Heavenly-Minded; Earthly Relevant

C.S. Lewis wrote in his book, Mere Christianity “It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of other world that they have become so ineffective in this.” Profound. Spend few seconds to reflect on what Lewis wrote. This is what I got from it. If we want to be really effective as Christians, we have got to shift…

Build relationships by sharing, communicating and caring

How do we restore a brother or sister who has fallen into sin? Let’s say the truth, we avoid talking about it or we smooth over it because no one likes confrontation. However instead of gossiping about it or doing nothing, love demands that we confront because we care.  But, we must be careful not to employ a wrong approach that…

Train your eyes to see

Whenever I think about Apostle Paul, I often wonder how he didn’t complain or despair when he remained under guard in Rome and in bonds elsewhere. I think I now know the main reason. It was because of what he saw (was seeing). God gave tremendous grace to Paul that enabled him to experience supernatural visions and revelations of…

He started his first magazine (Go Cycle) while in his second year of study.

The secrets of having dominion over the flesh

The mystery of the kingdom of God is to them that perish, foolishness but the source of life and strength to those who believe. More than ever, we are getting closer to the reality that in the latter times, iniquity shall abound because the love of many shall wax cold. Today’s church is dividing spoils of conquests, and painfully…
