The Year of Transformation
Special Mothers Day Edition
Happy Mothers Day!
"You Better Learn To Honor One Another" by Bishop Rick Williams Sr
"We will continue to keep the Cellent family in our prayers."
Holy Spirit was present during Sunday Morning service. There were visual signs of love, honor, freedom and liberty, as we not only honored our mothers, but honored one another.
There is TRULY a transformation going on in the C.I.C.A.N ministry and the Body of Christ as a whole. We thank God that Bishop listened to his voice concerning 2013 being the "Year of Transformation." As we each individually look at "self" we realize we each need to be transformed.
"Iron sharpens iron." Although being sharpened doesn't feel pleasant, we welcome the change! "Going from change to transformation is a process." We each are being transformed into the image and likeness of God our creator. The finished product is going to be splendid!
There was no "set" sermon today. Bishop Williams spoke freely from his heart on the subject of honor. Here are a few "Healthy Nuggets" from today's service:
1. You better learn to honor one another
2. Its not about you or how you feel.
3. What we do effects hundreds of people.
4. Do not tell someone you love them if you will not honor them.
5. Our mothers need us.
6. Do not hold grudges against your mother. Forgive her and let it go.
7. During the week, call your mother to say "I love you" or "I was just thinking about you."
8. Honor your mother.
"Ephesians 6:2-3 Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; 3 That it may be well with thee, and thou may live long on the earth."
In Honor and Recognition of C.I.C.A.N'S First Lady, Pastor Denise Scott Williams
10Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
16She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
18She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
19She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
23Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
31Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
