A lovely atmosphere characterized with members and the church in all-white attire created a charged and a uniform effect in what was the church last midweek service for the semester. A time of thanksgiving and exaltation was the focus for the evening.
The church was honored to be ministered unto by its own Music and Drama Director, Mr. Samuel Agyabeng. He started the sermon; better still the ministration on the topic “Be Thou Exalted”. He started by drawing the mind of the church to what God has done throughout the whole semester and the year as a whole by leading the church in a brief time of worship. After which he delivered a short message to the church. In his sermon He made this statement that “Before you can praise God from your innermost being you need to know three things”:
- Who God is to you, where he admonished us to get some names of God that tell us of who He really is to us as individuals.
- What He has done for you.
- What He can do for you, this he said was a praise of faith putting your confidence in Him.
In the middle of the sermon he went ahead to talk about the names of God where he cited the following to be used as a yardstick in the time of thanksgiving:
- The Lord is my strength ( Psalm 27:1, Philippians 4:13)
- The Lord is my Song (Deuteronomy 10:21) In hammering this point however he advised the church to listen and sing spiritual songs which he said is one sure way to maturity and growth.
- The Lord is my salvation ( Psalm 68:20)
- The Lord is my God ( Zechariah 13:9)
In the latter part of the sermon he made mention that the heavens and the earth cannot even contain God where he cited the following scripture 1 kings 18:13 and 27, Isaiah 66:1 as support. However he said that the resting place and habitation of God is the house that God is building us into by His spirit as quoted in Ephesians 2:19-22.
Mr. Samuel Agyabeng the MDD together with the Kings Praise then led the church in a time of worship and praise in what was indeed a remarkable, wonderful time in the presence of the Lord in what was the Church Last service for the semester and the year in final retrospect with all saying indeed EBENEZER: THIS IS HOW FAR THE LORD HAS BROUGHT US.
HALLELUYAH TO JESUS.
