The Cheerful Giver
To give is to provide for in a way that fulfils the needs of another person. We’re inclined to think about money whenever we hear the word ‘give’, but giving means fulfilling the needs of another person and human needs are not just financial — even though many needs can be met through money.
The Word confirms that Lord loves a cheerful giver, but if you take a step back to examine your hands, how open have they been?
What would you do if you knew rapture was happening today?
Rapture is a topic that people tend to either shy away from or become so frightened about, but as a christian, this shouldn't be so.
This episodes seeks to address the purpose of a believe and how it connects to the second coming of the Lord.
As you listen, may you be blessed, amen.
Who are you in the presence of God?
Can you please do me a favour?
Before you give this a listen, please spend about a minute or two thinking about who you are when you are in the presence of God. It'll be of great help too if you can also note it down.
I pray that as you listen to this, it touches you in the place God wants it to, in Jesus name.
How to study the Bible (interactive Bible study; 04/02/23)
We make a mistake when we go into the Bible reading it like an enjoyable novel, rather than studying it as a body of work that seeks to teach us more and more about God. Starting from the beginning, study Genesis chapter 1 with us and may your eyes be opened to see the beauty of depth of God's wisdom! Case Study: Genesis 1
Take outs from the first chapter of the Bible:Dominion - It spells out who are we and why are we here. We see what fellowship and intimacy with God. Looking into the future, we can look backwards to learn from the past; what do we expect when we die or after the rapture? Genesis 1 gives us a peep into life without sin.
The blessings of new beginnings (14/01/23)
Genesis 1:1 NLT
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
We all know this story, but here’s where I am heading.
Genesis 1:14 NLT
“Then God said, “Let lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night. Let them be signs to mark the seasons, days, and years.”
New beginnings and seasons were made right from the initial beginning. Marking seasons and times and days and years. This is why we have new beginnings.
If new beginnings weren’t important if there’s nothing special about the new year then why would God dedicate a whole day (the fourth day) to create heavenly bodies whose functions are to indicate times and seasons?
It is very important then, to know these seasons and what God intends to do in them in your life.
Keeping the vessel clean
Apostle Paul refers to Christians as 'Jars of Clay,' (2 Corinthians 4:7), but if we know anything about vessels - especially clay vessels - it's how much they attract dust and need to be kept clean. May this Bible study open your heart to all the ways you may have been keeping yourself untidy and unfit for God's use and all the ways you can correct that, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
Deep in Him (Worship)
Here is not a place we come to ask, but a place we come to sit.
To sit with Abba and sing our worship, as fine fragrance, to the Heavens.
You will find food for your spirit here, and a refreshment for your soul.
When you eat with the King, you can only expect to be FILLED. 🤎
Authority in Intimacy
Today's episode explores the authority of every Christian and how it is found in deeper intimacy with the Father. 'Intimacy is the seat of authority in the life of every child of God.'
This is such a sensitive topic that God has laid in my heart to teach for a while now, and I say it is sensitive because not everyone is comfortable talking about the things they are addicted to, or even admitting to themselves that they have an addiction to something, thereby fighting it themselves, and having to suffer and struggle in silence, which often time leads to them not overcoming this addiction. This sermon seeks to address addictions and how you can battle it the Godly way.
I beg of you, open up your heart, let this message sink, we are open to receiving questions about this on our Instagram @jarsofclay.
May God guide your understanding in Jesus name (Amen).
The Divine Leading of God
People think that to be led by God, you have to encounter Him in a big way, He has to come sit at the footstool of your bed with sun-rays entering your room and blinding your eyes, that you have to hear Him call out your name three times like He did, Samuel.
To be divinely led by God, you have to open up your heart to His several methods of communication, and not just the style or manner you are expecting or being stuck up on.
There are two categories of people when it comes to being divinely led, and this episode addresses them both, so please give this a listen.
I pray that God opens the eyes of your understanding, and he helps you understand this in the way He would want (Amen).
One body in Christ
One body in Christ: just like you cannot be whole without the complete working of your whole body parts, you are not complete without your fellow believer. Follow this sermon to understand what it means to truly be one body in Christ.
The Call of God Upon Your Life
In today's Bible study, we reflect on what it means to be called by God and what such a call demands from every Christian.
