  3. Emeasoba George:

    You shouldn't because of anybody right here or out there rush into marriage or any other relationship. Yes! because, if you dare to rush into marriage or any other relationship, you are most likely to rush out of it even sooner than you expect it.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    Everything that you've got already/whatever that you will get subsequently came/will come by grace but with faith. Oh! yes, it's never by your might/intelligence. Moreover, God's grace is meant to work out wonders/goodies for you. But, mind you not without faith. I mean, grace and faith are pari-passu i.e. they go/work hand in hand. Yes, you can't receive God's grace without faith and until you're faithful God's grace won't abound in/with you period.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Grace of God in a nutshell, is God doing for us what we can never do for ourselves and what we don't deserve for life. I mean, what God's grace does for us is, what we can't do for ourselves and not at all what we can do for ourselves. Now, that's why you do have weaknesses but God is ever strong. Moreover, you do have shortcomings, but God's grace does overtake them. You equally fail or fall sometimes or rather you are sometimes unfaithful. But, God is infallible and ever faithful unlike you. Anyway, I don't know about you. I personally really need more and more grace. Until God's grace becomes abundant and fully noticeable in my life or rather, until I'm saved wholly by his grace. In case you don't know, no human has been saved and no human will be saved eventually by his or her works. Yes! you heard me right, we all are meant to be saved by God's grace and nothing more or less.
