Sermon by Rev. James Taiwo

The church has lost its first love. Why and where have we fallen?

  1. Cares of the world (They initially appear okay but quickly degenerate into spiritual pitfalls)
  • Competition
  • Thirst for wealth
  1. People are afraid of persecution, peer pressure, and fear of unknown. Meanwhile, God withdraws his hands when people fail under whatever circumstance.
  • “You have left your first love” (Revelation 2:1-4).
  • “Why… because you have not kept sabbath day holy” (Isaiah 58:3-6).
  • “The hands of the Lord is not too short to save” (Isaiah 59:1-2).
  • “The eyes of the Lord move to and fro the earth so show himself strong on behalves of people that serve him” (2 Chronicles 16:9).

Don’t blame others: We Are All Causes Of Christian Failures!

  • Parents
  • Children
  • Church
  • Church leadership

What Have We Promoted?

  • Technological gadget vs Bible
  • Cartoon Network vs Christian Education
  • Fairy tales vs Bible stories
  • Secular songs vs Memory verses

How can we go back to God?

Christians must have discipline.

  • Cut out the unnecessary stuff, and
  • Set our priority right

For example,

The parents can make their home a micro church and promote

  • Singing Christian songs
  • Family bible discussion
  • Family prayer
  • Make children play games with the Bible characters

God Gives Divine Direction To His Children

God Gives Divine Direction To His Children

God’s divine direction is important for successful Christian living.

Holy Spirit directed Philip to travel through a desert so that he could meet and preach to a man who was yearning to learn about Jesus Christ.

The scripture reported,

lead“An angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert. So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship, was returning.

And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet. Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Go near and overtake this chariot” Philip obeyed the Holy Spirit and he preached to the traveler; the man gave his life to Jesus Christ and was immediately baptized. (Acts 8:26-29 ).

 

divine directionLesson on God’s Divine Direction

Holy Spirit is a guide to all Christians (which gives divine direction); any Christian who responds to his leadership will not fail in life and ministry.

The Spirit of God operates in diverse ways, and he can lead any Christian to carry out some unusual tasks.

However, the Holy Spirit would only guide anyone to please God, and he would never contradict bible principles!

Moreover, miracles happen when a Christian responds to the leadership of the Holy Spirit: People receive salvation, healing, faith, assurance, and other miracles.

Also, God rejoices whenever his children adequately respond to the leadership of his Spirit.

Hence, it can be concluded that there is no regret in heeding to the instructions and leadership of the Holy Spirit.

It is a Win-Win situation for all parties.

Devil is the only one who loses in the process!

 

Prayer for Discerning Spirit

Praying handsDear God, please teach me how to respond to the leadership of the Holy Spirit.

Let me be prayerful and sensitive so that I can understand every instruction that the Spirit offers.

Make me a sensitive servant that listens to the voice of the Holy Spirit, and makes me an obedient servant that yields to his instructions.

Let my obedience benefit your kingdom. Let me never regret serving you, but help me to prosper in this life, and in heaven also.

For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
