God's Word with Pastor Opeyemi Ajayi
People are uncomfortable with language, which suggests hierarchies and power relationships, however we are happier with the language of equality.
None of us is entirely happy with the thought of been a prisoner of a servant.
These are words which have few honorable associations for us.
So what is the mystery which Christ proclaims ?
It is precisely the liberty we most desire, a liberty which is a mystery or infinite treasure because it makes us all members of the body of Christ.
In Christ, we are offered the true equality of belonging.
These days it is very difficult for people to feel that they belong to anything.
We are deeply scarred by the kinds of greed or apathy which set whole communities against each other.
Let us pray for global healing between nations, which have made servants of each other and prisoners of debt; let us pray for world unity.
The dominant philosophy of the present time is '' What I possess is mine to use as I wish''.
The enormous wealth of the King were handed back to God. God made the provision for the King's wealth.
This example, has to a great extent influenced people to do same.
Our houses of worship ought to attract the most suitable and the best.
For they thought to say something about the grandeur and majesty of God.
King David in his times, asserted that building temples is no more important than being the kind of person whose life reflects the glory of God.
Indeed, there is no place where God's kingdom cannot be found at work, home, leisure and the Church among others.
Human experiences of life cannot be divorced from the divine. God is involved in the whole of it-happy and sad, good and bad.
