We serve a God that never Fails. His blessings are new every morning and He also expects us to bring our praise to Him everyday. He is the God of yesterday, today, and forever. He is not a respecter of persons. He can never change. Psalm 34:1-2 says “I will bless The Lord at all times and His praise shall continually be in my mouth, my soul shall make her boast in The Lord”. God wants us to change from singing songs of defeat, grumbling and lamentation into singing songs of joy, songs of praise, songs of victory, songs of deliverance and songs of adoration.         
1. Singing An New Song: We should sing a new song unto The Lord. There are many references in the Bible showing us that we should sing a new song unto The Lord. Ps. 33:3 says “Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy”. Ps. 40:3 says “He puts a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God; many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD”. Ps. 96:1 says “Sing to the LORD, a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth”. Ps. 98:1 says “Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him”. Ps. 144:9 says “I will sing a new song to you, O God; on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you”. Ps. 149:1 says “Praise the LORD. Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the saints”. Isa 42:10 says “Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth”. We must learn to sing a new song in every situation.

Mother's Day is the occasion when we celebrate all mothers in our lives. Mothers have many roles and we want to celebrate their virtues by using the Acronym: M-O-T-H-E-R. We pray for all mothers that you will remain joyful all the days of your life and you shall eat the labor of your hands. You shall be mightily rewarded for your good work upon your family and you shall forever be celebrated.          
M – Mentor:  A mentor is an experienced and trusted adviser. One of the major roles of mothers is advising their children. Hannah the mother of Samuel mentored his son. After Samuel was born, he went to live in the house of Eli the priest. The two sons of Eli were corrupt in their ways but because Samuel had received good mentoring from his mother, the sons of Eli could not influence him to join in their bad behavior (I Samuel 2: 12 – 20)

This message is a continuation of the series “Destined for Greatness” and I want to use this occasion of the ninth anniversary celebration of JHES to emphasize again that as God's children, we are destined for greatness. Under this topic, we have discussed the dimensions of greatness, and the price of greatness. We have talked about the price Jesus paid and the price we must pay. We have talked about the price of holiness and the price of separation, now I want us to talk about another price we must pay which is: Sowing the seeds of greatness.             
A seed is a flowering plant's unit of reproduction. A seed can also refer to the offspring, progeny or descendants of a person. It can also refer to a financial sacrifice, or the labor of our hands, or our time. Anything we give away to others or to God is a seed. A seed has many characteristics. In the natural, there are certain conditions for growth of a seed. I. It must be viable, that is, capable of developing into another such plant. II. It requires a good soil to grow. III. It requires water. III. It requires moisture. IV. It requires the right temperature. In the spiritual realm, our seeds of greatness must have the right conditions to grow. In Matt. 13, Jesus told the parable of the sower. Only the seed that fell on fertile ground produced an increase.
