God is in our midst and has been making his presence felt in great ways! Last Thursday we had an amazing time in our Believers’ Meeting as God ministered to us through a visiting Pastor, Fitzroy Kerr and through times of worship.  Then last Sunday God further ministered powerfully to us through our brother Junior Tucker who spoke to us on Worship At His Feet. Please read reflections on his message below.  In both Sunday services we had the delight of standing with families as they dedicated their babies to the Lord. In the first service we rejoiced together as we baptized six persons as planned.  However by the end of the second service, thirteen more persons decided to get baptized which was met with great celebration!! Praise to God who breaks our chains and delivers us from sin, Satan and the evil world system!

 

 

 

Reflections

Last Sunday our brother Junior Tucker preached from John 12:1-8 on Worship At His Feet. In this passage, Jesus visited Bethany and stayed at the home of his friends Lazarus, Martha and Mary.  There was a crowd in the house which included his disciples and there was a dinner being given in Jesus’ honour.  Martha served while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him.  Mary took a pint of pure nard and poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair and the house was filled with the fragrance of the expensive nard.

The healthiest Church is the one that knows how to worship.  The Church that is able to pour out worship is powerful and able to take new land.  However, even in the presence of the Lord you can worship and not get it right.  Let us look at four persons worshiping in Jesus’ presence.  1) Mary brought worship at his feet .  2) The second worshiper is Judas.   Judas was always referred to as the one who betrayed Jesus as we are not allowed to forget this evil that Judas did.  Indeed in our time no one names their child Judas.  John, the author of this gospel, knew that Judas was a thief.  Judas objected to Mary pouring out the expensive perfume in this manner because as he said, the perfume should have been sold and the money used to help the poor.  But John went on to say that Judas really said this because as the keeper of the money bag he would often steal from the bag.
