Statement of faith

For some, the holidays may be over … especially families with children of school age.

Here in Levenmouth, back-to-school advertising slogans appear quite early in some shops, along with a varied display of Christmas cards.  (I got in quick as there is always a scarcity of Christian ones in December

Some areas in Scotland have a return-to-school earlier than others but I think by now most will have restarted the new term … exciting, challenging and anxious moments await, hard work possibly and, for some, a completely new daily routine, some heavy hearted, but others like the young, gentleman visitor I had the pleasure of chatting with, was “holidayed out” and couldn’t wait to get back and stuck in …

So what did we at Buckhaven Community Church do over the holiday period?   Well – perversely we went -  ” back to school! “   In actual fact a “Prayer School” facilitated and led by Bert McKaig over a period of 6 weeks.

 Being on the receiving end of Bert’s zing and zest for Jesus, we were excited, challenged, encouraged to enthusiastically and expectantly participate in prayer, confidently and boldly entering the Throne room of Heaven.

“We have an invitation to connect with the Throne Room of God, not only to have instant access but to have direct access.  He has made Himself available to you at all times.  Think of it. Direct contact with the sovereign God of the universe.  Through prayer we have more access than all other created beings.  Archangels, Seraphims etc. all stand in His Holy presence but we are allowed to speak and He, the sovereign God answers us.  How awesome is that.  In prayer you approach God as one of His children – you don’t need an angel to introduce you – you are known to the Father all because of the finished work of Jesus on the cross.”

 (Excerpt from “Challenge to Change through Prayer” – Bert McKaig, Prayer School teaching manual)

As the fields ripen and the harvest begins …… another harvest is on the horizon – God is calling us to PRAYER, to bring in a harvest of souls into the Kingdom of God.

Bert asked the Lord for a sentence or phrase that would get us excited again about prayer – this is what he was given – “Prayer takes us out of this world in order to change things in this world”

Do I hear a “Wow” ??

So, how do we respond?   Are we praying enough, asking for direction, obedient to God’s will - like that  first day at  school, suitably clothed, equipped, expectant,  ready to take that first step on an amazing journey of revelation and commitment ?     Count BCC in.  We certainly want to step out and partner with heaven to reap the great harvest on earth.       How about you ?

 

Matthew 9:37-38 New International Version (NIV)

37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”

Blessings to all

Phyllis and all at BCC
