Welcome to our Website. We hope you'll enjoy your visit and discover something special that is meaningful to your life. People that hear about us ask what type of church we are. In a nutshell, we are a, Bible-based congregation of believers who adhere solidly to the sovereignty of God in all things, which includes salvation. Our core principles are mostly shared with Baptists around the world, but held by most Christian denominations to a lesser or greater extent.

Logos Community Church, or LOGOS as we affectionately call it, is a community of faith, passionate to see the grace of God transform lives, families, communities, and culture.

Behind this passion is our commitment to the Gospel of Christ and the Word of God. We take Jesus simple command to make disciples of all nations seriously. We feel that disciples are made best in the context of a healthy local church where believers feel safe enough to pursue their destiny in Christ under the leadership of loving and merciful under-shepherds.

Please continue to browse our website ... see what we're all about. If you live in Polokwane or are a visitor to Polokwane, we encourage and welcome you to visit with us personally either during one of our worship times or during the week.

Above all, we desire and pray that you will consider your all-important relationship with the Lord. And we encourage you to click on "The Gospel Truth in a nutshell" link on our website to confirm that your relationship with Him is biblical.

May God bless you!

One of the most comforting songs to sing

during lockdown is 'it is well with my soul'

Includes the tragic story, behind the song.

.

Our desire at Logos is to be authentic, to be real with God and real with one another. Maybe the words of John Poulton summarises it best: The most effective preaching comes from those who embody the things they are saying. They are their message. . . . Authenticity gets across from deep down inside people. . . . What communicates now is basically personal authenticity.

Logos is not going to grow through programmes, and we are not going to grow by sugar-coating the Word of God to make it pleasing. We are at present busy with some sermons through which to unite the congregation, and are looking forward to the radical changes that this book will bring to our lives. So as we continue into our 6th year of existence, let's keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and the Finisher of our faith...... Our message is Jesus, He is the living Word that exegeted the Father and a real and practical way. He is the Logos of Logos Community Church. Sure, we are a great family, who loves and cares for one another, but we are much more than that. We are the church of the Living God and the pillar of truth.

THIS SUNDAY AT 10:00

ON WHATSAPP

our prayer is that you will find our preaching fervent, biblical, Spirit-anointed, God-exalting and personally-helpful.

LIVING AN ABUNDANT CHRISTIAN LIFE

1 Corinthians 15:58 (ESV) 58Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain.”

Introduction.

This is day 87 of lockdown and a few things regarding Logos has come to my mind. Let me give direction to this sermon by sharing with you of a saying my principal at Seminary always said. He would walk into the class and say: “Where have you come from, where are you now, and where are you going?” He never elaborated, he left us to fill in the blanks. It is always helpful to take stock. It increases our gratitude; it increases our joy and it increases our commitment to the future. So often when we consider ‘now’ we are become despondent, but then we think back to where we came from and suddenly, we realize just how blessed we are. That in itself invokes energy for the future.

I often sit wondering what Logos is going to look like after lockdown. Are we all going to be back, or will some start living their lives without a thought for the gathered church and stay away out of habit? Or, are we going to show greater commitment to worship? Are we going to put our shoulder to the wheel collectively, and work hard for a great future? Are we going to coast or are we going to run the race set before us?

Jesus said in John 10:10 (ESV) “… I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”

Michael prayed and thanked the Lord that I care for the body which is evident in my devotions. That is true, but it is even more than that. I want you to sit under the word daily, and that you will learn a spiritual radical steadfastness which will keep us going into the future. I think 15 minutes a day for the Lord is no sacrifice at all.

In the text before us, Paul’s heart is ‘where are you now’, ignoring where have you come from and where are you going. By implication he knows that where you are now is going to determine where you are going. He says: “58Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain.”

That little word always, says a lot, doesn’t it? So, Christ gives us life abundantly, and Paul speaks about you living abundantly by “always abounding”. That means to without end, continuously, uninterruptedly, giving yourself fully to the Lord. Is this what we are going to see at Logos when we return.

Now remember that Paul is not writing these words to us void of context. He has just spent most of 1 Corinthians 15 to remind us that we serve a risen Saviour. He starts verse 58 with the word ‘therefore’ and therefore is linked to the previous verses talking about the power of the resurrection and the joy of serving a risen Saviour.

* He tells us in verse 14 that because Christ is raised from the dead preaching has a glorious eternal purpose, because if Christ were not raised preaching would be in vain. That is why I am committed to teaching the Word of God, no matter how complicated it is that we can grow thereby. Friends we need to be into Spiritual T-bone steaks. Time to leave the milk of the Word behind.

* He also tells us in verse 14 that because Christ is raised from the dead our faith is secure. If Christ were not raised from the dead our faith would be in vain.

* In verse 15 we see that because Christ is raised from the dead, we are true representatives of Jesus Christ. If Christ were not raised, we would be misrepresenting God.

* He tells us in verse 16-17 that because Christ is raised from the dead our sins are forgiven. If Christ were not raised, we would still be in our sins.

* He tells us in verse 18 that because Christ is raised from the dead we graduate to glory when we die. If Christ were not raised there is no resurrection of the dead.

* He tells us in verse 19 that because Christ is raised from the dead, we are of all people most to be envied. If Christ were not raised, we are of all people most to be pitied.

The joy for every believer is that verse 20 tells us that “Christ is risen indeed”.

So as a believer, you are in a position of high victory because death is defeated and it is from this position that Paul says to us today, 58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain.” So, it is with gratitude to the resurrection power of our Lord Jesus Christ, that we can look at verse 58 and embrace its truth now and forever.

Let me break this text into logical segments for a few moments and I trust that the Lord will use it in our lives today and into the future. I pray that the Holy Spirit will fill in the gaps by applying the word to your heart. Paul has three things to say to us namely:

Firstly: Be steadfast.

58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast,” Some translations actually say: “stand firm”.  Let me just point out that Paul is talking to us as fellow believers, which is why he can say ‘my beloved brothers’. In context that means all of us not just the men. He is speaking to those who are in Christ. Paul is discussing a lifelong process of living in Christ, a ‘now and forever process.’ I prefer the translation ‘be steadfast’ as it is in our text instead of ‘stand firm’ as the Greek word (hedraios) actually means to be seated.

So what Paul is saying to us is this. Do not move away from the seat of the security you have in the completed work of Christ through His resurrection. Be steadfast, hold fast to it, stand firm, sit tight, keep your seat,  don’t move, Jesus is risen and our hope, our faith and our labour is secure in nothing else than where we are seated. Do not let lockdown and the Corona virus unsettle you. As soon as we can come together again, you simply continue in your steadfastness. That is why the Hebrew writer can say in Hebrews 10:23 (ESV) “23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.”

Logos family, we must not grow tired or weary in our service to Him, we cannot let lockdown develop a complacency in us. He who promised is faithful, are we? You must live now for eternity.

Secondly: Be immovable.

Paul continues and says: “58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable,” or ‘let nothing move you’. At first glance, we would be tempted to think that "being steadfast" and being "immovable" mean the same thing, but there are some key differences between the two.

‘Being steadfast,’ or ‘sitting tight’, emphasizes the aspect of steadiness, while ‘being immovable’ emphasizes the aspect of faith that will not be shaken even in the worst of circumstances, even circumstances like we are in now. In Acts 27:41, the same Greek word is used to describe the condition of the boat Paul was on after it struck the reef and ran aground. It was immovable because no matter what they did, it would not budge.

This same word should be able to be used about the character and faith of any individual Christian today. Paul says of the Gala

http://www.gracebc.org/hp_wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/why-jesus-powerpoint-title.jpgWithout a doubt, Jesus Christ has impacted history. Two billion people accross the world claim to be His followers. Yet there are sceptics, some claim that He never existed while there are more than 24 000 manuscripts that make reference to Jesus, yet the same people believe that Julius Caesar existed when there are only 252 manuscripts that make reference to him. Well, they will claim that at least they have coins with his imprint, but yet Caeser died, and yet today Christ's imprint is still seen in the lives of Billions of followers.

Either Christ is the biggest hoax in history and needs to be ignored, or the message of Christ is the greatest truth ever and Jesus needs to be followed. Click on the link 'why Jesus' and judge for yourself wether Christ is who He claimed to be.

Sermonettes

2 Corinthians 1:3

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

Romans 8:37-38

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Food for thought

“If you don't feel strong desires for the manifestation of the glory of God, it is not because you have drunk deeply and are satisfied. It is because you have nibbled so long at the table of the world. Your soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great.” John Piper
