PREACHER'S PEN

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 

God desires us to be a community who seek His face together because He longs to bless us with His presence and provide for our every need.

PREACHER'S PEN

with Jeff Spencer

But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning. [John 15:26-27]

What does the Holy Spirit testify about Chirst?

1)He is bound to be faithful to the purpose of the one who has sent him.

2)He is the Spirit of truth. No matter if it is uncomfortable or unpopular he cannot compromise or withhold the truth.

3)He comes fresh from the presence of a passionately burdened Father - who He knows intimately - desperate to redeem His creation)

How do you think the Holy Spirit could use the gifts he has given you to help fulfil the mission he is sent on? When do find it hardest to maintain the truth in a hostile world?

Bulletin l 7th July

PREACHER'S PEN

with Andrew Kelly

Fellowship is essential for growth to maturity.

Ephesians 4:15-16

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

Spiritual growth does not happen in isolation.

Jesus’ plan for our individual growth is that we would minister to One another and see His whole body built up in love through serving one another.
