This week we are starting a new series on the Promises of God, beginning with a talk from Kevin. There is a great deal of encouragement to be taken from God's promises, but also a challenge to be met - as seen in 2 Chronicles 7:14, where God tells Solomon "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
This was said in response to the building of the temple in Jerusalem, but the good news is that, through Jesus Christ, there is a new covenant for us all. If we seek God in the same way, He will listen to our prayers and His forgiveness is promised to us too.
