The October 3 Thursday Showers service was more of a declarations service as Pastor Taiwo Odukoya read from Isaiah 61:7—the theme scripture for October, our month of Double Honour. He reminded the congregation never to pay attention to the noise of the devil.
In His words, “If you want to enjoy your life, stop worrying about unnecessary things. Just focus on Jesus.” The devil’s assignment, he said, is to steal, kill and destroy; but Jesus has come to give life and life in abundance. As long as you believe that Jesus has come, you have life, he stated.
Pastor Taiwo noted that there could be many who are more qualified, but as long as God has chosen to honour you, every garment of shame will disappear. “But you’ve got to have faith in Him who has called you,” he said.
He then encouraged the congregation to live the life of a true Christian by showing kindness and the love of God so that they would experience restoration. “Double honour is yours in the name of Jesus. Go out and touch lives. Let people know more about Jesus. And if there was shame awaiting you, God has promised double honour for your troubles,” he declared.
