Welcome to our service today. It’s great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee. If this is your first time at BBC we especially welcome you.
This week I read in Romans 14:17 – ‘for the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.’. Sometimes in the midst of life’s circumstances it is hard to find peace and joy. But I believe that if these qualities are rooted deep in our heart then we will keep travelling the journey through difficult times. Peace and joy cannot be gained by ‘obtaining things’ or ‘doing things’ or ‘seeing things’. That kind of peace and joy only lasts for a while. Only by the infilling of the Holy Spirit can we have deep seated peace and joy that never leaves us despite what we are experiencing. This requires us to first ask God to be filled with His Spirit and then to daily be talking with Him to be lead, fed, encouraged and nurtured by His Spirit which He gave us when Jesus went to be with His Father in Heaven.
Let’s make that our daily prayer.
With love & blessings, Sandra
