To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.
By C. S. Lewis


Failure is the cause of being detached or disconnected. If a given opportunity is not taken, destruction becomes inevitable because further detachment leads to death… Get connected!

To be connected is to always have access to the needed source which means that whatever you need is always available through this connection which is supplied by the source. We sometimes wonder why a specific person is so successful and when asking around it is said that “He is connected”. A person who is connected have access to things others do not.

The question then is: What is the source you need to be connected to and what do you need to get connected?

Read John 15:1-11.

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he [is the one that] bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:4-5 ESV).

The Father cares for everyone connected to Jesus (John 15:1-3)

  • Jesus is the actual vine, the true source of God’s riches and blessing. God the Father is the Proprietor and Caretaker of the vine. Jesus makes it clear here that He is depended on the Father and that they always work together (John 15:1). We also read about God the Father and Jesus the Word working together in John 1:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made (John 1:1-3 ESV).

  • God is the Caretaker which takes away the branch that bears no fruit by lifting them from the ground. This gives the branch an opportunity to bear fruit. Those branches who already bears fruit is pruned to bear even more fruit. God the Father’s goal is to care for the vine and the branches in such a way that it will produce more fruit (John 15:2).
  • At first glance the next verse seems to be out of place not fitting into the story Jesus is telling. Jesus is saying to the disciples that they are already clean because of the words He had spoke to them (John 15:3). Paul also speaks about Jesus Christ cleansing the church by the washing of the word (Ephesians 5:26). Isaiah (1:16) talks about being washed as to cease from doing evil. Malachi (3:1-2) likened the Messiah to a refiner’s fire and the launderers’ soap. In Leviticus (12-14) we also read that sacrificial offerings were made to be cleansed from sickness and sins. Jesus therefore came to cleanse mankind from sin and sickness as our sacrificial offering. This means that those who were changed by Jesus, the Word of God, needs less or even no pruning.
  • Let me explain God’s caring with an example. You just received your new car you waited for almost five months after ordering it. You are overly excited and makes a daily effort in caring for it. In the mornings before work you start-up the engine and wait for it to warm up before driving it. You park it in such away that other drivers will not be able to scratch your car with their car-doors. You open and close the doors for the passengers also as to ensure the doors are not scratched or slammed. You regularly make sure the tyre pressure is correct and there is enough oil and petrol in the car. You wash the car at least once a week and only use a specific scratch free cloth and car shampoo. The beauty of this new washed car before your eyes is always worth the effort because of the satisfaction you get out of the car.
  • God is also excited about us, His children, and wants to take care of us (Matthew 10:31). He is always with us (Acts 18:10) and provides for us each and everyday (Isaiah 41:10). We can trust God as our Caretaker and Provider because He speaks into our lives, changes and moulds us daily (Psalm 32:8). He also removes us from circumstances and relationships that we should not experience, to protect us and He gives us the strength needed for circumstances that we have to experience (Isaiah 41:10).
  • We should therefore stop fearing and trust God to guide us. When trials and tribulations come and we are challenged by many obstacles, we may trust the Lord. He will always guide us making sure that we reach the other side.
  • For us to always be able to receive this care from God we need to be connected and stay connected to Him.

Staying connected and receive what ever you desire (John 15:4-8)

  • The Greek word “μένω” pronounced “menō” is a verb that means to remain in a given place, state, relation or expectancy (Strong 2008:§G3306). Abide in this context is to stay in a specific relation to Jesus. Thus stay connected!
  • We need to be connected to Him as a branch is connected to the vine which give the branch the ability to bear fruit. If the branch is broken off the connection is severed and the branch dries out and dies. This branch is good for nothing else except to make a fire with (John 15:4-6).
  • Those branches connected to the vine are the people who are connected to Jesus and listens to the words He speaks. These people are able to receive what ever they desire because they are connected. They can therefore bear much fruit and by so doing give glory to God (John 15:7-8, 1 John 5:14).
  • If for example you want to browse the internet you need an internet connection. There are some cheap ways to connect like from a coffee shop’s wi-fi, but it is too slow and your are limited to what you may download. Although you have the biggest and fastest computer, without a proper connection you can do nothing. When you finally decide to install an unlimited ADSL connection at home the whole internet becomes freely available.
  • When we are connected to Jesus all the divine riches of God is available for us, which enables us to bear more fruit.

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (2 Peter 1:2-4 NKJV).

  • With these fruit we are enabled to love and care for other people. It is difficult at times and we may fail to share love, joy and peace with some people, but this is why we trust in Father God. He is faithful and will keep working in us that we may bear more fruit. The important thing is to learn how to stay connected to Jesus.

Stay connected by living a life of love (John 15:9-11)

  • Jesus commands us to abide in His love in the same way He abides in God the Father’s love. He does this by doing what the Father had commanded Him. We also abide in Jesus’ love by doing what He had commanded us (John 15:10). Jesus commanded us to love God with our whole beings and our neighbours as ourselves (John 13:34). God the Father loves Jesus and in the same way Jesus loves us and therefore we also need to love (John 15:9-10).

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34-35 NKJV).

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love (1 John 4:8 NKJV).

  • One of the (if not the biggest) reasons we do not abide in Jesus’ love is because we battle to believe that God can love us. Yes we are able to find many reasons why a Holy God cannot love a sinful person. The fact is: “God is Love” and whatever He does is motivated by love (1 John 4:8) (Terblanche 2014). We can therefore be certain of His love for each one of us. Take that step and get connected to Him and allow yourself to receive and experience His love for you.
  • When we allow the words of Jesus to saturate us (Job 22:21-27) His joy remains in us and we become overflowed with joy (John 15:9-10). We are then recognised as Jesus’ disciples when we abide in Him and allow others to experience our love for them (John 13:35).

Jesus makes it clear to us that it is important to stay connected by displaying the results of being connected and the consequences of not being connected. Remember this one thing “STAY CONNECTED” to the source of life! Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6) and I challenge each and everyone to get connected to Jesus and stay connected to Him! We do this by receiving and experiencing Jesus’ love for us, therefore living a life of love. Love God with your whole being and those around you as yourself and your joy will be full!!! Remember: “stay connected through love”!


by Joshua Drucker

Ephesians 4:17-19 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18) Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19) Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

There is a subtle strategy satan uses to take control of our lives. The Bible calls this lasciviousness, and it means to have no restraint.
Lasciviousness has been preached as being extreme immorality, but it does not start out that way. It begins with just a few seemingly innocent thoughts. Then those thoughts grow until they begin to produce serious sin.
I have lived a life of lasciviousness before. A life filled with lustful desires. A life that is going 100 MPH with no brakes. A life where you will do anything to satisfy your wants.

Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Before I had lived this life of lasciviousness, I had already heard of the word. The late David Wilkerson wrote a great piece titled, “Turning THE GRACE OF GOD INTO LASCIVIOUSNESS.” In his writing, he talked about Christians, saved men and women, who think that they can continue in their sins, expecting the grace of God to cover them. But if you will look at the above verse, the Bible calls these people who think these thoughts ungodly men.

Ephesians 4: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

As I was reading over Ephesians 4:19 today, I noticed two words that I had never paid attention to before. The words are “past feeling”. Those two words hit me like a ton of bricks. Past feelings. After reading these two words, I then read the rest of the verse, and it says, “Have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.”
What this verse means is that before you arrive at lasciviousness, you first must by pass your feelings. Please bear with me, I do have a point.
When we first begin to commit a certain sin, our feelings tell us that we don’t need to be doing it. Even though we do the sin, it doesn’t feel right. The conviction of the Holy Spirit is present. We feel dirty and unclean after the act is committed.
When I first started to do drugs, it didn’t feel right. I didn’t feel right driving to the dealers house. It didn’t feel right driving back to the house or hotel where I was going to do the drugs. And it didn’t feel right after I committed the act.
However, after the third or fourth time going through the process of buying and using the drugs, something began to happen. My feelings began to subside. I was no longer scared to drive down the road with illegal drugs in my car. I was no longer fearful of the GBI busting down the door of the drug house. And I no longer felt guilty after I had consumed the drugs. What was happening? I had past my feelings.

Ephesians 4:19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

The above verse states that when you are past feelings you are then given over unto lasciviousness, a life with NO RESTRAINTS.
The drug world gave me a front row seat to a life of no restraints. Not only in my life, but with the people I was involved with.
I have seen women smoking Meth with one hand as they held their two year old child with the other. My best friend years ago sold a very nice car that his father gave him for seven hundred dollars worth of crack. He drove to Atlanta with a luxury car, and he left there walking home with a crack pipe and a pocket of rocks.
I apologize for being so graphic, but I was at a house one day, and there was a girl there who had sex with almost every male that walked into the house that night. She ran around the house naked, high on ecstasy, begging anyone and everyone to have sex with her. What was wrong with this girl? She was past feelings , and living a life of lasciviousness – NO RESTRAINTS.
Past feelings, is a very scary place to be at my friend. One of the greatest gifts that God has given us is conviction. I praise the Lord today that the conviction of the Holy Spirit is present in my life. I praise God for my feelings. Because at times in my life I was “past them.”
You need to know something about the life of lasciviousness. You don’t arrive there overnight. Oh, no, the devil is too crafty for that. It is a process. Little by little. First it starts with a thought, and then you act on the thought and commit the sin. And the first few times you feel guilty, then before you know it, you are committing that certain sin day after day and it doesn’t even bother you. You begin to live a life of no restraints and it becomes normal to you. You are past feelings.
If you ask any man or woman who has had an affair, they will tell you that it didn’t just happen. Even when they get caught, they may just say that it just happened, but they know that is far from the truth.
Affairs begin with flirty text messages. Love emails written during lunch breaks. Face Book exchanges that at first start off innocent, but end illicit. Casual friendship that turned into erotic romances.
Most people who get caught having an affair don’t get caught the first time. Do you know why? Because at first they are careful and strategic. They go above and beyond to take every caution necessary. However, as the weeks and months pass on, they no longer feel guilty about cheating on their mate. They then move past feelings and begin to live a life of no restraints. Which eventually leads to exposure.
I don’t know why the Holy Spirit stopped me dead in my tracks this morning at the two words, past feelings. And I don’t know who I am ministering to today. However, I know that this word is for someone.
You have been playing around and playing around in a certain sin for way too long and the Holy Spirit is telling you today, “STOP IT.” You maybe feeling guilty but the pleasure is way too good to quit. If this is you, the Holy Spirit is telling you to stop it.
And who knows, this word may be for someone who is past the feelings of guilt and you are NO LONGER convicted of your sin. Or maybe you have been deceived into thinking that the grace of God will cover up your willing acts. If you are deceived into thinking these thoughts, let me remind you one more time of Jude 4.

Jude 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

I very rarely send out a word of rebuke. I very rarely preach against sin. Not because it is not needed, but because we all KNOW what sin is. I don’t have to tell you that lying, stealing, cursing, etc..etc are sins – YOU KNOW. My reason for sending this word out is to wake up someone who is past feelings and headed down a road to destruction.

Romans 13:11-12 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12) The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

WAKE UP! Wake up my friend before it is too late. Wake up before you throw away everything that the Lord has blessed you with. Wake up before you lose your spouse, your children, your health, your ministry, or your FREEDOM. Wake up!
Get out of your sins today. I didn’t write this word to belittle or beat you down. I wrote this word to wake you up.
I know what it is like to live a life without restraints, and I am here to tell you that it is a horrible life. If I can prevent just one person today from going down that road then I have done my job.
If you are sleeping with a person whom you are not married to and the conviction is gone; you need to wake up and get out of that bed. Even if you have to sleep on the couch, get out of that bed.
If you are cheating on your spouse either physically or emotionally, I beg you to wake up. That one moment of pleasure is not worth what you will lose in the end.
If you are robbing God out of His ten percent tithe every week, I beg you to wake up. It doesn’t matter if you believe in tithing or not, if you don’t give God ten percent of your income the Bible says that you are robbing God. WAKE UP and pay the ten percent before you lose the other ninety percent.

Malachi 3:8-11 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. 9) Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. 10) Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. 11) And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.

This word is not just for you, it is for me also. It is time for ALL of us to wake up and begin to live a pure, honest, and holy life. God doesn’t send a word like this to beat us down. He sends it to lift us up. Today, let us all arise out of the ashes of our sins and let us begin to live the life that God has called and ordained for us to live…WAKE UP!!

God Bless

Jesus freed us from condemnation and gave us the power to be free from sin!

Has no one condemned you? ”
“No one, Lord,” she answered. “Neither do I condemn you,” said Jesus. “Go, and from now on do not sin anymore.”
(John 8:10-11).

“I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.”
(John 8:12).

“When Christ calls a man, he bids him to come and die”.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

No, we are not perfect, but we can choose to walk in the light, and lay bare our sins.

But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
(1John 1:7-9).

We are not perfect believers because we have no sin, but because we invite Jesus (THE LIGHT) and Father God into our lives and into absolutely every situation we may face – good or bad…

This does not give free reign to sin, but freedom from condemnation.

Total Fulfilment

Why do we do what we do?

“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.
Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance. Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you— The sure mercies of David. Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people, A leader and commander for the people.
Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, And nations who do not know you shall run to you, Because of the LORD your God, And the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.”
Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
“For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; And it shall be to the LORD for a name, For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
(Isaiah 55:1-13 NKJV).

There are so many things that we do, but so few of it actually brings fulfilment.
Man was created with specific needs such as love, acceptance, recognition and security.
These needs can only be satisfied by God Himself, but we do not always recognize it and go find satisfaction from people, things and places that actually leaves a bigger hole in our lives.

Here in Isaiah 55 we see the invitation from God inviting us to come freely…
We do not need money, riches, greatness, power, strength or perfection to accept this invitation, we only need to respond to God’s word and come to Him. Just look at the blessing and the reward of accepting this invitation. We are satisfied with food and drink, our souls will be delighted in abundance, we will enter into an everlasting covenant and we will become a place of salvation to the nations (all people)…

Jesus said in John 4 that His food is to do the will of His Father who send Him.
We will also be able to eat and drink from this when we walk in God’s will, but first we must accept His invitation!

“For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.
(Jeremiah 2:13 NKJV).

God’s invitation is for mankind to return to Him and to correct these two evils. We leave the fountain of living water when we reject God’s invitation, or when we walk away from God and allow other things in our lives to dictate what and how we do things.

Let us look at a few scriptures regarding The Fountain of Life:

For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.
(Psalms 36:9 NKJV).

The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, To turn one away from the snares of death.
(Proverbs 14:27 NKJV).

O LORD, the hope of Israel, All who forsake You shall be ashamed. “Those who depart from Me Shall be written in the earth, Because they have forsaken the LORD, The fountain of living waters.”
(Jeremiah 17:13 NKJV).

And it will come to pass in that day That the mountains shall drip with new wine, The hills shall flow with milk, And all the brooks of Judah shall be flooded with water; A fountain shall flow from the house of the LORD And water the Valley of Acacias.
(Joel 3:18 NKJV).

“In that day a fountain shall be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for uncleanness.
(Zechariah 13:1 NKJV).

And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
(Revelation 21:6 NKJV).

We can see here that God is the fountain of life and we may drink from Him!!!
This fountain brings salvation, and cleanses us from sin and all other uncleanness…

What will satisfy you?

As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.
(Psalms 17:15 NKJV).

Remember success is not a destination but a way of living.

This is a destination – (I will be successful when I’m rich)

What is success for you?

Thomas Dreyer

Life abundantly and eternal

God’s desire is for you to have Life – abundantly and eternal. Let me explain this by a poster I’ve once saw:


One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:

“LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me.”

The LORD replied:
“My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”

The single pair of footprints indicates the very nature of God’s loving care. He carries you when you can no longer walk the road of life alone. But at some point He will put you down on your feet again and allow you to walk next to Him. He won’t leave you or forsake you. (More on this later.) But the difficult part of your journey is eased by His presence. From this point on you can walk the road together with Him, knowing He is there to pick you up.

Salvation is not some mystical euphoria. It is based on FACT – the fact that God loves you, you sinned, He made a better way and that way is Jesus Christ. OK, you may feel you have no contact with this loving God. Let us help you to have an eternal Friend and Father. Four simple truths will lead you to have Him as Friend and Father:

  • God loves you and has a plan for your life.

    • God’s love: God so loved the world [that means all of us] that He gave his Son, so that who ever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
    • God’s plan: Jesus said: I have come so that you may have life and have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)
    • The second truth shows the dilemma man is faced with.
  • Man has sinned and is separated from God, thus denying him the love and plan God has for his life.
    • We have sinned: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
    • Man has been separated from God: The wages of sin are death [death means here to be spiritually separated from God]. (Romans 6:23)
    • The third truth gives the solution.
  • God made a better way and sent Jesus Christ as Saviour to bridge the separation man experiences.
    • He died in our place, taking our sins on Him: But God shows his love for us in that Christ died for us when we were still sinners. (Romans 5:8)
    • But He rose from the dead: And showed Himself to many while speaking of the things of the Kingdom of God. (Acts 1:3)
    • He said of Himself: I am the Way, and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the father but by Me. (John 14:6)
    • It is not sufficient to only know about these three truths.
  • Accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour and knowing that He wants to be the bridge you need to get back to God.
    • You have to personally accept Him as Saviour: But all that have accepted Him, to them He has given the power to become children of God, to those who believe in His Name. (John 1:12)
    • You have to accept Him by faith: By grace you have been saved, by faith, and not by yourselves; it is grace from God… (Ephesians 2:8,9)
    • By accepting Him as Saviour, you are responding to His call: Behold, I stand at the door and I knock. If someone hears my voice and opens the door, I will enter and go to him. (Revelations 3:20)

You can accept Him at this very moment by faith which is expressed in prayer. If you have never prayed before, take the following as a prayer of faith:

Lord Jesus, I realise that I have tried to walk the road of life on my own and that I have sinned. I now open the door of my life to you and accept you as Lord and Saviour. Thank you that my sins have been forgiven and that you have given me eternal life. I ask you to take control of my life and guide me. Make me the type of person You want me to be.

If this prayer reflects what you are feeling right now, pray it and He will save you. But how can I be sure that I have been accepted by God through Jesus? Refer to Revelations 3:20. “Behold, I stand at the door and I knock. If someone hears my voice and opens the door, I will enter and go to him.” It is a promise! And He will keep it.

The Bible promises eternal life to each person who accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour: This I have written so that you may know that you have eternal life. (1 John 5:11-13). Remember that we said at the beginning that He will never forsake us? Here’s the proof: I will never leave you nor forsake you.(Hebrews 13:5).

Some guidelines are given here to assist you in the new walk in faith:

  • Don’t depend on feelings. You don’t feel that you are accepted by God, you
    know it by faith. Read John 14:21.

  • Now that you have accepted Him as Saviour, the following things have taken place or are about to take place:
    • Christ Jesus has entered your life (Revelations 3:20, Colossians 1:27)
    • Your sins have been forgiven (Colossians 1:14)
    • You have become a child of God (John 1:12)
    • You have begun with the great adventure fro which you have been created by God in the first place (John 10:10; 2 Corinthians 5:14)

What a wonderful thought to know that God is not angry with me and that my sins have been forgiven! Why don’t you thank Him in prayer for this, right now?

What now? You are like a young plant, ready to grow, but will need some encouragement and a little help from your friends. Do the following:

  • Prayer is important: Pray regularly, anywhere, any-time. Read John 15:7.

  • Read the Bible: This is your main source of information, knowledge, growth and faith. Read Acts 17:11

  • Be obedient: Obedience to God in everything you do is important. Read John 14:21.

  • Proclaim your faith: Do this by word and deed. Read Matthew 4:19 and John 15:8.

  • Show your new-found faith: Trust in God for EVERYTHING. Read 1 Peter 5:7.
