It pays to serve God. For every born again and Jesus has become Lord over our lives, what do you do for him.
How for you serve God is going to church? what we mean by service?
Serving God in our spirit- through the word of God, faith, through worship. You can not serve God with your spirit without your body.
God rewards you for your faithfulness not for your responsibility or the weight for it. And you passionate and sincere about what you want to do for God. Examine your life as an individual and find out how you respond.
What specifically do you do for the Lord? and how do you do what you do?
Follow God’s example of diligently doing his father’s business. Not up today and down tomorrow. But up and burning for live. Your fire ought always to be on. When you are inactive in the things of God it affects your growth.
Anything you do in the house of God opens doors of blessings for you. It’s not my church or your church, it’s the house of God. You don’t need anyone to say thank you because you should do it as unto to Lord. You may do all such things and no body ever says thank you, it’s a work for you, it’s for God.
Don’t be a lukewarm Christian who is neither hot nor cold. God’s children should always have a desire to do the things of God, never tired, but ever ready. Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do work heartily as for the Lord, not for men.
Serving God brings to you opportunity for greatness, and it promoted you as God begins to remind them of you. Do things of Value to the Lord. Ephesians 6:7 Hebrew 12:28, Mark 10:43.
1 Sam 17:14
You are not rewarded for your position but for your faithfulness. Are you faithful or you blame people for your mistakes?
Wisdom is the ability to walk in discretion and consistency is that ability to make a decision follow on through, is as good as the one who didn’t know enough to make the decision 2 Timothy 2:20.
Have you been faithful to your call. Have you been faithful with the little he bestowed upon you.
1. look to yourself- be honest with yourself. 2. look at the word and let for your corrections. Galatians 6:7. don’t allow the world correct you. God is more interested in you knowing the word than sowing seed. 3. look at God everyday of your life. Psalm 123-2, Deuteronomy 8:17, 2 Corinthians 3:5. your ability is of God alone and he is working in us.
Isaiah 60:1 Arise To arise means change your posture and position, Change your mindset and change your friends so that you can see what God is doing. To arise means to change your attitude and placement because God wants to lead you alright and give God your attention. your attitude defines your change in life.
2 peter1:5, sow to your faith good character. Honor people than are older than you. Our culture in this ministry is respect and giving. Don’t give men too much attention and give God less attention. position yourself everyday where you can hear God to know what he is saying. life is governed by principles not chance. move away from places or people of discouragement, don’t allow anyone discourage you and everytime you are in the place of discouragement you can’t hear God. Don’t look back, at your lost course, don’t look back on your wrongs. move towards something good Ecclesiastes 11:9 if something looks good to you pursue it. Be focused on the master’s Jesus needs, see things from Christ perspective_ Colossians 3:1. 1. Soul winning 2. build people; develop a lifestyle of faith, develop a lifestyle of prayer, 3. send them (John 15:16)
The following are the important tips used in creating a mind-blowing article for publication
A report simply means to do something again, to retell, recount something, an incident or event in details.
A good report gives an account of an event that was witnessed; of an investigation that was carried out; and of some work that has been done. Reports are quite formal and factual, except where you have to draw conclusions from stated facts. Reports are based on observations, research and investigations. A good report answer the basic questions, what? when? where? who? And how?
Types of reports
Eye witness report: examples are robbery, accident, fire outbreak, riot, demonstration. This calls for a narrative writing.
Work report: These are routine reports like the report on the progress of a building, the report on the proceedings of a meeting, a report on a school administration
Investigation report: These involves reports of investigations carried out together with the conclusions and the results arrived at the end as a result of the investigation.
A report comprises of the following:
A catchy heading; usually underlined.
It should include the main issues (who, what when, where and how) straight to the point.
Use of proper linkers especially transitional expressions like however, furthermore, otherwise, indeed, besides, finally, and so on
Should be in chronological order (one leads to another) to present your ideas.
Your report should only important details without using big words which might bore your readers.
State only the truth. Write in past tense.
At the end of your report, give your full name, your official position and your address.

An article is a written composition in magazines and newspapers meant for the consumption of the public. A good article must be interesting and attention arresting enough, such that once your reader engages reading your write up, he/she won’t drop it until the end, even the editor will not be bored at all.
Types of articles

Descriptive articles: Here, the writer is required to describe an event, occurrence or a place. Examples of such articles on a traditional marriage ceremony, an accident, and so on
Expository articles: this is concerned with an issue that is topical and of great interest to the public. Examples includes articles on lack of amenities, scarcity of water, activities of armed bandits, menace of beggars and so on.
A good article comprises of the following:
A catchy title which should be short and capitalized or underlined.
There should be proper linking paragraphs addressing a topic sentence.
At the end of the article, write your full name and surname. This should be at the right hand side of your article, with your address and phone number.
Should answer the WH questions (What/who, why, when, where, and how.)
Avoid the use of contracted forms like, can’t, won’t, shan’t, wouldn’t and so on.
Avoid the use of slangs
Ensure your facts are real and not based on assumptions.
Should be written in double line spacing, Times New Roman, not less than 500 words.
A good writer is not one that criticizes but one who admonishes.
Everything you need to run the race is within you, all you need to do is to uncover these potentials and explore them
The day I had to leave my boarding school because I was diagnosed of asthma, it was a painful experience for me but I recall vividly one word my principal, Rev. Doc Mercy Ani said to my parents, “I’m confident she has all she needs, and she can do exploits anywhere in the world”, she said.
When she made this statement back then I was paid little or no attention to it, but looking back now at the event unfolding in my life, I understand better that life and time actually waits for none.
The world is not waiting for another Dickson and Harry, No. The world is not waiting for another David, the world eagerly awaits the manifestation of the light you emit(what you have stored inside) the world is waiting for you to stand up.
You enact the change you want to see, you don’t just sit around watching movies all day and expect a miracle money come your way, NO. You don’t just sit groping about your problems and suddenly expect a Millionaire to remember you, certainly not.
Look within, ask yourself;
what do I want out of life,
what do I want to be remembered for,
what can I offer my world.
And if at the end of the day the answers to all these questions are negative, then you seriously need to work on yourself more. The earlier you start building and investing in your personal growth, the sooner you become who you want to be. Remember, it all starts with you.
We live in a society scattered with needs for improvement and betterment, and the solution to these problems lies within you and I. A wise make once said, ‘the real success are people who refuse to give up’ Remember, it all starts with you.
John 15:11 KJV:These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
All of God’s desires is to see you overflow in his fullness of joy, rest and riches. He wants you to taste him in your prayers and end up seeing and testifying that He is good. Our God is not a wicked God, he desires more than anything that you are enveloped in the very fullness of joy when you ask and receive it, even when you receive the word and see results.
He went as far as giving you the gift of sonship and grace to come boldly to him as your father, just so that you can feel free to come running to him when things are hard and sweet. God is not only interested in you when you have it all(Rosey, nice and happy), he is also interested in your every pain and tear, thorn and sorrows.
He gave us his words as a weapon against the devil and his spirit as a union with him to communicate with.
Learn to casting all your cares, fears, worries and burdens entrusting them all to him as allowing him take full charge of the situation. All these he did that your joy may be full.
As loving as he is, he still says come to me when you feel like you are at the end of the road and all hope is lost, when you feel heavy burdened and broke He says come and I will give you rest. Come! for I am the prince of peace. Come, and I will give you rest!
I personally have tasted of this dimension of God whereby I simply I go to him feeling down cast, low, disturbed, worried and even burden with alot on my mind and I simply pour all of it on him in Thanksgiving, and sincere prayer or surrender, from then on, I embrace his peace, joy and March forward with a new vibe of freshness. You too can tap from this source continually and enjoy the strength he gives to run the race called life.
John 15:15 KJV:Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Hallelujah, Our Level don change! The job of a servant/slave is just to do the will of his Master. In everything the servant is to always seek to please his Master in respect and honor. While is friend knows the master. His strength, weakness, likes and dislikes. But a son, a son is the owner it all, the sons enjoys everything the master has without restrictions. From the point where we surrender and submit all to our Lord, then we come boldly to our Father without fear or favour.
Jesus speaking to his disciples says we are not just his servants/slaves. But now he has called us friends and bestowed us all his riches in power and glory.
As friends never hide things from each other, so has Jesus made us his friends to always know and walk in the will of God. Now, we are joint heirs(sons) with Christ, showin g the character of Christ as He keeps leading daily to the Father.
John 15:16 KJV:Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
Your life is the message to the world. Yes you are His chosen nation not just an empty vessel. You are of the lineage of Kings and priests who do nothing but ensure the will of the father is brought to light. You were chosen by God, begotten by his love, ordained by his grace so that the product of your life is his riches in power and glory bearing fruits of light. Also joint-heirs with Christ. Now as ordained priests of God, we come boldly not just as slave or friend like in the days of Moses or David, we approach him as SONS of our father. Through the spirit who now bears witness with us that we are sons/daughters of God.
Our privileges extends as John 8:35-36 says, Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Now we are not just saved, we save others. We are not just healed, we heal others. We don’t just get solutions and answers to our prayers, we are the answer to others prayers. We’re not just delivered, we deliver others by the authority given to us in the name of Jesus and that at the mention of that name(Jesus), every knee bow.
Don’t give the devil a chance. 1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
The plans of the devil has always been to thwart the agenda of God for your life. He comes to steal your joy, kill your faith and destroy your convictions through wickedness, because he knows that God has only the best in stored for you. Thank God we are not ignorant of his devices, but for many we fail to see this cunny agenda of the devil, and instead choose to fight the wrong enemy thinking we are solving the problem not knowing we are making it worse.
One day I had a misunderstanding with my younger brother and before you could say Jack Robinson, the small misunderstanding had escalated to a big issue, emotional as I am as a result that day I couldn’t pray as usual, I felt very sad. It was later that the holy Spirit whispered to me that I was looking at the wrong enemy, I was hesitant to admit it because everything points to the fact that I was clearly misunderstood. It was clear and simple, “Humans is not your enemy!” And that is what most of us do. Like me, we are always carried away with the situation trying to how best to deal with it. Human beings are not your enemy.
When I later discovered what the devil had planned for my family, I stopped all and stood to up pray. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.(Ephesians 6:12)
We have pampered the devil enough, RESIST THE DEVIL, it is time to uphold our weapons of warfare, for the weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. [2 Corinthians 10:4]
Our sure way of defeating him for us hit the rod while it’s still hot and that is to RESIST THE DEVIL and he will runaway from us. For we have overcome by the blood of Jesus Christ.
