Join us on Sunday
Join us on our livestream on Sunday as I begin our new series for the winter called “I AM: Jesus in his own words”. I’ll be looking at some of the ways Jesus described himself in the Gospel of John. These reveal some amazing things that I think will be a great encouragement for us in these dark days.
As a reminder, our services are now livestreamed only in respect to the province’s current lockdown order. Please tune in either on Facebook Live or through our website
www.guelphbiblechapel.ca or now on our YouTube channel!
I hope to ‘see’ you on Sunday!
GBC YouTube Channel
As I mentioned on Tuesday, we have our own YouTube channel now.
We continue to look for ways to kept you connected and also use media to share the gospel so this was a natural next step.
We will be livestreaming our services on this channel as well as Facebook plus also using this for our videos like those from Oasis Camp. There’s already a lot of content there so why not take a look?
Better yet, why not subscribe to the channel and share with your friends.

Thought for the day: Remember
As I mentioned on Tuesday, I’m going to be looking at some ways to put more ‘resolution’ into our journey in 2021. Resolution only means to resolve, or be purposeful about what you do. Here is the first ‘tip’ or thought on how to do that.
We read in Ecclesiastes: “Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near of which you will say, ‘I have no pleasure in them’” In January, the year is young and the opportunities seem fresh. So many productivity gurus preach a gospel of self-empowerment, but as gospel people, we know the fragility of human life. We know every breath is a miracle, a gift given to us by God, our Creator. Let’s remember to live life to its fullest then.
I love the words of the old hymn ‘Great is Thy Faithfulness’:
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!
Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.
In a broken and fallen world, creation itself reminds of God’s great faithfulness. Another great thing to remember! Every new season is a testimony, it’s a signpost, to grace. So the proper response to the past year, whether good or bad, is not “I made it through” or “Look what I achieved.” It is instead “thank you, Lord.” Remember that and your whole outlook on many things will change!
In His grip,
