Message from Rob
Last Sunday we had a great time at our Combined Parish Service. With almost 80 people present, we had a good reason to be thankful for our church building in Yeppoon. Some local churches don’t have buildings large enough to have more than 50 people present under COVID restrictions. What a wonderful reminder of God’s blessing upon our Parish, being able to gather, united, in our own building in one place.
As is our practice, the Parish Wardens updated us on our Parish life, and it was good to be encouraged by what is happening.
As part of their presentation, I shared with the Parish, my joy in how we have worked together during these difficult COVID times. With the Parish implementing all the necessary COVID measures, I have been impressed and encouraged by how we have adapted and how we have been willing to change our way of life. We understand the need to keep one another safe and we desire safety for one another. Even with something as precious as Communion, something so personal and so important to us. Even here we have adapted out of our love for one another and out of our desire to protect one another.
I thank you! Thank you for supporting me as I have sought to guide us through this most tumultuous time. Thank you for your love for one another that seeks to protect. May God continue to walk with us, protect us and bless us as we move forward together, as family.
Matthew 18:15-20 Conflict among God’s people.
15 “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.
16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses.
17 If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
18 Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
How should Jesus’ body, the church deal with sin?
1. When a fellow Christian sins against you, talk with them.
2. When that doesn’t work, the church has Jesus helping them with discipline.
The members of Christ’s church need to deal with sin in a way that honours Christ, remembering the eternal consequences.

In a world where men are told to “Man Up” but they don’t know what that means, and they actually feel more like a “Man Down” or “Man Overboard”, it’s hard to know how to live the good life.
At CQMC20, we’ll consider what it means to live well and die well as God’s man in a challenging world as we look at Paul’s second letter to his young friend Timothy.
In this letter, Paul speaks man to man and tells Timothy to ‘man up’!
He urges him to stick to the gospel, put in hard yards for Jesus every day, get over his insecurity and live to please God alone. Paul warns him that living for Jesus will never be easy, but that it is always worth it, because the gospel is the only real hope for men (and women) in this world.
It will be a day of straight talking, upfront honesty and above all, a great reminder of the fact that God has already given us everything we need to be godly men in our challenging world.
