January 2016

A New year for “Limitless Living”
As we move into 2016 none of us know what it holds – for us personally or as a body of God's people in Siem Reap. But we do know who "holds the future". This thought is picked up in a now-famous poem quoted by British King George VI in his first Christmas radio message at the beginning of the Second World War:
And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year:
“Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.”
And he replied: “Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God.
That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.”
So I went forth, and finding the Hand of God, trod gladly into the night.

But sometimes our lack of faith can mean that we "limit" God. We see Him as less than he is and fail to grasp the significance of what Jesus said in John 10:10: "I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
In a short series "Limitless Living" from 17th January we will be exploring this theme looking specifically at "faith", "grace", "wisdom" and "light".
