WHY HE WAS GIVEN
– Monday November 9th 2015

Memorise: And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14:3

Read: John 14:1-3
, 14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

MESSAGE!
What is life? In simplistic terms, we can define life as the opposite of death. When you travel to a far country, say for a period of three months, you will experience a temporary separation between you and the people, things and locations you are familiar with. But when death occurs, it permanently separates you from the things you love, from your loved ones and from the places you are familiar with. God gave Jesus to us to give us life and to destroy the one who had the power of death – the devil (Hebrew 2:14). For this reason, wherever the process of death has been activated, Jesus can terminate it and restore life fully. In John 11:25, He declared Himself to be the Resurrection and the Life. God’s gift to us in the person of Jesus shows how much God loves us – to the point of giving us the gift of life (John 3:16). With Jesus, death cannot permanently take hold of you (1st Corinthians 15:54).
Also, Jesus came so that we would not die financially. To be financially dead is to be financially bankrupt. Have you experienced this in your business? The Lord will bring your finances back to life. Jesus became poor so that you can be financially free (2nd Corinthians 8:9). Because of the price Jesus has paid, financial freedom is yours from today! Jesus is our Shepherd so that we would not lack anything good (Psalm 23:1). In addition, Jesus was given so that we might not die mentally. A mentally dead fellow is one who has lost control of his or her mind. 2nd Timothy 1:7 says:
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Even for the mentally sick, Jesus can restore the intellect. You can regain your mental wholeness. Whatever is wrong with you mentally, the Lord will put right today in Jesus’ Name.
Moreover, Jesus was given to us so that we can have a permanent relationship with the Almighty God for the rest of our lives. Through Jesus, you have access to your heavenly mansion after your sojourn on earth. This is one reason why you must not break the relationship between the Lord and yourself. Nothing on earth is worth separating you from Christ. Never allow anything, no matter how alluring, to break you off from the love of Christ. He was given generally for everyone but specifically for you. Ensure you respond positively to God’s love so that you can maximally enjoy the benefits of knowing Him. It is well with you.

We're Empowered to Empower Others

One important truth we must all come to terms with in our world today is that as long as we're alive, we'll always be confronted by one challenge or the other. It is childish and immature to think or believe that life, at any given time will be trouble-free. It is then imperative that we understand that we face challenges so we can become stronger and grow to be who God created us to be. 
However, God promises to strengthen and comfort us when we go through trials. He promised to be with us when we go through any storm or fire. 
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you" Isaiah 43:2
When God does, He then expects us to extend the comfort and strength to others. We are to Empower Others with what God gives us. Just as we know that we can't give what we don't have, we are expected to pass on to o…

HUSTLER OR ENTREPRENEUR?

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…
