A Closer Walk

Attitude of the Righteous


Our ministry is to reach out to the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ and to help believers be equipped with a solid knowledge of the Word of God, the Bible, and be encouraged to apply it in every aspect of their daily lives. There are simple truths for these complex times to help people live in a way that brings real spiritual victory to them and more importantly, through the Lord Jesus Christ, glory to God our Father.

Romans 6:17-18
But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.

The apostle Paul who the Lord used to bring us such a large part of the New Testament of the bible, including today's verse, had first been, as Saul of Tarsus the Pharisee, a major persecutor of those who believed in Jesus. {Acts 9} He had been serving the enemy of the church!

On the road to Damascus going to arrest anyone who followed Jesus he encountered the risen Christ and went from being a slave to sin to becoming and having the high title and calling that he gained—a bond-servant of Christ.

Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount that nobody can serve two masters, you will love the one and hate the other. {Mat.6:24} But in reality, everybody will serve somebody—either sin or righteousness. It was for freedom that Christ set us free. {Gal.5:1} So the great oxymoron is that when we are set free from the burden of sin our great desire becomes to serve the Lord as slaves of righteousness. {Rom.6:18}

And serving the Lord brings the fullness of the fruit of the Holy Spirit vibrantly alive in our lives; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. {Gal.5:22-23} It is a simple truth, it is a wonderful truth, it is a promise of God who cannot lie {Num.23:19} and who watches over His word to perform it. {Jer.1:12} So, my brothers and sisters, rejoice and be glad {Ps.118:24} today and everyday as we walk in love to the land of promise!

We each, every believer, has a ministry to fulfill {1Cor.12:7} given to us as we speak the truth in love growing up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ. {Eph.4:15} We have like Paul been entrusted with a treasure that we must guard through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. {2Tim.1:14}

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus,” (Ephesians 2:4-6)


Paul's 2nd Letter to Timothy - Part 5
2 Timothy 1:10-12 — Intimacy with God:
The manifestation of the Lord's promises that had been revealed through the Law and the prophets. A study to get to an understanding of the love affair with Jesus that is Christianity. Love, not relics, rituals or traditions of men—knowing Him not just knowing about Him!

A Prophetic Voice
There is a voice crying out in the wilderness, "Repent and prepare ye the way of the Lord!" That is a true prophetic call in this day in which Jesus said that 'many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.'
