As I pen down my thoughts on the topic of this writing, I naturally look to be the Bible for answers by asking myself the question, "What was Jesus' view on tolerance? Answering this question will help us have a biblical perspective on how we relate with others, whether they are believers or non believers.In today's world, tolerance is a word that has become very prominent especially in the face of religious radicalism and terrorism that has continued to rage across different countries in the world. It has become common to hear adherents of a particular faith come out to condemn attacks done in the name of their religion and affirm that their religion is a religion of peace and tolerance. Whether those who were at the receiving end of these attacks believe so is anothe...

One of my old favourite songs as a young Christian, was 'Father Me' by Rick and Cathy Riso. The first verse goes like this; O father of the fatherless, In whom all families are blessed, I love the way you father me, You gave me life, forgave the past, Now in your arms I'm safe at last, I love the way you father me. And the chorus; Father me, forever you'll father me, And in your embrace I'll be forever secure, I love the way you father me, I love the way you father me. This song meant a lot to me then because I was going through a rough patch in my life and it seemed that there was no one who could help me. I had no one to look up to so I looked heavenward and...

For the Christian, prayer is simply our direct line to God and it is always on 24/7. My children know how frustrated I get whenever I call them and I get sent to voicemail either because they exhausted their phone batteries and didn't recharge or they placed their phones somewhere while they were elsewhere. When praying to God, you can be sure that there is no point of failure. When we pray in Jesus name, heaven hears us instantly. There is no linking from one communication tower or network to another. It is instant and immediate!Having defined what prayer is, the next logical question is, "Who is qualified to pray?" The only qualification for prayer is having a right standing with God. Without this, prayer is more of a wish list and a gambl...

A commentary on Acts 3: 1-10. As a child, I learnt the art of understand certain 'looks' my mum gave my brothers and I when we are in public and she didn't want to voice her reaction.The looks varied depending on the severity of our behaviour. Sometimes, you could sense that she was annoyed and other times, you could tell that you were in trouble whenever we got back home.When people look at you, what do they see? Do they see a person who cares for them or do they see someone who is focused on self?One day, Peter and John were on their way to the temple to pray. As they got the the template gate called beautiful, they saw a man who was lame from birth. Every day, he would be carried by others to this gate so he could beg for money from t...

As Christians we are called into a forward motion. No matter what we achieve in our spiritual walk, there is always more. As we progress in our journey however, there is a temptation for us to stall, backtrack or focus on things that blur the purpose for which God has called us.Paul was someone whose focus was on accomplishing excellence in all his undertakings. He took pride in his Jewish birth as well achievement of excellence in his training as a scribe and Pharisee. Paul was raised according to Hebrew customs. He was a Pharisee. Pharisees were the most religiously conservative group of Jews in his time and they were known for strict adherence to Jewish law and customs. They were particularly noted in the Gospels for their devotion to traditions of...

It had taken many months of preparation, mobilising, praying and fund-raising. June 9, 2018 was the day set for the JustOne event which took place at Priestfield Stadium in Gilingham, Kent, South East of England.I arrived early since I was part of the almost 100-strong JustOne Choir perfoming on that day. As we walked to our reserved seats, I felt the presence and the peace of God in that Stadium as people trooped in from the various entrances and making their way to their seats in orderly manner.As you read this, you must be wondering, what is JustOne? JustOne is a vision by Canon J John to preach God's word in large venues all over England to give people of faith and no faith the opportunity to understand and explore the relevance of Christianity.
