Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness

If you follow me on twitter for a while now, you will see that I always talk about how powerful your righteousness consciousness is compared to sin consciousness. I often roll my eyes when I see people discussing if something is sin or not sin. Do you know someone that is always talking about what is sin or isn’t sin? Or have you found yourself saying “I must be careful not to sin today, God help me not to sin” every day? This is being sin-conscious! You have not sinned yet but you are over-focused on the power of sin rather than the righteousness of God that you are as a believer.
Hebrews 10:2-3 (TPT) For if animal sacrifices could once and for all eliminate sin, they would have ceased to be offered and the worshipers would have clean consciences. Instead, once was not enough so by the repetitive sacrifices year after year, the worshipers were continually reminded of their sins, with their hearts still impure.

Is grace a license to sin?

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. I hope you are doing very well. The feedback from my last post about eternal security has been amazing. I know many people still opine that others especially young believers use the doctrine of eternal security as a means to live a life that isn’t fruitful as a believer. The truth is this, anyone that understands what grace truly is will never use it as an excuse to live a questionable life. This is why today’s post is focusing on grace as the liberty from sin rather than the excuse to sin.
Romans 6:1-2 (TPT) So what do we do, then? Do we persist in sin so that God’s kindness and grace will increase? What a terrible thought! We have died to sin once and for all, as a dead man passes away from this life. So how could we live under sin’s rule a moment longer?  Or have you forgotten that all of us who were immersed into union with Jesus, the Anointed One, were immersed into union with his death?Sharing in his death by our baptism means that …

Is there anything like eternal security?

Is there anything like eternal security?  We are going to talk about something that bothers a lot of Christians. Many of whom are veterans but can’t answer this simple question with all boldness; “Do you know if you are going to make heaven?”
The essence of this post is to explore if there is any scriptural truth to this doctrine. I pray that the eyes of your understanding be enlightened as you read in Jesus name, Amen. What does eternal security mean?Eternal security is a doctrine which states that a believer’s salvation once received, cannot be lost. It entails that a believer’s salvation has an eternal nature as it is a gift which is secured by one party (Jesus Christ). What does it mean to be saved?In order to understand the doctrine of Eternal Security, we must delve into what security means. In this context, security means salvation.

Salvation means deliverance, safety, preservation or rescue, for one to be saved, the person must have initially been in danger.
Let’s look into the Bib…

Is Christianity a religion?

Is Christianity a religion?

When we fill forms we are asked questions such as male or female, Muslim or Christian, Black or White and other questions to categorise who we are. At the end of the day, we are given a tag. Based on all the forms I have filled in my life; I would be referred to as a black Christian Female. This means that all I have to do is tick yes to Christian and boom, I’m Christian. What is religion?Merriam Webster offers 3 definitions to religion in the context of our conversation today: the service and worship of God or the supernaturalcommitment or devotion to religious faith or observancea personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practicesThere is so much more to Christianity that can not be placed in these boxes (definitions). Is Christianity, service and worship to the one true God? Absolutely, Yes! Is Christianity a commitment to the Christ-based faith? Yes! Is Christianity a system of attitudes, beliefs and practices?

Dead works versus good works

Dead works versus good works

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. I want to use this medium to say thank you for always being here, it means the world to me. So last week, Favour and I talked about righteousness as a free gift of God. I hope this helped you reflect deeply about this notion of being righteous. If your head ever gets too big about how far you have come in the things of the kingdom, always remind yourself that everything is by God’s grace! There is nothing powered or inspired by you.
In my last post, I talked about how praying, fasting, serving in church, and evangelising can all be dead works if the doer has not accepted Jesus into their lives. It does not matter how much tithe you pay, how long you have had a big position at your church or how many people you have led to Christ. God doesn’t have any business with you unless you have business with Christ. It's all dead works without eternal value. How can we define dead works? In simple terms, dead works are any of …
