Principle of Opposites

Luke 11:23 “He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.”

This verse teaches us that, with God there is no middle ground. It's either you are on his side or on the enemy’s side. Darkness and Light are like Water and Oil. The two never mix. Even if you try putting them together, one will always override the other.
Light has no Shadow!
God gave us the gift of choice, to choose which side we want to be on. We might profess to be on the side of Christ, but our conduct and character reveals whose side we really are on.


Moral of the Story: We are loyal to what we love. Therefore my prayer is for nothing less than for you to LOVE Jesus more.

God Makes No Compromise

Until the heart is surrendered unconditionally to God, the human agent is not abiding in the True Vine, and cannot flourish in the Vine, and bear rich clusters of fruit. God will not make the slightest compromise with sin. If He could have done this, Christ need not have come to our world to suffer and die. No conversion is genuine which does not change both the character and the conduct of those who accept the truth. The truth works by love, and purifieth the soul.
We might be hanging on the True Vine, but as long as we are not attached to it, then we will be spiritually dead, as the branch in this picture.
The reason why many find the Christian life so deplorably hard, why they are so fickle, so variable, is, they try to attach themselves to Christ without detaching themselves from their cherished idols.
We should dare to be different, even if it means standing out as the only blooming yellow flower. A life with Christ is always worth it.
Our faith increases by exercise. When we pray, we should live out our prayers as an act of FAITH.

Book Review: Death in the Kitchen


Background: I was attracted by the title of this book. Yes! I judged the book by its title and amazingly enough, it turned out to be a great book. Below are some highlights of the book - DEATH IN THE KITCHEN by JOE CREWS:

The stomach is the most abused organ of the body.

Have you ever noticed that three-fifths of the word DEATH is EAT? 

Paul Bragg, in his famous cookbook, stated: “The average person is poisoning himself day by day with the food he eats. Most people eat with their eyes. If the food looks good, they do not question whether it is healthful or death-dealing.

There is only one way to know what is good for this very complex body system, and that is to consult the One who made it. Only the manufacturer has the best operating manual for its products. Automobile makers always provide such instructions for keeping their vehicles in top running condition. 


When God made the body, He also gave specific operating instructions, including fuel and maintenance. Notice this counsel in Genesis 1:29, “Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.” No one has been able to improve on it. Nuts, fruits, grains and vegetables are still recognized by the best nutritionists as the finest possible diet.

Moral of the Story: Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do all to the glory of God ~ 1 Corinthians 10:31.

Stay blessed :)

Book Review: Alone In The Crowd

I just finished a great book, "ALONE IN THE CROWD" by Joe Crews. 


Background: I was feeling emotionally overwhelmed when I started reading the book. I literally decided to read the book so that I could escape from my emotions. What I leant from that experience was that "a little reading is all the therapy a person needs sometimes." Below are some highlights of the book: 

"Have you ever been in the mood not to pray, or not to read your Bible? Of course you have. So have I. Should we yield to that feeling? Listen, prayer is the breath of the soul just as oxygen is the breath of the body. Our mood not to pray and study is a signal that we had better make ourselves do it quickly because our spiritual life is being threatened. That is the time to force ourselves into the closet, onto our knees, and as we pray, the spiritual desires begin to return. Very soon prayer is restored as a joyful, fulfilling privilege. But unless we break the hypnotic spell of Satan's "feeling” trap by acting against his point of contact, we are placed in great spiritual jeopardy. The truth is that we must act or be acted upon."

Moral of the Story: "We cannot measure what is right and wrong by our subjective feelings or by what the majority are doing. Our stone of standing must be the Word of God. Regardless of the crowd, regardless of our moods or feelings, regardless of the way people treat us, we must choose to order our lives on the basis of divine principle. Like Paul we say, "I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me. And the life I now live, I live by the faith of him who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Gal. 2:20)."

I read the book online and for free. CLICK HERE for the link to the book. The book is just too DEEP and I recommend it to all of you.

I hope you will be revived and reformed by God's grace :)

Testimony!

God is just too deep, if we pay close attention to even the smallest things in our lives, we will see evidence of his presence.

Personal Experience: Every Tuesday, my lectures end at 10:20am and I normally go to the Law Library until lunch time. But today, for some awkward reason, I decided I would go to the main library. I found myself at the most randomest spot, that on a normal day, I wouldn't even dream of studying there. When I got there, I was excited to see a sister from church. However, when she saw me,  she started smiling and laughing at the same time (imagine the confusion in my head). Then she told me, she has been wanting to talk to me about something, but had no idea how to get hold of me (Imagine the shared joy at that point). As if that wasn't enough, what she told me, was something I had been hoping and praying for. It was only at that time, that everything made sense.

Moral of the Story: God is really a mysterious God. You might not know why certain things are happening the way they are today, but be rest assured that when he reveals the bigger picture, you will thank him for it. Lately I have learnt to pray and wait, not for my will, BUT for God's will to prevail. When God answers your prayers, the WAIT, is always worth it.
