Pastor Taiwo Odukoya @Sunday Service
Christians have been urged to be conscious of the presence of the Holy Ghost within them wherever they find themselves. Pastor Taiwo Odukoya gave this injunction on Sunday June 9 as he continued his teaching on the Holy Spirit.
Taking his text from Acts 1:1-8, Pastor Taiwo noted that being conscious of the presence of the Holy Spirit helps the Christian to live a victorious life. He explained that every Christian, upon being born again, has the Holy Spirit in him but would have to put the Spirit to work to fully enjoy His leadership.
He noted that it is with the help of the Holy Spirit a believer can crush the obstacles of life and be a witness for Christ. He also said that the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer is all-encompassing and must not be restricted to spiritual life alone. God, he said, is interested in the minutest details of a Christian’s life.
He therefore urged all not to allow the gifts that the Holy Spirit has endowed them with to lay dormant but to put them to use in order to amplify them.
“THE HOLY SPIRIT, OUR ENABLER”
Pastor Taiwo @ Thursday Showers
Dwelling on the theme scripture for the month (Acts 1:8), Pastor Taiwo at the June 6 Thursday Showers service spoke on the manifestation of the power of God as experienced by the early Christians, when they gathered on the day of Pentecost. He said that the greatest manifestation of God’s power happens when brethren gather, so believers should never forsake such gatherings.
Pastor Taiwo emphasised the need for Christians, no matter their profession or vocation, to always be a witness for Christ. “Your vocation should not hinder you from being a witness, whether you are an engineer, doctor or artisan,” he said. He stated that every believer needs the power of the Holy Spirit to be an effective witness and that the same power gives capacity for a successful Christian life.
He assured the congregation that God will not demand from them what He has not given the capacity for. “In the place of our assignment, power is made available. We need the Holy Spirit to be the best of whatever God has called us to be,” he said.
