Sunday service SERMON: WHERE ARE YOU?– JANUARY 19, 2020
The service started with a prayer by Pastor Festus, follow by praise and worship by the Royal choirs. Our Papa Apostle Chris Ashigba, mounted the pulpit at exact 9:05am, he started by appreciating the church, after which the man of God introduced the guest preacher in the house, Rev. David Tetteh, and he was welcomed to the pulpit.
THE SERMON: WHERE ARE YOU? Rev. David Tetteh, started by saying God created man to have communion with him, and the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul (Gen.2:7). Man was with the spirit of God until Man lost it after disobeying Him (Gen.3:1-15). So man is now made of only soul and body. Until God sent His Son Jesus to come and die for you and I for the spirit of God which was lost to be restored (John 3:16)
He said in the world today, nations are classified into three Parts, (1) Some are called developed country (2) Some are called developing country (3) While some are called under developed country. He said by scientific innovation human beings are exploiting the planet, movement have become very easy, unlike in the olden days when moving from one place to the other was so difficult, almost everything in the world today is advanced, with all these God still say man is lost.
He said a man came to Jesus according to the gospel of (John 3:1-6) name Nicodemus he was a Pharisees, a prominent man in the society, a lawyer, he came to Jesus by night, what must I do to be save?, Jesus answered him by saying no one can see the kingdom of God except you are born again. But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe in him (John 1:12). He said In the world today there are two categories of people, The God’s creation, and God’s Children. If human beings have set a standard and you violate the standard, you will never be allowed to proceed and you will be cautioned. Then what about the son of God who have set a standard, that before you see the kingdom of God you must be born again?
He said there are steps we need to take when you are not in the covering of God, without the spirit of God.
1. You must admit that you have sinned, and you cannot save yourselves
2. Accepting Jesus as Your Lord and personal Savior (1 John 1:8-9)
3. You must confess with your mouth that no man can do that on your behalf. (Romans 10:9-10).
He said this to end his preaching, when God save us, we are save to bring our brothers and sister into the kingdom of God for them to be save, by so doing you are bearing fruit, The one who bears fruit God take care and protect, (John 15 :1- 6) so what so ever you ask in His Name will be granted to you (John 15:16).
After the sermon the Royal city Choristers presented a very powerful song ministration to bless God.
And Eight members also gave Testimony after the song ministration.
