    The Lord’s Scales

    “Honest weights and scales are the Lord’s…” Prov. 16:11a It is a wrap!

  • Hearts and Treasures

    Hearts and Treasures

    For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matt. 6:21) The Bible verse above is such a simple but deep and beautiful statement that captures the essence of human priorities.

  • We Shall See Him As He Is

    We Shall See Him As He Is

    This is one of the greatest promises in the Bible, tied to the appearance of Christ at the end of this age. To see Christ as He is (not as we think or imagine him to be) implies that we will be completely free from the limitations of our human minds, which colour our perception […]

The #EndSARS protests which started as a spontaneous reaction to police brutality became a wildfire that spread across several cities of the nation.
