VALIDITY PERIOD



             

We all come to the end of our lives as naked and empty-handed as on the day we were born. We cant take our riches with us.
Ecclesiastes 5:15

I was in between two choices on MTN (telecom service provider)'s data bundle.
My Android phone is fun to use but the data plan from my service provider isnt fun at all. I have to choose between the pay #1000 get 250mb VALID for one month OR pay #100 get 10mb valid for 1 day.
I have used both but there isnt no plan as satisfying as our monthly Blackberry subscription.

A validity period is the maximum length of time during which something can be used.
If one subscribed for the 10mb plan, the plan becomes invalid and whatever megabyte you have left would be inaccessible once 24 hours go by.
Recently, remaining megabytes are rolled into one's next subscription. It wasnt so in the past.

Our achievements, riches, fame and all are like our megabytes. In life, remaining riches are not rolled into eternity with us.

These achievements have validity period attached to them. It might be 10 years, assuming one "hammered" (got wealthy) at age 25 and died at 35. It might be 3O Years, assuming one got wealthy at 35 and died at 65.

The preacher in Ecclesiastes had observed the validity period of life's glory when he said "We all come to the end of our lives as naked and empty-handed as on the day we were born. We cant take our riches with us".

Phew! What a technical knockout on all our plans. Those estates, that fame, our Toyota Venza and million naira shares at Chevron would soon expire???

When I remember this reality, I cant help but say "Teach me to live in your will, Lord Jesus.

If I killed my girlfriend to marry her fiancé, it will soon be useless. If I sacrifice my father to get wealth from the occult, it would soon be useless.

Validity period!
It hurts when you have nothing in your spiritual account with Christ.
It means nothing when you have SOMETHING in your spiritual account with Christ. Mathew chp 6 says
19.Do not store up for you treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
20.But store up for you treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21.For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

I do not know the validity period on my life; but I am convinced I shall not leave until I have completely accomplished the reason MY CHRIST GOT HOLD OF ME 16 years ago. I know this because; he says "I shall not be cut short"!
Therefore, I am determined to live my life, make decisions, and act ONLY after I have answered this question.
"How does this affect my account with Christ?
What about you?
That offer has a validity period. DONT LOSE JESUS FOR IT.

Love you

IN THE WORDS OF JESUS...

It was the time of the passover. I had seen 32 passover feasts, during which my family and I, my disciples and I (When I began my public ministry), would slay the chosen lamb in honor of the father's ordinance.

In those 32 years, everytime we ate the passover lamb, I was reminded that someday I would be the lamb that was slain.

This 33rd year as I walked into Jerusalem on the 10th day of Nissan when the Lamb was to be chosen, I willingly gave myself as the lamb to be slain.


They hailed, called out to me hosanna meaning "Save Us". With every shout and scream, I was reminded of my purpose. The very reason I was born was to die for these and many to be saved.


Every voice, every stare, every palm tree, stirred in me a strong desire to accomplish my purpose. They thought they were asking me for political redemption but I knew they were asking me for total redemption.


That week, I had the most temptations of my life. My mind fought against the enemy as he tried so hard to mak…

HOW TO SPOT A GOOD MAN

Last night at Insure your marriage  online conference, I was privileged to teach on the subject, Good men are hard to find. Is that  true? Destroying the myths and lies that make women settle for less than God's best.This post is a copy of what I shared with them. I did a different post for a meaty part of the Q and A.  Check it out. Once you are done with this. 

Let's Define God's best
God's best in marriage is a spouse and a situation that sets you up for growth in these areas 👉Spiritual
👉Financial
👉Emotional
👉Relational
The term set up means it may not be in the "package" that you expect because it is first committed to helping you mature into God's picture of you, than it is about making you feel fly.
If you truly understand this, you will be delivered from these on your marital journey, 
Comparison ✅Jealousy✅ impatience/Haste✅ Discouragement
Please don't misunderstand me. I am not saying that your current psychologically sick boyfriend who beats an…
