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

Proverbs 30:5

THE NEW CREATURE REALITY.

Our new creature reality gives us the rights to boast of eternal life through Christ Jesus. Before being in Christ we could never had dreamed of such privilege but now we do not just dream it, we also live it!

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. 

Now you are asking yourself “what is my purpose?“. Well, that is not a question I would be answering today, or ever, as I cannot know your purpose except you tell me. What I would be doing today is guiding you to discover what your purpose is.   The…

PURPOSE. 

I sat in church earlier this week meditating on a phrase the Pastor had just said; “fulfilling purpose”. Purpose, it’s a word we hear often in any setting where the word of God is being shared. But what does it really mean? Does a person have just one…

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,…

 WAIT ON THE LORD.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” ~ Isaiah 40:31 KJV What does it mean to wait on the Lord? Often…

RELATIONSHIP OVER RELIGION.

The very basis of Christianity is relationship. Jesus did not come to establish a new religion when He came to earth rather, He came to reveal/ remind us of God’s original plan. In fact, the first place the word “Christian” was used was in Antioch. A group…

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. According to Wikipedia, “self-righteousness also called sanctimoniousness, sententiousness and holier-than-thou attitudes is a feeling of display of…

THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE.

Knowledge is gotten from the root-word “know”. Hence, to have knowledge is to know. A saying goes “Knowledge is power” and it’s true because it is a very crucial part of living; those who know more than others tend to be those in position of power. The…

HOW TO REMAIN IN CHRIST.

As Christians, we are liable to face many challenges and persecution from people of the world. Especially in situations that require patience, it can be hard waiting when you see others cutting corners and getting it quick. No one likes to be stigmatised but at one point…

WHY YOU NEED TO BE MORE APPRECIATIVE OF JESUS.

I’m not talking about Jesus the footballer, I’m talking about Jesus the Savior. In this post, I’d be explaining why you need to be more appreciative of Jesus Christ but I can’t talk about that without giving you a background knowledge on who Jesus Christ is. Jesus…

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!

“Then He said to His disciples, ‘the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few’” Matthew 9:37. As a believer, you are called to a life of stewardship but how available are you for God’s use? With the rising, overly common passion to make more money, ride…

GET SERIOUS!

“These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.”  Matthew 15:8 The bible verse above describes perfectly, what unseriousness with God is. As a wake-up call to the body of Christ; the church and believers all around the world, I think its…

THE HUMAN MIND.

This is not an organ or something that can be physically seen or touched. It resides in the brain and manifestations of it include thoughts, emotion, memory, perception, imagination and so on; which are all activities that take place in the brain. Hence, the mind and brain…

THE HOLY SPIRIT II

“The Holy Spirit illuminates the minds of people, makes us yearn for God, and takes spiritual truth and makes it understandable to us.” Billy Graham. As mentioned in the previous post, the Holy Spirit is part of the triune Godhead and He happens to be the acting…

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Time and again, in virtually every post on this blog, there has been reference to the Holy Spirit. In sermons and messages, He is frequently mentioned. From Acts of the apostles in the bible to Revelations, He is mentioned. Most Christians still struggle and suffer things they…

STAYING POSITIVE.

What does Christianity have to do with staying positive, you may ask. But there is lot that staying positive helps you achieve as a Christian. In fact, they are somewhat interrelated. With the degree of evil and depressing things happening all around the world today, the only…

DEALING WITH GUILT.

At one point or the other, we all have been guilty of something. Be it doing that one thing your mom told you not to do or going against God’s will. And the thing is, guilt has so many adverse effects from depression, to self-hate to withdrawing…

KINDNESS.

Galatians 5:22 informs us that one of the Fruit of the Spirit is kindness. These days, it seems like there is this need to be “savage” that most people have forgotten the necessity of kindness. Do not feel so pressed to be savage that you forget to…

MAINTAINING PURITY.

“Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God” Matthew 5:8. If there is anything God glorifies, it is purity. Little wonder why the Messiah came through the Virgin Mary…she had a level of purity that God could work with. Even as humans, we tend…

OLD THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY.

If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new. That is what the bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17. The moment you accepted Jesus as your saviour, you became a new creature. That is, you…

DEALING WITH OUR WEAKNESSES.

In this post, I would like to use King Saul as a case study. Saul was envious and disobedient. He failed to put his trust in God and he let his weaknesses get to him. Many of us could have been living a better life but for…

JOY.

When talking about joy, it is important to mention that it is different from happiness. A person could be happy but lack joy. Why? Because joy is not an emotion, it is not a short-lived feeling as happiness is. For instance, if a person is depressed, he…

SELF-CONTROL.

Lack of self-control leads to multiple sins and is a major cause of many sins. The person who lost that job after misspeaking did not lose it because his or her “village people” were behind it. The person lost it because she/he lacked self-control. It’s easy to…

IMPATIENCE.

If there is one thing that has been a major constitutor to the nuisance going on in the world, it is impatience. Two drivers are arguing on the road because one of the two has bashed the other’s car. He was in a bid to overtake the…

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.

“Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit, before a fall” Proverbs 16:18. The end result of pride more often than not, is destruction. Why? Because it’s wired to work that way. A proud person is provocative to fellow humans and rejected by God. As I have…

HYPOCRISY.

If there’s one thing we’re sure of that God hates, it’s hypocrisy. Jesus dealt with other types of sinners gently but when it came to the Pharisees who were hypocrites, He was a little harsh. Really, it can be frustrating to see someone pretend to be what…

BLASPHEMY EXPLAINED.

The issue of blasphemy is one topic in the Bible that has been given multiple interpretations and has been a source of confusion to many Christians. When we read through the bible, we learn it is an unforgiveable sin (Matthew 12:31; Mark 3:27-29). However, that same bible tells…

WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT.

It’s that time of the year again and trees are decorated beautifully, carol songs are being blasted through the radios and most people are cooking up something tasty to eat. Though Jesus was not actually born on December 25, the day has been chosen to celebrate His…

WHY ME?

So many times, we go through situations we cannot understand, we go through challenges that bring us to our knees and have us question God, “why me?” In several cases of believer-turned-atheist, such situations happen to have been the triggering factor. They experience hurtful things that lead…

THE POWER OF GOD.

Sometimes, when we are not constantly reminded of a thing, we are likely to forget about it. In the type of world we live in now, we tend to be easily preoccupied with its challenges and pleasures that we forget the magnanimity of the power of God.…

SIGNIFICANT THINGS IN THE BOOK OF EXODUS.

When God’s appointed time to deliver the Israelites from the hands of Pharaoh came, it was not exactly the best of times for them. Pharaoh ordered that their labor be compounded and when God started warning the Egyptians with plagues, one could trust that the atmosphere would…

THE MAN BEHIND A GREAT EXODUS.

In case you don’t know, this man is Moses. One of the greatest Exoduses of all time was led by Moses. For several years, the Pharaoh of Egypt at that time, put God’s children through so much hardship. At God’s own appointed time, He raised Moses to…

THE BOOK OF ESTHER.

This a study of the book of Esther…well, sort of. One key lesson in the book of Esther is purpose. When Haman, the king’s right-hand man, devised a plan (a wicked one at that) to wipe out the Jews; God’s people, Esther just happened to be queen…

PARABLE OF THE PRODIGAL SON.

Luke 15:11-32. The parable of the prodigal son has many more lessons than you realize. I also just figured out. That the father had not given his sons their inheritance was because he knew what the outcome may be. When the younger son asked for his inheritance,…

FROM SHEPHERD BOY TO MIGHTY KING.

I want to remind someone out there that, just because the world or circumstances or ‘fate’ has written you off, does not mean God has written you off. David was by all means unqualified to be king. I mean, he was the last of 8 sons and…

FEAR NOT!

Fear is not a spirit that comes from God. 2 Timothy 1:7 says “For God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self-control”. Because the devil knows he is powerless over every true believer, he tries to sell two things to…

TO LOVE OR TO HATE?

Text: Matthew 5:43-48 AMP. Love in this context (this post) does not refer to the emotion rather it refers to agape love, an unselfish love that seeks the best for others. The type Jesus has for you and I. This post comes as a reminder to us…

GRACE IN COMPARISON WITH THE LAW

“MAY THE GRACE OF OUR LORD…”

More often than not, in Christian gatherings and ceremonies, after the closing prayer comes the grace. When we are asked questions that we have no definite answer to, we go for the default ‘by God’s grace’. And why does Apostle Paul keep mentioning the grace of God?…

TRIALS AND TOUGH TIMES.

JESUS SAVES.

Salvation as we know it, is not just having our souls delivered from the eternal damnation it was set for. It means to be saved and a person can be saved from different things. However, the type of salvation found in Christ is not like that in…

UNANSWERED PRAYERS.
