There is life in you

Posted by abiolaoloyede3@...

 

No matter how bad the problems life throws at you, and how far you fall from the grace that is in the Lord, the Lord has your back. He knows your heart; He knows you want to do well, and He wants to help you.

The story of the young man in the book of Acts 20:9-12(AMP) reads:

Chase The Blues Away

Chase The Blues Away

Sin is ever presenting itself before us on a daily basis. There’s always some temptation, some evil thought, some feeling.... that isn’t quite right that we need to shake off. It can be distracting at its best and depressing at its worst. Romans Chapter 6 explains how we can build a strategy for living a life of victory over sin.

It involves a change of our mindset. Sounds simple enough but most times we are not conscious of the mind being set in the first place.

To make it easier I will create a scene:

All things work together for your good….

This is a popular verse of scripture from Romans 8: 28. It comforts us in times of distress and is used in times of discouragement. Going back a few verses from this piece of encouraging scripture, a bigger picture is seen that could sometimes be missed.

Focusing on chapter 8, it starts with verse 23 where apostle Paul begins to explain that along with all creatures, Christians are in the process of being redeemed of earthly bodies (bodies that are not subject to ‘sensual feelings’ and ‘earthly decay’) to spiritual bodies..

The Free Gift

Posted by abiolaoloyede3@...

The bible tells us that Jesus Christ is the author of life. Life exists because of Him. I therefore can infer from this that i am alive because Jesus is alive..

I was baptised into Jesus Christ when I repented from my sins and made a decision to live in obedience to the laws of God through the grace that I received by the free gift of imputed righteousness.

It is a fact that man cannot live outside of two mindsets:

1 - The mindset of sin;

2 - or the mindset of righteousness

God is attractive and desirable

John 6:44

“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him [giving him the desire to come to Me]; and I will raise him up [from the dead] on the last day”

It took a while for me to figure that God really wants to relate with me personally.

Anything you can do I can do better?

Posted by abiolaoloyede3@...

We all strive to attain greatness and to attain top positions in all we do. From academic prowess, to sporting greatness, political power, entertainment icons, Nobel prize winners, local heroes, national heroes, global recognition, fame and riches, beauty and talent…. the list is endless.

There’s something about reading about the success of others that makes us look inwards at our own lives and think about how we can be better at what we do.

Born Again to Never Die Again

Born Again to Never Die Again!
Jesus said to the Saducees whose belief was that there is no resurrection of the dead.....Luke 20:35-36
"But those who are considered worthy to gain that other world and future age and to attain to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage;
For they cannot die again, but they are angel-like and equal to angels. And being sons of and sharers in tthe resurrection, they are sons of God"

The Sleeping Watchman

Posted by abiolaoloyede3@...

Following on from the last blog, Eli the priest of God came on my mind and I decided to delve a little into his life. In a sense Eli’s life is similar to that of a watchman as he had the responsibility of looking out for the interest of Israel in his days.

At some point Eli stopped seeing both literally and spiritually, first the word of the Lord became rare and scarce in those days and secondly he started to go blind in 1 Samuel 3:1-2.

The Watchman

Posted by abiolaoloyede3@...

Anytime a major world disaster occurs around the globe it sets one thinking about judgment day. Is the apocalypse upon us?  This is what ran through the minds of the disciples when Jesus made a statement about the temple buildings in Matthew the 24th chapter. Jesus had said…”See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down” What He said made the disciples infer that the end of the world was the only thing that could cause the temple buildings to be destroyed.
