TEXT: 1Tim 3:15-16

Recap: The church is the ground and pillar of truth. As believers, we make up the church hence there are certain traits and conducts required of us. Last week we considered Simplicity and Sincerity. Today, we look further to learn other traits we must possess as true believers.
SUBMISSION (John3:8): A believer should be workable and teachable not having a rigid mind. If indeed Jesus is your LORD, you should learn to say YES to Him at all times.
In the book of Acts, Peter was able to receive the ministry of the Gentiles because though He had a preconceived notion that the ministry of Jesus was for the Jews alone, he obeyed when he saw the vision that was shown to him.
Submission to God's will and counsel is the hallmark of every believer. If you're strong opinionated, it shows the level of your spiritual growth.
Always remain open minded to the instruction of the Holyspirit.
We should also learn to obey those who serve as leaders over us ( Pastors, Bishops).
SOBRIETY (Titus 1:8): Being Temperate, Moderate in all things, Showing no excessive qualities, Not addicted to anything, Not going to any extreme.
A believer should not throw caution to the wind. Let Christ be seen in you at all times. Others should be able to follow your example.
In Mark 6, King Herod threw caution to the wind and that cost the life of John the Baptist.
SELF CONTROL (Titus 1:8): This is also a fruit of the Spirit. Moses, the meekest man on earth (Numbers 13:2), still had issues with one thing-self control.
No matter how powerful you are, you need something to keep you controlled and in check (James 3:4).
Anyone who is not self controlled is a disaster waiting to happen. Uncontrolled energy leads to disaster.

To the youths: Serve the Lord in the days of your youths, channel your energy and passion towards a good course.
SUPPORT: A believer should be a support for the work of the ministry and the gospel. Make sure your life is a support to wherever you have decided to serve.
Even in Jesus' ministry, certain women supported (Luke 8:1-3). Dorcas (Acts 9: 36-39), supported the believers with her resources and even when she died, help rose on her behalf. Barnabas (Acts 4), was a source of support to the work of the ministry.
2Corinthians 9, God is able to raise financiers for the kingdom. Be a strong support for the ministry with the resources God has committed into your hands.
Be a believer who possesses the right conduct that Christ be seen in you at all times.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to pattern my life according to your word. Grant me grace to submit to you and to every God given authority. Help me Lord to be sober minded and to maintain self control at all times. I receive grace to play my part in the body.
In areas where this word has brought about correction, I repent Lord and decide to make amends where necessary. Help me Father to continually yield to the transformation your word brings at all times.
Thanks for joining us this morning. Our prayer is that we remain proof producers of God's word.

Wednesday is another time to be blessed of God. Join us for our Hotline to Heaven service by 5pm. God bless you.

Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger. The life we live as Christians is an empowered life.
Believers are ordinary people who have been supernaturally empowered by God. It should be evident in our lives that things are working for us beyond the ordinary.
We have the resources of Heaven backing us up so it may not be about having excess but having an assurance that we can never be stranded.

Topic: Grace for Speed
Text: 1Kings 18: 41-46

Elijah was a man of faith. One who believed strongly in the word of God. He made sure He held on to the promise of rain even when it didn't seem like it. He was persistent till the fulfillment of the word came.
Faith is described as continued action in the absence of evidence.

When you have Grace for Speed, all other natural laws are suspended. People will question your victories and accomplishments because it's unfathomable by human understanding.
