You are welcome! Please let me introduce you to a Christian...

Looking, learning, growing and following
Step by step, he’s imitating Jesus;
Leaning, trusting, overcoming and testifying
Over sin and self, becoming victorious.

Wisdom, melody, worship, thanksgiving...
Applying his heart to things pure and praise worthy.
Yielding body, intellect, substance and everything -
His instruments to bring God glory.

Seeking, praying, blessing and supporting
Pursuing at being no more than a servant
Loving, touching, healing and forgiving,
For no vain glory or selfish interest.

Being a citizen, neighbor, worker or lover
Bringing Christ to his every station.
An encourager, healer and peacemaker;
Being a Christian is his primary occupation.

If he falls, it’s only so he’ll rise again.
He is what he is by the grace of God.
He has no past to defend and nothing to feign -
He’s what God says he is, he’s a man of God.

Poem: The Christian ©2010, Tee Akindele

Poetry: Immanuel

Down in the valley of ash and bone
Zion’s hope was worn with chagrin,
Until, on those who sat in darkness, light shone;
Jesse’s stump had budded once again!

… He was a gifted rabbi for sure
And did such miracles none had ever seen,
Yet they could see neither king nor savior
In this most humble Nazarene.

Still around…

It’s been an age since I last put up a post here and I really miss this blog… I absolutely do!

Unfortunately, I’ve had the challenge of having to manage several things at a time and I’ve just been pressed for time. My blogs generally (not just the Being Christian blog) have suffered different levels of abandonment and I really wish it wasn’t so.

A Simple Guide to People Group Lists for World Mission

In previous articles, on this blog, I have made references to several online resources that I have found useful in helping us appreciate better and participate more efficiently in our common task of World Evangelism, whether as committed individuals or a local church, especially by taking today’s unprecedented advantages from technology and globalization. More recently, I came across this very informative material ,  it is an overview of the most important of this statistical resources or knowledge base, and explains their individual input, characteristics and significance.

ICC aids survivors in Jos as they begin again

More than 500 Christians, mainly women and children were killed in religious riots in villages near Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria earlier this year as I mentioned in an older article. Despite the fact that their homes and churches were demolished and their fields burned, the survivors chose to remain in their villages. Living in makeshift homes, they continued to worship the Lord in half-burned churches. Read the full article here …

The imperative of breaking new grounds

Strategizing to take the good news about Christ and his salvation to places where it has never been heard, the most unreached places and peoples of the world, should be a crucial guiding factor in all missionary activity. Even the Apostle, Paul, said that he would rather preach Christ where He hasn’t been named at all rather than where He is already known(Rom 15:20).

Poetry: Turn on The Light

I could live on like this or I may not
And about whether I die, care not
Existence is so not my problem -
It’s of a different kind;
I wish neither to be normal
Nor even to be special,
What I seek is a valid solution
To the question: ‘who am I?’

Gospel Watch

The call to prayer is an earnest call upon every true believer. You can commit to pray each day for atleast one of the least reached people groups in the world using the information provided (in the box to the right side) by the Joshua Project with unreached people groups rotated daily. God bless you as you join in.

How To Pray

Pray that God will open up avenues for the preaching of the gospel to this people group. Col 4:3

pray that every obstacle hindering this people group from accessing the gospel will be removed. 2Cor 4:3,4; 1 Cor 16:9

Pray for missionaries sent and to be sent to this people that God will strenghten and uphold them in face of challenges and give to them increasing oppurtunities for more effective work. Eph 6:19,20; 2Thes 3:1-3; Acts4:29

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Mt 24:14 (KJV)
