Following Jonathan’s words earlier in the service, Rachel started by pointing out that the key command given by Jesus to his disciples at the end of Matthew’s gospel related not to travel, nor specifically to preaching the word, but to making disciples. There is therefore a close relationship between evangelism and discipleship which she began to explore. Listen to or download her talk here.
This year our church has agreed to focus specifically on outreach with the gospel message, and here Jonathan shared with the church what he believes to be a word from God confirming this decision. Listen to or download his words here.
Today Jonathan shared with us three psalms as a background to his talk. These were Psalm 26 (not included in this recording), Psalm 51 and Psalm 30 (which you can hear in this recording). As we look back over 2019 we cannot but be aware of many times when we have failed God. However, our present status with God depends not on our actions but on Him – what He has done, and how He regards us now. The prayer shown here was projected throughout Jonathan’s talk.
