KEY SCRIPTURE: Prov 4:18 KJV” But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.”

Who is the just. The just are those who live by trusting God. Heb 10:38 KJV Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. The just also means, those whose ways please the Lord, since they live by faith according to Heb 11:6. The just also have righteousness being imputed on their account. Romans 4:3 KJV” For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.”

From the above, we learn that the just walk in the ways or according to the word of God. They take time to learn from God’s word 2 Tim 2:15 KJV” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” He is not put to shame because, through study or diligence he has come to know the right ways of life, and therefore treads thereby. He has a lamp unto his feet and a light unto his path. He does not stumble, for He is like the man whom Jesus said walks in the day, and so has the light of the day. John 11:9 KJV” Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walks in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.”

Our key scripture says His way, is like the shining light, that keeps shining unto the perfect day.

The path of the just is the way of rest. He does not fret about what happens around Him. This man constantly celebrates the Lord for His victories which is his victory as well. The just has a continuous stream of victory.

The Bible is full of characters who tread on the path of the just. One of such men was King David. He wrote, the Lord is my shepherd, and so I shall not want.  He added, thou I walk through the valley of the shadows of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. King David lived His life in the presence of God and kept shinning till he left the earth scene.


I live and walk on the path of the just. My life is simply based and depended on the infallible word of God. He keeps me winning daily unto that perfect day, when we Shall meet in glory.



Prov 3:5 KJV” Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”

Heb 11:6 KJV But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.


KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 14:26 KJV If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

In our key scripture, the Lord laid Barr His qualification terms for one to be called a disciple. In actual fact, he says you will not be part of Him if you do not adhere to what He presented. He said to be His disciple, you must hate your father, mother, wife or husband, children, siblings, and your very life.  The Lord added that His disciple must take up His cross and follow Him. Your cross is not anything He has redeemed us from like our sins, sicknesses, or poverty, but anything that has to do with choosing His way as against choosing our way. It means He must coke first in all that we choose to do.

The Lord does not just make empty demands but whatever He tells us come from His love for us as well as His wisdom that surpasses all things. The Christian life is purely a spiritual life that could not he led by any man in his natural capacity as a man. Plucking your heart from every other thing to love the master gives Him the right to live His life through us. In Matt. 10:40 the Lord added that when a man has fulfilled the demand to love Him above all other things, He said in verse 40 that “He that receiveth you receiveth me and he that receiveth me receiveth the one who sent me”

What is the meaning of this statement?

It means the child of God who accepts to love the Lord above himself and every other thing has entered into a covenant relationship with Him.

Remember he loved us above Himself to die for us and we must also love Him above ourselves to complete that covenant pact of really becoming one with Him.

When we believe in Him, we are one with Him yet it becomes practical and experiential when we also love Him above ourselves. This cements our relationship with Him and we will be really ready to believe in Him under any condition. Until this is done, He can’t stand for you because you have not crossed the death line. Please note I don’t mean dying physically, but rather dying in your heart and mind to yourself, your family and the world. It is only by your death that you can really partake of Him and everything that belongs to Him.


Dear lord Jesus, I accept to love you above myself, my relations, my interests and also to carry my cross everyday of my life. Thank you, Lord, for bringing me unto a solid covenant pact with you.



John 12:24, 25KJV Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

Matt 10:37 KJV “He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”


KEY SCRIPTURE: Eph 2:10 KJV “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

We are living at a time when times are not normal yet the child of God must never lose sight of who He or she is. Our key scripture says we have been created from the very nature of our Lord Jesus. This is revealed in the teaching of the vine and the branches. The branch is made from whatever the vine is made from John 15:1-16. This scriptural revelation shows us that we should never accept any condition, or words about ourselves, that are contrary to who we are.

As workers in any establishment, you are the light, you are the truth, and you are the hope of the place. Do not allow any pressure whatsoever to allow you to conform to any contrary lifestyle. Some believers who go out of their family locations to new places to work begin to live very different from their calling as Christians. Some always leave the place having babies with other women. It is rather amazing that, at the funerals of certain men, different women come along with children, claiming they were fathered by that brother. This is very different from who you are. Living this way, would find yourself in hell fire. Our key scripture says you are the workmanship of God, you have been created in Christ Jesus for only good works.

The Lord knew He was on earth to do good works. He said I am the light of the world. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed of the devil. Acts 10:38.

The Lord showed us that to bear fruit or to do good works, we must abide in Him. Maintain your fellowship, through prayer, bible reading, and study, bible meditation, fellowshipping with other Christians, and doing all that you learn. Daily affirm that you are the light of the world. Affirm also that, no wrong act will proceed from your life. Tell yourself you will overcome every evil condition with good. When others are mischievous decide you would exhibit the life of the Spirit. Forgive those who walk in the flesh and do negative things. In moments of temptation to act out of anger, quickly tell yourself, I am of the Spirit and cannot manifest anything wrong. Your words will always rule you.


I am made to manifest only good things. Nothing makes me do wrong or walk in the flesh. I live in the Spirit and produce acts of the Spirit. I have a great life of love, peace, success, health, and prosperity.



Gal 5:16 KJV” This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”

Gal 5:22 KJV But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.


KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 14:12 KJV “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

In John 13:16, the Lord Jesus said categorically that, the servant is not greater than his master, neither is he that is sent greater than he that sent him. Although the Lord made this statement, He said in the next chapter that, he that believes in Him will do greater works than He did, because He was going to the Father. Now if the servant is not greater than his master, how would that same servant do greater works than his master? Every good master seeks that his followers do more or they should carry the ministry further than where they did. Secondly, the achievement of the servant can never make him greater than his master, for whatever he does is depending on the works of His master. In any case the servant can do a greater work if he takes a good advantage of how his master worked and do more.

The Lord indeed wants us to do more than He did, yet all these depend on how we would work more than He worked.  He even said He would work with us. He said anytime we ask or make a demand for a condition to change He would personally effect that change. John 14:13 KJV” And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” The Lord is fully ready to back us do exploits for Him. I believe, if we are to do the greater works He desires and talked about, then we must first decide to believe that, He really wants us to do that greater works, and also it is possible to achieve that much for Him.

Secondly, we must learn from His approach to everything. The Lord had uncompromising stands on pleasing the Father. He was never ready for a second to do anything that was contrary to the Father’s wish.

Thirdly He was so much in touch with the Father, and so knew whatever the Father wanted Him to do. This is a very high point if we really want to do greater works.

Jesus said, if anyone would be His disciple, He must hate himself, his parents, siblings, and his own children, (Lk 14:26) then would he or she be qualified to be His disciple and be in that position to do that much exploits. The above are the criteria that would propel one into doing the greater works. The Lord in His three and a half years of ministry, did so much, to the point that Apostle John wrote that, if all that He did were to be recorded in a book, no book could contain all that He did. John 21:25. This makes it a really tall order yet His word always carries the ability to do if only they are believed and acted upon.


Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your word about me. You have called me to do greater works than you did. I receive your word and believe that, so long as you said so, then it is very possible for me to do the greater works. Thank you for working with me to see it come to pass.



John 6:28 KJV Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”

Mark 16:20 KJV “And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.”


KEY SCRIPTURE: Rom 5:18 KJV” Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.”

In our previous study, we considered the fact that our Lord Jesus came to justify men. This in actual fact is a gift to as many who believe in Him. We also realised that to be justified is the same as being made righteous. It, therefore, implies that God our father gives righteousness to us as a gift. This is the ground on which God expects a high standard of uprightness from all His children.

Unfortunately, this point has not gotten home to many professing Christians. They are still struggling to be righteous. There is a righteousness that comes through man’s efforts, and it is called righteousness by the law. There is also the righteousness that comes as a result of faith in Jesus. Phil 3:9 KJV “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:” The righteousness which comes by our effort is what creates an egocentric righteousness, in which culprits compare themselves to others and judge them. This is a religious righteousness, and has nothing to do with Christ.

Jesus imparts His own righteousness to our spirit and we receive it by faith. This gives no grounds to boast or judge anyone.

Those who have encountered the righteousness of God have encountered the resurrected life of Christ that enables them to live above sin, and other satanic influences. The Bible says sin should no longer have dominion over the man who has Jesus Rom 6:14. The child of God must acknowledge without a doubt that He is the very righteousness of God.  This he must daily affirm and also reflect over. He should cast away from his mind and reflection on any form of sin consciousness. Sin has a strong hold over you when you accept that a particular wrong act holds sway over you. If you accept that bad temper is your uncontrollable master. Change that thinking and accept that you are the righteousness of God. If you can see yourself as the righteousness of God, then that old sinful life would soon lose its grip over you.

You may be able to do this by saying to yourself, over, and over, again, that you are God’s very righteousness. Say it till you realise you are walking in that life.


I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Sin, sicknesses and the by-products of sin cannot manipulate me in any way. I do not compare myself with anyone, for I am what I am by the grace of God.


Rom 3:22 KJV “Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:”

Rom 10:3 KJV “For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.”


KEY SCRIPTURE: Rom 4:25 KJV “Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification”.

The Lord Jesus is a symbol of absolute good, blessings, and perfection for mankind. Thinking about Him should send us into moments of thanksgiving and an unending appreciation and praise. Our key scripture shows Jesus was delivered for our offenses. He was arrested, beaten, spat upon, stripped naked and finally killed, all because of our sins. This was not the end, He died, buried and was raised back to life so we would be justified.

What does it mean to be justified. Justification means to be made righteous. Someone described it this way. Just- as-if- you-never – sinned – before. Our justification is tied to His resurrection. The Lord resurrected with a new sinless body. Remember, He died being made sin. 2Cor 5:21 KJV For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. The whole thing was an act of substitution or identification. Jesus identified with us in our sins and so was judged for us and killed. In His resurrection He still identified with us and raised with a new sinless, all-conquering nature. This new nature became ours, hallelujah. Romans 6:5 KJV For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

His resurrection was our resurrection. It only becomes effectual when a man believes in Him. Romans 5:1 KJV” Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:” We are justified when we believe on Jesus. We then assume that new resurrected nature and life, where we have no past of sin. Remember, the new man we acquired is the same as what Jesus resurrected with. This is why we become the righteousness of God in Christ 2 Corinth 5:21. The Lord Jesus came with a mind to make us righteous. This is the beautiful way the bible put it in .2Corinth 5:17 KJV” Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

He said, all these new things are of God. 2Corinth 5:18 We are the righteousness of God. TO BE CONTINUED.


Thank you, Lord Jesus, for giving your life for me. My faith in you has brought me justification. I have a perfect righteous nature, with no sin from my past. Whatever I once did is no more. I also have the ability to live a holy upright life. I am free and master over devils and diseases and lack of all forms, in Jesus’ name. Thank you, Lord Jesus. AMEN



Rom 6:14 KJV “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.”

Rom 3:22 KJV Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:


KEY SCRIPTURE; Rom 8:29 KJV “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.”

Religion is unfortunately the greatest confusion of human practice. Religion involves spiritually dead men and woman, who are struggling to be upright and also to catch the eye of God’s approval. Religion breeds self righteous men and women, who see people of the other side, evil, unfit and must be destroyed. Religion has created enemies among men.

Our Lord Jesus did not come to create another religious organization. He came to impart His life into as many who would accept Him, so they would be like Him. John 1:12 KJV” But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” Please note the bible did not talk about followers, but they who accepted Him, became sons of God, like Himself. Our key scripture also states that, those, He did foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His first son. Jesus became the first born among many brethren. We are one with Him.

We are not spiritually dead, but have received eternal life just as He has. We are partakers of His grace and the gift of righteousness, and so we are free from any kind of self righteousness. We do not judge and condemn any body, yet in love we show all those who have not accepted the Lord, the great love He has demonstrated to save them. We do not fight those who hold divergent views. We do not kill anybody in order to be honoured before our father. He, Jesus said, greater love has no man than, this that a man should lay his life for his friends. In the Jesus family we love all men.

Dear one, are you practicing Christian religion? In Christian religion people of different opinions are seen as enemies. Christian religion creates self righteous men and women, who condemn and judge others. These people struggle to be righteous, because they are sinners who are seeking to be righteous. This is most unfortunate. Christians are not sinners. They are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, 2nd Corinth 5:21. God has given birth to us, and so we are one with Jesus.

Dearly beloved stop practicing religion and receive life, the very life of God, so you would become one with Jesus.


Thank you, heavenly Father, for giving Jesus to die for me. I surrender my life to Him. I accept to be part of the Jesus Family.



Matt 5:44 KJV” But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”

Heb 2:11 KJV” For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,”


KEY SCRIPTURE: Rom 8:30 KJV “Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”

Glory is beauty, splendour, exaltation, honour, to be above and many more. The intention of our Lord Jesus is to bring men into glory or glorification. When man was created in the beginning, God placed him over all His creation. This was a glorified state. Man was glorified from the beginning, yet sin dethroned him, and the serpent assumed that exalted state. The serpent became the God of the world. 2 Corinth 4:4. The Lord came with a mind to lift men from the dust of sin, and place him, not just over the earth, but where He sits and remains glorified forever.

The process of salvation, was not the end of God’s plan for mankind. It was a means to the end. We see this in our key scripture. It said, the Lord predestinate those He knew, and then, called them to respond to His saving power. As they responded and believed in Jesus, He justified them, or made them righteous. Those that have been made righteous He has also glorified. This is a place of enthronement. Please is demonstrated in our seating with the master at the right hand of the Father. Eph 1:21, in comparison to Eph 2:6 means we are seated far above all Principalities, powers, dominion and every other throne. There is another glory which would be revealed at the close of History, yet, we are presently glorified. In John 17;24, the Lord prayed that, those of us who are born again will be at where he is presently.  We are glorified with Him.

In Isaiah 42:8, the Lord said He would not share or give His glory to another. This has made some to say God says He would not give His glory to anyone, including men like us. The context of the scripture refers to another god. Listen to what the Lord said in the following verse. John 17:22 KJV” And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: From what we just read, would the Lord give His glory to men who are saved? The answer is definitely yes.

We said from the beginning that, the glory is beauty, splendour, honour, exaltation and also weighty. All these adjectives reveal people of significance and impact. Our lives must be very impactful. God our father desires that His glory fill the whole earth, through His children. Jesus said unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it abides alone, but if it dies it would multiply. THE BRIDGE BETWEEN OUR PRESENT GLORIFICATION, AND MANIFESTATION IS TO DIE AS A SEED.


My Lord Jesus, came to lift me from the dust of sin to His glorious position at the Father’s right hand. I am honoured, blessed and endued with glory. I offer my life as a seed to truly show forth this glory, in order to fulfill the Father’s desire of filling the earth, with His glory.



John 12:24 KJV “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.”


KEY SCRIPTURE: Matt 11:29 KJV “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

The Lord revealed in our key scripture that, he’s been able to successfully live under various burdens because of His humility.

The Lord exhibited so much strength in the face of the weight of challenges that He bore. He bore the sins of the whole world. He bore the sicknesses and diseases of all men. In His days He endured such contradiction of sinners, yet He never complained Heb 12:3.

He said He did all these because He was meek and lowly in heart. He added that, that was the means of having rest for His soul. From our previous study we learnt that being humble is having a ready mind to do what the Lord says. This is what makes for success and to overcome in all you do.

What makes a humble man so strong to live under all kinds of conditions yet could say as Jesus, my yoke is easy and my burden is light? The humble man basically empties himself of all self, to fill himself with the Spirit of God. The absence of self makes him like the hollow part of a ship. The hollow portion enables the ship to operate with the law of FLOATATION, or the principle of buoyancy. The hollow part of the ship has caused the water to exert an upthrust or an upward force. It is the force from the water that makes the ship carry so much weight far heavier than itself. In effect it is the water that bears the weight, not the ship. The Lord was right, in saying His yoke was easy and His burden was light. Anyone who accepts to be lowly like Jesus receives rest for His soul. Your yoke will be easy and your burden will be light.

Apostle Paul shows in Philippians 2:1-4 that it is having that humble mind of Christ that enables the people of God to live in one accord. It drives away pride and any form of strive so the children, of God can achieve so much for God.

In conclusion, may we acknowledge that, the Spirit of God in us is meek and lowly like our master Jesus. One of the manifestations of the fruit of love is meekness. It is therefore intrinsic in our nature. We have to know and believe we are by nature humble and so apply ourselves to it. We are able to walk in our nature of the fruit of the Spirit by meditating on the fact that, that is who we are. As you acknowledge that fact, you would find yourself naturally living out that life of meekness and lowliness of mind. Stay blessed.


Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your great example and the gift of the Holy Spirit who has imparted to my spirit His love, that also manifests as meekness or humility. I am meek and lowly revealing the very nature of Jesus in all my relationships. Nothing is too difficult to face and overcome for it is His life that bears and carries everything. I indeed have rest for my soul. Hallelujah.



Prov 22:4 KJV” By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.”

1Pet 5:5 KJV Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.


KEY SCRIPTURE: Phil 2:5 KJV “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

The Lord Jesus had a very humble mind according to the scriptures. He is God, yet He put down His glory as God. John 17:5 tells us how He asked the Father to honour Him with the glory He had with Him from the beginning. What is humility? Humility is not a calm disposition of an individual. There are certain people who are introverts, who hardly raise their voice to express themselves. This does not make them humble. humility is defined as a ready mind to do what God says. God is the supreme power and authority. A person truly submitted to God has a free spirit and can do and achieve any positive results in this life. A man who is submitted to other things, but does not truly fear God in his heart has not found reality, and is a danger to himself and others.

King Saul was one who had great fear and submission to every other thing, yet had no fear for God. In first Samuel 15, the Lord asked King Saul to go wipe out the Amalekites, with all that they had. Saul overpowered them, but left their King, and the fat rams. When prophet Samuel enquired about what he’s done concerning God’s command, He said the following.1Sam 15:15 KJV “And Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.”

Saul never admitted to his error before God. He rather blamed others. Saul was a very proud king, who gave no fear for God, but feared men, his ego. King Saul lost his throne because he refused to be humble to God.

Dear one, it does not matter how men see and regard you. They may say, you are very humble, yet that does not mean anything. It is the place God holds in your heart that determines whether you are truly humble or not. Secondly   when a man is submissive to God, he would surely honour men, and show respect for all. He does not project his interest, but God’s. In this light he serves God’s intentions in the life of others. He seeks to please God in relating to others

This is humility.

Humility increases spiritual capacity, because God increases more grace to the humble James 4:6

Humility is wisdom because the humble follows God’s counsel.

Humility brings favour because God brings the humble into favour with God and men. Luke 2:52.


Thank you, heavenly father for your Spirit that teaches me all things. I remain submissive and exalt you above all things. My fear of the Lord makes me fear nothing.



James 4:6 KJV “But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”

Mat 11:29 KJV “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
