“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the day approachingHebrews 10:24-25”
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven
Matthew 5:14-16 KJV”
Growing spiritually can be a little bit of a challenge because most times, the flesh wants to enjoy worldliness. To grow spiritually means to know Jesus more and more and to become more like Him; having the full knowledge of who He is and who we are in Him.
Have you come across people who make you feel that what you believe in does not make sense? Everyone is entitled to their opinion and their beliefs too so you…
Do you pay attention to what you listen to?
“TV, movies, games and books are much like food – for your mind and soul”
Often times, I’d hear “be careful what you listen to and watch”, “be careful what your mind feeds on”. I knew it was true that what you listen to or watch could have effect on your mind but I never took it to heart.
I have heard that watching violent movies can make you violent or listening to music about violence, drugs, music that degrade women and even those that use profanity can have a negative effect on you. Always, I’d wonder how that is even possible. You know yourself, you know you can’t be violent, you know you respect women
Faith and fear is something that goes hand in hand. It’s either you are living in faith or you are living in fear.
Have you ever expected something to happen and you know it’ll happen because you have calculated how it could happen and probably there’s still time? Is that faith or logical reasoning? Ok, let me explain more, perhaps
Often times, I hear people say they are not ready to give their lives to Christ because it means their lifestyle would change and that would be boring. That’s true, your lifestyle would definitely have to change but there is liberty in Christ.
When people are told to give their lives to Christ, they do that out of fear, the fear of going to hell if they don’t change their ways. Sometimes this fear makes them so much bound to obeying the laws of God by their own strength and
We sometimes make the statement “I don’t care what people say about me” and the likes but is that true? I myself have said that often and even did a post on it. There’s no doubt that saying such helps and is liberating, it actually did help me. However, the truth is we care about what people say. Let’s admit it. What we actually do is we try as much as possible to not make what people think about us matter or get to us.
Every morning on my way to work, I see how some people drive on the streets and most times I’m like, if I drive, I will just be slowing down anyhow and I might just cause an accident. Even before I reached the age of driving, I’ve always been scared of driving. It’s amazing how people could manoeuvre through tight corners
Yesterday, I woke up with a heavy heart. I was thinking about a lot of things, including past mistakes and decisions I have to make. I felt like running away from all that bothered me but that of course wasn’t possible. All these were in my mind, even up until noon and sometimes I almost felt like crying (you know those times when you want to cry but you tell yourself, no, you can’t cry naw). All I could ask God was to help me, give me peace, that’s all I was saying.
