Faith and hope are important but they can and never will take the top place because that is filled by love. Why? Because God is love. It’s His very nature, who He is and what He does.
About Mark Walker
What do you love about the city you live in? I love the size of Manchester. It feels like it has a similar buzz to London and yet doesn’t feel too big and being on the doorstep to some great countryside makes it the perfect place to live!
What is your favourite scripture and why? Jeremiah 32v40. God will never stop doing me good and will inspire me to live right for him – how good is that!
What is your dream holiday destination on earth or otherwise? There’s so many places I would love to go to but Canada has always been near the top of my list…no idea why but it is!
What 3 items do you always pack when you go on mission? Obviously a bible, a passport and probably a lightweight rain coat – I’ve been in too many places where it has thrown it down!

One of the purposes of the sabbath is to give us the space to rest, to switch off from work and recharge so that we then work from a restful state.
I love this aspect of the Holy Spirit because as I depend on Him each day I get the help that I need in every situation that I face.
One of the most amazing things I see with God is how He is longing to reward me.
This week we have been reading some amazing verses in 2 Corinthians 7 – 13 and in particular chapter 9 where we see Paul encouraging the church to be generous in every way they can. Verse 6 says ‘Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.’ I love this verse because it is not just linked to money. When we are generous in our time, in serving others, in blessing others, then we are not only going to see the other person blessed but we can know that we will reap a return that is going to be good!
