SON SHINE 64: FANFARE
The familiar post-service chatter was on this cool Kano, Nigeria, evening, when the woman moved close to three others in front of the church where the special programme was continuing, and hailed: ?great man of God.? She proceeded to elaborate on the organizing minister?s spiritual exploits. There was silence, and the discussion continued. It was a scene in a common acknowledgement of ?giants? with varying credentials, who are often not in a hurry to give the glory of their ?achievements? to the true owner of ministry.
?I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.? ? Isaiah 42: 8 (KJV)
Are you also one of the superstars in the church?
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
