The Word - sown

Published: Sunday, 19 November 2017

Today is our ‘Worship Together’ service where the Kids Alive children will remain in church and have the opportunity to participate. At Naringal we do this once a term because we believe that the church and the Word of God are for people of all ages no matter how young or old. We want to encourage families to worship together.
The service today will be different. Listen to the extra noises. Watch the children running around or wriggle in the seat in front of you. Savour the joy and laughter. Let us think of it not just as distraction or a service only for the kids. But rather, let us give thanks to God, the One who speaks to all generations. And let the generations, from the oldest to the youngest, in the same place, in the same room, worship and glorify the Lord together.

‘Glorify the Lord with me. Let us exalt his name together.’ Psalm 34:3

The Word - Light

Psalm 119:105-112, John 1:1-5

Psalm 119:105 (NIV2011) "105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path."

In these passages, we see three things which are synonymous:
• The Word & Jesus John 1:1
• Light & life John 1:4
• Darkness & death Psalm 119:107, John 1:5

The Word offers us light for:
• Today (a lamp unto my feet), Psalm 37:23, 1 John 1:7-9
• Eternity (a light unto my path), Psalm 16:11, Philippians 3:13-14

We all need guidance and direction in our lives.Are you trying to work it out on your own? Proverbs 14:12 (NIV2011)
"12 There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death." Or are you walking in the light?

1 John 1:6-7 (NIV2011) "6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin."
