Welcome to today’s email.
It is the 1st September today!! Autumn is my favourite time of year for a variety of reasons but mainly because of the beauty and drama displayed in nature as well as the fresh morning air. What about you? Do you have a favourite time of year…and why? Feel free to respond and maybe your comments can be put in some upcoming emails or the notice sheet (should you want them to).
Of course, we have certain expectations of each season, in terms of weather, nature, how it makes us feel and what implications it has for our lives. In Paul’s letter to Timothy he makes this statement: “be prepared in season and out of season” (2Tim 4:2). It doesn’t really matter if Paul is talking about the physical seasons or any spiritual season, his point is: be prepared. Be ready. What season are we in now, spiritually speaking? Is this a spiritual winter or a harvest time? Again, whichever it is: be prepared. I’ll simply leave that one there and maybe you can ask God yourselves what it means to be prepared. Feel free to respond.
Today’s message from the ministers is all about peace. I look at how the Old Testament idea of God’s peace moves into the New Testament through the Prince of Peace himself – Jesus, our Lord. And, have a quick look at some possible practical steps to help us have peace in these times. To see / listen to the talk please CLICK HERE
“The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,” says the Lord Almighty. “And in this place I will grant peace,” declares the Lord Almighty.’ Haggai 2:9
For we are fellow workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building. 1Cor 3:9
May the Lord grant you his precious peace this day,
