DO YOU LOVE ME?

In a society where violence, hatred, lust, abuse (in all forms and types), pride and interclan rivalry are norms. A world, where warriors are celebrated as heroes while lovers are ridiculed as villains.

Maturity is not growing up to live as you were brought-up or thought to but rather, true maturity is growing up to love as you are supposed to irrespective of how you were brought up.

Though I was born into gross hatred, I am deeply grateful to have been conquered with an extravagant love. And so now, my main purpose is to be an Ambassador of Love.

You loving me is not a requirement for my daily life but me loving you is a necessity for my existence.
It is your choice whether or not to love me but it is my obligation and responsibility to love you irrespective of your choice, decision, belief, background, action, or reaction.
I cannot live without loving you because love has become an inherent and integral part of my life and so I cannot decide not to love.

It is so much of a disservice for me to think of not loving you.
As long as you are human, you deserve my love whether or not you feel you need it, is not a factor.

This should be our decision and vision in life. We should make up our minds to love people irrespective of what they have said, planned to do or have done to us. Like Paul of Tarsus said, “Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good.”_Romans 12:21 AMPC. Make it a point of duty to show love to the people that you are privileged to come in contact with.

Whenever someone tells me “Christian, I don’t like you”
In my head: that doesn’t count
My response is: That’s fine, thanks for telling me. I love you anyways.
Because my love for people is not a function of their love for me but rather a spillover of the Extravagant Love of Jesus Christ for me (He loves me passionately and personally despite my erroneous thoughts, ignorance, constant antagonism and disobedience to His Love).

This is why like Paul of Tarsus, “I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men.” _Acts 24:16 NKJV. You have to make a conscious effort to live peaceably with everybody, as much as it is within your ability to do so. You may not be able to control the actions or reactions of people towards you but with love, you are able to influence their decisions consciously or unconsciously.

In conclusion,

The more you grow in love, the freer and more joyous you will become, because love brings healing to your soul by binding the open wounds in your heart.
Therefore, loving others (especially those who have hurt you in the past) is a true test of your love for yourself.

I love you all! 🌟

DRESSING ~ FASHION

I don’t dress because it’s fashionable, neither do I dress to please anybody. I dress to please myself. When I am pleased and comfortable with my outfit, I really don’t care whether or not someone finds it fashionable.

WHY?
First of all, what is “fashionable” is seasonal. For example, what’s fashionable in the Winter or in 2017 may not be fashionable in the Summer or 2018). If you follow the trend you will know that it is revolving. When I was in Junior High, boot cut trousers used to be the trend. By the time I got to Senior High, Pencil jeans (fitted pants) became the “standard”.

Also, fashion is subjective. What seems fashionable to me may seem like an absolutely out of shape to you. People have different tastes, preferences and choices at different times. For instance, I know many see ripped jeans as fashion now, I also know others who see ripped jeans as something bizarre. Yet they are both in the same industry and of like passion.

Finally, fashion is cultural influenced. For example, if you attend native Ghanaian/Nigerian ceremonies, native attires like Kante, Agbada, Dansiki, Etibon, Senator, etc are more fashionable but if you are in the States or Britain, suits and ties are more official dress codes.

As an HEIR 👑 TO THE THRONE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, my responsibility is to dress in a way that will minister Grace to those who see me and more importantly cover my nakedness. It is an insult on my personality to start buying dresses just to feel fashionable to or impress someone.

Therefore, while you value and respect people’s opinions and ideas on how you should dress, ultimately it is your responsibility to choose how and what to put on, when and where. I will end with this:

Fashion without comfort is stupidity

Whatever you choose to wear and represent yourself, make sure you are comfortable with it.

This is my personal opinion and I know a lot of you have awesome ideas about fashion. Let’s have a chat about it here or on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat @ChrisloveCGO

WHEN I SEE DARKNESS

When I looked outside my window

I saw enemies with their hatred

And weapons to attack my vision

But I am not disturbed by them

Because I am living with I AM

And surrounded by His Shield

Of Love and Chariots of Fire

With the Chariots of Fire,

I am protected by I AM even with

My little faith like the mustard seed.

With His shield of Love,

I am ignited by Grace to blossom

As the light that the enemies need

To come to the Light of Love.

Therefore, the darkness that I thought

Was preventing my external vision

And making me shortsighted,

Was as Love opens my eyes,

The condition for my light

To shine brighter to the point of

Giving vision to others from a far

And pointing others to the

Light of Love that lightens all paths

And lead to life with Light no end.

So when I look at my window now,

I no more see hatred of the enemies

But rather, I see the prepared field

For the massive harvest of Love.

Whenever I am in my house now,

I invest in love through my partnership

With I AM as I am engraced

And as I am coming outside of my house,

I ignite the light of Love to cultivate

The ready-made field and bring home

Lights, who are the profits of the Love to Light.

When I see darkness, I invest in Love and I ignite my Light

REVEALED KNOWLEDGE

“And I entreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the Book of Life.” Philippians 4:3 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/php.4.3.KJV

I so much love this statement by Paul “whose names are in the Book of Life”. He’s talking with full assurance that their names are in the Book of Life.
He wasn’t hoping that God will see their work in the vineyard and at the end, out of pity put their names in the Book. He’s reminding the people that their names are already written in the Book of Life.
This is a revelation Knowledge and it comes as a result of total dedication to God and a closer work with the Holy Spirit.
This is not what religion teaches us, it is what Fellowship (Koinonia of the Holy Spirit). This is why at the conclusion of letters to the Churches in different cities, he always says “Grace be multiplied unto you all” and specifically in 2Cor 13v14 – may the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the KOINONIA (COMMUNION OR FELLOWSHIP) OF THE HOLY SPIRIT be with you all”.
The man has come to understand that there is very little you can do or achieve as a Christian without a closer relationship and work with the Holy Spirit.

You can be a Christian for as long as you want, attend all the Bible Studies, Seminaries, Church Services, Prayer Meetings, etc led by the “greatest of the great men/women of God”, read all their biographies, books, personal journals and sleep in the synagogues all the days of your life. Without close relationship with the Holy Spirit, there is a galloping limit to your understanding of the things of eternal value because these things are REVEALED and the Holy Spirit is the Revealer of Secrets (Ephesians 3v5).

Fellowship with the Holy Spirit is much simpler than it seems. It starts by acknowledging His presence in your life (being conscious of the fact that He is in and with you always), praying/speaking/singing in His language (in tongues: Jude 1v20, 1 Corinthians 14v14-15). Then start praying the Prayer of Silence, in which case, you listen attentively, to what He is going to say to you (and write down whatever He says to you). It’s a gradual process.

The Special Birthday 

I told you all that this is a very special birthday to me. It’s very special for so many reasons, some of which may seem a little fictional to some of you (and is okay. Just take the ones you are able to and ignore the ones too deep or fictitious). 

Be informed that this is one of my lightest write-ups and so put on your “laughing cap” even though it may not necessarily be funny. 

On the intellectual side, It’s the end of a phase in my life and beginning of another (interpret what I say to mean what you think👌 but I KNOW WHAT I MEAN 🌟)

On the physical side, it’s my first ever birthday to not actually cut a cake. Intentionally, but it all worked out as divinely orchestrated (no much details here, contact me directly if you are curious). 

Realistically, it is the first birthday ever that I will be almost completely invisible to people. Will probably receive zero phone calls and will not respond to any congratulatory messages or emails within the day. [I actually didn’t – update]. 

On a symbolic side, it’s the first ever birthday that I will receive a “pre-birthday” cake and was presented to me by my Chinese co-worker. I think it’s far too symbolic. It is actually a #MoonCake packaged in a contextualized Ring💍 Box [whatever Moon and Ring have in common is up to you to figure out]. 

On a fun side, it’s the first ever birthday to not think about school even though I’m still a virtual student. 

      Interestingly, I actually had a “Pre-birthday Photoshoot” and I strongly believe it was the best Photoshoot I have ever had in my life. Caleb did an amazing job of capturing me in the culturally transcendental outfit. Check it out http://wp.me/p7J0WO-eB

For those of you young men who want to get married to the “beautiful, sportish girl”: if you have a daughter who wants to get married to a young man (YOU), would you have allowed your beloved daughter to get married to the current you?
