Title - Enduring Victory

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- James 1:27

Bible Passages:- Joshua 2:1, Gal 6:10, 2 Sam 9:1-13, Joshua 6:25, Matt 5:13-16

People don't care about what you know until they know that you care. Compassion and mercy are of the Lord. 
We cannot separate Christianity from acts of kindness/doing good. We can't successfully reach out to souls without first showing kindness
Lamentations 3:22-23

To whom should we show kindness?

1. The widow - James 1:27

2. The orphans

3. The household of faith. Joshua 2:1-END

4. Our neighbors and perishing individuals, Gal 6:10

The benefits of kindness: 

1. The kindness you show today can speak for you tomorrow, 2 Sam 9:1-13

2. Acts of kindness can bring salvation to our household. Joshua 6:25

3. It authenticates our profession that we are God's children INDEED! Matt 5:13-16

4. It attracts eternal blessings. Matt 25:34-37

Anyone that knows good and fails to do it, to him/her it is SIN. Anyone that does evil unto his/her brother, evil will not depart from that household.

Prayer Point: Almighty God, I want to resemble You in character and in the way I do things. I want to be a genuine Christian. Please don't let me give up in doing good. The same way Jesus was known for going around doing good, please also let me known for good things.

Title - The Battle of the Heart

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- Philippians 4:6-7

Bible Passages:- Philippians 4:6-7.

There is a constant war the devil fights against everybody in the world today.
He has no respects for the status possessed by any. Not the rich nor poor, not the kings or servants.
The War is of the The Mind/Heart of humans. The devil's goal, is to place anxiety in your heart
However God wants you to know he has the solution. Philippians 4: 6-7.
All those things troubling your mind, pour it out to God.
 In prayer, Supplication and with thanksgiving pour out your hearts to God.

For example those facing depression and do not know the way out,  may commit suicide. 
Some may turn to alcohol, drugs even sex. It may make you happy for few minutes but once you become sober, you are back to your former depressed state.

What is troubling your heart today ?
Pour out your heart to God
- In prayer, Supplication and Thanksgiving 
Make your anxiety made known to God.
Our God, who has the solution to all our problems will give you peace in Jesus Name.
