Here at Beautiful Saviour Ministries, we would like to acknowledge that today is Australia Day. For our overseas visitors, Australia Day commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain, and the raising of the Union Jack at Sydney Cove by its commander Captain Arthur Phillip, in 1788. The Reverend Richard Johnson was also a part of the First Fleet, and on Sunday, February 3, 1788, he preached the first sermon in Australia. His text came from Psalm 116:12. This is what he read in his KJV Bible. “What shall I render unto the Lord for all His benefits toward me?” The NLT says this in my Bible. “What can I offer the Lord for all He has done for me?” Evangelical Christianity was there at the beginning of the formation of this nation we call Australia, and please God it will continue as we long for revival in what has been referred to as “The Great Southland of the Holy Spirit.”
For further reading on the Christian heritage of Australia, please go to the following website:
Let us pray for this nation of Australia and her people. We need prayer here as much as anyone else throughout the world does. I would ask on this January 26 you spend a moment praying that God will be honoured in Australia and that we would see an outpouring of His Holy Spirit throughout this land. Please continue to pray for those who have suffered much from the floodwaters that have ravaged parts of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
