"....He swore to your fathers to give you a land flowing with milk and honey...."

As Israel exited Egypt, before them lay a great land filled with unknown. Unfriendly peoples, harsh conditions, limited food and water resources, little knowledge of the direction headed to a land that was only a fanciful tale of people that had long passed on. Yet was the reality of God's word spoken through His servant Moses. The promised land of Canaan was a good land, one that was filled green pastures and water, along with other resources that made it abundantly fruitful. Urged on by the Lord, they left behind them the old life of servitude and bondage, yet moving in faith having the promises of God's word. Very similar to life in Christ today for the Christian, He's delivered us from sin, now leading us, we press on toward the goal of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Opportunities

Today after Service - If you can, please stay for some food and fellowship right after service.

Black Friday Blues - Immediately after the holiday we celebrate as thanksgiving. Contrary though, is the fact that so many take on the additional stress of shopping, juggling bills and additional pressures of how to and why this or that. Don't get caught up and be in prayer for those around you during these stressful times where we've taken Jesus out of the season.

Prayer Points

River of Life Mission - As the volume of meals and ministry opportunities have ramped up at the River of Life Mission, please keep all the staff and guests, as well as the neighboring community, in prayer.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem - As the Middle East heats up, pray for the nation of Israel along with all of those in this region who have come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
