Charity as a way of life

Love is a strong bond that binds. It is a unifying factor; the true essence that brings people together and enable them live in harmony, devoid of all forms of rancour. We need love in all aspects of our lives, from the homefront to the larger society. But for love to be truly effective, it must be embedded in charity, which is the theolo-gical virtue by which we love God above all things for his own sake, and our neighbor as ourselves for the love of God.

Your destiny can change

Too many people are today being deceived that their future is hopeless and that nothing good can come out of it. They have been lied to by satan that change is not possible. Some believe this lie or their present situation because probably they have tried certain things for years and yet no positive change has occurred. Thus, they have concluded that their lives can never be better. God has sent me to you today to let you know that His thoughts concerning you is of peace and not of evil and to give you an expected glorious end, a future and a hope (Jer. 29:11). God did not create you with a destiny that is useless. God is a glorious God. Everything He does is wonderful. This is why I know that your life is planned with great wonders waiting to happen. Don’t believe the lie that your present status is your destiny. It is not true. It can be changed. You can change it.

Jesus consoles the week

God has a plan for you

We bring to you today the heart of God for now; so that you can know that all is well with you, for God can never make a mistake in your life. To know that God has a plan for your life gives me so much joy because; God is the greatest planner in the entire world. When He plans, it is always beautiful. Remember how God brought creation into existence. He carefully planned it and executed it and said it was good and then He planned man when He said, “Let us make man in our image and likeness” (Gen 1: 36). There is nothing that God does without Him first planning it. God said in Jeremiah 29: 11, “For I know the thoughts and plans I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome”.
