We welcomed two new people with us tonight. John led us in some singing before Janice gave her testimony to salvation. Rae spoke from John 19:1,2. 'A crown of thorns was put on Jesus head.' and also from James 1:2,12. 'After enduring testing they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.' If we trust Jesus Christ, allow ourselves to be identified with his suffering and endure the testing, we will receive the crown of life. After a lovely worship time of praise and singing we had a chat to our new friends over a wee cup of tea and biscuits. Both enjoyed the evening very much and are looking to come back on a regular basis.
We had a good meeting this week. Mark began our night with singing before Diana led us in a bible study on 5 of the prophecies in the Old Testament that speak of the birth, life and authority of Christ. There are 365 messianic prophecies altogether in the Old Testament. We followed with a short time of prayer and worship which was richly blessed by His presence.
