Topic: Appropriating Believers Blessings
Main Texts: Matt. 7:21-27, Col. 1:13-17,

Key Idea: Believers are in a unique position of advantage because they belong to Jesus and they are no longer in darkness. Consequently, they have access to numerous blessings which need to be utilized.

He further divided his teachings into two parts
1. What are the believers blesssings?
Epesians 1:3-6 says We are blessed with Spiritual blessings in the Heavenly places in Christ (7 gifts of the spirit) and Revelations 5:11-13 talks about other blessings. (Power, riches, wisdom, strength, blessings, honor, and glory).

2. How can we access the believers blessing. See Mathew 7:21-27 and Colossians 1:13-17

Insights Offered:
The sermon emphasized the importance of not just having access to blessings but moving towards actively utilizing these through faith (Hebrews 11:6), study of the word of God (Psalms 1:2-3) and, practicing the word of God (Matthew 7:24)

1. For Increased Zeal: “Increase my hunger to practice your word.”
2. For Faith and Diligence: “Help me to follow You in faith and to study your word diligently.”

The service was profoundly impactful, characterized by deep worship, enthusiastic praise, and an insightful sermon that equipped the believers with the knowledge that we must move from the level of accessing God’s blessings to the level of utilizing it which can only be done by faith
– Moving from darkness to light is by faith.

– Utilizing God’s blessings is by faith.

The atmosphere was spiritually charged, leaving the congregation uplifted and renewed in their commitment to faith and active practice of God’s word.

Concluding Remark:
