Working for God

One of the unique things about the Christian faith is that it is focused on the person of God than the practices of faith…with the LORD, the ‘walk’ is of more priority than the ‘work’ since the ‘work’ is an inevitable offshoot of the ‘walk’.If your understanding of worship to God is defined by what…

God and The Lowly

Thugs on the street and very ‘broke’ people have kept their words more than refined and buoyant folks. It seems for the former, all they have are their words, so it counts… Well, ironically, they share this trait with God, who exalts His words above His name. Who do you belong to? Thugs on the…

Protocol to the Voice

The thunder is deafening, So is the volume of His ministers; The storm is fierce and strong, So is the sound of His servants; Like the riders before the king, Like the color party before the troops, All encounters with creatures are to the still small voice… The stimulus is necessary, The precursors are vital,…

Above all, Love

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13:13 NKJV It is not news that faith can move mountains and see things in ways they have never been before; faith makes impossible possible! It is not out of place to hope against all odds for value…to…

We really haven’t met with God, though we have received deliverance, salvation, provision, preservation and help from Him. (Exodus 19:17) For those who have met with God, their major…

Transactional Faith

“The just shall live by his faith”, that is what the Bible says; coincidentally, it is also the theme of a summit in my church…yet I have not stopped wondering what kind of faith we have these days. Because this statement is true and the word of God is infallible, it means that each one…

What is Your Story . . .

Hi! Hope your weekend went well. I believe you are having a fantastic start to your new week. Yesterday, I was listening to a charge, given to young people, by a man of God in Ibadan. He reminded us all that age happens to us without notice. He suddenly realized that his hair was receding…

Flourishing in Captivity, Reigning in Chains

Sometimes ago, precisely four years back, I wrote a piece on a Sunday morning…Let me share it with you: “Today I would be going to church…and I am so excited about it. I would be going there because I am looking forward to worshipping God with others again. Would you? However, something is heavy upon my…
