Let's watch how we serve...

1. Dear singer, if you don't study the Bible, you're in the music industry, not music ministry. You'll sing nonsense and call it "gospel" like we do today.

2. Dear usher, if you don't study the Bible, you're a traffic warden. You simply maintain foot traffic in the assembly.

3. Dear Bible study leader, if you don't study the Bible, you're a public speaker, not a minister. You'll preach rubbish.

4. Dear children department group, if you don't study the Bible, you're just a social juvenile worker.

5. Dear drama group member, if you don't study the Bible, you're just doing Nollywood.

6. Dear instrumentalist and technical unit member, if you don't study the Bible, you're just a D Jay.

7. Dear Prophet, if you don't study the Bible, you're just a soothsayer. You'll be predicting Arsenal vs Leicester city, not anything relevant to God's kingdom on earth.

8. Dear Christian writer, if you don't study the Bible, you're just D. O. Fagunwa, Chinua Achebe, or the writer of "Eze goes to school." You'll write for fiction, not for the Kingdom.

9. Dear Christian motivational speaker, if you don't study the Bible, you're just a psychologist.

10. Dear church members, if you don't study the Bible, your pastor can lead you astray.

11. No matter how anointed you are, if you don't study the Bible, you're just a spiritualist, not a spiritual person.

Those who preach and teach alone aren't the only ones called by God to be rich in the Word of faith and sound doctrine. Every child of God is.

This is the reason why many are "engaged" by churches, but aren't imparted. This is why much of what some call "service" in God's household may result in futility.

How often do you attend Bible studies?

兩千年前,猶太教的文士和法利賽人都盼望著彌賽亞的到來,而當道成肉身的主耶稣來到時,他們卻成了「盼望彌賽亞歸來卻抵擋稱爲耶稣的彌賽亞」這個角色,並聯合羅馬政府將主耶稣釘在了十字架上,犯下了抵擋、亵渎聖靈的滔天大罪……究竟是什麼原因使他們如此定罪、抵擋神呢?如果末世主耶稣再次重返肉身作工說話,我們又該以什麽態度對待才不會重走法利賽人抵擋神、把神釘在十字架上的錯誤道路呢?請關注《誰把神重釘十字架了?》電影預告片,你將明白這一切!

HOW THE APOSTLES DIED.

1. Matthew
Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, Killed by a sword wound.

2. Mark
Died in Alexandria, Egypt , after being dragged by Horses through the streets until he was dead.

3. Luke
Was hanged in Greece as a result of his tremendous Preaching to the lost.

4. John
Faced martyrdom when he was boiled in huge Basin of boiling oil during a wave of persecution In Rome. However, he was miraculously delivered From death.
John was then sentenced to the mines on the prison Island of Patmos. He wrote his prophetic Book of Revelation on Patmos . The apostle John was later freed and returned to serve As Bishop of Edessa in modern Turkey . He died as an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully

5. Peter
He was crucified upside down on an x-shaped cross.
According to church tradition it was because he told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die In the same way that Jesus Christ had died.

6. James
The leader of the church in Jerusalem , was thrown over a hundred feet down from the southeast pinnacle of the Temple when he refused to deny his faith in Christ. When they discovered that he survived the fall, his
enemies beat James to death with a fuller's club.
* This was the same pinnacle where Satan had taken Jesus during the Temptation.

7. James the Son of Zebedee,
was a fisherman by trade when Jesus Called him to a lifetime of ministry. As a strong leader of the church, James was beheaded at Jerusalem. The Roman officer who guarded James watched amazed as James defended his faith at his trial. Later, the officer Walked beside James to the place of execution. Overcome by conviction, he declared his new faith to the judge and Knelt beside James to accept beheading as a Christian.

8. Bartholomew
Also known as Nathaniel Was a missionary to Asia. He witnessed for our Lord in present day Turkey. Bartholomew was martyred for his preaching in Armenia where he was flayed to death by a whip.

9. Andrew
Was crucified on an x-shaped cross in Patras, Greece. After being whipped severely by seven soldiers they tied his body to the cross with cords to prolong his agony. His followers reported that, when he was led toward the cross, Andrew saluted it in these words: 'I have long desired and expected this happy hour. The cross has been consecrated by the body of Christ hanging on it.' He continued to preach to his tormentors For two days until he expired.

10. Thomas
Was stabbed with a spear in India during one of his missionary trips to establish the church in the Sub-continent.

11. Jude
Was killed with arrows when he refused to deny his faith in Christ.

12. Matthias
The apostle chosen to replace the traitor Judas Iscariot, was stoned and then beheaded.

13. Paul
Was tortured and then beheaded by the evil Emperor Nero at Rome in A.D. 67. Paul endured a lengthy imprisonment, which allowed him to write his many
epistles to the churches he had formed throughout the Roman Empire. These letters, which taught many of the foundational Doctrines of Christianity, form a large portion of the New Testament.

Perhaps this is a reminder to us that our sufferings here are indeed minor compared to the intense persecution and cold cruelty faced by the apostles and disciples during their times For the sake of the Faith. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: But he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Pass on to encourage other Christians
Why Do we feel sleepy in Prayer,
But stay awake through a 3 hour movie?
Why are we so bored when we look at the HOLY BOOK,
But find it easy to read other books?
Why is it so easy to ignore a msg about God,
Yet we forward the nasty ones?
Why are Prayers getting smaller,
But bars and clubs are expanding
Why is it so easy to worship a celebrity,
But very difficult to engage with God?


Make this message your contribution to the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, be blessed.

God created everyone with unique abilities.
God desires all believers to be equipped to do their part in the body of Christ.To serve God effectively, we must follow God's design for the church.Serving God must be about what He does in us, through us not what we do.We are all part of the body of Christ and each part matters.

A FEARFUL PLACE God brings everyone.....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


There is A FEARFUL PLACE God brings everyone destined for a great walk with Him.


● It is a place WHERE YOU OVERCOME THE FEAR OF BEING ALONE.

● It is a place WHERE YOU GREATLY LOVE PEOPLE BUT AREN'T AFRAID OF LOSING THEM WHEN NECESSARY.

● It is a place WHERE NO ONE HAS THE GREATER PART OF YOUR HEART BUT GOD.

● It is a place WHERE THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE THE MOST CAN'T STAND BETWEEN YOU & GOD.


And that's why:



♧♧♧ Jacob had to send THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN HIS LIFE TO THE OTHER SIDE before wrestling with DIVINITY!

《《 THEN JACOB WAS LEFT ALONE, AND A MAN WRESTLED WITH HIM UNTIL THE BREAKING OF DAY. 》


May the Lord meet you in your quiet hour.
