Is Pride Lurking In Your Heart?

It's a New Week!

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you had a lovely weekend. My weekend was full of a number of activities which I thoroughly enjoyed. Yesterday was also beautiful as I spent time with our church family. I didn't feel like leaving church. It was such a great time in God's presence and with God's people.

This week's post is an opportunity for you to search your heart if pride is lurking in your heart. A humble prayer you could pray to God is "Lord Jesus, search me and show me the state of my heart, please reveal to me where pride is lurking in my heart."

Do you know that pride is an enemy? As Christians, do you know that you are to resist pride in your life? 


Pride makes you see yourself as greater than you are. It gives you an unrealistic view of yourself. Pride also makes you to be very critical of others. The Lord isn't keen on those that are proud. Proverbs 16:5 says "Everyone that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; though they join hands, they shall not go unpunished."

Let me share a story in the Bible about a Commander of the Syrian armies with you:

Are you living on the benefits of Thanksgiving?

Hello Everyone,

How are you today? I hope you are well? 

We are living in a society where a number of people aren't aware of the benefits that they are entitled to. As a professional that works for the government, I regularly equip people on what they are entitled to. I also have to keep abreast with the laws and guidance so that I can give the right advice to people as I wouldn't want anyone to miss out on their entitlements. But do you know what? A number of Christians do miss out on their entitlements or they aren't aware of their kingdom entitlements. They aren't aware of what the Lord has done for them. 

As a teacher of the Word, a Faith Blogger, a Church Pastor, an Evangelist, and an Author (I wear many hats), I thought to remind you of some of the kingdom benefits of being a Christian during this Thanksgiving season.

1 Corinthians 15:57 says "But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."


Who gives you victory? God

Through whom? Jesus Christ

When last did you thank God for the victory that you have in Christ?

Psalm 103:1-5, GNT says:

"Praise the Lord, my soul! All my being, praise His holy name! Praise the Lord, my soul, and do not forget how kind He is. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He keeps me from the grave and blesses me with love and mercy. He fills my life with good things so that I stay young and strong like an eagle.

Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits; who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases."

The above Psalm is reminding you that God forgives ALL your sins and not some sins. God heals ALL diseases and not some diseases. God keeps you from the grave and blesses you with His love and mercy. These are some of the kingdom benefits for those that honour the Lord.

As you celebrate today's Thanksgiving, please take time out to remember all the benefits of the Lord over you, your family, and your nation. Give thanks to God.

Your Good Character will Open Great Doors for You!

Hello Everyone,

I hope your week is going on well. It has been at least 2 weeks since I shared an article via my blog. I had been checking with God to confirm what He would like me to share with you. Recently, God said He would like me to equip you with the truth of His Word about 'good character'.

Do you know that a good character with a good attitude can open great doors for you?



You may have the best skills and can perform your task exceptionally well but do you know what will keep you at your job or whatever you are doing (whether paid or unpaid)? It is a good character. When you have a good character, people will be able to relate with you freely, people will be able to trust you and you will have a good name.

You can teach people talents and skills, but a good character is something that most people have developed. Let me share an account from the Bible with you:

In those days when the number of disciples was increasing and some people's needs were being overlooked. The 12 disciples gathered together and spoke among themselves saying that it would not be right for them to neglect the ministry of the Word of God in order to wait on tables to meet some other needs. They decided to choose seven men of good and attested character and repute, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom they assigned to look after the people (Acts 6). 

The first thing that the disciples prioritised was a good and attested character, then came 'filled with Holy Ghost and wisdom.' So as much as talent and gift are good, if you do not have a good character, people may struggle to work with you or may not want to relate with you.

Would you please take time to reflect on your character? 

I'd like to encourage you to build your life on good character. A solid character will take you far in life. 

To build a good character, consider the following:

1) Grow closer to God and follow His Word - You will grow in good character as you spend time in God's Word.

2) Fellowship with people with good character - If the Bible says that bad company corrupts good manners (1 Corinthians 15:33), the opposite of this is, good company promotes good manners. So take time to be with people with good character, they will rub off on you. If you spend a lot of time with people with bad manners, they will also rub off on you. 

3) Understand the boundaries that are required to follow wherever you find yourself.

4) Ask God to open your eyes to what you need to improve in your character.

I love hearing from you in the comment section. Please take a minute to say hello in the comment section.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

Yours in Christ,

The Importance of Christian Fellowship

Hello Everyone,

How are you? I hope your week is off to a great start.

Yesterday, we had a light party for the children at the kids' church and it was such a beautiful event. All the children were full of joy, they had fun engaging in different creative Biblical activities that were centred on 'Be The Light'. Most of the children did not want to leave the kids' church as they had too much fun with one another.  

The children's light party made me reflect on the importance of fellowshipping with other Christians. Sometimes we underestimate the benefits of spending time with our church family. I would like to share 3 benefits of why we should spend time with our church family.


1) There is something special when we sing and pray together. We are strengthened in the place of prayer and we are sharpened in the things of God. After all, Proverbs 27:17 says "Iron can sharpen iron. In the same way, people can help each other."

2) We are able to socialise and celebrate with one another. If your countenance is different from how you are normally, your church family would likely check on you and support you accordingly.

3) Creating time to fellowship with our church family helps us to develop a number of people's skills (how to relate with others, listening skills, patience, punctuality, improving your talents and skills, serving one another, and many more). 

When Jesus Christ was on earth, most of the time, He spent time with His disciples. This is a reminder that Christ is the perfect model of the importance of fellowship. 

I love hearing from you in the comment section. Please take a minute to share why you create time to fellowship with other Christians.

Have a lovely week! 

Yours in Christ,

God, The Good and Great Shepherd

Hello Everyone,

How are you doing? I hope you are well. Recently, I asked my Bible Study group members to reflect on Psalm 23 by using different Bible versions. They felt refreshed after spending time reading Psalm 23 in different Bible versions. I thought it would only be fair for Mysses Lafunky's readers to benefit from this study. Thus, I'd like you to read and reflect on Psalm 23.

Psalm 23 (TPT version) states:

Yahweh is my best friend and my shepherd. 
I always have more than enough - Verse 1. 

He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. 
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace near the quiet brook of bliss - Verse 2. 

That’s where he restores and revives my life. 
He opens before me the right path
and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness 
so that I can bring honour to his name - Verse 3.

Even when your path takes me through
the valley of deepest darkness,
fear will never conquer me, for you already have!
Your authority is my strength and my peace. 
The comfort of your love takes away my fear.
I’ll never be lonely, for you are near - Verse 4.

You become my delicious feast
even when my enemies dare to fight.
You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit; 
you give me all I can drink of you until my cup overflows - Verse 5. 

So why would I fear the future?
Only goodness and tender love pursue me all the days of my life.
Then afterwards, when my life is through,
I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you! - Verse 6.

Did any words stick out to you from the above Psalm 23?

Is there anything that you need right now that was mentioned in Psalm 23?

Walk the Walk & Talk the Talk as a Christian

Hello Everyone,

How are you? I hope you are good. I was thinking as a Christian, how much of the Word of God do we know? I believe an average Christian listens to sermons at least once a week, right? But the question is, are we putting the Word of God that we know into practice?




God would like you to do both. He would like you to know Him and put His Word into practice. God wants you to walk the walk, talk the talk and live the life of a Christian.



You don't need to use your own willpower to put God's Word into practice, God is ready to help you. However, it is a collaborative work between you and the Holy Spirit. 

Philippians 2:12 says “Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfil his good purpose.” 

There is a role for you to "work out" your salvation. There's a role for you to take your spiritual growth seriously by responding to the Word of God that you are hearing or reading. 

Romans 12:2b says “Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” 

The question is, are you allowing God to transform you on a daily basis?  

To be transformed is for you to change completely, in your appearance, and your character and to become better.

5 Things the Blood of Jesus Christ has done for You

 Hello Everyone,

I hope you are well and keeping safe. Happy Monday! Yesterday, I preached a sermon in church about the Blood of Jesus. It was a glorious service. Glory to be God! I would like to equip you with the truth of God's Word about the power in the Blood of Jesus Christ. Let me share 5 things the Blood of Jesus Christ has done for you.


1) The Blood of Jesus Christ has given you victory over the enemy (the devil). Regardless of any storm that you go through, rest assured that God's plan for you is to be victorious as the blood of Jesus Christ has paved the way for you. Did you know that the blood of Jesus was one of the things that granted angel Michael victory over the devil when war broke out in heaven? Read Revelation 12:7-11 for more information. 

It's important to note that as you call upon the Blood of Jesus to work for you, you must give yourself completely to God. You must stand against the devil and its strategies so that he will flee from you (James 4:7).  The seven sons of Sceva were overthrown and overpowered by the devil because they had not given themselves completely to Jesus Christ (Acts 19:11-16). 

2) You have received the forgiveness of sin by the Blood of JesusHebrews 12:24 (NLT) says "You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel."

Matthew 26:28 (NLT) says "For this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many."

3) You have been made right in God's sight by the Blood of Jesus. Romans 5:9 says "And since we have been made right in God's sight by the blood of Christ, He will certainly save us from God's condemnation."

We had all fallen short of God's glorious standards (Romans 3:23). Colossians 1:21-22 (NLT) says "This includes you who were once far away from God. You were His enemies, separated from Him by your evil thoughts and actions. Yet now He has reconciled you to Himself through the death of Christ in His physical body. As a result, He has brought you into His own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before Him without a single fault.”

Thanks be to Jesus Christ for restoring our relationship with God. 

4) By the Blood of Jesus, you have bold access to approach God in prayer and worship. Hebrews 10:19 (NLT) says "And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus."

Whenever you feel like staying away from God after you have made a mistake. Could I please encourage you to do the opposite of your feeling? Please go to God and ask Him for forgiveness, confess your sin and forsake your sin. 

5) You have been saved from a life of sin by the Blood of Jesus.

1 Peter 1:18-19 (NLT) says "For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God."

You have been bought with a price, with the precious blood of Jesus. Only the precious blood of Jesus could pay for your redemption back to God's family. The Father purchased you back to Himself with the blood of His only Son. Therefore, please do not doubt the love God has for you and the incredible value and worth God places on you. 

Jesus paid for all your sins by His precious blood. He paid it all. Since He paid for all your sins, He said you belong to Him. Psalm 100:3 says "Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are His. We are His people, the sheep of His pasture."

Do you believe you belong to God and you are no longer your own?

Do you allow God to be the Lord over everything that pertains to you?
