Photos of our first baptism in Lagos, Nigeria.

Our first baptism in Lagos, Nigeria occurred on Sunday, July 30, 2017. Due to illness, only two of the five baptismal candidates were able to be baptized on that date. However, we pray by the grace of God that the others will have the opportunity to be baptized very soon.

 

May the Lord help us in this great commission He has entrusted to us. Let us keep our new brethren in our prayers as well as the work in Lagos that He may prosper it.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven," Matthew 5:3. 

 

In His famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus issued seven special blessings which are worthy of serious considerations, as they present the essential characteristics of His true followers. In this article we will give special attention to the first one: “Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

With our sinful human nature, we find it much easier to talk “about” a brother instead of talking “to" him. However, that is not the step outlined in the Bible. What are the steps given to us in addressing an erring brother or sister?

“Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ,” Galatians 6:1, 2.

 

Christ and His apostles left clear instructions on how to deal with those who give in to temptation. These divine instructions are found throughout the whole Bible.
