Service and facility Update
As we move forward as a society continuing to come out of the pandemic, I wanted to share the next step in our own progression. As of Sunday, most of the ropes will be down in the Main Auditorium to more fully open it up.
For those who are still cautious and would prefer to maintain some physical distance, we will be keeping the ropes up on the pews on the left side plus also keeping chairs out in the Side Auditorium for you to space out. We will also continue to block off the pews our cameras are in.
Let us continue to move forward in grace and unity as we have before, keeping our focus on Jesus and letting our lights shine.
Join us on Sunday in-person or on our livestream for a guest speaker from the Guelph Bible Conference Center
Sunday we take a break from our spring series “IN FOCUS”.
Our friends from the Guelph Bible Conference Center will be joining us and their speaker, Brian Gunning, will be bringing the message.
For those newer to the GBC family, this was a tradition that was paused due to Covid so we’re glad to have them back. So, look for lots of new faces and a message not related to our spring series.
Remember, you can join us as we gather in-person or you can connect through our website www.guelphbiblechapel.ca our YouTube channel as well as Facebook LIVE.
Thought for the Day: Character is built on consistent experience
I introduced to you Tuesday the idea of character, defined it and looked a bit at its importance. So now the natural question might be: how do we gauge character? A person’s character is the sum of his or her disposition, thoughts, intentions, desires, and actions. It’s good to remember that character is gauged by general tendencies, not on the basis of a few isolated actions. We must look at the whole life. For example, King David was a man of good character although he sinned on occasion (and had a few BIG ones). And although King Ahab may have acted nobly once (hint: see 1 Kings 22:35), he was still a man of overall bad character. Several people in the Bible are described as having noble character: Ruth, Nehemiah, and Job, for instance. These people’s lives were distinguished by persistent moral virtue. They stuck with it. That means they consistently sought to learn from God and follow him no matter the circumstance.
With this in mind, here’s our tip for the day:
You grow in Godly character through experience in the day-in and day-out, in the grind of life. When you allow this to happen an interesting thing happens: you can then experience the power of God in your life and know the real happiness which is more than just a religious concept. There is joy in living the fullness of character that comes through having the Holy Spirit in your life. As you grow in character you can build up your faith by praying as you experience the power of the Holy Spirit. This takes time though, and it takes consistent effort. When you do, you’ll experience the joy, power and transformation for yourself and the world around you of Godly character.
