Teach Them; Do you have children?

Do you have children?

Series: Weekly Devotional
Tags: Disciples, Life Change
"Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20

Do you have children? If so, you might know that the Bible instructs us to "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6). Taking a new Christian on a path of discipleship can be compared to teaching or training a child. Jesus said, "Let the children come to Me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn't receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it" (Mark 10:14-15).

Faith Like a Child
Jesus taught, "unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven" (Matthew 18:3). He said, "anyone who welcomes a little child like this on My behalf is welcoming Me" (Matthew 18:5); your service to a new believer is an act of service to the Lord! But we must be careful to teach only what is in God’s Word. Jesus warned that it would be better to die than to "cause one of these little ones who trusts in Me to fall into sin" (Matthew 18:6).

Gift from the Lord
God loves and highly values every person. His Word tells us that "children are a gift from the Lord" (Psalm 127:3). Your disciple, believing in God with faith like a child's, is also a valuable person to the Lord. Like a child, they can turn to you to gain knowledge of the Lord. If you teach your disciple the ways of the Lord while he or she is "young" in faith, they may be more likely to follow the Lord all their life. Be encouraged: "Jesus said to the people who believed in Him, 'You are truly My disciples if you remain faithful to My teachings'" (John 8:31).

Prayer, Care, and Share Jesus
"Teach them to obey everything I have commanded you!”

Scripture: Matthew 28:19-20

One of the most exciting ways we hope your faith is strengthened when learning from the Prayer, Care and Share Jesus guide (PCS) is by becoming more confident when sharing Jesus with others.

When you do lead someone to Christ, you might even feel led to share what you’ve learned in the PCS guide. It can be a great discipleship tool!

In Matthew 28: 19-20, Jesus commands us to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey (not just know) all of Jesus' commandments.

When you walk someone through accepting Jesus in their life, it’s a great idea to start the discipleship process right away – "teaching the new believer to obey everything Jesus commanded." You can also get them connected to a church or community of faith. You might not be able or feel led to be the one to disciple the new believer. But, you can help them find a way to get discipled by connecting with someone or a Christian community or church. When I have led people to Christ whom I won’t see again, such as taxi drivers or flight attendants, I have prayed and asked the Holy Spirit to orchestrate their follow-up.

You can teach them about things that Jesus teaches in the Bible like baptism, reading the Bible, prayer, involvement in a community of believers (such as a church or house church); taking communion (remembering Christ in the way he commanded us); and sanctification ("go and sin no more." John 8:11). These are not all of Jesus' teachings, but they are a good start for your new believer.

This week, start praying about your role in someone’s life as a discipleship mentor. Ask for guidance, wisdom and compassion.

Pray this week:

That your children and disciples will remain faithful to the Lord all their life.

An Easter Gift for You

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the key to the Christian faith

Written by Joy on 05/04/2015
Series: Weekly Devotional
Tags: Crucifixion, Easter, Jesus, Life, Resurrection
“Jesus told her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me, even if he dies, will live, ” John 11:25

During Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This event is the key to understanding the Christian faith. Without Easter morning, what Jesus taught and modeled would only bring us condemnation. “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.” I Corinthians 15:17 Let’s learn more about the special Easter gift God has for you.

Love
At the time of Jesus’ coming, the Bible already had many detailed predictions about Jesus’ death on the cross. His own words in Matthew 12:40, Mark 8:31 and John 2:19-21 show He knowingly and willingly went to the cross. “No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily…” (John 10:18). His death was not by accident. It was not for His own glory. He died to rescue us from our sins. “God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” (Romans 5:8)

Life
Easter is not just about the death of Jesus. His resurrection was a victory! Because He conquered death, we can be sure of the resurrection He promises for those who believe in Him. “‘Death is swallowed up in victory’…But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:54,57). Jesus’ triumph over death keeps us from spending eternity separated from God.

Hope
Many religious leaders tell of various ways to reach heaven. Yet, no others have shown proof that theirs is the true way. “Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said…After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive…” (1 Corinthians 15:3-6).

Jesus predicted His own death and resurrection, and then he accomplished it. He also promised to prepare a place in heaven for all who believe in Him. (John 14:1-6) He Himself is the bridge to eternal life. “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23) Will you accept this Easter Gift for yourself? Click here to accept God’s gift of eternal life.

Pray this week:

Thank you God for the gift of love you gave me through Jesus. I accept Jesus’ death as payment for my sins and I trust in the life and hope that Jesus offers.

Jesus is different than every other religious leader in history. How did Jesus predict his own death and resurrection? Connect with a caring Christian to find out.

Our Unclaimed Riches God wants to bless you with things better than money

Prepare
Have you claimed the riches God has promised you today? Take time to think about the blessings God has placed in your life. You might be missing a few.

Read
Proverbs 3:1-18

Explore
It is said that God doesn’t have favorites, but He does have intimates. In fact, as it teaches in Psalms, “the Lord confides in those who fear Him” (Psalm 25:14).

For those who put their trust in Him, the Lord reveals wonderful things. And as this passage teaches, He makes available incredible riches.

Many people appear to teach that God cares about our spiritual life, but that He is detached from our physical life. That is just not so.

As this proverb plainly states, “My son (or daughter), do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. (vs 1-2).

God is not just talking “spiritual” prosperity in this chapter, although that is clearly evident (vs 4, 6, and 13). He is also talking physical riches. Just look – if you keep His commands and trust in the Lord, He will give you energy (v 7-8), abundance (v 9-10), discipline, and instruction (v 11-12).

God wants to bless you. He wants to pour out His promises on you (Matthew 7:11). And all it takes is a willing heart (v 1), love (v 3), and trust in Him (v 4).

Respond
Loving Lord, thank you for the staggering blessings you have made available to me. Teach me to trust you and to learn to be an intimate follower of you.

Besides the gift of your salvation, what is the greatest blessing God has given you? Do you believe you have unclaimed riches? The definition of unclaimed is: untaken, not demanded or requested as being something one has a right to

One Man’s Death Every Man’s Guarantee

Hope for a "new world" must rest in God, not man

Written by Luis Palau
Tags: Death, Easter, Hope, Life, Power, Resurrection
We all keep hoping for peace. World War I was "the war to end all wars." Then we found ourselves in the midst of World War II-again sending out sons, husbands, and fathers who may not return.

The wars kept coming. Korea. Vietnam. Iraq. Each one pouring out death and destruction to an extent the world hadn’t witnessed previously. If only military victory carried a lifetime guarantee of no more death, no more failure, no more fear. Or better yet, an eternal guarantee.

But only one man’s death carries that guarantee.

No human effort to build a better world can guarantee lasting peace in the Persian Gulf, or Somalia, or anywhere else for that matter. The freedom that costs the blood of our precious young men and women isn’t permanent. It lasts only until another aggressive power comes along, unjustly claiming supremacy over others. Then the bloodshed starts all over again.

Hope for a "new world" must rest in God, not man. Death is man’s legacy; life is God’s. The Lord Jesus Christ said, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die" (John 11:25-26).

Good Friday, when we remember the cruel death of Jesus Christ on the cross, is a day that man made because of sin. But Resurrection Sunday is God’s Day. He made it. Only the power of God could have raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Man’s deepest yearnings for life, power, and hope find fulfillment in the meaning of Easter.

Life
Resurrection speaks of life. Jesus Christ is alive today! Here in the northern hemisphere, Resurrection Sunday comes in the spring. After a long, cold winter, nature comes alive. In the spring, one is prompted to think of resurrection. It’s a new beginning.

Death is our enemy. But life is ours in Jesus Christ. Death brings fear. The Resurrection gives peace. Thoughts about death often lead to depression. The reality of the Resurrection leads to hope. Death speaks of separation, but the Resurrection speaks of a life that is indestructible, in union forever with the risen Jesus Christ.

The Bible says, "When you were dead in your sins…God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins" (Colossians 2:13). We are alive to God because the risen life of Christ is our life. All of us who have Jesus Christ in our hearts know that He’s alive. That’s why we love to sing, "You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart." The Lord affirmed, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full" (John 10:10). That speaks of His life in us!

When Jesus came out of the grave, having finished the work on the cross, having shed His blood, having taken the punishment for our sins on His own body, He was able to give us life, because He was alive, risen from the dead.

Do you have this life? Have you experienced what it is to come alive in Jesus Christ? Have you experienced what the Bible calls a "new birth"?

To be born again means that Jesus Christ actually comes into your life. Instead of being dead to God, dead to the things of God, not understanding what God is like, you come alive. You become a new person who can understand the things of God.

The Resurrection speaks of life; not only the life of Christ, alive from the tomb, but also an abundant inner life for us, here and now, daily.

Jesus Christ also opened a way into heaven. We no longer have to fear death, because we are united with Christ. A Christian has been resurrected with Jesus Christ. Christ’s victory is our victory both now and in the future. Through His death and resurrection, Jesus Christ destroyed him "who holds the power of death-that is, the devil" (Hebrews 2:14).

Power
Resurrection also speaks of power. Before the Lord was raised from the dead, the apostles were quite a miserable lot. What was wrong? What was it that they lacked? They lacked power!

Until the Lord Jesus was resurrected, was raised up into heaven and the Holy Spirit came down on the Day of Pentecost, the apostles were still afraid and in hiding.

But on the Day of Pentecost, Peter, who had earlier been afraid of the accusations of a servant girl, stood up in front of several thousand people and said, very boldly, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 2:38). What brought on this boldness?

Peter now was filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit! He had the risen life of Jesus Christ in him. The power that brought Christ out of the grave is for us now. God’s power is not something that we work up ourselves. It comes only from the indwelling Holy Spirit.

If you lack power in your life, power to overcome temptation, power to witness for Jesus Christ, then you need to allow God’s Spirit to fill you. You need to acknowledge His life in you and let Him live through you.

The life of Christ dwells in every one who by faith receives Him. Your life can be filled with the power of the living Lord Jesus Christ. "For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, and love and of self-discipline" (2 Timothy 1:7).

Hope
Hope? Yes, resurrection also speaks of a secure hope. My father’s body is buried in a little cemetery in Argentina. But my father has been with Jesus Christ all these 48 years since his physical death. One day his body is going to be resurrected, just as the body of Jesus was resurrected.

For those who know the Lord Jesus, that fact is very real. The Lord is coming back! The Bible says that one of these days, we shall be changed "in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed" (1 Corinthians 15:52). What a marvelous reality!

When my father died, we sang a hymn at his funeral:

Face to face, O blissful moment.

Face to face, to see and know.

Face to face with my Redeemer,

Jesus Christ who loved me so.

Face to face I shall behold Him,

Far beyond the starry sky.

Face to face in all His glory,

I shall see Him by and by.

This is the hope that the Resurrection gives you. We know we shall see the Lord Jesus face to face in all His glory. Do you have that hope? Do you have that assurance? Do you know for sure that you’ll see Him?

If the resurrected Christ does not live in your heart and you die today, what hope would you have? There is no "reincarnation," no "second chance." But if Christ lives in you, then there is the secure hope of eternal life with the Lord Jesus, forever. "I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish," He has said (John 10:28).

A minister’s son, 28 years old, married with two children, had cancer. Each of the several specialists who examined him said the cancer would take his life. I was the guest speaker at the minister’s church on the Sunday that his son died, early that morning. This pastor, who had suffered so much for two years seeing his son slowly dying, was at perfect peace. He described the last few hours he spent with him. His son had said, "Dad, tonight I’m going to be with Jesus."

"Aren’t you lucky to get there before me, David," his father said. "To think that tonight you will actually see Moses in person, and Peter, Paul, and John the Baptist!"

Then his father said, "But son, best of all, you’re going to see the Lord Jesus. And when you see Him, David, will you tell him that your father loves Him very much?"

The reason this man had such tremendous peace when I spoke with him a few hours after his son’s death was because his son was with the Lord Jesus. That’s what knowing Jesus Christ will do for you.

If the Lord Jesus returned today, would He welcome you into His presence? Have you opened your life to Jesus Christ?

You can receive the Lord Jesus by a simple prayer of faith. Believe in Him, invite Him into your heart, and become a child of God. Make sure that you will be part of that resurrection day when the Lord Jesus comes back for His own.

Make this prayer your own, quietly now, as you finish this article:

Dear Lord Jesus, thank You that because of Easter, You’ve made it possible for me to have a new beginning. Thank You for Your death on the cross, paying the penalty for my sins. Thank You for Your resurrection three days later. You’re alive and now You offer me new life, power and hope here and now and for all eternity. Please forgive my sins and make me part of Your family. I gladly receive You and put my trust in You. Amen.

10 KEYS – PROTECTING YOUR MIND FROM SATAN .

LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF PROVERB 3:5 (Amp)

" Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding."

10 KEYS – PROTECTING YOUR MIND FROM SATAN .

1.Faith – you cannot survive the enemies attacks on your mind outside the arena of faith as a believer . why? your faith is a shield against the fiery darts of the wicked . Eph 6:16(Amp)" Lift up over all the [covering] shield of  saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].

2.Speaking in tongues – Edifies your spirit and soul (mind) with God's will and with time, your mind becomes aligned with the will of God . 1 Cor 14:4(Amp)" One who speaks in a tongue edifies himself; but one who prophesies edifies the church [promotes growth in spiritual wisdom, devotion, holiness, and joy]."

3.Effective prayer – Is different from just praying . It means praying with such intensity from your heart , such prayers affects your mind because you desire it strongly. James 5:16b(Amp)" The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power]."

4.The word of God – Is God Himself and what can possibly shield your mind from the wicked arrows of an enemy you cannot see .2 Cor 10:4(Amp)" The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses." strongholds in the mind .

5.Read good  christian books –  That will edify and develop your mindset .Your mind responds to whatever it perceives through you as true . key – keep junk stuffs out of your mind and look for good magazines , books that will edify your mind to read .

Satan takes advantage of you at such moments to fire you with all kinds of negative thoughts . David knew this trick of the enemy so what did he do ? He encouraged Himself in the Lord .1 Sam 30 :6(Amp)" Further, David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him, for all of them were embittered, each man for his sons and daughters. But David felt strengthened and encouraged in the Lord his God."

8. The truth  –  the word of God in your spirit is your shield and buckler .it will cut away any negative thought from your mind.Let your mind dwell on the truth always .(2 John 1:2) Heb 4:12(Amp)" For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged [a]sword, penetrating as far as the division of the [b]soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart."

9.Worship – your mind loves music . Is inspired by songs . Have you ever wondered , why Elisha called for the minstrel before he gave them the answer to the problem ? When your spirit is lifted , you are then able to respond positively to the challenge at hand .2 Kings 3:15,16" But now bring me a minstrel.

Personal quote :

" Your mind will always respond to whatever it perceives as true " 

Prayer : In the name of Jesus , I shield my mind from every fiery darts of the wicked  in Jesus name.Amen.

God bless you .Have a great month!

What is God’s Blessing?

What does Jesus say about being blessed?

Written by Joy on 29/08/2015
Series: Weekly Devotional
Tags: Blessings, Favor, Jesus, Money, Wealth
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God…..” Matthew 5:3-12

To be blessed by God means having God’s favor and goodness. We often think of blessings as riches, high position, health, and happiness. However, Jesus’ famous words about blessings show us that God has a different definition of being blessed.

Who is Blessed?
Jesus’ list of blessed people in Matthew 5 include the needy, sad, meek, and persecuted. This might offend us since we value strength, confidence and independence. But Jesus says we must realize our need for God in order for us to receive His blessing. “These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.” (Isaiah 66:2b). Those who show mercy and bring peace, who desire righteousness and a pure heart, show they are true followers of God’s Word.

What are the Blessings?
Jesus never mentions wealth or position, health or happiness as blessings. Instead, he says the greatest blessing is to have a place in the kingdom of heaven and to be called a child of God. To be shown mercy by a Holy God, to know His grace and love in our lives, to know God in an intimate relationship — These are true blessings. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1a).

Jesus paints a picture of a person that is more interested in spiritual rewards than things of this world. “Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven…” (Matthew 6:20). Jesus had no personal wealth, but he was still blessed. How? “It is more blessed to give than receive.” (Acts 20:35) Jesus gave his life for us. The blessing of giving is not material prosperity but an inner joy and peace that God gives us when we imitate His loving sacrifice for others.

How are We Blessed?
When Jesus tells us to hunger and thirst for righteousness, it reminds us of his words in John 6:35 – “I am the Bread of Life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” Jesus is our ultimate blessing or gift from God. He is the only one who can cleanse us of sin and give us a pure heart so we can see God. (John 6:40) Through Him we become co-heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven, which is our greatest blessing.

Pray this week:

That God will reveal the amazing blessings He has given you through your faith in Christ.

Move From Believing To Faith

Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed (1 Peter 2:24)
Some Christians find themselves having a
conflict between what the Word says and
their actual experience. For example, they’ve read and
believed our opening verse, yet they’ve battled one
ailment after the other and now they’re asking, “What
am I supposed to do that I’m not doing?”
A dear lady asked me a similar question, drawing
attention to 2 Corinthians 8:9 that says Jesus was made
poor that we might be made rich. Then she asked,
“If this is true, how come so many Christians are still
poor?” She wanted to know what could be done to
make that scripture real in their lives.
Here’s what you need to know: When you were
born again, you were brought into a life of absolute
prosperity, absolute health, strength and victory; it’s
been done already. Whether or not you’re enjoying
it is your responsibility. The Bible says, “…work out
your own salvation…” (Philippians 2:12); meaning that
you must live the Word of salvation. Act according
to the Word. In Christianity, we do the Word; we’re
Word practitioners. You must personalise the Word
for yourself and act accordingly.  You’re the one to make the Word real in your life.
You’re the one to subdue the circumstances around you. You’re the one to subdue the forces that come against you and the symptoms that try to attack you.
You’re the one to use the Word to effect changes. Things won’t change by themselves; they won’t
change because you believe. Believing isn’t enough; to effect the change you need in any area of your
life, you must go from believing to faith! You must fight the good fight of faith. The fight of faith is when you consciously live according to the Word of God,
irrespective of the circumstances around you and what your senses tell you. It’s when you insist on the Word and hold on to it as the only reality.
Confession I experience the reality of the Word of God as I meditate on, and live in, the Word! I’m making progress, and circumstances are subdued to conform to the reality of God’s Word for my good. The Word of God has the pre-eminence in my life, and it continually produces in me what it talks about, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Believe

Thought For Today: Being Conscious of your Spiritual Heritage The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together (Romans 8.16-17). If you’re born again, you have an inheritance and it was bequeathed to you by the Monarch of the universe— the one who said “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts” (Haggai 2:8). All the wealth in this world actually belong to Him: the money, precious stones, minerals, oil and everything that men believe they own all belong to the Lord and you’re His heir. You’re the heir of the sovereign-mega-rich God. He is the fountain of riches. His wealth is limitless, inestimable and unquantifiable. That makes you richer than those on the Forbes’ list! Hallelujah! Your ‘Papa’s’ wealth isn’t subject to the market forces of this world; it isn’t subject to the oil prices or the stability of the world’s currencies. That’s why it’s an insult to God for His kids to be broke or live beggarly lives. What you must learn to do is tap into this limitless wealth by faith through your confessions. Begin to voice out your faith; declare everyday that you’re rich and blessed beyond measure. Meditate on this reality and let the consciousness of your inheritance in God fill your spirit. Get rid of the poverty-talk. Your heavenly Father has bequeathed His enormous wealth to you, and unlike the wills made by men on behalf of their beneficiaries, He isn’t dead—He’s alive and will see to it that nothing deprives you of your inheritance.

Usain Bolt is one of the Christian competitors taking a stand for Jesus Christ in the most inspiring way.

Mainstream media tries to force the secular agenda on us during the Olympics, but Usain Bolt is one of the Christian competitors taking a stand for Jesus Christ in the most inspiring way.

Bolt won the hearts of every American at the 2012 Summer Olympics when he paused in mid-interview to honor the U.S. national anthem as it was being played. Bolt politely interrupted the reporter interviewing him and stood at attention, reminding the world what a class act looks like.

The Olympic legend is an inspiration to millions around the world, but it’s what mainstream media is hiding about Usain Bolt that’s touching hearts even more.
Usain Bolt is known for his extraordinary speed and joyous facial expressions while competing, and you don’t have to look too hard to discover where that joy comes from: Bolt is outspoken about his faith in Jesus Christ.

When I learned how mainstream media was hiding Usain Bolt’s devout Christian faith, I knew the world deserved to know the TRUTH about the fastest man alive.

Usain Bolt’s faith in Jesus Christ has always played a prominent role in his life and success. His parents, Wellesley and Jennifer Bolt, instilled him with a devout Christian faith. Bolt prays before every race, and immediately praises God when he’s finished. His strong Christian upbringing equipped him with the desire, discipline and dedication to become the Olympic legend he is today.

Bolt’s parents emphasized the ‘fruit’ of the Holy Spirit to their son, molding him into an honorable man of God. When I learned the details of Usain Bolt’s testimony, I realized God was using him in extraordinary ways.

Usain Bolt could easily let the fame get to his head at a time like this, but the fastest man alive knows where his true fortune can be found — in heaven.

Despite his legendary success, Bolt stays true to his humble roots. He was born on August 21, 1986 in Sherwood Content, a small town in Trelawny, Jamaica. The Bolt family’s faith was put to the test when doctors realized he was born with scoliosis – a condition of the spine where it is curved from side to side. Although the condition has led to a series of injuries in his career, Bolt continues to turn tragedy into triumph.

Bolt had the odds stacked against him, but time and time again, his strength in Jesus Christ allowed him to persevere through every life challenge.

“I’ve worked hard over the years, I’ve been injured and I’ve worked hard through it, and I’ve made it. But if I keep my core and back strong, the scoliosis doesn’t really bother me,” Bolt revealed.

Bolt’s parents, Wellesley and Jennifer, ran the local grocery store and raised their three children in a humble country lifestyle. Where Usain Bolt is from, the people value respect, good manners and honesty. Thankfully, Bolt’s humble upbringing and foundation in Christ keeps him grounded amidst all the Olympic chaos.

“Manners is the key thing. Say, for instance, when you’re growing up, you’re walking down the street, you’ve got to tell everybody ‘Good Morning.’ Everybody. You can’t pass one person,” Bolt explained.

As a child, Bolt enjoyed playing cricket and football in the street with his brother. But everything changed when Bolt realized God blessed him with the gift of running. By the age of 12, Bolt was wowing fans of sprinting with his lightning speed.

Little did Bolt’s parents know then that they were raising a true champion who would use his Olympic platform to spread the message of Jesus Christ…

Although the Olympian has been outspoken about his faith, mainstream media refuses to cover that aspect of Bolt’s story. They recorded his most recent race second-by-second and described Bolt’s personal life — yet they never mentioned his faith, even though Bolt attributes his success to his faith in Jesus Christ.

Bolt intentionally waits for the camera to be on him so his worship can be a public witness for Christ. However, representatives for Bolt say his tradition of giving God the glory before and after each race is consistently ignored by mainstream media. In fact, when he got on his knees to thank God after his most recent victory, the BBC presenter called his act of worship “a moment to himself” instead.

Shortly after, God reminded mainstream media who’s REALLY in charge — he rewarded Bolt for his steadfast faith in the most heartwarming way.

Bolt’s public relations team and members of his family responded saying, “Usain Bolt is a Bible-believing, God-honoring, Jesus-worshipping Christian. But not a whisper from the BBC; not a word of explanation of the real significance of these ‘moments to himself.'”

Bolt made history again at the 2016 Rio Olympics when he won gold in the 100-meter race, making him the first athlete to win three successive titles in the event. He’s smashed world records and won 7 gold medals as a reigning champion at the 2008, 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympic Games. Despite mainstream media’s constant dismissal of his Christian faith, Bolt defied all odds and reached heights most athletes will never see — all by the grace of God.

Usain Bolt’s testimony illustrates the reward that can only be found when we submit ourselves to Jesus Christ. Instead of being bound by bitterness, Bolt trusted in God’s plan. He didn’t blame the ‘Dealer’ or the other players for the cards he was dealt with — Bolt just made the most of the cards the Dealer handed him, and won.

Please keep Usain Bolt in your prayers as he continues leading others to Jesus Christ through his gift of running. His final race at the 2016 Rio Olympics will share the message of Jesus Christ in the most healing and powerful way – at a time when the world needs it now more than ever.

“I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith. From now on, the crown of righteousness awaits me, which the Lord, the just Judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me, but to all who have longed for His appearance.” – 2 Timothy 4:7-8
