Hi good people,
Now this Sunday was different, different in one specific way, the guy at the pulpit was called Felix, bila lies, Felix as far as I am concerned is the name of a cat, si you all know Felix the cat? I had to take like five minuites to calm my nerves when this chap, Mr. Felix Kioko said his first name. 🙂
KIOKO… Felix is a cat, please review your name, please. Felix is an orange cat with buldging eyes and a fat stomach. God bless you though, the sermon you gave was teriffic, considering it was your first time, it was teriffic.
Felix Kioko denies the fact that he had watched TV the night before he wrote his sermon but if you ask the rest of the congregation, that will be deemed a lie. Why? because he made the same quote as Kalembe Ndile (MP) (kao).
If the center does not hold, Things Will Fall Apart
Its either Kioko watched the news or that the above statement is a new kao thing. Anyway friends lets get to the matters of the spirit and the soul…
What holds your life? What comforts your life? Friends, is it the fear of the unknown?
What is the centre of your life? Who is the cente of your life?
All these where the questions that Kioko began his premier masterpiece with. By the way, it was great.
Moses, The jamaa who led the Isrelites up out of Egypt was babi in his younger days, as in he was the son of a mdosi, Pharao, he killed someone out of his own ego to satifsfy the centre that he thought. Well friends, if he had known that the centre of his life was God, he would not have taken matters into his own hands.
Ask God what the will for you life is. Its important, if you cant do it through prayer (Recomended way) then go outside, look up into the sky and say the following…
Dear God, What have you planned for my life, what is the will you have for my life, I love you God and I invite you to be the centre of my life now and forever Amen
God will skiza you. By the way, desire comes from God, if you make Him the centre of your life.Ya, you have to be God centred.
Phillipians 1:21 (NIV)
21For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Trust and try with Christ Jesus. have faith in him like the Isrelites had faith in God as they left Egypt and went across the Red Sea.
Why can’t we descide once and for all to give everythign to God? change your ways, Kenya will not stop functioning if you dont change. Kioko stressed that Carnivore can do without your money.
He gave an example of how we take a teacher for granted as they are teaching in class then one day exams come… You look at the questions… “Haiya si I have seen heard this somewhere?” Kumbe you where bila concentration. Let not the end come and find you taking life for granted thinking that you have done it right, you will surely miss out.
Read the bible, that is the only way to miss out. After the Masters Commission lunch, Mama Tj asked her mano (Pasi)…
Now!!! where do we go from here? there is bila anything to watch on the box (TV) and there is bila a good movie…
Pasi answers… “Haiya Si you can go read the bible?!@#$%^&*” I am leaving you all to imagine the expression of Tony’s face.
Point being where are worldly deeds so overtaking out spiritual needs? why are we being left out?
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)
17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
If and only if you are saved, you are a new creation, all that is not acording to his will you have left behind. Be ready to serve God.
Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
20I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
As ruminants ruminate, so shall man meditate on the word of God. Felix (cat) had some interesting proverbs ay?
The church (ICC) has numerous opportunities for fellowship. There are like 3 main services on Sunday, there are like 2 youth services, there are like C2’s there are CG’z… There are all for free, you do not have to pay a cent. I am sure the same happenz at other churches, akina Pente, bapu, deliverance etc. We are all one.
There are missions where transport is provided, food, dayunm even clud. Be encouraged to come to church. It is very important to fellowship with other people.
Kioko requested that we should come fellowship, Sunday, Prayers on Tuesday, Masters Commission on January through April ya, if you are idle at home, there is something for you to do. Oh and every 2nd Friday of the week there is JD’s favourate.. FNL.
Aiight… Lets talk about Paul (Formerly Saul), the guy who God Blinded and and repremanded as he was going to persecute the Christians. Ya that one. Paul was a role model, This is a tuff task. People believed him and in what he told them. He lead by example. He gave his all to God.
Here is a challenge again, take time to attend fellowship, whitness, surrender, check your hinderances, Give unto God.
The story is told of a man wanted to buy a house from another man, the other man, (seller), gave only one condition, that he should be left with the ownership of just one nail that was sticking off the wall. The buyer happly accepted the condition and purchased the property. Once all the transaction was done, the seller came over and hanged his jacket on the nail, this happened over some time, the new owner did not mind, then one day the guy came and hanged a piece of meat and left it there for some time… (Conclude for yourself, meat hanging in your sitting room for 5 or so days).
Moral of Story…
We claim to surrender our lives to Christ but there are those tinzy winzy bits and pieces that we leave out. Let us give out all to Christ and not leave bits rotting all over.
Roman 14:11 (NIV)
It is written: ” ‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.’ “
Phillipians 2:9-11 (NIV)
9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
Choose the right path, the narrow path, the path to heaven.
Take the risk, take the inititative, think about your life and the areas that you may not have given to God.
Give your life that God may use you, that he may surrender his all to you.
At the end its you and God, Come to him as you are he will willingly accept you.
And Friends that was Felix Kioko’s Maiden sermon.
Take care and have a lovely, prayerful, surrendering and devotional week ahead. Love ya all
take care and Kudos,
Ps. Bila ps today. 🙂
