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, God is saying to us “be still andContinue reading BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.

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 downplay of love by many, is a majorContinue reading “LOVE: GONE COLD.”

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 that we keep hearing about it. Matter ofContinue reading LOVE.

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 believers must remain a body of warmth andContinue reading THE COMPASSIONATE CHRISTIAN.

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 this phrase from a different angle. It’s veryContinue reading THE PROFESSION OF FAITH.

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 set of people. Using the Scriptures to pray,Continue reading PRAYING EFFECTIVELY 2.

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 the gentiles (and us) and Boaz represents JesusContinue reading REDEEMED: THE RUTH STORY.

REDEEMED: BOUGHT BY THE BLOOD.

Redemption, according to Google is the action of saving or being saved from sin, error or evil or the action of regaining or gaining possession of something in exchange for payment or clearing a debt. We were in need of salvation and had such a huge debt to pay but Jesus paid it all withContinue reading REDEEMED: BOUGHT BY THE BLOOD.

THE SETTLE FOR LESS CHRISTIAN.

With just a few hours left to the New Year, many of us are evaluating our 2021 to know whether or not it was a successful year by our books. We want to know whether it was successful in terms of finance, social relations, academics, career and spiritual growth. For some, it was a goodContinue reading THE SETTLE FOR LESS CHRISTIAN.

WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT- (re-blogged).

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 something tasty to eat. A lot of controversy about Christmas rise at this time, with people questioning whether or not it’s right to celebrate the day. Though Jesus was notContinue reading “WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT- (re-blogged).”

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 in the finished work of Christ, that is,Continue reading “LIGHT OF THE WORLD.”

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 being a child. 1 Corinthians 14:20 refers toContinue reading “LIKE LITTLE CHILDREN.”

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 message of salvation, empowering them with a knowledgeContinue reading “SAVED TO SAVE.”

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 for the evil that has happened to usContinue reading THE BLAME GAME II.
