POWER VERSUS AUTHORITY

345/365 There are two words we come across in scripture a fair bit, particularly in the New Testament- Power and Authority. In many instances, they may appear interchangeable in their use but in context, they are linked concepts that portray specific dimensions when in execution. Thus, clarity in their distinction is helpful to our Christian... Continue Reading →

MINIBITES

343/365 I had some learning from an event this morning, and share those three lessons: Don't become too confident with what you have and what you know that you stop learning and growing. That is pride, because it raises you to the point where you think you have attained and have nothing more to gain.... Continue Reading →

ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH

336/365 Matthew  9:29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. God is able to do all things and with Him, nothing is impossible.

IT TAKES MORE THAN DESIRE

298/365 Luke 13:24 Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.

FRUITS ARE EXPECTED

294/365 It becomes apparent with the use of 'leave it this year also (Luke 13:8) ' that the vine dresser for 3 consecutive years, had been having the same conversation with the owner of the vineyard year after year. He just about succeeded in negotiating an extension for a fourth year in a row. Nonetheless,... Continue Reading →

We might think it would provide the appropriate exemption from punishment or consequences of action but in the eyes of the law, not knowing does not exempt you from the consequences that follow. A classic... Continue Reading →

A LITTLE BIT EXTRA

238/365 Reference text: Matthew 25:1-13 Today's text for reflection is the parable of the ten virgins. The key points of interest for our discourse are as follows: Ten virgins received the same opportunity: an invitation to be part of a wedding celebration (25vs 1)They had the same preparatory time and also a faced the same...

WE ARE VIABLE SEED

We ARE VIABLE SEED Jesus was on a broadcast to clear the air. He had been referred to as the Prince of Demons, an accolade he swiftly moved to disassociate from. Thus, when asked to explain the parable of the weeds, in straight forward and clear language He says the following: Jesus answered, “The man... Continue Reading →
