Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?” (Galatians 3:1).   Lesson: Believers must understand that Christianity requires steadfastness. The religion is free but it does not accommodate unfiltered practices. Whoever wants to serve God should do so with full devotion. Christians must not...Read more

The bible declares, “Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16).

Israelites provoked God with sin, and the Creator promised to make them pay for it. Amos the servant of God prophesied, “And it shall come to pass in that day,” says the Lord God, “That I will make the sun go down at noon, And I will darken the earth in broad daylight; I will turn your feasts into mourning, And all your songs into lamentation; I will bring sackcloth on every waist, And baldness on every head; I will make it like mourning for an only son, and its end like a bitter day” (Amos...Read more

Christians must be watchful of deceptive teachers that camouflage to exploit people for their selfish gains. Some teachers and teachings that are not consistent with bible are out there, and believers must be watchful not to become their victims. Apostle Paul had a similar warning for Galatians’ church when he stated, “I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and...Read more

God warned Israelites to stop pretense but walk uprightly before him so that they can prosper. The Creator accused Israelites of attempting to bribe him with their fat offerings while they continue to live in sin. God insisted that his children must live up to his standard, or else they should pocket their gifts! Israelites must prioritize righteousness above their generous offering.

Israelites provoked God to an extent that he decided to keep record of their sins and promised to punish them. Israelites lacked godly fear and were brutal to their neighbors. God promised them a severe punishment as the bible recorded, “Thus says the Lord: “For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, because they sell the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of sandals” (Amos 2:6).   Lesson: God who is a merciful God also keeps record...Read more

Among the host of other people who faithfully served God in the bible, Abraham, Noah, Moses, and David are arguably the greatest; however, none of these people come close to being characterized as the greatest when compared with Jesus Christ. All bible characters, except Jesus Christ experienced body corruption through death. Jesus died but his body did not see corruption; he resurrected on the third day. The scripture testified, “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will...Read more
