THE TEMPTATION OF CHRIST II

Matthew 4: 1-11 If you are the Son of God… God directed and their escape route ended at the shore of the Red Sea. God took them there to prove He’s the game changer. Moses followed the Lord’s instructions and yet they came to a dead end. However, that was the beginning of miracles in the midst of misery. David took Uriah’s wife and his life but even the man after God’s heart paid squarely for his sins ( 2 Samuel 12:9-10; 18). Does that render God unfaithful? Never. Identity…

FASTING

Fasting is a hebrew word anah which means to humble (Isaiah 58:1-5) or to afflict oneself. To humble oneself, one needs to come bare,broken and decreased before God. You come to seek God who only can clothe you in His righteousness, repair and elevate you. Fasting was a directive from God to the Israelites about their coming before Him. “Be careful to celebrate the Day of Atonement…Do no work during that entire day because it is the Day of Atonement, when offeringsof purifications are made for you, making you right…

LITTLE THINGS

“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” Hebrews 11:1. In as much as we trust God daily with faith leaping in bounds, life knocks us hard on the head to send us back into reality. And all reality serves us is the bitter truth of pain, lack, distress, solitude among others. Nonetheless, do not let your faith waver in any unpleasant situation life offers. And even in pleasant situations. Rahab was a prostitute who hid the…

NOTHING CAN EVER SEPARATE US FROM GOD’S LOVE

“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love.” Romans 8:38 NLT God is loving and merciful. His children will always find favor and mercy in His Holy presence. Self-love is now the new normal. It’s the therapeutic way of realizing your worth before others do. Children of God also undergo this therapy however, it doesn’t apply to the faith. Our only hope and refuge is Christ. He is our therapy in all situations. In the faith, that is, in following Christ, you deny yourself.  Your…

THE FIRST LOVE

“But I have this complaint against you.  You do not love me or each other as you did”. Revelation 2:4 NLT First love they say is very hard to forget. After all, they were the reason for the awakening of your love life. But this first love is not about that boy or girl. It’s all about the Lord Jesus Christ.

FAITH AS AN ACT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

  WHAT IS FAITH? Faith is getting right with what God says. Faith is believing in your heart that you are made right with God and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Faith comes from hearing that is, hearing the good news about Christ.   Over a few a months, I have come to realize that faith is believing God’s word and the perfection you can find in Him. Faith means getting right with God and this is feasible when you believe. But I will urge…

YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF GOD.

temple of God

  “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of God the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God and you are not your own?” 1 Corinthians 6:19, NKJV. When it comes to the Christian faith, the temple is very essential to both God and man.  It isn’t just a tent or a haven that God’s sovereignty is established but a place where He could be sought and be found. “For the Lord told him, ‘your son, whom I will place on your…

RECIPROCATING THE GREATER LOVE

“If you love me, obey my commandments.” John 14:15, NLT Reciprocity is one thing you should bear in mind when dealing with God. There is nothing ever earned without being worked for. The only thing that makes something productive out of our idleness is grace. Grace produces something for us out of our idleness because we have believed and grace is bestowed unto us. This very grace boosts the little efforts we put in any little thing we do. It is this grace that yields whatever we do in the…

THE BLOOD OF JESUS

It was a communion service for the month. I prayed and drunk the wine as instructed by the preacher (mom). I asked God that, “this wine which represents your blood, let it heal me as I drink it. Let the doctors scan my body and tell me the sickness is no more in my body.” I believed in the blood and what I had requested in the name of the precious blood shed for me on Calvary.  Two months later, I felt so uncomfortable and had the urge to go…
