"Kingdom service is not for outdated people, who are no longer in tune with God. It is for those who keep updating themselves with the right spiritual information—those who have continuous communication with God and are committed to self-development. So if you want to be in tune, you must be relevant," says the Zonal Superintendent, Christ Apostolic Church, Light of the World Zone, Pastor Doyin Adeyemi.

Pastor Adeyemi stated this in his message entitled "Kingdom Relevance" published on his official website

The Cleric said kingdom service is not for the unconcerned, unconverted and uncommitted people, adding that God is interested in people who are not expensive but are useful, people whom their impacts are felt in their area of service.

He further said that kingdom service is for those who are not just occupying spaces, or carrying the title, but are effectively serving God in their assigned positions.

He added that "in the Bible days, there are Individuals, Kings, Prophets, People, Assemblies and Church who were the voices at a particular time. But at another time, they were forgotten so much that even God had to bypass them and talked to other people. People and demons don’t know that they still exist just because they were no longer relevant. Their good impact ceased while they were alive."

While commenting on "facts about relevance", Pastor Adeyemi said: "Your relevance stops when you stop growing. You can’t operate beyond your maturity level. One of the problems of the contemporary Church is that we have so many gifted people who are not growing. And your relevance is attached to your growth. Personal improvement is the mother of all improvement. You will be relevant when you are improving. The largest room in the world is room for improvement. Schooling is for a while, continuous education is till death. You must keep studying for as long as you want to be relevant. You can’t be greater than what you don’t know. That is why Paul told Timothy to study to show himself approved  (2 Timothy 2:15)."

"Success stops when stretching stops. According to John Maxwell, success is like fighting a gorilla. You don’t quit when you are tired; you only quit when the gorilla is tired. Enthronement is not for those who are not ready to go the extra mile. Whatever you are not ready to die for, you can’t succeed in it. Continuous training and education is the mother of relevance. When Jesus called us to himself in Matthew 11:28, He called us to come and learn at His feet. So whoever wants to be relevant in Kingdom activity must embrace continuous learning. In Luke 10:38-42, Martha was careful and troubled about many things, but Mary sat at the feet of Jesus to learn, and that was needful. If you want to be useful to God, you have to keep learning at His feet. Great commission-driven members lead to relevant Churches. Matthew 28:19-20, when we as Christians see soul winning as our main focus, it will keep us relevant in our locality. Any church that is not standing on the great commission, and not mobilizing their members to evangelize and win souls for Jesus is not relevant in that locality. To be relevant and current in the Church is not a matter of God will revive His work when He likes, but, a result of deliberate work and labour. You must be willing to grow, evangelize and disciple people."

He said anyone who wants to be relevant in the kingdom service
must keep renewing his/her commitment to God daily, keep accessing oneself in the light of God’s word, continue to fellowship with kingdom-minded people, maintain loyalty to God and the Church, keep serving God, even when it is not convenient, keep learning at God’s feet, keep reaching out to souls in and outside your locality, keep improving yourself prayerfully and otherwise, keep a standard relationship with the Holy Spirit and keep growing in grace.
