Commanded to love

Really ?


And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love. 2 John 5-6


I was meditating on the verses above, reading them again and again in my heart when the Lord gave me some light on the link between love and obedience.

Obedience

Bring your selfish desires to the cross
So you can enjoy the peace in your heart
Obedience not a duty but a choice
Submit to Him and you will be smart.

Afraid of going ?

He watches you


For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous but the way of the wicked will perish. Psalm 1:6


Many times when it’s time to make a decision about such or such direction we are afraid of the unknown.

Sometimes we know that the Lord is with us but because we focus on the unknown, fear comes and we begin to allow any kind of thoughts to drive us away from the word of truth.

The truth is that the Lord loves us and will NEVER let us alone. Praise his name!!! We are righteous by the blood of Christ. We are righteous not because of our own efforts but because we have received the free gift of Grace from the Lord. Alleluia !!!!!!!!!!!

Not only he watches over our way but he also comes with us and that was HIS idea actually. 🙂 Yes, He is the one who gave us the idea…!!! Continue reading “Afraid of going ?”

Spiritual Dominates Material

My car key obeyed


I took my 18 years old Renault Clio to MOT last month and after a few repairs it passed fine after the retest. I thought that I was sorted for 12 months when realized that the car was shaking when I go over 30 m/h.

I took it to my mechanic who told me that he will have to change the drive shaft. I’m not sure what it was but I had to pay another £40 on the top of £315 I had already paid for the repairs for the MOT.

After 3 days without a car I finally got it back and rushed to Lidl as I had to do some shopping. When came back to the car it would not start!! The car key would not turn in the barrel. I was thinking what’s going on with this car!!! Is there a ghost or a demon in this car ? 🙂 (only joking)

Lesson of forgiveness

It was hidden!


I had a “friend” that I will call Giovanni for confidentiality purposes. We went to school together for three years in the Caribbean and we used to mess around together. I mean, a lot!
Like every human being my natural tendency was to do evil and Giovanni was helping me to translate this natural tendency into reality.
From smoking to stealing things from people, I was introduced to a life when evil was at the center.
Praise the Lord, I gave my life to Jesus a few years after and I know that my sins were forgiven! I am washed by the blood of the lamb. Continue reading “Lesson of forgiveness”

Water Baptism in 2003

Inside and outside water


It took us almost one year to be water baptised after our conversion, my wife and I. We were saved in a Baptist church, North of Paris and we attended a few meetings with the pastor so we can fully understand the implications of the water baptism.

I really enjoyed this preparation time! I could ask questions and I was really excited to be baptised. I wanted to be a disciple and to follow Jesus everywhere he would take me, whatever it would cost me. I still have the same fire today!

I remember that we had to give our testimonies before the day of the baptism and even if it was easy for me to write, it still could not speak front of people without sweating like marathoner. Continue reading “Water Baptism in 2003”
