Welcome to the recording from today’s service. The message, brought by Matt, challenges us regarding the temporary nature of our lives on earth compared to the eternal citizenship in heaven we have as our hope in Jesus. Before that, there is a video of one of our songs from this morning’s service, Endless Hallulujah by Matt Redmond.
Here is the message: Where is your Focus? By Matt Petley
Philippians 3: 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
Matthew 6:19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Good morning. As per Hebrews 10:24-25, even though we are still unable to meet together as a congregation due to Government restrictions, we can continue to encourage each other, to ‘consider how to stir one another to love and good works’. And we continue to hope that in July we will be able to meet up together again. DV!
This morning’s message is taken from Colossians 3:1-4, but first here is a worship video from CityAlight, Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me.
God bless, Andy. Read the rest of this entry »
This is part two of a two-part series on having an eternal perspective on life. Listen to Andy’s message here:
Mat.6:19: ” Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Psalm 90:12: “So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Luke 12:16: “Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. 17 And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ 18 So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.” ’ 20 But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’ 21 “So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
This is part one of a two-part series on having an eternal perspective on life. Listen to Andy’s message here:
For Zion’s sake I will not My peace, And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, And her salvation as a lamp that burns.
2 The Gentiles shall see your righteousness, And all kings your glory.
You shall be called by a new name, Which the mouth of the Lord will name.
3 You shall also be a crown of glory In the hand of the Lord,
And a royal diadem In the hand of your God.
4 You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, Nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; But you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah;
For the Lord delights in you, And your land shall be married.
