Welcome – 29 August 2021

The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him
The LORD is the strength of his people; 
he is the saving refuge of his anointed.. Psalm 28:7-8

Unprecedented strain is upon the world that some even expect we are on the verge of "end-times tribulation". Burdens seem to be increasing faster than the efforts of relief – wars, pandemic, weather and evil. For the Christian, though, there remains a deep stillness through it all. Our strength, protection, help, joy and refuge is not found in anything from this crumbling creation – but in the Creator.

We are "the anointed" people of God – He has set His affections on us, and determined to deliver us to Himself. Keep your eyes on the LORD!

"Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, "THE REPROACHES OF THOSE WHO REPROACHED YOU FELL ON ME." For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement, grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God". – Romans 15:1-7

Dearest Church Family
Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, is our perfect example of how we should strengthen others and live to the Glory of God. We are blessed even further by having the scriptures instructing and encouraging us to live a life pleasing to God. Paul urges us all to pursue unity. With one mind, with one voice, the purpose of unity is to Glorify God and Him alone. By faith in Jesus Christ and all that He has done for us through His life, death and resurrection, our unity with Him; let us sing Glory to our God, in unity.
In Christ Alone
Matthew

Welcome 08 August 2021

For as in one body we
have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we,
though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them:
if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one
who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one
who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does
acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

Rom 12:4-8

 

Greetings in the matchless name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ.  What a compelling reminder from
the Apostle that we members of the same body, each been given gift(s) to serve
one another and the Kingdom.  Let us not
forget who we ultimately serve – the Servant King who humbled Himself, for our
sakes!

God bless,

Mark

Welcome – 1 August 2021

The seasons continue; The darkest day is gone and the sun rises a little earlier every dawn. This reminds us of God's inner thought in Genesis 8:22

Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from his youth. And never again will I destroy all living creatures as I have done,

As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
shall never cease.
For all the uncertainty in our world, every dawn is a reminder of God's certain providence. While we wait for our Lord to Return and Restore, While we persevere under injutice, turmoil and fear, pleading Him to banish every cause and effect of evil, Look daily at the rising Sun and remember His Providence.
Will He, who spared not His Only Son but gave Him up for us all, not richly provide us with all things, along with Him?! Rest in Him.
