When a person becomes a Christian, his conduct and personality
should undergo certain changes. One of these changes has to do with
emotions i.e. temper. A Christian should react in a Christian way. He
should not lose his temper. Handling anger properly is a critical life
skill for Christians. Anger can cripple communication between two
people and rip apart families and relationships in churches. God’s
Word not only teaches how to deal with anger but also how to
overcome sinful anger.

Repentance is the activity of reviewing one’s actions and feeling contrition or regret for past wrongs, which is accompanied by a commitment to change for the better. Other words to describe repentance are Sorrow, regret, pricked conscience, and remorse. Repentance means to ‘clean up your act’. It may also stand for repair, reconciliation, and restitution. It is the admission of faults, acknowledgment of wrongdoing, and taking proper precautions or seeking help to ensure that similar situations don’t arise. Salvation is a gift of God, but it came at a price. Does repentance lead to salvation or will salvation give repentance? It is assumed that man can repent by his own strength but the moral evidence and the constant struggle and failure to attain a godly life in our world today is pointing to the fact that repentance like grace and faith is a gift of God to our heart which has the great capacity to stray after evil. (Ephesians 2:8) For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves it is the gift of God.

Unbelief is like doubt yet different doubts come from ignorance and lack of intimacy with someone or an idea. When we doubt God, it points to our lack of knowledge of His promises, a false idea about His personality power and ability. It results from the build-up of strongholds in our minds formed by experience, thoughts conceptions and environment. Unbelief, however, is when you know and acknowledge that there is a God, who is powerful, yet you don’t believe His word. (Psalms 78: 21-22). ‘Therefore, when the lord heard, he was full of wrath a fire was kindled against Jacob, His anger rose against Israel, because they did not believe in God, and did not trust his saving power’. Unbelief is a direct whisper from the devil to the mind of a person. A negative opinion formed about God is usually deposited in our minds by Satan.

Jesus said, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden”. It is true and worthy of acceptance that 2020 has been a very difficult year, we will not forget the numerous events that took place in a while.

We grieve for the souls that were lost, the families that are bereaved, job losses, uncertainties and stormy circumstances. Despite all of these, I dare to say that we now have a new normal, a season where the resilience of the human spirit shines forth, we refuse to be tied down and so we move on in the strength of God.

Pslams 5:12 says “You oh lord will bless the righteous and with favour you will encompass him as with a shield”

God also promised in Psalms 126:1 that when he turned again the captivity of Zion, it was like a dream. We may wonder how we shall recover from the economic downturn, job losses and any other kind of losses but the word for this season is favour.

Psalms 102:13 “You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favour to her; the appointed time has come”

When there was lack and hunger among the followers of Jesus and it looked as if they will perish for lack of bread, a little boy appeared with just a few pieces of food and after divine blessings the little food fed an army of people.

Together and with God’s help, we shall overcome and in due season, our victory shall shine forth.

Remain in grace.
