Yay!! My Pastor is on Twitter!! The Pastor of Hillsongs Church, Tottenham Court Road branch is now on Twitter! Whoop! Go! Follow! He’s a great guy! By the way, he’s on Instagram with the same handle. Funny but I didn’t know his name till he said during the service about his new subscription to these platforms.

So I attended the 11am worship service on Sunday the 2nd, and it warmed my heart to hear that there were a lot of activites lined up this Christmas season so people don’t have to be alone.

That’s what church should be, isn’t it? Yes, if you asked me. Church should be there for you when you’re lonely; church should fill the gaps in our lives. Trust me, I’m not saying don’t work, isolate yourself from your friends and family and then become a charity case for the church; I’m saying churches need to wake up to the fact that people don’t care what Word of God you preach till they know how much you care.

On to the service now. @garyjamesclark taught for the third week on the Holy Spirit, was very instructive. Some scriptures for ya:

Luke 3:22 “and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”


John 20:19-22 ” On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said,“Peace be with you!” 20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.

21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

He said, the same way God breathed the breath of life into Adam and Eve is the same way the Holy Spirit brings life to our everyday circumstances. He turns our ordinary into extraordinary.

He also said that sometimes we see the Holy Spirit only as the third person in the Trinity, and not as the fountain of help, comfort, wisdom and strength we can draw from.

I loved the prayer he had us pray at the end of the sermon: what do you want to come alive in your life? Have you asked the Holy Spirit? Can I throw that at us today? Anything in our lives  needing resurrection? Anything we’ve battled with all year and feel like we’re about to give up? Could it be a relationship, family, an issue at work?

Have you asked the Holy Spirit for help? Go on… Ask Him…

Amen! Just in case you want to attend any of the services/activities Hillsongs has this season, find them here! I hate to say it but I won’t be attending the Christmas Live at Wembley event billed for the 21st cos I’ll be in Nigeria!! Wish I could stay….
