Brave Ones

To the brave ones

Who dare to love


In all circumstances

Keep loving

And never

Give up

Love is the oil

That binds all

Humans together

Love is life

And life is love

And about loving

Brave ones

Living in a cold

And cruel world

Keep loving

And never give up


Sometimes, love is difficult, not convenient and comfortable. Most of the time, it requires effort, sacrifice, diligence, duty, loyalty and commitment. We must make up our minds to love others with the commitment and devotion of Christ. We must be committed to love with the grace the comes through Christ.

It is not about comfort or convenience but about duty, loyalty and commitment. Regardless of who it is – spouse, children, siblings, parents, friends or the wider community, we should try to love others the way we expect them to love us and be good to us. No human loves or expects evil from others but are quick to be stingy at love and give out selfishness and evil.

The Bible commands us to owe others nothing but love. We owe others love – period. Love is our high calling, devotion, duty, and life. It is a commitment of the will that shuns and shies away from convenience and comfort. Love is sacrifice and hard work. We don’t love because it is convenient or comfortable and God made it that way to test and examine us.

My dear friends, let us all make effort to love always for that is our high calling in Christ. May great grace be upon us always to live and love like Christ.

Faith And Power

“But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” (Acts 6:4 NKJV)

And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people (Acts 6:8 NKJV)

Stephen was full of faith and power. Note that the Bible separates faith and power as two different things. Faith is not power and power is not faith. However there is a link. There is a third component of these variables known as prayer.

Faith is of the soul and it is given by God through the word of God. Power is a spiritual substance which God decorates His vessels of honor with. We put on faith when we go into prayer to seek God’s face and power. Power is released as the ultimate gift from heaven, however, faith and prayer must precede power. There is no short cut to the power of the Holy Spirit. Prayer should be fervent and effectual accompanied by righteousness, persistence and patience.

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16

Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. Luke 18:1

We are to approach God’s throne with faith and confidence in the place of prayer, putting on the complete armor of God. If we are persistent and we do not give up, God will defeat all our enemies and anoint us with the Holy Spirit and power.
