Husbands, Love Your Wives, Just As Christ Loved The Church And Gave Himself Up For Her

Husbands, Love Your Wives, Just As Christ Loved The Church And Gave Himself Up For Her

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

Ephesians_5-25: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it

A woman’s greatest need is for security. Her most secure environment is one in which she is married to a sacrificial, sensitive man.
The Bible describes that kind of husband in Ephesians 5:25. Paul writes, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”
Men, Jesus gave His life for you, and you are to follow His example in your marriage. In other words, love her more than you love yourself. Sacrifice for her.
What does a sacrificial husband look like?
• He is dedicated to serving his wife.
• He puts her needs above his own.
• He makes sure she gets whatever she needs.
• He studies his wife to understand her better.
• He communicates with her and shares what’s on his heart.
• He doesn’t need to be nagged. When she asks for something, he does it.
Paul says a husband’s love for his wife is to be the same kind of love that Jesus had for the church. Jesus sacrificed Himself as the perfect Lamb of God.
To meet your wife’s need for security, guys, you have to show that same sacrificial spirit—which means you may have to give something up.

You might have to sacrifice:
• An interest or hobby, even if it’s something you’re passionate about.
• A certain group of friends who are destructive toward your marriage.
• An event or opportunity that takes you away from home or your family.
• A promotion that means longer hours or more travel.
• A job that is keeping you from being the husband and father she needs you to be.
Jesus sacrificed for us, and a husband is called to sacrifice for his wife. Meeting her need for security means using both your words and actions to tell her, “Nothing is as important to me as you are, and I will give up anything to make sure your needs are met.”

A woman will feel insecure when the man she has married is selfish and detached, when she knows she is low on his priority list. She will feel the most secure when she knows her husband is always thinking about her—and willing to sacrifice anything for her.
Guys, does your wife know that about you?

Thank You Jesus!

Tips For Stress Free Happy Christmas Holidays

Tips For Stress Free Happy Christmas Holidays

During this holiday season, I hope that you started working smart by getting your gifts and shopping done early. Safety tips for you this Christmas holiday season:

1. Be proactive. If you haven’t gotten your shopping done, go NOW or later on tonight. Due to cold weather, most people try to be in by 9 or 10pm.

2. Make a list before you go. That way you don’t forget anything and have to drive back in crazy traffic.

3. Stock up on everything that you need so you can spend more time with family vs running around going crazy.

4. Start cooking early. People wait till the day of to start cooking. Prepare turkey and food Sunday or even Monday to be ahead of the game.

5. Manage your MONEY very well.  Make a budget for what you want to spend and don’t go over it. People go broke trying to please everyone else. You must be smart and SAVE. Always have a little left over for emergencies.

6. Take a time out for YOU. Listen to some Christian music. Relax with a glass of non alcoholic fruit wine and take a much-needed break before family comes over for dinner. That way you can enjoy their time and have energy as well.

7. Take a body stretch to relax your muscles. We tend to be so busy before and after Christmas that our bodies become weak, tired and stretches helps to keep our muscles on tract.

8. Make your phone calls early daytime on Christmas day. The early bird catches the worm. The more time you spend talking, the less time you have to spend with your family. Or just send a text those you don’t want to talk to.

9 If you want to go out with family or friends, plan it and make sure you organize whether for the movies, to a dinner or a party. BE PREPARED!

10. HAVE FUN, SMILE AND  TELL SOMEONE YOU LOVE THEM! AND REMEMBER TO HAVE YOUR QUIET TIME WITH OUR HEAVENLY FATHER!

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

What A Girl Should Know

Hillary Clinton posing with Girl Scouts

WHAT A GIRL SHOULD KNOW.

 

 

 

 

Once a girl reaches the age of puberty, these are the following things her parents should let her know.

 

 

 

 

 

1.      A girl should have a thorough knowledge of her body. She should know what menstruation is all about, how to count the dates, when it is safe and when alarm will blow. She should know the cause of pregnancy and how to give birth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.      A girl should be told about all the risks involved in sex. From pregnancy to venereal disease (STD) and emotional trauma. She should know that there is no sex without the opposite sex (A Male). So she should be told about the nature of men.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.      Every girl should know about precautions, starting from the knowledge of her gestation period to other forms of contraceptives. She should be told that the best contraceptive is to Abstain from SEX till she gets married.

 

 

 

 

 

 

4.      A girl should know what pride and dignity means. And should know that a lot of her dignity is related to her sexual conduct. Remember your body is yours and it is the temple of the HOLY SPIRIT! Don’t be forced into doing what you don’t want to do  and please, do it only when it is safe;   in Marriage!

 

 

 

 

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Daddy, I need to hear your voice

Daddy, I Need to Hear Your Voice

by Simon T. Bailey

Women have two problems with men. (I can almost hear a few ladies saying, “only
two?” with a smirk.) The two key issues are that, as men, we don’t talk and rarely
listen. When we do talk it is all about us, and when we listen we have selective
hearing. Well, this couldn’t be farther from the truth in this next instance.
My father recently had to have surgery and I decided to fly up to Buffalo, New York
to be with him. I won’t bore you with the details, but he made it through with flying
colours. Thank goodness. On the day prior to his discharge, we were just sitting
in the hospital room when all of a sudden my father started talking to me.
It was way deeper than sports, weather, politics, or the economy. Someone or something
turned on a faucet inside of him and for the next three hours we had one of the
most meaningful dialogues I have ever experienced in my life. My Daddy did more
than communicate, he connected with me. He looked me in the eyes and gave me an
oral history of our family for the last 100 years.

Now, my Dad is a man’s man. I have never seen him break down, but he broke down
twice while talking to me about leaving Jamaica to come to America at 19 years of
age as a migrant worker picking oranges in Florida. Then he went to Perry, NY along
with another migrant worker to pick up apples. You would think that I would know
this history, but I didn’t. I’ve been working since I was 12 years old and really
didn’t know my family.

Some might say, perhaps you need to go and see a shrink. It’s all good. I am okay.
This is just one of those moments that caught this “A-type control freak” personality
of mine by surprise.

What is so amazing about this is that for the last twenty-five years, since leaving
Buffalo, NY to carve out my own path, I have talked to my parents just about every
Sunday evening. Our conversations are short, sweet and unemotional. I know for
some that this might be TMI (Too Much Information), but I have been waiting for
the last twenty-five years for my father to peel back the layers of his masculinity
and be emotionally available. Is it a sign of weakness? Hardly. I believe it’s a
sign of strength.

Those three hours of talking, listening, and sharing with my Pops left me speechless.
I know you find that hard to believe. Me, speechless? I had to get up and walk
around the hospital to clear my mind. In those three hours, he filled in so many
blanks. He told me that when I was 7 years old I would say that I would write a
book. He told me what he saw in me. He closed the loop in sharing what was in our
family DNA. He told me that my Grandfather, his father, was a brilliant man with
a sharp mind. I never met my Grandfather; I wish I could have. A part of me has
always sensed that there was a missing piece to my life’s puzzle. My Dad’s talking
to me helped me understand why I have a such free, cavalier, and often independent
spirit. It’s because of him.

He filled in the blanks and in an instant built a bridge from the past to the present.
The most touching moment was on the ride home from the hospital as I sat in the
back seat with my Dad. I was reminiscing with arrows of emotions shooting through
me wondering, “did my Daddy ever hold my hand when I was growing up?” I am sure
he did. Nevertheless this 40+ year-old man reached over and grabbed my Daddy’s hand.
I don’t know why I did but I could hear Luther Vandross singing in the symphony
hall of my soul – Dance with my father.

For fifteen minutes during the ride home, I held my 70 year-old father’s hand and
I got it. It clicked. As a father of two incredible children, I realized the heavy
sense of responsibility I have to help them uncover their purpose and identity.

When we arrived home, I made sure that my Pops was okay. He turned to me and said,
“Son, I am so glad that you came.” In that moment, my Dad hugged me with his words.
WOW! I didn’t know that I needed to know that my visit really mattered to him.
He then did what was most profound … my Daddy put his hand on my shoulder and
closed his eyes and started talking to God. It was like he was a friend of God.
He said, “God, thank you for Simon. Please watch over him and his family. Keep
him in all of his ways.” My Daddy talked to God about me. As a result, I know everything
is going to be just fine.

I stood frozen and leaned over this 5’7”, 140 lb. giant of man and kissed him on
his forehead. I said to myself, “That’s my Daddy. He doesn’t belong to anyone else.
That’s my Daddy. That’s my friend.” I don’t know how much time my Dad has here
on earth. But one thing is for sure, if he should depart Earth, I know beyond a
shadow of doubt that he loves me. That’s all I’ve ever wanted to know, that I mattered
to him.

Please my friend, do not go to your grave without talking to those who matter the most to you.

Be real. Be authentic. Put your truth on the table about how you are really doing.
I can promise you that when you do your life will make a significant shift. Thank
you for letting me bend your ear.

 

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

Developing bolder and brighter kids

Developing  Bolder and Brighter Kids
by Pastor Joy Amenkhienan

Learn how to take care of your kids from  the stage of growing up (between the ages of 3-7) to the stage of discernment.

The  Growing Up Stage

At this stage, parents should ensure that  their kids attend church services regularly. They should not leave them at home  while they are in church.

It’s also at this stage that parents ought  to start activating their plans for their kids. That’s when they should  compliment their children on whatever they do. This would give them the  boldness to do better next time. They should not be hushed up whenever they try  to say something and emphasis should not be placed on the wrong things they do  but on the good. Parents must also talk their children up. For example, they  don’t need to have passed an examination before you let them know they’re  intelligent. Parents must use faith-filled words in communicating to their  kids.

Most importantly, kids should be properly  dressed at all times. Good dressing gives them self confidence. They should be  neatly and decently dressed at all times. They should wear the best.

The next stage is between ages 8 and 14.

The  Stage Of Discernment

This is a very critical time for the  children. Parents should pay close attention to their kids because whatever  they learn at this age will not be easily forgotten. Here they begin to make  choices about what appeals to them. Here, constant communication between parents  and kids is very important in avoiding wrong influences. The parents should  guard against wrong habits in their kids.

Parents must know their children’s friends.  They have to ensure that their kids have children of like minds and from  Christian homes around them. Playtime should not just be about playing; parents  should ensure that their kids get the right kind of information during leisure.  This includes the right language, the right games, the right movies, the right  books etc.

Kids can write confessions  and place them on their walls or on their bed sides. They can also have  “talking” sessions and engage in Bible games.
