I know this Sunday is commonly referred to as Easter Sunday but I much prefer Resurrection Sunday. It tells us exactly what this celebration is about and it is the main reason why we are here today worshiping at Free Grace church. Without the resurrection there would be no Gospel to share – no good news. But because of Jesus work on earth that finished on the Cross with the final victory over death and sin we come here to recognise and share in the wonderful truth of the gospel and of God’s grace and mercy toward mankind.
I have been holding our Prime Minister Theresa May in prayer as she has the difficult task of leading our country the UK in Brexit (British exit) of the European Union.
The Bible says in the book of 1 Timothy 2:1-2 (KJV) I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
Let us lift our Prime Minister and government in prayer that the transition of leaving the EU goes smoothly. She goes around the UK today appealing to those against Brexit to back her and keep our nation united.
I admire her for her strength for battling through a thankless job as a leader as the passage of scripture says she is seeking for our nation "that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty."
Poisoning of double Russian agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia...
Such a shame for this father and daughter who are in hospital with suspected poisoning.
I pray they will recover and catch however did this shameful act. 2 Chronicles 7:14-15 KJV If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
Billy Graham the Evangelist has gone to be with the Lord at the great age of 99. I have listened to his sermons over the years but mostly when I was a child before and after I was converted.
I can’t remember the radio station, it might have been Trans World Radio, but late at night the program, Hour of Decision, came on. I used to turn the tuner to hear beeps before a devotion was broadcast.
Franklin Graham will be preaching at the end of the year in the UK in Blackpool and before that in the area of Lancashire a number of events will be taking place.
It is time now to PRAY for the UK to hear the Gospel preached where people can come and listen and be convicted of sin and converted through the power of the Holy Spirit.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
