FROM THE DIRECTOR,CHILDREN MINISTRY
It is another time the Lord has given to us out of his great love and grace. It could be a historical year that we have never experienced such in the world. The Brigade fraternity is not left behind in this quagmire. However, we have a great God who also does great acts beyond any other opposing power. We must learn to trust him the more than ever before for in such a time he can be found. Just as Jesus told Paul that, “My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” 2 Corinthians 12:9. This is an assurance that we can be able to continue with life no matter how hard it may seem to the individual, family, Ministry and the Nation.
It is also a high time we learn and take our position in the Lord. Our theme this year reminds us how to realize that we are vessel loved by their owner. This means we have a special position before our God. We are not kept or left to mix with the reject or even the wasted broken items, but we have been separated from all those and set aside for special use. I trying to imagine a vessel that is important but due to lack of self-realization it mixes itself with dirty, wasted, rejected items and just feel comfortable. That is surely abnormal and it should not be allowed in any of our lives.
In John 10:10 “the devil come to steal and kill and destroy. Never allow yourself or your gifts and love to be stolen by the devil; he may intend to take away your, joy, peace, obedience, patience, morals, faith zeal, and commitment to Christ. When you lose these things, you miss your value and destiny. Instead of being an asset, you become a liability refuse this in Jesus name.
God is ready to use you just as he used Gideon. Though he struggled with his identity first, after, he accepted to be a loved vessel for use to deliver the Israelite. You are the one to be used by God to deliver your School, family, parents, brother/sisters, village, town etc. Jesus came that we may have life and have it more abundant. Be ready to receive life and commissioning to serve in the masters house.
