The past two weeks

As a student with one lecture a week and a two hour tutorial every two weeks it is remarkable to witness how much time I have and how much I could do. I could work, indulge in my pleasures, study whatever I want to study, help people and many more things. Of course there are lots of things that I could possibly be doing but without a structure I could end up doing nothing.  The past two weeks have been to me a joy and delight, constantly amazed by the grace of God and his divine provision.

Two weeks ago was UWECU events week where the Christian union put on events designed to attract non-Christians to come and hear the gospel of Christ. I loved the week but faded out towards the end for reasons of my own. I loved the gazebo where we gave out free tea and coffee for the whole week to student. I enjoyed the many conversations and the friendship established through serving tea and coffee. The questions asked where general questions of which I had encountered before so it was a pleasure to answer accordingly and tell of the goodness of God. Many of the other events were also enjoyable and throughout the week non-Christians were able to hear the gospel of our blessed Lord. There are many things which happened throughout the week and I thank God for it all. I pray for eternal fruit from this week and that many come to saving faith in Christ.

Playing football for UWE we lost against Swansea which melted our title ambition, Glamorgan needs to drop a point and we have to beat them if we are to win the title. All is in God’s hand and whatever happens Jesus is my satisfaction. I do wish for us to be promoted and with all of my heart I will do my best. Having a niggle also is an hindrance but God has enabled me to play thus far and his grace will see me through according to his will.

Church I have loved, the fellowship awesome and the services have been sweet. Being a student I eat most often after the services and it saves me from cooking. I love the student ministry at WSC and love the leader passionately that I pray that God may increase the fold.

It is entertaining to me to have such a better passion for my study at university. I love reading the journals but I have much to do and more of my time need to be given to it if I am to excel. The literature is vast and interesting but most are saying the same things and my limited mind is beginning to grasp the concept and methodology of political leadership.

This week has been a return to my usual self in the sense of constant daily seeking to reach out to people and serve. I spoke throughout this week to at least one soul about our Lord Jesus Christ and by His grace I shall continue to do so. I need more passion more agony for the lost and to be a man bend on his knee to His God pleading night and day, wrestling with Him till he has blessed me and grants my request which are according to his will and when they are not He corrects them by correcting me.

My friend is in town for most of this week and it has done my soul much pleasure in seeing him again. I love him with all of my heart and pray that He will continue to stand firm to the very end till the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

And whatever is worthy, whatever is pure,  whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things.

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…
