Sloppy Grace


I had no intentions of blogging today but the truth is that you come across some truths that gets you thinking and #making you want to share with others.

Many a Christians do not understand grace, we use grace.

Grace abounds not Grace on a perpetual rebound (continuing in wrong  so it abounds)

The quote below should get you thinking as it got me

I Don’t Want To Change My Faith


faith in Christ

If you are a Christian  (BORN AGAIN) from my part of the world then you probably have heard this statement more than once in your life time” i don’t want to change my faith”. it has become so common that you find yourself ignorantly trying to justify the good you are trying to do ( this is especially common when you go out for evangelism or when encouraging a friend to follow you to church to hear God’s word with you etc ). you even meet a man that wants to marry you and he tells you that you have to change your faith to be his wife ( he actually means church). Faith is not a church people. Faith is not a location. We Christians have to work on our grammar? it sounds like believing in Jesus Christ equals change of cloths from a closet full

It gets you wondering if you both are Christians or some parts of the bible are just out of place.One Lord, one faith, one baptism, Eph 4:5. You begin to wonder ;was i asking you to stop believing in Jesus Christ? Our faith is stayed on Him. He is the Author and Finisher of our faith. So what faith don’t you want to change?

YOUR PERFECT MAN FOR ME


The Perfect man

Your opinion of my prefect man is perfect. I appreciate your love because in your eyes I see he is perfect. The right height, appropriate age, prefect skin colour, fine eyes, glittering teeth and those drop dead abs with the right number of veins on his muscular skin, being able to lift me up to touch the moon and put me in a sweet dream(#put me to bed).

So I got to thinking;

Did you check if he has the right heart and loves the Most High?

Did you check just his skin or the scares that are born out of unconditional sacrifices?

Are his eyes just fine or do you think he will fill me life with fun and laughter and make me smile out my white teeth?

Is he just aged or mature?

Is it just the veins or you’re sure he will value me and bring out the best in me?

Is it just about lifting my body what happens to my Spirit?

Will i just have sweet dreams or be in the sweet place at the end of life?

Your answer will make me look into your opinion for me.

Be a Church; Do Not Play Church


Church

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Cor 3:16

In Africa and especially Cameroon (my great Fatherland); Growing up oops! I played church. Myself and kid brother will go to church where we were sure it will close soonest so we could be back home to eat or play. You know what they say “being a child and being into childish way”. It was a fun thing for me; can you relate with that?

Coming of age, I experienced a love that knew no wrong. It just brings you to a place that it’s not about men and expectations, it’s about a love that you can’t help but be true to despite falling and falling and yet waking at mercies feet.

I discovered from moving from church to church which we have lots in Cameroon, (I didn’t move to many per say but visited other churches; we are body, so these have different names (parts); somehow it was like a vague repetition; so much copy and paste, so much do’s and don’ts. It’s like you are torn between which to follow, what to wear or not wear and how they represent the church that we are not the building that we attend service in.

The focus turned to the building and impressing other or making an impression, it moved from being a temple where the Almighty can dwell, move and have being in; to impact others lives to taking care of the floors, walls, and designs (oh nothing is wrong in making the physical good even as the real temple is in top form)” What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 1 Cor 6:19”

Saying on Sunday you want revival and on Monday can’t even find your bible? Playing church!

Having a form of religion and denying the Power thereof? Playing church!

Have you being playing church? It’s time to be a church

WHICH HURTS THE MOST?


Thoughts can be words

I find myself thinking aloud and thoughts pacing to and fro.

So which hurts the most “SAYING NOTHING AND WISHING YOU SAID SOMETHING OR SAYING SOMETHING AND WISHING YOU DIDNT”?

In my personal opinion but ends can make the heart fonder or harder. I know right. To me it is always right to free your emotions. Even if you won’t appreciate me for what I said, I will be happy I spoke from my heart.

I know the power in words, I prefer to speak. Let me know what you think . It is the reason we are here

Think Your Life Through – Steve Jobs


Icons leave an impression on us and after I read his last words it got me thinking on my job and life more.

Jobs

Steve jobs’ Last Words –

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.

In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:

Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days …

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.

What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? – “Sick bed” …

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…

Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

True Wisdom


Pure – doesn’t defile

Peaceful – gives all round rest

Gentle – not imposing but “proof-ful”

Reasonable – not abstract but extra-ordinary

Full of mercy and good works – shares and benefits others

Without partiality – no race, age, sex, colour, ethnic and what have you distinctions

Without hypocrisy – no claims of higher standards or more noble beliefs
