Be Real-Jesus loves me!
Jesus wants us to come to Him as who we are.
God’s righteousness and holiness cannot overlook sin. He sent His Son to die on our behalf. He knew it is going to be a great cost! God so loved us! Only the gospel can change people’s live. Only Jesus and His grace can!
3rd sunday after He rose from the dead. Sunday is a day we set aside for the Lord. Man enter into God’s rest and he can work.
For God is the source that is important.
The blessings of the Lord makes rich and add no sorrow to it! Sorrow is painful work cannot add to God’s blessings. When God blesses, we dont need all the painful labour.
Have u worked very hard and come out empty?
We are troubled by after we are saved, we see ourselves having challenges in our lives. We don’t like what we see in ourselves. Is the sin after u r saved that troubles u.
People who are not truly born again will not be troubled.
Then Jesus said to them, “ Children, have you any food?”
They answered Him, “No.”
And He said to them, “ Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish.
Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea.
Come from the posture from favour!!
Why did Peter jump into water and went straight to Jesus?
Jesus prophesied His victory before Peter fell. Jesus prayed for Peter that his faith will not fail.
It was not sin-conscious that cause Peter to jump to the sea to reach Jesus.
There is something Peter knew about the Lord that he was not afraid to be alone with Jesus.
It was not the law that empower Peter to jump to see Jesus.
Peter knew Jesus loves him even when he failed. His faith tells him how much Jesus loves him even when he failed.
The thing Jesus treasured the most is Peter and His flock.
Where sin increased, grace superabound.
Those who feel loved will love. Those who are loved best will love best!
So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together, saying, “The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!”

and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
Wherever we go, Health follows because Jesus is in it!
Fig gets its sweetness when it is ripe. There is a special kind of bees which will inject and deposit its eggs into the fig and the fig will be sweet after it is fermented.
We are the fig fruit. When we receive God’s word in us, our live becomes sweet b
Word of God – dabar (in hebrew)
Jesus revealed He is the Messiah to the woman with 5 husbands. She became a evangelist!
Jesus exposed her sins to show how much He loves her as who she is. To come as who she is.
Is the sense of His love that changes everything!
The Lord is fulfilled when u allow to be loved and given by Him. Is His joy! A woman came and took from Him and this energised the Lord!
Always interpret the word in the light of the finished work.
Judas Hangs Himself
Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.”
And they said, “What is that to us? You see to it!”
Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself.
God wants us to receive and not trying to do the work ourselves and get forgiven by own work.
Jesus is a friend of sinners. A friend of sinners.
Faith is seeing God as a Saviour.
Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty- three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken.
God makes man to operate by His love. This is how we become whole.
U come to Jesus with ur sins and yet u know He loves u still.
To know His love needs the holy spirit!
The sense of His love is growth!
The sense of His love brought Peter back. He wants us to see Jesus’ love.
U will never feel love if u put on a show. Jesus did not speak strong words against tax collectors and sinners .
Jesus spoke against those who are self-righteous.
Believe right and u will do right.
Is the sense of His love and grace that will change people’s lives!
U will never feel God’s love if u r pretending! Come to God as u are!
U can talk to God every time.
If anyone been in Christ he is a new creation. Don’t let ur sins hold u back from Jesus! See yourself loved by God!
He knows all about me. He has seen the worst! He is my friend and my Saviour!
Allow Jesus to lift up. Not us lifting ourselves up!
When u pretend to be what u r not, even the Lord loves u, u never feel loved.
U r a new creation and u still have sin in u, but bring it to Jesus! And realised He still loves u!
Faith remind u of who u r in Christ!
If u knew the giving God, u will ask Him!
Rest and let Christ do it in us!
Come to God as honest as u can and u will feel His presence!
David told God everything.
He is the One who has the empowering power to transform me!
The woman with 5 husbands was afraid to be in public, but after she met with Jesus, she became evangelist and went out to witness!
1 Corinthians 15:9
For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
Purpose of the Mystery
To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
Paul was growing in the Lord.
Grace is given to those who realised that they cannot in and of themselves. Is those who has none, Jesus gives all!
God is a Saviour and not a Judge to us.
1 Timothy 1:15
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.
The more he grows he sees he is imperfect. The more he sees how forgiven he has been!
We don’t have sinners’ perfection. There are still sins in our flesh. The sin is to magnify His grace.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
We are saved from God been angry with us again!
Rest in His love, believe in His grace and let His power empower us!
His righteousness never mean u r without any sin.
In mercy and truth
Atonement is provided for iniquity;
And by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil.
Mercy – hesed
True grace – grace and truth
Show true grace, grace will purged the iniquity!
The more u progress in Christian life, drive u to the loveliness to Jesus!
A beautiful Hymn written-
Before The throne of God
Blessed Assurance! A great High Priest whose name is Love! My name is graven on His hand. My name is written on His heart. I know that while in heaven He stands, no tongue can bids me then departs.
It was certain statement. Before the throne of God i have a strong and perfect plead! No tongue can command me from there to depart!
The bible said these things are written that we might know that we are saved!
I am eternally loved and eternally forgiven. He ever lives and pleads for me!
