Today’s message

Last week we began a new sermon series called Prayer: from Duty to Delight. We explored the reason we pray. Today Pastor Dilan explored the question ‘to whom do we pray?’ Talking to your Father – Matthew 6:5-15

Welcome

It’s great to have you join with us today. We trust that the Lord will minister to you as you worship Him today.

We meet in person each Sunday at 10am and we endeavour to get the online version available by 3pm the same day. If you are in Sydney Australia we would love for you to join with us in person if you are comfortable in doing that at this time.
We meet at 23 Conder St Burwood NSW.

Pastor’s Probe

Nothing is wasted

Have you ever wondered what God is doing while you are looking in the wrong place for something you lost and needed very badly? He knows exactly where it is, and yet he is letting you look in the wrong place/s.

Recently I was searching for a document to finalize an application form. I was pretty sure where I kept it but as it usually happens, I couldn’t find it there. Which led me to search other places. In the process, I found two orange envelops, one for Faustine and another for me. These were from a church weekend away 8 years ago. The speaker invited us to write a prayer for whoever we like and drop it in an envelope marked in that person’s name. Needless to say, we were encouraged to read three prayer cards by three different people, praying for almost the same thing.

In Romans 8:28 Paul says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” It is a wonderful reminder even while we look for something in the wrong place, God is still at work, working out his purposes. He wastes nothing.
