GOOD NEWS

GOOD NEWS

GOOD NEWS FOR ALL PEOPLE: There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:28 The good news of the Lord Jesus Christ is for all, whether Jews or Gentiles. The implication of this is that we are all entitled to the inheritance that salvation brings. Today’s passage says law is the schoolmaster that brings us to Christ and by coming to faith in Christ; we are no longer under the law. Initially, salvation belongs only to the Jews, and not to the Gentiles, but through faith in Christ Jesus, all who come to Him become one, sons and daughters of God. The good news is that though we are not Jews according to flesh, we become spiritual Jews by faith in Christ Jesus. There is no difference; Christ makes us all one. All believers become a unified body regardless of tribe, race, ethnic, colour, culture or language. Having then been adopted as sons and daughters, share the good news. If you are not yet a member of the unified body of Christ, you can become one by professing faith in the Lord Jesus. Do not postpone it. Salvation in Christ is good news to all and sundry! The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: ‘Yes I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you.’ Jeremiah 31:3 Read Bible Through Passage: Jeremiah 4-6 Let others report bad news, we’ll share the good news.

An Interview session with Nathaniel Bassey - Q: I know you’ve mentioned spending time with God and connecting with Him first. What other habits have you imbibed over the years that have been responsible for your growth? A: One of the craziest habits I’ve had is praying in tongues, extensively. There was time we did a 24-hours non stop, I’ve done a 16 hours praying in tongues, I’ve  done a couple of hours and I just found out by the Holy Ghost that it’s one of the most potent instruments to fellowship with the spirit. Praying in the spirit is like a habit. You know, because when you do that you’re doing many things at the same time. You accelerate spiritual growth , you speak to God directly,  you’re building your most holy faith, you’re praying for things you may never know about, so you’re praying the will of God over your life so you just find out that you’re in God’s will and then I will say swim in the word of God. Musicians don’t read the word of God. We go to church and  as soon  as you’re done with service or you’re done playing, you check out of  the very essence of life … Over the years I sing the revelation of God that I find. The Bible says let the word of God dwell in you richly. Spend time growing character. Be consistent,  get a mentor . I was blessed to be raised under pastor Eskor who -and for many years I didn’t understand why – people would come from the US to ask “let’s take this boy (Nathaniel), there’s a platform in the States” and he will say to them blatantly “He’s not going anywhere, he’s not ready. He’s got the gift but the character is not formed”. And I thought sometimes, “this man, your children are abroad, they’re living well and I’m here” But the day God opened my eyes, I understood personally that character is the infrastructure that hosts your gift and the weaker it was, the shorter you would last. The stronger it is, the longer you would last. Character ensures posterity. So take the fruits of the spirit seriously and that comes over time, that is progressive spiritual growth.And then practice your music , engage,  give yourself to your craft. I teach on the concept of the total music minister which is to have spirit,  to have skill,  to have character. I mean it wasn’t tongues that opened the door to the palace for David. The Bible says bring me a man…Saul said bring me a man who can play well not who can pray well. Unfortunately skill does not come by praying and fasting… It comes by engaging your craft and having a routine, doing the same thing again and again. Simple repetitive practice over time will just strengthen your gifting.


This testimony has blown me apart. May I live for Him alone not for the things of this world. Read it soberly....RICK WARREN'S (BEST selling Author, Inspirational Speaker) Interview..... Please Read this: This is an absolutely incredible short interview with Rick Warren, 'Purpose Driven Life' author and PPastorof Saddleback Church in California.In the interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren,Rick said: -People ask me, What is the purpose of life? --And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven. --One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body  but not the end of me. I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity.This is the warm-up act the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity. We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn't going to make sense. Life is a series of problems: Either you are in one now, OR you're just coming out of one, OR you're getting ready to go into another one.The reason for this is that God is more interested in your characterthan your comfort; God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy. We can be reasonably happy here on earth, but that's not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character, in Christ likeness.No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on. And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for.--You can focus on your purposes, or you can focus on your problems .If you focus on your problems, you're going into self-centeredness, which is my problem, my issues, my pain. But one of the easiest ways to get rid of pain is to get your focus off yourself and onto God and others.
We need to ask ourselves: Am I going to live for possessions? Popularity? Am I going to be driven by pressures? Guilt? Bitterness? Materialism? Or am I going to be driven by God's purposes (for my life)?When I get up in the morning, I sit on the side of my bed and say, God, if I don't get anything else done today, I want to know You more and love You better. God didn't put me on earth just to fulfill a to-do list. He's more interested in what I amt han what I do. That's why we're called human beings, not human doings. Happy moments, PRAISE GOD.Difficult moments, SEEK GOD. Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD.Painful moments, TRUST GOD. Every moment, THANK GOD.
