Beep…beep…I’m alive

(photo credit: justrideplymouth.com)

If we are to break down Jesus’ ministry into phases, we will probably all agree on these three: Death (Crucifixion), Resurrection and Ascension. Also, as many of us may be know, as believers we also have these three phases:

  • Death: Romans 6:3 “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?”
  • Resurrection: Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
  • Ascension: Ephesians 2:6 “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”

So if we have “passed from death to life”, why do we still experience some things? Why do we still struggle with some old habits? Continue reading

Redeeming the time

This is a guest post 🙂 Be blessed.

**********************

The title of this write-up was taken from Ephesians 5:16 and I’m not a spiri-coco guy but I heard this message last week in church and thought to share it because I felt a strong sense of conviction. You have probably heard countless messages on time, even attended courses on time management, yet you still feel you’re sub-optimizing your time. Well I will make this short and brief.

1. Maximum time you have on earth is 120years. Genesis 6:3

“And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for he that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years”

Yes but what about eternal life and not dying? The key word here is flesh, the capsule your soul resides cannot exist beyond 120years maximum.

2. On average, most people will get to live for 70-80years. Psalm 90:10

“The days of our years are three score years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength, labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away”

The maximum time is 120years and on average you get to live 70-80years – let it sink slowly.

3. The days are evil. 2 Timothy 3:1.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come”

So what’s the point of this – WAKE UP! You sleep a quarter of the time anyway

Don’t live like you’re immortal yet.

Always remember the day you return to meet your maker – so make peace with Him. Be more spiritual even though it may seem uncool. God is a Spirit and those that are His must access Him via the spiritual channel.

Maintain your godliness, believe you me it’s difficult in this world where we all want to be conformist.

“Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof, from such turn away”– 2 Timothy 3:5

Your time is limited, you ALONE are accountable for it and there’s an afterlife. Seek Him, there’s a reason you’re here, FIND it and give it your best shot.

Yours sincerely

In memory of John

As he walked to the phone booth, many thoughts ran through his head: June had always been a special month. Three members of his immediate family including him were born in that month. He never really did understand the concept of celebrating birthdays though- it was just the next day after 365 days. But oh well, social customs demanded it. That’s the reason he was even going to the phone booth at all. It was one of those member’s birthday.

Why he had to walk to a phone booth to place a call was beyond him; C’mon, this is the 21st century! But that was one of the rules of the land- the land they had forced him to come even against his will. Parents! *rolls eyes*

He walked faster; Continue reading

Take time to show you care

  • 2005, He (A) spoke with him (B) on Sunday; he (B) passed away on Tuesday.
  • 2013, He saw her on Saturday; she passed away on Monday.
  • 2013, He spoke with her on Sunday; she passed away on Tuesday

These are true accounts of different people who have lost a loved one. Sometimes, it comes as a shocker. Other times it is expected. Either ways, the pain is real.

Whatever the case may be, whatever the cause of the rift may be, just lay it all down and take time out to show the ones you love that you care.

Food for thought:

The one who has passed away has no more worries: Eternity is certain, location is the question. But the ones who are left alive are the ones who feel the pain and the sorrow.

Life nugget:

1 Corinthians 15:19 “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.”
