THE WAY WE FORGIVE OTHERS

It was a clear sign of the amazing signs that were to follow as The SCOAN Choir’s praise and worship caused an outpouring of God’s Spirit upon congregants, who let go of their inhibitions as they danced in holy excitement, grateful to be seeing the end of year under God’s guidance.

In a message for the season and for all time, Prophet TB Joshua exhorted congregants on the virtue of doing unto others as they would want God to do for them. He read from Luke 11:4 and Matthew 25:45. While the first passage talks about asking for God’s forgiveness after forgiving others, the second one urges Christians to try and meet their neighbours’ needs in the assurance that they are doing so for God. As such, he urged congregants to adopt unconditional love as a way of life: “The way I love you is the same way I will be loved. The way I help you is the same way I will be helped. The way I release you is the same way I will be released. The way I restore you is the same way I will be restored. The way I care for you is the same way I will be cared for.”

In another practical message, Prophet Chris taught the church: “LET YOUR CONSCIENCE BE YOUR GUIDE.” The message dwelt on the need for Christians to realise that no one is perfect, as all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. Taking his proof text from Proverbs 28:13 – Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy”– Prophet Chris showed that trying to cover up a sin or imperfection will only lead to more sin and imperfection, as was the case with David in 2 Samuel 11. In the words of prophet Chris, “It is not that children of God do not make mistakes or do the wrong thing but when they do their heart is troubled because it is not their will to commit sin.” He therefore advised congregants not to ignore their conscience.

Indeed, the Lord moved mightily on the day as many received healing, deliverance and salvation as God’s servants prayed with the people in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
