Taking his message from the anointed song, “Sin’s Power Over Me Is Broken”, Prophet T.B. Joshua took us back to the feet of the Cross of Calvary, emphasising that our sin cannot be covered by our appearance or tears – it must be brought to the Blood of Jesus before the Spirit can pray through us. In the message entitled, WHO NEEDS FORGIVENESS? he quoted from verses 10 and 23 of Romans Chapter 3: 10“As it is written: ‘There is no one righteous, not even one’”; 23 … for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. He exhorted the congregation and viewers on the need to forgive themselves first so that they can forgive others. He said it was crucial for everyone to understand their limitations and to stop repeating stories of past failure, hurt and pain. Failing to do so, he said, would mean living “a carryover life”, contrary to what is expected of standard Christian living. Indeed, he said, both the offender and the offended need forgiveness.
Earlier on in the service, there was a powerful message from the woman of God,
Yinka entitled TURN YOUR SCARS INTO STARS. Taking her proof text from Romans 8, she advised Christians to see their challenges as opportunities for spiritual growth which builds faith. According to her, “broken focus is the reason why people fail”. Noting that God always makes a way for His children during their challenges, she implored the congregation: “Do not allow your bad experiences to limit you. Do not allow your bad experiences to wipe you out. Why don’t you turn your scars into stars? Why don’t you turn your mess into a message? Why don’t you turn your tests into a testimony?”
Below is a compilation of life-changing testimonies from the service that day:
