Sunday 8th November

Father of creation,

Jesus Saviour and healer of the world

Holy Spirit helper and counsellor,

we ask You to come and inhabit the time

spent with You,

as we listen and focus on the words

and music presented to us.

We ask this in Jesus' name.

Amen.

Giving

Thank you for all your support of Wrington Chapel and its work in the past.

We realise that many people are hard-pressed at the moment, and church may be the last thing on your mind. However, we are looking to the future when we can reopen and support each other in our usual way. Unfortunately, being closed does not mean our expenses are substantially less. If you already have a standing order set up, then thank you. But if you haven't, please consider getting in touch with Steve Osman and setting one up. If that is impossible, please continue to save up your collection money, and we will collect it all together when we reopen. Please note that the rules do not allow us to claim any Gift Aid on collections that are not taken up in church. So do NOT drop collection money off at Steve's house. Simply take out a standing order, or save it up for that great and glorious reopening day.

This week we focus on

 1st Peter - Reasons For Hope

This is week two of our look at 1st Peter. 

Today we look at why we should believe in God, 

and what that means for us. 

If asked, could we give a reason for our faith?

1st Peter 3 verses 8 to 18 

Suffering for doing good

8 Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. 

9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. 

10 For,

'Whoever would love life and see good days
must keep their tongue from evil
and their lips from deceitful speech.
11 They must turn from evil and do good;
they must seek peace and pursue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.'

                       13 Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? 

   14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. 

                'Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.'

15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. 

But do this with gentleness and respect, 

16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behaviour in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 

17 For it is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. 

18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit.

      Lord,  
you have said the truth will set us free. 
Help us, today, to take hold of your great truth
     of the gospel of Jesus, and let it work deeply                 into our lives. 

   Then, in the great joy you promise that brings, 
   Speak through us, and bring life.
           Amen
