Home Bible Text 2017
We have a home Bible text in 2018.
It is: 1 Peter 2:9
9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
In this changing land of Australia, we will feel like strangers and aliens and yet, remain God’s chosen strangers and aliens. Once we were nobody. Now, by his grace in Jesus and the by the Spirit’s power we are somebody – we are his people with the mission to declare God’s goodness so he gets all praise and all glory for loving this world by the giving of his Son, Jesus Christ.
OUR PRAYER IS: Lord, help us not to fear, but in our hearts set apart Christ as Lord.
Our 2016 home text was 2 Samuel 7:28
In response to the overwhelming promise of God to enable kingdom to last for ever under a new and better king, David prays;
Sovereign Lord, you are God! Your covenant is trustworthy, and you have promised these good things to your servant.
OUR PRAYER IS: Lord, let the good things you have promised be done.
