MESSAGE TOPIC: DEDICATION TO THE HOUSE OF GOD
BY: DR. PAUL ENENCHE
- Understanding the virtues or profit of dedication to the House of God
- Understanding the practical action of dedication to the House of God
One of the hallmarks of dedicated people throughout scripture and throughout history was their dedication or addiction to the House of God. Passion for God is always translated into passion for the House of God
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF DEDICATED PEOPLE THAT WERE ADDICTED TO THE HOUSE OF GOD:
- David (Ps. 27:4; 122:1; 84:10)
- Joshua (Ex. 33:11)
- Paul the Apostle (Acts 17:1-2; Heb. 10:25)
- The disciples (Acts 2:46; 5:42)
- The Master Jesus (Luke 2:46; 4:16)
THE VIRTUES OR PROFIT OF DEDICATION TO THE HOUSE OF GOD:
- The House of God is the place of Divine encounters (Gen. 28:12-13, 16-17; Ex.3:1-2; Isa. 2:2;Obad. 1:17; Lk. 1:5-13)
- The House of God is a place of spiritual and supernatural strength (Ps. 84:7; 110:2; Isa. 52:1-2)
- The House of God is a place of revelation and illumination (Ps. 73:17)
It is a place where you get clarification
- The House of God is the place of refuge and preservation (Ps. 27:4-5; Acts 4:23; 12:5; Heb. 12:22-24; Ps. 34:7)
- The House of God is the place of Blessing and flourishing (Ps. 92:12-13; Ps. 133:1-3; Obad. 1:17)
You don’t run from church to jam blessing
- The House of God is the place of wholeness and deliverance (Obad. 1:17; Matt. 21:14; Luke 13:11-13)
It is the place where chains are broken and deliverance is received
If your affliction cannot stop your dedication to God, then your dedication to God will sooner or later swallow up your affliction!
- The House of God is the place of commitment and consecration (Heb. 10:25-26; Ps. 89:7; Prov. 8:13)
Every time you hang around the House of God, iron sharpens iron
The best of man comes out in the Presence of God and the worst of man is released outside of God
OUR PRACTICAL ACTION OF DEDICATION TO THE HOUSE OF GOD:
- Be planted in the House of God (Ps.92:12-13)
Don’t remain a permanent visitor, spectator or stranger in the House of God; be involved!
For Church to affect your life, you must be committed
- Be faithful to your Kingdom appointments (Acts 2:46;Matt. 6:33)
Don’t allow things to come in between you and your commitment to service
Let not distance stop you; the House of your Father can never be too far
Don’t let business appointments with a mortal man interfere with your appointment with God (Matt. 6:33)
Don’t let Christian television interfere with your physical connection to the House
To get apostolic results, we must follow apostolic patterns
- Be committed to the Church in the House (Acts 2:46; 5:42)
House fellowship or Home cell is not a church doctrine, it is a scriptural ordinance and pattern. To follow the pattern of God, is see the results of God.
- Commitment to God and to His House is profitable both for time and for eternity
- It is not a waste of time or life to be committed to God and His House
Father, I am here before You today to surrender, my life and time to You. Where I have not been committed to You as I should, I ask for mercy, in Jesus’ Name.
Father, draw me closer to You – in relationship, fellowship, and intimacy, in Jesus’ Name
