Monday Spot (5 March 2018)

First of all we must apologise to those readers who have come expecting an account of yesterdays meetings. As posted on Friday, all meetings at Chatham and Strood were cancelled because of dangerous weather conditions so this report is in danger of being extremely short.

However, perhaps readers would like to ponder on the words of a song used in Sunday’s devotional reading from Words of Life, the theme for the January edition being ‘Joy in tough times’. The words are these.

1.
Saviour, I long to be
Nearer to thee;
In word and deed and thought
Holy to be.
O take this heart of mine
And seal me ever thine,
Fill me with love divine,
For service, Lord!

2.
Make me a blazing fire
Where’er I go,
That to a dying world
Thee I may show:
How thou hast bled and died
That none may be denied,
But in thy bleeding side
A refuge find.

3.
So shall my moments flow
In praising thee,
For thou hast never failed
To strengthen me.
Filled with the Holy Ghost,
Saved to the uttermost,
In Christ alone I’ll boast
And forward go.

It would be good if we could all identify with the words and make these last four lines our own personal commitment.

Filled with the Holy Ghost,
Saved to the uttermost,
In Christ alone I’ll boast
And forward go.

Have a great (and warmer) week and lets all look forward to the springtime weather which can’t be very far away now. God bless you.
