Letter to the Congregation – 29 September 2017

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus                                             29 September 2017

 

Have you noticed how time flies? It’s almost Christian … again!

 

Some of you might remember our son Edwin. On Monday 25 September he turned 44. I can remember the night I needed to rush Jen to the Mowbray Maternity Home, almost at the foot of Table Mountain. It is crystal clear and vivid in my mind. It was the “other” day … time flies!

 

Because time flies, as God’s people, we need to bring glory to God through behaviour, conduct and service … because we never know how quickly “our” personal time will fly past!

 

Did Peter have something like this in mind when he penned (under inspiration) …

1Pe 4:7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. 8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 9 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
