The Righteousness of the Gospel

John 3:17 (KJV) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. The purpose for which Christ came into the world is obvious, and it is to that purpose we are called His followers. Therefore, we preach the Gospel in such a way that its content remains true while its presentation is not in betrayal of Christ’s purpose. We are not called to bring condemnation to people,…

Thanksgiving: The Believer’s Way of Life

Psalm 100:4 (KJV) Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. The approach determines response. It is a spiritual and natural law that the way and manner in which you approach someone determines the response you will receive. God is both our Father and our God; we, therefore, must understand the necessity of approaching Him as such. Reverence, Praise, and Worship are biblical and reveal manners by which we…

God’s Grace is Sufficient for you

2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJV) And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Christianity is not an immunity from the challenges of life. The profound thing about the Bible is that it is Truth, and it declares and reveals practical principles of life. God has never failed to declare to us that…

Wisdom for Godly Living

Proverbs 13:20 (KJV)  He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. The Bible presents to us practically every answer we need in handling life circumstances and issues. The power of companionship or friendship can’t be denied. Companions and friendships influence our lives in ways that we cannot deny. So we are encouraged to understand how the choice we make per companionship or friendship ultimately affects our lives. Certain factors may contribute…

God wants you to PROSPER!

3 John 2 (KJV) Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. Many people are unable to trust because they are uncertain of the intent and motive of others towards them. It is often a natural thing with humans to be skeptical of others, especially if they have been victimized in the past. So the idea of I have difficulty in trusting others becomes normalized in them, and they…

What is your ‘CONFESSION’?

1 John 4:15 (KJV) Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. The power of confession cannot be underestimated. However, it is essential to establish that confession in itself without faith in the person making such confession will amount to nothing. We heard it been said, “Confession is Possession,” implying that by what we say, we stand to see or receive, as factual as that may sound, it is not…

Let Us Seek God’s Approval, not men.

Galatians 1:1-10 (KJV) Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) Approval is something we crave for and often seek both for ourselves and from others. It is usually a natural phenomenon that we are born with, and in most cases, we want people to approve of us. The danger inherent in seeking the approval of people is that, in most cases, it is very conditional…

Love ALWAYS defeat Fear

1 John 4:18 (KJV) There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. There are many reasons why people fear or feel afraid. Fear has a dual effect on each individual, it can bring about change, or it can become bondage unto which people are unable to release themselves from it. It is a natural response to circumstances that are overwhelming and uncertain; however,…

God Commands us to LOVE one another

Romans 13:10 (KJV) Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. We seek it and are drawn to it as humans. It is the hallmark of genuine relationships. Those who live by its standards make a lot of difference in the world. It is the very nature of God. We are called and commanded to live by it. It is spoken of as the only hallmark of being a follower of Jesus Christ.…

You can Trust the Goodness of God

Nahum 1:7 (KJV) The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. One of the things people seek in relationships is consistency and commitment. We all seek to relate with people or persons of goodwill as well as persons whose nature we can depend on. The Bible speaks of God as that One whom we can rely on for His nature is that of goodness. The goodness of God is one of…

Enjoy the Privilege of Revelation and Knowledge

Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV) Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. People do anything to obtain information, especially when such information will be beneficial to them. Governments send spy agencies and individuals to other countries to source information as to know what that country is doing and how to prevent them from attacking their country. So, information is said to be power. The lack of information, in most cases,…

The Peace of God is our Inheritance

Isaiah 54:10 (KJV) For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee. The revelation and understanding of His nature and character are the central keys to overcoming life’s challenges. God is forever committed to showing us how much He loves us and how much he is committed to our wellbeing. It is His pleasure to ensure…
