CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A MYSTERY RELIGION

Did you know, during and after Jesus’ time, historically, there were religions, apart from Judaism, that could have been alternatives to Christianity due to their similarities?

They were mostly called ‘mystery religions’ because they were shrouded in secrecy and mysteries. To have an idea of how it offers salvation and route to better life, you must be an initiate.

How do you say, ‘I love you?’ in your language?

Okay, this is me rambling this morning.

I got on my laptop and came here, to my blog. To be honest, I don’t have anything in mind. I’m sure it will come to me sha.

While we wait, we are out of our dorms cause of COVID disinfectant. Like we used to say, our dorms are being ‘fogged’. On my left, some students are playing a card game. Two are in front of me pressing their phones. Behind me one is eating. It’s actually a very relaxed atmosphere – good for rambling.

BEING A PASTOR’S WIFE: 10 Key Realities (Episode II)

  1. FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE

The second most key reality a pastor’s wife must quickly adjust to is to being financially independent, especially when your husband is a full-time pastor. His income, as it is, would not always be his alone. Note, the ministry’s money is not part of your husband’s income. What is of the Lord belongs to the Lord. It is for the work of God and the things of God.

Your husband’s money is his allowance or salary and if he has other business aside ministry work, all income from them is his own. Also, gifts from members of the church personally to him belongs to your husband. Unless you want to corrupt the grace of God in your lives, the ministry’s money is not yours!

BEING A PASTOR’S WIFE: Key Realities (Mary Lawal)

You are probably not married yet, nor do you have a fiancé who is a pastor (yet). Because of this, you would probably want to stop reading the moment you saw the title. Hold on.

Ask yourself, “If you met your 15-year-old self right now, what would you tell her?” Take a minute. Tick! Tock! Tick! Tock! Done? Good! In that same vein, think about this, wouldn’t you rather know today what you might need tomorrow? Put this way, would you rather have and not need it yet than not have it till you need it?
