Pastor Letter for April 2014
Dear Members and Friends
Good April everyone, we just past a March very pleasant and plenty of rain in Sydney and thank God for the desperately needed rain in Queensland too. March was a time of thinking about the life of Jesus, His will for us, His great plans for our future and His life death and resurrection that changed the history of mankind and the universe. I personally want to thank the Lord for season of change but stable blessings that we have in the Lord Jesus Christ by faith. I thank God for all the cell groups growing in the Lord, Monday cell is growing in sharing and praying for each other and exchanging Godís revelation with one another, Tuesday cell is studying the book of Leviticus and the feasts of Israel which is directly related to our time, our faith , our worship and future in Christ. Thursday cell is studying Matthew with great momentum and Friday cell is now reaching Revelation 15 this April. Praise God His words really help us to see clear pictures of our own lives, what god is doing right now through us and in us and so exciting to know and believe what our futures lies ahead of us and we are saved by grace as we have faith in Jesus name. April is the month we can celebrate life in Christ because of His redemption
ď 2 Corinthians 5:21Ē God caused the one who didnít know sin to be sin for our sake so that through him we could become the righteousness of God.Ē Without the death of Christ and the perfect and sinless son of God we all will be judged in our hopeless sinful life but God demonstrate His love, His justice, His saving act of salvation in Jesus sacrificial death on the cross so that we are redeemed by his blood. We can also celebrate the death of the law which always condemn us because we are unrighteous according to Godís standard and holiness, Romans 3: 20 20 It follows that no human being will be treated as righteous in his presence by doing what the Law says, because the knowledge of sin comes through the Law. However when Jesus died for all the sinners on the cross we are set free from the law which condemn us Galatians 3:13 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse for usóbecause it is written, Everyone who is hung on a tree is cursed.
Finally the resurrection of Jesus is our victory over sin and death and we are declared before God as holy and righteous. Romans 4:25 who was handed over to death for our trespasses and was raised for our justification. Have a blessed April as you celebrate the death of Jesus, his power over the law and His resurrection that make you righteous. Hallelujah.
