There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1-2)
What a wonderful message we have from Paul to all who are in Christ Jesus that we are not subject to final punishment and judgment. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all involved in setting us free from the law of sin and death.
Let us rejoice always but especially every Sunday in this truth, as we hear the Word of God preached faithfully and truthfully. Let us love one another as Christ loved us. Your presence here today is a great encouragement for your brothers and sisters in Christ and especially for the preacher.
True freedom only comes when we love the Lord Jesus as our Saviour.
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.
Jesus is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe. If that isn’t worthy enough of our worship, He gave up His glory to dwell amongst us. And then died for us, paying our debt so that we may be reconciled with the Father.
This is who we worship. This is our God! How awesome is He.
Welcome to our service!
This morning as we worship together, may we sense the Lord’s presence with us.
God has promised to be with His people. Isaiah 7:14: “…Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel – God with us!” What a wonderful God and Saviour He is! He is with us as He has promised in Matthew 28:19-20: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, … to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”
Let us worship Him with every part of our being. Lord Jesus we know that You dwell in us. May we enjoy Your fellowship today. Amen.
Paul’s Thanksgiving and Prayer
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. (Phil 1:3-4)
Paul was excited and joyful to pray for the saints at Philippi as they have partnered with him in advancing the gospel. Paul had given thanks for the gift they send in support of his needs. Like Paul, we also get excited when the saints partner with us. We understand that not all have been called to be preachers or evangelists, but all have the opportunity to support those who have.
Are you actively supporting those who are preaching the good news? If not, let this be encouragement for you. You can do so through financial aid and praying for the preachers and evangelist locally at KBC and those missionaries in the field.
Hope you enjoy the service!
Grace and peace to you.
