Be Careful For Nothing




Give Faith It's Space





Get Understanding!!!!






*UNDERSTANDING IS KEY, IT IS THE FOUNTAIN OF LIFE, PROV 16 VS 22*

Always find a positive reason for peoples action first before condemning them, then can you have less issues.....

A wise man once told me that " 

Always give peoples wrong action a positive reason so you don't end up having too many enemies"

Jesus even at death still gave those who crucified Him an excuse for their action. He didn't take their character seriously,

He rather blamed it on ignorance, Luke 23 vs 34,

If only understanding would be put into our daily living, then the world would be a paradise.....

Benefits Of Understanding 

*Understanding brings happiness. You hardly get offended over peoples negative character.....( Prov 3 vs 13)

*Understanding keeps you acting in wisdom, it keeps your actions in check, you weigh peoples action before acting on it....... (Prov 10 vs 23)

*Understanding bridles your tongue. It keeps your utterances in check...... (Prov 11 vs 12)

*Understanding keeps your anger in check, it makes you slow to wrath..... ( Prov 14 vs 29)

Lack of understanding makes you act before thinking,
Lack of understanding exposes you to foolishness,
Lack of understanding brings anger and shame...

Add understanding today for a better living....

What The Churches Are Saying!



Here are some hilarious and wonderful messages the Churches are using as sign posts to bring in persons seeking for God into their Churches.

I am sure you would enjoy them

Have a great #Sunday




































 

Happy Sunday



 
All Glory be to God for His unquantifiable grace and mercy which He has extended to us irrespective of our status.

It is of His own grace and mercy that we are able to sleep off like the "dead" and then wake up again in the land of the living

All Glory must be returned to Him

And today, if you are a Christian, go to Church

Go worship Him in the Beauty of His Holiness and bow down before Him while proclaiming His glory

With songs of obedience and incense of lowliness, kneel and adore Him the Lord is His Name!!!!!

May His Name be praised for ever
And the People would say ---- Amen

God Is Good All The Time



God is good all the time and these are some pictorial representations of that saying.













 

Go To Church





Hello My Friends

I thank the Lord for His mercy and His grace which He has made abundant for us to draw upon and which has brought us back to the land of the living from that land where we knew not ourselves.

It's not who went to bed last night that woke up this morning
in the same token, it is not all who woke up this morning, who have all their faculties intact.
Some have taken ill and are being rushed to the hospital as I am writing;  some had bad dreams that they are so perplexed and confused; some have received a shocking news that has sent shock waves down their spines from which they are yet to recover

But for you and I, God has preserved us and protected us

Ought we not to be grateful to Him?

One way of showing Him your gratitude is to go to Church today if you are a Christian.

Even if you are Sunday - Sunday Christian, go to Church

The blessings that flow out a congregation praying together still cannot be quantified.

And as you do that today, may He continually look upon you with His deeply satisfying and unconditional love

Have a very pleasant Sunday

Is Attending Church Service Really Important?








As a child, I had no choice when it came to attending Sunday service because whether I liked it or yes, my Parents would ensure that I went to Church with my siblings and that was every blessed Sunday, whether it was raining cats and dogs or the Sun was beating sweat out of every person; the only thing that would make me not to go to Church with them on a Sunday was if I was on hospital admission and that was very very rare because my Mother took steps to ensure that we did not get sick.

However when I turned 18 and out of the House, I "revolted". I did not believe that attending Sunday service made me a better Christian than those who did not so I did not see it again as an obligation to be performed by me like a ritual.

I started attending Church services only for occasions like wedding, baptism, confirmation and the harvests and all that; most of the time though I would even go late.

Then something devastating happened to me (details next time) and took my faith with it. I did not go near any Church again, sometimes even talking about God was an issue because I wondered if He really existed, why did He allow that to happen to me?? you know all those questions that never really get answered!!!!

So for almost a year and some months, I would hang out on a Sunday morning with some "friends" doing stuff and sorts.

During the period I was in Egypt, one of my better friends used to come around and invite me for programs and all that in his Church, of course I never gave him my ears; at a point I asked him to stop coming around me; he never listened but kept coming and talking to me about Church.

One evening, he came again and asked me what I had against God and His Church, I told him that it was personal and that I did not wish to share it with anyone. He informed me that whatever it is or was, that there are other persons who have suffered worse fate but who know that God was always there for them and they have never kept away from coming to Church.

I allowed myself to be convinced, so the next Sunday, I followed him to his Church. He was quite happy about it, but I just went so as to help him have a testimony; it turned out that I was to be the one with the bigger testimony.

My Friend's Church have a time slotted for Members Testimonies in the course of the Service and so at the time appointed, members indicated and came forward to give the testimony of how good God had been to them.

One of the "testimonials" apparently dealt with my case, the man had recounted how he passed through the desert, went to Egypt, came out to Jericho and then God found him and brought him to Jerusalem.

I was lost for words because I had never shared my pains with anyone not even my Parents but someone was just recounting what I passed through and claiming them to be his own.

After the service, I sought him out and asked him if he really passed through all that; he gave my friend and I an appointment to meet up with him in his house and he would show us all the evidence. We did that and lo and behold he spoke the truth.

I was convinced beyond all other shades of opinion that God had actually spoken to me through that man's testimony and so I decided to pick myself up from where I was and to walk in God's Way and Will.

At 20, that which was devastating to me at 18, became a bowl of pounded yam which I demolished with a delicious plate of onugbu soup because this time, God's Hands were in it.

Since then, I have not looked back; I not only attend Church, I got involved in service in the Church from Guild of Stewards to People's Warden; I am a Patron of a number of Church Groups including the Anglican Youth Fellowship; I established a number of Church based Young Men's Christian Association; became a Life Member of the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship and today I have also been Knighted by the Lord Bishop of Ikeduru Anglican Diocese as a Knight of St. Christopher.

So, if I ask you that question, is going to Church really important? what will be your own answer?

For me, it is a capital YES

When you find yourself in the presence of God in the midst of His Congregation, you would know that irrespective of what you have passed through or currently passing through, you are not ALONE

Hope this message has spoken to someone

Have a great day
