The popular saying that “a person who knows how to show appreciation for a previous favour will receive another”, instructively guides us into our discussion today. It is doubtful if there is any culture the world over where good gestures are not appreciated.
Some of us who did village hunting can still remember how our dogs would call us to go for hunting or to follow it and pick a game it had caught. Sometimes it was our parents who would tell us to follow the dog who was nudging, wagging the tail and even taunting on us.
The church of Pergamos was located where Satan dwells and it did not stop them from holding fast to the Name of the Lord. It is amazing that Jesus did not even ask them to relocate, but simply asked them to repent from their sexual immorality and to abandon the false doctrines they were holding to.
If someone comes to you and tells all the good things he has seen in you and the marvelous things you have done; but when he is concluding his talk, he uses the word, "Nevertheless…" I am sure your breath will go up and you will want to hear what he will say next.
God is seeking labourers who will take his word to lost humanity and he is counting on you and me to take it as a matter of urgency. From the very beginning of creation God has always valued man more than any of his creation.
Most often when Christians pray they pray like this: "Lord, send someone to bless ME. Father, please send MY destiny helper." What's wrong with this prayer? If it ends here, the prayer is too selfish. When are we going to also be destiny helpers to others? A blessing to others?

What happens when the righteous pray? Well the common knowledge is that our prayers are heard and answered by God. That is right. But do you know that there are services held in heaven during which our prayers are literally offered as sacrifices on a golden altar?
There are many inventors in life whose names are never heard about because they gave up on the verge of their discoveries. Life is about persistence, and one man who was very persistent in his pursuit of greatness was Elisha (2nd Kings 2).

We can analyze and meditate on this theme all our lives because it is the very reason for our existence on earth. I am on earth to glorify God. God created us to glorify him and all the redeemed must give more glory to God by their lives. The big question is how to glorify God?
Who is a wise Christian? We may have so many answers, but let's look at this few: (1) A wise Christian is one who puts the word of God into practice. He is a wise builder who builds his life on the rock (Matthew 7:24-27). No problem will bring him down.
There is a good and normal practice that is gradually dying among many Christians today, Evangelism or Witnessing. Let me ask you, when is the last time you invited someone to Church or preach the Gospel to someone? When Andrew found Jesus Christ, it did not take long for him to invite his brother Peter. Our passage says, " The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ)."
When you experience somethings in your life that are not supposed to take place, you should begin to suspect that there is a door opened that should be closed. From our main verse above, Jesus does not only open doors, He can also help you to shut some doors. Hallelujah! What are such doors that needs to be close?
