THE GREATEST QUALIFICATION?
Some people consider qualifications earned in conventional educational institutions like primary, secondary, polytechnic or university as the best platform capable of opening doors of greatness to a man. That may be true in some respects but not necessarily so in all circumstances!
However, recent events and stories of some successful entrepreneurial gurus; business magnates; great and celebrated men and women of God as well as some inventors with little or no educational qualifications have attested to the fact that a man could attain greatness in spite of a poor performance in school.
Needless to say that success in school could enhance fortune of a man in life. Evidence also abounds of people who have built on knowledge acquired in school to become the best in their various field of endeavours. Our world has been greatly blessed with immense efforts from individuals, group of individuals, private and public organisations that have spearheaded a number of monumental inventions, discoveries and achievements. Some of these achievements have significantly improve our world.
The obvious snag on these achievements is that the skills, talents and even achievements of a man are limited. At best they are all of earthly values. For instance, where a man’s intellectual discoveries and achievement end that is where that of another man begins. Most achievements of a man after certain passage of time becomes obsolete, out of fashion, unusable and often times irrelevant.
The next important question is: what is the greatest qualification? As a man in his mid forties who has a fair knowledge and has made moderate contributions in the field of human endeavours, I am persuaded beyond doubt that the best degree or qualification a man can attain is what I called a Bachelor of Salvation through Christ (BSC). I have discovered this qualification is relevant to our earthly and heavenly aspirations: that is our goals, endeavours and achievements.
This qualification is available to all regardless of your background, race, financial status or gender. Unlike other qualifications that could take you weeks, months or years; the qualification I am recommending to you could be earned within minutes. All it requires is “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. – Romans 10:9.
Just like earthly knowledge and skills can become dormant or obsolete if not used or updated. In fact such earthly qualifications or certificates can be revoked if not utilised in accordance with practice rules; when taken for granted or abused. Similarly, a saved soul is required to jealously nurture and value his salvation otherwise it may be lost. Little wonder the Bible says we must work out our salvation with fear and trembling. (Philippians 2:12). Sin and all forms of unrighteousness are the major tools capable of causing a man to lose his Bachelor of Salvation through Christ (BSC) Degree. I pray you will not lose yours in Jesus name.
However, if you have not taken time to seek, pursue or embrace this important qualification, I earnestly urge you take immediate action now. You need this qualification to excel here on earth as well as securing a place for yourself in eternity with the Almighty God. There is no earthly qualification that is as loaded and has so much to offer. Delay is dangerous!
Take a moment to consider these infallible truth:
1. You brought nothing into this world certainly you
will take nothing with you when you die.
2. All earthly achievements are relevant to you up
unto the point of your death: once you breath
your last breath, your use of them come to an
3. let no one deceive you, all mankind will give
account of earthly activities.
4. There is no salvation in the grave. While you
still have your breath run to Jesus Christ;
genuinely confess your sins; sincerely accept
Jesus as your Lord and Saviour and amend your
ways by doing away with all forms of
5. For thousands of years since the existence of
mankind a lot of things have changed; however,
the message of the Kingdom of God has remained
constant, current, relevant and useful.
6. From generation to generation, there has been a
serious but unsuccessful attempt to distort and
obliterate the truth about God and His end-time
plan for mankind. It is important to join the
heavenly bound wagon. Don’t forget the Bible
says: But small is the gate and narrow is the road
that leads to life, and only a few find it.
(Matthews 7:14). I enjoins you to enlist yourself
among the few that will find the way to heaven.
7. Embrace the truth that has stood the test of
time. Little wonder the Bible: Then you will know
the truth, and the truth will set you free.(John
