God the Provider of (Food) Man's Prime Need
Text:
Genesis 12:10, 26:1, Ruth 1:1-2, Deu 8:6-11

How One thing that can quickly turn any responsible restless is the absence of food in the house. God knew man's number one need right form day one and such that when He created the world, He pointed man straight to what he eat and where he will find it but with boundary. This food was not be sourced far away from where the man his wife were living, though cover of all the face of the earth is span of the Lord's provision. They were to find everything they needed with the garden that they worker and tillers of-farmers of. "And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. Read more

God's purposes for the Anglican Communion internally and externally in the next Decade.
Purposes:

1. To demonstrate His love to humanity.
2. To speak against evil.
3. To reconcile humanity to itself and God
4. To speak hope to a hopeless world.
5. To point the world to eternal life

To my mind, if God remains the same yesterday, today and forever-the unchanging God, the being synonymous with his character which never changes, then his purposes for the Anglican Communion and His church in general remain as He laid dawn and contained in the scriptures-the Holy Bible. "Love The Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your strength and love your neighbour as yourself" (Mtt. 22: 37-39). After all, He orders the seasons and the times, as such He brings about the decades and they do not change Him in-spite of the numerous changes decade succeeding decade have brought about due to the attempts of humankind at advancing and upgrading its living. Therefore God's purposes as always, for the next decade, will only have to stream from His root purpose of love-love for him and love for your neighbour-being the summary of the law. The Anglican Communion is strategically positioned to influenced for good, the world in the next decade if it first of all puts its house in order. For as it stands today, it is a bundle of brooms whose cord is broken and a house in disarray. Read More

Christ with the largest following and the most celebrated figure in the history of the world, has made Christmas the single largest world event divinely instituted and celebrated right from on set and with a celebration record of over three thousand years. By Luke's record, at birth Christ's attraction was ever swelling-from Angels to shepherds, and from shepherds to the heavenly hosts. In some quarters beyond worship and praise, it provoked jealousy, generated hatred and brewed secret plots. Christmas is the attraction and celebration of both the believing and unbelieving world.

A New Year awaits to bless us as a church
Text
Joshua 7:16-22
Subtopics
But there is hidden sin in the camp
This must be traced out
The price must be paid
New life comes only with atonement

It is in our nature as humans that we seek a hiding from others when we have done something wrong (sin). The guilt of our wrong may be there in us, but our desire to avoid owning up or admitting our responsibility for the wrong becomes stronger than that of bowing down in guilt and repenting. We remain uncomfortable with the guilt, but keep wishing it away hoping that it be concealed forever. Read more

Ever be ready with your defense
Compromise is dangerous-It destroys the gospel

A certain writer/Author, Richard Warmbrand in his book “Tortured for Christ” said, “What a person really believes is not what he says in his creeds, but what he is willing to die for.” He went on further to say that “The odds are that you will never be called upon to die for Christ. But the question is that if you are not willing to die for him, what are the chances that you are really living for him? Read More

Preacher! Let the text Speak

Expository Preaching the Langham Way
