3 Things Deceiving You!

Almost everyone is conversant with the fall of Man and how it was caused by Eve eating a fruit and Adam following suit. However, before every action there is a layer of thought that has gone ahead to form the basis of that action. Almost every sin in the world can be traced to DECEPTION – the belief of false truths and before anyone can be deceived 3 things need to be in place. Continue reading “3 Things Deceiving You!”

Christian Works : Is it by works?

If you have been a Christian for at least a day, I am sure you have heard the popular, clichéd phrase – It’s not by works!

Aha! That one phrase that answers all questions, queries and complaints. If you ask a sister why she decided to sleep over at her boyfriend’s house last weekend; she will say “it’s not by works so don’t judge me”. If you ask someone why they haven’t attended church in a while – it’s not by works. Ask someone why they are repeatedly not fasting – it’s not by works oo.

Standing with God

Many times in life, when horrible things happen to us instead of facing the enemy and challenging him for laying hands on our stuff; we direct all our questions, anger and complaints to God allowing the devil go un-blamed.

I have friends, very close friends but you know it’s not the same as having that person that is just for you (winks), that person you know has your back no matter what, that person whose problem is to make sure you don’t have any problems (haha) Continue reading On Being Alone

Should We Give The FirstFruits Offering

Some weeks back, someone asked me a question – Should I give firstfruits?

I was raised in a Christian home and in a particular church that believed in giving of the First fruits offering and everyone who has told me about first fruits or asked about it as used this one scripture Proverbs 3:9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase (KJV). However, I haven’t heard anyone teach about the origin, basis and reason for this offering. I endeavour to do that today and with that answer the question above.

Last month, the study topic for the fellowship was The Book of John. We read and studied this gospel throughout the month and came together during TGIF to share our thoughts and lessons learnt.
