Principals of the Mercy of God

For the past two weeks Ps Simon and Jan have been away so my lovely husband Jeffrey has been preaching each week. His messages have been a two part series called ‘The Principals of the Mercy of God’. I know that this message topic has been on his heart for quite some time and it was a great blessing to listen, learn and watch from what God has taught him over the last few months. I also must add, Jeff is a very animated preacher and used lots of props, illustrations and cannot stand still for more than 2 seconds. It was a really fun and exciting two weeks!

Below is a summary of the 12 Principals of God’s Mercy that he shared and taught us about.

1. Mercy before a person sins

2. Mercy after a person has sinned

3. Mercy to give all creatures according to their need

4. Mercy so that human kind may not be distressed

5. Gracious if humankind is in distress

6. Slow to Anger

7. Plenteous in Mercy

8. Keeping Mercy Unto Thousands

9. Forgiving Iniquity

10. Forgiving Transgression

11. Forgiving Sin

12. Pardoning

He liked these to us as people and reminded us of the great Mercy that our Father in Heaven has for us and the kind of Mercy that we should have towards people in this world. He also demonstrated just how GREAT God’s mercy is for us and how difficult (if not impossible) it is for us to have Mercy the same as God’s. However we should always be trying to have Mercy like God’s and be asking Him to help us be merciful to those around us.

I’ll leave you with some photos of Jeffrey’s preaching and if you would like to listen to his two part series ‘The Principals of the Mercy of God’ than please head over to Palmwoods Baptist Church website.

Also if you visit our Home Page you will be able to listen to a song that I sang on Sunday morning by Amy Grant titled ‘Better than a Hallelujah’. Make sure you have Quicktime player to listening!

First Church Service of 2012

Please Note: This post was written at the beginning on 2012 however I haven’t had internet access for quite some time!

It’s wonderful to be back in church and welcoming in 2012! There’s something about a New Year beginning that is refreshing and exciting! It’s great to see our page counter on the blog going up, so for all of you who keep visiting and waiting on a new post, here it is! And hopefully I’ll be able to update this blog space a little more this year! Please leave us a comment if there is anything in particular you would like to see on the blog in 2012!

This morning Ps Simon preached a message titled ‘How to be Profitable!’ Sorry folks, no handy finance tips in this message but what a great blessing it was. I especially got two very important points out of this message

1. We are not profitable to family and friends if we don’t listen to God.

2. Don’t refuse the voice of God this 2012

These are two very important points that I think we all need to be reminded of now and again, I certainly do. If you feel like your relationship with God isn’t very close or you can’t remember that last time you had a good talk with your God, than take the time now and ask God to help you draw near to Him and ask Him to forgive you. Our God is loving and forgiving and He has never left your side but sometimes we just get lost in the jungle that is life. We cannot survive this world without the amazing love and peace of our Saviour so don’t waste another second, go to God in prayer and receive the grace and love that He has for you right now!

Happy 2012 everyone, I hope this year brings you many blessings and moments you will treasure for a lifetime!

I welcomed in 2012 with my lovely husband and friends at Southbank!

Because of Jesus Day

Last Sunday we had an extra special service to celebrate our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It was called our ‘Because of Jesus Day’ and we had lots of special items rather than our usual Sunday morning service. Here are some photos I snapped of our service and I must say what a blessing it was to be part of the service singing.

If you would like to hear the testimonies and the song I sang during the service, please visit and look for the audio clip on the front page of the website.

Creation Vs Evolution

Hi everyone, it’s nice to be back writing a blog post for Palmwoods Baptist Church. It’s been a while but as usual, life has been hectic.

I wanted to share with you what we’ve been studying on a Sunday evening. Before I tell you about it let me extend a warm welcome to anybody who would like to come along on Sunday evenings to studying and hear from the bible.

We meet 6pm at Palmwoods Baptist Church and anyone is welcome. Visit our website for directions

On Sunday evenings we have had Paul Marsman leading us through a study based on Creation Vs Evolution. I for one am thoroughly enjoying it and have learnt so much about our universe and our Creator. I’m not really into science but this has been excellent and I’m getting so much out of it! It blows my mind just how amazing our God really is, in fact I can’t comprehend it!

Paul has been taking us through some Kent Hovind seminars and seriously you should jump on youtube and check out some of his stuff. Be warned though, you may suffer from information overload because he has A LOT to share! I especially love the way he backs everything up with scripture and really lets God’s word do the teaching! After all, who better to be taught by then God Himself!

Did you know there are 6 meanings of Evolution?

1. Cosmic – Origin of time, space and matter

2. Chemical Evolution – origin of higher elements from hydrogen and helium.

3. Stellar and planetary evolution – origin of stars and planets forming

4. Organic evolution – origin of life – from non living to living

5. Macro evolution – changing from one kind of another

6. Micro evolution – variation within kinds

The only evolution that we know is possible is number 6 – Micro evolution for example dog breeds. We have the same animal but variations of breed – poodle, pug, Pomeranian etc…!
