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.

More From 'Bulletin'

Bulletin l 14 April 2019

EASTER REFLECTION

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Romans 5:8-11

Jesus died on the cross for you. He wore a crown of thorns and was nailed to a tree because He loves you...and He wants to have a personal relationship with you today.

Bulletin I 31st March 2019

PREACHER'S PEN | PASTOR ANDREW KELLY

ASSURANCE OF SALVATION

“For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. 16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:14-17

New life in Christ is one of complete transformation; of death to sin and self, to life under the lordship of Christ. Our lives are no longer lived for ourselves, but for the one who died for us and was raised again.
