In this week's sermon:
Since God is all-powerful and forgiving, why doesn’t He simply wipe out all human sin? Our God is a God of justice - it’s part of His unchanging character. When we see people committing terrible acts against us or others, then we can typically appreciate a sense of justice - something must be done to make things right. But what about the wrong things we've done? God’s justice and His mercy have worked together in a beautiful mystery that is revealed in Jesus Christ. In this sermon we’ll be exploring this awesome wisdom and plan of God for His righteous forgiveness of sin and how we get to experience this for ourselves.

GROW IN CHRISTLIKENESS THROUGH SERVING OTHERS
This week we are introduced to Kay and Holger Lorenz and their organisation, Mercy Aids, which supports soup kitchens and safe spaces for the vulnerable in impoverished communities. This Mandela Day we’ve partnered with Mercy Aids to rebuild a wall behind one of these “safe houses” in the Fisantekraal area. This house is run by a remarkable lady named Maria, who provides a soup kitchen as well as a homework club and support group for girls. Your financial giving is itself an act of love that helps to continue the good work that these ladies like Maria are doing with the support of Mercy Aids. In the near future we’ll be calling on your support in practical ways as well - there is a real blessing to be experienced in serving others with your time and talents too. In the meantime we ask that you pray for Mercy Aids and the work they do in the community.
