Going deeper...to go further

The more rooted we are in God and in His Word, the more fruitful we become in His purposes

Advent is a time full of expectation. It’s three weeks and three days of anticipation and excitement that the most wonderful day of the year is drawing near. Advent means the arrival. It implies something (or in this case Someone) is about to burst through the doors and change everything, forever.

This December, as a Church, we’ll be focusing our time on Sundays on what it means to be an advent-minded people - a people waiting, watching and living ready for the arrival of Jesus in our lives. What can we learn from those who lived the Christmas story in real time? How does God want us to make space for Him in our hearts and homes?

As well as this, in our Daily Reading Plan, we’ll be going on an advent-ure through the Scriptures to see what the Bible says about this promised Messiah and our Immanuel, alongside reading a Psalm a day.

Whether for the first time, or for the thousandth, let’s set some time aside to go deeper in the Word and reflect on who He says He is so that we can go further together in His purposes.


11 Dec: The Chief Cornerstone

Isaiah 28:16-16

16So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.

Psalm 11

For the director of music. Of David.1In the Lord I take refuge. How then can you say to me: “Flee like a bird to your mountain.2For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the stringsto shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.3When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” 4The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord is on his heavenly throne.He observes everyone on earth; his eyes examine them.5The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he hates with a passion.6On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot. 7For the Lord is righteous, he loves justice; the upright will see his face.
