UNBELEIF – THE LIMITATION OF MANY CHRISTIANS

It is very obvious that the reason for the failure of many believers is because even though we claim we believe in God, we don’t really do; our statements and faith is only words without viability and any real power, hence the predicaments most of us find ourselves in.
Just like the Israelites in the Old Testament, we mummer anytime time we are faced with the slight test or trouble, we waver in the sight of problems mostly because of our weak foundation in the Word of God. This is true because if the foundation is strong, it can stand against any wind of trial. I can boldly say that most of the things we go through are the fruits borne through unbelief.

Rewards of Faith

The church has often stressed the priority of faith over works, and this passage helps us understand why faith takes priority. Without faith, works will never happen. We have no motivation to do anything if we don’t “believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” We do what we do because we are sure God is there. We live to please God because we believe God will reward those who seek him.

What it means to be Submissive.

Submitting or being in subjection to your own husband does not make you inferior. This is not slavery, but rather God’s plan for order in the home. Just as the human body or organizations may not function effectively with many heads in control, so is the home. Everything has been designed to have one head, in other to function effectively.

We are Called as Witnesses

What we proclaim comes out of the overflow of our own relationship with Jesus Christ. We live in a time when it seems like everyone is hustling for something. If our witness isn’t genuine, then no one will listen. But as followers of Jesus Christ, we are genuine witnesses of the resurrection of Christ. We preach and teach what we know and have experienced in our own lives.

The Women of old

“A woman is like a tea bag, you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” Eleanor Roosevelt.
Let’s strive and pray to be women of wisdom like Abigail, the wife of Nabal who saved her home instead of tearing it down. With our strength, we can save and build homes, communities, nations and the world at large. Let’s not be okay with how culture and the world is defining us. When we start shinning in own corners, the world will turn it’s attention on us and our impact will recorded in history. A shinning star can never be hidden. All these women had their weaknesses, but they never concentrated on that, but rather turned that into strength and history will always have a place for them in it’s records.

My faith my reward

Faith is essential in our walk and fellowship with God. Our opening text talks about how impossible it is to please God without faith. In other words, the only way to please God is through faith.
So what then is faith? “Faith is a firm persuasion and conviction in God’s word regardless of the lack of physical evidence to support it or when physical evidence seems to contradict it”,  as defined by my lecturer. The absence of physical evidence does not mean it does not exits.
