The last few weeks have been deeply troubling in our world and nation. Let’s be faithful in prayer at all times.

On Sunday July 10th it was our joy to witness the baptism in our second service of six (6) persons. Their testimonies were powerful.  We give the Lord thanks for his salvation.

Last weekend was Fun in the Son and many came to know the Lord through this remarkable ministry. Let’s be praying for the discipleship of new converts.

Swallow Olympics
This week promises to be very exciting at Swallow as we have the finals of the Swallow Olympics on Friday, commencing at 6:45p.m. The team scores are very close after several rounds of Olympic events. Come out and support your team. This is it!

.Song Of The Week

Reflections

Last Sunday we reflected on Truth and Love (Part II) from 1 John 5 and explored the questions: “How do you know whether you are a child of God or not? How do you know whether you have eternal life?” Eternal life is not about being able to live forever but rather is the abundant life that flows to us from God in the here and now, and transcends eternity. The Scriptures indicate that there is life after death for all humanity, however, some will share a glorious life with God whilst others will share a horrific life with the devil and his minions in hell. The former, those who share life with God, have eternal life, whilst the latter, who share life with the devil, do not. 

John answers the question as to who belongs to God and as to who has eternal life by reiterating the truth and love test. John does not advance his case in a nice neat linear fashion but approaches it like a spiral staircase suggesting that at different points on the staircase you may see the same thing which you saw before, however as you progress you are making steps upwards. John argues metaphorically in this way, intentionally repeating himself as he is taking us somewhere - a place of deeper understanding of God’s revelation

Finally

As we face the challenges of our troubled world let’s grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus and take everything to God in prayer.

14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of him.1 John 5: 14-15

In Christ's Love,
David
