Today in my quiet time, I was reading Luke chapter 2. I got to the part where the shepherds that were tending their flocks by night and an angel of the LORD appeared in God’s tremendous glory and they were afraid. The angel appeased the shepherds and announced that a saviour had been born. It was the birth of Jesus.…More

The two thieves on the cross teach us a compelling message on God’s salvation. The thief that mocked Jesus only believes in a salvation that involves him getting out of the current pain he is facing. And when Jesus does not do that, he insults him and is almost vividly upset that he is still on the cross.  Many people…More

Pastor Timothy Keller once said, “The Bible is not about you.”  He is right. The Bible is about one central character- Jesus. Jesus Christ is not a random character who appeared in the 40th book in the Bible i.e. Matthew.

“She doesn’t drink, she doesn’t smoke, she doesn’t sleep around. She must be a born-again Christian.” How many times have you heard that? Too many people in our post-modern culture would agree with that statement. Too many people are wrong.

It is easy to look at all those and think, “Well, I definitely…More

Centuries on and the man Jesus Christ remains the most iconic, most influential and most intriguing character in all of history. The God-man’s terrestrial assignment, in his own admission, involved bridging the gap between…More

Søren Kierkegaard  once said, “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” The Christian faith when it first came into the scene was too incredible to believe. To say that God loves, God incarnated himself into Christ, God died, resurrected and that He associates with the…More

This thing about your name on a Coke bottle is great! If you don’t like it, don’t take it badly. It’s nothing personal. Really, it’s not that they chose to ignore you or anything. It’s just that…well…how do I put this? It’s just that your name is Kiogora. If it’s any consolation, I haven’t yet found one with the name…More

I played football in high school. I was a number 5 defender and I did a pretty good job at it. Like many other players, I had a substitute. Whenever I got injured, fatigued or I under-performed, I was asked by the coach to take the bench and a fresh player would take my position. At times, you have to…More

Christ Jesus The Greatest Wonder; when it pained, he stayed When all the forces of evil rallied around humanity, he took our place. His pores gave in and elicited blood for the dread of what was before him. His flesh turned flaccid, his bones grew weary but his will stood steady. He didn’t fear the nails driven through his wrists…More
