To function effectively in "The Year of the Greater Light" here are more things you must do. Remember, instructions are for your life. This is God's Word to you
1. Give Yourself to the Ministry of the Word (1 Peter 2:2):
Spiritual growth comes by the Word. The Word of God is food for our Spirit therefore in this year we must give serious consideration to the Word of God (Joshua 1:8). In this Year of the Greater Light, the Word of God is the only thing that can change your state in life. The word of God has transforming power (2 Corinthians 3:18). When you spend time studying, listening and meditating on the Word of God over a period of time, your attitude, mindset, and belief systems will change. You'll suddenly realize that you are different and you have become a better person.
As you give yourself to the Word in 2010, it will grow and prevail in every area of your life producing in you what it talks about (Acts 19:20). The Word of God is the life in you, the very essence of your existence. (Proverbs 4:20 - 22). Know your prayer and meditation time in 2010. Make your meditation time purposeful and consistent.
2. Pray In Tongues Consistently (1 Corinthians 14:4):
Speaking in tongues is not optional for the child of God for your success this year is dependent on your walk with the Spirit.You can build up and improve every area of your life by speaking in tongues. When you pray in other tongues, your spirit is alert and fine-tuned to the things of the Spirit. Praying in tongues exposes your spirit to the mature things of the spirit and causes you to put away childish things. This means that for you to experience serious spiritual growth, you must speak in tongues consistently.
Praying in tongues helps your spirit to be sensitive to the realities of the kingdom. Praying in other tongues also conditions your spirit to receive from God. It is therefore important that we pray in other tongues in the year 2010 like never before (Ephesians 6:18). Speaking in tongues was one of the secrets to apostle Paul's success.
3. Get Involved In The House of God (Ephesians 4:11 - 16):
Get involved in the house of God, it helps you express the gifts of God inside you. It helps you to find your place and standout as a blessing to the Church and your world at large (John 5:33 - 35). You can be involved in the activity groups in the church like the Soul Winners club, First Timers Ministry etc. Always volunteer to help in the house of God.
Remember the word of our woman of God Pastor Ose for this quarter - VISION 2020 which means our target for the quarter is to win 20 souls each. Acts 20 v 20 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house......
Listen to this.......
And keep winning souls in the house of God. This keeps your relevance in the house of God on tops!

The Lord Jesus said, “… I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth” (Luke 15:10), and He used the parable of the prodigal son to elucidate on this statement. This parable is of utmost importance. Consider the father’s response to his son’s return and the ensuing homecoming celebration. You see, every time you win a soul to the Lord, you’re creating much celebration in heaven. Just as the Lord Jesus said, there’s much rejoicing in heaven when a soul converts to the Lord. The angels celebrate so much over one sinner that repents because that’s the purpose for the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible says the Lord is unwilling that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9), and for this reason He patiently waits for us to win them. Make soul winning your utmost priority today; let your mind be preoccupied with it. Come up with effective strategies to win more and more people to the Lord. Let’s make it an endless celebration for the angels and the hosts of heaven.
