Lord Jesus Christ, I am just a sinner always and constantly in need of your love, because it takes only your love to change a sinner. I found your love in your word and your word tells me about your blood you shed for me. THANK YOU LORD.
If we want to bear fruit the way that God wants us to in this life, we MUST make it as much about Him and as less about ourselves as possible. This means leaving our personal passions and desires at the door, and stepping into the calling that God has for each one of us. Are you ready to take that leap? Are you ready to lessen yourself for something so much greater than you could ever do without God being in charge? All for HIS glory. All for HIS honour. HE deserves it all. Let’s go!

Deus Quer Te Usar!

Como você tem encarado as barreiras/dificuldades que insistem em cruzar seu caminho? Tentando agir com a força do seu próprio braço ("Maldito o homem que confia EM SI MESMO... (Jeremias 17:5) ou está verdadeiramente descansando/confiando no Deus que tudo pode ("Bendito o homem que confia no SENHOR, e cuja confiança é o SENHOR".
Todos nós passamos por esses momentos, alguns mais fáceis, outros mais difíceis. No entanto, Deus, que nos ama e nos conhece profundamente, diz que Ele mesmo batalharia por nós, assumindo pessoalmente a nossa peleja (devemos orar, crer e esperar).
A partir de hoje, em nome de Jesus, se coloque verdadeiramente nas mãos do Senhor, que é o Deus que luta e vence cada batalha por nós. A sua parte é não se impressionar com a grande multidão de problemas que vêm contra você, e sim crer e descansar nEle.
Por isso, não aceite a ansiedade e a preocupação que qualquer situação possa estar lhe causando. Deus quer te equilibrar internamente com a Sua paz, mesmo que, ao olhar ao seu redor, você não veja uma solução. Entregue a sua situação e descanse no Deus que cuida de você em todo tempo. Essa semana vai ser a melhor semana da sua vida! Coisas boas vão acontecer, em nome de Jesus! Creia! Não desista! Fique firme! Jesus te ama! Você é uma benção! Amém! •Ative as notificações da página.
“The key difference between the two men in today’s gospel reading is that the Pharisee was so spiritually blind that he thought he actually had done all that God required. He even prayed to himself. He apparently thought that he needed no forgiveness and was justified in worshiping himself and condemning others. His was a very watered-down religion, ultimately a form of idolatry that was focused on the glories of his own life. The tax collector was the complete opposite, focused only on his own need for God’s mercy as the chief of sinners. As we begin to make our plans for intensified prayer, spiritual reading, fasting, almsgiving, forgiveness, and repentance this Lent, we should focus on turning away from every form of self-justification and every form of condemnation of others. We should embrace the spirituality of the Jesus Prayer as much as possible: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.” We should look for opportunities in our daily lives to put the needs of others before our own, to live for others and not simply for ourselves. And when we struggle and fail to accomplish what we set out to do, we should kneel in humility like the publican with no excuses, no passing of the blame, and no judgment of anyone else for any reason. We should learn to see ourselves as the chief of sinners with nothing to present to the Lord except a plea for mercy and a humble resolve turn away from our sins and to turn toward Him in how we live our lives each day.” - Fr.
