Today we continue God’s blessing, as we baptized one newly follower of Christ, and welcomed a few new members. Not only for ourselves, but we celebrate with the Angels, the Kingdom of God and the global unified Church of Jesus Christ. To HIM be the glory! Along with our praiseworthy service, Pas Skeete conveyed a stirring message of “Our Call To Warfare”. We were challenged to become “Violent for the Kingdom” as informed by Jesus in Mathew 11:12 that “From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it.” (NIV) The notion is not so much of violence of evil, but in this context, “Violence” to force one’s way into the Kingdom of Heaven. A great example given as in the case of “the woman with the issue of blood” (Mathew 9:18-22), who through forceful opposition, determined that I will press to “touch the hem of Christ garments”. The question is asked, are you “Violent” enough, to press through and reach Christ and His Kingdom?
“But seek first HIS Kingdom and HIS righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Mathew 6:33
