HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
Patriarch Dr Granville Williams said three things are necessary to follow Christ in this immediate kind of way.
- We must submit to God’s Will
- We must depend on his grace
- We must seek to promote His glory.
Let’s look at these one at a time. First, we must submit to His will. That starts by realizing that God is in charge and He does not make mistakes. Therefore, God has placed us where we are for His purpose. God is like a General who has positioned His troops to accomplish a victory. The foot soldier may not understand why he is exerting so much energy to gain a hill in what seems to be the middle of nowhere. However, from the perspective of the General, that hill is a key acquisition.
Players that are put out on a football field all have a particular job to do. If the guy on the offensive line mopes about not being the Quarterback, the whole team will suffer. The team depends on each player doing his job.
In some churches, all the members have ordained ministers and there are no more “bell ringers”, no “Captain”, no Watchman”, no “Provers” and the list goes on. There is no one to lay the foundation stones but all want to live in the building. Where are the builders and how will you finish the building?
TO BE CONTINUED TOMORROW …….
