Title - Who is my Neighbor ?

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:-  Luke 10: 25-37

Bible Passages:- Luke 10: 25-37, Hebrews 11:16, John 10:10, James 

You may be familiar with the story of a man robbed and seriously injured in the book of Luke 10:25 - 37
The thieves stripped him, wounded him and departed leaving him half dead.

The first person who passed by was a priest (a representative of God) 
He took no action to help the wounded victim.
He left him in a wounded and critical state.

The second person who stumbled across the victim was a Levite.
A Levite is also someone considered a person close to God.
Consecrated to God's work. Yet he took no move or step to help the victim.

The third person who came across the same path of the victim was a Samaritan
Samaritan's are considered people of little or no regard for God.
They do not follow the commandments yet he did the right thing.

Who do you think God was pleased with ?
Who will be considered the victim's neighbour?
The Priest, Levite or the Samaritan.
Let us look around for people with needs.Do not ignore them.

Every little step you take is accounted for before God.
Any act of kindness will show forth in future.
Do not ignore the needs for your neighbour.
Show kindness today

Title - Grace Erases Disgrace

Teacher:- Pastor Moses Omoviye

Main Text:- Genesis 11: 3-7

Bible Passages:- Isaiah 1:18, Isaiah 54:5, Jeremiah 33:3

Grace is God's Help (unmerited favor)

We all need the Grace of God as He is able to do all things.
No matter how intense your situation may be, our God is able.
That Grace that commands God help will be our portion in Jesus Name.
Nahum 1:3-4 explains the greatness of our God who is able to do ALL things.
If the clouds are just like dust underneath his feet, what could be hard for this God ?

Things that bring Disgrace
- Sickness
- Poverty
and much more.
But When God kicks in *(His Grace)* Disgrace ceases.

Let Us see Examples of People who were Graced

1 Corinthians 15:10, Paul mentioned all the work he did during his lifetime was not as a result of his hard work but by the Grace of God

Genesis 6:9 - Noah was living in a generation that was going to be utterly destroyed
However, God spared spared him and his Family.

The Grace of God will
- exempts You from Destruction
You may come from a family with a generational curse.
However, the Grace of God could exempt you from every stronghold of the enemy

- put you above the storms of Life
Everything on the face of the earth was covered with water.
However Noah's ark was lifted above the waters. 
Grace causes you to float where others are sinking

- You can enjoy some measure of Grace by association
God found Noah as an upright man.
However his family were saved because of their connection with Him
When some people come into your life, you begin to enjoy more Grace

Grace is What
-  put God on your side
- Guarantees God's presence will go with you.
- over rules your history and background - Esther 2:17
- makes you preferred above others - Esther 2:17

The more you increase in Grace, the more you can make commands and Heaven will listen
Joshua commanded the sun to stand still and God honoured his word.
Joshua was too Graced to be Disgraced

May you ride on the wings of Grace in Jesus Name.
