Catch us at the brook (Reflection on John 15:4) by Chimwemwe Njawala

I remember in 2005/2006 after I got saved , the zeal I had to preach the gospel. I was on fire for Christ that I wanted to share the greatest miracle that happened to me.

Growing in the faith, I have seen the hand of God upon my life, and I have also seen how at times I tried to use my talent in music claiming to preach Christ, but in truth, I was just promoting myself (God forgive me). It is possible sometimes to love the gift than the giver of gifts.
John 15 reminds us that we can never be productive on our own. Christ is not to be preached out of duty but out of the relationship we have with him and the mysteries we find in him.

John 15:4. Remain in me as I remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me (Christ).

Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 3:13 says,  “Their work will be shown for what it is, because the day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work”.

There’s no any foundation we can build on other than Christ himself, that’s why we are called to remain in him. But what does this mean? Joshua 1:8 explains it better.

So fellow soldiers of Christ, you can catch us at the brook, as we drink from the river of life (John 7:37) , study and meditate on the word of God, so we can know him more and represent him the way he ought to be represented.

Sunday Service with Apostle Ndovie by Tshephiso Dithebe

“Coming together is the beginning; keeping together is the progress; working together is success.” – Henry Ford.

It is always great to be in the presence of the Lord. Let’s all come together in praise and worship for where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them, says the Lord as we will be graced by the presence of Living Waters Church founder (Apostle Dr S.S. Ndovie).  You are the chosen people, a royal priesthood, and a holy nation. God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness in to the wonderful light.

Tell your friend and you friends’ friends to come fellowship with us. Let us not give up on meeting together, as some of us are in the habit of doing but let us encourage one another and all the more as you see the day approaching.

Faith

Hebrews 11 King James Version (KJV)

11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
