Newsletter-A Home Away From Home By: Thea Leunk

A Home Away From Home
Reading – 2 Kings 4:8-17
“You have gone to all this trouble for us. Now what can be done for you?” –2 Kings 4:13 –
Shunem was a small town. A wealthy woman who lived in the village offered her home to God’s prophet whenever he traveled through. Going far beyond the hospitality of offering a meal and bed, she had a special room built just for Elisha-a home away from home.

Open Your Gifts
By: Ray Steadman
Read the Scripture: Ephesians 4:7-10
How is the church expected to demonstrate the power of God and thus influence society? The apostle suggests clearly that the power of the church lies in all Christians discovering and intelligently exercising the spiritual gift that was given to them when they became a member of the body of Christ. That is largely a forsaken principle today, and that is why the church is so weak. If we ever recover the strength God intended the church to exert in human society, it will be by a return to that simple thing, the exercise of each person’s spiritual gift.

Newsletter-What Are The Keys Of Death?

What Are The Keys Of Death?

Question: “What are the keys of death (Revelation 1:18)?”

Answer: In Revelation 1:18 Jesus says, “I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” Possessing the “keys of death” means that the risen Christ has control and authority over death. In John 10:17-18, Jesus says, “The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life-only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again.

Newsletter-Is Your Talent Hidden? By M.S. Lowndes

Is Your Talent Hidden?
Read: Matthew 25: 14-30(NKJV)
Like in this story, we shouldn’t bury our talent. God has gifted each one of us with a particular talent. We need to use it for the benefit of the kingdom of God, so it will bless and encourage others. By allowing our talents to be utilized, not only can we have a big impact on someone else’s life, but we can also be blessed ourselves. We find great fulfilment in what we do. And we should do, for we were born for it.

Newsletter-Save The Seed

The children of Israel that entered the Promised Land had vivid, personal recollections of all the miracles and judgments that God Almighty had done among them. They remembered and were careful to walk with the Lord in faith and purity. But they failed to teach their children sufficiently about the Lord. And so the next generation was ignorant of the experiences of their parents and fell easily into sin. This new generation did not have a personal relationship with God, and were not true believers. However, many of the judges did genuinely know the Lord, and some who did not initially live by faith eventually threw themselves on God’s mercy.

Newsletter-You Can’t Out Give God

You Can’t Out Give God
 
In urging the Corinthian believers to give generously, Paul is aware that he must address a very human concern in a world of limited re­sources. Some of his hearers must have been thinking, “If I give as al­truistically as Paul is urging me to give, there may not be enough to meet my own needs.” Making use of an extended agricultural metaphor, Paul assures them that in God’s economy things work differently. He has al­ready alluded to a principle from the book of Proverbs, noting that the “one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” (compare 2 Cor. 9:6 with Prov. 11:24-25). He followed this up by quoting an aphorism from the Greek version of Proverbs 22:8, that “God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7). From this he infers a promise that for the one who gives generously, God can and will cause all sorts of blessings to abound.

Who Is Jesus?
 

Matthew 16:13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. People didn’t know who Jesus was as He walked on this earth and many people today do not have any idea of who Jesus is.
