The sound of Christmas jingles on radio and tv, decorations on streets,banks,churches etc all point to the fact that Christmas is fast approaching.
Christ is the reason for the season is fast becoming a cliché if it isn’t already.
But is Christ really the reason for the season,or are we caught up in the excitement of the season-making merry,wining and dining- forgetting the one who hung up on the cross for us and purchased our salvation.
Now don’t get me wrong I’m not saying we shouldn’t eat fried rice with chicken and drink sprite.My question is, is Christ really being projected during this season? or are we lost in the mass of activities that accompany the Christmas season.
I remember vividly while growing up, the thought of Christmas was that of getting new toys,new clothes,getting to eat the biggest meat I had ever eaten throughout the year.
I’m much older now, I can’t confidently say that the Christ in Christmas has really been what I look forward to or projecting him has been my goal.
But I’m making a decision today and henceforth to make Christ the reason for the season,and not just in Christmas but everyday I live through in the way I live and what I do.
In other news,It’s been a while since I came here tho, I’ve been learning to play the guitar, plus I wanted to be the first to wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS in advance. MERRY CHRISTMAS

Theirs was an enviable love story. Mary and Frank were two kids in love; one didn’t need a prophet to tell you this. You could literally see love beneath every smile that came to light on Frank’s face every time they were together. The duo always had what seemed like endless conversations which didn’t seem to bore them, they enjoyed it because it strengthened the intimacy they had for each other. The way their hands seemed to interlock perfectly as they walked along the streets was what made them the talk of the town .Frank loved Mary and this was not one thing he was going to hide as a matter of fact, Mary was always the discussion when Frank was with his friends, he never got tired of telling others about her.
A relationship like Frank and Marys is what Jesus, the true epitome of Love is asking of us. He demonstrated his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Rom 5:8.
Love (Jesus Christ) loved us even before we knew how to love.
Our love for him should be such that he is first in our lives and nothing else is greater ,people should come to him through our expression of his love to others. We should not be mute about his love for Him, we should tell others about Him. Rom 1:16
After 232 words, what am trying to say is simple and short LOVE GOD. This is where I’ll be dropping my pen today and don’t forget that i love you and you already know JESUS loves you more .HAPPY NEW MONTH.

Hey there Chinedum here again, thanks for stopping by and today i decided to tell you all about my team. Don’t stop-follow me on this one, am not one of them die hard football fans even though i support Arsenal and have a jersey i bought, because i had to go to a programme tagged Jersey Sunday. Football clubs and teams is not my discussion today and won’t be any time soon. Taking a closer look, i decided to do a compare and contrast with the football teams we can relate to and my team .Hope this blesses someone enjoy the read.
Unlike the eleven players needed to form a full team in football,only two members is enough to be called a complete team.Even though we are more than that ,you can see some of them in churches,prayer meetings ,in the bus,streets,social media they are just everywhere .Team members are ever FRESH because we are wonderfully and fearfully made plus we always eat his word and drink from the living waters.
Every team has its logo, so do we in my team, and am sure you’re guessing what our logo is right now. Our logo is the cross because on that cross our team captain did it all for us and his last words were ‘it is finished’, you might see some carry it about that’s the reason. Don’t get confused with those that idolize it, they are not on our team.The only one we worship is HIM.
We don’t go about running in a rectangular pitch for 90mins, wearing shorts and nike boots.Our dress code is a lot different with that and it deals more of the inner outfit the one you can see.We put on helmets of salvation,for belts we use the truth,for shirts we put on righteousness,for shoes we put on peace that comes from the Good news.In addition to those,we hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil,lest i forget the sword of the spirit which is the word of God .Did i say sword? Yes i did ,we don’t play matches we fight battles.
Since we don’t play matches, you already know that we don’t score goals .Instead we win souls that’s our goal;increasing the population of our team and depopulating hell.When any one of us wins a soul, our audience in Heaven celebrate and jubilate.You need to see the stunts the angels be pulling up there .lol
Am a team member so lemme tell y’all about how much i was signed for. Apparently, when i joined i was inquisitive to how much i was bought, because i knew it would have cost our coach much to buy me from my former team(TEAM SIN) because, he made me believe that i owed him a lot and all the wages i got equaled DEATH. I learnt i was bought for the most expensive price in the world ,THE BLOOD OF THE ONE WHO OWED SIN NOTHING AND HAD CREDIT FROM SIN. Apparently that makes me the most expensive player ever bought.I wondered why i was bought for so much a price, even though i hadn’t any impressive skills at all .You want to know why? join the team today and find out
This post would be incomplete without telling you about my coach.The one responsible for the success of the team,I call him father but some call him Abba,King of Kings etc.The list is endless but he is popularly called JESUS CHRIST,he died on the cross paid for your salvation and bought you from sin,so wouldn’t you go and get it now.It’s free of charge mind you. Join the team today and see your name all over the dailies in Heaven.
If you would like to join this team today, why not say this prayer with me
Dear father and coach i believe that you died for me ,i confess you as God over my life i declare am a member of your team today pls come and dwell in my heart in Jesus name i pray.
If you said the prayer above, welcome to the team and for those already on TEAM JESUS lets keep repping for Jesus and getting more team members till my next post i loooove you and you already know Jesus Christ loves you more …….AGAPE
