Nathaniel Bassey Pens Touching Message About Billy Graham’s Death

In the last 24 hours or so, News Media, social media and every other forms of Media have been awash with stories, captions and testimonies about this ONE LIFE. Billy Graham. Even secular News Media have spoken in such a honorable manner about this Man of God. As I read and listen closely, I’m yet to see anything that speaks about his material possessions. He hasn’t dominated global headlines because of riches and material wealth. But instead the whole of creation is standing because of the JESUS He preached so unmistakably and unambiguously, and the accompanying Life He lived. I read of Don Moen’s testimony whose Father in law was saved due to Billy’s Radio Broadcast in the 1950s. And because of that one experience changed the whole course of life of that family. One of whom is Don’s Wife. Imagine the number of Pastors saved, the Ministries Born, and the multitudes eternally saved because one man preached and lived JESUS.

I did a search on google this morning and found out the name BILLY GRAHAM was the most trending name in the World in 24 hours. Something many seek after. But something another man achieved even without seeking. But rather by seeking Christ’s kingdom and righteousness. And not just that – in the past 24 hours, there’s been so much mention of the name JESUS on secular news media and on social media because of Evangelist Graham.As I read all of these, it becomes clear what God intends our lives to be. One that dispenses the GLORY OF GOD. Paul puts it this way…. “But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume.”

‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭2:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬.

As the body of Christ world over celebrates the transition of one of her generals, this occasion leaves me with some pertinent questions. What am I preaching? And How am I living? Am I preaching and living Christ? What fragrance is my life exuding? And what fragrance would it leave behind?

It is true what Jesus said, that a man’s life does not consist of the things that He owns.

And I dare to add, “but rather, about the LIVES He touched.” WHAT A LIFE !
BILLY GRAHAM!

*MARRIED BUT NO SEX – Part 1

A Story Written By Ayodele Adeoye*

She came into the bedroom with her transparent nightgown wearing a romantic perfume. Nobody was left at the house after a long day of felicitations and congratulations on the success of their wedding. Who would have thought Sis Rose could get married after several attempts failed at the altar of disappointment and betrayal.

Sis Rose had been into 8 relationships that never led to marriage. Getting suitors was never her problem but getting to the aisle was never realistic until she met Bro Solo. Bro Solo was a well-known brother in the choir and the dream husband of every lady as he seemed to be an example of a true Christian.

Bro Femi dated her for 18 months and jilted her because she refused him sex before marriage. Bro Ifeanyi left her after a year of relationship when he went for National Youth Service Corps at Enugu where he found Sis Chinyere. Bro Austin never gave any reason for quitting their relationship of 4 months. The history of Sis Rose’s relationship journey was heartbreaking as she had dated 8 guys in 14 years.

‘Bro Solo is going to leave like others, why put in the remaining pieces of my heart?’, she thought. On her traditional wedding, she fainted twice for unbelief and shock that Bro Solo did not leave like other brothers.  It was a well-celebrated and well-attended wedding. Members of the choir and ushering team added color to the day as one of their own were the celebrants of the day.

The joy and excitement that Sis Rose was leaving singles fellowship of the church at 43 made the pastor overjoyed, so much that he made Sis Rose’s wedding one of the best since the inception of the church. Family and friends were not left out as they all created scenes to add colour to the day.

Family and friends stayed back and never wanted to leave them alone even at the late hour of the night. Sis Rose had jokingly told her friends to leave to allow them start their honeymoon and everyone laughed. ‘Madam are you driving us?’ And they laughed again. In all these Bro Solo was indifferent as to whether they left or not. Read More »

New:The 4 best smartwatches for fitness BY CHRIS ROPER

The 4 best smartwatches for fitness BY CHRIS ROPER

Wearable technology has made great strides in the last few years – just like their owners. Be it running, walking, or swimming, smartwatches make great fitness companions, and could even replace your personal trainer (though won’t be as attractive, of course).

So if you’re after visual goals to keep you motivated, or just want to record your progress towards a stronger, fitter you, a smartwatch makes it easy. There are plenty to choose from, so to help you pick the best of the bunch, we’ve put together a list of our favorites.

So read on and prepare to blitz those new year fitness goals.

Top 4 Smartwatches for fitness

1) Apple Watch Series 3

Since its launch in 2015, the Apple Watch has excited fans with its sleek design and intuitive interface. Apple Watch’s latest iteration, the Series 3, now includes an altimeter as well as GPS to track your hikes and trail runs.

Being waterproof to 50M, you can dive, surf, or swim without worrying about breaking your watch, and the heart-rate monitor tells you when to crank things up a notch. There’s also optional LTE connectivity, so you can answer calls and texts without taking your phone with you.

The intelligent tracker monitors all your activity – from biking to squats – and encourages you to complete your daily goals. And while the Series 3 isn’t cheap, starting at $399 for the LTE version, if you’ve got the spare cash it’s worth splashing out.

2) Fitbit Ionic

In 2008, Fitbit began measuring fitness activity with clip-on trackers. They then developed wristbands, and now, smartwatches. The Fitbit Ionic is their latest creation – a GPS-enabled smartwatch with a fully-integrated fitness coach.

The Ionic’s SmartTrack detects the type of activity you’re doing and adjusts settings automatically, meaning you can spend more time training and less time fiddling. It’s waterproof to 50M (like the Apple Watch) and includes a heart-rate monitor and onboard storage for your favorite songs.

There’s no LTE support, which could be a good thing if you want to stay focused, and also makes the Ionic cheaper than the Apple Watch at just $269.95.

3) Garmin Forerunner 645 Music

Garmin is well-known for its GPS navigational gear, and now they’re shaking up the wearable tech market. Designed with runners in mind, the Forerunner series measures a range of useful data, including balance, cadence, stride length, ground contact time, and more – helping improve your technique and time.

As well as a heart rate monitor, third-party apps for taxis, weather, and other info, the Forerunner 645 Music stores up to 500 songs – enough for a marathon. At $449.95 the Forerunner is the most expensive smartwatch on this list, but as a comprehensive wearable assistant for the professional athlete, it’s tough to beat.

4) Samsung Gear Sport

Samsung has delivered a range of quality smartwatches, and the Gear Sport is designed for the active, health-conscious user. It’s equipped with a heart-rate monitor, GPS, Samsung Pay (for grabbing those energy drinks before the race), and personal coaching while you work out.

The circular design gives the Gear Sport a more traditional look, and the Super AMOLED display means vibrant colors and deep blacks. The 4GB storage lets you soundtrack your run with offline Spotify playlists – handy if you don’t have your phone with you. At $249.99 it’s the cheapest smartwatch, so a great buy if you’re on a budget.

Any of these smartwatches would make a great virtual fitness coach. As they share a lot of features, choosing between them will come down to style, budget, and whether you want to take your phone with you while you train.
