Our young adult ministry, ‘TENT’ did a great job leading both our services last Sunday.  All the beautiful creativity from the art forms used in worship helped to reinforce the message brought by our brother David Royes on Following Jesus.  Take a look at the Reflections of his insightful message below.

 

Our youth and children had their final time together for the year this weekend.  We had the Teens Award Christmas Dinner on Saturday and the Sunday School children had a blast at their Christmas Party on Sunday.  Listen out for the resumption dates in January for our youth and children programs.

 
 

Reflections

Last Sunday our brother David Royes preached on Following Jesus from John 6:59-71. Christmas is one of the most exciting times in Jamaica with all the Christmas festivity.  However in their ‘Christmas’ experience recorded in our text, Jesus had come and was speaking to the people who were not feeling good or experiencing any of the Christmas frills.  This passage is one of the most sobering moments recorded in Scripture.  The people had questions about Jesus (v. 60). They were grumbling, disbelieving, there was turning away and betrayal.  This message is about persons who come to Jesus on the outside but who walk away from him on the inside.  They come close to him but in the end they don’t want him.  Why do some people see Jesus as the very oxygen they need, while others come to even a splendid Christmas service but leave without him.

Finally

Just as we were ending the 1st service, the fire alarm went off. It was sudden and unexpected.  We all froze and then took to the exits.  It turned out to be a false alarm but what if the sudden unexpected sound was that of the last trumpet instead!!  Jesus came once as a baby, he is coming back as judge and King. Will you be ready?

Let’s follow Jesus now.

In His love,
Sharon
