District Apostle Charles Ndandula during the divine service at Mukuni Congregation in Livingstone on 27th January, 2018January 27, 2018 was a special day for members at Mukuni Congregation in Livingstone when District Apostle Charles S. Ndandula, in the company of Apostles Godwin Nyuwa of Sesheke, Steven Lindunda of Kitwe and Donald Kalyangu of Lusaka, visited the congregation for a divine service which fell on a Saturday.

 

The District Apostle derived the service from the book of 1 John 3 and part of verse 8.

“…For this purpose the Son of God was revealed: to destroy the works of the devil.”

 

The District Apostle made reference to the after text hymn and encouraged the members to remain on firm foundation as God’s children.

The District Apostle further explained to the members that salvation can only be accessed through Jesus and that the devil wants to take this away through doubt as he did with Adam & Eve.

 

The District Apostle made reference to the book of Genesis chapter 3:1 when the Serpent planted doubt into Eve. The devil promised to give them more than what God had already given them. This, the devil still does today. 

 

The service ended on an encouraging note as the District Apostle made reference to the book of Romans 16:20.

The District Apostle further said, “As children of God, let us be able to recognize who the devil is despite all the temptations he brings and let us overcome him and when sin is overcome, let us strive to remain in the right path.”

 

Meanwhile, District Apostle Ndandula conducted another divine service the following day on Sunday 28th January, 2018 at Hillcrest congregation, in Zambia’s tourist city, Livingstone.

 

Mark 6: 37 was the text word for this divine service.

“But He answered and said to them, ‘You give them something to eat.’”

 

Mukuni Congregation, LivingstoneThe District Apostle began the service by making reference to the teaching of Jesus feeding bread and fish to the thousands.

 

“The Lord Jesus instituted Holy Communion, this came out of Him giving bread to the multitudes,” he said.

 

The District Apostle added that the bread of life comes from God but given to the Apostles to distribute and therefore this is an act of commissioning Apostles to disseminate the spiritual food to the congregations.

“Jesus during the feeding of the multitudes gave instructions that they should be in groups, this teaches us that we need to fellowship with one another by coming together as a congregation to work and fellowship as one,” he said.

 

Apostle Donald Kalyangu during the service at Hillcrest Congregation on 28th January, 2018The District Apostle also emphasized the need for members to thank God for the little they have. He added that the Lord provides plenty as he referred to the 12 full baskets of bread that remained after feeding the multitudes.
