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.
I’m sure most of you will have heard that the great evangelist and teacher Billy Graham passed away last week aged 99. Many thousands of people around the world made a decision to accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour at one of his many crusades.
Since his passing into glory I have read many of his quotes. For me the one that resounds most in my mind is when he said “My home is in Heaven. I’m just travelling through this world”. I love his perspective! Our time on earth is but a drop in the ocean in the light of eternity. Yet we can be inclined to live it clothed in worry, stress, anxiety, fear, jealousy…. and in so many other ways, all the while missing out on the glorious plan that God has promised and set before us. I don’t mean to belittle anyone that suffers from the above – I can relate to some of those myself. But instead of being weighed down by them in this short time that we have in this world let us set our eyes on Jesus and make the most of the time we have left before we too pass onto glory where our eternal home is waiting for us. What a glorious day!
With love & blessings, Sandra
