The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Fellowship and Discipleship
Pastor Allan was preaching as I took notes and present his digested sermon.
Reach for Hope.Turmoil will come but God will carry you
There was famine in the land,
but God told Elijah to go to a brook and pray.
1 Kings 17:6 The
ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the
evening, and he drank from the brook.
When the brook dried up, God
sent Elijah to fellowship with a widow woman and her son.
In the New Testament, the
healthy church worshipped and also fellowshipped together.
Acts 2:46Day after day they met in the temple [area]
continuing with one mind, and breaking bread in various private homes. They
were eating their meals together with joy and generous hearts,
Make it a point to fellowship
outside the church.Invite someone over
for a meal.Get to know one another and
pray one for another.
The people in Acts wanted to
be like Jesus; with an intense desire to be like Christ.Love and compassion was upper most in their
Acts 2:47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And
the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
realize not all of us are walking where God sees them in His plan, but God is
revealing deeper truth, showing how to walk circumspective before God and with
one another.It is important to rise up
to our potential in Christ.
It is essential to reach
higher and deeper in Christ.It is not
about control or being bound by rules, but learning to be led by the Holy
Spirit and to hear the voice of God.
Some people struggle here,
others struggle over there;We can’t
judge, but also we can’t have a double standard in our walk with God.Each of us is responsible for ourselves.
It is not our job to correct
others.Let the Word, and the Holy
Spirit do that.
Keep it simple:
relationship with Jesus.
2.Make time to read
God’s Word and pray.
3.Be filled and led
by the Holy Spirit.
Do you want to be better,
than come to our classes and learn how.Be teachable and willing to change as God reveals truth to you. It is good to be accountable to other brothers and sisters in the Lord.
We are seeing great things,
as people find their way to the cross to receive Jesus.
Then on the other side of the
cross we are discovering Resurrection Life and walking in the Holy Spirit.
We are to be examples to the
next generation, not just to children.God is requiring us to become disciples and learn from Him.
We need more love, more fruit
of the Holy Spirit, and to be able to share outside the church.
It is good to have a Bible
Study with discussion, but be built up to go out and share with others.
