Praise the Lord in the land of the living and look what the Lord has done. For Christians the Bible is our final authority as it is God opinion, advice, counsel, and direction for all matters concerning our life. Psalm 119:89 "Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven." 2 Timothy 3:16:17 "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." Where we can become confused is when our opinion contradicts God's word. The good news is God's word is forever settled and our opinion can change if our heart is open. We could be wrong about something today but we can learn, change our opinion, and move forward to line up with God's word. Psalm 119:105 "Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path." When you feel confused and darkness has closed in around you, open the Bible and allow it's words to light up your path.
This Sunday is Family Sunday so we start at 10:15 with breakfast. We ask people to bring some breakfast type food and now we are seeing more and more people on Family Sunday so could I ask you to bring a little more. I will be sharing a word, 'Who Is Your Neighbour.' Jesus said to love your neighbour. Does that mean only those you like? Is a stranger a neighbour? Are other Christians your only neighbours? Come Sunday morning to find out. Don't forget to invite a friend. On Family Sunday we also share in Communion and there will be no evening service.
Continue to pray for those in need. Looking forward to seeing you, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice.
