A special welcome to those new students and their families who have commenced with us this term.
Term 2 is always a very busy term with secondary exams, athletics carnivals, da Vinci Decathlon, NAPLAN, Bike for Bibles and much more. This term we will again be running a number of key information evenings for Years 9 and 11 2019. We hope that the relevant parents will be able to join us for these events.
This weekend our Bike for Bibles team will be riding from Canberra to ICS. Please pray for safety and that the money raised will go to the furthering of God’s kingdom. In Romans 3 we are reminded that Christ died for sinners. In his death on the cross, Jesus demonstrated God’s righteousness and showcased both God’s justice and his mercy. Romans 3:23 – 26: “…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.”
As Christian people we give thanks that God is a just and holy God who, in his grace, has rescued us from our sin. We should uphold that which is just and true and noble and remember that God is merciful to us and that we should also be merciful and compassionate to others.
