I don’t believe that church should be boring, in fact, quite the opposite! When we read the Bible, with its rich tapestry of lives changed and supernatural events, it really tells the epic journey of God’s plan for our reconciliation to himself.
Throughout the 66 books that make up our Old and New Testaments, we find our Lord Jesus Christ consistently referenced, prophesied and ultimately recorded as the saviour of the world!

When we set our hearts on worshipping him, even in the most challenging of times, we unleash something very precious to God and to ourselves, and that’s authenticity! Jesus himself dreamt of a time when ‘true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth’ (John 4:23), and in the following verse he says, ‘These are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks.’
