Morning meeting 09/06/2019

Today was another special day at Bellshill, not just because we celebrated Pentecost but because Samantha Paterson was enrolled as a junior soldier during this morning’s meeting.

At the start of worship the band played James Anderson’s march The Pioneers, which features the chorus I Have Decided To Follow Jesus. This was an appropriate choice, as while we played the march, the corps flag was brought into the hall, followed by Samantha and our commanding officers Chris and Lynda.

Today as we celebrate Pentecost, Major Lynda told us that as we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit, we remember that the Holy Spirit brings unity, so we must continue breaking down barriers so the Holy Spirit will fall afresh on us all.

The message from the band today fitted perfectly, as we played Fall Afresh by Daniel Iverson (arr. Andrew Mackereth) and is associated with this chorus

Spirit of the living God,
Fall afresh on me.
Spirit of the living God,
Fall afresh on me.
Break me, melt me, mould me, fill me;
Spirit of the living God,
Fall afresh on me.

At the end of the meeting the band played the music we associate with the song Heaven Came Down.

O, what a wonderful, wonderful day
Day I will never forget
When I was wandering in darkness away
Jesus my Savior I met
O, what a tender compassionate Friend
He met the need of my heart
Shadows dispelling with joy I am telling
He made all the darkness depart

Heaven came down and glory filled my soul
When at the cross my Savior made me whole
My sins were washed away
And my night was turned to day
When heaven came down and glory filled my soul

Please pray for Samantha, our newest junior soldier, in these coming days as she continues to learn more about Jesus and grows in her Christian experience.
