For God so loved the world that he GAVE HIS one and only Son… John 3:16
Giving is nature to us in this ministry. “It is more blessed to GIVE, than to receive” (Acts 20: 35). We commit to GIVING out our time, our labor, our thanks, our possession, etc.
All our GIVINGS are done for a cheerful and merry heart; and without compulsion as commanded by Him. “Each of you should give as you have decided in your heart to give. You should not be sad when you give because you feel forced to give. God loves a person who give happily.”(2Cor9:7).
We embrace the word INTEGRITY.
May INTEGRITY and HONESTY protect me, for my hope in you” (Ps 25:21)
“Yes what joy for those whose record the lord has cleared of sin, whose lives are lived in complete honesty” (ps32:2). We know that Success and lofty heights will be attained and preserved by INTEGRITY. “And my HONESTY will testify for me in future….. “(Gen 30:33).
“Who so ever walk in INTEGRITY shall be saved; but he that is perverted in his double ways, shall fall in one of the” (Prov 28:18).
“Show proper respect to everyone….” (1Pet 2: 17).
Honoring one, honoring all is our slogan.”…in honor, preferring one another? (Rom 12:10). RESPECT is therefore food to us .it keeps us together on the right frequency. “Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory but in humility consider others than yourselves” (Phil 2:3).
We adopt reciprocal RESPECT, but we give priority to RESPECT for the elder, and revere your God. I am the Lord “(Lev 19:32). *see also (1 Tim 5: 1&2).
We give respect to leaders and all God’s Elect. “Now we ask you brethren to RESPECT those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord, and admonish you. Hold them in highest regard of love because of their work, Live in peace with each other” (1 Thessalonian 5:17).
“Spiritual leaders who direct the affairs of the church well, deserve to be respected twice as much especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. (1Thess5:17).
Above all we RESPECT (revere) God. “You, who fear the Lord praise Him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor Him! REVERE Him, all descendants of Israel”. (Psalm22:23). “Let all the earth fear the Lord: Let all the people of the world RESPECT Him”. (Ps 33:8).
Respecting God bring about honor in our own lives. “Showing RESPECT to the Lord will make you wish, and being humble will you honor”. (Proverbs 15:33).
“Greater LOVE has no one that this that He lay down His friends” (1Jn 15:13).
“By this we know Love, because he laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 Jn 3:16).
We know of God’s LOVE for us and therefore we LOVE Him and LOVE one another.
“LOVE the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength ‘ (Deut. 6:8) “Keep on LOVING each other as brothers” (Heb 13:1), “We prove our knowledge of God by LOVING one another” (1 John 4: 7&8). “Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one for your people, but LOVE your neighbor as yourself” (Lev 19:18).
Sincere LOVE is our watchword.
“LOVE must be sincere” (Romans 12:9). We emulate Christ by taking LOVE even to the ‘unlovable’. “But God demonstrates his own LOVE towards us in that while still sinners, Christ died for Us” (Rom 5:8) “…because the LOVE of God has been poured out in our hearth by the Holy spirit who was given to us”(Romans 5:5b) “…over all virtues put on LOVE, which binds them all together in perfect unity” (Col 3:14). “The greatest of these LOVE (1Cor 13b).
Owe no one anything except to LOVE one another, for he who LOVES another has fulfilled the law (Rom 13:8).
“For I also am a man of authority….” (Matthew 8:9a) “Therefore SUBMIT to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you (Jam 4:7). We are women under authority, therefore we SUBMIT to God.
“For the husband is the head of the wife so as Christ is the head of the church…“(Eph 5:23a).
We flex no muscles with our husbands, and there is no competition between us. Each woman gladly SUBMITS to her husband. “Wives, SUBMIT to husbands, as is fitting in the Lord” (Col. 3:18).
The goal of our exploits is to make our husbands proud.
“The heart of her husband safely trust her; so he will have no lack of gain. Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also and he praises her.”(Prov 31:11,28).
We are SUBMITTED to the leadership of the land. We are law abiding in every nation where we find ourselves. “Therefore SUBMIT yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord Sake, whether to the king as supreme” (1pet 2:13).
Our SUBMISSION is all encompassing hence we SUBMIT to elders. “Likewise you younger people, SUBMIT yourself to your elders’ (1pet 5:5a).
Yes all of you be SUBMISSIVE to one another, and be clothed in humility for God resist d but gives grace to humble.”(1pet 5: 5b).
“Make every effort to live in peace with all men and be HOLY, without HOLINESS no one will see the lord” (Heb 12:14).
Eternity is our Ultimate goal; hence follow HOLINESS in its entirety.
“For God has not called us unto uncleanliness but unto HOLINESS (1Thess 4:7). It is written “Be ye HOLY for I am HOLY” (1pet 1:16). As He which hath called you is HOLY, so be ye HOLY in all manner conversation” (1pet 1:15).
“Then each of you will control your body live in HOLINESS and honor”. (1Thess 4:4)
The older women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh HOLINESS; not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things: (Titus2:3).
We live HOLY; we project HOLINESS and teach HOLINESS!
“O Lord, our lord, How EXCELLENT is your name in all the earth!” (Ps 8:9). We serve an EXCELLENT God.
Then God said, Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness…”(Gen 1: 26a) Since we are made in His likeness we have no choice than to radiate EXCELLENCE.
“But now He has obtained a more EXCELLENT ministry…” (Heb. 8:6); “having become so much better that the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more EXCELLENT name than they.”(Heb1:14)
“Your attitude should be that of Christ” (Phil2:5).
On this note, we chose EXCELLENCE! In our days EXCELLENCE will distinguish us even as it did Daniel.
“Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and the satraps, because an EXCELLENT Spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm” (Dan 6:3).
In this ministry, EXCELLENCE is culture. “An EXCELLENT wife is the crown of her husband, but she who causes shame is like rottenness in his bones” (Pro 12:4).
The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the EXCELLENCE of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, the EXCELLENCY of our God” (Isa 35:2).
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor, he has sent me to heal the broken hearted, to proclaim LIBERTY to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound” (Isa 61:1).
In righteousness you shall be established: you shall be far from oppression; for you shall not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you” (Isa 54:14).
We therefore walk in consciousness of our FREEDOM. We do not go about like one who is in bondage because we are not. We resist every oppression and captivity of the enemy. We say NO! to bondage, spirit, soul and body. “… if the Son makes to FREE, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:36).
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the spirit of the lord is there is LIBERTY!” (2 Cor. 3:17). Nothing comes in between us and God; and His purpose for our lives.
“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, Abba Father” (Rom 8:15).
“Stand therefore in LIBERTY wherewith Christ has made us free and not be entangled again with the yoke of bondage” (Gal 5:1)
It is often said ‘People don’t want to know how much you own or know, that only want to know how much you CARE’.
Therefore as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly beloved. Clothe yourselves with compassion…. (Col 3: 12).
Like the Samaritans in the parable of the good Samaritan, (Luke 10:30-35), we go the extra mile in CARING for another.
“Be kind and compassionate to one another” (Eph. 4:32). Sharing one another’s burden, being involved in one another’s issues, celebrating one another’s trophies and joy generally being there for one another are our ethics.
“Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep” (Rom 12:15)
“For the ZEAL for your house consumes me” (Ps 69:9a). It’s our lifestyle to put PASSION in all that we believe and do.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord, not for men” (Col 3:23).
We engage every purpose, endeavor, mission, project, goal, etc. with strong ENTHUSIASM. Never be lacking in Zeal, but keep your spiritual FERVOR, serving the Lord” (Rom 12:11).
“WE GO FOR IT”
