Rccg June 2018 Thanksgiving Service
Theme: Exceedingly Above
Ministering: Pastor E.A Adeboye
Text: Ephesians 3:20
Prayer: Father, this morning we commit all of our students in all categories,their teachers and lecturers.
Please Lord give them the wisdom that is from above and cause them to excel in the name of Jesus.
For two minutes ask God what you want Him to do for you in the month of June; something special.
Ephesians 3:20-21 Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 3:21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
The human race is in categories. We have those people that are called Below Average, we have the Average and the Above Average then we have the Excellent and those who are Exceedlingy Above.
- We have many people in the below average category but God doesn’t want it – James 1:5.
- We have those who are in the average category, many Christians fall into this category 1corinthians 15:3-6. God wants you step higher – Psalm 25:3-7
- We have those who are above average; there are few people in this category. Acts 5: 10-13
- Being Excellent is higher than being Above Average – Acts 5:14-15 The Bible singled out Peter Acts 8:5-8 Acts 6:1-5 – Philip stood out from those who are Above Average
- There are those in the category of the Exceedingly Above; there are very few people in this category. God performed special miracle through Paul – Acts 19:11-12.
There are some of you that are already Excellent, thank God for you. But you must aspire for more.
Prayer – In the name of the one who made me your Father, you will end up in a class by yourself.
As a student, lecturer, professor, pastor, you can be in a class by yourself.
Prayer – I decree to you in the name that is above everyother name you will be exceedlingy above.
According to our text Ephesians 3:20, If you want to be exceeding above it depends on who is in you. 1John 4:4
Victory doesn’t depend on what you wear but you it’s inside you.
It takes God to excel. It is what is in you that determines how far you will go. It is the Spirit of God in Daniel that caused Daniel to excel.
You want to be, Exceedlingy Above, Excellent; it is determined by your commitment to the Holy one of Israel – Hebrews 1:9
It also depends on dilligent; lazy people don’t get to the top – Hebrews 11:6. If you are not ready to work hard you won’t go anywhere.
The Exceedingly Above Poem written by Pastor E.A Adeboye to motivate you.
The height by greatmen reached, and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight;
But they, while there companions slept
Were toiling up in the night.
It takes greater effort to remain a champion than to become one. Because when you become a champion everyone wants to take your champion away.
If you want to reach the top you have to be sure you are in Christ – Philippians 4:13, Colossians 1:27
- Prayer – Father, I don’t want to be just above average I want to be exceedingly above.
