HOW DO YOU AMAZE JESUS?


Today we want to scripturally study a man who did amaze Jesus.

To amaze  someone is to fill the person with wonder/astonishment; greatly surprise.

You can bet it will be such great things that will amaze Jesus right? Yes it should be. Someone amazed Jesus and it brought about his miracle. 
In every day and aspects of our life, we also amaze Jesus but there’s always the others side of a coin. Let’s study:

Bible Passage: Matthew 8:5-10
The passage involves a Centurion and Word-web dictionary defines A centurion as a leader of 100 soldiers in ancient Rome.

Jesus Christ just healed a leper in verses 1-4 and he entered into Capernaum, this roman warrior met Jesus with a problem not his own problem though but his servant’s.

He had an interaction with our Lord Jesus and today I want to embark upon the journey of discovery; How this man did amaze Jesus.


    Care for Others:
How much do you amaze Jesus by your care for others? 
How much do you love your neighbour as yourself?
The centurion had an opportunity to meet Jesus and all he talked about was his servant. I have not asked how much you intercede for others yet, but how much do you report your neighbours sickness (problems) to Jesus. 

We've become so selfish and self-centered this days that everything is only about ourselves- Lord bless me, Keep me, protect me etc. How about others? If God has been answering those prayers of yours I can bet by now you will be the only citizen of your country left! 

A lot of us do not even care about our immediate family- Yes! I mean our Parents, Spouses, Children and Siblings. My prayer today is God will change our state of heart that we realize we get the attention of Jesus faster when it is not about us In Jesus Name.

Beware of Selfishness! 
In Verse 7 of the bible passage of the day; Jesus said to him, I will come and heal him.

I have not come this morning to say prayers for oneself is selfish or not important, yes it is! The Scriptures says 'pray without ceasing  not Pray (for yourselves) without ceasing'. 
There is always a place of Love and Compassion in us.

 Christianity is all about Service. 

Funny enough; Likewise the spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the spirit itself maketh intercessions for us with groaning which cannot be uttered(Romans 8:27 KJV).

If the Spirit maketh intercessions for us then this morning I charge you to make intercessions for others.
This was the first approach with which the Centurion amazed Jesus! 
Make up your mind to amaze Jesus today, Pray for others.
Do remember; there is no other great measure of Love like remembering someone in your Prayers.

Good Morning,
Amaze Jesus today, Love more today.

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations.  In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern. Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling! “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                    2 Timothy 2:5 KJV According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified. Everyone who God has called is scored by Him! If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant. Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God. He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him. The greatest persecution he go

SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are those who do the commandments that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. Any man that keeps the commandments of God opens himself up to the right to the tree of life that he may find himself eating of that tree. There is a force of creation, and one of the factors that you must get correctly is COMMANDMENTS. Commandments are God’s word to a man. They are the very element used by God to make covenants with men. It is the first dimension in the ordinance cycle. What then is ordinance? Ordinance is simply the embodiment of the codes of creation. It is ordinance that makes LAWS. DOWNLOAD AUDIO MESSAGE ON SPIRITUAL INTELLIGENCE 1 There are two dimensions of laws. 1. Spiritual laws and 2. Natural laws These two dimensions merge into what is called PRINCIPLES. Principles are bodies of laws (spiritual and natural laws) with God's integrity on them. Everything is built by laws; governed b

GOD'S OMNIPRESENCE AND MANIFEST PRESENCE - THE DIFFERENCE

God’s omnipresence is His attribute of being everywhere at once. He is omnipresent even when we do not experience His presence; He is here, even if we do not recognize Him. God’s manifest presence is, of course, His presence made manifest—the fact that He is with us is made clear and convincing.
