Occasionally there are moments where it seems as though God has taken over and there is a real sense of his presence. Several times in St Peters I felt that. Last night in St Thomas’s was one such occasion. I left the night so thankful for all who helped and who were there – so grateful for Ray Galea – the kind of Christian who makes you glad to be a Christian – but most of all for Christ and the good news that is the Gospel. This was not just an enjoyable evening – it was an ‘anointed’ night. I hope that some of that ‘anointing’ is conveyed through this video. The actual event starts about ten minutes in.
One of the things that struck me as we talked was how the Gospel is the answer to the racial and ethnic tensions we face in our world. Ray is a pastor of a church in West Sydney with 71 different nationalities and ethnic groups. All united in Christ. What a wonderful blessing and testimony to the healing that Christ brings.
The subject for the evening was chapter three of Magnificent Obsession – the Message of Christ. Next week we have Rob Smith and we will be discussing the Cross of Christ.
I think this would be a great video to share…..
