THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE.

Knowledge is gotten from the root-word “know”. Hence, to have knowledge is to know.

3 NOT SO SCRIPTURAL PHRASES COMMON AMONGST BELIEVERS 2.

As mentioned in last week’s post, that a phrase is popular among believers does not exactly mean it is scriptural.

HOW TO REMAIN IN CHRIST.

As Christians, we are liable to face many challenges and persecution from people of the world.

No one likes to be stigmatised but at one point or the other, we would be stigmatised forContinue reading “HOW TO REMAIN IN CHRIST.”

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?

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.

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.
