Thought for August

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV)

As we look at these 2 short verses we are told of how important the Word of God is for our lives and from whom it comes. As Christians we hold the inspired Word of God as our highest standard, nothing else comes even close because it is the words of the very God of the universe whom we serve that it contains. His statutes and laws and teaching are perfect and they help us navigate through this world that we live in.

Recently within the church we have sought to establish a church library, a place where resources are available to help us as we dig deeper in God’s word. The Lord has gifted many people to write good, solid and reliable books that can be used to help us deepen our understanding of the scriptures and inspire us in our Christian life and witness. The library is still in its infancy but it is hoped that over time it will offer a rich collection of useful tools that will help us apply the wonderful teaching found within the pages of our Bibles to our lives. We plan to be decidedly picky as to what the library contains as we want the best and most useful resources that we can provide to be available. Unfortunately along with the large number of excellent books available there comes some decidedly questionable material and your prayers for discernment in this area will always be a great help.

Along with the library we are excited to be able to partner with 10 Of Those who are a distributor of some excellent Christian material. Anything they stock or sell must fit within their statement of faith which is available on their website. Their work is seen very much as a ministry and not as a business so that they can get useful material into the hands of believers. Through partnering with them we now offer an online bookstore on our website that stocks thousands of titles. Please have a look and see what might be useful for yourself, family, children or grandchildren.

May God bless you as you continue to study His Word and seek His ways.

Every Blessing

Gordon
