This Saturday/Sabbath we will once again assemble together as one church, with people in the Lowestoft Church building, with people on Zoom and with others watching via Facebook. The Family Service will start at 11.15am.
The test of a person's religious life and character is not what he or she does in the exceptional moments of life, but what he or she does in the ordinary times, when there is nothing tremendous or exciting. When no one is looking or cheering. The worth of a person is revealed in their attitude to ordinary things when he or she is not before the floodlights. Enoch was such a person, who walked with God, and he was not, for God took him (Genesis 5:24).
One author writes "Enoch's walking was a surrender or act of will, acted upon himself. This brought him into a state of walking with God. This is not about salvation, that is a reflexive work of the Lord, where we the object are taken into a state of salvation. This walking was a reflective surrender (act) by Enoch himself, that took him into the state of walking with God."
We must intentionally and continually put away anything that hinders close and sweet communion with the Lord.
Blessings to you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
