Jesus – Our great Example of True Humility – Zac Poonen

There are only two spirits operating on the earth today. One, the spirit of Satan (Lucifer) urging people to go up – whether it be in the world or in Christendom. The other, the Spirit of Christ leading people to go down like their Master. Like the corn of wheat, Jesus went down, and all His true disciples can be identified unmistakably by this characteristic.

The humility of Jesus is seen in all its brilliance in His death. There never was a more unjust trial than the one Jesus went through. Yet, He submitted to injury, insult, injustice, humiliation and ridicule, in silence. He did not call down curses on His enemies. He neither threatened revenge nor called for angelic assistance. He gave up all His rights as the Son of God. The ‘clenched fist’ is an appropriate symbol of the human race – signifying both the desire to hold on to one’s rights, powers and possessions, as well as the desire to fight back when attacked. Jesus on the other hand, willingly opened His palms to receive the nails on the cross. His palms were always open, giving, giving and giving. Finally He gave up His own life as well. This is true humility.

All that Jesus taught – Zac Poonen

The Great Commission that Jesus gave His apostles consisted of TWO parts:
1. To preach the gospel to everyone (Mark 16:15,16). Thankfully, many Christian churches are doing this.
2. To make disciples, baptize them, and then teach them all that Jesus taught (Matt.28:29,20). Unfortunately, this most important second-half of the great commission is not being done sufficiently, in most churches. But without this part, the gospel message is incomplete.
CFC has sought to obey this neglected second part of the Great Commission for the last 40 years. We are now seeking to reach “the uttermost parts of the earth” as well with this message – through the Internet.
A new series of 80 studies (of about 25 minutes each) by Brother Zac Poonen titled ALL THAT JESUS TAUGHT is available freely on YouTube at:

You are invited to listen to the whole series. And do pass this information on to others as well. The time is short. Let us spread the Word everywhere. God bless you as you do this.

Servants of God / Christlikeness / Followers of Jesus [1. Love One another]

If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him. -John 12:26

If We say that we are servants of God, We should follow Christ as He said. Following Christ is not easy at all. But God is ready to help us by giving His Spirit. Let us receive His Holy Spirit humbly. If We follow Jesus,we become His Servant and we also become His disciple.

In what are the things we have to follow Jesus,

1. Love One another

To love like Jesus, we need to understand a simple truth. We cannot live the Christian life on our own. All of us want to love like Jesus. We want to be generous, forgiving, and compassionate enough to love people unconditionally. But no matter how hard we try, it just doesn’t work. Our humanness gets in the way. Yet Jesus tells us to love as he did: 

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. -John 13:34

Jesus gave us the key, however: “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.” -Mark 10:27

Whoever abides in Me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.-John 15:5

Surrendering and abiding are things we can do only through the power of the Holy Spirit. When we live that truth, we can begin to love like Jesus.

Dear Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in. Lord, We have decided to follow Jesus. Help us to love one another even our enemies as Jesus did. Lord, Give us Grace to do this. We can’t do this without the Power of Holy Spirit. We are here to please You Lord. In Jesus Precious Name, We pray. Amen!
