Do You Know The Jesus Of The Bible?

If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.

John 14:7

Someone once told me that just because you ask God for something, it does not mean that He will give it to you. Quoting 1 John 5:14–15, he said that we first have to ask according to His will before He hears and gives us what we ask of Him.

Why Museveni’s Towering Achievements Extenuate His Overstay In Power

By Andrew Mwenda

Museveni inherited a country where both the state and economy had collapsed. He has reconfigured the state and placed the economy on a long term growth trajectory #ugvotes2021

Today President Yoweri Museveni was nominated to run for an eighth term of office. When he wins this election, it will take him to 40 years as president, a remarkable feat. His efforts to cling to power, in spite of many promises not to, tells us very little about Museveni the man but a lot about power itself: few men find it possible to leave it easily and willingly.

Why Pastoral Roles Are Getting Really Ambiguous

It is a real disaster when the men of the cloth as the salt of the world lose their flavour

Matthew 5: 13

Last week’s Frontline show on NBSTV had Retired Anglican Bishop Zach Niringiye as one of the guests. Whereas the show was captivating as it always is, I was rather taken aback by the extent to which a man spruced up in a religious collar seemed willing to go, to make a [political] case.

Don’t Let Your Past Rob You

Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:13–14

Are you living a life of regrets thinking, “If only…”? “If only I had that college education…If only I had married the right girl…If only I had taken up the other job…If only I had not made that stupid mistake…”

Is your past robbing you of the joy of today? Then forget your past!
