Your Life Can Be Meaningful

Hello Everyone,

Happy New Month! Thank God for keeping us through the first 7 months of 2021.

How are you doing? I hope you are well. I know I haven't shared any articles for the last 8 weeks. My sincere apologies. My silence was due to adjusting to a number of things in the background. In the fullness of time, I will share some of the things that I have been doing. So, back to this week's article (as you know, I share an article every Monday)...


Your Life Can Be Meaningful!




Some people live their lives as if they own their lives; forgetting that God owns their lives. He created you and gave you life. That's right! Do you know that you have to give an account of your life to God? The Book of Romans 14:12 says "then, each of us will give an account of himself to God." How are you living your life? Every single day of your life is being seen by God, even your thought is seen and known by God (Psalm 139).

Are you conscious of how you are living? Or do you feel nobody sees or knows what you are doing, or that nobody sees the state of your heart? Thus, you can hide things from others. The Book of Luke 8:17 says "For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open."  

I would like you to know that God's free gift (that is, God's remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers) can help you to enjoy this life on earth. Christ died for you so that your life on earth can have meaning. Likewise, so that you can make heaven, eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord is waiting for those who believe and live for Christ. Matthew 7:21 says "Not everyone who says ‘You are my Lord’ will enter the kingdom of heaven. The only people who will enter the kingdom of heaven are those who do the things that my Father in heaven wants."

Have you surrendered your life to Christ? Have you surrendered unto God the things that you know that God will not be pleased with? To believe in Christ means you must be ready to live for Christ. You must be ready to give up those things that are not of God. You must be ready to do the things that God wants even if it will cost you. 

Christ has sent the Holy Spirit to help you live a life that has meaning on this earth, and a life that will lead to eternal life. Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to lead you? Or are you leading yourself? Leading yourself will destroy your soul as that is the aim of the devil. His plan is to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10a).




If this message has blessed you — would you like to share it with someone? Send it to a friend, on your social media platforms, family members, and many more.

Also, I love hearing from you in the comment section. Please take a minute to say ‘hello’ by leaving a comment. 

Have a lovely week!

Yours in Christ,

Teach Your Children About Their Identity In Christ

Hello Readers & Followers,

It's a New Week! Thank God for preserving our lives to see another week. Praise be to God! I am continuing the series titled "Our identity in Christ." If you missed the last 4 articles about our identity in Christ, see the links below:

Week 1 - 4 Bible Verses about Your Identity In Christ

Week 2 - Proverbs 31 Believers | Your Royalty In Christ

Week 3 - Christ Has Set You Free From Sin

Week 4 - Are You Ready For The End Of The World?

This week's post is to encourage Christian parents to teach their children about their identity in Christ. If you have adults children and you were already a Christian when you were raising them, would you like to share how you taught your children about their identity in Christ? 

The focus of my post is to remind Christian parents of young children that they have a tremendous responsibility to teach their children about the Word of God, their identity in Christ and to lift up their children in prayer unto God.

4 Bible Verses about Your Identity In Christ

Prove Your Faith

Hello Readers & Followers,

How was your weekend? I hope you had a restful and lovely weekend? It is another week! Praise be to God for His mercies over us. This week's post is an opportunity for us to reflect on the genuineness of our faith. Most people may have heard someone say "I love You" to their spouse. However, I believe the phrase "I love You" carries better weight when it is shown through works. How would I know that my husband loves me? It is not only in what he says to me but rather in his actions toward me. This applies to our relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Jesus would like us to prove our faith by our actions. Jesus said in John 14:15 that "If you love me, obey my commandments."

Showing Biblical Kindness to Others

Hello Readers & Followers,

How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend and that your celebration was filled with the joy of the Lord. Today's post is about the kindness of God. Let me ask you a question, do you think the words kindness and Biblical kindness are different? From my understanding of the Word of God, Biblical kindness is different from the kindness that we sometimes show towards others albeit there are similarities. Kindness is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).

How to Think Positively as a Christian

Hello Readers & Followers,

It's a new week! Thank God for preserving our lives and thank God for His mercy over us. The Bible says God's mercies are new every morning. For God's mercies to be new every morning, it means there is no expiry date to God's mercy towards us. How incredible! What a merciful God we serve. Praise be to God Most High!

Overcoming the Love of Money as a Christian

Hello Readers & Followers,

I hope you are well. We have now come to the end of the series on 'The Love of Money'. You may want to read the last 2 articles that I have written before this post:

Part 1: Can You Be A Christian and Love Money?

Part 2: An Open Letter to Those That Misuse Church/Christian Ministry Funds

You want to be blessed on earth?

An Open Letter to Those That Misuse Church/Christian Ministry Funds

Hello Readers & Followers,

I hope you are well. I am currently writing a series on 'The Love of Money'. Last week, I wrote about what the love of money is about and the dangers of loving money. If you missed the article, please click here to read. Today's post is the 2nd of 3 teachings in this series.

This open letter is addressed to all Christians in positions of financial authority and that are misusing funds that belong to God's work.


God would like you to be reminded of the following:


Keep your life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have, for God has said, He will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity (Ecclesiastes 5:10).

For the sake of dishonest gain, you are teaching things that you ought not to teach (Titus 1:10-11).

You say, "I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing. But you do not realise that you are wretched (miserable), pitiful, poor, blind and naked. (Revelation 3:17)."

Do you want to end up like Judas Iscariot, Gehazi and Achan?

I would like to keep you in the loop with what God has in store for this blog in the next 3 weeks. I will be starting a new series on 'The LOVE OF MONEY.' The first article will be shared tonight. Whilst you are waiting to read today's article, I would like to encourage you to share this blog website with your friends and those that are in your circle so that they can have free access to online Christian articles that will refresh their souls. You could even share your favourite article that you recently read on my blog with them.


Have a lovely day! 

Yours in Christ,

Christian Attitude to Fasting

Hello Readers & Followers,

I am continuing the series on fasting and prayer. If you missed last week's topic (10 reasons why Christians should fast), please click on this link to catch up. Today's topic is about the attitude that we (Christians) should have when fasting. This is the 2nd of 4 teachings on fasting and prayer.

Do you know that people fast for different reasons? Some fast as part of their religion, some fast because they want to lose weight, some fast for medical or experimental reasons. As you have learnt from last week's post, Christians also fast for several reasons. When we are fasting as Christians, Christ expects us to have the right attitude towards fasting. We need to fast in line with God's desires and purpose.

God's Word for Year 2021

Hello Readers & Followers,

It's a New Year! Thank You, Jesus, for keeping each and every one of us alive to be a part of the Year 2021. I'd like you to know that God has kept you alive because He has a role in your life. He still has good plans for you to fulfil. See below for what the Lord had shared with me concerning the Year 2021.



God said: 

For I am about to do something new.

See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?

I will make a pathway through the wilderness.

I will create rivers in the dry wasteland (Isaiah 43:19).


God also said:

And afterwards, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. 

Your sons and daughters will prophesy, 

Your old men will dream dreams, 

Your young men will see visions (Joel 2:28).


Mysses Lafunky's wisdom nuggets

As you start the year and write up a plan, remember that as you plan, it is God who determines the outcome (Proverbs 16:33) and it is He who works in you to will and to do according to His good pleasure (Philippians 2:13). So, do not make your plans in isolation of God, let Him lead you and direct you on what to do and when to do it.

Prayer

May the Lord guide your path in the Year 2021. May you fulfil His purpose for your life in Jesus' name.

Yours in Christ,

Mysses Lafunky
