If there is anything I love about Sho Baraka, it is the way he writes songs that are on point. This particular song "100" is talking about how as Christians we should not give our 99.5% to the cause rather we should give it 100. What he says in the song is true because I really want to get to that point where I am leaving solely for Jesus Christ. I don't wanna be a lukewarm Christian.. i want to give God my ALL. Here are the lyrics to the song and I hope it blesses you the same way as it blessed me...

Verse 1
What I look like caring if the world don't feel us/ I serve a God who died harder than Bruce Willis/ man's born sick and he just gets ill'er/ in our optimistic prime he could transform a killer/ he could transform a dealer, ask Json/ we were all born sinners ask my mom/ my nature's no better than Judas and that's the truth/ without the spirit I'm a arrogant adulterous dude/ so I keep accountability until I get old/ Tedashii said, "Bring the heat cuz the world's so cold"/ I gotta live 100 so my feet don't slip/ I gotta live like Jacob more holy less hip/ by his grace Sho Baraka gone spit the real/ been doing that Reach life before I got the deal/ called to make mini-me's til the day that I die/ so on my tombstone say, "he didn't die he multiple"/

I gotta keep it (100)
My men keep it (100)
My ladies keep it (100)
We gotta keep it (100)

Verse 2
Back in the year of the 2 triple 0/ this random thug tried to strong arm the Sho/ me and my boys on the corner just sharing our faith / this cat staring at us like he got something to say/ he began to size us up acting tough talking loud/ I tried to ignore him but this fool attracted a crowd/ I expected some resistance but this aint what I wanted/ I had 99 problems this made 100/ he looked me in the face and said if you love that Christ/ you'll have no problem with me sending you to see him tonight/ I'm thinking option number one is we can turn the other cheek/ number 2 is we can stomp his loud mouth in the street/ but that's what they want to see us fail when they test us/ talk a good game but then crack under pressure/ so I prayed to GOD, if I have to take this L/ I hope out of this you would get your glory as well/ so this cat stared at us for a second or two/ jumped at us and smirked like I'm playing with you/ we have to represent the Lord even though they were stuntin/ no matter what they do we gotta keep it 100


Verse 3
They move their lips but their words mean nothing/ they think God got their back but them boys just frontin/ they talk loud but we can drown out the sickest boys/ we like Chicago, willing to make the ill'er noise/ they want toys, fame, wealth and health/ everything good without being good themselves/ they want things but its Jesus they better get/ cuz hell's their life sentence like a subject and a predicate/ sometimes I see the wicked and I lust for their things/ but then I see the Lord and I trust in the King/ hung on the cross for hours while still in his prime/ we don't call him heir for nothing he showing us hang time/ he is holy, he is perfect, he is God/ God is like three in one, its so odd/ because of all this your boy gotta keep running/ 99 wont do it gotta keep it 100/

God Came Near...

That is the book I am reading now and it is by Max Lucado. The book is pretty amazing and it is closely related to what the theme of this blog is about. After the fall of man, God decided to restore the relationship He wanted with man so He came near us in the form of His son... Aint that amazing? To actually realize that God loves us so much he was willing to come close to us so that He can know what it is like to be Human, so that he can feel our pain... I love this God...

So I will be discussing the book on here.. so guys feel free to keep track commet.. let us discuss the book together...

God bless you...

A question to ask... God came down from Heaven in the form of His son, to save us from death and the people then mocked Him and did not recognize the essence for His coming. How is history repeating itself right now?

Grace is Enough...

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God (KJV)

Amazing scripture right there. This scripture clearly describes the extent to which God loves us. We got salvation on a silver platter, I mean we did not have to do anything to earn it. God just decided that he loves us too much and we deserve to be restored to an amazing relationship with Him. The Message Bible says Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish!

We never have anything to do with grace. God gives it to us because He love us. No wonder people say that grace is unmerited favor.After what happened at the garden of Eden, we do not deserve to be shown love but He keeps on showering us with His mercies that are new every morning. Is that not amazing?

2nd Corinthians 12:9 says ...My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness...
Now God is telling us here that these mercies and gifts he gives us freely is OK and we do not need anything extra. All he needs us to do is have complete trust in Him and when we do that he fixes everything. I think the one step we need to take to have an amazing relationship with God is to completely trust and believe that His grace is enough...

My grace is enough; it's all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.

The Last Jesus

If there is anything I love about this song is that it clearly describes the attitiude of we Christians. The WWJD question ahs become irreleveant all of a sudden and we do not actually care for people. We are concerned with our lives and we do not care for others in the Church and in our community... It is very sad and we need a reorientation...

The song goes

I see you, I need you, but I don't know your name
I touch you, say I love you, but that's all you get for today
It's easy, so easy, to tell you it's gon be okay
When I don't walk shoes, haven't been through what you been through
Instead I push you away
Sunday everyone looks like you
But if our lives are cold inside tell me what's the use

If I say I love Jesus, but you can't see my Jesus
My words are empty, if they can't see Jesus in me
No more excuses, I give myself away
Because I may be the only Jesus they see

Too busy, forgive me, I've got problems of my own
It's easier to say your help is on the way
But I was your help all along
We're shouting, we're dancing, but can the world see a change
Am I just too selfish to see, the love they need You put inside of me

If we say we love Jesus, but they can't see our Jesus
Tell me what's the use if they can't see Jesus in you and me
No more excuses, we give it all away
Because we may be the only Jesus they see

If I am Your hands and Your feet, and if Your church is built inside of me
Where did we go wrong, we been here too long, we can't see Your face anymore
It's not the same anymore

Have mercy on us Jesus, please forgive us Jesus
I lost my purpose, if they can't see You in me
See I lied too long, and I change it all today
Because I may be, because I may be

The only Jesus they see...

Let start by praying for those in Haiti

God bless

Going back to where it all started... The Eden Project

The book of Genesis narrates the creation story. What I love best about the creation story is that it is the point when God decided to make man in His own image and likeness. What an awesome privilege it is for us to be made in the image of the only living God. The thing is that when man fell from grace we lost a whole lot of privileges and then he had to live by the old covenant and blah blah and Jesus had to come and die.... etc

In other words, the aim of this blog is for us Christians to go back and search for the way we can get back to the original plan God had for man. A man of God once said that the Garden of Eden was the place where divinity met with humanity and I think I agree with him. it was more than just a garden, it was a place of communion with God. Together, you and I are going to explore different topics and ask various questions on how we can spend each day of our lives in communion with God. The psalmist said "Better is one day in your courts that an 1000 elsewhere". I want you to join me as we seek the face of God as frequently as possible...

Welcome to The Eden Project...
