*Be Polite! Speak Graceful Words! - Pastor Chris* "Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned [as it were] with salt, [so that you may never be at a loss] to know how you ought to answer anyone [who puts a question to you]" *(Colossians 4:6 AMPC)* Being polite is not a sign of weakness, but an outworking of the excellence of God in you. In James 3:13-14, the Bible says, *_"Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth."_* In other words, when you use the right words to address others, you're actually displaying the wisdom of God that's in you. But bitterness in the heart of man will produce harsh words and abusive communication. Let your words reflect the presence of the Spirit of God that lives in you. Colossians 4:6 says, *_"Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not to put them down, not cut them out"_* (MSG). Let your words uplift, encourage, inspire, soothe and build. Don't utter words that could inflict pain on others or stir up strife among people. The Bible says in 2 Timothy 2:24, *_"And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient."_* See others with the eyes of God and address them that way. Be humble in your communication (James 4:6). Don't use insulting words to address people and don't raise your voice against them. Live the higher life of good communication, and you'll see the hand of God move in your behalf. #cephzone2 #ippc2018

MID- YEAR THANKSGIVING HIGHLIGHTS!!! "Oh that men would praise the lord, for his goodness and for his wonderful works to the children of men" psalm 107:21. The Thanksgiving service was indeed a time of heartfelt worship and expressions of gratitude to God for all the supernatural achievements in the first half of the year... Exhorting words from the Esteemed Zonal pastor, pastor Linda Okocha left everyone with a thankful heart as they recounted the goodness of the lord. -"The greater blessings are spiritual not physical. - Also thank God for the troubles and challenges, sometimes you have to welcome trouble so you can have bigger testimonies. -The secret of overcoming challenges is laughing at them. - One of the things to thank God for today is for having a mouth to declare words to frame your life and your future. The bible says that God satisfies your mouth with good things. As long as you have your mouth and your knees, you can never be disadvantaged." ...and we all gave offerings of thanksgiving and declared God's marvellous works with rejoicing. #MidYearThanksgivingService #CEPHZONE2
MORE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE THANKSGIVING SERVICE TODAY... They all came with their prayer of thanksgiving, praise and worship of thanksgiving, Testimonies of Thanks giving and Offering of Thanksgiving. #midYearThanksgivingService #CephZone2
DAILY NUGGETS *LIVE SUPERNATURALLY – PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME D.Sc D.D* But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). The Lord Jesus, when He walked the earth, lived by supernatural principles. He lived without a sense of lack or need and was always in charge of situations and circumstances. For example, when He fed the five thousand with five loaves of bread and two fishes, He took the loaves and fishes and blessed them (Matthew 14:17-20). The Greek word used for “blessed” is “eulogeo?,” meaning that He invoked the ability to prosper into the bread and the fishes; it was an invocation of power for the bread and the fishes to multiply. As Christians, we’re to follow the example of the Lord and live in this world by supernatural principles. The Apostle Paul, in our opening verse, says, “…my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” You’d notice, he didn’t say, “Our God will supply all our need”; rather, he said, “My God shall supply all your need.” He excluded himself. Why? He was talking to spiritual babes or sense-ruled believers. Talking about himself earlier, in the thirteenth verse of the same chapter, he said, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” He didn’t say “we can” but “I can do all things…”; he had no sense of lack or need. What a mentality! You may be a church pastor, for instance, and may find yourself in a situation where you’re looking at men because you need money for some projects in the house of God; begin to think differently. Whatever may be the need, have a different mentality. Understand, first and foremost, that the Church of Jesus Christ is a spiritual, supernatural body; therefore, whatever need there is must be met supernaturally. It makes no difference how much you collect in the offering; you can do what Jesus did! We’ve got the power to invoke the Spirit of God into the offerings; into whatever has been brought to the house of God for God’s use. You say, “In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I invoke into these offerings the power to increase; I command you to multiply in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, for the things that we need to do. You’ll be more than enough in Jesus’ Name.” The same thing goes for you as an individual; learn to invoke the blessings of increase on your finances and you’ll be amazed at the supernatural results that’ll follow. #cephzone2
*⭐A Refreshing Thought For You Today ⭐* Monday, 16 July 2018 Jesus made eternal life possible. He said in *John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”* The question is, do you believe in Jesus Christ? If you do, then you have eternal life. You’re not going to get it when you get to heaven; *you have it now; it’s your present-hour possession.* When you receive Christ, you receive eternal life; you receive the divine life and nature of God. You’re awakened to the fatherhood of God; you become one with Him. Hallelujah 🙌🙌 #Rhapsodyinspirationalthoughtstoday✍️ #EternalLifeThroughJesusChrist
