Please Lord help me get one more!
Those were the words that Pfc. Desmond Doss kept repeating as he rescued his fellow soldiers behind enemy lines. Doss enlisted as a soldier during World War II but was ostracized by his colleagues due to his pacifist beliefs and stance. He later went on to earn the respect of his colleagues and superiors for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa. Desmond Doss became the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honour—America’s highest award for courage under fire.

Yes, I am guilty as charged.
I wonder how many readers of this blog have asked themselves if I live what I preach. And like Paul too, I pray daily that I would not be a cast away after preaching to people. This becomes very important because the Bible makes us understand that many would be cast away on the last day after they have raised the dead, healed the sick, and did all sorts in God’s name. Isn’t that tragic? Continue reading
I remember growing up in a Nigerian home with typical Nigerian parents. My parents wanted us to be as perfect as possible and be the standard for other children in the neighborhood. Anything short of this was not acceptable. If your grades were poor in school, you would hear something like “do those who came first or second in your class have two heads?” When you ask for lunch too early, you would be reminded of your peers who have to hawk to eat. These experiences are things that most people from Nigerian households can associate with. Continue reading
A lot of people are familiar with the saying “knowledge is power”. But I’m yet to hear that a biology textbook cured headache, or even the Bible raise the dead. In essence, , ownership of books do not guarantee power or victory. What guarantees victory or power is the application of the information in these books. That’s why a pauper can pass an examination reading borrowed books while a prince who has owns the same books would fail the same exam. Ownership isn’t key, application is!

Grace, what is it?
Its definitions vary from; God’s ability in man’s inability, God-in man’s-Race, divine partiality in humanity, unmerited favour, God’s endless mercies etc. All these definitions have defined grace very accurately, and many of us can relate to at least one of these definitions. Grace isn’t just all these definitions but grace is also God’s character.
Have you ever looked at a situation in your life and then you say that could only have been you Jesus?
At times you write a test and you know that what you wrote down should give you a D and at most a C, but results come out and it’s an A. Continue reading
Apart from the fact that the music videos we have today are filled with vulgarism and explicit scenes, materialism seems to be the new sexy. Everyone is singing about cars, money, booze and lavish lifestyles. And all these are displayed in full HD on our TVs at no extra charge. Firstly, this goes against the 1st and 2nd commandments that says God only is our master and that we should not worship any graven image. (Exodus 20:4-5 KJV) Continue reading
