Unlimited Grace part 2

Biblical Characters vs the present generation

 

Acts 9 speak much of the life of Saul more famously known as Paul. The man who has written majority of the New Testament and by his testimony we can see the grace of the Lord work in him. The bible states that Saul was the type of ma who would threaten Christians and would act on his treats. Saul was a Jew and hated the Lord and his disciples his occupation was to persecute believers. Saul’s name was well known and feared among believers. Where everything changes for Saul was when He was on his way Damascus, sent there by the order of the priest to arrest and imprison believers whether man or female.

 

He had an encounter with the Lord Jesus, the man’s people he was persecuting. The conversation between him and Lord went as follow…

 

Acts 9:5

“Saul, Saul why do you persecute me?” “Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go to the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

 

This was when the Lord blinded Saul. Eventually Saul got healed after following the Lords instructions, there are a few things that I like about this passage of scriptures.

 

  1. The Lord at that moment could have strike down Saul for all the crimes he has committed against Jesus followers.
  2. Saul was healed while the Lord could have left him to be blind for the rest of his life.
  3. Ananias obeyed the Lord while knowing he might very well lose his life in Saul’s hand.
  4. Saul received the Lord Jesus as his personal saviour and began to grow in the Lords teachings
  5. Saul started preaching and teaching the gospel to people in the temple and also to the Jews and proving that Jesus is the Messiah

 

The Lord is just and fair as we been through at the start, but here we see the Lords mercy that he has towards people. I see that Jesus also died at the cross for Saul as bad of a person he is, He had probably 1000 of deaths that he was responsible for, God showed him grace. The second point his when God spoke to Saul with an audio voice, we can see that Jesus wants to have a intermit moment with the Lord, establishing a relationship between himself and Saul, while at the same time conveying the importance of the message he wanted to deliver to Saul.

 

As you would read on, on how the story continues we read of Gods faithful servant Ananias. God showed him a vision and went, even though he feared for his life. I believe as he went and stepped out, the Lord strengthened him.

 

The amazing part of the story of Saul is that he gave his life to the Jesus shortly after he was healed. The Lord turned a man who had hardened his hearts against the Lord, that just amazing. Saul after that the Lord had graces him with knowledge and understanding and in a short time preaching and proclaiming the word of God and It says that he baffled the Jews. No one could have ever predicted this man, Saul life changing this drastically and picture him as a believer.

 

I want you to imagine in your minds, the kind of person Saul would have been like if he lived in today’s world? I see someone like Hitler, a man who has authority and has prosecuted Christians and has committed many atrocities in his life. Would you imagine God saving that person or that person life changing for good and becoming a follower of Jesus? For me Hitler would be my modern day Saul.

 

Bringing it back to us, many of us have nowhere near done some of the things this two man described have done in over lives. If the was a scale that would weigh our sins compared to them we would be the skinny boy on the scale and they would be the strong muscular guy on the football or rugby team. Yet we still feel think to ourselves that the Lord won’t forgive us for what we done in the past. Or we may have a misconception who God is. I use to be ashamed for my sin that put Jesus die for me on the cross but as time went by I realised that there is no shame in Christ Jesus. What had happened my understanding changed on how I saw things.

I Am thankful for…

IMG_5588.JPG

2018 has been a great year so to speak so many good things have happened to me, more than the bad. You can say the scales of good outweigh the bad. This year I had the opportunity to travel, meet new people and make new friends and the best part of the year was to see God actually use me to carry out his will. I am also thankful for the people who have taken the time to read my blog and having the opportunity to impact and influence life for the good.

In the beginning of the year I had a prayer list of things that I would like, for I would have loved to have a car by now, a new phone etc. And most of the things I wanted I never saw, it the things I am ever asked for or thought of asking for, those are the thing I am most grateful for. I made new friends and got the chance to meet new people who have added flavour to my life. I am thankful that I was able to grow in confidence this year by writing a book which I though was impossible at this point in my life and even starting a blog has done wonders for my self-esteem. I never thought that there would be people who would be eager to hear what I would have to say, because people know me as the funny guy who is always making jokes and the fun guy to be around.

To be able to have a space where you can truly express your heart and thoughts to the world, speaking your truth in your own words with no one else cutting in. I thank everyone who has pushed me to do what I never would have done if it was not for them I thank everyone who keeps me doing what I am doing by commenting or by sending personal messages that are encouraging. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to travel, I have been Cape Town a place I have never been to before right here in my own country. I had a great time there I wish I had more time to see sites and see more of the place I wish I can go back next year and see more of the place.

My family too I’m so thankful for them, they may be difficult at times and hard to agree with them but they are a blessing to my life. I thank you a God for all that he has given me, I thank him for protecting me. I’m sure I have so much to be thankful for and I don’t even know all the things I should be thankful for but I definitely am thankful.

Adam longs for companion

img_5473

 

My heart longs for you

And you don’t even know it.

Even when I am sober, still I think of you

Your beauty is like that of a dove.

You cause my soul to take flight.

But my mind guards my heart.

From the pain that could have come loving you.

My mind’s eye never shuts.

Watchful of the Gods gift to man, wo…man.

And my heart swifts through all the women.

Trying to find the perfect match, for my soul

So one lone soul may have a soulmate.

Is she the one? Is not the question I ask.

But is she the right one for me?

That’s is the question I ask.

When I think of her, and make my decision.

To wait or pursue, as God intended.

To be honest the world is full of so many beautiful ladies and so many that are good. But it does not mean if the person is good people, they are always the right person for you to be with. And the hardest thing is letting that person go, the other would be waiting for that right person who is your fit. Now that one is a killer, when you go through life waiting for the person that raves your heart. Most people get impatient and try to make things happen on their own and that can led to heart break and pain. But those who wait and act when it the right season will be happy and the wait will be worth it when you meet that person. One important thing as guys and girls, we should always make sure to consult with your best friend, not that friend you’re thinking of but the other one the one upstairs Jesus Christ. He always gives the best advice and knows everything. He will tell you if it’s a red light, yellow or green light. To sum it all up do it with God.

Ministry Partnership Development [ENC]

IMG_0714

My name is Kindness Shikwambana and I am in full time ministry in the University of Venda for Every Nation Campus. I believe in changing lives through the word of God and empowering young leaders to be equipped to share the gospel to others through love, because as ambassadors of Christ, we are all God representative of the faith in with we are believe to Christ. Every believer should feel free to live out their faith and believes without fear.

If we can reach out to young leaders we get the opportunity to have influence in many sphere of society and reaching the next generation as well, by establishing strong biblical foundation, to the people on campus. How do we do that? trough activities that we have in the local church like events socials for examples like color first, which is an event that we have to welcome first years into the family other activates include Engage Friday where we do evangelism.

You may be asking yourself where I fit in this whole picture. In the church I run engage department which is evangelism in the church. We have achieved much in this department as Venda campus. A brief overview is that we were previously not as strong in evangelism we only went out frequently in a year. But From last year around August I was equipped by the church to train other students on campus in our church to go out.

  • Here are some pictures we took through the year. Each picture tells each own story.

This is my small group

We empower young leader through this to be strong leaders. By instilling Godly principals in young man. So they can be better leaders

Engage Friday

IMG_1335

Equipping others to share their faith and who Jesus to others and to grow spiritual in relationship of who Jesus is. there has been many testimonies and salvation through this activity of actively sharing the gospel.

Color First

welcome first years to our campus by hosting a yearly social, to make them feel at home. And also getting to connect with them and get them into family. First year as a student are the hardest and loneliest at times. This is how we reach out to students. we host the event on campus hall.

Venda mission outreach

FQKC8756

In late August a mission team came to help us equip and train young leaders in the church, and during their stay it was recorded that there was around 72 re-commitment and first time commitments to Christ in only two weeks. It only goes to show that the harvest is ready, we only need laborers.

If you would like to partner with me financial, by sowing into my life and to the ministry so I can do what God has called me for. This is what’s called Ministry Partnership, where you pledge to send a certain amount of your choice to me every month. It not just that but a relationship that is formed. If you would like to partner with me and God on what he is doing on Venda campus contact me at my email kindnesslshikwambana@gmail.com, or kindnesslshikwambana65@gmail.com .

Our vision as a movement is

We exist to honor God by establishing Christ centred, spirit empowered and socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation.

Where treasures lay

What is the one thing in life that you would never let go off, is it your partner? Is it your wife or maybe your family? It’s long been said in days of old, where your treasure is there your heart will be. Let’s not put our heart in money there is more important and valuable.

Why write?

285a82bd-2aa7-4f8e-a7a1-85ac5c7d3011

When pen meets paper

And the Ink splashes onto the paper.

My mind becomes clear as water.

As emotions flow like a river.

 

My heart utters its truth in words.

My lips can bear to speak.

It paints and inks a masterpiece.

Of the hearts true beauty captured in words.

 

My blood boils without my pen and paper

My soul is weighed down.

My heart weakened by life’s blows.

Inner thoughts are filter by words.

 

As I write, my broken heart heals.

Pieces put back together.

My mind is at peace.

My body relaxes.

All is well in my Being.

 

And sometimes I write.

To speak truth.

To encourage and inspire.

To change and alter life.

To show my unseen love for you.

Did you know each time you feed the poor you are feeding Jesus, or give cloths you give to Him. Even when you visit someone in prison. In Matthew 10:40-45. You don’t have to go far to make a difference where you are is just fine. Start something that will benefit others. The best live lived is one that is in service of others.

 

Matthew 25:34-40

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 And the King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you id for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.’
