Join us on Sunday in-person or on our livestream as we begin our new series “Servant in motion”
This Sunday at 11am I’ll be starting our new winter series: “Servant in Motion”: the book of Mark. We’ll be looking at the shortest of the four gospels leading up to Easter. A key theme is Jesus as servant so that will direct our study as we look to see what it means to be a ‘servant in motion’.
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.
I’ve been looking at the issue of hope the past couple of weeks and I’ve appreciated the positive comments from many of you. I can see from it we all are looking for the same thing- answers that will give us 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 the pandemic, which I find hard to believe is nearly two years old, I had a lot more confidence that I had it figured out. Now though, 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 my concluding thought on this subject: no matter what the year ahead has in store, 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 this year and that gives me a lot of hope. I ‘hope’ it does for you too!
In His grip,
