Emanna: Seeing and Proclaiming Christ as the Son of God

Just a little ministry I enjoyed tonight 🙂
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bible Verses ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Acts 9:18  And immediately there fell from his eyes
something like scales, and he received his sight and rose up
and was baptized.  (20)  And immediately he proclaimed Jesus
in the synagogues, that this One is the Son of God.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Words of Ministry ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Everyone in this world knows that there is a Jesus. But they
only know Jesus as one among millions of men in this world.
Although they regard Him as being a little more special than
others, He is still an ordinary man to them. But one day
light and revelation came to you; the eyes of your heart
were enlightened, and you discovered something. You
discovered that this Jesus is the Son of God. What a great
discovery! You discovered that there is one man among all
men who is the Son of God. This is truly tremendous! When a 
person receives the Lord Jesus as his Savior and confesses 
Him as the Son of God, he is doing a great thing, a 
tremendous thing. He cannot let the occasion pass by 
lightly, because it is a momentous event. 

If you realize how great the discovery you have made is and
how important and wonderful your discovery is, you surely
will tell others immediately, “I have met the Son of God,”
You surely will proclaim aloud, ” Jesus is the Son of God!”

Brothers and sisters, never consider your faith to be a 
small thing. You need to realize that your faith is a 
wonderful thing. Saul had to go into the synagogues to speak
because he knew that his discovery was too wonderful. You
will do the same if you realize how wonderful the things you
have seen are. Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God. This is
a most wonderful and glorious fact.

Emanna: Don’t Lose Your Boldness

I was impressed by the words of ministry in this Emanna portion. And to think that this relates to our coming towards God… Simply praise-worthy! Isn’t it wonderful that we can come forward to God with boldness (pun intended) because (not only of God’s mercy but) His righteousness? We were sinners, yet through Christ’s death we were cleansed from our sins and made right with God. Hence, God must forgive us our sins, whether we feel forgiven at one stage or not at another stage. So dear reader – don’t lose your boldness! The Bible declares that we can we can enter the presence of God through our dear Saviour’s blood : )

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bible Verses ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Romans 3:26 With a view to the demonstrating of His righteousness… so that He might be righteous and the One who justifies him who is of the faith of Jesus.
Hebrews 10:19 Having therefore, brothers, boldness for entering the Holy of Holies [where God is] in the blood of Jesus

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Words of Ministry ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whether or not a person can be a proper Christian depends on whether he understands God’s righteousness. Many people cannot live a proper Christian life because they think that their forgiveness is the result of God’s mercy. They think that God forgives them because He sees that they are hopeless. They do not realize that God’s righteousness brought about their forgiveness. Consequently, sometimes they feel that God has forgiven them, and at other times, they feel that God has not forgiven them. But we have to remember that God has given us His Son, who has borne the punishment of sin for us. Therefore, the Bible says that we can come boldly to God.

We thank and praise God that He has given us His Son. Before God gave us Jesus of Nazareth, He was free to forgive us or not forgive us. But now that He has given us Jesus of Nazareth, God cannot refuse us when we come to Him through Jesus Christ; He has to forgive us. God has to forgive those who come to Him through Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! God cannot refuse to forgive those who come to Him through Christ Jesus. Since He has given us Christ Jesus, when we come to Him through Christ, God has to forgive us whether or not He likes it. Hallelujah! We can come to God today not just because of His love, but also because of His righteousness.
