Uplifting Christian Reflections

  New book release; inspiring Christian thoughts . A motivational, discounted, Christian book and devotional fit for women, teens, men & seniors. Uplifting Christian Reflections , available in both the Kindle e-book and paperback formats, encourages believers to constantly evaluate how they live their lives in Christ Jesus. The Christian life is not a destination; it is, in reality, a devotion that should last a lifetime. One experiences humps and dips, the good and the bad, as they travel. God expects the Christian never to waver in the face of such environmental challenges. The author was sort of thinking aloud when he wrote this great book. He was reflecting on the practical lessons that he had learned since he first set out on the Christian journey. The author also drew lessons from personal experiences, especially to do with some views that he had adopted as a young Christian believer and later revised upon guidance, encouragement, and further reflection. Indeed, the Christian

Inspirational Short Sermons

  The Christian life was never meant to be a stagnant life ; it was meant to be a hyperactive life that always seeks the next and higher level in Christ Jesus. To this end, the Bible exhorts Christians to mature in knowledge and also in how they carry themselves as they walk the earth. The Bible is truly a great teacher on issues pertaining to personal growth and transformation. In this book, the author has created a convenient and easy-to-use reference to the Holy Bible, with over seventy short, uplifting and insightful teachings, each of which can be read in just 5 to 10 minutes. The teachings, which are designed to help you to become much more than a name-plate Christian, will leave you with challenging thoughts and questions to consider as you go about your business. The teachings will also stimulate self-introspection and encourage you to take your faith to a higher level, becoming more and more like the Lord not only in word but also in deed - thus living the Christian life to th

Living the Christian Life

  Christianity is a life – a great life indeed. It is the life of God in the mortal man - the life of the indwelling Spirit. Because it is a life, Christianity should be lived out. It should produce tangible and visible fruits consistent with it, to the end that Christ may be exalted and the world may receive inspiration. If you are devoted to Christ, then you cannot afford to live a passive, indifferent, barren, and absent-minded kind of life! Your salvation should be evident in everything you do and everything you are - how you make your decisions, how you react and pro-act, how you approach social issues - how you relate to people generally. Jesus Christ is the Christian’s role model - the all-time reference on life – based on how He lived when He walked the earth. So you need to always ask yourself the following questions: • What would Jesus have done under similar circumstances? • How would Jesus have done it? • What should my top priorities in this life be? The objective of this

The Book of Romans - A New Testament Bible Commentary

  “To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be his holy people: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 1:7 (NIV) Paul’s letter to the Romans lays out the concrete foundation of Christianity, without which no Christian may be able to withstand the machinations of the devil. Paul’s letter answers the basic Christian questions like: What is salvation? What does it mean to be saved? How can I be saved? This is the kind of knowledge that every Christian needs to grasp in order not to be misled by perverted teachings. This book is not your usual kind of bible commentary. Instead, it is a serious attempt to convey Paul’s teachings in as simple a way as possible, to the end that many might find the book easy to read and understand. The book is therefore suitable even for preteens. All bible verses quoted in the book were taken from the New International Version. You may also be interested in the following Christian short reads by the same au

Shades of Hypocrisy - Christian Teaching

“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship [Him] in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23-24). I believe many worshipers are in the category of true worshipers. I also believe that many are outside this group. Some of those who are outside the group of true worshipers sincerely long to change for the better – but the rest, for some reason, seek to remain the same. In John 4:23-24, Jesus talked about true worshipers. Who are they, the true worshipers? Jesus went on to say, “…they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.”  Now that’s remarkable because it means that there are certain worshipers that the Father is not seeking at all – the worshipers that the Father does not seek. With regards to these, God expects nothing but transformation. We need to be in the right group. We need to get right with God, fast. Are you the kin

The Little Book on Worry - A Christian Perspective

  Do you sometimes wish you did not worry as much as you currently do? Many people indeed struggle with worry; some to the extent of being destroyed by it physically, mentally, and socially. Some people just can’t function because of worry. But what does the Word of God say about worry? Consider this -  “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”   (Matthew 6:27, NIV).  The Lord Jesus Christ asked a very pertinent question. "Is worry productive?" Jesus asked, in other words. Can one improve the circumstances of their life by worrying? The good news is that you can be free of worry - but this is a decision you have to take. This, however, is a decision that many people struggle to take – some don’t even consider taking such a decision because they consider worrying to be part and parcel of life. But there indeed is an alternative to worrying. This book can turn the course of your life around within an hour if you read it with the motive of getting help. Here ar

Why My Life Matters

  In life, love is the principal thing. After all, is said and done, one gets to a place where they begin to understand that without love, their life gets out of shape or form - whether it be the love they give or the love they receive. But then it's better to give than to receive! Nobody lives just for themselves. My life matters because I love and am loved. Your life matters because you too love and are loved. After all life is completely about relationships! Then the matter gets curious. "What is love? What does it look like? What does it feel like? Do people understand love the same way?" By the time you finish reading this booklet, you will be able to tell if what you are giving and what you are receiving is love or true love. You will be challenged. You will also be greatly inspired. You might even get angry at yourself for a while as the truth about how you have lived your life unravels before you. From the author of the following inspiring short reads: Living the

Your Success - A Christian Viewpoint

  This book may not appeal to non-believers. I actually believe that non-believers would strongly disagree with some of the contents of this book. It would be perfectly appropriate for them to act that way because they are not of the same faith as the author. The main argument of this book is that genuine success begins with surrendering to the One who created everything, including the one who seeks to be successful. Again, many would violently disagree with this – that’s the beauty of freedom and choice. Phanuel further argues that one should not seek just to be successful, but to be a Total Quality Individual. The point here is that one should seek a successful life, instead of seeking to be successful in just some aspects of life. Indeed a person’s life conduct derives from their preferred life context. This is why something could appeal to one, but not to another. This is also why one might avoid the very pursuits that other people could be totally excited about. God is Phanuel’s p
