Parents, it is good to teach your kids that the first thing to ask God for every day is wisdom. The Bible says that the boy Jesus increased in wisdom, then in stature and in favor with God and man. Notice that this happened after Jesus went home with His parents and was submissive to them.

If there was anyone who knew it all, it was Jesus. Yet, He subjected Himself to His earthly parents. It is cool not to retaliate even though you have the power to. Meekness is strength under control. Power that is running all over the place is not power at all. We all admire a person who demonstrates real power—someone who can retaliate but refuses to. What shall I give you? And Your servant is in the midst of Your people whom You have chosen, a great people, too numerous to be numbered or counted.
Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours? Like Solomon, we need to be humble too. Beloved, we need wisdom to overcome the challenges we face in life. But wisdom does not come unless you see your need for it.
Now, one area that I want to highlight is: Doing business with believers. Be very careful when you do business in church among believers. Because things were not done professionally. Agreements were not put down in black and white. There were two couples in our church who were good friends. Both couples got married at about the same time. The next thing you know, the mistress of the house began to complain about the wet garments of the other couple not being hung up properly and water dripping onto the floor.
Needless to say, their relationship was affected. If you do, make sure you put things down clearly in black and white. Still, Christians can be quite gullible. That is why con artists love churches. So I want to say the same thing to all of you that our Lord said:. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

All of you are harmless as doves, except maybe for a few who like to gossip and backbite! There are always people in church who are very trusting, but not discerning. But the Lord sees it, and I see it too. Some ladies have even gone out for coffee with married men. By the way, the care group leaders in our church have been told not to send any girls back in their cars. After he has gotten whatever he wants, he will leave you. And if you are always paying for the guy, or if he is always borrowing money from you, your antennae should go up.
A guy who does not want to work and who is always sweet-talking you into lending him money is not a good candidate for a life partner. Tell him to get a job! But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak.

For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. In other words, wisdom is a Spirit. Once you learn that wisdom is a spirit, ask God for wisdom every day and then learn to flow in the Spirit. Learn to walk in the Spirit. One thing about spirits is that they are contagious. If you hang around people who are depressed, you can walk away depressed.

Just like if you are in an environment where a lot of people are smoking, even though you do not smoke, you walk away smelling of smoke. In the same way, wisdom can come by association—" He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed. This reminds me of Stephen in the book of Acts.

I pray that God will give me a mouth and wisdom that no adversary can contradict or resist. I remember many years ago when our church was pretty small, I was just an elder in the church. There was a girl who got saved.
Her boyfriend then was a gangster. After she got saved, she did not want to do certain things that they used to do together. She was radically transformed. So her boyfriend got really angry and said that he was going to confront us in church. During one of the church services, I bumped into him.
I thank God for the cell vision and its strategy to make this happen. I have preached the principles of church mobilisation all my ministerial life and yet up to now I have seen it implemented only in a tiny measure. The cell vision gives us a successful, working model which takes the whole church through a step-by-step process of winning new believers, consolidating them in the faith, discipling them into leadership and sending them out to repeat the process.
This four-stage process is called, The Ladder of Success. My goal is to see every one of you active in this process. Only then will we see the results we are capable of and make the impact in our city and nation that God wants us to make. Born in Kenya in , Colin also lived for a time in Australia before coming to London at the age of 16 to train for a career in the arts. Two years later he accepted Jesus Christ and in he left a successful professional life to attend Bible College.

In , Colin married Amanda. They have one daughter, Elizabeth. In response to the Lord's call to preach and teach, Colin was accepted into the Kensington Temple ministry in Soon after that, Colin began to experience a new and powerful anointing on his life as the Lord released revelation gifts of prophecy, words of knowledge and healing.
In various missions around the world, he began to see signs, wonders and miracles accompany his ministry and rejoiced to see dramatic church growth. Also at this time, Colin founded the International Bible Institute of London which is one of the nation's premier centres of training for ministry. Colin's vision to equip and release workers for the end-time harvest is being fulfilled as hundreds of students pass through the school's various programmes. Over the years Colin has been closely involved in serving KT's vision to set up satellite churches.
He pastored KT's first officially recognised satellite church in Barnet in and planted a church in Northolt. Colin became Senior Minister of KT in and, as a dedicated servant of God with a passion for Christ, is being used by God to build on the successes of the past and take the church forward into the Cell Vision.
