I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. – C. S. Lewis
But let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight, declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 9:24, NIV)
Exercising kindness, justice and righteousness to others is the pleasure we give to God as His creature. Encourage someone today by showing him/her the love of God.
When we confess our sins to God, we are agreeing with God that we were wrong, that we have sinned. God forgives us, through confession, on an ongoing basis because of the fact that He is “faithful and just.” How is God “faithful and just”? He is faithful by forgiving sins, which He has promised to do for all those who receive Christ as Savior. He is just by applying Christ’s payment for our sins, recognizing that the sins have indeed been atoned for. John Owen
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9 ESV)
All of our sins are forgiven “positionally” the moment we receive Christ as Savior. This positional forgiveness guarantees our salvation and promise of an eternal home in heaven.
The Word of God is truthfully faithful, reliable and dependable. It is proven true and worthy in times of desperate needs and our darkest hours. You can take them to a bank and cash them. But you must believe. – Geraldine Vermaak
The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God who inspires the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.”(Revelation 22:6 NIV).
The word of God should be taken seriously. You should understand that it is capable of addressing every situation in your life. It should not be confined to the church premises alone but should be seen as a reliable tool that is capable of meeting all your needs at school, workplace or home.
Jesus reigns for the cause of the truth. This is quite different from what we experience today. The world system is full of lies, deceit, and corruption. It is shameful to say that there are those who are subjects of the King of kings in the setting where people celebrate lies and corruption.
“In your majesty ride forth victoriously in behalf of truth, humility and righteousness; let your right hand display awesome deed.” (Psalm 45:4, NIV).
People are reading you daily; let them see Jesus in you.
When any party ceases to contribute, the circle will be broken and leakages will be discovered.
Whatever you are enjoying today is someone else’s contribution.
Whatever you are lacking today is because someone who is suppose to contribute didn’t.
Don’t be that person, who because he refuses to contribute, causes leakages to the circle. Every person on earth is here to contribute to make the world a better place.
Contribution is the essence of living. You can contribute anything useful. *You can contribute in knowledge, in understanding, *in wisdom, in love, in peace, in resources, and in finances.* Also, You can contribute physically, spiritually, intellectually, financially, morally etc.
When you contribute, people will eat, when people contribute you will eat.
What is my contribution in that place that I am? What have you contributed to make progress? What is lacking as a result of your refusal to contribute? What is the way forward? The answer explains the scarcity or abundance in that place. Your presence is irrelevant if you have nothing to contribute.
In the organisation that you are, contribute. In the school, contribute. In the house, contribute. In the office, contribute. In the team, contribute. In the training , contribute In the community,contribute. In the family, contribute… In your street, contribute. Everywhere try and contribute… You have something to contribute: Contribute in Love… Instead of complaining, contribute. Instead of destructive criticism, contribute. Instead of being embittered, contribute. Instead of watching, contribute. Contribution is the right use of energy… Nobody destroys where he has contributed to build
THE WORLD WILL BE WORTH LIVING IF EVERYONE CONTRIBUTES MEANINGFULLY.
There are many people that run the race just because it is something to do.
You are running with a vision, going on a mission, or burning with a passion. If you do not belong to any of these, life is reduced to a burden. – Bishop David Oyedepo
“I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:20-21 NIV).

Handicaps can only disable us if we let them. This is true not only of physical challenges, but of emotional and intellectual ones as well. Real and lasting limitations are created in our minds, not our bodies. – Roger Crawford

God does not allow unregenerate sinners to do as they will… live as they please, and still go free. – Ben Mitchel
Thus saith the LORD unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the LORD doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins. (Jeremiah 14:10|KJV)
If God will reward you for good done, He will not overlook the sin that you refused to repent of too. All He wants is your genuine repentance. Can you now pray for repentance and commitment?
What we seem to be losing now cannot be compared to the reward that is prepared for us. What the wicked seem to be enjoying now should not entice us to join their sinful lifestyle.
At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the LORD. (Zephaniah 3:20|KJV)
Are you trying to change your stand because you think you cannot cope with the challenges you are facing now? Don’t do that. Hold on to the end.
Give it all to God: your past regrets, your present problems, your future ambitions, your fears, dreams, weaknesses, habits, hurts, and hang-ups. Put Jesus Christ in the driver’s seat of your life and take your hands off the steering wheel. Do not be afraid; nothing under His control can ever be out of control. – Rick Warren
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully” (1 Peter 5:7 AMP)
What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more’ … Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: ‘You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine. Friedrich Nietzsche
