There are so many places we could have gone for our end of school year activity, but we chose to attend a service at the Deliverance Baptiste Church. This service was a special one that was greatly appreciated by all who attended, including members of the church.
The service was officiated by Pastor David Serrant and “Praise and Worship” was led by the Hilltop Singers.
Pastor Serrant gave a deep reflection of a reading taken from 1st King 3:5 – 14. He said that God has a design for the life of each one of us, something special. “Unfortunately we have missed the boat because we have a mind of our own which sometimes lead us astray and so we need to get back on the boat”.
Pastor Serrant used King Solomon as an example to teach us the true meaning of ‘success’. He said that success is not achieving all what we want in life; it is including God in our life. To be successful, one need to walk in the right path, doing what is right.
He informed the students that they can hide from their teachers, parents and even friends, but they cannot hide from God. He also told those gathered that the God we serve is a relevant God who is active in our life.
“Never come to the conclusion that you have it all! Always be dependent on God. Depend on him for his wisdom and guidance just like Solomon did in the book of kings. Do not keep God outside of your life. Make a request like Solomon; not for riches but asking Him to enter into your life. Ask God to show you what is right from wrong. As students you must try to act like Solomon. Ask the Lord for the ability to know and chose right from wrong”.
According to Pastor Serrant, wisdom is putting into practice what one knows. He advised students that when asking the Lord for things, don’t always ask for material things. ‘Don’t let the things you desire get the better of you’.
Mr. Pinard brought the service to an end with a song entitled “Seek Him Now While You are Young”. The vote of thanks was done by Denzel George, a 4th form student.
After the church service, the school went to the Home for the Aged to donate some dry goods, visit the residents and to put smiles on their faces. The visit touched the hearts of many students.
To God Be The Glory!
