A Discontent Heart

Philippians 4:11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.

These words show us that contentment is not a natural propensity of man. “Ill weeds grow apace.” Covetousness, discontent, and murmuring are as natural to man as thorns are to the soil. We need not sow thistles and brambles; they come up naturally enough, because they are indigenous to earth: and so, we need not teach men to complain; they complain fast enough without any education.

Duty Or Pleasure

During our lifetime we perform many jobs.  As children we  dream of having a job that we will enjoy doing for rest of lives.  We run off to the universities and various institutions of higher learning in order to follow our dreams.  We spend whatever it takes so that duty will be our pleasure.  We … Continue reading

Truth or Lie

Is church today about the Gospel of Jesus Christ or self affirmation?  This question kept coming back to me since I finished reading the Book of Acts.  I’m now studying 1 Corinthians and again the state of the Gospel message within the church community arose.  So how much value do we place on Christ?  How … Continue reading

Rebirth

5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit[b] gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You[c] must be born again.’

Prayer for Integrity

I pray Lord God for biblical integrity amongst ministers. In that men of God would study and not just Google word topics, using one line scriptures out of context.  Doing so just because the word that they have focused on appears there.  I pray that ministers would no longer fear losing membership thus cutting their … Continue reading
