How Far Can Your Light Go?

      With the rapid growth of technology and ‘chameleonic’ teaching of God’s word, it seems godlessness is slowly taking over the hearts of children of God. Things that ought to make us ashamed are explained away using the very same Scriptures that condemn such acts. If we claim that because of political correctness there is nothing much we can do to stem the tide of evil in the work space (this is still not an excuse), what about our ‘own space’? The space that we have in our homes, the Church, the community and even on the internet, how have we utilized our space? As children of God, we have a mandate to shine our light so that people will see and give glory to God in Heaven (Matthew 5:16). No one is arguing that you have the light or not. As a child of God, it is presumed that you carry the light of God; beloved, the question is, how far can your light go? Jesus told us that we are the light of the world: we shouldn’t hide our light nor allow it to be put out. We are light for a r

Bow Face Down

       To say the times are hard is an understatement; so many have lost jobs, businesses, homes, relationships, reputation and the likes. As a result of these losses, some children of God are questioning God’s love for them: If truly this way is the right way and the only way for them. Some even believe it is the will of God for them to remain in their dire straits as they believe they have tried everything to come out of their situation and nothing seem to be working. To such, their service to God is just mere lip service as their hearts have left the faith. If you are in such a situation, I am here to tell you that Jesus Christ is truly the ONLY WAY and the RIGHT one at that. It doesn’t matter what you see, if you come to Him on His terms, not yours, He is ABLE and WILLING to deliver you from whatever is holding you bound. This is not strange or peculiar to our time.         In Luke 5:12-14, we see an account of a man that had a skin disease that approached Christ for healing. “W

…And Is Free Indeed

      There is lawlessness in the air today that gives people the impetus and boldness to live as they please. It tries to negate a life lived in righteousness and godliness by saying it is impossible to do on one hand and declaring erroneously that once one comes to Christ, the person is free from all entanglements of the dark world. This is why so many still struggle with one form of sin or the other despite being born again and serving the Lord Jesus Christ. This is not strange, Judas lived it as well! As children of God, we have been called into a relationship with Jesus Christ: A relationship that swallows up our former way of life on a daily basis and leads us to be like Him in every aspect of our lives. This lifestyle is not automatic as many want to believe but a daily process: A process that exposes every dark, fleshy area of our life by cutting such off with the knife (God’s word). In other words, it’s a process of cut and nip of everything that has a semblance of flesh, so

It’s Not About Being Good But Being Godly!

      Saul’s father sent him to go find his lost donkeys that had wondered off, this was before he became the king of Israel. Saul and his attendant searched for a long time in different regions and could not locate them until they came to the land of Zuph. At that point, Saul fearing his father would have become worried for their safety suggested they return home but his attendant replied: “Look,…there’s a man of God in this city who is highly respected; everything he says is sure to come true…” (1Samuel 9:6a). This man of God, whom we later discovered to be Samuel, was well respected because he was godly and a man of integrity. Being godly meant he carried God in all that he did! He didn’t just mouth God’s word, he lived it! One may argue that it would be easy to live such lives in that period because things were relatively simple. I’m sure the people of that era will disagree. Throughout history, we find that people that live in any era are equipped and well suited to live in that

Is The Joy Of The Lord Your Strength?

      It is not strange to see people that are depressed, spiritually weak, dissatisfied and sad about the goings on in their lives fill the pews every Sunday Worship Service, Sunday School and weekly Bible Studies and leave the same way they had come. Not because the Word was not preached but they are yet to get an understanding of what they had heard and how it would work for them: “I bear them witness that they have a [certain] zeal and enthusiasm for God, but it is not enlightened and according to [correct and vital] knowledge” (Romans 10:2, AMP).  God’s word is true, real and it works. But for it to do so in your life you must understand it to walk in it in order to access the blessings therein. No wonder, the Bible tells us: “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding” (Proverbs 4:7). Even as we get all the principles about becoming the next millionaire or billionaire, marrying the right person or nailing the best business o
