Basic tips for spiritual maturity (my growth story)

Basic tips for spiritual maturity (my growth story) Spiritual maturity should be a desire for every Christian. You can’t be in the same place you were when you first received Christ. You just have to level up! The truth of the matter is that your level of growth has nothing to do with the number of years you’ve been in the faith. Additionally, it doesn’t occur randomly. You have to do something to trigger this growth. You can’t just sit there and do your bare minimum with Christ and expect growth to fall upon you. You have to intentionally invest in your relationship with Him like you invest in your relationship with anyone else.
Let me share my spiritual growth story with you;
I’ve been a Christian for as long as I can remember as a virtue of being exposed to Christ at a young age. My dad is a pastor. Most of the things I learnt about God was from devotion, Sunday school classes and Christian Religion Knowledge (CRK) course in my Christian secondary boarding school. I knew pretty basic …

10 prayers for your future spouse

10 prayers for your future spouse
Hi everyone, I trust you are doing well. Welcome back to my blog and thank you so much for clicking my link. I pray that God grants all your heart desires in Jesus Name, Amen. If you follow me on social media, you’d see that I always talk about great marriages and “constructing” your future spouse in prayers. I know the topic of marriage is not pleasing to people nowadays because of the stories of heartbreak, betrayal and pain that are constantly circulated on social media. Those stories we hear or perhaps of people will know is very capable of changing our countenance towards marriage. I know people that are paranoid about ending up with a pretender or not entirely interested in getting married. It's sad because marriage is still an honourable thing created by God to emulate the relationship between Christ and the church. God is still in the business of making beautiful love stories, don’t let the experiences of others change your mind about it.

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 …
