On the 12th-16th April we had a series of special services on the topic “Is this As Good As It Gets, or Can We Hope For More?” We had previously put out invites throughout the town of Airdrie, and were glad to have some visitors who came in as a result of getting a leaflet through the letterbox. We also had some friends and family come as well as some from Glasgow RPC.
On Wednesday night, Rev. McCollum preached on ‘Eat, Drink, and be Merry’ from Luke 12:13-34. He made the point that this life is not all there is, and we are in danger of forgetting that we have a soul and are accountable to God.
On Thursday night, Rev. McCollum preached on ‘Something Better to Do?’ from Luke 14:1-24. He spoke of the reality of Heaven but also all the excuses people make to avoid believing in Christ’s
On Friday night, Rev. McCollum preached on ‘Lost and Found’ from Luke 15:11-32 – the story of the prodigal son. He made the point that we need to repent of living for the here and now and turn to the Lord for forgiveness.
Lord’s Day morning the sermon was on ‘My Best Life Now’ – the Rich Man and Lazarus from Luke 16:19-31. Rev. McCollum set forward the powerful reality of Hell and our need to heed the warnings of Scripture. In the evening the sermon was on ‘Shame and Self-Image’ from Luke 18:9-14. Rev. McCollum spoke on how we can view ourselves quite self-righteously, but we need to see ourselves accurately as sinners needing salvation.
