When David came to the battlefield and found all the men shaking in their boots because of Goliath, he inquired about the reward for slaying the Nephilim offspring. This inquiry was met by hostility from David’s eldest brother, Eliab. Eliab calls David proud and wicked of heart (1 Samuel 17:28). David rejects this false identity label and insists on his…More

In 2 Corinthians 2:11 Paul says that believers should not be ignorant of Satan’s devices. The word Satan means adversary. His other name the Devil means a liar. To put the two together (adversary and liar), it is axiomatic that our enemy opposes us through deception. This is also evident from scripture. Revelation 12:9 ”So the great dragon was cast…More

The pride of Namaan in 2 Kings 5 almost cost him his healing. Naaman came all the way from Aram to Israel to have his leprosy cured because he heard a witness speak of the power of God to heal him. He was directed to meet Elisha the prophet. Elisha did not meet the dignitary. He sent out his servant…More

We are gathered here today to mourn the untimely death of our dear beloved Self. He was a devoted fornicator, esteemed thief, cherished blasphemer and a wonderful sanctimonious man that we all loved to hate. Early life and Education Self was born promptly at the same time his biological body came into this earth. He was empowered by the gloriously…More

Let your heart be ready the day God forgives your enemies. At the heart of the Gospel is a plea for us not to allow the grace and mercy of God to be an offence to your sensibilities. In the parable of the prodigal son, the elder brother was offended by the Father’s restoration of the younger sinful brother. The…More

Hi Ernest. There is this famous verse that we love quoting as Christians. Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship.” (NIV, 1984). Could you explain to me what the spiritual act of worship means? Thanks for asking…More

Proverbs 27:20 “Hell and Destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.” (NKJV) This verse is a reminder not to be deceived by our eyes. I would like to highlight this deception in our quest for sexual purity. The more nudity and impurity we indulge our eyes on, the more unsatisfied our souls become. And if…More

Before I got married, I served in several ministries in church. My favourite was the Bible Challenge ministry. We would meet once in a year and train to compete with other churches for the Bible Challenge trophy . During the competition, we had the judges test our knowledge of the book we memorised in a Bible trivia. We were tested…More

The Wamboye family has innovated a new board game. We are calling it “Logos: The Ultimate Bible Board Game.” Logos is an idea that started in 2017. Over the years, while doing youth ministry, we noticed a few gaps in the mission field. From a general observation, biblical illiteracy seemed to be on a steady increase, especially among urban youth…More

Kirk Franklin has been recently trending in the International Christian music scene. Franklin was performing at a B.E.T rap show for the 2022 Hip-hop Awards. In his performance, he rapped a song that left many confused and upset. The specific part of the song that rattled the Internet was the lyrics that stated, “The Lion and the Lamb will bow…More

I recently had a brief online discussion with a friend of mine on using a seeker-sensitive approach in reaching out to youth who are not attending church. If you have not heard the term before, seeker sensitivity is an approach by some churches to reach people who do not attend the church through attractive mediums. The attractive mediums are meant…More

Father’s day is coming up. The more years I clock as a father, I cannot help but notice the profound impact that the male parent has on a child. I have understood this impact even more owing to the sessions of counselling I have with couples; many relationship problems between a husband and wife can be traced to father wounds…More

Proverbs 29:3 “A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father, but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.” (NIV) I cannot imagine a more modern common example of being a companion of prostitutes than the consumption of internet pornography. Pornography is but a collection of online prostitution aimed at stifling men sexually. Proverbs tells us that this companionship…More

The doors of destiny swing open on the hinges of honour. David was anointed as God’s chosen King of Israel when he was just a boy. He had to wait for about 15 years for the incumbent King Saul to die. In those 15 years, David served as a hired musician and in military service to King Saul. In a…More
