Thought of the day


“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth (Colossians 3:2).”

The admonition to set your affection on things above means to have control on your mind and consciously set your thinking on spiritual things. Remember that the things you think about are the things that will control your actions.


Your mind is a very powerful machine; you can twist or control it any way you choose. So, what you must do is to first, consciously refuse to think on those things you know aren’t wholesome, and deliberately focus your mind on the Word.

Be About His Business

….while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven (Acts 1:10-11).

The Master’s return is for sure, and closer than ever. For that reason, we must be about His business. Become consumed with the pursuit of His Kingdom. Seek, above all, the rule and reign of His Kingdom in the earth and in the hearts of men. He needs to find us busy, doing what He told us to do. In John 14:15, He said, *“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”*

Some are asking how soon He’s coming back. Is it a matter of days, weeks, months or years so they can prepare and keep themselves clean before He comes. The time shouldn’t matter, as long as you’re in fellowship with Him. Walking in the light of His Word and of your salvation, you’ll be confident of His return. Praise the Lord!

No “Contrabands”

…but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).

To understand this better, consider the custom service section at the entry port of any country. They’re mandated to scrutinize passengers, and in high alert cases, use more sophisticated machines to provide animated images of suspicious items. Right there, the traveller’s eligibility is ascertained, either for entry or denial into that country. That’s what the Spirit is telling us: you have the responsibility to “prove” or scrutinize what you allow into your world! There’re contrabands—things that aren’t consistent with your divine nature in Christ—like anger, bitterness, frustration, etc.; don’t allow them into your life.

Remember that the Bible says, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23). You’re to consciously mount a garrison, a blockade, over your heart against the negativities of life. It’s your responsibility, and you have the power and authority to do it. Hallelujah!

God’s Word is light.

Psalm 119:105 says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”

It’s interesting that it likens the Word to a lamp. A lamp doesn’t have strong beams. You don’t turn on a lamp and leave it in a stationary position; you’d have to carry it with you.

It lets you  know that God’s  Word is something you need every day. The Christian life is a journey; every day is a fresh day to serve God; a new day to please Him, and walk in the path that He’s ordained for you; you need His Word for guidance and direction.

The  way  to  follow  Him  is  through  the Word. Make God’s Word your compass for navigating through life.

Thought of the day


“But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his (Romans 8:9).”

God’s Word reveals your identity, heritage, origin and ability in Christ Jesus; it’s a mirror. Your responsibility is to accept the picture of you that the Word projects, and live accordingly. Your recreated human spirit is perfected in Christ; so, what then? Galatians 5:16 states what you’re supposed to do and the result: “…Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”

Walk in the Spirit, it means walking in the light of God’s Word; walking in the light of who you are in Him.
