Sunday night saw the coming together of 5000 believers from churches all over Christchurch. It was an amazing sign of unity and faith and love. The story of how the Gospel reached the shores of Aotearoa was explained and you could not help but be amazed at how God used so many people to see the message of forgiveness and Grace spread throughout the country. Rev Samuel Marsden preached the first Gospel message on Christmas Day in 1814. And today the Gospel is still being preached. Our amazing National Anthem was sung by all 5000 in attendance. The words of the Anthem, a prayer of declaration over the nation…God Defend New Zealand!
I believe there are great things ahead for us as a Church in the City and as a Nation. I believe the Churches in the City will be at the forefront of seeing a fresh move of His Spirit throughout the nation. It’s time to get excited about the Church and to get on board with what God is doing. Let’s not miss this opportunity to live out our faith in these last days.
God Defend New Zealand – God Save New Zealand!
