FORGIVENESS - Part 3

Bless Those Who Curse

FORGIVENESS –Part 2

Forgiveness and Unforgiveness as Footholds
Ephesians 4:26-27. In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Romans 12:21. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Forgiveness in Christ is indeed forgiveness with a difference. Such forgiveness becomes a good foothold for the work of the Holy Spirit in our own lives and in the lives of those we forgive. Think of the story of Stephen. The Bible says that Stephen was “full of the Holy Spirit.” [...]

FORGIVENESS - Part 1

Forgiveness with a Difference
Ephesians 4:32. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Perhaps you have heard someone say, “I forgave them. But it didn’t make any difference. Nothing changed. In fact, things are getting worse.” Perhaps you have said it yourself.

MISSIONS TRAINING: A SPIRITUAL BIRTH

MISSIONS TRAINING: A SPIRITUAL BIRTH
(An excerpt from a manuscript by Dr. Mrs. Esther Adenike Luogon)

Our God is a missionary God. It all started with Him. In His love for humankind, when the first Adam fell into sin, God had to make provision for man’s redemption. In the Old Testament times He began with father Abram (Abraham). For him to become an effective tool in God’s hand, God took him through a training period. He left the known (his country) for the unknown; the familiar for the unfamiliar; he was childless for years and a catalogue of other painful experiences attended his path. Tough times indeed! Yet Abraham was blessed to be a blessing. (Gen.22:18). [...]

THE “JOY” OF SERVING HIM

THE “JOY” OF SERVING HIM
(An excerpt from a manuscript by Dr. Mrs. Esther Adenike .Luogon)

The journey through the trials of life is not a pleasant one at all. If care is not taken, it can destroy a person’s life and even ministry. But it is interesting to note that the end result of trial can be glorious when one endures it patiently. (Rom.5:3-4)The same goes for the paradox in this thesis - the pain of serving Him becoming a thing of Joy. How can this be? Moses was a beloved servant of God, a man who spoke to God face-to-face. The Bible speaks of him as the meekest of all men. He was a man who led the Israelites for forty good years in the wilderness. [...]
