“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Dr Myles Munroe | The Qualities of a Good Man
[12/25/19] Father, we know that Your time table is pre-ordained in the events that make an eternal difference in our lives. A thousand years can be reckoned as a day and a day as a thousand years. We are a redeemed people because You gave Your only begotten Son so that we would not perish but have eternal life. Just as Simeon and Anna awaited the first coming of the Messiah, we await the second coming of Christ’s return when we will be caught up in the air and will reign forever in the eternal heavens. May we be found steadfast, sober, expectant and alert awaiting the day of Your promised return. Keep us faithful and watchful until that glorious event takes place in the name of Jesus we pray. Amen
Thanksgiving is the expression of gratitude; especially to God. Part of being a Christian is living a thankful life. If you thank God for what He has done before, He does more for you – no wonder Christ most times started His prayers by thanking His father in heaven; this truth is also found in the Lord’s prayer.
Here are 3 Scriptures about thanksgiving
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind!
[11/01/19] What is the most wonderful thing about our salvation? Bishop Sidrac Cesar, emphatically responds: “That we are the children of God!” Too often we focus on the things that we avoid when we are saved; avoiding God’s righteous judgment, or being saved from eternity in hell. While those things are true and weighty, the Doctor would have us also remember the things that we gain: we gain the privilege to become the children of God, and we gain entrance into the Kingdom of Heaven. There are several questions that, depending on our answers, prove that we are indeed God’s children: Are we concerned about the name of God? Do we grieve at sin and blasphemy? Do we enjoy creation in a way that reflects our understanding that the world is God’s? Do we look forward to Christ’s return? Bishop Sidrac Cesar examines these questions and more with scrutiny and with the aid of the Scriptures.
CHRISTIANITY - THE ONLY HOPE
A SERMON ON ACTS 1:1-3
The Promise of the Holy Spirit
In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God. (ESV) Why do Christians go to church? What compels us to gather for a day of worship, fellowship and preaching? Is it because of an agreement of morals or a collective optimism about life? Is it only for the weak and discouraged? In this sermon, Bishop Sidrac Cesar explains the true purpose of the Church. With clear exposition and thought-provoking questions, Bishop Sidrac Cesar presses into the heart and asks a compelling question: do you know the gospel? Listen as Bishop Sidrac Cesar explains the saving message of Jesus Christ, especially how Luke writes it in his gospel and his treatise to Theophilus entitled "The Acts of the Apostles," or "Acts." The sinner's past is forgiven when he repents of his sin. In an instant he is made a new creation because of what Jesus did on the cross in paying the wages of sin. Our victory is secure by the resurreciton of Jesus Christ. Since He is alive today, He fulfills the promise He made as He was ascending by being with us to the end of the age. As Bishop Sidrac Cesar exposits Acts 1:1-3, listen as he very precisely explains why Christianity is the only hope and how this concept displays itself in the church. As "The Doctor" says in this sermon: "If you want to understand Christianity, don't shut your Bible, open it! Listen for your life!"
[10/15/19] Father, often the days converge into another and before we know it another year has passed. Help us to be keenly aware of each new day and the opportunity it holds for us to build character and be engaged in our Father’s business. We want to daily turn to Your holy Word for wisdom so that we will present to You a heart full of godly wisdom and a life fully surrendered to You. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen
Is Your Church Making You Depressed?
If your place of worship has one of these harmful qualities, it might be time to move on. Part 4
This one is almost as hard to see as apathy, but in a different way—it can be breathtakingly beautiful. This kind of church appears to have it all. They’ve got a talented worship team. They have a charismatic pastor. They probably have a ton of really extroverted members who swarm all over you as you step inside.
But after a while, something rings hollow.
This is the church that loves to look at itself in the mirror. It spends most of its budget on things that look good rather than on outreach and missions. Its members pray loudly, but don’t really say anything to God. It's musicians produce awesome tunes, but no one is really worshiping. It's more a social club than a place to worship God.
It’s all style and no substance, and the result is very close to that of an apathetic church—a loss of overarching purpose. When your church is merely a selfish echo chamber instead of a loudspeaker to the rest of the world, you can quickly become depressed by the resulting emptiness.
Don’t hesitate to find a place of deeper worship if this is the case for you. Having the opportunity to be actively in the service of God can surprise you with joy.
Finally, does your church cultivate an atmosphere of distrust? Are phrases like “hold one another accountable” thrown about? Are you explicitly told to “watch” one another?
Then you’ve got a 1984 situation on your hands, and like Big Brother, your church is watching every move you make, ready to respond with punishment.
It’s good for a church to have guidelines in place to handle troublesome issues, but when those guidelines include spying and reporting on one another, things have gone too far.
This often goes along with the aforementioned bad theology—shame is a huge component here. Congregants’ secrets are often publicly revealed in this kind of church, and this is done under the guise of scriptural church discipline.
If your church’s leadership and congregation take pleasure in finding dirt on one another and publicly exposing it, it’s definitely time to move on. This kind of environment can lead to feelings of shame, worthlessness, and paranoia—all of which can lead to depression.
Open Your Eyes
Don’t let the place meant to bring you closer to God be the darkest part of your life—this should never be so. Go meet God in a place that upholds the fruits of the spirit and encourages members to treat one another—as well as outsiders—as Christ would.
If your church is making you depressed through abuse, neglect, or shame, you are free to leave—never forget that. There are better houses of worship out there that function in kindness, love, and humility. Seek these out, and you’ll find the joy you’re looking for.
Is Your Church Making You Depressed?
If your place of worship has one of these harmful qualities, it might be time to move on. Part 3
Bad theology isn’t just the playground of cults and fundamentalist churches. It can arise anywhere, and it can affect churchgoers in terrible ways.
God gave us the Bible so that we can know Him, glorify Him, and serve Him better. He also gave it to us for our own good—He knows the end game, and He knows what is best for us. He love us, after all.
But some churches wield that same Bible like a hammer, slamming guilt, worthlessness, and, above all, shame into their congregants.
That shame is the worst, and the prime cause of depression amongst those in churches that practice bad theology. And it is especially harmful because this spiritual abuse is backed by “scripture”.
But the reality is that these scriptures are cherry-picked and unexamined. God doesn’t want to shame you. You aren’t worthless. You’re made in the image of God, Himself, and you’re of infinite value. Anyone who takes the time to really understand the Bible can see that.
So if you’re in a church environment that constantly makes you feel like the scum of the earth, leave that place. You’ll lift a weight from your shoulders that you didn’t know you had.
Apathy is one of those sneaky qualities that often goes unchecked in churches, but you can see it if you look hard enough. People scatter as soon as the sermon is over. There is no community outreach program. The pastor never answers his phone, and no one is interested in the lives of anyone else. Congregants and leadership are bored and uninvolved.
This isn’t the way church is supposed to be. If your church lacks purpose, you can take on that sense of purposelessness. Before long, you’ll start to wonder what the point of it all is, and why you come at all.
This hurts, and the loss of an overarching purpose that extends beyond the material world can cause depression.
Don’t grow complacent along with your peers in this kind of church. Break out and try to start something—anything. Since this is one of the few problematic church situations which can be changed relatively easily, work to make your church more active. People will get excited and may get involved, themselves.
And if that doesn’t work? Move on and find your purpose elsewhere. They probably won’t even notice.
Is Your Church Making You Depressed?
If your place of worship has one of these harmful qualities, it might be time to move on. Part 2
Speaking of issues of power, would you want to attend a church where more than half of the congregants are treated as second-class citizens in the kingdom of God?
No—you wouldn’t. But the fact is that many churches do just this to their female congregants, who, by the way, attend church in vastly higher numbers than men.
This often boils down to how a church interprets the teachings of Paul, who wrote, in one of his letters, that women should never teach men, that they must, in fact, be silent.
This often translates into a church environment that is toxic for women—one that can leave you depressed as you are made to feel lesser because of your gender, as you are silenced, as you are robbed of opportunities to use your strengths and gifts.
But, again, this is unscriptural. Galatians 3:28 proclaims the truth: “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
In this context, we can see that Paul wasn’t speaking of all women, all the time. He was addressing a particular issue at a particular church. But what it truly boils down to is if your church isn’t treating you as Jesus would have treated you, it’s time to go.
There are other churches out there that will treat you with the love, equity, and respect that you deserve as a human being made in the image of God.
Does your church’s method of dealing with conflict involve talking about people rather than to people? This is called gossip. It’s cowardly, mean-spirited, and hurtful, and it has no place within the church.
Gossip is a lot more hurtful than most people realize. It’s a sneaky thing that can quickly break down the unity of a church, and if it’s about you, it is extremely difficult to prove false.
It often comes from a place of self-importance—this or that person just doesn’t meet the standards of the church community, and so they are “discussed”. That discussion mutates, facts are exaggerated, and before you know it, someone’s ankle tattoo has turned into an epic tale of drug addiction.
Church should be a place of unity and fellowship—you shouldn’t have to fear cliques and gossip. You shouldn’t have to fear for your reputation. Environments like this can wear you down over time, fostering depression.
God wants to meet you in a place where you feel safe and comfortable. If this isn’t your church, it’s time to find another.
Is Your Church Making You Depressed?
If your place of worship has one of these harmful qualities, it might be time to move on.
Depression can have many sources. It can arise from an abusive family member. It can stem from hurtful comments about your gender. It can come from the shame heaped upon you by a workplace bully.
But one source of depression that no one ever talks about is church. That’s right—your place of worship might be making you depressed.
Because the house of God is filled with fallible people—people who are capable of abusing, hurting, and shaming one another. Those same people who do these things within their families, workplaces, and communities, bring their flaws to church with them.
But one thing makes the church an especially insidious source of depression is that it’s nearly impossible to detect as a source of pain. Abuse can wear many masks, some of them quite pious or innocent, and when this abuse is mixed with theology, you may even begin to think that your mistreatment is a punishment from God, Himself.
It’s not. That’s not how God works, and it’s not the way His church should work—if your church is hurting you, it’s time to go. So to help you figure out if it’s time to move on, let’s look at 7 ways your church might be making you depressed.
The Abuse of Power
Does the leadership of your church rule through fear and domination, silencing opposing voices and labeling those who question them as “troublemakers”? Worse, do these leaders demand obedience because they are “God’s anointed”?
This isn’t scriptural. Your church has an issue with the abuse of power.
When church leaders rule by force rather than serving in love, churchgoers suffer, just as a family would suffer beneath the iron hand of an overbearing father—they wither for a lack of respect, are forced into roles they don’t want or can’t handle, and they don’t feel they have a meaningful voice. They are no longer people. They are pawns.
Being powerless and controlled in the place that should be your greatest sanctuary can cause depression.
Your pastor is not an angel or an avatar of God. He’s not even a celebrity. He’s a human being, subject to the same base passions as anyone else. And if he, or anyone else, rules your church in a way that steps out of line with Biblical teachings, it’s time to go.
Don’t be intimidated into staying in a depressing situation—get out.

Dr Myles Munroe | A Man Needs Respect (Animated Sermon)
La première chose à laquelle je pense à cette date est que dans 9 mois, ce sera Noël! Mais ce n’est pas ce sur quoi nous devrions réfléchir. Imaginez ce que cela a dû être pour Mary. Elle était là, une simple fille dans une petite ville, fiancée et s'apprêtant à se marier. On lui dit maintenant qu'elle a été choisie comme mère du Messie. Qu'est-ce qui a dû traverser son esprit! Que va dire Joseph? Est-ce qu'il voudra toujours l'épouser? Qu'est-ce que cela signifie d'être une mère pour un sauveur? Joseph répondra aux deux premières questions, mais elle devra apprendre le reste, comme le font la plupart des mères, jour après jour.
Dieu a aussi un plan pour chacun de nous. Ses plans ne sont pas connus dans le même genre de grande annonce, mais il nous le dit. Qu'est ce que tu aimes faire? Quels cadeaux voyez-vous en vous? Dieu ne nous demande pas de faire ou d’être autre chose que ce qu’il nous a préparé à faire. Par exemple, il ne demande pas à quelqu'un qui obtient le F en science d'être médecin. Et puisque Jésus nous dit qu’il est venu pour nous apporter de la joie, il ne nous mènera pas à une vocation qui nous rendra malheureux. Mais la seule vocation de tous les baptisés est d'apporter le message de Jésus à d'autres. Nous le faisons par exemple aussi bien que par mot. Il a planté la graine de la foi dans nos cœurs; tout ce que nous avons à faire est de le vivre.
Prière: Seigneur, tu as préparé Marie à être la mère de ton Fils, tu nous as préparé par notre baptême à passer le mot de ses actes de salut aux autres. Aidez-nous à reconnaître cet appel et à dire oui, comme l'a fait Mary. Amen.
