THE GOSPEL IS NOT FOR SUNDAY MORNING ALONE


This blog title is a line from one of the songs of a popular Nigerian gospel artist Buchi.
The gospel is not for Sunday morning
Sunday morning alone
Each and every day that the lord has made
We have to give thanks and praise to the lord
Almighty father, papa never tire

Okay, back to the post before we get carried away. As the song writer says, the gospel is really not for Sunday morning alone. A lot of us only remember our bibles only on Sunday; a lot of us only remember God on Sunday unless we are going through some difficulty. Well, I’m here to tell you that
It is not only on Sundays that you read your bible
It is not only on Sunday that you fellowship with your maker
It is not only on Sundays that you bridle your tongue
It is not only on Sunday that you go to church (remember that fellowship with the brethren enhances the sprit)
It is not only on Sunday that you dress decently
It is not only on Sunday that you post decent write-ups on Facebook
It is not only on Sunday that you caution yourself against mocking someone
It is not only on Sunday that you abstain from immoral relations
It is not only on Sunday that you abstain from doing wrong
Yes the bible said, observe the Sabbath day to keep it holy but it didn’t say, desecrate other days. While talking with a friend a while back, he said that during his quiet time, the Holy Spirit ministered to him an insightful truth; that the presence of God is mostly always with us in our unguarded moments. He doesn’t only come in church when we are in religious regalia with a sanctimonious face, praising him like he is the only best thing that has happened to us. We are his children and he has put His angels charge over us, therefore He is always with us.
So if you are a Sunday-Sunday Christian, you go to church only on Sunday, do good only on Sunday, read your bible only on Sunday, the week is for you to run your life as you want, you only acknowledge his supremacy on Sundays, then my dear, stop wasting your precious time. You are not a Christian at all.
We can’t keep speaking harsh and immoral words every day, sleep with our numerous girlfriends during the week, wear the skimpiest dresses and attract more souls to the devil’s kingdom and then on Sunday, we run to church to praise God. Bible said that the prayer of a sinner is an abomination to God.
Dust your bible and develop a quiet time every day with Him, join a department in church and serve in the household of God, have morning and night devotions even if it is 20 minutes, pray more, worship more, take out time and evangelize to people. Don’t be too busy for God that you can only spare Sunday for him. Anything worth doing is worth doing well.
 The gospel is not for Sunday morning alone, God’s words and commandments is not for Sunday morning alone, it is for each and every day of our life that the lord has made.

THREE TIPS FOR DEALING WITH 'STRANGERS'

Before a person became a friend, he/she was a 'stranger', then maybe an acquaintance before attaining friendship. In life, many circumstances or situations tend to take us away from family and friends that we are so used to and safe around such as NYSC, industrial training, internship, law school, medical school, competitions or even relocation.

SEARCHING #7

'Emeka is that you?' I asked expecting otherwise

'Nope' answered a female voice.

 Ha! I knew no girl, so who could that be.

'Who then?' I said getting up.

'It’s dera your classmate.'

I didn’t know any dera but it would be rude bombarding her with questions with the door to her face plus I didn’t even know anyone in my class.
I opened the door but it was so dark that I couldn’t see her face.

'Ah! It’s dark already, I didn’t know that. Please come in.'

'Thank you' she said stepping in. I was beginning to think that you were dead or something worse.

'What could be worse than dead?'

'I don’t know' she shrugged.

I now remembered her. The overly outspoken girl in the class who somehow, always had her manners with her but would always interfere when not wanted. Emeka would write me down for not knowing her name. Everyone knew her because of her interference spirit. She had not interfered in my business because I had not cr…

THANKFUL FOR HIS HELP

My heart is filled with gratitude. At the end of last year, I wasn’t in a good place. There was this heart-gnawing fear. A new phase was coming in my life and the uncertainty of the future just ate me away. My relationship with God was on a zig-zag lane and the downward lane seemed to last for longer periods than the upward. I was honestly so scared about the future. A lot of what ifs.
