Today we are going to talk about, Rising to the occasion.

The path of obedience is rarely easy. It certainly wasn’t for the Christians in the New Testament era.

When they preached that gospel in Jerusalem, the Jewish religious leaders told them to stop.

How did they respond?

The courageously declared, “Wether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard”

And what was the effect of their obedience?

“They were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness”

As a result, people came to Christ, and the church grew, all because they were willing to overcome challenges in their pursuit of obeying God.

Are you ready to rise to the occasion?

Seek God and ask Him to help you recognise the steps of obedience that He asked you to make.
And ask Him that when your obedience and commitment is challenged that He helps you rise to the occasion so you can glorify Him in all you do.

Until tomorrow
Stay in the blessings

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.

When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.
There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!

You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at

When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you.
