True Love Is Essential To Christianity

True Love Is Essential To Christianity

  True love reigns! Christianity is rooted in God’s love, and every Christian must demonstrate it sincerely to satisfy our Maker.   Paul explained the necessity of God’s love to Christians as quoted,   “If I gave everything I have to poor people, and if I were burned alive for preaching the Gospel but didn’t love others, it would be of no value whatever. Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud ” (1 Corinthians 13:3-4 TLB). Christians Must Allow True Love To Reign   True and thorough love of God (Genuine love) must be paramount among Christians. We must love other people dearly. Each believer must understand that nothing is more significant to God than an expression of genuine love towards him, and towards other people.   Jesus Christ declares, “Love the Lord your God with all your...Read more
Christian Body Will Stay Strong With Love

Christian Body Will Stay Strong With Love

Followers of Jesus Christ (Christians) are called to operate in love. We must care for one another – without iota of selfishness so that God can be glorified in all ramifications. Bible promotes unity of brethren as quoted, “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching (Hebrews 10:25 NJKV)” Christians’ togetherness will yield much fruits for God’s kingdom. Paul admonished Christians at Corinth to shun selfishness but work together as a team for the purpose of glorifying God. Believers’ love will lead to promotion of gospel; it will motivate unbelievers to come closer and find a reason to serve God. Paul chastised Corinthians brethren, “Therefore when you come together in one place, it is not to eat the Lords Supper. For in eating,...Read more

Jesus Is The Permanent Solution to The World Crises

God revealed to Prophet Isaiah a permanent solution to world crises. While people dilly-dally about God’s law, prophet Isaiah unfolded God’s plan and said, “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel” (Isaiah 7:14).

People who call his name and believe would receive the gift of eternal life.

Dare to Be Different: Serve God In Righteousness

Dare to Be Different: Serve God In Righteousness

Serve God and reap reward. King Jotham reigned when the act of wickedness was persistent in the land of Judah; however, the king chose not to follow the footsteps of the wicked kings that preceded him. Jotham served God well in righteousness, and since he was so different, God honored him specially. God helped Jotham to be exceptionally great among other kings in his region. The scripture reported, “He built the upper gate of the house of the Lord, and he built extensively the wall of Ophel. Moreover, he built cities in the hill country of Judah, and he built fortresses and towers on the wooded hills. He fought also with the king of the Ammonites and prevailed over them so that the Ammonites gave him during that year one hundred talents of silver, ten thousand kors of wheat and ten thousand of barley. The Ammonites also paid him this amount in...Read more

Benediction and Mutual Love Among Brethren

Paul shared benediction with the church at Corinth as he concluded his admonishing letter. Paul said, “Finally, brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss (purely based on culture and nothing more!) All the saints greet you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen” (2 Corinthians 13:11-14). On Benediction and Mutual Love Among Brethren Christ-centered church must enjoy communion of the Holy Spirit; the body of Christ ought to also enjoy mutual love among the members. Since Christ is the head of the church, people who partake in the fellowship should enjoy benefits that include, but are not limited to, peace, protection, and prosperity of the Lord. God...Read more
The Consequences of Sin and Blessing of Obedience

The Consequences of Sin and Blessing of Obedience

God requires obedience from his people. He put people of Judah to task by asking them provocative questions. In a metaphorical statement, God challenged Judah inhabitants to consider what the consequences of their sinful actions are. God said,   “Now let me sing to my Well-beloved a song of my beloved regarding His vineyard: My Well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, and also made a winepress in it; so He expected it to bring forth good grapes, But it brought forth wild grapes. “And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, Judge, please, between Me and My vineyard. What more could have been done to my vineyard that I have not done in it? Why then, when I expected it to bring...Read more
