"Our biggest struggle in life is to appreciate the life that is truly life as well as our Heavenly Fathers disposition towards us". Religion does not promote relationships. Cause for people to drift away: foolishness, greed, recklessness and rebellion. The course results in people being further and farther in search of freedom and fun. Which leads to crunch time - things beyond human control; hunger and need. Critical steps necessary to head back home: cure, clear thinking (repentance) and concrete steps.
“People as well as institutions
which dare to be different, not
weird or spooky, tend to make a
difference in society. Samuel was such man!”. Samuel made a big difference on the landscape of his nation. Samuel dared to be different in an apostate society. Three types of people: those who never grow, those who grow imperfectly
those who grow steadily. Samuel continued to grow in four areas: spirit, mind, character and zeal.
Tucked between Christ’s resurrection and ours to come is the church of God on a mission here on earth to influence the way people think, how they behave, and who they ultimately glorify. But, any local church that allows the local culture to invade her will certainly fail in her mission. 1) What makes us the church of God: i) the life of God we share, ii) the will of God we submit to and iii) the work of God we seek to promote. 2) What threatens the church of God? The guiding philosophies of this age which are shaping the people of our generation: humanism, moral laxity, and personal selfishness. 3) What may cause the church of God to fail?: lack of readiness, courage and moral convictions. 4) What will help the church of God succeed ? The message of the Cross delivered in the power of the Resurrection with a steadfast faith, an unmovable hope, and an enthusiastic work done out of love for God and his people.
How you respond to the revelation of Jesus Christ has a massive bearing on how you live. People who are enthusiastic about the kingdom, wise in their day to day dealings, and relevant contributors to society are usually those who have understood and responded correctly to the revelation of Jesus Christ. People’s problem is a Sin (human rebellion against God) - people wanting to be as God or people choosing to live without God. Sin has brought devastating consequences on the human race. People’s solution to the Sin problem is Jesus Christ. People who respond well to Jesus Christ’s revelation tend to live right because: i) Pay attention to his divine identity and life-giving word, ii) Purse him passionately, iii) Prioritize his will, iv) Proclaim him to the rest and v) Persuade others for him.

"There is nothing as powerful as the moral choices we make in shaping the kind of life we live. Why we live, how we live, and eventually where we end up in life are all a resultant of our moral choices.” 1. The profile of the Lord’s servant - Jesus Christ did not come here on earth to do
his own things. 2. The paradox of the Lord’s servant - Jesus Christ was born to die so that God’s abundant life could be made available to us all. 3. The promise about the Lord’s servant - Jesus Christ would reveal the hidden nature
of every human-being because he knows us. His life and death would lead humanity to a cross-road where each individual will be obliged to make the most important moral choice; to reject him or to receive him. Choices have real consequences. Those who choose to reject Him will fall and those who choose to receive Him will rise.

"Radical boldness is one of the most indispensable ingredients needed for anyone who wants to stake a claim on all of salvation benefits available to those who are in Christ". How do you stake your claim: 1) Know that God cares about you more than you care to know. 2) Refuse to be bold enough to fight but cold to ask. 3) Resolve to cultivate a radical boldness in the area of asking and expecting. How to cultivate radical boldness: 1) Relationship with your heavenly father. 2) Revelation of the fathers generous disposition. 3) Revival of your spirit. 4) Inspiration about endless possibilities you have in Christ. Once you have cultivated boldness God will open both the upper spring (heavenly blessings) and lower spring (earthly blessings).

Every child of God should be ready to unashamedly proclaim the gospel to all; as a person who possesses and can share what can impart life, I am indebted to the people of my generation. I owe it to my God; I owe it to my Lord Jesus Christ; I owe it to the people of my generation; I owe it to the intrinsic power of the gospel

A nation in crisis is a result of: i) A discourage leader. ii) A demoralised army. iii) A devastated population. To turn everything around, we need a Partnership of trust with God.
To partner with God, we need to have: 1) Courage of conviction. 2) Careful selection - for some people are - i) Hold-backs ii) Sell-outs iii) Hide-outs iv) Sold-outs. 3) Confident approach - i) Strategic and ii) Decisive. We have great needs, but even a greater God. God uses the bold actions and fighting spirit of His people.
