1st Thursday

As the Israelites stood before the River Jordan which was in flood (an impossible barrier to cross on foot), Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you." (Joshua 3v5). The bible goes on to record that as they moved in faith, the water from upstream stopped flowing (v16).

As a church we also have obstacles to cross in order to come into all that God has for us. Tomorrow we start a season of prayer/fasting on the first Thursday of each month, to help us humble/consecrate ourselves for Jesus.

If you haven't fasted before, can I gently say that most people can skip a meal in order to create time to pray. That said, please be sensible and don't feel guilty if you choose not to.

We shall be gathering at the church offices 8-10pm to worship Jesus and call on His name. Hope to see you there!
