The Empty Tomb

When ‘finding nothing’ becomes everything. ~Adams Allison~ Two old ladies were walking around a somewhat overcrowded English country church yard and came upon a tombstone. The inscription said: “Here lies John Smith, a politician and an honest man.” “Good heavens!” said one lady to the other. “Isn’t it awful that they had to put twoContinue reading “The Empty Tomb”

CHRONICLES OF THE KINGDOM: The Weight of the Crown

“With great power comes great responsibility.” ~William Lamb~ Rick Joyner often says that Christianity is the greatest adventure ever! It’s unfortunate though that that’s not the experience of many. I remember a colleague who professes to be Christian but drinks. When I asked him how he reconciles both his faith and his alcohol he saidContinue reading “CHRONICLES OF THE KINGDOM: The Weight of the Crown”

CHRONICLES OF THE KINGDOM: The Birthright

“At that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” ~Ephesians 2:12~ What drives NigeriansContinue reading “CHRONICLES OF THE KINGDOM: The Birthright”

Seeing Jesus in Every Page: The Sin Offering

“History is His-story.” ~Anonymous~ Over time in my walk with the Lord Jesus, I’ve come to realize that when He said, “the scriptures speak of me”, He meant it in more ways than we have previously anticipated. Very often we read the treasured scriptures as we would a magazine or a news paper, skimming throughContinue reading “Seeing Jesus in Every Page: The Sin Offering”

Hidden Treasures

“The Scripture is a box without hinges, keys, or lid, yet golden treasures are hid within.” ~Adams Allison~ The Bible, like a goldmine, is filled with precious truths. Sometimes Scripture is very clear about what it says, but sometimes we need to drill deep and do some excavation work ourselves (by the help of HisContinue reading “Hidden Treasures”

Living Ethically

“I don’t know which is more disturbing, that everyone has their price, or that their price is always so low?” ~Bill Watterson~ Is there a bench mark, is there a height mark beyond which all our moral values collapse? Do your principles have a price tag? Is there a point at which you will gladlyContinue reading “Living Ethically”

REDEMPTION – Extravagant Love

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” ~Jim Elliot~ When you think of the brave, and the courageous or the perfect adventure, what comes to mind? The American Navy Seals, the Spartan warriors or is it the ninjas and samurais of the Asian countries? NoContinue reading “REDEMPTION – Extravagant Love”

PURPOSE – The Choice is Yours

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space lies our freedom to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” ~Viktor Frankl~ A popular question people ask me when I talk about purpose is, Pharaoh! I’m often asked what choice Pharaoh had since it was God who hardened hisContinue reading “PURPOSE – The Choice is Yours”

PURPOSE – Destined for Honour and Glory

“God’s love is so real that He created you just so He can prove it.” ~Nick Vujicic~ This post flows from the last thought shared on my previous post about receiving a calling from God. And here I intend to touch on a very sensitive matter that springs from that thought – predestination. More challengingContinue reading “PURPOSE – Destined for Honour and Glory”

PURPOSE – The Power of Vision 2

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” ~King Solomon~ In the first part of this post, PURPOSE – The Power of Vision, I wrote about passion and talent. Today I want to continue and tell you about opportunities and calling.
