GLOBAL COMMUNION SERVICE WITH PASTOR CHRIS (SUNDAY, 5TH MAY, 2019)
You have to worship God God’s way. If you study the Bible, there are different kinds of offerings; there are different kinds of prayers and they won’t all produce the same results.
You’ve to worship God in His way. And just because a song talks about God doesn’t make it worship. However, there’s also a mix of worship & praise; meaning you can give God worship through praise.
In praise we extall God’s greatness and a lot of times, it more about Him than to Him. Worship is primarily the submission, a presentation of yourself in devotion and humility, expressing yourself to Him in “deep surrender”.
A song isn’t a worship song because you say, I worship you. It’s about the lyrics and how you present yourself before the Lord in submission to His greatness, His power and love.
God is not making weak people strong, He is not making the poor rich. You may feel good to think that way but He doesn’t do it.
The bible says in 1 Corinthians 2:12 _”Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”_
The greater truth/light tells you that God isn’t going to do anything about the world’s situation, rather, we (the Christians) are the ones to do it, and attribute all glory to God.
The bible says in Luke 9:1-2 _”Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. 2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.”_
You have the life of God in you; you body has become His dwelling place and you’ve become the answer to the world.
So what would you be asking for? Nothing! From that moment, anything you ever want in your life is yours. Your problem would be trying not to want just anything because they will certainly come.
Not one of us is allowed to live in lack. Our heavenly Father has more than enough angels to minister to you. You live in Him. The day you open your consciousness to know that you live in Him, you’ll stop searching; you’ll realize you have all abilities you’d ever need.
A meeting of God’s people is a meeting of Kings; a meeting of divinity. When you come to such set of people, you cannot do it in a normal way; you’ve to receive special utterances from the Spirit. When we do things for ourselves and the world, we are Masters. But when we are with other believers (equals in the kingdom), we do so with so much revelation.
*MAY, THE MONTH OF LEADERSHIP*
The Spirit of God says about this month “Aheadship/Supremacy”
Grace for leadership, this month of May; being ahead, is released upon you this month.
The most important thing about leadership is LIGHT. Without light you’re not a leader. The one who has the light is the leader otherwise, how can you lead with darkness?
_”Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.”_
God gave the kingship to Judah even though he wasn’t the first born. What the Lord has done is that He’s already given us leadership.
Leadership is responsibility, it’s inspiring; leadership will stir you up into action.
Grace is working big time this month.
God has made us leaders and we can’t change it. We have got to do something and know that you cannot fail. You’re chosen to win, to lead; you are the light of the world. You shall be above only.
_”And the Lord shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:”_
For us in Christ, we are born into victory; to be above only. We have ideas, insights, foresight’s, guidance, answers, leadership. We know what to do because the Holy Spirit is in us. We have excellent spirits.
We work by faith and not by sight. We don’t yield to pressure. You declare, “I know who I am; I’m a success; greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world”. But when you think about the challenges, count it all joy that you go through diverse tests. Glory to God!
