Last week was a sad one in our nation as we heard more heart-breaking accounts of the senseless slaughter of our people including our children.  Amidst all that pain God met with us in a special was as we shared in three days of fasting and prayer for our nation.  Jesus remains our only hope for Jamaica. Our brother Dr. Carlton Dennis preached a very relevant message on The Lord at the Centre from Micah 4 last Sunday.  Read about it in the Reflections below.

 

Let Us Worship Him! – Thursday April 23 @ 6pm
Come and join our Worship Team in a time of extended praise and worship under the theme, Let Us Worship Him!  this Thursday at 6pm at #5. It will be a special time of intimacy with God as we pour out our hearts to him.  Come and invite a friend.

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!  Click here to hear our song of the week, Complete by Parachute Band. Click Here

 

Reflections

Last Sunday our brother Dr. Carlton Dennis spoke to us from Micah 4 on The Lord at the Centre.  Many Christians agree that Jesus must be at the centre but do not live as if this is so.  Indeed Jesus is really an addendum to their lives instead of the centre of it.  This very thing is crippling the church in Jamaica.  Can Jesus ransack your life?  If Jesus is the centre then he should be able to do just that instead of us keeping things nice and neat and having everything pat. Jesus has the right to disrupt your life and point you in another direction.

If Jesus in the centre then certain things must happen: 1) Recognition of the significance of who God is. (v. 1) Zion is not really the highest mountain but figuratively it is the chief mountain because God is in the highest place.  When this is so, people will stream towards God.  In Acts, when Jesus was the centre, people were asking the question, “How can we be saved?”  “Many nations will come and say, ‘come, let us go up into the mountain of the Lord, to the temple of the God of Jacob’” (v. 2).  Jesus said, “When I be lifted up, I will draw all men to me”.

What or who dominates your life?  If you want to be a part of God’s solution for our families and nation you have to make Jesus and His desires the center of your world.  Spend time with Him this week in prayer asking Him to show you how to put your life in order so that He alone is ruler.

In His love,
