Bearing The Marks Of Christ

Every day the world becomes bolder in its rebellion against God and the order in which He created life to exist. It seemingly extends a hand of friendship with the aim to seduce you into its lifestyle, using alluring tactics that promise solidarity, peace and freedom. Sadly, within the world’s version of these very elements lie a web that entangles and causes one to compromise Scriptural principles, and therefore, rebel against God. Galatians 6 exposes the truth of what the world does. Verse 12 says, “Be circumcised that you may not be persecuted.” Back in Paul’s day, being a circumcised Jew meant you truly belonged to society and could be welcomed into the elite group. Today, the rules are different. Christians are required to be more tolerant and receptive of things that Scripture forbids. Refusing to be socio-culturally “circumcised” may put you in a position to be persecuted. According to the second half of verse 17, however, we’re told that we bear the marks of Jesus Christ in our bodies. Yes, so we should be …

I Am Daniel

When you’ve been selected along with your peers for an enviable position, the natural tendency is to want to empress your superiors. You wouldn’t want to do anything that would jeopardize your chances. And if your moral compass isn’t what it should be, you might even consider compromising certain ethics and principles to make sure that your position is secure. But Daniel wasn’t like that at all. He took note of the fact that the food and wine being supplied to them were sacrificed to the Babylonian god before being served on the king’s table, and knew that to eat it would be to defile himself before God. Aware that it might offend the king and his eunuchs, he took the bold step of requesting for vegetables and water instead. In the end, along with Shedrach, Meshach, and Abednego, he offered a solution that worked for all and honored God. Daniel understood that if God could grant him the favor of being selected by the king, then God could also keep him in the king’s …

Given Over To Death That Life May Be Revealed

The desire to know God will always conflict with the desire to love the world. The ways of the world are alluring such that it is tempting enough to want to forsake a life in Jesus. This is because life in the Spirit is not nearly as tangible as the pleasures of the flesh (2 Cor. 4:18). If you will be successful in a life of faith, you must make up your mind to believe that God is love (1 John 4:16) and that His Word is absolutely true (2 Tim. 3:16-17). Armed with this, and by the power of His grace, you can accept a life of suffering or persecution when they come (Matthew 5:11-12), and you will not be swayed by anything that the world deceitfully offers (2 Cor. 6:16-17; Eph. 4:14). Interestingly, when the world figures out that you have no interest in it, it begins to unveil its true nature—one that the people of the world are queerly oblivious to. You’ll see the world for what it really is—its nakedness and …

The Paradox Way Of Life

As you grow in your Christian faith, you will come to place where you will raise questions that the answers may, in a terrifying way, appear to be in conflict with another truth in God’s Word. The fear of committing heresy or falling into some other sin may hinder you from further exploring these questions and where they may lead to. For instance, you dream and hope for more in life, but you also remember the part of Scripture that tells you to be content; you’re told to embrace the peace of God, but you cannot shake away the concerns you have toward issues you’ve witnessed in the world, or the awkward responsibility you feel toward solving them; you long to open your arms to the hurting and unbelieving world, but you’re reminded that bad company corrupts good character, etc. In your young faith, all these, and more, present a dilemma in your soul. The good news is, these circumstances all raise good questions which when humbly submitted to God, the answers received will grow …

I Am Deborah

Israel was traditionally set up to have its men be the rulers on every level. It was unusual for Israel to follow the leadership of a woman. But with God’s anointing and favor, Deborah was called to be God’s prophetess, so much so that her anointing couldn’t be missed by Israel. Despite Israel’s laid down rules, she became their leader and they came to her to have their disputes decided under the Palm of Deborah—note that the tree was named after her. In following her story, you’d discover that she was a straight shooter—never holding back what needed to be said, and was clearly a very confident woman, too. It was on this path that she led Israel to freedom and victory over their oppressor—quite an unusual trend for a woman at the time. Have you, like Deborah, been called to follow a path less (or not) traveled by anyone of your particular quality? Do you fear rejection and possible hatred from the people that you’ve been called to serve?— Are you a woman called …

I Am Joshua (Part 2)

When you receive a promise of destiny from God, there’s the tendency to rush off in zeal to get started and achieve it all quickly. You might even go ahead and prepare a plan and step-by-step process to get you to where you think you are going (and may even do so forgetting to consult God). You believe that your plan isn’t only fail-proofed, you’re sure that it will get you there without any pain or hitches, and hopefully, will include fame, wealth and bliss. Turns out, God doesn’t necessarily work like that. He is a God of process—He chisels, molds, trims, and cuts our character in ways that could be painful, while teaching us to remain joyful in the midst of the storms in our life. By following Him, we learn the truth that destiny unfolds over time, and it is never in a hurry. Joshua’s journey didn’t start the day he took over from Moses. It started with him learning the ropes as Moses apprentice, and he was so for a long time. …
