1st Reading 1 John 4:1-6 (page 1227 of the pew Bibles)
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognise the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5 They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognise the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
2nd Reading Matthew 7:15-20 (page 972 of the pew Bibles)
15 ‘Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognise them. Do people pick grapes from thorn-bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognise them.
SPLASH Light Party will be on Saturday 25th October at 5pm at Hapton Methodist Church
A monthly Saturday evening family activity held in the Methodist Church for children and their parents. Tea is served at 5pm before games and crafts themed on a short children’s Christian talk by one of our local ministers. We have a brew before the evening finishes at 7pm. Donations are gratefully received.
Run jointly by St Margaret's and
Hapton Methodist Churches.
