Hymn No. 3 – Standing on the Promises

The Sermon was given by Mike Barlow on the subject of Forgiveness. Comments started with our society and hate and this is published nationally and internationally. We need peace and unity and also in our church. Matthew 6:12-15 is an Instruction to us.  Matthew 18 and 6:25 tell us to have Patience and speak from the heart. A gift is to forgive as Christ forgives us, Mat 5.17; Pro 11.17 Psalm 103:8-12 tells of Gods great power.  We need to have compassion for all and have the mind of God, whose love is great. We need to forgive all and Jesus set the example–our relationships are vital. Read 1st Cor 5-1 & 2nd Cor 2:1-9 WE MUST FORVICE, being the main point here.
Mike also read Eph 2:2 which says to have kindness. then we can look forward to the future in Gods name. We also looked at Eph 4:30-32 and Psalm 32:1 which says to bless others.  We must remove the guilt, encourage others and all be encouraged by God as he forgives us. Forgiveness is priceless! Salvation is great.

 

The Final Hymn was The Church is one foundation, after which the Closing Prayer was given by Phillip Halford.

Fellowship continued over Refreshments–cake and bread for all in the Church hall.
