Ephesians 5:8-10 (NET) for you were at one time darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light – for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth – trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

When Gerald became a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, pleasing God became his priority in life. This did not happen instantly, but as he continued in the words of Christ, he arrived at the knowledge of the truth— he understood the purpose of life and how pleasing God and becoming like Christ are the major goal of this present life. As a result, he became free of all spiritual limitations and became more successful in his earthly trade because he was now a reliable and dependable businessman. He also became a good husband and father to his children because he was no longer living a self-centered life. Gerald's life now experienced a level of peace, joy, and contentment that he didn't know was attainable before he became a disciple.

One of the most important attributes of true believers is that they desire to learn what is pleasing to God and do it. Life is about pleasing God. A man who lives to please himself will not find lasting pleasure; such a man has been condemned to vanity. But a man who lives to please God will find the fullness of joy, true peace, and eternal pleasures. Man was not created in the image of man but in the image of God. Any man that lives for himself will find vanity, death, and destruction at the end, but any man who lives to please God will find life, peace, and joy everlasting.

Go into today remembering that you were created in the image of God. Your life is meant to be Godward, not selfward. Man can only find purpose and completeness in God.

Lord Jesus, please help me live a life of purpose — pleasing you in all respects.
— Abraham Damilola Arigi

God will restore

Luke 22:31-32 (KJV) And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Desmond backslide so terribly that he became a prayer point for many of his brethren. He went back to the bad habits of his old life and was now living like an unbeliever. It wasn't that he didn't still love God but he found that he was now overpowered by the flesh, and it was as if he was in a pit that he couldn't come out of.

Because of the prayers and love of the brethren around him, he was restored. After the Lord restored him, he became a mighty tool in the hand of the Lord to restore many others.

The major trick the devil uses to cause people to fall and remain on the ground is his lies that bring condemnation. If the devil can distract and hinder a believer from the ministry of prayer and the word for a long time, that believer will become spiritually weak and might not be able to withstand the temptations of the devil. He may be able to withstand normal temptations sponsored by the flesh, but when demons are empowering the temptations (as they often do), he may not stand a chance because he is spiritually malnourished and weak. If the believer falls into a temptation powered by demons, they would ensure that his fall comes with a level of condemnation that is unusual. They will make the believer feel worthless and so dirty that he may not even have the courage to pray. This means more weakness and more falls.

Go into today remembering that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. If you fall, repent, rise up and move on. Don’t let the devil keep you on the ground with his lies that bring condemnation. Open up to believers who can help pull you back up if an issue becomes too stubborn for you to handle.

Prayer: heavenly father, do not let me fall into temptation, and deliver me from [doing] evil. In Jesus' name. Amen.
— Abraham Damilola Arigi

Living as Sons of Light

Ephesians 5:8-10 (NET) for you were at one time darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light – for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth – trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
When Gerald was a child, he used to be very naughty. But when his parents were expecting important visitors and they wanted all their children to be very well behaved especially him, his mother would call him aside and promise to give him some money for being good when the visitors are around. This always worked like a charm. Because of the financial incentive, even as a little boy, Gerald knew how to be good.

As an adult, whenever he wanted something from someone or to impress them, he knew how to act and sound good and kind, but being good and kind was not truly his nature even though he knew the expectations of that nature.

So when after accepting the Lord Jesus, he was taught by his discipler that as a child of light, one of the fruits of his life should be goodness, he knew exactly what it meant. He understood that for him now, being good and kind was not to be a guest attitude when he wanted to impress someone or get something out of them, it was now to be his way of life because he had received the divine nature that makes bad people good.

As Gerald started walking every day with this consciousness of being good, he realized that even though many times, being good was not convenient for the flesh, it was always refreshing to the spirit, and the more he acted in the divine nature of goodness and kindness, the more pleased the Holy Spirit within him was, and this translated to more inner joy and strength in his spirit.

After receiving the new life and the indwelling Holy Spirit, if we walk in our old sinful bad nature, the Holy Spirit [within us] is not pleased but grieved, and this would affect our inner joy and deplete our inner strength. But the more we consciously walk in the divine nature of goodness, righteousness, and truth, the Holy Spirit within us is pleased and He rejoices. This joy of the Lord within us will fill our hearts with joy and strengthen us.

Go into today remembering that the joy of the Lord is your strength. Let the words you say and the things you do be pleasing to the Lord. This is the source of your inner joy and peace.

Prayer Confession: As a child of God, I walk in the divine nature. I am pleasing the Lord in all things, and fruitful in every good work.

Complete in Him

Colossians 2:8 (NET) Be careful not to allow anyone to captivate you through an empty, deceitful philosophy that is according to human traditions and the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

Many of the Gentile Christians in Colossi were greatly harassed by some Jewish teachers who insisted that they needed to also be converted to Judaism in order for their salvation to be complete. Some of the believers in the Gentile territory were deceived by these doctrines and some of them started observing Jewish festivals and feasts, started circumcising their children, and even worshiping according to Jewish tradition.

Today, we may see traces of this same error in the body of Christ; it seems to be creeping in gradually. There are some Christians today that actually believe that their prayers have more merit when prayed at the Wailing Wall in Israel. Some have even gone as far as beginning to practice some of the Jewish feasts because they have been told that there is some power in doing such things. I have heard that some Christians have started celebrating the Passover, and some even partaking in the animal sacrifice which is a part of that festival.

Please remember that as a believer in Christ Jesus, the covenant you have with God is superior to the covenant a Jew who is not saved has with God. We have a better covenant with better promises (Heb 7:22, 8:6). You do not have to become a Jew in any way for you to walk in the fullness of the blessing (Galatians 3:13). That doctrine (which says you have to become a jew to partake in Abraham's blessing) is a lie from the pit of hell and it brings believers under the dominion of elemental spirits.

Go into today thanking God because He has made you complete in Christ Jesus (Col 2:10). You do not need any Jewish tradition to be made complete.

Fulfilling God's expectations 2

 Romans 8:29 (KJV)  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.


Because Benson wanted to be a responsible Christian, he sought to understand God's expectations of him and fulfill them. 

He was a little confused because he didn't know how to discern God's specific expectations of him. He went to his discipler to share his concerns. That was when through scripture, he discovered the expectation that God had for him as a believer. As he fulfilled that one, he received the ability to discern specific instructions for specific seasons of his life. 


Scripture reveals that God's goal in calling us is that we become like Christ [in character and nature]. We will even look like him physically during the resurrection (see Philippians 3:21, 1 John 3:2). It is expedient that right now we become like Him spiritually through the new birth, spiritual growth, and sanctification. Jesus says "learn of me, for I am humble and gentle in heart". In becoming like Christ, learning is an important part of the process, and learning requires a time component. This precious time you have on earth gives you the opportunity to become like Christ in character and nature. Don't waste it. 


We were born sinful. The sinful man is proud and self-centered, he lies and is envious, and a man with such a nature cannot inherit the kingdom of God. You must become like Christ if you would inherit [thrones in] His eternal kingdom. It is your destiny to inherit God's kingdom. 


Go into today remembering that God's ultimate expectation of you is that you become like Christ. As this change of nature happens to your inner man, you will grow in fellowship with God such that you will know and understand His specific expectations for you in every season of your life.

Philippians 3:13-14 (KJV) Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

When I was in secondary school, there were those who believed they knew mathematics so much that there was nothing more to learn. They felt quite arrogant because they believed there was no mathematical problem they couldn't solve. But their arrogance was because of their limited exposure to real mathematics in secondary school. But as many of them went to the university and started doing real mathematics, they became humble and realized that the higher they went in studying mathematics, the narrower their scope in mathematics became because that field of study is so wide at the advanced level that, for example, it is impossible to do a Ph.D. in all aspects at the same time.

As soon as a believer begins to think he has arrived and does not need to learn and grow again, that believer can be sure he will soon be called home or backside terribly. If anyone thinks he knows enough, it is a sign that he doesn't know as much as he needs to know (1 Corinthians 8:2).

If apostle Paul were comparing himself with other Christians around him, he might have been feeling accomplished, but he understood that there was a prize for the high calling in God, and attaining it was his goal.

Do you know that God has expectations of you in this season of your life? Let your goal be that you meet these expectations.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me know your expectations of me in this season and help me fulfill them. Amen.
— Abraham Damilola Arigi

Impending Judgment

Acts 24:25 (NET)While Paul was discussing righteousness, self-control, and the coming judgment, Felix became frightened and said, “Go away for now, and when I have an opportunity, I will send for you.”

When Lamar accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior, he didn’t accept Christ because someone told him that that was a ticket to a better life (that gospel could never appeal to Lamar because he was born into great wealth), he believed in Christ because he now realized that Christ was the only one who could shield him from the judgment that was sure to come. He had several disturbing dreams before a preacher brought the gospel to him, and in those dreams, he saw himself descending into hell fire. He knew he was doomed but didn’t know the way out until the gospel came to him.

Today, there is a conscious effort by some to remove the warning about the judgment of God from the preaching of the gospel. Any gospel message that does not properly explain the ramification of Jesus' salvation from impending judgment is a weak gospel. One main point of the gospel message is that receiving Jesus is the only way to escape the impending damnation (see John 3:18).

From today’s Bible verse, we can clearly see that one element of the gospel message preached by the apostles was "The Judgment of God". When in the days of the apostles, people they preached to asked ‘what shall we do [to be saved]?’(see Acts 2:37, 16:30) they asked this question because they understood that there is impending judgment and doom, and they wanted to be saved from it.

Go into today remembering that there is coming judgment on all humankind. The only way to escape it is through the salvation of Christ Jesus.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to make you more effective in helping people escape eternal damnation by preaching the gospel to them.

The Fruit of the Spirit

Galatians 5:22-24 (NET) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

Even though Evans had accepted the Lord Jesus and was being discipled in the Church, because he was truthful to himself, he knew that his life was not producing the fruit of the spirit. This bothered him greatly because he understood that the presence of the fruit of the spirit was a demonstration of spiritual growth and maturity. It took him some time of soul searching with God's word for him to find out that he was not manifesting the fruit of the spirit because he had not crucified the flesh and its passions. For example, he loved movies so much that he would regularly miss his personal prayer time because of them. His excessive love for movies was a passion of the flesh that he needed to tame.

A believer who has not crucified the flesh and its passions cannot bring forth the fruit of the spirit. What God is doing in us believers is that He is conforming us to the image and the nature of Christ (see Romans 8:29). We were all born into this world with the Adamic nature which is sinful, but we must deny that nature and walk in the divine nature we have received through the Holy Spirit. Those who continue to walk in the Adamic sinful nature cannot please God, nor will they be able to inherit their thrones in God's kingdom.

Go into today remembering that after believing in the Lord Jesus, denying the flesh (and its passions) is necessary if your life will bring forth the fruit of the Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit in any life is proof that that person has received the nature of Christ. When God evaluates us for promotion, he looks out for fruits.

Ephesians 5:5 (NET)  For you can be confident of this one thing: that no person who is immoral, impure, or greedy (such a person is an idolater) has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Dr. Dimitri owned and controlled the most important company in his country. This company was the highest employer of labor in the small island state Dr. Dimitri was so proud to be from. He was getting old and wanted to retire. He wanted to hand over the company to someone with his nature and wisdom. If the company ended up in the wrong hands, too many families would be distressed because there would be staff layoffs.

Because Dimitri understood that running that company properly was a trust from God, he was more concerned about handing over the company to a competent hand than to his biological child. Thankfully, his second son was as talented as they came. If his son did not demonstrate competence, Dimitri would not have handed over the company to him.

The biggest problem of the natural (sinful) man is that we do not have the nature of God and thus cannot inherit his kingdom that was prepared for us from the foundation of the world. If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17). The old nature of sin must be replaced with the new nature of Christ. You must die to your old life and habits and let the life of Christ spring out through you. This is the only way you would have the nature that can inherit God’s kingdom. 

Go into today remembering that the old sinful nature of adam(flesh) cannot inherit the kingdom of God. it is only those who have the nature and Character of Christ that will inherit his kingdom. Do not just be satisfied with missing hell, your destiny is to rule and reign in God’s eternal kingdom.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me to walk worthy of my calling in you. Amen.

Forgiveness of sins

1 John 1:8-9 (NET) If we say we do not bear the guilt of sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous, forgiving us our sins and cleansing us from all unrighteousness.

Against his father's instruction, Segun took his father's special car and drove it to school when his father was out of town. Unfortunately, Segun had an auto crash and broke the front light of his father's Bugatti Divo. He tried to get it fixed with his savings but his savings were not sufficient. He had to take the car back home in shame, awaiting his father's rebuke.

When his father returned and saw the car, he was displeased but not surprised. He knew of all the times Segun had been sneaking the car out without his consent because his car had an app on his phone that informed him of the car's every move.

"Segun! you are grounded. No more video games, you're only allowed to go to school and back, no more allowances, no smartphone, no visits to friends or the mall, etc.

What pained Segun the most about him being grounded was that his dad no longer had conversations with him, and they no longer went to play golf together. Segun was so unhappy that his friends knew something was wrong.

After one month of being grounded, Segun couldn't take it anymore. He went to his dad and apologized for what he had done. This time he meant it, and he now realized that what his father really wanted him to repent of and stop doing was deceit and disobedience. "You could have been killed by that truck. You don't have the required skills to drive that car", his father said.

Segun's dad was more than happy to forgive him. He was praying Segun would repent and apologize so their relationship would be restored. Even though Segun's dad wanted a restored relationship and friendship with his son, that could not happen until Segun acknowledged what he had done and repented.

As a member of God's Holy family, there are things you may be doing that are the reason you are not enjoying communion and friendship with God and the attendant benefits. The light of God's word is what reveals these things to us, and as we acknowledge them and repent of them, we are forgiven and cleansed from all unrighteousness. Our communion with God is restored and we are able to partake of the benefits of being close to God.

Go into today remembering that without repentance there is no remission of sin or forgiveness of sins. Sin is the nature that makes it impossible for us to fellowship with God. Sins are the spots and wrinkles that we may still have, even though we have received the divine nature.
