Gods Intervention for the Evil Happening Around us

WHY IS THERE SO MUCH EVIL BUT GOD WONT INTERVENE?

Our reconciliation back to God in Christ is Gods’ intervention for the evil going on in the world. Man was created to function as a part of God. Man thus, was to remain ALIVE(progressive, prosperous, peaceful etc) as long as he functioned as a part of God. Sin severed that tie and in sin, man stopped functioning as a part of God and began functioning apart from God. In sin, man lost the right to life and DIED. Jesus died for us to be reconciled with God and thus, function again as a part of God.

On the subject of why there is so much evil but God wont intervene, I say, all that evil happening around us is because we have chosen to function apart from God. If we want all the evil to end, we must come to Christ, get reconciled with God and start functioning as a part of God. His love for us gave us another chance to come back to him. His love for is not supposed to cushion us against the consequence of the decision to function apart from him.

Take the opportunity of Jesus Christ today and come back to God!

Righteousness and Holiness

RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS

1 Peter 1:15-16 >> As He who has called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conducts since it is written, “you shall be holy for I am holy”.

These two terms are central to our calling as Christians. It is however observed, the confusion in our understanding and appreciation of both. What does it mean to be righteous and what does it mean to be holy? How do we become righteous and how do we become holy?

The Apostle Peter reminds us that he who has called us is holy. Essentially, he who has called us, does things we can only describe as holy. What is the nature of this calling? He has called us to be, and after we have been, it is expected of us to do things in accordance with what we have become. So one would ask and rightly so, “what has he called us to be”? He has called us to be like himself. How is he? He is righteous!

Often, we confuse holiness to be righteousness and righteousness to be holiness but the two are not the same. In Jesus Christ, WE HAVE BEEN MADE RIGHTEOUS. In other words, we have been made like God by God through Christ. He has gifted us his nature called righteousness. We didnt work for it. We didnt pay for it. He gave it to us completely free. It is worth noting that we have been equipped with righteousness to produce with it, holiness. What are you doing with the righteousness given you?

Righteousness is the nature of God. It is the very life of God. Our righteous God is holy and the Apostle Peter reminds us that the new creation who has been made righteous like God must be seen to be holy as God is holy. If God has gifted us his very life and image, we must honor him by doing with this gift, what he does with his righteousness. What God does with his righteousness, is produce holiness.

We were not just forgiven our sins. We were after forgiveness, gifted a nature called righteousness which would not lead us back into our sin but lead us on a path far apart from our old ways. We were made righteous to be holy. Those who still sin in the name of grace have actually come to terms with the fact that they have been forgiven but are yet to come to terms with the fact that they are righteous and that the rigbteousness must lead them away from their old ways onto a path of holiness.

In grace, we have been recreated to produce holiness instead of sin. If God who has called us out of sin into his righteous light is holy, then we must be holy. The only expectation from your righteousness is holiness even as God is holy. Forgiveness qualifies you for righteousness and righteousness which bears holiness qualifies you for eternal life.

God bless you for sparing a moment to read this and going the extra mile to share. Your inputs are welcomed as we draw inspiration from one another and grow together in the grace werewith we are called.

Seasons of Amen

Amen – “I have done whats needed for it to be done”

Most of us squander our amen seasons and so the blessing of God come to meet us unprepared. God has released his blessings. Like the rivers which never dry, they keep flowing. Have you prepared a cup to draw from it?

Amen – Have you done whats needed so that, if that opportunity in the banking, oil, marketing sector comes along, it will find you prepared? Your amen is the seasons of preparation for that opportunity.

Amen – Have you done whats needed to be done so that when that exam paper is placed before you, you would have adequately prepared to ace it? Your amen is the season of preparation for that moment.

Amen – Have you done whats needed to be done so that if the trumpet should sound today and Christ descends with the clouds in glory, you will go to reign with him eternally in the presence of God? Your amen is the season of preparation for his coming.

Dont be like the 5 foolish virgins of Matthew 25:1-13. They waited unprepared for the bridegroom until he came and said to them, “Truly I say to you, I do not know you”. Take advantage of your amen season. Dont squander it.

God bless you!

Sin and Grace

Many people, christian and non christian, have had varied views on the Christian relationship with sin in this dispensation of grace. Did the grace of God come through Christ to make sin legal and permissible?

Absolutely not! The grace of God has not come to make sin legal. It has come to rather make sin extinct. We should get this straight. Without mincing words, grace is not the license to sin.

The grace of God plants in our hearts, a seed called righteousness and mandated the holy spirit of God, to see to the nurturing of this seed. Righteousness is intended to produce eventually, a seed called holiness.

If truly you are righteous, then you will be holy. God is righteous and so he is holy. If we have been born again into his image and likeness, then we will also be holy.
