A good number of us gathered for our Coatbridge meeting this week. It was lovely to have some newer folks who haven't managed along for a while. We began with a time of singing led by Diana. This was followed by a very good testimony to Salvation and Baptism in the Holy Spirit from Rae. It was very encouraging to hear of her journey and the ways God drew her in until she reached the point of Salvation.
Diana then spoke on the theme of spiritual peaks and troughs. She related various parts from the life of Christ and the reactions of His disciples. She spoke of how there were times the disciples reacted with amazement at what Jesus did, and other times they seemed so busy with their work that they missed the wonder of what was happening. She encouraged us to press through times of weariness and to find His presence deeply again. We then had a time of worship together, during which Christ drew very close to us.
