Keep your eyes on Jesus—SDA head
Thousands of Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) members on Saturday braved heavy rains to attend a Big Sabbath at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe, presided over by SDA Global President, Ted Wilson.
In his sermon during the Big Sabbath, held under the theme ‘Total Member Involvement’, Wilson urged Malawians to prepare for the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Wilson urged the members to be humble like Jesus who came onto the earth not to seek earthly glory but to establish the heavenly kingdom.
He encouraged the members of the church to be prayerful, saying prayer is the answer to the challenges they are facing.
“When you take your eyes off Jesus, something terrible will happen to you,” he said, citing an account in the bible of what happened to Peter on the sea.
“Keep your eyes on Jesus. Keep your eyes on God’s word. Do not let the devil to take your eyes off Jesus,” Wilson said.
SDA Malawi Union Conference President, Frackson Kuyama, expressed happiness with Wilson’s visit.
He said he was happy to welcome the global leader of the church while at the helm of the local church.
SDA Southern Africa Indian Ocean Division, Solomon Maphosa, urged SDA members in Malawi to remain united for the church to continue to grow.
Wilson arrived in the country on Friday through Kamuzu International Airport and is on Sunday expected to visit Malamulo Campus in Thyolo and the Blantyre Adventist Hospital, before leaving the country on Monday for Angola.
