Looking up to God.

Hurry with your answer, God ! I’m nearly at the end of my rope. Don’t turn away; don’t ignore me! That would be certain death. If you wake me each morning with the sound of your loving voice, I’ll go to sleep each night trusting in you. Point out the road I must travel; I’m all ears, all eyes before you. Save me from my enemies, God — you’re my only hope! Teach me how to live to please you, because you’re my God. Lead me by your blessed Spirit into cleared and level pastureland.

Psalm 143:10 MSG

Message Of The Day: August 15th, 2017.

​Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.

Philippians 1:6 MSG

Truest Love 

We live in a society where we have Hollywood and the entertainment world dictate and premiere the definition of love to us. 

According to most entertainment work, love is displayed or portrayed as an ‘uncontrollable feeling and lust towards someone’. This is nothing but Lust.

The truest love can only be found in God’s definition and action. It’s not based on feelings and affections but action.

John 3:16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”, this is the genesis and pinnacle of love. 

Following God’s pattern of loving is a duty to give ourselves to caring for everyone irrespective of religion, nationality, race and sexuality.

You love because you have been loved by Jesus (1 John 4:19).

The Good Law Can’t Save 

When you ask an average person what does Christianity really entails? There response is often: “it’s a belief system based on rules and regulations that makes you good and empowers you to do good”.

The first thing to establish is the true meaning and understanding of Christianity. Is it about living a life based on a set of rules and regulations called the Law, which leads to “legalism”? Or life apart from the Law, which leads “licentiousness”?

The law shows our imperfections and sin, but it’s powerless to save us from sin and imperfections. In fact the Law is the strength of sin (1 Corinthians 15:56). 

Does this make the law evil? Absolutely not, the law itself is awesome (Romans 7:7-12) because it help us to keep ourselves from potential harm or danger that would have ruined our lives.

If obeying or observing the Law can’t grant me righteousness or salvation, what then can save me? 

Galatians 2:21 tells us that if righteousness (right standing with God) can be obtained through obeying or observing the Law, then Jesus died for nothing. Ephesians 2:8 informs us that we’re saved by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus alone.

Therefore our righteousness, holiness, perfection, redemption and salvation is solely found in the person and work of Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:30-31).

Don’t expect your perfection from any Law but from Jesus alone.

No More Fear


We live in a world that’s full of chaos economically, socially, morally and even spiritually.

The more people set their mind on the things that they see with their physical eyes, the more fear and worry creep into their lives stealing their joy and hope.

How do we overcome fear in our world?

The secret to overcoming our fear, we have set our eyes on things not seen (physical, economical and social) but on the Lord Jesus.

Jesus told us in John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Therefore, all we need to do as believers is to put our trust in Jesus even when our fear overwhelms us. Why? Jesus is in control.

Trust in God. Trust in Jesus (John 14:1).

Living From Approval

I have lived a life of great challenges from my cradle up to this day. My story has been plagued with rejection, addiction, low self-esteem and many more.
My addiction to pornography almost ruined everything I have;  my job, career, relationship with people and communion with God. But God never left me to myself, he sought after me,  he drew me close to himself and he brought me to the hill where my sin, guilt, shame and reproach were nailed to the body of Christ Jesus.

Jeremiah 1:5 ““Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

The above passage of the scriptures gave me a wonderful hope of the future, it also tells me that I don’t need people’s approval for achieving great things in life.  

Your life and hope should be centred on the fact that you’ve been loved and approved by God.

Isaiah 53:5 “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed”. 

This is another confirmation of the beautiful work Jesus Christ did for humanity. No matter how dreadful and grave the situation, pain, difficulties, addiction and sicknesses, Jesus has bought the healing, strength and recovery with his blood that was shed on the Cross.

BEGIN TO LIVE FROM GOD’S APPROVAL OF YOU.

To put your trust in Jesus means accepting his free gift of salvation that brings eternal life.
