A lil’ Kindness

Came upon this story this morning, and thought to share with you all;

“Knoxville airport all waiting to board planes:

I had the Bible on my lap and was very intent upon what I was doing. I’d had a marvelous morning with the Lord. I say that because I want to tell you it is a scary thing to have the Spirit of God really working in you. You could end up doing some things you never would have done otherwise. Life in the Spirit can be dangerous for a thousand reasons not the least of which is your ego…

To Be Like Jesus – Conclusion.

We all want to have our own way. All things must work out for our own way. We want everything, wealth, riches, abundant life, the good car, the beautiful wife, fantastic kids, vacation to Dubai, social status, want to be wanted, to be loved, celebrated….wanting to appear important. And I have no problem with all these! They are “noble” wants as they are!
But have you ever paused to ask, “What does God wants?” Continue reading

To Be Like Jesus

Several times, I have sat and thought long and hard over what to write. I have stories popping into my head and I try as hard as possible to see how I could flesh it up and be able to present it to my audience.
Most times, I just get a mental block and I abandon the idea. A dear friend told me probably I have too much on my mind and it’s not allowing the ideas to flow through. Maybe????

Recently, I had an experience in the office with a dear colleague and friend. I was listening to a song by Crystal Lewis, “I want to be like Jesus” and my Boss who incidentally is my Pastor stepped out of his office into my office. Continue reading

69 Truths You Will NEVER Hear About Roman Crucifixion!!!

1. Crucifixion was invented by the Persians in 300 BC, and perfected by the Romans in 100 BC.

2. It is the most painful death ever invented by man and is where we get our term “excruciating.”

3. It was reserved primarily for the most vicious of male criminals.

4. Jesus refused the anesthetic wine which was offered to Him by the Roman soldiers because of His promise in Matthew 26: 29, “But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”

Dear God,

Several times i sit and wonder, about the fragility of human allegiance. How often a times i wonder, God, why did you invent the word friend? Who truly is a friend? Who can you rely on? Who truly has your back covered?

You know God a times, i ask myself, if i feel this way, how do you feel, when we let you down, when we disappoint you and do things worthy of your instant anger and indignation. You are merciful of Lord, you are!

When people you look up to, show you they are not worthy to be looked up to… God what will you do?

When people preach a message, but they don’t live up to the message, what do you do o God?

When people you trust, make boast about how they can harness you, and you know within you, that if they see the unharnessed part of you, their lyrics will change, what will you do Lord?

What will you do, Lord, when you are trying to nurture, but the people you are to work together seems only interested in what profits them, what do you do Lord, what do you do??

When people honestly deceive themselves and choose to see what they choose to see and hear what they choose to hear, what do you do Lord?

Am reminded of Whitney Houston’s song, “I look to you” and all i can do is sing it along and meditate on your words, in Psalm 61:2.

Selah.

The Sinners of Mount Sinai

Came across this interesting article online and i find it very instructive and enlightening.

Happy Reading!

I was on AWOL (Away Without Official Leave) on this page in the last two weeks. My apologies. What caper was I up to? I had quietly slipped out of the country on a 12-day pilgrimage to holy sites in Israel. The trip took me to Jerusalem, Jericho, Galilee, Bethlehem, and then Egypt. Yes, the same Egypt, for that is home to Mount Sinai, the place where God handed out the Ten Commandments to Moses. Every Christian knows (or rather, should know) something about those ten laws, as they are quite fundamental to the faith.

A full account of the spiritual odyssey will come, but let me isolate what happened on the sixth day, as topic for discussion today.
On Tuesday last week, we had crossed the Taba land border from Israel to Egypt, after a rigorous and scrupulous security check. One knew the no love lost relationship between the two countries, and so it was not quite surprising. In Bible times, Egypt had held Israel in bondage for over 400 years, and in modern times, they’ve fought at least three bitter wars. So, naturally, there should be high level of distrust and suspicion between the two countries. Continue reading
