Out of these three great forces that rule the world; faith, hope and love, the greatest is love (I Cor.13:13). Without any form of contradiction, love is definitely one of the greatest assets in a Christian’s life. The love of God is what it takes to fulfill destiny in a grand style. Every genuine lover of God ends up a high-flyer.
Oxford Dictionary defines love as deep affection or fondness. You cannot be in love and not know it. Many are faking the thing we call ‘love’ today. Real love is practical and unpretentious. Not love to be seen or to be known but love that emanates directly from the heart. The Bible says “God is love”. That is, God is not faith but God is love and the more of God’s nature you carry, the more superior life you live. We recognise that love is one of the fruits of the Spirit, but when you are baptised in the Holy Ghost, there is a stirring up of that good quality in your life because love empowerment is one of the vital ministries of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit causes the love of God to burst forth on your inside for profitable living. He comes in like a catalyst and causes a supernatural eruption of the nature of God in you.
Love is the predominant nature of God. Rom.5:5 say, Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes, we take decisions that are far-reaching and could have detrimental effects on our lives as well as the lives of those whom we say we love. Many people, who have experienced emotional wounds and are in pain, have had those wounds inflicted by their “loved ones”. Much harm has been done all in the name of love.
My wife, Nike, lost her mother when she was ten years old. Nike was the youngest child and the only daughter of her parents. My father-in-law who was in his early thirties when his wife died never remarried; he poured all his energy and love into his children. He treated all his children equally but everybody knew Nike was the apple of his eyes.
I met Nike when we were both in university in England. I really liked Nike and thankfully, Read the rest of this entry »

It is not uncommon in this part of the world for relatives to pressure men into taking second wives when the current wife is having problems getting pregnant. Understandably, they do this out of concern and desire to help the situation, but infidelity (adultery) never solves a problem; sin can never produce life, it leads to death.
The room for a second wife does not exist in the plan of God for any man; otherwise he would have made two or more Eves for Adam. Not even the excuse of childlessness should make any man take such a step. In creating the institution of marriage, God said “It is not good that man be alone, I will make a helper comparable to him” (Gen 2:18). The first and, most important reason for marriage is to provide through life; it goes beyond having children, though this is good and desirable.
When a couple get married and it seems that they are unable Read the rest of this entry »

Our History ….like a mustard seed
R.C.C.G., Chapel of Mercy is part of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) worldwide founded in Lagos, Nigeria West Africa in 1952 by late Rev. Josiah Akindayomi, its first General Overseer.
The history of The Redeemed Christian Church of God speaks of the marvel of God’s grace. In 1952, Reverend Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi started The Glory of God’s Bible Society (Egbe Ogo Oluwa). Although Rev. Akindayomi was an illiterate, in an open vision, God revealed the name “The Redeemed Christian Church of God” to him and he was asked to copy it down. It was only the next day he gave the drawing to a young man who told him the meaning of the writing. From that small beginning, God began to move His church forward by leaps and bounds.
Before his death, Rev. Akindayomi was led by the Holy Spirit to appoint his successor, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, a PHD holder in applied mathematics and a senior lecturer at the University of Lagos. God began to multiply His church and the church that started with about 13 people in 1952 has grown to over 15,000 parishes in Nigeria alone. R.C.C.G., has presence in over 103 countries today.
Among the numerous parishes established in Lagos, the economic capital of Africa’s most populous nation – Nigeria, is a unique parish named R.C.C.G., Chapel of Mercy. The parish was established by handful of dedicated workers and ministers on the 26th day of September, 2000.
The focus of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Chapel of Mercy (also referred to as “The Potter’s House”) is building a people of purpose and power.
