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.

WALK OF SHAME...WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN

Her leg ached.
Her waist ached.
Her neck ached.
Dinma was all shades of uncomfortable and didn't know which part of herself to rely on. She turned her neck in quick rotations in an attempt to reduce the ache but it did her no good. She cursed within. This was supposed to be a fun and happy day, not one filled with aches from all parts of her body. The fact that She had been an usher did no good for her. Two hours is a long time to have been standing. She sighed resignedly. The girl beside her turned and smiled at her sympathetically, she managed a weak smile in return. The Security officials were still perambulating, disappearing and reappearing, she dared not sit. If she wasn't spotted from the podium, the officials would certainly see her. Only one person had been excused to sit because of illness and it had been announced to avoid display of smart stupidity.
She picked the ceremony booklet from her seat for the umpteenth time to check progress. There was still three pages …

DEALING WITH HURT IN RELATIONSHIPS

If you are in a relationship; be it the one you were born into or the one you created, pain is inevitable. Simple reason being that we are humans, mortals, and it is in human nature to cause pain, to make mistakes. Even when it feels like the right thing, like a situation where you lie to protect someone you love, they can still find it hurtful because of differing views. Even if a person dedicates thier life to being and doing good, because of ''differing views'', something they do would come off as hurtful to someone in thier life.
Hurt and pain is inevitable. That's the simple truth. We only just learn how to deal with such times when it comes because it will.
