Of Ministrations and Fellowship

Recently, I had a conversation with a pastor in training. He is presently a student at a renowned Bible College. We had the rare opportunity of talking about working in ministry. After spending some time with him, I found out that he has a very deep conviction that God has called him into ministry but…

What are we doing?

It has been about three Sundays since we haven’t been able to literally go to church on Sundays. So many people are almost totally disenfranchised from the whole idea of church gathering; though they are genuinely saved. So, I have been meditating on the realities of the impact of COVID-19 on all we have come…

An Invitation

It is required of anyone that is called of God to heed the call immediately. A friend told me last night that not obeying God promptly is itself a disobedience. However, the dilemma of the called is that though the response must be immediate, the reason for the call may take a while to come…

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,…

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…

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…

The Power of Sacrifice

A couple of days back, I stumbled on a presentation on Trinity Broadcast Network (TBN) on DsTV, featuring the son of Pastor John Hagee’s son preaching to the church’s congregation about ‘Family Business’. He started with the story of his grandmother, who happened to be divinely gifted by the LORD to preach so well that,…

Of Revelation and Exposition

Yesterday, my wife and I were listening to a famous global preacher as he taught on hearing from the LORD. His position was that it is impossible to hear from God by yourself; according to him, God must speak to you through people before you can ascertain that God has spoken. His basis for this…

The Peril of Offended Brethren

” . . . It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they come! Take heed to yourselves, if your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him .” NKJV  – Luke 17 : 1, 3 “ . . . Looking carefully, lest anyone fall…

The Matter with Zion

The argument on the state of the church is really not much to debate. Those who understand the times would know that whatever is happening now has been long coming. Somehow, we have tasted the pleasures of the city and the consecration that the mountain of the LORD’s house requires has become too lofty for…
