Hello Church,

 

We at Mark Krom Ministries have been directed by the Holy Spirit to provide a series; we’ll call it “Spirit Food”.  Our purpose in doing this is to assist you in your spiritual growth within the body of Jesus Christ (the anointed one and His anointing).

 

As the physical body requires food for nourishment, the spirit also requires feeding for spiritual growth.  Hosea 4:6 says – “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge …”.  Brothers and sisters in Christ, we truly desire you to live blessed lives in accordance with Deuteronomy 28:1-14.  To live this type of life, however, if you have not already done so, make the quality decision to make God’s Word the final authority in your life.  These sessions will aid in your spiritual growth process.  Once you are presented with what the Word of God has to say about an issue, you are responsible for receiving His love, grace, mercy & favor; and the gift of His righteousness.  Remember, you are greatly blessed, highly favored, and deeply loved by your Heavenly Father.

 

This month, let's focus on:

Matthew 8:10 & 13 (NKJV) – “When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!  Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.”

 

There are two places in the Bible whom Jesus said they had “great faith”.  The first was the Roman centurion whose servant was healed by Jesus’ word (Matthew 8:5-13), and the other was the Syro-Phoenician woman, whose demon-possessed daughter was also healed by Jesus (Matthew 15:21-28).  Perhaps you can take a few minutes and read both accounts from your Bible.

 

As we look at these two accounts, the thing they had in common was that they were both non-Jews (Gentiles), so they weren’t raised being taught as Jews.  Neither of them was under the law of Moses, and therefore they did not know the law, so they did not disqualify themselves.  Church, we as born-again believers need to realize that we are not under condemnation by the law (the Ten Commandments), so we can receive and believe our Heavenly Father’s grace and mercy towards us!  By receiving and believing His Word for us, we can develop great faith!  Remember, the law was given to the Israelites to identify the sin in their lives.  As even before the law was given, they had such an egotistical view of themselves that they said “All that the Lord has spoken we will do.” (Exodus 19:8)!  And the Ten Commandments hadn’t even been given yet; they weren’t given until Exodus 20.   

 

The Bible itself plainly says that “the law is not of faith” (Galatians 3:12), and in another place it says, “For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect (Romans 4:14).  It is faith (right believing) in His grace that qualifies God’s people and stirs up great faith unconsciously to receive what they need from the Lord.  Right believing leads to Right Decision making, and Right Decision making leads to Right Actions, and Right Actions lead to Right Living.  Your individual will is involved.

 

I encourage you – the more you see Jesus – His beauty and His finished work of grace – the more faith arises in your heart.  You will have unconscious faith to believe what God’s Word says about you and to ask boldly of Him.  It’s truly all about Jesus, seeing His love, and allowing Him to love you and be gracious to you!

Hello Church,

This month, let’s focus on:     

  

Psalm 91:14 (NKJV) – “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.”

Therein lies the beautiful love story we call the gospel of Jesus Christ.  That God SO loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son to save and ransom us.  The Lord Jesus Christ Himself fulfilled all the requirements of the law.  Today, even when our love for Him wavers, even when we fail, He still delivers us from evil.

Today’s verse was written before the New Covenant (Hebrews 8:6-13) was established, as Jesus hadn’t gone to the cross yet.  Ignore teachings that make it seem like you have to qualify for God’s blessings.  They make it sound like God blesses you only if you are able to love the Lord with all your heart, all your mind, and with all your soul.  Unfortunately, such teaching can rob you of the faith to believe God for divine protection over yourself and your loved ones (if you allow it to).  And anything that is dependent on our efforts is on a shaky foundation, because no matter how “good” a Christian we think we are, we all “miss the mark” occasionally. 

Praise and thank God that part of the New Covenant says, “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more” (Hebrews 8:12).

A Scripture that beautifully encapsulates an essential point of the New Covenant of grace is 1 John 4:10: “In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”   The Bible declares that “the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases” (Lamentations 3:22 ESV).  I am so grateful that we are under the New Covenant of God’s amazing grace, where we can depend on His unconditional, unchanging, and irrevocable love for us! 

I encourage you to be anchored on this revelation.  The emphasis of the New Covenant is God’s love for you, not your love for God.

Your Brother in Christ,
