– Richard Jordan
Grace is simply, a free and unmerited favour from God. Permit me to tell you that, grace is synonymous with destiny. In the sense that, it's also a God-given gift and which is meant to be realized and utilized within a given period of time just like destiny otherwise, it will surely elapse/decline/subside or even lost outrightly. Oh! Yes, God's grace is just for a while and never forever. So, you've got to acknowledge/appreciate/utilize/maximize it (God's grace) to the fullest. Unless you want it to be withdrawn/taken away from you sooner than you even expect it. And mind you, if/when God's grace is taken away/withdrawn from you. Believe me or don't, you're as good as done for, until it's restored back to you. Because, living without God's grace is like trying to live/survive without God himself. And I guess, you know what that entails don't you?
– 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.
– Emeasoba George

Great speeches have always had great soundbites. The problem now is that the young technicians who put together speeches are paying attention only to the soundbite, not to the text as a whole, not realizing that all great soundbites happen by accident, which is to say, all great soundbites are yielded up inevitably, as part of the natural expression of the text. They are part of the tapestry, they aren't a little flower somebody sewed on.
