The Power of Law

What is law? To define law, first, you must understand that there are different forms of law. There are ritual laws, natural laws, and legislative laws. If you are going to define law, don’t define it loosely.

Forms of Law

Ritual laws are temporary laws. They are laws that people obey when natural laws seem to be defective. For instance, it’s a natural law that lungs are used to breathe, and the use of a ventilator is a ritual law because the ventilator is temporary, and the lung is permanent.

Natural laws are permanent laws. They are divine laws. For instance, it’s a natural law for fish to live in water. Fish can never say it has outgrown water. The day a fish stops living in water, is the day it dies. Natural laws have come to say whether you like it or not. Gay and lesbianism are like fish saying I have outgrown water which consequence is death (not just physical death, but spiritual death).

Legislative laws are the laws enacted by governments, they are government policies that are meant to protect a nation, well, sometimes they destroy it – due to bad policies.

Why do people hate law?

They see laws as bondage, as being under control. So, they want to be free. Free from what? If you leave your country because of the laws to stay in another country, you are going to face another set of laws.

You do not obey laws to become a citizen, you obey laws because you are already a citizen. For instance, you do not obey the traffic light to become a citizen of your country, you obey it because you are already a citizen. Likewise, you obey scriptural laws (which are also supernatural laws) because you are a citizen of the kingdom.

Every scriptural law is for our benefit (both old and new testament laws). The ten commandments are permanent laws. That’s why every constitution on earth is against stealing and killing. The law of seedtime and harvest is for your profit, it doesn’t add anything to God. If you are not a giver you cannot prosper. God has not commanded us to grieve us but to bless us, For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous 1 John.5:3. Scriptural laws are not for our punishment, they are for our polishment.

Benefits of Law

Orderliness. Law is good. Where there is no law, there is disorder. Where there is law, there is peace.

Protection. Laws are meant to protect us. For instance, the traffic light is meant to protect us from accidents. Scriptural laws are meant to secure our destiny.

Natural laws are permanent. Ritual laws are not reliable because they offer temporal solutions but natural can be trusted because they provide permanent solutions. For instance, the lung provides a permanent solution to the need to breathe while the ventilator offers a temporal solution.

Law versus grace

Some preachers encourage grace over laws. The sad thing is that grace has become a license for sin. Those who hold this view, argue that they do not want to be controlled by legalism. The word legalism is not bad as it has been portrayed, ask the Lawyers.

To conclude

I don’t believe life is difficult. If you can understand the laws of the scripture and obey them, success would be very cheap. Men should love their wives and women should submit to their husbands (Ephesians.5:22&25), it’s a permanent law. You will never have peaceful marriage unless you and your spouse obey this law.

Lawlessness is a risk. To be lawless is to be lifeless. Set boundaries around your life. Don’t hate the law. Create law. Obey law.

Leadership Is Not Leading People

Leadership Is Not Leading People

There are always many workers than leaders because leadership is expensive. Leadership is taking the lead and not leading people (as erroneously perceived). It’s a sacrifice. To become a leader, you must be stretched and go extra miles to accomplish a specific task. Whether you’re black or white, yellow or brown; a man or woman, short or tall, if you could pay the price, the world would begin to celebrate you.

Leadership isn’t ruling people but serving people. it can’t be imposed but conferred. Your quality input and excellence in your output in a specific field makes people refer to you as their leader. People used to think that politicians are the only leaders we have while this isn’t true, there are also leaders in every field. If some politicians receive some hand shakes from Bill Gate, it would go into their CV’S.

We serve our way to the top. David was in service when he was called to the throne. Joseph served his way to the top. Jesus served his way up to decoration. Be empowered by the spirit of servant hood.

Leadership is setting the pace, finding the path and blazing the trail. It’s setting examples for others to follow. Show me a man who is diligent in his business, you have find he who is the leader. Life is business! Leaders are those who go to work and actually work (it demands high level discipline). They are managers of self, time, energy and resources (If the TV box is stealing your time, it’s stealing your destiny. Go to hell! Say to that TV box)

When God created Adam, He gave him a managerial role to play (Gen.2:15). The require skill is management skill, you need to be trained for it. You need quality information about financial, human and material resources. Understanding equals outstanding anywhere, anyday, anytime. Leaders are thinkers. Leadership demands high level of intellectual cost. People who approach a subject matter with a common sense end up with a common result and that is why they are called common men (uncommon approach results into uncommon results). You need to approach life with a special knowledge by doing thorough findings on how it actually works. Then by applying the acquired knowledge . Wisdom is applied knowledge. Jesus the wisdom itself says,

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man which built his house upon a rock: [25] And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock (Mat.7:24-25)

Leadership is expensive and that is why we have few leaders but many workers. We will always have plenty workers than leaders across generations. It demands high level 4d’s – decision, determination, dedication and discipline – to emerge as a leader. …….but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits ( Daniel 11:32). Exploits is expensive.

A comfort zone is a danger zone. There are no record breakers in their comfort zones. Breaking records require stretching out. Nothing becomes extraordinary on its own, it’s our extraordinary efforts that make it so. If everyone reading this would work at it, imagine how many leaders we would be having. A leader is not the one who is leading people but the one who is taking the lead in every field of life.

[12] Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; [13] And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed (Hebrews 12:12 -13).
