Welcome to our website
The other week I talked about having a “come as you are” culture at church. This means that we don’t make people conform to our standards of dress or behaviour before we accept them. This can be easier said than done! But Jesus is our supreme example. “God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8). There was absolutely no way we deserved to be accepted and loved by God, and yet we are!
We can all “come as we are” too. As you come to worship this Sunday, remember that Jesus doesn’t demand perfection in us. Nor is there is a perfect time or spot to approach Jesus. Throughout the day, every day, there are countless opportunities to check in with Jesus in whatever situation we are in. Jesus says to us:
“Come, come as you are – just come. I am your friend; I am here, waiting for you.”
So let us accept his invitation – and be people in whom the love and acceptance of Jesus is obvious to all.
