Running the race of faith (1): Shed the extra weight

Hi there, I trust God has been consistently #faithful to you as He is to me! I figured; His #love for us is so intense! So deep!
Ok, this is going to be a two-part series of posts on "running the race of faith" (anchor Scripture: Hebrews 12:1-2).
We'd be looking at the Scripture to learn what we need (and do not need) to "run with endurance the race that is set before us" (v. 1). This is part one of the series, subtitled: "shed the extra weight". I trust that God will help us as we learn what we need to run this race of faith successfully. Do enjoy...

Guest Post: Contentment || by Kolapo Tunmise

The subject of contentment is one that many misunderstand greatly, with differing views and arguments as to what it actually means. But, what is contentment? Should a Christian be contented with whatever he has, or should he strive for more? What exactly did Apostle Paul mean by being "content" in whatever state he was?
Great insight is provided into these questions and much more in this great piece by Kolapo Tunmise...

How and where do I start? Let me start by expressing my heartfelt appreciation to you for selecting me as a guest writer on your platform. Thanks a ton!

Now, to our discussion. The bible says to "be content with such things as you have" (Hebrews 13:5). Paul the Apostle could testify, "I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content" (Philippians 4:11). And writing to Timothy, he stated, "But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content (1 Timothy 6:6-8).

What God's omnipresence means to me, and to you

The word 'omnipresence' means being present everywhere at the same time. It is an appellation reserved for God alone; He is the only one referred to as omnipresent.

Every other creature or being is limited by the constraints of time and space - but not God. He created time, but is not hindered by it; He created space, but is not hindered by it. He is omnipresent - everywhere, all the time.

If you can fall in love, why not fall in hate?

Image source:

I'm sure you've heard people say "I fell in love" (or you've probably said it yourself), but have you ever heard anyone say "I fell in hate" when asked why they do not like someone? Why is that? Why do people only (according to them) "fall in love", but never "fall in hate"?

Are you fit for use? How to become fit for God's use

I watch a lot of football, I'm a huge enthusiast. Apart from the Gospel of Jesus, football is something I can easily blog about (I don't mean it would be "easy", this just implies that I really like it and it would flow quite seamlessly).

One reason I really like football, apart from its thrill and excitement, is that it is a deep sea of knowledge as it is sort of a depiction of the reality of life.

Jesus: the thread that holds everything in place

This beautiful illustration of my life and Jesus' place in it just dawned on my heart this afternoon while reflecting and gave me a fresh understanding, and a new appreciation of me.

You know, there's this indescribable feeling you get when you realise someone considers you really important and valuable to them. Now, imagine such one is Jesus! Imagine what He thinks of you! When you realise what He really thinks of you, you'd feel like I do now... 'kingly'....that's how I feel writing this. It's so refreshing!

So, here's the beautiful illustration as it dawned on my heart (I'm not sure if I captured all the emotions and imaginations in these words, though, but I hope it ministers to you)...

Jesus is God revealed

"...He who has seen me has seen the Father..." - John 14:9.

Image source:

Jesus is the God REVEALED. He reveals what God is like to us. He is the full display and embodiment of all that God is - His character, nature, power.

In Jesus, God's plan and purpose for mankind is fully manifested. And through Him, God will bring every of His thought to pass.

Whatever cannot be attributed to Jesus, cannot be attributed to God. Likewise, all that can be attributed to Jesus can be attributed to God, too. They are one and the same; "I and my father are one", He said.

All we did not know about God until Jesus is revealed fully in and through Him. Also, whatever we need to know about God will be found in and through Jesus.

If you know Jesus, you know God. If you do not know Jesus, you do not, and cannot, know God.

Not only is Jesus THE way to God, He is God!
Not only is Jesus THE saviour of the world, He is God!
Not only is Jesus THE CHRIST, He is God!
Not only is Jesus THE truth, He is God!
Not only is Jesus THE son of God, He is God!

Do you know Jesus? Do you have Him in your life? The first step to becoming all that God has in store for you is knowing Jesus. Without Jesus, you can't fulfil God's purpose for your life, because they are one and the same. He is the God revealed!
