Resting in His LOVE

on Tuesday, 24 October 2017.

What do you desire? A happily ever after, excellent children, successful career… name it it’s yours. We have been told that happiness stems from having all this and more.

 If this is true, why is it that some successful people go into drugs and sometimes commit suicide even when they have all these and much more?                    

This is simply because what we are really searching for is something to fill that void at the center of our being.

I’ve been there - Lord God, more money please, children, a great marriage please!!! Each answered prayer opened up new possibilities yet I was never completely happy or fulfilled..

Then I fell in love with Him. Falling in love with Him wasn’t so difficult; He has always had my back. As years went by, I realized that life situations still affected my joy. I will ask myself what’s happening, when things didn’t go my way. Does He still love me? What am I missing? Which actions do I need to perform to remain in God’s good book? The more I tried, the more I wondered what this salvation thing was all about.

One day I heard His voice say to me REST IN ME; REST IN MY LOVE. This was new to me! Rest? I began to come into His presence not necessarily to pray but to be still – there I found love so deep that no amount of wealth or unanswered prayers could shake me.

I began to realize that the important thing that feeds the core of man/woman is a relationship so deep and intimate with God his maker that nothing else seems to matter. This love is found in Jesus Christ and kept with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Now not only do I continually rest in His love but He has begun to bless me with all things.

I no longer fret over big or small situations, because I know that the DIVIDEND OF THIS INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP IS VICTORY ON ALL SIDES.

How are you tending to your 1st church?

on Tuesday, 07 November 2017.

I remember listening to Joyce Meyer few years ago about how she an her husband would quarrel till they get to church; then they put up a happy face and pretend that all is okay.

This got me thinking and reminded me of a similar situation in our marriage – we had gone to church and a couple who just got engaged came to commend us as their role model, on our way back from church we had an issue that led to us not going home in the same car.

Seeing the same issues in the lives of so many people, we are pressed to address this today.

What is a Church?

The Church is simply a meeting place for people of the same belief; especially believers/Christians. The church is made up of different families. Take out or remove the family unit there is no church.

Many a times we are concerned about the Church/secondary family without understanding that if the family unit – Primary/1st church is built and moral values are instilled that the church will become better for it.

Let’s address tending our 1st church/family from this three parts:

  1. An example – most Christians are great examples in the church but at home is a different story. This affects the spouse and children so much that they stop believing in God. What example are you showcasing at home, work and in church?

Are you an example? 1 Timothy 3:12

  1. Love walk – Love cannot be touched but it is felt all and has no language barrier. Love is service, it is the ability to meet another at their point of need. Most of us serve in various arms of the church but when last did you serve your family, the 1st church? Don’t forget loving your neighbor as yourself is the second greatest commandment Mark 12: 31.
  1. Teamwork – ability to work together complementing and not competing is the strength of the church. The same applies in family – till the husband and wife come together as a team; the children and goals for the family will not be realized in its fullness. Gen 1:28

Remember to tend to your 1st church/family as you tend to the bigger church.
