Gratitude is Generosity

Pst. Kenny Folarin 1st Thess 5:18In everything give thanks. We have said that you can not miss it by giving thanks and that gratitude is a function of focus. However bad you may think your situation is, you can always find something to be grateful for. When we take for granted what God has done for us, who God is in our lives, we lose our sense of value. When positive things happen consistently and they become normal to us...

Gratitude: Say Thank You

Pastor Sam Adeyemi 1st Thess. 5:18If we're finding it difficult to say "thank you" to people that we can see, just imagine how many "Thank Yous" we owe God. What breeds lack of gratitude? Entitlement! We take so much for granted. Our text encourages us to be grateful. You can complain that roses, as beautiful as they are, have thorns or you can be grateful that the thorns has some beautiful roses in them. Gratitude is an attitude. It's a function of...

Staying Power (4)

Pastor Sam Adeyemi Galatians 6:9Our emphasis has been on the fact that we cannot see the fulfillment of God's promises without staying power. Hebrews 10:35-36 shows how we need confidence and endurance. To develop staying power continued;6. Don't compromise your faith in God. Hold on strong to your values as a Christian. Daniel 3:15-18 we see that if you're going to last till you see the fulfillment of God's promises we need to hold some deep conviction. KnowGod for yourself and know...

Staying Power (3)

Pastor Sam Adeyemi Hebrews 6:12It is Faith and Patience. As a Christian, we have explored the subject of Faith. We have defined it, we have explained it, we have explored it. That's, however, only one leg of the table. There's another leg...

Staying Power: Part 2

Pastor Sam Adeyemi Galatians 6:9Last week we established that you cannot see the fulfillment of God in your life without having staying power. This is because there are conditions to receiving the fulfillment of God's promise as seen in Galatians 6:9. In verse 7, we see that sowing is the well-doing. Now we know that words are seeds, actions are seeds, serving in somebody's organisation is a seed that would be harvested when you start  your own. The way you're treating your...

The Holy Spirit and Prayers

Pastor Kenny Folarin Romans 8:26Prayer is a spiritual exercise and our human ability is incapable of this engagement. God doesn't have a physical ear but He has the capacity to hear your thoughts and your words because He is a Spirit as seen in John 4:24. Prayer is the interaction of the spirit, soul and body of a man with the Spirit of God. Prayer is spirit communicating with spirit. This is why we have not put so much emphasis on...

Prayer: Communication with God Part (3)

Matthew 6:7-13 Pastor Kenny FolarinWe have established a fact that prayer is communication with God, it is based on our  relationship with Him.  It is a conversation, an interaction between two people. This is what God wants from everyone of us. In Prov. 16:8 we see that God likes to hear our voices and He wants us to cultivate a relationship with Him. God doesn't want us to turn Him into a money-making machine; we approach Him only when we need...

Prayer: Communication with God (2)

Matthew 6:7-13 Pastor Sam Adeyemi When you have two kids, they can't be the same. The way they communicate with you would be according to their personalities. The God that created us with diversity Himself, does not expect every single person to pray exactly the same way! When two people are in a relationship, they love each other and desire to be in each other's presence when they're not together. That should be the starting point for a Christian. Do you desire...

Sharing The Goodnews (2)

Pastor Kenny Folarin 2 Cor. 5:13-15 The most beautiful thing we can ever experience in our life is to see a Human being have an encounter with Jesus Christ, to break free from the control of sin and Satan and to experience total transformation in their lives. As believers our greatest influence would be the influence that you'd have on other people, bringing them to God and bringing them into the Kingdom of God. Nothing can be compared to God using you...

SHARING THE GOODNEWS

Pastor Sam Adeyemi 2 Cor. 5:13-15Our focus for this month is on Soul-Winning. The need for us to share the good news of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and of the provision of forgiveness of sin and freedom from sin.  In the passage above, some people thought that Paul was behaving crazy because he was passionately committed his life to the sharing of the good news. In Acts 26, Paul was preaching to a king and at some point the...
