A commentary on Acts 3: 1-10. As a child, I learnt the art of understand certain 'looks' my mum gave my brothers and I when we are in public and she didn't want to voice her reaction.The looks varied depending on the severity of our behaviour. Sometimes, you could sense that she was annoyed and other times, you could tell that you were in trouble whenever we got back home.When people look at you, what do they see? Do they see a person who cares for them or do they see someone who is focused on self?One day, Peter and John were on their way to the temple to pray. As they got the the template gate called beautiful, they saw a man who was lame from birth. Every day, he would be carried by others to this gate so he could beg for money from t...

As Christians we are called into a forward motion. No matter what we achieve in our spiritual walk, there is always more. As we progress in our journey however, there is a temptation for us to stall, backtrack or focus on things that blur the purpose for which God has called us.Paul was someone whose focus was on accomplishing excellence in all his undertakings. He took pride in his Jewish birth as well achievement of excellence in his training as a scribe and Pharisee. Paul was raised according to Hebrew customs. He was a Pharisee. Pharisees were the most religiously conservative group of Jews in his time and they were known for strict adherence to Jewish law and customs. They were particularly noted in the Gospels for their devotion to traditions of...

It had taken many months of preparation, mobilising, praying and fund-raising. June 9, 2018 was the day set for the JustOne event which took place at Priestfield Stadium in Gilingham, Kent, South East of England.I arrived early since I was part of the almost 100-strong JustOne Choir perfoming on that day. As we walked to our reserved seats, I felt the presence and the peace of God in that Stadium as people trooped in from the various entrances and making their way to their seats in orderly manner.As you read this, you must be wondering, what is JustOne? JustOne is a vision by Canon J John to preach God's word in large venues all over England to give people of faith and no faith the opportunity to understand and explore the relevance of Christianity.

I recently had the opportunity to speak at an Developers conference in London. It was my first experience speaking at that level and in the days leading to the conference, I was quite apprehensive knowing that I was speaking on the same platform with seasoned conference speakers. I kept looking at my notes and slides and wondering if I had done enough.On the day of the conference, I prayed, laid it before the Lord and set out for the venue. Because I was the 4th speaker, I didn't get to speak until noon. The speakers before me were quite impressive which added more pressure on me to present well.By the time I was introduced, I had lost all the anxiety. God gave the ability to speak with boldness and my talk was rated as one of the most engaging laced...

When driving on UK motorways, it is not uncommon to see billboards with warnings like "Tiredness kills. Take a 15 minute break every 2 hours" or "Tiredness kills. Make time for a break". Tiredness affects many of us on a regular basis. It is caused by constant physical and mental stress which are conscious as well as unconscious. Medical professionals tell us that fatigue is the feeling of being tired and can be caused by stress, anxiety, illness, inadequate sleep, excessive workload among many other factors.I recently struggled with feelings of being tired and I could not readily explain why. I knew that I was dealing with a number of issues requiring my attention but I thought I had them covered but it seemed that unconsciously, I was cons...

What do you do when an opportunity comes calling? Do you seize the moment and take advantage of the opportunity or do you see the opportunity as a potential danger that should be avoided at all costs? The Cambridge dictionary defined opportunity as, an occasion or situation that makes it possible to do something that you want to do or have to do, or the possibility of doing something. Every opportunity is a chance to do something based on some knowledge or circumstance that provides us with the chance to do it. It is often associated with positive things however, people can use opportunities in negative ways especially when taking advantage of other people. Some people for instance use every opportunity they can get to talk. Th...
