YESTERDAY AT THE 105 CONVENTION OF THE NIGERIA BAPTIST CONVENTION IN SESSION
BAPTIST INT’L CAMP NDELE, RIVERS STATE.

MINISTERING: BISHOP DAVID OYEDEPO

(MOVING FORWARD: BUILDING A GREAT NATION THROUGH EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP)

NO NATION WILL HAVE TO COME BUILD ANOTHER, IT HAS TO BUILD ITSELF.

IT MEANS TAKING RESPONSIBILITY TO DEVELOP.

GREAT LEADERS ARE MASTER BUILDER OF THEIR NATION.

THE FORMER PRIME MINISTER OF SINGAPORE , WHO MOVED THE NATION FORWARD FROM THIRD WORLD TO FIRST WORLD WAS ASKED WHAT THEY DID RIGHT. HE SAID “WE DID SOMETHING RIGHT AND WE KEPT DOING IT”

EVERY GREAT NATION EMERGED FROM THE VEHICLE OF GREAT LEADERSHIP….

GOD BLESS THE BAPTIST CONVENTION FOR BOWEN UNIVERSITY.

A NATION BEREAVED OF KNOWLEDGE IS TRULY BEREAVED…..

OUR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROCESS IS ESSENTIAL.

THEY ARE USING OUR NUMBER (AS CHRISTIANS) AGAINST US BECAUSE OF NONE PARTICIPATION OR DIRECTIONLESS PARTICIPATION.

IT IS TIME TO RESHAPE OUR INVOLVEMENT.

EVERY TRANSFORMATION TRACES EDUCATION.

YOU CAN’T OVERSEE WHAT YOU DON’T SEE.

IF ALL THE MONEY DIRECTED TO POLITICAL JAMBOREE IS DIRECTED TO EDUCATION, WE WONT BE WHERE WE ARE.

GREAT VISION AND THE PURSUIT OF SAME IS KEY.

WHY MUST YOU BE INVOLVE? GIVE UNTO CEASER WHAT BELONGS TO CEASER AND TO GOD WHAT IS GOD.

WE MUST OCCUPY TILL HE COMES.

PRAYER: BEFORE JESUS COMES, THE CHURCH SHALL BE REIGNING IN POWER.

DAVID SAID IN 2 SAM. 2:3. JUSTICE IS REQUIRED.

WE NEED TO PAY ANY PRICE TO GET THE PEOPLE COMFORTABLE.

BEFORE POLITICS BECOME A CULT, WE MUST GET THERE TO SCATTER THE POWER OF DARKNESS.

WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS RULE, PEOPLE REJOICE.

PEOPLE DO NOT REJOICE WHEN PEOPLE ARE KILLED.

WE MUST USE OUR POWER AS CHRISTIANS AGAINST THE WICKED.

WHEN YOU DO NOT KNOW WHEN THERE IS A SHIFT, YOU MAY JUST BE LEFT BEHIND.

THE FEAR OF GOD IS VITAL TO FIT INTO THE POSITION OF LEADERSHIP.

PRAYER: NIGERIA WILL NO BE CUT DOWN.

LET US GET INVOLVED. SALT CANNOT STAND OUTSIDE THE FOOD TO GIVE IT TASTE, SALT HAS TO GET IN TO GIVE IT TASTE. THEREFORE, LET US ADD SALT TO THE SOUP FOR IT TO HAVE TASTE.

LET US GET INVOLVED.

ANYTHING THAT REQUIRES MANKIND, REQUIRES BELIEVERS’ PARTICIPATION.

EVERY BELIEVER IN THE NATION MUST/SHOULD GET A VOTERS CARD.

LET US STOP EVIL THROUGH PARTICIPATION. WE ARE REDEEMED TO REIGN IN LIFE WITH CHRIST.

WHATEVER YOU ARE, YOU SHOULD BE ON TOP OF WHAT YOU ARE DOING. YOU SHOULD BE THE ENGINEER, THE LAWYER, THE BANKER, THE PASTOR.

ROM.5:17.

YOU CANNOT EMERGE ON TOP WITHOUT A SACRIFICE.
THERE IS WHAT WE MUST DO TO GET THE REQUIRED TOPNOTCH POSITION.

THERE IS WHAT WE MUST DO TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. YOU DON’T WAIT TO BECOME, YOU ARE TO WORK TO BECOME.

WHAT MUST I DO TO ACTUALIZE THESE IN LIFE?

ECCL 10:5-18.
1). VS. 10.- WE NEED DIRECTION.

THERE ARE SO MANY DIRECTIONLESS CHRISTIANS IN THE LAND.

WITHOUT DIRECTION ONE COULD PERISH- PROV. 29:18.

JUST FIND YOUR PLACE AND STAY THERE, YOU WILL ENJOY HIS BACKING.

2). VS 15.- LEARN THE HOW TO.
WHETHER FORMALLY OR INFORMALLY.

TODAY’S GENERATION DOES NOT WANT TO GET TRAINED.

NOTHING EMPOWERS LIKE KNOWLEDGE.

WE MUST KNOW OUR JOB.
PEOPLE WHO SETTLE DOWN TO LEARN THE HOW TO EMERGE ON TOP.

3). DISCIPLINE (15,16).

DISCIPLINE IS ONE OF THE MAIN PRICE OF GETTING TO THE TOP.

DISCIPLINE IS A NON-NEGOTIABLE REQUIREMENT TO GET TO THE TOP.

2COR. 6:12
DISCIPLINE IS GOING FOR THE PROFITABLE AS AGAINST THE ALLOWABLE OR PERMISSIBLE.

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN- DO YOU LOVE LIFE, DON’T SQUANDER YOUR TIME, INVEST IT.

IF JOSEPH WERE INDISCIPLINE, HE WOULD HAVE ENDED HIS DESTINY AT PORTIPHARS HOUSE.

YOUNG PEOPLE, ENDEAVOUR TO BE DISCIPLINE.

IF YOU EVADE THE PAINS OF DISCIPLINE, YOU GET THE PAIN OF REGRET, MAKE A CHOICE.

4. VS 18- DILIGENCE

HARD WORK MAKES HIGH-FLIERS.

JOHN 9:4.

PLEASE LET US WAKE UP, NOTHING WORKS WITHOUT SOMEBODY WORKING IT.

PROV. 22:29.

” I’M BELIEVING GOD AND YOU SIT DOWN DOING NOTHING. YOU SOW SPARINGLY, YOU REAP SPARINGLY”

NO FREE LUNCH IN LIFE. MAKE POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION.

PROV. 12:24: ONLY HARD WORKERS GET ENTHRONED IN THEIR FIELD.

THERE ARE HIGH-FLIERS AROUND, STUDY THEIR LIFE.

YOU GET PAID WHEN YOU WORK.

ANY GRACE YOU DON’T LABOUR WITH, BECOMES A DISGRACE. LET US GET UP AND WORK.

5. SACRIFICE-

IT IS GOING BEYOND THE NORMAL CALL OF DUTY. BURNING THE EXTRA MID-NIGHT CANDLE TO GET THE JOB DONE.

LUKE 12:49-50
NO STAR WITHOUT A SCAR AND THE SCAR OF EVERY STAR IS SACRIFICE.

YOU CANT ACQUIRE A DUPLEX AT THE PRICE OF A BUNGALOW.

PSALM 87.
WE NEED TO TAKE RAW RESPONSIBILITIES IN A BID TO GIVE LIFE GREATNESS.

LIVE LIFE TO GIVE NOT TO RECEIVE. PEOPLE ARE GODS’ ASSET ON EARTH.

NOBODY WHO HAS NO WHAT TO GIVE TO PEOPLE. COMMIT TO THE WELL-BEING OF PEOPLE ON BEHALF OF GOD.

SACRIFICE IS KEY TO ACCELERATED ENTHRONEMENT.

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS.

YOU WANT A GROWING CHURCH, BE A GROWING PASTOR.

GRACE, REVELATION IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR LABOUR.

LABOUR IS PRACTICAL ENGAGEMENT IN YOUR SET GOAL.
