The Coming Of The Lord

I had a really great Christmas; lots of rest, time to reflect about the year 2017 and also to regain strength from all the travelling that I did last year.

It’s a new year and I am sure in a short while we’ll be back to the treadmill of life; work, school, the gym, rushing to catch the train or the bus, making ends meet. The list goes on.

However, it’s also a good time to remind ourselves that our Lord Jesus Christ could come back at this very second. Some of the questions one might ask are: When is he coming back? What is he coming back to do? How will he come back? What are the signs of his coming? These are some of the things that we’ll be looking into in our teaching series this month at CFT Bristol Church. We’ll also be looking at what Jesus said to the seven churches in the book of Revelations, chapters 1 to 3.

Have a great month ahead.

Happy New Year

I hope you were able to get some rest during the Christmas period last December. I am sure you are all fired up and ready to go for the year 2018. You probably have your list of “New Year Resolutions”. This is that time of the month that we all want to hopefully “start on a clean slate”, go to the gym, eat healthier and so on.

However, experience has taught me that most of us run out of steam by February. The more determined ones hold out till March, then it is back to life “as usual”.

The good news is that God has promised us as a church that this is the “Year of divine favour”. I checked an online dictionary to get a proper definition of the word, favour. It defines favour as “approval, support, or liking for someone or something”. This means that we have God’s approval and support through the gift of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thus, we can count on and trust God to help us through the year supernaturally in all our endeavours, as we have faith in Him for his “divine favour”.

I am really excited about the year 2018 because I know that God has a good plan for each and every single one of us, as he states in Jeremiah 29:11. He is also able to work out everything for our good, even if we are currently in a place of regret and discomfort as he states in Romans 8:28. This year, let’s determine to focus on knowing God, sharing the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ and care for one another in this great year, 2018.

Have a great month ahead.
