Turning Covid -19 challenges to Financial Prosperity

Sunday Service (18th October, 2020)

Ministering: Pastor Ademola (Asst.Pastor of Province 7)

Text: Genesis 1: 28

Theme: Turning Covid-19 challenges to Financial Prosperity

 

Covid -19 was a worldly crisis; the world was as a child with convulsions during the pandemic times.

Covid -19 came with lots of challenges, a few of the challenges can be streamlined into:

  1. Economic challenges:

Loss of jobs

Closure of businesses or industries

Price of oil crash

 

  1. Socio- cultural challenges:

Absence of parties like birthdays, house warming, funeral ceremonies etc.

 

  1. Health challenges: killings from the virus and psychological effect on people as a result of the pandemic etc.

 

HOW CAN I TURN THE COVID -19 CHALLENGES TO PROSPERITY?

Luke 14: 28

You can turn the covid -19 challenges into financial prosperity by applying the SWOT analysis.

Identifying core strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats lead to fact based analysis, fresh perspectives and new ideas.

STRENGTH: This describes what you are good at, what makes you special, what people see in you. To achieving this area of analysis, sit and identify the strength in you.

 

WEAKNESSES: This stop or hinders and individual from performing at its optimum level. What are your financial weaknesses? Some weaknesses are having too many dependent relatives or being a splendid.

 

OPPORTUNITIES: Opportunities refers to favourable external factors that could give an individual a competitive advantage. You can get involved in online businesses, reduce expenses by doing some certain things on your own, sell off your junks, get hooked up with intermediary transportation etc.

 

THREATS: These are factors that have potential to harm you; to avoid this, strive to maintain a budget or financial discipline, eat good food to stay healthy and maintain a hygienic environment.

 

Facts: It’s not everything that is necessary, you have a choice to increase your source of income or reduce your financial expenses; challenges are wrappers for opportunities.

 

Conclusion: everyone needs to sit down and make plans on how to succeed and be sustainable in this post Covid -19 era.

 

That I May Know Him

Sunday Service: 11th of Oct.2020(2nd service)

Ministering: Pastor Femi Fekoya

Text: Philippians 3: 10

Topic: That I May know Him More

The earnest desire of Apostle Paul was to know God more.

A man becomes like God when he desires to know Him more.

2nd Timothy

Five things about knowing a man

  1. By hearing or reading about the person
  2. By introduction
  3. By having a personal contact with the person
  4. By having a personal relationship with him
  5. By having a personal deep relationship with God

Paul wasn’t satisfied with no 1 – 4 above nut want to have a personal relationship with God.

The knowledge in Philippians 3: 10 is one or one knowledge of God, Genesis 4: 1.

The spirit of God will flow in you, when you have a fellowship with God.

Psalm 27: 4; David was always winning because He had a a relationship with God.

What is the power of resurrection?

Romans 8: 11; the power of resurrection is the power of the Holy Ghost.

The spirit of God is the power of God.

What is the fellowship of His suffering?

The fellowship of His suffering is to suffer for the gospel; to be able to serve others. Acts 9: 16 – 18

Romans 8:17, those that suffer with Him will also be glorified with Him in Heaven

Being conformable to His death is to be able to fulfill the purpose of His death

To live morally renewed and regenerated to the life of Christ.

Pray this: Father, let the purpose of your death be fulfilled in my life

It’s Not Too Late

Sunday Service..11th October, 2020 (1st service)

Ministering: Pastor Gbenga Babalola

Theme: It’s Not Too Late

Text: Job 17: 11 -17

Introduction: 

One of the greatest things the enemy can do in the life of any man is to make him or her think it’s too late.

It’s too late is just a mentality, it’s not so if God hasn’t said so.

Why do people think it’s too late?

  1. Age
  2. Weakness
  3. No time
  4. No money

How do I know that it’s not too late?

  1. With God all things are possible
  2. There’s hope for a tree
  • Faith is applicable to the now, while hope is applicable to someday

It’s not too late to:

  1. Give one’s life to Jesus Christ, Colossians 2: 6- 7
  2. Return and settle with God, Matthew 24: 12
  3. Call upon the name of the Lord, Jeremiah 33: 6, 1st Chronicles 4: 10
  4. Take an action
  5. Claim what belongs to you
  6. Start all over again.

Pray this:  Father, send your fire to my life, to your church, to my spirit, my soul in the name of Jesus.
