Christian Professionals Sunday

By Dr. Kalasa Mwanda:

The Role of a Christian Professional in Building the Lord’s Tabernacle.
A professional is a person who is engaged or qualified in a profession.
Professionals in the bible:
A. The Apostle Paul wrote 13 books of the bible: Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Timothy, Titus, Corinthians, Thessalonians etc.
B. Luke, the Evangelist, a disciple of Paul. Fathers of the early church ascribed to him authorship of 2 voluminous books of the New Testament: Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles – accounting for 27% of text in the New Testament
Did God choose these professionals because of their skill or they got skilled because they were chosen.
GOD DOES NOT CALL THE QUALIFIED HE QUALIFIES THE CALLED.
1 Corthians1:27-29, Jeremiah 1:5

Benefits of building the Lords Tabernacle as a professional:
Exodus 23:25-28
-He will bless our bread and water
-He will take away sickness from our midst
-There will be no miscarriage
-There will be no barrenness
-There will be no premature death
How Does a Christian Professional position themselves for greater Participation in building the “Tabernacle” in this Season? 
A. Total humility - Ephesians 3:8
B. Obedience - 1Samnuei 15:22, Proverbs 21:3
-Making yourself available for kingdom tasks.

As a Christian Professional in this Season of Taking Over, and this month of pressing on:
-What has been our role in building the Lord’s Tabernacle?
-What has been our role in supporting the Ministry of His word?
-What has been our in supporting the vulnerable girl-child and the needy amongst us?
-What has been our role in evangelism and reaching out to the lost souls?

==========================================

Christian Professional Ministry Sunday

Mrs. Pauline Simwaba
Text: Romans 12:4-8 Luke 5:1-9
The Blessing of having Professionals in the House of God.

Professionals are people who are skilled and have expert knowledge (trained & qualified). They belong to Professional bodies affiliation – e.g. ZIM, Teaching Profession Code of Ethics (SI 1 2018), LAZ, etc.
Characteristics of professionalism 
Appearance, Demeanor, Reliability, Competence, phone etiquette, etc.
Professionalism + Christianity= influential, integrity, quality & quantity of output light & salt of the earth 
Professionals are from different works of life. Examples of professionals in the bible:
Paul– Tent-maker Act 18; 2-3
Luke – Physician Col 4:14
1. The example of Simon Peter
-He was a fisherman: this represents the various occupations and professions we have.
- The washing of nets
They had knocked off going home. The Lord asked Simon to perform a certain task after he had knocked off.
-Results of obedience (availability)
How can you come in as a professional? 
- Participation in the ministries
•You are serving God
•You are blessing others with your skill, character, etc. as you interact.
•You demystify the notion that professionals are 
unapproachable, unsociable, (they are people like you and me!)
-Avail self by offering expert knowledge in the Bread of Life Health Services, Bookshop, Building projects etc 
Common excuse for not serving
I do not have time
I do not know what to do
I do not have any special skills to contribute
They do not need me. But Simon was needed…
The lord does not call the equipped, he equips the called.(Moses, David) 
Benefits of Professionals in the Church
Professionals’ participation in the clinic, school – results in providing quality service at much lower cost and a greater impact on the community.
Outsiders such as NGOs and will get to see what we are doing and will begin supporting the good work being conducted.
If we get involved in our numbers (thousands), what an impact we will make on the community and the nation  at large.
