In the Scripture we read “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out” (1Timothy 6:6-7). We have the general tendency of searching for something that will make our lives better, something that will result in great gain or profit. We live in a world where the idea of making profit is very appealing. The Stock market for example is about gaining and making profit. Even though it…..
In John chap 4: 23-24 we read, “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
I guess we all like to have what is true or genuine. Just imagine for a moment that you are given an opportunity to choose between two…..
In Matthew 28: 5-6 we read “And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said.

Thanks be to God for the mighty victory He wrought on the cross of Calvary through…..
When troubles, trials and challenges come you way, lift up your eyes. The Psalmist said, “I will lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth” ( Psalm 121:1-2).

Emmanuel God with us; He has promised never to leave us nor forsake us. There is a connection between Christmas and New Year that we often miss. At Christmas we were reminded again that God is with us. The message of Christmas should prepare us for the New Year and also serve as a springboard for a happy New Year. The presence of God in our lives makes all the difference. In the Bible when I read the phrase “But God,” I am…..
Merry Christmas to you, Christ our Savior is born. Truly this indeed is good news, just as the angel said to the shepherds many years ago “Do not be afraid, for I behold I bring you good tidings of great JOY which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:10-11. Yes Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. In John 3:16 we…..
The title of this blog is taken from Psalm 69:30 “I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.” Another translation reads; “Glorify the Lord with thanksgiving.” Oh that we would praise the Lord for His goodness and His wonderful deeds. It is so easy to take God’s abundant blessings for granted and to forget what he has done for us. Psalm 29:2 admonishes us to “give unto the Lord the glory due unto…..
In His time He makes all things beautiful- Ecclesiastes 3:11. This was the theme of the third year anniversary celebration for The Redeemed Christian Church of God in Erie Pennsylvania on July 13, 2013.

Esan, as a Church planting outreach by RCCG -Pittsburgh, and later became established as a Church on July4, 2010. That was…..
Trials and challenges are part of the reality of life. At one time or the other we will all experience the storms of life, no one is immune to life’s stresses and tough times. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by the tornadoes which occurred recently in Texas and Oklahoma. People who live in high-risk areas for hurricanes and tornadoes have their houses specially designed and built. They also build storm shelters to take refuge in case…..
