Worship and Sabbath

The service at Redeemer Church of Dubai was worshipful and meaningful once again.  The talk this week was HOW LONG? taken from Habakkuk 1 and 2.  Is God just?  Is God faithful?  What is God doing?  We were reminded that God is always just in his punishment, He is always faithful to fulfill his promises and He is always  glorified in his purposes,

Communion was wonderful, sharing the bread and the wine with like minded people from around the world.  Once again, the songs we sang spoke to me and brought the service to a climax singing Behold the Lamb and By Faith during communion.

Behold the Lamb who bears
Our sins away, slain for us
And we remember
The promise made that all who came in Faith
Find forgiveness at the cross

So we share in this bread of life,
And we drink of His sacrifice
As a sign of our bond of peace
Around the table of the King.

We will stand as children of the promise
We will fix our eyes on Him,
Our souls's reward
Till the race is finished 
And the work is done
We'll walk by Faith and not by sight.

The congregation sings together with one voice and in harmony, sensing, knowing when to raise their voice as one in praise.  I walk away truly feeling the presence of God and the unity of the body.

The rest of the day was quiet, reflective, peaceful...with tacos for dinner.
