FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST, THE GOOD SHEPHERD.

Image
The 23rd Psalm has remained a very comforting and reassuring scripture for several millions of people for very many centuries. In this Psalm are the words of King David, a great Psalmist and a man who delighted in God so much that his faith remains exemplary to this day. He had a very real and close fellowship with God and in this Psalm he tells us a key element of that blessed relationship he had with God. He declares very boldly in the first verse of this Psalm, “The Lord is my Shepherd”.

Have a great read!] No doubt, King David knew so much about the close bond and affinity that exist between a sheep and its shepherd having been a shepherd boy before becoming the King of Israel. In our modern world today, we rarely see sheep rearing as it was done in ancient Israel. A shepherd spent full time with his flock,…

NO CHRIST, NO CHRISTMAS!

Image
The Christmas season is the time of the year that witnesses a lot of celebrations. There is a general air of merriment wherever you turn. I think it is no coincidence that Christmas is marked in December, the last month of the year. The red and white colours of Christmas conspicuously adorn homes, schools, shops, and many other public places. Also, it is common place to see special dresses, hats, etc characteristically worn only for the Christmas celebrations. This season is a spectacular time of the year marked in so many nations worldwide. Over the years, business proprietors and merchants have tapped into the high propensity of people for shopping this period to make their last major profits for the year. It is common place to hear of Christmas bonanza, Christmas splash, and so many other marketing schemes designed around the Christmas festivities. This is also the time of the year when some consumer goods sell for twice their normal prices at other times of the year. Transportati…

THE GREATEST PLEA BARGAIN DEAL

Image
Everyone who is familiar with our nation’s judicial system will know there are many avenues of dispensation of justice. The Plaintiff and the accused person would have to appear in court, having contracted advocates or lawyers to argue their case before a judge, or with the help of a mediator, approach an alternative dispute resolution court where matters could be settled amicably. Plea bargaining is a method of justice dispensation which is practiced both in the conventional courts and the alternative dispute resolution channels. It is a method that requires the accused person to confess and own up his wrongdoing as charged, in order for justice to be served with mercy. In other words, the accused person pleads guilty before a judge, and his lawyer(s) or advocate(s) can enter a deal with the judge for a reduction in the sentence he should get for the offenses he committed.

WHO IS YOUR COUNSELLOR?

Image
"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD and on his law he meditates day and night" (Psalm 1:1, English Standard Version).

The Scripture that heads this paper has only a few words but it really deals with the critical issues of our daily living in a very extensive way. A simpler and more exemplary rendition of this verse in the New International version translation of the Bible reads: "Happy are those who reject the advice of evil people, who do not follow the example of sinners or join those who have no need for God. Instead, they find joy in obeying the LORD and they study it night and day". Every day we live in this world we are faced with the tas…

RAISED WITH CHRIST

Image
Once you were dead because of your disobedience and and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil - the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God's anger, just like everyone else.
But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. ( It is only by God's grace that you have been saved!) For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of His grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Jesus Christ.

PRAY, GOD WILL ANSWER YOU!

“What a friend we have in Jesus,  all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to  God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we  bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.” –  (Joseph M. Scriven)

These lyrics of the first stanza of a popular  hymn written by Joseph Scriven communicate to us the profound truth of  God’s wonderful relationship with man. The fact that an Almighty and  Sovereign God, creator of the universe, would stoop low to listen to  lowly beings as we are is indeed a great privilege that should cheer us.  God is indeed very mindful of us and cares about the situations we are  in and very readily comes to help us out when we call on him. Though He  dwells in highest heavens, He hears even the faintest cry for help of …
