June 2019 – Chris Oldroyd
Chris Oldroyd spoke on being opportunists for God. Using 1 Cor 16:7-9 and Acts 19:1-7, 10-12 as his starting point, he pointed out how a great and effective door was opened for Paul. The Spirit of God had gone before Paul to prepare the way. Paul saw openings and took them. He took the opportunities that God had placed in front of him.
Our problem is that we don’t recognise the opportunities, or that we don’t take them. The more we take the opportunities, the easier it is for us to recognise them and take them. We grow in confidence for the next time.
How do we become opportunists for God?
*Move on a hunch – most of the time it is God.
*Take courage and act.
The meeting concluded with a good time of ministry with a number of people being blessed and receiving healing for ailments.
