Weekly Update – 13/05/2020

Dear Church Family,

The VE day celebrations were muted but encouraging in the 8th week of lockdown, that one day hopefully soon, we’ll win the battle with Covid-19.

We as Christians are the ultimate optimists because we can look forward to being part of a world free of viruses and war.

We’re part of the Royal family that lasts!

In our recent Sunday talks from Luke 12 I’ve been very struck by Luke 12v32:

“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.”

Luke 12:32 (NIV)

We’re the ‘little flock’ in Lk 12:32 – we’re weak and full of failures and foolishness, vulnerable in a hostile world of deadly viruses, yet, amazingly we’ve been given a place in the eternal kingdom of God.

Jesus is on His way to Jerusalem and death and resurrection. He is no longer going to be with his disciples in person. But they are going to continue the work of building His Kingdom. And He promises to be with them as they go.

What does that look like?

  • Having a verse or two in mind to talk about when we talk to another disciple and praying with them at the end of the conversation.
  • Talking about something from the Sunday service with neighbours & family (eg Lisa Oakley’s testimony about what it means for a Christian to fear God.)

We live in a time of opportunity; opportunity to serve others and point to our Lord Jesus Christ, and His everlasting Kingdom. Let’s take the opportunity

Your brother in Christ,
