us, His creatures. In the Old Testament, before the people crossed into the promised land, and before Moses’ death, the great leader redelivers the law to the Israelites. In delivering this Divinely Inspired Message, Moses provides the source of the greatest commandment, as well as clearly providing a picture of what the commandment should mean in practice.
    Deuteronomy 6:4-9 says “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
    Psalm 100:1-5 says, “Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.”
    Behold, when it comes to worshipping or adoring God, it’s important for us to understand that worship is about HOW, not where or why. The HOW is to worship God for Who He Truly Is, in the perfect manner He has prescribed. John 4:23-24 says, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

    Powerful and Anointed Prayers of Adoration to the Lord God Almighty

    1) An Adoration Prayer for God’s Majesty (Psalm 8)

    We find an adoration prayer for God’s majesty in Psalm 8 offered by David. David’s adoration prayer declares the Lord God Almighty as the Maker of heaven and earth. David subsequently compares humans to the majesty of God. David prays in Psalm 8:
    O Lord, our Lord,
     how majestic is your name in all the earth!
    You have set your glory above the heavens.
     Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
    you have established strength because of your foes,
     to still the enemy and the avenger.
    When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
     the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
    what is man that you are mindful of him,
     and the son of man that you care for him?
    Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
     and crowned him with glory and honor.
    You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
     you have put all things under his feet,

    all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
     whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
    O Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

    2) An Adoration Prayer for God’s Rescue and Protection (Psalm 18)

    We find an adoration prayer for God’s rescue and protection offered by David in Psalm 18. David declares God as his Rescuer in an adoration prayer that praises God’s ability to protect His own. Throughout the first three verses, David proclaims his deep love for the Lord God Almighty for His many rescues. David prays in Psalm 18:1-3:
    I love you, O Lord, my strength.
    The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
     my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
     my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
     I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,
     and I am saved from my enemies.

    In Psalm 18:30-31, after describing God’s rescue, David clearly describes the danger he was in as he was being hunted by men:
    This God—his way is perfect;
    the Word of the Lord proves true;
    he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.
    For who is God, but the Lord?
    And who is a rock, except our God?

    David goes on to declare in Psalm 18:46-49:
    The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock,
        and exalted be the God of my salvation—
    the God who gave me vengeance
        and subdued peoples under me,
    who rescued me from my enemies;
        yes, you exalted me above those who rose against me;
        you delivered me from the man of violence.
    For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations,
        and sing to your name
    .”

    3) An Adoration Prayer about God’s Powerful Voice (Psalm 29).

    We find an adoration prayer about God’s powerful voice offered by David in Psalm 29. In this adoration prayer, David calls all heaven and earth to praise God for the power and wonder of His voice:
    Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
        ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
    Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
        worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.
    The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
        the God of glory thunders,
        the Lord, over many waters.
    The voice of the Lord is powerful;
        the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
    The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
        the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
    He makes Lebanon to skip like a calf,
        and Sirion like a young wild ox.
    The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
    The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
        the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
    The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth[c]
        and strips the forests bare,
        and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
    The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
        the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.

        and praise your name forever and ever.
    Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
        and his greatness is unsearchable.
    One generation shall commend your works to another,
        and shall declare your mighty acts.
    On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
        and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
    They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
        and I will declare your greatness.
    They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
        and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
    The Lord is gracious and merciful,
        slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

        and tell of your power,
    to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds,
        and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
    Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
        and your dominion endures throughout all generations.
    [The Lord is faithful in all his words
        and kind in all his works.]

        and raises up all who are bowed down.
    The eyes of all look to you,
        and you give them their food in due season.

    Be gracious to me, O Lord,
        for to you do I cry all the day.
    Gladden the soul of your servant,
        for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
    For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,
        abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
    Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
        listen to my plea for grace.
    In the day of my trouble I call upon you,
        for you answer me.
    There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
        nor are there any works like yours.
    All the nations you have made shall come
        and worship before you, O Lord,
        and shall glorify your name.
    For you are great and do wondrous things;
        you alone are God.
    Teach me your way, O Lord,
        that I may walk in your truth;
        unite my heart to fear your name.
    I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
        and I will glorify your name forever.
    For great is your steadfast love toward me;
        you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
    O God, insolent men have risen up against me;
        a band of ruthless men seeks my life,
        and they do not set you before them.
    But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,
        slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
    Turn to me and be gracious to me;
        give your strength to your servant,
        and save the son of your maidservant.
    Show me a sign of your favor,
        that those who hate me may see and be put to shame

    6) An Adoration Prayer Praising God during Good and Bad Times (Psalm 34)

    We find an adoration prayer praising God during good and bad times in Psalm 34 offered by David. As faithful children of God, it’s our duty to give Him praise at all times because He does all things for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28). David prays in Psalm 34:
    I will bless the Lord at all times;
        his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
    My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
        let the humble hear and be glad.
    Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
        and let us exalt his name together!
    I sought the Lord, and he answered me
        and delivered me from all my fears.
    Those who look to him are radiant,
        and their faces shall never be ashamed.
    This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
        and saved him out of all his troubles.
    The angel of the Lord encamps
        around those who fear him, and delivers them.
    Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
        Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
    Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
        for those who fear him have no lack!
    The young lions suffer want and hunger;
        but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
    Come, O children, listen to me;
        I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
    What man is there who desires life
        and loves many days, that he may see good?
    Keep your tongue from evil
        and your lips from speaking deceit.
    Turn away from evil and do good;
        seek peace and pursue it.
    The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
        and his ears toward their cry.
    The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
        to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
    When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
        and delivers them out of all their troubles.
    The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
        and saves the crushed in spirit.
    Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
        but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
    He keeps all his bones;
        not one of them is broken.
    Affliction will slay the wicked,
        and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
    The Lord redeems the life of his servants;
        none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.

    Worship Adoration And Praise Quotes From The Bible

    Discover Worship, Adoration And Praise Quotes From The Bible. By definition, Adoration is the profound love and respect paid to someone we revere, chiefly as it pertains to a divine being. Notice that the noun adoration comes from the Latin word adorationem, which means “worship,” particularly in a religious way. When it comes to veneration, adoration and worship are synonymous. Biblically, adoration is required of any and all who profess to know the Lord God Almighty. Adoration is akin to paying homage or worship. Several versions of the New Testament do not make use of the word adoration in reference to our worship of God, but they translate the Greek word proskuneó as “worship.” Proskuneó means “to bow before or to revere”; the root word means “to kiss,” so the whole idea of proskuneó is “to kiss the ground in reverence before someone.”

    When the three (3) wise men from the East arrived in Jerusalem and inquired as to the whereabouts of the newborn King, they said to Herod, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him” (Matthew 2:2). Notice here that the word translated “worship” is the word proskuneó, which clearly communicates an adoration and reverence for the Son of God. In the same light, the refrain of the Christmas hymn “O Come, All Ye Faithful” encourages and instructs us to follow the example of the 3 wise men with a threefold iteration:
    O come, let us adore Him;
    O come, let us adore Him;
    O come, let us adore Him, Christ, the Lord!

    What The Scriptures Say About Adoration

    In the Old Testament of the Bible, the word that most often refers to adoration is the Hebrew word shachah, which is also translated as “worship.” In truth, such adoration is forbidden to offer to idols (Psalm 97:7; Leviticus 26:1). The Lord God Almighty is a jealous God (Exodus 20:5; Deuteronomy 4:24), as a loving husband is jealous of his bride’s affections toward other men. It’s important for us to understand that the Lord God made us for Himself and desires that all our worshipful adoration be directed to Him alone. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, said that the Father is looking for people who will adore Him as we were designed to do.
    Jesus Christ said, “true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:23–24). The word for “worship” in these verses can as well be translated as “adore.”

    Although related, adoration differs from praise. Adoration, or worship, should be reserved for the Lord God Almighty alone (Luke 4:8). While praise can be a part of adoration, adoration actually goes beyond praise. Adoration, or worship, gets to the heart of who we are. To truly worship the Lord God Almighty, we must let go of our self-worship. Likewise, we must be willing to humble ourselves before the Lord God, surrender every part of our lives to His control, and deeply adore Him for Who He Truly Is, not just what He has done. Hebrews 12:28–29 reminds us of Deuteronomy 4:24: “Let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.’” That consuming fire strips us of self-gratification, pride, and self-consciousness. True worship means to lose ourselves in the adoration of another. This leaves us with only the thought of the majesty and glory of the one we adore. When we truly adore the Lord God Almighty, our daily activities become acts of worship and pleasing to Him.

    Worship, Adoration, and Praise

    Revelation 5:13 says, “And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!
    Ephesians 5:19-20 says, “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
    Behold, worship is our offering to God of our recognition that He is God. Having created Heaven and earth together with everything in them, only the Lord God Almighty deserves our greatest respect. We show this respect in worship. It’s difficult to distinguish worship from adoration. In terms of veneration, adoration and worship are synonymous. Adoration is the expression of our love for God, in thoughts, words, and actions. In the context of worship, adoration is the expression of our sincere love for the Lord God Almighty in a fitting manner of worship, in the attitudes we display during the worship service, in the method by which we raise our voices to sing as well as pray, in our devotedness to the exhortation of the sermon.

    Notice that adoration may be offered in settings other than the worship service, but it should always be most prominent during the worship service. In fact, adoration is the fulfillment of the greatest commandment. In Matthew 22:37, Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. Praise is the outgrowth of faith, adoration, and worship – as well as of confession. Praise is the act of expressing our love and respect and esteem for the Lord God in the form of words and songs. Psalms 150:2 says, “Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!” It’s important for us to give God the glory and honor that He deserves from us, His creatures. In the Old Testament, before the people crossed into the promised land, and before Moses’ death, the great leader redelivers the law to the Israelites. In delivering this Divinely Inspired Message, Moses provides the source of the greatest commandment, as well as clearly providing a picture of what the commandment should mean in practice.
    Deuteronomy 6:4-9 says “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
    Psalm 100:1-5 says, “Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.”
    Behold, when it comes to worshipping or adoring God, it’s important for us to understand that worship is about HOW, not where or why. The HOW is to worship God for Who He Truly Is, in the perfect manner He has prescribed. John 4:23-24 says, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

    Powerful and Anointed Prayers of Adoration to the Lord God Almighty

    1) An Adoration Prayer for God’s Majesty (Psalm 8)

    We find an adoration prayer for God’s majesty in Psalm 8 offered by David. David’s adoration prayer declares the Lord God Almighty as the Maker of heaven and earth. David subsequently compares humans to the majesty of God. David prays in Psalm 8:
    O Lord, our Lord,
     how majestic is your name in all the earth!
    You have set your glory above the heavens.
     Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
    you have established strength because of your foes,
     to still the enemy and the avenger.
    When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
     the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
    what is man that you are mindful of him,
     and the son of man that you care for him?
    Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
     and crowned him with glory and honor.
    You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
     you have put all things under his feet,

    all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
     whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
    O Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

    2) An Adoration Prayer for God’s Rescue and Protection (Psalm 18)

    We find an adoration prayer for God’s rescue and protection offered by David in Psalm 18. David declares God as his Rescuer in an adoration prayer that praises God’s ability to protect His own. Throughout the first three verses, David proclaims his deep love for the Lord God Almighty for His many rescues. David prays in Psalm 18:1-3:
    I love you, O Lord, my strength.
    The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
     my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
     my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
     I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,
     and I am saved from my enemies.

    In Psalm 18:30-31, after describing God’s rescue, David clearly describes the danger he was in as he was being hunted by men:
    This God—his way is perfect;
    the Word of the Lord proves true;
    he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.
    For who is God, but the Lord?
    And who is a rock, except our God?

    David goes on to declare in Psalm 18:46-49:
    The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock,
        and exalted be the God of my salvation—
    the God who gave me vengeance
        and subdued peoples under me,
    who rescued me from my enemies;
        yes, you exalted me above those who rose against me;
        you delivered me from the man of violence.
    For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations,
        and sing to your name
    .”

    3) An Adoration Prayer about God’s Powerful Voice (Psalm 29).

    We find an adoration prayer about God’s powerful voice offered by David in Psalm 29. In this adoration prayer, David calls all heaven and earth to praise God for the power and wonder of His voice:
    Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
        ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
    Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
        worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.
    The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
        the God of glory thunders,
        the Lord, over many waters.
    The voice of the Lord is powerful;
        the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
    The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
        the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
    He makes Lebanon to skip like a calf,
        and Sirion like a young wild ox.
    The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
    The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
        the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
    The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth[c]
        and strips the forests bare,
        and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
    The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
        the Lord sits enthroned as king forever.
    May the Lord give strength to his people!
        May the Lord bless his people with peace!

    4) An Adoration Prayer for God’s Provision (Psalm 145)

    We find an adoration prayer for God’s provision in Psalm 145 offered by David. David prays in Psalm 145:
    I will extol you, my God and King,
        and bless your name forever and ever.
    Every day I will bless you
        and praise your name forever and ever.
    Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
        and his greatness is unsearchable.
    One generation shall commend your works to another,
        and shall declare your mighty acts.
    On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
        and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
    They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
        and I will declare your greatness.
    They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
        and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
    The Lord is gracious and merciful,
        slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
    The Lord is good to all,
        and his mercy is over all that he has made.
    All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
        and all your saints shall bless you!
    They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom
        and tell of your power,
    to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds,
        and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
    Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
        and your dominion endures throughout all generations.
    [The Lord is faithful in all his words
        and kind in all his works.]
    The Lord upholds all who are falling
        and raises up all who are bowed down.
    The eyes of all look to you,
        and you give them their food in due season.
    You open your hand;
        you satisfy the desire of every living thing.
    The Lord is righteous in all his ways
        and kind in all his works.
    The Lord is near to all who call on him,
        to all who call on him in truth.
    He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
        he also hears their cry and saves them.
    The Lord preserves all who love him,
        but all the wicked he will destroy.

    Incline your ear, O Lord, and answer me,
        for I am poor and needy.
    Preserve my life, for I am godly;
        save your servant, who trusts in you—you are my God.
    Be gracious to me, O Lord,
        for to you do I cry all the day.
    Gladden the soul of your servant,
        for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
    For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,
        abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.
    Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer;
        listen to my plea for grace.
    In the day of my trouble I call upon you,
        for you answer me.
    There is none like you among the gods, O Lord,
        nor are there any works like yours.
    All the nations you have made shall come
        and worship before you, O Lord,
        and shall glorify your name.
    For you are great and do wondrous things;
        you alone are God.
    Teach me your way, O Lord,
        that I may walk in your truth;
        unite my heart to fear your name.
    I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart,
        and I will glorify your name forever.
    For great is your steadfast love toward me;
        you have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol.
    O God, insolent men have risen up against me;
        a band of ruthless men seeks my life,
        and they do not set you before them.
    But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious,
        slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.
    Turn to me and be gracious to me;
        give your strength to your servant,
        and save the son of your maidservant.
    Show me a sign of your favor,
        that those who hate me may see and be put to shame
        because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.

    6) An Adoration Prayer Praising God during Good and Bad Times (Psalm 34)

    We find an adoration prayer praising God during good and bad times in Psalm 34 offered by David. As faithful children of God, it’s our duty to give Him praise at all times because He does all things for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28). David prays in Psalm 34:
    I will bless the Lord at all times;
        his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
    My soul makes its boast in the Lord;
        let the humble hear and be glad.
    Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
        and let us exalt his name together!
    I sought the Lord, and he answered me
        and delivered me from all my fears.
    Those who look to him are radiant,
        and their faces shall never be ashamed.
    This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
        and saved him out of all his troubles.
    The angel of the Lord encamps
        around those who fear him, and delivers them.
    Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
        Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
    Oh, fear the Lord, you his saints,
        for those who fear him have no lack!
    The young lions suffer want and hunger;
        but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
    Come, O children, listen to me;
        I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
    What man is there who desires life
        and loves many days, that he may see good?
    Keep your tongue from evil
        and your lips from speaking deceit.
    Turn away from evil and do good;
        seek peace and pursue it.
    The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
        and his ears toward their cry.
    The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
        to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
    When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
        and delivers them out of all their troubles.
    The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
        and saves the crushed in spirit.
    Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
        but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
    He keeps all his bones;
        not one of them is broken.
    Affliction will slay the wicked,
        and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
    The Lord redeems the life of his servants;
        none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.

    What Is A Good Quote About Kindness?

    What Is A Good Quote About Kindness

    What Is A Good Quote About Kindness? In today’s world of entitlement, self-promotion, and impersonal, virtual relationships, many people have forgotten what it means to be kind to one another. However, as for Christians, who are called to become like Jesus Christ, the Bible says, “Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you” (Ephesians 4:31–32). Apostle Paul told the Ephesians to put away six sinful attitudes and behaviors: bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, slander, and malice. Bitterness is an inward frame of mind that refuses to forgive. Here, wrath and anger are combined to refer to violent outbreaks of uncontrolled human outrage. Clamor speaks of shouting and loud quarreling. Slander means evil speaking, and the Greek word translated as “malice” means wickedness.

    As followers of Jesus Christ, we are to keep away bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and malice from our relationships with others. In place of these things, disciples of Jesus Christ are to put on kindness, tenderheartedness, and forgiveness. The original Greek phrase rendered “be kind to one another” literally means “keep on becoming kind toward one another.” The graciousness of God, which is also found in Jesus Christ, teaches us what it means to be kind to one another. Because God acts kindly toward us, we are to behave the same way toward others. And because Jesus Christ offered grace as the basis for our forgiveness, so too should we. Thus, being kind to one another is not optional for Christians (Micah 6:8; Zechariah 7:9; 1 Peter 3:8).

    Love brings about kindness. Jesus Christ in John 13:34 says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” Walking in love means following the example of Jesus Christ. Apostle Paul in Ephesians 5:1-2 says, “imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.” Likewise, Apostle Paul reiterated in Colossians 3:12-14: “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”

    Apostle Paul reiterated the teaching on kindness to the Colossians by listing several virtues that believers in Christ are to clothe themselves with or “put on”: compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience, forgiveness, and love. It’s clear that these all have to do with personal relationships. It is worth noting that compassion and kindness are closely linked. Compassion can be defined as “heartfelt sympathy or empathy toward those who are suffering or in need.” Likewise, kindness is the helpful spirit that sees someone else in need and is motivated to respond through good deeds. Kindness is the tangible action that results from compassion. Note that kindness goes beyond mere words, it translates into helping and serving one another (Acts 28:2).

    More on what you should know about kindness

    Kindness is one of the attributes of the Almighty God (Titus 3:4), one of the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22), and one of the proofs of a faithful minister of the Holy Gospel (2 Corinthians 6:6). As Christians, embracing kindheartedness or being kind to one another is how we show love: “Love is patient, love is kind” (1 Corinthians 13:4). Being kind to one another involves caring for others, bearing their burdens, and valuing them as we value ourselves (Romans 12:10; Galatians 6:2; Philippians 2:3). Kindness motivates us to speak life and encouragement to others instead of death and discouragement (Proverbs 16:24; Ephesians 4:29; 1 Thessalonians 5:11). Likewise, expressing support and affirmation instead of condemnation is characteristic of kindness (Proverbs 15:4).

    Being kind to one another means a lot. Being kindhearted or showing kindness to one another leads us to forgive rather than blame, to show mercy rather than hatred, and to care rather than despise. Kindheartedness is reflected in God’s Holy nature. This statement is best explained in God’s supreme act of kindness that provided for our forgiveness and salvation when He sent His Son to die for us on the cross: “Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?” (Romans 2:4; see also Romans 11:22, and Titus 3:4–7). As God’s children, we are to reflect His nature of love and kindness to one another.

    What does the Bible say about how you should treat others?

    Behold, the Bible says much about human behavior and how we should treat each other. There are thousands of specific directions for doing so, but they can all be summarized in what we know as the Golden Rule. In Matthew 7:12, Jesus Christ said, “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” As per the Golden Rule, when we treat others as we want to be treated, we will be kind, honest, trustworthy, and loving. We all need love, compassion, kindness, honesty, forgiveness, and care from other people, so we should be equally concerned with giving those things to other people. When the Almighty God first gave the Law to Moses, He included hundreds of instructions about the way the Israelites were to treat each other (Leviticus 18:3; 20:23; Deuteronomy 18:9).

    The Israelites were immersed in a world that was violent, godless, and wicked. When God chose them to be holy people, set apart for Himself, He was very specific about what was allowed and what was forbidden (Isaiah 41:8–10; Deuteronomy 7:6; Exodus 19:6). When asked about the greatest commandment, Jesus Christ replied, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” In other words, all the Laws that God had given to Israel could be summarized in two commands: love God above all else, and love your neighbor as you love yourself. Doing these two things is obeying the Law of Moses and the Teachings of the Prophets.

    What is brotherly kindness?

    2 Peter 1:5-7 is one of the few places in scripture that uses the term brotherly kindness, although many more passages in the Bible discuss the idea: “Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love.” These character qualities can be considered steps of spiritual growth. Apostle Peter continues by telling us why these character traits, including brotherly kindness, are so important: “For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter1:8).

    What is lovingkindness in the Bible?

    Lovingkindness is a word found in older, more traditional versions of the English Bible, such as the King James (KJV) and the New American Standard (NASB). The Hebrew word most often translated “lovingkindness” is checed, which literally means “covenant loyalty.” Most newer English translations of the Bible substitute more common English words such as faithfulness, unfailing love, mercy, or good favor. All of these are viable substitutions, but, as with many Hebrew words, checed has no exact match in English. While lovingkindness can describe one person’s actions toward another(Genesis 20:13; 21:23; Joshua 2:12), it is most often used to describe the character of the Lord God Almighty (Exodus 20:6, 34:6–7; Deuteronomy 7:12; 2 Chronicles 1:8; Psalm 31:16).

    Five (5) times Jesus Christ taught us about kindness

    The Bible recounts a lot of stories about Jesus’ Ministry. He healed the sick and performed astonishing miracles. However, what we often fail to see are the lessons that He is trying to teach us through those acts. It’s important for us to remember that Jesus Christ is one of the greatest teachers. He used parables and stories to teach us about the Kingdom of God. But His greatest method is teaching by example. The deeds of Jesus Christ taught us about many Christian values, such as kindness and compassion. He raised children from the dead out of pity for their parents and accepted disciples from all walks of life. Most important of all, Jesus Christ sacrificed His life to save us. Below are some Bible stories in which Jesus Christ is teaching us about kindness:

    1 – Healing the Leper (Matthew 8:1-4)

    Matthew 8:1-4 says, When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. Then Jesus said to him, “See that you don’t tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” 

    In Jesus’ time, lepers were considered outcasts because of the communicability of their disease. They lived separately and were seen or considered as “unclean” and “untouchable”. With this in mind, Jesus took pity on the leper and healed him of his disease. As a matter of fact, Jesus Christ didn’t see the man as a leper but as a human being or God’s creature who was sick and needed his help. Through this act, Jesus Christ taught us that kindness should go beyond social stereotypes. We should feel for others as we feel for ourselves. We should learn to understand the circumstances that others are in and as well learn to love them as we love ourselves. In support of this, Mother Teresa said, “If you judge people, you have no time to love them”.

    2 – Dining with a sinner (Luke 19:1-10)

    Luke 19:1-10 says, Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus was. But because he was short, he could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him since Jesus was coming that way. When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, ...”

    Would you be willing to dine with an ex-convict, a known sinner? While some of us would have hesitated, others would have clearly refused. Although Zacchaeus may not be a convicted criminal in our eyes, in the eyes of the Jews, he might well be. Records hold it that in Jesus’ time, tax collectors would often abuse their powers to line their pockets with the people’s hard-earned money. Yet, Jesus Christ did not hesitate to dine with one of such. Behold, He didn’t care if other people will see Him associating with a sinner. Likewise, He didn’t care if people will hate Him for it. Brethren, this is the kind of kindness that the world needs today. As Christians, we should stop seeing people for the wrongs they’ve committed. Instead, we should welcome them on how they try to right those wrongs and turn their life around.

    3 – Preaching to the Gentiles (John 4:4-14)

    John 4:4-14 says, Now he had to go through Samaria. So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

    One of the biggest problems in the world these days is xenophobia. But we discover that this prejudice against foreigners has been going on even in Jesus’ time. The Samaritan woman is a foreigner and in the eyes of a Jew, she is a gentile. These two races don’t associate. As a matter of fact, it’s frowned upon to talk to a gentile. Therefore, by preaching to a Samaritan woman, Jesus Christ broke societal boundaries and taught us that kindness is universal. Thus, we shouldn’t be kind only to those of our own race. Everyone deserves compassion regardless of their skin color, actions, and/or religious beliefs.

    4 – Showing compassion to the sick (Luke 8:40-48)

    Luke 8:40-48 says, As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. “Who touched me?” Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.” But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.” 

    From this story, it’s clear that Jesus Christ could have reprimanded the woman for touching him. But He didn’t. Since women didn’t have a lot of rights in those days, He could have “put her in her place.” Yet, He chose not to. Instead, Jesus Christ called her daughter – a term of endearment. He understood her troubles and desperation, which led her to do what she did. Note that at the moment of the action, the woman was fearfully trembling. It’s possible that because of her illness, she wasn’t treated well by the people around her. But can you imagine the relief she felt when Jesus Christ showed her love, kindness, and compassion instead of reproach? It’s clear that this single act of kindness changed the woman’s life.

    5 – Forgiving those who hurt Him (Luke 22:47-52)

    Luke 22:47-52 says, While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him, but Jesus asked him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?” When Jesus’ followers saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, should we strike with our swords?” And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear. But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him. 

    Even in the face of imminent death, Jesus Christ still found it in Him to heal the man who arrested Him. Even while hanging on the cross, He still managed to ask His Father to spare the people who’ve hurt him because they don’t know what they are doing. As Christians, forgiving those who have done us wrong is one of the greatest acts of kindness that we can do – not only for others but for ourselves too. By so doing, we give our enemies the chance to redeem themselves and ourselves the opportunity to heal.

    Bible Verses About Theatre

    Discover the Bible Verses About Theatre. Can A Christian Consider A Career In Acting/entertainment? What Does The Bible Say About Actors/Actresses? All these questions are answered in one way or the other by the Bible through its many verses. However, these are hard questions to answer because the entertainment industry includes many aspects. It is important to understand the vast difference between a theatre that presents only classics such as Shakespeare’s plays and TV shows that glorify sex and violence. While both are considered part of the entertainment industry and involve actors and actresses, the impact on the performers and the audiences is quite different. With this in mind, Christians considering a career in acting or performing must consider the bearing their roles will have on themselves spiritually, the lifestyle into which they’ll be entering, and the influence their performances will have on others.

    From a Biblical point of view, it is clearly not an option for a Christian actor/actress/performer to get involved in a movie that glorifies sin or the devil’s work. Behold, actors struggle to find roles and this leaves them vulnerable to whatever parts that come their way, especially when they are first starting out. For unbelieving actors/actresses, the decision to take a part in a movie involves little more than the effect it will have on their careers and future roles and the money they’ll earn. But for the faithful Christian, there is also the problem of whether the role glorifies God or at least it is not actually glorifying rebellion against Him with violence, sex, or other evil practices. An actor is more likely to say, “I’m just acting or playing the role of a character. It is not the real me neither does it portray my personal convictions.”

    Bible Verses About Theatre

    What The Scriptures Say About Acting

    The problem with acting lies in how your role influences yourself and others. That is, the message it passes to yourself and the audience. Behold, this message can actually build or destroy them. In the entertainment industry, the highest pay packages are often prepared for those taking the ungodly roles probably because we live in a world where the Devil has a huge influence on such matters. However, the faithful Christian actor should not take roles or parts which promote Satan’s agenda. The governing principle involved here is found in 1 Corinthians 10:31 – “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” With this in mind, make sure that the role you are acting is glorifying God in one way or the other.

    In the same light, the issue of the lifestyle of the actors/actresses must be a consideration for a Christian. Behold, there is an enormous amount of drugs, alcohol, and immoral behavior in the entertainment industry. Most young people who are eager to get the “big break” in this industry are often used and abused by those in power. While it’s still possible for a Christian to be in this world and not be affected by it, 1 Corinthians 15:33 clearly warns us, “Do not be misled: ‘Bad company corrupts good character.’” Likewise, the impact performers have on others must be considered. When unbelievers see professing Christians in movies, TV shows, or live performances that promote ungodliness, they sense hypocrisy and are given cause to “blaspheme the name of God” (Romans 2:24). Note that Certain actions or performances can be detrimental to the faith of others.

    Important Advice

    It is clear that as Christians, we must pay attention to the impacts of our performances on others. Our performances can positively or negatively influence our audience. It can as well lead to a detrimental effect on the faith of other believers, especially young people and those immature in the faith. Behold, Jesus Christ spoke harshly of those who cause “one of these little ones who believe in me to sin” (Matthew 18:6). Likewise, Romans 14:13 says, “Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother. ”

    With this in mind, the decision to enter into a career in acting or entertainment must be made prayerfully, seeking God’s wisdom (James 1:5) and the counsel of mature Christians, remembering always that “everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness” (2 Timothy 2:19). And in your acting career, never forget the governing principle found in 1 Corinthians 10:31 – “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”

    Heaven is God’s throne and the Earth is his footstool. He rules from above with supreme severity, power, and authority over everything on Earth and in Heaven. He created man in his likeness to cater for other creatures of His. Every good thing was given to man in the Garden of Eden until the day he rebelled against God under the influence of Satan. His rebellion brought sin and death into the world. This led to the expulsion of man from the Garden into a world of suffering and hardship.

    What you should know

    Truth be told, the first step to genuinely acknowledging God is accepting and knowing that Jesus Christ is the only way into Heaven. We are all sinners who are in need of God’s mercy. This divinely mercy was released from the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, who takes away the sins of those who welcome him in love. He is the savior of the World through whom God makes us perfect. By sincerely repenting from your sins and obeying the Key Teachings of Jesus Christ, you are made God’s child. And just as Christ overcame death, he will do same for all those who are sent to him by the Father of Creation. In our quest for God’s mercy and favor, we ought to fully reject our understanding and depend on the Lord in all situations – whether good or bad.

    We can genuinely acknowledge God by humbling ourselves and choosing His will over ours. Keep in mind that God’s will is the best. When you are face with His will and yours, do not hesitate to go for His. Remember that God wants you to prosper through the plans He has for you as we can read from Jeremiah 29:11. The plans that he has for us are those to uplift us spiritually and physically. Another fact to support the Bible verses about acknowledging God. It is without doubt that God always knows what is best for us. That’s why we should completely put our trust in his will and not ours. The way we live our lives should be a form of acknowledging God’s presence. Let’s cry out to him for help in overcoming our weaknesses and dwelling in his presence.

    How To Accept Jesus Into Your Life

    How To Accept Jesus Into Your Life

    Learn How To Accept Jesus Into Your Life. The Bible clearly says and makes us understand that there is only one way to Heaven, Jesus Christ. In John 14:6, Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” This one way to Heaven that the Bible talks of is to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and follow God’s plans in the Bible for our lives. It is important for us to understand that good works cannot save us and that faith in Jesus Christ alone can save us. In support, Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

    However, accepting Jesus as your personal savior involves an understanding of who Jesus is, what a Savior is, and what it truly means to accept Jesus as Savior. Jesus Christ is often talked of as a good person, yet the Bible declares that He is much more. Behold, Jesus Christ is God in human form who came to live on earth (John 1:1). He lived, taught, performed miracles, suffered, died, and resurrected from the dead to prove He is Lord. In 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Apostle Paul says, “I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.”

    How To Accept Jesus Into Your Life

    What The Scriptures Say About Accepting Jesus Christ

    There is much that the Bible says about Jesus Christ, the Savior of mankind. In simple terms, a Savior is a rescuer, redeemer, or one who saves someone else. Jesus is the Savior of the world in every aspect of this world. He rescues us from sin and eternal punishment when we trust in Him by faith. Jesus is a Redeemer because He paid the cost of our sins through His death on the cross. Jesus Christ can save us because He has the power to forgive sins and the desire to save those who trust in Him. To accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior is to acknowledge who He is in your own life. It is to believe and trust in Him. In support John 1:12 says, “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

    John 3:16 clearly says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Today, we invite you to place your faith in Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior and receive this free gift of Eternal Life. Although there is no special prayer to do so, you can make use of this one: “Heavenly Father, locate me in your mercy and favor. I realize that I am a sinner and could never reach heaven by my own good deeds. Right now I place my faith in Jesus Christ as God’s Son who died for my sins and rose from the dead to give me eternal life. Please forgive me of my sins and help me to live for you. Thank you for accepting me and giving me eternal life.”

    Steps On How To Accept Jesus Christ Into Your Life

    1. Admit that you are a sinner and that you need God’s help

    Romans 3:23 – “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

    Romans 5:12 – “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

    1 John 1:10 – “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”

    2. Be willing to change your mind and turn from your sin through a sincere repentance

    In Luke 13:5, Jesus said, “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.”

    3. Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead

    John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

    Romans 5:8 – “But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us.”

    Romans 10:9 – “If you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

    4. Make a prayer to invite Jesus into your heart to become your personal Lord and Savior

    Romans 10:10 – “For with the heart (core being) man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

    Romans 10:13 – “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    John 1:12 – “But as many as received him, to them He gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:

    2 Corinthians 5:17 – “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

    When you pray and invite Jesus into your life, believe that he has heard your prayer and is in your life as Lord and Savior. Also pray that He fills you with the Holy Spirit that will lead you into the Truth about Him and His Father.

    Things To Do After Receiving Jesus Christ As Your Personal Lord And Savior

    1. Regularly read the Bible to know Jesus Christ and God’s will better

    As followers of Jesus Christ, we are to regularly read the Bible in order to learn His teachings and God’s will. We are to stick to the Bible as our guide and tool to knowing God’s will and rightly accepting the eternal life that comes through Jesus Christ. 2 Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (aligning and applying) the word of truth.” Likewise, Psalms 119:105 says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

    2. Regularly pray or talk to God in prayer everyday

    As Christians, our lives should be revolving around prayers offered to our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” Likewise, Philippians 4:6 says, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” In addition, Matthew 21:22 says, “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

    3. Follow the example of Jesus Christ

    Upon making up your mind to follow Jesus Christ, you should embrace His teachings and ways. Get baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a church where Christ is preached and the Bible is the final authority when it comes to knowing God and doing His will. In support, Matthew 28:19 says, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:” Likewise, Hebrews 10:25 says, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” And 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All [Holy] scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

    4. Teach or spread the Good News about Jesus Christ

    In Luke 8:16, Jesus says, “No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.” Likewise, Christians shouldn’t keep the good news about Jesus Christ only for themselves but should spread it throughout the earth for the good and salvation of mankind. In support, Mark 16:15 says, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Likewise, Romans 1:16 says, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

    Is Asking Jesus Into Your Heart In The Bible?

    The phrase “ask Jesus into your heart” is not in the Bible. And, unlike some Christian concepts (like the doctrine of the trinity) we don’t find Biblical passages that indirectly point to it, either. The closest we might come across is this passage in Revelation 3:20, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” The first thing we notice is that this verse is not saying anything about the heart. Nor does it say anything about a person asking Jesus for something; instead, Jesus knocks, and the person opens the door.

    Another potential passage might be Ephesians 3:16-17, “I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.” Once again, however, this Biblical passage is not referring to a salvation message or asking something from Jesus Christ. It is addressed to the believers as Apostle Paul prays for them to grow in relationship with Him. Generally, when people talk about “asking Jesus into our hearts,” they are talking about becoming a Christian. These words not being in the Bible does not mean that the phrase is unbiblical or anti-biblical. Instead, the phrase points to some key components of coming to Jesus Christ. The use of such a phrase is not wrong or harmful on its own. Problems arise when such is used without explaining its meaning.

    Meaning of the phrase to ask Jesus into your heart

    Note that the idea behind “asking Jesus into our hearts” is that He would take center stage in our lives. When we say something is “near to our heart,” we mean that it is of great importance to us. The Bible also tells us that the Holy Spirit dwells with the believers (1 Corinthians 3:16). This idea of the Holy Spirit indwelling may be translated by some, especially for children, like Jesus coming to live in our hearts, though this is not technically accurate. In addition, the phrase “asking Jesus into our hearts” alone does not convey the fullness of the gospel or what it means to submit to Christ as Lord and Savior. That is, it doesn’t speak much about submitting to Christ’s Lordship, repentance, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Following this, we regularly hear other ways of referring to a person receiving or accepting Christ.

    One prominent phrase that is often used instead of “asking Jesus into your heart” is “accepting Christ as your Lord and Savior.” This phrase is twofold. First, accepting Christ as Lord means putting Him in charge of our lives and recognizing His authority over all things (Philippians 2:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Matthew 28:18). Second, recognizing Him as Savior shows our acknowledgment of our own sin and need for saving (Romans 3:23-24). Another phrase that some people use is “turning to Christ” or “turning to Jesus.” Such phrases help to remind us that we are turning away from a life of sin and turning towards Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:17). Romans 10:9 says, “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

    Fools Talk Too Much Quote

    Fools Talk Too Much Quote

    Fools Talk Too Much Quote. The Bible clearly warns us against talking too much or being overly talkative. In fact, the Bible tells us that a fool can be recognized by his many words (Ecclesiastes 5:3). Ecclesiastes 10:14 adds that a fool “multiplies words.” Christians should understand that the Bible discourages the use of an abundance of words where a few would suffice. Proverbs 17:28 says, “Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.” Behold, those who feel compelled to give utterance to every thought in their heads usually end up in trouble. Proverbs 10:8 openly describes the overly talkative person as a “prating fool” (NKJV), a “babbling fool” (ESV, NASB), or a “chattering fool” (ISV) who is on his way to ruin. Such a person is contrasted with one who is “wise of heart.

    Talking too much leads to sin as we can read from Proverbs 10:19 that says, “When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.” Truthfully speaking, the wise person refuses to talk too much. Rather, he fears and honors the Lord God Almighty. He listens to the Lord and obeys His commands. He follows the example of Mary, “who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said” (Luke 10:39). It is important to understand that when our mouths are full of our own words, we have little time or interest in God’s words. Talking too much is a sign or a clear indication that we are listening too little. That is, we are more focused on passing a message than receiving one. As Christians, we should talk less and listen more.

    Fools Talk Too Much Quote

    The Bible clearly makes us understand that restraining our lips is an indication of wisdom and humility. Talkative people often do not take the time between their many words to carefully and wisely choose what to say and what to hold back. Today’s modern culture offers numerous avenues through which we can express ourselves verbally. Cell phones, social media, blogs, and call-in radio all enable us to keep up a constant stream of chatter. But how much of our talking is really important or edifying? Ephesians 4:29 says, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Saying what really needs to be said is important, but talking too much easily leads to saying what should not be said.

    From the different quotations of Apostle Peter in the gospels, it seems that he was a talkative person by nature. In one instance at least, Peter’s verbosity was ill-advised. While on the mount of transfiguration, Peter says to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what to say . . .)” (Mark 9:5–6). Here, we notice that Peter “did not know what to say,” so, of course, he said something! This is exactly what talkative people do. It is amazing how God rapidly silenced Peter by redirecting his focus: “A cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: ‘This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!’” (Mark 9:7). Notice that Peter’s talking had to be replaced with listening.

    What The Scriptures Say

    We are made to understand by the Scriptures that just as the overly talkative person displays foolishness, the one who holds his tongue demonstrates knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 17:27 says, “He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.” We can’t gain knowledge if we are constantly talking, but understanding comes from listening and using our words sparingly.

    As Christians, it is important for us to understand that talking too much is detrimental to our witness in the world, as Apostle James reminds us, “If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless” (James 1:26). Apostle James later says that controlling the tongue is one of the hardest things to do, humanly speaking (James 3:2). In fact, “no human being can tame the tongue” (James 3:7). Amazingly, we have the Holy Spirit to help us with the task, and here is a Helpful Prayer To Stop Talking Too Much: “Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips” (Psalm 141:3).
