Jesus the perfect model

Jesus is the perfect model

1 John 1:5

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declares to you, That God is light and in Him is no darkness at all

Similarly in John 1:6-8

There was man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light , but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

  • In God, there is no wickedness nor sin
  • He came to be a light to all men
  • He gave as a choice, so we can decide if we want it John 1:12 says
  • He gave a promise to be a part of Him (sons & daughters).

 

The mark that shows we are his children (believers)

  • Jesus says this is how you will know
  1. 1 John 2:3 keep His commandment (matt22:37-38)
  2. If we say we know him but don’t keep them we lie
  3. Walk just as Jesus Walk (1 cor 11:1)
  • The above is nothing new it’s always been there
  • My fear is that there are some who deceive themselves. Who claim to be in Christ but Walk outside of Him.
  • When Walking with God is something intimate, something you know within you like you know your own Name

 

Out stumbling stone

  1. Sin

1 Peter1:13

Gird up the loins of your mind, be sober and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance

  • God warns us of the dangers of not protecting your heart and mind. So that you will be able to resist the devils of this world and cause us to go astray
  • God in this one verse God clearly says you have to be all in! There is no middle ground. Our hope are all sold out for Jesus.

 

  1. Hard hearts

Rom 1:21 Because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful but became futile thoughts and their foolish hearts were darkened…  24

Our hope

Hebrews 2:14-18

Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity o that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of him who holds the power of death- that is, the devil- and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it’s not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants for this he had to be made like them, fully human in every way in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God and that might make atonement for sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those are being tempted.

 

  • Jesus had to be like us man in every way so we could be set free
  • He paid the highest price for us
  • He has suffered and been tempted and understand us and so he is best qualified to make a partition for us

 

  1. When you stumble run to the cross
  2. When you’re tempted run to the cross
  3. When it seems life is against you, continue to run to him

Being human means that we are floured and will not always do what is right, but it is through Jesus we are made Perfect by His blood.

Me in You

your are in me and I in you.

when I am lost, one look at you.

I find myself in you,

you are my map home, you are home.

Complete I am, when i’m with you

 

when I thirst, I drink from  the fountains of your love.

I’m in love with loving you.

Like a drunken man who let go of the bottle.

Like a baby wails for his mom.

as much as or even more than I love my life.

I LOVE YOU

Ministry Partnership Development [ENC]

IMG_0714

My name is Kindness Shikwambana and I am in full time ministry in the University of Venda for Every Nation Campus. I believe in changing lives through the word of God and empowering young leaders to be equipped to share the gospel to others through love, because as ambassadors of Christ, we are all God representative of the faith in with we are believe to Christ. Every believer should feel free to live out their faith and believes without fear.

If we can reach out to young leaders we get the opportunity to have influence in many sphere of society and reaching the next generation as well, by establishing strong biblical foundation, to the people on campus. How do we do that? trough activities that we have in the local church like events socials for examples like color first, which is an event that we have to welcome first years into the family other activates include Engage Friday where we do evangelism.

You may be asking yourself where I fit in this whole picture. In the church I run engage department which is evangelism in the church. We have achieved much in this department as Venda campus. A brief overview is that we were previously not as strong in evangelism we only went out frequently in a year. But From last year around August I was equipped by the church to train other students on campus in our church to go out.

  • Here are some pictures we took through the year. Each picture tells each own story.

This is my small group

We empower young leader through this to be strong leaders. By instilling Godly principals in young man. So they can be better leaders

Engage Friday

Equipping others to share their faith and who Jesus to others and to grow spiritual in relationship of who Jesus is. there has been many testimonies and salvation through this activity of actively sharing the gospel.

welcome first years to our campus by hosting a yearly social, to make them feel at home. And also getting to connect with them and get them into family. First year as a student are the hardest and loneliest at times. This is how we reach out to students. we host the event on campus hall.

Venda mission outreach

In late August a mission team came to help us equip and train young leaders in the church, and during their stay it was recorded that there was around 72 re-commitment and first time commitments to Christ in only two weeks. It only goes to show that the harvest is ready, we only need laborers.

If you would like to partner with me financial, by sowing into my life and to the ministry so I can do what God has called me for. This is what’s called Ministry Partnership, where you pledge to send a certain amount of your choice to me every month. It not just that but a relationship that is formed. If you would like to partner with me and God on what he is doing on Venda campus contact me at my email kindnesslshikwambana@gmail.com, or kindnesslshikwambana65@gmail.com .

Our vision as a movement is

We exist to honor God by establishing Christ centred, spirit empowered and socially responsible churches and campus ministries in every nation.
