New Word Alive

Tomorrow morning I make my way to Pwelli, Wales for the New Word Alive conference(NWA). I am indeed very excited about it as I have never been before especially to such a large conference expecting up to 4000 people. That's a lot of people and I expect the place to be packed especially the halls where the meetings will be taking place.

My journey begins at 6am, waking up and getting ready to catch my bus to parkway station and from there to Bathspa station where a lovely kind girl has offered me a lift there, otherwise I would be catching the 625am train all the way which roughly takes about 6 hours so I am very grateful for that. I'm taking with me a couple of books and those that are actually related to what I'm studying but will also be taking pride and prejudice and faith and philosophy which I'm currently reading. I thought it good to read the pride and prejudice as it only cost me 20pence and I like the way she writes. Anyway, hopefully the trip to Wales will be fun and maybe engage in some good conversation in the car and talk about religion which is my joy to talk about.

The conference actually doesn't start till Tuesday but since I'm a steward and their should be 80 of us, I have to be there a day early. we will be put into groups of about 7-20 people so looking forward to see those ill be working with. I guess one of the disadvantages of being a steward is that you might miss the live talks and seminars but we do get the CD talks for free. This is a great way to serve and though jobs like these is not particularly to my taste or my liking, I will endeavour to do my best and serve the people for the sake of Christ. I aim to do it with a cheerful smile in the hope that I may encourage others and be a light to those in the dark for I know the anguish of a troubled soul and the weary burden of loneliness.

Speakers such as Wayne Grudem,Jerry Bridges, Hugh Palmer and Rebecca Manley-Pippert are speaking and should prove exciting. Stuart Townsend is the worship leader and some rate him the best in our times.

I hope this may be a fruitful time for everyone who comes and that many may be encouraged in their faith. i pray its a fruitful time for me too, as I continue to work out my salvation in fear and trembling and sorting out the deep issues of my heart.

God bless you all

When God turns a deaf ear on prayers

Does God always hear people’s prayers, or do some pray in vain thinking that God hears them, when in reality He chooses to turn a deaf hear to their cries? Some may perhaps have a notion that all prayers are worthy, and God being who He is is by nature willing to listen and hear their prayers delightfully. They entertain the notion that it is their birth right for God to listen to their prayers and answer them accordingly. Also, there are some who come before the presence of the Lord with severe doubts, defeated by the devils whisper that they are such an unworthy soul that for them to lift up their cries to the Lord is an abomination. They are mute by their own wickedness, depressed and thus fail to pray.

What does the scripture say about God turning a deaf hear to prayers? It is to be said that God is sovereign and can choose to answer any prayer as He sees fit. He is altogether happy and never backed into a corner, God always does whatever He pleases for He is free to do as He wills…

What does it mean to live a godly life?

If you ever asked yourself the question, what does it mean to live a godly life? and if your not exactly sure what living a godly life involves, this extract taking from Charles Seet book 'A Christian in a non-Christian world' provides ample guidance on just what to do.

Now it is worth asking the question then, 'What does it mean to live godly?' It does not mean that we are just to confine ourselves within a set of rules and regulations. Some people reduce godly living to a list of 'do’s and don'ts.' But the meaning of godly living goes far deeper than that.

Godly living means living in the manner that God wants us to live. It means having the same feelings, attitudes and heart's desires that God has. It means that we love the things that God loves, care for the things that God cares for, and dislike those things which He dislikes. And since God loves righteousness, a godly person also loves righteousness. Since God hates sin, a godly person also hates …

Women of the Bible: Adah and Zillah

The Sin of Adam and Eve resulted in the fall of humanity. Every generation after them became wicked and that is why scripture affirms, ‘that there is no one righteous, no, not even one.’ Mankind became enslave to the passions of its flesh, its desires became its ruler and men followed the natural dictates of their hearts; and were it not for Sovereign grace, the race of men would now only be read of by angels in the library of extinct creatures. Adam and Eve witnessed the consequences of their sin in the death of their beloved son, Abel, by the hands of Cain who murdered his brother in anger and was thus sent away from the presence of God. My dear sisters, sin is not only sin when it is found in its extremes, sin is also sin in its subtlety and vanity. Sin is sin when one's affection is set on another and not on God, when one lives to please a thing or a being which is not God; this is also sin.
This becomes especially evident in the lives of Adah and Zillah the wives of Lamech. Th…
