Who is like unto Thee O Lord! Who is like unto Thee O Lord!  among the gods Who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful Praising, doing wonders alleluia!// O lord my God how excellent is Thy Name in O the earth, how excellent is Thy Name.

Gracious Father we thank You, we blessed Your Holy Name, thank for a new week, a new day, we worship You, glory adoration belong to You alone in Jesus Name. have Your way O God! have Your way in our lives and ministry, have Your way in our career and families in Jesus Name.

Beloved, how are you? Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our God is good, our God is good, our God is good, He is so good. Our God is good, our God is good, our God is good, He is so good.

Yes! our God is good is good to you and me in Jesus Name. What shall we render to Him for all the good things He has done for us, amen alleluia!!!

Beloved, the teaching before us today is like a mirror we will have in front of us looking at ourselves at the end of this year that is what can be said of us in Jesus Name. We will be like Jesus, living and walking like Him, imitating Him in our thoughts and action.

We must move from one glory to glory, we must be Him, Jesus is our Mentor, our High Priest, our King, He is Lord and Saviour. He is our All in All. Praise the Lord!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you want be a true imitator of Christ? Do you want to inherit the kingdom of God promised us at the end of our journey here on earth? Do you want be impart the world for Christ?

Beloved, is so important that you behold the picture of what you should look like at the end of this year early enough so as to know where and where to walk on. Praise the Lord!

The Lord will guide you, He will lead you, He will be with you. Alleluia somebody! Beloved, we are nothing aside God, and anything we do aside God is vain and when something is done “in vain,” it is done without meaningfully fulfilling the intended goal. Whatever it may be, it is a fruitless endeavour that is done without true satisfaction.

Putting these two side by side “glory/vain.” You can work hard to build a house, or stay up all night to guard a city, or get up at the crack of dawn to go to work, but if it is done in vain it really gets you nowhere unlike when you do all in the Name (glory) of the Lord.

Doing something in vain is just about the last thing on earth you want to do, because the effort robs you of the strength and gifts by wasting them on misguided efforts.

In Ps 127:1-2 tells us that doing things apart from God’s help is a vain endeavour. Anything done apart from God, even if it looks good, is hallow empty in reality. Further, one might add that the person who thinks they can do anything apart from God is a vain person. Vain people overestimate their gifts and abilities and waste them in vain endeavours done apart from the approval and help of God. Vain people, if they think of God at all, are far out ahead of God.

Humble people, in contrast, know the futility of vanity and vain efforts. In the great scheme of things, their motto is;”not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6). The humble make a point of being in touch with God, consulting Him, seeking His will, and asking for His strength and ability. The humble are careful not to get out ahead of God.

The life we have been given by God is too short to be wasted in vanity of vain efforts. Consult God, and you sleep better at night because you know God is at work for you. Amen!!!

Jesus was humble therefore he fulfills purpose of His coming. Beloved, if we must fulfill purpose; we must imitate Jesus. Jesus did nothing in vain but for every step He took, He made sure that God is glorified. He never engages in thing by His own accord despite that He is God. He does what His Father is doing (we discussed this last week)

Jesus was never vain in actions neither are we suppose to be, we must be like Jesus, He is the Author and Finisher of our faith.  Praise the Lord!

Beloved, come along with us for more discoveries:               

“And they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” Acts 4:13

A Christian should be a striking likeness of Jesus Christ. You have read lives of Christ, beautifully and eloquently written, but the best life of Christ is His living biography, written out in the words and actions of His people.

If we were what we profess to be, and what we should be, we should be pictures of Christ; yea, such striking likenesses of Him, that the world would not have to hold us up by the hour together, and say, “Well, it seems somewhat of a likeness;” but they would, when they once beheld us, exclaim, “He has been with Jesus; he has been taught of Him; he is like Him; he has caught the very idea of the holy Man of Nazareth, and he works it out in his life and every-day actions.”

A Christian should be like Christ in his boldness. Never blush to own your religion; your profession will never disgrace you: take care you never disgrace that. Be like Jesus, very valiant for your God. Imitate Him in your loving spirit; think kindly, speak kindly, and do kindly, that men may say of you, “He has been with Jesus.”

Imitate Jesus in His holiness. Was He zealous for His Master? So be you; ever go about doing good. Let not time be wasted: it is too precious. Was He self-denying, never looking to His own interest? Be the same. Was He devout? Be you fervent in your prayers. Had He deference to His Father’s will? So submit yourselves to Him. Was He patient? So learn to endure.

And best of all, as the highest portraiture of Jesus, try to forgive your enemies, as He did; and let those sublime words of your Master, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do,” always ring in your ears. Forgive, as you hope to be forgiven. Heap coals of fire on the head of your foe by your kindness to him. Good for evil, recollect, is godlike. Be godlike, then; and in all ways and by all means, so live that all may say of you, “He has been with Jesus.”

Please join me to sing this song:    Sweet Jesus, Sweet Jesus how wonderful You are, You are Precious than the morning Star, You are fairer, more fairer than the Lily that grow by the way, You are Precious, more Precious than gold. Amen!!!!!!!!!!! Praise Master Jesus!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes! May the attributes reveled about Jesus be same with us in Jesus Name. Beloved, we must listen and be guided by God even as He has promised us, remember Jesus said He does nothing without His Father likewise we must do nothing aside Jesus. Anything done aside God is “vain” and you want to do that, everything we do must be to the glory of God. That is our call this year, may God help you and I to fulfill destiny as Jesus did in Jesus Name. Amen! Amen!! Amen!!!

Praise the Lord, faithful is our God! Beloved, may we walk in the path directed us by God Himself in Jesus Name. As we go through this week, we will do nothing in ‘vain’ but all to the ‘glory’ of God Amen!!!!!!!!

On this note we declare this week open in the Name of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and we will come back at the end with greater testimonies in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord
