WHAT IS ON YOUR CV?

What is on your CV? I’m not asking for your professional CV…academic credentials or career accomplishments I’m talking about your “spiritual qualifications” and “medals”. The Apostles of old had a CV. The contents had nothing to do with what they had achieved in the flesh. One of them boldly said he counted everything he had […]

LORD, BREAK ME

 Lord, Break Me I remember reading a book sometime in the mid 90’s titled “Lord break me!” Right on the front page of the book was a picture of a man’s head with cracks and contours at the instance of a finger that was somewhat believed to be a divine one pointed from above. it […]

ONCE UPON A TIME

Once Upon a Time The story of man’s redemption is like every love story that begins with “once upon a time” and ends with “…and they lived happily ever after” Man, the crown of all God’s creation was lost in the jungle of sin. He couldn’t help himself neither could he bring himself out. He […]

DON’T PACK YOUR BAGS YET!

DON’T PACK YOUR BAGS YET Have you ever felt like giving up? On people, personal projects, places, or life itself? Have you ever been hard pressed that you thought of throwing in the towel? Then welcome to the real world! One of the major elements of the world that we live in is the fact […]

EXPLAINING PROVERBS 4:18

Explaining Proverbs 4:18    “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day” (Prov. 4:18).   This verse is often used for birthday salutations and felicitations a lot… and it has been notoriously abused even with good intentions.   It is a major prayer/confession […]

The Joy of the Lord

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation” (Isa. 12: 2-3). In the world today, many look for things that will calm […]

CONCERNING QUIET TIME AND FAMILY ALTAR (Part 3)

We have seen thus far the importance of giving the early hours of our day to the Lord in prayer and meditation in His Word. We have also seen biblical examples that are worthy of emulation especially that of our Lord Jesus Christ when He was here on earth. In the Gospel according to Saint […]

CONCERNING QUIET TIME AND FAMILY ALTAR (Part 2)

It is true the term “quiet time” cannot be found in the bible but the footprints of its practice are all over the scriptures. It is a time set aside to pray or to ponder on things pertaining to God and His Word. The word “quiet” suggests that there is absence of noise or bustle. […]

Concerning Quiet Time and Family Altar (Part 1)

At one time, we thought Quiet time was old fashion To gather your family together for prayer time in the morning became old school We thought waking up early in the morning before doing anything to pray and study the bible was legalistic So we said, “you don’t have to rise up early in the […]

THE SHADOW OF A DOG

The shadow of a dog has never bitten anyone, has it? Never be afraid of the devil’s threats, scares or barks in form of symptoms of sickness, lack, insufficiency, demonic interference or infiltration etc I heard the story of a dear Man of God, Lester Sumrall. One night, he was fast asleep and was woken […]

Storm ready, are you?

A few nights ago while watching my favourite international news channel CNN, I saw a big sign written in red as the camera zoomed through the gulf coast of Florida. This sign was placed there in preparation for the landfall of a monstrous hurricane called “Hurricane Michael”( I wonder why a hurricane should be called […]

My Local Church, My Spiritual Growth

My Local Church, My Spiritual Growth The church is a house of spiritual growth. It is not a centre for entertainment, comedy or dissipation of energy which some call “high praises”. We sing or worship with a mindset of spiritual growth. “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and […]

HOW TO HONOUR GOD IN YOUR BODY

Sexual sins are real. There are evident cravings of our body that if we give attention to them, we’ll yield to all sorts of sexual temptations. If we don’t yield to the very acts, we may burn with lustful passion. James points our attention to the process of temptation “But every man is tempted, when […]

Kill that spiritual boredom

Boredom happens to us all. Spiritual boredom is when you feel spiritual activities are too monotonous to comply with. Prayer, bible study, evangelism, walking in love, attending church meetings etc. are no longer a delight. You are bored when you feel like walking away from your commitment to growing up spiritually. Boredom is a symptom […]

VALUABLE LESSONS ON CONTENTMENT

We all are living in a world where the word “contentment” sounds strange. Human beings generally speaking are never satisfied with material things, pursuits, endeavours, projects, connections, positions etc. It seems everyone has been infected with Oliver Twist’s popular quote in Charles Dickens’ fictional novel “Please sir, I want more”. We just want more, it […]

LOYALTY : A TRUE TEST OF FOLLOWERSHIP – PART 2

Let’s continue to look at the characteristics of disloyal people. Remember, we said, Number one, they don’t like to submit to authority. Number two, they are over ambitious. Number three, they gossip a lot. They are tale bearers. Let’s look at the rest and consciously avoid these pitfalls. Disloyal people are not dependable in the […]

LOYALTY: A TRUE TEST OF FOLLOWERSHIP – PART 1

“Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?” (Prov. 20:6) Many don’t realize that loyalty is a major component of followership. Another word for loyalty is faithfulness. It can be defined as an ability to remain committed to a cause, person or persons no matter what happens. […]

Believers Do not go on Holidays

“Therefore be very careful how you live – not as unwise but as wise, taking advantage of every opportunity, because the days are evil” (Eph. 5:15-16). NET. Truth be told, we have an enemy who hates our guts. He does not like our resilience. He stays busy all the time to distract us so we […]

You shall have what you say

I didn’t cook up those six words, they fell from the mouth of the Master Himself. “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith […]

“Serving the Lord (The lessons I’ve learnt)” is locked Serving the Lord (The lessons I’ve learnt)

As this year runs to an end, I have been doing a lot of reflection. The memories of events of the last two decades or more have been flooding my mind. Let me share one of such with you. In the mid 90’s, I had friends who were passionate about serving Jesus. We all loved […]

A Shepherd’s Heart

I wrote this in honour of shepherds who are sincerely and genuinely labouring in the Word and doctrine over God’s flock, yet despised and abused by some of those under their care. Be encouraged, great is your reward in the presence of your Chief Shepherd (1 Pet. 5:1-4). A Shepherd’s Heart Some people wonder Funny, […]

Church Attendance!

Every church attendance begins with good planning. Nobody gets to the church on time and participates adequately without planning for it. Don’t be an Accidental Church Attendant (ACA). Be a Disciplined Church Participant (DCP) An ACA only realizes that he/she needs to be in church when he/she wakes up in the morning. He/she gets to […]

What About February 14th?

Are we to celebrate Valentine? Who was Valentine? Saint or Sinner? What does the day represent? Sacrificial love or sensual lust? It is very easy for a Christian to be caught up in debates, trying to make sense out of an event that is popularly and widely celebrated like Valentine’s day . Our posture to […]

Moving From Desires to Decisions

Desires are good, decisions are better. The devil is not afraid of your desires, he trembles when your desires are turned to decisions. A desire is a show of intention while a decision is a concrete commitment to making that intention a reality. A decision is a desire turned to an action. “I have decided” […]

Fellows

Who are we? Fellows in the same ship Adelphos Born from the same womb Bound by the cords of love Sharers of the common faith Treasures within our vessels Creatures of divinity Pleasures of eternity Humanity our equality Future in view nothing can stop us No foe can hinder us except we permit Led by […]

Distractions, Distractions, Distractions

They don’t come as distractions They often come disguised as necessities Seemingly reasons for loquacity mingled with laziness Important things neglected Not so important things attended to Ever talking never working The distracted love the company of the distracted Their goal is to distract the undistracted To have many more in the valley of distractions […]

A HEART FIXED

Fixated on the Word Not bothered by the storms Upheld by His love Not perturbed by the dark forms His presence in me My assurance of eternal hope Eyes fixed on Him mind at rest I’ve found joy in Him Even in the coldest night His Spirit in me my guiding light Without are fights […]
