Thanksgiving Sunday

Written by

As we come to the end of this year, it is time to reflect on God’s goodness through this year and give thanks to God for what He has done. It is time to return to the source of every blessing our heavenly father and show Him we are truly grateful. James 1.17


December 30th has been designed thanksgiving Sundays for us to express our gratitude by giving our best. Our giving should correspond to what God has done for us and our present status in life.


Remember thanksgiving glorifies God. Thanksgiving will attract more blessing into your life. Thanksgiving makes you whole and completes what is lacking in your life.


May God accept your thanksgiving offering and release uncommon blessings in 2013.

Since Sunday 14th October, 2012 Ndola Bread of Life Church has been experiencing unprecedented grace in fellowship, the market place, schools and homes.

Testimony one:

A young lady was in a church service on Sunday 14th October 2012 and had just signed a one year contract with her employers as a casual worker. This was a second contract running. When the word of "Open Doors" came she believed God for a full time job.

On returning to work on Monday she met a huge surprise that she had been offered a three year full-time job and conditions changed. "My dream for school is now a reality", she said.

                                          Ten Times Better
Text: Daniel 1vs1-20
            The book of Daniel narrates an account of Daniel and the other 3 Hebrew boys who extinguished themselves in their conduct and did exploits for their God, in a foreign land.
-life has a way of giving us opportunity in our opportunity we meet our destiny
-It is never an accident
-many have gone through trouble and made it others have not

1. Their Background
-living in their home land Judah, attacked by the Babylonians, taken into captivity against their will, they found themselves in a foreign land, couldn’t speak the language
2. Their opportunity

 God was preparing them for the future
3. Preverleges
-given privileges to eat at the kings table. The best of the land
 When you go to a new place you will find people who will want change you,
 Introduce you to new things, lifestyles,
-Change their names, they were given Babylonian names
   Changed their identity
Why Change their Identity
They were given names of pagan gods that they forget their home and God
-the world can change your name in order to change your identity,they will eventually want you to embrace their God they will want you to worship their God:(Self, money, power and Music)
But don’t be ignorant of the devils tricks
4. Their choice
Their response
Daniel purposed not defile himself
They sacrificed the present for the future
Focus on your mission

Verse 15...their stand
God honoured them, they increased in knowledge

2. God gave them knowledge and skill
3. They were employed in the king’s service
4. They became 10 times better than the others

Gods wants to honour your faithfulness
