I love Sunday Evenings at Eastside !
The evening congregation is normally a little smaller than the morning congregation, but there is something about our evening worship that I treasure. For one, it is the fact that the people that come on a Sunday evening are usually devoted worshipers. This fact contributes greatly to the ‘atmosphere’ of our worship. There is an aura of expectancy. There is love. There is spiritual fellowship. There is good singing. There is focus on ‘testimony’ and ‘prayer for the world’ , and obviously… there is the focus on the Word of God. I often say, with tongue in cheek, that I love to put our people to sleep with the Word of God on Sunday evening! The Word of God comforts the believer, so that they can go to bed that night in the knowledge that our God reigns! I know of no better sleeping pill than that knowledge!
What better way to end the week and the 7th day, than in worship! I simply do not understand what would keep anyone at home for that hour and a half, when there is such wonderful opportunity to exalt Christ and to enjoy choice fellowship.
THE WORD OF GOD IN 2013
At the beginning of this year we come to the second half of Paul’s letter to the Romans, as we consider Chapters 12 -16. This is a wonderfully practical portion of the Bible , for here we find the application of gospel truth – that which we have learned in the first 11 chapters.
We shall learn that the doctrines of grace will make us gracious. This is indeed the mark of a true believer. No matter where you come from, and how sinful your past has been … if Christ has set you free you shall be free indeed!
And if you have been saved by the grace of God you will exhibit the marks of that grace, by growing in grace (2 Pet. 3:18).
So, dear believer, if you are in Windhoek and if you have never experienced the thrill of ending Sunday with Christ and Christian fellowship, then come meet with us between 18h00 and 19h15 .
And, oh yes, you might stay a little longer, because after the service there will be refreshments and some more chatting in our Courtyard Café.
