What’s happening in Worship this week?

This week Rev Rob’s focus is God’s Chisel and he recalls that Michelangelo chiselled away at the stone, and his new creations emerged and even seemed to break free from what bound them in the formless block. So too, God chisels away at each of us on the inside and the outside, if we let him – to make a new creation emerge, to break free from the things (like sin) that hold us back from reaching our potential as God’s masterpieces. Why not join us this Sunday for Rev. Rob’s last online worship service as this Sunday marks the end of his Supply Ministry with Lismore?

This service comes to you from the beautiful Christ the Good Shepherd Church in downtown Bexhill. We meet some of the locals as we begin worship.

Links to this service will be online this Sunday on our YouTube Channel: Lismore Regional Mission: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5i7MqcrUPtwTU30ucYJBgQ?view_as=subscriber

What Role Do You Have in God’s Church?

This week we will spend some time in Sunday’s service thinking about the body of Christ, the church.
The church is made up of people, not buildings, and each part of the body has its place in the proper functioning of the whole body.
You might know the wonderful kids’ hymn entitled: ‘I am the Church’. It was written when I was still attending Sunday School as a child.
Let me remind you of its lyrics once more.

Verse:
The church is not a building; the church is not a steeple;
the church is not a resting place; the church is a people.

Refrain:
I am the church! You are the church! We are the church together!
All who follow Jesus, all around the world!
Yes, we’re the church together!

When Jesus says to Simon Peter, ‘You are the rock on which I will build the church’ (Matthew 16:18), he is emphasizing the human foundations of the
church – as the name Peter literally means rock (Petra as it is written in the New Testament).


So what role do you have in God’s church?
Perhaps you are like the stained glass windows because you bring the church the gift of creativity.
Perhaps you are like the kitchen space because you bring the gift of hospitality.
Perhaps you are like a brick because you gift a solid and strong faith.
Perhaps you are a light fixture because you bring the gift of light and life.
Perhaps you are the offering plate because of your gift of generosity, or perhaps you are the doors because of your invitational gifts that open up to all.
No matter what your gift, it should be used for the building up of the whole.
May God bless you and your family this week.

Rev. Rob.
Let’s pray:
Thank you, heavenly Father, for selecting us to work for you. And thank you for all the gifts you have given us. We believe we are vessels unto your honour, you have moulded us to be useful for you.
We are honoured for your call Lord, open our eyes to see the gifts in us that we may use them for your glory and help us to continue the work you called us to do. Amen.

Have a blessed week.
Blessings, Rev. Rob.

LRM Online Worship – 9th August 2020

This week our service focuses on the two essential elements of evangelism: Being and Doing. Rev Rob uses Matthew 14:22-33 and Romans 10:5-17 as his texts. He writes: ‘One of the ways to read these passages is by seeing them as the two essential elements for evangelism – or more literally – spreading the good news.’ He encourages us to take the opportunities to do the work of the evangelist as they appear, and to be reminded that we can call upon the name of the Lord and be saved, as he reaches out to catch us as he did to Peter.’
