Romans 12:1-2

Dear Father, dweller of my temple,

Please give me the mind of Christ and make my body a temple of the
spirit of holiness which is his.

Make me holy through and through. May my whole spirit, soul, and
body be kept blameless by your power until the coming of our Lord
Jesus Christ.

I trust you to do this because you are the one who has called me,
and you are faithful. Your word says that you will do it!

By the authority of Jesus and in his name I ask for this growth in
grace. Amen.

Faith That Goes the Distance
Pastor Ken Polk
"The just shall live by faith" Romans 1:17
God, throughout the scriptures spoke through anointed men to convey the message, that those whom have been justified must live by faith. It is paramount that we become strong in faith, because we are living in days which will test the very fabric of our belief system.
In Hebrews 11:6 we find written these words, "But without faith it is impossible to please him." If you conduct an extensive word study on the word "please" you'll discover to please someone you'll have to be in agreement with them. So let's paraphrase that verse. But without faith it is impossible to line your life up in agreement with God. Therefore, in order to tap into the rich resources God has for every believer, your life must be in agreement with His. The success of your Christian walk and relationship with God is predicated by the level of your faith. Moreover, faith is the foundation of your Christian experience.
The word "faith" is properly defined by the Greek word pistis. Pistis is defined as firm persuasion, or to persuade, a conviction based upon hearing. It implies knowledge of, assent to, and confidence in divine truths, and revelations of the Word of God. The scripture proclaim "Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17. The problem is most people take the word "hearing" literality. However, it's not speaking of hearing with your physical ears, but hearing within your spirit being.
The only way the word is going to produce faith in the life of a believer; the word must become a living rehema within the soul of man, thus producing a life changing experience. Simply, the engrafted word becomes alive and real in the heart of the hearer, and he or she will begin to act according to the Word of God applying biblical principles to their daily life. This transformation of life will also change the quality of their life. The level of your faith is contingent upon the amount of the living word engrafted within your inner man.
So how does one faith grow? I quoted earlier from Romans 10:17, "Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God." Looking at the seed principle mostly everything is the product of a seed. Man, animals, plants and even fruit has its origin from a seed. Jesus said "the sower sows the word." Mark 4:14. In Luke 8:11 Jesus told us that, "the seed is the Word of God." When a pastor or teacher ministers the word, he or she is sowing seed. The seed of the word is trying to penetrate the soul of man. Once the (word) breaches the soul it will either give birth to a living word (rhema), or it will be aborted.
According to Luke 8:12-14 Jesus said, "that being an indifferent hearer, the cares of this world, deceitfulness of riches, and being not rooted in Christ" would cause the seed of the word to become aborted. However, if the seed of the word is birthed within the soul a living word (rhema) is born. This living word will influence the spirit of man prompting a visible outward illustration of Christ and the faith walk. The just shall live by his faith.
The Bible speaks of various levels of faith ranging from a measure to the God kind of faith. The stronger you are in faith will determine how victorious you will be in your spiritual life. Is your faith strong enough to go the distance?

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my
strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I
rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest
upon me.

-- 2 Corinthians 12:9

While other preachers in Paul's day were parading around their
credentials, Paul refused to get into a bragging contest to prove
he was the most impressive of Jesus' disciples. Even though he had
the religious education and Jewish pedigree to silence his rivals,
he preferred to acknowledge the areas of his weakness where God had
triumphed over his own limitations. Let's be careful today about
examining and determining the ministry-worth of someone based on
his or her resume. Instead, let's look for people in whom God's
grace has triumphed.

Almighty and loving Father, thank you for sustaining and
enabling me to serve you in ways I would never have dreamed of
doing. Please help me serve you faithfully as I depend upon your
grace. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Romans 5:18-24

Dear Father, bestower of eternal life,

How amazing that, even though one man's disobedience leads to
condemnation, the obedience of Jesus acquits us, makes us righteous
and leads to life!

Thank you that, whereas law increased the trespass, your grace
abounded all the more! Sin reigned in death, but your grace reigned
through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ
our Lord.

Thank you, Father in heaven. Thank you, thank you, thank you! In
the name of Jesus, our Savior and Justifier, I offer this thanks
and praise for your wonderful grace. Amen.

Romans 5:12-17

Dear Father, creator of good and righter of wrongs,

You created a good and wonderful environment for mankind. But for
our first mother and father it was not enough. Sin came into the
world through them, and death through sin, and so death spread to
all, because all sinned.

Your free gift was not like the trespass. It was greater! If many
died through one man's trespass, how much more will your grace
abound! How much more will that free gift abound for the masses of
mankind in the grace of that one man Jesus Christ!

Thank you that in him we receive all the more abundantly from your
grace! How grateful we are for receiving the free gift of
righteousness to reign in our lives!

Thank you, Father in heaven. In the name of Jesus, our Savior and
Justifier, I offer this thanks and praise for your wonderful grace.

The New Edition
Aqualyn Toi Jones
When was the last time you purchased or received something new? Maybe it was a cell phone, a car, or an outfit. It could've been a new pair of shoes, a job, or even a relationship.
There's just something about the newness of things. You value it more. You take better care of it. You can't wait to tell others about it. However, that eagerness doesn't last.
Simply think of all the old things you have acquired over the years. Soon, just like all the old "new things", the newer "new things" becomes a little boring. We settle down into the humdrum of business as usual. Now, it's just a cell phone, a car, or a pair of shoes. Our affection for it fades as we start to focus on the next new thing.
We can upgrade our phones, trade-in our relationships and change jobs when we're bored. We can just get the new edition. Unfortunately, this same mentality spills over into our lives with Christ.
Have you ever heard someone say?
"Before I was saved." or
"When I was still in sin."
If you're like me, you've said it yourself.
As Christians, we like to think of our lives in two categories: Before-Christ and After-Christ.
If you and I were to finish the sentences above, I'm sure we could fill a book. One of the best things about being a Christian is the new life we have in Christ. It trumps the old life every time.
Sometimes and somewhere along the way, we are tempted to exchange the new life in Christ for the old way of living. Life starts to happen again. It rains on your parade more than once. Things that you thought you wouldn't experience as a Christian seem to resurface after Christ!
How do you handle it when the old life threatens to choke the newness out of life in Christ? And what does this new life really mean anyway?
I love Merriam-Webster's definition of the word new. It means having recently come into existence. Is it possible that we never truly existed before coming to Christ? When you accept Christ in your life, you come into an existence that you never knew about.
You never really understood the measure of His sacrifice. You never had a Father like God. You didn't think it was possible for someone to know everything about you, and still love you. And yet, He does. You thought you were free, but liberation has taken on a totally different meaning. Life is not the same.
I want to challenge you (and myself) to remember that there is no new edition of the new life in Christ. There is nothing better. 2 Corinthians 5:17 reminds us that "If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new."

This scripture doesn't simply say that anyone in Christ could or will be a new creation. It guarantees that he is. You and I are new in Him. The life we now live has greater understanding and subsequently, greater responsibility. We should never settle for anything routine in our relationship with God.
Every single day is new. Every single old thing is just that old. It's useless and ineffective. After all, it's called the old life for a reason and this edition is just fine.

Time to Refresh
Cory Bradley
Semantics, semantics, semantics.
Did you know words can shape our reality and frame our very world?
If so, then maybe you'll agree with me that (in this New Year), NEW may not be so NEW anymore! I strongly believe that this year, new may actually be something old. Something original.
After all the New Year hoopla fades away, I wonder if perhaps our focus this year should not be as much on looking for something new to occur in our lives, but rather to rediscover what we already possess in God.
To rediscover what He has already given "in" us before the foundations of the world.
This year, I began with this idea in mind:
It's time to REFRESH.
Isaiah 46:9-10 says,"Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things that are not yet done."
This passage of scripture popped an interesting metaphor into my head. On every internet browser, there is a REFRESH button. Usually, you need to hit this button if the page's content needs to be updated or if the page is in freeze mode or somehow stuck.
Sometimes you even need to hit the REFRESH button when the page has not fully downloaded all of its contents.
You may even need to hit the REFRESH button when we lose the connection with the invisible communication signals in the atmosphere. See where I'm going with this?
This new year, when your life's hardware seems to freeze or if the page you believe you should be on is not fully loaded with all of the icons you think you need, it may not be time to look for something new.
All that you need is already in you.
It maybe time for you to just hit the refresh button.
Try it today

God Is Doing A New Thing
Dr. Creflo A. Dollar
It is a new day and God wants to do something new in your life! If you are a Believer, you have a right to receive the manifestation of every word God has spoken over your life. As you lay hold of it by faith, it will come to pass. It is easy to become discouraged when you don’t see things happening quickly enough, but as you seek His face through praise, prayer and worship, He will begin to reveal more of who He is to you. The more you know about Him, the more confident you will become in His ability to do exactly what He said He would do.
You may have been going through some troubling circumstance or struggling with a certain situation for some time now. But the good news is that your days of strugg ling are over! If you want to experience the power of God in your life, it is critical that you find out what God promises in His Word. He doesn’t want you to stay in your current situation; He wants to take you to new levels of glory every day! All it takes is your unwavering belief in what He says in His Word.
Isaiah 43:19 (AMP) says, “Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it?” God is a God of new beginnings. That’s right! He is multifaceted and always wants to show you an aspect of Himself that you have never seen before. In addition, He wants to do some new things in your life. He wants you to see and experience abundance like you’ve never before experienced it.
Expectation is key to receiving the new things God desires to do in your life. Whether it is healing, deliverance, financial breakthrough or restoration of a relationship, God will come through for you if you expect Him to. He is a loving Father Who wants to bless you.
As you expect to see the goodness of God manifest in your life, you must lay hold of it by faith. Nothing in the Kingdom of God works without it. Habakkuk 2:4 says, “…but the just shall live by his faith.” In addition, you must be sure that you are walking in love—first toward God, and second toward others. These two commandments are the keys to activating your faith and confidence in God.
Finally, your words—specifically the Word of God that you confess—will connect you to a new reality of living, one that is characterized by God’s glory overtaking you. If you’re not saying anything, you’re not creating anything! You have to use your God-given authority in order to begin experiencing something new.
Your “new thing” may be debt freedom or buying a new home. Whatever it is, find scriptures on those areas and begin meditating on them. Get them in your heart until they become so real to you that you can’t see things any other way than through God’s eyes. Having the blueprint of a new reality and way of life in your heart and mind through consistent meditation will fuel your faith. Then when you speak the Word with boldness, it will come to pass. But first, your heart must be established in the truths that are contained in it.
I want you to begin thinking differently about your life. It’s time to get rid of the old attitudes, habits and lifestyle that you have been living and holding onto and usher in the new! By standing on God’s Word, walking in faith and love and using your authority, you can literally change your reality. God is ready to reveal His glory to you in a new way; the question is, are you ready to receive it?

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
