Advice for Church elders!

Feed the flock of God!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi
"Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away" 1 Peter 5:2 - 4 NKJV

Church elders, (servants of God) are believers eager to serve God, and willingly, they lead other believers by their good example, not for dishonest gain.

Soon "the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away" 1 Peter 5:4. But there conditions for you, i.e., if you’ve served him well.

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour" 1 Peter 5:8. Be careful for he will indeed attempt to attack you, and sometimes he succeeds, but when he attacks, Trust the Lord; and stand firm.

Trust the Lord; for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.

May the God of all grace, "who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen" 1 Peter 5:10-11.

God bless,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server.You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server.But listen to this before you do;"Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."" Luke 10:38-42.Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubled ab…

Your fellowship in the gospel

As we fellowship with each other as believers, remember that our fellowship is only in the gospel. We love the brotherhood with the affection of Jesus Christ only, nothing more.Apostle Paul says, "And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God," Philippians 1:9-11.So, as you fellowship with other believers, always remember that your job as a Christian is to ensure the progress of others and joy of faith, and to defend the gospel. The Apostle says, "Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so...that you may stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel." Philippians 1:27.Be like-minded; help each other, work together with one heart, be warm-h…

Be filled with all the fullness of God

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,Ephesians 1:3.Did you know, that He chose us in Christ, according to the good pleasure of His will, and made us accepted in the Beloved? And "predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself," Ephesians 1:5. Now because we’re sons, He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places. You don’t find that anywhere my friend, except in Christ.Now, my prayer for you is that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you also the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, that you may understand the mystery of His will, the mystery of Christ, that He purposed in himself to gather together in one all things in Christ, He has put all things under His feet, both which are in heaven and which are on earth, and we ourselves also have our redemption through His blood. We were gentiles,…
