Men’s Christian Guild sparks Masvingo White
Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?”
What a moment of blessings, when Presbytery of Zimbabwe Men’s Christian Guild converged at Masvingo Presbyterian Church from the 30th of June to the to the 1st of July 2017. It was the first of its kind to come out successfully and you can imagine how inspired we were.
The Conference ran under a theme;
Jesus Curses the barren Fig Tree.
Curses a Fig Tree
Bible Readings and the Message
18 Early in the morning, as Jesus was on his way back to the city, he was hungry.
19 Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, “May you never bear fruit again!” Immediately the tree withered.
Jesus Curses a Fig Tree and Clears the Temple Courts Jesus
12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs.
14 Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard him say it.
19 When evening came, Jesus and his disciples[c] went out of the city.
20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.
21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!”
22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.
23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” Matthew 21:18-2211:12
