I was racing to Cambridge from an unexpected detour back to London, multiple trains, underground connections, and a cab ride, I came in on the evening worship. Ian Hamilton wasn't preaching and at first I was readying myself to be disappointed. Ted Donnelly from northern Ireland was filling the pulpit very ably.
"Show me Jesus," was his reoccurring Theme throughout. With feeling and simplicity he urged us to urge our pastors to show us Jesus in every worship service and sermon, to look for Jesus in our reading of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. He argued that this was Jesus' purpose in his earthly ministry and referenced the road to Emmaeus passage Luke 24:27 where Jesus showed them through all the scriptures himself therein. It was thrilling and encouraging to hear him preach Christ so clearly and with such passion.
Great to see Ian and Joan Hamilton again, never long enough, and Andrew and Annabelle Haylet and some of their children, and others in that blessed body of Christians. May Christ continue to be high and lifted up here.
