Hurray! Our yearly jam is here again and I’m sure you wondering what the theme for this year’s One Life Jam is, in fact, we are going to just dance. The theme is ‘Just Dance’ some people are probably asking questions like – what is One life jam and why that name right? Just relax because am going to take you on a journey.
What is One Life Jam
The word Jam in this context is actually a slang which means to play an instrument with much intensity and dancing to it, One comes from the word once and Life simply means the existence of an individual human being. I have clearly broken down the meaning of these three words. Now let’s put this together starting from the last word which is jam.
We are playing instruments with much intensity (music) to a point that we can’t but move our feet (dance) the reason been that we have only one life to live on this earth and that life isn’t even ours so how else can we be thankful for a life that has been freely given to us if not to meet as children of God to show HIM gratitude as well as win more souls into the kingdom of God. During the #onelifejam campaign, we harness creative arts in order to boldly declare to the world that Jesus is Lord.
The Extraordinary 2018 Jam
last year was #intoxicated but this year is #JustDance. Wondering why the change of theme? Every year comes with its own package depending on what God has led us to do. Our FATHER has asked us to #JustDance# to the Glory of HIS name.
In Psalm 150, the Word of God encourages us to praise the Lord in every way possible so the theme is inspired by the power of praise and joy in the HOLY SPIRIT. As we lift up the name of the Lord to praise HIM victory becomes ours no matter the trials we are going through. You have a reason to praise HIS name. From January till now have you heard of stories of people who died? People sic and sad stories? but you are still alive that alone should give you a reason to praise and dance to the Glory of HIS name. Your life will never be the same after this jam.
This concert is a joint collaboration between all church branches of Love Economy church with the sole of gathering the harvest God has prepared for us. A lot of things goes into it, from music, rap, spoken word then to dance. A lot of people will be led to Christ through creative arts because our FATHER in heaven is a man of creativity.
Why One Life Jam?
This jam isn’t just for show but for the increment of the kingdom of God. Before the day of the jam, we go on a mob dance. We visit various tertiary institutions to pull out students from their hostels to join us dance to the Glory of God. We take advantage of this to make speak to them about Christ and we make them see the joy one experiences in the presence of God. Also during Onelifejam, we do an altar call for people to give their lives to Christ afterward we lead them to Christ. Isn’t this amazing? Heaven is full of joy when a single soul is won how much more many souls especially young people because they are more prone to life’s challenges and interesting offers.
It paves way for miracles and God’s unfailing power to be displayed. When high praise is given, God moves mountains, HE shakes things. Miraculous things will happen on that day while we praising God just have that at the back of your mind. The sick are healed even as people dance, the lame will walk, the blind will see, the deaf will hear and the broken hearted will all be healed. It doesn’t matter what you come to the Jam with.
Praise the Lord, my soul and don’t forget not all HIS benefits who forgives all your sins and heals your diseases.
About midnight Paul and slash were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them and suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. And immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s bonds were unfastened.
GOD will be fighting your battles for you even as you are dancing and praising HIM
2 Chronicles 20:22
As they began to sing and praise, the LORD set ambushes against the men of Ammonia and Moan and Mount Sir who were invading Judah and they were defeated
An opportunity to show gratitude/Thanksgiving
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble and HE saved them from their distress, HE sent out HIS word and healed them he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the Lord for the unfailing love and HIS wonderful deeds for mankind.
Onelifejam creates an avenue for you to thank God, to praise HIS HOLY, to magnify HIS name. He has saved you from many troubles and relieved u of a lot of distress what else can you offer if not Thanksgiving?
