This Weeks Reflections

  |   By  |  0 Comments

Last Sunday was great!

Dave Matthews spoke magnificently on our need for a PAT – To Proclaim Jesus, Admonish one another and Teach one another, so we get to be more like Jesus. There’s no mp3 this week, but I will put up the powerpoint on the website in a moment!

Do put it into practice – be open to proclaim Jesus and to be admonished and to admonish when necessary -we all want to be more like Jesus! The way he explained how to do it well was superb, so do take a look at the powepoint to refresh your memory.

Life is full of teaching moments, so don’t forget to use them too – yesterday we ended up discussing what is a Christian at the tea table, out of a comment one of the kids mad about a naughty kid at school!

Life is about being obedient to the Holy Spirit when He whispers. Go for it!

At the Tuesday marketplace was a lot of fun – well done Alison for organising it. We got to bless a lot of people, share God’s love, the Gospel and to pray for healing. It was one of those stepping out of the boat times. Out of my comfort zone and yet as you step out, God blesses what you are doing. We may well see some visitors on Sunday because of it.

This Sunday

The Christmas Carol service is one of the biggest evangelistic opportunities of the year. People say  “yes” far more often to an invite to a Christmas carol service. A free lunch helps too. It is a bring and share – but most of those we invited on the streets will be sharing more than they will be bringing. Please let’s make their second encounter with Christianity a great one! Bring lots of food! A way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and people’s eternal destiny could hang in the balance of our hospitality this Sunday. So please bring lots of food and let the guests go first (I really don’t want to have to do FHB – family hold back!!!)

I do pray that these next couple of weeks will be full of blessing for you as you spend time with your families and friends.
