Welcome Sunday 8 December 2019

“Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning…then you also will abide in the Son and in the Father…the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.” (1 John 2,24-27)

Abiding rightly is the secret of faithfulness and hence of strength. It means to stick with, to cling to, while the choice remains to leave or abandon. We have the precious gospel planted in our souls – the world tries to coax, or force it out with seductive promises or dire threats to our lives.

Don’t leave the harbour of the Lord: abide, anchored to that Rock of salvation. And if you’ve let go – go back and make fast again. Christmas is coming.

Hebrews 10:22 & 24.  … let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,…

Three conditions are given for drawing near to God: a true heart, assurance of faith and a heart cleaned from an evil conscience. We also have a duty to encourage and love one another. We can have a conscience free from evil because it is based on a once-for-all sacrifice of Christ.

This is God’s Word speaking to us!

Welcome 10 November 2019

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

(Psa 139:11-16)

 

How comforting it is to know that we serve a God who knows us and loves us.  He knows our thoughts and our paths, he knows the words we speak, before we have even spoken them.  He knows us completely, and yet He still loves us.  He loved us so much, that He sent His only Son to die on a cross for us, to pay the debt that we could never pay.  Let us join the psalmist and praise the Almighty!  

Welcome – 3 November 2019

Welcome once again, dear Family of God.
I highly recommend our seminar "Family Money Matters", because it does! Dr John Temple will be in Knysna for the month of November and has kindly agreed to share his insights, based on his book by the same name. Book your diary!
We are fast approaching the end of the year and I'm also excited for the events that we have lined up to connect with one another and give thanks to Christ for His grace in 2019. Indeed, in Him we live, and move, and have our being. The very breath we breathe is enjoyed best only with Him!
May we come away renewed this day with a deeper gratitude to Jesus.
He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,  that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him (Act 17:26-27)
