As we observe this sacred season of the arrival of Salvation to the earth through the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ; a season of hope, love, compassion, care and togetherness. It’s very important that we stand out among the crowd with a unique understanding which will influence the way we do our celebration.

The African child
Made a victim under
Mother nature‘s chide
Upon which we all now must ponder
From dawn to dusk he’ll cry
Comfort he’s unable to acquire.

The African child
Long ago refused to die
Even when Dada and Mama died
Even when destiny seemed to lie
He still refused to die
Though his destiny looked lumbered
Yet his maker neither slept nor slumbered
And even when he hungered
Upon his future he did ponder.

The African child
Though found in the caves
And then taken through tide and waves
Into the slave’s place
His destiny was never enslaved
For his heart stayed sharp
Playing as a harp Making my hands clap.

The African child
Was called a slave boy
Even made a houseboy
Yet in all, he endured the bore
They called him the chimpanzee
And names from A to Z
Yet he refused to care
Nor did he fear
Cos he had the cure of fears
Even to the core upstairs.

The African child
Is a child depicting strength
He depicts wonder
True beauty in and beneath color
True display of inner strenght
To a very luminous lenght
Showing awesome power
More than a gun powder.

When it comes to leadership
He is always luminary
When it comes to challenges
He lunges readily
When it comes to hardwork
He lies at the frontier.

For the African child is luxuriant
And also yet luxurious
He is always lusty
Though sometimes he is lustful
Yet he is a braveheart
With an unwavering mind
“for a double-minded man Is unstable in all his ways
This is what the Bible says
But allow me to also say,
A trouble-minded man Always has a complain to make”.

Now take a look at
The strength of the African child
Forget his skin tone
Look at his strenght
Forget his phonetics
Or his past
But look at his strength
And see the range of honour
Beyond his own ethnics
“for how far you see Will i give forever unto thee And unto thy seed.”

God bless the African child.



From Evang. Billy Graham’s Devotional: OVERCOME TEMPTATION posted on Thursday 20th Feb. 2014, on


Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Psalms 119:11

When temptations come, let me suggest that you ask God for strength–and also to show you the way He has prepared for your escape. One other word of counsel; be very sure that you do not deliberately place yourself in a position to be tempted. All of us are not subjected to the same weaknesses and temptations. To one, alcohol may be the temptation; to another, it may be impure thoughts and acts; to another, greed and covetousness; to another, criticism and an unloving attitude. Regardless of what it may be, be sure that Satan will tempt you at your weak point, not the strong. Our Lord has given us an example of how to overcome the devil’s temptations. When He was tempted in the wilderness, He defeated Satan every time by the use of the Bible.

Prayer For The Day
With the shield of Your Word, I will face temptation, Almighty God.


The writings of James George


The second dimension we will look at is
THE FELLOWSHIP OF LOVE: This fellowship centers the fellowship of sharing, service, encouragement, etc. It is the essense of our living as sons and daughters of God. This (love) is our identity (John 13:35).

The feloowship of love is and will remain the life of our brotherhood; and Giving is the order or expression of it. This fellowship involves sharing God’s word with others, forgiving the sins of others, interceeding for others, mutuality and involvement in the life and situations of others. This fellowship finds fulfillment in making the lives of others much better.

The fellowship of love puts self behind; it is selfless and born(made possible) only when the light has penetrated and is now the base of our living. (Gal. 6:2, Phil. 6, 1st John 4:8, 1:3, 6, James 4:3).

And then we have
THE FELLOWSHIP OF SUFFERING: Please understand in this context that this suffering is not the type the world understands because it is beyond them. Only spiritual can get this because it is a spiritual truth.

This suffering is the crown(fulfillment) of the saint. It is not the state of being in pains or distress caused by uncontrollable events or happenings.
No, this suffering is the constant exercise or testing of our faith, obedience, and passion as believers; this gives us fulfillment and a great sense of spirituality. This was the kind of fellowship the Apostles and early believers were bathed in.
This dimension is expressed when the saint has been possessed by his love for Christ. It is what Christ lived through here on earth. It is the life of passion where a man finds joy in sacrifice because he is aware of its blessing on others and on his future. This fellowship is a fellowship of choice. A paradox of life which the ordinary man never fathom or accept.

“As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.” -2nd Cor. 6:10.

The world can never understand this, and sadly, neither can some believers. This deep dimension is not one we can run from; Christ paid for it and we must walk in it. This is where we can fulfill our destiny, no where else. (Matt. 19:16-29).

The fellowship of suffering is not the life of poverty, or of lack or sickness, etc. No, it is the call of strong faith, great wealth and success, eternal rewards, life and power, both here and in eternity.

Those that will understand this most are those believers in anti-christian environments who experience daily persecutions. It has become their glory to give their lives for something so precious to them:Christ. This is who they live for, live in and is ready to lose their lives for. (Phil. 3:10, 1st Cor. 4:9-16).

Build up yourself in these fellowship with God. Seek Him through the Holy Ghost. Let Him bring you into deep intimacy with Himself and you’ll never be the same again. You will laugh at the face of challenges because you will be reigning over from the seat of Christ’s victory. (Job 5:6-8, Rom. 8:37)
