Hello Ernest, I have a question. When you look at the scriptures, you often find a few instances where God asks people questions. Why does the Ancient of Days ask a question to a lesser being? Isn’t He all-knowing? Thank you for writing, Beloved. This is a good question 🙂 The short answer is that God often locates our hearts…More

On the 31st of August, I started something called The Ephesians Identity Challenge. For six days, I welcomed fellow believers to cover the six chapters of Paul’s letter to the church of Ephesus. Each day, I challenged believers to take time to read one chapter and write a list of what the biblical book says about their identity as a…More

A privilege to invest in a future generation by planting trees in whose shade you may never sit. This #FathersDay, be firstly and firmly established in the Fatherhood of God towards you. The Fatherhood…More

I recently saw a status update shared on social media. It was an image with a caption that read as follows: “I don’t hold grudges; you simply become irrelevant.” I usually don’t fret over the things I see on social media, especially among unbelievers. However, it gets me thinking deeply when I see professing believers subscribe to such mantras. What…More

INBOX: Hi Ernest I would like to hear your thoughts on taking time apart from your partner following disagreements or hurtful events during dating/courting. Hey, thanks for writing.

During this quarantine season, more people are online than before. And without the monitoring systems of work and HR, it is not unusual to hear that…More
