The Temple

Image
Apostle Paul in 1 Cor. 3:6-20 explains how we are now the ark that houses the Spirit of God. "For we are the husbandry of the lord, a living vessel that should be unblemished to carry out the works of God." This is possible for Jesus Christ by doing the will of the father, laid a foundation of spiritual works in each of our hearts. A seed was sowed in the spirit, which yields fruit in our lives today. This chapter in the bible teaches the profitable works of sowing to the spirit, rather than the flesh, because the works of the spirit gives life but the works of the flesh are perishable. In verses 12&13 he alludes that when our works will be tried by fire, the works of the spirit will abide but the vain works of the flesh will be destroyed. (1 Cor. 3:16-17, 1 Peter 1:7). Our body is a tool in God's hand to carry out profitable works that would abide forever; but when the tool is corrupt, it is useless and would only yield perishable works that would be destroyed by Go…

The Creator's Nature is Gentle

Image
God’s nature as we know it, attracts every soul not just because He is our Creator, but also because even a soul that hasn’t discovered Him can find him in a meditative state – that quiet moment and environment with your deepest thought to discover anything. There is a nature we are yet to adopt from the Spirit of God: these attributes are in us, but lack balance to yield its effectiveness in our lives. Psalms 46:10 says “…be still and know that I am God.” Only a calm and vigilant soul will hear when the Spirit of God speaks, because our means of communicating with the Spirit of God is divine, graceful, honourable, humble, and is cloaked in integrity. A lousy soul cannot commune with the Spirit of God: because when you are joined with Him, you would have all the characters of the Spirit of God active in you. Galatians 5:22-23 KJV.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,  [23] Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Faith in Love

Image
LOVE is an action word; you can’t truly love by words without actions to match. The joy you feel when you love, drives you to act on love. It’s no wonder Jesus said: “…no greater love than a friend that is willing to lay down his life for the sake of love.

John 15:13 KJV
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

He backed up His words with action! .Desiring to do all that is good and just in the eyes of God, and towards your neighbour is the act of Godliness – this is LOVE! This is the character of Our Creator; to love in truth and justly. Unrequited love is an unfulfilling love that can drain you emotionally and physically, leaving you with dashed hopes: but a faithful lover will surely get his reward. It’s a privilege for us the created, having the Creator seek the love of His creation, rather than compelling love from them. 1 John 4:10-11 KJV

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation f…

The Greatest Enemy

Image
We ultimately are our greatest enemy, because man ate of the fruit of good and evil when the capacity to will good and evil was not given. This disobedience caused a seal to be broken, hence the origin of humanity was altered, leaving us vulnerable to things we know, but cannot understand; bad things we know but cannot fight off. Disobedience is an act where a law from a higher power is flouted. In our world today, when we break a law, we are more or less unaffected by it, but with God, every act of disobedience has a great price the offender surely pays. God’s law or command was created to save man from the unknown, and also from the certain responsibilities man isn’t equipped to handle. The act of sin and disobedience to God’s words has made man lawless.
Proverbs 25:28 says: “A person that has no law guiding his spirit is like a forgotten flower left to fade away or for strangers to trade on as they please.” Proverbs 14:12 KJV
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the e…

Clarity Of Our World Through God's Eyes

Image
The tale of God and humanity is a multifaceted one, However, what intrigues me the most are stories which exemplify His humility and love, which overcomes pride and hate in man. Our story with God is constantly rooted in being selfless, as a child .The workings of God are bound by principles: principles stipulated by Himself, to guard and guide; principles binding for all ages. As He has said: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my word shall notpass away”. Oh what humility for a King and Creator to be subject to laws He crafted! Pride however, has separated God’s people from Him, through humility and submission to the influence of the Spirit of truth – the Holy Spirit – the only way to reconcile themselves back to God. (Matt. 18:3-4).
In as much as God has the power to give us the perfect life He wants for us [even in this corrupt world,] the earth is presently an eternity away from His definition of perfection.
The world we see today has become such a lesson ground for humans, th…

True Righteousness

Image
Everything God created, He did from a bowel of love. God, by divine wisdom created all things, and after creation saw that all was good. One of the qualities that typifies the nature of this God, is that of Righteousness. Seeing that God created man in His image, He thus expects His creation to be righteous even as He is because his spirt gave birth to humanity– our original nature! Righteousness is however a lifestyle, our way of life, that can only be engendered by a life dedicated to loving God; one deliberately committed to staying in His presence at all times. To commune with a righteous God, one must of necessity place a premium on righteousness themselves.

True righteousness is a function of love for God! True righteousness isn’t centered simply on externals – physical coverings from clothing to depict modesty, or austerity – but hinges on love in its purest forms towards God, and His creation. To live righteously, one’s mindset and disposition towards all that concerns God, i…

The Untold Love Story

Image
Were we told the right story about God ? The actual one that will lead us to search our lives and change totally our mind set .it took till my 20s to come to an understanding of the love of God to humanity. So i ask where we told the right story , i mean the one that a naive teenager that has little experience with life but energetic to discovery would listen to and set some priority. Lets see this example

He created that you may discover him and choose over every other thing to be with him, giving you total liberty out of love to decide if you want to spend an eternity with him in paradise or an eternity in hell.

Its sad to say this love story was never emphasized to us ,imagine a God creating a being and asking that being to love his creator first with all his mind,soul and heart, when he can command the love totally to be in that created being. " I would say what is formed from itself has the ability to generate complete love from its origin if only you believe". God s…
