The 100 Percent Heart

As the year draws to a close, it is a time to take stock of all that had taken place and to prepare for the coming year if the Lord tarries. One question that must be uppermost in our hearts even at this time is ‘how have I fared this year with all that the Lord gave to me?’ We must bear in mind that we were placed on this earth for a purpose and we will give an account of the time spent. No wonder the Bible warned us: “Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk – not as unwise people but as wise – making the most of the time because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:15-16). Beloved how much of God’s word did you work this year in review? If the Lord were to come now, are you indeed sure of going with Him? So many shut their eyes in sleep and opened them, some others shut them in sleep and were unable to open them again. They were declared dead! Their time as destined by God had simply come for them to answer the eternal call.         Jesus Christ gave a parable of the Sower and…

Take Out The Poison!

A man of God recently declared that children of God that hold contrary views to his on what the House of God is should not spread their poison to his Church to confuse his members. This is true as so many have risen amongst the brethren preaching deviant doctrines in order to lure disciples into following them (Acts 20:30). Thus, we are admonished as overseers to be alert to watch over ourselves and the flock of God; when certain doctrines are propagated and supported by Scriptures, we are to go to God with it, so the truth will be revealed to us. We cannot presume to know all, except that which is revealed to us: “For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood [by God]”

Don’t Be Locked Down, Increase In Him!

After healing Peter’s mother-in-law in Luke 4:38-41, people from the town of Capernaum and neighboring towns brought their sick and those that are demon possessed to be healed by Jesus Christ. He did heal them all; the next day they came searching for Him again and they went as far as wanting to prevent Him from leaving their town. Their thinking may have being to lock Him down in their town so He could be their personal healer and talisman. One could just glance at the story and miss one of the important lessons therein. So many wonderful children of God have being locked down in their fellowships, Churches, work places and the likes making them comfortable but unfruitful in the things of God because they are stunted in their spiritual growth: “The person who lacks these things is blind and shortsighted, and has forgotten the cleansing from his past sins” (2Peter 1:9). It is truly great to experience the Lord at the level you are in, but God is not static, you need to grow in you…
