Losing Your Relevance? Sermon And Prayer Point By Pastor E A Adeboye

Matthew_5-14: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid, I Am The Light Of The World

Matthew_5-14: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid, I Am The Light Of The World


Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Matthew 5:13







Read: John 15:1-2

1  I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

2  Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

3  Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

4  Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

5  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

6  If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

7  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

8  Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

9  As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

10  If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

11  These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.

12  This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

The presence of God is very crucial in the life of anyone who wants to be influential in the things that pertain to righteousness. Any child of God who does not carry the presence of God will fail because he will be struggling when he is supposed to be shining. In the reign of King Solomon, he observed that all those who could have easily refused to obey his commands submitted to him instead. Only the presence of God guarantees such. 1 Chronicles 29:25 says that,

“And the LORD magnified Solomon exceedingly in the sight of all Israel, and bestowed upon him such royal majesty as had not been on any king before him in Israel.”






Are your subordinates rebellious or despising you? Go and receive the power of God’s presence. Are you hiding instead of manifesting? Are your children refusing to submit to your instructions? It means you need more of God’s presence.

There are many people who have lost their relevance because they are too choosy. Many people struggle for kingdom assignments that feed their ego, while they run away from some other tasks. Some people will give God a list of why what He is asking them to do cannot be done. Making excuses to God can place you on the wrong side of His judgment (Luke 9:61-62). Excuses can move an individual from relevance to irrelevance. As a genuine Christian, wherever you find yourself, you must be concerned about impacting lives (Matthew 5:16). While David was in the cave of Adullam, all kinds of people with all sorts of problems came to him (1 Samuel 22:1-2). With the presence of God in the life of David, the problems of these people were solved and their status changed. Your success would be measured to a large extent by the number of lives that changed in your ministry.






If your ministry cannot impact lives for good, it is either you are not salt, or you have lost your savour. Several years ago, I visited a friend. During my visit, I observed that his youngest daughter was carried on the back of her mother. This girl would just not allow anyone else to carry her except her mother. As I arrived at the house, the baby stretched forth her hands for me to carry her, and I did. Afterwards, I prayed for her and left. Months later, the mother of this girl confessed that on the day I visited, plans had been concluded to take the life of the baby, but these plans failed. You must pray earnestly so that your life, your ministry and your family can have more relevance in the Body of Christ. When many fall in the midst of trials, temptations and pressures, it is not because the grace of God is not there; rather it is due to a gradual loss of relevance.







Prayer Point:

Father, remove everything that is hindering my relevance in this generation.







May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!




May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!

  1. In you, O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness.
    Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.
    Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me.
    Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge.
    Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth.
    I hate those who cling to worthless idols; I trust in the LORD.
    I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.
    You have not handed me over to the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place.
    Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief.
    My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my affliction, [1] and my bones grow weak.
    Because of all my enemies, I am the utter contempt of my neighbors; I am a dread to my friends– those who see me on the street flee from me.
    I am forgotten by them as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery.
    For I hear the slander of many; there is terror on every side; they conspire against me and plot to take my life.
    But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.”
    My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me.
    Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.
    Let me not be put to shame, O LORD, for I have cried out to you; but let the wicked be put to shame and lie silent in the grave. [2]
    Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous.
    How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you.
    In the shelter of your presence you hide them from the intrigues of men; in your dwelling you keep them safe from accusing tongues.
    Praise be to the LORD, for he showed his wonderful love to me when I was in a besieged city.
    In my alarm I said, “I am cut off from your sight!” Yet you heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help.
    Love the LORD, all his saints! The LORD preserves the faithful, but the proud he pays back in full.
    Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD
