One Body In Christ

From Brother Lucky . . .  A Little Introduction.


Am so excited to be in touch with you as  the LORD has led you  to this post this 1st day of September; and also my first post for the year.

Permit me to give a little info about me, first of all am an ordinary Nigerian man. I was born when all my mates were born, over four decades ago and have been married for years to my wife whose blog am guest posting as the Lord has directed us to do.

I am not a theologian,, am not a scientist, am not a writer, am not a teacher, am not a preacher man, am not an elder or even a leader, am not an extraordinary business man ............the only thing extraordinary in my life  is the


Dear brethren, I have nothing much to say today as this is my first time doing this . . so am still trying to get used to this. For today I just come to you with  this plea that we should  all remain steadfast in our faith no matter where we have been called to serve; do your best for God at all cost. Do not think you cannot go the extra mile for God because of certain limitations you might feel you have, always encourage yourself in the fact that we are "one body in Christ"  we will be there for one another,  because we know that every one and part in Christ is special in their own way.

Here is what the  word of GOD says  in the book of  Romans 12:4-5

4Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others

From the least in the body of Christ to the very top, each have their respective roles to play; just as the eyes can not accuse the legs of not being watchful  or the brain accuse the hands of not being intelligent.  I tell you that even the least functioning part of the body of the body of Christ has direct impact/consequences to the other. . .  because in the end we are one big Body In Christ.

So brethren do not take for granted what ever it is you can do to advance the kingdom of GOD.

Till next Time

Stay blessed as we continue to strive for perfection in  Jesus mighty name Amen.

  3. It is indeed a great blessing to hear what our Heavenly Father has given you to say, my dear Brother Lucky!!! Your wife has always spoken very highly of you unto me, and it is easy to see why.

  4. Bro Lucky,

    Welcome to the blogosphere! My good sis has told me many times what a godly man you are and it'll be a blessing to read your posts and enjoy fellowship with you.

    Soli deo Gloria!

  5. well done more please.let God work through you and your wife .God blessing to you and yours.

  6. I've spent the last few days thinking "what's the point?". It's hard to trust that God may be doing something with you - even though you can't see the results. Those thoughts sneak in so often - but this post was such a blessing!! I forget that I don't have to do things on a grand scale in order to do something for His kingdom!!

  7. Amen! We put limitations on what we think we can do for Christ and through Him. But the word of God says, "We can do all things!" We just have to surrender our way of thinking to God's way and we must be obedient unto His word. We have to walk in the authority given to us by Christ Jesus! AMEN and Praise His Name!
