My Bible Today – June 24

Anger has being behind most disastrous events,
from mass shootings, to domestic violence..
among others. And this suggests to us the need
to put ourselves under control. God’s word is
that control! Meditate on the same daily and the
very nature of God, who is slow to anger would
naturally start reflecting through you and I.
Anger hasn’t solved any problem since inception of man,
it rather complicates it!

My Bible Today – June 23

The Father’s willingness to give us whatsoever we
need (note: not ‘want’) is remarkable; as stated
in different pages of scriptures, and it is as well
important we embrace this fact which would inevitably
trigger the faith required to bring the same into
existence, as faith comes by accepting the fact of
God’s word. Our Father wants you healed, He wants you
fine, and He wants you satisfied with the good things
of life. Pull the trigger of faith by asking him
whatsoever your desires are. Happy receiving..

The place of the mind when it comes to handling the affairs of men here on earth
can’t be over emphasized; as the same was built for logical and analytical problem
solving, among others.. And so far it is God who built this Master piece inside
each and everyone of us, He expect us to maximize its use! Being spiritual therefore,
doesn’t negate the use of the mind, in fact since we have the mind of Jesus Christ, we
are expected to operate at a more deeper level when it comes to mental prowess!
In the light of these, engage your mind consciously in problem solving, though not
despising the place of prayer and adhering to divine directives from time to time.

A Change of story is birthed by a new approach;
which is sponsored by a changed mind set, obviously
inspired by access to a new fact.
This is what Romans 12:2 implies.

It is therefore important that we dedicate quality
time to studying
the bible, books and other materials that
would culminate into the
renewing of our minds, which would
certainly birth our transformation!

Hi, in today’s devotion, we shall be addressing the truth in
2 Peter 2:2-3 that unveils to us that the dimension or extent of
God’s manifestation we would experience in our lives is directly
linked to how far we know His ways, in other words, His word.
It is therefore necessary that we change our approach as regards
studying God’s word; from being just a mere daily routine to
conciously digging into the same to find out God’s say concerning
any area of our interest. Grace awaits you at the other side.

May the Lord bless the reading of His word in our hearts. Amen.

Welcome to another amazing episode of our daily short devotional.
In the Scriptural text of today, we could see literally that
God was certainly waiting for Job to pass the “Love Test” before
He could restore all he lost. Same friends who mocked him to his
face, became his prayer target; that’s amazing!
Never should you fall a victim of a bitter heart against any
fellow man, because this could be a major disqualifier to your
next levels in Christ Jesus. Keep loving, keep winning!
May the Lord bless the reading of his word in our heart. AMEN.

Please note that without inclination to the dictates of God’s word, a man is sure to walk in error; for man was built to live his entire life time answering the call of obedience to God’s word. Absolute accuracy therefore exists in living in accordance to God’s word, for He has given us all that pertains to life and godliness. Don’t just read, do His words and your ways would be acceptable to Jesus our Lord!

May the Lord bless the reading of His words in our hearts. Amen.

Nigeria: Mourning and Anger in Owo, Ondo State following deadly church attack

After sadness and fear, it is anger that has emerged in Owo town,
southwest Nigeria, following a deadly church attack in the
country’s relatively peaceful region.

Women marched in protest outside the traditional palace of Owo on
Tuesday.

Some of them calls for revenge against those responsible for the
attack in the St. Francis Catholic Church.

‘We are here as market women, Yemi Mahmud said, we are here to
commiserate with the people of Owo, we are to say that enough is
enough, we have a parlance in Owo, we say that “We don’t have war
in Owo” it has never happened, we don’t have war in Owo, Owo is a
peaceful place but this has happened now, it’s strange to us.”

It’s an entire community that is still traumatized by the murder
of at least 22 people including children.

If President Buhari ordered a full-scale investigation, the Ondo
Police Command has not made any arrests yet. According to a
spokeswoman, there was at least 5 assailants.

Meanwhile, Schools and public gathering spots remained closed in
Owo on Tuesday. The Owo kingdom’s monarch, Oba Ajibade Gbadegesin
Ogunoye, brought together ethnic leaders for discussions as he
expressed his fears the violence could escalate further.

Owo’s monarch, warned of a humanitarian crisis should the internal
conflict expand further into southern Nigeria and force millions
of people to flee.

Church of Scotland ready to approve same-sex marriage as General Assembly Begins

The Church of Scotland’s General Assembly starts with a vote on same-sex marriages, a call for a conversion therapy ban and the confirmation of a Declaration of Friendship with the Catholic Church in Scotland as the main points on the agenda.

Earlier this month, the Church of Scotland revealed the majority of the presbyteries are in favour of allowing same-sex marriage after they were asked to express their view on draft legislation drawn up during last year’s General Assembly.

At least 29 presbyteries said they are in favour of bringing forward the legislation while 12 have said they are opposed. A final vote on the issue is expected to take place on Monday.

If passed, ministers will be required to register as a same-sex celebrant and no person would be required to participate in the ceremony or be involved in the arrangements unless they explicitly wish to do so.

The confirmation of a Declaration of Friendship with the Catholic Church in Scotland, which has already been approved, will also be part of Monday’s business. The document seeks to recognise the “hurt and the harm that our forebears did to each other” and “reaffirm that what we hold in common is often greater than what divides us.”

On Tuesday, the Church’s Faith Impact Forum proposal to urge the Scottish government to ban conversion therapy will be debated, as well as the war in Ukraine, support for asylum seekers and progress on work towards Net Zero Church by 2030.

The current Moderator, Lord Wallace of Tankerness will also hand over to his successor Rev Dr Iain Greenshields, minister of St Margaret’s Community Church in Dunfermline.
