Welcome – 20 October 2019

…they were serving … you, … by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.  Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.  (1Peter 1:12-13)
This is what God is doing. Restoring all creation under Christ. And the angels look on with great surprise that sinners can be restored too. Even more than that, completely Justified before Him! Are you one of those who have accepted His grace? Or are you still in darkness? Come to Jesus Christ, and find the restoration you were made for!

Welcome to Knysna Baptist Church! Scripture says that:

“Blessed is the man

who walks not in the counsel of the wicked…but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.”

 

With so many distractions in today’s world. i.e, social media and television, it is sometimes difficult for us to remain faithful to meditate on God’s words. The blessing is, that His very word is food to the soul and if we delight in it, we will want more and more! God is pleased if our delight is in His word.

 

If this week has been a difficult one making time for his word, you have an opportunity to listen to God speak through the preaching of His word as we fellowship together.

It is therefore my prayer that your soul be stirred up for the Lord and your faith be strengthened as you feast on that which will be set before you this morning!

Grace and peace!

John 15:4-5: Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

What a wonderful analogy – Jesus is the vine and we as His followers are privileged to be the branches. Attached to Him and receiving His nourishment and strength, in order to bear fruit. Let us forget about the world as we come to church, listen to the Word preached, and remember as part of the vine our faith can be strengthened and enriched.

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. 

And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbour as yourself.  On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets. 

 

Matthew 22:37-40 (ESV)

                                        

By seeking the face of Christ, the Glory of God, we will grow in amazement and wonder of Him.  Our love for Him will overflow in our hearts. Only then will we truly love our neighbours as ourselves.


Blessings,

Mark

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.
