Ask any Christian: “Do you love God?” The obvious answer will be: “Yes!” But what does it REALLY mean to ‘love’ God? Is it by attending church regularly? Giving offerings? Or going to missions? James 1:12 will answer that for us today.

By Steve Sevy
When we respond quickly and don’t hear others, it is a “self” problem. We are selfish and lack self-control. The Spirit of God helps us with self-control. Our self wants center stage in our lives. When we are selfish and want to be the center it is often linked to low self-esteem..Read more

Sisters, meet Lala, is a former SSU with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration .
Our discussion of the day is on being led by the Holy Spirit. The Lord Jesus said that apart from Him we can do nothing; yet, many of us still try to live holy lives by our own efforts. No wonder we get discouraged, overwhelmed, and defeated along the way. Today, we’ll hear a testimony on being a child of God and walking by the Holy Spirit. Continue reading “SSU of the Month: Lala”

It was New Year’s Eve 2016, I woke up with a big smile on my face that morning. I was happy and thankful that the Lord had kept me alive through all these months. I told myself that I would not let anything sadden or stress me out because it was New Year’s Eve. Throughout the day, there were little annoying things that happened or that people did, and I kept on reminding myself: “Girl, it’s the last day of the year, you can’t let this affect you, smile and enjoy yourself.” Eventually, I spent my New Year’s Eve in beauty and peace as I chose not to be disturbed by my surrounding. This got me to think about my spiritual life; on any given day of the year, I’m willing to let my spirit be troubled by my environment, however, when it came to New Year’s Eve, it was a golden moment not to be ruined. The psalmist said the following: “This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” Psalm 118:24. This means that those in Christ shouldn’t rejoice circumstantially (because even the world can do that) but instead have joy dependent on God who makes each day of the year. I was challenged! It must be a conscious decision that I need to take every day when I wake up to rejoice, rejoice, and rejoice in the Lord. Not that I have to laugh out loud daily or crack jokes around, but joy is that serene state of mind, spirit, and soul, finding peace and strength in the Bible. It may seem unattainable because this means 365 days of joy, that’s the more reason I need the Holy Spirit! I’m tired of the sadness, gloominess, anger, and etc, I just want to live differently for the glory of God and inspire/encourage someone out there. Lord, please help me!!!
