HOW TO GET THE BEST FROM A SPIRITUAL MEETING (Part 1)
Every time we go for the monthly meeting with my Spiritual Father, I take time out to pray for him. I back it up with a text message appreciating him for his labour over our life and ministry. I end it by mentioning how expectant I am.
My dear pastor and father said to me recently also that “When I came to Eruwa, I knew that virtue left him”. I had to confess that I taught the workforce how to receive the Word of the Lord from ministers. They became so hungry and ready.
Friend, when you enter into a service and you feel dry and not impacted, before you look at the preacher or worship minister, take a seat and examine your preparation also.
Most times, we come to church and spiritual meetings with the heart of a consumer and not the mind of a contributor. If you do not see yourself as part of the process for a great meeting, you will go in there most likely without expectation and with the mindset of a spectator.
Do you know the Bible says that when you are prepared for a meeting, you will always have something to bring along? When you go into a meeting prayed up, it is easy to hit the overflow.
“What should you do then, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each one has a song, has a lesson, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all these things be done for the strengthening of the church.” 1 Cor. 14:26
If you come to a meeting without anything to offer, you cannot get the best from a meeting. Do you know how powerful the connection is when the song leader raises a song that blessed you the previous night? You overflow.
What happens when the Word comes to confirm what you just studied? You are super elated.
But how do you expect this to happen when you have not spent time with the Word and prayed in the Spirit privately before you come for the meeting? There will be no overflow!
This season, before you go to church, ask yourself, “What am I bringing?” It changes everything for you. You become more connected and not just a mere consumer leaving service full of complaints.
