GOD SO LOVED….
This Is a fantastic season – the time of Advent, when we intentionally remember that God sent His Son to be our rescuer from our awful mess. I love the thought that …………….
“ ‘The Word became flesh’ (John 1:14); God became man; the divine Son became a Jew; the Almighty appeared on earth as a helpless human baby, unable to do more than lie and stare and wriggle and make noises, needing to be fed and changed and taught to talk like any other child. And there was no illusion or deception in this: the babyhood of the Son of God was a reality. THE MORE YOU THINK ABOUT IT, THE MORE STAGGERING IT GETS. Nothing in fiction is so fantastic as is this truth of the Incarnation.”
(J.I Packer – Knowing God)
We must never become casual or weary about it. Nor should we ever think we have heard it all before. Our response should always be “WOW!” We want to absolutely make the most of it this year in NBC so over the next few weeks our exciting Christmas programme will enable you to think and then act upon the truth that GOD SO LOVED…. That’s our theme for this year. In our Sunday services we will be reflecting on what that means for us as we study John 3 v16 in depth and then we will have a GOD SO LOVED weekend (15th December) when we will have opportunities to show God’s love in action in a number of different ways. Throughout the season too we will provide you with opportunities to spread this good news to friends and colleagues. Listen closely and read this blog in coming weeks for more detail. To help you also you will get some advent readings delivered daily to your phone via our app. The daily readings were such a blessing during our ONE THING season and will continue through advent.
Dont miss them.
Have a blessed advent season thinking about GOD SO LOVED…
