The best news in the world

I wanted to take a moment to thank all those who participated in 24 hours of prayer in the week just gone, and particularly to Jon Flood who co-ordinated it. It was such a delight to see so many people coming and going through all hours, to set aside time to pray. God is in control of all things, and it was such a privilege to set aside time and pray to such a powerful God. This in itself is a striking reminder that we are not in control, but that he is.

As we approach Easter, let’s remember that the most powerful message in the world is the death and resurrection of Jesus. Through him we have forgiveness, and we have life, and we have magnificent promises for the future. Ordinary People like us have and can Encounter the Extraordinary God.

And, we desire for more Ordinary People to Encounter the Extraordinary God. We live in one of the most multicultural parts of Australia, in which the nations have come to us, and we have a wonderful opportunity. Easter is normally a slower part of the year. Let’s pray that our community would join us as we remember and celebrate the coming of Jesus our King.  

Have you ever been the bearer of good news? It is a great joy. In Jesus death and resurrection, we have the greatest news possible – life and forgiveness. Thank you to all those who have already taken a bundle of flyers to deliver, and thanks to those who already have. There are now just a few bundles left – please take one and help us invite all in our area to remember and celebrate Easter.

May we, as a church, continue to pray to the God who is in control of all things, to transform the lives of many in our neighbourhood.
