Reflection and Anticipation
Isaiah 60:1-5 NKJV
Welcome to Nambucca Baptist Church for our first service for 2023. Today will be a day of worship and holy communion and a time of reflecting on the past year but always looking forwards to the year to come with expectation that the Lord will do great things among us and our community.
Our text for this morning comes from Isaiah 60:1-5, the famous arise, shine for your light has come passage. Where the prophet talks about deep darkness covering the people but the scripture goes on to say, But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light,. The message today talks about how this can happen in our ordinary and everyday lives. Moments when the glory of the Lord breaks into our circumstances and we see a breakthrough. You will need to watch the video to hear the rest of the message.
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 give in various ways so that we can continue with the work of the Lord here in our church and beyond our walls.
