Growth & Power! 

Many Christians backslide because this truth is not clearly taught. Some are unable to stand against temptation or their old nature. 

Though they strive to do their best to fight against sin and to serve God, they have no strength. They have never really grasped the secret that the Lord Jesus will continue His work in the believer every day from heaven. But there is one condition: Time alone with the Lord Jesus each day is the indispensable condition of growth and power.

Read Matthew 11:25–30

The Second Truth The Church Needs For Revival

Wake up to the need for holiness!

“‘Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.’ In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.” 2 Tim 2:19-21

God only serves revival on clean plates, so we must purify our hearts! If there is sin in the camp we need to address it. If there is sin in our lives we need to confess it.

We need to have people in our lives that keep us accountable in these areas so that, together, we can walk in purity. As James 5:16 reminds us, “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

As my old youth ministry professor used to say, “We confess to God to be forgiven. We confess to each other to get healed.” May we have churches that encourage this kind of relational reality checks so that we get beyond the surface of “everything’s fine” to the raw struggles underneath that all of us have. As we do we can live an increasingly holy life that leverages the power of our prayers with heaven! Again, as James reminds us, “the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

Let’s wake up to the need for holiness!

Seek God by Nadine U. 

Happy Friday People of God,

The following article was written by Nadina Uwayezu.


We often get into our lives and get so busy. Yes it is true we are trying our best to have a good life as we shape our future. but the good things only comes from the Lord, when he blesses, he abundantly over showers our daily lives with beautiful things and unexpected breakthroughs. It is very important to take time off our hectic and chaotic life to seek the Lord so we can have his blessings through everything we achieve. But first seek the kingdom, when we wake up the first thing first thing I would love is to do is PRAY. The rest of the day is placed in safe hands, and whatever comes our way ;God will helps us to handle them calmly and without complaints . I pray that God’s mighty power strengthen our will to seeking the Lord before starting our daily routines.

Humility vs Cowardice

Amazing how often some professing follower of Christ will take his place before the cameras of an unbelieving world and cravenly declare Christ is wrong on some subject or other, and that the new poll driven, sin pandering, populist view is right.
They say with a straight face, and twisted thinking, that Jesus may have taught that He created the world in 6 days but “experts” in white lab coats say otherwise and so we must bow to unbelieving scientists rather than the King of Glory; or that while Jesus clearly calls pre marital, extra marital or gay “marital” sex, hell deserving sin; we know better today and Jesus just doesn’t understand the new “modern”, “tolerant” view.
Or, they will say, Christ may have had an exclusive view of Himself and His gospel, but “everyone” agrees this is wrong and all faith traditions lead to God.
Incredibly, these religious charlatans will present their views as the height of open minded mercy and humility… But it is NOT humility for a supposed believer to trample upon the word of God in order to exalt the faulty, everchanging opinions of frail humanity; it is, in fact, the epitome of pride, man pleasing cowardice and perverted pragmatism.
True humility is standing on, and unapologetically proclaiming, God’s holy, inerrant, inspired and sufficient word, while, when required, exposing the sinking, stinking, thinking of unregenerate men… especially if these men falsely present themselves as pillars in the Church.
Mark 8:38 Jesus said; “Whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father, with the holy angels.

ATTENTION Dear bloggers, A CALL TO SHARE THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS.

It’s been only a month that I have joined this medium of blogging. I was inevitably flabbergasted by its popular use by countless people. I have tried to blog two years ago and I thought I knew what I was going to do but It turned out to be utterly impossible for various reasons (I won’t state them). I am under impression that this thing is really utilized by a lot of people, Christians and non-Christians, around many parts of the world with different motives.

Today, I have an indelible question on my mind – and it seems like I can’t get over it. What do Christians blog about? I like to talk to people directly and explicitly – I feel like it makes more sense than talking ABOUT people. If YOU are a Christian, what are YOUR posts about? It really grieves my soul when I come across posts where Christians tell what they have had on their breakfast – Do we care?  You write about what this man told that man on your so-called favorite TV show – Really? Do we care? Like the world, you are updating us when season 5 of “so and so” HELL-WOOD series is coming out – Do we care? Interestingly enough, you write about it as though it’s the most interesting and fascinating thing in the world to know. shame. That is a waste of time friend.

Our minds are very sophisticated and over the years, I’ve realized that people don’t like to be busy – People so much like the feeling they get when they know others know they are busy or involved in something. Can you make time for God in your life? It’s URGENT.

They are sooo many people around the world who are longing to read a message you can share with them on here. Can you give it a thought? Can you tell me how I, Charles got on your blog? Did you plan that a certain young man from a village of a tiny but crowded country (Rwanda) located in Eastern Africa will be reading your posts? DO YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH YOUR POSTS ABOUT JESUS CHRIST – yes your 200 or 300 words – CAN IMPACT OTHERS? Don’t you have an inexorable desire to see Jesus touching many lives?

I know some of you may NOT like what I am saying but remember this: “Bitter herbs” are good for health.

Believe it or not – Someone somewhere may stumble on your posts and you never know how they may impact them.

Here is my bottom line:

When It’s all been said and done – all our treasures, diplomas, famous websites, jobs and confidence – will mean NOTHING. ONLY what we’ve done for love’s reward will STAND the test of time.

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
