“Promote God’s righteousness everywhere, for the end of all things is near.”
Promote His Righteousness
“For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south” (Psalm 75:6).
Pastor Chris explained the significance of this message in Monday’s Rhapsody of Realities – “When God puts you in a particular job or business, His interest isn’t about the office or your designation. What matters to Him is how effectively you’re using your office to promote His righteousness. He wants you passionate for the Gospel, and the establishment of His Kingdom in the hearts of men and nations of the earth.”
“Everywhere you are, be busy for the Lord. Stand for Him. You’re His ambassador, and a minister of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:20-21). What counts the most in your life is what you do with the Gospel, for the salvation of men, regardless of your vocation.”
Colossians 4:2 says, ’Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving’.
‘Year of Preparation’ Begins with an Exciting ‘Month of Celebration’
When Pastor Chris declared January to be the ‘Month of Celebration’ at the Global Communion Service on Sunday, it was met with a burst of excitement from the LoveWorld community. Hosted from the LoveWorld Crusade Grounds, the special service was broadcast live to a global audience via the LoveWorld Networks and various internet platforms.
LoveWorld CEO, the esteemed Pastor Deola Phillips welcomed the global congregation to the special service. She reiterated the Word of the Year for 2021, the ‘Year of Preparation’ by the Man of God, Pastor Chris, emphasizing the four key areas of preparation identified by him. Namely, prepare your heart to serve the Lord, secondly, make preparations for the house of God, thirdly prepare with the Gospel, and last but by no means least, prepare to meet God. The CEO urged the participants to prepare their hearts to receive deeper insights into the Word of the Year
Naming January as the ‘Month of Celebration’ was unexpected as in previous years, this was traditionally a time of meditation and discussions on the message of the year. The global audience joyfully received the Word and are preparing for a celebration throughout the month and beyond.
In the exclusive global Communion Service, Pastor Chris and the esteemed CEO, LoveWorld Inc., Pastor Deola Phillips, were joined by other senior Pastors: Pastor Lanre Alabi, Pastor Yemisi Kudehinbu, and Pastor Emeka Eze, all taking turns to share messages of the year.
The glorious service continued with a beautiful rendition of the LoveWorld Anthem by Pastor Saki and the praise team and a heartfelt session of prayer of thanksgiving led by the esteemed Pastor Emeka Eze. God’s people prayed earnestly expressing thanks to God for granting the Church utter victory in 2020 as well as for alignment with the Word of the Year 2021, being the ‘Year of Preparation’.
Depend on God
Reading from Psalm 127:1, Pastor Chris warned the global audience that unless the Lord prepares them, their efforts would only prove futile. “Let the Word of God build you up; you can’t prepare yourself without it,” he remarked.
“Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.”
The Global Communion Service further positioned God’s people for a glorious journey in the new year, 2021. With ready hearts to receive, the congregation anticipates further the ministration of the Word by the Man of God, Pastor Chris.
