“All things that the father hath are mine: therefore, said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you”. John 16:15

Not many of us can describe our relationship with Jesus Christ. We may express our relationship with God generally, but that of Jesus becomes a little bit difficult. That is because we cannot tell exactly if there is any specific relationship we ought to have with the Master, other than the one we have with God. With Jesus, we do not need to trouble God because Jesus would do everything for us. That sounds a little bit odd, you may say.   But I tell you today that Jesus has every power of God; For Jesus is the manifestation of God’s word! Also, the Holy Spirit cannot act on His own; He takes authority from the Master. 

I invite you today to a renewed personal relationship with Christ, the one who is Lord and saviour of the world. This invitation has become necessary to lighten the burden that we currently bear, and to tap into His fountain of love and mercy. It will interest you to know that whenever we take a step toward Jesus, He moves several steps toward us with open arms. My first intimate encounter with Jesus several years ago was when I thought the end had come. I was ill, and even after medication, there was no improvement. I could sense I was undergoing a dangerous situation. I became utterly confused. Then the spirit whispered to me, “tell Jesus to heal you”. Without hesitation, I whispered back, “Jesus, please heal me, I don’t want to die, please heal me” Within a minute, the pain disappeared, and I was completely restored. 

Since then, I have talked with him freely about every life situation. The word of God is telling us today to begin a friendship with Jesus Christ. Life is easier with him, and he will move several steps ahead of you if you only accept him into your life and obey his commands. Talk to him about your problems now. He will give you rest.


Lord Jesus, I thank you for this opportunity to know you better. I thank you for your love, guidance and mercy. I thank you for replacing my yoke with yours. I thank you for restoration, power and victory over all things that give me worry. Thank you, Lord. AMEN.
