Persevere…Carry the Fire of God!

A child of God that carries the life of God without any compromise in this times have always being an enigma to the world and professing Christians alike. It is not enough to profess that we carry this life; it must become our daily lifestyle and reality, not because we want to prove something to the world but because we love and are passionate about God and ALL that concerns Him. We saw this passion in the life of Enoch. Despite the depraved times (he lived in and had a family in those wicked times), he kept the fire of God burning in his heart. God gave an instruction in Leviticus 6: 13 “A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out” . Our hearts is the altar of God now; the fire of God (passion for God) must keep burning on it and must never go out. That fire is the sign that we carry light and life in us. When you see a person without passion for God or the things of God, look for the fire. It is either quenched or about to go out! The testimony of the men o

Until You become a Lamb Of God

"I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His suffering, becoming like Him in His death" Philippians 3:10 N.I.V. When you look at this scripture carefully one would wonder why Paul after the much work he had accomplished for the sake of the gospel, he still confessed his lack of knowing fully Who Christ is. His testimony had clearly shown his wisdom in his walk with God. He knew that inspite of all, he had yet attained the full knowledge of God. He understood that the true knowledge of who God is, is incomprehensible for the human mind. Little wonder the prayer he offered for the Ephesians in  Ephesians 3: 17b-19 .   You see there are many dimensions and depth to this great God we serve, He is love, compassion, grace, beauty, mercy, forgiveness and many more wonderful virtues we are quite accustomed to but fully understand. However this same God is the God of war and of wrath that visits the sins of the fathers


      Perseverance, not a word popularly found in our vocabulary today, however in it lies a major ingredient for our walk with God. What exactly is perseverance? The Free On-line Dictionary defines it as " Steady persistence in adhering to a course of  action, a belief or a purpose, steadfastness, to persist in or remain constant to a purpose... in the face of obstacles or discouragement ".       As a child of God bearing in mind the times we are in we would realize and quite agree that this is definitely an attribute needed to become who God wants us to be. Why you might ask? Lets look at this scripture together: " Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything " James 1:2-4 N.I.V.      The word of God admonishes us to be joyful about the many persecution

Your Walk…? It Is Your Responsibility!

Have you ever considered your walk with the Lord Jesus Christ, how would you rate it? Do you have a part to play in it or you simply ‘go with the flow’ since you are born again? So many rate their walk with the Master by what their pastors say. The pastor tells you, you are doing great in your walk even when there are obvious shortcomings on your part. The excuse given is that, once these shortcomings are pointed out to you, you will become discouraged but if you are told ‘you’re doing great’, the tendency (according to their reasoning) is that you will be motivated to walk deeper. The Scripture is filled with men that had shortcomings and we saw how God rebuked them, how they turned to the Lord and He helped them. The Bible tells us to help restore a fallen brother or sister in the spirit of gentleness but equally taking heed to ourselves so as not to be tempted. The truth is, we have hyped the ‘restoring in gentleness’ but forgot to take heed to ourselves. In restoring a brother
