Everyone agrees that: Death ends each person’s existence on this earth! Yes, ALL without exception eventually die. No person knows when, where, and how he will die. Death cannot even be postponed. Once it is your turn, you must go.
The thought of death could be frightening if you do not know where you will be going. Some are forced to think about it after surviving a serious accident or at the death of a loved one. Many push the thought of death out of their mind until it is too late.

We may be faced with crisis or situations that threaten us at one time or another. We may be unable to avoid such an event or even do something about it.
How should we respond in such a time?
For even though we may not be able to do something, responding is a natural human instinct. We just feel we must do something even when we don’t know what.
The world faces a situation that threatens all of us right now. Virtually every country is prepared for the possibility of a conventional war Read more [...]
Today the world is engaged in a war with an enemy which neither plays to any known rules of engagement nor respects any borders. The enemy cannot even be seen with ordinary human eyes without the aid of powerful microscopes. But whether seen or not, its impact is being felt across the globe. This enemy is the pestilence named Coronavirus (Covid-19). Governments and institutions were neither prepared nor ready for it and so were caught napping. That alone ought to raise serious questions.

We know from our previous post, “How are you working out your own salvation?” that “working out your own salvation” does not mean that a person can earn his own salvation by doing some work. Rather salvation is by grace through faith.
But that “working out your own salvation” means the
believer in Christ aspires and strives to be Christ-like walking in obedience
according to the light he receives Read more [...]
Many believers take the fact that they are Christians for
granted. They think that being born again is all there is. They think that once
they are saved by the Lord Jesus Christ, that is it, the Holy Spirit will do
the rest. All they have to do is just relax and enjoy a wonderful ride to
heaven. They thus, do not make effort concerning their Christian faith as they
A major consequence of this lack of effort is ignorance of
the ways of God, and lack of advancement in their Christian character. Read more [...]
Humans are creatures of contrasts. We like to compare, and
contrast virtually every, and all things. Though believers are told,
“For we dare not make ourselves of
the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they
measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves amongst
themselves, are not wise.” (2Cor
We still do it anyway. The problem with us comparing
ourselves with others is that our standards are not consistent. We are always

beginning of a New year is for many Christians a time of thanking God. Some
section of the church even engage in what is commonly termed “cross-over”
service whereby they ensure that the New Year meets them within the church
precinct, never mind that such a one might have lived in disobedience to God
all year round, and same lifestyle of disobedience will continue immediately he
steps out of the church into the New year.
such thanks to God is for material things and so does Read more [...]
