THE RESPONSE

As I look to the skies everything is so tight and thick. Hope dilapidation with every rising dawn, new contractions, deaths… my mind blinded from the recovery cases. To clear my mind with the once rumored death sentence has been an uphill task, overcoming gravity. With the prevention being combined efforts between my own hygiene and the next person’s, who seems not to care! This pandemic, Covid-19, has triggered shock-waves into our spines paralyzing us with fear. Government updates filled with so much goodies of goodwill, all hitting amiss of the bull’s......

FAITH OR FEAR

In the wake of the deadly COVID 19 virus, the stand and understanding of believers have been put to test. Some have viewed it as God’s punishment to the world due to increased wickedness. Nevertheless, the pestilence has clearly put on toes the hopeful and the hopeless. English dictionary defines faith as ‘the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another, resting solely and implicitly on his authority and veracity; reliance on testimony’. Hebrews 11:1; now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of......

EFFECTIVE EVANGELISM

EFFECTIVE EVANGELISM Acts 17:16-34 In Athens, Paul spoke out of his distress at the sight of a city of idols. He decided to reason with the Jews and the God-fearing Greeks in the synagogue and even in the market places concerning this matter. A lot can be learnt from Paul through his communication with the Athenians who were hostile and antagonistic. We are sensitized on what we use in evangelism. These may include: voice, eloquence and knowledge. Shouting loud neither guarantees compensation of the truth nor communicates what is to be driven......

PRAYING GOD'S WILL AND SEEING CHANGE

PRAYING GOD’S WILL AND SEEING CHANGE “It’s KAIROS!!!”…“Yes, it’s KAIROS!!!”  is a mantra chanted year in year out by church members and students taking the Kairos course- a mission mobilization course. The Compass Bible study guide acts as follow up activity after the course. As we went through the study guide, we came across an indelibly insightful article by Titus H. titled “Praying God’s will and Seeing Change”. This we have decided to share for many to read.   “Jesus commissioned His followers to “make disciples of all nations,” and gave them......

AUTHENTICITY IN THE PUBLIC;The Church Today

  AUTHENTICITY IN THE PUBLIC; The Church Today I have always loved watching my fellow Christians go about their life. However, it becomes a concern (to me) and a temptation (to the receiving end) when what is done in public has been and is being used to define one’s maturity in faith. Here, we start missing the mark. One of the detrimental factors that are producing Christians who are zealous but not fruitful is, public-orientation. The church today is producing renowned Christian leaders whose sincere personal walk with God, if openly evaluated,......

PRAYER

PRAYER   It was the exhortation of our Lord and Saviour (Jesus Christ) to His disciples that men should pray and not faint (Luke18:1). He urged His disciples to fervently pray for them not to fall into temptations (Matt 26:41). A true Christian is characterized by a life of prayer and constant petitioning for their needs and the needs of others including the non-believers. A Christian who doesn’t pray is likened to a limping Christian. The Bible shows examples of people who prayed, right from Genesis to Revelation. They include but not......

CHASTITY WEEK CAMPAIGN

CHASTITY WEEK CAMPAIGN The Chastity Campaign was pioneered and flagged by The Focus Kenya in February 2016 and dubbed “Igniting for Purity” with the slogan “Mwili Wangu, Mali ya Mungu,” .Aimed at raising awareness on chastity, the campaign seeks to rediscover godly values about sexuality that have faded away. Moreover, the campaign is the trumpet of truth in matters of sexuality through a statement that obliges young people to stand for purity.   This year’s Chastity week awareness runs from 12th– 18th February. “Matthew 19:25-26; when the disciples heard this they were......

PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT

When you hear about praying in the Spirit, what comes in your mind? This subject of praying in the Spirit has attracted a lot of concern especially in our Christian Unions and a number of brethren and today, I prayed for God to give me some insight about it. Many of us think that praying in the Spirit is “constrained” to the gift of speaking in other tongues, today; I bring us an in-depth perspective. It’s praying “IN” Spirit, right? Let me begin with this conjunction “IN”, It can mean “by the means of,......

WORSHIP

Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heaven! 2 Praise him for his mighty works; – Psalm 150 (NLT)   Worship in prayer is dynamic and inexhaustible. I have come to learn from time that everybody has a worship path they follow when in prayer, usually distinct from last time.It’s what the psalmist calls a new song in the 33rd Psalm. It’s a particular direction ordered by the Holy Ghost and my endeavor is to try......

THE SILENT TEARS

The life of God’s sons is peculiar and He puts on their way a variety of things to handle and among them is, AWAITED GLORY. In fact the Bible tells us that the creation is groaning awaiting the revelation of the Sons of God and on the other hand these sons as Paul said, they groan each day not that they be unclothed but that they be further clothed. It is in the nature of God to pre-empt or to shed some light about the future to His People so that He......

HEAVEN A CLOISTERED RENDEZVOUS?

Heaven I come, quiets my soul; remember….. Weak and weary from the upward gaze; Remember…. I count the many acts and am lost in the reverie of the count. Is it all about counting? What’s outside the counting rhythm? Here I come, quiets my soul. Mad with my very self, I assume the madness of the situation. I am to blame; an enemy of my real self; remember… Heaven I come, quiets my soul. Anger and prejudice, synonymous; joy, hypocritical; love, cleft under the rock of envy. Justice escapes my very grip.......

GUILTY MADE INNOCENT

HALLELUJAH The song starts and my blood stirs; My choices are not always the greatest but I stand there like am the purest, pretending to grasp the heavens with my bare hands while in fact  I came  with  a bare heart. I feel so empty yet I look so full, convincing all that I am with Him but the truth is, I don’t know where I lost Him. And it goes on and on and on……… The guitar sounds and I swear I can feel Heaven and for a while I am......

NOT AMONG THEM

Today,s world is governed by and established upon definite systems. A system is an organized set of doctrines, ideas or principles usually intended to explain the modus operandi of something. As such, we talk of education systems, marriage systems, and religious systems among others. These systems dictate the lifestyles of the people in the jurisdiction of their application. The world is replete with a barrage of religions, and quite often Christianity is named among them. Actually it is acclaimed by many as the world’s number one religion with Jesus Christ, it’s ‘leader’......

A HELPING HAND

As I was walking to town to get myself some lunch some day in town, I met an elderly man who tried to stop me. “Kijana, ebu simama kidogo” (Young man, can you spare me a moment?) Immediately, thoughts were racing in my mind. “What does this man want from me? “ “Is he going to ask for money, fare, Lunch…?” “What now does he want from me?” I am not offering any present for correctly guessing what I did. You are right. I went past him as if it were none......
