How To Put To Work The Things You Learn In Church



One of the things that makes Christianity or the church boring to people is that they never really get to practice what they learn in Church, they just go to church on Sundays, listen to the sermons and after everything just drop their Bibles and sermon notes somewhere till the next Sunday. If you live your Christian life this way, you will never enjoy it and you will never be on fire for God. Therefore, it is important that we learn how to put to work the things we learnt in church so that we don't fall out of the faith or be referred to as "hearers only".

Before we proceed, you must know that for you to put something to work, you must have learnt it first and then for you to learn, you must have positioned yourself in a learning center. And where is the learning center for God's word? The church. So this means that you must not miss church services because the church is the place you'd learn the things you ought to put to work. Also make sure you always take notes. 

Now, below are steps to guide you in putting the word to work. 

  • Be willing 

It starts with a willing heart. Make up your mind that you're going to practice what you learn and that you're not just going to Church to warm the seat or to "fulfill all righteousness".

  • Take it personally 

When the sermon is going on, never see it as a message for another person or another group of individuals. Personalize it, see it as God's message to you and make a decision right there to make it work in your life.

  • Don't argue with the word. 

Some people are fond of this, someone is teaching you something from the word and you're already arguing why you can't do it or why it's impossible to follow it, that's sad. For example, you're being taught about fornication being a sin and while the teaching is going on, you are already arguing in your mind saying "It is impossible these days not to involve in fornication because you have to 'test' or 'taste' first who you want to marry". By this, you've shut your heart to the word and it would not benefit you. And do you think God is unwise? Do you think he'll tell you to abstain from something if it's impossible? Do you think God is a man who would just give you a task he hasn't given you the ability to accomplish? I can hear some people still arguing right now, stop!
Instead of giving yourself excuses why you can't carry out the word, it's better to wait and ask questions from people (who are matured in the things of God) on how to go about it. Don't argue with the word. Open your heart to it and receive it. 

  • Don't try to reason it with your brain. 

Yes. Don't try to reason it with your brain. Once you're sure that it's the voice of the Spirit to you, don't try to calculate what will happen and what will not if you do the word, just do it because it says so. For example, we've learnt to pay our tithes, what should you do? You know it's an instruction from the Spirit, do not try to start reasoning what you could do with the ten percent if you keep it. Don't start asking questions about what the Church would use your money for if you give it. The word says "give it" and you should give it, what happens after with it is not your concern. You have obeyed God's word and that is your own part to play, leave God to take care of the rest. 

  • Be consistent. 

If the word admonishes you to study, study and study consistently. Make out a plan and follow it. If you're in a Department in church rendering service to God (which he tells us to do), be consistent, don't function in a service and then relax for the next two months, always make yourself available no matter the challenge. Another example is the tithe, when you give it, keep giving anytime you get an income, that way it would become easier for you and become a habit and God will start opening your eyes to more revelations. 

I'll stop at this point for now. You can tell me what you think or ask your questions by making a comment.

Funny Ways Unserious Students Behave When It is Time For Exams



We are all aware that at the end of every term or semester in any school, there is an exam to test the student's abilities and knowledge. The purpose of the exercise at the end is to examine the students and determine if they have learnt anything and how much of the things they learnt they can recall. Although being promoted to the next level is dependent on the success of students in their examination, it is sad that students see promotion to the next level as the real reason for exams.

How To Get The Best Out Of Your Church Services

Written by Oyin Oluwatosin Emmanuel 


Every first day of the week is day that has been set aside for us all to go to Church. Some of us go during weekdays also while most people go only on Sundays and some do not even go at all. If you fall under the category of people who do not go at all, I'll advise that you start this Sunday, the Bible says we should not forsake the gathering together of the brethren and you should obey. Remember, the church is the gathering together of the brethren not the building. The Church is the ground and pillar of truth. Go for service today and make a commitment.

Signing Out in Nigerian Schools



It is no longer strange or weird to see graduating students in different levels of institutions celebrate their passing out in "strange" ways. One of these ways involves the final year student putting on a plain white top and his mates and others celebrating with him by literally signing on his or her top with a marker. This act is the one people call  "signing out".
