Bulletin I 7th October 2018

7 October, 2018

PREACHER'S PEN | Pastor Jeff Spencer

What does God have to say to me about fulfillment?

“My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.” - Jeremiah 2:13

“Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” - John 4:13-14

Ask yourself, “which well are you drinking from?”

PREACHER'S PEN | Pastor Andrew Kelly

“I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.” - John 17:23

Jesus’ prayer for you and me is that we would know the same oneness He has with the Father, and through this, the world would know that Christ is truly the Saviour, the one who gives new life.

JESUS PRAYS ABOUT HIS OWN LIFE AND MINISTRY

John 17:1-5

1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, 2 since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. 3 And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. 4 I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. 5 And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.

THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

John 16:5-15

For many years, I thought it was my duty; my responsibility, to roll up my sleeves, grit my teeth and get out there and DO God's work. But, it was staring me in the face and I didn't see it. It's God's work, not mine. 

My duty; my responsibility, is to be "available" to be used by Him, and then, when He needs me, I am to be "instantly obedient."

GOD AT WORK IN THE MAF COMMUNITY

Praise God for the ten medevac flights MAF were able to do in the last two weeks. Their youngest patient was a two-day-old baby boy! Praise God for the growth of the church in Timor-Leste. This week, MAF flew the adult children of missionaries who worked here in 1963, when it is believed that there were only four Protestant believers in the whole country. Today there are thousands! Continue to pray for wisdom, creativity and energy for Jason and Kim Job as they serve in Timor-Leste, and as they parent Sam and seek to listen to the Lord’s direction each day.
