Food For Thought from Pastor Robert Weaver
Bulletin for June 26,2016
The Gospel of Luke tells us it was Jesus’ custom to go the Synagogue on the Sabbath day to join in the worship. When Jesus was at the Synagogue in His home town of Nazareth He was given the scroll of the prophet Isaiah and asked to do the reading. After He read the Good News written in Isaiah 61 He proclaimed: “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” Jesus is the Saviour who fulfills the long awaited promise that God would do what is necessary for people to be saved from the punishment for their sin. He then goes on to present examples from the life of Israel that tell us how God thinks about those who are lost in their sin. There were widows in Israel when the famine struck during the days of Elijah but the prophet was sent to a widow outside of the nation, in Zarephath in Sidon. There were other people suffering from leprosy right at home in Israel when Naaman the Syrian was healed in the time of Elisha.
Jesus cares about all people; not just one particular group of people. Jesus has come with the Good News that He saves and that salvation is available to all people. No one is outside of the reach of God’s grace. When He saves, good things happen. He gives freedom to those who are enslaved in their sin. Spiritual blindness is healed and people who are oppressed and hurt are made well. It is the favorable time of the Lord. He came to earth to release us from the punishment of our sin. What else can we do but celebrate that as Christians we have liberty in Jesus.
~ Pastor Robert Weaver
In Psalm 72:8 there is a desire expressed: “May He rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.” As we celebrate our nation on Friday, may it be our desire that Jesus will rule our lives and our land.

Those wishing to donate bottled water (for public use) are asked to contact any one of the GBC Trustees so that a storage place can be arranged. The GBC Trustees wish to thank those who already have donated bottled water as this is not a budgeted item. They also want to make it clear that the water at GBC is safe to drink from any tap.
