If you want to live a Christian life in a proper manner, learn to live a joyful life. This is not happiness (based on events) but joy (internal energy that drives one's life regardless of what is going on). When you know that God is control and things are not working, you will know that things will be alright. Be always in a state of prayer and give thanks in all circumstance. The only balancing thing in life is to be in the presence of God - Praying without ceasing
Feasting or fasting, what do you want? God has designed life for feasting and fasting to be taking place all the time.
Whatever we do, it should always be in pursuit of truth, love and peace. Without the pursuit of peace, love and truth, fasting or feasting can become a ritual devoid of meaning.

If the church is functional from within then it can fulfill its mandate. Something is not true because it's in the bible; but it' in the bible because it's true. One of those important truths found in the bible is the relationship between the reach and depth. You cannot sustain height if you don't have depth. The ministry of the church to the world is to represent Jesus Christ, to reveal Him, and to release His power.

There are things you need to do in order to see transformational change
What enabled our forefathers to achieve great things: their Christian Profile, their Christian Practice and their Christian Power. THE CHURCH IS NOT CONFINED TO FOUR WALLS. The Church of Jesus Christ is people, His people of every race and nation who love Christ and are committed to both the great commandment and the great commission.
Mature people understand intuitively that in this life there are some things worth fighting for; worth sacrificing for. Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah, the question is after being born again have you began walking with God? Are you walking with God? Do you have an experience with God? Mature people show up to change the society and immature people live to show off. Characteristics of mature people:
1. Noticed [Job 1:6-8, John 1:35-42, Luke 5:1-5] . Mature people are noticed by heaven. Can heaven notice you?
2. Christ Centred [ 2 Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 1:21; Hebrews 12:1-3]. Mature people live a Christ centred life. Mature people spend time beholding on Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ became the first priority.
3. Mission driven [ John 4:34; John 17:4,18]. Mature people are mission driven people.
Do you work for a living or work for the living? Mature people are productive spiritually.
Think about your legacy. What legacy are you going to leave? If your name is mentioned when you are not around, what are people going to say about you? Naomi had a good legacy. Her legacy can be explained as follows: (i) Strength of character (ii) Unshakable faith in God in the midst of dark times (iii) Commitment to empowering the next generation.

Communion with God is the loving fellowship with Him in Christ. It simply means that I begin to pursue God and look for Him; and go into a deep relationship because of Christ. His interest becomes my interest. It is also the inner desire to always keep in touch with God.
As God’s people living in His world, we are called to adjust our lifestyle to Christ’s standard so that we can be used in an accurate and exact way.
1. Connect with the heart and mind of God
a. Interest in God draws His attention. But interest must be given direction and depth.
2. Confront “the challenge of change.”
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Three categories of Christ-followers:
1. THE IGNORANT (EPHESIANS 4:14; JAMES 1:6-8)
Who are tossed back and forth, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching...
2. THE EGOCENTRIC (LUKE 12:16-21)
Who only care about themselves but are not rich toward God.
3. THE “MISSIONAL”
Who understand and embrace their position as God’s agents in the world.
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
An age-old question with far reaching impact:
- Elisha (2KINGS 2:9-15)
- Isaiah (ISAIAIH 6:8-9)
- Jesus Christ (JOHN 4:34-38; JOHN 17:4, 18; JOHN 20:19-23; ACTS 1:8; 2CORINTHIANS 5:14-21)
3. Accept the cultural shift
So that the world may hear the gospel, see it, and follow it.
2 KINGS 10:16; ACTS 9:36-41; ISAIAH 21:11-12; PHILIPPIANS 2:15
