After Mwingi, on Sunday 29th March 2015 the District Apostle Shadreck Lubasi continued with his weekend program for the second Divine Service to Makima in Kenya central the area of Apostle Peter Mutisya., the Palm Sunday Divine service brought great blessings and joy to the congregation of about 800 .On his arrival in the morning, the District Apostle received a hearty welcome from the Sunday children choir and the ministers led by the area Apostle.
Who is this?
An excerpt from a Bible passage Mathew 21:10 served as the basis of the Divine Service “And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?”. This was followed by a Bible reading from Mark 11: 1-11 . The District Apostle stated, “We are in a journey to Jerusalem and so we need to get the meaning of who Jesus is” stressing that the Journey is long. The District Apostle warned against having over-confidence in human beings citing that Peter, who was very close to Jesus denied Him three times. In this he urged the congregation to trust in God and have faith as the basis of every action and decision they make.
Explaining the story of Elijah till his succession by Elisha, The District Apostle stated that Elijah’s journey had been determined by God Himself and so it is our journey as well. Consistency in acting according to God’s instruction is the key to our salvation. He requested the congregation and the area to remain faithful to God even when some changes of leadership comes about, those changes are meant for good , since it is the will of God to give His people the kingdom.
The end of the Divine service was marked with a prepared choral music both from the Sunday school and the main choir as they sang in jubilation. In special dedication the choir sang a moving song in the District Apostle’s native Zambian language of Tonga.
This marked the end of hearty emotive experiences by the children of God and last visit of the district Apostle Shadreck Lubasi in those areas before his scheduled retirement on 19th April 2015 in Dodoma, Tanzania, during a festive divine service to be conducted by Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider.
