THEME: CHILDREN OF GOD
1 John 3:10
“In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.”
-In the way of righteousness is life, and in its pathway there is no death (Proverbs 12:28). Jesus tells us in John 14:23-24, that those who love Him keep His word, the Father will love him and they will make their home in him. But anyone who does not keep His word does not love God. It is through love for God and our neighbours that the children of God are manifest, but those who do not love are of the devil. We are called to walk in love and keep God’s word and the grace of God will abound in us. Abraham had faith and it was accounted to him for righteousness. We are called to walk in faith and not by sight for only those who walk in faith please God. Faith in God is also an account for righteousness for we rely on the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Those that give to the poor also abound in righteousness for it is written: “They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor; their righteousness endures forever (2 Corinthians 9:9). We who are led by the Spirit of God, are sons of God, and the Holy Spirit convicts us to righteousness for we are the righteousness of God. Through walking in love, keeping God’s word, holding fast faith in Jesus and giving to the poor, we remain in the righteousness of God.
Splendid and majestic are Your works Lord, Your righteousness endures forever. Thank You Lord for the gift of life and for the blessings that You have bestowed upon us. We know that there are many who wanted to wanted to see this day but they were unable, we don’t take this for granted but give You all the honor and praise. Be with all those who are bereaved all over the world and especially our former president Moi’s family, that You may settle their hearts with Your peace. We shall not die but live to declare Your glory Lord. Only You Lord are worthy of our worship, only You are worthy of our praises. Establish us in Your ways of righteousness Holy Spirit and fill our hearts and minds with Your truth. Help us to take delight in Your word that we may meditate on Your laws day and night. Plant us Jesus in the water is Your word so that we may be transformed and conform to Your image. You are the Vine Jesus and we are the branches. Help us to bear fruit in its season and may our leaves never wither. Bless the work of our hands and prosper our nation Lord. Prosper us Holy Spirit in all our ways for You only know the way we should go. Cleanse us Jesus with Your precious blood and shield us from all evil. Increase our faith in You and fill our hearts with Your love. Oh God of all creation, bless this our land and nation. Justice be a shield and defender. May we dwell in unity, peace and liberty, plenty be found within our boarders. Amen
