ALLELUIA! THE LORD IS RISEN

Welcome viewer. Thank you for visiting. I hope you will like and comment on my posts.

When Jesus was tried, tortured and crucified unjustly, he did not suffer and die in vain. His suffering was for sinful humanity, who should have suffered and died for their transgressions. By his death and resurrection in obedience to his father’s will, redeemed mankind from slavery of the devil because of our personal sins.

Jesus Christ was raised up as Lord of all and master of life and death by conquering death through his own power in his resurrection. He set us free and gave us the life of grace.

The passion of Christ towards us was giving up His life for us and saving us from spiritual death. Our opportunity as believers is to burn with passion for God and be continually aflame for God.

As we celebrate the mystery of our Lords Resurrection, let us bear in mind that our passion towards one another should be rendering humble service to one another. We need to  put on Christ because in Him the interior human being is renewed and the old reality, is broken to open up the way for the birth of the new human reality, the fruit of redemption in Christ. Wishing  you all a happy Easter. I love you all and God bless you!.

What is Love?

Welcome viewer, thank you for visiting. I hope you will like and comment on my posts.

One of my favourite sayings is,” True love is when you touch someone with your spirit ,and in return they touch your soul with their heart”. I like to believe that love is a reciprocal thing ,it is true. Life works more perfectly when a reciprocal relationship flows from God to man, from man to God and from man to his neighbour.

In 1 Samuel 20: 17-23, the story of David and Jonathan forms a very good example where love is seen to be an inner force which moves us to perform the action which gives us pleasure or impels us to self-sacrifice, for the good of the loved one and unshaken loyalty. Love is the greatest and an everlasting virtue which we cannot live without.

According to the Holy Bible, 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 says, “Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way, it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things; love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease as for knowledge, it will come to an end.

Undeniably, Gods love for us is steadfast. Hosea presented God as the God of love devoted to the well-being of his chosen people in Hosea 11:4. Love is a fruit of the Holy spirit. When I use the word fruit, I am referring to the normal result of the Holy spirit growth and presence in a Christians life. This fruit of love changes our life and makes us more like Christ.

However, God’s word in Deuteronomy 6:5  commanded us to love God with all our heart, soul and might. His  word in Matthew 22:37 also instructed us to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Finally, I urge you to love God and your neighbor as we were ordered. When you love without limit for Christ’s sake, Gods love will flow from man to his neighbor  and from man to God, and his Holy Spirit will then bears fruits in our lives, changing us and making us more like Christ. I love you all and God bless you!

SHARE GOD’S LOVE

Welcome viewer,thanks for visiting. l hope you will like and comment on my post.

For Christians, love means making up one’s mind in Christ to work for the good of souls, without discrimination of any kind; trying to obtain for them the good of knowing Christ and falling in love with him.

God demonstrated his own love towards us , in that while we were still sinners ,he died for us (Romans 5:8). God’s love for us flows without limit. The love of God and fellow man is the greatest law from which there is never an exception. Christ who came to save all mankind wanted to teach us how to love one another in the same way as he loves each one of us. Only by imitating the divine pattern he has left us, not withstanding our sinful ways, will we be able to open our hearts to all men and love in a totally new way.

The love that ought to exist amongst us Christians is born of God. So let us love one another.We need to examine ourselves in so many activities we do each day and observe if our hearts respond as it should to the promptings of God. If not, we have to retrace our steps and put things right. Charity towards our neighbour is an expression of our love of God.

The absence of a continuous and intense, person-to-person relationship with our lord Jesus Christ, and an ignorance of the work of the holy spirit in the soul is a hindrance to the practice of charity.

Finally, as Valentine’s Day is celebrated worldwide today, let us not neglect Christ out of concern for worldly affair but turn our gaze constantly to Jesus Christ. We need to devout ourselves and all our energies to the service of others loving without measure like Christ and winning souls with love through Christ. We must in strength and humility meet hate with love.I wish you all a happy Valentine’s Day!. Share God’s love and God bless you.

ACTS OF PHILANTHROPY

Welcome viewer,thanks for visiting.I hope you will like and comment on  my posts.

Your philanthropies are as good as gold, as ageless and liberal as the sun. They are your stepping stones towards Heaven .

One of the definitions of philanthropy in Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary is “An act or gift done or made for humanitarian purposes.” Interesting isn’t it? This definition makes a clear distinction. It implies that philanthropy is anything done or given to promote human welfare, that is ,making life more meaningful for others. In our act of philanthropy the well being of mankind throughout the world are improved such as the growth and development of many towns and cities, saving of lives, alleviation of sufferings, feeding of the hungry, and  elimination of diseases.

The fact that God met our need for salvation by sending his only beloved son to die a painful death in our place is philanthropy. Andrew Carnegie donating money to build over 2500 libraries to benefit others worldwide was philanthropy. A brother donating his kidney for free to benefit a dying patient suffering from kidney failure is philanthropy. Booker T. Washington in his popular quote has said, “if you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.” It’s true. Life is give and get. Nothing will hinder or handicap you in life as severely as selfishness.

Individually, our problems are manifold and would never be solved by one person. Sometimes as life becomes more hectic and challenging, you may find yourself exhibiting selfishness and callosity towards the needy. As I delve into the real reason why people give when supporting a cause, found out that people give for any of the following reasons, to make a positive impact in the world, to show appreciation for what have been done for them, to gain recognition, for personal benefits, and the rest on impulse.

However, when you provide for other peoples need expecting nothing in return, it brings about meaning, value, and fulfilment in your own life. This act is remembered in the sight of God and  Its benefits are as countless as the stars. Dear friend, giving is not all about money but about time, attention, encouragement, property, and work to others. Your good deeds affects your relationship with God and others positively bringing you to perfection. They also influence others lives positively and will promulgate the gospel of Jesus Christ, permeate happiness in your life and in the lives of the needy. It will also determine the measure that God will give back to you( Luke 6:38).Giving purges  away your sins and you will have treasures in heaven( Luke 2:33)

Moreover, not giving for the  cause of the needy will result in living an  unfulfilled life. This will affect your relationship with God and others negatively. Such an impolitic action like that will bring you to the nadir or lowest level of imperfection.

But can you give selflessly expecting nothing in return? Sure. You can do whatever you need to do in life through Christ. In the book of Matthew 25:40 God says,” —Amen I say to you, whatever you did for one  of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”What a great scripture! It tells us that our generosity to the poor is remembered by God. The Zenith or highest level of charity in Jewish tradition is helping someone to become sufficient.

Finally, It is requisite to teach and emulate the virtue of philanthropy in our schools, families, and societies to create awareness and encourage those who are not already involved to throw themselves into volunteer and charity work. World philanthropy day is celebrated yearly on 15 November to acknowledge the effort of those who already worked to help their fellow humans. As we progress beyond Good works, let us not backslide for God loves a cheerful giver. To great and honourable philanthropists of our time I say, “Heaven awaits you !” I love you all and God bless you.Amen.

PURPOSEFUL LIFE

Welcome viewer,thanks for visiting.I hope you will like and comment on my posts.

Friends, you were created for a purpose. What task were you called to fulfil to give meaning to your life? What task were you called to fulfil through the image of Christ to reveal his love, grace, kindness through you to the world?

One of the most valuable relationship you can ever have is a personal relationship with God. This link makes time spent with God a priority and only in God will you find true purpose of life.

In the Holy Bible, Job stood out as one who knew the purpose of life. He saw everything that happened to him as an act of God and resigned to fate. Job was finally exonerated and restored.

Do you know your true life’s purpose? In daily life it is not always simple to find out what ones call is. Resisting Gods will and our wanton disregard for Gods will preclude knowing our life purpose. Similarly , we need to resign to Gods will like Job, to be able to find our life purpose.

The purpose of our life here on earth is not primarily about acquiring possessions, attaining status, achieving success or experiencing happiness. Those are secondary issues. God works implicitly through our inclinations, natural abilities, friends, parents, educators and church affiliation. It is a fact that God can use you or me to fulfil his purpose, there is a time for every purpose and work on earth and Gods purpose must be fulfilled and nothing can annul it.

We always find in our circumstances something to cavil about, especially when our plans fail, not knowing that sometimes your plans have to fail for Gods purpose to prevail.

However, God invites us to live a meaningful life of dedication to his calling. All of us must be faithful to our call in life for the sake of Gods reign.

Finally, to be faithful to our call as Christians ,we must live a morally responsible life since we are members of Christ and a temple of the holy spirit. Only a purposeful life can impart lasting happiness. I love you all and God bless you.Amen.

 

ONE WITH GOD IS MAJORITY

Image result for my stand with God

Welcome viewer,thanks for visiting.I hope you will like and comment on my posts.

It is either we are for God or against Him. Often times, the way we live our lives as  a Christian show our stand with God. But the question is “Are you for God or against God? According to the gospel of John 1:12-13,those who are for God have been given power to become children of God because they have received him , believed in his name, and do his will. Furthermore, as children of God, he sent the spirit of his son into our hearts.

Those who are against God do the will of the flesh and the will of  man. Are you for God or against God and still wallowing in the darkness of anger, adultery, fornication, stealing, murder, lies, jealousy and all sorts of abominable deeds of the flesh? Are these deeds the will of God or the will of the flesh?

Definitely, they are not the will of God but the will of your flesh. According to 1 Peter 2:11,When we live in the flesh it war against our soul. According to Romans 7:25,the flesh makes us slaves of uncleanness and makes us serve the law of sin instead of Gods law.

According to 1 John 2:16,everything in this world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the father but is of the world.

As we get ready to celebrate the birth of the Christ child, let us take our stand with God and renew our minds, living according to God in the spirit. Nothing Good comes from our flesh. Rather our sinful passions which were aroused by the law of sin  bears deadly fruit in us.

I encourage you to accept God into your life, believe in him and obey the laws of God because one with God is majority. Only then will he send the powerful spirit of his son into your heart. I love you all and God bless you.Amen.

 

I WISH YOU A MERRY XMAS AND  PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!
