God for Us

by Omolola Oriogun

Let me share this testimony of a child of GOD with you to affirm Romans 8:28-31.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

A woman was on her way to Abuja by road. Continue reading

Does God Hear Me?

by Yewande Olamiju

Does God hear me when I pray? Is He disinterested in my prayers? Are my prayers relevant? Should I even bother praying? Does He talk to me?

The bible says:
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and His ears are attentive to their cry (Psa 34:15 NIV, 1 Pet 3:12)  

O Thou that hearest prayer (Psa 65:2) Continue reading

The Good Samaritan

culled from the sermon Divine Love & Prejudice by Pastor Afolabi Oladele

The parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10 is a story we heard as kids in C.R.K. Classes in Primary school or as we grew up in Sunday School. It ‘s always seemed like JUST-A-STORY/FAIRY TALE.

Luk 10:30-37 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.  Continue reading

X-raying the Potrait of the Recahabites: God’s Ancient Message to an Ultra-modern World Gone Wild

by God’s Icon
Growing up as a young child eager to learn from the bible, I grew up perplexed as to why God had allowed a scripture like this to be canonized into the Bible. Not because I found it irrelevant, but rather because I felt it looked like the Lord was “leading them into temptation” or for better words it sounded like God was tempting them using His renowned servant the prophet Jeremiah and also bringing them into His temple where no sin (e.g. lies in this case) was permitted.

When It seems Like The Wicked Are Prospering, It’s time for Reflection

by Miss Mo

It had been a couple of those kinds of months; you know those ones where despite your best efforts nothing seems to be going right. So of course you start to self-examine and then comparisons between you and others start coming up. You think to yourself “but I’ve been doing almost everything right, at least all the big stuff that really matter anyway and I’ve been dedicated.” Then thoughts about other people start creeping in, you start to look at your friends and acquaintances and start to scrutinize and become a judge over their lives.

When Success Happens to Someone Else

highlights of a sermon by Pastor Afolabi Oladele

Have you been tempted to stage your own palace coup in the corners of your home or office? Are you willing to give up your own personal ambition, like Jonathan did, for a higher calling? Are you willing to accept a calling that could mean sitting on the bench? Are you willing to accept what might involve behind the scenes work that goes unnoticed?

Sometimes some of us have to sit on the bench and it’s not because we can’t play centre forward, but the Coach (GOD) decides who plays centre forward and who sits on the bench. I Corinthians 12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

7 Abominations – Prov 6:16-19

by Yewande Olamiju

These six things the Lord hates,Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren (Prov 6:16-19)

1. A proud look
The bible describes a proud look as a spirit that makes one overestimate himself and underestimate others. (Prov 6:17 AMP). Are you complacently pleased with yourself over your moral performance, looking down your nose at the common people? (Luk 18:9 MSG). Continue reading
