Welcome to our first online service!
We have chosen a few songs and hymns for this morning’s service for you to follow along with (copyright prevents us from broadcasting our own songs).
The Sunday morning service below includes an introductory message from Rog, a message to the children from Jared, the Bible reading from John 14:15-31 by Murray and the sermon following that passage by Don, entitled “Finding True Intimacy”.
If you are having difficulty with the videos below you can try this link to get the main part of the service and the sermon.
As we begin consider these words from Psalm 106:
“Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Let all the people say, Amen! Praise the Lord!”psalm 106:48
In Psalm 106 the psalmist looks back at the many times God’s people in the Old Testament sinned against the Lord and how he judged them, and yet, at the end of the psalm v.44 says:
God took note of their distress when he heard their cry, for their sake he remembered his great covenant and out of his great love he relented.psalm 106:44
And then the psalmist says in v.47:
Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from the nations that we may give thanks to your holy name, and glory in your praisepsalm 106:47
With that in mind, you may want to spend a few moments in prayer reflecting on the God who rescues us and gathers us to Himself, and then sing again.
Before we hear from God’s Word, spend a moment in prayer for our land, the church and those in need that are known to you. After this have your Bibles ready at John 14.
Jude 24 closes with these wonderful words:
To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy – to the only God our Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.Jude 24-25
