Today @ Healingsprings fellowship

For the Jewish authorities, the embarrassment, excruciating pain, and suffering that hallmark’s crucifixion was meant to bring the activities of a fringe group, following a little known Rabbi called Jesus to an end.

For the followers of Jesus, his arrest and subsequent death would have meant that their messianic hopes had been dashed. God had not shown up to vindicate their leader, and only hope against the scourge of the Roman authorities, and the oppression of their corrupt and short sighted religious leaders.

Jesus had died only because he was “a friend of sinners”. For the Jewish leaders, he was messing up their religious and philosophical foundations. Sinners should be Exiled from the community, in other instances, killed.

But who were these sinners? Those within their community that didn’t measure up to their incredibly high standards. The lepers, widows, orphans, poor, Samaritans, divorced, and those in debt. Even amongst these people, not all believed in Jesus. A lot had given up all hopes, hence the reason why they chose Barabbas instead of Jesus. The wealthy and those from nobility were righteous. To a very large extent this is still the case. The time and setting might have changed, but the mind set is still the same.

His followers were lost completely unsure of their future until his appearance at various locations, following his resurrection.

To this end, I will be exploring Jesus’ Crucifixion with a view to recapture it’s essence, and strengthen us as we anticipate his Second Coming.

This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship

The incarnation provided the platform for the inauguration of God’s Kingdom by Jesus.

Through his modelling of God’s Kingdom, Jesus provides ideas for the work of the Church, till the fullness of His Kingdom is manifested in His Second Coming.
As we study, meditate and extrapolate from his teaching, and model his lifestyle, we in turn become shapers of our communities and world at large, through our various vocations. Hence we are co-labourers with him (1 Cor.3:9).
This is what Paul meant when he stated that we spread the fragrance of the knowledge of God (2 Cor. 2:14).
Join us this Sunday for: I and the Father are One (John 10:30), as we draw inspiration from The Beatitudes.

Living On Purpose

LIVING ON PURPOSE: Rightly Diving the Word of Truth (2 Tim 2:15)
In 1744, Alexander Webster and Robert Wallace (both Presbyterian Clergymen in Scotland), decided to set up a life-insurance fund for the widows and orphans of dead clergymen. 

So they proposed that each church minister contribute a portion of their income into an investment fund, and if a minister died, his widow would receive dividends from the funds, thereby allowing her to live comfortably for the rest of her life.

But in order to determine how much can be paid-in to keep their obligations, these men had to be able to provide answers to the following questions:

  • how many ministers are likely to die each year?
  • how many widows and orphans are these ministers likely to leave behind?

  • and by how many years are the widows likely to outlive their husbands?

WHAT DO YOU THINK THEY DID?

First, let us see what they did not do. They did not:

● hold prayer meetings, perhaps to ‘bind the demon of death’

● hold theological debates on poverty 

● embark on a research on the work of ancient theologians

WHAT THEY DID…

  1. They contacted Colin Maclaurin (Professor of mathematics, University of Edinburgh)
  • They collected data on ages at which people died and used it to calculate how many ministers are likely to pass away in any given year

  • They applied recent breakthrough in statistics

  • Using mathematical modelling, they realised that:

    • on average there were 930 living Scots clergymen at any given moment
  • 27 ministers are likely to die each year,

  • 18 of them would be survived by a widow,

  • 5 of them who had no widow – would leave orphaned children,

  • 2 of those survived by widows would be outlived by children from previous marriages who had not yet reached the age of 16

  • And most importantly, how much time a widow is likely to draw dividends before passing away or remarrying.

    Dear friends, these were the early days of the investment instrument known today as SCOTTISH WIDOWS.

    Biblical reflection:
    – 1 Samuel 13:19-22

    • 2 Peter 1:3

    To a blessed week!

    This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship!

    Built To Last.

    In a world obsessed with Pop Culture and excesses, the term success conjures a whole new meaning. 

    Jesus faced the same challenges in his era. For instance, when the elites ridiculed his perspective on financial stewardship his answer was, 

    ‘for what is prized by human beings is an abomination in the sight of God.’ (Luke 16:15b).

    In the same vein the preacher drew a sound conclusion to his thoughts with these words: 

    ‘Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all.’ (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

    Therefore our love for God and humanity makes wealth a force for good. 

    To this end tomorrow’s lecture is entitled: Built to Last.

    During the course of my talk I will explore 5 Pillars of Success, and 5 mind sets that can drown our dreams.
    (3:00-4:30)pm

    This Sunday’s lecture | Call of Duty: we build together

    In the 31st chapter of the book of Exodus, we are introduced to a God that: calls, equips, and linkup people with unique talents and skills; towards a common purpose. 

    This pattern provides us with a blueprint which can be used in the fulfilment God’s purpose. One that provides leaders and disciples with: wisdom, knowledge and understanding for everyday life and the work of the ministry. 

    So join us tonight: (6:00-7:30) pm
