A MESSAGE FROM OUR MINISTER – REV GILL DANIEL
Bacon, eggs, sausage, black pudding, beans, mushrooms, tomatoes, toast, fresh ground coffee, fresh fruits, and muffins: Could life get any better than this hotel breakfast?
What a Banquet!
I was assured that someone would collect the payment, but no one came!
Still, no-one came!
I was keen not to leave without paying, so when I checked out, I tried for a third time, to pay the due £20, but nothing had been recorded on the hotel bill, so the receptionist confidently assured me there was nothing to pay!
That’s how my humdinger of a scrummy breakfast became a free unmerited gift!
I was naturally grateful for the goodwill of the hotel.
As we enter the season of Advent we look ahead with much hope for some unrestricted Christmas banquets, but more importantly we look to the indescribable free gift of God. Jesus broke into the world as a tiny baby to bring an incredulous free gift of eternal life and love, forgiveness and peace.
Jesus frequently refers to his kingdom as being like a free feast for all who are hungry and thirsty for His Kingdom.
Jesus says everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet (Mt 22:4)
You are loved, you are forgiven, you matter to Jesus, and this eternal love is free. Come to the feast!
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! (2 Cor 9:15)
With love and Blessings this Advent Season
