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.
We can’t be saved by keeping the Old Testament law as some people still believe to this day. As Nic told us, the law serves as a guide to point out our need to be forgiven. Christ fulfilled the obligations of the law for us. He alone can save us and make us right with God. We must never add to or change this truth. We are saved by faith, not by the good we do. Jesus alone forgives us and brings us into a relationship with God.
We are free in Christ and yet freedom is a privilege. We are not free to disobey Christ or practice immorality, but we are free to serve Jesus. Let us use our freedom to love and to serve, not to make wrong choices.
When the Holy Spirit leads us, He produces His fruit in us. Just as we are saved by faith, not works, we also grow by faith. By believing, we can have the Holy Spirit within us, helping us live for Christ. We obey Christ by following the Holy Spirit’s leading. Through prayer, we can ask for the Holy Spirit’s leading at any and all the time. What a marvellous way to walk in each day, not trusting in our own strength, might or power but in the Spirit of God!
With love & blessings,
