“For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. (2nd Corinthians 5:19, NLT)

In times like these, all of us are feverishly preparing for the Christmas Season with all the attendant activities. These include Church Conventions, parties and Watchnight (Cross-Over) Services among others. The object of these services shall all be to celebrate the incarnation of God into flesh to save sinful man.

Let us bear in mind that in our commemoration of Christmas, we remember the supreme sacrifice made by God himself, by giving his Only Beloved Son for the remission of the sins of Man. 

Interestingly, the whole of salvation is that God through Jesus Christ saves us so that we in turn will save others. That process incidentally is one that requires not only preaching the Gospel to the unbelieving world but extending the virtues of the life of God’s Kingdom to the unbelieving world. 

Therefore, as we prepare for the yuletide, I urge you beloved brothers and sisters to find space in your hearts to allow the gift(s) of God in you to affect the world. This could be in sharing meals to the underprivileged, emptying our wardrobes and shoe racks to help others in need in our churches, streets and neighbourhood as well as generally allowing the virtues of the kingdom to reflect.

Jesus is indeed the reason for the season and everything we do must reflect that fact!

My dear friend,
"I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live." – George Bernard Shaw
Over the last couple of years, I’ve dedicated a bit of my time to join the struggle of helping to raise the younger generation. This has been to ensure that they are well positioned to take over the reins of this country and improve on its lot.
Being a committed Christian, I have for the better part of my adult life been inspired by the philosophy, ‘Omnibus Omnia Factus Sum’, a Latin phrase adopted from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians 9:22 where he wrote that he became all things to all men that he might save some by all means.
I have therefore, utilized all manner of approaches to help influence positive change in the attitude and orientation of our people for the overall purpose of nation building. To this, I welcome you to my blog. Enjoy my take on issues espoused through the scripts as well as my brief thoughts on issues as they play out daily and news stories on various endeavors that I may play a part in.
