“Every word of God is flawless; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.”

Proverbs 30:5

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. 1 John 3:1 ESV

GOD THE FATHER.

For the purpose of this post, we would need to look into what the role of a father is. A father protects. A father cares. A father provides. A father guides. A father supports. A father does all to enable the success of his child because the…

THE UNITY OF THE CHURCH.

A popular saying goes “united we stand, divided we fall”. This saying could also be applied to the church. By “church” I don’t mean the building or a denomination. What I mean by “the church” is the body of believers worldwide…those who are the sons (and daughters)…

THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

If there is one thing this blog emphasizes, it is love. This is because the bedrock of Christianity is love…since God is love. The scripture says by their fruits we shall know them (Matt. 7:16). An apple tree is identified by the fruits it produces. Jesus Christ,…

ALL THAT YOU NEED FOR LIFE AND GODLINESS.

His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue. 1 Peter 1:3 KJV One amazing thing about the gospel is its completeness. The good news for every believer…

A NEW THING.

“Listen carefully, I am about to do a new thing. Now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even put a road in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19 AMP I love this verse so much because it holds…

THE WORDS OF OUR TESTIMONY.

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelations 12:11 For four weeks now, this blog has looked into “prayer” from different aspects. What comes next after prayer is…

PRAYER: INTERCESSION.

“The Lord restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.” Job 42:10 AMP The basis of intercession is love. It would be hard to intercede for anyone you do not love. Christianity…

PRAYER: Praying in the Spirit.

“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:4 Praying in the Spirit –commonly called speaking in tongues –is a spiritual experience inspired by the Holy Spirit. A lot of controversy surrounds…

PRAYER: EXPECTATIONS.

Last week, we discussed prayer. This week’s blog post follows in the same vein but from a different angle. When we pray, we must do so with expectation. Do not just mumble words to God without having any hope of it coming into fulfillment. Always be expectant.…

PRAYER.

“Pray without ceasing” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 This is a cliché topic for any Christian-faith-related content. Nonetheless, it is very important. This topic can never be overemphasized. As we learned last week, prayer is one of the methods which we use to exercise power in the spirit realm.…

EMPOWERED, YET POWERLESS.

This study can be split into two: “knowing what you carry” and then “knowing how to channel it.” But in this blog post, I would be combining both. A more focused post may come out later on. Christians carry weapons of warfare but many are ignorant of…

RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.

There is a place for rightly dividing the word of truth, as we study. 2 Timothy 2:15 made us understand that only when a man does this, can he truly be approved by God to represent Him. Before I go into what today’s post is about, I’ll give a…

STRIFE.

Strife simply means conflict, but a very strong one. It is more than disagreements and arguments. It embodies bitterness, unforgiveness, anger, and many other vices. We are in the last days Jesus predicted in Matthew 24 so, strife has now become the order of the day. Since the Christian nature and culture do not include strife,…

THE TRUTH ABOUT SIN.

From the days of Adam and Eve to this present day, sin has been one thing that we have all been exposed to. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, sin came into the world. And ever since…

THE APPOINTED TIME.

With God, there is an appointed time for everything. When mankind fell in the garden of Eden, God promised salvation but it didn’t manifest until the appointed time. And even now, every believer is waiting for the appointed time of the return of Jesus Christ. (Genesis 3:15;…

THE CROSS AND OUR SALVATION.

The very basis of Christianity is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Over 2000 years ago, God sent His Son to die for us. We were deep, deep in sin and the penalty for our sins was death. In other words, we were all going…

LIVING A LIFE OF IMPACT.

As believers, we are called to impact the world. Even from the last post, it is evident that God is not pleased with us living a “quiet” life…a life likened to the blowing of wind. We must first do away with mediocrity if we want to live…

GOD DOESN’T WANT YOU TO BE MEDIOCRE.

According to the Google English dictionary provided by Oxford languages, the word “mediocre” means of only average quality; not very good. Mediocrity is the state of being mediocre. When I first heard this word, I knew it was a state that God wouldn’t be pleased with. Then…

CALLED TO DO THE “IMPOSSIBLE”.

I like to think of every believer as a superhuman because we live a life that is beyond the ordinary. So many things about the faith differentiate us from what the world would consider as normal. That’s why it’s a call to do the things which are…

BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.

I find this particular post very timely, knowing all that is going on in the world today. With the news buzzing on updates on the Russia-Ukraine war and all manner of vices happening around us, the church of God needs a consolation and this is it. Today,…

LOVE: GONE COLD.

Before Jesus’ crucifixion, He had a long and deep conversation with His disciples about the end and the signs thereof. One of the major things He mentioned was that the love of many would grow cold. A whole lot was foretold to happen but I believe the…

LOVE.

A very cliché topic for a Christian blog but stay with me…you might learn a thing or two. The concept of love is one that is all too familiar within the Christian family. The entire foundation of Christianity is built on love so it shouldn’t surprise anyone…

THE COMPASSIONATE CHRISTIAN.

We’re in times where compassion is not a popular deal anymore. People are only ready to help if it benefits them. Many have traded kind and comforting words for judging and condemning words. However, no matter how popular being cold to one another gets, the family of…

THE PROFESSION OF FAITH.

“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9 NIV This is the version of “profession of faith” common in sermons. But today’s blog post would be looking at…

PRAYING EFFECTIVELY 2.

A key to praying effectively is praying God’s word back to Him. You can never go wrong with that. God’s words can never fall to the ground, Matthew 24:35 makes us understand this. The promises in God’s word are not there for fancy or only for some…

PRAYING EFFECTIVELY.

What does it mean to Pray Effectively? To pray effectively is to pray and see results. It is one thing to pray, it is another to see the effects of the prayer. Many Christians are unaware of it but there is something called effective praying. James 5:16…

REDEEMED: THE RUTH STORY.

A perfect typology of the story of redemption is Ruth’s story. It is more than the love story some people paint it as. It depicts the beauty of salvation and the redeeming power of Jesus Christ. To understand this post better, Naomi represents the Jews, Ruth represents…

REDEEMED: BOUGHT BY THE BLOOD.

THE SETTLE FOR LESS CHRISTIAN.

LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

In John 8:12 Jesus calls Himself the light of the world. By the reason of our belief, we have been born again (born of the Spirit) into the family of Christ. This means we have the very nature of Christ (John 1:12-13). So long as you believe…

LIKE LITTLE CHILDREN.

One of the metaphors the Bible uses in depicting how believers must be is like little children. God wants us to be childlike…not childish. To be childish means to be immature but when we use the word child-like, it brings into perspective the more positive aspects of…

SAVED TO SAVE.

Before any controversies start to arise, let me be clear that only Jesus saves. “There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven by which men must be saved” Acts 4:12. We can only share with others, this powerful and joyful…

THE BLAME GAME iii

There is a clear line between taking responsibility for your wrong and blaming yourself. Taking responsibility would have you acknowledging you have done something wrong and push you to look for a solution or way forward but blaming yourself is continuous, it makes you dwell on the wrong and the possible scenarios. E.g the “what ifs” and “what could have been”.

THE BLAME GAME II.

“BLAMING GOD”. Before you gasp and cover your mouth in shock thinking “how can someone blame God?” I’d like you to know that you’re not innocent of this either. In times past, we have all faulted God for one thing or the other. We have blamed Him…

THE BLAME GAME.

This is the first game ever played by mankind. It dates as far back as the beginning of time, in the garden of Eden. Adam was the first player, closely followed by Eve. (Genesis 3:1-13) In today’s world, the blame game is as good as normal and…

DEALING WITH DISAPPOINTMENTS.

As believers, how do we cope with this feeling? How do we deal with the feeling of being let down? Some people say a “coping mechanism” is to expect nothing; one can never be disappointed if he never had expectations. I however find this statement filled with loopholes…

DISCOVERING YOUR PURPOSE.

PURPOSE.

YOUR ASSOCIATION MATTERS…A LOT.

There’s a popular saying that goes “no man is an island” and it is often used to establish the fact that we all need people to survive. You cannot get through this life thing on your own…you need friends or at the least, associates. However, we, especially…

EXCUSE ME, I NEED YOUR PERMISSION.

How do you exercise your authority as a believer? Did you even know you have authority? The bible lets us understand that we have been given authority over the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19). It is something that we received from God through Christ Jesus. Certainly,…

RELATIONSHIP OVER RELIGION.

THE CHARACTER OF A BELIEVER: A STUDY ON THE PHARISEES IV

Self-righteousness is one thing that Paul the Apostle fought against tirelessly and yes, the Pharisees were guilty as charged. Wikipedia gives a lengthy definition of it but let’s see anyway.

THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE.

GOOD DOES NOT EQUAL GODLY.

Too often these days, people are getting comfortable with good in the place of godly. Take the marriage institution for example, many believers are marrying outside of the faith and hiding under the fact that “he’s a good man” or “she’s a good woman”. “He gives to…

SAVIOUR BUT NOT LORD.

Recently, I learnt that it is possible for one to believe Jesus as their saviour but refuse to accept Him as their Lord. What does it mean to accept Jesus as your Lord? It means to surrender, to let His will formulate your will. It means to…

MAKE YOURSELF AVAILABLE!

SELF-CONTROL.

ANGER.

It is not a sin to get angry. Jesus Himself, got upset in Matthew 21:12-13 when He saw the people buying and selling in the temple and extorting money from each other. His anger was permissible as it was because of the disrespect the people had towards God. However,…

PRIDE.

HYPOCRISY.
