This is the day that the Lord has made and we are going to rejoice and be glad in it for He has planted us by the rivers of living waters and in this year we are going to spring forth with fruits in abundance. I am so blessed to be on the land of the living to offer up praise and thanks to Almighty God. Our hope and desire must be from the rising of the sun to the going down of the same.
This Morning I want to send special greetings to Abbess Hon. Janet McClean and Queen Mother Abbess Hon. Ursula Lawrence our two seniors in ministry. This is a day to thank God for the work that He has done in you over the years. I personally want to bless the Lord for keeping you under the shadows of His wings. The Lord has promised to bless you and to protect you. I also, greet my Lord Patriarch The Rt. Hon Sir Dr Darrindel Hoyte-Johnson for such a wonderful New Year’s message to the Church. I pray that the Lord continue to watch over you and the world will see the fruits of your labour.
Greetings to our Queen Abbess, Senior Bishop, Cardinal and Chief Bishop for you have played a very important role in ministry over the last year. To Our god belong all honour and glory for you. May your steps be anointed and continue in the service of the Lord in this New Year. The ministry depends on your faith, commitment and integrity. For in all your ways I will ask the Lord to direct your steps and to keep you lest you should fall. As ministers you have to be examples to all and more so those that look up to you. You are leaders of the flock and are accountable to God for their safe keeping.
Everyone has a role to play in church, by the life we live. A minister is a servant to the people and not at any time a master. We must always be humble and ready to serve forgiving one another and loving each other.
May this day be a blessing to you and those of us who name the Name of Christ must depart from iniquity. This year is not a new page but a new book. Let it be this way because every thing in word, thoughts and deed will be noted by the recording angels and the book will be your copy. This year you have to love me first because you are seeing me then think of loving God who you cannot see. This will we do our dying Lord we will remember Thee. The Bible tells us that there are other sheep which are not of this fold and God will bring them together, so my brothers and sisters prepare to welcome others in this ministry that do not share your beliefs but are heaven bound like you. God is the one calling and not man. So have an open mind.
Let me again thank Dr. Waterman for having us as part of his ministry and as family. I also, want to welcome Bishop Jones and Reverend Jeffrey of Rochester, NY for being a part of this ministry. That came possible through the life of our Patriarch. In this year the Lord will multiply our efforts and this ministry will grow a hundred fold. We are sowing seeds and then wait on the harvest. Let the Lord have His way in our lives today and every other day. In blessing He will bless and multiply our needs according to our riches in glory. Have a great day and may Almighty God bless and keep you. I love you.
