The Master Key

THE MASTER KEY

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life;
no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

John 14:6 NASB

I have a master key to the church.  My key can work in any lock.  A staff person who works here at the church may have a key to their own office, or even to the section of the building that their office is in.  But they are limited in which doors they can open.  Yet because I have a master key, I can go anywhere in the church that I want to go.

A lot of us are not getting everywhere we need to go because we don’t have the master key.  We’ve got keys for certain rooms.   We come to church, hear a sermon, and receive a truth, so we have a key for a certain room in our Christian lives.  What you must understand, however, is that the key to the Christian life for the church of Jesus Christ, for your home and your communities is, in fact, Jesus Christ as Lord and Master.  The ability to live victoriously and advance God’s kingdom agenda on earth comes through this unique master key called the lordship of Christ.

Only as the lordship of Jesus Christ is reflected through you individually and through His people corporately will the world experience the rule of God as the Creator intended it to be.

When and how are you learning the truths of God’s Word? Why is God’s power limited for those who limit their obedience? In what areas of your life have you limited your obedience to God’s Word?

Lord, I want our world to experience Your power and rule.  Help me
to start with me.  Help me to continually abide with Christ and align my life
under Him.  Then enable me to model that lifestyle to those around me so that
each of us can demonstrate the power that comes when we are connected to You.
Amen.

1:1 with Make up artist Marienette Mario

Taste’s Take
Given the way Cameroon is today, it is  very difficult to get a job, especially a government job, people have been forced to find different means of making ends meet. People have started to look more at the media and entertainment industry or into fields of employment which would have been unthinkable in the past. Because the entertainment business in Cameroon is growing, people have become creative in fields associated with it.

The media and entertainment industry is opening careers which were not looked as serious profession in the past. Jobs like being a make-up artist is an example. This is because private TV stations and private Media houses are helping to create job for make-up artist, beauty consultance, hairstylist, seamtress, fashion models, actors, actress, graphic designers e.t.c. The irony about this is that, most of those in this fields are high school and university graduates who came out with degrees in an entirely different field.

I had the privilege to do an interview with one of Cameroon’s make-up artist. She’s worked with several famous models, singer, actors and actresses in #237. Continue reading

She Tells Her Grandma That She’s Just Been Cheated On So Grandma Tells Her To Do This

This is a good lesson for all of us, no matter what stage of life you’re in. You’ll see what I mean.


A young woman went to her grandmother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her – her husband had cheated on her and she was devastated. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as soon as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her grandmother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl.

Turning to her granddaughter, she asked, ‘Tell me what you see.’

‘Carrots, eggs, and coffee,’ she replied.

Her grandmother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The grandmother then asked the granddaughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.

Finally, the grandmother asked the granddaughter to sip the coffee. The granddaughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The granddaughter then asked, ‘What does it mean, grandmother?’

Her grandmother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

“Which are you?” she asked her granddaughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity? Do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain.. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level?

How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?


May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can’t go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so at the end, you’re the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

May we all be like the COFFEE.
