SACRIFICE YOUR WATERPOT

ELDER DAVID ETUKUDO EXHORTS CHRISTIANS TO SACRIFICE THEIR WATERPOT

Elder David Etukudo began by defining sacrifice as the act of giving up something important to have something else. The minister pointed out that when a person sacrifices something, such a person does it with faith, and also does it expectantly.

The book of John 4:27-30 talks about the encounter the Samaritan woman had with Jesus at Jacob’s well. She sacrificed her water pot and rushed into the city to testify about what took place in her life. Thus, she abandoned her old ways of life and embraced JESUS.

In furtherance, the Minister urged the Church to sacrifice their time, resources, service and whatever will give glory to God. He noted that JESUS himself sacrificed His life for the Church. Conclusively, the Preacher noted that there are blessings of sacrificing unto GOD, most essentially, eternal life.

APPRECIATING GOD

REV BENSON CHARGES BELIEVERS TO APPRECIATE GOD

Rev. O. T. Benson charged the Church to always appreciate God. The Bible reading was taken from Luke 17: 11 – 19. The texts of emphasis were verses 15 – 19. The Superintendent commenced the sermon by defining appreciation as the act of estimating the qualities of things and giving them their proper value. It is also a thankful recognition.  

He pointed out that Christians’ lack of appreciating God is due to their lack of consciousness of what people are passing through. This tendency of ingratitude, as noted by the man of God, is a major reason for stagnation. If someone does not thank God for where God has brought him to, he will not get to the destination God plans for him.

Also, the Reverend noted that appreciation gives us a platform to receive greater blessings from God; it indicates that we value the blessings of God which prompts us to receive a glorious future.

He concluded the sermon by charging believers to be like the Samaritan that was healed of his leprosy by Jesus, and always return to give thanks to God.

                   The Superintendent, Rev O. T. Benson, gave a sermon titled “Divine Help” during the first Sunday Service of the month. The Bible Reading was taken from Psalms 121:1 – 2. The text of emphasis was verse 2. The man of God began the sermon by urging Christians to be steadfast in prayers as it is the only way man can communicate with God. In defining divine help, the Cleric stated that it means to alleviate the burden of someone by giving assistance to the person to go in a specific direction.

          The Minister also noted that the way a believer can access divine help is by trusting in God and approaching Him in prayers with total dependency on God alone. Another important point admonished by the Minister was that a believer must be very careful of where one seeks for help.

REDEEMING THE TIME

A SOLEMN CALL ON CHRISTIANS TO REDEEM THE TIME BY ELDER ENOBONG ATAT.

Elder Enobong Atat began his sermon by reminding Christians that time is a precious gift from God to mankind and as such, our most possession.

Thus, time is an essential component of life. The minister further noted that we cannot retrieve time, relive it, stretch it, borrow it, loan it, stop it or store it. It is therefore important to redeem the lost time.

In redeeming the time, four steps were listed to keep our hearts and minds in the right perspective regarding the time.
They are:

The brevity of time and the length of eternity.

Realize the uncertainty of tomorrow.

Learn to say NO and understanding what the will of God is.

Be wise as serpents (Mathew 10:16).

The cleric concluded by noting that we cannot afford to be idle and as such, our priorities should be prayer, bible reading, working in spirit, witnessing and not in vain talks.

Nonetheless, in redeeming the time, we must live our lives as unto God.

DILIGENCE

A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE SERMON MINISTERED BY ELDER (ARC.) OKON OBOT ON THE TOPIC “DILIGENCE” DURING THE 4TH SUNDAY SERVICE IN MAY.

The Minister began by defining diligence based on the dictionary and the bible. He then summarized the meaning of diligence as doing all that you do with awareness that God is with you always and continuously watching over you (Psalms 3:5) not only when you are asleep, awake, working, walking, indeed always as long as you breath. The Bible Reading was taken from Ephesians 6:7 and Psalms 3:5.

The Minister went further to define man as a person who executes diligence. He stated that when a believer understands this, he can close the door to the devil by renewing his mind – soul – and keeping his body – his flesh under the dominion of his recreated (born again) spirit.

Biblical characters such as Joseph, Job, Elisha and Paul were pointed out as diligent examples. In conclusion, the Congregation was charged to use the word of God at all times which is a useful guide to living a life of diligence.

THE BELIEVERS’ INHERITANCE IN THE NEW COVENANT

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.

Direct Quotes by Elder (Dr.) Godwin Bassey

“Jesus did it for us once and for all.”

“He has settled our eternity.”

“The problem of sin as far as you are concerned has been finally finished and terminated it in the new covenant.”

“Any Christian who has not received salvation has not started a new life in Christ”

“There is no excuse for living in sin.”

“Any Christian who has not received salvation has not started a new life in Christ.”
