Faithfulness Pt 6 The Cheerful Giver

The first century church was identified with a people who understood the infinite value of the Gospel and became ‘Cheerful Givers”, what characteristic shall identify the last century church respecting their money? It truly breaks my heart to see what little value most Christians place on the Gospel. It seems that if there is not a personal benefit that comes from giving to support this work, the majority of Christians will get offended when dealing with this topic biblically. It seems that unless the doctrine is preached as a purely “Give so you can get” message, few will support the gospel. Little wonder why the last days are known as days of apostasy. But when we do give for the work of the Lord, then are we taking a share in the work of Christ. Suddenly, those who are not preachers BECOME preachers as they support the work; they who are not evangelists BECOME evangelists as they support the work; they become WRITERS, TEACHERS, NURSES etc, as they support the work through the blessings in which they have been blessed. How sad it is for those who cannot see it, whose hearts are hardened against the simplicity of the doctrine. The Prosperity Gospel is popular, but many hearts are revealed when this topic is dealt with biblically. Pr Edi

A Bag With Holes

Introduction Luke 17:11–19 11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were…

Looking Unto Jesus

Looking Unto Jesus Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2 Introduction: “The key to joy”, we’re looking at today’s text which I believe is another key to our endeavours to live a life of  faith…JOYFULLY Today’s text not only encapsulates crucial elements of our faith but also so much…

Faith, The Key TO Joy Pt3: Thinking Differently

We need to think differently. “But be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”. What is it that would drive a group of 25 men in Syria, during the time of the Isis occupations that were sweeping the land, to purchase for themselves a graveyard to bury one another in for the almost certain death that would come for the preaching of the gospel of Christ? What would drive a young father, recently turned to Christ from Islam, to hand…

Faith; The Key To Joy pt2. Where It Began

The Key To Joy: Where It Began Luke 2:8–11 8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in…

Faith, The Key To Joy Pt 1: Them That Honour Me…

The consideration for this series is one where I fear many of our brethren seem to be struggling so greatly in these days. The struggle is with faith and with the KNOWLEDGE of how valuable each of them are to the kingdom of God and that, abiding in the kingdom, we are to live in a constitution that is diametrically opposed to that manner of living evident in the world. Those who honour me I will honour. (1 Sam 2:30) There…

He Will Feed, Clothe, Keep Me

He will Feed Me, He will Clothe Me, He will keep me. Cody Kereopa 24/09/2023 Matthew 6: 24 – 34 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what…
