DIVORCE: CRISIS THAT HAS NO LIMITS - IV

A friend of mine went to the city market on a sunny day to purchase some stuff. She bought so many items, and it became necessary for her to seek help from anyone who cares enough to help her get the stuff into her car. A teenage boy approached her,
“Mummy, can I help you with your load ma?”
My friend gladly obliged. What a sweet relief! She engaged the young boy in a dialogue.
“You should be in school at this hour of the day young boy, why are you hanging around at the market square?” [...]

INSPIRATIONAL TEACHINGS ON FORGIVENESS - Part 2

BY SISTER RUTH VELTKAMP
(A missionary with SETFREE Ministries, USA)

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.” [...]

But is there a kind of forgiveness that will make a difference? Are there different kinds of forgiveness? In Ephesians 4:32, the Bible talks about a forgiveness that is done in Christ. What happens if we forgive, but not in Christ? Is there something unique about forgiving in Christ? [...]

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). [...]
