SUNDAY 2nd JULY, 2017 - COVENANT FAMILY DAY
"Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain." ► [Psalm 127:1]
Psalm 127: A Song of Degrees::
Psalm 127 was penned down with the family in mind. Sub-titled: "A Song of Degrees", this Psalm is one of the 15 Psalms in the bible with this sub-title and the fact that it sits at the centre of the other 15 is a clear reminder of the centrality and importance of the family. This assertion is evident in the fact that a nation is only as strong as the families that make up that nation; just as a church only as strong as the families that make it up.
Of the 15 Psalms with the sub-titles -"Songs of degrees", four of them were authored by Kind David while the rest appears to have been authored by Solomon. Solomon, the son of King David, was a great king and the one selected by God to build the temple in the Old Testament (1 Chronicles 28:6). Solomon therefore had understanding of the fact that building required hard work - the same hard work that is required to build a business, have a good marriage; and to have a good family. In the temple project, Solomon was blessed with Hiram as the general contractor. Hiram was very capable contractor(1 Kings 5) and Solomon knew that except a good contractor was involved in the building of a marriage and/or family, that marriage (or family) was a disaster in the making.
Again, in order to build a house, Solomon equally knew the importance of an adequate foundation. He understood the importance of a good, godly foundation in a marriage. Jesus builds the best foundation ever. (1 Corinthians 3:11). The best part of it all is that that the foundation Jesus builds will add great walls that will give an amazing structure to your home.
This Sunday, God will take charge of your family:
As a good building contractor, Jesus is involved in three very important building projects today viz:
☑ He is involved in building a home for our future; a place called heaven.
He said, "I go to prepare a place for you..." (John 14:2-3)
☑ He is involved in building a place for our faith, the church.
He said, "On this rock I'll build my church." (Matthew 16:18)
☑ He is also interested in building a home for your family.
"Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it."(Ps. 127:1)
So regardless of what is going on in your family and the needs that you desire divine attention, heaven is set to adjust the tension in your home and give you a turn-around change of story.
Jesus is a master designer. He envisioned the home and He alone can help you build it and we have it on good authority that after this service, the prodigals will return home and every attendee will take home God's blueprint for a satisfying home.
This Service will be the one chance you have been waiting for, for a change of story
This service also doubles as the Special monthly Thanksgiving, Children and Marriage Dedication Service for the month of June 2017.
Come expectant of a touch from God and be sure to invite and also reach out to the unsaved and bring them along for the service together with your friends and family.
The service times are 9:00am (1st Service) and 10:45am (2nd Service).
Jesus is Lord!!!
