THE UNNOTICED DEEDS OF JESUS CHRIST THAT MADE HIM GREAT: Part 3

Image
As Christians indeed we are not allowed to live a life below greatness; even in our simplicity and normal lifestyle. All about us should hold people ransom to the kingdom of God. And that's why we have taken our time at Life Pyramids Orientation Centre to look into the life of our

"Lord Jesus Christ who lived a kind of lifestyle that the world considers to be exceptional, but which is normal to us who are of the kingdom of the Father of Light."
In this series, we have been looking into those little little things that gathered together to make our Lord Jesus Christ great. Read Part 1 or Part 2 of the series.

In this Part, we will yet look at another simple step that leads to Jesus Christ's greatness. Our Bible pointer for this part is in the book of Philippians 2:5-11 that says,

"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: [6] Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: [7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upo…

THE SECRET DEEDS OF JESUS CHRIST THAT MADE HIM GREAT: part 2

As we look into the very important steps that made our Lord Jesus Christ the greatest on earth and greater more in heaven, here is yet another simple step into His greatness before or after this.

Our Bible pointer for this step is in the book of Hebrews 12:2 that says,

"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."
This verse is one of the most memorised verses of scripture among the believers; particularly that phrase "the author and finisher of our faith". If you asked 100 believers to quote this verse offhand, hardly could you see 20 that could do so without leaving out the rest of the verse. Yet the verse holds one of the major keys into the treasure of heaven. The verse alone contains three sentences that separately express the manifestation or outcome of three steps of action in relation to completion of one after t…

BECOME LIKE JESUS CHRIST: WHY AND HOW?

Image
To achieve all your heart desires of any kind as a Christian you must become like Jesus Christ. Becoming like Jesus Christ is not the same thing as achieving the exact things that Jesus Christ achieved on earth, in earth and in heaven. Our aims and objectives in this earth are not the same.

Aims, objectives and purposes are comparative in nature depending on individual. What you want and whatever has been assigned for you to achieve in this single life might never be found among many achievements of Jesus Christ.
So you may say you don't want to raise the dead, walk on the sea, still the storms, open the blind eye, cure diseases, etc. But you just want to build houses, buy vehicle of various designs, have godly family, and of course live a peaceful and lovely and benefitting life with everyone around you. And of a truth, you can live just that and be welcomed into the glorious home of the Trinity in heaven with shout of joy.

This is just Job's kind of lifestyle and of which ev…

THE SECRET DEEDS OF JESUS CHRIST THAT MADE HIM GREAT (Part 1)

Image
As Christians who wants to become as great as Jesus Christ on earth and in heavens, just as our Father in heaven desires, Romans 8:29, and which shows that it is very possible to become like Him, we cannot be so by categoring mainly on His backgrounds as reason for His greatness in any sense. If it is for His backgrounds that God says we should focus and listen to Him for us to be great, then we cannot be like Him in any way, because our mothers were not virgin before and after they gave birth to us. They were probably virgins before they knew our fathers, but never after they came across our fathers - the connection that preceded our conceptions. And for that, every other thing has no value in itself as for us to become like Jesus Christ in comparison to backgrounds.

Therefore, when God instructs us to focus on Jesus Christ, He is telling us to pay attention to what Jesus did and how He did it. It is in that we have our roadmap to heaven's fu…

INTRODUCTION TO THE SECRETS OF THEIR GREATNESS

Image
The earth has produced a good number of great personalities in both sexes that are now God's roadmaps for us to follow, if we ever desire to be great in any calling or ministry, such as: religion, business, politics, corporate career, education, etc. And of a truth, this generation is not slacking following these personalities through any available means - social media, conferences, seminars, workshops, formal and informal gathering, one-on-one conversations, mentoring, etc. However, the expected results are truly not manifesting.

So the question is: Why are we not getting the expected results? The problem is that we are more interested in success stories of these personalities and we focus on them than the stories of their fallings and risings, trials and fighting, sacrifices and pains, etc. And whenever we listen to such aspects of their stories,

we quickly associate their victories to something like their backgrounds, experiences, mental capacities, etc. forgetting that such th…

GOD WISHES TO DO FOR YOU TOO WHAT HE DID FOR JESUS CHRIST

Image
Sometimes ago, on one of my evangelical outings, a friend and I came across a group of young handsome looking guys in their workshop. From their looks one could tell that they didn't want us around, but one who seemed to the owner of that workshop welcomed us as most people often welcome street evangelists. He made us feel comfortable within the little space in the shop. Being allowed by the head, some of the other guys stayed, while the rest just found a way to execuse themselves.

We prayed together without any of the guys closed their eyes and their boss busy pressing the cell phone in his hand. After the prayer, my partner started preaching about the sin of humanity and the love of God through Jesus Christ. None of them really shown a sense of interest and their boss was just busy pressing his phone without lifting his head. Awhile later, my partner stopped and I asked me if I had something to say to which I answered yes. I opened my Bible and about to talk, when the boss look…

OVERCOMING THE FOUR DEMONS THAT POLLUTE THE PRAYERS OF THE YOUTH

Image
As a Christian youth, it is never wrong or a sin to pray God for money, wife or husband, cars, houses, food and every other good thing of this world as some are doing. And a good number of some are not even DIRECTLY concerned themselves with these things of the world, theirs are ministries and places in the church. As a matter of fact, the fathers of faith ask us to pray continually - not relaxing. And God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, also commands us, "Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession" and in another place He says, "I will satisfy you with the riches of the earth."

And, indeed, our youths have not been silently praying God for these things. But, the truth of the matter is that heaven seems locked up, particularly to these prayers and this explains why many Christian youths are getting out of the church to check elsewhere for it. They think God is dead; for even thos…
