2 Peter was written at about AD60. As the name of the letter implies, the authorship was credited to Simon Peter, one of the disciples appointed by the Jesus at the beginning of His earthly ministry. The primary audience of the letter was the persecuted church in Asia Minor. Peter knew that the time of his death was imminent and that he needed to get a very important message out to the church. In 2 Peter 3:1, we read that God’s divine power has given us everything we need to live godly lives. As a result of this, Peter says, we need to make every effort to progress in our faith. How do we do this? By adding some elements to our faith. Although these things require human effort, the results are obtained through the grace of God.

There is always a sense of anticipation when a new year is about to roll in and 2022 is not an exception. The battle against Covid is still far from over since it became a global pandemic in 2020. No one would have anticipated that more than 2 years later, Covid would still be a major topical issue in our world today.Life as we know it has changed significantly. I used to wonder a few years ago, why some tourists I see in London, especially those from Asia often wear masks. Now it has become our reality. Governments of various countries are trying hard to fight the pandemic and at the same time keep the wheels of their economies running. They also have the challenge of dealing with the divisive issue of imposition of restrictions and vacci...

When a child is born, you can see the joy on the faces of family and friends. It is a time of jubilation and celebration. Phone calls are made, sometimes across the word to break the good news of the new entrant into the family with congratulatory messages pouring in from many quarters.There was however one special child whose birth was celebrated many years before the birth event. In Isaiah 9: 6, we read, ‘For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given…’.  This statement was made in the present tense, though it was a prophecy for an event meant to happen in the future. This was because as far as God was concerned, it was a done deal. Nothing was going to prevent it from happening. Although human eyes had not seen it, as far...

It is not often that my birthday falls on a Monday, which is when I post a new piece on the Biblepraise Newsletter. This makes today a very special day for me.I woke up this morning reflecting on the last 55 years of my life, at least the years I could remember. As I reflected on the past, tears flooded my eyes as memories kept flooding in. The tears were not out of sadness but rather of gratitude for the consistency of God’s faithfulness over my life. I remembered some thirty years ago dreaming of where I wanted to be and what I wanted to achieve in the future. Looking back now, I can testify that God has not only made my dreams come true but also went over and beyond my imagination. There was a time in my life I couldn’t see much...

Organisations tend to go through a process called rebranding for various reasons. The decision is often based on changing the perception of their customers, especially where their products or services have been the subject of negative publicity. Some rebrand because they have been bought over by other organisations and the new owners have decided to change the branding in line with their own brand.Recently, the popular social media company, Facebook, announced that it had changed it’s company name to Meta. Although they gave reasons for this name change as a reflection of the company’s growing ambitions beyond social media, the fact that this decision was made following a series of negative stories based on documents leaked by an ex-employee has raised eyebrows.

I woke up this morning feeling really thankful to God for the many things He has done for me and my family.  It is so easy to allow the challenges of life and the problems that we face each day to forget that God has been and continues to be there for us like no one else can.The Bible is full of writings to remind us of God’s faithfulness, His love and His blessings towards us. The Psalmist wrote in Psalms 34:1, “I will extol the Lord at all times; His praise will always be on my lips. I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glory the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.”This Psalm gives us a template for thanksgiving. He said, and we should, “extol the Lord” not once in a while, not once in a year but at all t...
