John 14: 1-7
Welcome to Nambucca Baptist Church this Sunday 9th August 2020. It is a beautiful sunny day with a cool breeze, a perfect winter day. Today have a great service for you. some fine worship songs, our welcome to the church from Meryl who also leads us in prayer a little later. Fay reads for us and I preach a message on the sixth of the I AM statements by Jesus from the gospel of John. This week it is I AM the way, the truth, and the life from John 14: 1-7.
Since many of us became Christians we have a sense that we don’t belong. Our perspective has changed as we draw ever closer to Jesus and we have an inner longing to find our way home. The good news is that Jesus says that you don’t have to look any further because He is the way to our heavenly home that He is preparing for us. There is a lot more in the message so please join us as we worship Him together today.
This is where we would normally take up a collection but as you can see we can’t pass an offering bag around online. We have, however, provided a secure online giving facility for you. You can either use the Tithe.ly app on your smartphone or just click on the green button on the screen. We have been blessed by the way so many of you have managed to continue to give in various ways so that we can continue with the work of the Lord here in our church and beyond our walls.
As always after the service, I invite everyone down to the manse for a cuppa and a tasty snack. Whilst you are not able to visit our kitchen, I still have a little something for you. Our YouTube friends Sergio and Rhoda have been trying to locate the location of Bethsaida somewhere on the northern shore of Galilee. This is another one of their wonderful videos of the area and I trust that you will enjoy it.
