THIS WEEK'S PASTOR'S DESK
The One who spoke the world into existence entered materially into His World and “split time in half”. He came to rescue the world because a great betrayal occurred. One of His chief agents was filled with self-deception and conceited envy and manipulated a serpent to his bidding in destroying the very last and highest of the Lord’s “very good” creation. Disappointingly she fell for it – and her husband who supposed to protect her failed in his most basic of responsibilities. Their fall from innocence and into grace plunged that was momentarily and formerly under their vice-regency. The world had now gone rogue. When the Eternal Son of God submitted to His co-LORD, the Holy Spirit placed Him into a virgin’s womb by uniting his consciousness and sinless essence with the ovum of this young virgin. In doing so, Immanuel relinquished none of His sovereign power or prerogatives but chose to lay aside His glory and become fully human. And for those who came to recognise who He actually was, it ever caused them to fall down at His feet in adoration, or shrink back from Him in terror. The side-effect of those who who adored him was a new ability to sleep. If you have trouble sleeping because of worries, you too can discover how an acquaintance with the Lordship of Jesus the Christ can also help you to sleep better….[CONTINUE READING]
This Sunday, we’ll be worshiping together, praying for our state and nation and ministering to those with prayer requests. In our Sunday 10AM service, Pastor Andrew Corbett will be presenting part 12 of the series, Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians: “Walk By The Spirit”. If you’re joining with us online, leave a comment on YouTube or on Facebook and let us know where you’re watching from.
A FRIENDLY VIDEO CHAT AFTER THE SERVICE IN OUR ZOOM FOYER
At Legana Christian Church if you join our 10am Sunday service online you have a chance to meet with others after the service via Zoom for a short video ‘coffee and chat time’ in our Zoom Foyer. You can join others face-to-face and chat over a cuppa straight after the service before heading off for the rest of your day. You are welcome to give this a try if you want to connect with others but for some reason can’t attend church in person. Come along once … come along every week, stay a few minutes … stay until it closes, it’s up to you. All you need to do is click on the link a couple of minutes after the service finishes and wait to be welcomed in.

The relationship between a follower of Christ and His Church is that of a family where there is deep love for each other. The Scriptures say that God sets the solitary into a “family” (Psalm 68:6). Families are held together by love, not rules, constitutions, or contracts. The Church is described in Scripture as a family “household” with “members” (Eph. 2:19) in the same way that any family has ‘members’. Families are places of love and commitment which cultivate trust. And it’s the same in a local church. Believers belong because they are placed together by God (1Cor. 12:24). Just as in any family household, God places authority within that household. Usually in a natural family that is the role of the parents. In a church it is its leadership comprised of pastors and elders, a management board, team and department leaders, and home-group leaders…[More]
