Updates from Pastor Craig 18.05.2020

Hello everyone,

Lovely to see so many of you at Church online and on Social media yesterday. Again we had a number of visitors on with us, let us pray that those who don’t know Jesus would encounter the reality of His goodness and His love.

Tash & I continue to pray for you all and miss seeing you. We look forward to the day when we can gather together again. Until then we pray you are safe, healthy, and enjoying the presence of God as he is close to you.

Share the Good News

I am convinced we are in unprecedented times for the gospel in the UK. There is an openness and desire for greater hope like we have never seen before. We have also received and heard many words of revival following this dark season. Can I again ask you to help us share the gospel by:

  1. Liking and sharing our online content
  2. Inviting people to Church online
  3. Sharing your own story in person and online through Social media

We may not all be evangelists but we are all witnesses called to freely give all we have received and bare witness to the goodness of God in our lives.

Glorious Grace:

Do you ever Marvel at the kindness of God? Are you ever overwhelmed by the glory of His grace? This morning I am musing on the goodness of God and the faithfulness of God. He is always with us, an ever present help in times of trouble. He is immutable, He never changes; Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever. 1 John tells us that God is love and the psalms tell us God is good. Our God is faithfully, constantly, unchangingly loving and good!

However what has left me marvelling at His glorious grace this morning is His reward. Our God is always loving us, always good to us; the ever present unchanging help in our lives. The all powerful creator of the heavens and the earth is powerfully acting on our behalf and just when you think He can’t do anymore He has the audacity to reward us for serving Him!

Thank you Father for your audacious love and your outpouring of glorious grace!

Matthew 25:20-21 New International Version (NIV)

The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.’ “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

Love & blessings

Craig
