Becoming Somebody by Becoming Nobody – Part 3

Dearly Beloved, I asked myself the following question some time ago, “How many qualitative daily decisions have I made in the first half of 2016 that brought a limitation to the course of darkness on earth and also slowed down the reign of sin and death in my life and in the lives of others”? (2Pet. 1:4). The candid answer was that I could have done much more! God has blessed us with hindsight from biblical witnesses who kept faith with the light (knowledge) that He dispensed in their day, and one of such characters was an Old Testament...

Praise You My Father

This morning at your feet, I bow my knees in worship to greet; Forever I will loud your praise, And sing of your wondrous grace, That rescued me from the fangs of hell, Giving me joy unspeakable words can’t tell.   I will sing of your mercy and goodness, Your enduring love and kindness; To the vilest sinner once extended, In grace and truth he’s forever embedded; In love and favour forever established, A permanent testimony of your works on the cross finished.   My God, My Lord, My Saviour and King, Your praise forever my mouth shall sing,...

Becoming “Somebody” by Becoming “Nobody” – Part 2

Dearly Beloved, It may interest you to note that we all inherited a sinful nature through the decision of the first Adam not to become “SOMEBODY” in the sight of God. Becoming SOMEBODY before God was tied to eating of the tree of life which came at a cost of DOING NOTHING OF HIMSELF (Jn. 5:30). And so, Adam missed out in degrees of glorification that our Lord Jesus later came into as Jesus “foolishly” hearkened to all of God’s commandment to him, which could be summarized thus, “become the best of NOBODY before the world!” Jn. 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I...

Politics: “The Parable of Abimelech”

1.     Ambitious Abimelech The ninth chapter of the Bible book of Judges records one ambitious politician’s desperate ethnic and bloody schemings for power; schemings which appear to be such a close parallel to our contemporary political experience that his story becomes a prophetic parable for the present age. Gideon the famous warrior, who delivered the Israelites from protracted oppression under the Midianites, was that infamous politician’s father.  In his day, Israel had been so overwhelmed with Gideon’s historic and lasting victory that they unanimously elected to make him their king, and his children his successors, to continue the dynasty after...
