As a church, we recognise that throughout biblical history that children of believers are to be recognised as part of the people of God and therefore the sign of the covenant (baptism) is to be given not just to believers but also to children of believers.
‘Do all the good you can by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.’ (John Wesley)
As you fight your sin, you may feel unsure that God is your keeper. And as you go through ordinary life you will experience hard times spiritually, but when our trust is in God, he promises you that he is your keeper, he is your help and he always will be.
If we believe in Jesus Christ as our saviour who took the punishment for our wrongdoing and sin, we know, we can be certain that we will be saved from perishing from judgement. And so if you’re here and you aren’t a believer in the Lord Jesus, those are your options lying before you. Ignore Jesus, reject Jesus and you will experience eternal judgement for your sins. Accept Jesus, embrace Jesus and you will be saved.
Whether it’s ourselves and our own identity that we give pride of place; our family, our possessions or our experiences. We turn to these things all the time, inside and outside of the church, Christian or non-Christian. But, when these things take the place of God, they will ultimately fail us. But God will never fail us.
Friends, if your faith is in Jesus, he has saved you from the penalty of sin, he is saving you from the power of sin, and one day, praise to his name, he will save you from the presence of sin!
It is written, not just that Jesus must suffer, die, and rise, but that He may be proclaimed to the whole world! Who is there in your life who does not know Jesus? Go and tell this good news of peace to many that he may be known, enjoyed and praised Kirkcaldy and beyond.
What a great salvation was achieved for us on the cross by Jesus. He opened the way for us to know God and we are called to respond by faith and to carefully keep his commands in faithful love to him.
Jesus, an innocent man, was condemned to a cruel death, and a murdering rebel was released.
We’re forgiven because he was condemned.
We’re accepted because he was rejected.
And we live forever because he died for our sins.
