Chapter 153 [day 263]: Sunday 6 December
CONTENT IN CHRIST
Good afternoon all
What would it take to satisfy you completely or what or who if unexpectedly taken from you would destroy you? Maybe it’s your children, grandchildren or other family members, or your home or bank account, or your prize possessions or cherished memories. For many people in these days of Covid, it seems what they value most is their personal freedom to do or go to what they want, or to see a return to life as it was.
You go out for a restaurant meal and your expectations are high – you expect excellent food served attractively with good table service, helpful staff and pleasant ambience. Or you order something online and when it arrives you examine to see that it is the correct item, it’s in perfect condition, and it meets or exceeds your expectations. In our consumer society, everyone expects the very best every time,
Today’s service theme is entitled ‘Content in Christ’ implying we are totally satisfied in Christ and know He will NEVER, NEVER ever let us down or fall short. We can confidently place all our trust and faith in Christ knowing He will never disappoint or fail.
The service video lasts 48 minutes >>> https://falconlodgechapel.sermon.net/21706039
