Welcome – 22 September 2019

Deut 8:3 And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, … that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.
It didn't always work. Gratitude turned into moaning as they remembered Egypt's roasts. In truth though, if they went back to Egypt, their backs would be beaten by slave masters. 
For all your desire to live a life which has enough, remember that it's the wilderness experiences from God which teach us how to truly Live – daily dependence on His every word. Meditate on the word, hide it in your heart, speak it to one another, learn it from true teachers.

“Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’….. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, I am strong.” – 2 Cor 12:8-10

Glory belongs to God, and is on display when we are most vulnerable and yielded. Being a frame for God’s glory is Paul’s pleasure and expectation in hard times.

Praise God for worship and preaching where we can learn together like this!

Spring has Sprung again! 
And God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years,  and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth." And it was so. (Gen 1:14-15)
In the same way, we are the Light of the World – holding in our hands the Good News of Jesus Christ, for all to see. This is the True Light, which will last forever, no matter the time or season. May the spring of Spring put you in step with God's Great Plan to shine His glory. 
God has determined it to be, and it will be so!

Welcome 25 August 2019

John 14:1-3,6: “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”.

What a supreme comfort to know that Jesus has prepared a room for His believers after physical death. Not only has He prepared the place in heaven for His own but also promises to return and then take them with Him and be together in eternity. This existence will be in fulfillment of God’s design and a strong affirmation that Christ alone is the way of salvation.
