‘Importance of Service & Worship’ by Rev. Pradeep Mohapatra, (17th March, 2019)

Rev. Pradeep Mohapatra preached on the theme ‘The importance of Service and Worship in Church’. This passage portrays 2 important qualities every believer and church should possess to grow spiritually. Martha was focussed on Service and Mary was focussed on Worship. Today’s church desperately needs these 2 qualities to grow spiritually. Unless we have the heart of Service and Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth; we cannot satisfy Him truly. If today your life is in a mess; if your life is in bondage; then come to Christ. Let us Serve and Worship Christ in the beauty of His …

‘Come’ by Mr. G.S.P. Dhas, (17th March, 2019)

Mr. G.S.P. Dhas preached on the theme ‘Come’ from Isaiah 55:1-3. This passage contains an Open Invitation and a Great offer. The one who is inviting is God Himself. This is an universal invitation to all who are thirsty. Sadly, today people go after power and natural things of this world; but that would never satisfy the soul. Only the Spiritual things can give us peace; God is calling us to Himself. ‘Come’, not for what you must do; but for what you must receive! In conclusion; you must admit your thirst/need for satisfaction; you must admit your poverty/inability to …

Perfect Love drives our Fear

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear… Experts tell us that babies have two natural fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. A study on fear was conducted on 500 adults of varying ages, backgrounds and lifestyles. The results showed that they shared some 7,000 different fears. This means that they must have learnt 6,998 fears since they were born. That is a lot of fears! Actually, our bodies are designed for faith. Fear was foreign to man until Adam sinned against God. For the first time, Adam …

Live the FULL Life

Romans 5:17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ… When God created man, He did not intend for man to grow old, become weak and powerless, suffer diseases and die—first the physical death, then the second or eternal death. God never meant for man to go through all these and for death to reign. But because of one man’s offense—that man being Adam—death reigns. The ultimate death is the second or eternal …
