The Chain reaction of Salvation

Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus (John 1:35–37). We see that when John opened his mouth about Jesus Christ, two people who heard him speak followed the Lord. We must open our mouths about the Lamb of God if we want people to follow Him. When we consider the next occurence in John 1:40–42, One of the two who heard John speak,…

Inquire of the Lord

1 Samuel 30:8 And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them?

After grieving and strengthening himself in the Lord, here is what he did, So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue,…

Deny yourself, Take up your cross and Follow Jesus Christ

Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me. Following Jesus Christ entails a total readiness to do His will in all aspects. It is a decision that angers Satan because he knows that he stands to be exorcised  and all that he represents. By this singular decision to repress his will power and to set his spiritual baggages to ruin, he would want to implore all possible means to run down…

Pruning the branches to bear fruits in love

John 15:2 Every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it, that it may bear more fruit. Our goal is to abide in Christ and to bear fruit. Jesus Christ promised that if we abide in Him, we will bear much fruit (John 15:5). In subsequent verses, we are going to see that we are pruned rather to show love inorder to bear much fruits in our abiding in the Vine (Jesus Christ). John 15:2-6 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth…

God’s Eternal Constant Love

1 John 3:1   See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God It’s indeed a great privilege we have received from God to be called his children, in other words, it’s not something that should be taken likely as we must reciprocate the love back to Him. However, sometimes in our walk with God, you could feel that that God is ready to give up on you because, instead of walking confidently in faith, you sometimes stumble and fall. Do…

Take hold of God’s promises

The Word of God is packed-full of his promises for us, the Bible is the ultimate source for truth and God is faithful to fulfill all His promises in our lives. Isaiah 41:13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. Upon this, we base our minds knowing that we have a Helper(God), who has promised to lead us as he holds our right hand and so we need not fear as he has promised to help us.…

Nothing is impossible with God

Luke 1:38 Behold, the bondslave of the Lord; be it done to me according to your word The word of God is the standard for a child of God in which whatever that needs to be done can be done. When the disciples of Jesus Christ asked him that who then can be saved after Jesus Christ told them that it is easier for the head of a carmel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God, then…

The promise of Eternal life

The existing life here on earth journeys into eternal life and that has always been the concerns of most persons in the world, which has always left the ‘big question’ which is, where are are you going to spending your eternity? So far in the Scriptures, only two places of eternity have been shown to us which are Heaven and Hell.

The power in the truth

John 3:21 He who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God. Satan’s first and foremost strategy is deception. As long as Satan’s influence in a person’s life remains undetected, he is content to lie low and not show his hand. Like a snake in the grass, he quietly sneaks up on his prey and squeezes the life out of it. But when you confront Satan’s deception and expose his lies with the truth, his strategy changes from stealth…
