GREAT QUOTES on "SURRENDER"

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Thursday, October 28, 2010,

 
"The Cause of the weakness of your Christian life is that you want to work it out partly, and then have God help you. That cannot be. You must come to be utterly helpless, to let God work. He will work gloriously." ~ Andrew Murray
 
"To DIE TO SELF, or to come from under its power, IS NOT AND CAN NOT BE DONE by any active resistance we can make against it OR by our own power of nature. The one true way of dying to self is the way of patience, meekness, humility, surrender and RESIGNATION t...

Worship in spirit and in truth...

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Wednesday, October 27, 2010,

John 4:23 - 24. What do these verses teach about the nature of God and the kind of worship He desires?

  

John 4:23-2423 “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24 “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

 

The context of this text is a discussion that Jesus has with the woman at the well. She correctly recognizes Jesus as a prophet and...

You decide

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Wednesday, October 27, 2010,

I have been following the trends within the church across the world very closely for some time and have my own opinion about the things I see. Maybe, now more than ever we have to ask the Holy Spirit to release the spirit of discernment in our midst in a far greater way. Whether you agree with the comments made in this video, posted on YouTube, by Andrew Strom, is up to each one of you, however, I decided to post this here with one motive in mind, that you would seek the Lord with pure hearts...

It is finished

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Monday, October 25, 2010,


 Jesus said, It is finished". My friend, He paid the ultimate price so that you and I could live our lives in the abundance that He has promised. As we accept Him as our Lord and Savior, we are hidden in Christ, His blood paid for our ransom and in an instant we become the righteousnesses of God in Christ. Today, we can truly say, "It is not I who lives, but Christ in me, the hope of glory". 

If you have given your life to Christ, you have become righteous and can declare it is finished. And t...

Manna from above

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Monday, October 18, 2010,
Trusting the Lord for daily provision is something many still struggle with. But Jesus taught us not to be concerned about these things, for our Father knows what we need and made the promise, "He will certainly care for you". Matt 6:30. At this point, all we need to do is have faith. Just place our trust in the Truth, the written Word! The Bible tells us that faith comes by hearing and as we hear the word of God, as we hear the promises, it is cemented in our hearts when we add our faith to ...

House back to normal

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Sunday, October 17, 2010,
Ryan got back home today, we were so grateful to see our son again. Funny how time flies, they were just little things running around the house the other day and now they are jetting off all over the place. Carey is preparing to fly off to Germany and Holland in a few weeks time and so the cycle of preparation continues.

In the meantime, we had a wonderful hot day here in the Cape and I can now confirm winter is officially over. I must say, I prefer the colder months, although the temperature ...

Radical results

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Wednesday, October 13, 2010,
The more I look to Jesus the more I see and understand the effect the completed work of the cross has in my life. My friend, as you read this note, I want you to ask yourself whether you truly understand what God has done for you? If we could, just for a moment, allow the mustard seed of faith to be our guide, we will grasp the vastness of God's love in a way we never thought would be possible.

The challenge today is not to understand how God is going to do something that we are expecting, but...

Look to Jesus now and live

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Monday, October 11, 2010,
"Let not your heart be troubled"... What a powerful statement this is, yet we allow our hearts to be troubled. Many of us have allowed ourselves to get caught up in the things of this age and when it overtakes our capacity to function by our faith, we give in to its lies and deceit, but I speak to the mustard seed of faith on the inside of each one of us reading this passage today and declare we have been made righteous in Christ and therefore are able to over come all things for He has made ...

Trusting the Lord

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Monday, October 11, 2010,
Sometimes, when we have a need, we tend to focus on the need rather than on Jesus. I continue to learn to ask Him first and allow the Lord to bring the gift in His time. Please pray with us as we ask the Lord to release a new Venter trailer into our ministry. We need this to transport our equipment around.

Prepared for worship

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Sunday, October 10, 2010,
John 4:23-24 But the time is coming-indeed it's here now-when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit , so those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth. 

There has been, and will be to the end, a remnant of such worshippers. When we hear the word of God say, He is seeking such worshippers, it implies the Father is making them such. God is in all ages gathering in to himself a g...

10.10.10

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Sunday, October 10, 2010,
Today is a special day for some and others won't even consider it significant, what ever your position, 10.10.2010 is at the very least a unique day in that we will, like others, never see this ever again. What is important though is what you and I do with the time that God has given us. 

I am convinced that Christs return is imminent and that we use this day like any other to prepare our hearts for His returning. My heart is that His glory will be revealed throughout the earth and that man wi...

You are what you say you are

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Saturday, October 9, 2010,
My faith compels me to believe that Christ lives His life through me. There is no other option and because this fact is Truth, I continue to confess it because I believe it. I have always said, "The very thing you focus on, you will become". When you focus on what Jesus has done and accomplished for and on your behalf, you cannot help but live your life in such an unselfish way, that everything you do, brings glory to the One True Living God!

And because my focus is Christ, even in the midst o...

Where You Stand - David Wilkerson

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Friday, October 8, 2010,

In Exodus 33, Moses didn’t know it but God was about to bring him into a greater revelation of his glory and nature. This revelation would go far beyond friendship, far beyond intimacy. It’s a revelation God wants all his hurting people to know.
 
The Lord told Moses he was going to show him his glory: “I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee” (Exodus 33:19). Then he said, “Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no ma...

Why is the arm of flesh so prevalent in the Church today.

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Thursday, October 7, 2010,

I am intrigued by the way in which the church continues to allow the flesh of man, which is of no value to and in the Kingdom of our God, to reign and rule over the Bride of Christ as if it was ordained to do so. I mean, I would love to know who authorized its agenda as I do not see it given authority to control and manipulate the church in the Word of God in the way that it does in the times we live in.

 

It was flesh that killed Abel, it was flesh that rejected Noah's call, it was flesh that ...

WHY Are THEY LEAVING the CHURCHES?? -Andrew Strom.

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Monday, October 4, 2010,

Since we have been discussing the "Out-of-church" Christians, I think it is very important for us all - including church leaders - to look at the reasons why these people are leaving. Very often they are NOT "church-hoppers" or backsliders. A lot of them are leaving because they believe the CHURCH is backsliding!

 

So many people write to me from all over the world saying that they have tried and tried - but they cannot find any fellowship in their town that seems remotely biblical. They tell m...
