We live our lives as if today is the first of many, what if it’s the last? What have you done that is worth living for? What have you done that is worth remembering you for? As the year ends we look back to the goals we had set at the beginning of the year and we try find out if we have conquered the weight scales, found love, passed exams or got married…. Every goal we have set we try to accomplish in one year.

… I betrothed you to one husband… (2 Cori. 11:2-3)
Now and then the sweet tenderness of the Savior closer makes us to long to be taken home to be with our Savior. Our pilgrimage affirms indeed that we are mortals, we are like a flower blooming in the morning but when evening approaches it withers and is blown away by the wind.
This humble exhortation will alert, challenge, console and edge you to pounder deep of such reality, our unsettled and weary souls will one day be consoled when heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss!
Have you ever wondered how blissful that in our everyday weddings when the groom meets the bride there is that joy that seems infinite accompanied by ululations? This joy seems to be incomplete until they lay their eyes on each other. This earthly wedding I will narrate it as a shadow of the heavenly union between The Bride (Church) and The Bridegroom (Christ). Ecclesiology- which is Biblical study of the Church is that it is quickened and sanctified by the Holy Spirit that is to the Bride of Christ. It is for His Church, and every individual member of the Church. What husband would take it well, if his wife should abandon him and follow after other lovers?
This weeks’ poem is from the incomparable Vivien who has written a poem for us titled ‘My Idol’. She is a Musical Worship coordinator at Open Baptist Church in Gaborone. Her singular goal in life is to learn what pleases the Lord and to do that smile emoticon. It’s an exercise in faith, without which it is impossible to please Him.
HE IS…. He is, He was, He will be
He lives, He reigns, He still sees
He is the logarithm that pierces through the chasm
He is the radiance of God’s glory
The beginning and end of Jehovah’s story
He is the embodiment of Philosophy
He is the creator of Psychology To this day
He has no contemporary
He cannot abide by those that reason diagonally
He is no mere Visionary, Missionary He is the originator of Sociology
