Just a regular guy who wants to make Heaven


So who is this guy? you may ask.
A preacher, pastor, religious bigot, a die hard fanatic? naa...
Non of these.

I'm just a regular guy who is obsessed with the belief that there
is a Heaven...and wants to get there at all cost.

But who, unfortunately comes loaded with all the faults of man.
Faults, he wondered if he can have, and still make it to Heaven.
He therefore, had to clarify certain issues within himself.

* Are we here by accident?
* Can life just be about living on earth for twenty, forty,maybe
eighty years and thats it. Nothing more?
* Is there really a God?
* Is there a Heaven?
* Can he possess just a little of these faults and still make it to
* Is there an easy way?

After contemplating on these and many other questions for
some time, and eventually carrying out some diligent research,
he came to a conclusion.

That everything indeed lies in his hands. That there is a Heaven
and he can make it there, only  if he treads the path that leads
there. It is in his power to do so, given to him by his Creator, The

But unfortunately, alas, he can also use this power, and freedom
to tread another path. The path that leads in a different
direction, one eternal damnation.

So he made a choice.

Whom do you serve

my name is Oghenero.

I intend to use this medium to briefly discuss something most
important to me... "the worship of God".

Here, I'm not referring to singing and dancing or attending one
religious service or the other, no, but rather, to how we live our
lives daily. You and I. In our interactions with each other; in
what we say, what we do and what we think. These are the
things that really count in the worship of God. Singing, dancing
and church attendance only become relevant when we have the
genuine desire to serve God, and thus constantly live in the
endeavour to do His Will at all times. It is this constant urge to
do the Will of God at every moment that place you as His child
who worships Him in Truth and in Spirit. Church hours of
worship then make meaning, because already you bow down to
God in your your will.

As we go along on this blog, you will always be confronted with
one question. Whom do you really serve?

Now, what you may say in response to this question is not really
so important. In fact, what is more important than what you may
say, is what you actually do. What do I mean by this? Well, let
me put it this way. What I may claim to do, and what I actually
do, may not necessarily be the same thing.

For instance I may claim to serve God, but....If I serve God,
it is His Will I'll do, which can only be good. If on the other
hand, I serve the darkness or the devil or satan or lucifer, it is
his will I'll do instead, which can only be evil.

And what things fall under the category of evil?
Hatred, envy, jealousy, avarice, adultery, fornication, lying,
gossiping, tanishing the image of others and so many other evils.
There are so many, you only need to desire to genuinly serve God
and you'll be clear on what constitutes evil.

So, by implication therefore, you either serve God or you serve 
the darkness, never both. You cannot serve two masters at the 
same time. Your activities show you whom you serve. There is no
scheming in this matter. Good activities; you serve God. Bad
activities; you serve satan. No more no less.

Hence I ask your Spirit,

whom do you serve?
