Devote yourself to the ministry of the word!

When a church grows, so do problems also, they come in all shapes and sizes, entirely because we come to the faith from different social backgrounds.

Now, it’s a challenging job to be a servant of God, that if one is not careful he end up serving tables, rather than spending time on prayer, preaching, teaching, or on the ministry of the word he’s been called to do. Peter said, "we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word" Acts 6:4.

Yesterday I released an article on what that means, and that we should preach about, that God brought Jesus back to life again, after he was killed by hanging on a cross, but then, with mighty power, God exalted him to be a Prince and Saviour, so that people would have an opportunity for repentance, and for their sins to be forgiven. "And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him" Acts 5:32.

I said God counted us worthy, we who are in the ministry of the word, that we should preach to the people this gospel, and preaching everyday is grace, or enablement. He wants us to meet everyday if we can and wherever possible, teaching and preaching Jesus Christ. You cannot say I have heard him enough!

"And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith" Acts 6:7.

Priests are the worse ones in serving tables, but here when they heard this word, a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith. Leave others for administering a feeding program, but thou man of God no excuse, that you should leave the word of God, and serve tables.

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…

The Lord’s Supper - Do this in remembrance of Me

Jesus prepared for the passover with his disciples, and then "He said to them, "With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God." Luke 22:15-16He would no longer eat of it because He’s the Fulfilment of the Passover.The Passover lamb was prepared/ killed a day before The Passover Feast, a day Jews commemorate their deliverance from slavery in Egypt. On Passover, Jews also celebrate the birth of the Jewish nation after being freed by God from captivity.Jesus is the fulfilment of the Passover. He is the Lamb of God, sacrificed to set us free from bondage to sin (John 1:29; Psalm 22; Isaiah 53). The blood of Jesus covers and protects us, and his body was broken to free us from eternal death (1 Corinthians 5:7).In the Jewish tradition, a hymn of praise known as the Hallel is sung during the Passover Seder. In it is Psalm 118:22, speaking of the Messiah:…
