Montreal Immanuel Church of Olivet Assembly is grateful to witness the fruits of street evangelism. The weekly services continue to welcome young believers seeking God.
The Church encourage evangelism as a living practice of discipleship and making disciples of Jesus. Street evangelism is one of the many avenues the Church has initiated during the past weeks to witness Christ to Montreal youths.
During this Wednesday service, the Church minister exhorted the youth to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and find the priorities of life. The sermon was based on Matthew 6:24-34.
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in his entire splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear? ‘For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
The Bible also says “Man cannot live by bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4.
The word of God is His love towards us teaching us to have faith in Him. It also motivates us to seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all the other needs of life will be added unto us.Following the word, the Church will continue to minister to youths and teens to educate them to the knowledge of God through Bible studies, prayers, counseling and various Church activities.
