LIFE

Life is fragile, Handle it in prayer. Prayer is to the soul As breathing is to the living; Much prayer much power, Little prayer little power, No prayer no power.   We can never give much For Him who sacrificed all. Every temptation, An opportunity to run to God. He will never withhold anything, Beneficial to you. Trust in Him always.   God’s love is like a stream, Which withstands seasons, A fountain that never runs dry, And a sun that never sets. His love is limitless. Abide in him, And he......

THE BRIGHT LIGHT

Far beneath the mountains Glee a huge golden plantain Beautiful she is like bonny lass In melodies and coo of merry of the dawn The tiny twilights and the stars go home As the queen shies away Dice in size she dims Her way to go home too The queen has traced out her dark kingdom It is day time The cock crows The king reins and the heat races high It is noon and the climax of his prowess But a war is being bred Slowly the clouds take over the......

EFFECTIVE EVANGELISM

EFFECTIVE EVANGELISM Acts 17:16-34 In Athens, Paul spoke out of his distress at the sight of a city of idols. He decided to reason with the Jews and the God-fearing Greeks in the synagogue and even in the market places concerning this matter. A lot can be learnt from Paul through his communication with the Athenians who were hostile and antagonistic. We are sensitized on what we use in evangelism. These may include: voice, eloquence and knowledge. Shouting loud neither guarantees compensation of the truth nor communicates what is to be driven......

PRAYING GOD'S WILL AND SEEING CHANGE

PRAYING GOD’S WILL AND SEEING CHANGE “It’s KAIROS!!!”…“Yes, it’s KAIROS!!!”  is a mantra chanted year in year out by church members and students taking the Kairos course- a mission mobilization course. The Compass Bible study guide acts as follow up activity after the course. As we went through the study guide, we came across an indelibly insightful article by Titus H. titled “Praying God’s will and Seeing Change”. This we have decided to share for many to read.   “Jesus commissioned His followers to “make disciples of all nations,” and gave them......

YOU CAN BE DIFFERENT

YOU CAN BE DIFFERENT This is to someone who may be losing hope; one who thinks that there is nothing else they can do to change their current situation. Life’s overwhelming odds do scare people; sometimes making them cower and do nothing at all;  to respond to some situations. With many heart-breaking and spirit-maiming happenings, it is much easy to forget that God is still with us. Many a times we encounter storms. When beaten and swirled in the boat, we think we are finished! We labor on our own to rescue......

SERVING IN THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

SERVING IN THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. It was on Tuesday, 11th October 2016, before leaving for the Evangelism Committee meeting. One of the CU’s Executive Committee member broke the news to me that I had been nominated as the next Bible Study and Training Coordinator. This meant that I would serve in the subsequent Executive Committee. It was a great shock to me for I hadn’t foreseen it. I was at loss for words so he let me go think over and pray about it. The Executive Committee, commonly referred to as the......

Divorce - a message to the unmarried

Divorce – a message to the unmarried   Recently, I found myself in a deliberation to pray with a friend over a friend of theirs who was in a fix of whether to remarry after a divorce. I not only prayed but also read the Scripture concerning the matter. An understanding has always been there. The word is the sword of the Spirit. You may read it today and not find a meaningful use of it in the now, but in the fullness of time like a swordsman draws his sword when......

The Suicidal Route- of STGs and STJs

The suicidal route- of STGs and STJs Although gone, the memory of you-my little sister- remains vivid. Having bid goodbye the first two thirds of the 8.4.4 system, the university lay in wait. Anxious, as anyone else could be, we joined the university village-fresh. City life, which had been a dream, was now a reality. We had a good time to explore. Countless times we were stranded in town with the National Archives serving as a point mark back to campus. With the first Friday night, came two invites; freshmen’s party and......

Where Do You Belong?

Where Do You Belong? The two-fold nature of life is amazing. The idea of light or darkness, right or left, right or wrong, are ideas championed by man. God molded and commanded all things in a mighty way and instituted a coherent distinction between them. This gives us a freedom of choice and thought. How would it feel to have no choices on things you do? Probably, you would not have the capacity to change your diet, direction of movement or any other aspect of life. For instance, do you choose the......

THE VALUE OF HUMANITY

THE VALUE OF HUMANITY   There is a TRUTH, a truth irrelevant to ignore. From the beginning, God gave life. Yes, He gave life to humanity and for every wonderfully made creature. Life is as institutionalized by God as the family of progression by man. It is a continuous process consolidated by nature and agreeably unopposed by it. Among all the things created by God and entitled as viable, human being is identified as the highest order in that category. Life is ordained by God. It can also be viewed as a......

AUTHENTICITY IN THE PUBLIC;The Church Today

  AUTHENTICITY IN THE PUBLIC; The Church Today I have always loved watching my fellow Christians go about their life. However, it becomes a concern (to me) and a temptation (to the receiving end) when what is done in public has been and is being used to define one’s maturity in faith. Here, we start missing the mark. One of the detrimental factors that are producing Christians who are zealous but not fruitful is, public-orientation. The church today is producing renowned Christian leaders whose sincere personal walk with God, if openly evaluated,......

The Convenience Christianity

For generations since the death and the resurrection of our lord and savior Jesus Christ, many have come into saving faith. The truth of the gospel of salvation has brought many into a relationship with God. This birthing of evangelization and missionary work has been marred by persecution and sacrificial lives of men and women who treasured Christ more than life. However, with the establishment of buildings, which I am not opposed to, there has being increased comfort and luxury in many Christians. Making more of Christ was replaced with some convenience......

PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT

When you hear about praying in the Spirit, what comes in your mind? This subject of praying in the Spirit has attracted a lot of concern especially in our Christian Unions and a number of brethren and today, I prayed for God to give me some insight about it. Many of us think that praying in the Spirit is “constrained” to the gift of speaking in other tongues, today; I bring us an in-depth perspective. It’s praying “IN” Spirit, right? Let me begin with this conjunction “IN”, It can mean “by the means of,......
