What I'll be doing this year

As many of you are aware or unaware; I’ve recently graduated from the University of the West of England with a degree in Business Management. I thank God for this great opportunity to study and more importantly I give him thanks for how he has transformed my life through this experience to have an increasing passion and love for Jesus Christ and his gospel. Because of this awesome grace, Friends have advised me and I have decided that for the following year beginning from September I’ll be working for my Church undertaking a year on the foundations team at Woodlands Christian Centre in Bristol. 

The foundations team is a year of service where we are given the opportunity to work in different areas of church ministry. I aim to serve in as many diverse roles as possible but my heart beats for Student work, Urban Mission and youth ministry. I am very excited about the possibilities that the coming year will hold and I am hoping to finish the year with a stronger sense of vocation, confidence and experience in a number of practical areas, and a sense of having progressed in my faith to the glory of God and to the benefit of the world wide church. 

The Leaders of the foundations Team that I will be a part of have suggested that we acquire supporters. These are people that will take an interest in me, pray for me and maybe even invest in me. You are more than welcome to support me financially so as to help me finish this race as it is a voluntary role of which I am confident that His grace will see me through.  

I am confident that your prayers will provide me with much support and encouragement. If you would like to receive my monthly newsletter or to support me in any way please reply to my email or this message to keep you informed of my progress. 

I close with this prayer: Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Thank you for your support

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…
