"At The Mission - Leamington Spa Seventh-day Adventist Church, all are welcome to come for fellowship and open bible discussions. In this community focused on Jesus Christ we endeavour to engage in an ever-growing process as we continually learn more about ourselves, the Universe, and God who created all things. We believe that God's creative power is reflected in humankind, so we value and practice creativity in our worship services. We also believe God wants us to live life up to its full potential - and we desire to help others who journey on the same road."
Pastor Milan and Michelle Gugleta, The Mission, Leamington Spa.
Verse of the Day - John 7:30-31 At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his time had not yet come. Still, many in the crowd put their faith in him. They said, "When the Christ comes, will he do more miraculous signs than this man?" — John 7:30-31
Thoughts on Today's Verse The enemies of Jesus had tried repeatedly to seize him. Yet the Gospel of John reminds us again and again that no one could seize Jesus until he offered himself up to them. Jesus followed God's timetable just as carefully as he obeyed his Father's will. So we can know with assurance that when Jesus died, he did so to redeem us and obey his Father's will, not because he was powerless to defend himself. Jesus' death is a voluntary sacrifice, a triumph of his obedience to his Father's will over his own will for preservation. He obeyed and we are saved! He offered himself as a sacrifice so we could be adopted into the Father's family!
