This is Talk 1 from the just-ended CDM Major Retreat on the theme "Multiplying Christlike Disciplemakers". The retreat focused on enhancing both the quality and quantity of our disciples. May you be blessed as you listen.
Faith that takes the mountains in our lives must and will be tested, tried, and refined. Do you have what it takes to keep on keeping on, holding on to the truths of Christ, the Scripture, and the promises of God that He has revealed to you? Rev. JFK Mensah charges us to keep the faith.
In the Old Testament, anointing was specially reserved for a few. Through Christ, we have all received the anointing of the Person of the Holy Spirit. Some Christians are however hesitant to receive Him because of certain hindrances in their hearts and minds. Rev. JFK Mensah disabuses our minds on the issue.
Why must every Christian leader invest in excellence? Even God assessed His own handiwork and declared it to be "very good". Any Christian who produces a character and output less than this standard is unremarkable to God, men, and Satan. How can we attain excellence in our lives? Rev. JFK Mensah addresses this.
The reasons why many Christians do not fast and pray are many and varied. But you cannot be a Christlike disciple without these. 2/3 of the Godhead intercedes, therefore if it takes so much divine help for us to make it safely to heaven, an un-praying Christian is in mortal danger. In this message, Rev. JFK Mensah shares ten things that Jesus taught us about prayer, and some tips for an effective prayer life.
