Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr - Sermon

16 January 2015

Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr is most famously recognised as one of the most prominent faces of the African American Civil Rights Movement in the USA. He is the face of peaceful yet persistent protest. He was also a much respected Pastor. I was watching a video on Youtube and this sermon was mentioned. 

The Drum Major Instinct Sermon - discusses living within your means. He talks about this need that people have to over stretch their finances so they can compete with other people and prove their worth. In other words materialism and consumerism which we can see today. This constant need to out do the Jones' to a point of destruction. He even goes further in regards to the supposed friends people will claim to have just to prove their worth.

The church culture is mentioned too. King states that Church is the one place where the doctor lawyer  teacher should be able to go and forget their titles etc. Otherwise church just becomes no better than a social club. (paraphrased)

The Bible reference given for this sermon is Mark 10:35-45. I encourage you to listen to the full sermon below. What he says definitely applies to todays society.

Legendary Gospel singer songwriter Andrae Crouch passed away on the 8th January 2015 at the age of 72 after suffering a heart attack.

Crouch was known for his amazing work in gospel and  secular circuits with top artists such as Michael Jackson. He also wrote songs for movies such as the Lion King. Throughout his career he was lauded with many awards including Grammy's and Dove awards.

In a statement his twin sister Sandra Crouch said "Today my twin brother, my womb-mate and best friend went home to be with the Lord. Please keep me, my family and our church family in your prayers. I tried to keep him here but God loved him best."

As I read Christian blogs I always come across posts about the COGIC church sermons. The Church of God in Christ is known for not holding back the Bible truth in it's sermons. Bishop Iona Locke has indeed preached up a storm and called out church folk on their worldly behaviours that some have allowed to creep into the church. She mentions a lot from the music that is being played in the church to the morals of church members especially of those holding office. So worth a listen.
