Andrew Benson's thoughts on the Father's love

Written by
"The Prodigal Son" Charlie Mackesy
 
 
 
At church a couple of Sundays ago, our guest Jon Petersen asked us to reflect on the following scripture:
 
“Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us to be holy and without fault in His eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ” Ephesians 1:4-5
 
What incredible words and what an incredible God that we can not only know Jesus as Saviour but have a Father who loved us before we were conceived and adopted us into His family, not as slaves or orphans but as full sons and daughters with the full inheritance that that name invites. 
 
As Jon was reminding us, the story of the Prodigal Son reminds us of how lavish the Father was, loving his son to the extreme by running to greet him whilst still far away, and bestowing upon him that all-important ring, that we can do business on behalf of our Father. Incredible for a son who, days before, was squandering away his father’s wealth.
 
As 21st Century Brits we can often forget that when we were far away, God ran towards each one of us, and that nothing we can do can change the course of the tidal wave of love that God has for us. We remember salvation but somehow stop short of the fullness of God’s plan for our lives.
 
On the Ignite discipleship course last year, we had 17 students meeting every Monday evening in term time to build together a foundation of Bible knowledge and discover together the fullness of our identity in Christ.
 
In January 2017, we are looking to run the course again, for a 7 month duration, on Monday evenings in term time at Revelation Central, the church offices on St. Pancras, Chichester. 
 
If you are eager to know more about Ignite, or interested to hear more about discipleship within Revelation Family Church, why not contact Lou Moore and Andrew Benson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

A New Start

Written by

Someone once said: “Constant change is here to stay”; the past two years we have embarked on a deliberate journey of change as we have sought to bring the two churches together (Revelation Church & Chichester Family Church) in obedience to a prophetic word from God.

New journeys are always full of excitement as well as uncertainties and apprehension (i.e. the mess that Ant referred to on Sunday!)

As I prayed about this new journey, I felt God drop this prophetic verse into my heart: “…When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it. Then you will know which way to go, since you have never been this way before...” Joshua 3:3-4

It occurred to me that there seems to be a remarkable pattern in the Bible in times of new beginnings, both in the Old as well as the New Testament, as God’s people embarked on a new journey (a move towards the promised land). Although full of uncertainties, apprehension and chaos, God’s presence was with them and there is a concentration of the miraculous during this time – there are more miracles in the book of Exodus than any other in the Old Testament.

Like with the children of Israel in this new journey, God promises to be with us & to lead us as we keep our eyes on Him.

As we embark in this new venture of the two churches having become one, we are really excited about the future and looking forward to the great things that God has in store for us and through us to spill over to the wider community and we will see people being added to the church as well people’s lives being transformed.
