Building the House of the Lord
Christian Fellowship Ministry (CFM) in the market is coming to a close in its first phase of 30 years, and this was made possible because of God’s faithfulness to uphold this ministry, His ministry for us to serve, all of us working in the market place in the City. And we who have been called are privileged to serve Him. Amen. And the next phase of 30 years will soon begin.
For several months now, the senior members (who are aging) have been on a renewal recruiting exercise – to select younger men and women to serve in the ministry. And we are glad to say that by God’s Grace, it is more than likely that this ministry will continue on for the next 30 years. But this can only happen by members’ total dedication to get together regularly in prayers, every Tuesday mornings. We know that the success of this ministry owes it to their dedication, to come week after week to pray and intercede for a harvest of souls of those workers working in the market place, all through prayers and intercession. We thank the small group of intercessors who diligently woke up each Tuesday mornings to attend the prayer meetings from 7:14 am to 8:00 am. Whether in a office room, if we have one, or in a stairway, it did not matter, we just knee and pray together. And many have been doing so for yes, close to 30 long years! We praise God for their stamina and perseverance to stay faithful and consistent!
These prayer members are certainly “constant” in obeying the voice of the Lord. Let’s read about King David making plan to build the house for God. King David at the end of his rule wanted to build a house for the Lord but as he was a man of war, God instead chose his son Solomon to do it. Let’s consider today’s scripture in
1 Chronicles 28:
“And he said unto me, Solomon thy son, he shall build my house and my courts: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father. 7 Moreover I will establish his kingdom for ever, if he be constant to do my commandments and my judgments, as at this day.”
Notice the words in verse 7 “if he be constant to do my commandments”.
And these are still for us, to seek His face, be sharing and serving Him, doing His will and always be “constant” in the things of God. When we do this to be in obedient and constant, we can be assured that His Eyes will be upon us!
So we covet your prayers ceaselessly to pray for us in the CFM ministry so that the Gospel will continue to spread in the market!
