The Redeemed Christian Church of God, The Lord's Chapel (TLC) is the headquarter of Area 2, under the Lagos Province 23, Maranatha Chapel. The parish was established on 19th July 1998. Over the years, TLC has given birth to many parishes within and outside the shores of Nigeria. These amongst others include, House of Mercy, Jubilee Court, Covenant Church, Living Water (in collaboration with RCBC), Olivet Parish, (now The Lord's Parish), Life Sanctuary in Dublin.

Puzzle

 

VICTORY OVER TEMPTATION

What can we understand or say about ‘Temptation’? Temptation is the desire to do or have something that you know is bad or wrong, that is, to commit sin and stop loving God.

 

In the Bible, the children of Jonadab also referred to as Rechabites were tempted to disobey their father’s instruction, but they stood with the word of God and overcame the temptation. We need to understand that temptation is not a sin, but yielding to it is a sin.

 

SOURCES OF TEMPTATION

1.    The Devil

2.    Our Friends

3.    Our Neighbours

4.    The society we live etc

 

SOURCES OF STRENGHT DURING TEMPATATION

Obedience to the word of God is a source of strength during temptation.

Jesus is another source of strength during temptations, that is, why he depend on the written word of God to overcome temptation. Many times He do say, “ It is written” in that same way, we can overcome temptation and thereby have victory.

Temptation is common to all Children of God. Jesus himself was tempted. Go also made a promise that when we were tempted, there will be a way out.

REWARDS FOR THOSE THAT OVERCOME TEMPTATION

1.    Inheritance of all things

2.    You will have the crown of life

3.    Success

4.    Protection
