Swallow is Connecting!  If you missed our Sports Link Up last Friday you missed good fun around some interesting table games, exciting domino competition, shooting hoops, Table Tennis and mini tennis.  No need to fear, we will be doing this again soon so stay tuned and listen out!! Click Here for pictures.

Swallow also connected again this past Sunday with one Connection Communion Sunday.  We had a rich time of worship led by the Worship Team and to keep on singing with us, see the Song of the Week below.  We enjoyed having our children and youth with us who blessed us (an shame some ah wi) by sharing scripture from memory. Before we broke bread together John McFarlane blessed us with a song and our brother Terence Forrester challenged us with the message Who is Going to Fill Their Shoes? from Matthew 26:20-30.  Read highlights of his sermon in the Reflections below.

 

SONG OF THE WEEK

We have introduced this 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!  The song this week is At the Cross by Hillsong

 

Reflections

Last Sunday our brother Terence Forrester preached from Matthew 26:20-30 on Who is Going to Fill Their Shoes?  Jesus instituted the communion feast before he died on the cross.  It was to remind us of the covenant that he made with us in his own blood which he promised through Jeremiah (Jeremiah 31:31-34). This promise was fulfilled in Matthew 26:20-30. He shed his blood to cleanse us from sin.  What is sin?  To him who knows what is right and doeth it not to him it is sin.  The only remedy for sin is the blood of Jesus.  Jesus’ mission to this world was to seek and to save those who are lost.

Jesus sent his disciples to spread this gospel and now who is going to fill their shoes?  Embedded in this question is the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).  As one preacher said, unfortunately the Great Commission has become the Great Omission.  Also embedded in this question is what Jesus said, “you shall be my witnesses”.  Finally, embedded in the question is the reality that we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works which he has prepared in advance for us to do (Eph. 2:10).
