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...

WHEN GOD RESTRAINS YOU FROM MAKING THAT MOVE

One of the most powerful statements I’ve read came from a title to a blog post by one very amazing blogger. Remain where you heard God last. Those words are heavy, I tell you. For several seconds I couldn’t even click on the link to the post, I just kept staring and pondering on the title. By the way, you should check out Dupe’s blog. She has wonderful contents there. You know, It’s so hard when...

HOW TO DEAL WITH SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION AND PURSUE SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Can our minds ever get quiet? Pressing this thing called phone was my hobby. If my phone could talk, it’d have screamed, ‘Leave me alone for a day please!’ For many of us, our phones have become part of our lives. At work, in church, in the bus, on the dining table and even on the road, our eyes are glued to our phones. We have fallen into gutters, gone past our bus stops, gone late to work...

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...

WHEN THE DESIRE TO HAVE SEX BECOMES OVERWHELMING

Recently, I published an article on How to control your sexual urges as a Christian single. It is a detailed post that proffers practical guidance when it comes to making the right decisions with our bodies as Christians. Few weeks after publishing that article, another salient question arose in my heart after counselling a young lady on this issue. How can a believer handle the desire to respond...

WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF? OVERCOMING THE SPIRIT OF FEAR

Few months ago, I lost a friend to cancer. From the moment the news got to me, I wasn’t myself for the next two weeks. I was psychologically affected. I had so many questions running through my mind. How could this have happened to a young vibrant lady? Why is cancer just ruining people’s lives like this? What guarantee do I have that I’d live till old age? The devil made serious attempt to mess...

5 LIFE LESSONS I LEARNED IN MY JOURNEY AS A CHRISTIAN

I have grown. Oh yes I have. Ife Grace is not where she used to be spiritually. I have seen transformation in great measures. I have experienced God in different dimensions. I have known him as a Father. I have made mistakes. I have cried. I have wondered if serving God was worth it. I have learnt to hear God clearly. I have learnt to walk in faith and most importantly, I have learnt patience...

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR PRAYER LIFE IS A MESS

I know you sincerely want to build your prayer life. You really do. I see that you have tried making plans to grow spiritually but nothing seem to be working. Today, you are on top in your communion with God, but tomorrow you feel so fagged out that you cannot even utter a word of prayer. You are tired.  Tired of struggling with your prayer life. You want this fellowship badly but somehow other...

WHY IS IT DIFFICULT TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE?

For years I placed my experiences above the Word. It wasn’t a deliberate action but somehow life just happened to put before me several challenges that had me figuring out solutions logically and searching for answers from the society. I must confess, there was a time I was wary of people prone to using sentences like, ‘God led me to that person.’ or ‘The Holy Spirit showed me this.’ I regarded...
