Good morning.


Whenever something takes time it requires patience. Peter encourages us to humble ourselves before God and if we are patient we will be exalted in due course. Peter says, "Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time." (1 Peter 5:6)


One of the best ways to humble ourselves is to serve others with the gifts God has given us. In serving others we practice patience by using our gifts to further the kingdom of God and not our own agenda. Whether we receive recognition or not, isn’t the focus of serving. It is about honoring God and serving people.


Peter has this to say to each of us: "you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms."


(1 Peter 4:10)


When serve others, our focus is shifted and we receive a new perspective on our situation. We encourage you to patiently listen to the needs of others and to serve them with the gifts God has given you.


We have a wonderful opportunity to discover our spiritual gift(s) in the "Gifted" series which will run for 6 weeks beginning 6 February 2022. "Gifted" will be run in homes across Centurion as well as in Zoom groups.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
