Today Pastor Dilan brought us the message “Godly Truths in a Godless Text” from 1 Samuel 27, continuing our sermon series “Living under the real King” from the Old Testament book 1 Samuel.

Note: Communion Later Today

Today we invite you to celebrate the Lord’s Supper. Now would be a good time to gather the elements for communion if you haven’t already. You’ll need some bread to represent Christ’s body that was broken for us and some juice to represent the blood shed to pay the penalty for our sins.

Pastor’s Probe

Perfect Time

Sadly, due to COVID restrictions the church decided to postpone the weekend away for this year. My cousin had to postpone their wedding by 4 months. Faustine and I personally have decided it is not worth the trouble planning a trip to Sri Lanka to visit our parents. As we reluctantly delay and reschedule or put our lives on hold, we hope and wait for everything to be perfect and safe – soon.  
 
The Bible, tells us the story of God waiting for the right time to send his son Jesus to our world. Paul writes “When the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law” (Galatians 4:4). But he further writes that the right time was not when we were ready, perfect and sinless – “For at just the right time, while we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 5:6). 
 
Someone shared this week of how he met Jesus back in 2003 but it took another 12 years for him to become a Christian (have a relationship Jesus) – when his life was falling apart.  
 
Are times messy and not perfect? Perhaps this is the perfect time for God to do his perfect work.
