Ps Taiyo Konda - Sunday - 4th July 2021
|Wouldn't it be nice if we could escape all the pain of life? If saying yes to Jesus meant that we never had to walk through the valley or the fire ever again? Unfortunately, that is not a promise that we can hold on to, for at some point there is still pain in the journey. But did you know that you don't need to walk around with your hurts forever? That it's actually God's will for us to be healed and free from our past hurts?|
He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
Just a few highlights from the morning:
1. Don't listen to the lies of the enemy that tell us God doesn't see, or know, or experience our pain! God is with us in our deepest moments of pain, and all we need to do is look at the Cross to know how true this is.
2. We will struggle to forgive others if we struggle to believe that we have been fully forgiven by God. God isn't waiting to get even with us. Our sins have been fully absolved on the cross and we have been fully released, fully forgiven and now we are fully loved by our Father God. This is the message that sets us free
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
The invitation is to trust God when He says that through Jesus we are able to walk in His freedom daily, even in the midst of the pain.
