Americanah, Jesus and my new favorite phrase

Americanah; Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:
This book was doing its rounds on social media for a while this year, creating quite a buzz that made me feel that I HAD to read; which I did. It’s a great book, I enjoyed reading it. I couldn’t put it down and stayed up late reading it because I just had to find out what happen next.

Confessions of an Intercessor.

Jane Doe walked me to our then youth pastors office and announced that I will be taking over her role as the head of the Intercessory ministry; I gasped , I didn’t think it was a done deal, we had talked about it but as far as I was concerned I was still ‘praying’ about it. She probably figured this was the best way to do it because if I continued to ‘pray’ about it I may never hear Gods’ voice. Therein lay one of my many struggles as an Intercessor.

A new normal

You have heard that it was said…But I say to you…

Jesus called us to go the other way; he gave us a different kind of normal. Exhorting us to go the direction that is contrary to what we feel/think is right, contrary to what is popular, contrary to how we were raised, contrary to what is socially acceptable.

Eye for eye tooth for tooth, is that going to get us anywhere? Here’s what I propose if someone strikes you, stand there and take it. If someone drags you to court and sues for the shirt off your back, gift wrap your best coat and make a present of it. And if someone takes unfair advantage of you, use the occasion to practice the servant life. No more tit for tat stuff. Live generously. Mathew 5:38 (The Message)

RICH RICH RICH

It will be great when we are dead.

That's what people think the Christian faith is about. Especially those of us who have never really experienced God in their lives. They think that it's "Pie in the sky after you die".

People feel that to be a Christian is to miss out on all the fun and be tied down to a poor, boring life full of restrictions.

But that's not what our faith is like. See, your life is better when God is in it. In every single way, you will succeed more in your life if you follow Christ.
