TOPIC: PURPOSEFUL CELEBRATION
READ: Psalms 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
MEMORISE: Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Romans 12:15
Humans are social beings that love relationships. We love to celebrate achievements, events and joyful moments. However, its expedient that your celebration should be moderate and purposeful so that it wont glorify the devil.First, the manner of dressing and food or drinks served at your celebrations must be such as to give glory to God.
For example, if you or your guests appear in scanty or revealing clothes and you serve alcohol at the event, be ready to have the devil as the Chairman of the day.Whenever I celebrate my birthdays, I usually have two goals in mind which are to give to others and also win souls for Christ.
Thus, after food and drinks are served, I take a few minutes to share the gospel of our Lord Jesus because in actual fact, each birthday is a reminder that we are getting older and closer to the end. You need to use every means to get the message of hope out and one of the best media is through your celebrations.
Use your celebrations to propagate the gospel from now.
