How will you feel if you are walking, down the road and you see somebody vandalizing a church? You should feel bad and do everything you possibly can, like call the police, to stop them. Guess what? We vandalize our bodies on a daily when we eat things that we know will destroy our bodies. Read the rest of this entry

John 15:9-10 “I’ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love. If you keep my commands, you’ll remain intimately at home in my love. That’s what I’ve done—kept my Father’s commands and made myself at home in his love.” (MSG).
God loves you. Wherever you are, whoever you are, God loves you. He cares about every single area of your life, and He wants to bless you. God wants you to be healthy in every area of your life.

Romans 8:31 “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” (NIV).
Your picture and understanding of God determines the quality of your life. When it comes to grace, people tend to be on one extreme or the other.

Whenever the enemy comes at you, life throws challenges at you, and when you are under pressure, it is not about your cars, houses, finances, health, or your children. It is all about your faith. Jesus said to Peter, the enemy wants to sift you all, but I pray that your faith will not fail (Luke 22:31). Read the rest of this entry

Hebrews 12:2 “Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever…” (MSG)
Jesus surrendered His life for you and I! He gave His life for you and me, He voluntarily gave up His spirit. You do not give up what is taken from you. If something is taken from you forcefully by lies, coercion, or manipulation. But none of those made Jesus give up His life. Read the rest of this entry

God wants us to centre our lives around Him (worship), learn to love His family (fellowship), cultivate spiritual maturity (discipleship), contribute something back (ministry), and tell others about His love. 2 Corinthians 5:18&20 “…Through Christ, God made peace between us and himself, Read the rest of this entry
1Peter 4:10 “God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other…” (LB, emphasis added)
