A Selfless Selfish Call

Posted on 26 CommentsPosted in Faith, Life

30 days to go and this is what I am thinking about! Over the weekend before the time of my penning down, I heard from a preacher friend of mine and one of our patrons at The Instruments, Pr Mochoge. He delivered the word at my brother’s wedding and brought it clearly the issue of husbands and wives submitting one to another. More often it’s the woman submitting kind of talk we get when Ephesians 5 is discussed. However, at the very start of this subject in verse 21 it’s the keynote start to the address. “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of the Lord.” Mmmmmh. It got me thinking to take a deeper look into the passage. And lo! I was opened up to a study I never took before, especially now. This explains my write today. This is what is on my mind. My marriage to my fiancée, my best friend, my equal and my love. Days running up to any kind of wedding are crazy days. One can easily pass out from anything. Especially thoughts and running up and down. You see, Loise and I have had crazy times for the past few days and […]

How Does God Promise?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Faith, Life

A writer once wrote, if you want to be a writer, write. It’s been a while since I pieced together my thoughts. I took sometime this Sabbath to have a moment with God. (Written in February 2017) I must say as a Christian, the walk hasn’t been easy. I haven’t done so well. And I know I would do better. So today I took a pause and chose not to be predictable and normal with my Sabbath errands. But this weekend had long painted as different from the others since last weekend. Much was to happen. But God has his plans. So as I pen down today’s piece, that’s my current state. Dressed up but not going out. Rested and refreshed. Hanging out with my brother. Big brother. So as I laid this morning on the couch, an easy day, I turned to a sermon by Randy Skeete: God and God Alone. It would be my third time to listen to it. You can find it on lavingtonsda.org. I had had quite some heavy breakfast and heard lots of music. And as noon was drawing in I fell asleep somewhere between listening to the sermon and it’s close. Not to […]

When you expect so little

Posted on 6 CommentsPosted in Faith, Photography

When I went to bed last night, I had much that I couldn’t resolve in my mind. I remembered the words I had shared with a few of my friends that evening and still much remained to desire for tomorrow. I mean, the normal stuff would well fit an excitement to think of tomorrow but still something lacked. I wouldn’t share much what it was in my mind. Personal. I slept quite late. I thanked God for the Sabbath and quickly sleep took over. When morning was yet to break, I woke up but still lazy to get up for prayer and so I reasoned with God and somehow found a reason to pray casually. Bad move. I then read through the devotional while tightly tacked in my bed. Up to now am sure you’re wondering what’s so special about what am writing. Keep calm. Read on. By all reasons, this morning was heavy on me. I had no taste for huge congregations. I toyed with the thought of having a “home church”. Perhaps I would then have good time to think over what’s really in my mind and come to some worthy conclusion and resolve with Jermin. Even as […]

Amazing Grace. Amazing Love

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Faith

Today I write: That one day, just one day; we all shall see this LOVE and be turned to it with an undivided LOVE and OBEDIENCE. That we will realize how much of the worry we burn our nerves for is like: a dot compared to a boundless, shore-less, limitless, depth-less, immeasurable and endless blessings promised in eternity. For as much as it takes God’s power to create and sustain life (which by every measure is costly); it had to take the death of God to save even one mankind. Now that’s how expensive salvation is. Its not cheap by any measure. (How about this conversation) Buyer: I need some salvation. Seller: Do you have enough cash for it? Buyer: How much? Seller: Calculate the cost of creating a universe, add life to it and sustain it even for a minute. Buyer: That’s a lot! (Surprised) Seller: And that’s not all. Multiply that by the cost of one life by the thousands and billions that has lived and passed through the earth if not all the other planets that life exists. Still this doesn’t compare to even a piece of the total cost… Buyer: Then what’s the cost? Seller: It costs […]

Jesus’ words on the account of Lazarus

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Faith

So today I looked at the words of Jesus in the account of Lazarus’s death: KJV John 11:4, 7, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 34, 35, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44 4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. (Its God’s desire to reveal to us His glory. In our sickness even troubles and weakness, He stands with us. So when we experience these heartbreaking situations, give thanks to God. Its still for our own good) 7 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. (Jesus never put His interest first. Even though He would have had to face death by the Jews in Judea) 9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. 10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. (Work while it is day for night cometh. He that does not have light in him […]

Marriage and Spirituality

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Faith

Marriage is hugely Spiritual as many might not agree. Reading KJV Ephesians 5:21 – 30 clearly, and with deepness of thought counsels on marriage and as Paul starts, he says,”21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” The fear of the Lord should guide and rule your respect to each other. And as he continues in v22, “22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.” He clearly points out the position and roles of each party and how respect should be accorded and why it should be accorded. In v25-29 he points out to the husband, “25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, […]

Let no man deceive you by any means…

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Faith

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; I shall dwell on ‘The falling away…’ It is sad that the bible records of apostasy happening in the church. Look into any church keenly and you will realize the many doctrinal errors that are far from the truth happening in the churches… ‪#‎searchourselves‬ and ‪#‎makeitright‬ with God. Shouldn’t we get right with God and avoid being ‪#‎Spewed‬ by Him? If this happens, is there any hope left for us? The night comes when no man can work. There’s a time when we shall not be able to do anything… Me looking at the events tell me that the winds of strife are about to be let loose and this only happens after the sealing. A time of serious trouble that the world has never witnessed is about to come. I don’t know if its in a year or months or days or hours. If there is a time we need to be right with God is now. We need to make a choice. At least individually if […]

Sabbath…

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Faith

To my many friends you might find it weird my observance of Saturday as the day of worship.(its actually Sabbath) You know, I came to love God and realized this love need not be superficial and a tongue based kind of love. You see, to me when He says do not covet, I don’t mince His words, He is clear. And since I love Him, I stop the moment my heart and body yearns to do that sin. And why do I fight with myself and keep my eyes and desires in check? Because He clear said it and didn’t mince His words. And His word clearly says that we know we love Him when we keep His commandments. You see, coveting is just one of His commandments and the Sabbath is also part of the commandments. If the Sabbath was to be any day then He particularly wouldn’t have had order in creating. He would start by blessing the first day before creating… Or rather blessed the sixth day before beginning creating man… God is a God of order and He wouldn’t let us be disorderly in worshipping Him. Sabbath is the seventh day and Saturday is that day, […]

My Thoughts on Marriage

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Faith

When one gets married, the bond created is inseparable! A stronger bond than that with siblings, or relatives or parents. A bond that even God himself respects and hates to see it break. A bond that He, God, uses to explain the kind of ONENESS Him and the Son have. A bond that makes TWO = ONE. Marriage is sacred and those making the step into it should with all consciousness know this and those in it should strongly know this. However hard it gets, to the married, STAY FIRMLY IN IT. However the stories of its challenges, to the singles, DESIRE IT. ‪#‎GodlyMarriage‬ ‪#‎blessedWednesday‬ Please follow and like me:
