GOD'S GOT IT COVERED!


Great time this morning as we all got together from Clay Cross, Alfreton and Chesterfield at the Winding Wheel.  Such a buzz in the room as people were catching up with each other over coffee before the worship began. Worship focussed on the nature of God's love towards us and our response to that love.

Peter's message: God's Got It Covered!  Noah was instructed to paint the ark inside and out with pitch (same root word in hebrew for atonement) to waterproof it against the water.  When God's judgement came, in the form of the flood, Noah and his family were not only waterproofed but judgement-proofed too!  In the same way, we as Christians are told again and again in the New Testament that we are 'in Christ' and in him we are also judgement-proofed.
Romans 8:1 "There is now, no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus"

Whatever situations we might be facing, no matter how big a mountain it may seem, the work of Christ on the cross has paid for it and God is more than ready, willing and able to help.  He's got it covered!
