i.        A burden is a heavy load or weight which a person generally, reluctantly carries on the head or back.  Sometimes it is lifted onto a cart and pushed along our traditional markets, streets or alleys.

ii.       At the spiritual level a burden is a certain measure of suffering or affliction, pain or distress, arising from physical, mental or material loss that an individual is called upon to bear. John 5:1-14.

iii.      A burden can make life tough for the bearer. Example – Blind Bartimaeus, Mark 10:46-52.

Topic:                  The Sources Of The Burden

Moderator:                   Mrs. Titilola Awe

Praise Worship Leader:           Dr (Mrs) P.T. Sotunmbi


i.        The principal source is satan

a.       He tricked Adam and Eve into disobedience. Gen. 3:1-6.  The curses which followed were beyond their capacity to bear, Gen. 3:16-19

b.       Out of sheer envy, he inflicted unbearable pain and shame on Job. He would have destroyed him if God had not set a clear limit to his plan, Job 1:12

c.       He is the source of most illnesses and diseases, Lk. 13:10-17.

2.       Other sources

i.        Disobedience/sin/flesh which alienates God from even His own children, resulting in affliction, failure and, sometimes death, I Sam. 28:6, I Sam. 4:12-18




Week 3:               March 20

Topic:                  Christ The Burden Bearer

Moderator:                   Mr. Biodun Keyede

Praise Worship Leader:           Mrs. C.S. Akingbade

i.        Christ came to the world to set man free from the power of satan and to destroy his works, Lk. 4:18; I John 3:8.  Man could never have faced satan on his own.  He needed a saviour.

ii.       To achieve His mission He had to  

a.       take insults from, and persecution by, those he co-created with God the Father, John 1:3, John 5:16

b.       endure unbearable pain on the cross, leading to His death and resurrection

c.       Jesus shouldered the burden that was too heavy for Adam’s descendants.
