CONVICTION IS OF THE HEART

Topic: Conviction is by the Spirit Text: Acts 2:37, I Corinthians 2:1-5 Written by Priscilla Oyewole There are times when we misunderstand our role in the divine business of saving souls. We play God sometimes and as a result we do not see the result we desire. We must continually see that our place in drawing men to God is to spread the Good news – the birth, death, burial, resurrection...

WHY CAN’T I GET RID OF THIS SINFUL HABIT? MONICA WRITES

Last week, I was at your house to see your roommate, Shewa. You were sitting in front of the veranda on a kitchen stool crying. I stopped to ask what the matter was, but I knew it was a wrong time to engage in any discussion with you. I left you alone and went in to see Shewa. I was concerned. It’d be the third time I’d see you crying profusely. There had been other times though where you looked...

THE DAY I MET SHOLA

I regret ever meeting Kelvin. I regret the day he walked up to me while I sat on a log of wood outside the building that served as our lecture hall, a place we were forced to attend boring lectures. It was the first week of my stay at the NYSC orientation camp. I remember that on this particular day, I had left the hall because it was very stuffy, oh yeah, that hall was packed full with corps...

ARE YOU UNDER THE LAW OR IN CHRIST

Some years ago, I had a misconception about the law of Moses. I believed that the law in itself,-ceremonial, moral laws- was evil and deadly. Not until I stumbled on Romans 7:12. Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. Romans 7:12 That scripture made me realize that there was nothing sinful with the laws of Moses given on Mount Sinai. However, at the time those...

HOW TO BECOME ADDICTED TO THE SECRET PLACE

Last year, I asked my blogging mentor a question. Something was happening to me in my journey as a blogger and I wanted to know if she was experiencing the same situation as I was. Here’s the question paraphrased. ‘Esther, is blogging addictive or am I the only one feeling restless and starved when I’ve not blogged in a week?’ If I hadn’t scribbled down something in a day for my blog, I was not...

WHAT TO DO WHEN SPIRITUAL ACTIVITIES BECOME BORING

My bible is opened on my bed. I am determined to read and meditate on the Word. In fact, to show my seriousness, I place my pen and notepad beside the bible. I don’t want to miss anything God has to say today. Slowly, I begin to read… and gbam, sleep knocks. But I wasn’t feeling sleepy some minutes ago, why now?  Instead of lying down, I sit up and continuing reading. Different...

HOW CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS HELPS YOU OVERCOME SIN

In my last post on the lessons from Galatians, I announced that Galatians 1:8,9 would be the center for discussion this week but I changed my mind. I want to jump quickly to a verse in chapter 2 and later return to chapter 1. What lesson am I sharing today? It’s from a verse I love so much. A bible passage that gets me excited even from the very first sentence. It is the greatest secret to living...

LESSONS FROM GALATIANS : LET’S FOCUS ON THE GOSPEL

Some years ago, I began to read contents from some ladies who were intellectually sound and their reasoning faculty was just superb. They wrote so powerfully that there was no way you would not be hooked by their words. I adored them and would talk about them to any one who cared to listen. But then I noticed my faith walk was getting affected negatively. Beyond the intellectual enlightenment...

LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF GALATIANS : YOUR WORDS CARRY POWER

My pen is the best form of communication when I need to express my displeasure at anything. I’m not much of a verbal confrontational person but give me a pen and paper, and I could scribble words that’ll leave you destabilized emotionally. At the time I began to gain some level of influence on social media, when you stepped on my toes, I gave it to you hot. I didn’t care who was on the...
