Sunday 31st July 2016 was the Breaking of Bread at Blessing Centre in Emmasdale.

Bishop Joe Imakando encouraged the congregation on the sermon, entitled, ‘The Believers Fringe Benefits.’

In the sermon, Bishop Imakando encouraged believers not to forget what the Lord has done for them. ‘The Lord healed us, gave us a job, a business, a child and protected us from all manner of evil attacks’.

In Psalm 103:1-5, ‘Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins
    and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles’.

The following are the fringe benefits:

God’s forgiveness

God who heals our diseases

God redeems us from various pits: pre-mature death, armed robbers, witches and wizards.

God who crowns us with steadfast love and mercy

God who blesses us with good things

You may not have the fringe benefits from your employer but we have the best blessings from God.  

As the congregation took part in the Breaking of Bread, the emblems are symbols of God’s forgiveness, healing, mercy and the goodness of Lord.
