I remember informing you that we were working on a better site for our blog. Now we have a new site and you are encouraged to always visit, read the posts, comment and also share with your friends.
We are certain that you’d be truly blessed.
To this end, the link for the new site is
1 John 4:7 – 8 says Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
What a great scripture, you see it ain’t enough to be born of God to be able to walk in love. It also transcends to knowing God as love. As it says any man that does not love doesn’t know God (Love) not isn’t born of God. Because you can speak in tongues (meaning you’ve been born of the Spirit and still not love – Mark 16:17, 1 Cor. 13:1)
You’ll know God as love when you spend time in fellowship with His Spirit regularly.
Study His word, pray in other tongues, worship Him and you’d come to a full knowledge of God’s love.
Always make a confession like this – ” I walk in love everyday of my life”
Let your prayer be – Lord help me to know you as love today.
I can assure you that you’ll grow in love by these.
Initially, the truth might not be the fact. But hold on to the truth till it becomes a fact. You see, God’s word never fails, it will only yield results to them who believe the word. God has never lied, and will never lie. When He says a thing, He definitely means it.
He never speaks reality with respect to the world. He does with respect to His word, which is the Truth. That’s God’s definition of reality. Let that be your definition too. Because we know from scriptures that Through faith the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Heb. 11:3
The reality and tangibility of the world came into existence by the word of God and that same word is still potent today, let the Word define you. Keep practicing and speaking the word of God to cause a great influence in your life.
Apply God’s word in your life today!!!
The message of Grace is the gospel.
Man tried righteousness by works, that didn’t work out. Until Christ came and did all the work himself, now all you’ve got to do is believe in Jesus.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:8-10
Grace overshadows the law. Through Jesus, grace was brought to you and all you needed to do was to plug into it through faith and you immediately became righteous. It was that simple. Such an effortless and easy way.
No man can ever enter heaven by trying to obey the laws, because none will ever be justified or made righteous with that system. Rom. 3:20
People should quit trying to be righteous by works and believe in the finished work of Christ. That’s the only way to become righteous and enter heaven. Selah
Christ died for the world and lives forever
He conquered sin and death which was the capital punishment for sin.
So what now…
Now Christ lives forever, He has given you the word of reconciliation… All of these new things are from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and who gave us the ministry of reconciliation. In other words, God was reconciling the world to himself through Christ, by not counting people’s sins against them. He has trusted us with this message of reconciliation. 2 Cor.5:18-19 (CEB)
The point is this: Jesus has played His role of reconciling you to the Father, and now as the Father sent Him, the same way He (Jesus) has sent you (John 20:21) and given you the word of reconciliation. Therefore play your own role, you are a proof that Jesus is alive, He saved you and gave you eternal life, peace the Holy Spirit and His word which is infallible.
What else do you want?
To excel and make it in life, you have that ultimate manual(The Bible) as guide.
Spread the gospel by every means. You are now responsible for that.
Jesus is alive forever
What a great privilege God has given the world.
You see, in the old covenant, the children of Israel asked God to give them laws and they were so sure they would obey them, but it was all to no avail.
The laws given gave power to sin. (Rom. 7:7-8) Wow, what an irony.
God proved to man that no one can attain righteousness by works. Even if you had laws, you will find it difficult to obey them(Rom. 7:15-25). So of what use were the laws anyways…
Now Jesus has gotten us the victory, through His death which was born out of love for the world (Rom. 5:8)… So much love for you and I. For God so loved you and I, He gave His only begotten son (Jesus) to be the down payment for our wrongs, and now for anybody who dares to believe in Him, such one will be made righteous instantly, have power over satan, poverty, sickness, sin and depth. And above all, will have eternal life.
That’s why today, we celebrate the finished work of Christ.
In Christ we have hope, victory over sin and death.
I celebrate you today my beloved friend for the victories you now have in Christ.
Sometimes, it is necessary for us to just sit down to think of where we are presently, and go down memory lane where we first started, remembering and recognizing those dark moments.
How God brought you through your transitioning from valley to the zenith of the mountain.
And now your present state; filled and specially crafted by all your experiences, making you the Godly, disciplined and whole person that you are now.
Therefore with retrospection you come to the conclusion ‘I am what I am by the grace of God’.
Looking forward to the glorious victories ahead of you, not that you are better or more spiritual but it is the grace of God that has seen you through this far.
What you see most times is not what you get
What you decide to get is what you get, you may see challenges, you may see impossibility, you may see uncertainties, but you can decide to see opportunities, take your mind away from I cannot do it! to, I CAN, and I WILL, that’s what would take you forward. Every NO is an avenue for a YES because you cannot open a door that is already open. Your decision counts a great deal, what have you decided yet?
There is a difference, but it seems not to be evident… why?
We all dress alike, act alike, talk alike, are you a Christian?… yes, look at yourself and answer the question, mare you truly a Christian. O.K let me put it this way, are you a son of God?
A son of God would not say curse words, a son of God won’t sing songs that glorify the deeds of the world (drunkenness, fornication, etc), a son of God won’t dress (oh my God)
Don’t get this wrong, dress well, dress impressively, but dress responsibly.
What am I saying? This is a question you have to answer- look at yourself, look at the unbeliever beside you.
There has to be a clear distinction between the Christian and unbelievers.
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” – Galatians 6:2
A wealthy man is not he that has enough for himself, but he that has enough for he and others too. If you desire increase, then you MUST be ready to increase your sphere of influence. You must be ready to break free from the setback of old records and capacities and move unto higher levels. Start from today, intentionally reach out to one or 2 more persons than you would normally do. Go the extra mile for someone else. Give and sacrifice your own pleasure to ensure someone else is okay. Share another person’s pain and confusion, render help support and counsel to more people than you would naturally do. A man once said “It is madness to do the same thing the same way and expect a different result.”
The bottom line is this: “INCREASE” (more) is a product of more, but not more receiving instead more giving/ bearing of another’s burden.
Action Point: Give more, Listen more, Do more, Be more, Bear more and you’ll INCREASE more.
God bless you.
