A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE SERMON MINISTERED BY ELDER (DR.) GODWIN BASSEY ON THE TOPIC “THE BELIEVERS’ INHERITANCE IN THE NEW COVENANT” DURING THE SECOND QUARTER COMMUNION SERVICE.
The Minister began by admonishing the congregation to understand the reasons why they are partaking in the Holy Communion. The Bible Reading which was taken from Hebrews 8:1-3 revealed God’s plan of writing His new covenant on our hearts rather than on tablets.
Elder Godwin Bassey also made it known that as believers, we are operating under the new covenant in which Jesus is at the center. Further, the first miracle of God in a believer’s life as noted by the Minister is God releasing his grace upon us through the blood of Jesus Christ and whosoever is in Christ is a new creature (2nd Corinthians 5:17).
In conclusion, the Minister encouraged Christians to accept Jesus Christ and acknowledge the price He paid for us in order for us to live fulfilled lives and have eternal life; trusting in God at all times and being steadfast.
