WHAT TO BRING
I thank the Lord for His ministry to souls through the radio station.
This week a young lady from Lwangwa Township who is a regular listener visited the Station. She explained her struggle with anger and self condemnation. Pastor Kaunda counseled from God’s Word. He showed her God’s promise concerning salvation and the assurance of God’s forgiveness for confessed sin.
I have committed to be her accountability partner for her church attendance, Bible study and prayer.
Two students from the Copperbelt University today came to the studio to show appreciation for how the station has helped them in their Christian walk.
If you live in the Kitwe area please tune into Faith Radio on 106.9FM

BIBLICAL LEADERSHIP: A Different Kind of Leader
A Leader After God’s Own Heart
YOU ARE INVITED to attend the 9th annual leadership conference to be held on the campus of Central Africa Baptist College 3-7 December.
Leadership is the subject of much discussion across Africa. Strategies and opinions abound on what it means to be a successful leader.
So important is this subject that in the final hours before Christ’s arrest and subsequent crucifixion, he spoke to His followers about what a godly leadership looks like.
The theme of the 9th annual Central Africa Baptist Leadership Conference will deal with this important subject. This conference will focus on developing a biblical view of leadership in the home, church, work, community and world.
The theme of Leadership Conference this year is “A Different Kind of Leader – A leader after God’s own heart.”
We will right leadership choices, develop attitudes and actions God requires of leaders, and how a leader serves in their relationships with others.
Ten speakers will offer 27 different lessons on the subject of biblical leadership. Lay leaders young and old are invited to attend.
Keynote speakers: Sam Horn & Conrad Mbewe.
Workshop speakers include: (Pst) Saidi Chishimba, (Pst) Brian Fuller, (Pst) Francis Kaunda, (Pst) Isaac Makashini, Felistas Mbewe (Mrs), (Pst) Grave Singogo, Matt Williams and others.

WHEN THE GRASS IS PLENTY ON THE OTHER SIDE.
One is not long in the ministry before they start feeling that their personal needs are overwhelming them. Then we quickly remember that the Lord blesses those who are faithful. But how we easily think that those blessings must always come in financial terms. What happens when we do not see our faithfulness to God translating into material blessings?
In Psalm 73 we meet Asaph who was a leader like many of you and faced a similar temptation. One thing made his feet to almost stumble. When he looked at the prosperity of the wicked his steps nearly slipped. Don’t we find ourselves in similar situations? You labor to be faithful in the things of the Lord but when you look at your neighbor who divorced his wife and run away with another’s wife seems to be prospering financially by the day. You have kept your heart clean but when you look at your unsaved brother he is in and out of jail for driving drunk, his company keeps getting big government contracts. Your children are obedient and faithful in reading their Bibles and attending Sunday school. But the naughty ones at church who keep cursing and are disrespectful are the ones who score the best marks in school.
When we remove our gaze from our master to others materials this can really slow us down. We can grow envious and therefore the ministry could become a pain and a drag. We could also find that we have been caught up in the rat race of this world and the ministry has been relegated into something we just do on Sunday then wait for Monday to get into the real thing. This progression could find that we have sadly arrived at a place where we have abandoned the ministry all together.
I’m not down-playing the fact that resources are necessary while on earth. But there is a temptation we can fall into thinking that we need the money to prove a point. In almost all of Paul’s letters he would emphatically state where his calling was from. That his calling was by the will of God (1 Cor. 1:1), that God alone set him apart for the gospel ministry (Rom. 1:1). In Galatians, Paul spends a considerable long portion of scripture to explain the fact that his apostleship was not from men or through men but only through God. This kind of understanding of one’s calling brethren should act like a bulwark against the temptation to think that a pursuit of the material will give you an edge to ministry.
What was the turning point for the psalmist? Going into the sanctuary of the Lord renewed his mind and his wrong thinking was corrected (vv. 16, 17). We praise the Lord for putting us in a community of believers where we can be accountable. But most important is His Word which is a lamp unto our feet and light unto our paths. Yes the wicked seem to have it smooth while their riches multiply but God tells us that they have been put on slippery ground. What about you who has been following and laboring for the Lord faithfully? He has promised to lead us into a “glorious destiny” (v.25, NLT). What else would a servant of the Lord want? He has promised to be our heritage. Therefore the Word of God must be the lens through which we view everything in this world else we will find ourselves faltering and being discouraged.
The psalmist comes to a very biblical conclusion (vv.25, 26). It is only a continual dependence on the forgiveness that God in Christ has secured for us that will give us joy and confidence in our lives and ministries. Yes your heart and flesh may be tempted to fail but purpose that God will be the strength of your heart and your portion forever (v.26).
