This Week's Message
Today we met together with the United Methodist Church across the road for a joint outside service under a tent in our side yard. It was an amazing service - lots of praise, good music and two God inspired messages from the two pastors. They spoke of unity - that while we may do things a bit differently, we are still brothers and sisters in Christ. Through our love of God, and His Son, Jesus Christ, who died that we might all live - that unites us in our purpose to share God's love.
Unfortunately, the service could not be recorded. So, here is a previous message from Pastor Joe. All will be "normal" next week. See you then!
I Peter 2:4-5 (NKJV)
Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 4:11-16 (NLT)
Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.
Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.
Praise the Risen Lord!
