To know the will of God for us is to know the mind of God at any given time, and this helps us choose the right paths in life.
Most people today spend more than half of their lives or all their entire life ignorant of the will of God for them. Maybe they’ve heard about it but couldn’t make anything out of it, or perhaps they were not given all the information that was needed to help them make a decision about God’s will for them.
Today’s exposition is titled, The blessing of waiting for the Lord. Psalm 40:1-2 One important attribute of God every believer should know is His patience. If we understand this, we will have a great, happy […]

Ephesians 3:16-19; Hebrews 12:2; John 10:17-19
I understand at times, when people try to describe the depth of Gods love – how he saved them, perhaps. And they try to sing or describe the awe of His mercies towards them, how deep, how unimaginable and how tirelessly He ran after them for their salvation, that they could find no better word to express this great love.
But all the same, can we say Gods love is reckless? God’s love is intentional. It is purposeful. It has a plan and a future, and he want us to know it.
This exposition is to help you see that purposeful nature of His love so you can purposefully love him too and come to the knowledge of His truth.
So, in your own way, how can you describe the love of God?
Hebrews 12:22 says that, “The blood of Jesus speaketh better things than the blood of Abel.”
To understand the verse is to understand what the blood of this two people spake.
Gen. 4:9-11 made us to know that when Cain killed his brother Abel, the blood of Abel from the ground cried to God for vengeance. So, the blood of Abel spake vengeance. But on the other hand, Luke 23:33-34 tells us that Jesus asked the Father for our forgiveness while on the cross.
The blood of Jesus spake forgiveness. This is were the difference lies.
And to Jesus who is THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW TESTAMENT…
Why is he the mediator of the new testament? It is because he came in the new testament to bring forgiveness and redemption, not judgment or condemnation. He said in John 3:17 For God came NOT into the world (in the new testament) to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved.
But for us to be saved, we have to not refuse him that spake. We must first receive him to receive his salvation. Think about it.
John 1:12 says, “But as many as receive him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God”
This days, it is easy for believers to forget the kind of people God expect them to be when they become satisfied with the title of a believer more than the progressive work that should […]
