Join us on Sunday in-person or on our livestream as we look at a church in motion
This Sunday at 11am we continue our fall series: “A church in motion”: the book of Acts. Patrick will be looking at chapter 9 which is pretty key. Paul’s conversion is a critical event for the New Testament church. But does it have any relevance for today? We’ll see on Sunday!
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.
Last call to purchase Gord Martin’s new book
I mentioned a few weeks back about our making Gord Martin’s book available. This is the last chance to pick one up.
Most of you know Gord Martin as a friend of GBC who spoke recently here in August. He has recently written a book we’d like to make available to purchase for those who are interested
Doing It Afraid’ is my life story – so far! It is full of accounts of how God helped me do things I would naturally have been afraid to do. It is my conviction that many of us would trust and obey God, if we were not afraid. I believe this is especially true of church leaders. I have written this book to encourage you to dare, to risk – Doing it Afraid. Gord Martin
You can purchase a copy for $20 from me if interested.
Thought for the day: Closing thoughts on fruit
The last couple of weeks we’ve been looking at the fruit of the Spirit, how to get it and what it looks like. Let’s look at the text, in full, one last time. Paul writes in Galatians 5: “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”
We often will read (or maybe even memorize) the components of the fruit but we don’t often look at the impact of it which we see in the verses that follow. I could write probably a bunch of blogs on this but instead I’m going to encourage you to read it reflectively and talk to God about how this applies to your life. May we all seek to live in this manner and let our lights shine!
In His grip,
