A Closer Walk

Attitude of the Righteous

Our ministry is to reach out to the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ and to help believers be equipped with a solid knowledge of the Word of God, the Bible, and be encouraged to apply it in every aspect of their daily lives. There are simple truths for these complex times to help people live in a way that brings real spiritual victory to them and more importantly, through the Lord Jesus Christ, glory to God our Father.

John 3:30
He (Jesus) must increase, but I must decrease.

That small and simple statement of John the Baptist is one of the single most profound in all of either the Old or New Testaments. Our lives are all about the Lord Jesus Christ. Consider a child's seesaw, a teeter totter, when one side goes up the other goes down, and vice versa. It is simple physics and it is a simple truth here. To whatever degree one side goes up, the other goes down. All of the glory belongs to the Lord!

In 2013 as we were traveling and ministering in the United Kingdom and Western Europe I was invited to spend a couple of weeks teaching pastors at a small university in Kenya as well as visiting a number of cities and villages there to preach. It so happened that while there I had my 70th birthday and the school gave me a surprise birthday party. It was a real blessed time of fellowship. Leaving there, Alice and I headed back to the UK where we immediately went to North Wales to take part in a conference.

While there a person was talking about the wonder of creation, God creating everything from nothing in just 7 days. A thought struck me (quite hard actually) and I began to pray and ask the Lord, 'Why if You could do all that in seven days and You have been working on me for 70 years now, why am I not finished yet? A still small voice that I know so well said to me, 'You are not nothing yet!' The more of Him depends on the less of me.

It is certainly a matter of humility, and of course we have been instructed to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, which of course continues with the promise that He will exalt us at the proper time, just as Peter wrote. {1Pt.5:6} My degree of humility, and yours, is very dependent on the reality and the acceptance of Paul's statement to the Galatians that "I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me!" {Gal.2:20}

“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:14-19)


From Bad To Worse - Part 16
2 Timothy 3:4-5 — Moving from treacherous to reckless, to conceited, then on to being lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. It all leads to a so-called church holding to a form of godliness but denying the true power. And as we end this session we are instructed to avoid such men as these!
