Nearly 70 members participated in the end of year divine service conducted by District Apostle Charles S Ndandula at Lusaka’s Olympia Park congregation on December 31, 2016. 2 Timothy 4vs7 was used as text word.

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

District Apostle Ndandula during the End of year divine service at Olympia Park Congregation on December 31, 2016Behold what manner of love, hymn number 137 CHC was sang as after text hymn. In reference to the after text hymn, the District Apostle told the members that their goal must be to see the Lord.

My dear brothers and sisters, as the choir has alluded to, our goal is to see the Lord and be like Him. But for us to achieve this, we need help – the Lord will help us to keep our faith and reach that goal.” he said.

Further, in reference to the 2016 motto “Victory with Christ”, the District Apostle told the members that in 2016, many battles were fought and with the help of the Lord, we gained victory with Christ.

In this service, District Apostle Ndandula outlined evil, fear and our own will as against the Will of God as some of what we battled against in the year 2016.

“Dear brothers and sisters, as written by Apostle Paul in our text word, we have individual battles as well as common battles to fight – in the year which is ending today. The common battles include “evil”; evil brought us so much sorrow and bitter circumstances, yet today, we are witnessing the close of the year 2016 in the house of God, we have kept our faith, the Lord has helped us to overcome evil.”

The District Apostle also encouraged the members to trust in God and to hold firm to the gospel of Jesus and turn that gospel into action.

“My dear brothers and sisters fear is another battle that we fought in this year. There are so many things that have brought worries in our lives, despite this, we still trust God and we have not given up on Him. In all circumstances, good or bad, let us trust God and conduct ourselves in accordance with the gospel of our Lord Jesus.” Other battles relate to overcoming our own will and accepting the will of God. It is not always easy to accept the will of God especially when it is contrary to our desires and wishes, but we were able to gain our little victories although we are not perfect.
