This I NO GO GREE attitude many Christians are putting on is not of God at all!

God wants us to be at peace with all men no matter what happens and as far as it depends on you -Romans 12:18
Wait! What is this attitude of self defense and always right for sef? Everyone wants to be right and not corrected for even the wrong they do, this attitude is not of God!
I read Romans 12:18 "If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone". but I realized many Christians prefer to add fuel to the fire and pepper to the soup in order increase the war instead of making peace!
Why are you dragging for position in church because you are an older member, you even try to make the other person look incapable or unfaithful just to gain what you desire! Is this what the bible teaches?
Some of us argue over irrelevant things just because we want to be seen as the correct person, we refuse to learn from others who have something to offer! Is this what the bible said?
As far as it depends on you be at peace with all men, but why are you the trouble shooter and the war beginner! Why are you the one that always starts a fight?

Why do you fuel a fight with your toxic words instead of calming it down with sweet words?
Why are your words so sour that it breaks the heart of men? Are you not supposed to be the SALT of the world? Why do your presence add no taste to an environment, no peace, no happiness, no love but war, disagreement and fight!
I am concerned that as Christians we do not show any sign of humility and self control but we are the ones fighting over food in weddings and church meetings, arguing over little irrelevant matters, causing war instead of showing love!
It is heartbreaking that we are no longer peace makers but war makers! This must stop! It must not be found among us!

We should be PEACEMAKERS and as the salt of the earth add peace, love, joy and happiness to every soul that comes around us!
That we will act with love and show kindness to those who hate and despise us, this was the lifestyle of Jesus and if He is the author and finisher of our faith we must also live as He lived🔥

Be At PEACE With All Men!

If you are in a godly relationship, tell us something you are grateful for in your partner or relationship. Let's share godly relationship goals.

Mine: We read books together, he basically encourages me because that guy reads😩

Also, I have learnt how to fast, like fast!
...and yes, I am better than I was in all aspects of my life.

There's more! We get our intimacy when we spend time talking about Jesus. Its beautiful😭
No sex! No smooching! No kissing! Just God's presence, two people growing into God's purpose for them.

If you are serving God because you want to get something from Him, one day you will wake up angry because you may not get all you desire but when you just love and trust Him, you may not get all you desire but you will get all that's best for you.
We serve God because its our life, we owe everything to Him. So just like the three Hebrew boys, Esther, Daniel, Apostle Paul etc.

It is not about how much God can give to them but how committed and sold out they are to God.
God wants us to come to that place where our confession becomes "If I perish I perish! I cannot choose my life or my desires above you Lord. I love you with everything".

This is the kind of growth God is calling us into🔥

Dear Christian,
The flesh is self exalting, it is self demanding! When the spirit says PRAY, the flesh will say you need to rest. When the spirit says BE CALM, the flesh will give you a hundred reasons not to! If you want to serve God, you must die to FLESH🙇
The flesh always wants to show how much it has achieved for God with small pride.
It wants to be able to show emotions, do whatever it wants without self control.
It doesn't even want corrections from God or the scriptures.
The flesh doesn't want to stay without food so if you want to satisfy it's desires, you cannot fast. You can stay for a whole busy day without eating but come and fast na, you will start shaking😂

I was having a conversation with one Unku who was showing some Interest me and I noticed how he was trying to mention God into everything he was saying, yes he wanted me to see how he knows God but I was not fast to conclude o!
I gave it time, I listened to all he had to say and I could see that he was trying to use the fact I was a child of God to make me feel comfortable but it wasn't so long before I could hear him condemn the standard of purity we are keep as believers!
Oh really, the same brother who sounded so God-loving could say there's no need to waiting until marriage if your family already knows about the relationship! God help us.

I was at a wedding yesterday, but I wasn't fast to say the God When anthem, not because it wasn't a beautiful wedding or because I don't anticipate marriage but because I know there is so much requirements for a GOD KIND OF MARRIAGE.
We all want to be loved by somebody's son or daughter, we want a beautiful house, we want to be loved and receive beautiful gifts from our partners. I want that too but wait fes, is that all?
What God has planned for us is way more than gifts, houses, flowers or even vacations. What God has planned is a home that will glorify Him.

VIRGINITY VS SEXUAL PURITY

I made the decision to remain a virgin from my childhood and that no matter what happened I vowed to keep my virginity.
Growing up, I got involved in several impure acts but I bothered less since I was able to keep my virginity INTACT, I was more concerned with remaining a virgin and not being sexually pure, technically I was a virgin but sexually DEFILED!
I struggled with remaining pure, from what I saw in the media to what I watched in the movies, everything around me was enough to keep me impure.
