Hi friends, I trust this meets you well.
It’s been a while I shared a post on this platform. This is not because of any special laziness on my part, but primarily because I’ve been pondering on my next line of action in terms of writing.
Writing for me was a hobby which grew out of my reading aptitude. However, with the passage of time and better understanding, it is growing for me into a ministry, a career and a calling. It is something I have to do not because I have time or I desire to write, but because I have a debt that I must pay- to my God and to my generation.
Paul said, “For if I do this willingly, I gave a reward; but if against my will, I have been entrusted with a stewardship.” 1 Corinthians 9 vs. 17 (NKJV)
Such is the compulsion also that makes me write.
In this light, therefore, I am glad to invite you to join me on a writing journey for the next few weeks.
I will be taking on three major topics:
- CHOSEN (A NOVEL): Every child that is born into this world is here for a great purpose. However, between the vision and the fulfilment is a great gulf that could make or mar every destiny. CHOSEN is a fictional novel which tells the story of a young boy, Daniel Atuegwu, a young boy who though born out of wedlock, was chosen for a great task. It takes the reader through the story of spiritual and physical happenings around the life of Daniel as he laboured to enter into his God-given destiny. Though a fiction, it is the story of every one of us today. CHOSEN will be published (in episodes) on our website every Sunday before 6pm, beginning from 3rd October 2021.
- THRONES (The Battle for Earth’s Space): The little space of ground on the earth belonging to Northern and Southern Israel faced a lot of contentions from kings and rulers all through the then known world. Battles from without and compromises from within threatened the very cities where God’s covenant with Abraham was actualized. The book of 2 Kings tells the story of various kings and rulers that governed Israel (the North) and Judah (the South), their strengths, mistakes, integrity and compromises. In this book, our eyes will be opened to how God walked with the ancient land of Israel and what finally led to the exile (both of the land of Israel and Judah). Thus, the book of 2 Kings will form the fulcrum of the study on THRONES; and we pray that in this study, God will teach us warfare and how we can indeed take our communities, cities and nations for the Lord. THRONES will be published (in episodes) every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before 6pm, beginning from 5th October, 2021.
- KINGS OF LIFE (Journey with the Heroes of Faith): Romans 5 vs. 17 says, “The sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to be king over all, but all who will take God’s gift of forgiveness and acquittal are kings of life because of this one man, Jesus Christ”(TLB)Most times when we read about heroes of faith and God’s generals, there are popular names that usually resound with us, and most of them are missionaries, evangelists, apostles and such men as operated in the overly religious field. However, I believe that the roll call of God’s generals will not be fully told on earth until we get to heaven. Nevertheless, I intend to take a study of selected heroes of faith who lived for God not only in the religious sector, but also in the ‘ordinary’ sectors of society. In this roll call, we will find teachers, pastors, politicians, business men, civil servants, entrepreneurs, and ordinary men and women “who through faith” achieved great things for God. KINGS OF LIFE will be released (in episodes) every Saturday, beginning from 9th October, 2021.
Your best contribution in this journey is to read and take to heart whatever the Lord tells you. It will be an extra bonus if you can share whatever you read that blessed your life with others also.
Also, of equal importance, please pray for me. I know I may not deserve it from you, but thank God we do not always get what we deserved. Please pray for me, I trust that it is my heart desire to live a life pleasing to my God and to serve my generation in the will of God, but indeed, I have not arrived. There is so much more to still do and to still know.
I pray I will be consistent, as much as the Lord helps me; but I believe I have your understanding incase I default in my deadline atimes.
All posts will be @ www.thechristianinsociety.org;
Thanks, and God Bless You.’
In Hope of Eternal Life,
