Mark and the LightHouse Young Adults took the whole of our service today. Mark spoke on how is it possible for a young man or woman or indeed how can any of us keep ourselves pure in a world which actively promotes explicit sexuality especially through the media. There is a pause at the beginning of the message as Mark pauses for the fellowship to find his opening text in the Bible.
The world has enough bad news and Pastor Kevin shows us from scripture that we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to give people good news, news of hope and a future for all men in all situations. When we are out and meet people we don't know where they are but a word from us is life and makes all the difference.
Pastor gives a sobering word its not our singing or our worship that is going to change lives. Its only by going out and speaking life to people, Kingdom Life and for that Pastor shows us how we need to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The early disciples were hiding behind locked doors until the Holy Spirit came upon them and then 3000 were saved in a day.
Jesus said that we might have life and life abundantly. He said the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy. The enemy is out to destroy the church by distorting the gospel message in this day and age it is vital we know the truth of what the bible says
Pastor Kevin speaks on what it means to be under authority. When the Centurion said to Jesus you need only to send the word and I know it will be done. Jesus marvelled that He had not found such faith before. The Centurion understood authority and we need to so that when we speak we can have no hesitation that heaven will back us up, because Jesus would never tell us to do something and then not back us.
