Last week Thursday, at our Believers’ Meeting, we again experienced God’s power and grace as he once again ministered his healing and deliverance to us. This he did through Pastor Kerr’s ministry of the Word by the power of the Holy Spirit.  All praise to God who continues to work in our midst.

May is Child’s Month and our youth ministered powerfully at our services last Sunday. We had the joy of baptizing three teens in the second service after which our children enjoyed a Children’s Treat.  Our preacher for the morning was our brother Paul Henry who spoke to us on Arise and Shine from Hebrews 12:1-3. Allow yourself to be inspired by the Reflections on his sermon below.

SONG OF THE WEEK
We have introduced this new feature in our Weekly Update, as God wants us to keep singing to him during the week and not only on Sundays.  So, let the worship continue! This week our song is You Are Holy by Michael W. Smith.

 

Reflections

Last Sunday, our brother Paul Henry preached from Hebrews 12:1-3 on Arise and Shine. We are called to arise and shine by acting justly, loving mercy and walking humbly with our God (Micah 6:8) in the presence of the darkness of corruption, injustice, cruelty, arrogance and pride that characterize this world system. As we do so, we are privileged to have a cloud of witnesses who are cheering us on to arise and shine as faithful ambassadors of Christ (Heb 12:1).

In so doing, our text calls us to do three specific things: 1) Fling Off Sin and Press On (v. 1) - sin inhibits our ability to shine through the reflection of God’s character in doing justice, having compassion or mercy and walking humbly in obedience to God’s commands. We are to fling off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles (v.1). God wants us to be engaged in a dynamic love relationship with him.  This will cause his light to shine in the darkness and expose our need to remove sin. To relate to God requires us removing sin from our own presence.
