MANY ARE BORN AGAIN BUT FEW ARE DEDICATED
IT IS ONLY THOSE WHO ARE PLANTED THAT FLOURISH
TO BE DISTINGUISHED, YOUR LIFE MUST BE A SEED
DEDICATION BEGINS WITH AFFECTION FOR GOD, GRADUATES TO DEVOTION AND MATURES TO ADDICTION
YOUR LEVEL OF DEDICATION WILL DETERMINE THE HEIGHT YOU WILL ATTAIN IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD
DEDICATION IS THE SECRET FOR ONE TO BE A KINGDOM WONDER
TO BECOME A KINGDOM WONDER, DO WHAT IS REQUIRED AND YOU GET WHAT YOU DESIRE

Second Service, Salvation Ministries Home of Success.
Shall we lift our hands to Heaven this morning and give Him praise and glory. Church Gist. Exalt Him because no one is like Him, forever He is on the throne. He is worthy to be glorified, blessed be God forever in Jesus’ most wonderful name.
– I decree this month of July with praise in action, every one ahead of you, you will overtake them. Church Gist. God’s hand will come mightily upon you, you will overtake those ahead of you.
This month is our month of, ‘LET’S PRAISE HIM’ and today we will be looking at, ‘BECOMING A KINGDOM WONDER’ Part 2 (Dedication). Becoming a kingdom wonder is a possibility. Church Gist. All you need to do is to do what is required, and you get what you desire. Becoming means it is a process. You don’t become a medical doctor just by wishing, you become a medical doctor by going through medical school. Church Gist. You can never become a professor by confessing it. You have to be a professor you must pay the price for it. Musicians in Lagos they answer everything. They say, ‘Barrister, Commander, Professor’ but those ones are not recognized.
What is dedication? Dedication is the secret for one to be a Kingdom wonder. John 12:24-26. Fruitful Christianity has to do with deadness to self. Church Gist. It does not mean physical death, it is talking about dedication. Your level of dedication will determine the height you will attain in the Kingdom of God.
Dedication begins with affection for God. It graduates to devotion and matures to addiction. Church Gist. Many say they are dedicated; the question is, ‘at what rate and at what level are you dedicated?’ In Psalm 92:13-15, even in the natural, you don’t see a tree here today and see the tree somewhere tomorrow. If you come 100 years, where the tree was planted, that’s where it will remain. Church Gist. God is saying, the kinds of people that will flourish in the house of God are those who stay put in His house; not the ‘wakabouts, not those who move about for miracles.’
It is only those who are planted that flourish. So, if I want to stand out, I must be sold out to Jesus. To be distinguished, your life must be a seed. Church Gist. Many are born again but few are dedicated. Altar call makes you a child of God, dedication makes you a disciple of God. Disciples don’t move anyhow.
When everybody left, Jesus asked the 12, ‘won’t you go away?’ Peter said, ‘we can’t go away; you have the words of eternal life.’
In Mark 4:26-29, When you plant a seed, you don’t bother yourself with growth. You don’t go every morning to say, ‘seed I prophesy to you to grow.’ Just plant your seed on a good soil and it grows. Church Gist. So, dedication is the end to all struggles. When you just dedicate your life, you don’t get up every day and say, O God bless me; you’re blessed. You don’t say, O God I need money, it just comes.
