Synopsis and Bio of the new book

Everyone is greatness material. We all are endowed with unlimited potential. Greatness is chained within us waiting to be unleashed. Unfortunately, in every generation, very few unchain their greatness. The overwhelming majority fails to attain any level of greatness at all.

In ‘Unchain Your Greatness’, the author recognized the four stages the great ones from diverse cultures and generations passed through to achieve their inherent greatness. Those who unchained their greatness were like everyone else except that they followed four straightforward steps (the 4 E’s). They Explored, Enacted, Endured, and Emancipated their greatness to the fullest.

The great ones explored and discovered what predisposed them to manifest greatness. They took bold actions based on their findings. Those who attained greatness also faced numerous obstacles as a result of taking massive actions and pursuing the road to greatness. However, they endured, outlasted continual setbacks, emptied themselves, and ultimately emancipated the greatness shackled within and left enduring legacies.

On top of providing the model the great ones adopted to unchain their greatness to the fullest, the book narrates the stories of great men and women from different religions, age-groups, and fields to show you the attitude and mindset they had as they progressed through these four simple phases. It also shares with you what the great ones discovered, the actions they took, the challenges they overcame, and the legacies they left because they unchained their greatness to the fullest.

Jesus, the BAR!

Jesus, the BAR!

Billions walked on this planet. A few pleased God. These had set a bar for us to follow suit.

However, Jesus didn’t set a bar. He Himself was the BAR.

He came to show us what was in store for the first Adam and what we missed as Adam’s children because of his disobedience- a walk devoid of love!

Jesus showed up denying Himself and His divinity wearing flesh to walk among us humans and redeem us from the consequences of Adam’s loveless journey. Not only that, He showed us the way to restore ourselves back to our former glory before fall.

Thank God, we are redeemed. We are restored back to our former greatness. Our job is to emulate Jesus’ lifestyle and walk like He walked in this planet.

Jesus showed unconditional obedience to His Father and demonstrated love even to those who hated and killed Him in the flesh. That is what we all should do if our desire is to restore ourselves back to our former glory before the fall. Simple! But, it’s not easy as it seems.

That is the BAR. That is the WAY. That is the Life. That is the only way to get redeemed and restored to the former glory of humanity before the fall…

Becoming Love (1-min video clip)

In this 1- Minute of Power with Mr. Restorer, the founder of AHM highlighted the importance of love to succeed in the Kingdom of God. The love we show to God is through unconditional obedience. Becoming love also takes to love even those who hate and despise us. Unfortunately, many die before they even fully understand the place of love for fulfillment. A few began that journey toward becoming love but unable to fully finish the race in becoming love. You and I have a chance to begin that journey, with the help of the Holy Spirit, and finish it by becoming like God, becoming love.

Becoming a values-driven person like Jesus

“… Without values, we probably are swayed by anything and anyone. We’re like a ship without a compass- without a clear direction and not sure whether it reaches its destination. Once you have values, on the other hand, it is easier to make the right decision that propels you forward. When you have core values in place, you easily know what to say or not to say or what to do or not to do…” Page 163, The Highest Level of Greatness
 
Jesus’ clarity and commitment to His values attributed to His success here on earth more than 2 thousand years ago. According to His certain values, there were times He preferred to be silent, withdraw, and reserved. Other times, when His values were violated, He was confrontational.
 
He drove out those who were buying and selling from the Temple (Matthew 21: 12), called the hypocrites names 🙂 For instance, “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.” (Matthew 23: 27) There were also times He showed compassion to forgive, heal, and embrace the unforgivable, the untouchables, and the trespassers. His words and actions were dictated by His values such as LOVE, Compassion, Loyalty, and Service…
 
Do you know your values? Do they dictate your words, behaviors, and actions? How far can you go to promote and/or protect your values?
 
Remember, no one became great without tapping into the power of values, without showing unwavering commitment to his/her values.
 
Yes, you’re greatness material. Becoming great is your birthright. God vowed to make Abraham’s name great (Genesis 12: 1). You’re the seed of Abraham through Christ (Galatians 3: 29). You are an heir of Abraham’s blessings. You can become great in your own way, impact the world, fulfill your assignment here on earth during your lifetime, and leave a legacy the next generations will benefit from. But, you cannot achieve these without becoming a values-driven person.
 
To learn more about the power of values, the benefits of becoming a values-driven person, the stories of those values-driven great ones, you should read the book ‘The Highest Level of Greatness’

Taking the High Road all the time (1- min video clip)

In this 1-minute of Power, Mr. Restorer talked about taking the High Road all the time.

It’s part of life. It happens to all. You’re not exceptional. As you go out to unleash your greatness, serve the world, some people may do so many things against you. They may hate, hurt, manipulate, despise, belittle, and cheat you.

In all these circumstances, forgive, forget, and take the High Road.

Don’t allow anyone to rent your heart. Free your heart.

You cannot remain in love without forgiving. You cannot advance in life, both in the temporal and spiritual worlds without loving.

Thus, forgive, forget, and take the High Road all the time…

Yeharerwerk Gashaw- former model and actor- Light and salt to the world

If in case you haven’t watched the interview of Yeharerwerk Gashaw with the host of Voice of America’s Straight Talk Africa, check it out. Her testimony about how God has been helping her shine in her illustrious career as the first black international model, actor, and how Jesus Christ is the pillar of her life caught my attention and thought sharing the video link with you.

She is from my hometown, Harar, but I’m sharing her interview not because both of us came from that part of the world 🙂

I’m always impressed by Christians like her who are light and salt to the world (Matthew 5: 13 – 16).

Many Christians have lost sight of why they are here on earth at this time and in this generation.

Of course, the overwhelming majority in the world over depend on their natural abilities to serve the world. Though their intention is admirable and many have done great things by themselves alone, they could accomplish more and reach many lives if they tap into their birthright of being the children of the Most High; if they allow God to work with them. Well, this theme is not the main concern of mine as I share this video link. It requires another full article to talk about it 🙂 I’m more concerned about those who claim to be the sons and daughters of God who just settled for warming the pews every Sunday within the four walls of the church alone. What a disappointment to the Lord who wasn’t religious, who was out in the world where people were hurting.

The litmus paper of being the true follower of Jesus is being a change agent and serving the world based on one’s purpose and using one’s gifting and talents.

That is why I’m touched by the testimony of Yeharerwerk. Rather than sitting on the sidelines and criticising and blaming the world, she rolled her sleeves up and began serving where she felt God called her.

Her story also touched me because our ministry aims at raising Christians (and also anyone who is interested) who dare to step into the world and be light and salt. These kinds of Christians aren’t religious and they don’t condemn the world around them and act self-righteous. They love the world because the Father so loved the world, He sent His only begotten Son (John 3: 16). They serve the world according to His calling since they know that that is how they will be judged; not because they know tones of scriptures, dressed in certain ways, and due to the fact that they are members of a certain denomination. Their fulfillment is based on discovering, and pursuing their purpose, the very reason why He released them into this gigantic and finely tuned universe. They are obedient to His calling as they said yes to His assignment in their generation. They are all in… What about you?

Remember, even Jesus who had all kinds of excuses to depend on His abilities said: “It is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.” (John 14: 10) That means, your age, gender, educational background, eloquence, and so on doesn’t matter that much. What is expected from you is the willingness and dedication to be His vessel in the area where He called you. Then, have faith in the one who dwells in you since He is capable to do the work by Himself. Of course, whatever you do, don’t do it because it attracts attention, fame, and wealth. Do it because you LOVE Him. If you love Him, you obey Him (John 14: 15). There is no greater obedience than responding to the reason of your existence- the very reason why He released you to this world at this time. Of course, if you Love Him, you love even your enemies. And, the best expression of love is serving others according to your calling and using your gift and talents.

As you discover and pursue your purpose in life to serve the world around you and beyond, remember, we’re your partners. Feel free to reach out if you may have any question or need some tips in this regard…

If you’re a lover, you won’t taste death, burning, drowning, and other destructions

 All commandments, laws, and prophecies hang on love (Matt 22: 40). Love is the Supreme Law that defines God. Love is that one single trait that fully describes God. Actually, love makes God God. It explains who God was, is, and will be in eternity.
We cannot fully understand God, His workings, and His heart desires unless we comprehend the true meaning of love, which by the way, may take us years, decades, if not the entire eternity. We cannot approach Him boldly and claim our sonship and daughtership until we fully comprehend His love for us. We cannot be translated from being mere servants to sons and daughters. Thus, love is the key to know, fellowship, and serve the Most High. That is another topic by itself that let me stop it here for now. I’ll come back to talk more about this another time. Stay tuned!
For now, what happens if you LOVE Him? Well, He loves you back. However, He already loved you whether you love Him back or not. His love is unconditional. Your loving Him back, nonetheless, provokes some perks. Here are a few perks that He has already bestowed on those who loved Him unconditionally. He won’t allow you to taste death. He won’t let fire consumes you. He’ll not permit water to drown you. He won’t let lions eat you alive. He’ll not permit the devil to devour you. God won’t give you away to your enemies to slaughter you.
Loving God alone, however, isn’t complete. To enjoy the full rewards of becoming a true lover of divinity, we need to love what he loves.
 
By the way, when you LOVE God, you also love your enemies as well. That is the litmus test.
 
Why? If you love Him unconditionally, you love everything He loves regardless of whether His loved ones love you or not.
 
We know that God Himself is love and most importantly loved the whole world- not just only us, our family, ethnicity, race, religious group, nation. He loved and still loves each one of His images, each of His children.
 
God so LOVED the world (John 3: 16) that He gave His only begotten Son.
 
If we claim that we love Him unconditionally, we have to show that affection not by mere words but by first loving God, and then all humanity.
 
When we lack love toward Him, we continue to struggle to love others, especially those that are hard ‘to love’.
 
The good news is that we have a helper. The true lover of God and the whole world, Jesus Christ, promised that the Spirit of Truth would guide us into all truth (John 16: 13). Love is the supreme truth that we must know now while we are here on earth, not when we go to heaven. There, we don’t need it. If we’re willing now, the Helper is ready to lead us to all truth including the truth about love.
Be cheerful. This Helper is ALL KNOWING. Most importantly, He is on our side. Let’s walk with Him. This journey demands His help and empowerment. We cannot fully comprehend what unconditional love means without His help. We cannot fully embody love and manifest it without His empowerment. I know; it’s a tough journey but worth taking. Let’s take it if you have not yet…
 
Where are you on this journey? Are you a student of love like I’m? Are you open to humble, empty yourself, and willing to begin anew to comprehend and then manifest love? Don’t forget that this journey ends with glory. It eventually translates you from mere human being to the likeness of Christ? 

I’ll continue to write on this subject.

The world is desperately looking for values-driven leaders

Those of us who strongly believe that we’re the images of God;
Those of us who believe in the Kingdom of God;
Those of us who follow Jesus Christ; we don’t have any other choice than to lead a values-driven lifestyle.
 
We cannot become light and salt and serve the world without becoming men and women of principles.
 
We’ll never reflect His image;
We’ll never impact the world;
We’ll never be trusted in His Kingdom;
We’ll never be His companions like Abraham and others been; without being values-driven.
 
We may fake it in the world. The world may not know it at all.
 
In the Kingdom, we cannot fake it.
 
If we desire to be great like those who pleased the divine and enjoyed His favor and empowerment, we need to embrace those values Jesus did. He was a values-driven leader. He embraced and demonstrated unwavering commitment toward His values- the Kingdom’s values. He actually paid the ultimate price to live up to the expectations of His values.
 
If we’re His followers, we should follow His example. We should adopt His values and demonstrate unwavering commitment. We should lead like Him.
 
More than ever the world needs exemplary leaders who are willing to lead a values-driven lifestyle, leaders who are able to create and lead values-driven organizations.
 
The excerpt below is taken from my upcoming book, which will be published very soon:
“… Except our organization is values-driven, our chance to remain competitive in our industry is nil. Even though we may be able to compete, we cannot outshine and outlast our competitors without creating and leading a values-driven organization. More than any single factor, the lack of values-driven leaders threatens the survival and advancement of a given community, organization, society, and humanity at large. In short, we- individually and collectively, are helpless without embracing and demonstrating unwavering commitment toward our own and universal values…” Stay tuned!

Are you in love or out of love?

Are you in love or out of love?

I’m talking about the God kind of love. God is love, we all know that. If someone asks you ‘Are you in love with God?’ Your answer most likely be a resounding YES. That is great!

It is easier to love God 🙂 We all may think that we love Him while we may be out of love. John made this fundamental statement about loving God, “If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.” (1 John 4:20)

We need to remind ourselves of this fundamental truth about loving God on a consistent basis. Otherwise, we may easily go out of love without even know it. When we are out of love, we are also out of the presence of God so easily by doing some seemingly harmless things against God’s own images, fellow human beings. Love doesn’t manipulate. It doesn’t hate. It doesn’t harm others. What so ever may be the reason (s) you use to justify these things, you’re out of love when you employ anyone of these methods against the images of God. Are you in love or out of love? We need to make this reality check on a daily basis…

When we are out of love, we are also out of the presence of God. We can easily lose the presence of God by doing some seemingly harmless things against God’s own images- fellow human beings. Love doesn’t manipulate. It doesn’t hate. It doesn’t harm others. What so ever may be the reason (s) you use to justify these things, you’re out of love when you employ anyone of these methods against the images of God. Are you in love or out of love? We need to make this reality check on a daily basis…

Let me just pick a couple of actions that seem harmless but sure prone us to be out of love, and in turn, out of the presence of God. Love doesn’t manipulate. It doesn’t hate. It doesn’t harm others.

What so ever may be the reason (s) you use to justify these things, you’re out of love when you employ anyone of these methods against the images of God.

Are you in love or out of love? We need to conduct this reality check on a daily basis…
