On Saturday, 4th May 2013, at 6 pm, I attended the Family Blessing Meeting at Jesus Calls Prayer Tower, Midview city, Bishan. Rev Albert Sylvin shared the Word of God entitled “Death to your self”.
46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. 49 But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”
23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
If we want to follow Jesus, we must (1) deny self, (2) take up our cross, (3) follow Jesus.
The way of the world tells us 1. live as you please 2. have what you want. 3. don’t let anyone tell you what you should do.
In natural, we are attracted by the ways of the world but we must deny our self. There is no victory without surrender stressed Rev Albert Sylvin.
24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.
Apostle Stephen, gave up his life, according to the will of God. But it was through his death, Christianity spread to nations.
Finally, after the sermon, Rev Albert Sylvin prayed for each one individually.
Praise God for a wonderful time
