After a Christian has accepted the gift of salvation through faith in the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and as he or she grows and matures in the Lord (continuing sanctification), there will be some changes in how he or she thinks. As a Christian, we find that our hearts (soul) grows more and more in agreement with God and His law (which is spiritual), but our flesh will still want to go the way of the world. All true born-again Christians have a split personality, so to speak. And even when you work not to sin (you don’t work to stay saved), sin still happens along your path of Christian growth. Paul sums it up quite well in Romans 7:21-25 KJV. This submenu is a compendium of profound, intense essays that are concerned about our heart’s knowledge about God’s love which grows in our Christian walk. They are tailored to aid understanding from the heart, the effects of sin and lawlessness on ourselves and others.

My heart has been a little sad. Many tragedies have happened this past few weeks. So many families are broken and in despair, and my heart aches for them and I pray that God would comfort them in a way only He can. But something else has made me really sad; something that should not …

I was jolted back to reality as the train came to its final stop, which was my destination. The icy wind blowing against my face overwhelmed my sleepy eyes, and my feet went from walking to running to ward off the cold as I embarked on my twenty minutes’ walk to work. January was such …

My husband and I started 2018 hopeful and full of high expectations. This was going to be “the year.” We had a clear picture in our minds of the specific things we wanted to see, and we had no doubt that God was going to do it. Fast forward to December 2018, and a completely …

March 2018. It takes seconds literally for the course of your life to be altered. I mean seconds; one phone call, letter, knock on the day, you name it. I remember going to the health centre for a check-up and within minutes of being there, I was referred to the emergency department. My year was …

The wait was the hardest part. Each passing day brought with it a certain kind of dread. What would the outcome be? What would be our fate? All sorts of scenarios played out in my mind, and time seemed to have come to a halt. It was a nerve-wracking wait. I would catch myself staring …

What do you do when you have exhausted all options humanly possible and when it feels like you have hit a brick wall and there is no way to surmount it? What do you do when you just don’t know what to do? This past week, I have literally felt this way. I have worried …

I have so many fond memories of growing up and lately it has been the little things that have left me feeling nostalgic. Let’s attribute it to missing my native home. So, when I found some bunches of broom at my local African shop a year ago, it triggered a whole range of emotions. I …

By Martina Oboh  I have always been fascinated by colours and how one shade transits into another. White becomes cream, eggshell, ivory, Navajo white, vanilla then onyx, black olive, charcoal grey, jet and eventually black. White is, of course, the lightest possible colour and black is the darkest. Every other colour hovers between these two …

I thought about a few things and this is what I came up with… When the Lord says, “remember not the former things,” He is not only talking of bad things or losing positions that you have been. He is saying remember not your past victories. Look up to the new that I am bringing. There …

It is a truism that the subject of giving cannot be insignificant in the attainment of financial prosperity. By way of by Biblical allusion, Jesus said thus: “it is better to give than to receive.” It is not an overstatement to assert that the blessing of giving is immeasurable. It has been confirmed that one …
