What are you full of?

 And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which isContinue reading “What are you full of?”

Death in the collected

Fight the good fight of the faith [in the conflict with evil]; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and [for which] you made the good confession [of faith] in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12 (AMP) Jesus is building His church and collecting together His children who formContinue reading “Death in the collected”

Think and study

So I am writing my dissertation on the issue of the coexistence of corruption and religion in Nigeria. Interestingly Nigeria held second place for most religious country in the world in 2013 and yet it currently holds place as the 27th most corrupt county in the world according to Transparency International. So what’s happening? ChurchesContinue reading “Think and study”

To love

Today I learnt a valuable lesson about love, and about what this verse means.”And Jesus replied to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 The second is like it, ‘You shall loveContinue reading “To love”

Attending to the Big Picture

Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady andContinue reading “Attending to the Big Picture”

It Is Essential!

Growing up, praying was generally boring for me. I remember deliberately trying to make myself tired during secondary school so that when it was time for evening fellowship, I would sleep to avoid praying. But Jesus being God, is constantly working on my heart so much so that praying has become part of my everydayContinue reading “It Is Essential!”

Each Day As It Comes

Growing up, my mum used to say tomorrow would take care of itself. I have come to realise that, it is actually the best way to look at life. Everyday has its own trouble.it is therefore unwise to begin to bother about the trouble of next month, when this month hasn’t even finished. 25 “Therefore IContinue reading “Each Day As It Comes”

Walking the talk

  I realise that after writing this post, I will lose lots of friends but then it’s really not about you or me. It’s about Jesus! Do you claim to be a follower of Jesus, tongue speaking, saved and sanctified? Then please act like it. Let your confession match your action. I hear lots ofContinue reading “Walking the talk”

Flat or Spherical earth?

So yesterday, I saw something on social media which was basically arguing that the earth is flat and disked shaped. Proponents of this theory sounded like they had their arguments in order. Most of us have been taught that the shape of the earth is spherical and even though we haven’t seen it for ourselves,Continue reading “Flat or Spherical earth?”

It is not by Force!

Being Nigerian and being on social media (i.e. Facebook), I have been seeing lots of videos and people who claim to be Pastors, doing weird things like making people eat grass or washing them with bleach and water because apparently, the Blood of Jesus is not enough! I am very sad about these things andContinue reading “It is not by Force!”
