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.
In the change of seasons, springtime brings longer days and shorter nights. So, in a sense, as we move from winter into spring and summer, we leave behind days of darkness as each day brings more light. The apostle Paul often uses the image of light and dark to talk about our spiritual condition. The point here is that we are not only delivered out of something but are also brought into something as well.
As followers of Jesus, we are transferred into the Kingdom of light. We “share in the inheritance of His holy people in the Kingdom of light.” Light often symbolises glory, truth, holiness, and life. It has to do with the authority and sovereign rule of the King. Because of Christ’s work to save us from sin, we are no longer in the dominion of darkness. We are freed to live fully in the precious, grace-filled, compassionate, and loving rule of Christ.
As we go about each of our days let’s then share that light with others!
With love & blessings,
