Do you sometimes think “I am a Christian but I don’t think I have any joy”? Your life experience is robbing you of the joy that is inherently in you. Don’t let that happen! Joy is an outward expression of an inward experience. We must make intentional times for expressing Thanks to God for the source of joy! Sunday, 7th February Allan concludes our SHAPE series.
Who do you think you are? Theme for Sunday 24th January 2021:
Abraham doubted he would be a father. Moses had anger issues, and low self-esteem. God does not need a pre-perfect personality to serve in the kingdom. There are countless examples of people with just as many personal issues that have been used mightily by God. There is no “right stuff” that makes a great follower of Jesus. Everyone who deliberately seeks a relationship with Jesus is exactly the type of person Jesus empowers to achieve great and marvelous things…
How are you using your natural abilities, and learned skills to grow the church and build the kingdom of heaven? Be assured you have skills, research reveals that the average person has between 500 and 700 different skills and abilities! Therefore what I am able to do, God wants me to do!
We’ve all heard various versions of the saying “For where your treasure is, your heart will be also”. Serving from the heart (the centre of life) is the only service God requires. Therefore we should be wholehearted in our faith and service we offer to the King!
On Sunday the 3rd January, Rev’ Allan started a new series with us:
It is a revision and settling of what we might have learned from our ‘Purpose Driven’ series; that we ran from August to November this year…
This series drives home the point that everyone is unique in purpose and relationships, we waste time and life trying to be like someone else. For instance and eagle and a duck at first glance have the same body parts and yet are remarkably different in purpose and hence ability.
In two sentences: 1/ You were made to be you. 2/ God has given you unique abilities, and he wants you to use them for what He intended for you to use them.
