THE CHARACTER OF A BELIEVER: A STUDY ON THE PHARISEES

The bible is given to us not only as an instruction manual but also an instrument of correction and for wisdom acquisition. Some of the stories (which are real occurrences by the way) found in the bible are there to instruct believers for the purpose of character development and acquiring wisdom. Recently, I started learningContinue reading “THE CHARACTER OF A BELIEVER: A STUDY ON THE PHARISEES”

3 NOT SO SCRIPTURAL PHRASES COMMON AMONGST BELIEVERS.

There is a difference between what is right and what seems right. Over the past two weeks we studied the effect of the words we say. Some of the “Christian” things we say actually fall under the same category; they aren’t entirely scriptural and they can affect our walk with God, in a bigger wayContinue reading “3 NOT SO SCRIPTURAL PHRASES COMMON AMONGST BELIEVERS.”

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 or the other, we would be stigmatised forContinue reading “HOW TO REMAIN IN CHRIST.”

WHY YOU NEED TO BE MORE APPRECIATIVE OF JESUS III.

The worst thing we can do as believers is to underestimate the finished works of Christ. This underestimation begins the day we start to appreciate less, the things Jesus Christ has done for us. In addition to the posts of the past two weeks, we’d be discussing more on reasons why we should appreciate JesusContinue reading “WHY YOU NEED TO BE MORE APPRECIATIVE OF JESUS III.”

WHY YOU NEED TO BE MORE APPRECIATIVE OF JESUS II

A lot of times, especially as believers, we say things like “thank God for Jesus” but only a few times do we actually ponder on how messed up our lives would have been without Jesus. To buttress the post of last week, this week’s post will also cover the reasons why Jesus is important to us asContinue reading “WHY YOU NEED TO BE MORE APPRECIATIVE OF JESUS II”

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 be submitted to Him. When the bible speaksContinue reading “SAVIOUR BUT NOT LORD.”

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 should not, because they are yet to comeContinue reading “THE HOLY SPIRIT.”

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 became born again into the family of Christ.Continue reading “OLD THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY.”

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 birth. But what does this all mean? InContinue reading “WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT.”

4 MISCONCEPTIONS THAT NEED TO BE CLEARED ABOUT BEING A CHRISTIAN.

“Thou shall not call the name of the Lord thy God in vain” Exodus 20:7. This is one of the commandments of God to the children of Israel and subsequently, every believer. However, over time especially in the area where I live, this statement has been misinterpreted over and over again. When I was aContinue reading “4 MISCONCEPTIONS THAT NEED TO BE CLEARED ABOUT BEING A CHRISTIAN.”

FOUR TIMES WE SEE A REFLECTION OF JESUS BEFORE THE NAME JESUS WAS EVEN MENTIONED.

For some weeks now, I have been studying a bible plan called “Jesus in all of Genesis” on Youversion Bible. It is centered on the times we see Jesus in the entire book of Genesis. This bible plan along with the Holy Spirit, have been a great inspiration to today’s post. When Isaac was aboutContinue reading “FOUR TIMES WE SEE A REFLECTION OF JESUS BEFORE THE NAME JESUS WAS EVEN MENTIONED.”

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 have been tense (Exodus 5,7-11). To them itContinue reading “SIGNIFICANT THINGS IN THE BOOK OF EXODUS.”

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 be the one who would deliver His childrenContinue reading “THE MAN BEHIND A GREAT EXODUS.”

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 at that moment (Esther 3). Esther had wantedContinue reading “THE BOOK OF ESTHER.”

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 he was not even a warrior, he wasContinue reading “FROM SHEPHERD BOY TO MIGHTY KING.”

PRISON BEFORE PALACE:

LESSONS I LEARNT FROM JOSEPH’S LIFE.              N.B: this is going to be a long article but hopefully, an impactful one…enjoy! I know, the topic seems cliché. If you’re an African, precisely a Nigerian, you’ve probably heard that phrase before. But hopefully you’d learn something different today. By the way, I don’t mean an actualContinue reading “PRISON BEFORE PALACE:”
