Day 7: MY STATEMENT OF JESUS

Bible reading: Matthew 16:13-18; Psalm 27: 1-4  Have you ever been in a relationship-definition moment- when you’ve probably been around someone for a while and then they pop the ‘what are we?’ question… Or it could be the more famous, leave me an anonymous message.  I think our reading today was Jesus in one of those moments with His disciples- What are we? What do you think of me? Just like Jesus asked His disciples, I believe He still asks…

Day 6: TRACING FOOTPRINTS

Bible reading: John 13:1-17; Philippians 2:5-11  One of my most interesting sights when I keenly observe human traffic at random locations is how I see young kids scampering after their parents, trying their best to walk like their parents. You see some kids target each of the steps their parents have taken, trying to plant their little feet in the marks. You see others working- or walking- hard to match up with their parent’s pace.  Have you noticed that on…

Day 5: TRIAL VERSIONS

Bible reading: John 6: 1–51  I was never really a game freak growing up, but like many Nigerian kids, I can relate well with the concept of a ‘trial version’. Essentially, a trial version is designed to engage you, give you a feel of the real and make you want the real by emphasizing the limitations of the trial experience.  Maybe you can relate to ‘trial version’ experiences in life. Maybe a job that seemed great, but was never really…

Day 4: OF PRICES AND PAYMENTS 2

Bible reading: Genesis 22:1-14, John 3:10-17  Have you ever been around someone who is particularly skilled in the art of asking questions?  That’s usually a child or a lady: A child, because they don’t ever have all those adult, restrains about what should be said or what shouldn’t be. They just ask it all as it comes to their mind.  ‘Mum, why does this uncle always drink coke when he comes to our house? Does he not have coke in…

Day 3: OF PRICES AND PAYMENTS 1

Bible reading: Hebrews 10:1-18; Romans 6:20-23  There’s always rancour and agitation when worker’s entitlements aren’t paid as at when due. In this part of the world, one of the most famous words you encounter is ‘strike’. The Bible teaches clearly that a worker is worthy of his wages.  No one wants delays in payments. And no one expects a lesser payment.  And it’s the same with sin. It has a payment reward for all its workers.  For sin pays its…

Day 2: TAKE THE MERCY, ACCEPT THE HELP

Bible reading: Genesis 3:6 -21, John 3:16-17  It doesn’t take much to notice- just a look around will convince of the huge problem’s existent in our world. Humanity is absolutely needy. I cringe many times at the extents of the problems people live with from day to day.  Governments disappoint, economies crack, institutions fail, systems are corrupt, injustice abounds… You could go on and on. Abuse. Failure. Sickness. Poverty. Hunger. Problems everywhere. We live on a fallen planet.  That weight…

Day 1: GOD IS LOVE DRIVEN

Bible reading: John 3:10-21, Romans 5:6-11 I think of how that we’re all surrounded by so many relationships in our lives. From one relationship to the other though, the core motivations differ. Sometimes, it’s a business interest or a workplace relationship; sometimes it’s a neighbour or a colleague. Sometimes, it’s borne out of the need to get a project done. I think it’s particularly refreshing when we remind ourselves that God is driven by love, in reaching out to us:…
