Ecouragement

You shall rise from the ashes


Life is not a bed of roses. It doesn’t matter who you are; you are going to face tribulation. Sometimes all you will see around you are dark clouds. And it matters not how hard you try to turn things around; nothing breaks in your favor. Now, you begin to wonder why me? But God answers with the question, “Why not you.”

As children of God, we must be steadfast in our commitment to Christ. We cannot be wishy-washy. The patriarch, Job was not, even when he lost everything, Peter was not, even as he languished in jail, Paul was not, despite many shipwrecks and imprisonment, and Jacob, the swindler, refused to let the angel go until he received a blessing.

Every one of the men mentioned above rises out of their tribulation better off than they were. And you can too. Just hold firm to God’s unchanging hands. And you also shall rise.

Show us Christ


Every Church has at least two Corneileous. Are you one?
Acts chapter 10 talks about an uncircumcised gentile who was living in Caesarea. His name was Cornelius. And he was a centurion in what was known as the Italian Regiment. He and all his household were devout and God-fearing. He prayed to God daily and gave generously to those in need.

By all standard, Corneileous was a good man. But something was lacking in his life. He had not heard the gospel of Jesus Christ, and he did not know Christ.

There are many good people in the Church, but being good is not enough to get anybody into heaven.
