Our final destination December 31 is growth. The vital questions will be "How much did I grow?", "Which area did I grow?" and "Am I happy with my growth" We need to take certain roads that lead us to growth 1. Purity - How pure am I? 2. Trust - Trust God that He will take you to your destination 3. Consecration - Give yourself to God, all of you 4. Grace - Grace to function in your life 5. Relationship - Life does not work without relationship 6. Responsibility - Whatever you do, play your role and take full responsibility 7. Jesus - Whatever you do, Christ must be at the centre of it all
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Just as God has entrusted a woman to carry a child in a womb, God has entrusted the church with souls. As a womb provides growth for the child for 9 months, the church is an environment for the people of God to grow and reach maturity. If the people of God do not grow, then it becomes a problem. It is important for us to realise that if we do not sit (in the same church), we do not grow – Learn to sit until God makes you stand. It is the responsibility of the elders to be alert and pray for the church. The devil wants to disconnect the relationship between the church and the leadership. Be alert! Do not let the devil disconnect you from the leadership.
Grace does not take account our background, what we have or our abilities. In grace, God reveals His love to His people the demonstration of His love. The love of God cannot be compared or understood. The grace of God is beyond our understanding. If you do not believe, the grace will be ineffective in your life.
God has not forgotten your prayer. Your prayer will give you a gift and a gift from God. Fear not because your prayer has been answered. A number of us have old prayers that have not been answered - the prayers you have forgotten God has answered them. What makes your prayers get answered? 1. Service 2. Grace. All of u are called to offer service to God
The purpose of this prayer and fast is for sanctification and consecration for 2016. 2016 is a banquet before us being filled with all sorts of things that delight our hearts. You have a choice to accept or refuse the banquet. Pay attention to what goes on in your heart and that which you keep in your heart. In 2016, you have decisions to make, people to meet and travelling to do. The prayer and fast is to prepare us for what is ahead of us in 2016, for God to go before us. We need to take out all the rubbish that is in our hearts: Unbelief, Self centeredness, Negativity, Self-pity, Sin, and Insecurity. We need to create space (make room) in our hearts and lives for Christ. We need to have confidence in Him alone and trust in Him.

God is not unjust, He is not biased and will not abuse you - God is faithful and just in your life. God rewards those that serve Him - He pays service not christianity. God is moved by those that honour Him. You need perserverence/endurance: 1. As you serve, God is also training and teaching you 2. There will be a time we feel like giving up 3. There will be adversity/resistance. Continue to have faith as you serve the Lord

The dream of God for your life is bigger than the dream you have for your life – The only thing is to trust Him. Always check yourself because you might end up falling into professionalism. When you heart is moved, you do not check the title or identity of the person. Elements we must take note of in order to win the lost: 1. Love - REMOVE indifference, Selfishness, Professionalism. EMBRACE compassion 2. KNOW the Heart of the Father 3. UNDERSTAND the Purpose of your existence

The global mandate for Christians is the Great commission. For global mandate to take place there must be a change to attitude towards the great commission. 3 things that will help us change our attitude are: 1. Jesus has universal attitude - Jesus is in charge of everything (heaven & earth). His authority is universal. 2. Deal with the issue of attitude as far as spiritual leaders’ authority is concerned. Spiritual authority should be worthy of being submitted to. 3. Our own authority as people of God over the society. (a)Go out there and be a Christian. (b)Get into prayer - seriously into prayer. (c) Proclaim. There is an urgency of carrying out the great commission - a shift in the landscape of society is imminent
