Brothers and sisters in southern Nigeria enjoyed the first festive divine service conducted by District Apostle Michael Ehrich on Sunday 13th January 2019, via a live broadcast from Backnang, Germany.
The District Apostle drew a text word from Isaiah 33:6, ‘Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is His treasure’.
In his message, the District Apostle said in life every one strives for stability, however, this is not the case everywhere as a result of political, economic, social and religious conflicts and differences. He went further to elaborate the factors that make for stability which includes peace and security, reserves, strong community and keeping reliable promises.
In the spiritual sense, he said our security comes from the assurance of Jesus to his followers as referenced from the book of Matthew, “I am with you until the close of age” and also in His declaration, “All power is given to me in Heaven and on earth”.
He further said our fellowship with one another refers to strong community and the assurance of Jesus’ eminent return as a reliable promise.
More so, he said wisdom is recognizing God’s plan of salvation and preserving the fear of God in our lives.
Finally, District Apostle Ehrich said the Lord is with us in our personal situation and this is our stability and security as in Jesus we fine true peace.
