Trust that you are going ok. Keep looking to Jesus to find the peace required to face each day. If you have a time of anxiety you are not alone. Take your feelings seriously. Look after yourself. Read just a little of the news so that you are informed. Don’t listen to the news all day on the radio or internet and don’t watch too much of the news on TV. May God help you with positive and helpful things to do as you stay at home. Get in touch with each other when you can. I will email you and SMS you more often than normal. We can deliver this Link to those of you who don’t receive emails. But even the delivery of the Link may become too difficult to do in the future, but thankfully we are in God’s Hands.

Wonderful verses from Romans 8 for us to consider when we think about our daily activities.

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:31-39, ESV.

Are there any verses that stand out for you from this passage? Could you share with me what is your favourite Bible verse?

I read the verses from Romans 8 at Nancy’s funeral service on Tuesday at the funeral parlour. So, for me, verses 37 to 39 are very helpful.

And how do we know that Jesus loves us? He died on the Cross for our forgiveness and to give us eternal life. Therefore, the Cross motivates us to love.

Follow the service outline you have received from Sally on Sunday morning or at a time that suits you.

Let me know if you find a helpful on line service to watch. Alick & Glenys enjoyed Rostrevor Baptist Church on line last Sunday. http://www.rostrevorbaptist.asn.au/wordpress/
