ACCOUNTABILITY IN CHRISTIAN RELATIONSHIPS

4 minutes read Have you seen War Room ? If you have not, please please do. If you have, just hold that thought, you would realize why it's important you have the movie in mind shortly. Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success Proverbs 15:22 First and most important, We must understand that as children of God, we are first accountable to our Father. How do I know? There's a myriad of scriptures that teach us so. To mention a few; Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable  - Hebrews 4:13 The Lord's light penetrates the human Spirit, exposing every hidden motive - Proverbs 20:27 Dear reader, you are here because there is something (someone) in you that makes you want to choose the right path against all odds. I know because no matter how enticing the wide path seems, I always find myself trying to fit into the narrow path. Before I go any further, it might serv

PURITY : HEART CHECK

6 minutes read BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART: FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD -Matt 5:8 Happy New Year Unity of Purpose Fam! New Years are reputed with resolutions, and goal setting, so let's make 2021 the year we seek God out of a pure heart. PURITY- The condition or quality of being pure Grace, arguably the most used 'Christian word', helps us to understand that sin does not cause God to love us any less. God's love is constant. That's a truth based on the word of God (Romans 8:38-39) . So, what is it that prevents me from engaging in the activities that bring me pleasure, especially if I'm not crossing THE LINE, or hurting anyone, or involving anyone else?  The problem with sexual impurity is the place it takes in your heart . Let's ask the real questions here, 'What's the state of your heart'? What do you find yourself thinking about? (Philippians 4:8) What are you watching? What are you listening to? Is God still first place in your heart? If your an

THE CHASE - A Christian's perspective

5 minute read As long as we live in this world, we cannot be a 100% shielded from the goings-on of this world, so always remember that who you are is a function of what you pay the most attention to. As a Christian, everything I do passes through a Jesus filter, and sometimes, some of my actions are unable to get through that filter cause they don’t measure up, so what do I do? I decide to do better, and hope to God that I live up to that decision. The essence of all of this isn't to tell you how to live your life, or instruct you on what you can and cannot do, it's simply one person curious about how she can ensure that more of her actions adequately get through that Jesus filter, and has decided to bring others along, hopefully we can learn one or 2 things from each other. So, The Chase . I spoke to a few Believers, and here's what they had to say What's the place of the guy, if the lady assumes the lead role? - Inaton I subscribe to a lady asking me out 100%, not a

THE CHASE

5 minutes read I know exactly what I want to write about and what the goals of this months study are. I've however had a hard time putting down my thoughts in writing, in a way that I believe you would get the message, so I've been putting this off, but its already 6th of December, so, here goes. P.S., if you did not participate in UNRAVELING THE ONE , I recommend that you go through last months' study, and then come back to this. Something I have made a joke recently is the phrase, "It's 2020". I say that and then say something ridiculous right after that. For example, I could say, "It's 2020, you don’t need precautions to cross the road" ( 2+2 = Moimoi ). An appropriate use of that phrase according to popular culture however, would be, "It's 2020, you don’t have to wait for the guy to walk up to you, if you like him, let him know, ask him on a date". Honestly, even typing that does not feel right. We live in a society where it wou

UNRAVELING THE ONE- A CHAT WITH DR. FEMI OSUNLUSI

Image
5 minutes read I listened to this VN just this morning, and thought you had to listen too. The initial plan was to type out a few of the things Dr. Femi shared with me, so that you can read, but listening to this, I'm fairly certain I cannot capture a lot of what he said adequately, so with permission, I'd send the audio file on the platform. This however is for those who are not able to listen for one reason or the other. Host: What is your idea of the one? Dr. Femi : My idea of the one is not really an idea, it’s a person. She is a person. The one for me is the woman I'm married to. She makes everything make sense, and this isn't just guy rhymes. She's the one I feel extremely comfortable with, extremely vulnerable with, and extremely compatible with. It would be cliché to say she doesn’t complete me because I'm complete in myself, but the truth is, she completes me, I complete her, and we complete each other. Host : Is there a match made in heaven or do I cho

UNRAVELING THE ONE - A chat with Ijeoma Adesanya

5 minutes read This month has felt a little slow. I'm not sure if it is because I have barely had anytime to myself, or if it is because I secretly expected to find a ' Know THE ONE for sure ' self help book lying around. Shocker, it does not exist. I however did find something else incredibly reassuring in my prayer time, and perhaps that is all I need for all my questions to unraveling the one. What did I find? The Omniscient nature of God . I began to study about that, and look back on my life's journey, and I saw how involved God has always been in every decision, every step of the way, and I found peace. Also, this past week, my mum sent me a message, and ended it with the words, 'I believe that God will not allow you to make mistakes in choosing your life partner in Jesus name'. That did something to the conviction I already had of God's sovereignty. I'm going to stop talking now, and let you read this beautiful chat I had with Ijeoma Adesanya . Ho

UNRAVELING THE ONE

4 minutes read A lot of times, I find myself wondering about 'The One'. Who is he? Where is he right now? Have I met him? Or more annoyingly, who is he dating? *Rolling my eyes* When I say 'The One' though, I'm usually not thinking about one person that God made specifically just for me, one person that must find me and I must recognize, otherwise I'd miss it, and marry wrongly. Or is that what it is? Is there really someone whose ribs was taken out to create me? I honestly used to secretly fear that I'd get the exact opposite of what I wanted in a man because for some strange reason, I heard somewhere that 'a sure way to know God is leading you, is if what you think you are being led to do isn't something you'd naturally want to do'. Please unread that . Getting to know God more, I figured out that what the person was trying to communicate was the disagreement between the flesh and the Spirit, but that wasn't a very accurate way to expl
