THE POWER OF HUMILITY (2) – Rev Joshua Talena

Man’s natural tendency is toward “self” that is rooted in sin and sinful ego. The greatest plague on earth is pride and arrogance. The opposite of pride is humility. More people miss the blessings of God due to pride and arrogance than other sin. Pride was the first sin as Lucifer challenged God. All conflicts and troubles have flowed downward from pride. The source of every gossip, hurts, division, hatred, acrimony is pride. Pride is the ultimate sin. To truly repent, or put off pride requires that we embrace, or put on humility. As James 4:10 states, “Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord and He will exalt you.”

LOYALTY COUNTS IN MINISTRY!!! – Pastor Bimbo Animashaun

One of the most misunderstood, misconstrued, abused and bastardized subjects in ministry today is the subject of LOYALTY.

Some ministers see loyalty as an attempt by some to build personal empires and castrate people such that they become robots, hence not being able to “think” for themselves.
But the Bible fact is that LOYALTY COUNTS IN MINISTRY and that’s not negotiable!

The key synonyms of LOYALTY according to many dictionary definitions is FAITHFULNESS.

THE TRIPOD OF MARRIAGE (Conviction, Affection and Attraction) – By Pastor Bimbo Animashaun

In the past, the central focus (if not the only focus) when it comes to preparation for marriage was CONVICTION.

And if you were to ask for my take on that, I would give a nod but temper it with two other accessories and supplements which are AFFECTION and ATTRACTION.

Prior to this watershed in marital enlightenment, Christians pushed the issues of AFFECTION and ATTRACTION to the foreground, the resultant effect being the escalation of crisis on the marriage landscape in the Body of Christ.Avoidable challenges were grappled with and many couples were frustrated.But like a neon sign in the sky, light began to pop up in the horizon and the Body of Christ became more enlightened and better informed.
Telling a Brother or a Sister to marry someone they don’t have “AFFECTION” or “ATTRACTION” or what people call “FEELINGS” for is wicked (please take note of my word “wicked”; it’s used intentionally).Such miscalculation will snowball into frustration and fiasco, and in the long run, the victim may find himself or herself in a gargantuan gaga, and at the end of the day, Chinue Achebe’s theoretical postulate, “Things fall apart, and the centre could not hold” will hold sway.
