Tips for choosing a sound local church

 Tips for choosing a sound local church by Toyosi Adegunle Choosing the right church can be a difficult and draining process in reality. Whether you are new to the faith and looking to settle in a local church or you've been a believer for a while and you're looking to change your church due to several reasons, it is important to consider major factors before choosing a church. Why? Your choice can make or mar your spiritual growth as a believer. The fact that you're ready says something great about you, you understand that the essence of the church is fellowship and you don't plan on neglecting that. Kudos to you! Colossians 3:16 says Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. There are several churches in the world, all of which make a beautiful part of the body of Christ. This variety can contribute to your difficulty in choosin

4 practical tips for your new year resolutions

4 practical tips for your new year resolutions by Toyosi Adegunle 20 days into a new year. Can I still say Happy New Year? I guess so. I hope it’s been a great year for you and yours. Every new year, we all write resolutions, make new plans, create new affirmations and more. It’s a constant MO and it’s great, to be honest. It’s important to make plans at every point in time and most importantly be disciplined enough to bring them to life and stick to them.  Let’s talk about resolutions: There’s a universal dislike for resolutions because of the perceived school of thought that it’s just a facade and people hardly ever do the things they plan to do. There’s nothing wrong with creating a list of things you’re picking and dropping in a new year but do you have what it takes to actually do them?  Firstly, writing a resolution is not a bad or weird thing to do. It just means you are very reflective of your life, habits and processes and would love to change your life or make it better. Reso

Prayers as we end the year

Prayers as we end the year by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun I can't believe this year is wrapping up already, we said Happy New Year last week not too long ago and now we're about to say Happy New Year again. We give God all the thanks for another year. You may be thinking, why should I be thankful after everything I experienced this year? And I know that feeling too well. Be that as it may, it is a biblical instruction to remain thankful. There's a lot to say thank you for. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition) Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]. So yes, give thanks to the God of your salvation. Thanksgiving is good for your soul, it helps you remain grounded and grateful.  I love to plan stuff and I wanted to share some of the prayer points that God has laid on my heart for the coming year. I hope y

Why should christians not celebrate christmas

Why should Christians not celebrate Christmas? by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hi all, long time no blog entry. This multi-media content creator thing is a lot of work. Between creating content on Youtube , Instagram and TikTok , I'm hardly able to create written content. Also, a lot of you prefer video or audio content anyways and you're happy with what I've been churning out recently. For those that are still fond of reading, this is dedicated to you. Scroll down to watch the video, if that's what you prefer. So the question today is, why should Christians not celebrate Christmas? The first time I heard "Christmas is a pagan celebration" was in year 3 in university. I was so upset by the idea that a fellow believer will speak so poorly about the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. I mean, we mortals often have our loved ones gather around to celebrate us annually. Why can't we have a gathering centred around the birth of the most important person ever? These are th
