Scripture: John 15:5-7

5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. (John 15:5-7)

The Great Commandment:

To love the Lord our God with all our hearts, soul, mind and strength; and to love our neighbours as ourselves. (cf. Matt 22:37-40; Mk 12:30-31; Lk 10:27)

Every believer must know and carry out God's mandate in their life.

As Christians, we must use this God-given mandate to deal with what is happening in this sin-filled world, to reach out to the many lives that are dying without God.

Scripture: Daniel 2

In the second year of his reign, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; his mind was troubled and he could not sleep. 2 So the king summoned the magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers[a] to tell him what he had dreamed. When they came in and stood before the king, 3 he said to them, ‘I have had a dream that troubles me and I want to know what it means...’

The Core of the Gospel Message is about the Kingdom of God.

“The time has come, the kingdom of God has come near” (Mark 1:15; c.f. Matt 3:2)

“Jesus … proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God” (Luke 8:1)

He appeared to them…and spoke about the kingdom of God (Acts 1:3)

(Paul) proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance (Acts 28:31)

Scripture: Php 2:12-16

12 Therefore, my dear friends , as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose. 14 Do everything without complaining or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe 16 as you hold out the Word of Life—in order that I may boast  on the Day of Christ that I did not run or labour for nothing.

Scripture: Daniel 1

1 In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it. 2 And the Lord delivered Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, along with some of the articles from the temple of God. These he carried off to the temple of his god in Babylonia and put in the treasure house of his god... 

Scripture: Ecc 11:1-10

1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. 2 Give portions to seven, yes to eight, for you do not know what disaster may come upon the land. 3 If clouds are full of water, they pour rain upon the earth. Whether a tree falls to the south or to the north, in the place where it falls, there will it lie. 4 Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap ...

Scripture: Heb 13:5-6

5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 6 So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”

Scripture: Exo 13:1-2; 12-13

 

1 Then the Lord said to Moses,  2 “Consecrate to me all the firstborn, whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and beast; it is Mine” ... 12  you shall set apart to the Lord all that open the womb, that is, every firstborn that comes from an animal which you have; the males shall be the Lord’s. 13  But every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, then you shall break its neck. And all the firstborn of man among your sons you shall redeem.
