I've been a Christian for almost 15 years now, give or take. The thing is, I am not always sure I am a Christian. I am also not sure if the first time I raised my hand and “gave my life to Christ” was really the time I got “born again.” I am not even sure if … Continue reading Book Review: Am I Truly Saved? by John Musyimi
"What matters is that you are sincere" sounds like good advise, and it is, as we shall see in a moment. But it can also be the worst advise to give anyone. God does, indeed, want us to be sincere about what we do. A common dictionary definition of sincere is "free from pretense or … Continue reading When Being Honest and Sincere is a Bad Thing
I don’t know where it came from, but it finally arrived. In fact, I think it has always been there, though I chose to ignore it. But it was there. And it was real. I am talking about something that exists in all of us, believer or not, born-again or not. It is the desire … Continue reading The Day Someone Shared the Gospel With Me
God was sitting in heaven one day when a scientist said to Him, "God, we don't need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing - in other words, we can now do what you did in the beginning." "Oh, is that so? Explain..." replies God. "Well," says … Continue reading How God Redeems Culture
The popular local secular singer/actress, Size 8, finally "came out" and confessed that she has been a Christian for a while. For a long time, she had struggled with the apparent contradiction between her music and her faith, and she finally decided to make the switch. As she explains in a recent interview, “I have … Continue reading Lyrical Review: Mateke by Size 8 […And Some Tips for the Artist]
I am currently reading Francis Schaeffer’s True Spirituality and this book is just overflowing with timeless gems of truth about the Christian’s walk with Christ. I came across this illustration and had to share it with you. Schaeffer revisits the story of angel Gabriel’s announcement to Mary and shows us how Mary’s response ought to … Continue reading Be It Unto Me According To Your Word
For a long time in my Christian walk, I honestly didn't get the resurrection of Christ. I confess that I am still not quite sure that I truly grasp it . What I mean is that I didn't get what the "big deal" was regarding the resurrection, and why it must be included in our … Continue reading Much Ado About Resurrection
You've probably come across those passages in the Bible where God changes His mind after a prophet intercedes for the Israelites. Maybe you've even been part of discussions about how to reconcile such passages with those other passages that explicitly say God does not repent, or change His mind. Two common solutions have been proposed. … Continue reading How To Change God’s Mind
It is a familiar passage. One that almost every Christian has become well acquainted with. A woman caught in adultery is brought to Jesus, to serve as bait. The pharisees and the scribes wanted to see if Jesus is going to break the Law of Moses. He seems to have broken too many laws by … Continue reading Jesus Did Not Cast The First Stone
As far as my formal Christianity is concerned, I come from a baptist background. As baptists, we have a tendency to describe things in categories and outline commands in action-points. This does not always work well for us. While such a cautious approach to the Christian walk protects many of us from error, it does … Continue reading Disciples or Converts – Is There a Difference?
Here we go: HOW CAN I SELL A GODLY MESSAGE WITHOUT SELLING OUT? is an answer to my own prayer and question. I'd just put up the post on "My Blogging Idolatry" when I came across this post. Mark Driscoll responds to the concern of every Christian blogger who strives to remain faithful to God, … Continue reading Blog Break (6 Feb 13)
This song reminds me of an earlier post written on a related subject, Volunteers in Hell, in which I noted that "God doesn't send people to hell, they volunteer." Woe to the man who has grown up hearing the law of God, and the call of the Gospel, but still chooses to ignore it. Here's … Continue reading Lyrical Review: WANAJUA by Mwenyehaki ft Pitson
I love to read. Actually, I think I am addicted to reading. I may be the only person who takes breaks from reading to read something else. On any given day, I am always in the middle of at least 2 books, apart from the Bible. I also love reading blog-posts, I think I read … Continue reading Blog Break (19 Jan 13)
As followers of Christ, we don’t always need to travel across borders to find souls in need of a Savior. More often than not, we don’t even need to step out of our houses to find a soul in need of our witness. And though this could come as a shocker, we don’t even need … Continue reading The Salvation of a Hypocrite
He stumbles into my courtyard. His hands tightly bound at the wrists in leather straps. His hair is an entangled mess of blood and sweat, yet there seems to be no scratch or cut on his face. I wonder wonder whose blood that is, or where it came from. His knees are buckling with exhaustion. … Continue reading The Truth! Do You Know Him?
"I'm only human." - Unknown At least, that's what I like to tell myself every now and then. I am only human. I employ those words to shield myself from correction and the rebukes of others, and often to justify my carelessness or poor stewardship. This is especially true when it comes to my words, … Continue reading I’m Only Human… or Am I?
I was a loser, drifting through this cursed planet, aimlessly weaving through broken promises. I was a proud star, scaling the heights of shattered commandments, tip-toeing across sharp pieces of broken trust. I was a loose cannon, a loud cymbal, a lost cause. Love was not a word in my life-tionary, even though it dominated … Continue reading Beautiful Mud
