Saturday 15th August 2020 Devotion
Scripture:- Phillippians 3:1-21
Topic:- Difference Between Old-Time Church Service And Modern-Time Church Services
Text:- Galatians 2:20
- When the Choristers of the old time finish singing, the congregation burst into tears because they sang down the glory, but in the modern, after the Delilahs and Jezebels finish singing, the Congregation respond with a clap offering returning Ichabod to Ichabod.
- In the old, during message, the congregation cry and tell God that they are sorry, but today, as message is going on people drop money, blow whistle and shout “ride on Pastor”.
- The old went to Church and the message gave them faith but the modern went to Church and the message gave them fake, (olive oil, handkerchief, apron, sticker, holy water, and calendars of their G. O.)
- The ancient carried their Bible in booklet because they were not ashamed of Jesus but some today carry ipad to Church because they feel shy to be identified with Jesus and to such, Jesus will be ashamed of you on the last day.
- The old go to Church with their hair covered with their head ties but the modern cover their hair with Brazillian weave-on (multi-coloured-hair, mad-man-like hair styles etc).
- During prayers, the ancient close their eyes and give God their whole attention but the modern open their eyes, looking around like armed robbers and even answers calls during prayers.
- The old dance godly dance to thanksgiving and offering but the modern is not even afraid to dance doro, awilo, alanta and azonto, etc, even before the Altar.
- The ancients go to Church with their body covered and are focused on inner beauty but the modern wears mini skirt, show everything,and everything on her is artificial and ends up looking like “mamiwota”. They are prone to falling at the slightest prayer because all she is putting on has a demon attached to it.
- In the old, sinners go home weeping but today sinners go home rejoicing.
- The ancients answer Altar calls with tears rolling down their faces. The modern do the same chewing gum.
O Lord, revive us.
Prayer Point:- Give me the old time religion and deliver me totally from the spirit of the world henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Blessed Saturday!
