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 the Jerusalem Council in Acts 15. This event had a critical impact on how we worship today. We’ll find out more about this 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.
Thought for the day: God’s power will protect us.
We all need hope. When you lose hope its pretty hard to carry on. We’ve seen this a lot during Covid. I had a vivid reminder of this when visiting the Reversing Falls in Saint John. There were all these new suicide prevention stickers placed on the bridge overlooking them. It was a stark reminder of the importance of hope.
People often ask me, especially in the times we’re in, what I think is going to happen in the days ahead. At the beginning of Covid I had a lot more confidence that I had it figured out. But now, I have no clue. That can lead to a lot of discouragement and distraction. It can also lead to a loss of hope. Here’s now how I approach this: no matter what lies ahead, you can always count on God to help. How do I know? Peter writes in his first letter to the early church: “Through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see” Here’s the key: By HIS power and through OUR faith, we can always have hope since God is not only working out his purposes and plans but he’s also protecting us as we go through all of this.
Sometimes we all feel helpless and powerless, it even happens to pastors. But when God is in your life, he has mighty power to help you. His power is bigger than anything you will face and that gives me a lot of hope. I ‘hope’ it does for you too!
In His grip,
