As a church family we are very excited about the future, as we stand on the verge of a thrilling new chapter. Where do we begin? How do we go on? Where do we want to end up? We all come from different backgrounds, different countries, we are different ages. Some of us are single and some are married, some work and some don’t. We need nothing less than the biggest, best and most exciting vision of all, to rally around and move into the future together.
Is there anything or anyone big enough to draw us all together, and fill our whole horizon?
JESUS Himself is the biggest, best, and most exciting vision of all. Jesus is the eternal Son of God. The founder of the galaxies and master of the universe. His birth in Bethlehem changed sunset to sunrise in the ancient world and the whole course of human history. Followers of Jesus went out to turn the world upside down; pioneered great civilisations, architecture, music, poetry, art, justice and dignity as through JESUS people all across the world were swept up into the life of the Living God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit forever. JESUS is everything. He is the biggest, best and most exciting vision of all. He has stood the test of time. He unites us with Christians down history and across the globe, He alone is worth living for. He alone is worth dying for. He is the one solid rock in a shifting world.
No one who has ever really met JESUS has ever been the same.
Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
