God's faithfulness in action

23 November 2014 Wesley Impact! TV

This week on Wesley Impact! TV we meet Pastor Dani Cherrie and the Rev Dr Keith Garner explores Matthew.

Dani's story
Pastor Dani Cherrie shares how God has been faithful through many different seasons of her life. These include being thrown off a horse as a young woman and breaking her back, cycling around Europe and her life in the Middle East, where she was married to a Muslim man. She tells how even when she felt a million miles away from God, He brought hope into her life, and expresses her wish that others know God's faithfulness in their lives as she has known it in hers.

Wesley Mission story—Wesley Operation Hope
Today we hear the story of Sinead who became violent at school when fellow students taunted her. When she first came to Wesley Operation Hope, she was quiet, nervous and out of her comfort zone. She recalls that the kindness, care and listening ear she experienced there helped her see that what she was doing was wrong, improved her self esteem and confidence, and gave her new hope for the future. Sinead’s is just one of hundreds of stories from this remarkable program, is run onsite at Wesley Vision Valley. 

Keith's reflection
The Rev Dr Keith Garner looks at Matthew 25:31–40 in which Jesus distinguishes sheep, who are willing to be led by a shepherd, from goats who need to be driven from behind. This passage reminds us that we are accountable to God for our lives, that judgement is part of life, and that people can experience the care Jesus showed for the lowly in our compassionate actions.

Guest performers
Today we welcome gifted Australian performer Ann-Maree Keefe. Ann-Maree is an acclaimed song writer, writing prolifically over the years to amass a large body of work including her solo material, worship songs for the wider church and even kids songs. We are also joined by Wesley Impact! TV's talented singer and worship leader Deborah Ezzy, who has been backing vocalist for the Wesley Impact! TV band since it began.
