#New Article : Who Christ made you to be

You have unlimited possibilities and capabilities in you. As a believer you must know that The Greater one lives inside of you. He seeks to gain expression through you.

Everything that makes God God lives on your inside. Acknowledge this each day! Let Him gain expression by speaking His finished works.

The Greater asset He gave you is your *BRAIN* and as a Believer know that you have THE MIND OF CHRIST!

Don’t neglect the use of your brain for stupid and senseless ordinances!

God loves you the way you are ans He died for you when you were still a sinner. He didn’t wait for you to repent which implies that He has not given up on you. You have not been rejected!

Nothing can separate His love for you not even yourself, know that He loves you more than you can ever imagine. His love for you is CONSTANT!

So Drop your religious beliefs. Let go off those useless legalistic mindset.

Your offering cannot change you! Your Tithe cannot change you!

Your fasting cannot change you! Your so called Spiritual Father cannot change you!

Your church cannot change you!

Yes! Nothing on the outside can change you. CHRIST CHANGED YOU COMPLETELY WHEN HE LEFT ALL OF HIS GLORY TO COME TAKE YOUR PLACE!

ChristianLifestyle : “ The Art of Being a Great Friend” By Bernard Kelvin Clive

Friendship is a very important bond . Great minds all over the world agree that having the right friends can go a long way to pave a way of success in whatever endeavour we may find ourselves.

Having the right friend is good ,but being the right friend is even better . Learn Ways to be a Friend People Love to Have –

1. Know yourself: Yes, it all begins with you. You( really need to)know who you are. What makes you tick, your likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses. If you take the time to understudy yourself, it better prepares you to handle your relationships.

You will not be taken aback by many things that your friends will reveal about you. It helps you to put your best self forward – your strengths over weakness. “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.” – Proverbs 27:17

2. Share your values: Be truthful! Be open and upfront with your values right from the beginning. Let your friends know what your values are in life – what’s important to you. Your standards that you wouldn’t compromise on. This prevents friends from violating your values – your prized possessions. To one person the top values could be integrity, faith, etc. to another honesty, gratitude.

As part of sharing your values be honest with your friends, let them know when they go wrong or (against your) set values – rebuke in love. You should learn to gracefully correct your friends when they go wrong. “A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.” – Proverbs 17:17

3. Offer a helping hand: Be the first to look out for a need of your friends and find ways to help them with it, in ways that you can. The caveat is: don’t become God in their lives, just be a channel to be used.

Note that you cannot meet every friend’s need but you can offer little supports to illustrate your thoughtfulness. “Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable?” – Proverbs 20:6

4. Keep in touch: Make it a point to regularly check up on your friends – call, text, social media, a visit, etc. any act that shows your friends are important to you. Keep in touch not because you will need something from them someday but because you care. It’s nice to be nice.

When was the last time you reconnected with a friend? “There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother. “- Proverbs 18:24

5. Respect privacy: Some things are private and should be kept as such. You may be privy to some private stuff about your friends, just keep it as such. Being a friend requires that you also give people room to be whom they want to be. You don’t need to always be in their space.

Learn to set your own boundaries and also respect that of your friends. Be wary of gossips. “A troublemaker plants seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends.” – Proverbs 16:28

6. Forgive first: Hey, as friends you are surely going to step on the toes of each other every now and then. Sometimes deliberately, other times unintentionally. All of these form part of the friendship growing and bonding process. It’s how you handle those little offenses that matter. Have a big heart to be the first to forgive when offenses do happen.

Make room for blunders, we are all not perfect and will err every now and then. Don’t hold grudges, once you forgive make it a habit of not referencing those mishaps. “Don’t befriend angry people or associate with hot-tempered people, or you will learn to be like them and endanger your soul.” – Proverbs 22:24-25

7. Invest in your friends and celebrate them: Friendship is a lifelong investment into each other. The investment comes in various ways – your time, commitment, money, emotional support, etc. If your friend is into any business or project, patronize their services and additionally refer others to them.

Don’t forget little things like the birthdays of your friends, anniversaries, their kid’s graduation etc. Any of life’s milestone and achievements worth celebrating.

Join them celebrate, send a card, a message, a call, etc. Additionally, be there for them in their trying times and grieving moments. When the storms of life hit them,) don’t abandon them. Those are the time they need you most.

“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” – Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Now it’s your turn to be the best friend someone needs!

“A Friend who attends to you only at his spare-time is not worth your prime-time.”

― Bernard Kelvin Clive

Moving GOD or Moving Towards GOD ?

Many Christians have been made to think God is up there in heaven , maybe ticked off at man ,not willing stretch his hand towards us to bless us . We must therefore by our prayers provoke him to move ! There are some preachers who have made a ministry around this thinking . They suggest that God can , but isn’t willing to do anything on earth unless man sends forth prayers to God .This thinking is very dangerous because it makes God the variable and puts the blame on Him.

If our prayers doesn’t seem answered ,we make statements like “oh maybe God does not want me to be healed “, or “God is angry with me for something “. This is wrong.

Contrary to this popular belief , prayer does not move God neither does our faith . He’s not moved by anything we do here on earth. The only time he moved was when his son came to die for our sins .Hear this and be astonished,God isn’t blessing anyone anymore . He isn’t healing people any longer . He already did that 2000 years ago .

1 Peter 2:24 says

By whose stripes ye were healed ( past ).

What glad tidings for such words to fall on our hearts . When we understand this our faith will go through the roof. Because it is easier to believe in something you already have than believe in something you are yet to receive .

When we believe God has already done his part and that we are already blessed ,the rest of our Christian lives would be spent renewing our minds to accept what has already been deposited in our spirits .

We don’t need God to move .We rather have to move towards God . Moving towards God implies taking the blame off God . It means acknowledging what God has already done and receiving it by faith .

God has already provided everything we will ever need by grace . He has already blessed us with all spiritual blessings. In our spirits we are blessed beyond measure . We don’t lack a thing . The reason you don’t see God’s provisions in your life isn’t because God is withholding them or is waiting for you to pray or serve him perfectly . It is just because you haven’t received by faith what he’s already provided. Faith is simply a positive responds to what God has already provided by grace .

God does not need to move in your life ! He isn’t the one who is stuck . He moved over 2000 years ago by the death of Jesus Christ . He isn’t waiting on you to put up with your best behaviour before he blesses you. He’s already done that.

The book of Ephesians was written from the perspective that it is already done.

In Ephesians 1:3 , it says

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

The scriptures didn’t say God is going to bless us . No ! God has already deposited every blessing we will ever need in our born again spirits . It’s a done deal !

You don’t have to pray for more of God’s blessings . That’s just unbelief. Praying for God’s blessings mean you are doubting what he has said in his word .

Take the blame off God. God is not the problem , we are !

5 Habits that can improve your christian life – Kenneth Bray

A lot of christian strive for change .Most Christians try to get out of a particular sin, Overcome an emotional challenge or simply change from bad habits .

Sadly many of us fail and give up along the way and never actually achieve our goal. Christian principles shows us that real change first takes place on the inside .

When we plant the seed(Word of God ) In our spirits ,then this seed will in turn produce the change that we need.

If you have been searching for ways to improve upon your Christianity , or transform your life ,then this post is for you .

In today’s post ,I share some key habits that I believe can improve your Christianity tremendously. Enjoy !

Meditate on God’s word

The bible admonishes us to abide in the Lord which also means we are to remain or make his presence our home .
You wouldn’t have to be in church only for you to ‘abide’ in the Lord . We can abide when we Read the word, think about it throughout the day, listen to a sermon and meditate on it through out the day . is very possible to think on God’s word through out our day.

Live life by faith

Habakkuk 2:4the righteous will live by faith.”
Living life by faith simply means having a positive attitude towards everything and every moment in our lives.

Look out for others

We will not live fulfilled lives until we learn to genuinely love others as much as Christ loved us .

That is the whole essence of our faith .Without love ,soul winning is meaningless ,without love , everything we do in the name of Christianity would amount to nothing.
Be there for someone .

Do something valuable to help someone. Be a problem solver . Make sure your existence makes someone happy.

Talk to God throughout the day .

Instead of complaining and telling people about your problems ,why not talk to God instead ?

It is not only possible to do this all day but also necessary. Having a good conversation with God,not the religiously clichéd method ,but genuinely opening up to him and thanking him for his goodness and blessing can cause us to receive God’s best for us.

Serve with your talent

Putting your talent to use does not only help others but yourself too . This helps you to improve upon your gift.You will need to Serve people with your talent . The best place to serve with your talent is the church .

Identify something in the church that needs to change or you think can be improved by your expertise and then start .Be proactive ,and don’t wait for anyone to tell you before.
