Making The Most of the Lockdown

You know, in the midst of this pandemic some people are actually smiling to the bank? I’m sure Zoom is having the best boom ever! I can’t count how many meetings I have attended on the Zoom platform in the last month! My daughter’s school actually uses the Zoom platform to deliver some of their lectures. There are others too. Food vendors, delivery and logistics companies, pharmacies, grocery stores, and the list goes on. They are able to rise up to the occasion and serve the people who are locked down and desperate for supplies.

Part III – The Madness

She was too stunned to think. She didn’t know what to do to stop him and tried to evade his blows, without success.

He kept shouting at the top of his voice and attacking her. When she lost her balance and fell, she remembered that the steward was around and started shouting at the top of her voice.

Sadness & Joy – Part 1 (The Meeting)

He looked around to be sure everything was going well, before heading to his designated table to have dinner. The band leader chose that moment to change the beat and started playing a very upbeat tune, a mixture of afrobeat and pop, very African. Out of the corner of his eye, the captain noticed a couple at the next table get up to join the dancing couples on the floor. He did not pay much attention and continued with his meal. It had been like any other trip and he was glad that it was ending uneventfully, especially as his experience had taught him that anything could happen at sea. He had   learnt never to heave the sigh of relief until the last passenger had safely disembarked.

Stewardship & the After Life

This is where our diligent stewardship comes up. The excuse that we were not taught will not bail us out on the final day. Neither will the fact that we attended a liberal church have any bearing. We have the Holy Spirit within us. We have the word of God.

Praise in the Desert!

God delights in our praises. And He still wants to hear our voices lifted in praise, whether we are reciting psalms written ages ago or we are bringing our own poems, as a sacrifice of our lips and hearts, in thanksgiving and praise to His name.

How To Fail Or Not

If you are in school or taking classes, it is very easy to fail.Just don’t attend classes and don’t study anything. You are guaranteed to fail. But if you want to succeed, you have to attend classes religiously, actually listen to the lecturer, take notes, ask questions, read up, work on assignments, submit by the deadline, prepare for tests and exams! It takes a whole lot of work to succeed. You have to sweat. You have to work. It doesn’t come easy.

Life’s Uncertainties

Such was the excitement and anticipation with which we went to bed on Friday, February 15, 2019, only to wake up the next morning to hear news of postponement! I got a text message on my phone around 5.30 a.m. saying the elections had been postponed.

Why Pain?

Surely, nobody enjoys suffering or wants to suffer. However, if we are to objectively consider the history of Christianity, we would discover that the records show tremendous and lasting pain experienced by professing Christians through the ages. Why then would we expect our Christianity to be pain and trouble free?

Nabal Revisited

So, you don’t have a Nabal in your life? But do you have a Judas or Demas, or a Saul or Absalom? Don’t mind the name. The evils that they perpetrate come from the same source. We do not wrestle against flesh and blood. Our warfare is against principalities and powers, against rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. That is why the Bible says we should put on the whole armour of God that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
