Song Of The Week

We invite you to continue worshipping God in song during the week with our Song of the Week "IN JESUS NAME"


Last Sunday, we looked at REVIVAL – UNITE AND FIGHT from Nehemiah 4. I shared briefly about the privilege of having visited the Martin Luther King (Jnr) Centre and being exposed to many aspects of the great civil rights activist’s life.  Dr. King stood firm and unswervingly against injustice and was radically committed to the ways and means of Jesus Christ - non-violent direct action manifested in civil disobedience where the laws of man violated the laws of God. Despite his middle-class status and excellent education, he did not distance himself from the belittlement of racism which affected his black brothers, sisters and also, himself. King suffered persecution from many quarters, including the church.  His famous “I have a dream” speech reveals a man who believed God could and would change things if people played their part in the fulfilment of God’s purposes. He paid the ultimate price for his beliefs.

Like Dr. King, Nehemiah was also radically committed to fulfilling the call and purposes of God upon his life in his generation.  Though he lived in the lap of luxury as cupbearer to the King of Persia, he was nevertheless deeply concerned and moved about the condition and welfare of his fellow Jews who had survived the exile.  As we read and understand the conditions facing Nehemiah and his nation, we recognize our own condition as a people in Jamaica and key areas of our national life that are experiencing severe breakdown and in need of rebuilding.                                                                           Read more...

The Apostle Paul teaches us that we are engaged in a warfare against spiritual forces and as such, we should put on the whole armour of God in order to stand against the enemy’s schemes. (Eph. 6: 11& 12)

May I encourage us to heed Paul’s instructions and take to heart the words of Nehemiah:-

Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.” Nehemiah 4: 12b

In Christ's love,
