QUESTION: What exactly does it mean or look like for a Christian man to lead a Christian woman in a dating relationship?
ANSWER: I don’t know why we have been taught that this ideology applies to dating, so let me just come right out and say it: As a boyfriend, you have no business being her leader.

“Crazy” is such a convenient word for men, perpetuating a sense of superiority. Men are logical; women are emotional. Emotion is the antithesis of logic.
When women are too emotional, we say they are being irrational. Crazy. Wrong.
Women hear it all the time from men. “You’re overreacting,” they tell women. “Don’t worry about it so much, you’re over-thinking it.” “Don’t be so sensitive.” “Don’t be crazy.”
It’s a form of gas-lighting — telling women that their feelings are just wrong, that they don’t have the right to feel the way that they do.
Minimizing somebody else’ feelings is a way of controlling them. If they no longer trust their own feelings and instincts, they come to rely on someone else to tell them how they’re supposed to feel.

Christmas has always been a holiday celebrated carelessly. Even by Christians. Over the years, various customs and traditions have found their way into the church and the 21st century Christian does not even realize that a lot of these traditions are unscriptural. As you read this, please bear in mind that I do not intend to ruin anyone’s fun, be legalistic or rain on anyone’s parade. I only seek to draw attention to who we have been called to be and remind those who have forgotten that though we live in this world, we do not belong here.
For Christians, Christmas day is the day we celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ who was sent from God to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins and bring us into relationship with God. It’s the ultimate sign of God’s love for us. (John 3:16). This love compels us to celebrate Christmas by showing love to everyone around us, hence, the distribution of gifts and “Christmas cheer”.

James 4:6 (NIV)
“…But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
Pride is an uncomfortable subject to talk about. In church or out of church. mainly because God is still dealing with our pride in one area or the other. Human ovation and praise have the tendency to puff us up and it’s only by the spirit of God that we can put the flesh and it’s pride under submission and allow God to do his total work in us and through us.
Pride can make us abandon God’s chosen way for us and head of in a whole different direction. May this podcast open your eyes to God’s word more and may your heart be transformed as you listen and study the word.

Mathew 5:1-2 (MSG)
1-2 When Jesus saw his ministry drawing huge crowds, he climbed a hillside. Those who were apprenticed to him, the committed, climbed with him. Arriving at a quiet place, he sat down and taught his climbing companions.
Crowds were attracted to Jesus. Some were attracted to the great preaching, some were attracted to the miracles and some were attracted to bread and fish he provided. Most were fans. They followed him because they liked him and wanted to be identified with his celebrity.

Matthew 5:4-5 (MSG)
You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.
“You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are—no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.
God requires us to live simple lives. That’s why he said we should lay aside every weight. He wants us to shed all self consciousness, self elevation and be content with who we have been created to be.

It is a few days to Christmas and the air is thick with the smell of Christmas. Holidays are being planned, fun events being looked forward to and families excited about the times they will spend together.
Sadly, about 640,000 Nigerians are not privileged to look forward to this joyous celebrations. This is because they have been made refugees in their own country, internally displaced by the deadly activities of the Boko Haram terrorist group. Many of them are in camps or are trying to pick up the pieces of their lives in places other than their hometowns.

God has ordained seasons and cycles in our lives. Sometimes, when our dreams aren’t coming to pass on our timetable, we can be tempted to get frustrated. But we have to be careful not to allow our attitude to keep us from moving forward.
Understand that in God’s kingdom, every season is not harvest. There are ploughing seasons, planting seasons and watering seasons.
Sure, we would love for every season to be a time of increase; but without the other seasons, we wouldn’t be prepared. It’s during the ploughing seasons when God’s bringing issues to light that we need to deal with.
He’s getting us prepared for promotion. If you’re not making as much progress as you would like, the key is not to lose any ground. Don’t go backwards. Hold your position by keeping an attitude of faith and expectancy, even when it’s hard.
Keep ploughing by speaking the Word daily. As you do, you’ll pass the test, and God promises your due season is coming!

Bible Reading: Luke 19: 1-0
It’s very easy to unconsciously slide into the cocoon of insulation that church community provides. Over time, we befriend only church community “approved” people, attend only Christian themed events, even on social media, we relate and engage only Christians and church folks. Over time we become isolated. What this does to us is, it becomes rather difficult to witness and share Christ with those who need him.
If we are not careful, we slide into self righteousness and legalism. How?
