The entrance of the Word gives light, and the delegates at the ISMMN Conference were enlightened as the man of God, Rev. (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, ministered the Word.
In his teaching, Pastor Chris maintained that there is a mindset for fulfilling ministry. “The Word of God delivers to us a way of thinking – a mentality. You can’t carry out ministry with the mentality of your upbringing or ethnicity; you can’t think like a Zambian and live the Christian life,” Pastor Chris elucidated.
He admonished the delegates to, “endeavor to know the Lord’s way by studying His Word. If you’re in Christ, it means you’re no longer operating the world’s system; you operate in Christ. When you live in Christ, you don’t see the problems.”
Advancing, Pastor Chris stated that, “there are three laws that the new creation must be conscious of: the law of faith, the law of life (or the law of the Spirit of life) and the law of love.” He explained the scripture in Romans 8:1-2, that the new creation in Christ operates the law of life, which makes him free from the law of sin and its consequence, which is death.
“To walk after the flesh means to walk according to your senses and emotions. What gets your attention? Your senses or the Spirit? Take the Word and live by it. Set your mind, your focus on the Word,” Pastor concluded.
Strengthened, encouraged and blessed with the Word, the ministers took to heart the instruction from the man of God to prepare specially for the last day of the conference. Everyone departed with gladness in their hearts at the wonderful things they have learned. Tomorrow will be a most glorious time as this superlative conference concludes in victory.
