Walk the talk! 

​You tell us to focus on putting God first and intentionally seeking His face first thing when we wake-up, yet the first thing you do when you wake up is grap your phone 📱.. To check your social media updates.. What if we stop making our phones lords over our Lord? 

You post on your social media accounts every now and then about God and His words yet your actions contradicts your words. 

You rather choose to talk , the talk and not walk 🚶 the talk. 

Your posts about purity are so lit yet you still indulge in per marital sex. Who do you think you are fooling? Obviously not God. 

On that day, the heavens will open and the weather will change rapidly, but you will think it’s a weather for two. No dear! It’s rapture  just continue. 

You post about His love, yet your refuse to give your roommate who has ulcer a tin of milk because you are yet to open it. 😌 please , where did you learn your own agape love from? Sure you were not touched beyond words. 

You got a beautiful voice, no doubt and sing in the choir but what you know how to do best with your mouth 👄 when you are not singing in church is to judge, criticize, and gossip about others young Christians. 

You wear Christian tees, with scriptures boldly written on them yet putting God first and intentionally seeking His face is the last thing on your slate. 

Despite your increased knowledge of His word by attending bible study every Tuesdays, you did not have His heart in you. 

How would you feel that you sat in Church ⛪ every week, only to spend eternity in hell because you confessed to be a Christian but denied Him with your lifestyle? Just think about this. 

Just for the record, If you have invited Jesus to make a home in your heart then stop trying to keep sin as a roommate. ✋

Its so sad that many young people profess Christ, but dwell in their sin, then die just to hear “Depart from Me. I never knew you, you did not abide in my love, and couldn’t bear fruit” … May this not be our experience. 

What a cheap trade, to choose the world and lose my life source (Luke 9:25)!

It is high time we got it right with Jesus with a genuine heart ♥.

 I guess you know that plants thrive when they’re deeply rooted in good soil. People thrive when they’re deeply rooted in Christ.Are you planted?

You have all the time in the world to get saved, have fun now” then you choose to be a part time Christian. This thought runs through your mind,  right? 

You can only be on one team! Christ or the enemy! No double siding! It’s either you’re a disciple or you’re a Judas?

You cannot entertain the things of this world & claim to still love God. It’s enmity.

The Lord doesn’t need a tweet or a post from you, of course other people do. What He needs? He needs your time, your heart, your focus & your dedication. We were created for more!

I am not judging everyone here.. I actually don’t like to burst everyone’s little bubbles.. Put we need to constantly remind ourselves of the truth. 

But the good news is that no matter the number of times you must have rubbed His name in the mud!God’s love is so amazing ..

No matter how much you cheat God, have affairs against Him…He still remains faithful to you. Can we dig how deep His love is ❤️ ️? 

 He would keep showing you mercy time and time again.. Because you did not choose Him, but He chose you (John 15:16) and What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? (Romans:6:1) of cause No.

Christianity is not a dress rehearsal! You only have one chance so step out and know that God’s got your back🔥🔥🔥 

So next next time when you tell us to listen to only gospel songs 🎶 make sure… God is the “headphones” in your life. Listen to Him and don’t take Him off in order to listen to another voice; Satan’s voice… 😘.. 😘

Dear young folks, Trust Him

image

I just keep wondering why young people tend  to complain when God is working on our situations or circumstances. Why do we lack patience and understanding?Have you ever thought about this? Just imagine when you take your phone or car to the repairer’s workshop to get it fixed… Don’t you wait patiently for the numbers of hours it going to take to get it fixed?Yes of course, we do. We even trust the repairer’s ability to fix the problem,with less worries in our minds.. So why do we get worried when God is working out our situation on our behalf? We sometimes get to the extent that we trade our faith for doubts, we seek for help elsewhere and make lot of negative comments about God. I just want to encourage someone. It’s  time you let go and let God take control and just watch him work out that situation on your behalf… Cast your burden upon him and see Him turn your mess into an inspiring message.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart & lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
God’s plan is always the best. The process might be painful & hard, but don’t forget that when God is silent, He’s doing something for you.
God has a special timing. Never early. Never late. It takes patience and faith. But it’s worth the wait.

It’s tattoos again

image

I was recently walking down the road when i spot the love tattoo peeking out of the low rise jeans of a pretty lady on a motor bike that had just passed by me. At first the lady looked so pretty to me but immediately i saw the tattoo,the reverse was the case. I certainly know am not the alone person in this planet with same opinion about tattoos.
Some people love it with a dear heart, while some hates it passionately, just like i do. What category do you belong?
By the time you must have finished reading through, i believe you would find a  category to fit in.
Some would say that tattoos are simply a harmless expression of individuality. Yes, it could be a form of  individual expression, as reasoned by some and it could also be  a sign of trouble when lust,adultery, nudity,and other vices are promoted by such tattoos,then it’s an obvious sign of trouble.

image

The tattoo rave is surprisingly common amongst the female folks; as you find it in  every suggestive and seductive place, imaginable; what should be covered is left open to flaunt the tattoos.
Some persons argued that tattoos is the latest way for younger generation to distinguish itself from it predecessors. So what’s the big deal?
Back in history, tattoos were worn by drunkard and criminals make it a big deal for responsible individuals now to wear them ?or  the fact that Greeks and Romans of the bygone times used tattoos for identifying slaves and criminals make it less acceptable now?
However,study conducted provided strong evidence that a tattoo may be a visible clue that a teenager is headed in the wrong direction,(that means that lady is heading for……)the survey showed that tattooed teens were almost four times as likely as their peers to have had sex(so apparently you see less virigins amongst tattooed chicks) and about twice as likely to abuse drugs,alcohol or cigarettes (obviously tatooed fellows are most likely to be drunkard,smokers and drug addicts).
If these could be true for teenagers, then tattoos can be an obvious sign of trouble for anyone,regardless of their age or sex.
Don’t get lured into the insane rave of the most,your body is much more precious than that. The bible declared that we are the temple of the lord; so who you rather mess his temple up or do the the opposite. For God bought you with a high price,so we must honour God with your body. Anytime the thought of Having a tatoo comes to your mind, also remember you have a holy presence.
Lets keep making the difference always.
