Eternity

ETERNITY MINDED

Pastor Sam Adeyemi Eccl 3: 11 The beautiful thing for us believers is the fact that God’s word helps us to understand how our world works; how it was created, what it was created for and God’s plans and purposes for it. The earth was designed to exist forever and man was designed to live forever on it. God had a back-up plan. Something went wrong, man sinned and the earth was cursed for it and the Bible tells us in Revelations...

The Covenant (1)

Pastor  Sam Adeyemi Psalm 89:34-35 Our faith as believers is a function of a love relationship with God which exists within a context which is called a covenant. A covenant is an agreement that is legally binding. Why do we need agreement? An agreement increases the degree of certainty that the terms of a relationship will be met or that promises will be kept. In Gen 15, Abraham was in this scenario in which he needed some assurance that what God had promised...

The quest for wisdom

Proverbs 1:5 – 7 Pastor Kenny Folarin Speaking about Jesus, we learnt that He knew what to do and how to get the best result possible. Every time it was recorded that the people were astonished at the things that Jesus was doing. This tells us that wisdom takes away frustration from you. It eliminates, removes and reduces frustration from your life. Wisdom knows how to get the best result in a situation. Most of the time the challenge is, we don’t know...

Grateful for the Journey

 Pastor Nike Adeyemi Acts 7:9-14 There is a popular phrase we use in our culture within our city which is; ‘it shall end in praise’. It begs to wonder then why the end, why not praise from the beginning or in the middle or why not as we go? So are we waiting for the end; for the manifestation of our dreams before we praise God? Is this what God wants us to do and if we are waiting for the end...

Building your Self-esteem

Pastor Sam Adeyemi Numbers 13:33 Our definition of success is fulfilling God’s goals for our lives and to achieve this then, building our self-esteem is a foundational issue. Our text is an apt example from scriptures of how we see ourselves can have a phenomenal impact on our effectiveness in life. Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself. Your self-esteem is a product of your self-image and your self-image is the picture you have on the inside of yourself and this image...

The Service and Leadership Connection

Pastor Sam Adeyemi 1 Samuel 8: 10- 18 (NIV) Many that aspire to the position of leadership underestimate the pressures and temptations that come with those positions as well as weakness of human nature to handle those temptations. Some, who were critical of those who occupied leadership positions before, perform worst when they have opportunities to occupy such leadership positions. When they were outside those positions, they had assumptions which were not correct.  There are pressures and temptations that come with occupying leadership...

The Service and Greatness Connection

Pastor Sam Adeyemi Mark 10:42-45 (NIV) God gave Joseph a dream and he saw that he was destined for greatness but it took time for him to know that it is one thing for God to show you the destination of your life and it is another thing altogether to find the road that will take you to that destination. When the road showed up for Joseph it wasn’t funny. He was sold by his brothers as a slave to a foreign...

Power in the House (3)

  By Pastor Sam Adeyemi Acts 2:42-47 We’ve been discussing on the New Testament structure of ministry and we’ve zeroed in on the significant difference in the way God structured things to run in the New Testament and the way it used to be in the Old Testament; where ministry occurred mainly in the temple. In the New Testament, as soon as the Church was born on the day of Pentecost this structure evolved in Acts 2; daily in the temple and from...
