The Living Sacrifice
This was the message preached on Sunday by Rev prophet Dr S. V. O Okpere (JP) at Deliverance Holy Mission Int’l Inc headquarters in Benin City. Addressing the Congregation during the second Sunday covenant prayers week, charged believers in Christ Jesus to live in Christlike virtues, by giving themselves fully to the service of God and humanity, taking the work of God zealously and as the number one priority in their lives. Noting that, what has affected the value of the body of Christ is that, most Christian leaders are now interested in taking from their congregations, but only very few want to give back to the body of Christ and promote brotherly kindness to their host Communities.
Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me
Prophet Sunday Okpere while emphasizing his message, with support from the books of Matthew 16:24–27, Luke 9:57–62, Romans 12:1-3 and Ephesians 2:10, admonished Christian Leaders to avoid the temptations of mixing up their Spiritual lives with materialism which seems to be competitive in the body of Christ. He noted that, when you become a living Sacrifice, God will become your source. The Clerics stressed further that, the day you surrender your life to Jesus Christ, you become God’s Property, and He will be taking care of your needs, though things may be hard at first time, but, He will make sure your tomorrow will be alright.
