Luke 2:7 (KJV)
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

A story in an article described a man who was on a journey with his pregnant wife on a plane when suddenly her water broke. Airlines these days have planes so tight one can barely move. The sudden stress caused a commotion, but thankfully, a medical nurse on that same flight along with some cabin crew members made space near the toilet compartment. There the man's wife successfully was delivered a baby. Their joy knew no bounds.

We talk about how fast-paced life can be, and during Christmas and New Year this gets amplified. Many hurry to shop, travel, make sales, etc. Yet many leave no room for Jesus. Unfortunately, many believers get caught up in the frenzied celebrations yet really have no room for Him who they claim to celebrate.

During this season, we are reminded that He not only deserves a tiny manger-like room in our lives but in truth should hold the keys to the master bedroom of our lives. Revelations 3:20 and John 14:23 tells us that if we love Him and hear Him, there is no way He should remain standing outside our lives.

As you celebrate this season, make sure you have surrendered the temporary room of your life to Him because a day will come when Christ the Landlord of our lives will ask for the keys to judge how you have lived in His house.

Acts 2:4 (KJV)
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

One reason Kayode was initially not interested in speaking in tongues was because he knew many people who spoke in tongues but were not true Christians. On campus, he once had a roommate who was very selfish and mean. This same roommate would be the first to speak in tongues if they had to pray together in the room. Kayode also knew that this roommate was a chronic womanizer, and a very deceitful fellow.

We see in today’s Bible verse that it is after the Holy Spirit filled the believers that they began to speak in tongues.

Of those who are known to speak in tongues, but are not known [to be followers of Christ] by their fruits, there are two categories. There are those who were indeed born again and received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, but refused to grow and remained spiritual babes who are now either spiritually dead or deeply asleep spiritually (see Rev 3:2, Rom 8:13). Then there are those who were never born again, but merely received a spiritual gift through impartation because of their proximity to those who have this gift. Both categories of people should not expect to be raptured because that day will come as a thief in the night for those who are asleep (see 1 Thes 5:1-7).

Those who are spiritually dead or not awake, but pray in tongues will pray fruitlessly. Just like those who perform miracles in the name of Jesus but are not known by Him (see Matt 7:23) because they do not love God. It is those who love God that are known by God (see 1 Cor 8:3). If a person loves God, it is shown in the way he relates with God’s children (see 1 John 4:20).

God’s gifts are irrevocable (Rom 11:29). God does not withdraw His spiritual gifts because a person is spiritually asleep (by remaining a spiritual babe), or even spiritually dead (see Rev 3:2, Rom 8:13). What happens is that the gift will not lead to any form of Kingdom fruitfulness (which is the purpose gifts are given). And fruitfulness is the purpose for which we are ordained (see John 15:16).

1 Corinthians 14:2 (NKJV)
For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.

The only Spiritual gift that is peculiar to the New Testament church is the gift of tongues. Every other spiritual gift had been already present in the Old Covenant. Whereas all other gifts come as a result of the Holy Spirit upon a person, the gift of tongues comes as a result of the Holy Spirit upon and within a person. It came only after the Holy Spirit came to indwell people (see John 14:17, Acts 2:4).

When a believer prays in tongues, he is praying in partnership with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit prays for him with groans that cannot be uttered (Rom 8:26).

You see, in the new covenant, prayer is greatly emphasized (see Luke 18:1, Col 4:2, 1 Thes 5:17, Rom 12:12, Eph 6:18, etc.). It is emphasized much more than in the old covenant because it is the way grace is multiplied in the life of the believer. It is the way we fellowship with our Father and receive strength. It is the way we wrestle against our enemies and overcome. Because the new covenant is one of reality and not of shadows, there are many things of eternal ramifications that we will have to pray about, and our understanding is too limited to pray these prayers appropriately. That is why the Lord gave the church the gift of tongues. And it is primarily to help us pray in the spirit. It affords the Holy Spirit the ability to pray for us, yet we are the ones praying.

There are many things God wants to do for us. But He needs our input through our prayers. And many times we may not know to pray these prayers. But this problem is solved when we pray in tongues. He prays those prayers for us, yet it cannot be said in the courts of heaven that we weren’t the ones who prayed those prayers. Praying in tongues affords Him the occasion to help us in ways we did not even know we needed help.

1 Cor 14:14 (KJV)
For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.

After Kayode was baptized in the Holy Spirit, he found it a struggle to pray in tongues because he did not understand it. He was made to believe that whenever a person prays in tongues, they are to interpret it or they are not to pray in tongues but remain silent. He did not know that he wrongly understood 1 Cor 14:28. He also wasn’t sure that what he prayed was real tongues since it didn’t sound like any known language that anyone could understand.

Many believers have been spiritually impoverished because they do not understand praying in tongues. It is a spiritual gift that helps us pray more accurately and more effectively. When we pray in tongues, we are praying in partnership with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit prays for us through our vocal chords. There are so many prayers we NEED to pray, but we do not know how to pray them because our human understanding is greatly limited. When we pray in tongues, the Holy Spirit prays for us, with us (see Rom 8:26).

When you pray in an unknown tongue, it means it is unknown to men. But it is possible to pray in a known tongue that is known to other people. This manifestation of this gift is usually given as a sign. But most times, when you are praying to God, the tongue you pray with is unknown to men.

When you are praying in tongues to God, you do not need the prayer to be interpreted because God understands all tongues. It is only when you are delivering a message to God’s people in tongues that it is necessary for the message to be interpreted.

Go into today knowing that Praying in tongues is different from giving a message in tongues. Praying in tongues is the surest way to pray in the Spirit. All believers NEED to pray in the spirit (see Jude 1:20, Eph 6:18, 1 Cor 14:15).

LOVE IS THE PERFECT BOND

Colossians 3:14 (NET)
And to all these virtues add love, which is the perfect bond.

For the first time in his life, Kayode was truly happy because he felt loved and accepted. In the church, he was loved by people he did not know before. Even though he came from a broken home, he was now a member of an unbreakable family.

One thing Christians are to be known for the most is their love for one another. Jesus says this in John 13:35 (ISV): “This is how everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

There is nothing that binds people together like true Christian love. It is powerful. The devil is powerless against it.

Many times, we are generally afraid to love people because love makes us vulnerable. But when we love people for Christ’s sake, it makes us powerful.

The easiest way to reap love is to sow love. If your marriage is suffering under forces that seek to break it, begin to sow love like never before. Begin to take out extra time to pray for your spouse. Give your time and resources like never before. Begin to sow love in larger proportions and wait for the bountiful harvest. Love is indeed the perfect bond. It will keep you together.

Go into today remembering that the only thing we are to owe people is love (Rom 13:8). Because you are now born again, you have the power to love people. This is the most fruitful manifestation of the divine nature.

Colossians 3:14 (NET)
And to all these virtues add love, which is the perfect bond.


When Kayode first believed, he didn’t know how to love people. The only person he had ever loved was himself. His parents did not love him, and no one ever showed him love before he met his roommate who preached to him and led him to Christ.

Because he was attending a living Christian fellowship, one of the first things he was taught as a new believer was to love. He was told that he now had the capacity and the ability to love God and love people...

You may be asking if it is possible to teach a person to love. Yes. The easiest way is teaching by example. Older women in the church are even to teach younger women to love their husbands and their children (see Titus 2:4).

A person who loves will give his time and his resources to the one he loves. For example, It takes love to give your time to pray for someone else. It takes love to inconvenience yourself to give your money to someone who is not you.

As children of God, we have been empowered to love. Whether we feel it or not, we now have the power to love people, whether they deserve it or not (remember that God loved us when we did not deserve it). The power of love is the most powerful in the universe. Only those who are born of God have this power to love the way God does.

Go into today remembering that Christians are to be people of love (John 13:35).
Prayer: Ask the Lord to make you a person dominated by love.

1 Peter 1:25 (KJV)
"But the Word of the Lord endureth forever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you"

Further reading: 1 Peter 1:24 and Isaiah 40:6-9.

Man ought to labor for fruits that will remain. This is because all flesh is like grass and everything that makes it attractive (its glory, beauty, and riches, etc) is transitory, like the flower of the field.

See brethren, the word of God equates your wealth and possessions with the flowers and the grasses of the field. The grass shall wither and the flower which is the glory of the grass shall also fade away. But the good news for man is that every word that proceeds from the mouth of God abides forever. By the word of God, Man shall not perish but live. That is what we call eternity in man.  Do you have the word which is the source of eternity?

By the Word we receive eternal life. Anyone who lives by the Word shall not perish. He can never be choked by the pressures of life.

Jesus came to restore eternal life to man (John 3:16). He came to restore man to a relationship with God.

Do you have Jesus in your life or have you lost the life of eternity? Take it back. It's all you've got. Nothing else matters.

It grieves God when people live and labor for that which is not eternal.
Brethren, Life eternal is the hope of our calling in Christ. Receive the true gospel of faith for this is the victory that overcomes the world.

Go into today determined to spread the gospel of eternal life by your confessions and actions. The world is waiting for your manifestation.
Prayer: Father, reveal eternal life to me. Let my business, career, ministry, and family be sustained by your word.

FORGIVE

Colossians 3:12-13 (NET)
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if someone happens to have a complaint against anyone else. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also forgive others.

I had a conversation with a man who was trying to prove to me that the teachings of Jesus were for those under the law and not for those who are born again. His biggest point was that Jesus taught that if we do not forgive others who have wronged us, our heavenly FATHER would not forgive us our trespasses. But the apostles taught Christians to forgive others because they have been forgiven, not so that they will be forgiven.

I had to point out to him that what Jesus said was actually meant for those who are already believers because we are the only ones who can come to God as our FATHER. No one comes to the FATHER except through Christ.

I showed him from the parable of the unmerciful servant (in Matt 18:21-35) that the unmerciful servant had first received forgiveness from his master before he was expected to forgive the other servant that owed him. His master did not forgive him because he forgave, but he was expected to forgive because he had been forgiven.

I went on to explain to him that the only criterium for receiving the forgiveness of God is to believe in Christ Jesus and accept God’s grace which brings forgiveness because of the sacrifice of Christ. That if we consistently refuse to forgive others who wrong us, we are proving that we do not appreciate or acknowledge God’s grace in forgiving us.

As we walk on the earth, we are going to need cleansing by the blood from time to time (1 John 1:7). We would not receive this cleansing and forgiveness if we refuse to forgive those who have wronged us. Remember that we have to walk in the light in order for the blood of Jesus to cleanse us. Refusing to forgive your brother (which is the root of hatred) is how not to walk in the light (see 1 John 2:9).

Colossians 3:10-11 (NET)
...And have been clothed with the new man that is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of the one who created it. Here there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all and in all.

When Ada became born again and started attending a Bible believing Church, she observed that the Igbo women in the church were particularly nice to her when they found out that she was Igbo. They started inviting her to visit them in their homes. She soon realized that they had some kind of union within the church. And that was the case with most of the major languages.

As she grew in her walk with the Lord, she noticed that tribalism was in her heart. She somehow knew that this was not right for her. But she did not know how dangerous it was until she read Colossians 3 and noticed that in verse 10-11, being a new man in Christ meant she was no longer to primarily identify herself according to her earthly identity. She saw that seeing herself this way was greatly limiting her spiritually. She found herself limited in her ability to fulfill her ministry because of this. She had to cry to the Lord for help and repent of this mindset.

Many believers do not walk in the fullness of their inheritance in Christ because they are still racist or tribalistic. They still primarily see themselves after the flesh and not after the spirit.

In the spirit, every believer in Christ Jesus is of one new race. We are all citizens of heaven. And there is neither Jew nor Gentile. No Igbo or Yoruba, no Barbarian or Scythian, no white or black. But Christ is all in all. Walking in the Spirit entails seeing yourself in the Spirit.

Go into today remembering that those who only see themselves through their earthly identity will deny themselves the full benefits of their heavenly identity.
Thank God because your real identity is in Christ.

Philippians 3:10-11 (NKJV)
that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.


By the time Apostle Paul wrote the words above, He had already been in ministry for many years and had preached to many people. He already had great revelations of the Lord Jesus Christ and had established many churches. But here we see him saying that his aim is to know the Lord Jesus. What does he really mean?

Apostle Paul understood that the more a person knows the Lord, the more like the Lord that person will become. And the ultimate of this is attaining to the resurrection from the dead. This means walking in the gloried body. Apostle Paul understood that it was possible for a person to so know God that he can attain to the resurrection from the dead. And he was not talking about the resurrection that we will all experience on the day of resurrection; he was talking about attaining it in his lifetime because of his rich knowledge of God. He was talking about being so saturated with God that a person becomes transfigured before the rapture.

The first thing a believer will experience in his true knowledge of the Lord is the power of His resurrection. This power is the greatest power ever known to man. It is the power that raised Jesus from the dead. All the powers of darkness couldn’t stop this power. This is the power that makes a believer a supernatural being. It empowers us to live truly holy lives, heal the sick, cast out devils, work miracles, raise the dead, etc.

Go into today remembering that our destiny in growing spiritually is to become like Christ, both in character and in stature. As long as your life is not yet fully like that of Christ, you still have to grow.

Colossians 3:7-8 (NET) 
You also lived your lives in this way at one time, when you used to live among them.
But now, put off all such things as anger, rage, malice, slander, abusive language from your mouth.

There was a time in my life that I realized it was very difficult for me to forgive those who offended me. Even though I was already a believer baptized in the Holy Spirit, I didn’t realize that unforgiveneess and malice were so dangerous until I realized they were hindering my fruitfulness in God's kingdom.

The sins mentioned above are those that can be in the life of a believer and he may not take it seriously. Unlike the sins mentioned in Col 3:5, these ones do not feel as defiling as them, but we are to put them off because they are not consistent with our new divine nature.

As you go into today, examine yourself under the light of God’s word. Ask the Lord to help you put off anything that is not in his nature.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, please help me put off everything in me that does not please you. Amen.

Colossians 3:5-6 (NET)
So put to death whatever in your nature belongs to the earth: sexual immorality, impurity, shameful passion, evil desire, and greed which is idolatry.
Because of these things the wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience.

Fola was terribly afflicted in her body and she did not understand why this kept going on. She cried to the Lord for help. One Saturday morning, Pastor Clara felt led to go pray for Fola. But before she started praying, she felt led to ask Fola certain questions. It became clear to pastor Clara that Fola was still living like an unbeliever, even though she was very committed to the church. Fola’s sinful life was the reason she was afflicted. She confessed her faults to Pastor Clara and she became healed after Pastor Clara prayed for her and anointed her with oil. (see James 5:13-16).

The reason why believers must put to death whatever is in their nature that belongs to the earth is because we do not want to be partakers in the wrath of God that is coming on the sons of disobedience.

Many believers suffer many things that they are not to suffer because they are still living as unbelievers.
This doesn’t mean the righteous cannot be afflicted. The only difference is that the Lord will always deliver the righteous (see Psalm 34:19).

Go into today determining to mortify everything in you that is not in conformity to the nature of Christ.
Ask the Lord to help you to this end.
