DAY THIRTY-TWO: Responsible Followership

What manner of people are we supposed to be in following Christ?What manner of people are we supposed to be in following other brethren in Christ?What manner of people are we supposed to be in following other people outside of Christ . . .”in Christ” do not necessarily mean “the Church.” The age-long question has…

DAY TWENTY-SIX: Hidden Move

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter and it is the honor of kings to search them out. God indeed has secrets. He speaks to His people; yet, not all that He says is for public consumption. One would ask, why would God conceal matters of serious importance to mankind? Why would…

DAY THIRTEEN: Words and the Spirit

The word of God has been taught, so much that the listeners and learners hardly remember much of it after the teacher or preacher is done. Why? The mind is not a repository of wisdom, knowledge or understanding, the heart is! Only spirits are capable of writing upon the heart of another spirit. It is…

DAY SEVEN: The Word and the World

Earlier today, I was led to study from the book of James 4, where we saw that there is no such thing as a balance between the World and the WORD of God; they actually do not agree on any subject. Later on in the day, I was reminded by Facebook that four years ago,…

First Response

A couple of years ago, I met a very high-ranking clergy. I had the opportunity to meet him for a matter and in the middle of our conversations, Life By The Word, a Bible contemplation piece that I had written, came to the fore in our discussions. He asked me a question and said: “What…

What is Your Cost?

Thirty one years ago, when I gave my life to Christ, my view of the kingdom of God was totally different from what my experiences had been. I had just received Christ into my heart and I was burning with so much passion for the LORD (Still I am). The message from the preacher that…

Telling your Story . . .

A friend asked why our cities are full of churches and the world is yet to be turned upside down; depite the fact that it took one Paul and Asia was turned upside down and one Moses and the entire nation of Israel was delivered. Well, the answers are in one word – the DESIGN….

An Unknown Companion

The Christian walk with God after meeting Him is like a pilgrimage to the destination, which is God Himself [1]. That destination is not a success, accomplishment, or prosperity; it is God Himself! On this journey, many had suffered a loss; wreckage, and undue troubles because of misinformation on ‘who’ [not what] the destination is,…

Uncomfortably Different

I watched a movie titled #TheAccountant in which the father of an autistic child told him the he is different and that more or less, with time, people would become terrified with someone different. The saying is true… What is also true is that being uncommonly different seems intolerable to most people these days…soon they…

The True Cost

This morning, so much is on my mind and yet, I am unable to adequately put them to words because words may fail in truly defining and expressing them. Still, I would use words in the best way I can.   In the middle of church service yesterday, I realized that many times, we really…
