Color in Wilderness


By: Emeka Anslem

Okay, I do, I read books. But all I get are motivations, motivations that only lead halfway. People are tired of being motivated, they want to have a true experience with the things they read.
I believe the era of “fleshy” knowledge has come; knowledge that can instantly be felt, and immediately compel you to do the needful. I get upset when I hear people make remarks like “Wow, Anslem, I heard a powerful quote today…”. They heard powerful quotes, and even powerful teachings, but there just wasn’t enough power in those quotes to transform their lives. What is the use of a powerful quote that has no powerful effect on my life?


“Hmm… hmm… hmm…, that’s really powerful”, but that’s where it ends.
I believe God applied this principle when He sent His only begotten Son to die for the world. He had sent powerful words to His people through prophets and kings, but those powerful words only brought little results. And then He sent the “fleshed” word, Jesus Himself. John 1:14 says that “the Word was made flesh, and it dwelt among us”. It is the “fleshed” word that has prospered Christianity, even till this day.
