Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
This past weekend I was blessed to be able to spend it in Auckland with my brother and his family. They have 2 girls aged 8 & 9 who were desperate to take me to Rainbows End as they had never been there. For those of you who don’t know, this is an amusement park with 5 ‘Extreme’ rides and other more gentler ones! The second ride we went on was called ‘The Stratosphere’. About 30 people sit in seats in a large circle and on go it starts to circle and swing from side to side like a pendulum, getting higher and higher each time. Eventually it gets to the top where it stops for a few seconds and one is suspended completely upside down looking at the skies above with the only thing between life and death being the harness you are putting your complete trust in!
Somewhere in the midst of the air I was reminded that the only thing between life and death for each of us is our belief and confession of Jesus as Lord of our life. He is the ‘harness’ that saves us from hell and promises us an eternity in Heaven. He is the only person we can trust 100% of the time and who will never let us down. If you haven’t already or you are walking a life not fully given to Jesus, consider committing your life to Him today.
With love & blessings,
