Welcome to Virtual Church
Kenton Baptist Church
Sunday 19th July
Psalm 68 v 20 says 'Our God is a God who saves...' God wants the best for us - it's not in His heart to harm us. The Bible tells us that He 'wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all people.' (1 Timothy 2 v 4-5)
This is our God - the One who saves and who loves us unconditionally, the One to whom we can come just as we are to find grace, mercy, forgiveness and freedom. Today we come to praise and worship the One who willingly gave His life and paid the price for our wrongdoing - Jesus Christ. Father, thankyou for sending your Son - let Your glory fall as we declare Your praises.
led by Patrick.
Let us also pray for those we know of personally who are in need at this time.
Our Bible Reading is taken from 2 Kings 6 v 1 - 6
and is read by Sheila.
Thankyou Father, that we can approach Your throne with confidence and come right into Your presence because the precious Blood of Jesus has the power to cleanse us from all unrighteousness when we trust in Him.
Thankyou, Lord, that You have paid our debt in full - sin and death no longer have a hold on us - we are free! We come to foot of the cross again to worship You with all our hearts and give You all the praise and all the glory. Jesus - Saviour, Messiah, Redeemer, King of Kings -Thankyou for Your amazing love that brings us to our knees in gratitude.
Prayer: Thankyou, Lord, that Your Word is truth that brings life to us. Please breathe on us now by Your Holy Spirit so that we hear and receive all You have to say to us. Come and work in our hearts as we listen. Amen.
Pastor Steve's Message.
2 Kings 6 v 1 - 6
Like many Christians we long to reopen our premises and get back to holding regular worship services. However, at present our services will remain online.
We are looking at active and sensible ways to re-open when we are confident that all stringent precautions can and have been taken to keep KBC a Covid-19 safe place for us all to worship together.
For now let us continue to encourage one another, even as we are doing (1 Thessalonians 5:11) and look forward to reopening our services soon.
