E NA DEI NA NOMU VAKABAUTA KE O WILIKA NA I VOLATABU E NA VEISIGA.

The wicked flee when no one pursues,but the righteous are as bold as a lion.Proverbs 28:1 (NRSV)  Ko na ririko ka tavaiyaya ke sega ni vakadeitaki iko na vosa ni Kalou. A clear conscience is required for confident living and spiritual boldness.As I looked to the people who followed Christ,I discovered that they were not afraid to stand boldly for Christ and all he taught. As I became more bold and courageous in my Christian walk,I found true freedom.The Devil make you scare and unsecure but…

NA KAUVEILATAI SA I NODA DEWADEWA KI NA BULA TAWAMUDU.

God made him who had sin to be sin for us,so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Cor.5:21 (NIV). Thankfully,God provided the way and built a bridge to heaven and everlasting life through his son,Jesus Christ.This bridge was made possible by way of a great sacrifice and glorious resurrection.Jesus is the bridge that crosses the great divide between us and eternity.We must simply believe to receive salvation.

You may be tempted to throw in the towel and walk away…

18 Ways to Motivate Yourself In Ministry

18 Ways to Motivate Yourself In Ministry

By Rick Warren

 

When it comes to ministry leadership, I don’t focus on trying to motivate other people. I worry about motivating me, and if I’m motivated it will be contagious. This is true in any area of ministry. Your duty is not necessarily to motivate others. But if you stay motivated, people will catch your enthusiasm. They will catch your…

God Does Big Things In Small Churches

By Scott Attebery

 

Remember the Pepsi Challenge? It was a marketing campaign in the 80’s where people would be offered two unmarked cups. One contained Coke and the other contained Pepsi. After taking a sip of both, the participants would be asked to reveal which one they liked the best.

Apparently more people picked Pepsi. At least,…

Mo Vakataqara Vua Na KALOU Na Nomu I Colacola Kecega.

Jesus said,"Come to me all you are labor and are burdened,and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,for I am meek and humble of heart,and will find rest for yourselves.For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Mathew 11:28-30.

A yoke is a curved piece of timber that links two draft animals,one to the other.The jews people used the yoke image for the Mosiac Law.If you link to the law you will travel the right path.Jesus takes the Image and applies to himself,"…

Na Loloma Levu Ni KALOU E Sega Ni Vakaiyalayala.

As high as the heavens are above the earth,so great is God's love for those who fear him;as far as the east is from the west,so far has he removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:11,12. (NIV).

Beyond the bright blue sky I admire the stars,the moon and the clouds,and the love of God reaches farther still.Our Lord is called the "Most High" for a reason:No love is more expensive.When I became a born-again Christian,I learned that God's love reaches beyond my mistakes,my fears and…

God who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells in you.Romans 8:11 (NRSV).TRICOTOMY-We are consists of BODY,SOUL AND SPIRIT.The Spirit is everlasting and belongs to the Creator. Sometimes in life we may face major setbacks such as health issues,financial issues,emotional struggles,or the loss of a job.When these setbacks occur we can feel vulnerable,scared,upset and very angry.I wonder if the people who lived in the time of Jesus…

NA NOMU VAKABAUTA E NA VAKAVUNA NA NOMU VUAVUAI VINAKA.

Jesus said,"I am the true vine...Remain in me,as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself;it must remain in the vine.Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me." John 15: 1,4 (NIV) ( Mo sema tiko ki na vuni vaini,ke sega o na sega ni rawata e dua na ka.) Of course when it comes to bearing fruit is our service to God.Jesus described how we can faithfully bear fruit,"If you remain in me and I in you,you will bear more fruit" (John 15:5).

The uniqueness of the…

Which one of you having a hundred sheep and loosing one of them ,does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he find it? Luke 15:4 (NRSV)We all belong to a flock and are created to please God.From the beginning that's the way God searches for us.It is not the person who goes searching for God but God who goes searching for the person,The whole Bible is a story of God searching for us until our relationship was restored in Christ.

God said,"Take off your sandals for the place where you are standing is holy ground". Exodus 3:5 (NIV).You come to God with a humble spirit and pure in heart.God's plans for us contain a lot of surprises and provides the means to reach our goals.Exodus relates the story of freedom for God's people from slavery and the beginning of national identity.The call of Moses from the burning bush and the Holy ground remind us that God never leave us.

Although you have not seen Jesus Christ,you love him;and even though you do not see him now,you believe in him and rejoice with and undescribable and glorious joy,for you are receiving the outcome of your faith,the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:8,9. (NRSV). There's a lot of entertainment in life that uplift your soul,but they will come and go.Salvation of your soul will lead you to eternity because that's where our destination is.Abraham when he knew God, he built an Altar and called…
