Usually we all are drawn toward the easier, simple, less demanding things of this life, we all oftentimes gravitate to the things that makes us feel happy, peaceful and solemn within ourselves, and I strongly suggest, it’s thus emphatically refers us to what God proclaimed to Adam after the “Great Fall”, which is shown in the text below. 

Genesis [3:19] In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground;

Nations and Societies of our present world strive to make life better for humanity, but has God done something for Man?, YES, and the more for he wishes for us that we worship him in the full expression of freedom.


They are the things, both perceivable and imperceivable that (slows, lowers, binds etc) us to whatever we dream of achieving. This stands to reason that weights are the things that battles us from living the victory/triumphant life of God. This is what God promises, 

[Mat 11:28] KJV Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…. True rest and Peace is found in Jesus. What must we do then? 


Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. (Hebrews 12:1 )

Jesus has called you to run a race. It’s a faith race. It’s long-distance and multi-terrain. And you’ve been trying to run but you’re wondering why it’s so hard. Why do you get winded so quickly? Why are others running at a faster pace? What’s wrong?

Could it be that you’re not taking this race seriously enough? You can tell by how much extra weight you’re trying to run with.

An endurance race is hard enough when you’re running light. But it’s far harder, and often impossible, if you’re trying to run while lugging around extra stuff. Competitive long-distance runners lay aside everything except what’s absolutely necessary.

That’s what you need to do too. Because the stakes of winning or losing this race are far higher than an Olympic marathon. Winning your race is going to require intentionality, focus, and training. That’s why Paul wrote,

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it . Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly . . . [but] I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
( 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 )

The only identity the believer is expected to have is Christ. 

Watch here for Second Part. 

God bless you. 

God & Football 

Interesting to find this from me honestly shows my love for sports particularly the game of football ⚽. According to research football is one of the most watched and patronized games in the world now and I bet to say that among these patronisers are faithful Christians who just express their love for this game out of a pure conscience and conducts themselves accordingly in all forms, whether active play, spectators etc, which gives no room for criticism.

Quoted from anonymous Source: But I want to raise the question: “Should Christians be involved in the ‘game’ of football, at any level? – whether it be physically as one of the team, personally attending the matches as a spectator, or simply as a ‘Norm’, or ‘Couch Potato’, watching the game at home on the TV?”

In my experience, asking this question of Christians has produced an assortment of responses, some quite emotional, and an increasing number strenuously defend their belief that there is no harm to be done by their involvement with the game, at any level. “What could possibly be wrong with footy?” they ask. “Surely God is not against Christians having a bit of fun and entertainment, is He?”

Many football players and associates are diligent and faithful to Christian values and even in it extremeties good church contributors who have mastered the need to seperate this demanding profession and their Spirituality.

I once made a comment to a friend that, if the kind of enthusiasm that many Christian football lovers have and exhibits for their fan Clubs ♧ is to be reciprocated into their singular service unto God, a much more results would be experienced.

“You see, fun is not same as game, and game is not same as fun, but both can produce each other.”

Your purpose in life as Christian is larger than any of these, thou must therfore set your intents correctly any time you want achieve any of the above.

God bless You.

Humanities thirst and quest for the NEW, GREATER, the SUPERNATURAL, UTMOST SATISFACTION, etc is never ending since God himself imbibed it in man. Man is made to naturally seek for more, to aspire for the better/perfection.
By the order of life, every parents joy is to see his/her offspring grow fully into all spheres of this life. A parents wish is to see the son or the daughter become good examples to family, peers and society. Beloved Just as it is in the natural order, there is an exact replica of it in the Spiritual.

[[1Pe 2:2]] BBE

Be full of desire for the true milk of the word, as babies at their mothers’ breasts, so that you may go on to salvation;

God’s character as a parent is to see you and me grow to assume full responsibility of our lives as believers where His nature so draws an imprint in us for others to see and glorify Him.

The text reads that “Be full of desire”, the simplest understanding here is likened to a grown up man who can’t take care of himself, or a 15 yrs old boy who is still breastfeeding. This situation is very unlikely to happen but very likely with a newly born again person in Christ.

[Eph 4:14]KJV

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

The first reason why we should mature is;


The state of a child is so conditional that it’s can’t even cater for itself, cannot even speak plainly, cannot control its feelings and many more. A child cannot be given responsibility over grown ups. Thus, to be useful in the hands of the master we must desire to mature. Paul the Apostle admonishes Timothy not to appoint a novice to take the role of leadership in the church of God.


In the family of God we are made and divinely positioned to be interdependent to each other, this is the will of God with no controversy. A perfect allegory is what Paul makes mention of in the Book of Ephesians 4:1516

But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

He says that we all as believers are made to spiritually contribute to the growth and well-being of every beloved brother or sister. Therefore once undesirable or unfortunate effort to not grow in the grace of our lord Jesus Christ, affects the majority.


One of the beautiful occasion we are going to experience in heaven is a ceremony to award overcomers. Just as on earth its the best performing that best laurels; the picture is the same. Dear one it is through maturity and experience with christ that one can do much for God.

The lord bless you 🙏
