How Long Will You Be Able To Hold On Before Your Faith
Fails You When The Challenges Of Life Come?
THE PERIL OF PREMATURE INDEPENDENCE.
The cause problem in the life of many ministers of God is that of premature independence from the ministry where
they served. There are too many general overseers that are still supposed to be under the tutelage of their senior pastors. Many of us go out to early and is creating such a
problem for their lives, family and their congregation.
“.A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven”. (Jn.3:27)
THE PERIL OF COMPLACENCY IN SPIRITUAL
GROWTH. Often, many ministers of God has the erroneous be, Ife that they have become so experienced in spiritual matters that they don’t need to grow any longer. The day you start having that feeling is the day you gradually start dying in ministry. You must keep growing because there is still so
much to learn from your master Jesus.
complacency will make you to lose your guard in the spirit.
Apostle Paul said;
ABIDING Grace Publications
In the last One year, two new books were published by the ministry. The books are STRICTLY FOR THE PASTOR’S WIFE and MATTERS ARISING IN MINISTRY.
The first book which came as an inspiration from God to deal with issues that are commonly faced by the ministers’ wives
as they strive to support their husbands in ministry was presented to the public on the 29th of April 2021.
MATTERS ARISING IN MINISTRY is a compendium that may serve as reference material for ministers of God on matters that determine success or failure in ministry. The two books were authored by the set man of the ministry, Revd. Dr. Mike Oluniyi.
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I Myself should be a castaway. (1 Corinthians 9:27)
ABIDING GRACE TRACTS.
God continued to touch lives with the Abiding Grace Tracts. The ministry has continued to make the titles available for personal and group evangelism free of charge.
Various churches and ministries have been actively requesting for tracts as Abiding Grace has become well known for the provision of tracts for evangelism.
How Seriously Do You Take The Spiritual Disciplines?
I always look forward to being able to make the statement that Paul made, close to the end of his life in 2Tim.4:7&8:
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. (2 Timothy 4:7-8)
ABIDING GRACE CHAPEL
To the glory of God, Abiding Grace Chapel continues to be an effective base for the ministry. Members of the church continue to contribute to the improvement of church
facilities. During the women anniversary in November 2020,
the women group rugged the altar. some members also decided to give the altar a face lift as such added a 3D back drop to beautify the altar. Also during the twelfth anniversary of the church .in June 2021, a family donated a bigger generator to further enhance worship in the church.
Along with the 12th anniversary of the church, an ordination service was held, during which seven individuals were
ordained as deacons and deaconesses in the church.
That is the testimony of someone that finished strong. What would you love to be your own testimony? May we all have
the grace to finish strong in Jesus name. Amen.
