Dr. Bruce Northam - Senior Pastor

A prominent health, wealth and prosperity preacher writes, “The Bible clearly states that God has crowned us with ‘glory and honor’ (Psalm 8:5). The word ‘honor’ could also be translated ‘favor’, and favor means, ‘to assist, to provide with special advantages and to receive preferential treatment’. In other words, God wants to assist you, to promote you, to give you advantages. But to experience more of God’s favor, we must live more ‘favor minded’. We must expect God’s help and release our faith, knowing that God wants to assist us. We can expect preferential treatment not because of who we are, but because of whose we are. It is not because we are better than anybody else or that we deserve it. It is because our father is the King of kings and His glory and honor spill over onto us.” Sounds good, doesn’t it? But the words of Jesus to His disciples in John 15:18-27.
